If you've got rosacea like me this is a great product. I used mint, which gave me light overall green coverage that corrected the red nicely. I used MUFE green #17 over dark red problem spots and the 2 together gave me a very smooth, natural color-corrected palate.
I don't like a foundation heavy look so I applied Chanel CC cream over this and finished with Ben Nye banana powder. It gives me light enough coverage my natural skin shines through without the red yet I don't look like I'm covered in pancake batter.
Some green creams build up in large Poors and make you look like you've got green dots all over your face. This cream didn't do that. I'll see how it holds up over a few hours but my initial impression is thumbs up.
HG product for sure. I have EXTREMELY red skin as well as extremely fair skin. I am a perfect match for the NC15 Fix Powder + Foundation, which is a truly neutral extremely light color. However, that's only on my neck and inner arms. Because my face is so red, it looks at least 2-3 shades darker than my neck just naturally, especially under foundation. Even when the foundation is actually a good match, it looks like it's too dark. it's very frustrating.
Enter this product, which whitens and brightens under makeup. I got the mint choux. At first I HATED this stuff. It seemed very drying, highlighted flakes, and really badly settled into pores. Yuck. I was super upset, waste of money.
Then I tried something else, I primed with a light face oil (Nuxe to be specific), then put on my normal silicone primer (I adore Tony Moly pore balm), and smoothed this over the top. That did the trick! It COULD be worn alone if you don't over-apply it, but it does have a tendency to make me look a little seasick (it is green after all) even if it is a good match on my skin. When I put foundation or BB Cream over the top, it is a much closer match to my neck, much brighter and just, perfect looking. It makes me proud of my porcelain skin rather than wanting to get a tan. It's just so, flawless and bright! It really makes an amazing difference. I know it sounds a bit like an unnecessary extra step, but it really makes everything look so so so much brighter and lovely. It also has SPF, smells nice (but not too strong), has a gorgeous jar, makes my skin much softer, and does not have any glitter or shimmer to it.
This is definitely one to try if you're looking for a brightener.
This is an absolute lifesaver. I have very pale skin that's unevenly colored in areas and noticeable pores on my cheeks. Even without bb cream on top this completely evens out my skin. It's great for both days when I don't want to wear bb cream as well as the days when I want a little more coverage with it underneath. I honestly couldn't get by without it.
i have mine in berry choux (02), i have some redness on my face but i dont think mint choux would blend so well on my skin, so i decided to buy berry choux.
it's nice, and give me a nice dewy-to-glow finish.. oil control is so-so .. and it's texture is really like "choux", which is lovely. It's easier to blend than bb cream, and have such a nice strawberry/raspberry scent which i love.
SPF 25 PA ++ is a nice add, so you can use it as tinted moisturizer.. but dont forget to reapply ~
the packaging is lovely, but somehow it's kinda heavy, unpractical and less hygiene.
