i like this product i just wish it would have worked on my skin tone. when i applied it, it looked very muddy and dirty. i really liked how sheer it was but it did feel a bit oily. this may work for people with darker skin but on me it just looked dirty and greasy
Aside from the crappy little sponge that is given, this product works wonderful for me. I also like that I use minimal product for all over coverage. It doesn't feel or look cakey. I never once had to touch up while I was out for about 4 hours. Forgot to mention that I did apply this over Philosophy' s "The Present". Glided right on!
Bought this in the Fast & Flawless kit so I could try different products. It's all going back to Sephora. I had this in a small sample size before and found it okay for stowing in your purse for emergencies etc. Purchasing the full size didn't turn out as well. If you're going to spend all that time applying this, why not just wear your regular foundation? Most of all, it just made look like a big oil-slick. continued >>
I loved this when I first got it. I saw videos on QVC as was also skeptical on how it would match every skintone (odd how they brought out a deep version!) but ordered it anyway. This was last summer and so it actually matched my skintone at the time very well, I would describe it as medium to medium-tan. It also makes your skin feel gorgeous, really soft and velvetty.
However I did go through it very quickly and soon bought another, and another! My only problem with this, other than the fact that it is far too orange for my skin in winter, is that it causes me to breakout. I tried this again a couple of days ago and sure enough after the second day of wear I had developed some of those painful lumpy under the skin spots around my jaw line.
All in all, this is a good product if your skin is medium all year round and dry as this product is very moisturising. It doesn't cause my sister to breakout so I guess that aspect varies from person to person. Don't write it off completely because of the bad reviews though, give it a go and make up your own mind.
I got this a sample from Sephora and I tried it on all over on my face. It appeared like powdery at first, thought I liked it, but an hour later my skin turned into very shiney and greasy. I did not like it. It came off very easily and I had to re-touch up to reduce the greasy, but it made even worse! I felt like I want to wipe them off when I feel very greasy. I would never use this again and I threw them away. Glad it was a free sample than buy the whole thing. Save your money if you trust this.
I was skeptical of how a product could match nearly everyone's skintone, but when I tested it in Sephora, it blended into my cheek and jaw perfectly. However, once I bought it and got home, I put it all over my whole face and it looked like an orange mask (my skin is on the cusp of light-medium).
The texture is kind of odd, too. Its very greasy when you first put it on- like butter. I could get used to it if the color worked for me, but there is nothing working for me here. If I had checked the reviews first, I probably would not have bought this.
Good for a matt even finish, bad for breakouts. Expensive for a product that with daily use you'll get through in four weeks. Slightly boring on the skin, good packaging. So fine for fun, not to be taken seriously ALTHOUGH if you have any trouble finding a shade to suit you I've seen this colour match anyone...
I was not thrilled with 'some kind-a gorgeous'. For a start, it only comes in two shades; 'dark' or 'light', and the light really isn't very light at all. I have a hell of a time finding foundation that matches my skin tone as I am very pale, so it's not all that surprising that some kind-a gorgeous, with its limited range of tints, didn't suit me - but even their 'pale' shade is quite dark, and a little bit orange. As others have said, the coverage is very, very minimal and it tends towards being quite shiny (I would suggest wearing loose powder over it). There is also not a hell of a lot of product in the compact, for the price (although it should be noted that I live in Australia, and benefit products are incredibly expensive over here, I assume due to import tax). Having said that, its a great product if you have near flawless skin in the first place, and just want something that will even out your skintone. It also works better when paired with a good concealer. The packaging is very cute, too - but I would definitely not purchase it again.
I bought this product in Deep with the Fast an Flawless collection. Right now I am very tan from the tanning bed and my skin looks pretty good without foundation to start with. I apply it with the Mac 187 brush, looks like a stippling brush. Anyway my skin is normal and I just stipple and then blend with this brush and use this product as my foundation. It looks Fabulous. It feels like I'm not wearing foundation and my skin is flawless looking. I love it. My only concern is that when my tan fades the color will not look good, and I don't know how I feel about the lighter shade. Supposedly it's a two sizes fit all product, but I don't know.
The product is Ok, but not food enough for its price. It makes me look tired.
