Too much shimmer, doesn't exactly highlight as well as my NARS illuminator. Packaging is horrible when traveling, a lot of the product spills over onto the lid. Not repurchasing.
I used this because my mom bought it, and it was too light on her. I have light skin and this was just a bit dark for me, but it did not look orange at all. I would put it on ontop of my foundation and it gave me a natural look, I LOVED it! In the summer my skin always looked perfect. I always wore sunblock on my face, so my face was a little lighter which is why this was perfect. It gave me that natural glow- not dark at all. I did not use the brush- i used one of my own and it was one that was connected to a bottle of shimmer used to give a pinkish natural glow with sparkles. It was a perfect combination! Cant think of the name right now, I can update this later. You can find it in any drug store pretty much.
The only bad thing about this product is the packaging. The lid doesnt stay on at all and you cant carry it around because it will come off. I used a rubber band around it but who wants to go through that trouble? Also whenver I close it a lot of the minerals go loose and cover my sink/counter in the make up which is also very annoying to clean because it stains!! I would rate a 3.5, great great GREAT product but the packing is what is keeping it from a 5
I bought this several years ago, the first time I used it I thought it was too pink for my skintone. After some time, I rediscovered it and I LOVE IT!
It is so amazing how it can cover so naturally my terrible acne and cystic breakouts, like it just falls in the right places. The pinkiness doesn't bother me anymore as I figured out how to balance it.
Lasts all day for me (I'm not oily at all), and blends like a charm.
Great for mineral makeup virgins and anyone really!
This product is wonderful. I have very pale skin, so it is hard to find a powder that doesn't make me look orange nor one that washes me out. This is my perfect match, I've never had a problem with it and am defiently buying another one. Although the package looks quite small, it last for a long time. The only bad thing I can think about this powder is the brush, I don't like those size brushes although it works perfectly fine, I prefer my MAC powder brush. An amazing product, if you are pale like me, this is the product for you.
I've been wearing this foundation for about 2 months. So I can honestly say I love it! I was previously using neutrogena mineral foundation which was great but it was almost 15 bucks. That's a tad pricey in my opinion. So I searched for a cheaper alternative. Walgreens had a bogo half off sale so I picked up 2 for 14 not too bad. It works wonderfully it gives me the light wear I want its breathable and looks natural on. It does a great job of covering up acne marks and evening out your skin tone without making you look like your wearing a mask. Its pretty long wearing I work 10 hr days and it last pretty well throughout. I also haven't had any problems with it breaking me out which is a must in a foundation. I'll keep buying this as long as they make it.
I really love this foundation! I look flawless on this foundation. Literally. Great product. I would recommend this product who desires an airbrushed perfect look.
I used to buy this stuff religiously because i'm makeup-challenged and I thought it worked for me. However, I have since discovered better stuff like Loreal True Match. I stopped buying this and haven't gone back. The container says no preservatives, fragrance, oils or Talc. So i'm guessing it's a heathier alternative but coverage wise it didn't work well for me when I was tan and when I was very pale.
I am very pale and I got this in shade 2 light. It is slightly orange tinted. It looks very unnatural because no matter how much you blend it, the orange tint never goes away.It also looks very powdery and cakey.
It claims to:
1. provide flawless coverage
2. make your skin clearer, smoother and more radiant, even when you're not wearing it
It did not do either of these things. My skin actually looked dull and overly matte. There was no improvement in my skin after taking it off. The packaging is also terrible. I wish it was similar to bare minerals, so that I could prevent the product from spilling out like it did. Waste of money. Will not buy this again.
I got nude light 4 shade the other day and tested out last night. The powder itself is pretty good I would say and compared with high end loose powder products, it works just the same. However, the color shows on your face may not necessarily look the same in the container. So, be careful when you select your color. As far as quality is concerned, I think it's satisfying.
As below, i also have a love hate relationship with this product after using it for 3 years.
My skin type is oily, acne prone, normally skin gets shiny after an hour of application.
I found this foundation to hold great coverage and didnt break my skin out further than my skin already is, i used sandy beige and pure beige. It was a good deal for the $25AUD price you would pay for
I actually found there was more cons to using this product as it looked like i was wearing make up, it didnt blend into my skin and the texture looked cakey i felt after a few hours. The foundation was quite messy which was a pain when there would be heaps of powder remaining ontop of the case. The brush was awful and after a few uses, became stiff held more powder on it than it left on my face. Dry skin is pretty bad too as it becomes obvious.
I always found that i had to use a finishing veil ontop of the powder because it just doesnt hold shine.
Overall i would repurchase, however I have heard in australia colours are becoming limited due to discontinuing product in near future.
