$36 down the drain. I hate everything about this product. The texture is greasy going on and never dries, the color is a ridiculous candy pink (hardly natural, even on my cool toned, fair skin), and you have to use a lot to get any color payoff at all, which is annoying when there isn't a whole lot of product to begin with. Whenever I use this (and I keep trying, hoping I'll change my mind), my face just feels dirty.
For $36, I was expecting more from this product. I love the innovation of how the gel works with your natural tone to create a custom colour for you, but I found that you need a lot of product to achieve colour. That being said, you don't really get a whole lot of product. I loved the texture of it though, it was slippery and applied effortlessly to the apples of my cheeks.
I like Tart's blush sticks so I thought I would like this. Wrong:( This was very disappointing. The color was not quite right but the biggest problem was the slippery slimy texture. By the end of the day it felt like someone had blown their nose on my face (sorry for the visual)
I live in Texas and we sweat a lot here so I truly looked like an absolute disaster. When I use my regular blush (mineral fushion) when I sweat I look like I have a natural glow and it doesn't run or smudge. However, with o-glow it was patchy and smeared. I was so embarrassed I had to make an emergency pit stop at home to wash off this clown makeup.
I tried to jump on the bandwagon with all the new products that "naturally fit your skin tone!" but it just wasn't all that great. Yes it made my cheeks have a nice pink color, but it didn't really dry and then melted away.
I love this stuff and I'm surprised it didn't get better reviews. When I first used it I was very surprised to see that clear fluid came out. I thought maybe the formula was bad and went to dab it on a kleenex and realized the kleenex was pink. That's when I started just applying it to my cheeks with my fingers and I have to say this stuff is so cool. Unlike others I liked the slippery application because it allowed me to time to work with the color before it set. True to it's name the results of this is a glow from within so don't expect a lot of color payoff. I like color payoff, but I'm so impressed with this product that I'm going to keep it on my "natural" days when I want to look good without it being obvious that I'm wearing makeup (think camping). I will definitely repurchase!
This is a really pretty gloss, but it didn't do anything fantastic that would make me purchase it again. It's a nice formula and a sheer pink color that looks good on most.
This did not work for me at all. All I got was this reddish pink color that looked like I had windburn. Way too slippery of an application. I have rather oily skin and this has the same feel as the smashbox primer has. That doesn't work on my skin either. Great concept.
Despite the advertisements, this product does not bring out the natural flush in your cheeks. I conducted the following experiment: Pinch your cheek, allowing the blood to flow in that area. Then, apply O-Glow beside the flushed area and compare the two colors. The shades are different, and thus, the product does not provide the color that your face would naturally produce. I received an unnaturally pink hue. In addition, by applying O-Glow on the apples of the cheeks, the color becomes concentrated in that specific area. The only way to create a natural and attractive look is to add a darker blush or bronzer along the cheekbone. Otherwise, you may look like a made-up doll with bubble-gum colored cheeks. Overall, the packaging is convenient and of good quality. Lastly, the product is fun to use, but its results are horribly flawed.
URGH!! I hated this product! I bought because I saw makeup by tiffany use it and it seemed like a good concept. I bought it with the best of smashbox volume 2 at sephoria. I tried this on my cheeks and it felt so slimy and gross!! I am oily skin too..so after I applied it it seemed to slid right off me. I wanted to like this product, so I tried powdered blush over it and it did nothing, it still felt gross underneath it. I am returning the whole kit, since I only bought it for the O-glow and I am not to enthusatic about the other stuff in it.
I got this because I thought it looked really cool, and it does work. Then I realised that it looks verry cheap looking on my cheaks If i wear powder underneath it.
Otherwise I think it is only good for if you only wear only foundation.
I will not buy this again.
