I tried the balance & brighten in medium that came with the Toast of the Town Kit (you can see my review for that). This powder matched my skin tone perfectly and did not cake on me at all. In fact, I layered it on under my eyes, and this is where most mineral powders will really accentuate any lines under my eyes and make me look 10 years older. Those are the pros for this powder. The major con is that it wears off very quickly. We're talking two hours and that's wearing it over LG's Spackle. At the end of the day, my skin looked naked and hardly ANY color came off on my cleansing cloth. The blush in mimosa also wore off completely just as quick.

Went in to Ulta today because I had been wanting to try this forever. I am fair skinned, oily most of the time, and I religiously use Jergens Natural Glow facial moisturizer, which gives me a nice, slight color. That being said, I think the Fair color matches very well. (If I didn't use the facial tanner, I think this color may be a bit too dark for me) I really love how this powder/foundation is chalky and airy when applied. It really does give me nice coverage, and I can control how much coverage I want in different areas. I use it with my favorite Revlon ColorStay powder in Light/Medium for a very polished look. I am very impressed with this product, and wil continue to use it.

I had really wanted to try this for a long time and finally gave in. I usually use BE matte foundation, which is good, I just wanted to try something new. I got the shade fair and I am about a NC25 and its a perfect match for me. It might be too yellow for people with different undertones. The powder is very fine which is nice, but then there is a lot of fall out, which is not nice. It comes in a dome shape because it baked and there is already a dent in the dome and I've only been using it less than a week. I've worn it for up to 9 hours and it still looked pretty good and I have combo skin. If I had better skin it would be great, because it really does balance. I did not notice any brightening effect. However I have hyperpigmentation and this just does nothing for it. I understand that its not going to be full-coverage, but some days I want a lighter foundation (and I'm in a hurry) and use powder. So in comparison to BE matte and even a Milani powder foundation I have, it does not stack up. It has very little coverage for something that is supposed to be a foundation. My Mac MSFN and Physicians Formula powders, not foundations just powders, have more coverage than this. To sum up, the fall-out factor, little coverage and high-price makes this not worth it (For me at least).

I wasn't a huge fan of this product in the beginning, but now wear it every day. I put some corrective concealer under my eyes, and on blemishes then pat and swipe this over my face with a CoverFX Powder Foundation brush (amazing). And then i add some cream blush over (yes, over the powder). It's great, very finely milled, and not too powdery. I'm a wannabe make up artist and I've done a few friends weddings (and the parties). I use this on them, and it looks great!. If you have really good skin, it would be great just to swirl over and go.

I love this! I have it in the color fair,which is a pretty good match for me. I was previously using bare minerals matte which I liked but the coverage wasn't quite good enough for my skin. This provides very good coverage once layered a bit. I have mild rosacea and this covers it without irritating my skin. I have combo skin with a pretty oily t zone and this controls my oil pretty well. I set it w bare minerals SPF 25 mineral veil and it lasts all day! I will definitley repurchase this!

This foundation is made of creams that are swirled together before it's baked and the effect is cool, looks like a planet. I received the color "Regular/Medium" in the Vanilla Baked Nudes kit from Ulta.com (I mention this because counterfeit products do exist).I have tried to apply it with kabuki brush and a stiffer brush meant for bronzer but I have to apply it multiple times before I get to "foundation galaxy" (had to make a solar system pun, sorry). However I imagine that if your face isn't littered with acne scars like mine than you'd probably get away with a lighter coverage than what I need. I find that the color also oxidizes during the journey to bedtime and it settles into my oily areas, accentuating my pores. I like her blush and eyeshadow in the same kit but this foundation is a pass for me.However the only thing I like is the finish, it gives a nice mattified sheen. If you are familiar with DuWop's Mattilume or Physician's Formula Mineral Wear Illuminating Powder Duo, you'll know what I mean. I think I will use this up as a finishing powder but I won't purchase it again unless if it comes in a kit that I can't resist because of the blush or eyeshadow.

doesnt have enough coverage for a foundation alone... over another foundation probably would be better

I bought the light option thinking it would be OK on my fair skin but it looked very orange when I got it on.I find all LG products highlight my pores
