I was soooo hopeful about this product. It's a great concept - easy to use, light coverage (good for weekend errands or weekdays where I can get away with a more natural look), etc. Love the brush that came with it, too. It's really neat that you brush it on and then let it "set" (I usually do a couple of things while it sets, before I add color)...and, overall, this is a very natural-looking product...

But a few things...I agree w/ others that it seems to make pores look bigger. Yikes. Also, I've tried to use it on my nose but it's too shiny. So I could have gotten over that (by just using a diff. powder on my nose), but the big negative...my skin seems to be more breakout-prone when I wear it. Final bummer is the darned website and the color chart. I ordered #2, but it's just a tad too dark.

edited Aug. 2003 - I have to give up on this foundation. When I use it, my skin is irritated and bumpy at the end of the day. It's too bad, really - because it's such a great concept. Hopefully I'll find a similar product that is more suitable for my skin type.
