After reading all the raving reviews about this, I went to try it at Saks but I couldn't bite the bullet of $150. So when I was visiting Japan over the holidays, I bought the starter kit at the duty free for 9500Yen, which is about $85, roughly 1/2 the price of Saks. I was skeptical at the time so I didn't buy refills. But I just ordered 2 sets of refills becuase I LOVE IT!! One little packet last me about 2 months. I have NC35 combination skin with occasional breakouts, although my skin has been clear & smooth since I started using Paula's Choice stuff in last July. So while I'm using this, I never needed to put on another layer of foundation or concealer underneath. It mades my face look like a porcelaine doll and it doesn't feel like I was wearing anything on my face. It's very easy to use as well, much better than DIOR's spray foundation. I feel it made me look younger because I no longer have a cake foundation/concealer mask look on my face. The price, even w/ Japanese yen discount, is still expensive. But since I'm no longer paying $50 for Diorshows, I allow myself to endulge this one. :D In terms of color, this OB-4 is like the darkest color in Japan, but still very light on me, but I noticed that it's hard to tell b/c the sprayed layer is so fine & light. My face just looks very natural & glowing. I don't put powder after that, fearing to diminish this glowing result. I'll try the colors in Saks after I'm done with my refills.
