UPDATE: This has a high percentage of propylene glycol which won't matter to most of the population but if you have rosacea and know to watch out for this ingredient, approach with caution. After wearing this for 3 days this is burning my rosacea and turning me beet red. It's a *&%$*&^ shame! Still gets 5 lippies. Original review: We're all addicts, that's why we're here. But all of us are searching for different things: the best mascara, the newest product, the perfect skincare, etc. For me the makeup chase has always been about the perfect foundation. I thought I'd found the best I could 10 years ago when I discovered mineral makeup: it felt weightless, made my skin look flawless, lasted and worked well with my oilier skin. And then my skin got dry and subsequently minerals didn't work that well anymore so the foundation chase started all over. I took a chance on this foundation. Yes it is ungodly expensive but that price is not just for the makeup but for the delivery system, which delivers flawlessness. Yes, I said it. The sprayer is like no other if you think you've tried spray on makeup. The spray is so fine you can't feel it. Nothing gets on your hair or vanity. The first time I used this, I ended up spraying the device 3 times because initially I thought it defective--nothing seemed to be coming out. But after 3 times, my face seemed a little damp so I stopped. My face looked just like I moisturized but with no pores, no uneven coloring, my broken caps completely obliterated. My face looked just like I always dreamed it could look. And the makeup was weightless! It felt lighter than minerals. And it covered but felt like nothing. (I know I just said that but it bears repeating since it seems like a miracle.) I am in awe of this product. Yes I paid the horrible price, and I hope that one day soon this will go down in price or someone will make something like this cheaper but if you too have been chasing foundation perfection and would like flawless glowy coverage with a weightless feel you should get yourself to Saks to try this. Amazing stuff! Note: By the by they put me in a BR color since the Asian Sa I talked to over the phone said this would be best for my warm-toned LLL skintone. I still wonder about the O colors cause if I overspray this I can look a trifle bronzey but if I use only 2 sprays or less the color is undetectable and I'm very picky. It would be best to go to the store and check it out in person but unfortunately my stupid Saks doesn't carry this so once again I had to order and work with someone over the phone. AARGH!
