What's a PPP goil to do? Anything w/ "bronzer" colours in it makes my skin just look dirty (yes: even the mildest bronze tones)-- & peach colours either don't show up at all (such as in NARS' over-rated "O" blush); or when they do, they look utterly orange-y & false. [Actually, I notice that to be true about peach shades on LOTS of women, btw: not just those-of-us-with-the-ultra-pale-skin!) "Soft & Gentle" sounds like it's the closest colour to anything from this line that would work for a PPP -- but a "peachy-pink w/bronzer"? I can't beleve it'll work on milk-white skin (see why in above comments.) Will someone convince me otherwise, please -- i.e., any OTHER PPP's OUT THERE for whom this TRULY worked, including when examined under real sunlight? Many thanks, for so far I'm utterly disappointed! NB: Even though real-true PPP's, comparatively speaking, are a much rarer group than any other skin tone in the USA (yet look at girls/women in places like Finland, Sweden, Iceland, & Celtic countries, & you'll find we're the MAJORITY for once), PPP's are't SO rare in the U.S. that MAC & the other companies should ignore us as much as they do... but alas.... Thing is, as the PPP's make loud & clear here on MUA & other similar sites, I too LOVE my skin-colour, & absolutely wouldn't change it for the world! However I certainly would indeed appreciate a little more acknowledgement -- in the form of more appropriately-coloured products -- from the cosmetic companies. They'd MAKE money -- not lose it!
