I've been very curious about this product for some time, and I finally got a sample from Sephora a couple weeks ago. Unfortunately, it just doesn't work for me. First of all, there is no good color match for my pale cool-toned skin. Tender Rose is too dark and Soft Porcelain, the color of my sample, is too yellow. Second, even if the color did match, I am unable to get this product to blend into my skin. I tried a kabuki brush and a regular powder brush, but no matter how I apply it, it remains cakey and powdery and obvious on my skin. It makes the drier areas of my combination face look flakey, but after a few hours it utterly disappears from the oilier areas of my skin. I had such high hopes for this product, but I am disappointed. I'm just glad that I got a sample instead of buying the full-sized product without trying it first.
