I'm Asian NC 25-35 so I thought the yellow based Nude would be perfect for me. The coverage went on medium and was pretty blendable. The color was a bit off on my skin - too dark and went on so yellow that it had a green tint to it. Very weird. It also made my t-zone shiny (I have oily skin).
I've been using this about 2-3 times each week for the last 3 weeks. I have clogged pores on my cheeks and nose that I was hopping this would help with. I melt 4 aspirins with water and spread it on my face, wait 10 minutes and then wash off. I've noticed no difference in my skin. All clogged pores are still there.
Doesn't seem to decrease frizz or make my hair smoother but I was blown away at how fast it dried my hair. My hair was dried in 2-3 minutes flat! I have thin hair and was afraid this might make my hair flat but it didn't. It never felt like it was so hot for my scalp.
While this is perfectly fine to use on the body, it is way too thick for the face if you have oily skin like mines. Goes on thick but does absorb nicely after a few minutes. Makes my skin oily throughout the day. At least it doesn't sting my eyes. Gives my face this nice glow. Edited 9/26/06: it stings my eyes! will use for body only.

I love this product! Wonderfully natural and sheer-looking but still offers some coverage for flaws. I don't think it lasts as long as it claims but it's still much more wear-proof than other foundations out there. Love the creamy texture. The bottle is also wonderful, one pump is just the right amount to use each time.
Even though I have combo oily skin, this made my face dry and flakey. I also suspect this caused my small breakouts as well! Horrible product!

I really can't say I see a difference after using this. Nice spray bottle and easy to use but left my hair just as frizzy as normal.

Although this did helped my frizziness, it weighed my fine hair down. I would only recommend it if you have heavy, thick frizzy hair. No stickiness and had a nice clean scent.
I have this in Desert Bloom and I love the color! Perfect nude pink on my NC 25-35 skintone. I also don't mind the smell- odd watermelon/cucumberish. However, despite it's name, it dries out my lips worst than other lipsticks. Staying power is also pretty low for a lipstick. I'll probably be searching for a similar color in another lipstick brand.
Very nice brush. Never shed or streaked. Nice and wide to cover a lot of surface fast. Feels so soft against my skin. Also works nicely as a concealor brush. The long handle makes is perfectly comfortable to use. The only bad thing is the price. But if it lasts forever then it's worth it.
Not very impressed with this product. I got it after reading all the wonderful reviews here. I'm NC 25-35 and I picked veil- doesn't match my skin exactly but it's so light that no one notices. This product is way too light. It's like I'm using NOTHING. Don't get me wrong, I love light foundations and the last thing I want is to look like I have a ton of stuff on. I applied this on 1/2 of my face and compared it to the other 1/2. There was virtually no difference. Save you money and skip this.
I'm really likeing this. Gives me loooooong and glossy lashes with lots of volume. No smudges even though I have oily skin and everything seems to smudge on me. The only bad thing is that it seems to clump more than others but it's nothing an eyelash comb can't fix. Wonderful product!
Nothing too special. Can't really tell if it really extended the life of my highlights. Feels really slippery and hard to wash out. Average product.
Nothing too special. Very gentle shampoo but my color treated fine hair was not more moisturized after using this. My hair is still as frizzy as before even after 6 months of use.
Very nice light moisturizer perfect for my oily skin. Doesn't make me whiter but does make my face brighter and more glowy. Did break me out a little bit in the beginning but that went away after 2 weeks.
