Pro: Smells nice Elegant packing Doesn't break out Texture is not too thick Con: Expensive for drugstore Too hydrating This would probably be good for people who have more normal to dry skin but it doesn't work well for me. I have oily skin and I've been trying to find a good night cream that won't leave an oil slick on my face in the morning, and this is not it. It smells nice, goes on smooth and it's not super thick, but it feels really hydrating (and it does sting a bit) so it would probably be good in the winter. As far as the anti wrinkle part of it, I don't have any yet so I can't be a good judge. I have used it on my boyfriend (lol) who has some deep forehead wrinkles and normal skin and it seemed to work well on him.

Pros: Water based Doesn't break out Good packaging Blendable and buildable Light coverage Cons: Not matte! So I have combo skin (leaning more towards oily) and this foundation was one of the few that didn't break me out. The coverage is pretty light, which is more or less what I need (I like the more natural look) but if I need more coverage, I just use more. The big downside is that it leaves me oily in a few hrs... but then again, pretty much anything on my face does so it's no surprise to me. For the price and the fact that it doesn't break me out at all, I'd totally buy it again, but I'm gonna keep an eye out for something that keeps my face matte
This is a review for the purple box. I have decently oily skin (mostly in my T zone) and since it said oil free on the back, I figured I might be ok... I woke up with basically an oil slick on my face. I used it for about a week and it's just way too hydrating. It feels non greasy but it causes my face to produce so much oil! It smells great and would probably be great for someone with drier skin, but defiantly not for me. Right now I'm just using it on my neck and hands so I would at least get something out of it lol

So I have fairish medium asian skin and even though the color is pretty sheer and you have to put a lot on, it shows up decent in the sun. It looks pinkish nude on me. I usually use this on top of more pigmented blush to soften it out and make it look more natural. It works really well that way. The only reason why I think it's so so is because I've had this thing for like 6 months and the first couple months, it was easy to get on the brush but now it's hardened and you have to really press in there to get it out. I think this got discontinued and was replaced by the FitMe because the packaging is way too similar. Either way, I probably won't be buying this again.
