I like the coverage of this, and that it comes with the compact, unlike other Stila powders, but I must say that the color (1-light) is just wrong for me. Despite the fact that it is "sheer" coverage, I find that it deposits enough color to give my face a funny cast, maybe too yellow...wich is weird because I usually find powders to be too pink for my very pale skin with yellow undertones. Plus, I think it broke me out after about a week! Will not re purchase, still love you though Stila!
LIP BALM MECCA for a lip balm addict. Have used the stuff as long as I can remember and will keep using. However, important to note that it is great for maintenance, but when my lips are all peeled and chappy in a bad way, I reach for DCT instead, it heals more quickly....

So, addicted as I am to anything that offers to shrink my pores, I laid out 21 bucks for this stuff at Sephora. Oops! Although I am surprised to hear the strong reactions of others about this product, I have to agree that it SMELLS. It did mattify my slightly oily skin, and temporarily shrunk my pores a little- but it's not really worth the nasty process of rolling the stuff off. My suggestion, spend $5 for a queen helene mud mask and a tube of clean and clear...

I have combination skin with HUGE pores and occasional breakouts, always looking for something that will smooth my skin, shrink my pores and not cause breakouts. This does all three, I have been using it for about six months with the total effects treament stuff, and a few weeks ago, my 24 year old brother asked what Ive been doing cause my skin looks so great!! I will keep buying and using this stuff...wonderful!! EDIT: Still use, still love...
