I have been using this for a while now and am blown away at the way it makes my skin look: smooth, glowy, natural and fresh. It lasts all day too. I was a foundation junkie, always looking for something better but now I've found it! I gave the packaging only 3 stars though because they make you hand over another $7 for the pump, which is silly. I also gave the price a 2 because if you wait for the Clinique bonus times, it is totally worth the price of the foundation.
Best concealer EVER. Disappears into skin. Lasts all day.

excellent product. Comparable to the expensive luxury brands. Will buy again.
I read all the negative reviews here and thought I'd put in my 2 cents. I LOVE this foundation. I get a healthy glow, a fresh-faced look and it lasts ALL day (when you wear a primer). I'm very happy with it and will certainly buy the full-size products when I run out of the trial ones. I paid $40 (CAD) for the kit and received a gift with purchase cosmetics bag that contained another chisel brush and trial-sized 4-in-1 fdn powder. Good price and good quality!
I have tried a different brand of mineral powder foundation and was unimpressed by the results. This time around, I decided to try Purminerals. Wow. What a difference. It lasts all day and looks as fresh as it does when first applied. No caking, no flakiness, just smooth, glowy skin!

This works very very well for my chin-length fine hair. It doesn't weigh it down and makes it a bit "stiffer" so it holds the style better. Will certainly buy again and I highly doubt I will go back to my mousses and gels!

This model is so much better than my old Braun 2370 (yellow, circa 2004). My only "complaint" would be the cheap pouch they give you, which is nothing more than a nylon drawstring bag. Pitiful. However, the epilator is of excellent quality and the light is helpful. I opted for this corded model because several people told me that the rechargeable battery dies more quickly. I highly recommend this!
I have tried MANY self-tanners: Lancome, Clarins, and other high-end brands. This one is as good, if not better, than any of those and it is less expensive. The colour on my very fair skin is natural and "caramel". I applied sparingly the 1st time (not knowing what to expect) and reapplied sparingly again the next day. I look like I spent the day outdoors - healthy and glowy! I will definitely stick with this brand and recommend it to all my fellow palefaces!
A good daytime red. Works very well with my NW20 skintone. Will repurchase!

The smell!!!!!! Horrible. Overpowering. Nauseating. UGH. The compact was SO hard to open and once I finally GOT it open, the fumes wafted out... I threw it out. Back to MAC.

Great foundation! It goes on smoothly and though it is marketed as "matte", it is quite a natural finish. Great coverage and staying power. I would call this HG material. The only downside is the price. At $41, it isn't cheap but it performs so well, I will cut back elsewhere.
best powder out there. great coverage without looking "cakey" and hides redness perfectly.
I'm not sure why there are so many negative reviews. This works great for my FINE FINE FINE hair and gives me great volume. I've had no problem with breakouts or anything and I'd buy it again!
Very good mascara (but pricey so I took off one lippie). I wear contacts and my mascara usually runs down my face by the end of the day. Not this one. I would repurchase.
Really like this. It is light, moisturizing and very good under makeup. I will buy again.
