Wish this was easier to get, love love love this product, stays on the lips for ages, and moisturizes wonderfully, scared to finish my pot as I can't get this anywhere at the moment. Pot is very cute too :-)
Love the colour, it really suits my skin tone, however I found the formula to be very drying which made it hard to keep it looking good for any length of time and I found myself having to completely remove before reapplying. However it has good staying power with very little transfer. Very disappointed that my local mac counter did not have a good match in its lip liner range and I had to go elsewhere. However I probably will not purchase this again anyway, its just too much maintenance for a night out.
This is a good colour match for my fair skin tone, has nice coverage, minimizes the look of my pores without being too heavy, and has good staying power. I like the way my skin feels when I use it regularly, its nice and moisturizing and it appears to keep my spotty chin under control. I like the packaging, it has never leaked by accident and I am forever throwing it into bags and purses, it keeps the air out keeping it nice and hygienic which is good because this product really lasts. I think you would really need to cram it in somewhere to set off the pump and even then it would need to keep pumping to cause a huge mess and as I have said that has never happened even once. Only issue with packaging is that it is impossible to tell how much is left as you cant see inside so you could easily get caught out one morning with an empty bottle.

Got this after reading all the rave reviews, but its not good for me. I find it really hard to blend onto my skin no matter which primer I use and it is very drying. I have tried various tools from brushes to sponges and fingers but nothing makes this look good on my skin, and even though the colour matches well, it still makes my skin look really washed out after a couple of hours and it shows up dry patches I never even knew I had. Will not be repurchasing. Love the HD powder though!!

After seeing reviews for this online, and also falling for the supercute packaging I decided to try this out, and was not disappointed. I have combination skin and this cream is perfect, moisturizing well without being too heavy and I find it to be a good base for foundation on my light make-up days. My only complaint is that although the packaging is supercute,(I keep my empty ones and put earrings in them) you do have to stick your fingers in the product which is kinda unhygienic, so make sure fingers are super clean. Not a lot of product but good quality and a little seems to go a long way, a product I currently can't live without.
I got this product two summers ago in Tokyo in a small sample size free when I purchased some sana pore putty and was immediately hooked. As stated by the previous reviewer, it is only suitable for light complexions, I have very pale scottish skin, and this suits me perfectly, and gives me an almost flawless look with good staying power. I use it over foundation and BB creams and it really does do a good job of minimizing the look of my pores without drying as I often struggle to find a face powder that does not dry my already dry skin. I like the powder puff it comes with it applies the product well for me and I just put mine into the washing machine in a small delicates bag to keep it hygienic. Luckily it is easily available online as back in scotland it is impossible to get, and I have unable to find a comparable product here so I stock up regularly, LOVE IT!
