Just perfect. Zero negatives. C3 is a dead on match for my winter color. I have NEVER had an exact match. I'm very yellow and always end up looking ruddy, grey, ashy, etc. I don't like sunscreen for that reason either. As I apply this, my skin just looks magically better. Not like there's color being applied ON it. It transforms my actual skin into looking good. I use a pink sponge that looks like a slightly larger, slightly firmer beauty blender. I dip it in the foundation, spread a quick film all over, and then "push" it in all over with the top of sponge. I was covering with powder bc it is very dewy, but I think I've come to realize that powder actually makes me oilier late in the day. Plus it just looks nice and glowy as is and I just love love love it!

I'm very yellow and have a problem with foundation looking pink. This one is pretty great. Can have an ashy tint to it, but I think that's the sunscreen. It's not enough to be an issue. I use it daily and really like it. Wanted to try some others bc, well you know how that goes, but I'm sticking to this.
Amazing color! I literally haven't bought another lipstick since i got this. Centerfold is the perfect name as it's very much a "bombshell" look. I am extremely yellow toned and on the fair side of medium, and would NEVER think something with a lavendary hue would look good, but it works so so well for me. And it's only slightly purply anyway, more nude. It goes on opaque (covers lip color), creamy, feels good on, and lasts (as well as any lipstick actually can). Not sure how this will look with a tan though.

This is my first review. I keep seeing the raves for this but I just had to add my dissenting opinion. I don't know what in the world to do with this brush. I have had it for quite a while, and when I first bought it I thought it was so amazingly soft and wonderful. But even though the bristles are soft in themselves, they are so short and compact, and with the completely flat top, end up feeling stiff and hard. Then buffing with this makes me red. And forget if I'm having even the hint of a dry day, then I get flakies everywhere (never, ever with ANY other brush). I have tried and tried to use this somehow but it's irritating to my skin. And it doesn't make anything look exceptionally good either. I did see one sample at target the other day that was super splayed out and fluffy (probably from being touched like crazy) and I couldn't help but think "how can I get mine like that..." Edit: I found out an actual good use for this is with very liquidy foundation. MUFE F&B with a moistened brush does a good job. Anything at all creamy, thick, or a powder just will not work for me at all!
