UGH. Can we say clogged pores? Sure it covers, but then halfway through the day it turned my skin into an oil slick!! I have never had that problem before using this. And the breakouts on my chin were unbelievable! I guess it really depends on your skin type with this, but it did not work out for me!

THIS stuff is AMAZING!! I'm in love! I have always had dark circles under my eyes and have been on a hunt for YEARS looking for something to use, but nothing ever seemed to really get the job done... THEN I found this!!!!!! I cannot sing it's praises enough. If you have dark circles, this is a MUST! Just go into the store and test it out for yourself. You will see a difference instantly. Since I started using this, I've been getting compliments and people have been asking me if there's something different. I'd never tell them that it's the fact that my dark circles are hiding!! TRY IT!!

I have never broken out because of this product and I have broken out from tons of different ones. This is one of those things you can put on very quickly and poof out the door you go! Never clogs my pores and stays on all day. I love the packaging as well. I received this in a gift set and wound up running out to get the full size! I have a very light shade and a little darker shade to mix and adjust the color as my tan comes and goes. Great for evening out skin and toning down the freckles!
LOVE this stuff! My skin feels very smooth and normal when I use this. I've experienced little to no skin flaking and dry skin patches now and my makeup goes on much smoother. I use this every day after I wash my face down with my Clarisonic(if I don't use it right after, I don't get the tingling sensation. I like to feel the tingle to know that it's working. hehe) Never feels uncomfortable to me, BUT I would definitely try and steer clear of it if you have sensitive skin though!!

They should really package this differently... I think we all know that! Does this make the eyeshadow stay on? Yes. Does it look like it was caked on or crackly on my eyes? Yes. It makes it more difficult to blend the eyeshadows on my eyes and drys out my eyelids.
I think the hype is mostly in the name of this blush... not the actual product. It has way too much glitter/shimmer to look at all natural and I found that the shimmer would wind up down my cheek or on my nose, etc. NARS has some great blushes... I just don't think this is one of them.

This brush is SO soft and works amazingly well. I just wish the handle was a bit longer!! I use it for foundation along with also using it for blushes for more concentrated color application. Works great, but is a little pricey! Kind of reminds me of a MAC 239 on some major steroids!!
