Lovely light foundation which gives sheer to medium foundation. At first it can look a bit shiny but after about half an hour when it has dried in it looks completely natural. Set with a small amount of Laura Mercier mineral powder I find this ideal for daytime wear. I have got compliments on how well my skin looks. My only issue is that I wish that there were more shade options. L1 is slightly too dark and F3 is too pinkish. The packaging is great and allows yout to see exactly how much is left and you are not stuck struggling to get the last bit of makeup from the bottle as with other brands.
I have been using this for over a year and really love it. I find it too heavy for everyday wear but for nights out and special occasions it makes the skin look really flawless but doesn't cake unlike other fuller coverage foundations. I apply this with my fingers as I find it is the best way. I also use this on days where I may have a breakout on certain areas of my face and apply LM mineral foundation over it. Even if you don't like a fuller coverage, if you just use a very small bit of this and blend it into the face, its great to even out skin tone. A little goes a long way and the tube has lasted me for nearly a year. However, if my skins a bit on the dry side it can look a bit obvious on the skin and also the foundation and the water formula can tend to seperate after time. Overall I will definetely repurchase and I wouldn't be without it for a night out.
Really happy with this blush. It gives a beautiful, natural, radiant flush to the cheek and if applied properly it doesn't look at all obvious on the skin. will repurchase without a doubt. I am NC25, blonde hair, green eyes and find this colour to be perfect for everyday wear! :)
Like others, I bought this brush to use with the mineral foundation as the SA said it was 'essential' for applying it. Wish I hadn't bothered. The hairs keep shedding all over my face and it feels very harsh against the skin, The more I wash it the worse it seems to get. Such a rip off for what it is.
