update: December 20, 2012 i still love this stuff! its the best. I have tried so many different foundations and finally my mind has been blown! I love this foundation! I have finally found my holy grail! This is the only foundation that does not separate (I find all other foundations start looking dotty, pixely, separated….. its hard to articulate but its not attractive) This foundation does not transfer (I’m looking at you YSL Teint Resist long wear) all over my cell phone, it does not make my skin look dry and flakey, it doesn’t slide off my T zone or make me more oily, it never looks cakey and crusty, nor does it settle into any facial lines, groves, or pores, it doesn’t collect beside my nose and look ridiculous. I find it sets / adheres to my skin very well, and does not move around. The foundation is very light on the skin and feels like you are wearing almost nothing! The coverage is great, and I find no need to set with powder, although when it’s going to be a very long day / night I have set it with powder and still no cakeyness. I love how I can apply this foundation with my fingers and it looks great, I love how I can use my London Look BB dupe and it looks great, I love how I can be in a hurry and I know it will still look great! I think it may be perfection in a bottle! I also find it helps to keep my blush and bronzer on all day long. The foundation has not irritated my skin or broken me out. I do not find it overly difficult to remove. The shade range is great, and they have a color light enough for me, as I am very fair. The price is very reasonable and I would even pay more if I had too. I love this stuff. The other foundations I have kept because they kind of worked are: Nars - Sheer Glow – just sits on my skin and separates Makeup Forever – Matte Velvet Plus – looks cakey sometimes and separates Estee lauder - Double Wear - looks cakey, wears off strangely and separates Tart - Amazonian Clay Foundation – does not last and separates YSL - Teint Resist long wear – does not last, makes my skin look flakey, poor coverage (I can’t get rid of it because it cost to much money – same with Chanel Pro Lumiere – boy does that foundation suck with my skin!) The list of foundations, both low and high-end I have trashed, returned, and given away is staggering and I will not waste your time listing. Final Note: Everyone’s skin is different, but if you keep searching you will find a product that is right for you. Good Luck ladies :) *Edit* Second bottle now still loving it

The only dupe to the BB I have found (way better than the MAC or Sephora attempt). It works great, doubles in size when wet, and is very "bouncy". I finally understand what the buzz is all about! So far I have tried this with Matte Velvet Plus and it was wonderful, I am hoping that I will finally be able to make double wear work for me! I am so happy that I found it in Canada - London Drugs for $9.99. PS can someone add London Look as a brand???? It MA wont let me – thanks
I love it. I find it has better lasting power than NARS. It does not break me out or irritate my skin. The price is low and i do not mind the packaging, as that is why the price is so low. I love how you can build it up and not think. My only fear is it is becoming difficult to find.
By far the best product I have found to contour and bronze. I am a very fair skinned person NC 10 – 15 and I use this everyday with no problem. I use a MAC 109 and all is well, so I truly suggest a good old test run. Only down side is I now dislike NARS.
Such crap, really save your money! Its grey and burns.
A wonderful brush! If you struggle with the mac 222 or 224 this is your answer. Truly a treasure! I was finally able to create the looks i see on TV and you tube. Nothing i found is able to dupe this brush. Amazing
