I like it alot :) Nice formula, not too sticky. Gives such a nice shine and colour, THAT LASTS. I put this on at 9am, and went to a public bathroom 2 and a half hours later and my lips still looked shiny somehow. You really can't go too wrong with lip gloss (aside from colour), but this is def a new fave, lasts+colour+shine.

Only just tried this product on, wasn't impressed. Very "hard" powder, not easy to get enough out to actually apply, kind of felt like i had to dig to get any at all. Also the second I touched my face it rubbed off noticeably, leaving a line. Oh well..
I got this product due to never getting enough sleep, so it sounded SO appealing. I've used it a few times, and it does make you look more awake and glowy. It gives a very sheer, dewy sort of coverage. So if you like matte finishs I'd use a powder over the top. The bad? It says it gets rid of dark circles - uh no, it lightened them, but they were no where near hidden. Also its a very watery formula and as I said before very sheer, so if you have any major skin problems (acne, scarring, etc) it may not be enough coverage for you. Oh and the pump bottle may annoy some people. Overall I like it as an everyday off-to-the-shops sort of foundation, light natural coverage with a very nice feel :)

I only recently bought this product. Iv tried sheer cover, BE, maybelline, revlon, and soo many other mineral make ups, and this is THE best. First off, okay so the packaging isn't great and yes there have been better brushs, but what matters is how the product works. What good is a amazing, fancy container with a crap product inside?! So the coverage is what I call "buildable" - yeah it can be light, sheer coverage, but you can build it to suit what you want. The powder is very silky and soft on the skin. I have red patches, dark circles and redness round the nose area, it totally got rid of the redness and lightened my circles so much I didn't know if I really needed concealer (I still like to use a little, so paranoid about looking tired and eugh!) It also lasts all day on me, I put it on at 8am and from there i go shopping, ride + feed my horse, work, exercise and I know at the end of the day my makeup looks fresh. Big plus! It gives you such an airbrushed look, like your skin is all even, one tone and perfect with a nice heathly "awake" glow :) Oh and unlike other mineral makeups I've used it doesn't give that orange tinge. Bad things? Yes the packaging isn't A-grade, but thats about it. I like how my skin looks, I feel confident and am not changing foundations any time soon :)
