I love BB products. I never try on to match because golden is always dead on but this was a lil bronzy, thick and transferred like crazy. I stippled a very thin layer and you could still tell I had on MU however it does provide great coverage without concealer. I returned it after two uses. I read other reviews and for the price I didn't feel I should hit pan quickly for a product that I don't like much. I'm going to stick to powder foundation for my oily skin.
One of my spring/summer favorites. I am on my second bottle. Last really long and I love that the scent is recognizable so you stand out. Soft and subtle. I would buy again for sure.
Great for stippling & buffing concealer. Concealor doesn't look cakey and it last all day. The bristles are soft but stiff. Love this brush!
Perfect for the office. No smudge and last a really long time.
Worked wonders at first. Kept my makeup on longer and kept the oilies at bay. But man did it my oily skin out something awful. My skin peeled and was left ashy. I think it would be great for normal skin. Won't pay again.

Smell of product doesn't seem good for skin. Did nothing for acne and doesn't clean face well. Would NOT buy again and wouldn't use it if I got it for free!
Color is nice. Long wearing maybe. It became very dry on my lips over time. Even with lip balm underneath it still gets dry. I won't buy again.

Great smell. Not too greasy. Very light. Softens hair and seals moisture for days. My 4a/b natural hair loves this product wet or dry. Less breakage. Soothes my scalp. HG hair oil for sure!

My hair is in its natural state 4a/b. Great smell. Detangles a little. Doesn't soften hair. Wonderful sheen once dry. Less breakage with useage. I don't think its worth buying again.

I brought this months ago and never used it because I didn't know how...man what took me so long! I have oily shiny greasy skin (t-zone) and I apply this with a blending brush (I would like to use a better brush) to my nose, cheeks, under eyes and eye lids...I am oil-free for HOURS. Sets make-up well too. I use it over liquid and powder foundation. There is no white powdery cakey look on my NC45 complexion. This MAC product is the truth.org
Tried a sample 3.4 last night went back to get it this morning for my best friends wedding. I applied it at 1:30 pm and it is now minutes to 12 am and I still look good. I cried and danced hard, stood in the Miami heat and this foundation did not move. It did not melt or go into any lines or pores & yes I have an oily t-zone. The color could not be more perfect than my mother giving birth to me. Feather light on my face with no transfer, no oil, no shine, no blot and non-drying. I am dead tired but I had to write this review before going to bed. This is my HG! Good by M.A.C. Bobbi Brown and Laura Mercier Smashbox is here to stay! Oh let me add...I think it is a sheer to light coverage...it takes time to build. Bonus is it is paraben free!
OMG! This is my HG for sure! I saw a pepper mint patty complexion chic with it on and I asked what brand was it, when she said its MAC and we have it...I needed it for my life. I am NC 45 and it is to die for. I had my nail tech add a french tip on my toes using this color...even more beautiful! Two coats and I was good to go. I must say this color is $15 well spent. Edit: 3 days later...I went bowling and still no chips! However the polish has lost some shine, it could be the top coat.
When I want to smell good from one shower to the next...this is the fragrance I turn too! Smells great! Would buy again for sure!
I got a sample from Sephora and I am really thinking the full size may be worth the $48. I used it as a sealant on my natural hair and it sealed in moisture and gave my hair great sheen! But it worked even better on my skin which I think if I am going to buy it again, it would be used on my skin only. This oil gave my skin a great glow and left my skin feeling baby soft without any breakouts. My skin absorbed it well and did not leave my face looking like an oil slick.
Turned my face into an oil slick and made me break out!
