I really like this. as a cool toned gal, it can be tricky to get bronzy without looking muddy. this product acheives this for me! i simply swipe my brush and put this on my cheeks, upper forehead and chin. Love it. Best of all, it hasnt caused any breakouts...

First of all,,,i love the finish of this powder..omg..its just so finely milled, honestly, you can't even tell I have powder on. The coverage is great too! I used to have severe acne which has cleared up well, and I have little to no hyperpigmentation. Perhaps anybody who has more redmarks should use some conealor with this powder. I think its great for mild coverage as well as it does a great job evening out my skintone. it does a fair job in terms of pores, mine are huge though!! the only problem i have, is the oil blottin properties. this powder isnt anywhere near as good as the mac blot powder (which i had to stop using due to a really bad breakout :() but i suspect that for the fall, this powder will be a life saver!!! this powder's just no match for my freakishly oily skin :( however i will DEF purchase again, it's a gem. o and i dont think it makes me breakout either, totally rare for my very acne prone skin!! Cheers for dream matte pressed powder!!!!
Liquid -Neutrogena - Skin Clearing Oil-Free Makeup

yuck..im biased because i hate neutrogena! but i tried this foundation and its just too streaky and lasts about an hour...sucky
i believe this was my first ever foundation...ahh memories...it wasn't bad..the consistency was creamy but still a lil liquidy and it didnt break me out...the coverage was nice too..but it didnt last long enough for me...i dont think they sell this anymore..
i HEART oxy 5 bp lotion...it keeps my skin consistently clear and as long as i exfoliate regularly it wont leave me flakey! i only use it on my chin area because this is my problem area....have been loyal to this lotion for months now because it works!
i am really impressed with this product...the coverage is lovely and oh so natural...since its a powder foundation i thought it would look powdery..nope!! of course i use my philosophy primer under this..and apply this foundation with a damp sponge..it works wonders and leaves my super oily skin looking wonderfully natural...i like deweyness not total matteness..and this foundation accomplishes that for me...it is also a great concealor!!! i only have to use my concealor for very red zits..etc... i would say this fd has 3 diff levels of coverage..light, medium and medium heavy...i luv that versatility!! will def be buying again!

i hate to be the downer here..i really wanted to like this but i guess my incredibly skin soaked it right up!! yuuucckk..streaky! but i must say the coverage is gorgeous!!! so natural and dewy...right before my skin sux it up of course... i think this fd is perfect for people with normal skin..

ayyyyy i really wanted to like this product....but *sigh* alas it was no good for me...the color was a bit off...and the makeup itself felt a bit heavy on my skin...the coverage was lovely however...it has similar coverage to clinique's stay matte pressed powder..which i luuuv! the CG powder however made my face itch??? weird... a plus is that it didnt oxidize.....but then again it didnt last long either...i will be returning it..if riteaid lets me!!

i luv this powder..tru it doesnt last as long as i would like in terms of oil control but it doesnt break me out and is super gentle..plus the shade stay neutral is great on my skin tone!! it also gives great coverage....

when i first started using this it was good...i liked that it indeed gave a matte finish..however it stings badly since i use acne medications..and after awhile t makes my face bit greasy...will not be repurchasing..
i was a little skeptical about this product because it has a bit of salycilic acid in it..which my face never did well with...surprisingly its great!!! it tightens pores, helps with oil control (im ridiculously oily) and best of all get rid of the flakies!! even though my oil is out of control..since i use acne medication my skin gets flaky..this gets rid of that... fair warning: the first couple of times i used this my face felt on fire...however after like 3-4 times ur face tolerates it..go figure...
i dont know wat it is..but i luuuuv the jane blush shades...they are beautiful..this one gave me a lovely glow...and looked lovely on me.....it really does give u a nice glow...and the lasting power is unbelievable!!! and i can vouch for this..my skin is unbelievably oily!! it gives me the finishing touch....all i need is my face powder, this blush, loose powder and lip gloss...luv it!

i like this...i like that its no color really is no color..it doesnt disturb my powder or blush....and it does control the oilies...my skin is exceptionally oily...and i would say that this powder does a pretty good job of keeping the oilies at bay till at least the afternoon...oh and it does not break me out!!
while buying Jane's amazing and beautiful blushes i saw this concealor.the fact that its oil free caught my eye...and i thought wat the heck...so in lew of its great price and no frills packaging..its a great concealor..it lasts all day on my skin...and the color match is pretty good....i mean sure there are bettter concealors out there..but for the price u just cant beat it!!! when i use this however...less is more..and i use a brush to blend..presto!! no more zit...
