[2/3/13] Right now, I like this stuff. I bought the travel size package, a 1 oz. tube. I think buying the travel size one is better than buying the full size one, 1.5 oz. The travel size one was $20 at 1 oz. versus the full size bottle which is $43 at only 1.5 oz. Do the math, and you see that it's cheaper to buy two of the travel size bottles and getting 2 oz. of product for $40 than buying one bottle of the full size bottle and getting only 1.5 oz for $43. The weird pricing aside, I'll tell you the pro's and con's: PRO's + Smooth - Application is very easy. I just use my fingers, and boom, I'm done. + Dewy - It's not super shiny, which I love, and gives you a healthy dew. + Odorless - To me, it doesn't smell like anything. My sense of smell isn't the best, though, so I'm not really reliable in the smell category. + Hygienic Packaging - Love that it squeezes out of the tube and isn't and open bottle, or something, where you have to pour some out. + No Breakouts! - This is a biiiig plus for me, an acne-prone sixteen year old. Every other product I've tried, whether it's M.A.C., Revlon, Benefit, and Neutrogena, makes me breakout. CON's - Almost No Coverage - I don't expect medium coverage from a tinted moisturizer, but this almost does nothing to even out my skin tone, which is what a tinted moisturizer should do. - Lasting Power is Short - This product only lasts a few hours, and I'm a girl who never touches her face. I'll update this in about a week or so.
First off, I really wanted this product to work for me. ): I loved this product so much! It had good coverage and didn't feel too heavy (of course you could feel that you were wearing makeup)! The ONLY REASON I threw it away was because it broke me out! I bought the oil-free for combination to oily skin, and after a day of wear, I found little bumps all over my face. Urgh, I was so mad because I loved the product so much. Because of the breaking out, I'm only giving this four lippies, but if it didn't break me out, I would give it five and continue to wear this stuff forever.
