Instead of buying this product outright I went to the dreaded makeup counter to get a color match. The woman that worked with me showed me not only the best foundation for my skin type, but matched my olive tone perfectly. I would recommend this instead of just buying a color you think may work, they will put swatches on your face and you can see why the colors don't match. I didn't find this too heavy, being that I was at the prescriptives counter and that makeup made me feel like i was wearing a wedding cake on my face. So this was a relief. Also, remember that the spf in any product fades during the day. Although a product may say that it shields against UVA as well as UVB, It does not guarantee protection against all UVA wavelengths. Most broad-spectrum sunscreens and sunblocks with an SPF of 15 or higher do a good job against UVB and short UVA rays; if they also contain avobenzone, zinc oxide, or titanium dioxide, they should be effective against the entire UVA spectrum.
I have to agree with another user who said that they had the best hair days after using this! I hated spending the money on this system, but i must admit that it was the best thing i did for my hair. I don't have nearly as many frizzies and its softer than it ever has been.
I have tried this product for just under a year and the range of my skin reactions go from irritated to nothing with this. I still kept using it hoping it would lighten the scars as it advertised. I used it twice a day faithfully even though my skin sometimes turned red when i applied it to an area. Alas I had no results, at least it was no faster than just letting the scars peel/fade on their own.
Not only have I tried this product for months, It costs a fortune, and hasn't done a thing for me. I use this day and night, yet any spots are just as dark as they were.

I found this product way better than the Urban Decay eyeshadow primer. This actually kept my eyes looking fierce even after running out into the rain and working all day. I have tried the UD primer after I started using this one, and I noticed that the UD primer doesn't hold the color as well (it eventually flakes off during the day), while the Too Faced primer kept my eye shadow on until I took it off! The word needs to be spread about this product, it is easily superior to the UD version!

Although this product is good, it is not nearly as good as the eyeshadow primer by Too Faced. I found that the Urban Decay primer still allowed the eyeshadow to fade during the day, and you have to break open the tube to get all of the product out.
