Awesome product/bad packaging. Needs a tube. Hate digging in a pot to scrape product from out under my nails the rest of the day. other than that, product works exactly like a primer should.
never dreaming i would like this stuff, i bought it. And I do like it. And that is saying someone who has always worn heavy matte foundation. This is light and blendable and is just real user friendly. my skin is pretty good (i.m 47 so there is some fine wrinkles) but it does not settling in the creases. what i like the most is it is foundation for when your in a hurry. Its blendability is fab so you can just dot it with fingers and go. Maybu a light primer underneath would be better also. i use both on and off. You really have to have pretty good skin to start or use a good stand on its own concealor before you apply this foundation. i like this alot!

i have gone through like 6 of these.....by far the best ds brand/color i have ever used..... is great over lipstick or alone. A nice milky pink, really gives lips a nice full pout even where one doesn't exist naturally :)

i am in my mid forties , have combination skin and use a full ampule in the morning and every evening. I have been desperate to find something to slow down my aging process that has been picking up speed over the last few years and has excelerated over the past few months. now these little ampules are not miracle workers, I do however feel my skin tone is nicer and my skin has a nice flush to it, But i like this product most beacaue it feels good going on, Yes it greasy at first but your skin will DRINK it in (bought mine at Mrshalls for around $35) and if you can get a cup a coffee or watch a few minutes of tv, your skin will have completely absorbed every drop and you are ready for you sunscreen, makeup, or whatever you choose. i don't think my skin is any firmer .but it just feels nice applying it and i think my skin really likes it............
once again Benefit disappoints.......the concept is great but it is much, much to dry and these makes ease in application impossible. I much prefers Laura Gellers eye spackle. The color and coverage is great, but getting it on there is more trouble than its worth........
I received this as a swap and love the color but think this is the worst packagaing concept ever.......i feel that whatever this blush does for my look is overwhelmed by the hassle of the packaging. It is in a box and if you use a big blush brush like i do, its very awkward to get the brush evenly coated for good application. I wish Benefit would reconsider its packaging. I'm sure they are trying to be "green" but i'm sure they can come up with something eco friendly and easier to use

this is really an awesome product......and so simple! It adds an extra step to your mascara, but if you use primer then no problem. I wear contacts but found by applying this looking down onto a mirror, the fibers fall down instead of into your eye or onto your cheek. I purchased this at HSN, don't know of availability elsewhere. If you're into your mascara, this is a must try!
I'm amazed that I am first to review this polish. It is of course 1/2 of the Orgasm polish/lip gloss duo at Sephora ($30). Though I do like the lip gloss the polish is not flattering. It appears to be a very irredescent orange against my very pale complexion. If you were olive skinned or very tan I think it might be more flattering.

HAAAAAAAAAARRIBLE! I'm not even sure what this is supposed to be doing! I looked like a sparkly Kabuki dancer or something. Going back to QVC ASAP!
Purchased this today along with the matching gloss. The color is very peachy-pink, reminiscent of MAC Prrr........I like the color very much, but the stayng power is zilch. If constant reapplication doesn't bother you (and it doesn't me) this is a great lipstick. If you are looking for anything long wearing, you may want to take a pass on this one.
This is the craziest bronzer..........I received this via blind swap, didn't purchase. That's what I love about swaps. Basd on the appearance I wouldn't buy this stuff in a thousand years. When I first opened the compact I was mortified. But like Mohammed who climbed the mountain.....why? cuz it was there, I tried it. I am fair, can't translate that to "MacEase" but I think this looks great. It is very sheer. And as a previous reviewer said, it's more like a blush. Kinda "plummy". I am sure if yu were olve skinned it may not be so great. But for the fair........it's perfect.
Well I worked 12 hours and came home and looked in my 10x magnifying mirror. Didn't move or smudge. The big honkin' brush will take some getting used to......hope I don't poke my eye out. Was going to get DiorShow during Sephora's F&F, but now ........what's the point? Update: I continue to really like this mascara........some downsides though. Beacause this is very wet, it has an increased drying time which can be a problem. Sometimes I have to go back and clean up under my eyes where it has "speckled. " I also finedI do need to go over it with a dry "spoolie" to separate my lashes. However I can't rave enough about the staying power. I like the "no smudge" aspect especially in the humid climate that I call home.
