I have tried a lot of expensive foundations and this is by far the best. It looks like real skin. It lasts. It covers, but can be worn sheer. It also doesn't break me out. My color is Primma Donna and I'm a NC20. It does take a little bit to find the right color (I would order one of those 5 pan palletes, I think they are only twenty dollars at camera ready cosmetics.com) and it does take a few tries to learn how you prefer to use it but in the end it's so worth it. I have two toddlers and I'm usually exhausted and look pretty bad in the morning. I'm also pressed for time, to say the least, and this is the perfect thing for me.
These are the best blushes. They stand up to Nars, Bobbi Brown and Mac. Coral Spice is exactly the same as Nars Orgasm. It is almost more pigmented. Pink and Rose give me that perfect pink flush. I think Rose is my favorite and it gets little hype. Pink Velvet is a bit too cool for my taste but it's a brilliant color. Peach was a bit of a downer for me. It's more of a natural shade and less like that new Benefit one I was hoping for. But it will still be good for natural days. Got mine from Camera Ready Cosmetics.com

I just got this yesterday and was dying to try them. First of all, I put this on my lips and it made them look horribly dry with flakes. It's mid-July here and the weather is hot and humid. Normally I don't have a problem with dry lips, even in the Midwest winters, but this stuff is more drying than any lip product I've ever used. So I exfoliated, and put come Cetaphil cream on the outside of my lips and that helped get them into shape, but the product didn't last long. Perhaps I didn't use enough. Anyways I put this on clean lips, used a bit more product, and it has lasted a bit longer but over all I'm not impressed. It sucks all the moisture from your lips and that's not attractive. There's a difference between a matte lipstick and get that poor woman some chapstick. I'm going to have to put something over the top to make this work, which will make it no different than any standard lipstick and won't have to deal with all this exfoliating and using lip balm in the middle of July. The color is okay. It's like a MLBB with a pink to it.
