This didn't work out for me. I can't get a color match and the consistency is strange - hard for me to pick up on my brush. Not enough coverage. Expensive for what you get. Will not repurchase.

Very surprised with the quality of this product. I am very pleased with the pigmentation and it wore on my first try for at least 9 hours without creasing or much oxidizing over a primer. Would repurchase this. I especially like the brown/green duochrome in the lower right hand corner of this palette.
Just piggybacking on the previous review, for an update. This is a beautiful color which gives a nice flush but is a little more muted for people who don't feel comfortable with brighter reds on the cheeks. I find myself reaching for this during the fall when Soleil Red or Flame red seem too bright. As usual, great packaging, secure and does not show fingerprints, very pigmented, very high quality for the price, although it has just gone up in price still worth it. I will repurchase if and when I ever hit pan. I have so many Ben Nye blushes to get through.

I liked this product to replenish my sun protection over a full face of makeup, but they have since re-formulated and the product no longer has spf. IT now has no use for me, so I will not repuchase.
I wish I could have made a go of this, but I could not. It makes such a cast on my skin that it is unwearable as is. Maybe if there were a lower SPF, I might be able to use it easier. I am medium-dark, African American and I had to mix dark mineral makeup with this just to make me not look like a ghost.I have this problem with a couple of so-called colorless sunscreens. Physicians Formula was a fail as well on this front.The only powdered sunscreen I have been able to use with success is by Colorescience, which makes one in in my skin tone AND the clear one is actually clear.

Shed like crazy, not as dense as I had hoped. Not a repurchase.
This product works wonderfully on my dry, color-treated hair. I do as I was advised by practitioners of ayurveda and oil my hair and scalp prior to application and then apply the paste containing the amla powder to my hair and scalp, let it sit, then rinse and proceed with the rest of my routine. It leaves me with strong, conditioned hair with a nice sheen. I swear it keeps my hair color from oxidizing. I rarely have to re-color my whole head. I just do the roots and there is no line of demarcation. I take off one lippie only because it can get messy sometimes.
