I got this in light brown. My hair was already brown and my roots are jet black. The color came out so dark--almost black on me. It doesn't come out like mousse, it looks more like foam you see on top of a cappuchino. I wouldn't repurchase and wouldn't recommend to anyone.
Foundations -Revlon - Custom Creations Foundation [DISCONTINUED]

This was the first drug store foundation I have purchased..and I was impressed! I have an olive complexion with yellow undertone. The other foundations didn't seem like they could perfectly match my skin AND avoid making me look like I am wearing a mask. This one blends perfectly into my skin and makes it look flawless. I applied face lotion first (Neutrogena FACE SPF 90), and followed it with Ulta primer. I used a sponge to apply the foundation (I turn the dial to #3). The great thing about this foundation is that as winter comes and you become naturally a little more pale, you can adjust. Once summer comes, you can make the foundation darker again. You save more money this way and you get it all in one product. I also have very oily skin and this felt weightless and comes in a nice matte finish. Looks very natural!

Ladies, the other reviews were right: this eye shadow creases very quickly, and the color doesn't have heavy pigmentation. The colors look very pretty in the package and you think they'll have some kind of shimmer. But once on they looked almost matte on my eyelids. I was very disappointed and I promptly returned mine.

I hated it. I have an olive skin complexion and the white didn't show up on me at all after constant dabbing, and rubbing. I even tried to dip the brush in a little water to see if this would intensify the colors. It didn't. It only made it look nasty and globby. The lime green doesn't look too bad but again, it shows up very sheerly. The pink shows up best out of all the colors. Unfortunately, they dont' stay on (they rubbed off extremely easily and after 5 minutes you couldn't see them at all). I will definitely be returning. This was certainly a waste.
This was my first concealer from Ulta and I loved it. I was worried that it might cake up, especially under my eyes, but it didn't! It looks very natural and blends right into your skin. It made my foundation look even better when it was layered on top. I would highly recommend this to anyone reading :)
Ladies, this product truly deserves the great ratings it has received. I just bought mine from CVS and was a bit worried because I thought it would feel awkward and drying. Not so! I bought Sparkling Sherry (which is perfect because my name is Sherry! lol). I was tempted to put on a lot of the color but I remembered that most people here stated it is best to put on a thin layer. Thank goodness I did! Once the color dries, it looks matte, and lifeless. But after you put on the gloss, it was something else. there is so much dimension! And I daresay it makes my lips look much more plump. I'm already thinking of the other colors I wanted to try, and I know I'll be re-purchasing again. If you are unsure of which color to try first, go for Sparkling Sherry. It's a nice, medium toned mauve with a slight shimmer to it. Enjoy!
I have an olive/yellow toned complexion and never really wore red lipstick before..but this looks absolutely gorgeous! It made my lips appear fuller and brought out my dark brown eyes. I love the fact that it is so creamy. I like to add a little gloss over mine as well to keep it soft. I paired it with Tarte gel-blush in Flush and it works perfectly. I love that it layers on well so you can go for a sheer look or a more dramtic, darker look easily. I'm new to this line and would buy other shades again.
