I truly don't know what the fuss is about. All of the Sephora SAs rave over this and it just feels sticky on my skin. It doesn't absorb and it makes me very dewy. I would pass.

Ohhh...the scent....the horror! This foundation is great, but the scent ruined it. Too bad.
This just didn't work for me...it looked almost clown-like. I think the package (plastic) is horrible, and the surface of the CC had tons of little bubbles/dots/indentations all over when I bought it new. YUK. Back to Sephora.
I love this coverage...very smooth and natural, BUT I don't think my skin likes the SPF. FYI, I have a very difficult time with any SPF, except physical. :-) Try it!
I was very disappointed with the texture and longevity of this product. I picked it up to replace a broken MAC one in Jest. The color match was okay, but the quality is deplorable. The stuff was very gritty, IMO, not silky at all.

This is better than BE, IMO, but still not very natural looking. IT looks cakey, yet spotty. I can't get long wear out of it either.
I found my holy grail cleanser, which has rid me of my bacne agony! Thank you Neutrogena and Dr. Chung for recommending it. I SHOULD NOTE THAT I AM USING THE FOAMING FORMULA AND I THINK THIS MAKES A DIFFERENCE!****Update---Not sure why, but this doesn't work for me anymore?!

Overall, I am impressed. I bought it in Almond Glaze, which is a warm red/brown on me. It is not shimmery or metallic at all. It is a tiny bit sticky, but doesn't taste bad or smell bad. I like it better than a MAC lipglass, which IMO is waaaayy too sticky. I would check it out.
Agree that the taste and smell are deplorable on these....skip it.
I probably won't buy this again, because 1. the size is enormous for a gloss, and 2. the consistency is sooo light and moisturizing that it stays on for like 2 seconds. I found that applying over a sticky gloss helps to keep it on. BTW...The creator of this line is a real cool guy.

On the fence about this one. Seemed to look flawless in the store, but i can't duplicate that look. I'll keep trying though, cuz 60.00 is too much to let it collect dust.
Ugh...this made me break out bad and I don't think the coverage was particularly good either. Skip it!
Just got this is Real, which is a warm brozy color. Very nice texture...not sticky like MAC. Seems to last a long time, too. Go for it!

Extrememly moisturizing lip gloss, nice shade YLBB. I bought this when being made over by James, the creator of Pretty Pretty. I love it, and it is soooo soft and smooth on.

Unfortunately, this is yet another fndn that didn't hold up to my oily skin. ***sigh*** It has beautiful full coverage that looks very natural, but after a few hours it gives into shine (my nemesis). I would def recommend for combo girls, but I am more oily these days.
