I'll start with the pros. The lightest shade is a dupe of NAR's Siberia. If you're super pale & warm toned like me you'll know all too well what a pain in the *** it is to find such light shades!

I also really love the concept of this, shine controlling make up. I'm very oily & most foundations only further make me look like a greaseball.

Now for the cons... It's a shame Nuetrogena did such a bad job with this product, as it could of easily have been a best seller. My biggest complaint is the texture. Who else thought something must of been wrong with the batch they got? Ive learned that I'm not alone on this & that every bottle is the same. It's literally gritty, like dollar store toothpaste. I felt like I was applying water mixed in with sand to my face. If feeling it wasn't bad enough - trust me, it didn't look good either! The shine controlling ingredients only worked for about an hour.

I will not repurchase nor reccomend.
