i give it a 4 out of 5 because this really sucks at controling oil. but the finish is very nice and natural. i use it to set my foundation (estee lauder double wear light) and i have to blot within 3 hours. my skin is very oily though, and this does not contain talc. in general the finish is great but it isn't long wearing and doesn't control shine for too long.

this makes me feel so pretty. i usually use this over blush. for me (NW20) i think it's too pink or matches my skin too much to be a highlight. it's my first MSF and it's made me want to buy more! i like it so much i want to get a backup. it's just a light pink color with some gold veining. for fair skintones it's good as a blush/over blush. on darker skintones it would …Read more

This ended my eternal search for an HG foundation. It lasts at least 8 hours and still looks good. If you sweat a lot it doesn't look quite as perfect but you definitely don't look yucky and it doesn't sink into your pores and get cakey. You'll just have a bit of a sheen. It doesn't break me out or cause any problems with my skin. Even it I don't set it with powder …Read more

I have mixed feelings about this. I LOVE the color! It really does brighten and looks like a really natural healthy pink blush. The packaging is cute but a little bulky and innconvenient. It didn't last me very long (like 5 months) since I really need to layer it on for it to show up even though I'm really pale. (NW 20) But I'm not sure if I'll be able to find a dupe. Maybe …Read more

I got this mostly because of the packaging and didn't use it very much at first because I thought it was too dark for me. (nw20) It's a brownie plum color and wouldn't really make the best blush for someone with lighter skin, but it works really well as a contour. Especially because for someone as light as me bronzer would look just a bit too obvious. It's not that great on …Read more

Don't buy this. I was looking for something to give me an allover glowy look, and this seemed like it would work. I tried mixing it with my foundation wich is water based, and I think this is oil based, so it just looked cakey and wierd and wasn't even noticable. I also noticed it broke me out around my nose, so I stopped using it there. And on the rest of my face my pores would be …Read more

I got this as a free sample and just used it for the heck of it. But this stuff works so well!! I didn't even know I had any signs of aging until this stuff made them go away. I had lotsa super teeny tiny lines on my nose and cheeks, most likely from over drying my skin with acne products, and when I used stuff like MSFs they became very noticable. And I was concerned with these smile lines …Read more

I don't know why most people don't seem to like this product very much, I love it! I have the one in the glass bottle. When the SA put it on me I had yucky skin, redness, some spots, and dry patches and this made them much less noticeable and made my pores tiny and hardly noticable. It makes my makeup go on much smoother. With my makeup on, I look like I have lovely poreless skin …Read more

Apr/27/2009

I didn't realize how unsatisfied I really was with this until I used MAC. I have very dark circles, and that's mainly what I used this for. Medium was way too dark and orange, and fair was the right color but the brightening thing kind of worked against the concealing. It made my undereyes look kinda grey, and if I put it on a blemish, the brightening just made it obvious. I also hated …Read more

Ok, I can't understand why everyone likes this stuff so much. I'm guessing you guys didn't use it too long. I like how it hides you pores, and gives a nice satin finish when you first put it on. But in about 2 hours that's all ruined, your pores will look huge, your face will look shiny and cakey. I used it for about three weeks because I liked it for a while. After that, I …Read more
