I am a former long time user of the discontinued Clairol Radience Color Gloss. I was using a mix of medium golden blonde and light natural blonde to tint the sprinkling of gray in my dark brown hair into golden highlights. I found the medium golden beige blonde pulled very dark on its own. Very sadly I bought up stock and made my supply stretch as long as possible by using an ounce at a time on …Read more

Tried this several times because I like the color. Unfortunately it is very streaky and looks a mess even with additional coats. Guess the queen of England has someone to apply it for her since this is her favorite. I personally am surprised Essie is selling this junk.

I actually love this stuff. The scent. The effects. I used it for years and so did DH however when the microbeads furor came out I just could not continue with this product. We now use a st. Ives product which is ok but not a great substitute. I understand j&j will be getting rid of the microbeads in the future. In that case would repurchase in a heartbeat. I miss this stuff!

Wow. I don't know which of these I got but I did not have the same experience as other reviewers. Got this blush in a kit with argan BB cream and argan oil. This is so glittery I hardly began to apply it when I had to wash it off. Sorry don't know what happened here but it's horrid. Such a pretty product too. Returned it immediately.

I have the light medium, all that was available. It does look dark but blends in and may be an advantage for covering darker spots. Natural finish without glitter, caking or settling in lines. Dotted it on then buffed in with a Real Techniques brush. Does need a little powder- I used the bronzing butter lightly all over.
UPDATE: I have to downgrade this. After a few uses I couldn't …

I have the light bronzer. It is very subtle and can be used all over the face. It is totally matte, no unnatural glitter. A very good neutral look for winter or for paler skin in summer. I used in place of powder. A little pricey for DS but will probably last a long time. Comes with a little brush but I used a Real Techniques brush. Very cute colorful packaging.

I am actually running out of this. I have never run out of a powder blush. I usually use Clinique blushes but I got this one based on reviews. If you buy your makeup from Nordstrom it is free shipping and returns. I am an older woman but fair and a little freckled. I have used this summer and winter and you almost can't go wrong. It perfectly enhances a natural flush. It does not come with …Read more

OK, I really like this, it goes on very smooth under the eyes with pinky finger, doesn't settle in fine lines, can be used on spots, dries so it won't rub off, looks very natural. I have been using this for quite a while and there seems to be a lot left in the tube. Expensive but lasts a long time. BUT for some reason this stuff just starts coming out of the tube by itself. Literally I …Read more
