Oh my god. Some commenter on here said to saturate a cotton pad and put it on your damp face and lay there with it for a bit. I did that last night for a while, then slathered with cerave moisturizer.

My face is incredibly hydrated and plump this morning.

I'm in freaking heaven. I'm almost 27, and my forehead is really strong and thus producing wrinkles. I've …

Between NC and NW 30, I got golden glow. Many colors seemed too pink. This one is too yellow. I am personally in the olive range.

I will be comparing this to glominerals. They are in the same price range and have similar claims. I am wearing the same moisturizer for both because it doesn't break me out (eucerin healing cream). This obviously effects how oily I get, and may alter …

I seem to be the minority!
I have the orange tube, untinted. Yes, it leaves a white cast. I'm NC25 and it's not that bad, and I wear makeup anyway.

White cast aside, this sunscreen does. It's. Job. it's fantastic. I barely tanned while I was in Maui. It was smoldering sun every single day and didn't burn once. I tried to be diligent about reapplication …

Sigh. I think I'll be buying this again. (sigh because of the price)
One compact lasted just over four months. That's OK, I guess.

Look. Powder foundations are awesome. They're quick (biggest plus), they're easy to apply, and they're great for touch-ups. Unfortunately it's SO difficult to find a good one. This is definitely one of the better ones …

Rewriting this review. I tried it for longer to get a better idea of it.

Pros:
- Volume
- No smudges on me (oily skin), including the lower lash line. Huge plus.
- Some length
- Black is very black

Cons:
- Weighs down lashes (need to curl after it dries..)
- Drying takes a while (at least 5-10 min)
- Not the easiest application, brush is …

I find that pink polishes are streakier in application.

I love the colour on my skintone though, for some reason it just works really well and seems to last decently.

Takes 3 layers to go opaque. One layer would be pretty and sheer if it wasn't a streaky formula.

Okay...I really enjoyed the smell of this from the bottle in the store, so I bought the rollerball because it was on sale. It smells TOTALLY different and I hate it.

Has anyone else experienced this problem?!

I am surprised by the mixed reviews, as well.

If your lightened hair has gone brassy or yellowy and you want to neutralize it, this does an excellent job. It's very powerful, takes five minutes, and if you follow with a conditioner afterwards you shouldn't have any more dryness problems than usual.

I have not tried the 'warm' tones, only the cool purple …

Bought this in translucent. I like MAC blot powder a lot, but it's expensive and only lasts me a month.

OK...anyway, I'm reaaally regretting spending 10CDN on this. I'm oily within ten minutes. It does nothing, just looks cakey and gross as the day goes on. I have NO idea why this is so hyped...I'm guessing some people just aren't as oily as I am …
