This blush has amazing pigmentation!! Doesn't fade. The orangey hue blends well with other illuminators, bronzers, and blushes on my NC43 skintone. The key is to use a light touch and only apply to one part of your cheek. Going overboard will ruin the effect and look tacky.

Dupe for NARS! for 3 bucks?! goes on very well...i do have to apply a couple coats but i like blending it with candid coral, which shows up as a pale shimmer on my NC43 skin!

as long as i have foundation underneath, tends to last a few hours at least!

Use another brush...the one provided is stiff/scratchy.

Take a lot of product and work fast...it dries faster!

I have this in teal, purple, brown, olive, and black. I LOVE it for that reason..I could buy multiple colors.

I have Nc43 skin so fading is not a huge deal on me, as it just winds up looking like eyeshadow, and is not super obvious anyway on my …

This foundation comes in 12 shades! It goes on very smoothly...and is good alone after putting on a moisturizer OR it is good to wear over the oil-free foundation/with the extra virgin minerals creme foundation.

Seriously, my face looked fresh and glowy--not like matte or cakey.

I blended it with my Mineral Foundation Brush from TBS...and Natural Caramel was the perfect …

Works well as a general base...matte finish so not great if your skin is dry/peeling. Definitely apply a moisturizer first and maybe a bronzer with a glow over it...if you want to avoid dry/cakey.

Also, you have to work quickly...it's not emollient enough to keep blending since it dries quickly.

Overall, good basic foundation.

Amazing...builds length and some volume....also does not interfere with/weigh down my naturally curly lashes!

I use this in combination with the brush-then-comb mascara.

Perfect match for my NC44 skin without any ashiness. Very lighteweight, light coverage but not at all drying and leaves a smooth, radiant appearance. Has a lot of gold pigment which balances out red and adds a glow. This is a great alternate to TM...especially if set with pressed powder.

i put this in while my hair is still wet or damp. this makes my hair so silky and shiny after I blow-dry or straighten or style it any way.

Even after it is dry, a small amount adds shine! Def would recommend for coarser hair.

The lighter one (No. 1) is a great match for my NC 43-45 skin tone without too much of a bronzing effect...No. 2 creates a more bronze tone. Nonetheless, it's a great bronzing powder with very light, buildable coverage. Compliments ANY foundation I am wearing by adding richness/color to my skin, especially since I tan so easily in the summer, and some of my foundations look ashy on me. …Read more

This is a great idea if you only do one sweep. Unfortunately, I feel like it takes more than one sweep to pick up dirt and whatnot...so I only use this in the morning. Before I sleep, I use a much milder toner so I can do more than one sweep to pick up makeup.
