this made me look like i had a nice, subtle glow from within. unfortunately it doesn't seem to agree with my skin. i have sensitive and normal-to-dry skin, and after a few hours of wearing this tinted moisturizer it seems to dry my skin up. by the end of the day you can clearly see the moisturizer on top of my skin. maybe because it's oil free? really wish this worked for me. it will …Read more

this makes me look like i glow from within. unfortunately, every time i apply it, it makes my skin sting and i have red rashes on my face the morning after. it lessens when i use primer underneath the TM but the fact that this is labeled as a tinted moisturizer and causes my skin to dry out and STING... i will not repurchase and will find a gentler alternative.

This is for the orange Enriched version. I love the feel of the cleansing oil on my face and it gets all the gunk off. But with my normal-to-dry skin, i can't use it every day as it dries my skin out. Instead I alternate with a more moisturizing cleanser on the off days.

this color looks like a natural rosy flush on me. i only wish it had better staying power.

a little goes a long way though and ive barely made a dent in my sample size. i had to transfer it to a larger sifter jar though. an overall great buy, it'll be hard to go back to $30 blush after this.

i wear be medium beige.

thank god i didn't purchase this - i received it as a christmas gift. i've tried it multiple times since than and it has never really worked for me. with normal application it barely shows up on my NC30 skin.... and when i try to pump up the color, i end up looking like a clown. it feels similar to the photo finish primer upon application, but it pills a lot. a makeup artist told me …Read more

It temporarily "brightens" your face but does nothing long-term for dark spots. The shiseido SA who sold this to me told me this was the cure-all solution for my uneven skin tone. After six weeks of using it there were no noticeable differences. I wish i had looked it up on MUA before purchasing but this was an impulse + "i trust the shiseido lady" buy. will never repurchase …Read more

pros:
+ great sun protection
+ lasts all day
+ does not clog pores
+ great for sensitive skin

cons:
- when applied, leaves a grayish-white cast on skin. it's peach-pink in the tube and does not go well with my nc25 skin. after twenty minutes, most of the white cast has disappeared but it is still not back to my normal coloring
- white cast is VERY …

This made my normal-dry skin even drier! Unlike the other reviewers this did nothing for my complexion or my pores. I am also not a fan of the packaging, as it is in a jar. I do not recommend this if your skin is on the dry side.
