Wish I read reviews here before buying because it felt as though it was burning my skin, particularly on my cheeks (I'm combination-dry). Scent is nice, though. But I can't bear to throw it away, so now I'm using it as a shaving cream.
A rosy flush that takes practice to apply. What I do is put a stripe on one cheek, dip it again in the bottle, and apply another stripe on the opposite side. Then I close the bottle quickly and blend ASAP. Works like a charm in my morning routine, looks good enough on my bare skin (my goal at 6am isn't to look perfect, just alive), and lasts from 9-5 with some fading. Yes, it stains fingers …Read more
This primer is amazing! My foundation stays put without fading and doesn't leave me in a shiny mess. I had it on yesterday in the blistering heat and once I got home, I barely noticed any shine/oilness on my face. While it does leave a white cast on my face (foundations do look lighter on top of this), smells alot like Nars' Eyeshadow Base*, and is quite expensive, I'm willing …Read more
I own one in Punch Drunk and it's the most amazing coral orange. Full on bold colour without being the least bit drying, and incredibly glossy. There's a funny smell to it (reminds me of brie rinds), but that disappears after application.

Have two in Amsterdam (rosy nude) and Milan ("spiced" apricot). Great colours, no shimmer, but the cooling effect was too much for my lips. It made my lips so cold that when I removed the lip colour, I'd end up with darker, almost purplish lips.
Have one in 12 Corail Fauve and I really like it. It definitely is a "glossy stain", and despite the initial stickiness, it wears well. After eating/drinking the glossiness of the colour fades, but a decent stain remains. It can be applied in layers for a more true-to-bottle colour, but I find after the second layer, I'm good to go.
Own one in Dallas and I love it. Asides from its slick and non-sticky texture, the colour is amazing. It's a warm rose colour, not anywhere as cool as its powder counterpart, and works for MLBB look. Had I gotten one of the sheerer shades, I might've knocked off one star, but this one is just perfect that it's my new HG.
