I feel like there is a lot of confusion about this product. Is it in replacement of your moisturizer or in addition to? A primer? Best applied after your foundation as a highlighter?

I think it really has multiple uses for different people and to label it as simply a moisturizer or strictly a highlighter among various reviews can make it really confusing for some on how to best …

Fabulous.
So affordable, great quality.
There is something special about this brush. I find that even when I've finished doing my makeup- if anything looks streaky or not blended well, I grab this brush and use it to blend everything. Almost gives an airbrushed look. I would go as far as saying it's a "finishing brush" in addtion to it being great for foundation …

Prior to buying this, I was using Estee Lauders minimal makeup, but that ended up looking a little cakey by the end of the day.I wanted something that is super light, lasts in summer weather, and imparts a healthy glow. I tried hyperreal from MAC- too heavy and purple/pink sheeen to it. Wanted something I could apply all over, but not soo shimmery it created shine under my eyes and in places I …Read more

The best self-tanner I have ever used. I took it with me on a cruise and applied it during the week and everyone complimented me on the nice suntan I was getting. The tint can be a little scary at first, especially if you are fair, but it washes off. This is why this product amazes me: The other day I applied some on my arms (only had a little left) and I was walking 10 minutes here and there in …Read more

I have both silver dusk and bronze, and the trick to using these is to dip a big powder brush in it...then wipe the bottom of the brush along the side of the container and even tap the brush a few times. So you cannot see any of the product on the brush. Then very very lightly sweep over the areas you want to highlight. I repeat this two or three times and the result is amazing. A beautiful …Read more

I'm in my early twenties. I have normal to dry in the winter skin, with occassional break-outs. Have struggled with finding the right moisturizer. I have tried ALL of them from Aveeno to biotherm, lancome, avon, L'Oreal, ponds, clinque, you name it, I've tried it. I just wanted something that made my skin feel good and complemented my make-up application. Nothing was suiting me …Read more

If you are without an eyelash curler, don't put this on. However, if you use a curler, this mascara looks great. I like it because, with a curler, it gives me beautiful volume without ANY clumps. It won't work well if you do the three step curl. (curl at the eyelid, curl the middle, curl the top). It works amazingly if you just curl at the eyelid a few times. It's not too wet of a …Read more

This product is just fantabulous. I've experimented with countless products to achieve that healthy glow, because my skin certainly didn't on it's own. I've tried similar spray bottle face mists such as the Body Shop's vitamin E spray and their vitamin C spray. Meh. Not to mention numerous other products like smashbox artificial light, red earth glow for face, mac shimmer …Read more
