I love the convenience but honestly I am nervous about how well this is really protecting my skin. It does seem pretty easy to get a decent amount of powder on without it ever looking unnatural, but still, powder is powder. How well is it really covering my skin?

I'll keep using it and see how well it protects. At the very least I'm probably more apt to reapply throughout the …

This did help a bit with the 'over-processed mushy' feel of my color-treated hair BUT the tradeoff was no shine. Left me with raggedy ends - even the Mastey detangler I usually use on light days doesn't do that. Matte finish on hair is not what I'm after. Won't buy again.

I bought this on a whim, too lazy to go to Sephora and get a Stila eye glaze. I should preface my review by saying that NOTHING lasts all day on my lids, even with PD shadow base, it all fades away. Well, not anymore! This stuff goes on easy, I just smear it around, let it dry and put my other shadows over it. And it lasts all day. Just what I've been looking for. (MAC paints are too too …Read more

Bummer. I wanted to like this - when it first goes on and dries it leaves a nice matte finish and seems to tighten everything just a bit. BUT it flakes up under my NARS gels fraicheur, badly. It also did this with PD's own tinted moisturizer. Be aware that this product may conflict with your favorite foundation! It's a drag to have to wash off everything and start over!

Love love love the colors - totally bummed that they fade off within an hour or so. Not in extreme weather, but like, sitting around the house. Sad! It's like that makeup they have for little girls that goes on and comes right off.

Luckily these were a Bargain Bank score so I don't feel too ripped off.

I have the lavender, which is for blonde shades. This shampoo MUST be used in tandem with the conditioner (or any conditioner) because it leaves hair tangled and just yucky feeling. My colorist says it's supposed to do that but I have no idea why. So? Does it keep the blonde from turning brassy or any miracle like that? Not that I could tell. I hate to give B&B a bad review but this …Read more

I wanted to love this but.. I don't. It does have GREAT hold, too great for me, left my hair a crunchy and brittle. It smells good, looks cool (it's pretty runny though and sort of a pain to apply from the tub, would be better in a tube...) but overall, I'll stick with Beach Hair.

Adds body to my end-of-day limp hair. Does what it says it does - freshens fine hair. I'm a Kusco-Murphy convert. Love this product. (I didn't get the tamed flyawyas though! If anything, this made my hair fluffier, less tame, maybe I'm using it wrong?) Smells good too, and it does feel refereshing on the scalp.

Very nice, sheer powder in compact form. Has mulicolored sections that blend when you use a brush. Sits well, doesn't look cakey or fake over foundation. I'm very happy with this powder.

I like the way this applies but the finish is very shiny, especially for an oil-free foundation. Even on my normal skin, which is not oily, this left a gloss all over that I didn't like. The Awake powder compact works to tone down the shine, but I found that didn't last and my face was again too shiny after just an hour or so. I would not recommend this unless you have very dry skin.
