I am MAC NW13 and freckled. This is mid-toned in color depth, but don't worry about overapplication. It gives lovely, believable color without a hint of tangerine fakery. I do not contour; color is applied to the hairline, cheekbones, chin, bridge of nose, along jaw and carried onto the neck, with the remainder on the brush dusted on ears -- where the sun would hit. TheBalm's products …Read more

This blush is a gorgeous, universally flattering pink with a touch of peach in it. It is beautiful on its own and on top of Bahama Mama bronzer. Its staying power shares the endurance of its sisters in theBalm collection. Quality and color payoff = value. A winner.

This amounts to a silicone-based primer with a transparent wash of color in it. You can expect from it the same effects that a primer delivers. My skin felt smothered, making this intolerable for me to wear. I am not a fan of primers. It's far better to get a good serum to perform the same function as a primer with the benefits a serum offers. The product also balled up during application. I …Read more

I have this blush in The Secret's Out and The One. This blush lasted from morning application until I removed it at night, without setting powder or setting spray. I've never owned a blush capable of such a performance. It could be judged pricey, but considering how little is used for performance so enduring, this blush has great value. I have normal skin and apply this over Simple …Read more

I am MAC NW13, and freckled, which I love. I adore this bronzer/blush for the inclusion of red in its color, which makes it so natural on me. The red is undetectable in the pan, but you will see it when applied. In the pan, it looks like an ordinary bronzer, not light, not dark, but mid-tone, belying its unique nature. I sometimes use it as blush with Chocolate Soleil to warm the complexion …Read more

This product earns five stars in every category. Exquisite texture and color allows a light touch with the brush to assure beautiful, believable warmth. I do not contour, applying this product only where sun would naturally hit on high points of face. A masterful creation, Too Faced. Thank you.

I have normal skin and wear N1 in this foundation. I prefer light coverage that allows my freckles to show, and will not tolerate heaviness from any product. This is my foundation when I require one. This can be layered without detection. Shake well. I apply it over Dr. Carver's Miracle Serum, then moisturizer (various brands from drugstore, ranging from 30spf to 50spf, depending on how I …Read more
