After a month of using this product twice a day I no longer need to use lipliner to suggest fullness of my upper lip and to prevent lipstick "bleed." In other words, my upper lip is plumper than it's ever been and the tiny lines above and around it are GONE. My pigment's back, too. I'm 63. This stuff delivers! My lower lip is looking pretty juicy, too. :)

I've been using this for the past two weeks to remove all my makeup and cleanse my face at night, and I can't find a single "con" to post about it. This one is all "pros" for me. It does what it says it will, and at a very reasonable price.

ETA: My skin loves this, and it is not drying for me.

If you want to appear flawless (and poreless) in about 3 seconds, this is your foundation.
.
I do use a silicone primer with it, only because I don't want it to interfere with my current skin care regime (Baltic Collagen). I wrap my hair in a towel first, and I recommend that you do, too, or it will definitely land in your hairline. One quick Z-shaped spritz does the trick …

ETA: 8/11/2013 - I have been using this product daily for well over 2 years. The improvement in my skin's texture, firmness, elasticity and the diminishing of my facial lies (both fine and deep) maxxed out at about 6 months into my twice-daily routine with it. Since then I have only used it at night and those amazing results are still delivered reliably (year in and year out) with one pump …Read more

Sadly, this foundation was an extreme disappointment for me. I suppose I expected it to have a little of the magic his lipsticks have become famous for, but the quality of this foundation doesn't come close. There are many drugstore creme foundations that are far better in terms of durability, texture, appearance, evening out the complextion, transfer resistance, and color range. Not to …Read more

Would I buy this product again? Yes, yes, YES! This is a great multi-purpose tinted moisturizer/sunscreen/sheer foundation that is also the BEST primer under foundation that I've ever used. I am seriously impressed. My normally reactive skin loves this formula, and combined with the companion tinted eye cream, it's all I need for a pretty and casual look. With a little brow …Read more

This TM is amazing. It's a one-color-fits-all shade, and I have to say that I never have any luck with products that claim to magically match my skin color..
.
But this light weight, velvety TM matches my NC15 skin perfectly. The coverage is sheer, but the opacity is really nice. It evens out my skin color beautifully and actually minimizes the look of my pores. It gives me a …

I have never used a more effective lip balm than this one. It does what it says it will do. In the 3 weeks I've been using it, my lips have become soft and, yes!, fuller. I love the look of them, now, just wearing this balm alone. And it tastes and smells like a creamsickle. I just ordered 2 more of them. One for my office and one for my car. I'm never gonna be without this one.

What a find! This isn't just the best drug store foundation I've ever worn, it's best foundation I've ever worn - period. And, trust me, I have tried them all. I don't blink at paying $60-$120/oz. for foundation that really per forms, and this one was only $15.
.
I use a flat top brush to stipple this on in the early morning. No primer or concealer necessary …

I had hoped this would make a great powder foundation for me, but it isn't. It settles into my fine lines and pores and makes me look older than I am. :( It also comes off on my clothes, cellphone, and husband. It's a total, epic fail for me as a foundation.
.
So, given that it's a spendy product, I tried to use it a setting powder. It's OK for that, but I still have …
