If you're looking for a foundation that gives you light, yet radiant coverage, this is the one for you. I have combo skin, but even though this is a moisturizing foundation, it isn't heavy or oily in the slightest. This is very much "you but better" foundation, as it is light coverage yet evens over your skin tone and gives you a glow (not shiny, not oily, not dewy, just a …Read more

At first I was pleased with this foundation...the color match was good (Creamy Beige for my medium-light asian skin), and the consistency was nice also, as was the coverage. In addition, it seemed to last well throughout the day. But then I took pictures and I noticed my skin wasn't looking radiant anymore. It just looked kind of flat and waxy...I realized the foundation just kind of sits …Read more

This stuff is complete and utter crap.

a) the bottle design is horrible. It makes it really hard to hold the bottle while trying to spray

b) the actual product is junk. It makes your hair crunchy with very little volumizing effect

Bottom line...if you're looking for a root pump that actually does something, go for Big Sexy Hair Root Pump.

Love this! I watched VL on QVC do a demonstration on the best way to apply this product to cheeks, so want to share that …

LOOOOOOOOVE this foundation :) I have combo skin (normal cheeks, oily t-zone), and have had failure after failure in the foundation department. Usually, the foundation breaks down on my t-zone and looks awful as the day wears on, but Powdery wears MUCH better. At around 4pm I need to use 1 blotting sheet, and then its refreshed for the rest of the day. I never have to reapply. …Read more

I found this for $2 @ Big Lots so I thought, wth, might as well try it. I FREAKING LOVE IT. I put around a quarter sized amount and distribute it throughout damp/wet hair. Then I just comb it it through and let it air dry. If I want more crown volume, I apply Big Sexy Hair root pumping mousse at my roots, and the radical creme everywhere else. Then I blowdry my crown, and usually let the …Read more

I mainly bought this product with the hope that it would help clear out clogged pores. I also had some blotchy skin with small acne (not large ones, but more of the little bumpy kind), and old acne scars.

I've now been using this product for about 3 months, so I think I'm ready to share my experiences up to this point, and will probably update in another 3 …

***PICS included***

About me:

Fair-med asian with combo skin (normal cheeks/oily t-zone).

Cons:

The color I chose is a touch too light for lightly tanned summer skin, but would be perfect for winter. For now, I use a light dusting of bronzer (Laguna), which makes it a much better match. I think I will try Sand Beige next, but that's for a …

About me:

Fair-med asian skin tone, moderately pigmented lips.

I bought this sight unseen thinking it would be more of a nude. Haha nope! Its orange, but very wearable. It really brightens up my face when I have this on. I would actually compare it a bit to Rimmel's Kasbah, so if you're unsure if this sort of shade works on you …
