I'm not the best at describing scents, but all I can say is that this is my signiture scent. It's classic. It's smells feminine but not overly floral or overly musky. I find it very balanced and appropriate for all occassions. It's classic, in my opinion. And I love that a little bit of it goes a long way!
I used Daring Red. It's quite bright and is an amazing shade for a fair skin tone.
More than that, it actually lasted all day, as promised. On top of that, it didn't overly dry out my lips for a stain. Of course it went on very matte, but the glos helped. However, I didn't feel like my lips were dehydrated the rest of the day if I wsn't diligent about adding gloss. I definitely recommend this and find it much more valuable than that lip scent stuff.
These are the only powders I will use for the rest of my life. I'm not kidding, they're the best. I used them on my wedding day and I will continue to use them everyday.
The packaging of course is lovely and functional.
I love the shade on the left for all over every day, the middle as a highlighter and the one on the right as a bronzer. However, when I'm filming a video I use the bronzer all over instead of foundation and I think it looks much better on camera.
Hands down, the only thing that keps my face from falling off during my 2 rounds of accutane. It kept my lips from bleeding, for heavens sake. Perfect for very dry skin and not creating additional breakouts. I definitely recommend for any type of dry skin irritation, even severe.
I love this product. I love the matte look even though my skin still looks glowing. Granted, I've only used the trial size, so I don't use it on the regular. I'm also not the biggest fan of all of the ingredients but I don't think they're terrible.
I have very sensitive and oily skin (2 rounds of accutane) and this doesn't irritate my acne at all, nor does it create any blackheads. However, I never use this under makeup with the exception of the hourglass powders or some blush, so I can't speak to how it works with makeup.
Quite honestly, I don't know how I feel about this product. I've been using it for a few weeks, once a day in the morning and I have no complaints.
I have incredibly sensitive skin (2 rounds of accutane and it's perpetually breaking out and oily). I haven't been breaking out any more than normal, and possibly even less. I've even noticed my blackheads aren't so ridiculous. So it's definitely not a bad thing.
But also, sometimes I feel like there's a light layer that sits on my skin. THat it never fully absorbs, even though I use a very small amount.
I love the packaging, the gold spoon, the ingredients and the smell. But I'm not too sure if it's worth the cost. (I received mine as a birthday gift)
It's so strange to see all the gunk that comes out! These definitely do what they say they're going to, I just wish they had a product to use AFTER you open up your pores and get the clogged stuff out so they don't reclog. I continue to use them, though...
