It took some time for me to love this. I did not find that it was as crazy full coverage as it is supposed to be and it is incredibly drying. That being said, when mixed with Cetaphil Redness Relieving Daily Facial Moisturizer SPF 20 it creates a beautiful, dewy finish with natural coverage (light but perfecting). I then layer the concealer on top for the undereyes and forehead and it becomes so natural and perfect. Mixing it with the tinted moisturizer deals with the dryness of the concealer. If you do use it, I would recommend a hydrating primer or foundation. I had terrible luck with a matte foundation; everything separated and I looked old and patchy. Used right: a great product.
I purchased this product because James Charles loves them, but it is not my favorite lip product, especially for the price. I gave it several tries and while the color payoff is nice and the formula is not streaky, it does not dry down nor does it sit comfortably on the lips- it tends to half dry down and get sticky. Nice lipstick but not amazing. The best use I have found for my deep maroon color is to apply a small amount on the center of my lips and then blend with my fingers for a just kissed look.
This is the best travel palette ever! The blush is not excessively pigmented, which I love, but it is shimmery if that matters to you. Perfect combination of colors and the light shimmers can be used as a highlight in a pinch. Very pigmented shadows that blend well! The darker colors will fall out a bit so make sure you tap your brush or powder your undereye.
Wonderful product! Sits comfortably on the lips, does not crumble, and wears perfectly. I use a lip liner to apply to prevent feathering but if applied with a small lip brush for precision that isnt necessary. It is not a 24 hour product but it fades very nicely. If powdered it will stay on fairly well.
I have tried this twice now and let me tell you-- it BURNS. I could not keep it on for more than a minute or two because it hurts so badly! Masks should not burn (none of your skincare should be painful). At first I thought it may have been in combination with another skincare product I already had on, so I tried it again after only using a mild face wash and the results were the same. Will not be using again since I cant even keep it on my face long enough to see results.
wears all day! I have oily tendencies around my nose and forehead and when I bake with it I have no oil. Right now my skin is going on 7 hours of makeup and the places I baked are matte and smooth. I have dry undereyes so I recommend a hydrating undereye primer like Smashbox Photo Finish Hydrating Under Eye Primer, 0.33 Fluid Ounce so that they dont get tight and flakey!
Very greasy on the skin, but it works! I would not recommend use under foundation but for a day at the beach it does the job perfectly. I used it in Puerto Rico and my face was the only place that got sunburned.

You cant go wrong with this product. Yes, it is pricey but so are makeup brushes. If used correctly it can be used for creams and powders. I use mine for my foundation, concealer, and setting powder and if I had 2 i would probably do bronzer and highlight with it as well. Only downside is that it is difficult to clean.
It is an okay product. The little beads are fun and it lightly exfoliates but I did not experience any improvement in skin color or blemishes. Feels nice on the skin, makes my face feel clean but can cause some dryness.
