I can start this off by saying the product itself I love. I like the slow releasing pump, I never end up with too much on my hands, and the product is lovely, it blends in easily and after it's on I couldn't even tell I had anything on! I have very dry skin and most every product I try on is too cakey for me, but this lovely foundation just soaks right up and looks wonderful. The reason I don't give it the stars it probably deserves is almost all the colors I've seen at the stores are too yellow. I'm not sure if Petal was added in later or my store oddly didn't carry it, but my options were between Ivory and Champagne and both were too yellow. I can correct the yellow with powder but I wish I didn't have to.
Loved that it's blends easily, light coverage

A beautiful color for both lips and cheeks

I think I'm with everyone else when I say when I first saw the color come out of the bottle I was a bit shocked. But after trying it at the Macy's counter, I just had to have it. First I tried it on my lips in the search for a coral pout. It soaks in beautifully and it feels moisturizing as it soaks in. I've learned to do a good lip scrub before putting on a lip stain and it works wonders for a lovely matte color. I love my lips and my boyfriend loves kissing me without any goop on him. It's also a lovely cheek color, but honestly I prefer it on my lips!
Loved that it's coral, matte, Long Lasting

I am constantly looking for that lovely Glow, and this is one of my favorite products. It smells wonderfully, and the colors blend together to make a multi-faceted natural looking pop of color on my cheeks. My daily regimen is Hoola for contouring, Hervana on my cheeks, and a bit of Watt's Up to finish off. This wonderfully smelling product is the best blush I've tried, and I kind of like that it's hard to go heavy on it. I can swirl my blush brush in the box and go straight to my cheek and it's just the perfect amount of color, no needing to tap off like many others.
Loved that it's great smelling, sheer, multi colored

I was floored by this product. A BeneBabe at my local Macy's sat me down for a new look, and when she showed me my lashes after using They're Real I think I was speechless for once in my life! I have very thin eyebrows and eyelashes due to thyroid problems and I was amazed how full and thick my eyelashes looked! This product is amazing, it's like falsies in a bottle! I immediately said "I need to buy this" and I now wear it almost every day, and I am constantly spreading the word on how awesome it is. The only things I would write as not perfect is that washing it off can be a little difficult, it requires some special attention when I wash my face. If you aren't careful with application it CAN be clumpy, but I blame my unskilled hands more than the product.
Loved that it's thickening, amazing

I was intimidated by this product at first as I am very fair skinned, but the woman doing my makeup at the benefit counter was a contouring queen and changed my make up routine forever! As dark as it looks in the pallet, correctly shaking off your powder brush will put just enough on your face to give you an effect without looking cakey. This product is NOT too dark for us fair skinned ladies! I have a sun kissed look with the cheekbones I never thought I had! My favorite is to use the 3B technique with Hoola, follow up with some Hervana on my cheekbones, and just a little bit of highlight with Watt's Up. I am CONSTANTLY being complimented on my look.
Loved that it's matte, blendable

I love this product! I have super dry skin that has no natural glow to it. A few swipes of Watt's Up and I have a glow that could compete with a pregnant woman! It's super smooth and blends in effortlessly, I couldn't be happier.
Loved that it's glowy, Smooth

my skin color is fairly light so im pale but not white white. is this bronzer good for like winter time and mainly is it over all face or contour

i need to no if its overall face and does it make me look orange !!!
I use it both for contouring and over all depending on the day, I first bought mine in Winter and I was so happy I felt like I'd been spending days n a beach. It's definitely not orange in the least. I don't use the brush it comes with, I use a powder brush and always make sure I tap it off so I don't get too much on my face.

I use i'm pure for sure foundation. Will this work on me or is it too dark?

I have very fair skin, and use the same foundation. I loooove this product, it's a very subtle effect, not too dark at all.
