I was drawn to this from the claim that it looks great on all skin tones. So I picked this up from for $25. I have to say that I love just the look and feel to this compact. It looks and feels very high end, so this really felt like a treat!

The color looks great on my very fair skin. The first few times I wore it, I used a very light hand and slowly built the intensity I wanted to wear that day. I feel like I can wear this shade on my cheeks with almost any other colors on my face. If I am wearing a really intense eye look though, I feel more drawn to do a more nude-ish cheek. After playing around with this a few times, I decided to see what this would look like if I used to neutral cream blush base first. Wow! I was amazed at what a differene it made!! It made the color more intense right off the bat with very little powder on my brush. It also helped it stay on longer as well. I use a primer before I apply any makeup, but using a blush base really did help.

This is definately an investment at $25, at least to me. But I love this and will continue to recommend this and purchase it again in the future!

This is a really natural, pretty color that can work with tons of skin tones. It gives a beautiful glow, and it's not too pink nor too peachy at all. This is definitely a cult favorite for a reason. It is highly pigmented, with a decent staying power and is extremely gorgeous. It shows up really nicely on my NC20 skin, without being overly shimmery.

I actually bought this awhile back,but returned it because it's very much similiar to Coralista by Benefit. Regardless great product though ^ ^
