excellent products/excellent value!
from Calgary, AB
This brand is on my vanity permanently and used daily.I am a self confessed beauty junkie with products from drug/department store/boutique/spa/dermatologist lines and pretty much everything in between. ColorEvolution is in my current top ten brands.Safe, natural and fabulous results. Oh, and the price point! What's not to love?If you find the foundation sitting on your skin and accentuating fine hair, you need to change your method of application. Apply the product with the recommended technique, then spritz your face with a fine mist of water (you know, the 'thermal spring waters' from France - there are several good brands). With a clean brush or sponge lightly wipe down your facial hair. This will set the product as well as solving the unwanted 'highlighted facial hair' issue.Oh, and the reason they give you two different colours is for blending your own personal colour. Rarely does anyone match perfectly to a 'pre-blended' foundation. If the second colour is too dark, use it for contouring.If you find the eye shadows too sheer, apply with a moist brush (finger, sponge, q-tip...). This will give more intensity. It also helps if you use an eye primer. [Gold colour too bright for you? Add a little to your hair product for a flattering lift.]Think outside the box girls! This product line is about as pure as it gets - experiment!Have fun!
Bottom Line Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

You look stunning
from Kingston Ontario
I bought this because I liked the idea of natural products on my aging skin. I'm no spring chicken but the first time I used this kit, I got that headline from a young lady and my husband asked "Do I know you?"He's not too keen on makeup but every time I wear Colorevolution, I get compliments. Apparently the shiny eyeshadow is not too shiny after all. Try itI ordered more eyeshadow colours which I have yet to use.I've also used both foundation colours for day and evening and they work.I have tried other lines from Shopping Channel but this has me excited again about makeup
This looks really good on 55plus skin!
from THUNDER BAY
This is the first mineral foundation I've used that doesnt look dry, cakey or powdery. I love how the medium tones give me a very natural, subtle tan . I wished I had bought the lighter kit just for later in the fall . I use a buffer brush from IT cosmetics that really helps with a smooth application. The blush is very surprisingly natural, just a little bit gives you that perfect glowt...much like the very popular Nars shade, except not as sparkly as Nars. I agree, the eye shadows are a bit to shiney for me, but overall for the price you're getting 2 foundation shades and a really lovely blush. I hope TSC continues to carry this line. I love the fact that it has no additives, chemicals ...just pure minerals...really lets my skin breathe snd doesnt cake in the fine lines. Really nice stuff!

I did like the foundation and the blush,it had nice coverage,felt light on my skin and lasted quite well but the eye shadows were just too,too sparkly for me. They would probably be fine for a young girl but I am in my forties and it just didn't look right. Might try just the foundation at a later date and if they had a more matt shadow that would suit someone more mature would probably try this line again. I would recommend it to a friend that was younger but not for a mature woman.

Not for me, too much shine in eyeshadows
I was looking forward too receiving these products but was not impressed. The face powder just laid on top and accented fine hairs, the eyeshadow had too much mica in it and made the fine lines in my lids really stand out. This is more appropriate for the younger girls not mature women in their sixties.
Bottom Line No, I would not recommend this to a friend
Feels very good on my skin
Tthe best part of this kit (I have the FAIR one) is the foundation powder. I look forward to using this during the very hot weather - it goes on very light and honestly takes years off my face! The brushes are excellent and the blush is perfect. However, the eyeshadow is a bit wimpy. The colours don't come through very well. However, they're good for day wear.
Liked the FOundation COlour I ordered...
from Pickering (Ontario)
I ordered the Honey medium colour, and it is perfect for my summer skin. However, I expected when it said 2 foundations, that I would get the same two I ordered. This was not the case. The 2nd one is darker and not suitable for my skin shade. Not sure why they did this.The eyeshadows are OK, at least 2 out of 3. I use the pink and purple, but the gold colour is not suitable for older woman.Will buy foundation again.
I bought the 5 pc starter kit and was impressed with how easy they were to apply. The foundation just glides on and looks natural but at the same time giving great coverage. The eye shadows are great for evening so use sparingly in daytime to give that needed touch of glam. The blush is a shade that I haven't tried before but looks great with everything. These products are gentle on my sensitive skin and are priced reasonably.
Not so impressed
I was excited to receive my products only to be disappointed. The lightest foundation powder was suitable and the other way too orange! The eye shadows are too light and shiny which is not forgiving if you have any lines. The brushes are very nice and the blush itself is a complimentary soft pink. It doesn't compare to another well known mineral product I have tried. One the positive, its a new company and I am sure they will catch on.
Good value for your dollar!
from Ancaster on
Really nice coverage.Don't overuse the product and you will be happy with the overall look. Shadows are nice and natural if you don't over do it! Brushes are okay for eye shadows and concealer but not for blush. I don't understand why some of the makeup lines don't include all the necessary tools to use with their products. Just doesn't make sense if you want people to buy your makeup line not to include the tools to apply the make up the way it is meant too. I ordered the mascara and returned it. Did not stay on me....raccoon eyes! But overall a very good quality product and great value for your dollar. I would recommend this product to friends and i would purchase again.
