Not for mature skin
I loved the idea of buffing this on my face and going out the door, unfortunately when I caught sight of myself in a mirror I looked like someone's elderly aunt in orange makeup. It does everything it claims it won't: it cakes and settles into wrinkles and changes color. I've tried FAIR and LIGHT and they both age me terribly though my skin's great and I use excellent moisturizers...
Bottom Line No, I would not recommend this to a friend

I like this foundation. I do wish that Jamie would demonstrate how to apply it and discuss how to determine which color is best for you. They do the sweeping motion, however do not actually describe how not to put too much on, which I sometimes do, and then it feels a bit heavy. I feel this is my error in the application. I Use the concealer and other products I this line.
Bottom Line Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

This did not work for me. Seems to make my skin oily and consequently melts off. Enhances all the defects instead of covering them up. I think this is more for a younger skin and would recommend as such.

This is an excellent product but you have to know how to use it, I just dab my forehead and each cheek and chin and then blend, followed by the bronzer, works great also can use your fingers for blending.

I love how quick and easy it is to apply this product, it also makes my skin look flawless and it lasts all day.

LOVE THIS PRODUCT- USE VERY LITTLE
from Calgary Alberta
I received this product in a showstopper a couple of months ago. The first time I used it I used too much and it did not look good. However, tapping the brush to remove excess prior to application it works as it should.Love the Bye Bye Under eye but it needs to be applied with a brush then tap with finger to blend. Again, a tiny, tiny amount goes a very long way.Followed by the Bye Bye Pores my "natural look" is complete. I just touch up with lipstick and blush going into the evening.My eye shadow stays on for the whole day as well. Used as instructed by Jamie this product really works great.

Experimenting Pays Off
By Style Maven

I'm 67 and had resisted using blush until I purchased this product. It blends the most brilliant colours of blush so that you enjoy a natural appearance. A real find!My regimen includes Elizabeth Grant products. Then I apply CC+ Full Coverage Cream before adding my blush which I follow with Celebration Foundation on my cheeks only. (I use face powder on my forehead and chin.) I've finally found the secret as to what works for me in creating a more youthful appearance. The reviewer who suggested that other customers may be using too much may have a good point.

So torn! Luminous but cakes eventually
I too purchased this in the SS kit but am reviewing just the foundation. I AM TORN!LOVE LOVE LOVE the luminosity of this powder. I wear "fair" and most foundations this light are very flat. This one is not! I am 50 and was taken for "30ish" while wearing this. Also it's very quick to apply and gives good coverage.UNFORTUNATELY this foundation gradually moves and cakes throughout the day. Will this be less or more of a problem in summer heat? Waiting to see. I also began breaking out a little more recently but I have no idea if this product is the cause.JAMIE, if there's any way you could recreate this product to retain the "illumination" but refine the texture, this product could be fantastic!As of now I can't quite decide whether or not to recommend.

For A Younger Demographic
By selective shopper
from northern ontario
I have tried this powder in numerous ways but despite various methods it always makes my mature but well maintained skin appear far older than when I use my P.M cc cream and/or P.M. mineral powder.. the few smallish pores on my chin look enormous with IT illumination powder. Even with the use of primers (tried several types) these pores are still magnified. Re: IT serum/primer no matter how long I wait for it to dry it still looks glossy and unnatural with or without makeup applied. Will use this IT powder only on my eyelids as a primer as it does not cause irritation of the eyes. Other than IT brow and eye shadow products I do not plan to buy any other items from this line of cosmetics. This product may work best on flawless/younger skin but I most definitely would not recommend for most women over 40. Return TSC shipping charges are too costly now, so I plan to use up remaining serum/primer on my hands and neck.
By DAISY MAY
I like previous reviews have more mature skin with larger pores and found the foundation unflattering. I do however love the bye bye under eye and eyebrow duo very much. So five stars for these but two for foundation. Also the primer is not yet rated as mine leaked out of the bottle so will ask for a replacement.
