Another thing I've bought after reading on here... It's fab! Also on offer atm.

I looked like data from Star Trek, nothing will make me gorgeous.

it's weird on me. had to use a lot of powder on top.. more than normal..which kinda defeated the object.. too shiny

I love it too and have given up my Laura Mercier tinted moisturiser in favour of it

I liked the texture of this on my skin but found the medium shade I bought a little too pale on my summer tan. I might try it again now my tan has faded a bit.
When I applied it it was over day cream (aldi lacura) and with a sweep of bronzer (benefit) on my cheeks. As I said I liked the texture - glowy but not shiny. It was just too light, and I'm naturally quite pale so that surprised me (I did have a bit of a tan though!)

This sounds like just the job as I love the Garnier one but the lightest one is now too orange now my tan has faded. I will look out for it (although hope it doesn't bring me out in spots!)

Lala everyone's skin is different so if you feel you need powder over it you should do that.

SlinkyB Mon 30-Sep-13 23:24:05

I bought the fair and it's too pale for me right now, hoping it will suit during winter months.

Was a bit reluctant to fork out for the medium aswell so would love to have yours to try please awks - sorry it brought you out in spots.

I found it too wet/shiny if I moisturised first but just right if I didn't. Am so used to tinted moisturisers, which always needed a moisturiser underneath confused

I put bronzer on my cheeks over the top if that helps ?

another happy customer here! i still need to use a tiny amount of cc cream on the red patches around my nose and will always need a separate moisturiser underneath but i love the feel of it and how it makes me look so glowy without looking sweaty smile thanks for the recommendation!

LalaDipsey Mon 30-Sep-13 21:12:32

I have bought it and think its ok but am confused as to whether you put powder on over the top or not! Does anyone know?!

Awks Mon 30-Sep-13 20:37:16

Well it brought me out in spots in the same way EL doublewear did. So if anyone wants 2/3 of a tube of medium then pm me and I'll post it

MsFiremanSam Mon 30-Sep-13 20:31:31

Also bought this after reading on here - love it! Thanks for the recommendation.

Really pleased with it too - bought it on Saturday so worn it for a couple of days.

Did you put another moisturiser on before you applied it Birdies? My face looked shiny at first but was fine after 10/15 mins.

Birdies Wed 25-Sep-13 13:42:16

My face was really shiny when I tried it. I loved the colour but it stayed feeling wet on my face for ages. Did I apply it wrongly?! Or is it more for dry skin?

Very kindly candle fire sent me hers and I have to agree it's very good , thank you thanks

happywithit Mon 23-Sep-13 18:20:30

i bought it is well after reading about it, really great, loved it, thank you so much.

stuffedcrusty Mon 23-Sep-13 18:00:50

Adding my thanks too as I bought it after seeing that recommendation. I have worn this every day since buying - love it more than my Laura Mercier!

wordassociationfootball Mon 23-Sep-13 14:10:32

I bought light and medium yesterday and love it. Glow without sparkles, much cheaper than Pixi or Laura Mercier which have both run out. Was going to try liz Earle and had samples but I like this more.

bishboschone Mon 23-Sep-13 11:26:13

Have done candle .. Thank you smile

Candlefire Mon 23-Sep-13 11:04:34

Pm me bish ?

bishboschone Mon 23-Sep-13 10:52:23

Candle fire I would love to try it please grin

SundaySimmons Mon 23-Sep-13 09:57:58

I've not seen it yet. I did try on a loreal one last week, it was bright orange!

Candlefire Mon 23-Sep-13 09:54:49

Got a full tube of "light" shade if anyone wants it....too pale on me. Annoying.

PAsSweetOrangeLurve Sun 22-Sep-13 21:41:03

I also bought it after reading about it on here - love it.
