Apparently it comes in a teeny pot but you only need a tiny bit and gets rave reviews, but wanted some opinions before I shell out £37! I'm quite fair, with the odd spot and apparently it's also,a great concealer. There's nowhere near me to try it unfortunately.

Well after much looking at swatches and humming and hawing, I took the plunge and it arrived today. I watched lots of YouTube videos beforehand, and applied it the way they recommended and just OMG. I have NEVER been so blown away by a product in my life, and I have a LOT of products. I sat on my bed, with my powder compact mirror, buffing away (you do need a decent buffing brush, mines a real techniques one), then went to the window to see the final result. It looks like I've been resting for a month, all my bad blemishes are covered but it somehow manages not to look like a mask!

It's got a dewy finish which I love- they advise you use a primer or moisturiser first, I used MAC Strobe cream, so that will have contributed a bit, but you could powder over it. All these videos saying tiny pot, you only need a teeny dab on a cotton bud- totally true. I went for sx02, as nowhere near me stocks it, space nk do, so I just went from bloggers swatches in the end, I'm fair with pink undertones and it's a perfect match. I'm absolutely delighted and would highly recommend it. Just in case anyone else was considering it, the photographed swatches on the bloggers arms seem to be more accurate by far than the colour charts, read what they say though because some have yellow/olive tones too. I got mine from club beauty for£36 then postage was £4 which is a bit of a rip off but I wasn't thinking.

Sounds interesting! Please could you link to one of the Youtube videos that shows applications/results that you liked?

Well it's difficult as they all showed different methods. They all agreed on the tiny amount, and using a primer to get some slip as its really thick, thrn dotting all over face and buffing in really well. It just varied on what they used, most advised a silicone primer, I'm going to try that tomorrow, but im still wearing it 8hours on, it still looks great and my skin hasn't dried out as usual. Will have a look through YouTube tomorrow and post some up.

Lisa Eldridge mentions it in her most recent video, as a concealer.
