I started using this stuff last winter. I had treated myself to BareMinerals with some birthday cash. It only lasted about a month. Well, being broke, I searched for a drugstore brand. I'm never impressed with Maybelline, so I avoided that. CG didn't have a mineral powder foundation... SO I went for this. It's really, pretty good. I have REALLY pale skin and I have had acne as far back as I can remember, so I usually have red marks. Using JUST this, you won't get much coverage. It really works wonderfully if you use the foundation AND the finishing powder. I found that the same issue I had with BareMinerals, I had with this. Unless your skin is perfectly moisturized, you might see some settling and a powdery look. But, a good moisturizer will help. I wore this makeup ALL summer. Even against the nasty CT summer humidity, it held up for a majority of the day. The price is reasonable. I reccomend this stuff, but definitely moisturize (which you should do anwyay!) and use the finishing powder. FYI... The concealer from this line is BEAUTIFUL.

I actually REALLY like these! I picked up the funky, multi-colored flower package. I first only put them on my thumbs and painted the other eight fingers, just to see how I liked it. Well, after a week, they were still on! So I had an event to go to, and I did not have the patience to deal with polish. So I did all 10 fingers, after a week, they still looked great! I've seen the reviews here are mixed, but I'm totally happy. That MIGHT be because I used a hard top coat on top of the strips. I tend to pick off any manicure, so the hard coat really kept my nails looking nice, and kept them from chipping! Pros: -Long lasting IF you use a top coat!!! -Funky, unique Cons: -NOT quite as quick as you'd expect. I think a manicure with polish takes as long, there is just no dry time with these -NOT quite as easy to put on. I have little fingers, so basically all of the decals were a little big -The wood stick they give you in the package SUCKS, I used a metal cuticle pusher to push the decals down and smooth them out I'd buy these again for sure!
