I have deathly white skin, and I received 'pearl' in my birchbox, which was a little too dark for me. Luckily, I got it in the summer so it was fine--it's not super dark and once I blended it out it's fine, but I'm going to reorder the opal. I usually stick to matte creams because I don't want to look oily (I have combination skin), but I depend on a lot of shimmery contour to make me look like I have some kind of healthy color/glow. This doesn't look oily but actually gives an amazing glow, and I look way less washed out (I'm very pale and blonde naturally) without looking like I covered myself in glitter. I'm addicted! I think I'll stick to 'pearl' in the summer and 'opal' for the rest of the year.
Great way to wear sunscreen
I got a sample from my Birchbox and feel in love with it the first use. The tint is light and does not feel heavy on your skin. Plus it doesn't clog your pores!
like a lot!
This tinted moisturizer is very good indeed! it covered naturally and didn't make my face look too cakey or makeup-y. stayed put all day long and even after taking it off I noticed a difference (for the better) in my complexion!
Great liquid foundation
I purchased the full size after receiving the trial in a birch box. I liked how I could adjust the coverage based on my daily needs (1-2 layers). There is a definite 'luminating' effect without being shiny or glittery. SPF 20 is really important to my as well.
Great tinted moisterizer
I love that you can put on this cream and head out the door! If you want to skip the make up routine but still feel pretty...this is perfect.
