I tried these out s few months ago and fell in love. I have used the green one (for redness around my nose and chin) and the lavender (to brighten up my cheekbone area). They are soft and easy to apply and blend. The green goes a long way and I find I only need a little to get the results I want. Ii works well on general redness as well as light blemishes. The lavender brings some light to the dull skin around my cheekbones. I think this looks more appropriate on me than a highlighter (I am in my late 40's) and it does not seems to accentuate fine lines or pores. I think I like them best in conjunction with Smashbox foundation, but the foundation I use now seems to be alright with it. All in all I am happy with this and glad to see it on Birchbox!
