I got this because I was looking for a cheapo makeup base to finish off this powder and this powder with. (It would be a waste to use my favorite almost-empty Hydro Splash, or buy something more expensive - like maybe a new Hydro Splash or the Laura Mercier TM I've got my eye on
Location Bought: Mercury Drug Shangri-La
Approximate Date Bought: December 2010
Packaging: It's slim, it's simple, it doesn't leak. Nothing fancy, but it works, so I like it. (Especially the not leaking part.)
Color and Pigmentation: Ivory seemed like it would be too yellow on me so I got Beige, the pinker one of the two variants available.

|The blended product. I think it matches with my skin fine.|
In Action: I've found that the shimmers, hidden beneath a layer of powder, are least noticeable in natural light and most noticeable under incandescent light. (Incoming face spam!)
|Natural light. Shimmers, what shimmers?|
The powder I used was ELF's 2-way powder.
On my lips is The Face Shop's Rouge Ex Gloss.
|Incandescent light. Notice the shimmers showing up|
under my eye, near my nose, and near my mouth.
|Fluorescent light. Invisible in photos. Not noticeable |
in person unless you're REALLY close.
|I've hit pan on both thanks to this TM yay!|
It makes the ELF one feel lighter in this summer heat,
and it balances out the Etude one's color, which can get
too white for me if I'm not careful applying.
