No, I'm not wearing makeup! Ok, at least it doesn't look like I am. This compact is with me at all times. There are few products that perfectly match my skin tone. My options are usually "porcelain" (I'm Irish, not dead) or "light", which goes too pinky (did I metion fair skin & red hair?). Also, not many brands give coverage but stil let me show off my beautiful freckles. This product comes like a pressed powder and goes on just as light as can be. After a 15 second application, however, my skin looks like I had it airbrushed! The only problem is that the brand, YourName Cosmetics, can be hard to find. I drive at least 30-45 min. to buy mine from the esthetician who got me hooked on it. And the includede SPF 15 helps keep the wrinkles at bay when I forget to apply another sunscreen :)
This godsend refines skin, evens skin tone and ACTUALLY MINIMIZES PORES! No joke. When I use this everyday (as I should) I see a dramatic improvement in my skin in about 2-3 weeks. Fine lines seem less scary, and overall pallor improves. My skin has more of a natural glow. Aveda claims "up to 35% increase in smoothness, 36% reduction in the appearance of pores, and 31% reduction in the appearance of lines and wrinkles". I didn't measure my pores or lines under a microscope, but I can honestly say that there is a noticable difference to my near-sighted eyes.
