    The powder felt a little heavy, with the bb cream. I got the fair/ medium tone and it was a little Orange for my light skin tone. Over all I liked the make up other then the color and little bit of a heavy feeling.

        The foundation is too light weight on the brush and the face. My imperfections are few and the foundation does not cover completely.

          I purchased the fair and it was too dark for my skin tone. The BB was great and the foundation primer was great too. Just the powder was way too dark and did not wear well on me.

                This was my first endeavor into more expensive, name brand makeup. To be honest I wasn't impressed when compared to my normal everyday $6 BB cream. Not sure why these brands are so much more expensive if they aren't a significantly better product??

                    A:

                    BB Cream features a hydrating formula, so many do use it as their moisturizer! It can also be layered over additional moisturizer if needed. The order of application would be: Photo Finish Foundation Primer, BB Cream, Halo Hydrating Perfecting Powder.

                  I would like to buy this and try it out after reading all the great reviews! I would like to know since I have pinkish undertones, would you recommend I use fair or light? I'm thinking fair has more pink undertones while light probably has yellow? Thank you!

                    PERFECTS: Tinted formula evens out skin for a flawless finish..

                    PROTECTS: SPF 35 guards against UVA/UVB rays.
                    CONTROLS OIL: Minimizes shine with no chalky finish.
