I really love this....BUT...

4 out of 5

I love this product. Within 3 days I noticed my skin tone was more even and the broken capillaries in my cheeks were much less noticeable. BUT...when I attempt to follow with my moisturizer and/or primer, the brightening cream begins to "gum up" or harden into small clumps. It is impossible to apply my BE foundation when this happens and I have to wash it off and reapply and then skip the moisturizer and primer. I am not sure what to do about this. At this time I am skipping the last 2 steps (that is how well the brightener works).
I will continue to try different combinations to see if I can find one that works. My next attempt will be to apply the moisturizer, followed by the brightener and then the primer.
Wish me Luck!

Phrases Chosen: best ever
I lost my eyebrows due to a medical condition. This product is the only thing that allows even a semblance of a natural brow look. I get so many compliments. The brow pencils are ok for fill in but when you have to literally apply your eyebrows every morning the brow powder is it. If you have any product left in Brunette. I will take it all. I am so upset, I can't imagine what I will do when mine runs out.

Phrases Chosen: disappointing
Based on the reviews, I had such high expectations for this product. I have suffered with mild/medium rosacea for the last 30 years. i was so disappointed after using the product. Not only did I get no coverage for the redness, I actually started to break out wherever i had applied the product. I do not have sensitive skin and was very surprised when this occurred. I hope the product works better for other people.

Questions
 
Why does the brightener "gum up"/harden into clumps when I apply my moisturizer and/or primer afterwards?
I love the brightener but if I apply anything over it, it gums up into smalls globs of "stuff" and I am unable to apply my BE foundation. I have waited 20-30 minutes in-between product applications and have yet to figure out the right combinations. I have also used next to nothing of the product which I don't like because my face feels tight afterwards.

Do you have any suggestions?

Why are you discontinuing the Brunette brow color?
I am devastated. I lost my eyebrows due to a medical condition. I have to apply my entire eyebrow for both eyes every morning. The pencils are such a fake look. This is the only product that provides a semblance of a natural look. Is there a way for me to buy any remaining product? I am so upset!

Good for hiding redness from crying at my wedding?
I know I'm going to cry on my wedding day and I want to hide the splotchy redness I get on my face when I cry. Would this product be good for that?
definitely not. It has a very yellow tint and coverage is very light.
