This is a good quality powder blush with a fairly creamy consistency. This means little to no powder kick up, but a synthetic brush can still easily pick up product. I am still fairly light at the moment (I range from about NC20 to NC40 depending on the time of year), and this is a VERY subtle blush (and I prefer subtle bush, but this is almost too subtle for me). I can't imagine anyone deeper than me getting this to show up (it is a common theme that PF products don't cater to medium-tan - deep skin). I find PF overpriced for drugstore and the packaging is usually quite bulky - in this case, that means plastic compact with a nice mirror and a compartment with a weird sponge applicator that is useless. There is also a strong sweet coconut/suntan lotion smell; it's not the type of scent that gives me a headache, but you can smell it from the box before you open it, and it lingered on my skin for about 2.5 hours. This blush will be good for a limited range of people (fair - light-medium skin), and it performs well for that range, but for a natural drugstore blush, I would recommend the Essence Satin Touch blushes, which are also much cheaper ($2.99!).

This is a gorgeous product that I love for all-over-the-lid. It can be applied with fingers or brushes. It blends well, doesn't crease, and stays all day. This color in particular is great for a one-and-done shade or as a base. However, this is almost an exact dupe for ELF Smudge Pot in Cruisin' Chic (which is my everyday go-to). I bought this because of the hype, and they are really indistinguishable from less than a foot away. If you look in macro, the TF has some subtle silver sparkle, while the ELF has a subtle gold shimmer, but their base and overall look are exact. Love both, but for the price when they are equal quality, the ELF has to beat it!

The formula of this is really soft and buttery, and it applies nicely with a brush. However, it is just too light for me to use as a highlighter with my medium skintone. I am currently using it as a browbone highlight, since I don't like a shimmer or frost there - I will never run out! I've also seen others use this as an underage setting powder for concealer, and I find it horrendous for that purpose. With a brush, it emphasizes pores I didn't even know I had there, and with a damp Beauty Blender, it looks cakey and powdery. I do think this is a good quality product for fair - light skintones, but if you are deeper, it might not work.
