The color is very nice and looks youth on the fair/light skin. The texture of the blush stick is very smooth, but it contains fine shimmers which I don’t personally like it and the volume of this product is not too little...Just a perfect natural blush on my light skin....Gucci is a Makeup Genius

Also go dark tone than you usually use. I have light to light-medium skin tone and had to use medium...Amazing!!!!!!! I have tan/olive skin and still use the 25-light palette.

I've been using this powder for a few months now, and I must say it's changed my makeup look. I love the smooth finish and how flawless my skin/face looks. ...Natural look and light weight...The product is pretty good, it feels light weight and blended well with my skin tone.

Light make up days...The powder made my face feel smooth, did not emphasize my pores and felt very light. It doesn't add coverage so I would reccomend to someone that is into light makeup, needs to control oil a bit....A decent powder for light contouring & oil control...The color that Influenster sent me isn’t really my skin tone so I have been using this super fine loose powder as a forehead contour.

Great base for dewy summer skin...I will preface this review by saying I am very into the dewy summer skin look right now. I mix this in with my Bobbi Brown BB cream in light every day, and not only does it sheer out the BB cream just enough, it adds such a lovely glow. ...The soft pink really brightens fair skin and the light reflection is just right for creating a lit-from-within glamorous glow!
