VIP Expert by Terry Light is a savvy foundation application brush that reveals a flawless complexion over the entire face.

This genius foundation brush sweeps away imperfections, dull skin, and shadows to reveal a flawless complexion with every stroke. For radiant touch ups, at any time of the day, even over makeup. Its featherweight texture, illusion-effect coverage, and multi-active skincare advantages win top honors with makeup artists.

With its new-generation, hydra-smoothing hyaluronic acid microspheres that blend into the skin tissues, this skin-plumper targets hollow areas (expression lines, crow’s feet, creases, etc.) and expands with water to recreate volume. The result: Wrinkles and fine lines are filled out and subjacent tissues are plumped up for an immediate lifting effect. The unrivalled soft-focus complex, composed of five specific corrective prisms, relaxes the features leaving no room for imperfections. This antiaging youth catalyst is also intensely protective as it’s composed of seven antiaging substances which defy time.

Reader Review: O-Glow or O-No?

Thanks to Candy from Dallas, TX for the review.

Title of your review: Smashbox O-Glow

Tell us about it!: After running out of my beloved Prescriptives Pressed
Powder Leaves in Rose I decided to move off my usual beaten path to
Smashbox. I had heard the buzz surrounding O-Glow, which promises to create
a shade of blush based on your own bodies chemistry as soon as it hits your
face. Here in lies the problem.

After consulting the sales girl, I took my purchase home and excitedly
opened my product. Yet here I wonder: Foundation first, then O-Glow or
O-Glow then Foundation? If I applied O-Glow first my foundation would all
but wash it out (and I wear very sheer foundation), and if applied over the
foundation it seemed rather muddy or false looking.

I also discovered that its very difficult to get even coverage on both
sides. I always felt like one side was more pink than the other, or more
intense.

At the end of the day, it was just too complicated for a step that normally
took me seconds as I run out the door. O-Glow for me was an O-No.

I can agree with Candy on this I was also puzzled at what point to apply O-Glow and I found the color faded really fast. My favorite cheek color lately has been Tarte’s cheek stain. It is super easy to apply and leaves you with the perfect flushed look.
