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.
