    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Incredible use for contour! Not only is this incredible to find your 'MR right' shade, but you can also use it to contour and it is AMAZING! I have always wanted to find things that can be used and are nice and quick. After putting your fresh nude foundation on all you need to do is dot the end of the dripper on and blend! It starts looking a little scary but it blends incredibly. Top with you all in one face base powder and there you have it. Incredibly natural, flawless looking contour! If you prefer a more fierce contour as well, just add some honey bronze powder

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Life Saver! These nifty drops are a life saver if you've got a skin tone that is hard to match foundation for! I love my skin tone but find that finding a foundation with right kind of warm undertone that does not leave an ashy veil is hard. These drops ensure I can use my perfect foundation formula even if the color is not a perfect match! These drops also come handy when you want to bust out that ultra lux sachet of foundation sampler that you had stored away because the color was not even close to your skin tone! Couldn't recommend these enough! Lesser known fact: they make great liquid contouring and highlighting tools also!

    Rated 1 out of 5 by from Doesn't do anything I bought the lighter shade adjusting drops hoping it'd allow me to use up all my foundations that don't quite match my skin tone. It didn't adjust the shade at all and actually stopped the foundation from sitting well on my skin. I noticed that it reduced the coverage of the foundation and it seemed to just move around my skin rather than sitting nicely. I have tried it with multiple foundations (all different brands) and have experienced this with all of them. I also gave it to a friend who was keen to try it and it just reduced the foundations coverage for her, without making the shade lighter.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Versatile! I've had this for a few weeks now and it has been a godsend for my foundation that is a shade too dark and too yellow to suit me. Mixes perfectly with my current foundation, does not compromise texture or longevity and tones down the yellow pigments. I highly recommend this to anyone and will definitely be purchasing more!!

    Rated 2 out of 5 by from Doesn't blend well and feels very oily/greasy Bought this a couple of days ago and it just doesn't work for me. It doesn't blend in very well and it leaves me feeling as if I have a layer of cooking oil on my face. Hoping I just got a bad batch as I was extremely hopeful for this product.

    Rated 3 out of 5 by from Works great the product itself is amazing and works great, however the dropper is useless and it should come with a pump because you end up with either not enough product or too much that gets wasted

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Miracle Worker I've been only using the product for a couple of days and I'm in love. Saying that about a cosmetics product is something I was never able to say before. As a very pale girl I have always found all of the foundation to dark especially after they have oxidized. People would always see that I was wearing make up as my face was orange and my body very pale and I would often get mean comments even from friends about it everyday. High end foundations like Mac weren't able to even do the job, I am now lucky enough to final have a foundation of my dreams every time thanks to this serum. If you are pale I would defiantly recommend this product to and also if you might have a foundation that you love but it doesn't give you enough coverage as this lightening serum will most certain improve the coverage by far and could potentially be a great too do contouring with. :)

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Lightens a dark CC cream to perfection! Hi, I am so glad to have bought this, even better on sale! Today was the first time I tried it on, but it was perfect! I only use a small drop of the Shade Adjusting cream (Light) with my Physicians Formula Organic Wear CC Cream (Light/Medium), and the colour worked wonders! The previous overly-yellow CC cream turned into a perfect tone, and matched my complexion wonderfully! Thanks so much for this wonderful creation =)
