  1. Ooo… I want Love Rock too… I think Moon River might be too light for me :( Really itching to see them in person! I’m flying back to Chicago this Wednesday so I’ll be able to check them out on Thursday… hope they don’t sell out that fast…

  2. Thanks a lot Phyllis for swatches !!
    I love Earth to Earth and Light Over Dark and I would like to know if I can use them like bronzer on my cheeks (because I’m a NC42-44) ?
    Love Rock is a really beautiful pink <.3

  3. Karen,

    Moon River is light but it will still work for you (hey it worked for me!) Just save the marbelized part for the top of your cheekbones as highlight.

  4. Pinklye,

    Compared to some of the MSF, these blush duos aren’t really that dark. Earth to Earth and Light Over Dark will definitely work on your skintone but I doubt they would be dark enough to be used as a bronzer (I go with at least a shade and sometimes up to two darker when I pick out bronzers).
