If you think this make up base looks familiar, then you are partially correct because I have reviewed the white version earlier on. But the one I have here is blue, so it deserves a whole new page to itself! As a side note, I believe that Catalina Geo and I-Miix are the same entity - they changed up their names as a marketing strategy.

The pearl blue shade adds radiance to fair skin, and reduces minor imperfections. You don't need to dip your face in a vat of this stuff; a pump is plenty enough. You wouldn't want to turn into a smurf, right? Haha! Jokes aside, the effect is subtle but it imparts enough impact that it would be wise to bring it down to the neck.

I would like to reiterate that dabbing vigorously is a must with this product. My friend sweeping away bits of crushed pearls stuck to my face is not a memory I like to relieve often *hangs head in shame* For those interested, my previous review is just a click away for a deeper understanding of the formulation, texture and longevity.
