I have the med. kit, the one sahde is perfect, nice beige shade, the other is a little more tawny, just slightly too orange for me, may look better in summer.

I keep looking at the models in the demos and it looks heavy to me and the colors look unnatural. Maybe it's my TV.

I would love to try this but am on the fence. I LOVE his skin care from his last TTV. LOVE IT!

Stay on the fence. I ordered this tsv months ago for the first time and I really did like it at first, but now I won't use it anymore because it does look cakey on the face. Even if i put a little on, it still looks cakey. I'm not impressed with this foundation at all. I also have that clear finishing powder thing he has and I don't see any difference in my face after using that product.

Don't waste your money. You're better off sitting on the fence forever for this one.

Thanks, BlingQueen, that helps me a lot.

Dimitri is so good at selling, but I just don't think this is going to work for me.

A deal is only a deal if it's going to work!

Also got this a few months ago on A/D w/ the concealor and even got 2 shades...light and medium. That was 4 foundation colors to choose from, and it was a no go for me too. Sent it all back...did not look natural at all!! Even ordered the brush D said we HAD to get!!! The brush came apart at the handle the 1st time used!!! It might work for someone who has excellent skin to begin w/, but I do not.

I was even considering doing that, even though I don't even like how it looks on the models.

I won't be doing that!!

Dimitri can talk all day long how great it is, I'm not buying.

Love Plasma. It's the best foundation on the planet for me, and I have tried everything from dimestore to Bergdorf's top lines, from $5 to $300. The key is that a little goes a long way AND you must buff, buff, buff. There was a learning curve. I look airbrushed and my skin is smooth as silk to the touch, which means blush & bronzer goes on totally smooth, not catching in pores or powders underneath. Get the right color (I mix 2). I can't link here but @ the Skinn website click on Plasma & there are 6 models photographed representing each color. I use the darker in the Light kit and the lighter in the Medium kit. I don't use the Plasma concealer because it is too sheer, which is the hallmark of Plasma---sheer & airbrushed. If you looked caked, that's user error.

BTW I have had 2 of the Plasma brushes for over a year & they haven't broken or shed fibers, despite regular cleaning. They look the same as the day I received them. Not sure how people are breaking their brushes. {#emotions_dlg.confused1}

Plasma is new & different & just may not be for everyone. You can always make your own decision & try it for a month & send it back if not acceptable or too hard for you.

I have been using this for about 1 year-since it was introduced. I wear medium but only the lighter of the 2 shades. I also use Koh Gen Doh foundation @ $62.00 a bottle. This gives more of a slightly matte finish-it does look airbrushed and stays well. I prefer this to Chanel and Dior anyday-feels much lighter on the skin-less masky. I also like the skincare line, but am using La Mer as well.

I wear medium BE and have the light..wearing the darker of the two. If you use a super-light application, it is very nice. I like that it serves as a primer and foundation.

I'm watching again and still think the models look cakey and unnatural.

If Dimitri isn't applying it correctly then who is?

Well, now I see it on a girl I assume is in the medium and it looks good.

The girl in the light didn't look so good.

Oy, now I might be interested again.

I have the Plasma in Light. I would guess you'd want to go with the honey tan or whichever medium tone they have. I really like this foundation. Have had no problems with the brush and love the finish of the Plasma. And I'm really picky with the finish of foundations.
