Ok as a mixer-like it better as a shine control

I find it to time consuming to be missing this stuff with pigments. It is messy and takes the right amount to get the correct texture and consistency. If time doesn't matter to you-then get it. It is small and compact. Great for a makeup artist's kit.
I discovered I like it as shine "blotter" When I am working on a photoshoot and here is a little shine spot on a model's face-then I dab this on the spot-an bam-no more shine.

I can't figure it out either!
and I've googled! When I used with pigments, it made them blotchy and smeary. Good if you're wanting a glossy wet look for a magazine cover but not to wear through a 10 hour work day. I still can't figure out how you're suppose to use this product. :(

Mixing Medium shine
Tags +as a base for undereye concealer
I am thrilled with the unusual use I found for this product. I have very fine and dry skin and need quite an opaque concealer under the eyes to cover this. I find every concealer looks heavy and either looks cakey or just unnatural. I have used everything from Amazing cosmetics to a lot of the MAC and numerous others. I lightly tapped some Mixing Medium under my eyes with a finger and then applied concealer with a finger tip and I was amazed at the result! The product transformed my concealer and it appeared smooth and flawless. No moisturizer or eye cream has been able to give me this result.

Use on cheeks or brow bone for a soft, dewy glow, without shimmer or glitter. Mix with pigments for a "foiled" look on the eyes (if using a shimmery pigment), mix with pigments for a beautiful cheek color, and can be used to create beautiful lip colors. The possibilities are endless!
