Like a lot of other reviewers, I was skeptical before I purchased this product due to the mixed reviews. I decided to give it a go anyway, and am so pleased that I did. I've struggled to find a decent foundation that doesn't look patchy, or cakey, and stays put throughout the day. I've tried high street brands and premium brands, brushes and sponges, but I think I have finally found my saviour! I'm really fair, so I ordered the SX1, with the thought that I could always make it darker if needed. The texture is very thick and creamy, so I mix a small amount with my slightly darker BB cream and it is perfect. It gives great coverage as both a foundation and concealer, and doesn't slide off my face halfway through the day (I'm quite lazy and don't like to keep touching it up all the time!). Don't be put off by the size of the pot, like others have said, you will only need a tiny amount so it will last for ages. Quick note, I tried it with a foundation brush and a damp Beauty Blender, and found the Beauty Blender was the best way to apply it, as it sheers it out more. Also, make sure you moisturise first!

I have a light Asian skin tone, with VERY dark undereye circles which is quite normal for people with my colouring I have looked far and wide for a good quality concealer. This is a concealer for people who are sick of hearing from others about concealers that provide great coverage when in reality just make your under eyes look grey and ashy.
Moisturise well, take a TINY drop, dot under your eyes, then dot an under-eye cream over the top - I use benefit its potent; then blend well with your finger keeping the skin taught as it will settle in the creases.
Only downside is that it will stick to dry patches so moisturizing well is essential.
The pot is small but used as a concealer will last you a good few years.

Wonderful product. Texture; brilliant - you can tailor make the coverage you require. Also the wide range of shades ensures there is something appropriate for each individual. My only criticism is that the online colours are not representative; I was looking for a replacement pot but unfortunately the shade indicator had disappeared from the base of my pot. (Another indication of the longevity of the product) However I contacted the Newcastle store where it was originally purchased and they were most helpful.
