I bought this in store as the colour is pretty good, if a little flat, but I find it incredibly difficult to apply. It makes my 46 year old skin appear more crêpey and dry than it actually is. Not flattering at all. I've found the trick is less is better, but then what's the point? To make it work at all for me, I have to use so little I may as well be bare skinned. Also, I get little white flakes coming off my skin as I try to blend it in, despite experimenting with different bases underneath (another £40), I can't seem to get this to work for me. You have to work really fast, it seems to dry out as you apply it. I won't ever buy this product again - and now I need to invest in a new foundation only a couple of weeks after wasting a lot of money on this one. Not impressed. I love other products in the range but this is awful!

Rated 5 out of 5 by TheMakeupReview Hands down best foundation!!
Hands down the best foundation Ive ever purchased! Love it, looks like your skin but better. My skin is alright already, i just have slight pigmentation in my cheeks , so I wouldn't recommend to anyone that needs huge coverage as it is quite light. However that said it is buildable. Blends easily, works best with a sponge or fingers. Couldn't use anything else now I've found this!!

Rated 4 out of 5 by Beachwalker Nice, hydrating and very natural looking
Tip: If you have pretty good skin already, go with this if you're trying to decide between this formula and the Cover Expert, which is a much heavier coverage.
I really like this foundation and I've been using it for a few years, now. I love that it stays put and adds a sheer glow without having any shimmer or glitter in it. It just looks like my own skin, but more even and bit more radiant.
You don't need very much....a pea sized amount is more than enough for an entire face, all over. If you only need to do the nose and cheek areas, this tube can last a good four or six months, even if you use it every single day, so it's not as pricey as it seems.
The only reason I didn't give it a full five stars is that it's pretty much a silicone bomb. It has SO much silicone in it that it is prone to rolling when layered over primers or when used with foundation brushes (I like to use my fingertips, anyway, but I know some people prefer brushes.)
I don't react to the silicone and my skin isn't oily, so I don't have a problem with it. But I reserve my 5 star reviews for universal products and I think if you have oilier skin or are very sensitive, this could be problematic for you.
Bottom line: Great, sheer coverage that evens out fair to good complexions. A little silicone heavy, so if you have oilier skin, you might find this too slippery by midday.
