This is by no means an unheard of product; but I thought I'd add my thoughts to a blogosphere already saturated with reviews of this foundation.
I purchased this on a whim; being too early for my train leaving Waterloo I found myself drawn to Boots and sucked in to the sales pitch I received at the teeny tiny Benefit counter there. I was uber excited to try as I'd heard great things and absolutely loved the packaging. I think it makes such a nice change from the kitsch Benefit style we're used to, it looks really fresh and modern, yet sleek at the same time.
Unfortunately, I don't love the product. Like? Yes, it's ok, but just not as amazing as I was led to believe.
I have dry skin, and whilst this doesn't exasperate it, it just doesn't seem to blend in as well as I'd hoped. My skin just doesn't look like me. The colour match seems good, so I'm not sure if this is oxidising slightly on my skin and leaving me looking a tad off after a few hours of wear. It's also not particularly long-lasting on my skin.
Onto the good points; the packaging is a given, a little goes a long way with this product and the pump allows you to dispense as little or as much as you please, minimising waste. I also like the way the white bottom of the bottle travels up as you use the foundation, meaning every last drop is utilised.
Like I said, not a review of a brand new product, but perhaps a point of view that hasn't really been expressed before and so may be useful to someone with a similar skin type looking to buy this foundation. I was expecting great things considering the 100% success-rate I'd read and wish I'd heard the other side of the story before I purchased.
