I have been using the Cle De Peau Cream foundation in the tube and love it. However, I do need to touch up mid way through the work day. So I purchased the cream compact for that reason. For this option,you need to order the refill and case separately and then also purchase the sponge. Quite ridiculous for the absurdly high price.
Beyond the irritation of the packaging and multiple purchasing above, I could have been satisfied providing the makeup was as nice as the cream in the tube. Not the case. This compact cream is awful. It is thick and no matter how I played with it (fingers, brush beauty blender), I could not produce a natural looking finish. Even the same color number as my tube cream doesn't match.
I returned this and will pick up an extra tube of the cream to carry in my purse.
