I have always used MAC F&B and thought that I would like better coverage. I saw this and was very excited.
It didn’t start off well for me though. I was so disappointed. Bobbi Brown has such rave reviews that I bought this foundation. Firstly the customer service was awful. I booked an appointment for colour matching - as advised by the CS online. When I got to House of Fraser the SA's actually tutted that someone had to match me up. There were 5 free and one even rolled her eyes. very unwelcoming! I was colour matched to a colour 3 shades darker than me (by the girl that tutted). When I went outside (after I bought it) I realised how horrendously orange it was so took it immediately back for a refund and pretty much had to fight for this. Always go outside as House of Frasers lighting is such that you think you look good till you get outside!
I am a MAC NC30 and was matched to Honey. .
I went back a few weeks later to try again and was matched to a similar colour. Natural Tan. It does look a little orange as the day goes on but more importantly it slides straight off. I have dry skin and I find after a few hours this foundation gets itchy on me. I think its the lavender - a strange ingredient for foundation! It doesn’t stay put well. You can see all my pores and lines and also shadows.
I wouldn’t recommend this or ever buy it again.
Unfortunately, the search for my HG foundation continues.
