This reminds me of elderly ladies with purple hair. Extremely over-powering, and not feminine at all. Not for me.

I have never liked Clinique foundations, but this is the exception. Although I don't think it really makes a massive difference if you have problem skin, it covers problem skin really well. Most Clinique foundations have a light or sheer cover, but this one covers well, and the finish is matt and flawless. The staying power is not great though. The biggest thing for me is the finish though, very natural and pretty.
I rarely write reviews, but just had to write one for this product. I am an absolute foundation junkie. My favourite is Estee Lauder Double Wear, but to my great surprise, Bourjois 123 Perfect manages to give DW a good run for it's money. I have used Healthy Mix original, but I'm surprised that it gets better reviews that 123 Perfect, since it's staying power does not come close to this. Like Health Mix, the smell is divine, but the cover is definitely heavier (I need it) and the staying power is excellent. I've been using this for a week now, and have had no break outs or awful mid day shine. It would definitely need a touch up if you're going out after work, but at this price (R175.00 in South Africa) I'm willing to make the sacrifice. I will definitely be re-purchasing.
I am pleasantly surprised at this product. I've never been a fan of MAC foundations (although I love their other products) but Pro Longwear is fantastic. I was convinced that I would need a NC, but the sales assistant wanted to try NW20 on me. It's a pretty good match, much better than I've even had with any other MAC foundation. It's very natural looking, but buildable enough to cover blemishes. It's been 9 hours, and it's still looking good. A slight bit of shine, but I generally don't use powder over my foundation. I'm from South Africa, and this product is expensive here. It retails for R300.00. It's still worth it though, considering that Estee Lauder Double Wear retails for R380.00. And I prefer this foundation to Double Wear, since Double Wear feels heavy on your skin. Sorry guys, but three days down the line, and this product has given me a pretty bad breakout that resembles a rash. Will not be re-purchasing again.
