Nothing special. It leaves a white powder, even after brushing off. I prefer Lee Stratford Poker Dry spray, for the quality and for the smell. If you've tried Lee Stratford you'll not get back to Batiste.
A great example of great value for money!!Bought this product recently after reading the reviews on this site and it really works. Every morning I put this concealer on under my liquid foundation (Clinique, perfectly real make up). And although the foundation is not the best, this product really works with it. Two minuses: 1. the applicator, still not sure how to use this brush to create a better effect...so I mostly end up putting it on with my fingers; 2. Not a lot of choice in color -at least in Europe- there are only 2 colours, light and sand..too bad But overall, this one is way cheaper but does his work way better than expensive concealers!!
Colour 327, Bed of blue roses. Its violet and its beautiful.Stays on through the whole evening and night. Just the brush didnt last long.
I have No. 64, Pink Explosion, bought in Europe for 36 Euro. Love the smellof roses, hate the brush. I thought Chanel has to have some kind of standard, well apparently not. The hair is coming out of the brush,already from the first time I used this product. Nevertheless the colour fits perfectly. I always blow the first layer off the brush, which makes it look more natural. Expensive but worth it.
Bought this product in Australia, dont even know if you can buy it in Europe. I like the smell. I use it when I go to work and my fringe is just hanging in front of my eyes. With this product I can put my fringe to the side and it lasts through the whole day at work.There are some glitters inside, but I don't really see them on my hair.Its not sticky, doesn't make my hair greasy, doesn''t weight it down.As far as I remember it was reasonably prised as well.

Great foundation, great value for money. I bought this foundation 2 years ago and have been re-purchasing it until now. Just, there is something with the colours. I use Ivory, but sometimes I get comments from people that I look pale.I think I will try a darker colour next time. It takes a while before you discover which coulour suits you best. I agree, the colour which is in the bottle is not the colour on your face.

The coverage is just a-m-a-z-i-n-g!!I used it when I had a skin allergy and it covered it all!!The colours are a bit weird though.Ivory is way too light for my Eastern European skin tone. Compared to the expensive brands this one does a way better job for less money.Definately worth trying!!!!

Smell-Yes, lasting power-no. It's fruity, fresh and sexy..like 10000 of other fragrances..but it lasts for 1 hour max. I spray it on 3 times a day...is that normal?
Dont even try to look in the mirror at the end of your working day!!!Definately not smudge proof and sticky for beginning to end..No, no and no
Well, because I had some kind of nasty allergy I had to use 'heavy' foundation, like Estee Lauder 'Maximum Cover' and La Roche-Posay 'Toleraine'. After a few months Im happy to go back using my favorite foundation 'Perfectly Real'. Its light, spreads out evenly, covers minor redness. Does not leave smudged edges on the side of the cheeks and neck, so quick applying and re-applying withour having the most perfect light still gives great effects.
