This stuff smells horrible! I was so excited to smell it at the Chanel counter, I wanted to gag. The only reason I ever wanted to smell it was because Marilyn Monroe wore it. I wish she could have picked something better because I definitely don't see anyone under 50 wearing this. The smell is so strong....it reminds me of those old ladies who over do it in church. I don't care that this is a "classic" it smells cheap and awful.
I'm going to get to the point with this one, this shampoo totally dried out my hair! This may sound silly, but my suave professionals for curly and wavy hair works way better and I will be switching back immediately! Don't even bother because there is nothing "moisturizing" about this product.
I am so happy that I have found my summer foundation! If you are super oily like me and live in a humid area...especially with those melting hot summers then this is an awesome foundation for you! I am not saying that you will not ever get oily when wearing this foundation, but it will work well with humidity and oily skin. I was a little hesitant in trying the foundation because it seems to me that other Clinique foundations I've tried in the past looked pink on me and that just was not cute at all! I went to the Clinique counter and was color matched in the color sand. This was the first time ever for me, that I was perfectly matched for a foundation!!! I immediately went out side with the foundation and it was totally a natural look! I have yellow undertones and this is just a dead on match for me! The finish is matte but looks natural. If you are hesitant like I was just get a sample first and I hope that it works out for you like it did for me! I also like that there is no spf beacause I honestly don't like spf in my foundations for the sake of taking pictures, so that's another bonus for me!
This used to be my favorite foundation, but it really leaves my skin looking dull. I would say the coverage is what it says "medium" I could still see my acne scars through this as well. My shade was beige 402 which is great with my yellow undertones. This isn't an awful foundation, it just wasn't for me. The finish was just too dull and flat and just looked mask like to me. One great thing is that it never broke me out.:-)
I used this foundation all throughout the summer of last year. When I look back at my vacation pics in Florida it made my face a little too dewy....just too shinny. I also have very oily/acne prone skin but this foundation did not break me out, but it did make me have a greasy face by the end of the day....yuck! The shimmer in it was not very appealing either, although I never saw it in pics, I definitely noticed it otherwise. I don't understand why they put shimmer in this foundation.Some people would ask me why my face was so shimmery or if I was hot because of how shinny it made my face (so embarrassing!)so I stopped using it. I don't think this was horrible but just not the right foundation for me since I have very oily skin. Also if you have acne scarring or any kind of scarring, this does not cover them at all! This foundation would be good for those who have no skin issues or scarring.My shade was in caramel. I ended up tossing this one into the trash can. If your skin is very oily like mine you will want to avoid this foundation for sure especially in the summer time because trust me it will look and feel icky on your face for sure! The only plus was the pump.

All I can say is where has this amazing foundation been all this time!!! I am really loving this foundation. It gives off a nice satin finish/matte-but not flat. I am 26 years old with very oily skin with occasional breakouts. Unfortunately my target does not have testers for this foundation so I literally had to take it out of the box and pull a quick swatch test ( I know...I feel bad for doing that but I wanted to get the right match!) I ended up testing the Almond-which was a little too light....so walnut was the winner. Just for reference, the shade Walnut is great for those with really olive tanned skin and Almond seems to be more for those with a slight tan. I will be using this for as long as I can and I hope that they never discontinue this foundation! The packaging is very nice as well and looks high end! I apply this with a stippling brush...works great! Give it a try!
This product is a fail and I really don't see why people like this product. It does not even clean my face like it should. I thought this would have been a good product for removing makeup but it's not. I'm just very disappointed in this product and would never recommend, what a waste.

I have finally figured out now why I'm I was getting the cystic breakouts! It's because of this product! For the longest time I thought it was hormonal but I began to think back on where it all began and it was this product, so for a whole year I suffered and then took this out of my facial routine and now my skin is back to normal!!!! I used to never use moisturizer (I know better now) but when I didn't my skin was fine. Now I just need to find a good spf free moisturizer. It's the spf that was breaking me out! Also this stuff makes my skin look and feel greasy...yuck!
This really did help get rid of my acne but i had to stop using it on the 3rd day because it made my face turn red and very dry. I stopped wearing foundation for a week and that was very embarrassing for me but I found that when I wore foundation with this no matter how much I moisturized it looked splotchy and just so gross because this had dried out my skin in those 3 days that I used it so I had to just suck it up and let my skin heal.This was just a little too harsh for my face.
This foundation was not for me. I was so excited to try this but was let down. This foundation feels very heavy and looks really fake and mask like on skin. I know that I need coverage for my acne scars and all but I felt like I looked so fake. I went to every department store in the mall and none of the sales women could match me up with the right color, everything they would match me with made me look ghostly,pink,red...hopeless.... and I have an olive tanned complexion! The closest shade one of the sales associates matched me was in the shade soft tan....and it still made me look like a freak...so really not even close! This foundation in my opinion is not for people with yellow under tones like myself. Oh and you know what really got me was when a few of the sales associates were like "oh this does photography beautifully!".....Yeah right! I looked like I had a white cast on my face in pictures! If you want an unnatural mask like look go ahead and try this one and good luck finding the right match!

This foundation was not for me, the color match was perfect, however I have acne scaring and this did nothing for them. I have very oily skin and within an hour I swear my face looked like an oil slick and this was even with primer. My face ended up breaking out. I really believe that Bobbi's foundations are for people that only need to even out their skin tone or have really good skin. I felt like with this foundation I may as well have not been wearing any because that is exactly what it looked like and that is fine for those without problematic skin, but not for someone like me who needs coverage.

I really wanted to love this foundation! My shade is Bisque 8 warm. I love how smooth it makes my skin look and the finish is nice and matte. I have an olive complexion with some acne scars so I do have to use a little concealer with this foundation. I love that there is no smell and it has not broken me out.BUT..the only thing is at first it looks good for a few hours on me but then comes the orange oompa loompa face! Yeah I have tried many different samples and shades in this foundation and I have noticed that all the warm shades have an orange tint to them. I would not recommend this foundation for those like me with yellow undertones and I tried out 3 different department stores and every sales associate kept matching me in bisque 8 warm which does look good at first but then later looks orange!!! I'm so frustrated right now! My only complaint is the shade match otherwise would be great!

I thought this would be a great foundation, but it broke me out really bad! I tried it out for about a month but ended up just throwing it away. This foundation offers no coverage at all and was very thin and watery. I think that this foundation would work for those with blemish free skin. This foundation has a perfume scent and I did not like that since I have sensitive skin. The finish is dewy which is not good for me since I get very oily.
I returned this and I was disappointed with this compact. The compact itself is very nice, however the eyeshadows have poor pigmentation, the only pigmented shadow was the dark brown the rest was like chalk. The blush was ok...nothing special. I returned it and got my money back!

Horrible!!! There is nothing natural about this product. I have very sensitive skin and this just does not work for me. The smell is no where near natural...you know what it reminds me of??? HAND SOAP!!! As far as washing off my makeup with this....ummm no thanks! This also caused me to break out! You would be better off using this as hand soap! Don't waste your time or money on this stuff.
