I bought this foundation as I have seen Lisa Eldridge using it in a few makeovers on her blog.
I generally buy and use high-end foundations, I am an exigent customer, have combo skin with a nasty t-zone, therefore I need a long lasting foundation.
I was a bit surprised to see it using by Lisa, but I said, if this is good enough for Lisa, it must be allright for me as well!
Well, Lisa was right: This is a very good long-lasting foundation, well not the 25 hours the claim, but it is allright for lasting the whole 12hrs when your're out all day. I bought shade 200 (i'm a NC 15-20 in winter) and it's OK, but not perfect ... the shade selection could be better (200 is a beige, neutral shade, I wish it was more yellowish!).
I like the coverage (=full) , and is it easy to apply and spread. The finish is not 100% matte - has a serum added therefore it is not superdrying, but believe me, it works.
What refrains me from giving a full 5 stars is the packaging. I find it quite ugly with that cheap plastic red cap and the glass bottle is not bathroom-friendly (i refer to the bathrooom tiled floor, and the high chances of smashing the glass bottle onto it...).
Other than that... well ....A great foundation at a bargain price !
