I only got this today so my opinion could change. First of all I had excellent CS from the SA who spent ages trying to get me the right match. I got number 4 which was quite neutral and fair. We tried another one which matched well but made me look drained! This matches perfectly with no tidelines visible.

I had quite clear skin and my main issue with foundation is finding something that will even out little red patches. This was just enough with no need for concealer. The foundation looks lovely and fresh on. It is brightening without looking horribly shimmery or glittery. It was applied over a primer, so I will be interested to see how it works without a primer.

Update: The brush is fine. Infact I am really liking it. It's not wonderful around my nose but it is not a disaster either.

Longevity: It lasts well though does not have the longevity of Revlon Colourstay, for example. However, this can be topped up without going cakey or orange in the evenings.

I'm having no bother not using a primer. Another reviewer has said that this is better with a primer. It probably is but my face is cleansed, toned and moisturised and I have no problems with it.

So far, the foundation has lasted well without going into melt down - as with the Lancome Miracle Touche. I like how light this feels on my skin. It is very comfortable. No need for powder either.

Time will tell if this is my HG foundation. I have two issues against it. I have never spent as much on foundation - £32 - but you do get more product for your money (40ml). My second concern is the brush applicator. I have had highlighters before where the brush applicator became a bit of a mess and spoilt an otherwise good product. We shall see. Watch this space!

I was planning to buy this foundation and, just to make sure I wasn't about to waste my money, I decided to try a sample. Thank God I did it! Fond de Teint Pinceau Eclat didn't completely work for me as it made my pores look hugeeeeeeee. How disappointing!! I hate to burst anyone's bubble here, but I canít recommend this product at all.

Pros: Matched my skin tone flawlessly, pleasant scent. Cons: The applicator brush is useless around nose and eyes, and it's almost impossible to get the correct amount out of the tube. This causes a lot of waste, which is a shame in a foundation that costs $50. Also, it takes a little longer than it should to dry, and has very short staying power. However, when it's on, it does look beautiful and radiant.
