Just OK. That describes this new product from The Body Shop. It claims that:
"Blemishes and imperfections are instantly covered
Lightweight formula gives shine-free complexion
Shades blend seamlessly into all skin tones for natural-looking coverage"

It does have a nice, lightweight forumula (consistency is close to runny) and it does provide natural …

I picked this up in the drugstore one day after a co-worker recommended it. At $6.00 it was an inexpensive experiment. And was I ever glad I did. I was very surprised at how well it performed. It's not a full coverage makeup, so I use a concealer with it, but it evens out my complexion and makes my skin look better than it does when I use my Clinique makeup. It even does a good job of …Read more

Crème - L'Oreal Paris - magic smooth souffle [DISCONTINUED]

I read some good reviews on this product, so I tried it. I really wanted to get the results those reviews talked about, but didn't. This foundation never really sank into my skin; it seemed like it floated on top all day, so I felt like my skin was greasy. Very unpleasant feeling. It turned any dry area on my face into flakes. And come on, L'Oreal - $15.00? For a drugstore makeup? …Read more

Wow, this product works amazingly well on my combination skin. I've been using it for two weeks now and it stands up very well even in humid Florida weather. It moisturizes well (you just need a small amount) and soaks in immediately, providing a great base for foundation. My skin remains hydrated but not oily all day. No breakouts or bad reactions. I am so pleased with this product!

I live in the sticks. The nearest Sephora is an hour away, so when an Ulta opened nearby recently, I thought I'd give it a try. I've been in the store three times now and they'd need to improve a number of things before I'd go back.

Pros: good selection of drugstore makeup lines, some premium lines. Good selection of haircare products. Good …

On sale at Target so I gave it a try. I first tried it using my fingers to apply - not a good choice. You have to work fast with this (it dries quickly) and it looked cakey. I used a brush the second time and it worked much better. Medium matte coverage; it didn't cover all imperfections (I found I need to use a pore minimizer under it), but applying moisturizer and primer and then …Read more

This is glorious! Tobacco, slightly sweet and spicy with amber, woods and somewhere in there slight hints of leather and patchouli. Great staying power, which is good, because you'll want to smell this for hours!
