I kept seeing this popping up everywhere and I held out, I really did, for all of about a week and then I gave in and bought it.
There's two parts to this item: firstly the applicator which is a take on the powder puffs of old. It's circular, soft and has a ribbon on the back that you slide your fingers under to help hold it while applying product. The second part is the actual foundation. It's held in a sponge so when you press the applicator into it the product transfers across very evenly. Or, I'm guessing that's what they hoped anyway.
After initial application though, I love it. The glow, the skinlike texture, everything. Initially it's great. It just doesn't last long when using the applicator.
Using a different sponge though, it lasts a little bit longer.
If I was L'Oreal, I would ditch the applicator. I love the packaging up until I have to open the second part of it. It's a faff, it's sometimes difficult to hold or to put down whilst using and I don't really see the point.
Well, I do. But, it's not as effective as L'Oreal might have intended.
Overall as a foundation it's a good addition to the collection. It's affordable at under a tenner and with the right application it can be reasonably long lasting - though I reckon with a better primer than I have and with more effort put into a daily makeup routine it might last all day.
