I know that Sali Hughes raved about it but anyone else rate it? It's 28 quid so a bit of an investment!

I really like it.Bought it last week and it has replaced my normal foundation.A couple of friends have said how good my skin looks.

I have it and am hugely disappointed with it.

It's very thick and difficult to blend in. Because it's thick, it seems to attach itself to every little hair on my face, so I then have to rub hard to get rid of it in these areas, e.g. above eyebrows.

About 30 minutes after application, it then starts pilling on my cheeks (i.e. rolling up into little dried balls of product).

Quite a few people online are complaining about the thickness / hair attraction problem, but more people are saying that the final result is nice and they're not having these problems.

Most of the department stores are giving free samples away still, may be worth getting colour matched and a 7 day sample before committing.

I do have to apply it on a very well moisturised face as it seems quite drying.

I got a week or so ago and have to say that I hate it. Its too thick and drying for my dry skin. Wasn't sure if I should go back in case it was just me.

I bought it yesterday and I am happy with it. I went to the JL counter in the morning to try it on, walked around town for a few hours and came back to buy it in the afternoon. It is oil free so you need your normal moisturizer underneath

Thanks all smile

I have it for about a week and really like it. I got a sample first and really liked it. I was surprised by how thick it was but as I was using double wear previously I quite liked this.

I was using it with my normal moisturiser but in the last few days I've been using samples of Clinique moisture surge as a moisturiser as it works great - glides on.

Really recommend getting a sample to try.
