I'm looking at the EE cream as I hate the feeling of foundation on my skin but like the my skin but better look.

Has anyone tried this one?

I bought it last year and it was just awful.

I love it, my favourite summer cover, feels like I'm not wearing anything but subtly covers imperfections and gives a glow. I have mature dry skin and don't have to add any moisture half way through the day.

They will give you a sample to try at the EL counter

I like it, it's great for pale skin. It offers fairly sheer coverage, but does cover imperfections. Perfect for summer.

I asked for a sample at our local independant estee lauder retailer. She looked at me as though I'd asked her to eat kangaroo testicles and said 'I don't think so. We don't just give it away', and walked off!

I asked for a sample today and was told 'we didn't get any' also they didn't have the light to test only medium and deep. I use more of a medium in a lot of products but have heard the EE cream medium is very orange and dark! Can't make up my mind which I should get

I find the medium perfect for me, not at all orange, I'm quite swarthy though but couldn't imagine needing the dark. Usually they have tiny tubes to offer - take a wee pot along and ask them for a squirt. The whole point of high end cosmetics is that you can try before you buy.

I haven't tried this one but I'm currently in love with bareMineral's Complexion Rescue. It is absolutely weightless, gives a lovely finish (esp if you use the brush) and suits my very pale skin.

It's okay, just a really light tinted moisturiser. I found it made my skin look quite oily during the day.

I like the BB cream better. Looks great all day!
