As you can see i got matched up with the colour 'Fresco' which is a tan shade with creamy undertones and in my opinion slightly to dark for me, its only bang on when I'm more tanned in the summer month's. The foundation comes in a frosted glass bottle with a screw up lid, personally I'm not a fan of the packaging as it comes without a pump so i find myself always pouring out too much product which leads to wastage or its just generally messy if you try and scrape the foundation back into the bottle. The consistency of this foundation is like a thick cream so is quite hard to smooth and blend across your skin with your fingers so id always recommend using a buffing brush to get that smooth, even finish. Id also say to work quickly whilst buffing this into the skin as it sets mega fast and you don't have much time to work with it all.
The finish of this foundation on me is a very matte full coverage and covers up any in perfections, spots and blemishes, i didn't find it heavy or cakey on the skin nore did it sink into any creases, the one thing i did notice is if you have any dry patches of skin it does cling to them so id say use a good moisturiser first. The lasting power of this foundation is amazing, it lasted all day without a single touch up and didn't slide at all.
The foundation provides an SPF of 10 which is great for the protection of your skin but awful for photo's, be warned girls if you have your photo taken with the flash on this foundation gives a awful white cast and makes you look ghostly.
The Price: I paid £26.50 for mine but i think it all depends where you buy it from and if there's any offers on.
Availability: I picked mine up in Debenhams but it is widely available online and at Estee Lauder stockists.
My Verdict: Great for problematic skin that needs good coverage, it worked a treat for me whilst my skin was having a bad few weeks. It is a little on the pricey side for me but if you fancy treating yourself then its not too bad for a luxury high end foundation. The staying power is great, i even noticed it didn't budge during some hot humid weather. The fact it doesn't have a pump it abit pants but not a major, the only real let down is the fact you look ghostly in pictures when you've used a flash.
Have you used this foundation? What did u think?
