I read so many good things about this foundation that I couldn’t resist buying it. With so many good reviews this foundation must be fantastic. The Daily Mail voted it 10/10 and it was also awarded product of the year by Consumer Survey of product innovation. Does it live up to the hype? Let’s find out…
This foundation claims to give 70% more radiance and a flawless luminous complexion for up to 16hrs. It also has fruit therapy for radiant boosted skin and anti-dull complexion range.
The fruit therapy
Apricot – Radiance
Melon - Hydration
Apple – Antioxidant
Ginger - Energy
I picked up the palest shade in Vanilla Clair. It’s a tiny bit too dark for me but you would not really notice. The first thing I noticed about this foundation is the AMAZING smell. It smells like no other foundation, really fruity and delicious. I applied my foundation as normal (including primer and powder) and off I went. I looked in the mirror a few hours later and I looked AWFUL. Most of the foundation had faded and it looked very patchy. The pump also broke it now takes aaaaages just to get a tiny bit out. I have to wack it on the back of my hand just to get some out!
I like the idea of fruit therapy
Very light coverage
A little bit too dark
Does not stay on
Pump on bottle broke
I was extremely disappointed with this foundation and REALLY wanted to have liked it. I don’t know how it won so many awards as I found it awful. I’m determined to use it up though and mix it with a better foundation on days where I’m not too pushed about what I look like. (If I’m just going to the shops and wanted my appearance to look acceptable!) However, if I was going somewhere important I would never dream of using this! For me this foundation didn’t live up to the hype at all. Majorly disappointed. Sigh.
Has anybody else tried this foundation? Is it just me who finds it terrible?Larry xx
