Look what I’ve got….

…Bwhahaa, do we reckon I’ve just wasted £12.99?

Tthis is the lightest shade I could find, C2 (Rose Vanilla) and it looks too dark for me… however, we shall see!

Don’t knock it ’till you tried it and all that eh?  I’m actually willing this to be terrible otherwise I’m gonna have to eat my words aren’t I?

    Wow. I haven’t seen anyone that’s got it yet.

    Looking forward to seeing the results of the ‘application’. Lol.

    I’m guessing the formula probably isn’t too bad, but I still can’t get around the fact that the roller thing appears impossible to use around the nose/eye area etc…
    The thing is, you’ll probably roll it onto your jaw, cheeks, forehead and be like ‘this formula is great!’ then whack out an old faithful foundation brush to get the bugger into the crevices so really the whole USP with the ‘roll-on’ thing will be rendered useless. XD
    Can’t wait to see how you got on though, you’re the first blogger I’ve seen who’s got the trust (or dare I say stupidity? ;P love you really!) to actually give L’Oreal the benefit of the doubt on this one. Good luck chick!

    I bought their True Match Foundation in the bottle with the pump in the same shade – I just looked orange =\ Waste of £13!! Just sat in my makeup basket unused. Hope you get on better with this x

    Ohhhh I very keen to see the results on this one. I’ve been thinking it is all kinds of gimmicky so would be nice to see if it’s any good. I keep imagining women walking around with roller prints on their face.

    Ooh… I’m excited!! Hope it doesn’t suck 😀

    I am so curious how this works, can’t wait to see!

  7. I was considering trying this out but can’t seem to find shades anywhere near pale enough, and most places I looked had sold out of all of them anyway.

    Looking forward to seeing how you get on, kinda hoping that it works in some strange way- or else L’Oreal may have just employed a crazy drunk person to come up with new cosmetic ideas? :)

    I’ll be interested to see what you think of it! I’ve nominated you for a couple of awards – check out my blog :) x

  9. @Bicky – Rowena @ cosmetic-candy has done a review on it. Mine’s coming up this evening (I hope!)

    @Leanne – Well you’re right, although I don’t like the formula too much either.

    @Kim – Yep, this one tangoed me… True Match? True Irony.

    @Eliza – Ha, It is gimmicky, but we must love it or these companies would surely stop coming out with them eh?

    @Ndoodles – We’ll see!

    @Kae – Not long now!

    @BeautyJunkieLondon – I wanna be a crazy drunk person employed by major cosmetic houses – I can innovate!

    @TackyBlueEyeshdow – thanks chick :) xx
