Girls - have any of you used this product? I have a mate coming over from Ireland and is buying me some stuff in the Duty Free, as cosmetics in Oz are crazy expensive O:| I've read it is fantastic but before I fork out over $50 on it was wondering if it's any good?

I've used Clarins Beauty Flash Balm, its been about for years and does the same thing.. Go to any clarins counter and ask for a sample, say you were going to buy the ysl but want to try it.. their samples are pretty generous.. I think think i'd fork over 50 for it, the clarins on is about 30ish.. i think..

Is this stuff a similiar product? From what I read it was quite different? (now I feel like a prat!)

Ah sure, we'll give it a bash - haven't bought any cosmetics since I went home last November so feel like a bit of a splurge and if it doesn't work, it'll just join the other bazillion half empty products in the basket under my bathroom sink. If he can get it, and it's any good, I'll let you know. Winter has been cr*p here this year and my skin needs some attention to get it looking good for summer, so am willing to give anything a shot at this stage!

Ok now I deffo want some, I rarely use foundation so this stuff sounds extra super for me (God am such a marketing hoar).. In typical 'BOC luck' though I bet the Duty Free where my mate is coming from (Manila) won't have the feckin' stuff.

I want this so much, but it's too fookin expensive and I can't afford i at the moment. I read in a magazine last week that a top make up artist swears by it, then I went on and read the reviews on makeupalley and it made me want it even more!
