Product Review: The Body Shop's All in One Face Base

Well, I promised a review when I bought this powder in my $26 shopping spree at The Body Shop, so here it is: Not impressed. The All in One Face Base doesn't do any of the things I want my foundation or powder to do. I may have bought it in a too light shade but to me that's better than too dark (My biggest fear: looking like a pumpkin face!). As a powder this products gives little to no coverage and feels sort of chalky on. It doesn't last either, I was shiny by 11am! I guess its called all in one because you can apply it with water, for a more coverage, so I tried that. Still not impressed. It provided a bit more coverage, but I still had to breakout my concealer and dot everywhere to get somewhat of an even tone. Besides the texture was not improved by applying it with a damp sponge. Verdict: I'll use this powder in a pinch, with all my others have run out, but I won't purchase again. Body Shop, how I love thee, I haven't given up on you yet! The search for the perfect powder foundation continues...

I really love Lancome's Dual Finish compact. You can use it wet or dry depending on the coverage you're looking for. Good luck on your continued search! :)
