LOREAL TRUE MATCH ROLLER

This is just a little mini-rant here. I'd like to know what you guys think of this product. Have you tried it? Would you reccomend it? I can't be the only one who thinks this is a terrible idea, can I? Even if it "rolls" on like a dream, that roller is going to get so dirty and you can't buy a replacement! Even with washing, it will be rubbish sooner rather than later. Maybe I'm wrong. Let me know if you think I am.

personally, it seems like a stupid idea to harvest more money by jacking up the price. I mean, I honestly think that the price of L'oreal's stuff could be lower if they didn't decide to add so much fluff to thier products. Ex: bulky and unnecessary packaging, useless brushes, this rollly thing

I purchased this a few weeks ago and it still sits untouched. I keep looking at it saying "okay, today is the day I try it" and then I change my mind and use typical foundation. I need to suck it up and try it and review it. Maybe by next week. :o)

This foundation looks like the worst idea ever.And have you seen the tv ad with Eva Longoria? How pathetic! She's sharing her super secret about the magic foundation that reaches every corner of your face thanks to the roll.... As if!

I have seen this in stores a few times now and have never, ever been tempted to give it a try. It looks like an awful, gimicky idea to me! I just don't understand the concept behind it.

I don't intend to buy this foundation. First, like you said, for sanitary reason - hard to clean. Second, lots of reviews mentioned it was hard to control the amount of foundation to put on, as if you go over it the second time, another layer of stuff. I'm happy with regular kind of foundation and a foundation brush :-)

I haven't tried it, but I agree, thinking it looks horrible and gimmicky. You can't reach every area of your face with a little roller! It doesn't bend, this product doesn't even make sense.

I think its just another gimmick with poor results. When I see this, all I can think about is taking a roller brush used for painting walls and painting my face with it, I would imagine getting better results using this method.

On an unrelated note, I remember seeing this product display at Walmart and I guess some small child had taken the roller and rolled the product all over the product display and onto the neighboring displays, the beauty department just looked like a big foundation-y mess. Since then I've been put off this product and children, lol. Just joking, I love kids, the good ones at least, lol, okay I will stop before I offend someone.
