This style is excellent for a night out, without looking over-done. I have even worn them during the day (once, following a long night out.) I really like that the band maintains a slight curve once removed from the package -- I think that helps with application. They stay looking good for several wears.
I used to buy the old formula and it was one of my favorite. This new one settles into lines and shows off your pores. It also feels very heavy. The old formula used to make me break out a lot, though and this one fails to do so. That is a redeeming quality.
I am honestly very disappointed. Upon opening this jar I was hit with a horrible smell. The taste was nothing special either. I would have assumed a big time chef could have come up with something a lot tastier. I would much rather eat a generic store brand.
