Got this from QVC in a kit, although it corrects and brightens and leaves a dewyness to my skin it doesnt provide coverage in any form at all. This is a pressed correcting powder, but not a foundation!! I wish they would stop marketing as such. Good value if bought in a QVC kit will last ages. I mainly wear this on mornings when doing the school run as usually in a rush with no time. Not bad at all for what it is but it is a pressed powder not foundation. last 5/6 hours. not overly impressed, packing is cheap looking too, which is okay if you get it cheap. UPDATE - actually now sometimes i do use it by itself just to balace and it looks pretty good after a few applications when it melts into the skin may need to buy again.
Eye Shadow -Estee Lauder - Pure Color Eyeshadow in Cinnamon ] [DISCONTINUED]

this is a great shimmery brown colour, looks great on my asian skin tone. only thing is how little you get in the compact, bought this without opening it thinking i was getting a full round pan but got home and it was only half way too expensive at £14 each. i got it while there was a GWP offer so i didnt mind at all. but not sure i would pay full whack just to get this. go for it when there is GWP offer on.
this shade comes up fairly clear looking on my lips with a slight peachyness to it, leaves my lips moisturised and lasts a good while too. i like sticky glosses. i picked these up discounted to half price on their web sale!! well worth buying even at full price.
i really enjoy using smashbox glosses have several of them this colour is a gorgeus neutral pinky shade is really good with dark eyes. worth buying in some form of kit from qvc. i must however purchase this one again. i love it.
Lotions/ Creams -L'Occitane - 20% Shea Butter Hand Cream

i love this hand cream for years i put up with blisters and cracks on my fingertips only ever using cheap stuff thinking that that loccitane hand cream is just the same never believed it would be this great!! sorted out me hand within 7 days now i have perfect hands i love the various fragrances you can get this in. lemon and cherry blossom are my faves. but for value and everyday i love the plain shea, its great value really lasts.
i have bought this many times i love how smooth it makes my skin feel and my foundation really lasts a long time. i only ever buy it from qvc in combined kits so it is possible to hold of this without forking out the rrp. so not sure i would pay full retail for this, id rather try something different. but saying that i would stick with it at a descent price.

i had a problem with this moisturizer making my eyes sting and water like crazy, but it has a nice texture and is very moisturizing. not sure about the brightening claims though.
