- Infused with the resilient Alpine Rose to brighten the skin’s appearance and promote elasticity
- Hyaluronic Acid helps balance skin for a smoother, more youthful appearance.
I totally LOVE this foundation, it leaves my skin looking flawless! It is just beautiful, my only complaint which is tiny is becareful if buying online as the shades are quite difficult to choose as I had Porcelain which I thought was the lightest shade but it is actually 1-2 shades darker than vanilla? So I would suggest gong in store or getting a sample before buying yours. But I can still wear Porcelain, I just use less and sheer it out and it looks fine. I will just use it in the summer months as it lasts all day and absorbs my oil .. I just can't praise this foundation any more.. It is currently my HG foundation for all weathers and occasions. If you're looking for a foundation that is super comfortable to wear all day and fantastic coverage, this is definitely the one for you!!! I've tried so many foundations and this one stood out to me the most. it feels like you're wearing absolutely nothing while giving you flawless looking skin.
Available for £29.00 as all good beauty stores.

I love the scent of this fragrance, it's lovely and delicate, a lingering sexy mist, the scent lasts a good 8-10 hours on me, but I can still smell on my clothes the morning after, the scent is beautiful. Perfect for spring/summer. I imagine this would make a gorgeous wedding fragrance as it just has something lovely and romantic about it.

it’s a foundation that is the texture of a tinted moisturiser, it is only available in two shades for £8.99. I have the lighter shade, I was pleasantly surprised just how well it covered my redness and freckles. It Provided the perfect base for my contour, a Light coverage base that has Smart Pigments to match the skin’s colour, it also builds to a perfect level of blendable coverage. It leaves me with flawless-looking skin without caking as it has grip technology which fuses with your contour for a long-lasting sculpted finish. You can wear as a primer/base or as your foundation which I think is great depending in the look you prefer.

All are beautiful and look like they will suit all skin tones, so compact but with great pigmentation to give you a stunning finish.

Available in light/medium and medium/dark. Available for £9.99 each, the contour is a little orange on my skin if I use too much product, but used lightly and blended well I can easily make it work.
