Diorskin nude foundation. Really good for coverage and pale skin.

i bought a 62 quid dior foundation (accidentally, didn't realise how much it was til i was at the checkout) called something like captive totale, which is v good, it's a heavier coverage than the diorskin foundation.

and the diorshow blackout mascara is blimmin brilliant

Absolutely go to the counter and make sure you make the most of your prize! I get given free products in return for crediting cosmetics companies on a fashion shoot so I'm always going to the counter to get advice on what to choose. Just be upfront with the person so they know you're not purchasing and go at a time that's quiet so they are not missing out on sales by spending time with you. (They aren't on commission but they do get their arses kicked if they don't make target.) A Monday is a good bet, or maybe Tuesday, as this Monday in Bank Holiday.

A few things I really like from Dior are, the Dior Addict Glow Lipbalm which is great for days you don't want to wear lipstick as it brings out the natural colour of your lips and adapts to each individual person who wears it. They do a really nice SPF35 Illuminating Moisturiser (which I don't remember the name of). The Sculpt 10 Focus Firming eye lift is supposed to be great too but I've not tried it personally. The new sheer lipsticks are lovely too, especially the bright coral and the pink. And my all time favorite red lipstick which may or may not be of interest to you. Diorific Rouge Bingo/Roulette Red (No13.)

What about Dior perfumes too ? They do some lovely ones, I currently have the Pure Poison one which I love.
