I think I have found my holy grail of foundation in my t j Hughes haul
Perfect colour and light coverage, tried looking it up online and I think it is discontinued sad
I bought one bottle but can go and get more tomorrow. How long will it keep if unopened, and how many shall I buy?!

Depends how many you can afford and how much you get through!

The general rule with liquid cosmetics is that you should use them within 12 months once opened. There are always exceptions to the rule which last longer in a reasonable condition.

Unopened (at all) they should keep for years.

I bought 3, thought that wasn't too excessive grin
2.99 each

What is it? Spill!

Oh, I was thinking you were spending circa £30 a bottle!

No way!! Made the most of their closing down sale grin
Almay nearly naked it's called. V sheer and dewy

I almost went in yesterday but has a very cross toddler with me! Sad it's closing - I used to buy all manner of things in the Liverpool store as a student!

Keep it somewhere cool. If you keep it anywhere too hot it can separate even if it's unopened.
