Would be very grateful. Is it great? it's very £££
I have hormonal skin and prone to the odd spot here and there, I hear it's good for that and pores etc.

I love it, but only use it for nights out as I find it fairly heavy coverage (even if I think I'm only putting on a tiny amount) and it takes far longer to apply than liquid foundation. It does hide my pores really well though, and gives a lovely even finish.

If you buy it from qvc you can return it if you don't like it

Marmite product! I absolutely hated it, it made my skin look shiny in a most unattractive way (discoball). I also found that my skin didn't like all the buffing with the brush. Many seem to love it though.
Definitely agree with housewife , buy it from qvc, try for up to 30 days then return if you hate it. It will cost you P&P but better than shelling out a huge amount for a product you may hate.

I do't rate it much. V expensive, a major faff and made my skin look dry and flaky...

I use lily lolo, very reasonable prices, and a lovely finish. I use a matt finishing powder on top that helps with shine.
You can order samples of the different shades, so if you try it and aren't keen you've not wasted too much money.

I've just bought some minerals and are really happy with them. Glad I tried the samples first. I bought foundation, finishing powder and the yellow stuff for dark circles.
I also bought some HD powder from ELF ( which I really rate
