I cansee good reviews on QVC but does anyone here actually use it? I can never seem to get the Balance n brighten (foundation, yes?) in stock so I expect it is popular but the best reviews seem to come from her blush n brighten.

Any tips on this brand would be appreciated.

I love the blushers, best I've ever used.
And the foundation. I sometimes use other things that come in the kits that are very good value.
You can often get the Balance & Brighten in a kit when it's not in stock by itself, better value that way too.

I love Laura Geller and Mally (both QVC)

LG - I've got the baked powder base (skin is good so I only need light cover thankfully)
The blusher (Roseberry) is nice but a bit has broken off (I dropped it) shock
I didn't like the mascara- too wet,smudgey
The brow pen- I should have bought a darker brown but it was good.
I had a lipgloss (sort of almondy smell) but it was too dark for me. DD 'relocated' it. But it was nice and moisturising if a bit sticky.

Mally- I love the mascara. I've got rubbish eyelashes and this is the best I've used.
The eyeliners and eye crayons -bullet proof.

I really like it.
The balance & brighten foundation is lovely and I use it either on its own or over my Bb cream.
Her blushers are lovely but quite dark for my very fair skin so use a light touch. I've just got one called Bora Bora from eBay and its the perfect colour for me.
I haven't tried the mascara (I use mally too) but her lip glosses and primers are really nice.

If you can wait a few weeks the next TSV has the balance & brighten in and will work out lots cheaper. It's on very early December and the kit is the 'fresh brewed beauty' kit which they've already had in the US.

I will wait for the tsv then. Thanks. I want to try spakle too.

When I bought the "Baked Goodies" collection TSV a couple of years back I gave DD the empty box to keep treasures in. It was like a cake-box with drawings of cupcakes on it.
DS was very upset that I'd given her this lovely present (he thought a box of cakes) and not him.

Ah, bless wink

I'm very pale too, I use the Porcelain B&B, and find the Ethereal Rose is a perfect blusher for every day. Have a few others if I need a bit more colour but keep going back to that. It's the only one I've ever hot to the bottom of the pan with!
