Before i start i just want to say that the colour i chose was completely wrong - gutted :(
I always choose medium because my skin isn't that fair but it's not that tanned either, medium is usually just right...they come in 4 different shades - light, medium, tan and dark. Shade 2 is usually perfect for me but this medium is more of a tan unfortunately and before you can really realise this you have to open it.
I purchased the Sheer Cover® 30-Day Introductory Kit - which does offer quite a lot :-
2 x Mineral Foundation in two shades (1.5g each)
Duo Concealer in two shades (1.5g)
Extra-Length Mascara (4ml)
Conditioning Cleanser (60ml)
Nourishing Moisturiser with SPF15 (30ml)

First i will show you the concealer and how it looks:-
I do quite like it, the consistency is perfect, it smooths on so nicely - but it tends to build up in creases which i hate!(see below pic) I was really disappointed by that as everything else about it was really great.
As you can see the concealer has built up in my eye crease, it was the same on my eyelid :(
They come with two different shades, the lighter colour matches my face fine I'm not sure why my hands look see-through - it's pretty cold in my house!
Now for the foundation. I'm sure you have all seen the Sheer cover advert where they apply this powder and their skin looks flawless, well it kind of does that! It has a really weird consistency, it looks like a powder but when applied feels more like a heavy foundation - which i wasn't expecting at all.
I did a swatch test, i drew a dot with my eyebrow pencil then put the sheer cover on to see how it worked and i think it worked pretty well. If that was a little spot i think it would camouflage it perfectly. Talking of spots the only downside was the fact it made me break out in them! I rarely get spots and after using this i had a few. I think it has something to do with the very greasy feel it leaves and at the end of the day that is visible - a la shiny face!
Here are the results (when first applied) - it is completely the wrong colour but for some reason my face looks very pale which it isn't normally that colour :/
It does make my skin look pretty flawless but you can see where it sinks into my pours. I think the fact that it makes me look so much more tanned makes it look better.
I paid £29.99 for this and for everything you get it's a pretty good price but i am disappointed. After seeing those amazing infomercials i was expecting some kind of magic powder. If it was in my colour i would definitely wear it sometimes - but the fact it makes me break out means i won't (vicious circle!).
