My favorite is the Korres Wild Rose Compact Foundation Powder!
It's finely milled, and super silky-soft.
It has a GREAT coverage on it's own (over a primer)- but I like a little bit more coverage so I put it ontop of my foundation.

The Korres Vitamin Concealer is amazing!
It's lightweight and sheer, however you can layer it for more coverage.







The Korres Guava Lipstick in 17 Pink is definitely a darker pink for me- and it's more rosy in my opinion. It lasts a long time, which is nice!
But paired with a neutral eye, your lips definitely stand out with this shade of lipstick!
