They had a counter in my local Debenhams for a few years the quality was good for their products. Loads of their products turned up in TKMaxx when they pulled out of department stores after being bought over.
I really dislike cream blusher, you are supposed to power over it. So either I forget altogether and have my loose powder already done or put it on and then after powder you can hardly see I have any blush on.

I’d really like to try this brand but the colours are way too dark for me. Seeing it coming up, I went on one of those foundation matching sites where you put in ones that are right for you in another brand & in this brand it came up with 2 for me. The lightest in this TSV is 4 & the lipstick & blusher look way to dark as well. What a pity, I’d have bought had there been lighter offerings.
Yes, the beige neutral-warm beige etc will be taking over with 1-12 upwards etc as the new branding. I did read a blogger state we are all a shade of beige. Some brands always did have names like that but QVC rarely gave the proper names when they sold foundation.
There is also a rethink from brands about the term anti-ageing as nothing will stop your ageing. The brands used the term anti-ageing as if their products will stop ageing and there is a problem with women ageing. So many brands are listening and changing to lifting and firming as the new term. Lancome/O'real famous for using teenage or 20-year-old models for their anti-ageing creams.
