I've been using this for about two years, and I'm still in love. It provides a fairly matte, non-greasy finish, and this is the only sunscreen which has never caused me to break out. The tint is a little bit too dark for my PPP skin, but it's not very noticable. I love opaque packaging is great because it means the antioxidants are protected. HG. *Update* Not using this anymore as I find it's easier using a moisturiser with sunscreen built into it (Ultraceuticals 30+)
Lovely YLBB gloss. I'm exceptionally pale, so I have to use this with a light hand. I love the texture of Glossimers, they're moisturising, non-sticky, and longlasting. The colour is just perfect, for day or night. If I'm ever not sure which gloss to wear, I always reach for this. My old faithful.
I love this conditioner *so* much! It makes my hair feel so silky and moisturised, but doesn't weigh it down at all. This also detangles brilliantly, and has improved the overall condition of my hair (along with the shampoo and leave-in treatment). HG.
My fine hair just loves this shampoo, it's gentle, but still cleans my hair very well. It doesn't tangle at all and moisturises a little bit, but doesn't weigh hair down. The smell could be a little better (it smells of citrus), but other than that, it's a fantastic shampoo. *Update* This gives me pimples around my hair line, so upset because I loved this shampoo. Downgrading it to 3 lippies.
This powder is so finely milled that it just vanishes into skin. It's controls shine all day but still looks very natural, not cakey at all. I only need to use a small amount of product, so this will probably last me forever. If I ever run out though, I'll repurchase.
This colour looks scary in the pan, but once applied turns into a natural looking, bright pop of pink. I'm ghastly pale so I only need to use a tiny amount. The colour is buildable, so this is good for a natural, slightly flushed look, or bright pink "dolly" cheeks.
I'm deathly pale, and this blush gives me a healthy just-come-in-from-the-cold flush. It's extremely pigmented, so you only need to use a tiny amount. The blush doesn't look cakey, powdery, or greasy whatsoever. It just gives a very slight, natural looking sheen. This is the *perfect* winter blush. HG.

This is a gorgeous medium, cool toned pink with shimmer. When I first apply it, the colour really stands out, but after a minute or so it settles down and becomes a very wearable, slightly purple-ish pink. It smells like raspberry lollies as well...

Although this gloss looks quite red in the tube, it goes on *very* sheer. It's neither cool nor warm in colour IMO. The texture is moisturising, gel-like, and not too sticky. This would be a great gloss for someone to subtly enhance their natural lipcolour, or to apply over a lipstick for extra depth. However, on my very pale lips, it only provided a very sheer pinkish tint. For those of you after something with a bit more pigment, try YSL Tinted Lip Balm #3.

After loving #3 Rose Cordial, I just had to try another YSL tinted lip balm. This colour is just divine, a very wearable, clear red. It looks scary in the tube, but it has just the right amount of pigment, not overdone at all (unless used heavy handidly). It looks gorgeous against my glow-in-the-dark PPP skin, and makes my skin-coloured lips look naturally pigmented. Definate HG

This is exactly what I have been looking for in my hunt for the perfect tinted lip balm! I have very pale lips and this gives them a healthy pop of pink, as if they're blushing. Just perfect against my PPP skin. This is very moisturising as well. Remember this is a lip BALM though, not a gloss, and could look too strong if piled on.

This is one of the few foundations that is light enough for my PPP complexion. It's not a perfect match, could be a bit lighter, but it's still the best I've found. This foundation is so easy blend, and is not cakey at all. It looks completely natural, like I simply have perfect skin.

The consistency of this gloss is very nice, and not at all sticky. It's a nice pale, translucent pink with a mermaid-like pale green shimmer. With my pale skin, brown hair and nonpigmented lips, it washes me out badly. But I think this would look stunning on someone with darker lips.
