I HATED THIS! Like the initial effect but that didn't last long! Hard to remove, smudged like there was no tomorrow, and is definately not waterproof.
Meh, not my fave blush. Somehow i can't seem to get this to work, i end up with a blotchy face. The color is a deep berry shade and doesn't work with my yellow toned MMM skin. Love the packaging though and it's huge so i suppose you get your money's worth.

This was so-so for me. It was WAY too brown for me. Usually I prefer lighter colours. But i love the texture: sheer, glossy (not glassy shine), lightweight feel. I can see how this would look nice on some people. I'm an asian MMM, with pinkish rosy lips.
This is one nice blush. The shimmer is really sublte and even suitable for daytime. A light hand gives me a subtle glow. A little more, and i'm ready for a night out. Really versatile. But it's pretty easy to go overboard with this since it's so pigmented. It shows up more rosy than plummy, and when you add too much it ends up looking really muddy. (I'm an asian MMM.)
As some previous reviews said, this blush looks like a really blah and plain muted pink (with a hint of brown and peach). But it looks so natural and subtle pinky flush (in a good way)on my yellow toned MMM skin. Great everyday look, neutral enough for richer eye looks. *Edit* Actually looks like a peachy-brown on my winter yellow-toned skin (C3). Saving this for summer, because right now it makes me blah.
I quite like this! Really pretty nude color. This is great on me and doesn't wash me out (although it does look better with some blush!). Although it's nice, it didn't really WOW me. Edit: Some might find this too orange for them, so better off testing this first.
This is a great mask for my occasional blemishes. It dries relatively quickly and my blemishes are less visible by the next morning! They're completely gone in 2-3 treatments!

I got this as an extra and all i can say is, THIS SUCKS. I ended up using it as a paint medium to thin down my watercolour.
I like this in general, it's kinda sticky, but not in a overtly annoying way. Minimal colour payoff but quite shiny. On my lips, you can't really see the glitter/shimmer (which is good IMO) unless you stand REALLY close to me. Edit: I take it all back, leaves a sticky film to my lips, drying. Don't like anymore.

Love the packaging. Let me warn you, the lipstick looks black in the tube so a little goes a long way. I like the stain finish, not glossy. The colour is really nice, but somehow it doesn't quite work for me. but i like it anyways!
This is a great stain! I'm a MMM asian and it looks really natural on me, even though it looks absolutely disgusting in the tube! I didn't turn up orangey at all! Staying power is great and spreads really nicely! you only need a little bit at a time. My only gripe is that it tends to stain my fingers as well! *edit* Actually takes more product to get the look i want that expected.
Styling Products -Salon Selectives - Fully Pumped- volume & shine styling foam

Dirt cheap, got on sale for $3 CDN. I have fine asian hair and this adds just enough volume and when i blowdry with it it gives me perfect well defined stick straight hair. This brings out my highlights really well too! Really helps tames my flyaways. Love the bottle and the foam. Be careful of adding too much because it'll give you the sticky hair product-y feeling. The smell is pleasant, but personally i'm not too fond of it. I found that it isn't quite as shiny as i would like it, so i add in a but of hair gloss to my wet hair (a little less volume but shinier).
This is my first TM, i found it pretty good. It feels light, no smell (a big plus). Evens my skintone pretty well, but i still have to see it in natural light. Doesn't cover zits, i still powder my t-zone. *edit* After a while it settled in around my pores and made them loog HUGE. For my winter skin it looks absolutely horrible! A shade too dark and too orange/pink. The yellow in my skin is more evident when I'm pale so this becomes horrible for me!
I dunno if i want to buy this product again. It really does give you the "beach look", like you've been swimming all day, especially the smell (kinda salty and coconutty). But it does nothing for my mid/long stick straight fine asian hair. Makes it a little rough too (but hey that's what happens at the beach!). If you're looking for hold, then this is the wrong product. I like the piecey texture, but it had a little too many flyaways. The bottle isn't going to last very long, considering you need a lot of it.

Despite all the rave reviews this got, not really my type. Can't seem to find the right colour. I can only use this product on my nose area. On my cheeks and forehead, it was kind of drying. Like the creamy consistency and blendability (word?)
