Got this as a GWP. It contains two shades, suntan and tan. Suntan is a matte pale beige and tan is a medium shimmey bronze. Provides very natural color and is hypoallergenic.
This is a very shimmery bronzer for fair or medium skin. Definitely not good for daytime, rather for the beach or night time. It's a good warm color (Sun Drenched) and it stays put. The compact is a bit bulky, though.
This is a compact powder by Lise Watier. I bought the color Sahara, which is a warm medium beige. I looked a bit too pink for me, but it's very sheer, so it worked out. However, it's a very sheer product and you definitely have to reapply often. Also, there is nothing special about this powder. It doesn't feel silky, doesn't provide light, nothing. In this light, it is a very expensive powder. The compact is pretty, but it gets scratched very fast.
Of all the Mineral Power line, I like this product the best. I use the Medium shade. It can be used with all kinds of makeup products and gives me a very polished but natural look. Sometimes, I use it on its own. I had to reapply at noon, though.

I bought the Sandy Beige (medium 1) color. It's very orangey compared to the liquid form. I find it very hard to find the right shade with the cardboard packaging. Coverage with this product is harder to control. The brush that's provided is a little bit rough. However, once you find your color, it stays on all day and controls shine well.
I give this 5/5. It is: affordable blends in fast provides buildable coverage lasts all day does not cause breakouts I use the yellow based Sandy Beige (medium 2.5).

I didn't like this. It actually made my hair two shades darker than it really is and it also made it dry, very dry. It also isn't very shin anymore... Weird. It's been three weeks and it hasn't faded one bit, that's one good thing.

Nice colors, but it's a very sheer product. Good if you're pale or going for a subtle glowy look.

Hate. Hate. Hate. i've been self-tanning forever and rarely experience streaks or anything of the like. This gel: a) never dries b) streaks a lot c) gives off an orangy color d) gives lizard skin effect as it fades Hate.
I'm just averagely pleased with this. I mean, it does what it's supposed to do. My skin is clearer, more radiant. It's also soft and it does not breakout. I also like the texture and how it sinks in very fast. But the smell? And the price for a very basic moisturiser? No thank you.

I've been using this for two weeks. My skin does not need much firming to start with, but it has become softer and even more firm. It has a slightly funny herbal scent, but nothing overwhelming. Great!
This is dirt cheap (5-7$ cdn) and awesome. It's a no-frills lipbalm for those days your mouth is peling, cracking, the works. I love how it's thick, but not too thick, slippery, but not greasy and best of all, it does not taste anything. I have 5 of them around the house.

This is a fairly dry stick foundation that comes in a smallish 12g tube. I bought it in Warm Beige, which is a medium shade. The foundation itself works better as a concealer, because it's so dry. I've had no problems blending it in, however. It's just that stick foundations in general should be spot used only, right? So I would buy this again, but only to use as a concealer.

I like this a lot when I'm in need of definition that's not as extreme as Redken Rough Paste. It's great and lightweight. However, it does not hold a flippy do or create mucho definition as it claims it does, unless you use a whole lot and that would be totally nasty.

This comes in a 125 ml tube. basically, it's a gel bronzer in a fairly dark shade, available in matte or shimmer version. I like it a lot, as I use it to temporarily camouflage any self-tanner mishaps and it totally works for that purpose. It generally does not rub off until you decide to take a shower. The packaging says you need to wash it off with soap and water, but I wouldn't try going to the beach with this. Still, very good product.
