I wouldn't say it has great coverage. It didn't do much for my dark circles, but it is not drying and gives you a nice glow around the eye area. The light diffusing properties of this stuff is very good, but just not good enough for covering dark circles. I would buy again just because it seems to make my skin look decent somehow.
THis stuff is really really thick. I wouldn't want to kiss anyone with this stuff on. I think for those colrs, you are much better off trying another brand that is less heavy.
I am NC30 and MMM-olive and this lip gloss looks really great in the day. Goes really well with my complexion.
I have large almond eyes and this is the only eye liner that does not rub off onto my creases at the end of the day. YOu CAN smudge it when you first put it on with an eyeliner brush for a more natural effect.

I am MMM-Olive and this color does not show up on my face so I use as a base. I use it on my lids as an everyday shadow bec. it gives a slight shimmer and is not too heavy. I have not seen any creasing. This is not too pigmented. I don't think I would use this for any real effect.
I love this blush. But it does not have long staying power. The colors look absolutely natural. If you want that "I just came in fromn outside" look, this one would be the one to get. Great for summer.

This product is good for someone with really oily skin as it contains alcohol, although the alcohol is supposed to somehow help you retain moisture ( I don't know how). There is an alcohol free version. I have combo skin and it started to dry out my T-zone area and now, I can see slight flakes. So I will return for alcohol free version.
I purchased this produst cause I thought it would help with my brittle ends. It really didn't do anything. My ends did get softer, but it did not make my hair shinier or do anything wonderful to it.
This is one of the best nailpolish out there. If you like doing nails at home, this stuff goes on really well without streaking and without problems. Always perfect. I have used dark and very light pink colors and have NEVER had a problem with this product. The colors are a bit difficult to find, tho.

This comes in a tube. I have long thick hair and I use this product for straightening and styling my frizzy head. The thing I like about this product is that it doesn't grease down my scalp and ooze onto my face. Usually, when I use hair creams, by the end of the evening, my face starts to feel a bit greasy and my hair seems to go flat around my scalp. I have an oily scalp and dry ends, and this is the only product I would reach for to style the roots around my head. But it doesn't give shine or moisture like some other creams, so for that, you need to add on another product.
I am NC30. This color really matches my skin tone. It is a bit drying tho and you shouldn't use if you have dry skin. I use with powder brush for light coverage.

I use the eye capsules. I used to use the Chanel anti-wrinkle firming eye cream, which did nothing for me and gave me an allergic reaction. This stuff seems to work really well around my eyes although it doesn't feel very heavy. It is like a light oil, and I was a bit surprised by the good results. I use it only in the evenings and I have noticed that my dark circles are no more, so I guess it is hydrating my eyes.

It did fade some sun spots/freckles and did a good job of smoothing out my face, but I started to become sensitive to the stuff. I stopped for awhile and retried and it did not have the same effect again. This product contains retinol. You need moisturizer to use after this serum.

This is not a product to buy if you have oily hair cause you'll feel it. I generally avoid this on my scalp and use it starting from the middle of my head down. It is a really great cream for styling and adding shine. I follow afterwards with a light shine spray. The packaging sucks. It is a pump, but the stuff started just leaking into the top for no reason. When I travel, I always carry this around cause it is a cream that is very versatile.
This is one of my favorite scents. I don;t think it would be my signature scent, tho. I wear this for day/night, generally using only the body mist for the summer. I get compliments for this from men. IMO, this is more of a subjective scent..meaning, you need to spritz it on you and figure out by the end of the day if you like it. There are other fragrances where you just like the odor right away, but this is more the kind where you need have it on for awhile and you'll see it is a lot lovelier than expected. I got this as a gift from my Bf and IMHO, I really didn;t like it but wore it for him just as a thank you. But once I wore it, I realied how much I liked it. Strange. I would never have bought this on my own. Since then I have purchased the body mist and shower gel.
