I was very pleased w/this product. I use this on needed areas instead of foundation allover. However, if you have serious dark circles or imperfections, it isn't the best concealer. I know it's supposed to be a highlighter, but I use it as a concealer. One gripe I have is that the color slightly turns grayish under my eyes after a long day/night. But it isn't enough so that I would stop using or repurchase this product.
Unless you have extremely dry or sensitive skin, I would not recommend this product for you. This is a very gentle & creamy cleanser, & if you like the squeaky clean feeling after cleansing, then you will be disappointed.
This product really moisturizes well. I would recommend for people with normal to dry skin. However, I found it very expensive (about $10/ bottle). The smell is not too pleasant either. I think you could achieve similar results w/the Johnson & Johnson's creamy baby oil, which is a lot cheaper.

This is a great eye cream for people who are buying their first eye cream. The light reflectors are very flattering, & the formula is very light. It has noticeably diminished my puffiness, but hasn't done too much for my dark circles.

I am asian w/light to medium skin. This color really flatters my skintone, and gives you an enhanced natural look. The only negative thing is that it's not very moisturizing & doesn't have great staying power. However, overall a good buy.
Very moisturizing, and the color is very subtle while delivering good gloss. Your lips do feel softer after application. Only gripe is that it's in a pot so you have to use your fingers to apply.
Lips -Neutrogena - MoistureShine tinted lip balm in Nude #40 [DISCONTINUED]

Although the color is very flattering, the moisture does not last on the lips. I found that just a few minutes after applying, my lips feel very dry & therefore have to reapply. Has no staying power.
Toners -Shiseido - White Lucent Brightening Balancing Softener Enriched

This product is a bit pricey, but I believe it does a good job of softening & brightening. However, I think you can get a good enough softener for a cheaper price.
A great moisturizer. During the winter, I use a few drops on top of my regular cream moisturizer. During the summer, you can use it alone over your toner/softener. It also works great on skin rashes. Even though it's an oil, still very light while gives great moisture. Face feels softer.
This is clay mask that cleans out your pores. You only need a little product which covers the whole face. And the mask only needs 10 minutes to absorb. I notice the effects immediately. My skin looks clearer, fresher, & feels cleaner. At $30/bottle, a bit pricey. I waited until it finally went on sale.
This mascara really fattens up your lashes & makes them noticeable. The brush really grabs all your lashes. This is one of the best mascaras I have tried.
This scrub is very gentle, yet does the job. However, if you prefer a deeper more abrasive scrub, I do not recommend this product. This product would be best for someone with not many skin trouble or sensitive skin.
Cleansers -Shiseido - White Lucent Brightening Cleansing Foam

Just a little bit. Half a pea size is all it takes to create a luxurious foam. My face feels very clean afterwards. The smell is pleasant also.
This cleanser removes all traces of makeup & dirt on your face. Does not require a separate eye makeup remover. Very convenient as the oil if water soluble. Although it is a little pricey, it lasts me a long time. I buy multiple bottles when DHC has it on sale.
A superior conditioner. Adds a lot of moisture, softness, and sheen. A very good hair mask for a low price. If you have really dry hair or heat style your hair frequently, I would definitely recommend!
