The dark colours are nicely pigmented. The light ones e.g. Half Baked, Virgin are not pigmented enough. They just look like translucent shimmer on my NC20ish Asian skin tone. The dark colours aren't terribly flattering on my skin either... They just look muddy. Estee Lauder eyeshadow has less fall out, more pigment.
Terrible if you have dry skin (20+) Leaves dry flakes on my face, making my skin look 5 years older as another reviewer said.

HG! Doesn't dry my lips out after repeated use, unlike other drugstore lipbalms containing petroleum e.g. NIVEA.
Really drying on my skin and noticeable. Plus it has alcohol as one of its main ingredients

I've switched to Olay Cleanser - this does too good a job, leaving my face a bit dry afterwards. It does help tone the skin. Edit: switched back to this. Addicted to the glowy effect after i use it. However, I only cleanse once every 5 days now.
Moisturizers -Shiseido - The Skincare - Day Protective Moisturizer SPF 15

Using every now and thenis ok. If I use it too many days in a row, I break out. I guess it clogs pores over time. In addition, it's quite shiny, which I don't really like. Prob will not repurchase.
Treatments -Giovanni - Direct Leave in Conditioner

Really cheap - only paid 12 sing dollars for this, and will last a long time. Performance - it's ok, moisturizes a little bit, keeps hair from drying out, and helps tame frizzies, but not quite as well as higher end products like Kerastase elixir or Chi Silk Infusion. Doesn't weigh hair down, which is fantastic -it's actually really light! Smell is ok - I'm growing to like it. I apply to damp towel dried hair, as per the instructions, then blow dry it. Will repurchase, but only cos Chi's sooo expensive. ><
Scrubs -St. Ives - Ultra Gentle Apricot Facial Scrub

Wouldn't use this on my face again, although it did a good job exfoliating. Not surprising given the huge, rough particles. I do worry about tearing my skin with this - the particles are so rough. It's great as a body scrub after epilating though!
Lucas Pawpaw's much better - unlike this, which dries my lips out after repeated use.

No milia but doesn't actually help with dark circles much either.
Like many other reviewers here, I found this product to be ineffective after about a month. Leaves my hair looking dry. Would not repurchase.
I found that it actually caused pigmentation - little dark spots - on my face. It does leave a white cast on your face, which I don't mind, for it just looks as though I have fairer skin. Actually helps to cover up some red blemishes. It does protect your face from the sun - in the sense that i was was out in the sun for days and did not have sunburn. And I burn quite easily. However, the pigmentation leaves me a very very unhappy customer and means only a rating of 3/5.
