This is great stuff. It really dries in a minute and you only need one layer of color. It's also very cheap (about 2 usd). I will buy more colors :)
Great body lotion. It's very light and gets into the skin right away. I use it on my face also and I haven't had any breakouts. I am not a big fan of the smell though, so I don't think I will buy it again :(
This works well and it doesn't sting if it gets into your eyes. It costs about 6-7 US dollars. The packaging would have been better if it was transparent. I would buy this again though. Oh also, I massage it into the skin then wipe it with a damp cotton disc. It works best this way.
This is a pretty good lipbalm. It is about 4-5 US dollars for 4,8g of product. The packaging is okay, even though I'd rather use a product that comes in a lipgloss tube, rather than a stick - but that's just me. It doesn't have a taste, nor a scent, it hydrates well and isn't sticky at all. Besides emolients, it also contains Octyl methoxycinnamate, which is a sunscreen ingredient that protects from UV-A and UV-B sun rays, and also some antioxidants (Tocopheryl Acetate and BHT).
It says it's supposed to be for normal/combination skin, but I find it too drying even though my face can get pretty oily by the end of the day. The texture is light, and the fragrance is not bad, but I find it too strong. The packaging is cute though, but too bad that's the nicest thing about this product.

I use it to remove the last traces of cleansing milk, but it works well by itself, even for waterproof make up. I also use it in the morning. It's a bit pricey, but less expensive than most brands. It smells nice and light. It leaves my face a bit sticky afterwards, but that feeling goes away after a couple of minutes.

This cleanser is quite good. It's fluid, it works for waterproof make up, but it leaves a bit of an oily surface on the skin. That shouldn't be a problem if you wash your face or wipe it with a toner/micellar cleanser or with wet wipes. It has a "rosy" fragrance which I like. It does contain a few potential irritants, but I didn't have a problem with that. I usually massage it onto the skin for a few seconds, then wipe it off with a cotton wipe. Later edit: if you get it into your eyes, it will sting, even though it says you can use it for your eye make up as well. Meh. Not so good in the end.
This product is really bad. It doesn't cover even the smallest blemishes, it creases and it's flakey. I guess it could work as a highlighter, or if you don't have very dark eye circles.

Light, but moisturizing (it can actually get pretty oily if you don't have dry skin). Very light fragrance. It lasted for about a year of daily use. The packaging is pretty bad though, the product can easily leak. It's pricey. I wouldn't buy again, there are better products.

The product itself is good. No smudges, no clumps, it looks natural. The smell, however, is really bad.

I liked this product. It does get a bit oily on my skin, but that goes away after a couple of minutes. It works great with waterproof make up. It's also pretty inexpensive.

It's indeed a little expensive, but it lasted me a whole year of daily use. It doesn't usually crease or stay in fine lines. It does well if you don't have severe blemishes, but I was hoping it had better coverage.
I have one in 266 and I love the color. It lasts pretty well and it goes on smoothly. It doesn't dry up very fast, but it doesn't bother me much. It needs 2 coats though, but I've never had a nail varnish that looked great from only one coat.
I like it, even though it needs reapplying after 4-5 hours. It glides smoothly and it is pigmented.
It smells nice and it worked for me during my teen years. However, it seemed to dry my skin too much during the last couple of moths I used it (or maybe my skin type became more dry lately), so I'm not using it anymore. I recommend it for greasy hair, but I'm not sure this works for a sensitive scalp because of the menthol.
