Sunscreen -Neutrogena - Fine Fairness UV Block spf30

I used a few bottles of this and even recommended it to my mom because it seems to offer a fairly high level of UV protection. However, I later realized that the 'fairness' effect that it was supposed to have probably meant the whitish cast it leaves on the skin. It is quite obvious and people would comment that my skin was very white. On top of that, it also made my skin really greasy by late morning, and I would have to blot my face about 3 times by late afternoon. I ended up using the rest on my arms.

This is a really fantastic find for me! I live in hot, humid weather, and have puffy eyes, so all other eyeliners I've used before tend to run or melt and I end up with panda-like eyes. This one, however, stays put the whole day and still looks as fresh as when I applied it in the morning. It draws very easily and does require a steady hand!
Cleansers -Totally Juicy - pineapple pore cleanser

I really like this product. It smells really fruity and yummy, and is a pleasure to use. I must admit, when I first used it I didn't realize it had witch hazel (which is what causes the tingly menthol feeling), so I thought I was having a serious allergic reaction and panicked! Anyway, now I find it wonderfully refreshing to use in the mornings to perk me up. In response to the earlier posts here, just close your eyes and make sure you rinse them with LOTS of water after.
I used this 2x a day for 8 weeks on my old silvery stretch marks and it has made absolutely NO difference in them! It is nothing more than a really rich moisturiser. Try something else for stretchmarks....I dunno what else, but if you find something that works, pls email me!

I totally love this colour! I'm a chinese FFF, and this looks pinky nude on my lips. Very youthful and pretty! Looks amazing with soft pink blusher. Has a strong 'sweet' vanilla-ish smell, but I got used to it after a while.
Once I started buying these, I just couldn't stop! They're so cheap (I live in Asia, and these cost 1/7th the price of Lancome JTs here!) and fun to use! I now have Raspberry, Strawberry, Peach, Pearl and Orange. My first tube of Peach leaked in my bag (this seems to be a rite of passage for BP owners, from reading the other reviews here, LOL!), and I threw it out, but now I keep my current ones standing upright wherever possible and they are fine. That said, I won't spend too much money or effort getting them if they were not available cheaply here. Get the JTs instead if the prices are comparable, as JTs are about double the size and come in much better quality tubes.
Gives a pretty sheer orange tint on the tips. I'm a FFF and this makes me look very fresh and natural used with a peachy blusher.
The colours are lovely, but I just had to mention that these glosses leave a dry opaque film on my lips after an hour or so. I have to use a tissue to rub it off vigorously before reapplying the gloss. If I reapply without doing that, it looks uneven and feels yucky.
Toffee is a neutral medium caramel colour. I am a FFF and this is a great understated colour for work. I use it when I need to look 'serious'and proffesional, and the shine keeps the look fresh and up-to-date.

I threw mine out after 3 months! The smell in the beginning didn't bother me that much, but after a few uses, it just stank like hell! I was really grossed out by the applicator too, somehow I kept thinking that everytime I used it I was scrubbing all the dead skin off my lips and onto the applicator! Eewwww!! Will never repurchase.

A very sexy sheer red! Attention-grabbing but not over-powering. Love it!
The first tube I bought, the mascara brush broke off inside the tube after only 2 uses. I returned it and got a replacement. I have the black one and it wears very well, no flaking or smudging which is usually a big problem for me. The wand is a bit long and it's quite tricky to get the lashes at the outer corners. Overall it is a good mascara.
This is a very pretty peachy pink with light shimmer that shows up on my skin as a soft glow. It's a sophisticated look and great for day or night. I'm very glad I bought this colour! However, the packaging could be a lot better (see my review on Glow-On Blush).
The shades are amazing, but the packaging is totally crap! It's an awkward slim rectangle shape and I have to press my blusher brush against it from several angles just to get an even coverage. Also, the powder seems rather loosely packed and I end up picking up way too much or it spills all over the sides. Very messy to use. It would be so much better in a round shape.
I got this without trying it first, and it was a mistake! It doesn't fit my eyelids and when I try to press closer to get at my lashes, it leaves my eyelids with two small indentations on either sides. I also cannot 'walk' it out from the roots of my lashes to produce a natural-looking curl like I was able to with my old Body Shop curler. So I can only crimp my lashes with this and they stick straight upwards. Most unnatural! Must try before you buy!
