Awful product. Very thin and hard to apply without lines. I have used this several times and it has not once looked acceptable. Dries on the nail within about three brush strokes and clumps. Complete waste of 3 euro.

This is a very cheap, very nice BB cream... IF you are super pale. It has a violet undertone. This corrects out any unevenness in my skintone and removes redness. If I were to go back to Singapore this is the one I would stock up on. It does have a shimmer, you have been warned. This may cause you to break out, so read the ingredients carefully and decide for yourself, despite the claim of "anti acne" which doesn't even make sense.
This is ok. It does not go on evenly, the mixture is some kind of suspension and clumps of colour within the gel are separate, causing all kinds of uneven application problems. Apart from that it works as a very nice tinted moisturiser.

This is magic, just like the face balm. It can be used as an eye primer or alone as a treatment.
This is magic. It evens out my skin tone, adds brightness. I don't even need to wear makeup if I put this on, no joke. This is a wonderful primer, on par with BB cream. Pity about the expense, though.
I love aspirin masks! I crush four or five uncoated aspirin with a little warm water and spread all over my face for five minutes, then scrub it in and rinse off. I look AMAZING afterward. I have tried mixing it in with a little cleanser or honey but I find this reduces the effectiveness. This will increase your suceptibillity to sunburn so be careful. I use this two or three times a week.
This is a pretty mediocre mascara. It goes on well, minimal clumps. The bottle is of terrible design, every time you put the wand back in the container mascara is pushed off the brush and wasted, not good for a bottle that contains so little product in the first place. It flakes. like. crazy. Doesn't smudge, easy to wash off but FLAKES all over my cheeks at work- very unprofessional! Would not buy again.
The good: I love that this comes with a separate cap so you can keep the wand clean. The not so good: This stuff is a pain to put on. It clumps and looks ugly. It neither lengthens nor thickens, just makes your eyes look as if you put some cheap mascara on that morning. The rubber brush is a load of hype, it isn't as good or as bad as standard brushes. I would not buy again, if I put mascara on I want my eyes to look good, not cheap.
Ugh. This seems like a good eyeliner. I bought the brown, and the colour is perfect. Easily glides on (people having trouble with tugging, draw a line on the back of your hand to warm up the pencil. Once is draws easily and smoothly, start on your lash line) and smudges adequately. So far, the perfect eyeliner. However, five minuted after you put it on, its all over the place. This stuff dissolves in tears. No I was not crying, the mere moisture of a normal eye with make this stuff run. I apply only to the top line, not the bottom and within an hour my bottom line will have smudges of brown, and within a few more hours my undereyes will have more smudges, despite me having put no eyeliner on my lower lids. Were this a waterproof, smudge proof formula I would give it five lippies but it is stupid and a waste of money to have such an easily removable product.
This stuff is strong! Too dark as a blush for me, but makes a great lip colour, and with care a good eyeshadow too.
This is quite a strong colour. You need to be skilled at applying blush for this to look good. It has strong peach and pale orange tones, and can easily look clownish. I dilute mine with some leftover "Sandy Fair" foundation that didn't quite match my skin.
This is my everyday eyeshadow. I don't use a crease or highlighter, just this shadow with a bit of foundation, concealer and I am good to go. I like that I can get two looks in one with this shadow. If I apply it softly, and with a light hand it goes on very pale and shimmery, very similar to the swatch on this page. If I blend it in really well I end up with a darker, more peachy shade without so much shimmer. This shade is peach based, and brings out my blue eyes wonderfully. I have definitely found my HG eyeshadow for day to day wear. NOTE: the EM eyeshadow "Funnel Cake" is almost identical to "Baby Bath", only slightly darker. If I put Funnel Cake in the crease and Baby Bath on the lid I cannot tell the difference between the two. If you are not so pale as me (Olive Fair) I would recommend Funnel Cake. Funnel Cake, when buffed in, has a much stronger orange undertone to it (but in a good way!) It REALLY makes my blue eyes pop.
This is an okay undereye concealer, highlighter and general brightener. If you have extremely dark eye circles this may not work for you. It is not quite strong enough for me, once I put enough on to cover the circles I look caked up. The powder is a tad too shimmery and sparkly. As a face brightener this is wonderful, especially on my Light Olive skin. I would repurchase.
This is a bizarre corrector. It is highly pigmented, to the point of blush. I am not quite sure what it was meant for. Applied over eye circles it turns into a pink purple shade, which would be very pretty were it over the eye, not under it. Applied to redness or blemishes it merely darkens and pinkens them. As a blush it kind of fades into the skin, making me look as if someone with very accurate aim hit me on either side of the head. Applied all over as a brightener (as the copy suggests) it makes me look... pink purple. I have no idea what this is intended for and I would most definitely not buy it again.
At last someone has realised that pale people can have an olive undertone! This is an excellent shade for those who are extremely pale with much redness (ie red nose, chin). The intensive formula is unfortunately not quite intensive enough. It does not build well, looking cakey after two or more layers. Packaging, as with all EM products, sucks. Staying power is non existent, and I often have to reapply mid day. This does not leave me looking cakey, however, as most of the morning makeup has rubbed off. Would buy again, if only for the fact that this is the only shade that has every matched me.
