These are 3 different products.

Left is Dior bb cream 
Too light in color for all over the face.  I like to use this when I'm paler but it can be a bit pink looking.  Easily solved with a powder. 
I love the finish and texture.  It does have a fragrance.

Middle is Bourjois Healthy Mix in 53 
Lightweight, blends well.
Too dark except for forehead.  Not too keen on the smell.  Floral scent and lingers.
I have been using this with MAQUILLAGE Treatment Lasting Compact because they layer well.
It is too dark with a pink undertone and it looked like a blush when I first swatched it on my cheek.

On the right is Shiseido MAQUILLAGE Treatment Lasting Compact UV Foundation OC 10 
This is a cream, it can be too pale if applied with a heavy hand.
It looks amazing all day with RMK Pressed Powder N.
You might want to know that this does darken after being applied when compared to the color in the pan.  It can cover under eye circles.  Very dewy looking.

SUQQU Creamy Glow Lipsticks

I have four Creamy Glow Lipsticks from Suqqu.
I really like the texture and wear of these lipsticks.
No smell or taste to these which I love.

However there are slight differences with the formula between shades.  06 is a lot drier compared to 01. 06 lasts longer but isn't as moisturising. 09 is a lot darker than 06 when worn on the lips.

01 - saebana, 06 - umegasumi, 09 - hanarenka, 18 - karakurenai

I had to adjust the photo to show more true to life colours.  
The difference between 06 and 09 is like...
Let's say I had trouble telling them apart in the tube.

06 umegasumi

09 hanarenka
