    - midtone pink/tan lipsticks (don’t really think nudes or bolds look good on me)

  14. Purple eyeshadows!!! I cant resist.

  15. I can’t stop buying MAC eyeshadows, as I’ve gone a little palette obsessed. And Dermalogica skincare.

    I used to buy every shade of blue & teal eye shadow I could find. But unfortunately they’re really unflattering on me lol so once I learned that I stopped.

    Now I buy lipsticks like it’s nobody’s business. Mostly pinks and nude’s.

  32. nmnikki

    aaaahhhhh!!! no more orangy peaches i keep telling myself…

  33. SiaM

    I have to say that taupes, greys, and nudes are my weaknesses. I have a lot of taupe,gold, mint, grey and nude polishes, and if I see a new polish(in that range of colors) that I have not tried, I will be inclined to get it, even if the difference is not that much. With lipsticks I usually go with colors in the nude family, but your lip posts for the seasons definitely help me break that habit.

  34. Maya

    Oh Yeah!
    I Can’t resist a new taupe eyeshadow…
    And I Check any kind of purple and green :)

  35. Nude Lipsticks and Nail Polishes. Champagne Eyeshadows and Lipsticks. For non-makeup related items I collect Leopard print handbags and shoes.

  36. Carrie Ann

    Peach and coral lip glosses, lipsticks & blushes, and brown, teal, gold & champagne eye shadows. I also have a lot of different black, brown, purple & olive green eyeliners.

  37. Deep Truth kind of shades, Freshwater dupes, shimmermoss dupes and bronze dupes… I have so many.. and for lip products it’s always milky pink glosses with silver sparkle… :(

  38. Mariana

    browns (paintpots, shadesticks, eyeshadows, etc.) and pewter/taupe colors as well. I just love natural smokey eyes!

  39. I don’t buy as much as I just seem to keep seeking these colours out – and then I remind myself I don’t need that many of them (colour products).

    I’m always looking at foundations, blue eyeshadows, red lipsticks and bright pink blushes…

  40. I think I can see patterns in my buying of:
    - blue based fushia and red lipsticks
    - taupe, pewter and bronze eyeshadows
    - peach blushes

  41. Maria

    I am fun with mascaras and eyebrow pencils!

  42. Ilaria

    mauve lipsticks and taupe eyeshadows!

  43. Diana

    Red lipsticks. Teal/sea green eyeshadow.

  44. Purple eye shadows! I love purple, I’m an artist, and a makeup fanatic, which means I can *totally* tell that there are differences between each and every purple shadow!! …even if other people can’t! LOL! *cringe*

  45. Eta

    Chanel. Sorry. Can’t skip the counter. Disregard colour or product. I HAVE TO CHECK EVERY TIME.

    Purple everything! I have however made an effort to stop purchasing purple products in the hopes of finding new colours that work well with my skin tone.

  53. Christina

    Red nailpolishes!!!
    And coral lipsticks:-)

  54. Chelsea

    Red lipsticks, coral lipsticks and glosses, and taupe eye shadows are my weaknesses. Of those three, I’m better able to control myself when it comes to corals and taupes. As for red lipstick, there’s no stopping me!

  55. Margot

    coral lipglosses and lipsticks ! I can’t get enough coral lip stuff. Plus I’m still looking for THE perfect coral.

  56. Avatar of Evelyn Evelyn

  63. Charlene

    Purples, blacks, whites, silvers, greys, are my weakness.

    Purple or red, lipsticks. too

  64. Keren

    For me it’s purple eyeshadows… although I probably have (almost) every possible shade of this colour, it’s always the first colour my eyes are drawn to when I enter a cosmetics store!

  65. Avatar of Etaoin Etaoin

    yeah taupe eyeshadows, they are great for cool toned skintones. also nail polish in all colours!

  66. Lipglosses…. And then I hardly ever use them because I don’t like the feel of it on my lips!!
    And every kind of new mascara that gets advertized. And more often than not I am totally disappointed with them and they just sit there in my make-up boxes. :)

  67. Corals! I love coral shades! :D

  68. Avatar of Marianne Mar

    I have this thing for red lipstick…

    I always gravitate towards nude beige, peach and coral shades when it comes to lipstick and peach and coral shades on blushes, while I like blue-ish, teal and green when it comes to eyeshadows.

  73. ledonatela

    Every variation of pink or nauve for lips and taupe or grey for eyes.

  91. Chau

    grey family eyeshadows, pink tone lipstick and peachy blush

  92. Dani

    I’ve recently stopped doing this but I use to be obsessed with buying turquoise or teal eye shadows.

    coral lipglosses & gold-red eyeshadows. Cannot resist.

  98. Elsa

    champagne-y eyeshadows…

  99. Avatar of Pamela Pamela

    Pretty much the same as you, Christine: coral lipsticks (for summer), green and gold eye colors. I also collect shadows in: browns, oranges, corals, yellow, copper and bronze. I guess coral is my “thing” because I always get lipsticks, nail colors, blush and shadow in that family. Orange and brown lipsticks, too.
