    i buy a lot of coral everything, and a lot of gold eyeshadow.

  2. Leslie V

    blue eyeshadow, I buy it as if i were mimi from drew carey

  3. Diane

    Every neutral e/s by mac no matter the finish… Any MLBB lipstick, and all the red nail polishes… Especially the bright tomato-y colored ones! Glad I’m
    not the only sick/dedicated one!

  4. LU

    I’m always buying gold/nude/brown/bronze, anything neutral!

  5. leesie

    I buy eyeshadow more than anything else, and I’m instantly attracted to anything remotely teal or turquoise. More broadly, most single shadows I buy are somewhere on the color spectrum from blue to green. Lately I’ve been trying to collect more pinks, though.

  6. Alannah

    Plum lip colours–I can’t seem to get enough of them!

  7. Alannah

    Oh, and also any & every green eyeliner and green/blue/purple nail polishes!

  8. Teal anything! Every time I go shopping I always pick up any sort of teal or aqua or turquoise liner/shadow before realizing that I should probably fill my kit with other colors first. The same with nail polishes! Although now I’m working on building the purple in my nail polish collection. Here we go!

  9. Girlygirl70

    Exactly. I’m obsessed with Pewter eyeshadows and i have so many taupes and browns!

  10. amy

    Purple eyeshadows, hot pink lipglosses and lipsticks and peachy coral lippies as well.

  11. Mary

    Always red nailpolishes, and purplish-mauve-taupe eyeshadows, and I can’t get enough of neutral e/s like in Naked UD palette :)

  12. kat

    Pretty much anything purple. Purple eye shashadow, nail polish, pretty much anything.

  13. monica

  14. Jeng lipana

    Neutrals shade, any shade of browns I can found, I also love champange color, they are my all time fav. Yesterday,I just bought from the Balm, luscious lani and mischievous Marissa, so happy

  15. Vijaya

    Purple lipstick. Purple eyeshadow, too, but mostly purple lipstick.

    I also have more matte black eyeshadow than I can ever use, but that can be partially attributed to almost every Kat Von D palette having a ‘Lucifer’.

  16. Deb

    I had a teal eyeshadow thing when I first got into makeup, so I have about 6 different brands and multiple finishes in teal. These days, I gravitate toward blue-pink lipsticks.

  17. Arduinna4

    Anything purple!And i’m not talking only about the product but about the packaging too!

  18. Vita

    Taupe eyeshadows!

  19. Jaime

    I am CONSTANTLY buying nude lip glosses. I don’t know what it is, I’m just always looking for the perfect nude lip.

    For eyeshadows, I’m obsessed with purples and blues. OBSESSED, I tell you.

  20. jess

    lilac shadows. must have 50 of them. find that a lilac is flattering to a hazel eye…..

  34. lasekou

    Chanel Glossimers. I don’t know why I’m so addicted to them. The MA’s at the Chanel counter call me their gloss diva.

    This is easy: peach/coral lip colors, and brown eye shadows in just about any shade. It’s an illness, but I don’t want to be cured.

    Every possible shade of lavender and blue nail polish must be mine!

  45. kenzie.

    Neutral eyeshadows. ESPECIALLY taupes. I love taupes…..

    And sheer red glosses or lipsticks. I love them. Not too much change to my natural lip color (I’m super-pale and have really rosy cheeks and lips) but adds a bit of shine….

    Bronzy-gold eyeshadows and neutral-pinky lipglosses and lipsticks.
