    Skintone/Coloring: Fairly light, very neutral; dark-featured.

    Skimp: Lip products, foundation, mascara-pretty much anything besides eyeshadow.

    Splurge: Besides eyeshadow, I’d be willing to splurge on a truly amazing contour product, if one existed…

    Trying: I’ve all but given up on finding HG contour products, but until recently, that was my obsession. I have many that “work”, but nothing mind-blowing, and between the cost & lack of space, I’m done trying…

    Your skin tone/coloring: Light, neutral dark features
    Type of beauty products you skimp on? Nail polish and tools- I don’t see the point of spending $25 on a nail polish when I can get 3+ colors for that price. Plus I tend to like Essie/OPI better than most high end anyway

    Type of beauty products you can’t stop trying? Concealer and foundation!!!

  16. ■Your skin tone/coloring: C3/NC20

    ■Type of beauty products you splurge on? Face base cosmetics, like it be foundation, powder, blush, etc. Not a huge spender on skincare though.
    ■Type of beauty products you can’t stop trying? Foundation! It’s the most important in my opinion because it’s the product that goes on the biggest area (your face!) The right foundation can take you from zero to hero! lol Still on the hunt for my HG foundation though… The struggle.

  23. Danielle

    Your skin tone/coloring: Medium/Neutral.
    Type of beauty products you skimp on? Definetly mascara. There are so many great drugstore mascaras, I rarely feel the need to splurge on it. That being said I do think the Dior Show Maximizer primer is absolutely worth it.
    Type of beauty products you splurge on? Skincare.
    Type of beauty products you can’t stop trying? Eyeshadow! Especially palettes. And nail polish, defintely a nail polish addiction. I have waaaaay more eyeshadow and nail polish then I could ever use in a lifetime.

    Type of beauty products you skimp on? Mascara and skin care
    Type of beauty products you splurge on? Everything else!
    Type of beauty products you can’t stop trying? Lipsticks and glosses

  25. Your skin tone/coloring: pale (and getting paler), cool toned
    Type of beauty products you skimp on? Nail polish remover (honestly, that is the ONLY thing where I don’t have both high priced and lower priced products; everything else, I totally splurge if it’s something I really want)
    Type of beauty products you splurge on? Everything – skin care and colour cosmetics, foundation, setting powder….all of it! Which isn’t to say that I don’t also have and like using lower priced products.
    Type of beauty products you can’t stop trying? Eye shadows! I bought 21 eye shadows last week (if you count the numbers in the Chocolate Bar palette and the duos as well as the single shadow).Eye shadow is my weakness (followed by foundations/BB/CC creams)

    I really need a 12-step program, though I’d rather have a 12 pan eye shadow palette!

  26. Your skin tone/coloring: Very fair, neutral.
    Type of beauty products you skimp on? Mascara and eyeliner. I splurge on lipsticks less often than other things, too… so lipsticks I suppose.
    Type of beauty products you splurge on? Skin care products (cleanser, moisturizer, facial oil); foundation; finishing powders; blush
    Type of beauty products you can’t stop trying? Foundation, blushes, all kinds of face powders (highlighters/bronzers/finishing powders). I’m still trying to seek out the perfect look! Right now I’m playing a lot with Too Faced Milk Chocolate Soleil and Becca Shimmering Skin Perfector Pressed in Moonstone… I really want to try Guerlain Lingerie de Peau foundation, but I have no vendors near me that sell Guerlain so I have no idea how I’ll pick up a sample or figure out my shade. :-(

  27. ◾Your skin tone/coloring: NC30
    ◾Type of beauty products you skimp on? Usually lip balm, but I’ve been curious about some higher end ones.
    ◾Type of beauty products you splurge on? Almost everything… but lip balm LOL
    ◾Type of beauty products you can’t stop trying? Everything. I love all types of products, but I have an over abundance of blush and eye shadows and lippies. I’ve reduced my base product collection and I’m still working on reducing it further.

  28. Your skin tone/coloring: UD Naked Skin in 9/10, NARS Sheer Glow in Macao, Hourglass Immaculate in Chestnut
    Type of beauty products you skimp on?: Mascaras – you have to replace them so often, I figure it makes sense just to buy drugstore ones.
    Type of beauty products you splurge on?: Foundation and skincare. I’m a little bit crazy about getting my skin to look its best.
    Type of beauty products you can’t stop trying?: Lip balms!! Even though nothing beats the Smith’s Rose Salve for me, I keep trying new and pricier ones – Sarah Happ’s Lip Slip, Nuxe Reve de Miel, Dior Creme de Rose, Fresh Sugar Lip Balm…the list goes on, but none of them beat my Smith’s!

  39. Avatar of Veronica Veronica

    Your skin tone/coloring: NW10/15
    Type of beauty products you skimp on? Mascara is the big one. I don’t necessarily skimp on concealer, either, but there are several drug store formulas I like enough to keep on hand.
    Type of beauty products you splurge on? What products *don’t* I splurge on is the better question. :P I’d say lipstick and foundation are the formulas I’m willing to go the distance on.
    Type of beauty products you can’t stop trying? Lipstick is my cosmetic kryptonite. :P

  40. Your skin tone/coloring: Fairest, neutral with a touch of yellow.
    Type of beauty products you skimp on? Mascara and eyeliner. I’ve discovered ones comparable to high-end products but at a much more reasonable price. They work for me so I’m not going to spend more than I have to to get the look I want.
    Type of beauty products you splurge on? Lipstick. I’m a little bit obsessed! Guerlain is my favourite lipstick brand. My excuse is that I have very dry, picky lips that flake and shrivel up a at just the sight of most lipsticks. :P
    Type of beauty products you can’t stop trying? Again, lipstick. I’m always on the lookout for shades I don’t have or replacing lipsticks that don’t work for me with another better formula lipstick in the same shade. Foundation as well. I’m determined to find my perfect foundation one of these days! Ideally one where I don’t need to mix with a white foundation to get it to match my skin.

  41. Michelle Reece

    Skin tone/coloring: fair & neutral
    Skimp: blushes, bronzers, luminizers/highlighters, brow pencils. Bah! Can’t seem to make anything stay on my face for long. :(

    Type of beauty products you splurge on? Foundation, eyeshadow and blush. More often than not, I’ve been disappointed with drugstore choices.
    Type of beauty products you can’t stop trying? Eyeshadow, foundation, blush.

    • Avatar of Lauren Lauren

      Oh yeah, and lip products. I rarely buy high end lipstick. I bought 2 Fresh tinted lip balms last month and was so sad to spend $22 each on lipstick. BUT I have such severe dry lips that I really had no choice. Thanks to the darn birthday sample, I found out how awesome the fresh balms are and I can’t find anything in the drugstore (tinted) that is as good. Generally, I get my high end lip products in sets. Otherwise, I buy drugstore.

  68. Avatar of Ebony Ebony

    Dark Tan, with golden undertones. (As in Nars Tahoe, Becca Amber, or MUFE 173)

    I’m a bit of a product junkie, so I usually only skimp on foundation primer, and mascara.

    I usually splurge on lipsticks, glosses, and eyeshadows. Especially special edition palettes of eyeshadows.

    At the moment, I can’t seem to stop trying foundations, deeply pigmented lip glosses (think Marc Jacobs), and brushes. Recently fell in love with the Wayne Goss brushes and Real Techniques brushes.
