    Your skin tone/coloring:

    Fair Skin with Neutral Skintone, (Nars Mont Blanc, Guerlain Lingerie 01. Chanteacaille alabaster, Chanel 12 Beige Rose, MAC NW15),
    with oily+acne-prone skin :’(

    Best long-wearing eyeliner?

    MUFE Aqua Black, excellent eye gel/cream eyeliner.
    Etude House (Korean Brand) Oh m’ Eye Line Liquid Eyeliner.(around USD$7)
    One day I argued with my bf, then I cried crazily…but nothing was off..My liner was still perfect!! verrry impressed. It’s very BLACK and easy to apply. (After cry&whole day).’cause I live in HK, there are many korean brands everywhere, cheap and good valued. This is my HG liquid eyeliner.
    For pencils, I voted for UD 24/7 and Nars Larger than life eyeliner pencil.

    Best long-wearing foundation?

    These days I’m addicted to Guerlain Lingerie Liquid..Quite long-lasting and beautiful finish.
    (humid weather, 32degrees)
    Chanteacaille Future skin.. I love the color shade..it’s Perfect for me, Not too yellowish or too pink
    But I think Chanel mat lumiere perfection compact foundation is the most long-lasting..sadly in some lighting I saw a little white mask on my face..not as natural as Guerlain’s..
    In my opinion, to make a long-wearing makeup, the most important is to prepare well and use a suitable primer.

    Best long-wearing blush?

    I looove Chanel & NArs blush, very flattering and long-lasting, MAC is a bit shorter.
    I wanna buy Tom ford but they don’t have any shade that attracts me..(I own too many different shades).Only tried on counter, very good texture ! Mr. ford.
    OH! Le Metier de Beaute is fantastic too. romeo & juilet is a wonderful product for light complexion or pink lovers.(I’m not a coral or orange lover)

  6. Your skin tone/coloring: Fair with neutral to pink undertones. Chanel BR-12 in Vitalumiere Aqua foundation (Probably MAC NW-15 ish)

    Best long-wearing eyeliner?Smashbox Limitless Liner in Onyx is pretty decent, and then any of the UD 24/7 liners are great.

    Best long-wearing foundation? Revlon Colorstay (oily). I have dry to combo skin, so this stuff lasts forever.

    Best long-wearing blush? Tarte’s Blushing Bride in the powder formulation. I’m extremely fair and this is a pretty deep color, so that combined with the formula makes the color last forever on my skin.

  9. Smidge

    I’m light to fair-skinned, and while I’ve had decent success with longer lasting foundation and blush, I really have to give it up to Jemma Kidd’s liquid eyeliner that has since been discontinued and was carried at Target. I have used dozens of long-lasting eyeliners and they’ve all done very well, but this stuff is ROAD TAR. It takes a while to set and feels kind of greasy until it does, but you’ve got to really rub at it to remove it and I’ve worked twelve-hour shifts in a demanding food service job with it coming out completely unchanged, even after sweating and doing messy dishes! I’m utterly heartbroken that it’s discontinued. It’s my Chanel Dragon!

  17. adele

    Your skin tone/coloring: Very fair, warm undertones.
    Best long-wearing eyeliner? To be honest, I don’t wear eyeliner much. But I’ve had good experiences with the Bobbi Brown gel eyeliners.
    Best long-wearing foundation? I’d have to say Bobbi Brown Stick foundation, but I haven’t got on with much else because the colour ranges of most companies are much too dark/orange for me!
    Best long-wearing blush? Tarte Amazonian Clay!

  18. Your skin tone/coloring: Fair and cool ~ (Urban Decay NAKED Foudation in 0.5)
    Best long-wearing eyeliner?: Urban Decay Glide On 24/7 Eyeliner pencils, Physician’s Formula Lash Booster 2-in-1 Eyeliner & Serum (some name along these lines) liquid liner. This is also the only liquid liner I can wear since its hypoallergenic; the others I’ve tried so far have irritated my eyes. It stays on nicely but can get rubbed away easily or if I really start crying!
    Best long-wearing foundation?: I’d say my SKIN79 Super+ Hot Pink BB stays on my (currently) combo-oily skin!
    Best long-wearing blush?: I don’t wear blush very much :D

    • Gemma W

      i used to like skin79 (hotpink) too
      It’s good but a little heavy for skin.
      And there are many other brands’ bb creams which are much much better.

      • It might be heavy for your skin specifically but its fine for my skin in the summer. Its made for oily and acne prone skin, as well as it blends in perfectly, which is normally a big problem because I’m so pale. Since a lot of Korean BBs have one or two, maybe even three colors, I’d have to go find samples or try to find the full-size of a specific color–something that’s not super easy to do on the Internet. Plus, since there’s so much varying SPF and various levels of titanium dioxide are used for many, I could get a severe breakout as an allergic reaction.

  19. Your skin tone/coloring: NW35
    Best long-wearing eyeliner? UD 24-7 Liner in Perversion
    Best long-wearing foundation? I actually mix MAC’s PLW Concealer with Careblend Oil so it stays on all day but looks soft and 2nd skin like.
    Best long-wearing blush? MAC Stay Pretty

  20. CeeBee

    Your skin tone/coloring: Light medium with warm yellow undertones

  29. Avatar of Catherine Catherine

    Your skin tone/coloring: Light with pink undertones, more neutral than cool or warm.
    Best long-wearing eyeliner: Either the Stila waterproof liquid eyeliner pen or Kat Von D’s liquid eye liner pens, theyre literally the same product but Kat Von D’s a few bucks cheaper.
    Best long-wearing foundation: I dont use foundation, I just wear a bb cream. Ive been loving my Dr. Jart+ Premium bb cream with 45 spf. Its lasting me forever and doesnt break out my oil and acne prone skin. <3
    Best long-wearing blush: Tarte's amazonian 24 hour blushes are the best hands down.

    Best long-wearing foundation? Kat Von D foundation

    Best long-wearing blush? Kat Von D Heartagram in particular, but her other blushes last on me nicely as well and MAC Mineralize Blush in Style Demon – idk why that one (probably because it’s super pigmented and I’m very fair?) lasts all day even though the other mineralize blushes don’t.

  34. Avatar of Amy xamyx

    Skin: Light, neutral.

    Eyeliner: Essence Longwear pencil; I’ve been wearing this on my waterline the past few weeks, and I walk an average of 2 miles a day, and even in 85+° F weather, this does not budge. Most pencils (including UD 24/7) slide right of within an hour, but the Essence stays until I take it off. As for liquid liners, UD 24/7 Waterproof Liquid Eyeliner; it can withstand a 12-hour Summer day at Disneyland, complete with multiple runs on Splash Mountain.

    Foundation: It really depends on what I’m wearing under it, the weather, my level of physical activity, etc. What worked for me when I had a bank job, sitting down in an air-conditioned space, doesn’t work for me, now. I spend alot more time outdoors, and therefore wear more/heavier SPF. My activity level is also higher, so I definitely needed to switch. Before I worked in a bank, I worked a night-shift in a restaurant, so although no SPF was needed, I still required a different foundation than what I used at the bank.

    Blush: Again, there are many variables. If my foundation breaks down, no matter what blush I’m wearing, it won’t stay. I’ve used many foundations over the years, and while I loved some, they didn’t quite mesh with my chemistry. I don’t judge the “wear-time” of a blush, since I find they all work better (or worse) given a specific foundation, and/or environment.

  35. Your skin tone/coloring: Ultra Fair (NARS Siberia)
    Best long-wearing eyeliner? Jesse’s Girl Waterproof Liquid Eyeliner. This doesn’t budge on me, which is a miracle with my hooded eyes and oily lids.
    Best long-wearing foundation? Good question! I’m not sure what the longest wearing foundation is on my skin these days. Maybe Illamasqua Skin Base (I use a mix of 1 and 4, though 2 works well too).
    Best long-wearing blush? tarte Captivated from the Aqualillies palette.

  36. Nikki

    Your skin tone/coloring: Light (NC 20-25), pink undertones
    Best long-wearing eyeliner? Miliani liquify
    Best long-wearing foundation? Revlon Colorstay, Revlon Colorstay whipped
    Best long-wearing blush? MAC- Warm Soul

  37. Your skin tone/coloring: Light with cool undertones (UD Naked 3.5)
    Best long-wearing eyeliner? For my waterline, Bobbi Brown Gel Eyeliner. It lasts about an hour or so before I have to touch it up. For my lash line, either the Bobbi Brown Gel Eyeliner or the Kat Von D liquid liner. The chiseled felt-tip one.
    Best long-wearing foundation? I’ve only ever used three. xD UD Naked Skin foundation lasts the longest on me.
    Best long-wearing blush? Only used one. =P
