    Coloring: Fairly light, very neutral, dark Mediterranen features.

    Collection: Hmmm… I’d have to think back all the way to this past December/January, LOL. I’ll just go with what’s coming out now-tarte; the Eye & Cheek palette is absolutely adorable, and just so handy & convenient. The deep teal gel liner looks promising, as well.

    Blush: I rarely wear “colored” blush, and on the occasion I do, I go for a soft, dusty pink. Currently, I’m loving L’Oreal Sultry Raven’s Blush from the original Project Runway collection.

    Lip: Again, soft pinks such as Rimmel Airy Fairy, Maybelline Born With It, L’Oreal Pink Nude.

    Favorite spring lip color? In the Spring I’m a big lipgloss fanatic. Gives you a light, translucent color for Spring, unlike lipstick. My favorite go-to’s are Too faced Pink Swan (discontinued) and Stila’s Apricot. Sometimes Urban Decay’s Love Junkie for a slightly darker color.

  38. ☯ Your skin tone/coloring: NC-20 ish
    ☯ Favorite spring collection: No single collection did it for me. I found myself picking and choosing a few goodies, mostly lip products, without feeling ‘must-have’ on any particular collection as a whole. I really enjoy Estee Lauder’s Mad Men Collection, although not a spring collection per se, I think it captures a fresh and lively spring feel perfectly.
    ☯ Favorite spring blush? Along with the Mad Men blush, I would choose either TF Lovelust or Chanel JC Rose Initiale
    ☯ Favorite spring lip color? MAC Show Orchid

    Favorite spring collection?: I’m looking forward to the new Zoya Pixie Dust colors, but I think that’s their collection for summer. I can’t remember what all has come out for the spring season.

    Favorite spring blush?: NARS Gilda! I also love to pull out NARS Mata Hari a lot in the spring, and I also try to make use of my peachy/coral-pinks like NARS Orgasm and Amour.

    Favorite spring lip color? I can’t pick just one! I love warm reds, brighter pinks, corals, peaches, and a some lavender shades for spring and summer. I’ll opt for one of these colors either in an opaque lipstick, a sheer jelly lip color, or a tinted balm.

I have yet to buy, but am flipping out over all the new Dior Addict Glosses and Lipsticks. Also can’t wait for the new Chanel Rouge Coco Shines. They look ridiculously pretty. Oh dear.

    Spring lipstick: just got Georgio Armani 109, comes out a peachy bronze on me, love it, brighter than my usual browns but not too much to compete with my redhead coloring, must find a blush to match, just recently discovered Armani makeup and am very impressed with the quality, just wish the foundation didn’t have fragrance, but it doesn’t seem to last, now my skin just needs to decide which shade it is, haven’t tried the new shades yet, saw there was a 4.25!
