I have light/medium olive skin.
The last eyeshadow palette I bought was the Tarte Rainforest of the Sea. I got it a week ago but just finally used a couple shades today. Even though all the colours are shimmery, I only used that for my eyes today and really like the results so far.
For me lip products are usually just a good lip balm. I feel really weird with any colour on my lips but I did buy a Stila Stay All Day Liquid Lipstick in Caramello last night. I’m wearing it today and so far so good. It’s a very nude colour so it’s not that weird for me. Even though I’m liking it, I can almost 100% say that I won’t buy any more.
The last skincare item I picked up was the Garnier cleansing waters. I’ve been using Bioderma for many years and don’t know why I thought anything could ever come close to it. The Garnier is fine, but it doesn’t remove my eye makeup nearly as well. No thanks. I passed it on to my sister since she barely wears makeup at all.

The last skincare product you bought? I think I most recently replaced my day cream, which is the Trader Joe’s facial moisturizer with spf. It’s so hard to find a reasonably priced and comfortable moisturizer with non-chemical spf, so I am sticking with it!

The last skincare product you bought? Curel ultra healing lotion. I need to buy a new Albertini pumpkin mask though I finished mine this week.

How are you feeling about Marshmallow? I am NC-15, pretty solid, but I do have some neutral tones in my skin. My husband thinks it makes me look weird, but I am used to these new shades that are grey-ish, fun colored and kind of like it. Thoughts?

Profile photo of Alice

It IS kind of a “make-you-look-dead” shade on pale skin, but that’s kind of what I’m going for when I wear it, so I love it 🙂

I also really like the Marshmallow pencil for under lavender & lighter purple lipsticks like NYX Playdate, OCC Rollergirl, and Tom Ford Stavros.

Your skin tone/coloring: Fairest neutral. Bobbi Brown Skin Foundation in 00 Alabaster, Koh Gen Do Maifanshi Moisture Foundation in 001 and Make Up For Ever Mat Velvet + Foundation in #15 Alabaster etc.

The last eyeshadow palette you bought? The Too Faced Semi-Sweet Chocolate Bar palette. The shade Licorice had however shattered a bit and it was such a mess to clean up. I was a bit underwhelmed at the performance of the eyeshadows in general but it’s a nice enough palette so I will continue to use it.

The last lip product you bought? Urban Decay Revolution Lipstick in Fiend. I bought it online and in all the swatches I’d seen it seemed to be more pink than it turned out to be when I received it! Maybe it’s just my colouring though and the fact that my lips are quite pigmented but on me it looked very brown. However, I decided that I liked it anyway so I kept it!

The last skincare product you bought? More eye makeup remover. Does that count? It’s really inexpensive and really good! It’s the Nivea Daily Essentials Double Effect Eye Make-Up Remover. They do another one but I don’t think it’s as good.
If that doesn’t count then it would have to be Origins Modern Friction. I used it years ago and wasn’t too impressed. This time around though I was advised to use it on dry skin first for more intense exfoliation and now I love it! Definitely a favourite now. 😊

Skin tone coloring: Light/golden Last eyeshadow palette I bought: Kat Von D Shade and Light Eye Last lip product I bought: Burt’s Bees Lipstick in Juniper Water Last skincare product I bought: Tarte Tarteguard Sunscreen Lotion SPF 30

Your skin tone/coloring: Very fair with neutral undertones, N10-N13; magenta/red hair; hazel/green eyes.

The last eyeshadow palette you bought? Too Faced Peanut Butter and Jelly. Thankfully, the PB & choc. scent is very light.

The last lip product you bought? ColourPop Ultra Satin Lips in Marshmellow and Petit Four, along with their matching pencils. I like this formula much better than the Ultra Matte.

The last skincare product you bought? Yesterday I ordered a new jar of Eslor Firming Collegan Day Cream.

May I ask, what do you think of the Cargo palette? I’ve been eyeing that one for months but I’ve heard such mixed reviews about it I never felt comfortable buying it.

I haven’t tried every single shade yet, but so far I’m loving it! The shadows are on the more subtle side (not UD or Lorac intensity), but they’re super flattering and have a beautiful shimmer that’s not over-the-top. With the shades I’ve tried I’ve also had ZERO fallout, despite building them up. Some of the colors in this palette are really unique (like Bridge). So overall so far I’d recommend it as long as you know it’s not the most pigmented formula!

Your skin tone/coloring: Cool-toned and pale

The last eyeshadow palette you bought? I haven’t picked up a palette since Naked 2 Basics. I still pull out the gray shade and the highlight once in a while, but these days I mostly stick with the cooler-toned singles from ColourPop. I’m not weeping over the lack of cooler palettes out there, but still. I’d love a wider selection of grays and medium lavenders.

The last lip product you bought? Last night I spotted a Revlon balm stain in Lovesick (one of my fave daytime shades) in the clearance bin. I thought $4 was a great price for a color that’s always sold out in stores. It rang up for a penny! It’s not being discontinued either. Weird but fun!

The last skincare product you bought? Burt’s Bees cleansing oil. I was skeptical (I have oily skin already) but it’s been making a huge difference! I smooth it over my skin when it’s dry and then rinse it off with my CeraVe foaming cleanser.
