    Sticky or non-sticky lipgloss? …non-sticky. Why would you want sticky lipgloss?

    Matte or luminous lipstick? Luminous I suppose. I don’t want glitter, but matte can look too harsh against my super pale skin

    Satin or frost eyeshadow? Satin. No real reason other than personal preference.

    Sticky or non-sticky lipgloss? Non-sticky.
    Matte or luminous lipstick? I looooove matte lipsticks!

  6. Amanda Beck

    Your skin tone/coloring: Light/Medium with warm undertones (NC15/20)
    Sticky or non-sticky lipgloss? Non-sticky lipgloss! Otherwise I tend to eat it off my lips. :/
    Matte or luminous lipstick? Matte lipstick for sure. Lasts longer and looks better on my lips.
    Satin or frost eyeshadow? Satin eyeshadows x 1000.

  7. xamyx

    * Fairly light, very neutral; dark-featured.
    * It doesn’t matter; both feel heavy on my lips, and wear-time is comparable with both, so I just choose based on color/appearance.
    * Both; it just depends on my eye look.
    * Again, both; it depends on what lip I want to go with.

    I like to wear contrasting finishes/texures on different features. If I choose a matte lipstick on a given day, I’ll go out of my way to make sure I have some sparkle & shine on my eyes. Conversely, if there is a particular eye look I feel like doing, and the products run more matte/satin, I’ll go with something shimmery and/or glossy. However, if I have to look more conservative, I’ll go with a cream lipstick with a matte/satin eye.

  8. Your skin tone/coloring: NC05

    Sticky or non-sticky lipgloss: Non-sticky
    Matte or luminous lipstick: Matte/creme
    Satin or frost eyeshadow: Both

  13. Your skin tone/coloring: Neutral Fair (I flip between NC and NW depending on the formula)
    Sticky or non-sticky lipgloss? Non sticky all the way. I can live with reapplying if it means my hair doesn’t stick.
    Matte or luminous lipstick? I’ve been a cream or luminous fan for so long, but I’m starting to get hooked on satin finishes now… they just stay so much longer.
    Satin or frost eyeshadow? Depends on my mood. I love a good metallic brown, but every time I want to do a bright look I find myself reaching for my Creme de Couture palette (Sigma Beauty, all matte)

    -Jess

    Sticky or non-sticky lipgloss? non-sticky
    Matte or luminous lipstick? both
    Satin or frost eyeshadow? satin

  19. Rachel P.

    Your skin tone/coloring: Fair, neutral – MAC N2.
    Sticky or non-sticky lipgloss? Non-sticky.
    Matte or luminous lipstick? Matte!
    Satin or frost eyeshadow? Satin.

  20. LU

    Your skin tone/coloring: Medium Neutral Beige
    Sticky or non-sticky lipgloss? Non-sticky
    Matte or luminous lipstick? Cream (think Mac amplified creme) and for matte I prefer cream lipsticks that dry matte and opaque (highly recommend Sephora’s cream lipstain)
    Satin or frost eyeshadow? Definitely satin over frost, but I do also love metallic, glimmery, or shiny finishes such as Mac veluxe pearl or satin, Benefit velvet eyeshadows, or Inglot double sparkle.

  21. ■Your skin tone/coloring: C3/NC20.
    ■Sticky or non-sticky lipgloss? Preferably non-sticky, but will compromise for longer staying power.
    ■Matte or luminous lipstick? MATTE ALL DAY!
    ■Satin or frost eyeshadow? Satin!

  22. Your skin tone/coloring: Light to Medium
    Sticky or non-sticky lipgloss? Not too sticky (I hate when my hair gets stuck to my face or I have to peel my lips apart to open my mouth) but I like it when there’s a little tackiness to it. I don’t believe it’s there if I can’t feel it
    Matte or luminous lipstick? Luminous. But I usually put a gloss over it anyway, so it doesn’t really matter.
    Satin or frost eyeshadow? Satin

  23. Your skin tone/coloring: Fair, cool-toned
    Sticky or non-sticky lipgloss? Non-sticky, for sure
    Matte or luminous lipstick? Matte can look too dry and unappealing on me so I’ll say “luminous”, meaning more moist looking
    Satin or frost eyeshadow? Either. I love shadows with a bit of glow, so satin, sheen or subtle frost are all good with me (for example, I love the sheen finish of “Barefoot” from the Tarte for Aqualilies palette of a few months ago….it has quite a reflective sheen but not chunky or gritty frost)

  24. CeeBee

    Your skin tone/coloring: Light medium with yellow undertones

    Sticky or non-sticky lipgloss? NON Sticky please!

    Matte or luminous lipstick? Luminous, though I do adore a good matte…

    Satin or frost eyeshadow? Satin, all the way baby!

  25. Your skin tone/coloring: Light-medium (NW20-25)

    Sticky or non-sticky lipgloss? Non-sticky!

    Matte or luminous lipstick? The glossier the better (don’t like shimmer/frost/glitter, though). I also prefer it to look very light and thin, almost gel like, on the lips. Not a fan of the thick creamy look.

    Satin or frost eyeshadow? Satin. Although my ideal finish is somewhere in between. A bit more shiny that the typical satin, but not full on frost.

  26. Summer

    Your skin tone/coloring: FAIR/COOL-NEUTRAL
    Sticky or non-sticky lipgloss? STICKY
    Matte or luminous lipstick?LUMINOUS
    Satin or frost eyeshadow?SATIN

  27. Veronica

    Your skin tone/coloring: NW10-NW/C15
    Sticky or non-sticky lipgloss? I don’t really have a preference. Sticky doesn’t feather as much on me, but non-sticky is, well, not sticky. :)
    Matte or luminous lipstick? Matte all the way. I’ll wear lipgloss if I want shine.
    Satin or frost eyeshadow? Satin. Frost looks terrible on my hooded eyes.

  28. Your skin tone/coloring: Mac NC 42 Urban Decay 8.0
    Sticky or non-sticky lipgloss? Not really but at the same time they last longer if they sticky Mac lip glass is really the only ones I Would wear and I find them sticky and long lasting
    Matte or luminous lipstick? Matte lipsticks all the way I find luminous lipsticks don’t last long on me
    Satin or frost eyeshadow? This hard I would say frost for my lids only and maybe as a highlighter too.

  29. G

    Very fair, neutral.
    Non-sticky gloss.
    Satin to matte lip.
    Satin eye.

  30. Amanda

    Your skin tone/coloring? Fair/Neutral

    Sticky or non-sticky lipgloss? Sticky! I know im in the minority but when wearing gloss i want lasting power, i hate glosses that are gone in 10 minutes!

    Matte or luminous lipstick? Luminous, i like mattes but they usually dry out my lips or make them appear dry!

    Satin or frost eyeshadow? Satin but i like frost too!

  31. Georgina

    - Your skin tone/coloring: Fair, cool toned (NW15-20)
    - Sticky or non-sticky lipgloss? Non-sticky! I don’t wear lipgloss often as my hair sticks to it either way.
    - Matte or luminous lipstick? Luminous for every day wear and matte for an event when I need it to be longer lasting.
    - Satin or frost eyeshadow? Satin – just easier to apply and usually has less fall out.

  32. Complexion: Snow White
    Sticky or Non-Sticky: Neither! Lip gloss is uncomfortable and gross
    Matte or Luminous: Luminous lipstick. It’s a formula thing, my lips tend to be dry so most mattes are a no-go.
    Satin or Frost: Satin. Although my favorites are all metallics. Mattes are also awesome, especially weird ones like matte-duchrome or matte-glitter.

  33. Your skin tone/coloring: NC10/NC15 in summer.
    Sticky or non-sticky lipgloss? Non sticky.
    Matte or luminous lipstick? Both – depends on my mood.

    Your skin tone/coloring: This is bad, but I’m not sure? I’d say light to light/medium in the summer, but I’m not sure about my undertone. I don’t think I’m very pink or yellow, so I guess I’m neutral?
    Sticky or non-sticky lipgloss? Non-sticky.
    Matte or luminous lipstick? Luminous.
    Satin or frost eyeshadow? I actually love frost shadows, but my boyfriend hates them, haha.
