    (Even though it’s technically winter here :p) the best thing I’ve bought is a bronzer.. first one ever! And my new love :D

  2. Ashley

    That would be is Givenchy’s Mattemate powder

    2nd best is port red l/s, (I really need to get a couple of additional backups if I could)

  3. grace

    high 90′s slimshine. thanks to youuu Christine!! It is an easy way to do a fun lip without worrying about over applying. This was my first slimshine and I want more!!

  4. Warming Trend eyeshadow! It is so versatile! I can use it with Black Ore for a smoky look, or even use it with Gulf Stream for a light summery look. I love it, and need to go get some back ups…

  5. hmmm………….either the 3 tendertones i bought (pucker, sweet tooth and honey bare), or High 90′s and Gentle Simmer slimshines. oh, wait, maybe Illegal Cargo eyeshadow. or, if you ask me next week, i’ll say the cool eyes palette from Color Forms………..

  6. natasha

    i’ll have to day satin taupe and patina e/s.
    i held out for these 2 lovelies for far too long.

  7. Ashley

    NARS blush in Orgasm. So pretty and so versatile! Also MAC Paints and Paint Pots. Don’t know how I lived without these!

  8. Lingping

    Definitely Clinique quick eyes cream shadow in rock violet. The color is perfect, it can be used alone or as a super base, it is easy to put on and it stays on throughout the day no matter the weather or activites. *love it*

  9. Zsofi

    Pigments: Fuchsia,Kitschmas,Cornflower and Copper Sparkle :-)
    and Studio Fix Powder plus foundation.
    what makes tem so fabulous is their high quality and the MAC feeling :-)

  10. claudine

    i would say snob and angel lipsticks, ez baby tendertone, all my dazzleglasses and the brush that came with the skinsheen collection haha

  11. Tina

    MAC shadestick in Sharkskin! I’ve heard so many people rave about it and its used in alot of looks on youtube. I know its sold out online and people are even going to ebay to look for it, but I went to my local MAC counter and they still had it :) i’m in love with it already

  12. Milan

    Definitely the 4 tendertones I brought! I love them and i’ve been wearing them every day.

  13. cloudburst

    It’s a discontinued product (I got it on Ebay) but Tom Ford for Estee Lauder Amber Nude Bronzer. It’s sheer but makes my skin look like I got some sun, also has a very nautral sheen and it’s totally undetectable!

  14. Elle

    First off, Christine–I love this site! You do such an awesome job with it.

    I like the Tendertones (I’m embarassed to admit how many I’ve bought so far), and I think my favorite is Hush, Hush. I also love Warming Trend and Cool Heat–my favorite combination so far. The By Degrees slimshine is awesome too! MAC is seriously robbing me of all of my hard-earned cash…it’s only going to get worse, too… ;)

  15. Urban Decay Heavy Metal Glitter Liner. It totally changes your look, and makes it look super fun!

  16. sophia

    my neo sci fi eyeshadows!! have been using them everyday.

    i am waiting for cool heats!! solar white, blue flame and the s/s high 90s.

  17. chuarmk

    I have a couple of best beauty items. MAC – play around pink colorform powder,dark influence rmh,colorforms cool e/s palette,circa plum,lovely lily,viz-a-violet,black ore & by jupiter(I bought 3pcs more for collection)

  18. DJ

    MAC Sci-Fidelity lipstick
    Three Custom Color lipliner in Coral
    Three Custom Color ‘watercolor’in Coral Waterlily (perhaps my HG blush for everyday)
    and MAC loose beauty powders in Dazzlelight & Natural Flare (I cannot believe these are LE, they are perfect in every way)

  19. Lindsay

    Tendertones in EZ Baby, hot and saucy, pucker, sweet tooth and take a hint and Slimshines in By Degrees and Swelter. I love all of them so much, they really need to make the tendertones permanent, they are so perfect for summer.

  20. Michelle

    I love Illegal Cargo, Warming Trend, and Hush Hush Tendertone! Pucker is also a really great tendertone. Dior tinted moisturizer is also a must for me from now on!

  21. Julia.

    I’m really loving Magnetic Fields and Femme-Fi.
    Tendertones I got: Pucker, Take A Hint, & Hush, Hush (LOVE THE SMELL AND TEXTURE!)
    And I finally got some MAC brushes, 239 (obviously) and the 219! I adore them! I’m looking at getting the 190 now :)

  22. CRISITINE

    The best thing by far is my mac mineralized loose foundation, its not ichy and its basically fool proof and it smells good compared to other mac face product.

  23. Amelia

    mine would be Melon pigment so pretty, I love it, I use it almost everyday cause it is such a perfect color for summer

  24. Claire

    I’ve only had it just over a week (I’m in the UK so MAC is released later here), but the Volcanic Ash Exfoliator is something I’m loving right now. My skin looks a lot clearer, my pores appear smaller and my skin is so soft after using it! Such a shame it is LE. I keep hoping they’ll bring it back as part of the perm line. :)

  25. Nicole

    2 Products on the one hand Benefits Erase Paste on the other hand Too Faced Mood Swing, cause it’s just magic.

  26. Parveen

    mine would deff be Geurlain’s meteorites illuminating perfecting pressed powder in 02 Rose.
    Even though it doesn’t come out in the uk until mid july I managed to persuade the lady to sell it to me well over 2 weeks in advanace.. hehe
    i also got the meteorites primer..

    these two products are amazinggg the really give light to the face and lighten ur skin which is noticible. I’m so impressed im going to get back ups.. It sucks though the products are 37 pounds each thats like a little over 70 bucks

  27. valentina

    Definitely gloss Aqualumiere Chanel Party Red and Bronze Goddess Estee Lauder eau fraiche + body oil ;-)

  28. DevilishDoll

    Ms Fizz Dazzleglass, Lovely Lily Pigment, Stars and Rockets Eyeshadow, and when they come in, probably Gulf Stream, Warm Chill and Cool Heat Eyeshadows.

  29. Amanda23

    I’m loving my Dermalogica sensitive skin sunscreen…. it’s the best!!! I love it because it doesn’t leave my skin greasy!!!! I highly recommend it!!!!

  30. Cristina

    It wasn’t really a purchase, but it was a B2M item. MAC Lipstick in Skew…:D

  31. JK

    Sonia Kashuk’s creme blush in Rosey and the flat blush brush. A lovely, natural, pink flush, totally buildable, really foolproof. I was scared of cream blushes for ages but now I want more!

  32. Stephanie

    So far I would say that I am loving Illegal Cargo & Hey Sailor from Naughty Nauticals, Sci-fi Delity & Pink Grapefruit form Neo Sci-fi, Blue Flame from Cool Heat.

  33. Vivien

    TENDERTONES <3
    Best lipbalm ever! I bought 2 and I think my favorite is EZ Baby followed by Honey Bare!!!

  34. Shefali

    Dazzleglass…HANDS DOWN.

  35. Miss QQ

    Hi. They are Evening Aura e/s, Expensive Pink e/s, Pink Grapefruit l/g, Play Around Pink blush, and Chanel Rouge Hydrabase l/s Rose Flamingo.

  36. Amanda

    The MAC TENDERTONES!!! I adore them-my favorite is Take a Hint <3

  37. It’s Winter here but I purchased MAC beauty powder: Pearl Sunshine (finally!) and I absolutely love it!

  38. Kathleena

    I finally got MAC plushglass in Big Kiss and MAC Sheertone Shimmer Blush in Peachtwist for the summer. I absoutely adore my plushglass. Its a soft peach…………….I love it!

  39. Bridget

    My best beauty item list for the summer is kind of a hefty one. The NYX felt tip pen kind of eyeliner is amazing. I suck quit a bit at doing eyeliner but this compensates for it. It’s kind of a liquid liner but in a pen so it’s easier. Also NYX round lipstick in Twist is a perfect peach kind of day lip color. All the slimshines from Cool Heat are necessary for me too.
