Nail polish–specifically, black, blue, green and glitter polishes. Adventurous for me because I’ve classic pinks and reds until my mid-life crisis started last year (age 46). I don’t care if it’s appropriate. It makes me happy. So there. : )

Carolyn – the idea that you are ever “too old” for fun, creative colors is pure hogwash! As a young lady who fully plans to never abandon my blue, green, and glittery cosmetics, I salute you. 🙂

For me it’d be my really bright red lipsticks; I have fears of BRIGHT lips even though I love the colors! Guerlain Garconne is this gorgeous red, but I’m always afraid to wear it because I might smear it, smudge it, get ring o’ lipstick, get it on my teeth, just look weird, etc.

And that having been said, I picked up one of the new Maybelline Vivids, Pop of Cherry, which is an almost neon pink based red. I still don’t know where or if I’ll ever wear it, but it’s *so* pretty.

Probably OCC Lip Tar in triptych. I’ve also just orders Sleek makeup Pout Paint in Peek-A-Bloo (blue) and I also have the Sleek MU Acid palette which is pretty bright lol

I own *alot* of red eyeshdows & liners. While I consider them “normal” & “everyday” products, I realize there are many who don’t. I also own several black lipsticks & glosses. I actually feel more comfortable wearing these than a coral or bright pink lip product, which I do actually own, but never wear…

Benetint- I bought it during my teenage years when it was sold at the Face Place (predecessors of Benefit). I used it on my cheeks but I heard that its original purpose was for somewhere else which I should not say on this forum….so it was a risque product…..

For myself it would have to be after shelling out over $350 for a hair removal kit.

I bought the “SILK’N Flash&Go Permanent Hair Removal Device” from Sephora a while back when it was more expensive and now it’s $299. I love it, you just apply it to the area’s of your choice once or twice a week for a month or two and the hair is virtually gone, although it’s costly, it’s really made my life a whole lot easier. I just got a $40 replacement cartridge for free because of a promo cod.

I’m so happy to hear of your success with this product. I have just started using mine and am crossing my fingers that I get the same result as you. Thanks for sharing!

Adventurous? That’s a strange one… Probably MAC’s She Who Dares MES duo…blackened green and blackened blue and both with lots of glitter.

I have a few black lip glosses. Nothing opaque, but they’re good for layering over other colors for a vampy look. I try not to buy things I don’t intend to wear much.

I consider myself conservative when it comes to wearing make-up, as I work on the Hill. I would say wearing a pop of color on the lower lash line – like teal, ocean blue or purple depending upon my clothing. I would also say, wearing a neon color on my toes during the summer. I also have been drawn to black, ink blue and teal on the nails this winter.

Green eyeshadow (MAC Jealousy Wakes) is quite adventurous for me as well as a fushia lipstick (NYX Chloe)

I’m going to say laser hair removal too – the Remington IPL6000. Got it for around $250 at Christmas. (:

Now I have NEVER been so apprehensive about using a product, but once I did, I was totally won over.

Apart from that it’s been quite tame! Nails inc magnetic nail polish is probably next in line.

Probably my teal, emerald and black lipsticks/glosses – as well as some bright red cream liner! I don’t wear them every day but I do wear them fairly often.

I just picked up a super bright neon orange blush from Maybelline (Coral Crush I think?). It’s just so pretty! I haven’t worn it yet, other than a quick swatch but it sheers out really well. I also have Nars Persia eyeshadow, bright burnt orange. I didn’t like it at all in pictures, but once I swatched it at Sephora, I fell in love and have worn it with warm golden browns. I also love bright & glittery nail polishes!

For me it would have to be Chanel Taffetas Rose, a bold dark pink, Guerlain Champs Elysee automatique and Chanel Exaltee which are basically the same bold pink with a slight red hint on me lol and Mac New York Apple a red berry…I actually do use this colors but not as much as my more tame pinks, most of my lipsticks are pink and these are the boldest I have…yes I´m not very adventurous 😛 .
