Chanel Marilyn lipstick is a favorite pinky red,sadly It’s been discontinued. Loreal’s Volcanic lipstick, Maybelline Park Ave Peach lipstick, Urban Decay Naked 1 and 3 palettes, can always give me great looks. MAC Whisper of Gilt, Nars Orgasm and Mati Hari blushes, Chanel Charade blush and the limited edition Guerlain Emilio Pucci Terra Azzurra blush and bronzing powder.

Other than my signature crisp, clean cat-eye sharp enough to cut a….hmm, lemme think? Tom Ford Black Orchid perfume, MAC Whisper Of Gilt MSF, UD Rapture blush, and some fairly wild eyeshadow looks that get loads of compliments from fellow makeup lovers, and also comments from some *others* referring to how they “prefer a more natural look” or how “matte eyeshadow is good at our age, right?”….Oh well! I’m doing Nancy, and they can do themselves, too.

I dig your comment about “being Nancy.” I wear colorful eyeshadow at 62 and that’s that. To be honest, most people compliment my eyes so I guess I’m doing something right! (The false eyelashes help make it work, to be honest).

I have a few that I can think of!

The Body Shop Moroccan Rose Perfume (DC! But my signature scent 🙁 My best friend of 14 Years says whenever she smells rose she thinks of me! )

Kat Von D Studded kiss lipstick Hellbent (Matte cool deeper red! It’s my Holy Grail red lipstick! it makes my teeth look whiter, and it’s creamy and smooth on me!)

MAC Rebel (I’m halfway done my second tube of this one! It’s a must have for me!)

LUSH’s Santa Baby Lip Tint (My all time favourite holy grail lipstick!!! If I could only have one lipstick, it’d be this one!)

Colourpop Nillionaire (I’m on my second or third pot of this shadow, it makes my warm brown eyes pop!)

Green eye shadow!! I wear green eye shadow 2 times a week. My favourites are Colourpop Hammered, MAC Humid, MAC Sumptuous Olive)

And intense Yellow Gold highlights! I love me a good yellow highlight!! 😀

Bobbi Brown Gel Liner in black, MAC paintpot in Velvet Selection, Mac Mehr l/s and Soar lipliner, Mac Extra Dimension e/s in Natural Flirt, Chanel Le Crème Blush in Inspiration (sadly discontinued), Essie Sole Mate, Chloe Chloe edp and Tom Ford Velvet Orchid edp.

I have many ‘true loves’ but only a few HGs (best-ever, ‘IT’ check-marked): Shiseido Extra Creamy Cleanser, Decleor Hydra Floral Mask, Givenchy Magnolia Organza #301 Lipstick, Sephora No. 26 Tranquil Matte Contour Powder, Paula Dorf Luna Matte Eyeshadow, The Body Shop Lightening and Darkening Drops (lightens/darkens foundations), Bottega Veneta Knot, and WG #14 and #16 Brushes (which are market unique, as far as I know). All are still available. I have a few others that are discontinued (boo-hiss) or extremely difficult to find (for which, I shamelessly beat the internet bushes).

In true sense of the question, only Chanel Tempting Beige (discontinued), and fragrances Bulgari red tea for fall/winter and green tea for spring/summer. Over last months, my mainstays have included Laura Geller Pink Grapefruit blush, Lorac eyeliner in Bronze, and UD Riff eyeshadow so maybe these are becoming signatures.

MAC Craving, the Chanel Empreinte du desert quad (several times, people have commented on how nice my eyes look and have asked what I’m wearing) and Nars Kalahari (though it needs a bit more “help”), Marc Jacobs Skinny Liner in Blacquer under my upper lashes.

1. Lancome Teint Idole Foundation
2. Urban Decay Perversion Mascara
3. Jordana Coco Loco Lip Liner (perfect brown liner for WOC)
4. Philosophy Purity and The Microdelivery Exfoliating Wash
5. MAC Del Rio Lipstick
6. Colour Pop Lip Primer (I apply under any liquid lipstick brand)

I’m a creature of habit, so the list goes on, and on, and on…

*The hair color I’ve had the last year and a half has become my signature look that everyone remembers me for. It’s L’oreal Excellence Hi-Color Red Highlights in Magenta. People always compliment my “mermaid” or “Ariel” hair.

*Max Factor Creme Rouge in 537 is my signature red, and I get quite a lot of compliments on that as well.

*Urban Decay 24/7 Glide-On Eye Pencil in Perversion is my signature, HG black eyeliner. I wear it in some capacity almost every day.

*E.l.f. HD Powder in Sheer.

*Too Faced Shadow Insurance.

*In general: Purple eyeshadows and eyeliners, coral blushes, and unconventional or super-bright lip colors are signature products for me.

Everything about them screams ‘you.’ Those products that make you want to break something when you learn they’re discontinued. Those products that you reach for, and reach for, and reach for. . . . like potato chips, buttered popcorn and just-baked chocolate chip cookies.

Ok then
Mugler alien perfume
L’oreal mythic oil perfume (discontinued)
Urban Decay Vice lipstick criminal
Mac lipstick pink pigeon
The body shop wonderblur primer (discontinued)
W7 correcting concealer in violet/lavender
Manic panic white foundation
Maybelline the colossal volume express cat eyes Mascara in brown

Urban Decay Fireball ES, NARS Deep Throat Blush, MAC Fanfare LS; all of which I can wear with Teal, Purple, Green, or Grey eye shadows. Oh and Kevin Aucoin Medium contour powder and it Cosmetics Illumination cream highlighter.

Milani lipsticks in Candied Toffee and Cinnamon Spice (I have a few backups) and I think they are discontinued or will be soon

Dior’s 3 Colours Khaki – does the best olive brown, olive green and gold sheen I have seen; UD Naked and Guerlain’s Les Gris – beautiful blues.

Natio Blush in Sunkissed

Rimmel Match Perfection foundation in light porcelain – the first foundation I found that really matched my skin tone.

Clarins Super Restorative foundation in linen – discontinued and hard to get.

For me it’s Urban Decay eyeshadow in Maui Wowie. It looks like it is super glittery in the pan, but when it’s on, it’s not. It’s staying power is awesome and theres not much fallout either. Same goes for the shade Mildew. It’s like a mossy green, and really makes my green eyes pop!

NARS foundation, blush, cream eyeshadows, WetnWild I’ll have a Cosmo hugliter and Cherry Bomb lipstick also many eyeshadows and all blushes! Physicians Formula butter bronzer and natural do it all those 9 little square thingies just the loveliest glow! I will buy their pink also but as highlighter the colirs are very soft.
Anais Anais perfum most time people love it when I wear mostly in Summer or Spring.

For the longest time, it was lower lashline with Tarina Tarantino’s Spark of Envy! Now I’m not sure I have a signature any more, but I do still love to wear bright turquoise on bottom lash!

Long & luxurious lashes- Elizabeth Arden Beautiful Color Maximum Volume Mascara OR (Armani Eyes to Kill if I’m being fancy)

Thought about this all day. I’m going to interpret ‘signature product’ as something that is associated especially with you. It’s not makeup….I’m all over the place. It’s a yellow, standard transmission V W beetle. Since I’m on years 25-37, I guess that’s it. For scents, Creed Erolfa in summer…never understand why no one else wears it, and to a lesser extent, the original Cartier Declaration for fall, and classic L’Air du Temps for spring. My dad picked that one for me, and he died in 71. Scentimental, since we’re into bad puns here.

I’m really a chameleon, I like to change things up, a lot! But my go to products are Smashbox primers, Nars Orgasm Blush (I’ve just run out and tried something else – no go, I have to go back). I just bought the Anastasia Glow Kit last summer and can’t get enough of it, and my signature scent that I always fall back on is Elizabeth Arden 5th Avenue, I’m over 50 and it makes me feel like a grown up (I will never really grow up!)

If a combination of NARS radiant tinted moisturizer and MAC mineralize foundation loose can be called a “signature look”, then that’s that. 🙂 My skin looks soo good when I use those together. Color wise it’s probably a light lip (think MAC Fleshpot) and Naked Lunch + Satin Taupe eyeshadows.

Really want to have a signature scent, but there is always smth missing that stops me from using it every single day.

Milani Matte Naked lipstick for sure. I wear it practically every weekday with just foundation and brows because I’m too lazy to spend a ton of time on makeup when I have class and was up late working. It’s my favorite, I think it’ll be the first tube of lipstick I actually finish!
