YES!!! Purple eyeshadows and eyeliners…i love them! I just cant get enough of them! And neutral lip products….but for fall I am venturing out to the wild side *wink wink* hehehe and I will be purchasing my first bold lipstick =)

coral blushes!
coral lippies!

really…i go crazy when i see another one, it’s like i have a weird desire to own all the coral blushes in the world! or anything coral at all!

– “bruise/dirty” colored eyeshadows
– purple nail polishes, i think 50% of my nail polish collection is purple
– midtone pink/tan lipsticks (don’t really think nudes or bolds look good on me)

I used to buy every shade of blue & teal eye shadow I could find. But unfortunately they’re really unflattering on me lol so once I learned that I stopped.

Now I buy lipsticks like it’s nobody’s business. Mostly pinks and nude’s.

Coral lip products for sure! I just think they look good on me…also green eyeshadows as I have not found my HG. So basically the same as you : )

Brown and pink, for sure. I also manage to get a lot of lippies that are identical to my natural lip color! lol. You’d think I’d have learned by now!

I have to say that taupes, greys, and nudes are my weaknesses. I have a lot of taupe,gold, mint, grey and nude polishes, and if I see a new polish(in that range of colors) that I have not tried, I will be inclined to get it, even if the difference is not that much. With lipsticks I usually go with colors in the nude family, but your lip posts for the seasons definitely help me break that habit.

Peach and coral lip glosses, lipsticks & blushes, and brown, teal, gold & champagne eye shadows. I also have a lot of different black, brown, purple & olive green eyeliners.

Deep Truth kind of shades, Freshwater dupes, shimmermoss dupes and bronze dupes… I have so many.. and for lip products it’s always milky pink glosses with silver sparkle… 🙁

I don’t buy as much as I just seem to keep seeking these colours out – and then I remind myself I don’t need that many of them (colour products).

I’m always looking at foundations, blue eyeshadows, red lipsticks and bright pink blushes…

Purple eye shadows! I love purple, I’m an artist, and a makeup fanatic, which means I can *totally* tell that there are differences between each and every purple shadow!! …even if other people can’t! LOL! *cringe*

purple and green eye shadow
black eyeliner, liquid and in pencil
dark nail polish, black, wine red, dark green, dark gray … really anything that looks black or almost black from afar

Purple everything! I have however made an effort to stop purchasing purple products in the hopes of finding new colours that work well with my skin tone.

Red lipsticks, coral lipsticks and glosses, and taupe eye shadows are my weaknesses. Of those three, I’m better able to control myself when it comes to corals and taupes. As for red lipstick, there’s no stopping me!

-Bronzers that are too orange for me 😀 lol I end up using them like a “dark peach” blush mixed with other colours !
-Pink nude lipsticks
-Pink lip glosses

For me it’s purple eyeshadows… although I probably have (almost) every possible shade of this colour, it’s always the first colour my eyes are drawn to when I enter a cosmetics store!

Lipglosses…. And then I hardly ever use them because I don’t like the feel of it on my lips!!
And every kind of new mascara that gets advertized. And more often than not I am totally disappointed with them and they just sit there in my make-up boxes. 🙂

I always gravitate towards nude beige, peach and coral shades when it comes to lipstick and peach and coral shades on blushes, while I like blue-ish, teal and green when it comes to eyeshadows.

Coral blush, Coral lipstick. Those two are so bad that I’m prohibiting myself from buying any from Fabulous Felines (Need the liners more).

As for eyeshadow I looooooooove bright turquoise and lime green colors!!!

i’m into corals… never interested me at first but now i’m in love….

so some of the corals that i now love are MAC Crosswires, fold and tuck, jazzed…..

mac LE blushes and bronzers (hello to the beach, lilyland and spring color forecast) and any skin hilighter (high beam, the new bobbi brown one, and im lemming the new benefit one meant to come out)

pale nude-pink lipsticks
dark brown matte/nearly-matte eyeshadows
dark brown eyeliners

My excuse is that I’m trying to “perfect” the brown eye/pale lip look I wear almost every day.

Anything coral! It’s kinda funny…I never really understood what a coral specifically was until I started reading this blog, and now I have coral overload. =)

Pretty much the same as you, Christine: coral lipsticks (for summer), green and gold eye colors. I also collect shadows in: browns, oranges, corals, yellow, copper and bronze. I guess coral is my “thing” because I always get lipsticks, nail colors, blush and shadow in that family. Orange and brown lipsticks, too.

Every neutral e/s by mac no matter the finish… Any MLBB lipstick, and all the red nail polishes… Especially the bright tomato-y colored ones! Glad I’m
not the only sick/dedicated one!

I buy eyeshadow more than anything else, and I’m instantly attracted to anything remotely teal or turquoise. More broadly, most single shadows I buy are somewhere on the color spectrum from blue to green. Lately I’ve been trying to collect more pinks, though.

Teal anything! Every time I go shopping I always pick up any sort of teal or aqua or turquoise liner/shadow before realizing that I should probably fill my kit with other colors first. The same with nail polishes! Although now I’m working on building the purple in my nail polish collection. Here we go!

Neutrals shade, any shade of browns I can found, I also love champange color, they are my all time fav. Yesterday,I just bought from the Balm, luscious lani and mischievous Marissa, so happy

Purple lipstick. Purple eyeshadow, too, but mostly purple lipstick.

I also have more matte black eyeshadow than I can ever use, but that can be partially attributed to almost every Kat Von D palette having a ‘Lucifer’.

I had a teal eyeshadow thing when I first got into makeup, so I have about 6 different brands and multiple finishes in teal. These days, I gravitate toward blue-pink lipsticks.

I am CONSTANTLY buying nude lip glosses. I don’t know what it is, I’m just always looking for the perfect nude lip.

For eyeshadows, I’m obsessed with purples and blues. OBSESSED, I tell you.

I always buy red lipsticks and gloss when I don’t need any! Also hot pink gloss and foundation~can never find the perfect one. Oh and nail polish too, probably the thing I buy the most.

Taupe eyeshadow
Pinkish Beige & shimmery beige eyeshadow
Shimmery nude and pink glosses
Any variation of grey nailpolish (flat grey, gunmetal, dirty grey, beige-grey, brown-grey, etc., etc., etc.)

This is easy: peach/coral lip colors, and brown eye shadows in just about any shade. It’s an illness, but I don’t want to be cured.

Neutral eyeshadows. ESPECIALLY taupes. I love taupes…..

And sheer red glosses or lipsticks. I love them. Not too much change to my natural lip color (I’m super-pale and have really rosy cheeks and lips) but adds a bit of shine….
