Your skin tone/coloring: neutral pale
Last lipstick you finished? A Wet n’ Wild metallic brown lipstick from back in the 2000s. Don’t remember the name. I never finish lipsticks before they get funky.
Last eyeshadow you finished? Chains by Urban Decay
Last skincare product you finished? A tub of Ro’s Argan body conditioner from Lush. Pretty addicted.

That Ro’s Argan stuff has been a lifesaver for me as it’s hard to use regular moisturizer with nerve damage in my hands as even that pressure hurts, so Ro’s Argan is the way I keep my skin hydrated. Pricey, but a GREAT product.

Skin tone: A little darker than my regular MAC NC 37 (light medium warm) due to sunless tanning products. I am a solid medium warm right now.

Last lipstick I finished: Never happened! The lipsticks I currently wear most often are MAC’s Tenor Voice and Have Your Cake.

Last eyeshadow I finished: Never happened! I can’t even think of a shadow I wear most often, as I alter palettes and singles daily. I have been using Tom Ford’s Spice consistently since July. Today I wore Nude Dip with Spice as a base, and I like it!

Last skincare product I finished: My glycolic acid. I am about to finish a tube of Retin A and Dermadoctor Kakadu C face cream.

Your skin tone/coloring: “Light neutral”
Last lipstick you finished?: I already went through my entire tube of UD’s Ravenswood!
Last eyeshadow you finished?: The dark grey from Wet and Wild’s ColorIcon Lust palette! Only took three years!
Last skincare product you finished?: UD One and Done

Your skin tone/coloring: Fair, cool
Last lipstick you finished? MAC Craving (it really is my “go to”)
Last eyeshadow you finished? HA…you’re joking, right? I haven’t finished an eyeshadow since back in the early 90’s when all I wore was a colour by Revlon called Guilty Grey
Last skincare product you finished? Clinique SuperDefense (I think that’s what it’s called) – the face cream with SPF20; as soon as I get near the end, I got out and buy another one every time (this is probably my 4th or 5th jar).

Your skin tone/coloring: light medium with warm undertones
Last lipstick you finished? I don’t think I’ve ever finished one! I don’t wear much lipstick.
Last eyeshadow you finished? I am scraping the edges out of the pan of Virgin in my Naked 1 palette. I bought a replacement but I wish I could actually refill that pan… I guess that’s the problem with palettes!
Last skincare product you finished? An Illuminage Youth Cell Concentrate serum… I didn’t like it but I didn’t want to waste it- I’m so glad it’s gone!

Your skin tone/coloring: Warm light-medium (NC 20-25)
Last lipstick you finished? MAC Fanfare
Last eyeshadow you finished? Never finished one, just dumped The Balm Nudetude as it expired.
Last skincare product you finished? Bioderma Sensibio Cleansing Milk

Your skin tone/coloring: Porcelain
Last lipstick you finished? UD Gash – the old one, and it was a while ago.
Last eyeshadow you finished? UD Mildew.
Last skincare product you finished? a deluxe sample of Fresh rose face mask.

Skin Tone: Medium, neutral

Last lipstick you finished? MAC Brick-o-la. Finished a couple of these through the years.

Last eyeshadow you finished? MAC Naked Lunch and MUG Peach Smoothie went out together a few weeks ago.

Last skincare product you finished? Kiehl’s Rose Artica Moisturizer

Your skin tone/coloring: fair warm (L’Oreal W1-2 is my best match right now, also Cover FX G10), currently reddish hair (described by a friend as “copper-bronze”, which I love), hazel eyes

Last lipstick you finished? Believe it or not, I’ve never actually finished one! The closest I’ve gotten is with MAC Peach Blossom (about 2/3 of the way through). The only reason I’ve gotten that far is that I have to reapply at least once an hour, if not more (the Cremesheens don’t last AT ALL on me). I’ve gotten through almost as much of MAC Relentlessly Red and it’s a better example of a product I use frequently, since I never have to reapply it!

Last eyeshadow you finished? Again, I’ve never finished one but I’ve gotten a really good way through Makeup Geek Creme Brulee!

Last skincare product you finished? Belif The True Cream Aqua Bomb (not the Moisturizing Bomb). Definitely the best moisturizer I’ve ever used!

NW 20-25, but tan now. Dumped 5 lips today. Wish I had a sense of smell…It’s hard to know. These due to think I’m developing a sensitivity to cinnamates. (Yay, cosdna!) Shadow: never…too many, plus if it gets too panned, I quit it, so I’ll still have it. Skincare: Garnier blue bottle micellar yesterday. Prob PC clear cleanser today. It’s night, after oil cleanse. AMs, I use Resist, no oil. Also replaced a Konjac sponge yesterday with a charcoal one. Also dumped most of both stashes with aloe. That’s not a good sensitivity to have; it’s in virtually everything.

I’ve never finished an eyeshadow or lipstick! I’ve tossed lipsticks when they got gross but that’s it. (Eyeshadows seem to last forever and I can’t bring myself to throw them out even if I don’t really feel into those colors anymore. I might need that dqed MAC Shimmermoss for a look some day!)

The last skin care product I finished was a moisturizer from Paula’s Choice. How mundane.

*Last lipstick – was probably a tube of Maybelline Yummy Plummy, decades ago
*Last eye shadow – it was a dark brown shadow from Clinique that I used to set my brows with. Even after using a decent amount everyday, it took me years to hit pan
*Last skincare – Supergoop City Sunscreen Serum SPF 30

Your skin tone/coloring: fair/cool

Last lipstick you finished? Dior Addict Lip Glow in pink (usually never finish any makeup products, but this one I’m obsessed with for everyday use. Hello SPF!)

Last eyeshadow you finished? I’ve never finished one but a few shadows in the Too
Faced Natural Eye Neutral Eye Shadow Collection palette are touching pan!)

Last skincare product you finished? Origins High Potency Night-A-Mins Skin Refining Oil AND the Mineral-Enriched Renewal Cream of the same brand.

Your skin tone/coloring: fair, warm, blue eyes
Last lipstick you finished? UD Lovelight / Revolution — I had backup, so am not on the Vice version yet
Last eyeshadow you finished? MAC Soft Brown — not replaced, I have many other neutral browns in my stash
Last skincare product you finished? Cerave cleanser for normal skin — I replaced immediately, it’s my daily use cleanser

Your skin tone/coloring: Very fair with neutral undertones; magenta hair; hazel/green eyes.

Last lipstick you finished? It was a LE drugstore lipstick from the early 1990s that was a marbled bright orange and purple with pearl finish. It turned out the most amazing shade of magenta on the lips. I can’t remember the brand, but I went through three or four tubes of that stuff.

Last eyeshadow you finished? I don’t think I’ve finished an eyeshadow since the early 2000s. It was the Almay Intense i-Color 003 Trio for Hazel. It had a dark brown, a shimmery pink, and shimmery buff color. I wore it nearly every day for several years and replaced it about every 3-4 months.

Last skincare product you finished? Lavanila The Healthy Body Butter in Pure Vanilla.

That’s funny — only a week ago I mixed two lipsticks that I rarely wear to see how they’d come out; one was a hot reddish orange and the other was a medium lavender purple, and they came out a vibrant but natural medium-dark rose color. It’s actually gorgeous and I have nothing like it.

Your skin tone/coloring: NC15 with some redness

Last lipstick you finished? Sephora Collection Cream Lip Stain in 13 Marvelous Mauve

Last eyeshadow you finished? Charlotte Tilbury Eyes to Mesmerize in Bette

Last skincare product you finished? Origins GinZing Energy-Boosting Moisturizer

Your skin tone/coloring: very fair, neutral-warm
Last lipstick you finished? I don’t think I’ve ever finished an actual lipstick, but I did scrape the last dregs out of my NYX Butter Gloss in Strawberry Parfait last week.
Last eyeshadow you finished? I’ve never finished an eyeshadow. I did once hit pan on Maybelline Color Tattoo Bad to the Bronze, but it dried out before I could finish it up.
Last skincare product you finished? Either Cerave Hydrating Cleanser or Acure Organics Marula Oil–I finished them about the same time.

Skin tone: Fair with neutral undertones

Last lipstick you finished? Nars Dolce Vita lipstick

Last eyeshadow you finished? I’ve never finished one! The shade Foxy in my UD Basics palette has a pretty good amount of pan on it though and may take the title before the end of the year.

Last skincare product you finished? Sample aside (I’ve gone through so many this summer while traveling!) I just finished Origins Checks and Balances face wash and Supergoop City Sunscreen Serum SPF 30.

Your skin tone/coloring: fair to light
Last lipstick you finished? Bobbi Brown Creamy Lipstick – Uber Pink. Actually have almost finished number 2 too, but I have another 30+ lippies that are in various states of use.
Last eyeshadow you finished? LOL, what’s that?
Last skincare product you finished? Drunk Elephant vitamin C serum. Skin care is the only area I use up consistently.

Your skin tone/coloring:Medium/Tan Neutral MAC NC 40
Last lipstick you finished? I can’t remember it hasn’t happened in years ???
Last eyeshadow you finished? I’m finishing up Stila Kitten!
Last skincare product you finished? Origins Ginzing moisturizer

Your skin tone/coloring: light/warm
Last lipstick you finished? I’ve never finished a lipstick haha. Omg wow lol! I just have so many -oops.
Last eyeshadow you finished? Half baked urban decay but only because when I hit pan it shattered and I couldn’t salvage the rest.
Last skincare product you finished? First Aid Beauty Ultra Repair Hydrating Serum. I want another one but it’s not particularly cheap so we shall see.

Your skin tone/coloring: Light Neutral
Last lipstick you finished? MAC Plumful
Last eyeshadow you finished? MAC Brûlée.. only took me five years
Last skincare product you finished? First Aid Beauty Face Cleanser. Honestly one of my favourite skin care items, just so simple.

Skin tone/colouring: NC/N25!! (Warm/Yellow leaning neutral undertones!)

Last lipstick I finished: L’oreal Le Laque, It’s in the bright glossy red shade (the name got rubbed off!!) It’s rolled all the way up, and the lipstick is totally flush with the tube!!

Last eye shadow I finished: In January I finished my SECOND (!) pan of MAC Wedge. I use it EVERY SINGLE DAY in my crease! I was scraping the edges until it was just pan 😛

Last skincare product I finished: LUSH’s pot of Mask of Magnaminty! I already repurchased the biggest tub of this! I love it in the summer for my Combo/oily acne prone skin!

Your skin tone/coloring: Fairest neutral. Think Make Up For Ever Ultra HD Foundation in Y205 Alabaster. I’m really liking this foundation, plus the slight yellow tinge helps to neutralise my redness.

Last lipstick you finished? Either MAC Angel or Chanel Darling. Not sure which one was the last. I repurchased Angel but I mourn the loss of Darling as it was LE. ?

Last eyeshadow you finished? MAC Brule, finally! I’ve been using it for years and eventually managed to finish it.

Last skincare product you finished? Estée Lauder Perfectly Clean Multi-Action Foam Cleanser/Purifying Mask. I literally finished it this morning. I really liked it but I’m trying a different cleanser that I’ll hopefully just as much, if not more, since it’s about half the price!

Skin tone: fair, porcelain
Last Lipstick Finished: My Dior Addict in an orange red. So sad, because I loved that colour.
Last Eye shadow finished: I haven’t really finished any eye shadows in awhile because I am rotating my palettes. But I am putting a huge dent into my UD Mushroom.
Last Skincare product finished: My daily moisturiser – QV Daily Moisturiser with SPF 30. An Australian skincare range that is cruelty free and a great moisturiser for everyday use.

Light medium with neutral undertones. Last lipstick finished was just today – La Splash Lip Coutoure liquid lipstick in Rose Garden. Methinks it wasn’t filled all the way as it was purchased in late May/early June and worn 2x a week. Pretty color that I’ve been unable to match in other liquid lipsticks though. Boo.

Last eyeshadow – I don’t think I’ve ever finished an eyeshadow.

Last skincare – Ole Henriksen Sheer Transformation moisturizer.

Lip: LE Essence Love Letters ? Didn’t realize it was LE, now I am (unsuccessfully) looking for a dupe.
Eye: ?? I panned a couple of Mac ES last winter…
Skin: either Maybelliene Fit Me powder (which I just bought my 3rd one of the year in a deeper shade bc of all the summer fun) or PC’s BHA liquid

Your skin tone/coloring: light to medium-light, gold/yellow
Last lipstick you finished? none, ever — I’ve gotten tired of them and tossed them, but never finished
Last eyeshadow you finished? MAC Outre
Last skincare product you finished? Paula’s Choice — I think I finished four at about the same time: Vitamin C Serum, Calm Redness Relief Repairing Serum, Calm Redness Relief Moisturizer Normal to Oily, Resist Pure Radiance Skin Brightening Treatment. I’m due for an order because I’ll probably be finishing a couple other things in the next week or so.

Your skin tone/coloring: Fair/Pink Undertones

Last lipstick you finished – Rimmel Keep Mauving. I can’t go through the last tiny bit and this week it opened in my purse (for the first time) and half of that tiny bit fell off.
Last eyeshadow you finished – Astor Cappuccino. The perfect bare shadow, probably discontinued. I’ve went though one already and have a big dent in the second one. I also have big dents in some other basic mono’s from MUR (low cost, great quality, very big pans-3 grams?, but soft) which I use everytime I use other single’s,
Last skincare product you finished – can’t remember which one was last. I go though approximately one face cream each 1-1,5 month. I keep to local brands which recently are truly great.

Last lipstick you finished? I honestly don’t know that I’ve ever finished a lipstick. There’s some I use a lot but still not daily so I’ve never gone through a whole one.
Last eyeshadow you finished? MAC Shroom. I use it almost daily and it still took me a few years to go through my first one.
Last skincare product you finished? Probably some Cetaphil face wash which I’d already bought the back up for. It’s my everyday morning face wash and has been for years.

Sorry to say I haven’t finished anything in my life except foundation and mascara! So fickle, I’m always on to the latest new thing…

Skin tone/coloring: Very fair with pink undertones
Last Lipstick Finished: Rouge D’Armani 501

Last lipstick I finished: unless you count samples, I’ve probably never finished a lipstick in my entire life. But I’m pretty sure I’m going to use up UD Ex-Girlfriend before too long, and I’m also trying to finish up all my samples.

Eyeshadow: I’ve never finished an eyeshadow either. I got into makeup a few years ago and immediately became addicted to eyeshadow palettes (and I have LOTS), so I haven’t even hit pan on anything! But I’ve declared a moratorium on palette purchases at least until after Christmas and I’m trying to do a no-buy for the same amount of time (other than replacing everyday products like foundation when I run out).

Last skincare item finished: Balance Me face wash. This is my holy grail makeup remover.
