Your skin tone/coloring: fair/light warm (NC15)

Last product you purchased and loved? NARS Madly blush! It’s my new favorite, it goes with absolutely everything and it’s just such a pretty shade and finish.

Last product you purchased and were disappointed by? MAC Pink Pigeon lipstick, something about the texture seems too slippy. I think that might just be because it’s incredibly hot out and all my lipsticks are a little “melty,” so I’ll try it again after a few minutes in the fridge.

Last product you gifted (or received as a gift)? Hmm, probably a Sephora gift card was my gift!

Your skin tone/coloring: Fair/light neutral

Last product you purchased and loved? Tie between Hask Almond Mint shampoo and conditioner and Trish McEvoy perfume in No. 6 Mandarin and Ginger Lily. I was surprised at how well the Hask products worked. The $5.99 products are now replacing ones I spent $24+ on!

Last product you purchased and were disappointed by? Madison Reed Root Touch Up – totally did not work.

Last product you gifted (or received as a gift)? Received a full size Trish McEvoy scrub from a Neiman Marcus beauty consultant – love it! Probably never would have purchased it but now will continue to buy. I have a LOT of beauty items on my wish list for my birthday (next Tuesday, 9/1) so I’m anxious to see what I get!

Your skin tone/coloring: fair, cool
Last product you purchased and loved? It’s a toss-up between MAC Posh Pedigree quad and Chanel Tisse d’automne quad
Last product you purchased and were disappointed by? “really” disappointed would be Nars Radiant Creamy Concealer – pricey and I wrestle with it to get it not to look dreadful; somewhat disappointing – KvD Shade+Light eyeshadow palette – it’s a great palette but at the same time, it’s both overwhelming and a bit boring (that’s the “all matte” aspect)
Last product you gifted (or received as a gift)? Last product I got as “gift” was Bare Minerals Maverick lipgloss (it was in a Sephora VIB gift bag); last thing I gifted – the original Naked Basics and Glam Glow mask, both to my daughter.

Your skin tone/coloring: NARS Deauville
Last product you purchased and loved? MUA lipliner in Caramel Nougat. It’s lovely paired with a lighter nude lipsticks on my complexion!
Last product you purchased and were disappointed by? Isadora Kajal in Royal Blue. It’s not bad, it’s very creamy and pigmented, but it just doesn’t last in the waterline for me 🙁 I swatched it on my hand before, and it didn’t wear off after washing my hands etc.
Last product you gifted (or received as a gift)? I gave my mother the Collection Lasting Perfection Concealer and a Superdrug moisturiser/serum for her birthday!

Your skin tone/coloring: Porcelain
Last product you purchased and loved? The Sephora + Hakuho-do cheek brush.
Last product you purchased and were disappointed by? Everything I got from Rituel de Fille 🙁
Last product you gifted (or received as a gift)? I sent one of my friends a bunch of ColourPop stuff for her birthday.

Alice, did you order any eyeshadows from Rituel de Fille? Did you find them to be really dry? The colors are really pretty, though. I’m trying to figure out a way to make them work.

Yeah I bought 2 shadows (Nightshade and Serpent de Mer) and 1 lipstick (Shadow Self). The shadows were so hard to work with using a brush that it actually hurt my eyelids trying to get decently opaque coverage. Using my fingers worked better but I have fat, blunt fingers and the jar opening is tiny. Also the lipstick was super dry and patchy.

I’m considering returning everything, because for the price point I expect much higher quality, but I love the packaging and the colors are so unique & pretty. Plus I’d lose something like $12 on the shipping 🙁

My skin tone: Medium with yellow to neutral undertones
The last product I purchased and loved was Sephora brand’s Bubble mask! No kidding this stuff is great! I was on the fence about buying Dr. Brandt’s $69 version and saw this and the good reviews. I’ve used the bubble mask by Bliss too. This one is just as nice for around $20! I like to use it for a quick pick me up (It take 2-3 min.) or before a moisturizing or deep clean mask if I am having a “treat me” moment. It’s a must have if you are into skin care or feeling like your skin gets dull.
Last product I was disappointed in was Chanel’s Rouge Allure Velvet La Boulevesante (51). So, so sad at the performance of this lipstick, gorgeous shade! It had to be returned.
Last thing that was gifted or I gifted: I was just gifted a hand made wood makeup cabinet this week by my uncle. I still have to finish it with some dividers inside and a coat of polyeurythene( I don’t think I spelled that right!). I’m so happy to finally be able to get my stash organized!

Your skin tone/coloring: Fair/cool
Last product you purchased and loved? Sunday Riley Luna Sleeping Oil. I love this product more than any product I have ever owned (which says a lot). It has renewed my skin, making it glowy and soft! It really reduces redness in my skin to the point of never needing makeup. Holy Grail product!
Last product you purchased and were disappointed by? Sunday Riley Good Genes. After being blown away by Luna, I was expecting on loving this, but it peeled my skin off. I even tried it with Sunday Riley Ceramic Slip Cleanser, which dried my skin even further. So in the end, I returned them both. Very disappointing.
Last product you gifted (or received as a gift)? I gifted MAC Set Powder to my sister.

Your skin tone/coloring: very light, neutral-toned.

Last product you purchased and loved? I just got Milani’s lipgloss in Luminoso and Physician’s Formula’s Shimmer Strips eye & face palette in nude, both of which I love.

Last product you purchased and were disappointed by? Either Milani’s Runway Lashes mascara, which promptly flaked all over me, or their new brow pomade, which didn’t go on smoothly. Really surprising, I usually love Milani.

Last product you gifted (or received as a gift)? I think I gave my girlfriend an OCC lip tar for Christmas. I wanna say it was Black Dahlia?

Your skin tone/coloring: Superpale!

Last product you purchased and loved? Loved, like really really loved? Mmmm. Too Faced blush in I Will Always Love You, maybe?

Last product you purchased and were disappointed by? SPF 50 setting spray, by Supergoop! — a brand I generally love, but this stuff feels horrible, smells even worse, and dispenses unevenly. Shudder.

Last product you gifted (or received as a gift)? I gave a few things to my sister recently. I think she was most happy with the YSL Sheer Candy in the berry color, whatever it’s called.

Your skin tone/coloring: fair/neutral
Last product you purchased and loved? Essence LE baked blushes
Last product you purchased and were disappointed by? Essence Plump No Clump Mascara (green packaging, not orange) sooo terrible! It’s insanely wet and gave me the grossest spider lashes of my life!
Last product you gifted (or received as a gift)? This was forever ago but: an Essence lipstick that was discontinued a few weeks ago. And I just realized that I only mentioned Essence products! I always think “hey, two bucks!” and then buy everything, lol! The curse of drugstore makeup.

Your skin tone/coloring: fair neutral redhead
Last product you purchased and loved? Clinique Cheek Pop Nude Pop, Milani’s matte lip cream in Adore, and I was pleasantly surprised by the Maybelline Master Conceal concealer, though the shade match isn’t as good as the Fit Me concealer.
Last product you purchased and were disappointed by? L’oreal Le Matte in She’s So Matte (the color was way off from what I expected). I haven’t had a high end product dud in a long time, I suppose I regret spending points on products for which I redeemed my Sephora points :/
Last product you gifted (or received as a gift)? Perfume for my aunt’s bday, perfume for my mother’s bday, and cologne for an anniversary gift. None of which have been given yet, as they’re all Sept events!

Your skin tone/coloring: Fair, Neutral
Last product you purchased and loved? Burberry Kisses Lipstick
Last product you purchased and were disappointed by? Coola Setting Spray spf 30
Last product you gifted (or received as a gift)? Orly Nail Polish thinner lol

Your skintone/coloring: Medium w/olive undertones MAC C4.5 Studio Fix Liquid foundation, deep brunette, teal green eyes w/ gold flecks.

Last product you purchased and loved: it’s a tie between MAC Royally Riotous and UD After Dark lipsticks! Oh, and Nars Pasiphae, too!

Last product you purchased and were disappointed by: Nyx Jumbo Eye Pencil in Black Bean. Horrible! Made the eyeshadow underneath crease within only 4-5 hours!

Last product you gifted or received as a gift: I bought MAC Free To Be eyeshadow for my daughter a year ago, and a few years ago she had given me MAC Amber Lights and some other MAC e/s that was LE that she had depotted.

Hi, Nancy. You should try Nyx’s Black Eyeshadow Base. It’s not as creamy as Black Bean. It’s closer to a Color Tattoo. You can build it up to how dark you want it. If it works for my super-oily lids, it should work on just about anyone.

Thanks, Rachel, I will try that one instead. What’s really funny is that I had been trying to decide between those two at Ulta, and as I got to the register, I even told the SA what I needed it for, asked her opinion, she claimed the JEP to be better, but it was terrible! Next time, I’ll trust my gut intuition or ask on here.

NW20 but now sunkissed so a little warmer and darker

I loved: MAC cremesheen pearl lipstick in Nippon! Great color, doesnt settle in to the liplines. Goes with any look.
I was disappointed in: Rimmel Kate Moss Nude 45. Too creamy, too pale. Wears off in an ugly way.
I gifted: A lot! Cleared out my beauty collection and gave a lot of natural toned eyeshadows to my friends. Too many browns and neutrals..

* Neutral/fair

* Last product purchased and loved: Circa BB cream and D&G cream eyeshadow in Antique Rose. Oh, and my Sephora drawstring makeup bag!

* Last disappointment: Chanel Les Beiges BB cream and Laura Geller Eye Spackle

*Last item gifted: Have my lipstick-obsessed friend a bunch of unused lipsticks, as well as some eyeshadows: elf and Pixi.

Your skin tone/coloring: very fair skin / with dark brown hair
Last product you purchased and loved? eyeshadow “Boom Boom Room” by Mac – amazing colour
Last product you purchased and were disappointed by? Master Class Palette number III by Smashbox – a big palette, expensive and nothing to do with it, the colours are powdery and so sheer, I tried several times to do something with it, impossible for me
Last product you gifted (or received as a gift)? Tarte Tartellette, my brother in law will bring it back to me friday from Montreal (we don’t have this brand in France) – I am so excited to have it my hands !! :-))

Your skin tone/coloring: light to medium with yellow undertones, dark brown eyes, black hair
Last product you purchased and loved? It was a gift with purchase–a mini Lancome Blush Sweetness palette. The eyeshadows are so soft and pigmented. I actually said “oh wow!” in complete shock and delight.

Last product you purchased and were disappointed by? This is completely my fault and preference. The Real Techniques Expert Face brush actually didn’t live up to its hype. It gives extremely full coverage even with sheer formulas. I am 100% a light coverage person so the brush isn’t my favorite for applying foundation. But! If you like full, flawless coverage, I highly recommend this brush. Also, the NYC Very Black Liquid Liner pen was a bit of a womp for me. It’s basically a somewhat dark brown. The ink is also quite sheer almost so you have to go over the line again and again.

Last product you gifted (or received as a gift)? My husband bought me the Lancome Audacity palette and Shine Lover lipstick in French Sourire for my birthday.

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

Last product you purchased and loved? Too Faced Flush Blush in Baby Love and Nyx Prismatic Shadows (especially Mermaid).

Last product you purchased and were disappointed by? Nyx Studio Perfect Primer in Anti-Redness. I sometimes get a little red through the cheeks. This did nothing for the redness.

Last product you gifted (or received as a gift)? It’s been years since I last gifted makeup. It was an purple eyeshadow palette for a former friend’s birthday. I can’t remember the brand; she picked it out. I don’t really know any makeup users IRL any more, so I only receive gifts if I request specific ones from my hubby and kids for my birthday or Christmas. I got several items for Christmas last year: The Tarte Pin-up blush palette, Too Faced lipsticks, some MAC, and a few other things.

I have Mermaid and Smoke And Mirrors, I love them both so much! Yesterday, I used both in a gorgeous eye look, with Nyx Root Beer as my blending/transition shade, MUFE I-528: Perfection!

I’ve heard their green CC cream is really good, but Ulta was out of it when I visited, so I got the Studio Perfect instead. I’m still hoping to find the CC cream. Target and Ulta are always out of it. I may have to resort to ordering online.

I recently tried the IT Cosmetics Bye Bye Redness Correcting Creme. It worked fabulously, but was way too dark for my fair skin, so I need to return it. For anyone above an NW10 (unlike me), it would probably work.

Your skin tone/coloring: light, cooler

Last product you purchased and loved? MAC Nightmoth pencil. I haven’t gotten to use it a whole lot yet, but I CAN tell what the fuss is about–it’s so emollient for a pencil, and super blendable and pigmented. Honestly it’s just a treat to apply. Looking very forward to getting to know it better. The most recent great buy that I’ve already gotten a lot of use from is UD Radium liquid liner. Bummer that it was discontinued. I feel like it’s probably just to change packaging or tweak the color ever so slightly but I don’t think that’s necessary; it was perfect as it was.

Last product you purchased and were disappointed by? I really hate to say this but MAC Burmese Kiss l/s! I don’t like the way it sits on the lips, I think it looks heavy. Also the color is just a bit light for me. Other people seem to like it and I remember it got a good review here, but I just can’t bring myself to love it the way I’d hoped.

Last product you gifted (or received as a gift)? My best friend and I tried to re-gift our Sephora birthday NARS pencils to each other! lol I gave my mother a lot of makeup for her birthday too, including UD Catright lipstick, an Armani eyeshadow, and MAC Rose Pigment.

Skin tone: medium light with yellow undertone.
Loved: NARS single eyeshadows in Mekong and Galapagos. Urban Decay singles in Blunt, Riff, and Lounge.
Disappointing: NARS duo in Marie-Galante.
Gifted (to my mum): Too Faced Chocolate Bar palette.

Your skin tone/coloring: Deep/Dark NW50

Last product you purchased and loved? I LOVE the NYX Micro Brow Pencil in Brunette and Espresso. I use Brunette in the front of the brow and Espresso on the tail. It’s an awesome pencil and a total dupe for the ABH Brow Wiz. I also recently purchased the Colour Pop Highlighter in Most Necessary and a lippie stix in Toucan. Most Necessary is a gorgeous Rose Gold situation and Toucan is beautiful coral-strawberry color. They’re both quite lovely.

Last product you purchased and were disappointed by? MAC Cosmetics “Highlighter” from the Wash and Dry Collection. That thing was pitiful! Runner up to that wack highlighter is sadly a Colour Pop item. I purchased the eyeshadow in Shark Attack and there was hardly any pigmentation. It was not opaque like the rest of my products from them. I probably own over 20 CP items and this is the first one to let me down. It’s ok though, but I’m going to use it as a highlighter!

Last product you gifted (or received as a gift)? Before Kiko became available in the US this month, my home-girl from Ireland shipped me a huge package of Kiko products for me to try. I must say, I’m in love with that brand! They do eye products very well. Check out the Shadow Stick in #31. The online “swatch” does not do it justice! Pop that in the water line and you’re good to go honey!

Your skin tone/coloring: fair/light cool

Last product you purchased and loved? Revlon PhotoReady Powder in Translucent

Last product you purchased and were disappointed by? I just bought some Flower products yesterday to try them out and was disappointed by the Kiss Stick colors I got (Nude Narcissus and Morning Glory). They are super light and make me look pale and I am pale enough. The formula isn’t bad but I will try and find a way to make the colors work by layering them or using a darker lip liner underneath.

Last product you gifted (or received as a gift)? I gifted myself an acrylic organizer recently as it is my birthday tomorrow. I give my sister all the makeup I don’t use anymore or bought and just don’t like and I did that a few months ago so I guess that could count as ‘gifting’.

Your skin tone/coloring?: Yellow Medium Tan (MAC NC37-40
Last product you purchased and loved?: Maybelline Creamy Matte Lipstick in Nude Nuance (obsessed!)
Last product you purchased and were disappointed by?: Smashbox Camera Ready BB Water
Last product you gifted (or received as a gift)?: DK Cashmere perfume

Your skin tone/coloring: light medium/warm

Last product you purchased and loved? Laura Mercier Caviar Stick – I have 5 colors of this now, just love the easy of application and the longevity!

Last product you purchased and were disappointed by? Coola SPF makeup setting spray – the setting power was pretty good and I appreciate having the SPF, but there was so little product in the container it ran out really fast.

Last product you gifted (or received as a gift)? Mac Fix+ spray (received as gift) – Love this! It takes away the dry look after setting powder, refreshes and hydrates, and smells really nice! I just wish I could still get the LE yuzu-scented version.

Your skin tone/coloring: Fair
Last product you purchased and loved? Ellis Faas Skin Veil Foundation. I can’t believe I spent this much on foundation… and amazingly I don’t regret it. Of course, it helps that the colour is a perfect match.
Last product you purchased and were disappointed by? Chanel Stylo Yeux in Erable. Colour is gorgeous but ouch! Seriously, it’s so stiff that it hurts to apply.
Last product you gifted (or received as a gift)? Gave my mum Kat Von D Double Dare. Her first liquid lipstick! 🙂

Skintone/Coloring: Fairly light, very neutral; dark-featured.

Loved: Too Faced Air Buffed BB Creme in Snow Glow (the tub version; it was $8 at Nordstrom Rack, so I took a chance). The color isn’t perfect, but nothing ever is, but it’s close enough. It’s also a bit too heavy for this heatwave we’re having, but my dry skin is looking forward to using it this Winter!

I stumbled upon NYX Lip Liner in Black Berry, and was quite surprised to find a black lip liner! I do a sort of ombre effect when I wear vampy lips, but I’ve always had to go with eyeliner, so this is another product I’m looking forward to. The same day, I came across Ruby Kisses Matte Lipsticks, and I plan to by a few more.

Disappointed: I always swatch first, so this rarely happens… I guess I’d have to say Black Opal Lipstick in Ebony Wine; it’s a bit patchy, but it’s not so bad I can’t work with it.

Gift/Gifted: Every time I go to ULTA while my daughter’s with me, I let her pick out a NYX lipstick. I think the last one was Rose… She’s amassing quite the little stash, LOL! “Santa” also left a few things in her stocking last Christmas, including the UD Sephora perk, which was an eyeshadow quad & liner.

I’m NC42 and the last product that I purchased and loved was Mac Polished Up lipstick because it’s my perfect nude shade. I was disappointed by Kat Von D Monarch eyeshadow palette because the formula has a lot of fallout. Last product i gifted was Tocca Stella perfume.

Your skin tone/coloring: NC 15/20

Last product you purchased and loved? Charlotte Tilbury Eyes to Mesmerize or Marc Jacobs Le Marc Lip Creme Lipsticks.

Last product you purchased and were disappointed by? It’s been a while so I don’t really remember. I tend to do my research on products or test them out first so I haven’t been disappointed

Last product you gifted (or received as a gift)? I whole ton of Body Shop stuff for my sister.

Your skin tone/coloring: MUFE #7 Pink
Last product you purchased and loved? Bumble & Bumble Surf Infusion and the Briogeo Don’t Despair, Repair!™ Deep Conditioning Mask.
Last product you purchased and were disappointed by? Dior Addict Fluid Shadow
Last product you gifted (or received as a gift)? I recently sent my youngest daughter the Sun Disk Bronzer by Sephora and two lip glosses, one Tarte and one Urban Decay.

Your skin tone/coloring: light-medium with yellow undertones
Last product you purchased and loved? I just bought a bunch of Urban Decay stuff today that I’m loving! In particular, UD Matte Revolution in After Dark 🙂
Last product you purchased and were disappointed by? Hmm not too sure (good thing!) maybe the UD Canonball Waterproof mascara I received as a birthday present. It had been on my wishlist but it was so dry and not lengthening at all!
Last product you gifted (or received as a gift)? I just gave a bunch of unloved products to my cousin who’s in high school! So not necessarily gifted, but re-homed 🙂

Your skin tone/coloring: NC-35
Last product you purchased and loved? nyx soft matte lip cream in copenhagen! a gorgeous color for fall and while it does transfer (which i was expecting since i have abu dhabi) it doesn’t fade nearly as horrifically as some of my other reds, especially with liner.
Last product you purchased and were disappointed by? l’oreal colour riche lipsticks in some colors that i can’t remember (i returned them a day later lol). one looked like a nice dark brown and the other looked like a medium brown but they ended up being sheer and really bad looking on me. they looked so pretty in the tube!
Last product you gifted (or received as a gift)? my aunt bought me mac viva glam iii and i LOVE it, it’s probably one of my favorite colors EVER and the formula is great. i’ll cherish it forever since there’s no way i’ll buy mac with my own money at this point haha. last thing i gifted was colourpop frida for my mom because she wanted a pinkish thing to wear for nice things – she loves it and it’s one of the only lip products she wears now!

Your skin tone/coloring: Light warm
Last product you purchased and loved? Honestly? Not sure. I think the ColourPop Ultra Matte Lips. Everything else has been ehh or not good at all
Last product you purchased and were disappointed by? oh boy. The Nyx HD eyeshadow base and Makeup Revolution’s velvet matte lip lacquer. The base was greasy and oily and creased so badly and was just all around terrible. The lip lacquer applied nicely and was a nice color but it was so sticky that I couldn’t stand wearing it.
Last product you gifted (or received as a gift)? My best friend bought me the Too Faced Chocolate Bar palette for my birthday! I also just gifted her ColourPop’s Bumble and Trap because she hasn’t been feeling well lately 🙁

Skintone: fair neutral

Recent love: Youngblood lipstick in Bistro, a deep burgundy. I wasn’t sure what to expect – first purchase of this brand! – but I looove it.

Recent disappointment: MAC Morange lipstick (the LE edition in the sunset packaging, forget the collection name). It’s a decent performer but for some reason, the colour oxidises on me and darkens quite a bit from the shade it is at application. So it doesn’t stay such a vivid orange.

Gift: Nails Inc varnish in British Racing Green for a friend who likes Formula 1.

Your skin tone/coloring: Light olive
Last product you purchased and loved?: Estee Lauder Pure Color Envy lipstick in Emotional
Last product you purchased and were disappointed by?: Clarins Joli Rouge in 737 Spicy Cinnamon
Last product you gifted (or received as a gift)?: Rodial Stemcell Super-Food Multi Glam Balm

Your skin tone/coloring: light medium with yellow and olive undertones
Last product you purchased and loved? Becca Serrana highlighter/bronzer duo, so blendable, so good for my skin tone!
Last product you purchased and were disappointed by? I didn’t like how tacky the Make Up Store lipgloss wands can be, but aside of that I have no complaints about anything for now!
Last product you gifted (or received as a gift)? If it counts, I gave a friend this a Wet n Wild highlighter when I was destashing, but I haven’t really *gifted* anything in a while — I should tho!

Oh! Actually! I was a bit disappointed in UD’s De-Slick setting spray. I am still experimenting with it to see if there’s a way it will work for me but first off, denatured alcohol second on the ingredients list makes it unsuitable for regular wear for me. Second, I felt like it made me *shinier* after I sprayed it on and I needed to blot and powder like 30 minutes after I applied my makeup! I followed instructions but maybe I need to spray it even further away. Third, it didn’t do much to control oil for me as the day wore on . It’s not looking good — I hope there is a way it will work for me though.

If you use a foundation brush, try spritzing the brush with it. Or, if you normally apply a setting powder, try spraying after powdering.

Ohh thanks, I’ll have to try that! Do you know if it works with powder foundations too?I tried it sprayed on before putting my makeup on today — when I sprayed it on after I’d done my face, setting powders and all, it just broke my makeup down quicker than my face’s own oils would have.

Your skin tone/coloring: Fair/Neutral

Last product you purchased and loved? Estee Lauder Stay in Place Concealer – Great wear, durable doesn’t mark lines, loved it!
Last product you purchased and were disappointed by? Bourjois Rouge Edition Aqua Laque in 02 – Too liquid, applies in streakes, doesn’t adhere to lips and bleeds – Beautiful colour but don’t bother
Last product you gifted (or received as a gift)? Essence Silky Touch Blush in 20 – Great colour payoff, buildable finish – Don’t usually gift makeup but my mom stole mine and had to get her a new one when she came crying when it was over 😀

♥ Your skin tone/coloring:
• Dark to Medium-Deep
• Warm undertone, with a touch of Neutral
• NC44.5 to NC45

♥ Last product you purchased and loved?
• MAC Prep & Prime Fix+ in Lavender.
▬ I’m addicted to it. I’m trying not to waste it, though. Every drop is sooo precious. I sound like Smigel. 🙂 I wish I had gotten my hands on Cucumber, as well.

♥ Last product you purchased and were disappointed by?
• Estée Lauder Double Wear Foundation
▬ Bought into the hype and… Ugh! That foundation and I just did not agree. My face felt overly dry — which is weird, since I’m an oily skin type. It immediately reminded me of the MUFE Mat Velvet, which I can’t stand either!

♥ Last product you gifted (or received as a gift)?
• MAC Lipstick in Heroine
▬ Gave it to my friend for her birthday. She always wanted that shade, but couldn’t find the logic behind spending $16 for a tube of lipstick. So, I found the logic for her — which is pretty easy for a makeup junkie 😛 — and bought it. She was REALLY happy to receive it, and she wears it frequently.

Your skin tone/coloring: I though I had a warm light to fair skin tone, it seems I’m quite neutral, but around NC/NW 20

Last product you purchased and loved? MAC Sweet Sakura lipstick

Last product you purchased and were disappointed by? A single eyeshadow from Dior, why don’t I learn! But it was about a year ago, so I have maybe learnt my lesson. Check Temtalia before buying!

Last product you gifted (or received as a gift)? I gave my friend a Burt’s Bees lipgloss, I had recieved in a subscription box. She doesn’t use much makeup but I thought a nice gloss would be welcome. I think she liked it. I don’t really have any friends who are into makeup at all. Pity, because sometimes you really want to talk about a new release or a disappointing product, or just share the happiness of a perfect lipcolour.

Your skin tone/coloring: light medium/warm
Last product you purchased and loved? : Too Faced Born This
Way foundation!it’s good than I expected!
Last product you purchased and were disappointed by?: Colour Pop Ultra Matte Lip.make my lips dry like no tomorrow.it seem like for a liquid lipsticks I can only used KVD one
Last product you gifted (or received as a gift)?: I gave my parent a Diptyque Votive Candle set last week! they were love it after smell them at my house two weeks ago

Your skin tone/coloring: NC10-15

Last product you purchased and loved: Mac Soft Brown, such a versatile shade and well pigmented!

Last product you purchased and were disappointed by: Mac Shale – no pigmentation comes of and on my warm skintone it shows none of the beautiful purple you see in the pan, but looks plain grey.

Last product you recieved as a gift: Urban Decay Fireball (Thanks sis!-I love it soooo much)

Your skin tone/coloring: Fair/Light w/ Neutral Undertones
Last product you purchased and loved? Givenchy Phenomen Eyes Mascara
Last product you purchased and were disappointed by? Chanel Le Volume de Chanel Mascara (it’s gotten better the longer i’ve had it but still doesnt do that much better than my other mascaras to make the price tag worth it)
Last product you gifted (or received as a gift)? I gifted the Too Faced Semi-Sweet Chocolate Bar palette to a friend for her high school graduation gift.

Your skin tone/coloring: Fair/light neutral

Last product you purchased and loved? Kat Von D Liquid Lipstick in Ayesha

Last product you purchased and were disappointed by? Nyx eyeshadow single in STFU. Not very pigmented and I wish I had just spent the money to buy Make Up Forever Mimosa eyeshadow instead.

Last product you gifted (or received as a gift)? LunatiCK Cosmetics Labs new lipsticks and Hocus Pocus palette. Bruja and RPG are pretty (but pretty much the same color) but are lighter than my lips are naturally, so I’m not sure how often I will wear them. Cinderhella is beautiful but stains my lips so badly that I’m not sure it’s worth it (still-stained-the-next-day bad). The eyeshadows are very soft and blend into nothingness and get patchy if you get too vigorous with sweeping motions. They are beautiful colors and very pigmented so I’m sure I just need to play with them until I get used to the formula. I’ll probably use the eyshadows more than the lipsticks.

Your skin tone/coloring: NC15/20, Neutral (but can lean yellow in certain foundations)

Last product you purchased and loved? NARS Dual Intensity Shadows in Phoebe, Cassiopeia, and Callisto

Last product you purchased and were disappointed by? Too Faced “Soul Mates” Blushing Bronzer in Carrie & Big. It just wasn’t pigmented enough to show up, even on my very fair skin!

Last product you gifted (or received as a gift)? Gifted NARS Bronzer in Irresistiblement to a friend, was too dark for my skin tone.

Your skin tone/coloring: Medium/dark (NC45 in MAC).

Last product you purchased and loved? The Dreamy Glow highlighter by Charlotte Tilbury from her Norman Parkinson collection. It really does what it says– it gives the dreamiest glow!

Last product you purchased and were disappointed by? Josie Maran’s tinted version of her SPF 47 Argan Daily Moisturizer. Surprisingly, the tinted one leaves a cast/makes me look ashy, and the regular one (which I love) does not.

Last product you gifted (or received as a gift)? A Jack Black set for my best friend, because he already loves their stuff, as well as another one I’ve hidden away for my boyfriend until it’s his bday.

Last product purchase and loved: Makeup geek blushes and cosmopolitan single eye-shadow. Last purchase and hate: Makeup geek foiled eyeshadows, not as nice quality as the single eye-shadow cosmopolitan, cost $3 more, Tarts blush in blissful, it was so tightly baked it gave hardly any color payoff, it was have been a doggy one. Last product you were gifted, nothing, I buy my own makeup.

Your skin tone/coloring: Fair, neutral. NARS Gobi in Sheer Glow
Last product you purchased and loved? MUFE Pro Bronze Fusion bronzer (I have it in 15i Amber). Magic for getting that sun kissed glow to my pale skin! Very hard to overdo and not powdery at all! Got Sephora #43 bronzing brush (discontinued though) to go with it and it’s perfection! One thing – I don’t think its good for contouring, need more smth like Baby don’t Go from MAC.
Also, MAC Mineralize foundation Loose. My MAC SA suggested it as an alternative to MSFN, it is not!, but I still use it as a setting powder (small amount) for my liquid foundation (MUFE Liquid Lift and NARS Sheer Glow) and ! loove the finish.
Last product you purchased and were disappointed by? Gosh. As we just got UD here, I ran and bought myself some stuff, including 24/7 Velvet eye pencil in Lush. It was a disaster! It did not want to apply to my lids easily, when it did it was patchy and… it flaked!!! We cannot return makeup here in Russia at all, but I went to the store, applied it there, had to do some convincing like “how am I supposed to use it at all?” and they ended up exchanging it with 24/7 Glide On in Smoke which I totally love. Mind you, on my hand Lush swatched beautifully and even, dunno what the problem was.
Last product you gifted (or received as a gift)? Everyone knows not to give me makeup, cause I’m too particular about it. They give me money and know that I’ll most likely spend it on makeup :))) Last make up I gifted was MAC Woodwinked eye shadow.

Your skin tone/coloring: light/light medium with warm undertone
Last product you purchased and loved? Giorgio Armani Maestro Fusion Makeup. My new favourite foundation! It’s so smooth and gives skin a no-make up look, really fresh and evens out everything.
Last product you purchased and were disappointed by?Anastasia Beverly Hills Shadow Couture World Traveler Palette. I really expected more from this. Most colours have no good pigmentation and there is a lot of fallout. I expected the shadows to be more buttery and pigmented and easy to apply. I really struggle to apply them. So sad..
Last product you gifted (or received as a gift)? Chanel Rouge Coco Shine lipstick in 97 DÉSINVOLTE. Love it !! I really wanted something coral, but easy to apply and suitable for daytime.

Your skin tone/coloring: NC50
Last product you purchased and loved? Sephora Microsmooth Powder Foundation
Last product you purchased and were disappointed by? MUFE Pro Finish Powder Foundation
Last product you gifted (or received as a gift)? A body cream from Bath and Body Works that I’ve fallen in love with that has since been discontinued! ?
