Your skin tone/coloring: MAC NC23! Light, with warm undertones!

What was the last skincare product you tried?: Juice Beauty SPF30 Sport sunscreen! I’m loving it!

What was the last brand you tried?: Juice Beauty or The Ordinary.

What was the last lip product you tried?: Givenchy Rouge Interdit Lipstick! AMAZING

I’m OBSESSED!! oh my goodness! I got 6 things from The Ordinary so far. and i’m already eyeing others!!!!

My favourites so far are the vitamin C serums, and the moisturizing factors + HA!!! May I ask what you’ve been loving so far? 😀

I love almost everything! Azelaic Acid Suspension 10% , Lactic Acid 5% + HA 2%, Alpha Arbutin 2% + HA, and Niacinamide 10% + Zinc 1%…like everything!

I don’t have the exact shade number on me right this second, but it’s a bright, hot pink I have!!

It’s SO creamy, but not so creamy it slips and slides outside my lip line/feathers. It feels smoothing and lightly hydrating on my lips (I get more moisture from this, than I get from BITE amuse Bouche lipsticks. if that helps!!!)

It smells really good, in my opinion. But it’s a light enough scent it doesn’t trigger a head acne for me.

Also the staying power! Oh man! It lasts through coffee, and light eating!! Which Is exactly what I want in a creamy/tube lipstick!!! 😀

Your skin tone/coloring: Fair/light with neutral undertones.
What was the last skincare product you tried? I tried Tree Hut Exfoliating Mud Mask, I wasn’t a huge fan off it since I have sensitive skin but my boyfriend liked it!
What was the last brand you tried? Bobbi Brown! For some reason I don’t think I’ve ever really had a chance to try their products.
What was the last lip product you tried? Tarte Rainforest of the Sea lipstick in Set Sail. I really like it!

Skin tone/coloring: Fair with neutral undertones

What was the last skincare product you tried? The Tatcha Water Cream moisturizer. It was nice, but nothing groundbreaking.

What was the last brand you tried? I have tried any new brands recently but I just placed my first Glossier order yesterday, so I’ll be trying a couple of their products soon!

What was the last lip product you tried? The GrandeLips Hydrating Lip Plumper. Definitely plumping but not uncomfortable!

Your skin tone/coloring: Light-to-medium
What was the last skincare product you tried? NIOD Fractionated Eye Contour Concentrate
What was the last brand you tried? It Cosmetics (sample of Bye Bye Redness)
What was the last lip product you tried? Chanel Rouge Coco Stylo in Fiction (222)

OOOO…Tracey what did you think of the Rouge Stylo in Fiction?? It is on my list to try because I really love the other two Stylos I have. 🙂

I adore it! On me, it’s the perfect reddy-orange with a sheen that makes it perfect for summer. I have another in red, and am liking this formula quite a bit!!

Which 2 do you have, Nicole?

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

What was the last skincare product you tried? Paula’s Choice CALM Redness Relief SPF 30 Mineral Moisturizer for Normal to Oily Skin. I’ve been using it for about 3 or 4 months now. I’m really loving it. It makes my skin feel so soft.

What was the last brand you tried? I think Paula’s Choice was the last new brand I tried.

What was the last lip product you tried? Jeffree Star Velour Liquid Lipstick in Scorpio. I can see why it’s such a fan favorite. It’s gorgeous.

Your skin tone/coloring: Porcelain, dry and sensitive with redness.

What was the last skincare product you tried? Korres greek yoghurt sleeping facial. I like it but idk if I’ll buy a full size jar, I’m going to keep trying other night creams.

What was the last brand you tried? Farmacy. I got a handful of minis from Sephora recently and so far I really like them.

What was the last lip product you tried? Love & Toast lip butters. They’re inexpensive ($3, compared to a lot of “natural” lip products being $5+) and don’t have petrolatum/mineral oil. They’re perfect for my night stand and purse where I don’t like to have potted balms.

Your skin tone/coloring: Deep Dark NW 50
What was the last skincare product you tried? The Ordinary Rose Hip Seed Oil
What was the last brand you tried? The Ordinary (loving this brand right now!)
What was the last lip product you tried? Tarte Lip Scrub

Your skin tone/coloring: Medium with warm undertones

What was the last skincare product you tried? CeraVe AM moisturizer, Love the spf 30 in it, im on bottle #2

What was the last brand you tried? ColourPop, loving their shadows!

What was the last lip product you tried? Colourpop ultra glossy lip in Polished, i love blotting the shine/gloss away, this creates a great matte metallic lip look

Your skin tone/coloring:
•What was the last skincare product you tried? Lush Dark Angel-bae!
•What was the last brand you tried? Clinique
•What was the last lip product you tried? NYX Soft Lip Cream in Praline

Your skin tone/coloring: Fair with neutral/olive undertones (my profile pic is actually with a tan)
What was the last skincare product you tried? A couple of days ago I impulsively tested the Mario Badescu rose water face spritz at Ulta…it came right home with me. (Not sure if it’s doing anything miraculous but I love the smell of rose water!)
What was the last brand you tried? Oh My! I finally tried a Marc Jacobs palette (in Scandalust) and I’m not sure how I hadn’t tried the Marc shadows in the past!!! They are effortless to blend, which is no small feat on hooded eyes. Super quick and easy. They are exquisite.
What was the last lip product you tried? Not sure. I wore the Urban Decay Shadowheart gloss today, but as for something I’d not yet tried… I bought and wore some Colourpop liquid satin lipsticks last week. No matter how many brands I try, liquid lippies still aren’t my thing. 🙂

Your skin tone/coloring: fair, warm; blue eyes, light brown hair w/copper highlights

What was the last skincare product you tried? Paula’s Choice Resist Triple-Action Dark Spot Eraser 7% AHA Lotion. Jury’s still out. Though I’m liking the several other PC products I’ve been picking up over last weeks.

What was the last brand you tried? Cle de Peau — the concealer in Ivory. For me, this lives up to the hype.

What was the last lip product you tried? Estee Lauder Naked Truth. Great color on me.

As far as that Paula product goes, never skip a day. It works, but if you stop or forget, you are likely to have a rebound effect. There’s also a C spot eraser, unless they d/c’d it. If you do one am and one pm, you will really see a reduction of dark spots. But if you get lazy, you won’t have such good effects, but you won’t go back to baseline either. That’s what I found, anyway.

Your skin tone/coloring: NC15-20, fair/light and warmish neutral.
What was the last skincare product you tried? Glossier Priming Moisturizer (eh) and Algenist retinol serum (amazing).
What was the last brand you tried? Glossier (so far I LOVE the cloud paints, really like the balm dot com, and am eh about the primer).
What was the last lip product you tried? Tarte color splash in Rum Punch (I LOVE it! I got the sample size in a Sephora Favorites kit. I’m going to buy the full size asap.)

~nw20. The Cosrx rice based sleeping mask. Prob is, with using differin, IDK if it is advisable over it. Using differin cuts down on your nighttime routine, f’sure, and it’s VERY slow. Last brand:Manyo Factory. The galactomyces niacin STE. Same issue. Differin seems to take up a lot of space, where a few products were layered, and now it’s hard to fit them in. Before that, it was the Ordinary. Love the availability of a water base and the low # ingredients lists. You really can see if X is good for you, less than effective, or bothersome. Last lip tried: last one on the planet. ABH gloss. So heavily disliked their LL, that I didn’t want to. But got that fall 16 set, and it’s very nice.

Your skin tone/coloring: V. Fair/Cool

What was the last skincare product you tried? The new Tatcha Violet C Radiance Mask

What was the last brand you tried? I just got my first order for Herbivore out of the mailbox; will be trying tonight and tomorrow – does that count?

What was the last lip product you tried? I added a few more of the CdP lipsticks to my wardrobe after loving the first two I got. Brand, brand new/not tried previously though would be the Bite Liquid Lip in Cava. I like it, not sure I love it or think it’s HG status.

Your skin tone/coloring: Light, medium, cool

What was the last skincare product you tried?
I decided to try the recommendation of my trusted facial spa adviser. The line is Sente. I like–almost love– it. I LOVE Biologique Recherche (BR) full stop, and it’s hard for me to break the connection (will give up my P50 1970 no matter what). But Sente is proving to fulfill its claims. I like the science behind it. I like how it is keeping up the condition of my skin, and it is more affordable than the collection of products I was using from BR. I’ll continue to asses, and, at my age, skin care is super critical. So far, so good.

What was the last brand you tried?
Chanel foundation in Le Teint Ultra Tenue. This foundation, topped with Becca mineral foundation powder, has women at work, and today at my hair salon, asking what I’m using on my face. Why I look so glow-y. This has never happened to me before. Think I have a winning combo! The foundation AND Chanel’s Golden Sun blush!

What was the last lip product you tried?
A lip gloss (full size sample) from Trish McAvoy. I know nothing about this line. But I will say this is, in my 50+ years, the BEST lip gloss I have ever used. Hands down. I didn’t know glosses could be this good. The texture, hydration, wear, shine — all A+. I will explore others and repurchase this nude I have when I run out.

Skintone / coloring : light, NC 20, med brown hair and eyes

Last skincare: Simple cleansing oil

Last brand you tried: Not sure if this is supposed to be so open ended but I’m going to take it as just a brand I’ve tried in general. That would be Bare Minerals foundation/setting powder. It feels lightweight yet covers and keeps me matte longer. I have never tried their foundation before since mineral powder foundation is such a foreign concept to me but liking it so far !

Last lip product : Tarte Tarteist Lip Paint in Festival. It’s decent.

Your skin tone/coloring: Porcelain, with pink undertones

What was the last skincare product you tried? Chia Seed Oil at night night time. Very nourishing.

What was the last brand you tried? Clinique – the gentle milk cleanser for sensitive skin.

What was the last lip product you tried? Clarins Jolie Rouge lipstick in Red Terra – today’s lipstick.

Your skin tone/coloring: Medium w/ olive undertones MAC NC37 or Lancôme Teint Idole Foundation N360, deep plummy-brunette, blue-green eyes w/ gold flecks.

What was the last skincare product you tried? Mint Pear Vitamin C Serum. It had come in an Ipsy Bag a few months back, but only recently tried it out. Not bad, but it left my skin feeling a little sticky, so I may try it again when this humidity dies down a bit.

What was the last brand you tried? Probably one of a gazillion hair products! Which one was first is anyone’s guess because I no longer remember. ?

What was the last lip product you tried? UD Oil Slick Lipstick. I absolutely love it alone or layered, which is surprising! Wearing it alone was at the end of the day after having eaten, so my lips were quite rosy beforehand.

Your skin tone/coloring: Neutral/cool and very fair. I’m NW 10/13 in MAC and can get away with NW 15 in the summer. My favorite foundation is Meow’s Inquisitive Sphynx, and I’m not sure why the foundation matrix thinks it’s a yellow-toned foundation because it’s really neutral leaning cool on my skin. Ash blond/brown hair and green eyes.

What was the last skincare product you tried? Face oil! And I really like it so far. Apparently, putting more oil on my oily skin is helping it be less oily. Combined with the rest of my skincare routine, I’m getting fewer blemishes and the post-inflammatory hyperpigmentation is fading.

What was the last brand you tried? Nudestix.

What was the last lip product you tried? Nudestix Magnetic Matte lip crayon in “Rose”, from my Ipsy bag. The color is MLBB for my pigmented lips and it is really, really pretty.

Your skin tone/coloring: fair ivory, neutral undertones, redness
What was the last skincare product you tried? The Ordinary Advanced Retinoid 2%
What was the last brand you tried? Rouge Bunny Rouge
What was the last lip product you tried? Rouge Bunny Rouge Colour Burst Lipstick in Raw Silence

Your skin tone/coloring: NC15 w/some redness (and medication-induced uber-sensitivity)

What was the last skincare product you tried? Cetaphil Daily Hydrating Lotion with Hyaluronic Acid. It’s like my higher end Sephora moisturizers, but twice the size and less then half the price.

What was the last brand you tried? Hmm, maybe Glossier?

What was the last lip product you tried? Charlotte Tilbury Pink Venus lip pencil (from a set during the Nordstrom sale)

Your skin tone/coloring: NW45-NW47 neutral leaning cool tones
What was the last skincare product you tried? Skin drink from Lush
What was the last brand you tried? Clinique
What was the last lip product you tried? Lip stylo Fall 2.0 from Kiko ( one of the best in my opinion)

Your skin tone/coloring:
Light neutral, black hair with natural gray highlights, green eyes

What was the last skincare product you tried?
Estee Lauder Resilience Lift Face Creme, a gift with purchase. It was ok, but I went back to the Clinique product that I’ve been using for years. My skin can be difficult, and seems to like Clinique better than anything else, either drugstore or high end.

What was the last brand you tried?
The last new brand I tried was a Sigma eyeshadow that was a freebie that came with a brush order I received. It’s a very bright lime green called Midori that’s totally wrong for my eye color. But it seems to have a nice texture and I am trying to figure out a fun way to use it.

What was the last lip product you tried?
ColourPop Ultra Matte Lipstick in Bad Habit. It was a freebie that came with my last Ultra Satin order. I can’t believe how it dried the second I put it on! It’s a pretty color, but it is too dry for me, so I’ll stick to the Ultra Satins.

My skin tone is light with warm undertones. My newest skincare that I’m loving is the alpha arbutin serum from The Ordinary and Tula’s neck cream. My newest brand is Lancôme with their new mascara with fibers which I love. My newest lip product is the long lasting lip pencil from IT cosmetics.

Skin tone/coloring: Fair with neutral undertones
The last skincare product I have tried: Clinique Fresh Pressed™ 7-Day System with Pure Vitamin C
The last brand I have tried: Nyx
The last lip product I have tried: Burberry 17 Dark Rosewood liquid velvet, Laura Mercier Dry Rose

Your skin tone/coloring: MAC NW 20 – light with pink undertones

What was the last skincare product you tried?: Hotel bar soap. Apart from that, I stick to mostly Neutrogena.

What was the last brand you tried?: Urban Decay – the Revolution lipsticks

What was the last lip product you tried?: Wet n Wild Fucshia with Blue Pearl (newer formula) – as a good dupe for Mac Show Orchid. With a light touch, it is flattering.

skin tone/colouring: medium warm
last skin care product I tried: Decleor Night Cream
last brand I tried: Huda Beauty (lip topper in Mystical, Rose Gold shadow palette, just ordered Summer Solstice highlighter)
last lip product I tried: Chanel Rouge Allure in Admirable

OMG…I forgot when I got the Huda Beauty palette I also got the Jouer Skinny Dip palette. My first time with anything Jouer. I LOVE it. The shadows are more beautiful and blend better than anything I have ever tried. I remember reading someone else’s review of the Marc Jacobs shadows that I feel this way about Jouer.
