Your skin tone/coloring: above with freckles, green/gray/blue eyes, warm brown hair.

Favorite silver eyeshadow? Cyborg from the ABH Sultry palette.

Favorite blue eyeshadow? Any of the blues in the BH Cosmetics Blueberry Muffin palette.

Favorite hydrating skincare product? Shea Moisture Manuka Honey and Yogurt Glow Getter Pressed Serum Moisturizer. It’s beautiful.

Your skin tone/coloring: Light-medium with warm yellow undertones, dark brown hair and eyes.

Favorite silver eyeshadow? MAC Glich in the Matrix (which I recently added to my collection and can’t believe I like it more than Knights Divine).

Favorite blue eyeshadow? MAC In the Shadows (which I never know if it’s discontinued or not 😅).

Favorite hydrating skincare product? Paula’s Choice Peptide Booster, it’s that special something that really plumps my skin and makes it feel really hydrated.

Your skin tone/coloring: pale, cool
Favorite silver eyeshadow? Silver isn’t really a colour I wear much but I guess ABH Cyborg comes as close as anything to a “favourite”
Favorite blue eyeshadow? lately, it’s ABH Claudia (a very dark and grey-ish blue)
Favorite hydrating skincare product? a cocktail of Youth to the People Glowberry Oil topped with Embryolisse Creme Concentree. Lately, for my body, I’ve been lavishing on the Johnson’s Baby Oil and it has been really quite wonderful.

Your skin tone/coloring: Below my name

Favorite silver eyeshadow? None. It doesn’t do anything for me so I don’t own any.

Favorite blue eyeshadow? None. It’s like silver for me. Green works, though.

Favorite hydrating skincare product? Purito Dermide Cica Barrier Sleeping Pack. This stuff is pleasant to sleep in because it does not feel heavy and I wake up with plumper skin. I also use it on my hands, where the improved hydration is really obvious. I recall this was a recommendation from jkh, so thanks.

Purito rules. Cica rules. Though I tried gotu kola tea and it made me feel nauseous. And the teabags weren’t real pleasant on the eyes, either. Similarly, tried a couple of Tula skincares, because probiotics seem good for my ‘gizzards’. what a waste of time & $. My thought that if s.t. is good internally, it should be good externally, and Vice-versa. Faulty reasoning award.

Your skin tone/coloring: Under my name (blue-green eyes, dark hair)

Favorite silver eyeshadow? Depending on just how silvery I want to go; either PML Sterling for a VIVID silver, although I have to take special care removing it due to one of its ingredients, or ND Glam’s one very silvery Center Lid Shade in the last row.

Favorite blue eyeshadow? PML’s Lapis Luxury and Underworld. UD’s Prank and Madness, too!

Favorite hydrating skincare product? Drunk Elephant Protini Peptide, hands down!

OMG Arena – you really did have a clean out! I got rid of quite a few lipsticks and palettes too the other day. It was sad to see some go, but really I wasn’t using them. Good on you!

😊 it feels so nice to have most of the half-empty/random containers cleared out. I am really excited to knuckle down and really get the rest of my stash organized this year!

Your skin tone/coloring: Under my name; magenta/red hair; hazel/green eyes.

Favorite silver eyeshadow? ColourPop On a Whimsy and Thingamabob; Coloured Raine Flashing Lights.

Favorite blue eyeshadow? Pat McGrath Blitz Aquamarine; Lethal Cosmetics Stargaze and Insomnia; Colored Raine Vivid Pigment in Neo Blue; Urban Decay Chaos (original), Double Dip, and Plunge; MUFE Artist Shadow in ME230 Peacock Blue; NARS Dual-Intensity Eyeshadow in Giove; ColourPop Blue Moon Palette.

Favorite hydrating skincare product? Volition Beauty Strawberry-C Serum

I don’t use blue shadow all that much but I adore Giove. I wish Nars had kept their dual intensity line and expanded it. I’d forgotten about UD’s Double Dip and Plunge; I have them in the Beached palette if I’m not mistaken and love both especially for under my lower lashes but I should use them more!

Favorite silver eyeshadow? This question made me realize I don’t own many silvers in my collection. “Right Hand Mando” is a silver with a slight green tint and is a newer love in my collection, there’s also D-552 from MUFE that I’ve used a fair amount. There’s also a silver glitter topper from the “Concrete Runway” Maybelline City Mini palette that’s fun but not very long-lasting

Favorite blue eyeshadow? “Paladin” from Devinah Cosmetics. Beautiful mid-toned periwinkle blue

Favorite hydrating skincare product? I have oily skin, so hydration has never been a concern for me, but I’ve always loved the Nature Republic Aloe Vera Gel as both a face and all-over body moisturizer for intense hydration without clogging my pores and piling on my existing oils

Your skin tone/colouring: Porcelain, with pink undertones

Favourite silver eyeshadow? I wasn’t really a fan of silver eyeshadows till I used the one out of ND’s Glam palette – it is not ultra shimmery – just a subtle wash – 328 M. I also like the ones in Naked 2 – Verve and Pistol.

Favourite blue eyeshadow? I love a good, deep blue – preferably a navy soft shimmer or satin – but these are hard to find. My current fave is PMG’s Lapis Luxury (single) and the blue shades in Guerlain’s Les Aquas and Les Gris. I also like Madness from Vice 2. Ruth, from SG and Antimatter from CP look pretty good too.

Favourite hydrating skincare product? Hmm – that’s a hard one, because I have used quite a few good ones in my time.
Budget – Neutragena’s Hydro Boost Moisturiser, CeraVe’s Hydrating Lotion with HA, Olay’s Regenerist cream.
Other: Dragon’s Blood Daily Moisturiser, Skin Chemist’s Daily Moisturiser, A’kin Daily Moisturiser, Waleeda Skin Food.

Your skin tone/coloring:light, MAC NC 20

Favorite silver eyeshadow? There’s a shadow in the MAC Girl’s Pretty Princess called Too Good to be True that’s a gorgeous silver/pewter shade. Worth the price of the palette alone!

Favorite blue eyeshadow? Secrets from JD Glow Galaxy Shadows

Favorite hydrating skincare product? I dunno. I just put on Olay Retinol serum at night. Keeps my skin soft and the texture away
