Most used lipstick of all time: That’s hard, lately it’s been a toss up between Candy K by Kylie and NARS Cruella.

Most used lipstick: Not a certain shade, but I think MAC lipsticks are always my standby.
Most used foundation: My IT Cosmetics CC cream

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

Most used blush of all time? Chanel Tempting Beige (DC, but I used it for many years so it’s the right answer); now, Laura Geller baked blush in Pink Grapefruit

Most used lipstick of all time? Tough one… I’ll say Urban Decay Lovelight (still using up stash of Revolution version)

Most used foundation of all time? Smashbox Camera Ready BB water in Fair Light

Medium warm (MAC NC30, Armani 5.75, Tarte Medium Sand)

Most used blush of all time: Time is relative, lol. Current most used are NARS Impudique, Tom Ford Wicked, and the NARS Unfiltered I and II palettes.

Most used lipsticks: I seriously wear different lipsticks or different combos of lipsticks daily. I have over 100 in regular rotation and cannot think of a single one that I use more than others.

Most used foundations: I’ve started mixing my foundations just like I do my lipsticks. In the regular mix are MAC Studio Fix, NARS Luminous Weightess, Too Faced Born This Way, Armani’s Luminous Silk, Guerlain’s BB cream, Estée Lauder Doublewear, and LACOME’s cushion foundation

Your skin tone/coloring: Porcelain

Most used blush of all time? Benefit Rockateur and Blackbird Cosmetics Blueberry Pookie.

Most used foundation of all time? Mary Kay CC Cream in Very Light.

Your skin tone/coloring: Medium Olive
Most used blush of all time? Mac Coppertone
Most used lipstick of all time? Mac Half ‘n half
Most used foundation of all time? Clinique Stay-Matte

Skin tone: in between NC20 and NC25! super prominent warm/yellow undertones, dark warm brown hair, cinnamon brown eyes.

All time most used blush: Ill have to say Benefits Bela Bamba, or NARS Deep Throat. Iv hit pan on both! But I prefer Bela bamba!

All time most used lipstick: my all time, most used, if I could only have one lipstick, is LUSH’s Santa Baby lip tint! It’s a opaque, matte, super warm, orange red lipstick! I’m actually wearing it in my photo!

All time most used foundation: I had to think hard! I guess I’ll have to say L’oral pro matte, as I’m halfway through my third tube of it. I like it in the winter the best.

Shannon, which shade do you use in the foundation? I am more pale than you based on your MAC colors, but the L’Oréal I purchased is too pink for me. Thanks ?

Your skin tone/coloring: very fair, warm-to-olive undertones, green-brown eyes, auburn hair

Most used blush of all time? Either Nars Madly or Dior Healthy Glow Awakening blush in Petal!

Most used lipstick of all time? MAC Relentlessly Red. It’s my power-lipstick. I wear it constantly in spring and summer and I’ve gone through a half tube (impressive for a Retro Matte that never needs reapplication)

Most used foundation of all time? It used to be MAC Studio Fix Fluid but I had to stop using it because NC15 was oxidizing too dark. Now it’s MUFE Ultra HD liquid but I might pick up SFF because they have an NC10 shade now!

Your skin tone/coloring: Fairest neutral. Currently using Kat Von D Lock-It Foundation in L41 and Marc Jacobs Re(Marc)able Foundation in 10 Ivory Light. Love both. ?

Most used blush of all time? It’s a toss-up between MAC Moon River Mineralize Blush and MAC Blonde Mineralize Skinfinish. Possibly Moon River wins it since I finished it completely but I refuse to open my backup due to it being LE!

Most used lipstick of all time? Chanel Rouge Allure in Darling. Another LE item. It’ll be a sad day when it’s finally finished. ?

Most used foundation of all time? Bobbi Brown Skin Foundation in 00 Alabaster. The first and only foundation I’ve ever repurchased I think. I still love it despite not using it so much recently.

Your skin tone/coloring: NC15/20 – light with neutral undertones
Most used blush of all time? Lately, Tarte Exposed
Most used lipstick of all time? MAC Faux
Most used foundation of all time? MAC Studio Fix, Tarte Amazonian Clay, Laura Mercier Silk Creme… for drugstore, Revlon Colorstay for oily/combo skin. All of these I’ve repurchased 3+ times.

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

I’m old, so my most used of all time are not my currently most used. lol I still use all these things from time to time, though, especially the foundation.

Most used blush of all time? BareMinerals Face Color in Rose Radiance (on my pale skin, it’s a blush).

Most used lipstick of all time? Max Factor Creme Rouge Lipstick in 537 (An amazing warm red cream.)

Most used foundation of all time? BareMinerals Orginal Foundation SPF 15 in Fair.

Most used blush of all time: Mac Fleur Power or Mac Peaches
Most used lipstick of all time: Too Faced Sugar Daddy

Most used lipstick of all time? touch from mac and limbo from colourpop
Most used foundation of all time? l’oréal true match and face and body from mac

Your skin tone/coloring: NC15 w/some redness

Most used blush of all time? Tarte Exposed (best neutral I’ve found so far, though I want to try out the MJ one everyone is talking about)

Most used lipstick of all time? MAC Brave or MAC Plumful (first ones I bought back in the day)

Most used foundation of all time? Was Bourjois Healthy Mix Serum Foundation but could now be tied with NARS Sheer Glow

Exposed is a really good matte blush! And I think the Marc Jacobs one is the Air Blush Soft Glow Duo in the shade Flesh & Fantasy. It’s the most “nude” one so it’s similar to Exposed in that respect I think, but I think the finish is different.

I bought flesh and fantasy a few weeks ago! ☺ I haven’t tried it yet. Maybe I will try it next and let you know how it goes. And I will definitely have to pick up the Tarte! Thank you ?

Your skin tone/coloring: Fair, cool-toned
Most used blush of all time? This will be so boring but….Tarte Natural Beauty (though lately it’s been MAC LE Sweet Sentiment because I keep Natural Beauty in my purse makeup bag)
Most used lipstick of all time? MAC Craving
Most used foundation of all time? tie between IT CC cream and Guerlain Lingerie de Peau (I use IT a bit more because of the SPF 50)

Told’ya….boring (but I guess everyone’s replies will seem boring to them but interesting to everyone else!)

Clearly a woman of taste and discernment! I’ve loved Craving for years and will love Craving for years to come. I often travel with just one lipstick and it’s Craving (perfect on my colouring, goes with just about everything, wears really well, feels really good and isn’t LE so I don’t have to worry if I leave this in a hotel room or lose it somehow).

Your skin tone/coloring: Fair/Light with neutral undertones.
Most used blush of all time? Hmmmm, if it’s of all time, then probably my Maybelline Dream Mousse Blush that I’ve had for a very long time.

Most used foundation of all time? Still going strong with the IT Cosmetics CC Cream – it’s the only thing I’ve found that doesn’t slide off my face.

Skin tone: porcelain with pink undertones
Most Used Blush: It would have to be Natio’s Sunkissed Mosaic blush – I am onto my 3rd compact now and it’s beautiful peachy tones suits my complexion perfectly. It is also relatively inexpensive, lasts all day and is often on sale.
Most Used Lipstick: For the last couple of years it has been Milani’s Colour Statement lipstick in Cinnamon Spice.
Most Used Foundation: Previously it has been Rimmel’s Match Perfection in light porcelain (and I always have a backup) but now I am totally loving Clarins Super Restorative Foundation in Linen – sadly discontinued, but I hope (fingers crossed) the brand will restore the shade. It is long wearing, very pale and beautiful to use.

Your skin tone/coloring: fair/light with olive undertones.

Most used blush of all time? NARS Orgasm.

Most used lipstick of all time? Probably Urban Decay Rapture or Nyx SMLC in Rome.

Most used blush of all time? Most used of all time is NARS Orgasm (only blush I’ve ever hit pan on…twice). I do, however, use Clinique Heather Pop for days I’m looking for cooler-toned blush.

Most used lipstick of all time? I have a huge collection of lipsticks, and yet 80% of the time I use Benetint topped with Bite agave lip mask or I use the Smashed agave lip mask from Bite. I’m on my fourth bottle of Benetint and second tubes each of the regular and smashed lip masks. Lipstick proper, I probably use the Buxom gel lipstick in Rebel Rose most. I’ve only just gotten into lipsticks in the last couple years and was pretty much a tinted lip balm girl.

Most used foundation of all time? I’m pretty true to IT Cosmetics CC cream these days and don’t see that changing. For quite a few years it was the Clinique CC cream though and before that I used Bare Minerals for years and years going back to when you could only get it mail order or through QVC/Home Shopping.

Tone? S.t., like today, it’s hell-I-don’t know. Light to medium coolish. Used the lightest KGD sample today…012 is it? And it looked fine. But 002 and the darkest of the cool bunch in the light to medium sample set seem to match, too. That KGD water formula is skin twin for me for sure. Bet even the warm samples look natural……As to the questions, being old, I had less stash back in the day, so those were used more. Hence answers are not current product.
Blush:EL Rose Marble, a rosy plum with slight shimmer.
Lipstick: Tres Tres Dior. The first two were cooler browned red, then the next one was bright and pinkish red, with no brown. Believe I thought I was getting a back up, but they had d/c’d it and reused the name. Even modern ladies have been fooled by that one…totally different color. Suppose Tres Tres has been replaced by a ton of dark Audacious and VLGs. Didn’t actually realize that general color has grabbed me since the late 70s. OMBFG. Plus ca change, plus ca reste meme chose!
Foundation: that Prescriptives one, before lauder divested them. They had the best matching technology of that decade. See, nothing new. Too much to rotate, now.

– Most used foundation of all time? Again, a Clinique one. More recently, I used Guerlain Lingerie de Peau Beige Pale and Rose Clair for a couple of years, and now Hourglass Ultra HD 115/R230.

Most used blush of all time? Chanel Rose Bronze.
Most used lipstick of all time? Chanel Mademoiselle in summer. Dior Red 999 in winter.
Most used foundation of all time? Armani Luminous Silk … the lightest shade is still a little too dark for my pale skin, so I lighten it with two drops of Cle de peau Luminizing Enhancer Base.

Your skin tone/coloring: very fair, warm-to-olive undertones currently but turn medium in summer, hazel eyes, silver-chocolate-gray melt

Most used blush of all time? I haven’t found one I love since Urban Decay stop selling their cream blush in Quickie. Makeup Geek Smitten when tan. Makeup Geek Head Over Heals or Tarte Park Ave Princess when pale.

Most used lipstick of all time? Urban Decay Revolution formulas. I just stocked up on them when they went on Sale last week.

Most used lipstick of all time? MAC Fleshpot. It’s a great matte nude and works well mixed with other colors or over a lip-liner for the perfect nude lip. It doesn’t lean too yellow or pink on me, so I have been repurchasing it since it was released in 2008 for the Heatherette Collection!
Most used foundation of all time? That’s tough. I’m always switching my foundations. I seem to always go back to MAC Matchmaster or if I’m going out at night I’ll use Estee Lauder Double Wear.
