Your skin tone/coloring: Light-medium with warm yellow undertone

Favorite product this month? I only have used it for a few days, but BECCA Velvet Blurring Primer was the one that impressed me the most this month and it’s a favorite. But if I would pick an `all month` favorite, it’s more the Hourglass Arch Brow Sculpting Pencil.

Most used eye product this month? My on-going mascara (Hourglass Caution Mascara) and brow gel (MILK KUSH Fiber Brow Gel), every make-up day includes them. As an most used eyeshadow, I seemed to reach frequently to MAC Haux this month.

Your skin tone/coloring: Light – Light/Medium, slightly warm yellow undertones

Favorite product this month? This is hard… I love them all equally 🙂 I’d have to say the Ardell Baby Wispies. I’ve finally gotten the hang of putting lashes on, so I’m a little obsessed. These are perfect for my small, slightly hooded eyes.

Most used face/cheek product this month? The powder contour from the Kevyn Aucoin contour/highlight mini palette. I don’t really like the highlight but the contour is perfection. I love it.

Most used eye product this month? My false lashes! I’m tempted to try the Lilly Lashes. They are pricey but look sooo pretty.

I found Lilly lashes too big for my small eyes and I’ve tried several styles. Big waste of money. I’m talking about the length of the lash not the band.

I love Velout effortless collection and for drama velour serindipity.

Your skin tone/coloring: Light medium, yellow undertones. Dark brown hair & eyes.

Favorite product this month? Natio Rosewater moisturisers – the day gel cream is better than the Clinique 72Hr Moisture Surge I got in December, plus it’s cheaper, smells delicious and comes in a bigger tube!

Most used face/cheek product this month? Good Molecules Super Peptide serum.

Most used eye product this month? I rediscovered Lioele Blooming Lash mascara, so I’ve been using that up.

Your skin tone/coloring: Light neutral, green eyes, salt & pepper hair

Favorite product this month? MAC Omega eyeshadow. It’s an oldie in my collection, but I’ve been loving it lately. Also loving the Lancome Definicils Mascara mini that I’ve been using for a couple of weeks.

Most used face/cheek product this month? Estée Lauder Double Wear Makeup, NARS Orgasm Blush, RCMA No Color Powder (I use all three of these just about every day).

Most used eye product this month? It’s a 3-way tie: MAC Omega eyeshadow, Lancome Definicils Mascara (this mini freebie is lasting a very long time!), and ABH Brow Wiz (I had fallen out of love with this pencil last year and started using Dior Brow Styler instead, but to save money I bought the ABH pencil and I’m very happy with it).

Your skin tone/colouring: Porcelain, with pink undertones

Favourite product this month? Either my EA lipstick in Ginger or the Colour Pop lux lippie in Gallop.

Most used face/cheek product this month? Apart from sunscreen, L’Oreal’s True Match foundation in Porcelain Rose and my newly started EA blush in Sweet Peach – which is actually quite pigmented and needs a light touch.
Most used eye product this month? Definitely my Dior Bonne Etoile quint – I find I reach for it at least two to three times per week as the mint and teal blue shades work extremely well with my summer clothes.

Favorite product this month? Tatcha Indigo Cream (I’m almost out and I got it on sale and I’m so sad because it’s too $$$ to repurchase!)

Most used face/cheek product this month? NARS Tinted Moisturizer

Most used eye product this month? Tom Ford Cream Color for Eyes in Spice (I found it at my closest CCO for $12 !!!!!)

Erica Avatar

At one outlet mall in my state, there’s a CCO that sells discounted Estee Lauder ie EL, Smashbox, Clinique, MAC, Aveda, Bumble & Bumble, Bobbi Brown, Tom Ford etc. A Bare Beauty outlet which sells discounted NARS, Bare Minerals, Buxom, Laura Mercier, Burberry etc. And a Luxury Brand outlet which sells discounted high end Loreal brands ie Lancome, Urban Decay, YSL, Kiehls etc. It’s heaven but also a 2 hr plus drive. I believe though it’s Simon outlet malls that have the CCO. Pretty neat if you live in the US. Not sure if they have anytning like it anywhere else. Things are marked down 30% It’s a lot of discontinued, LE and overstock. And it’s never a full range. Depends on what they have at the time. There also sales on top of the reduced price. There is a CCO near me (not the one with the three outlets). I bought a Smashbox Cover Shot palette, 2 MAC eyeshadow pots and a MAC lipgloss for $19. Everything was marked down 70% from the reduced price. Pretty sweet to me:)

Skin tone: Very fair with neutral undertones, grey hair and deep brown eyes.

Favorite product this month: For Christmas my daughter bought me some products from Bath and Body Works. It is a line called Love and the scent is a mixture of two of my favorite scents, Rose and Vanilla. I have really been loving the hand cream and the pillow spray. I will probably pick up the cologne at some point.

Most used face/cheek product: I am back to using my Chosungah foundation on a daily basis so that is definitely my most used face product and I have been using a Milk Makeup Cheek and Lip product in the shade Rally which is a dusty mauve.

Most used eye product this month: NYX Waterproof Primer and Thrive mascara.

Medium with yellow undertones

New Colourpop Supershock eyeshadow set Polite AF (new to me – I live in the UK)

Panning my NARS Killing Me Softly palette and Smashbox Full Exposure palette so those combined with the above mentioned Colourpop eyeshadows are most used. Finished Albatross from the NARS palette.

Skintone: Light-medium neutral (I’ve got my winter skin going now)

Favorite product: La Mer Luminous Lifting Cushion Foundation. I have the Soft Fluid foundation, but I’m so glad I gave this one a try as I love the formula, the coverage and the radiance.

Most used face product: Hourglass Ambient Lighting Edit Unlocked Palette.

Most used eye product: Farmacy Honey Savior. I have a non-stop watering eye (blocked tear duct, they say), so I have not been able to wear eye makeup for the past month. I am missing eye make up so much that today I wanted to put makeup on my one good eye, lol.
