Skin tone/coloring: Neutral-yellow medium (NC42 Mac, 290 Fenty)

Favorite product this month? Two new products that I want to rave about by L’Oréal called Age Perfect Crème de Teint Glow & Comfort in 01 (a sort of natural look foundation replacement or something you could add to a foundation) & the Age Perfect Radiant Concealer in 03 (says Dark, but anyone would laugh at that when they see the color). I may have found the best concealer because it goes on thin yet stays wet for a bit; however, you can lay it on as you like. I have very dark all around eye circles and what I like about it is I can put as much or little as I need. I find one to two thin layers work great for me. The peachy color is also just right for my complexion and blends very well with either the teint or my foundations.

Most used face/cheek product this month? Still Kaylux “Most Nominated”

Most used eye product this month? Hmmm, a surprise to me, but I’ve been laying low on the eyeshadow. Recovering from palette hang-over from the 2017 end-year and holidays. Just filling my brows and putting on mascara.

Your skin tone/coloring: Light medium, yellow tones, dark brown hair and eyes.

Favorite product this month? Korres Wild Rose serum – I am crazy about this stuff but it’s my favourite every month, so I guess that’s cheating… fave makeup would be the Designer Brands Luminous Hydrating foundation.

Most used face/cheek product this month? My Pur Pro highlight palette has been getting a workout for both cheeks and eyes.

Most used eye product this month? Milani eye primer – I tried to use up UD Eden, Smashbox and assorted other eye primers, got mad at all of them for creasing (just in the inner corners!) and went back to my fave. ILU boo.

Favorite product this month? I tried ABH brow wiz for the first time, and I’m starting to get the hang of it!
Most used face/cheek product this month? I’ve rotated through two of my Tarte blushes (Paaarty and Seduce) and I’ve been enjoying the natural flush I get if I don’t build them up too much.
Most used eye product this month? I’m working on panning my ABH Master Palette by Mario, so that’s what I’ve been using the most. There are 2 shades I’ll miss, but I’m a long way from progress at this point, haha

Skin tone: Very pale with cool undertones.

Favorite product this month: Viseart Tryst Eye Shadow palette. I have really been enjoying this palette and have used it on a daily basis since I picked it up sometime in the middle of the month. The shades are nothing that we haven’t seen in a million palettes over the past couple of years and they are pretty much warm toned shades which I have plenty of but these shadows blend so smoothly and easily. People are fond of saying they practically blend themselves and I find that to be true. I also love that the palette is smaller in size so will be much easier to travel with than many of my other favorite palettes.

Most used cheek/face product: I have been using the YSL Touche Eclat Blurring Primer a lot this month and really love it. I have also been using the Hourglass Ambient Lighting Blush in Diffused Heat a lot this month.

Most used eye product this month: Milani Eye Shadow Primer and have been loving it. I did just pick up the Viseart Eye Shadow Primer about a week ago and have been using that quite a bit. It feels very silicone heavy and breaks down just like the Porefessional which means you have to knead the tube before dispensing which is a pain in the butt. Actually, really seems like the same product as the Porefessional.

Your skin tone/coloring: Medium w/ olive undertones MAC NC37, Lancôme Teint Idole Foundation N360, Fenty ProFilt’r in 260 or 290, deep brunette, blue-green eyes w/ gold flecks.

Favorite product this month? A generous sample of Laneige Sleeping Lip Mask (I may not have the name 100% correct). Love it so much, I’m buying the full-size container of it!

Most used face/cheek product this month? Lancôme Teint Idole 24H Foundation mixed with a little bit of liquid highlighter, probably. Also been using CP Aura Voir Luster Dust quite often. It goes well with many of my blush shades.

Most used eye product this month? I’ve been all over the place with various palettes and color schemes, so it’s hard to pinpoint one palette. Certain products do get used on the regular, like Milani Eyeshadow Primer, UDPP in Eden, Marc Jacobs Blaquer Highliner, Essence Midnight In Paris Gel Liner, and Maybelline Full & Soft Waterproof Mascara.

I love the Laneige Lip Mask as well!! My lips are really chapped and I when I wear the lip mask, I wake up with soft lips. But the little applicator that came with mine broke off after a few uses so I had to buy a different silicon applicator 🙁

Favorite product this month: the foundation head for my clarisonic. Love it. Favorite cosmetic product is probably the Lipstories in Desert Trip.

Most used face product: It Cosmetics Je Ne Sais Quad. It is perfect for super fast, out the door, no makeup- makeup.

Most used eye product: The skinny pink Maybelline eyeliner in brown. I really should know it’s name by now, I repurchase it regularly! Next would be my Catrice Mascara that was shocking it was so good. I’m definitely repurchasing it as well!

Favorite product this month? I finally got Charlotte Tilbury Red Carpet Red and Becca Topaz (Pressed) and I love them.

Most used face/cheek product this month? Fenty Beauty Ginger Binge/Moscow Mule, I think.

Most used eye product this month? Inglot AMC Eyeliner Gel 77.

Your skin tone/coloring: Warm end of neutral, some slight redness. MAC NC25/C2, Chanel 30, Nars Custard Concealer (I love this not under the eyes, but for concealing redness).

Favorite product this month? I have rediscovered my love for Inglot #406. It’s gorgeous over Mac Quite Natural Paint Pot.

Most used face/cheek product this month? Mufe Pro Contour #20 palette, as I’m trying to pan it! I do like the contour and blush shades. I don’t mind the highlighter but prefer powders for that. I’ve not been able to get much use out of the pale, non-shimmery highlight shade in this palette; It’s too chalky for my skintone, and at best, I can get a LITTLE use out of it by blending with the blush shade for use under-eye as a salmon type concealer. Problem there is I have better products for that which don’t require setting. I’d prefer this product if the highlighter was instead a yellow-based concealer. Otherwise it’s a nice, light, travel-friendly product.

Most used eye product this month? Mac Paint Pot in Quite Natural – mine’s getting old and in need of replacing, but still has about 40% left! So I’ve been diligently trying to use it up, by experimenting with it all month, and that’s how I found out how great it is with the Inglot shadow layered over it, on the lid. I usually go in with the paint pot on a Zoeva petit blender, cover the lid, go up into the crease and just above, then use my finger to fade it out into the lower part of the browbone area. Then I go in with the shadows. No-brainer go-to for my eye colour (blue-green) and lasts all day!

Fenty 430, MUFE HD 520, Bare minerals warm dark

Fav product this month is Fenty Pro filter foundation. Got match last weekend and its beautiful! My skin in a bottle!

Most used cheek product- Clinique cola pop blush.

Most used eye product- Does eye cream count? I’ve been looking for a moisturizing and affordable eye cream since Im now in my 30s. Ive been told that eye creams are a must at my age… Using a sample of belif moistrurizing eye cream. Its definately not drying out my under area like other eye creams so I guess thats a good thing. Not wowed by it yet.

Your skin tone/coloring: fair to light yellow or gold

Favorite product this month? IT CC Cream in Fair. It could stand to be a tad more yellow, but the texture and finish are really nice, and it has a 50 spf physical block. Love that! This isn’t new to me, but I’ve been reminded recently how much I like it.

Most used face/cheek product this month? Tough one. It’s cheating to name foundation or powder products, and I’ve been very deliberately using completely different cheek products every day for the sake of rotation. Hmmm … I’d have to say Fenty’s Chili Mango as a base blush layer.

Most used eye product this month? ColourPop’s Just A Sip. I’m on a panning mission, and this is the first one I pulled out of the drawer for the purpose of using until gone. It’s one of my first CP shadows so it’s older, and I’m about to declare it done even though I haven’t cleaned it out (though there *is* major pan!) because after five years it’s stiff enough to justify letting go.

Your skin tone/coloring: Fair, neutral-to-olive/warm undertones (MAC NC10-15, MUFE Y215)
Favorite product this month? Surprisingly, it’s something I got in my first Allure box. It’s the Cle Essence Moonlighter Cushion in Glinting Buff. It’s definitely not a product I’d purchase for myself, especially not this shade, but I love the effect on my skin! Swatched it looks a bit glittery but on my cheeks it’s a gorgeous lit-from-within glow. I like it because the base is pretty sheer, so it doesn’t really add much color, just a lot of shine!
Most used face/cheek product this month? Laura Mercier Translucent Setting Powder. I must be the only person on Earth who doesn’t love this. It’s not bad, it’s just not amazing either and it looks drying and cake-y on my skin (I’m a normal skin type) so I’m trying to finish it up so I can put my RCMA No Color Powder into the jar! I barely have any left so I’m going to try and finish it this week.
Most used eye product this month? MAC Pro Longwear Concealer under my eyes. It’s a great concealer, but I hate having to go through the extra steps of warming it on my hand, thinning it out with a brush, painting it on, then blending it out. I have other concealers I like just as much that come with a wand, so I’m trying to use this one up as well. I have about 1/5 of the bottle left and I think I may start mixing it in with liquid highlighters to make a base product instead of just using it as a concealer.

Your skin tone/coloring: light with neutral to pink undertone (Sephora Color ID: 1R05)

Favorite product this month? Nabla single eyeshadows. They’re so creamy and the metallic/shimmery shades are so beautiful. My most favorites are Alchemy and Luna, but many people recommended Water Dream so I just ordered that as well.

Most used face/cheek product this month? I’ve been mixing the Marc Jacobs Dew Drops into my foundation so give a more subtle glow. I absolutely love it 🙂

Most used eye product this month? ABH Soft Glam palette. The shades are gorgeous and the formula is exactly like the formula of Modern Renaissance.
