What lipstick/gloss are you wearing right now? I was wearing Cosmo lipstick by MAC but I got annoyed at all my makeup and took it off… haha. So now, if anything’s left, it’s MAC lip conditioner with lavender (in the pot, no color).
What blush do you always reach for? Now, Maybelline Light Nude (from the new Fit collection), or… NARS deep throat, or Too Faced rose.
What mascara disappointed you? Maybelline falsies… used it twice and don’t reach for it anymore, I just own better.

Gloss I am wearing- Boy Bait, which I just found out today is being discontinued so I had to order 2 extras…its my HG!
Blush-I am torn between NARS Orgasm, and Warm Soul mineralize blush
Mascara that disapointed me- Falsies by Maybelline…just didnt cut it!

What lipstick/gloss are you wearing right now?
revlon soft nude

What blush do you always reach for?
i love my nars blushes but somehow when im confused and dont know which blush to wear i always go back to milani’s mai tai blush, its pigmented, its easy to blend, its matte, its a coral-rose, goes with everything, holy grail!

What mascara disappointed you?
i love the brush of the josie maran volume mascara, but not the formula, it clumps and also i find my lashes falling out a lot when i use that mascara.

What lipstick/gloss are you wearing right now? No lipgloss, just Jack Black lip balm. SOOOO worth the $7.50

What blush do you always reach for? lately, Benefit Bella Bamba. That will probably change next week. 🙂

What mascara disappointed you? Tarte’s Light, Camera, Lash. $20 worth of clumps. Yuck.

1) Jubilee by Mac, with a Bobbi Brown clear lipgloss on top. It’s to stop me from gnawing at my lips 🙁
2)Pale pink my Bobbi Brown. I usually don’t even need to swipe my brush in it, it’s so pigmented! (I just lightly touch the surface). It gives a great doll-like look.
3)Bourjois Volume Glamour: it clumps like crazy!

Wednesday questions are awesome 😀

Chanel Rouge Coco Peregrina – suck a beautiful soft shade, makes me feel like it’s spring already!
Nars Sex Appeal – always wearable and flattering
Benefit BadGal Lash – it was smudging hell, not to mention it lasted like ten minutes on my lashes. What a waste of money 🙁

1. Softlips raspberry lip balm
2. Nars, Penny Lane cream blush
3. Loreal million lashes…I think I may be the only one disapointed by this one, I really wanted to like this on but it made my lashes clumpy yet spider-y (if that makes any sense) and I really had to work with it to get it just right.

– Mac Plumful lipstick – my fav! Makes me feel like Snow White, in the midst of all this horrid, wondrous cold.
– Mac Dame blush…
– Anddd… L’Oreal Volume Million Lashes was initially a dissapointment – I kept applying and then taking it off, it looked that horrible. Which is really quite extraordinary, hardly any mascara is unworkable with a bit of effort, imo. A week or to of sporadic attempts, and it dried out just the tiniest amount, and now I love it. Tons of volume, good separation and colour, lift… yeah, good. Finally 😀

I had to laugh about your comments on the Loreal mascara. I felt the exact same way. Didn’t work after several tries. After it dried out a bit, it works beautifully! I didn’t even make the connection until I read your comments.

I’m wearing Kiehl’s mango-scented lipbalm, no lipstick. I don’t wear more than mascara and brow pencil (and foundation, if my skin is looking rough) to school.

As of now, I’m still using the really pink (forgot the name…) Emmanuel Ungaro blush from the MAC Collection; I may have a heart attack when I run out.

Finally, I am really, really disappointed with the Maybelline Volum Express in the coral tube. The Falsies is under the same Volum Express line, but the coral tube did not give either volume or length and it flaked worse than an ex-boyfriend. Really, really bad. Just stick to the Falsies collection.

Lipstick- the new Clinique Chubby Stick in A Whole Lotta Honey
Blush- MAC’s Fleur Power, its the perfect coral shade not too orange not too pink, brightens you up for winter and gives such a nice glow for summer.
Mascara disappointment- MAC Zoom, there is sooooo much excess left on the brush and left my lashes clumpy.

I’m wearing Mac lipstick in Plink and lipgloss in Partial to Pink.

I always reach for Nars Amour blush.

I was disappointed with Rimmel’s Volume Flash Mascara in Waterproof. The non waterproof one worked so well for me.

What mascara disappointed you?

Right now I’m just wearing some rosebud salve. Lazy day today!

I don’t often wear blush, but Benefit’s Girl Meets Pearl is my favourite cheek product.

I tried really hard to like covergirl lashblast, but it was a little hard to work with and the waterproof formula was a nightmare to remove!

I have no idea why my comment published without me finishing. Oh, well.

LORAC liquid lipstick in Elite, my current fave MLBB shade
lately I reach for Cover Girl in Mink, it gives me a very subtle glow with a touch of color
Chanel inimitable – for the price, I really didn’t find it to be much better than drugstore mascara, though I liked the wand/bristles

Maybelline Falsies. It was so wet and heavy, it made my lashes droop and stick together.

* What blush do you always reach for?
MAC – Dame, I think

* What mascara disappointed you?
The only one I just can’t use, from the many I own (my favorite makeup item!), is Lancôme’s Hypnôse. I hate hate hate how it always makes the lashes stick to each other and also always looks like I pushed the brush into the lashes, making them look gross, no matter how I apply it.

* What lipstick/gloss are you wearing right now? – None, i’m sick with the flu 🙁
* What blush do you always reach for? – I’ve put together pink balls from different Meteorites, love them.

Right now Guerlain Kiss Kiss Strass in Corail Dentelle
I usually use Smashbox Blush Rush in Chiffon (but not right now)
I haven’t really used many mascaras besides Maybelline Great lash and a discontinued L’Oreal lengthening mascara (can’t remember the name). But any thickening mascara (L’Oreal/CG) has always disappointed me. I haven’t changed mascaras in about a decade though.

What lipstick/gloss are you wearing? – It’s pretty chilly and very snowy here, so I have been relying on my Fresh Sugar Rose lip treatment to keep my lips moisturized.

What blush do I always reach for – well I have waaaay too many, but lately its been E.L.F. Candid Coral

What mascara disappointed me – TOO MANY! lol but recently Giorgio Armani Eyes To Kill Excess mascara was nothing too special :/

What lipstick/gloss are you wearing right now? Korres Gloss #33 Nude
What blush do you always reach for? MAC Intant Chic- constantly- with Harmony as bronzer
What mascara disappointed you? I’ve been really lucky with my choices- L’oreal voluminous or Maybelline Falsies- I go between these two and they’re great! (and cheap)

Mac style blush with freckletone lipstick, but my everyday is mac springsheen blush with sandy b, maybelline falsies mascara, and i don’t always use lipgloss, sometimes mac lusterglass in instant gold. I sometimes reach for mac peachykeen blush with innocence beware lipstick.

I just got my new HG “My lips but better” combo:
Chantecaille Lip Chic in Dahlia and Brilliant Gloss in Mirth
Blush – Nars Mounia, It’s so pigmented that on my NC20 skin a little bit gives me that perfect flushed look.
Mascara – Maybelline Lash Stiletto

I’m wearing… Chanel Rouge Coco #5 (Madmoiselle)
I’ve reached for… Somethig like the Guerlain Serie Noir Blush! Sooo chic and beautiful and pigmented and… got to go home with me!!
The mascara that disappointed me was Helena Rubistein Lash Queen Feline Extravaganzza… could sound crazy, but it’s true. I’ve prove it during a month and… no. I prefer MUFE Smoky Lashes!!

What lipstick/gloss are you wearing right now? MAC Innocence Beware lipstick
What blush do you always reach for? – Right now, it’s Benefit PosieTint because I’m trying to use it up and move it out! Lovely color but just want to make a dent in my overall blush collection.
What mascara disappointed you? Benefit Bad Gal Lash. To me the formula seems to dry and it is hard to tell if it is going on.

1-MAC’s Freckletone Lipstick with 2N lipglass (I’m NC43 and it looks LOVELY on my skin tone!!!)
2-MAC’s Warm Soul or PeachyKeen (depending on my mood)

What blush do you always reach for? Lately I’m going for MAC Stereo Rose. Lovely!
What mascara disappointed you? Diorshow Extase. It’s quite average imo… I’m sticking to my Iconic one.

I’m wearing the Korres lipbalm in Guava right now and it smells delicious.
The blush I reach for the most would probably Posey from MAC (creme blush) and for powder blushes it would be Sincere.
I wasn’t really disappointed by the European dupe for Covergirl’s lash blast (Max Factor’s False Lash Effect), but I also wasn’t blown away by it.

What lipstick/gloss are you wearing right now? just carmex
What blush do you always reach for? MAC mineralize blush in Pet Me

MAC – Blankety
Nars Orgasm or Benefit Coralista
As for mascara, ugh they are all a little disappointing, aren’t they? The worst one recently was definitely L’Oreal’s Telescopic Explosion.

Lipstick: Rimmel London Moisture Renew Lipstick in Rose Blush

Go-to blush: Sephora Blush Me! in Corail Frisson 5

Mascara that disappointed: Lancome Virtuose! Beautiful mascara, but a week later, it had totally dried out. And I always make sure to close my mascaras tightly.

1) She-Zam Dazzleglass and Cool & Aloof Lipgelee
2) Clarins cream blush in Lychee and a bit of Clarins cream blush in Raspberry
3) Chanel mascara

Currently on my lips is Revlon colorburst lipstick in Blush. I always reach for Maybelline dream smooth mousse blush in soft plum, but only because I am trying to use it up. The glitter in there bothers me. I usually go over it with a cheapie blush, like ELF Tickled pink. And mascara… I can never find one that doesn’t make me panda eyed =(

mascara: I was initially disappointed with Maybelline Falsies because I’m a huge fan of their Colossal Volume one… I hated the spoon brush, but then i got used to it and bought a second tube cuz the formula’s great.

1. At home in PJs during a snowstorm…. no lipstick or makeup at all.

What mascara disappointed you? Based on the hype, I had high hopes for L’Oreal Voluminous and L’Oreal Volume Million Lashes and both were terrible on me. The first is a clumpy mess. The second seemed to eat up my lashes and make them incredibly sparse.

What lipstick/gloss are you wearing right now? I’m wearing MAC Explicit lipglass.

What blush do you always reach for?
Pinch Me – MAC. Beautiful and subtle.

What mascara disappointed you?
Smoky Lash – MUFE. Got it a couple days ago and tried it out. First coat wouldn’t hold my curl, second coat made my lashes so stiff it made my waterline itch every time I blinked as they moved and then it flaked on me!

I have been recently obsessed with my Rouge Artist Intense MUFE lipstick in 45, or my OCC lip tar in Hush! My go-to blush is Nyx Silky Rose, and I was ridiculously disappointed by my DiorShow mascara, the scent is overwhelming and always made my eyes water when applying.

Right now I am wearing Plumful + Win Win by Mac.

For Blush Nars Orgasm, I really love the color but it fades away so quick for me…Am I the only one?

And for the mascara, L’oreal Telescopic really hate that mascara!

this is a great list of questions!!
im not wearing any lip products, im sitting at home doing my online university courses.
the blush i always reach for is from my mac pallette and its “frankly scarlet” its the most insane red but you literally tap it with your brush and use basically nothing and its the most natural flush im obsessed with it and it will last me decades.
basically all of the mac mascaras im dissapointed in, for the cost, drug store mascaras out perform them by miles. i love covergirl lash blast and ive tried several department store mascaras!

What blush do you always reach for? MAC The Perfect Cheek (LE but I bought tons of backups) or NARS Sex Appeal.

What blush do you always reach for?
Toss-Up between: MAC Melba, Peaches, or Instant Chic

What mascara disappointed you?
Diorshow 360…the brush was awkward to use and too bulky for my teeny lashes. Plus I feel like I get the same effect from Loreal Telescopic and Maybelline Lash Stiletto at a mere fraction of the cost

Mac Mimmy Lipglass, trying to use it up!
NARS Orgasm blush
and loreal telescopic mascara was so horrible! Made my eyelashes look so thin and ugly

Lipgloss right now is L’Oreal Sheer Juicy Lipgloss in Golden Splash; GT blush is an unnamed generic rose/sand gorgeous color included in a Shany e/s palette I picked up last year; biggest disappointment purchase has been MAC Opulash mascara! It just couldn’t do anything for my pathetically sparse lashes- even drug store does a more impressive job than Opulash.

What lipstick/gloss are you wearing right now? none

* What lipstick/gloss are you wearing right now? I’m wearing Avon Smooth Minerals lip gloss in Natural Glow.

* What blush do you always reach for? I often grab Sweet Cinnamon blush by Maybelline.

* What mascara disappointed you? Yves Rocher Luminelle separating mascara was a big disappointment. It does absolutely NOTHING to my lashes. It’s like sweeping water onto them.

What lipstick/gloss are you wearing right now? – It was MAC’s Aristo-Cat from the Fabulous Felines collection, but it’s pretty much worn off now.

What blush do you always reach for? – Probably MAC’s Dainty mineralized blush, purely because it’s in its pot at the top of my train case and I can rarely be bothered to get my blush palettes out when I’m in a rush in the morning.

What mascara disappointed you? Urban Decay Big Fatty – it was a bit dry and clumpy.

Lips: Mac So Vain kissable lip color

Lips- Benefit’s Benetint with Carmex on top

Blush- I like to use MAC Mineralize Skinfinish in Petticoat as blush

Mascara- I was disappointed by Maybelline One by One because I accidentally bought it in brown-black instead of black! yikes.

1)Milani 3D lip gloss in fashion diva…it’s my new favorite.

1. Korres- 18 Peach
2. Mac Beauty Powder- Oh So Fair
3. Mabilline Falsies- I accidentally bought waterproof and i was tearing out my eyelashes trying to get it off.

What lipstick/gloss are you wearing right now?
Wearing no lipstick now but the last lipstick I’ve worn was PLEASE ME by MAC. I love it! I have to apply my Mac Lip Conditioner first or it gets to dry my lips a bit too much as it is extremely matte and pigmented.

What blush do you always reach for?
My favorite so-called everyday blush is number 103 by KIKO. I like it because it’s an adorable pinkish peach color with a hint of shimmer. Lately I’ve been using two multicolor blushes by Essence as well – the first one is called “Fashionista” (pink and light brown), the other one is “How Cute Is That?” (Peach and medium brown).

What mascara disappointed you?
Rimmel Glam Eyes – super cute packaging and good quality but I hated the applicator. It took me ages to apply it and never looked as good as I expected it to be.

gloss: Dior Ultra Gloss Apricot Cloche
blush: Flirt! Heartthrob is pretty much my go-to, but Chanel Espiegle (sp?) is a close second.
mascara: Diorshow Extase. I gave it more than enough chances and it clumped every single time.

What lipstick/gloss are you wearing right now?- revlon colorburst lipstick in peach with UD lip junkie lip gloss in runaway.

What blush do you always reach for?- Covergirl cheeker’s blush in rose silk.

Covergirl Lash Blast, I guess I’m just a Maybelline girl. However, I want to try the new fusion one.

-MAC’s Baby Sparks
-The Balm’s Cabana Boy
-Loreal’s Million Lashes did nothing in the way of volumizing for me, it separated and that’s about all

What lipstick/gloss are you wearing right now? Just jack black lip balm! I’ve taken off my ‘face’ for the day. 😉
What blush do you always reach for? NARS dolce vita. Which is funny because I used it once and chucked it to the back of the bin for two years because I thought it was way too dark for my fair skin tone. With a light hand it is beautiful though!
What mascara disappointed you? Lancome definicils! So clumpy for a supposedly ‘defining’ mascara!

What lipstick/gloss are you wearing right now? MAC “Hue” w/ MAC “viva glam gaga” lipglass overtop

wearing NARS Masai

always reach for MAC Breath of Plum (fall/winter) and NARS Gina (Summer)

Since I tried Maybelline Full’n’Soft, all other mascaras disappoint me!

Lipstick/lipgloss – MAC Freckletone with MAC Underage lipglass over it

Blush – MAC Cosmetics Well Dressed

Mascara – L’Oreal Voluminous. Everyone raves over it, but it really clumps on me and I even got an eye infection one time because of it.

What blush do you always reach for?
I always reach for Peaches by Mac, or Dior in 940. I also love Reflex by Chanel.

What mascara disappointed you?
Many! Estee Lauder Sumteous mascara, Benefit Bad Gal. Dior Show. Although I love Helena Rubenstein Lash Queen Feline Blacks Mascara – it dries out in matter of a few weeks, which was a big disappointment.

lipstick/gloss: EOS mint lipbalm!
Blush I reach for: lately it’s Stila convertible colour in Peony
Disappointing mascara: Lashblast purple tube. I love the orange tube, but I find the purple is a lesser product and doesn’t deliver near as well.

What lipstick/gloss are you wearing right now?
Nothing! Today was a no make up day!
What blush do you always reach for?
Bourjois Rose Frisson, never leaves me unhappy!
What mascara disappointed you?
Maybe Rimmel Sexy Curves. I don’t expect much from lower end mascara and have only tried a few mascaras (once I find a few I am happy with, I don’t like to change too much unless there are amazing reviews!)but this did not live up to the curling part, though not a dreadful mascara. Good for light day I’d say…

What lipstick/gloss are you wearing right now? MUFE rouge artist intense #12 with MUFE Lab Shine Star #22
What blush do you always reach for? MAC Dainty
What mascara disappointed you? Estée Lauder ‘Sumptuous Extreme’ Lash Multiplying Volume Mascara
Man that one sucked. I got it in Violet and I saw no color on my eyelashes and it even seemed to weight them down. I’ve also had problems with Benefit BadGal Lash. It would constantly flake in my eye.

* What blush do you always reach for?
Torn between two – Mac Springsheen and Benefit Coralista

* What mascara disappointed you?
L’Oreal Telescopic – dry, flaky mess

1) A bit of EOS lip balm, I’m sick so I need to make sure my lips don’t get totally dried out. Lately I have been loving MAC Hue, just because it is a basic nude/pink and looks so effortless.
2) MAC Plum Foolery, though lately I have been loving one from ELF in Blushing Rose.
3) Revlon Grow Luscious, too thin, felt as though even if I touched anywhere near my eye it would all come off in one swoop, and made my eyes extremely itchy!

Lipgloss: Revlon Super Lustrous Lipgloss in pearl plum 😀
Blush: Benefit Benetint. It’s idiot proof.
Mascara: Everything until I started using a metal lash comb.

Pixi Natural Cheek Gel in 01 Natural

Mascara Letdown- DIORSHOW!!!!! It was the first high end masara I tried, I found it flaky, it dried out SO QUICKLY, the scent is horrible, and overall it was the biggest mascara letdown/overhyped product I’ve ever tried!

Lipgloss: Nars Turkish Delight

Blush: Rock & Republic X-Rated, Tarte Glam, or Nars Super Orgasm

Mascara I’m not impressed with: Maybelline Great Lash Waterproof – everyone’s all about it, but for me it seems like it takes alot to deposit a decent amount and even then it doesn’t deposit what I’d like it to.

What blush do you always reach for? If I can’t think of what I want, I’ll use CoverGirl Cheekers “Natural Shimmer” because it’s really neutral.
What mascara disappointed you? L’Oreal Voluminous because everyone loves this so much, but it smudged on me :/ NYX Doll Eye didn’t live up to it’s hype either, but it’s okay and at least it doesn’t smudge!

La Praire Cellular Mascara, Maybelline Great Lash Mascara and Define a Lash Mascara, and many others.

disappointing mascara- MUFE Smoky Lash, didn’t do anything for my lashes and flaked off after like 2 hours, might have just been the one I bought, but I won’t pay $22 to be disappointed again.

1. MAC cremesheen glass in chillin’

2. MAC Raizin

3. Lancôme definicils precious cells; it is just as amazing appearance wise as the original formula but the formula irritated my eyes and made them itch and water excessively.

What lipstick/gloss are you wearing right now? EOS minted lip balm
What blush do you always reach for? Lately Chanel Espiegle
What mascara disappointed you? Can’t remember as I have stuck to my trusty maybelline Colossal Volume mascara for years now..

Lipstick: Splendid (Smashbox) Lipgloss: Richer Lusher (Mac Creme Sheen)
Usually it was Dainty by Mac but I recently fell in Love with Laura Mercier blush in “Lush Nectarine”
Loreal Voluminous Carbon Black, I was looking forward so badly to try it and when I finally did, I hated it. It doesn’t hold my curl at all (I use Shu Uemura) and it transfers/crumbles on my lower lid. I really don’t like it.

I am wearing, MAC Sophisto lipstick with Burgundy lip liner.
My favorite blush for the fall is MAC Raizin, I like Breezy for the Spring
I would have to agree that the Maybelline Falsies is terrible! I just stick with Great Big Lash 🙂

1 – Calvin Klein Sheer Lipstick in Truth
2 – Tracta – Felice (Tracta is a brazillian brand)
3 – Dior Show, definately. The brush is way too big for my short lashes, it adds no volume or length. Maybelline does a much better job!

I’m actually impressed that many people don’t like Maybelline Big Eyes (pink and green tubes). I have tiny lashes and until now, they were the best mascaras I’ve ever tried.
I also like L’oreal telescopic, it does wonders for my tiny lashes, but they make a little mess, I have to admit.

For me, almost every mascara is terrible. They work for people that has big lashes, wich is not my case. Examples:

DIORSHOW: The black isn’t very black, it’s kinda brownish. The brush is huge, it almost blackens my whole eyelid! It curves nothing, it does basically nothing, and I almost never used and it’s already super dry. 24 dollars to the garbage can.

AVON: Every single mascara they have. I bought every single one of them, they’re all crap. The only one that does ANYTHING is Spectralash, but it clumps like hell.

LANCOME: I don’t think it does anything spetacular, my maybellines are better then them all.

MAYBELLINE STILETTO: I bought this thinking it would be as great as the big lashes, but i was wrong. It’s really bad.

What lipstick/gloss are you wearing right now? Absolutely nothing, I had exams today and exams = no makeup
What blush do you always reach for? Benefit Dandelion or MAC Ladyblush which is beig discontinued 🙁

What mascara disappointed you? Revlons-Growlucious

* What lipstick/gloss are you wearing right now? Viva Glam Gaga & Love Nectar Lustreglass
* What blush do you always reach for? NARS Orgasm
* What mascara disappointed you? L’oreal telescopic explosion I hated the brush

1. just lipbalm
2. MAC Darkly My Dear
3. MAC zoomlash zoomblack- I wasn’t expecting it to be good but I was still disappointed (I got it in the Tartan Tale tin)

What lipstick/gloss are you wearing right now? I don’t really like lip gloss for I usually wear them as lip baum around the house; however on the rare occasion that I do wear lip gloss, I wear ELF Lip Shines or Revlon Super Lustrious lip glosses.

What blush do you always reach for? For the last 3 years, I have only worn one brand of pressed powder blush and that is La Femme and my favorite La Femme blush is Plum Frost and Golden Sunset.

What mascara disappointed you? All of Maybelline mascaras I have tried to date followed closely by the Rimmel mascaras.
