Your skin tone/coloring: Dark with golden undertones. MAC NC45, Urban Decay 9.0 or 10.0, NARS Macao
Favorite lip combo of the moment? I’m a one-lip-product kind of gal in the first place, and I haven’t really been wearing lip products lately!
One holy grail skincare product? Origins GinZing Eye Cream. It’s a staple!
What shampoo are you using currently? DevaCurl No Poo. Always. 🙂

Skintone/coloring: neutral, very fair
Fave lip combo: Rosey, dark, and bright mattes
HG skincare: spironolactone (a prescription pill that saved my skin from cystic hormonal acne)
Shampoo: TIGI purple shampoo

Hello! My answers are all over the place as the medication I was given also turned to give me awful negative side affects and I was just told to stop so I’m not quintessentially with a routine as I go through through this I’ll be happy to contribute what it would usually be! 😀

■ Your skin tone/coloring: Fairest/thin sensitive; color is added by the veining! 😀
■ Favorite lip combo of the moment? Any balms or lip treatments. My lips are a natural plum/red/purple. Maybe it’s just me, but when I’m sick, I don’t feel like putting germs to my luxury color lippies, I love them too much! And with the GORGEOUS acne from the meds.. Going deeper with my lip color just does not fabulousness make. 🙁 But hydration is super good! 😀 *Positive* A few of my favorites in rotation presently include whatever I can most easily reach and the following: Baume de La Mer, currently on me doing its thang, Tub Aquaphor, not the Aquaphor lippie squeeze tubes; they’re awful to my lips! Sara Happ Lip Slip, MJB Lip remedy, ( blanking on proper titles, sorry), Kevin Aucoin The sensual lip balm.. Everything is “sensual” with Kevin Aucoin.. AmorePacific Moisture Bound Lip Treatment, though I swear it leaves a film but I’m not sure if it’s me or film, and using up another Nivea kiss of moisture, royal blue stick container balm. I used to love those and baby lips, went right through them, now they do nothing for me so I finish them up by exfoliation, honey, and having to reach for them. After these are used up, I’ve a line waiting I cannot wait for! 😀 These are my combos I reach for now. God I’m long winded! 😛 But maybe it will help others, so I go for it. 🙂
■ One holy grail skincare product? Hydrating lippies/balm/treatment and WATER!
■ What shampoo are you using currently? I use a combination of a few great thorough cleanses with Sachajuan Scalp Shampoo, amazing, then Agave Smoothing shampoo/conditioner/oil, adds back moisture, softness, smooth hydration, fantastic, and then I go in with the Oribe Gold Lustre line for some fine pampering! Maintenance is very few wet washings for me and then with Agave oil and Oribe Soft dry conditioner as needed in between. Hair and scalp are better than ever for me with these products! 😀

How’s about you, Christine?

OMG I AM SO SORRY! I’m On a different device and DID NOT notice WHEN I clicked as a reply! I’m so sorry, Barbara! Hello! 😀 Im just going to leave it– It was meant as my own answer.. But you’re all pretty savvy so I thank you for understanding? :/

Your skin tone/coloring? cool and very fair, about mac nw15
Favorite lip combo of the moment? loving the viva glam miley lipstick and gloss together <3
One holy grail skincare product? st. ives timeless skin moisturizer
What shampoo are you using currently? renpure coconut cream shampoo

Your skin tone/coloring: light to light medium with yellow undertones (Chanel B20)
Favorite lip combo of the moment? Don’t have a fave combo! I’ve just been using lip chap lately, it’s really cold here right now (-44C) & I’ve been sick the past few days
One holy grail skincare product? Sunday Riley Crème Charisma Cleanser, it’s the first thing I use in the morning. It’s so gentle & wonderful & can be mixed with Good Genes to make a mask
What shampoo are you using currently? I have a few on the go! Lush’s BIG shampoo (unfortunately this has SLS in it & I’m considering not using it any more which is a shame because I think it’s a good clarifying shampoo, my skin is sensitive because of a mild skin condition), L’Oréal EverPure Volume Shampoo & Moroccanoil Volume.

Your skin tone/coloring: Neutral and pale, NARS Siberia, w/white mixer in the winter
Favorite lip combo of the moment? Bright matte blue-based pinks to deal with the winter blues
One holy grail skincare product? Dr. Dennis Gross Alpha Beta Peels
What shampoo are you using currently? None! I exclusively co-wash

My skin is light.
Favorite lip combo: any caramel-colored lip stick with Marc Jacobs nude lip gloss.
Holy grail product: the Macro Exfoliator from Rodan&Fields. It gets my skin super smooth and takes off so much dead skin!
Shampoo: Japanese brand called Tsubaki.

Your skin tone/coloring: light warm

Favorite lip combo of the moment? Catrice Longlasting Lip Liner in Upper Brown Side + e.l.f. Lip Balm SPF 15 in Rose (super budgetproof!)

One holy grail skincare product? I have a few Paula’s Choice gems in my routine that I am totally hooked on

What shampoo are you using currently? I alternate between different shampoos, at the moment mostly between the Kérastase Densifique shampoo and the Wella Elementals shampoo.

Skintone/Coloring: Fairly light, very neutral; dark-featured.

Lip Combo: Either a tinted lip balm or MLBB shade. Lips are the least important thing-for *me*-in a daily/non-event look, so I just typically grab something randomly. Most of my “go-to” shades are MLBBs or pinky-nudes, so they pretty much all work equally…

Skincare: Oils! Jojoba, argan, coconut, grapeseed, etc… It’s been pretty cold lately (for SoCal standards), so my skin needs optimal moisture. I find pure non-petroleum oils tend to be fully absorbed by my skin, and I get the full benefit, as there are no synthetic chemicals to block absorption of the “good” ingredients. My skin gets the full benefit.

Shampoo: I usually just buy what’s cheap… I’m using Herbal Essences Rosehip-something… They were on sale 2/$6 a while back. My hair is fine with anything, although I do take care of it by not heat-styling on a regular basis, or use styling products.

Your skin tone/coloring: NW10/15
Favorite lip combo of the moment? Chanel Pirate over MAC Cherry lip liner or Chanel Giggle glossimer over a clear lip liner. I’ve been lazy lately, what can I say?

Favorite lip combo of the moment? I tend to do single products! Last combo I did and enjoyed was MAC Studded Kiss with Dark Outsider.

What shampoo are you using currently? Nature’s Gate Awapuhi Volumizing Shampoo.

Your skin tone/coloring: Palest pale (Bobbi Brown’s Alabaster is literally the only foundation even close)
Favorite lip combo of the moment? Chanel Rouge Coco in Rose Comete (found at the bottom of a purse I haven’t used in awhile) with Chanel Glossimer in Daydream
One holy grail skincare product? Mario Badescu Drying Lotion
What shampoo are you using currently? Aussie Volume

Your skin tone/coloring: Light-Medium Neutral leaning warm amber eyes dark brown hair
Favorite lip combo of the moment? Makeup Forever Lip Pencil in 3C with Makeup Forever 4N lipstick over it (from the 50 shades set)
One holy grail skincare product? Probably Josie Maran Argan Oil but honestly every skincare product I use is HG (Fresh Soy Cleanser, Mario Badescu Alpha Grapefruit Cleansing Lotion) but since JM has more uses I’ll say that

■What shampoo are you using currently? Sebamed dandruff shampoo. looool. It’s not glamorous, but it has very good reviews! lololol. I just started it two days ago, so I can’t comment on the efficacy yet. I also use a sulfate free shampoo from the beauty supply store for my wavy frizzy hair. I think the brand is Curls or something? It’s pretty good, I have included it in my rotation for about a year now, along with somethign a little harsher to take care of buildup about once a week.

Favourite Lip Combo of the moment: You know, I very, very rarely actually combine my lip products, but I have actually been entertaining myself by using Guerlain Extrait de Rose (Rouge Automatique) as a ‘glitter topcoat’ for other lipsticks, with some success!

One Holy Grail Skincare Product: Rosehip oil! Not least because it doubles as waterproof makeup remover too, LOL! #studentrogue

Shampoo: Some Palmolive one. I really like it because it makes my hair feel light and clean, but still soft and not stripped.

One holy grail skincare product? Probably Alpha H Liquid Gold or Zelens 3T Complex. I’m in my late 30’s so I’m using more acid toners / treatments and more high tech moisturisers. They work wonders!
What shampoo are you using currently? OGX Nourishing Coconut Milk Shampoo – this, and the conditioner, makes my hair feel so soft and very manageable.

1. pale with olive undertones
2. I do not like layering lip products on top of each other, as it makes them transfer even more. I keep drinking water every couple of minutes and the tranfers are killing me.

4. Head & Shoulders

Your skin tone/coloring: between fair and light; cool undertones, warm features

> One holy grail skincare product? Estée Lauder ANR. It made a difference (i.e. smooth out fine lines and plump skin) after the first use and continues to do so after over a year of daily usage. Big love.

> What shampoo are you using currently? Kevin Murphy Angel. Pricey but makes a huge different to my fine hair compared to drugstore shampoos.

Your skin tone/coloring: fair/light, warm
Favorite lip combo of the moment? hourglass icon lipstick. I have the matching lip pencil but not sure if it’s the best to use with it – it darkens it quite a bit and I like the brightness of the color on its own. I generally don’t put gloss over lipstick, unless I’m doing a nude lip (and even then I pat it way down).

Your skin tone/coloring: Light to light/medium with strong yellow.golden tone (even foundations that most people complain of as “too yellow” look peachy- or pink-y on me)

Favorite lip combo of the moment? I don’t combine lip products, with the exception of adding a balm underneath or using a clear lipliner to keep some products in place. However, my current go-to lip colors are from Colour Pop (Creature, Bichette, Pitch) for drama, or Performance Colors (Rumor, Pink Chocolate, Incognito) for more subtlety — about evenly split between all of them, as I change my look daily
