Sisley Phyto Cernes Eclat Eye Concealer and Natasha Denona 28 Pan Palette in blue/purple

Most used cheek product: MAC Cheeky Bugger blush from the Kelly Osbourne collection (I bought this by accident and have since fallen madly in love, but it only shows up on my skin tone during winter when I have lost some of my color) and Tom Ford Love Lust (the original version, and again, it only shows up on my skin tone this time of year, but it’s stunning when I can see it).

It’s been my only truly neutral eyeshadow until I ran out to Ulta this afternoon and grabbed the UD X Kristen Leanne Daydream palette ? and I just ordered the CP give it to me straight palette despite the lack of community enthusiasm.

Sometimes I add a small drop CoverFX Candlelight drops to my NARS all day luminious foundation (Macao) and it gives me a great glow. I have dry skin and would not recommend this for oily skin.

Most used eye product this month? Too Faced Better than Sex Mascara (black) & Benefit They’re Real Mascara (black), I put on the Benefit mascara to separate my lashes and then Too Faced to increase volume. I love the combination.

I’ve often found that layering two mascara formulas gives me the best results! I haven’t experimented with it recently, but I will now! Thanks for the reminder!

Skin Tone: NC15/NC20

Favorite Product: Son and Park Beauty Water. This is gentle and I use it in the PM after cleansing and in the AM as my only cleanser. It’s gentle, soothing, and does a great job of getting my skin ready for moisturization.

Blushes: Nars Exhibit A and UD Crush

Eyes: TF Just Peachy Mattes with Tarte Exposed Highlighter as a lid shade for this week.

This year I have been participating in Palette of the Week, along with Blush of the Week and this gives me the opportunity to know my palettes and blushes better. I have destashed some palettes/blushes to family and friends that I used to like. This has really helped me refine my collection. By using the Vanity here on Temptalia I learned that I have a type when it comes to lipsticks, blushes, and eyeshadow palettes. Can we just say DUPE CITY 😀

Colouring : I wear KVD Lock it Foundation in Medium N2

I had a sample of Bare Minerals Intense Power Serum and it blew me away. Have bought a bigger sample size.

Finished my Benefit Dallas blush this month and now working on Easy by UD.

Again I panned a Smashbox shadow from the Full Exposure palette and now working on MAC Whenever You Call.

Skintone / coloring : light, MAC NC 20, med brown hair and eyes

Favorite product this month : ABH Prism Palette. Too Faced Just Peachy Mattes. MAC Pressed Pigment in Day Gleam. Clinique High Impact Black Mascara. Laura Geller French Vanilla Highlighter. Cover Girl Tru Blend Blush in Medium Rose

Most used cheek product : Cover Girl Tru Blend Blush in Medium Rose. Laura Geller French Vanilla Highlighter

Most used eye product: ABH Prism Palette. Too Faced Just Peachy Mattes. Day Gleam Pressed Pigment

Coloring: Fair/light with cool to neutral undertones.

Warning, I haven’t worn makeup much this month.

Favorite product this month: I recent picked the UD green color correcter back up and I have used it every single time I’ve done my makeup. I forgot how much easier it made concealing the overall redness on my cheeks!

Most used face/cheek product this month: Fenty Matchstix in Amber to contour or Glossier Cloud Paints in general (no specific shade).

Most used eye product this month: For non-color cosmetics, its still the UD Primer Potion and Tarte Lash Paint Mascara. For color cosmetics, I’ve been maintaining the same mixture of ABH, MUG, CP, UD, Kylie, and a few miscellaneous singles, and I haven’t really been sticking with any one eyeliner.

Your skin tone/coloring: NW45-47

Favorite product this month? Ben nye coco tan powder

Most used face/cheek product this month? Tonic blush from Colourpop

Most used eye product this month? Essence Lash Princess Mascara

Skin tone/coloring: neutral warm (really liking Estée Lauder’s Double Wear water-based formula in 4N1 (Shell Beige) even though it’s a tiny tad bit more neutral than warm. Looks so good on me (at least I think so. 😉 )

Fav product of January 2018: Still Too Faced’s “Boss Lady” palette from before Christmas. I’ve been using lots of new palettes and singles, but somehow my feel good thoughts often go to “Boss Lady”. Had to force myself not to take it to Glasgow with me so as to try something else.

Most used face/cheek product this month? Hmmm, I do my cheeks as a sort of afterthought (just to balance things out), but there’s no question that this indie highlighter/blush is the bomb, and a staple for me. (I’m away, so I can’t confirm, but I think it’s Kaylux’s “Most Nominated”. Just a great copper-rose, duo chrome type bronzer/highlighter/blush. I can get away with just using it and nothing else on the cheeks and look really nice.

Most used eye product this month? Other than eyeshadow from any of five new palettes or singles (please pray for me!), Zoeva’s eyelid primer. A tad spicy, but once I let it set, it works.

Your skin tone/coloring: Fair, neutral-to-olive, hazel eyes, very dark auburn hair
Favorite product this month? My single powder eyeshadows! I’m falling back in love with them. Most of mine are MAC, ABH, and Makeup Geek. I’ve especially been loving ABH Stone and Ash Brown in a look with MUG Homecoming and MAC Mylar and Handwritten, or MUG Creme Brulee and MAC Mylar as a simple look.
Most used face/cheek product this month? Physician’s Formula Butter Bronzer in Light Bronzer. I’ve decided it’s a little too yellow for me, although I love how light it is. I have a feeling I’ll hit pan soon-ish, so I’ve probably got about a year’s worth left. I hope get a good way through it in 2018 and then pick up the Bronzer shade.
Most used eye product this month? L’Oreal Extra Volume Collagen mascara. It’s a new one to me (I usually use Voluminous Carbon Black) and I quite like it!
