Your skin tone/coloring: Dark/Cocoa

Favorite product this month? Hard to say. I decided to create lists of all my beauty products (EVERYTHING) and laminated them on my vanity and have been using one palette, lipstick, etc a day so I’ve not used one product most this month which is nice to actually see what my collection has to give me that I’ve forgotten about. I’d say my most worn lip Brand was Urban Decay because I wasn’t using the lips in any particular order like I am the palettes

Most used face/cheek product this month? Fenty Highlighter in Hustla Baby

Most used eye product this month? Oh, the same black liner from Ciate.

I haven’t done a list of ALL of my products, but I did create a lip product spreadsheet that I can sort by brand name, shade name, color group, formula, or finish. My plan is to use at least two rarely used lipsticks per week, which has led to some nice rediscoveries within my own collection.

If you don’t mind my asking, what is your favorite Urban Decay lipstick? Mine is Morning After. It’s my perfect everyday shade. On Ulta (Sephora doesn’t carry it) it is described as a pale baby pink with cool undertones. It definitely has brown in it, too, though. I love it! The Vice Lipsticks are better than MAC, in my opinion, and the bonus is that they’re cruelty free! :)) I hope you have a wonderful day! Oh, and do you think the Ciaté liner would work on someone with oily, hooded, and deep-set eyelids like me? (I have special needs eyes. 🙄). Thank you sooo much, and have a wonderful couple of days!!

Most used eye product this month? Linda Hallberg Enchanted Secrets Zephyr (pink duochrome).

Favorite product this month: I’m still loving my Dior Backstage highlighter palette. I’m still using my NARS lipliners in Menton, Porquerolles, Sainte Maxime, and Juan Les Pins every week and love them more with each passing month. I am testing Fenty’s Profilter foundation and I am trying not to like it because I think the coverage is too much and the texture is too chalky (surely it is aging me and I just can’t see it yet…), but I have to admit it looks pretty good. I have been using my Linda Hallberg synthetic brush kit and liking it more than I did the first week. The 304 blending brush works well for my sparkling shadows, and this makes no sense to me as it is not the shape I would normally reach for when applying shimmery shades. Maybe it’s because it’s synthetic? I don’t know, but it works just as well as my finger and I don’t have to stick my fingers in my shadows.

Most used face/cheek products: Fenty Profilter, Hourglass Translucent Setting Powder, and Dior Backstage Highlighter Palette.

Most used eye product this month: I am currently using and loving Kat Von D MetalMatte and Mi Vida Loca Remix Palettes daily. I’ve been dipping into all my Pat McGrath and Viseart palettes every week too.

Favorite product this month – UD Beached eyeshadow Palette, ABH, Soft Glam, & Charlotte Tilbury, The Uptown Girl Palette, for a more cool look. I was surprised how much I loved the 2 teal colors in the Beached palette. Makes a great accent for my color eyes.

Most used face/cheek product this month – ND Diamond & Blush. Love! Has everything I need in it, for warm/cool blushes, highlighters, & an even more intense one, the diamond powder, that I used occasionally.

Most used eye product this month – My UD primer potion, my Sephora contour eyeliners in Good Mood, Tiramisu, & My boyfriends jeans. These are NICE. Also my Lancôme artliner in a dark chocolate color.

Most used face/cheek product this month? Armani Fluid Sheer No. 11. It’s my everyday blush-bronzer.

Most used eye product this month? Blink mascara with the Shiseido curler. I’ve been getting up for work too early to do eye makeup. On the actual lid, I’m lucky if I have enough time to slap a one product look on, like with Fenty Confetti, NARS Oaxaca, or Laura Mercier Sand Glow.

Your skin tone/coloring: Light with neutral to yellow under tone
Favorite product this month? JS Blood sugar palette
Most used face/cheek product this month? Colourpop no filter foundation and loose powder
Most used eye product this month? Colourpop eye shadow palettes

Your skin tone/colouring: Porcelain, with pink undertones

Favourite product this month? Milani Colour Statement lipstick in Tuscan Toast, MAC Fresh Moroccan lippie and EA’s lipstick in Cayene Pearl.

Most used face/cheek product this month? Designer Brands Velvet Matte foundation in porcelain ivory.

Most used eye product this month? I decided to dust off my bareMinerals Playlist palette, after owning it for a couple of years and not really using it as I thought the shades were a bit too bright. But no, they are stunning and shades that I wouldn’t have worn in the past (like the coppery ones), I now love. Bareminerals produced some great eyeshadow palettes back then.

Your skin tone/coloring: Fair neutral

Favorite product this month? ABH Norvina palette – haven’t put it down since I got it!

Most used face/cheek product this month? CYO Lifeproof foundation – recommended by YouTuber ThaTaylaa and it is amazing. It’s the most beautiful natural satin finish and has great coverage. I use Charlotte Tilbury Hollywood Flawless Filter underneath and it’s a stunning combo. And the foundation is only $5 after ThaTaylaa’s promo code on Walgreens.com!

Most used eye product this month? NARS eyeshadow base as always and the Norvina palette.

Skin tone: Very fair with cool undertones. Grey hair and brown eyes.

Favorite product from this month: I would like to say UD Born To Run palette but haven’t had it long enough. I will have to go with Dior Iconic Overcurl mascara. I have been loving it this month. Of course, I don’t use it alone but in combination with other mascara’s but that is true of all my mascara’s except CG Super Sizer.

Most used face/cheek product: Cover FX Illuminating Setting Mist and Catrice Glow Mist. I have been into the glowy skin look lately.

Most used eye product: I have been using a combination of Milani Eye Shadow primer and NYX Waterproof Smoothing Primer and have been enjoying the combination. Also the above mentioned mascara.

I have porcelain skin with neural undertones. I’m much fairer than NC10 and my perfect match (my one and only match—if only other companies would make pale shades!!!) is Kat Von D Lock-It Foundation in Light 41. I also wear her concealer in Light 1, the first concealer ever to not be too dark and actually is a little brightening under my eyes! Those are the face products I’ve been in love with all month, and not just for the shades, but because I love the products, themselves. I adore her Shade and Light Contour palette. All of the highlights are way too dark, but the first contour shade works nicely if I very lightly tap my fluffy brush into the product twice and tap it off and blend very well. If I didn’t do all of that, I would look like a child who had rubbed dirt on her face! My most-used eye product this month is the Kat Von D Shade and Light Eye Contour palette. I love it to bits!!! I only wear matte shadows, so this is perfect for me. I also don’t fancy colored eyeshadow, so the tones are perfect. My two favorite quads are the cool and warm quads. I just bought skincare—boring! 😉 —and Too Faced Matte and Poreless Pressed Powder (in love), Urban Decay Naked Ultimate Basics palette—very upset that it’s on sale because it’s being discontinued, because I adore it and cannot believe how pigmented, crease-resistant (on my hooded, deep set, oily lids without primer when I was testing the products), and buttery blendable the shadows are. I love the colors, too! I also just got Urban Decay 24/7 Glide On Eye Pencil in Demolition, a black brown. I’m very pleased with the liner, too! It really pays to speak with a Beauty Advisor on the phone—they’re so helpful!! The powder is the best powder I have ever tried. It makes you look airbrushed!

Your skin tone/coloring: Light to medium, neutral slightly yellow undertones
Favorite product this month? Laura Mercier Radiance Foundation Primer
Most used face/cheek product this month? I try to finish my ancient Soleil D’Été Poudre Libre. So, this loose powder bronzer.
Most used eye product this month? Mac Bare My Soul quad

Your skin tone/coloring: Fair with neutral undertones and freckles, warm medium brown hair and blue/green/gray eyes.

Favorite product this month? theBalm BalmShelter tinted moisturizer mixed with a little bit of IT Cosmetics CC cream. It’s divine.

Most used face/cheek product this month? Probably my Laura Geller Baked n Brighten Blush in Pink Buttercream and any of my cream highlighters. Also, do brushes count? I’ve been using my IT Cosmetics Love’s the Foundation brush with the above favorite product combo and I love it. I also discovered that my Real Techniques large crease brush (the one that came in an eye set they released a few years ago) is an amazing concealer brush for under the eyes! So soft!

Most used eye product this month? My BH Cosmetics Life’s a Festival palette. I’ve had a lot of fun this month coming up with colourful but wearable eye looks and that palette has been great to experiment with.

Your skin tone/coloring: Medium Tan Neutral Mac NC 40
Favorite product this month? Nars Forte de France highlight
Most used face/cheek product this month? Mac MSF natural in medium tan
Most used eye product this month? Urban decay naked petite heat
