Your skin tone/coloring: pale, cool
What’s your favorite limited edition lipstick? Maybe the VIB Rouge lipstick from Bite (I think it was Bite) that was the gift for hitting that level.
What lipstick do you wish would be re-released? Either the original Mrs. Mia Wallace (the “Revolution” formula, I think it was) or Bite Vigne or Zin (from their “old, old” lipsticks) or Guerlain Champs Elysees Rouge Automatique (fabulous lipstick in questionable packaging)
What was the last lipstick you finished? Big shocker – MAC Craving!

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

What’s your favorite limited edition lipstick? I don’t own a limited edition lipstick right now, but I remember licking the MAC Charlotte Olympia Leading Red Lady and Retro Rouge, and the Kiss My Quick lip liner. The whole collection had beautiful reds, although I hated the clear lipstick packaging. That collection stuck to my mind.

What lipstick do you wish would be re-released? Nothing comes to mind, I can find close enough dupes for everything.

What was the last lipstick you finished? I think it was MAC Velvet Teddy… even with my small lipstick collection, I rarely finish a lipstick before it expires. But some are quite short knobs when I throw them.

Your skin tone/coloring: Light neutral skin tone, green eyes, s&p hair

What’s your favorite limited edition lipstick? A couple years ago, MAC had a holiday mini version of Flat Out Fabulous that was in the Matte formula (rather than the Retro Matte of the permanent version) which made it much more wearable for me.

What lipstick do you wish would be re-released? Laura Mercier Velour Lovers Lipstick in Discretion.

What was the last lipstick you finished? I rarely finish a lipstick, so probably Laura Mercier Velour Lovers Lipstick in Discretion! I went through several tubes of it before it disappeared.

Correction on my re-release answer:
I got all confused. I meant to say Laura Mercier Velour Lovers Lipstick in Boudoir. Discretion was an older Laura Mercier lipstick that was also discontinued. It was a great MLBB shade for me. It would be nice if that one was re-released, too.

Your skin tone/coloring: Under my name.

What’s your favorite limited edition lipstick? I would have to say MAC Party Parrot. It isn’t my favorite lipstick but given that it was limited edition and the trouble I had to go to find it, I do love it.
What lipstick do you wish would be re-released? Chanel Midnight Rose. It was discontinued in the early 80’s.
What was the last lipstick you finished? I have finished two “Perfume of His Gaze” and two Elizabeth Arden Red Door Red. I have also made a serious dent in Ilia 99 Red Balloons. I need to see if they are still making it since I obviously love it and wear it often.

Your skin tone/coloring: Under my name (blue-green eyes).

What’s your favorite limited edition lipstick? Too many? Tom Ford Seadragon! And YSL Scout’s Red! MAC Siempre Selena!

What lipstick do you wish would be re-released? UD Revolution Lipstick in Catfight! Perfectly fine with me if they redo it in the Vice formula.

What was the last lipstick you finished? Revlon Colorstay Lipstick in Sienna and also their glossy, shimmery version in the shade Sizzle.

Your skin tone/coloring: light to medium with warm undertones, NC 23ish, hazel eyes, brown/blond hair

What’s your favorite limited edition lipstick? Tie between MAC x Rihanna Viva Glam (the red frost) or MAC x Jade Jagger Sunset Pearl

What lipstick do you wish would be re-released? Tie between MAC x Rihanna Viva Glam (the red frost) or MAC x Jade Jagger Sunset Pearl

What was the last lipstick you finished? MAC Craving

Your skin tone/coloring: Right now, fair/med olive
What’s your favorite limited edition lipstick? Many but right now, MAC Maker Tessa Virtue-even bought my mom one. Such a great wearable soft pink.
What lipstick do you wish would be re-released? Laura Mercier Audrey-I scoured Winners (Canadian TJ Maxx) for it but no luck.
What was the last lipstick you finished? Guerlain Rouge G in Granade, original packaging. Halfway through the second one.

Skintone/colouring: Near the lightest end of the skin spectrum, brunette, grey eyes with a ring of brown around the pupil.

Fave LE lipstick: MAC Feed the Senses! Which I’d like to see make a comeback (in bullet form this time!) and is also the closest I’ve come to finishing a lipstick (I don’t think I’ve ever completely finished one).

Your skin tone/coloring: light, MAC NC 20

What’s your favorite limited edition lipstick? Amor Prohibido from the first MAC Selena collection!

What lipstick do you wish would be re-released? I really love MAC Real Redhead from the MAC Is Beauty Collection

What was the last lipstick you finished? The Revlon Juicy Peach Kiss Balm. Is that close to a lipstick? Otherwise it’s been years since I’ve finished a lipstick!

Your skin tone/coloring: above with freckles, green/gray/blue eyes, warm brown hair.

What’s your favorite limited edition lipstick? Bite Beauty Amuse Bouche in Virgo. The prettiest berry-red I’ve ever seen.

What lipstick do you wish would be re-released? Bite Beauty Luminous Cremes, generally, but more specifically the shade Musk, which is my perfect lip color, but better.

What was the last lipstick you finished? I finished a mini of Tom Ford Casablanca (my second favorite lipstick of all time) a couple months ago, and a full tube of Perricone MD No Makeup Lipstick in the original color, just last week, actually.

Your skin tone/coloring: ^

What’s your favorite limited edition lipstick? MAC Stone

What lipstick do you wish would be re-released? UD Biker Lip Gunk and MAC Folio. Folio was DC by the time I found out about it but I would like to try it out of sheer curiosity and interest in makeup history. It was Angelina Jolie’s signature color in her Billy Bob era and at the time gray lipstick was basically unheard of. I would also love to re-try Chanel Ming, which I loved but couldn’t afford 10 years ago when it was available.

What was the last lipstick you finished? lol

Your skin tone/coloring: pale and cool skin (foundation matches: Fenty Pro Filt’r 110, Urban Decay All Nighter 2.5, NARS Natural Radiant Longwear 2.0 Mont Blanc, Kevyn Aucoin The Etherealist Light EF 02, L’Oreal True Match C3 Creamy Natural), gray eyes, brown hair with red highlights and scattered blonde/blue strands. My everyday base products are Fenty-Amber Match Stick as cheek contour and Pro Filt’r concealer and Soft Matte foundation in 110.
What’s your favorite limited edition lipstick? I don’t buy many LE lipsticks, so maybe UD Beached 100 Degrees?
What lipstick do you wish would be re-released? KVD Thin Lizzy.
What was the last lipstick you finished? None! I also don’t really pay attention to the listed expiration dates-basically if it still looks right and doesn’t smell bad, I’ll keep wearing it.

LOL (expiration dates on lipstick)! I am the exact same way! I find once they get older, like I’ve noticed that the company has changed packaging, gone out of business or discontinued the color, I start wiping them off with a tissue after each use–I’ve kept some Clinique lipsticks around for 5 years by doing that!

I don’t pay attention to powders either.

Eyeliner and mascara, though? I keep close watch!

Your skin tone/colouring: Porcelain, with pink undertones

What’s your favorite limited edition lipstick? I am not sure if it is limited edition, but Maybelline’s Spice For Me (which we can’t get in Australia), CP’s Foolish, Gallop and Tea Thyme – again unavailable in Aus. would be my favourites.

What lipstick do you wish would be re-released? Clarin’s Spicy Cinnamon and Milani’s Cinnamon Spice.

What was the last lipstick you finished? CP’s Foolish – from my first purchase with them. I do have two backups…..

Medium / Mac NC42/ Pat McGrath 15

Limited edition I can’t stop obsessing about us Mac Rio Babe
I wish Mac would re release Charmed Lipgloss

I recently finished Pat McGrath La Beija , Mac Yash and Pat McGrath Bronze Astral lip gloss

But my summer color I’ve been loving is Mac Relentlessly Red💕💕💕

Your skin tone/colouring: Light medium, yellow undertones, dark brown hair & eyes.

What’s your favorite limited edition lipstick? Guerlain Gems and i really liked MAC Funbathing. I have moved past the metallic lip but I remember those 2 very fondly.

What lipstick do you wish would be re-released? The Chanel Hydrabase range was lovely, Rose Drop and Morning Rose were favourites of mine.

What was the last lipstick you finished? Ha ha, never.

Your skin tone/coloring: Under my name; magenta/red hair; hazel/green eyes.

What’s your favorite limited edition lipstick? MAC La Vie En Rouge. Honorable mentions to MAC Von Teese and Tom Ford Stavros.

What lipstick do you wish would be re-released? MAC La Vie En Rouge. And make it permanent, MAC!

What was the last lipstick you finished? About 10 years ago… LOL Max Factor Creme Rouge in #537 and Maybelline Wet Shine Diamonds in Pretty Knit. I think I finished them about the same time. I owned much fewer lipsticks in those days, and both shades were go-tos.

skin town: medium, with olive undertones
favorite LE lipstick: probably UD Mrs Mia Wallace
Lipstick I wish would be re-released: Chanel Rue Rivoli
Lipstick I have finished: the online lipstick I have ever finished, and twice at that! NYX in Cannes, best and least-lasting MLBB color 🙂

What’s your favorite limited edition lipstick? Estee Lauder Pure Color, Bitten Fig.
What lipstick do you wish would be re-released?
Lancome Rouge Absolu, 325 Rose Tea (not the current shade with the same name).
