Your skin tone/coloring: Fair neutral

Favorite product this month? Kat Von D Brow Struck powder in Light Brown. I cannot stop using this brow powder & I haven’t put anything else in my brows this month! In combination with the 75 Brush with the notches in it has also been a total game changer.

Most used face/cheek product this month? MAC Extra Dimension Blush in Sweets For My Sweet. Almost forgot about this blush and I’m kicking myself since it gives my cheeks the most beautiful natural looking flush.

Most used eye product this month? Kat Von D Shade + Light Eye palette. Another forgotten love!

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

Favorite product this month? Does a vanity count? I got a small vanity from overstock.com so I could do my make up in my room instead of the bathroom and I love it so much!

Most used face/cheek product this month? Laura Geller Baked Blush n Brighten in Peach Delight, such a pretty glowy blush; and Revlon Color Charge Highlighter, the one in the single large pan. It is surprisingly amazing! Swatches like crap, but looks so pretty and glossy on my cheeks. I can’t put it down.

Most used eye product this month? MUFE eyeshadow in Pink Granite. I got a little sample quite a while ago, but have recently fallen in love with how shimmery and pretty this color is. I need the full size.

I got a tiny Points Perk of Pink Granite and used it a few times and then completely forgot all about it until just now, reading your comment. I need to pull it out and use it more – it’s perfect for this time of year and for a quick and pretty look.

I like that Revlon highlighter too. Just proof swatching doesn’t mean a product is good or bad. Wish influencers wouldn’t rely on it so much

Your skin tone/coloring: Light neutral, green eyes, dark hair with silver

Favorite products this month? Marc Jacobs Highliners, YSL Vinyl Couture Mascara in I’m the Trouble, and the new Dior Backstage Cool Palette

Most used face/cheek products this month? Estee Lauder Double Wear Makeup and Wet n Wild Megaglow Highlighter in Precious Petals

Most used eye products this month? Marc Jacobs Highliners (various shades) and ColourPop Fame Eyeshadow Palette

(Ok, I know I go on and on about MJ Highliners in my posts, but for the first time in all my makeup-wearing years, after trying zillions of products that let me down, I finally found eyeliner pencils that stay put ALL day, even on my bottom waterline. It’s amazing! I have to thank Temptalia, because I might never have learned about these wonderful pencils without it.)

Skin tone: MAC NC23/NC25

Favorite product this month: YSLrouge pur couture the Mats in 208, a BRIGHT HOT matte cool pink! My favorite warm weather lip!

Most used cheek/face product: bare minerals complexion rescue tinted moisturizer! I LOVE this stuff so much!!

Most used eye product: maybelline lash sensational mascara! I tried it for the first time this month, on the ever lovely jamie paige’s recommendation. And I love it!

Your skin tone/coloring: Medium with neutral to olive undertones.

Favorite product this month? It’s a skincare discovery: the Simple Soothing Face Toner. Since getting pregnant I have struggled with more acne but have been trying to find a toner without BP and SA… this toner does the trick with witch hazel and vitamins.

Most used face/cheek product this month? I have been layering NARS Free Soul on top of almost every blush I use. It’s so light that it serves as a highlighter/highlighter blush on me, but it’s not too cool on my warm summer skin tone.

Most used eye product this month? I’ve been keeping it really simple this month! I haven’t done many eye looks, just a quick swipe of the Milani Stay Matte liquid eyeliner which lasts perfectly in our humid Michigan summers.

Your skin tone/coloring: MAC NC15/ NARS Gobi
Favorite product this month? SK-II Facial Treatment Essence
Most used face/cheek product this month? L’Oreal Lumi Bronze It Bronzer in Light
Most used eye product this month? Laura Mercier Caviar Eye Stick Matte in Au Naturale

Your skin tone/coloring: fair neutral/warm

Favorite product this month?: MAC mineralized skin finish natural. Been using it nonstop everyday. Perfect for taking down mid day shine on top of a full face or just a light dusting for a touch of perfection on those truly minimal product dats.

Most used face/cheek product this month?: Milani Blush is Rose Romantica. On fair skin this is a natural nude blush dream. It has a slight sheen that works on fair skin without making it look overdone or obvious.

Most used eye product this month?: ColourPop single eyeshadow in Tea Garden. I love this color for green eyes. I can do a really light sweep across the lids for a hint of color or pack it on more dimension. I have sensitive eyes that can’t handle a lot of the purple and red dyes. I’ve been really into colors that make my natural coloring pop while still being a little interesting

Your skin tone/coloring: light, neutral
Favorite product this month? Armani Fluid Sheer 11 as a blush/bronzer. I’ve been wearing it almost every day.
Most used face/cheek product this month? The Armani.
Most used eye product this month? Laura Mercier gold Caviar Stick

Also OMG THANK YOU FOR SWATCHING CLOUD PAINT, CHRISTINE! Puff is so pretty and Dawn doesn’t lean as brown as I thought.

Medium Warm/Olive (MAC NC30, Luminous Silk 5.75, Teint Idole Ultra Bisque 370 W, Double Wear Ivory Beige)

Favorite product this month: For new purchases it’s Kevin Aucoin Neo Blush in Rose Cliff.

Most used face/cheek products: Lancome Teint Idole Ultra and Estee’sDouble-wear, Becca Aqua Luminous Concealer, Laura Mercier face powder and secret eye brightening powder, Benefit Hoola Bronzer and MAC Give Me Sun, KA Neo Blush in Rose Cliff and Tom Ford Love Lust, and Becca Champagne Pop and NARS Fort De France.

Most used eye products: I rotated through most of my Chanel Quads. Also been giving Tom Ford Cocoa Mirage some attention. Eyeliners: Pat McGrath’s black pencil liner and Sephora’s Blonde Ambition. Apparently Perricone’s No Makeup Mascara is now my go-to because I haven’t been able to make myself use anything else for the past two months, even though previously I rarely wore the same mascara for two days in a row. It isn’t because it’s the best mascara I’ve ever used. I like it because it washes off easily and completely with water. At my age, every eyelash that falls out is a trauma and this mascara is trauma-free.

Your skin tone/coloring: fair, cool
Favorite product this month? Ren Facial Spray (I forget the name but it’s got some ridiculous “anti-pollution” claim in the name) and La Roche Posay spray mineral water
Most used face/cheek product this month? PUR Minerals powder foundation, the Ren facial spray and an IT Cosmetics CC face palette (the blush is just perfect and the face powder’s none too shabby either)
Most used eye product this month? NARS Kalahari duo with Lise Watier Chic Glam eyeshadow pencil as a base

Your skin tone/coloring: light medium / NW25
Favorite product this month? Lancome Monsieur Big Mascara
Most used face/cheek product this month? Sephora bronzer in Los Cabos
Most used eye product this month? Nars Wanted eyeshadow palette

Your skin tone/coloring: Medium w/ olive undertones, MAC NC37, Lancome Teint Idole Foundation N360, deep brunette, blue-green eyes w/ gold flecks.

Favorite product this month? MAC x Aaliyah collection! Specifically; More Than A Woman lipstick w/ Nevermore lip pencil and topped with some 1 In A Million Lipglass.

Most used face/cheek product this month? Back to Lancome Teint Idole Foundation N360. Never should have strayed! Also, Hourglass Dim Light Ambient Light Powder and RMCA No Color powder have made an enormous impact on how well my foundation and concealer last and look good all day long in this inferno! UD All Nighter is also pulling its weight, too.

Most used eye product this month? Hmmm, it’s a toss-up between using MAC x Aaliyah Age Ain’t Nothing 4 days in row, or just various MAC and CP singles? I will say this, I always use Maybelline Full & Soft Waterproof Mascara in every look, and now Nyx Proof It Eyeshadow Waterproofing Primer, too.

Skintone / coloring : light, MAC NC 15 – 20, med brown hair and eyes

Favorite product this month: I’ve been in the process of moving so most of my makeup is packed up so I don’t have any favorites this month. Also haven’t worn a,lot of makeup either which is unlike me but I think necessary

Favorite cheek product : Laura Geller Hollywood Blushing Trio. What little makeup I have worn included Pink Grapefruit or Maui blush

Favorite eye product : MUFE Excessive Lash Mascara

Your skin tone/coloring: Warm, fair (~Mac NC10); light brown hair with copper highlights; blue eyes

Favorite product this month? MUFE Artist Eye, Lip and Brow pencil in Wherever Walnut. Not as long lasting as I’d like but color is just what I’ve been looking for, so I keep one on hand for touch ups.

Most used face/cheek product this month? Neutrogena mattifying primer — my first such primer, and I’m happy. Otherwise, my usual daily set of products: Smashbox Camera Ready BB in fair/light; occasional touch of Guerlain Peau de Soie mixed in for coverage; LG baked blush in pink grapefruit; Cle de Peau concealer in ivory.

Most used eye product this month? See above re MUFE liner; also, Viseart Liaison from Tryst palette for brightening almost all looks.

Your skin tone/coloring: Very fair with neutral undertones; magenta/red hair; hazel/green eyes

Favorite product this month? Kevyn Aucoin The Neo-Blush Trio in Sunset. It’s magnificient! I plan to wear it like crazy this summer.

This past month, though, I’ve been mostly using the products below with nude or mauve lips. My mom’s death after a long illness left me without the time or energy to be creative.

Most used face/cheek product this month? Physician’s Formula Murumuru Butter Blush in Plum Rose.

Most used eye product this month? Ulta Rose Gold Palette; UD Primer Potion in Enigma; Physician’s Formula Sexy Booster Va Va Voom Mascara.

So sorry for your loss. Hugs to you. My mother in law is very ill and my time is all about her now. I’ve just been doing the basics, MUFE HD Foundation, MAC concealer, an old Avon Rose blush I’m trying to use up, PMG Lip glosses, multiple MUFE eyeliners, Ciate mascara, Guerlain Meteorites Face Powder.

Skin Tone: Pale with cool undertones.
