– Your skin tone/coloring:
Light-medium with neutral undertone, around N25.

– Favorite glittery product?
ColourPop Nillionaire, followed by Shu Uemura’s IR Pink and G Bronze eyeshadows.

– Favorite your-lips-but-better lipstick?
Jordana Twist & Shine in Terra Crave.

– Favorite face mask?
I don’t really wear face masks, but if pressed, probably Paula’s Choice Skin Recovery Hydrating Treatment Mask! I wear it more as an intensive night cream, though, since it’s a no-rinse mask.

Glittery Product – Colour Pop shadows. Hard to pick a shade, but it’s the best glitter shadow that doesn’t fall out like crazy.
MLBB – Colour Pop Kiddo, but honorable mention to UD Sheer Liar. Colour Pops formula just stays on better and is more moisturizing.
Face Mask – GlamGlow Thirsty Mud. I got a sample during the holidays and debating buying a bigger size, but it’s pricey.

Your skin tone/coloring: Fair, cool
Favorite glittery product? oh, this is difficult….maybe MAC All That Glitters or Tempting or Stila Nude Shimmer or Wheat….I love shimmer (these might rate more as “shimmer” than “glitter”). So for full on “glitter”, Anastasia Pink Champagne or UD Maui Wowie (the newer one, which still has crazy fallout but it’s less than the original)
Favorite your-lips-but-better lipstick?/strong> MAC Brick-o-la
Favorite face mask? Borghese Fango or PUR Minerals Pascalite Mud stuff (I think they’ve renamed it but it’s still the same product). I also really like La Neige sleeping mask but I don’t really think of it as a “mask” in the old school sense; it’s more of a moisture booster than a deep cleaning product.

Your skin tone/coloring: Medium, warm to neutral, brunette
Favorite glittery product? Glitter like, GLITTER? Not shimmer? Probably Sephora Ultra Shine Lipgloss in Dazzling Violet
Favorite your-lips-but-better lipstick? UD Sheer Liar or Sheer Rapture
Favorite face mask? Fig+Yarrow Rose Clay Mask. My husband got it for me as a stocking stuffer and it is ah-mazing. It’s a powder that you mix with any liquid (water, yogurt, honey, aloe, etc). I’ve only used water and its a little messy, but it smells like herbal heaven and it feels like it physically vacuums the crud out of my pores. It’s a very deep clean.

Your skin tone/coloring:
Fair, Cool – NW20

Favorite glittery product?
If I detect glitter I RUN! The only ‘glitter’ product I own and use is MAC All That Glitters eye shadow.

Favorite your-lips-but-better lipstick?
MAC Fast Play

Favorite face mask?
Dermalogica Skin Refining Masque

Your skin tone/coloring: Light-Medium with Yellow Undertone (MAC NC20-25)
Favorite glittery product? High from Urban Decay Naked Smoky Pallete (it just adds glitter, so I can use it with any color)
Favorite your-lips-but-better lipstick? MAC Brave (I have quite pigmented lips)
Favorite face mask? Homemade clay mask (but if I had to pick a commercial one, is the clay mask from Paula Choice)

Mac NC 30 (light medium, warm)

URban Decay’s heavy metal eyeliners have always been my favorite way to add a little sparkle to my eye looks.

The closest I’ve come to MLBB? Urban Decay’s Naked (Revolution)

I really enjoy all the Glamglow masks and Boscia’s Luminizing Black Mask.

Have to answer this, 2nd to reverse engineering. Thanks again. Probably NW 25, in summer. HAH! Glitter: looking around downstairs m/u, rather a bit old for glitter. Prob s.t. In a Vice palette. Mlbb: Dolce Vita, Rhubarb, Hot Chocolate. Mask: can’t read easily; only the ingredients are in English. Is Japanese. It’s an astaxanthin/ hyaluronic one. For eyes: My Beauty Diary. It’s the only MBD without aloe, sadly for me (only.)

A bit closer look shows the mask is by Kose, from their Clear Turn mask line. Kose is the parent company for both Tarte and Rimmel now. FIS, neither is considered a prestige brand by Kose. Guess their high end is higher than US definition.

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

Favorite glittery product? ColourPop Super Shock Shadows. The glitter stays bound in them and the colors are beautiful.

Favorite your-lips-but-better lipstick? Urban Decay Sheer Rapture. I have very pale lips, that get slightly mauvey-pink at the edges.

Favorite face mask? NuSkin Epoch Glacial Marine Mud.

Your skin tone/coloring: Porcelain
Favorite glittery product? Urban Decay Oil Slick liner. Also recently I’ve been loving ColourPop Dance Party shadow.
Favorite your-lips-but-better lipstick? the only one I own is Buxom Dolly ๐Ÿ™‚
Favorite face mask? Albertini Warm Love Pumpkin mask

Your skin tone/coloring: Medium-tan with warm undertones (NC40)
Favorite glittery product? Urban Decay Cosmic
Favorite your-lips-but-better lipstick? Lipstick Queen Butterfly Ball in Trance (I have pigmented reddish-pink lips)
Favorite face mask? Ettang Modeling Cup or (for something much more intense) Ole Henriksen Power Peel. The Modeling Cups come in different types but I find them all to be pretty similar. They all help with pore size, congestion, irritation, and dullness, and the effects are longterm.

Your skin tone/coloring: light to medium with yellow undertones, dark brown eyes, black hair
Favorite glittery product? Revlon Snow Pink lip butter. Urban Decay Maui Wowie is a good one but I don’t own it anymore, sadly.
Favorite your-lips-but-better lipstick? Tarte Glitzy, Urban Decay Sheer Rapture
Favorite face mask? I don’t have one. I’m not a face mask person at all!

Skin: fair/golden
Hourglass: Ambient powder
MLB Lips -Bobbie Brown Italian Rose
Masks: I’m a mask fiend, but if I have to pick one it would be Sisley Black Rose

Your skin tone/coloring: NC15 with some redness

Favorite glittery product? MAC All That Glitters is the one that comes to mind

Favorite your-lips-but-better lipstick? Marc Jacobs Kiss Kiss Bang Bang

Favorite face mask? Peter Thomas Roth’s Pumpkin Enzyme Mask

Your skin tone/coloring: fair, warm
Favorite glittery product? Colourpop Game Face; not ‘glittery’ per se, but super metallic
Favorite your-lips-but-better lipstick? UD Lovelight
Favorite face mask? SK-II Cellumination Mask-In Lotion is closest to a mask that I use

Your skin tone/coloring: Light/ neutral
Favorite glittery product? MAC All That Glitters eye shadow
Favorite your-lips-but-better lipstick? Origin’s Liquid Lip Color in Really Rosy mixed with Revlon’s Pink in the Afternoon
Favorite face mask? Origins Drink Up Intensive Overnight Mask

Skin tone: Fair, porcelain
Glittery product: I don’t really use glitter but I love shimmer.
Lip Product: Milani Bronze Metal
Face Mask: Ego Hydrating Gentle Hydrating Face Mask. I use it once a week and it is fabulous.

*Chanel New Moon-love to pop it on top of neutral shadows to add a kick
*BITE Luminous Cream Lipstick in Shiraz -sadly DC’d and not re-issued in new formula ๐Ÿ™
*Peter Thomas Roth 40% Triple Acid Peel- a game changer for my skin

Oh I mis-read the last question – The Body Shop Aloe Protective Restoring Mask – I actually leave it on overnight ever night, on top of my retinols

It’s a liquid acid peel, that I leave on for about 15 minutes then rinse off, and it gently removes all dead skin cells, so my skin is extra smooth and bright. I can usually skip primer for the next couple of days. At 47, I have to be extra diligent about exfoliation. It’s pretty pricey at $88 , but comes with 12 ampoules. One ampoule is good enough for 3 uses ( I just stick a fat toothpick in there to seal it and save it for next time), and if you use once a week, will last 36 weeks or about 9 months. I’ve been using for 2-3 years, think only Sephora sells it now, and I’ve stockpiled an extra canister.

Skin Tone: Fair/Cool/Porcelain
About the only glitter I wear is Urban Decay Metallic Liner in Distortion
MLBB: Charlotte Tilbury Pillow Talk Lip Cheat Liner with a clear gloss
Any of the Glamglow masks but I loves masks so will try almost anything.

Skintone: Fair with neutral undertones

Favorite glitter product: Rimmel MagnifEyes double-ended shadow stick in Queens of the Bronze Age– one end is a creamy copper/bronze shade and the other is a cool-tone champagne glitter. The bronze side is great but the glittery side is surprisingly my favorite. It’s subtle and sticks around on the lids.

Favorite your-lips-but-better lipstick: Nars Dolce Vita lipstick.

Favorite face mask: Lush Brazened Honey is my all-time favorite!

Coloring: light, neutral-ish, brown hair, brown eyes

Glittery product: I’m 100% pro-glitter, so this is a tough decision!

The (highly underrated) Japonesque Pixelated Color palette makes my list, and UD Bordello is my probably my favorite non-overkill glitter shade.

Also, now that I’ve replaced my damaged UD Gwen Stefani eye palette, I remember how much I love the shade Pop (especially now that I have a palette where Pop is not broken and has not formed glittery dust all over every shadow that survived the drop).

MLBB lipstick: UD Ex-Girlfriend hands down.

Face mask: I don’t really use them.

Skin tone: Fair-light neutral
Favorite glittery product: UD Heavy Metal Glitter Eyeliner in Gunmetal
Favorite MLBB: Marc Jacobs Sheer Lipgel in 110 Role Play
Favorite face mask: Clinique Acne Solutions Oil-Control Cleansing Mask

Your skin tone/coloring: NC 15, NARS Sheer Glow in Gobi
Favorite glittery product? Does MAC Fly by Twilight eyeshadow fit the “glittery” desicription? Do not use shimmer/glitter much so it is the one I like the most of the few shiny stuff I have.
Favorite face mask? I really like Korean sheet masks for the price, Korean face masks in general. All you need is to find one that suits your needs.

Your skin tone/coloring: Medium w/olive undertones MAC NC37-40, deep brunette, teal-green eyes w/gold flecks.

Favorite glittery product: Too many!!!! MAC Courtly Coral Dazzleglass, OtherEarthly MSF ( soft micro-glitter), Colourpop “3”, DGAF, Moonshine and Cheap Date eyeshadows! (Possibly at least a dozen more that I’ve neglected to mention!)

Favorite MLBB lipstick: MAC Mehr or Too Faced Pink Chocolate.

Favorite face mask: Glam Glow! ( the one in the charcoal container) or Pur-lisse Sheet Masks!

Your skin tone/coloring: light to medium warm

Favorite glittery product? Tom Ford Soleil Blanch Shimmering Body Oil

Favorite your-lips-but-better lipstick? Tom Ford No Angel

Favorite face mask? Dizao Collagen Face Mask

Your skin tone/coloring: Deep Dark NW50
Favorite glittery product? Some of the Colour Pop Shadows
Favorite your-lips-but-better lipstick? MAC Del Rio or MAC Cream in Your Coffee
Favorite face mask? I’m obsessed with sheet masks from many brands, but my holy grail mask is the Aztec Clay mask. If you have problem/acne prone skin/oily skin, you need this!

Skin tone/coloring: Extremely fair and extremely pink. NW13 but pinker than that (MAC bases are too neutral for me in general). Blue eyes and dark brown hair (currently dyed pink).

Favorite glittery product:
Glitter shadow? Colourpop’s Bubbly.
Glitter in general? Atelier Paris’s Sparkles. They’re extremely finely milled glitter and their glitter adhesive will keep a swatch on my arm through the night without feeling sticky. Just beautiful.

Favorite my-lips-but-better lipstick:
In general if I wear lipstick I want to be able to notice a difference, but I do keep a tube of Too Faced Melted Peony around as a MLBB. Also Rimmel’s lipliner in 063 Eastend Snob.

Favorite face mask:
Lush’s Cosmetic Warrior. I love how my skin feels after this mask and it’s gentle enough not to aggravate or further redden my skin.

Your skin tone/coloring: NC15
Favorite glittery product? Several of the ColourPop super shock shadows and Urban Decay moon dust shadows
Favorite your-lips-but-better lipstick? Probably Urban Decay Sheer Beso or MAC Finally Free
Favorite face mask? I don’t really use them much but I do like the Origins charcoal one

Your skin tone/coloring: dark deep with redundertones
Favorite glittery product? mac glitter
Favorite your-lips-but-better lipstick?/strong> i think it’s touch by mac but the formulation idk, mine has mold so i had to throw it but I know there is a good dupe wiich is teddy bear by milany so i want to buy it !
