Medium warm (MAC NC30)

Favorite product: Chanel Rouge Allure in Incantevole

Most used face product of March: NARS Unfiltered cheek palettes, both I and II. I have been trying to make IT Cosmetics CC Cream work for me but I haven’t had much success.

Most used eye product: Clinique Lash Power Mascara and Benefit Stay Don’t Stray eyeshadow primer.

I love everything about Incantevole! The color is the very definition of spring but still in a refined and sophisticated manner. The formula is possibly the best I’ve ever owned, and I own hundreds of high end lipsticks. I am 52 and lipstick is becoming more problematic, but this lipstick does not feather, settle into the lines on my lip, and is moisturizing enough to prevent chapping but not so moisturizing that it’s sheer or short-lived. The color is flattering on my medium warm skin tone, I mean, very very pretty! It mixes well with my red, pink, and orange-leaning lipsticks to create various colors. It looks lovely on its own and breathtaking with a pop of pink, orange, or raspberry gloss. I truly love Incantevole💕

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

Favorite product this month : MAC Qween Supreme Eyeshadow Palette. Benefit Dandelion Twinkle Highlighter. Physicians Formula Butter Bronzer. Fenty Killawatt Highlighter in Lighting Dust & Fire Crystal.

Most Used Cheek Product: MAC Cosmic Force Blush. Fenty Killawatt Highlighter in Lighting Dust & Fire. Benefit Dandelion Twinkle Highlighter.

Most Used Eye Product : MAC Qween Supreme Eyeshadow Palette. MAC Broque eyeliner. I don’t have a most used mascara bc I’ve been rotating them but I have really enjoyed MAC Extended Play Gigablack Lash Mascara. Been in love with MAC mostly this month!

~Your skin tone/coloring: fair neutral/cool
~ Favorite product this month? Clinique pretty easy eyeliner – I usually see Clinique as a boring brand, but this has a great brush tip that makes doing my eyeliner…pretty easy (I had to)
~ Most used face/cheek product this month? Bite multisticks as blush – I like the natural flush I get from Cashew and Gelato
~ Most used eye product this month? I think it’s going to be the ABH Master Palette by Mario since I’m trying to pan it this year.

Your skin tone/coloring: Fair with yellow undertones and surface redness.
Favorite product this month? I know it just came out, but I adore the Winging It cheek duo from Colour Pop. It’s so perfect and everything I’ve been looking for in the cool true lilac cheek.
Most used face/cheek product this month? Maybelline Master Chrome Highlighter in Molten Rose Gold and MUR bronze shimmer highlight
Most used eye product this month? Colour Pop Give It To Me Straight and MUR Reloaded Iconic Vitality.

Your skin tone/coloring: fair (mac nw10)

Favorite product this month? resdiscovered my love for the urban decay all nighter foundation – the shade 0.5 is a touch too dark but I get away with it by wearing high necked shirts. this foundation + baking = all day wear, which is a miracle on my oily skin.

Most used face/cheek product this month? there’s nothing I’ve been consistently using, but have been liking becca blushes (wisteria & snapdragon) as well as the new becca parisian lights highlighter.

Most used eye product this month? this might count as cheating since I just got it last week, but I have been loving the pur x boxy charm collab! on days where I’m not using that, I’ve mainly been reaching for colourpop singles as I have a bunch and have been trying to make a conscious effort to “shop my stash” more often.

Skin tone/coloring: medium neutral, blue eyes, chocolate brown hair

Favorite product this month: just purchased last week, but I think it is a Kryolan single eyeshadow in lime green, satin finish

Most used face/cheek product: I am trying to use things up so I wore Benefit Benetint on my cheeks everyday and Laura Mercier Radiance Primer as a highlighter every day. I finished the LM this morning.

Most used eye product: I switched around my palettes and liners all month and have been trying new mascaras since finishing Lancôme Monsieur Big a few weeks ago so I don’t think I used any product more than any other this month.

1) Fair with cool undertones
2) Anastasia Brow Wiz
3) Maybelline Fit Me Matte and Poreless Foundation
4) Colourpop Double Entendre Palette

Light to medium neutral leaning yellow.

Favorite product: Dior Nudeskin Air Luminizer 001

Most used face/Cheek product: Dior Luminizer!

Most used eye product: Viseart Tryst Palette. Loving the coral/peach tones.

Skin tone: light medium with neutral undertones (I used to think my complexion leaned warm but that’s only when I have a tan);

Favorite product this month: the new Pat McGrath eye shadow palettes;

Most used face/cheek product this month: NARS Unfiltered I Cheek palette (I purchased this before NARS decided to sell in China and lost its cruelty-free status):

Most used eye product this month: LORAC Behind The Scenes eye primer.

Your skin tone/coloring: light skin with neutral to pink undertone

Favorite product this month? ABH Soft Glam palette. The color scheme is so wonderful and I love the blendability of the shadows.

Most used face/cheek product this month? Nabla Gotham. Such a natural contour shade.

Most used eye product this month? Nabla Dreamy palette and ABH Soft Glam palette.

Your skin tone/coloring: Dark with yellow undertone
Favorite product this month? Soothing Taste Lavender salt scrub (so relaxing!)
Most used face/cheek product this month? Milani face and eye strobe palette
Most used eye product this month? Wet n’ Wild megaLength

Skin tone: Very pale with cool undertones.

Favorite product: Dior Snow Blush in 03. I have really been into blushes lately. Not sure why but I have purchased so many lately and have never owned this many blushes in my life. It was never something I particularly cared about. Anyway, both of the Dior Snow blushes that I got are just beautiful with embossing and coloring in an homage to origami (sort of a passion of mine along with makeup) and I have used them both a lot the second half of the month. They are my favorite type of blush that has a little shimmer and goes on the skin perfectly. 03 is the paler white/lavender/pink shade.

Most used face product of the month: The above mentioned blush and my usual foundation the Chosungah 22. I have also been using the Dr. Jart BB cream in the shade “light” on days I am not doing a full face of makeup and have been enjoying that also. It is much more neutral than the Chosungah and like the Chosungah it has a good SPF.

Most used eye product: Milani eye shadow primer.

I purchase from Toshiya @fudejapan. You can go to the Instagram at the IG address @fudejapan and when you see something you want or are interested in then you can leave a comment and Toshiya will respond and tell you how much. If you want it you simply leave a comment saying you want it and they send you an invoice to your email address. I have been purchasing this way for about a year now and have never had any issues. They are very responsible and professional. They will give you the price in yen and so you need to convert via google but when you are ready to purchase then you go to paypal and use the sending money option for “friends and family ” and paypal will make the exchange based on the days best rate. At this time, shipping is a flat rate of 2000 yen so I will have them hold my purchases (I pay but they don’t ship) until I have enough to warrant shipping at that price. I have purchased quite a bit that is either limited edition and not available here or never was going to come to the US. If I can help in any other way just let me know. This is a link to my IG where I show the two that I purchased.
