Your skin tone/coloring: Medium/Light with pink undertones

Last product that disappointed you? The newer Wet n Wild foundation everyone was gushing over on YouTube. I have seen few foundations that looked worse on me. Fortunately, it was cheap so I didn’t waste too much $.

Last product that impressed you? Two Faced Natural Love palette. First Two Faced product I ever purchased as I don’t buy into that brand at all, but could not resist that palette, it is gorgeous!

Last product you resisted? QVC’s latest IT Cosmetics TSV.

Your skin tone/coloring: Fair/light with neutral undertones.
Last product that disappointed you? Hmmm, probably Covergirl Supersizer. It flakes off too much for my liking!
Last product that impressed you? Epigram from the UD Jean-Michel Basquiat collection! I love it so much.
Last product you resisted? Still resisting Modern Renaissance palette, and now the Mac Fruity Juicy collection!

I resisted the ABH MR palette till a couple months ago. I just KNEW the red tones would make my eyes look red and awful. No. It’s really as wonderful as everyone says. Don’t resist!! LOL

If you wear the red in the crease more than on the eyelid, it’s really stunning. The formula is stunning and there is a ton of looks you can create. The hype is well deserved but you do have to know how to use the colors:) Don’t resist buy. It’s worth it!

Your skin tone/coloring: NC 15
Last product that disappointed you? Bareminerals original foundation, it’s not oil controlling at all. I thought being a powder foundation it should be somewhat ok for my oils, but my T zone got shiny within about 4 hours.
Last product that impressed you? UD mortifying touch up powder. I just got it in the mail last night. So easy to being with me for touch ups, mattifies and blurs so nicely. Although can use a better puff tbh.
Last product you resisted? Chanel’s 2016 fall collection. I was so into the matte eyeshade palette! And now that I found viseart I’m gonna save up for the warm mattes instead.

The original Bare Minerals foundation has bismuth oxychloride in it, which gives the skin a subtle shine. If you’re already oily then the bismuth oxychloride will add to the shininess. The matte one is slightly better but I would recommend the new BarePro powder foundation instead as it’s semi-matte: http://www.sephora.com/barepro-performance-wear-powder-foundation-P410543?skuId=1850874&icid2=products%20grid:p410543

Your skin tone/coloring:
Light medium

Last product that disappointed you?
MJ matte highliner. I didn’t had problems with MJ highliners befor, but since I used the mattes, my eye lids reacted horribly to it.
Since then my eyes are also reacting to my favorite mascara UD canon ball, and UD 24 liners.
I bought a new tube of canon ball mascara, but again my eyes react to it. :(((

By Terry sun designer palettes #3 and #4.
Definitely not as good as last years palettes.

Last product that impressed you?
Benefit cheek parade palette, love the sents and the colors.

Pretty sure you can figure out your new sensitivity by comparing ingredients and using Cosdna info. That’s how I figured out benzyl salicylate, which nailed me in mufe waterblend. Since last summer, I have been able to avoid all my problem ingredients, with an ingredient scan beforehand…..and I have a bunch. Haven’t had a single issue since last summer. Course, it took me 2 years to find a decent foundation match w/o chem sunscreen, but knowing has been invaluable. Once you know your drill, avoidance becomes a piece of cake, as do the costly mistakes.

Skin tone: light/medium with warm undertones

Last product that disappointed: Benefit Cheekathon Blush Kit

Last product that impressed: Melt Cosmetics Gunmetal Stack

Last product you resisted: Natasha Denona Star palette (with the Sunset palette a close second).

I’m so bummed I missed out on the Cheekathon palette! What didn’t you like about it? I heard Coralista was completely different.

Skin tone: Medium Warm

Disappointed: Burberry Liquid Lip Velvet (I don’t like the formula at all)

Last product that impressed me: So many, and all during one trip to Sephora. I spent over two hours in the store testing products and applying my make up and ended up very impressed by Marc Jacob’s Re(Marc)able Foundation, Marc Jacob’s O!mega Bronzer, Marc Jacob’s Air Blush, Marc Jacob’s Re(cover) Perfecting Coconut Setting Mist, Anastasia’s Brow Powder Duo, Sephora Pro Brow Brush #20, Kat Von D Lock It Edge Foundation Brush, Ole Henriksen Pure Truth Youth Activating Oil, and Dior Addict Lacquer Sticks.

Last product you resisted: I couldn’t buy all the products I loved at my recent trip to Sephora so I walked away without the foundation, blush, Kat Von D foundation brush, and the Ole Henriksen Pure Truth Oil.

Your skin tone/coloring: deep with golden undertone

Last product that disappointed you? Stila magnificent liquid eyeshadow. Didn’t work for my oily eyelids

Last product that impressed you? Bobbi brown skin foundation. Looks so beautiful!

Last product you resisted? Ive been resisting buying a new lipstick or highlighter altogether I

Your skin tone/coloring: light to medium with yellow undertones, dark brown eyes, black hair

Last product that disappointed you? Pur Epic Illusion face palette. Chalky and tiny pans. No good.

Last product that impressed you?Maybelline Instant Age Rewind concealer. I actually see a difference on my undereyes when I use it. Other concealers barely cover my dark circles.

Last product you resisted? ColourPop Liar Liar, Bel Air, & Bouquet Toss eyeshadows. They’re B2G1 right now with free shipping but eh…idk.

Hi Joyce…

The Benefit blush palette is a good deal IF the colors actually show up! It seemed like the colors just dissolved upon contact with my skin, and it didn’t matter which one, so I guess the formula just doesn’t agree with me. I have the same experience with NARS Orgasm which everyone but me seems to love. For reference, I don’t wear foundation, only tinted moisturizer, so perhaps that’s the issue.

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

Last product that disappointed you? Notoriously Morbid Lip Shimmer — It’s a gorgeous purple tinted lip balm, smells great, and is very moisturizing, but it doesn’t last long at all on the lips. Medusa’s Make-up Witch Lash Mascara — It made my lashes look great, and I was not allergic. However, it takes a very long time to dry down. It smudges super-easily, even after drying.

Last product that impressed you? Urban Decay x Basquiat Gold Griot Palette: I thought this would just be another neutrals palette with a pretty gold, but I’m really loving it and have worn it all week. I’m also loving the Epigram lipstick much more than I thought I would. The color actually looks wonderful on me. I’m pretty in love with the whole collection, really.

Last product you resisted? SauceBox Mermaid Life Palette. It was just too pricey considering I’m out of work right now.

Oh no, Rachel – I hope you get another job soon. The SauceBox Mermaid Life palette looks good, but it does remind me of the UD Spectrum palette which is better because it has more shades.

Thank you, Genevieve. It’s not that bad, as my husband is the main breadwinner. The last two years I’d been getting paid by the state through Developmental Disabilities Services to care full-time for my older son, but he no longer qualifies for that particular program (the pitfall of be developmentally disabled but having a high IQ). I might be able to get a similar deal through another program in the future because of his mental health issues.

Next week I’m meeting with Developmental Disabilities to finalize caring for my younger son. It will only be part-time, but it will be enough. I’ll still be cutting way down on the makeup purchases, but Lord knows I have more than enough makeup. lol

Your skin tone/coloring: NW45-47
Last product that disappointed you? nars liquid highlighter in laguna, this is so sheer ;(
Last product that impressed you? essence brow gel
Last product you resisted? modern renaissance by abh , i don’t need it .

Your skin tone/coloring: Dark
Last product that disappointed you? Mayabeline Fit Me Concealer. Not only did it crease on me like crazy, the deep shade was not deep at all. It was medium dark, too light for me to use alone.
Last product that impressed you? Baremineral’s barepro foundation. It last on me for hours and the color selection is great.
Last product you resisted? KVD lip liners. I’ll get them eventually, I just don’t have the money to spend on them when I have a lot already.

Your skin tone/coloring: fair, cool
Last product that disappointed you? the left side of Nars Rue Allent (but I sort of knew that going in!)
Last product that impressed you? does the Foreo my children got me for Mothers Day count? For colour cosmetics, probably Smashbox Legendary lipstick. I always feel so happy and bright and attractive every time I wear it
Last product you resisted? Becca Foxglove Luminous Blush and MAC Wrapped Candy Extra Dimension Blush

KGD 013, prob nw 15-20. Think only temporarily disappointed with MAC mocha blush. Think a stiffer brush will do it. MAC p&p pink. That sample will turn into a purchase. Resisted: the Ciate and PV blushes.

Your skin tone/coloring: fair warm (~NC10), blue eyes, light brown hair w/copper highlights
Last product that disappointed you? #2 of Viseart Nuance palette
Last product that impressed you? most of the rest of the Viseart Nuance palette
Last product you resisted? so far, Viseart warm neutrals (I’m weakening, though)

Your skin tone/coloring: Very Fair/Cool

Last product that disappointed you? Armani Micr-Fil Loose Powder in pink; it’s a duochrome highlighter masquerading as a loose powder. A big no that went back to Sephora immediately.

Last product that impressed you? That’s a draw between the Dior Addict Lacquer Stick in Sulfurous and the new Chantecaille Lip Sleeks in every shade – though I’m most surprised by my love of Coral. I wouldn’t have guessed that would have looked so nice on me.

Last product you resisted? Hmmm, the By Terry Sun Designer palette in Savannah Love – I keep looking at it but I know that gold shade won’t get used and the dark bronze wouldn’t work on my face, but would make a good shadow color. Also, does it count as resisting if I only picked up two of the new By Terry Blackstar Stylos? I resisted getting all the colors!!

I picked up Purpulyn Gem (deep plum) and Tasty Truffle (bronzy shade slightly metallic); there are 8 shades total including a black, metallic copper, a champagne shade, metallic navy, bronze green, and a mint. These have a pointed tip instead of the rounded tip. They were released at the same time as the new sun designed palettes, but didn’t really get much attention for some reason.

Your skin tone/coloring: Light medium, yellow toned.

Last product that disappointed you? Mario Badescu Drying Lotion. Just a bottle of isopropyl alcohol with some spendy pink gunk in the bottom.

Last product that impressed you? Mizon sheet masks – lovely to use, affordable and very effective!

Last product you resisted? Kate Somerville Wrinkle Warrior – I got a sample and loved it but $!$!$!$!

I’m light-medium neutral I was disappointed in Stila magnificent metals in sunset cove. I got it to look decent over another shadow but not lower lash line like Christine. Looked garish.
Impressed with coola pina colana sunscreen spray and love the Becca palette.
I resisted NARS orgasm blush.

Your skin tone/coloring:
Light-medium

Last product that disappointed you?
Chanel quad in Tisse Venetien. The product itself is quality–it’s not that. I simply do not like it very much. That silver, oh no, not for me.

Last product that impressed you?
Tom Ford Quad in Nude Dip. A new item and current obsession.

Last product you resisted? That would be productS, plural. 🙂 Tom Ford quad in Honeymoon; Chanel quad in Jardins de Lumieres (the review here holds me back), and Chanel blush in Rose Profound.

Colouring : medium with olive undertones
Disappointed by Boots Extracts Mango body butter – smelt synthetic
Impressed by Kat Von D Tattoo liner. Only have deluxe size but it is lasting so long. Really easy to apply too.
Resisted last Laura Geller QVC TSV.

Your skin tone/coloring: medium light
Last product that disappointed you? Urban Decay’s Nocturnal palette: colors too dark and heavy, don’t blend at all.
Last product that impressed you? Marc Jacobs Genius Gel foundation looks like a custom mix for me, blends well, and builds well. Lovely feel, like nothing at all.
Last product you resisted? The new By Terry blush mix…

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

Disappointed : Becca Ever Matte Priming Perfector. It’s supposed to be so great for oily skin and it does mattifying skin for a hot minute but I still get oily by the end of the day. I don’t see the point of primers for the face. None of them work or have that amazing of results

Impressed: Colourpop Eyeshadows. I’m impressed by how long they stay, how easy they are to use and how pigmented they are. Love them!

Resisted: The new KVD liquid lips and the LE Buxom White Russian lip gloss.

Skin tone: Fair with cool undertones.
Disappointing product: Urban Decay lip
toppers. Did not wear well on the lips and caused my lipstick to slide around.
Impressive product: UD lip toppers. Amazing on eyes!!!!
Product resisted: Makeup Store Cosmetics Pink palette.

Light to medium, neutral to slightly yellow undertone
Disappointed from Tom Ford 06 blush brush…it sheds. The S.A told me, if continues to shed after a wash, she will replace it. Will see.
Last product that impressed me, Oyedo by Diptyque
Last product I resisted, Burberry Dark earthy blush

Your skin tone/coloring: NC15 w/some redness

Last product that disappointed you? The Body Shop Vitamin E Aqua Boost Sorbet. I was trying to find a lightweight moisturizer that didn’t irritate my skin as their Vitamin C is now doing so because of my meds, but while the Vitamin E one doesn’t bug my skin the texture is awful! It’s very pill-y and feels like putting a silicone primer on! Thankfully it was a sample the salesperson gave me to try so I didn’t waste any money.

Last product that impressed you? Farmacy Green Screen

Last product you resisted? I’m trying to resist some of the NARS Charlotte Gainsbourg lip products (mainly as they aren’t all in one place and I’d have to buy one item from one store, two from another, etc).

I’m so unsure of my coloring lately, but my skin lately is pretty fair! I’m cool-toned with fairly deep freckles, mostly concentrated along my cheeks.

Disappointing product:
-I tried a bit of NYX butter lip gloss in Fortune Cookie, and it settled into lip lines terribly on me. Glad to have tried it before buying, even if they are inexpensive.
-WetnWild Photo Focus – not sure about the hype here! Didn’t fare too well on my combination/oily skin.

Impressed with:
-Bite Beauty Agave Lip Mask in Champagne…still enjoying my sample! I have a tube of original (and a back up!) but I might need to add this one as well for a natural lip balm look.
-Tarte Shape Tape…tried just a smidgen on my eyes in Ulta, and I see where the hype comes from! I think I prefer it to the NARS Radiant Creamy I’ve been wanting. Once my current concealers are a bit more used, I might have to pick this up!
-Urban Decay Naked Skin Powder Foundation in Fair Cool….yep, I’m pretty light right now! Tried it in Ulta and was pleasantly surprised by the finish and coverage. This will be used often for quick daytime looks, for sure! Hoping to grab a backup at the low sale price!
-Urban Decay Shapeshifter in Light/Medium is good so far! Staying power definitely beats my Sleek contour kit. I’m still new to contouring, but I think I like this palette so far. The color correctors are also doing a great job of masking undereye issues.
-theBalm Meet Matt(e) Nude and Matt(e)trimony — I only searched them in the store, but what a nice, creamy formulation! When I can find a way to justify more eyeshadow, I will consider grabbing up one of these!
-Makeup Geek Faux Fur matte eyeshadow has been getting a lot of wear time, and I love Voltage as well! Shimma Shimma is a nice shadow that reminds me of my old favorite, Stila Kitten
-RCMA No Color Powder is so basic, but reliable! It isn’t really oil-absorbing, but I love that it’s virtually undetectable on the skin and doesn’t look cakey.

Probably many more I’m forgetting!

Resisted buying: many mentioned above! Like Shape Tape, theBalm palettes…I can’t buy everything I like, or none of it will ever get used!

Your skin tone/coloring:
Medium dark strong yellow/golden tone.

Last product that disappointed you?
Dior lip lacquer( waaaay overpriced for a lip balm) beautiful color horrible lastability!

Last product that impressed you?
Hourglass radiant bronzer LUV it!

Last product you resisted?
Hourglass radiant bronzer..LOL

Your skin tone/coloring: light/medium with yellow undertones

Last product that disappointed you? Makeup Forever Ultra HD foundation – I need to try it again now that my skin is normal/dry, but when I had oily skin this only worked for 5 minutes
Last product that impressed you? Bare Minerals BarePro pressed powder. I encourage everyone to try this – I wear this instead of foundation everyday and it’s amazing! Also loving Mario Badesco’s rose primer water.

Last product you resisted? Modern renaissance – I’ve been avoiding this forever, but I’m glad because I bought the Mario Palette and love it. Not really a fan of orange/red eye shadows. Also resisting Nars creamy concealer…not sure how long that will last tho lol

Skin tone/coloring: Fair with neutral undertones

Last product that disappointed you? UD Vice lipstick in Ex-Girlfriend. I think it’s a really lipstick that enhances my natural lips and looks natural, but it only lasts about 30 minutes and it leaves that weird white film along the inner edges of my lips.

Last product you resisted? Currently resisting the Kate Sommerville UncompliKated SPF 50 setting spray and anxiously awaiting the NARS liquid blushes to hit Sephora.

Your skin tone/colouring: Porcelain with pink undertones
Last product that disappointed you? Laura Mercier Translucent powder – for the price ($57 here) you really get a small amount of product….
Last product that impressed you? One of Shiseido’s night time moisturising creams that I got as a sample. It costs mega bucks for the full size, but it was beautiful on my skin.
Last product you resisted? I was looking at one of Sephora’s own Milk to Dark Chocolate 5 pan eye shadow and the gold in it was quite beautiful…. but I have lots of golds and a couple of neutral palettes so I walked away.

Your skin tone/coloring: Extremely fair
Last product that disappointed you? Milani Blush – Bella Bellini – I had never tried anything by Milani – not pigmented at all. And Marc Jacobs Re(marc)able Foundation – the color was so off – my fault so I may or may not reorder their lightest shade. Undecided.
Last product that impressed you? MAC Extra Dimension Blush in Cheeky Bits – my HG. And also MAC Prep and Prime Natural Radiance Base Lumiere in Pink.
Last product you resisted? It was a blush quite some time ago.

Your skin tone/coloring: Fair, cool to neutral, hazel eyes, blonde hair.

Last product that disappointed you? Lavanila Healthy Deodorant. I had the Pure Vanilla in travel size and I loved it. I picked the regular size in Sephora two weeks ago and either something changed in the formula or I got bad butch as the surface became very grainy and it is irritating my underarm skin. I hoped it will smooth upon contact with the warmth of the skin but to no avail. I will go tomorrow to Sephora to return it. I’ve ordered a new one, the Fresh Vanilla Lemon this time, and hopefully this one works.

Last product that impressed you? Ciaté London Go-To Illuminating Blush in Date Night. It is a very beautiful colour and I have nothing similar in my collection. It is described as Amber Pink, however on my fair skin it is more like a peachy taupe sort of shade, if that makes sense. Very soft formula, buildable, perfect for the summer. I ordered another one in Summer Love (Apricot Pink).

Also, I was really impressed by two products from the Estée Lauder x Victoria Beckham collection: the bronzer in Saffron Sun and the Modern Mercury highlighter.

Last product you resisted? Nars Orgasm Lipstick and Liquid Blush. Not sure I will resist though once they become available at Sephora. .

Your skin tone/coloring: Light to Light Medium

Last product that disappointed you? Kat Von D Alchemy Highlighter palette. It was just “meh” and (can’t believe I’m saying this because I adore Kat Von D products), a not-so-cheap knockoff of the Anastasia Moonchild palette

Last product that impressed you? Urban Decay’s latest collection with Basquiat. The quality, packaging, and colors are amazing!

Last product you resisted? I’m still resisting the Modern Renaissance palette. I keep looking at it and then putting it back.

Oooh you should get Modern Renaissance. It really is the best thing around. I love the Basquiat collection. I got an eyeshadow pallete, gold griot, and a lipstick, the beige one, cannot remember the name right now. I’m not even an UD fan but have enjoyed this collection!

Your skin tone/coloring: NC 15, NARS Sheer Glow in Gobi
Last product that disappointed you? Hmm.. Not disappointed, it’s still beautiful and high quality, but it did not work the way I expected it to. I’m talking about MUFE PRO LIGHT FUSION #1. When I swatched it on my hand the glow was sooo beautiful and even that I snatched it right away. On my cheeks, however, it works a bit differently. I don’t know, maybe s/o would recommend me how to apply it correctly, but using RT setting brush makes it look so shimmery as soon as enough light hits your face. Sparkles central 🙁 They are the most beautiful sparkles I’ve seen, mind you, but I don’t want them on my cheeks. Please let me know what you find works best for its application, cause the product itself is superb.
Last product that impressed you? MAC Next to Nothing powder. Perfect amount of pearl while being sheer and it sets foundation pretty well.
Last product you resisted? The abovementioned powder, simply cause I need to finish the ones I already have. For the same reason resisting MAC Prep + Prime Essential Oils Grapefruit & Chamomile. Heaven for my dry skin, works well with makeup, but the products I already have should not be neglected, money wasted. Good thing they are both permanent, so hopefully I’ll get to both eventually.

Your skin tone/coloring: Fair with neutral undertone

Last product that disappointed you? Cover FX Illuminating primer – I don’t think it meshed well with my Lancome and Estee Lauder foundations, my foundation broke down into a mottled mess quickly

Last product that impressed you? ColourPop pressed eyeshadow palette in Blow Me Away (the peachy shades), they are so pigmented and a great price!

Last product you resisted? MAC Fruit Juicy

Your skin tone/coloring: Fair, cool
Last product that disappointed you? Guerlain 5 Couleurs Eyeshadow palette in Inde des Bois
Last product that impressed you? Make Up For Ever Water Blend Foundation
Last product you resisted? NARS x Charlotte Gainsbourg eyeshadow in Old Church Street

Your skin tone/coloring: NC 15-20, some olive

Last product that disappointed you? Milk MARS. Like literally I think I got a defective one

Last product that impressed you? Tie. ABH Modern Ren and Chanel Warm Base “Bronzer” AMAZING

Last product you resisted? Natasha Denona Sunset Palette (hypothetical totally sold out) and also her sculpting palette, which I swatched at Sephora yesterday and it is EVERYTHING.

Can I just say (yet again) how much I love this type of survey???? I think this is one of the features that really lets us get a sense of who the other participants here are or what they’re like in real life (well, in their real “makeup life”) – there’s something so nice about getting a little peek into others’ temptations, purchases, attempts to exert a bit of “restraint”, etc.

I so second that! I love these surveys too and learn so much from it. I have a question how do you ladies know your skin tone by letters/numbers? Lol! I’m lost always wondering?
I’m a pale cool shade ghostly the type whom burns red in the sun and dreams only of a golden tan. I have hazel eyes and dark brown wavy hair.
Disappointing product: Although i love the Boots/No. 7 lipstick colors and own 6 they
don’t last on my lips unfortunately and I keep looking at new ones ’cause I love them! I love many other things from Boots their eyebrow kit is really nice. Blushes, eyeshadows.
Another disappointing product was Pixie liquid lipstick/gloss is so good and runs off all over lips. You have to wait to dry up and then wear gloss I don’t like it at all I got it as a hand me down gift. Yuck!
WetnWild I love their mattes lipsticks not drying at all and always leave a nice stain even if fading. I wear chapstic below then my lipstick. Their liquid lipsticks are awesome too! At night I dab a bit Vaseline on my lips. Never dryness. I swear by Chapstick for saving my lips I’m a runner/gardener workshop the sun!
Impressed by: Colourpops eyeshadows would love to own them all! Lol!
Resisting: walking into Sephora I’ll be in big trouble! Love NARS! And everything else there. Life is short buy pretty makeup! Lol! 😉

Your skin tone/coloring: light with subtle warm undertones.

Last product that disappointed you? I picked up some eyeliner pencils by TheBalm at cosmoprof, and I had high hopes because I generally like the brand. They are definitely inconsistent and a few are unusable.

Last product that impressed you? Colourpop Ultra Satin Lip in Mess Around. I bought it because it’s supposed to be a dupe for LimeCrime Cougar from their M$LF set. I have a pet hatred for lip sets that force you to buy colors you already have/ don’t need just to get one color you want. I can’t vouch for the dupe because I don’t own Cougar, but it’s a beautiful color and the formula is one of my favorites.

Last product you resisted? UD×Basquiat. It’s gorgeous and I want it, but I don’t need it.

Your skin tone/coloring: Medium-tan with golden undertones (NC40)
Last product that disappointed you? Ouai Wave Spray. It just does nothing for my hair, which is already slightly wavy. I prefer Not Your Mother’s Texturizing Sea Salt Spray.
Last product that impressed you? Juvia’s Place Saharan Palette. The colors are so gorgeous and every shadow is easy to work with.
Last product you resisted? Viseart Dark Mattes. I’ve been coveting it for years now but dropping $80 on some makeup at once is hard.

Ugggh you’re making me want the Saharan palette. I’ve been lusting after for some time. How dare you say it is beautiful and easy to work with lol

Your skin tone/coloring: Very fair with yellow undertones and pink overtones

Last product that disappointed you? The Ordinary Vitamin C emulsion (It’s the MAP one). It’s non-irritating and I think it’s helped with my PIH, but the results weren’t as impressive as I was hoping and I hate how it pills if you rub it too much.

Last product that impressed you? Andalou Naturals Luminous Eye Serum — like a drink of cool water for my dry undereyes, and absorbs quickly with no residue.

Last product you resisted? UD Basquiat palettes (on sale!) — I have so many gold, bronze, and brightly-colored UD eyeshadows already. I don’t need these ones.
