Favorite product this month? MAC Mineralize Blush in Sweet Enough

Most used face/cheek product this month? Estée Lauder Double Wear Makeup in Desert Beige, MAC Mineralize Blush in Sweet Enough

Most used eye product this month? Tarte Lights Camera Lashes Mascara

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

Favorite product this month? I’ve fallen back in love with glowy blushes this month, especially the Laura Geller Baked Blush n’ Brighten in Peach Delight. Pink Buttercream is lovely too.

Most used face/cheek product this month? Probably the Lancome Skin Feels Good Nourishing Foundation, though, I think its been breaking me out, so it’s time for a hiatus.

Most used eye product this month? As always, the Viseart Petit Pro Palette (the original), but I’ve also been using the Huda Beauty Obsessions Smokey palette for the shimmery warm light pink shade a lot, as well as the ABH Soft Glam palette. But I’ve also fallen back in love with the Maybelline Better Skin concealer… I forgot how good it is! I’ve given up on Tarte Shape Tape to ever, EVER look good under my eyes.

Hmmm, I’ve been stuck in a make up rut the past couple of months… time to pull an emilynoel83 and use some make up that’s been at the back of the drawer.

Your skin tone/coloring: Porcelain

Favorite product this month? Huda Coral Obsessions and Smashbox Punked Covershot palettes.

Most used face/cheek product this month? MILK blur stick (face), Lunatick Deep Pink (cheek).

Most used eye product this month? Huda Coral Obsessions.

Skin tone: fair neutral
Favorite product for the month: MAC BB Beauty Balm (its a tried and true one for me)
Most used cheek product: KVD contour powder single pan in ‘Sombre’
Most used eye product: Dior pump’n’volume mascara

Your skin tone/ colouring: Fair/ neutral, black hair, blue eyes

Favourite product this month? Pat McGrath MTHRSHP palette La Vie en Rose.

Most used face/cheek product this month? My combination of Fenty Pro Filt’r foundation and Kat von D Lock-It cream concealer if I look at all products, but that’s my standard makeup base right now. If I look at colour products or things I change every day, Hourglass Ambient Lighting Powder in Diffused Light and Bite Amuse Bouche in Gemini (was playing around with different amounts of red versus nude).

Most used eye product this month? La Vie en Rose. It is breathtaking and I’ve had to stop myself from going hog wild and ordering more of her palettes.

I know PMG just sucks you right in and then forget it you’re done. I’m really trying to hold back from buying any more of her palettes. Her lipsticks are divine. The glosses that she just released are not as good as I hoped they would be.

Your skin tone/coloring Fair/Light with cool to neutral undertones
Favorite product this month? Suntegrity 5-in-1 Tinted Moisturizer SPF30
Most used face/cheek product this month? Suntegrity 5-in-1 Tinted Moisturizer SPF30 and Clinique Cheek Pop in Heather
Most used eye product this month? Milk Kush High Volume Mascara

Your skin tone/coloring: Light/pink, blue eyes, Dark Brown Hair.

Favorite product this month? RMS Signature Set Mod Palette or Dior Lip Glow in Coral

Most used face/cheek product this month? Glossier Stretch Concealer in light, Nars Soft Matte Concealer in vanilla, the MILK Matte Bronzer in Baked

Most used eye product this month? L’Oreal Lash Paradise Mascara In Brownish Black

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? Oy vey! Too many, I tell ya. But PMG Luxetrance l/s in She’s Heaven, CP x Shayla C’mon Sis and UD Outspoken l/s’s have seen a ton of usage, as have Smashbox Petal Metal and Rosemantic, UD Beached Palette, CP x Shayla Posed Luster Dust, and MAC Whisper Of Gilt.

Most used face/cheek product this month? Smashbox Rosemantic Highlighter as a highlighting blush. Fenty Profilt’r Foundation, which I’m giving up on. It turns a noticeable and bizarre shade of yellowish orange after a few hours. I love the finish and lasting power, but after consulting with an SA at Sephora who seemed to understand the brand and my issue, we came to the conclusion that I would need 2 bottles to get my shade. I would need 290 and 230 to get a my own dullish olive, very neutral shade. Too expensive, I think? Back to Lancome I go! Or MAC.

Most used eye product this month? Hmm, either Smashbox Petal Metal or UD Beached palettes? Also been using everything else coppery, bronze, teal or green lately. ?️

Your skin tone/coloring: fair, cool
Favorite product this month? Clarins Fix Makeup, Lise Watier Multi Fini powder foundation and Sephora No Mistakes concealer

Your skin tone/coloring: light, neutral

Favorite product this month? Cover FX Lunar glitter drops, NARS Dolce Vita Velvet Matte pencil. Oh! And my newly purchased KA contour powder in Medium!

Most used face/cheek product this month? Becca Poured Pearl highlighter. It’s a stunning, natural yet buildable highlight, and really user friendly. I wore it almost every day when I was on vacation in Beijing and Shanghai, which both have a much more natural aesthetic than the good ol US. 😉 I was surprised to see the Poured line get DC’ed. I guess maybe creams are out, and only powders and liquids are selling?

Most used eye product this month? I’ve been so boring. Either the gold LM Caviar Stick or Stila Stay All Day liner pen in black.

Your skin tone/colouring: Porcelain with pink undertones

Favourite product this month? I have been using a lot more of the bareMinerals Soft and Smokey lately, which has the perfect shades for autumn. I only wish that instead of two vanilla shades, there was a shade like Elitist in it.

Most used face/cheek product this month? I am trying to finish up my bottle of Clarins Everlasting foundation in linen, so I have been using that a lot, with my Clarins Prodige blush in soft peach.

Most used eye product this month? MAC coffee eyeliner

Coloring/skin tone: light medium neutral

Favorite product this month: Smashbox +. Vlada eyeliner in Black Rose

Most used face/cheek product: I spent the month trying to find workable combinations of sunscreen + primer + foundation + powder so no product seemed to be used more than any other.

Most used eye product: Armani eye tint in shade 23, a medium neutral brown that works as a transition shade with my singles as well as the Tryst palette. I am trying to use it up. I’ve even used it to contour. I also used my Japanese drugstore D’Up Volume Extension Mascara everyday.

Your skin tone/coloring: Fair & Warm

Favorite product this month? I picked up GOSH of Denmark’s Forever Waterproof matt eyeshadow sticks in Dubai- 4 very ordinary shades, Nougat (a pinky taupe), Twisted Brown (a neutral taupe), Dark Brown, and Dark Grey. I love them ! They apply easily, blend out smoothly with fingertip or synthetic brush, and wear all day without creasing nor fading. Great to use as a base for powder shadow or doing a simple matt contour on the lid.

Most used face/cheek product this month? Physician’s Formula Mineral blush in Natural Pearl

Most used eye product this month? Those GOSH sticks I mentioned above!

Medium-dark/olive/ yellow undertones
Pat McGrath lipglosses
Vitner’s daughter active botanical serum
Rituel de Fille Lovespell ash and ember eye soot

I got the Exuviae eye soot. After playing with it to figure out the texture and consistency, I ended up really liking it. I haven’t worn it in a long time — you just reminded me. 🙂

Skin colour- usually neural medium with yellow undertones however the sun has been shining at last here in the UK ?? and I have a little tan.

Favourite product- tried a sample of the Elemis Pro Collagen Overnight Matrix cream which was lovely but don’t want to spend £145.00 on a pot. Also just finished a tube of Bath and Body Works French Lavender hand cream. Wish they sold bigger tubes.

Most used face/cheek product: switched to Laura Geller Balance N Brighten as it’s hotter topped with Hourglass Dim Light (will buy more of this product when I visit the US in October). For blush I’m trying to pan the Urban Decay Easy blush from the Gwen Stefani palette. Been using it consistently since January and still not hit pan. Have also used NARS Orgasm this month.

Have finally finished MAC Whenever You Call eyeshadow. Now panning Urban Decay Darkhorse.

Your skin tone/coloring: Fair neutral

Favorite product this month? Anastasia x Nicole Guerriero highlighter palette (so stunning on my skin)

Most used face/cheek product this month? Marc Jacobs O!Mega Tan-Tastic bronzer (I could smell this ALL DAY LONG)

Most used eye product this month? Pat McGrath La Vie en Rose MTHRSHP palette – spectacular, though the deep purple started creasing on my lids after about 10 hours of wear with primer

-Light w yellow to neutral undertones.
-fab this month- Fame palette by CP.
-face face this month- aphrodisiac by CP.
-fave eyes CP fame, obvs, and smashbox primer.

Your skin tone/coloring: Deep Warm with yellow undertones

Favorite product this month? Morphe 3502 palette. this was such a nice surprise. I swatched it in store and it swatched beautifully. I think it gives more commitment to fiery colors than the naked heat and it is so easy to blend out. I love that the browns are not too dark and just so different. This is my only Morphe palette and I have to say I am impressed.

Most used face/cheek product this month? Mac Format

Most used eye product this month? Morphe 3502 palette

Your skin tone/coloring: Fair neutral leaning cool.
Favorite product this month? Probably Becca Backlight Priming Filter. I’ve been either mixing it in with foundation or applying it to only dry parts of my face (avoiding t-zone).
Most used face/cheek product this month? Becca Backlight Priming Filter, Too Faced Primed and Peachy primer on t-zone, and Bite Multistick in Papaya for blush. Been using several different foundations so none are “most used”.
Most used eye product this month? Maybelline Lash Sensational mascara and Glossier Boy Brow in Blond.

Your skin tone/coloring: fair/cool skin (foundation matches: L’Oreal True Match C3 Creamy Natural, Urban Decay All Nighter 2.5, NARS Natural Radiant Longwear 2.0 Mont Blanc), gray eyes, brown hair with red highlights and scattered blonde and blue strands
Favorite product this month? I just got a new set of makeup brushes.
Most used face/cheek product this month? Not sure.
Most used eye product this month? I’ve been playing around with the Kat Von D 10th Anniversary eyeshadow palette a lot since I got it.

Skin tone: Light with freckles, green eyes.

Favorite products this month:
Bobbie Brown Eye-Opening Macara with Lancome Cils Booster underneath. A lot of people have been asking me about my lashes lately, and this is the combo I have in use.
Clinique Even Better Glow Foundation in Cream Chamois has been a new discovery that I’ve really enjoyed. I’ve tested application with a brush, fingers, and sponge, and I’ve enjoyed using a sponge the most to keep the coverage a bit lighter. I’m not used to a float foundation, so this has been nice to use.
Urban Decay Naked Heat Palette was a late birthday gift from a friend, and I’ve really been loving the looks I’ve done with it. I do wish there was a bit more variety in the shades, but I still enjoy it. I left this one at my parents’ house in the U.S. so I can use it when visiting and won’t have to bring too much Makeup back and forth.
Urban Decay Naked Basics was an impulse pickup at the sale price, and I love it for a quick, easy, natural look. I planned to leave it in the U.S. with Heat, but I loved it too much to not bring back overseas with me!

I’m late to the game this week!

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

Favorite product this month? Kat von D 10-Year Anniversary Palette; ColourPop Pretty Much Pigment Palette; Huda Beauty Gemstones Obsessions Eyeshadow Palette; Kevyn Aucoin The Neo-Blush Trio in Sunset.

Most used face/cheek product this month? FACE: E.l.f. Flawless Finish Foundation in Light Ivory; Nyx Angel Veil; Sephora Tranquil (contour). CHEEK: Physician’s Formula Murumuru Butter Blush in Plum Rose.

Most used eye product this month? Huda Beauty Gemstones Obsessions Eyeshadow Palette; UD Primer Potion in Enigma; Physician’s Formula Sexy Booster Va Va Voom Mascara.

Your skin tone/coloring: fair to light yellow/gold

Favorite product this month? I’ve only worn it once, but it blew me away when I tried it: Besame’s 1969 lipstick. I’ve had the multi-mini set for a year or so now, and this was the first time I tried it on my lips since I got it (I’ve swatched it on my hand before). I thought I wouldn’t like it because I don’t usually do colors in that shade range, but it’s the perfect, neutral, medium-dark (on me, YMMV) rose, and is just stunning on. Also, amazingly comfortable to wear. Call me surprised. Not sure if I’m going to get a full-size, but I’ll seriously consider it after my lip product cull later this year, as I really have nothing like it.

Most used face/cheek product this month? Not counting base products, Fenty Chili Mango

Most used eye product this month? I’m in a deliberate rut right now as I work through my lipsticks, so I keep wearing the same neutral eye day after day: MAC Paint Pot in Groundworks. If I’m not going to count that (because it’s less a deliberate choice and more laziness about not wanting to think through eyeshadow combinations that work with a different lip color every day) then I’d have to say Sephora mascara in the burgundy color (can’t read the label).
