Your skin tone/coloring: Pale and cool-toned

What was the last lip product you purchased? Revlon’s lip butters are being discontinued so I picked up the last three in Pink Truffle at my Ulta. MUFE N9 is a great dupe, but I’m not ready to graduate to that price point yet for a workhorse everyday lips color.

What was the last product you returned? An Essence bronzer. The color wasn’t right for me.

What’s the next product you’ll likely buy off your wish list? I’m sure I’ll scoop up any discounted Pink Truffles I come across. I want the OPI mini set from their recent New Orleans collection.

Ulta has them down to $4.29 (from $8.99). I checked out the Target display when I stopped there for cleanser…prices were their normal $5.99 but not a lot of shades left. Good luck haha!

That’s unfortunate to hear they are being discontinued. We still have the entire collection available here in Canada, but it makes me wonder if we will soon be seeing the same trend. I’d seriously be devastated since I regularly wear 6 different shades (Lollipop, Raspberry Pie, Sugar Plum, Red Velvet, Cherry Tart and Pink Truffle).

Apparently the lip butters are being replaced by the new HD lipsticks (which incidentally I haven’t heard great things about). The Raspberry Pie shade was already discontinued in the States. I wonder if it’s the sort of product people don’t repurchase. I know a lot of women who started out with the butters and then moved on to bolder lip products once they felt more comfortable with wearing makeup.

Could also be the trend for bold, opaque, and matte lips, as well. I loved the lip butter trend because every brand had a range of sheer but pretty colors. It’s not a product I’m seeing from any brand as often these days, where it’s all about the liquid lip.

I agree, I think sheer lips aren’t so popular anymore. For what it’s worth, the light and medium-toned balm stains have a similar sheer/glossy look, though the shade selections are different.

Ah, that’s interesting. Thanks for the input.
I tried a Revlon HD lipstick and I really don’t like the formula. On me it appears similar to a liquid lipstick, which I don’t typically wear. I guess the thing I love about the lip butters is having a gloss with great colour pay-off. Just the right intensity to be wearable at the office. And, of course, being super affordable (at my last stock-up I grabbed several for $4 each).

Oh wow! The Revlon lip butters are SO popular and budget friendly! I have a few, very easy just to throw on. And the Revlon Ultra HD lipsticks didn’t get great reviews. How sad 🙁

Gee whiz…I did not know this. I need backups of Red Velvet and a few other shades that I’ve used over the years. SDM has 20X the points tomorrow so I’ll grab a few and hope they don’t go “off”.

Skin tone/coloring: fair neutral, currently wear Nars foundations in Siberia.

Last lip product purchased: Tarte matte in Frenemy

Last product returned: Tarte matte in Frenemy (it looks nearly identical to Kat Von D’s liquid lipstick in Vampira, and I prefer that formula).

Next product to buy off my wishlist: Givenchy prisme libre magnolia couture edition (have to get my hands on it, so beautiful!).

Your skin tone/coloring: light to medium warm

What was the last lip product you purchased? new Labello lip balm

What was the last product you returned? Can’t remember! We don’t get to return stuff here…

What’s the next product you’ll likely buy off your wish list? I just received a BIIIIIIIIIIG beauty haul featuring loads of stuff from my USA make-up wish list, so I’m good for now!

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

Last lip product you bought: I bought 4 in a single purchase, all UD: Bad Blood, Time, Bittersweet and Alice.

Last product you returned: MAC The Fashion Flock lipstick. I could NOT get that one to work on me no matter what I did, so I finally gave up.

Next product you will likely buy off your wish-list: Tom Ford Honeymoon quad!!!

As an aside, to all my fellow Greater Phoenix metro area dwellers; today is THE day that they claim we’ll hit 100° for the 1st time in 2016….yuck!!! ?

Your skin tone/coloring: Light medium with warm to neutral undertones
What was the last lip product you purchased? A backup of Sephora Ultra Shine Gloss in Love Me Pink (discontinued)
What was the last product you returned? Sephora Ultra Shine Lip Gloss in Vintage Pink
What’s the next product you’ll likely buy off your wish list? Ugh, hopefully nothing fake a while since I just caved for Skin Fetish 003 Nude! If the pigments release alone I might get the gold version though.

I am waiting for the Skin Fetish in nude too. I really feel unusually guilty about this purchase, I hope the product is worth the splurge.

I just came home to mine… personally I think it was worth it! The crazy hype/ anticipation kind of added to it in a weird way. But the product itself – the color is out of this world! The powder is so finely milled it is creamy. It really is a “glow” with no discernible shimmer or glitter particles. The shimmer in the stick is super finely milled, too. I’m not excited about the brush; I feel like they put it in there to help get the price up and pad their margin.

It kind of reminds me of Viseart in that you pay a lot of money to get drugstore quality packaging filled with incredible product. ha! And a lot of sequins. I hope you love it, too!

NC15

Purchased – US Sheer Liar lipstick for $11
Returned – Rainforest of the Sea foundation, it didn’t blend well for me
Wish List – probably a Colour Pop order, I want to try the eyebrow pot and a bunch of the new products!

Your skin tone/coloring: dark warm

What was the last lip product you purchased? UD sheer anarchy -I love this color and formula.

What was the last product you returned? Tarte lights camera flashes mascara- I couldn’t remove this even with water proof eye make up remover. It felt like I was taking out lashes, too. I love the light camera lashes mascara.

What’s the next product you’ll likely buy off your wish list? Blushes: Becca luminous blushes (I want to swatch them in store, though) and MAC blush trace gold.

Your skin tone/coloring: NW20 cool undertones
What was the last lip product you purchased? Revlon Matte Balm in Passionate (I’m got it home and noticed it’s a very close dupe for MAC Have Your Cake – which is great since it’s LE!)
What was the last product you returned? I rarely return. Whatever doesn’t seem to work out always goes over well with my mom or sister.
What’s the next product you’ll likely buy off your wish list? MAC False Lashes mascara and sitting on the fence wondering if MAC Hot Chocolate from the Tribe Vibe collection will work with someone as cool toned as myself.

Your skin tone/coloring: Porcelain
What was the last lip product you purchased? Urban Decay Mad Hatter – it should be here today 🙂
What was the last product you returned? I don’t even remember, it’s been a few years since I returned something. I should have returned KvD Poe lipstick but I had it too long (it pulls into my lip lines and looks patchy immediately even with primer and liner)
What’s the next product you’ll likely buy off your wish list? MUFE aqua XL pencil in M-92 pastel purple, or maybe Korres after sun cooling gel.

Sephora will still take back Poe for a store credit, or perhaps swap it for a new tube (the one you have may be a dud?). If you have a store nearby, it’s worth a try!

Skin tone: light medium olive
Last lip product purchased: I bought three Urban Decay ones at once since they were on sale: Anarchy, Bad Blood, and F-Bomb.
Last product returned: I rarely return anything thanks to reviews and the ability to swatch in store, so I honestly can’t remember.
Next product likely to purchase from wish list: Nars Dragon Girl is the first that comes to mind!

Skintone/Coloring: Fairly light, very neutral; dark-featured.

Lip Product: Milani Creme Nude & Dulce Caramelo. I’m not a real fan of either; the formula on both is great, but they’re both far too orange on me… I don’t do returns, so if I can’t figure out how to make them work, I’ll just give them to my daughter…

Returned: Like I stated above, I don’t return-unless it’s literally the wrong product, or is an eye product that causes an adverse reaction; samples are available for everything else, or swatching testers, but I won’t use a tester anywhere near my eyes… That said, I was sold a 6-pan blush insert when I asked for a 15-pan eyeshadow insert, but I should have checked before leaving the MAC store… Fortunately, I was planning a next day trip to a place I’d pass another store.

Wishlist: Maybe the KvD Shade+Light quads in Smoke & Plum…? I also want to check out a couple more of the new INGLOT HD Sculpting Powders (I just added 509), but I’m not sure I’ll actually buy any of them. What I’m really holding out for is the new KvD white foundation & concealer, and the upcoming Serpentina palette in July…

Your skin tone/coloring: Very pale/warm toned/ freckles

What was the last lip product you purchased?: By Terry Rouge Terribly in Guilty Nude.

What was the last product you returned?: Marc Jacobs Enamored lip gloss in Pink Flamingo (the wear down became too gritty)

What’s the next product you’ll likely buy off your wish list?: The By Terry was really the only thing on my wish list. Now I’m going to start saving up for the holiday 2016 collections.

Your skin tone/coloring: Deep Dark NW50
What was the last lip product you purchased? Urban Decay Catfight
What was the last product you returned? MAC Reel Sexy. It was too close to Sushi Kiss and I didn’t need both.
What’s the next product you’ll likely buy off your wish list? MAC x Chris Chang Limited Edition Prep and Prime Transparent Finishing Pressed Powder

Your skin tone/coloring: Fair, neutral

What was the last lip product you purchased? Far too many Urban Decay lipsticks; I’ll say Sheer Slowburn because I wore it most recently.

What was the last product you returned? I can’t remember!

What’s the next product you’ll likely buy off your wish list? I’m on a low-buy, but maybe some new eye and face brushes.

Your skin tone/coloring: Fairest neutral. Still probably NW05 or something like that.

What was the last lip product you purchased? Surratt Lipslique in Perfectionniste.

What was the last product you returned? I really don’t know. I don’t tend to return things. :/

What’s the next product you’ll likely buy off your wish list? No idea but I shouldn’t be buying anything anytime soon! Already spent a fortune. o.0

Your skin tone/coloring: Very light, with neutral undertones.
What was the last lip product you purchased? Nyx’s Glide-On Lipliner in Nude Suede Shoes.
What was the last product you returned? I honestly can’t remember! Probably a foundation or concealer that turned out to not be light enough. But I just got the Nyx Foundation Mixer in White, so hopefully that’ll be happening a lot less from now on.
What’s the next product you’ll likely buy off your wish list? Either the new Makeup Geek liner in Plumeria (depends on the review it gets here!) or maybe I’ll finally bite and purchase Anastasia’s Illuminator in Starlight.

I have the same problem with foundations. I just bought The Body Shop Lightning Shade Adjusting Drops and love it! I’ve tried a few other products in the past and this one is by far the best. One drop per pump of foundation does the job for me. About $20 for .5 oz, but it should last a long, long time. It’s an off white and is not drying. Mixes easily. Best purchase I’ve made in a long, long time!!!

Your skin tone/coloring: light and warm
What was the last lip product you purchased? Dior Addict Ultra Gloss in Mirrored
What was the last product you returned? Burberry Lip & Cheek Bloom
What’s the next product you’ll likely buy off your wish list? Not sure! Could be a Clinique Sweet Pot if their customer services gives me a birthday promo code that actually works!

Your skin tone/coloring: Tan/golden

What was the last lip product you purchased?: NYX liner in Soft Beige (I could be wrong about the color name). It’s the only lip product I’ve purchased so far this year!

What was the last product you returned? A Shea Moisture shine and frizz spray that was just too rich for me and made my hair oily and my face break out.

What’s the next product you’ll likely buy off your wish list?: Some Colour Pop items I’ve been eyeing (mostly shadows, but I’ll probably end up breaking my lip no-buy!)

Your skin tone/coloring: Fair, cool
What was the last lip product you purchased? hmmm – probably the new Guerlain LBD lip thingies in Mauve Gloves and Cherry Cape
What was the last product you returned? UD Catfight lipstick
What’s the next product you’ll likely buy off your wish list? A Diamoncel foot file and maybe either MUFE’s newer concealer or the UD Naked Concealer.

My skin tone is light olive, ranging to medium olive in the summer.

The last lipstick I bought was Guerlain Le Petite Robe Noir lippie in Neon Pumps.

I don’t return much but I returned a drug store’s own brand eye shadow palette last fall that irritated my eyes to the point I couldn’t wear it.

Next buy? Lise Watier defining brush, have one already but need another.

Stephanie, how do you like the LPRN lippies? I have Cherry Cape and Mauve Gloves and I find that they barely last any time at all. Both are really pretty and feel very nice but lasting time is nil, pretty much, which was disappointing given the price (I did get them “free” with Shoppers Drug Mart points but still, I was hoping for better).

I have 3 in total. I actually love these as a whole. They feel and smell great, and look good on my lips. I agree that the lasting time is not great, but I like them for work because I don’t have to worry about uneven wear like a ring around my lips, or lipstick all over my face. I too, got mine at Shoppers, one free, and two on senior’s day at 20% off. I’m not really a senior, but over 50 and they oblige me as I’m a god customer. I like them enough to consider another but not at full price.

Your skin tone/coloring: Fair/warm
What was the last lip product you purchased? I got three $11 UD Revolution lipsticks at the same time: Sheer Slowburn, Sheer Streak and Matte Tilt. Summer!
What was the last product you returned? A Maybelline concealer that was the wrong shade.
What’s the next product you’ll likely buy off your wish list? I’ve got a Colourpop order waiting; I really want to try the new eyeshadow Wattles, the brow pencil and the Aquarius lippie stick/pencil.

Skin tone: Medium warm (MAC NC 30 and 37–I wear both, they are interchangeable for me)

Last lip product I purchased: NARS Audacious lipstick in Angela

Last product I returned: La Mer foundation (I would have kept trying to find the right shade but the shade range is seriously too limited)

The next product I am likely to buy from my wish list: Yve St. Laurent Shocking Mascara (unless some limited edition something or other ends up catching my attention)

Your skin tone/coloring: NC15

What was the last lip product you purchased? Two of the new Lancome Juicy Shakers. I am a dork and got really excited about finding in Ulta too XD. Though I went and ordered them off Sephora.com because I prefer them to Ulta…

What was the last product you returned? I don’t think I’ve ever returned a makeup or skincare product. I always swatch things or get samples to test out first.

What’s the next product you’ll likely buy off your wish list? Hopefully the UD Beached Bronzer in “Bronzed”. I finally swatched both them while in Ulta and prefer that one to Sun-Kissed, which is more of a darker, ruddy blush than a bronzer, even for someone as pale as me as it’s really pink in undertone.

I’ve only swatched them thus far (then ordered them online) but they were soft and felt very light but were also decently pigmented for what they are, and the unique scents they all had were cool but not overpowering.

I generally do more shopping online (yaay spine problems!), and Sephora is really good for online shipping and only once did a product come damaged, in which case they sent a new one immediately, whereas I’ve had waaay too many things from Ulta come damaged and they’re not helpful about it. I also prefer more of the brands available at Sephora (like Nars) so end up building more points there even though they don’t amount to much, and for online orders can always find a promo code for a deluxe sample or more, whereas the Ulta point system is still totally confusing to me and I’ve never been able to get anything out of it as a result.

My skin tone is super pale with a bit of rose in it.
The last lip product I purchased was Sephora Ultra-Shine Lip Gel in Tickled Pink.
I don’t remember the last product I returned…
KAT VON D TATTOO LINER!! I WANT IT SO BADLY!!

Your skin tone/coloring: NW13.
What was the last lip product you purchased? NYX Lip Lingerie in the shade Exotic.
What was the last product you returned? We can’t really return stuff we’re not happy with here… 🙁
What’s the next product you’ll likely buy off your wish list? The Urban Decay Alice lipstick tomorrow if I can get it and the MAC Otherearthly highlighter when it becomes available in a few days here. After that I’m going to try very hard to not buy anything till June lol.

Your skin tone/coloring: Light/Neutral
What was the last lip product you purchased? All in one order; Colourpop Tootsi, Pillow talk, She Bad, and I Heart This.
What was the last product you returned? I can’t recall the last item I’ve returned; it hardly ever happens! I think a Chanel lipstick because the cap wouldn’t snap on properly.
What’s the next product you’ll likely buy off your wish list? Some brighter colors from Colourpop. The price point is amazing and if I don’t LOVE the color, it’s only $5 lost.

Your skin tone/coloring: Porcelain, cool undertones

What was the last lip product you purchased? From Future MAC – Mineralize Lipstick in Ionized and Cybernaut and I love them both. Especially love Ionized topped with a shimmery gloss.

What was the last product you returned? Also from Future MAC – Mineralize Skinfinish in Warm Rose as it was literally invisible on my skin. And, I plan to return BECCA’s Shimmering Skin Perfector Luminous Blush in Camellia as it is not “ballerina pink” as described and the color and frost finish aren’t flattering my my skin. Pale girl problems 🙁

What’s the next product you’ll likely buy off your wish list? Another Surratt Beauty Lip Lustre. I’m trying to decide between Nudite and Soigne. I know I’m in the minority, but I love a thick, sticky gloss that hydrates and stays on forever.

The MAC Warm Rose is more of a finishing powder, but it has tiny, tiny glitter particles in it. I’m returning it, too, because I prefer a sheen to glitter particles. In sunlight, I don’t care to see glitter on my face.

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

What was the last lip product you purchased? CoverGirl Katy Perry Katy Kat Matte in Cosmo Kitty and Kitty Purry.

What was the last product you returned? The Katy Perry lipsticks are going back today. They have a strong, horrible perfume smell and taste that do not go away. They’re not really matte. The formula is on the waxy side. Very disappointing!

What’s the next product you’ll likely buy off your wish list? I’m not really sure. Maybe a couple things from MAC x Brooke Candy. I’ve bought so much stuff this last month or so. I might go into low buy for a couple months.

Oh my gosh, I’ve been eyeing Cover Girl Cosmo Kitty, glad I didn’t buy! I can’t stand strong perfume in lipstick, and waxy sounds yucky. It’s too bad, because it’s such a pretty purple

I ordered the Brooke Candy Doo-Wop, Witching Hour, and Till Death Do Us Part. I also ended up getting The Balm Matte-trimony Palette from The Balm’s Flash Sale today. It’s been on my wish list for a long time, and I was waiting for a sale. Can’t beat half price!

Skin tone is fair/medium.
Last lip product: MAC Versicolour Stain in Resilient Rouge. I actually think browner reds look best on me but this was the closest they had in this product. Maybe they’ll expand the color line later, I hope.
Last product I returned was a while back, the Pur shiny eye shadow in the little pot. I was allergic to something in it and was really bummed because it gave my eyes such a pretty, shiny look and the color was something I really thought looked good on me, too.
Next thing I (might) buy is Marc Jacobs lipstick “Miss Scarlett”. The color looked really good on me, but the price has me hesitating.

Marc Jacobs lipsticks are a splurge, but the formula is amazing! If it works for your budget, definitely worth it. I have 2 now that I got on two separate special occasions and I use them loads. But yeah, definitely pricey.

Oh yeah and I almost forgot, I want to see those new NYX Eye Lingerie shadows and hope I can snag a Milani Matte Metallic lip gloss, too.

Your skin tone/coloring: dark deep with red undertones
What was the last lip product you purchased? Grunge by colour pop

What’s the next product you’ll likely buy off your wish list? maybe a tom ford brush

Skin tone/coloring : light/medium neutral undertone currently using Nars sheer glow in Santa Fe.
Last lip products purchased: just got Glossier Coconut Balm Dotcom and Generation G matte lipstick in Jam today
Don’t remember the last product returned but I was disappointed in Colourpop Ultra Satin in spritz, my lips chapped and cracked for days!! Good thing it’s not expensive I can just throw it out. lol
Next product on my wish list is the new Drunk Elephant Lala Retro whipped cream, been loving their skincare and just want to try their new addition 🙂

Your skin tone/coloring: Light
What was the last lip product you purchased? Dolce & Gabbana lipstick in Soiree

-Last product returned: none! Here in Brazil we cannot do that =(
– Next product to buy: I’m eyeing the Meet Matte Trimony palette from The Balm.

Skin Tone/Coloring: Very fair with pink undertones; usually wear Cle de Peau I10 or Armani Maestro#2

Last Lip Product Purchased: Lancome Juicy Shakers and Tom Ford Moisturecore in Ortranto and Mustique

Last Product Returned: Still considering Mustique; it’s beautiful, but it doesn’t do much on my fair complextion, but actual return would be Milk Makeup Balm Tint in Real-ish. Color is lovely, packaging, execution, quality leaves so, so much to be desired. Ugh.

Next Product on Wishlist: Apart from a new CdP eye makeup remover, it would probably be Tom Ford cream blush in Pink Sand or the Illuminating Highlight Pen in Lavender Voile. Though I’m patiently waiting for Memorial weekend when the new Jo Malone store opens in Washington, DC so I can go check out the Rare Teas collection. I by no means need any more perfume, but I’m dying to go smell these, so I may end up with one.

last product returned: NARS All Day Foundation

What was the last lip product you purchased? Anastasia Beverly Hills liquid lipstick in “Sad Girl.” It’s such a beautiful color!
What was the last product you returned? NARS blush in “New Order.” I was hoping for an ethereal pink/lavender highlight, instead I got a glitter bomb. Pretty glitter, but not what I wanted.
What’s the next product you’ll likely buy off your wish list? Hopefully I can get my hands on the UD Alice Palette. I don’t really need new eyeshadow, but I don’t have (most of) those colors in my collection.

The Minnie Mouse Aren’t You Gorgeous handheld mirror

The MAC Chris Chang products (they get released tomorrow)!!!!!

Your skin tone/coloring: Fair, cool leaning to neutral.
What was the last lip product you purchased? A Tarte lip set from QVC UK – Rainforest of the Sea Lipsaver and Lip Drench lipsticks in Beach Bum and Happy.

Your skin tone/coloring: fair warm

What’s the next product you’ll likely buy off your wish list? Marc Jacobs highliner in jazzberry

Last lip product purchased: Clinique’s Peach Pop – a lovely shade of peach/coral to use all year round. Especially when I am wearing blues and greens.
Last Product returned: none – it is not encouraged here in Australia to return makeup items. So you have to purchase carefully.
Next product to purchase: Well, I am still waiting for the bareminerals Soft and Smoky palette to be sold anywhere other than QVC as they don’t ship internationally.

Your skin tone/coloring: light to medium with yellow undertones, dark brown eyes, black hair
What was the last lip product you purchased? Tarte Glitzy Lipsurgence
What was the last product you returned? Rimmel #004 Lasting Finish lipstick. The bullet just straight up dislodged from the container and smushed all over the cap. So bizarre!
What’s the next product you’ll likely buy off your wish list? Probably something boring like L’Oreal True Match powder for touch-ups. I wish it was my first Colour Pop order! But my skin is starting to remember what it turns into during warmer months.

Your skin tone/coloring: Light – between NC 20 and NC 25
What was the last lip product you purchased? Jouer moisturizing lipgloss in shade Mist
What was the last product you returned? Foundation. Tarte by the Sea Light-Medium neutral. Too dark and wrong tones so it turns orange on me.
What’s the next product you’ll likely buy off your wish list? There are a few pieces I would like to procure from upcoming MAC releases. I don’t buy much from MAC at this point, but there is that one purple lippie…

Your skin tone/coloring: Very fair and peachy undertone. Currently using Chosungah 22 foundation and adding NYX white mixer to lighten slightly.
My most recent lipstick purchase was the Rouge Bunny Rouge “Perfume of His Gaze” Sheer Lipstick.
I don’t return very much but I had purchased all of the MAC retro matte liquid lipsticks for myself and my daughter and returned them all. We both hated the formula so much. It wore off in that horrible patchy way and left that gross ring around the inner mouth, yuck is all I can say.
I am not sure about my next purchase. I am torn between wanting the Tom Ford Honeymoon palette (which I have a lot of dupes for but mysteriously still want!) and the Charlotte Tilbury Luxury Face Palette which is getting mixed reviews but I still kind of crave. The only other thing on my wish list is the Natasha Denona Brown/Green palette but I don’t think I will ever purchase and not because of the price but rather because I would like to see it in person first and I doubt that will ever happen.

NW25 until summer

Last weekend, purchased One of the new-ish sephora brand Rouge cream lipsticks. Nice option to all my mattes (it’s got good pigment with some shine). Also rediscovering lipstick queen and its nuanced natural/nude color range.

I don’t return products. Either I buy smart or else I’m pretty lazy.

And on my wish list is a Mia. I’ve got an original clarisonic and it’s start to act up plus I envy Mia’s more compact size and charger. Just started doing research to figure out which I want with what features – and welcome suggestions.

Your skin tone/coloring: NARS Gobi, NC15
What was the last lip product you purchased? UD Revolution lipstick in Naked
What was the last product you returned? Sigh… We cannot return makeup here, unless you can prove 200% that a product actually did you some damage (which is nearly impossible to do) or is outright bad (as in gone off).
What’s the next product you’ll likely buy off your wish list? I’m in the market for a new bronzer to replace my MAC Golden. I love my MUFE Pro Bronze Fusion and will be using it, but I want to have a second one that is more “bronzy”, if that makes sense. If you can suggest smth that is suitable for light skin, readily available and not crazy expensive (i.e. Tom Ford), I would really appreciate your input 🙂

Check out the Armani powder and liquid bronzers; they’re amazing and the only ones I’ve found that work well on fair skin. They gave a broad range of colors, so I’m sure they’ll have what you’re looking for.

Your skin tone/coloring: dark hair and eyes, pale olive
What was the last lip product you purchased? Vanicream Lip protectant SPF 30
What was the last product you returned? Cannot remember…about to return theBalm downboy though, it oxidizes and fades too quickly on me.
What’s the next product you’ll likely buy off your wish list? Cover girl super sizer mascara, elf brush cleaning wipes.

Skintone: Light-to-medium with periodic redness
Last lip product purchased: Tom Ford Rose Soleil & Bobbi Brown Pink Go,d shimmer lipstick (both from the CCO)
Last product returned: Bobbi Brown eyebrow mechanical pencil – waaayy overpriced given other options. Charlotte Tilbury’s eyebrow pencil is my HG (it’s better quality and less expensive than BB’s pencil).
Next purchase off wish list: likely Charlotte Tilbury’s Instant Look in a palette or a Tom Ford patent lip color from the Spring collection.

Your skin tone/colouring: nc30, light-medium warm with slight olive/neutral undertones.
What was the last lip product you purchased: too faced melted fig! Since Tarte’s glossy lip paints won’t be here till at least August and I’ve been obsessing over the colour Fave, wanted something to tide me over. The Sephora 20% off sale here also pushed me to buy it.
What was the last product you returned: none! Our return policy here is very strict.
What’s the next product you’ll likely buy off your wish list: UD’s naked one and done. Can’t wait till we get it here, I’ve been wanting to see if there’s anything better than my Estee Lauder BB cream that I love.

Your skin tone/coloring: light, slightly olive, and cool-toned (color analysis classified me as a Bright Winter)
