Favorite red lipstick? Urban Decay Revolution Lipstick in Mrs. Mia Wallace. Hands down.
Favorite gold eyeshadow? I don’t really wear gold a lot, but I really like MAC’s Old Gold pigment.
Favorite silver eyeshadow? Not a big fan, either haha. The closest I get is mauve or taupe silvers like LORAC Chrome, UD Mushroom, etc.

Favorite red lipstick? Dior Rouge in 752 Rouge Favori. A very formal red to me.
Favorite gold eyeshadow? Can’t remember any… I don’t look good with them. It makes my eyes looks puffy and it’s hard to wear them down even by adding some layers, unless I use some matte brown. I prefer cool-toned eyeshadows overall.
Favorite silver eyeshadow?Ahhhh that’s another shade that I don’t normally use. I only have two from the Kat Von D Monarch eye palette, Delaney and Telepathy. Otherwise, shimmery pink and beige work generally well on me tho.

Ooo yay I can actually keep it kind of concise-ish (for me…) this time!
-Skin Tone: Fairest porcelain, neutral undertone, cool features (platinum hair, blue/green eyes).
-Favorite Red Lipstick: My HG is Guerlain Rouge G in Gigolo (though I love all my Rouge G reds, this is my most-loved). My favorite classic non-Guerlain reds are Marc Jacobs Neo-Noir (gorgeous smoky cherry), Tom Ford Black Orchid (my precious!), NARS Future Red (best red-orange. Audacious Carmen is a wonderful dupe with more gloss), and a mix of Besame Cherry Red and Besame Red.
-Favorite Gold Eye Shadow: Hands down Sugarpill Goldilux. I love many golds but this is the be-all, end-all, multipurpose gold.
-Favorite Silver Eye Shadow: Harder for me. Urban Decay S&M and a few other UD silvers in single-form come to mind. Tiara from SP is also a good one but a bit too intense for me since I, like others, prefer patinated or off-colored silvers with interesting base or undertone colors.

Favorite red lipstick?: Don’t really have one, wait does MAC Burgundy lip liner count?
Favorite gold eyeshadow?: Dior Gold Touch, discontinued 🙁
Favorite silver eyeshadow?: Don’t have one, don’t think I’ve ever worn silver shadow. Closest would be a grey shadow and that’d be either UD’s Pistol or Gunmetal

Mariella Avatar

Skin tone/colouring: fair, cool-toned
Favourite red lipstick: I have a few – Clarins Red Wine (discontinued) and Redwood (probably also discontinued); Bite Zin and Vigne; MAC Dubonnet.
Favourite gold eyeshadow: no question it has to be NARS Kauai (the left side) followed by UD Half Baked
Favourite silver eyeshadow: I also don’t think I have one and those that come closest are probably KvD Delaney, TheBalm Insane Jane (though it’s really more taupe than silver) and MAC Dalliance (not sure if it really counts as “silver”)

Your skin tone/coloring: Light olive
Favorite red lipstick?: There’s a special spot in my heart for Avon Colordisiac in Red Hot Lips! It’s the first red I’ve ever worn, and I went through 7 tubes of it – it was the perfect everyday-goes-with-everything red to me!!
Favorite gold eyeshadow?: L’Oréal Infallible Goldmine. Such a gorgeous shade of light gold!
Favorite silver eyeshadow?: the silver shade in the Magic Voyage by Lancome palette, it’s a duty free exclusive – and it’s an absolute dream. The shade is the top right in the compact.

Coloring: Snow White (character)
Favorite Red Lipstick: Currently Silk Naturals Crimson. It’s a deep blue-based red in a rip-your-enemey’s-throats-out kind of way. Currently I need Bite’s Scarlet like air, it’s a deep, dark, all-will-love-me-and-dispair red.
Favorite Gold Eyeshadow: Shiro Genius Billionaire Playboy Philanthropist. It’s not my goldest-gold, but it has some lovely peachy orangeness to it and no harsh tones at all.
Favorite Silver: Shiro King Under The Mountain. It’s sparkly and smokey and has a lot of dimension.

Favorite red lipstick? I have a soft spot for Estee Lauder Rich Red, but Lancome l’Absolu Rouge in #132 (I think) is pretty awesome.

Favorite gold eyeshadow? Probably Urban Decay Half Baked, although Sleek has some nice ones!

Favorite red lipstick? I have a lot of red lipsticks, drugstore and high-end, which I love. But if I had to pick just one, it would be Revlon’s Fifth Ave. Red. It’s so wearable, because it’s not too bright. It’s perfect for day or night.

Favorite gold eyeshadow? N/A I never wear gold makeup

Favorite silver eyeshadow? I haven’t worn silver in years, but when I used to, there was a shade in the Tarte True Blood palette, which I loved.

Favorite red lipstick? RiRi Woo for me! Drying, but doesn’t budge!
Favorite gold eyeshadow? Tarina Tarantino Taurella from the Floriculture palette – but I just ordered MUG’s Bleached Blonde & I’m excited to see how that turns out! 😀
Favorite silver eyeshadow? I only have a few, so probably either the Marc Jacobs Beauty silver from the Parisienne palette (#3) or Too Faced Jailbird – extremely pigmented!

Coloring: porcelain/very cool undertones
Favorite red: angel red by Clinique. GREAT shade that is definitely red, but has a nice muted softness to it. It also is very creamy & fades evenly…I HATE when dark lipstick leaves a ring as it fades! For red gloss, I live buxom lip cream in kir royal…slightly brownish plummy red.
Favorite gold shadow: gold looks horrible on me, so I don’t have one!
Favorite silver: ALL OF THEM. I tried to quit silver shadow when I turned 30…then 35….but it’s my absolute favorite color shadow. I’ve quit quitting! My 2 faves are UD strip (still have a spare left!) & loreal infallible in liquid diamond, although it isn’t exactly silver…leans lavender on me, but still in the silver family, I think…

Favourite gold eyeshadow: Oh man, this is like asking me to pick a favourite child… MAC Woodwinked which is an orangey gold on me, UD Suspect, theBalm Mary Lou-Manizer. And I still think I’m ignoring favourites.
Favourite silver eyeshadow: I don’t really wear silver eyeshadow so I’ll just pick the only one I occasionally wear which is UD Pistol.

Favorite Red Lipstick: Currently it is UD Mrs. Mia Wallace. Oxblood reds are my favorite reds. Mrs. Wallace and I hang out at work and play!

Favorite gold eye shadow: Currently it is the Bobbi Brown Copper Diamond shimmer brick used as eye shadow.

Favorite silver eye shadow: I’m a golden chocolate child and silver has always been problematic. For now, my favorite is Smut by Mac. Smut isn’t a true silver, but charcoals work for me. Smut is beautiful.

Favorite red lipstick? Impossible to choose!! At the moment I really love NARS Jeanne, but I also love NARS Fire Down Below, MAC Ruby Woo and MAC Rocker.

Favorite gold eyeshadow? OCC Cruising (loose colour concentrate). Sugarpill Goldilux is awesome too. Also UD Maui Wowie if it weren’t for the damn glitter!

Favorite silver eyeshadow? Not a huge fan of silver eyeshadow, but I guess UD Strip is my favourite of those I have.

◾Favorite red lipstick? Revlon Colorburst Matte in Standout for daytime, and Revlon lipstick in Black Cherry for fanciness.

◾Favorite silver eyeshadow? Looks terrible on me.
