■Blush at the top of your wish list? None, I’m a blush addict and I have too many as is.

Skintone – currently in my winter color Nc20

Blush – Benefits Rocketeur

Your skin tone/coloring: fair with neutral undertones
Lipstick at the top of your wish list? Buxom full bodied lipstick in Menace
Eyeshadow at the top of your wish list? Marc Jacob beauty palette in The Starlet
Blush at the top of your wish list? Marc Jacob beauty blush in Outspoken

I absolutely adore dark vampy lips on fair skin. I personally prefer fair skin to a tan and dark lips makes me look even fairer 🙂 But thanks for the tips for the stain 🙂

Your skin tone/coloring: Fair with neutral undertones
Lipstick at the top of your wish list? Dior Diorific Lipstick in Minuit
Eyeshadow at the top of your wish list? LORAC Unzipped palette
Blush at the top of your wish list? Tarte Amazonian Clay Blush in Dollface

SKIN TONE/COLORING: light with olive/warm undertone
LIPSTICK AT THE TOP OF MY WISH LIST: i’ll take a rouge d’armani anyway…the color doesn’t matter, but maybe 401 or 402. 602 would be nice as well.
EYESHADOW AT THE TOP OF MY WISH LIST: I wish i had gotten guerlain turandot (sp???) last fall, but i got liu instead. i will probably never be able to find it. for something i can get…one of shiseido’s trios. they feel great, i just haven’t bitten the bullet yet. or maybe some makeup geek shades.
BLUSH AT THE TOP OF MY WISH LIST: something dark and plummy, but i don’t know if i could pull it off.

Your skin tone/coloring: NW10/15
Lipstick at the top of your wish list? Guerlain Gigolo
Eyeshadow at the top of your wish list? Rouge Bunny Rouge Delicate Hummingbird
Blush at the top of your wish list? NARS Sex Appeal

Your skin tone/coloring: nc/nw 10, very fair neutral
Lipstick at the top of your wish list? tom ford cherry lush
Eyeshadow at the top of your wish list? urban decay naked 3 palette
Blush at the top of your wish list? chanel accent

Skintone: Beyond Fair with cool undertones

Wishlist Lipstick/s: Kanebo Sensai The Lipstick in 09 Tsuyabeni ($55, ugh). It’s a gorgeous pinky-red. Also, Tom Ford (thinking Spanish Pink, but there are so many that are just gorgeous)

Wishlist Eyeshadow/s: UD Naked3, Tom Ford In the Pink, Chanel Topkapi (which is several years old, but the same texture of last season’s Harmonie du Soir, which is perfection)

Wishlist Blush: Trying to nail down the best Tom Ford shade for me. “Best” meaning a versatile shade I will reach for enough to justify the price. I am also searching for a perfect pinky-nude that will not lean too brown. Trish McEvoy used to make a shade named Whisper that was perfect. Lancome Miel Glace is perfect, but I’m struggling with the amount of shimmer. Any ideas, anyone?

I love this survey! Can’t wait to read what everyone has their eye on.

NARS Douceur has become my HG blush. It’s not overly shimmery, and it doesn’t emphasize pores. If you don’t mind a cream blush, MAC Brit Wit might be something worth looking into.

I have had Douceur in my shopping cart so many times, but never actually bought it. I have Madly, but it pulls very muddy on me. Thanks so much for the recommendations!

Your skin tone/coloring: Light, yellow undertone
Lipstick at the top of your wish list? More YSL Rouge Shines. I got one and loved it. Would also love to try Tom Ford.
Eyeshadow at the top of your wish list? Tom Ford She Wolf and a whole bunch of Macs – Cranberry, Patina, Deep Truth, Print….the list goes on.
Blush at the top of your wish list? Nothing in particular but I heard Tarte amazonian clay is great and would love to try it. Also, blushes that look good with red lipstick. Also Nars multiple in Maui. Ok, I guess I have a list after all 🙂

Skin Tone: Snow White. Dark hair, blue eyes, red cheeks and pale skin.

Lipstick: Ah man, I have at least half a dozen stuffed into a for-my-stocking box including a bunch of partial OCC lip tars from RetroWombat, two Color Sensationals, and Lipstick Queen Red Sinner. Left on my wish is definitely a few more Inglots. I have 49 in the freedom system and I adore it. I want to fill out a palette! It’s so hard to find swatches though (hint, hint pretty please)

Eyeshadow: I’m feeling the need for green. I want one of Inglot’s rich matte greens, and definitely want to hit up Shiro and Darling Girl for some of their complex tones.

Blush: My cheeks are naturally pretty rosy straight from my eyes down to my chin. I’m thinking of getting some green primer or a heavier concealer to wipe it all out so I can wear blush once in a while. I’m really attracted to peachy tones since my cheeks are naturally berry toned.

Your skin tone/coloring: neutral, light-medium

Lipstick at the top of your wish list? Burberry oxblood no. 214. Great fall lipstick. Love it.
Eyeshadow at the top of your wish list? Tom Ford Beauty Eye Color Quad Cognac SableSable. Rich and pigmented colors you can wear wet or dry. Great for travel and perfect for everyday wear. The one palette if only I can have one palette.

Blush at the top of your wish list? Sisley-Paris L’Orchidee Rose Blush CompactCompact. You must check this out. So pretty. So so pretty.

Skin tone: light/warm

Lipstick: it was Urban Decay Bang but I ordered it today. Now it’s Givenchy Grenat Initie
Eyeshadow: Estée Lauder shadow paint in Halo
Blush: Chanel cream blush in Presage

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

Lipstick: I’ve decided not to buy any lipstick until 01/01/2015; I have more than I can possibly ever use, and nothing has stood out to me lately…

Eyeshadow: UD Naked 3; NARS Mississippi Mermaid, Rage, Bad Behaviour (possibly Wishful Thinking).

Blush: This is a product I’m extremely picky about, and the range I go for is quite minimal. I feel I currently have several that are HG for what my needs are, so I don’t really have anything in mind. However, NARS Multiple in Maldives is on my next haul list, so if that counts…

Lipstick at the top of my wishlist: Illamasqua’s ESP. (I love purples!! I would not say no to OCC’s Hoochie and/or Belladona lip tar either!)

Eyeshadow at the top of my wishlist: It is not an eyeshadow but a palette. Sleek’s “Sunset” has been on my wishlist for a couple of summers now but I have been procrastinating. It is a summer palette, in my opinion, but the coppers, tangerines and golds in there are amazing for blue-eyed girls like me. 😉

Blush at the top of my wishlist: I have loved NARS’ Taj Mahal for a long time now and almost was on the verge of getting it but I held myself back. It needs a light hand as I am light-skinned but it is oh so gorgeous and would make my eyes pop.

Eyeshadow on my wish list: Naked 2 or maybe Vice 2 or Naked 3. I’m all over the place lol

Blush on my wish list: Hands down Chanel Fantastic cream blush. I grabbed Presage during the release but I’ve been lusting for Fantastic. It’s so beautiful!
