Most used face/cheek product this month? Tarte Amazonian Clay Blush in Paaarty and Laura Geller Baked Highligher Duo in French Vanilla/Portofino.

Most used eye product this month? Natasha Denona Chroma Crystal Topcoats. The grey/brown and peach shades are STUNNING. I want them all.

I have just looked up the Natasha Denona Chroma Crystal Topcoats and they are just stunningly beautiful shades. I love the grey/brown shade too, but all of them are too beautiful for words. No wonder you want them all!

Your skin tone/coloring: Medium w/ olive undertones MAC NC37, Lancôme Teint Idole Foundation N360, Fenty Profilt’r Foundation 290 or 260, deep brunette, blue-green eyes w/ gold flecks.

Favorite product this month? Natasha Denona Lila Palette!

Most used face/cheek product this month? Probably a tie between UD Rapture/ Nars Goulue/ MAC Highlight The Truth. All 3 are in steady rotation, so I couldn’t say which one got used most. Oh! And CP Here Kitty, Kitty Highlighter, too! So, that makes 4 constantly used products of late.

Most used eye product this month? Natasha Denona Lila Palette strikes again! This has become a fast favorite for me. I can do a very bright purple eye, a smoky taupey plum eye, a brighter plum eye, a gold and copper eye, and smoky neutral matte eye….this is a workhorse palette for green and hazel eyes peeps! Plus anyone who really loves these types of shades all in one handy place!

One of my favorite new products this month has helped warm up my skin! It is Hylamide Glow Booster from Deciem (umbrella brand). I apply it with a brush as part of my morning and evening skin care…just a thin layer on my face and neck. It’s definitely given my skin a warm, slight tan. My husband said I definitely had a healthier look to my skin.

As far as face makeup, I’ve been trying to switch it up and use different products. Two that are new for me this month are samples of NARS Radiant Creamy Concealer, and Urband Decay Naked Skin Concealer. I ended up ordering the latter during the 25% off Black Friday special, because it works nicely with my every day light to medium Foundation converage (usually Naked Skin Foundation). I am tempted to get Radiant Creamy as well, but they are both pretty pricey concealers to have!

For eyes this month, I’ve also been rotating through some singles and palettes. I’ve enjoyed revisiting the neutrals in the UD Gwen Stefani palette. I have also used my trusty MUG shadows often, and Kay von D Metal Matte (I use the mattes far more than the metal crush shadows. Bone is a favorite!).

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

Favorite product this month? I’ve been giving my NARS Unfiltered II palette a lot of love lately.

Most used face/cheek product this month? Laura Geller Baked Gelato Swirl illuminator in Gilded Honey – perfect for the holiday season!

Most used eye product this month? Chichi Aphrodite Goddess eyeshadow palette – with 54 beautiful shades it’s been hard to put down.

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

Favorite product this month? Urban Decay Heavy Metals Palette

Most used face/cheek product this month? NARS Blissful

Most used eye product this month? UD Heavy Metals Palette; ABH Modern Renaissance Palette; UD 24/7 Glide-On Eye Pencil in Perversion; UD Primer Potion in Enigma.

Rachel, “Enigma” isn’t available in Canada (at least not yet, not through Sephora, so far as I can see). How does it compare to the original or to the Sin version (I really like the “old” Sin – they seem to have 2 now and I don’t know the difference between those either) for shadows like MAC Tempting….it makes those sorts of colours really reach their full potential. I’m curious about “Enigma” now.

Thanks, Rachel. I’ve also got the “old” Sin (it’s in that Genie bottle everyone hated) and when it vanished and was replaced by “Original Sin” or “First Sin” or something like that, I was confused. I like the shimmery nature of Sin (the old one I have) for shadows that need that sort of help (Nars Kalahari is but one example) and Eden is a good colour for me when I want something not shimmery that can colour correct my lids. I think if Enigma is darner than Sin, it might not be for me after all.

Warm medium skin nc25 ish, Favorite product this month is lilah b. Lip and cheek tint in Real. This is also my favorite cheek/face product because its quick like you would expect a cream product to be but it’s long lasting for my oily skin. Mac laying low paint pot on eyelids and Nars Galapagos smudge underneath the lower lash line smoked out.

Your skin tone/coloring: fair, warm ~NC-10; blue eyes; brown hair w/copper highlights

Favorite product this month? NARS Risky Business gloss, a nice fall color

Most used face/cheek product this month? Armani Luminous Silk foundation — I think 3 light warm but can’t quite tell on the package this sample came in. On me this wears well and is just the right amount of coverage. I’ll definitely get a full-sized once I’m through the sample.

Most used eye product this month? adding some from Too Faced Peachy Mattes to my every day neutrals basics — I am enjoying the touch of peach color to lighten up my look.

Favorite product: My Chosungah 22 foundation. Probably will be my favorite until I use it up!! I also have to mention my Nabla Dreamy palette which has been my most used palette. Loving the shades.

Favorite face and cheek product: I have to go with Nars Sin. I just can’t stop using it. I also love Blissful which is what I have been wearing when not wearing Sin. I know they are very similar but just enough different that I can tell and prefer the Blissful blush when not wanting anything too deep.

Favorite eye product: Above Nabla palette. Just got my two Dior palettes in so expect those to be my favorites for next week/month/year maybe. I picked up the Holiday Ruby palette and Sienna Embrace which is probably better for fall but I can make it work for winter and who follows those rules anyway, LOL.
