Skin tone/coloring: Cool porcelain with freckles and reddish brown hair.
Last lipstick I wore: The Bite Beauty Matte Lip Crayon in Glace. I’m trying to use up my old mini since I got a new one in my Sephora b-day gift this year. Luckily it’s a really flattering color on me!
Last eyeliner I used: I…. can’t remember. I haven’t been in the mood to mess around with eyeliner lately.
Last mascara I used up: NYX Worth the Hype, though it wasn’t so much “used up” as “threw out when it hit the 6 month-ish mark.”

Same here on Glacé! I got the mini in my Sephora birthday set, too, and just wore it for the first time. It’s a beautiful shade and I really like the consistency. It kind of reminds me of a super luxurious version of Colourpop’s Lippie Stix.

Also, I’m really loving NYX Worth the Hype. I hope I use it up before I have to toss it, but it’s so inexpensive that it’s not a big deal.

Your skin tone/coloring: NC20
Last lipstick you wore? Currently wearing Lipstick Queen Medieval
Last eyeliner you used? I almost never wear eyeliner so I’m not sure. If I want to line my eyes I usually do it with an angled brush and some eyeshadow.
Last mascara you finished? Oh lord, it was from the drugstore? Blue packaging? Way too springy a brush? Okay I just spent several minutes googling and I can’t find it. I give up.

I started using my NYX Worth the Hype mascara middle-August and mine dried up so fast… I usually use only one mascara and throw it after 3 months mark. But 2 months in and I’ll just toss it as it’s almost to dried out to properly apply. I can’t even remember when this last happened to me. 😆

Side note: For me it was not Worth the Hype (although good mascara for the price point).

Your skin tone/coloring: fair neutral
Last lipstick you wore? Marc Jacobs liquid lip crayon in “Plum N Get It”
Last eyeliner you used? Stila stay all day in “intense black”
Last mascara you finished? Too Faced Better Than Sex

Your skin tone/coloring: Fair/light with neutral undertones
Last lipstick you wore? Mac Viva Glam IV. I have had this one for years and am trying to finish it by year’s end…
Last eyeliner you used? Some random brown eyeliner from an Ipsy bag.
Last mascara you finished? A DS Marc Jacobs Velvet Noir Mascara. My HG!!

Your skin tone/coloring: really light with neutral / slightly yellow undertones (mac nc10)
Last lipstick you wore? Mac Doe liptensity lipstick
Last eyeliner you used? Kat Von D tattoo liner (I’m using mine up before finding an alternative – I think of getting a Clinique one that also has a brush-tip)
Last mascara you finished? La Roche Posay Respectissime waterproof Mascara

I really like their mascara, it’s formulated to be absolutely nickel free and after I’ve had an allergic reaction to a drugstore mascara it’s the only mascara that doesn’t irritate my eyes.
La Roche Posay also do Eyeliners, eyeshadows, lipsticks, and foundations but I have only tried the mascara. The whole range is supposed to be good for people with sensitive skin and allergies.

Not as an actual ingredient but the black iron oxide pigments can be contaminated with trace amounts of nickel. I think that there is a limit to how much nickel can be in cosmetic products, but people with allergies can still react to it. La Roche Posay are the only brand I know of that advertises its mascara as nickel-free and hypoallergenic.

ThaTaylaa on YouTube recommends the Physicians Formula black liquid liner, says it’s pretty much dead on the same as Trooper.

That’s great, but sadly there is no way I can access Physician’s Formular here in Germany. I’ve read somewhere that NYX do a similar liner, so maybe i’ll check that out.

Physicians Formula Liquid Liner, Kat Von D Trooper, Fenti Flyliner and Stila Stay All Day are basically the same thing from my point of (re)view. 😀 Absolutely no difference on how easy they are to apply, on pigmentation and staying power (and I use hooded oily lids).
If I managed to get a mini liner as a Sephora perk, great! I grab one; if not, I’ll just order the Physicians Formula from Amazon.

Physicians Formula and Kat Von D have a brush tip. The Fenti lyner is theoretically a `super-flex felt tip`, but from my point of view is very close to a brush tip as well. Stila is a felt tip, but it’s easy to work with and I feel that the application is quite close to a brush (I have most times troubles with felt tip eyeliners).
But in the end this is personal opinions, if you can get to a Sephora and at least swatch the 3 `high-end` ones you would get more sense if they work for you. I usually swatch eyeliners on the back of my hand to see how much they `bleed` into skin lines and if the tip is easy to work with.

Your skin tone/coloring: NW45-47

Last mascara you finished? probably a mini from MUFE (the “smoky” one) or Dior.

Your skin tone/coloring: fair/ neutral-warm

Last lipstick you wore? Wet n Wild Mochalicious. I love to blot this lipstick on over lip balm. It gives me 90’s vibes on my pale skin without making me look dead.

Last eyeliner you used? It was a ColourPop liner that irritated my eyes. It’s a gorgeous purple/brown shades that made my eyes goop up

Last mascara you finished: Tarte Lights Camera Lashes

Last lipstick you wore? Tarte Birthday Suit liquid lipstick. This is not bad and not too drying if my lips are not chapped. I wouldn’t use any liquid lip on my chapped lips though.
Last eyeliner you used? Kiss Me Heroine Make liquid eyeliner. Not the best in terms of pigmentation. No smudging under the eyes but fade quite a bit. Honestly, no eyeliner stands up to my oily monolids so this is quite expected.

Skin tone: fair cool toned (Boots No 7 in Calico*), blue eyes, dark brown hair
Last lipstick used: Boots No 7 in Honey Bloom (an excellent nude for me, sort of beige pinky brown). Before that (as I recognise that’s not a well known shade) Urban Decay Vice in Venom.
Last eyeliner: upper lash line, I’ve been playing with the very dark shades from my palettes that look rubbish on my skin as eyeshadow, but before that, Urban Decay 24/7 pencil in Corrupt. Waterline: Maybelline Unstoppable in Espresso (applied very faintly, just adds a little definition)
Last mascara finished: Maybelline Full and Soft

* I’m not sure where/ how to flag this (or if it’s that important given I gather the brand is less well known in the States), but every so often I’m asked to update my skin tone based on my foundation in my vanity. I can’t remember exactly what it says, but it’s something like medium-deep and neutral, which is definitely wrong (I’m of English/ Irish heritage and my skin tone reflects that, skin usually burns and occasionally tans, silver suits me better/ clearly blue wrist veins, and this foundation shade is bang on perfect for me). Thought it worth pointing out, in any case.

Your skin tone/coloring: NC25
Last lipstick you wore? Glossier’s Gen G in Crush
Last eyeliner you used? Stila Stay All Day Liquid Liner in Espresso (or whatever the dark brown is called…)

Lt to med P side: just reordered the ordinary P 2 and 2.1 serum, as Brandon finally imploded. And posted, of course. Sad all around. Lips: Liquid Courage, CP. Haven’t been using liner much, eyes intermittently inflamed, don’t want to wreck them. Plus some are still missing, though I have not hunted. I think the last one was Sephora strawberry macaroon. Mascara: It Superhero. Great at the beginning, rapid crash, then chosen to be thrown out when eyes improved. I guess I get a new mini from Ulta; somebody would like it.
