Last lipstick you wore? Colourpop Glossy Lip Stain in Tinkerbell.

Last product you hit pan on? A pale shell pink with faint gold shimmer eyeshadow called Venus from a discontinued brand. I found it stashed away in my closet and thought I may as well use it up!

Last product you repurchased? Zoeva Graphic/Limitless Joy eyeliner pencils. I was sad when Rock N Roll Bride, Taupe and Glance were discontinued because they were hands down my absolute favourites of all time (so soft!) but when I saw the new ones, I got them all – then I repurchased a medium metallic bronze brown called Devotion.

😪😪😪 and nude reflection and mute and opulence and all the rest. Loved them. Linda Hallberg has nice ones, too, in a grand array of colors…unless they pulled a Zoeva, too, lol.

Last lipstick you wore? Too Faced Sex on the Peach

Last product you hit pan on? Estée Lauder Double Wear Mattifying Powder

Last product you repurchased? Last product I’ve repurchased was probably my Cera Ve Cleanser. I cannot think of a makeup item I’ve repurchased in years. I’m just working through what I have at this point!

Your skin tone/coloring: Light-medium with warm yellow undertone, dark brown hair and eyes.

Last lipstick you wore? MAC Yash, it’s neutral enough to wear it sometimes as lip `balm` during my walk breaks

Last product you hit pan on? The last one is the MAC Studio Fix Powder Plus (in NC20), but I go through face powder very easily (and finished in the meantime). But 1-2 months ago I hit pan on my MAC Wedge eyeshadow.

Last product you repurchased? My purchases are mainly re-purchases. 😀
Skincare wise, my last Paula’s Choice order included several repurchases, favorites I can’t be without (Clinical 1% Retinol Treatment, 5% Benzoyl Peroxide, Purifying Clay Mask, etc.).
Make-up wise, I repurchased the MAC Eye Brows Big Boost Fibre Gel (in Stylized), an eyeshadow refills for MAC Omega and Satin Taupe.

Your skin tone/coloring: NC15, fair & ivory with some freckles, brown eyes, if I’m to be honest hair is an undefined brown-ish shade(s) at the moment (but it’ll be different on saturday! yeeeey!).

Last lipstick you wore? Lâncome L’Absolu Rouge in #361 Effortless Chic.

Last product you hit pan on? Bobbi Brown Concealer (only used half the powder & as per usual I feel a little ripped off! I wish they’d lose the powder again! The only thing that takes the sting out of it is that I got a cheaper one from a newly opened Estée Lauder outlet shop and it sells MAC too – in the grand scheme of things, the makeup Gods have actually been good to me!).

Last product you repurchased? Skincare: Hada Labo Rohto Hadalabo Gokujun Hyaluronic Hydrating Lotion & Makeup: Mac Ruby Woo (got the mini this time though). But what I really wish I could answer is a Cleansing Oil from Japan as my last one’s running out (and the icing on the cake would be if I could say I picked it off the shelf myself rather than getting it online)!

Your skin tone/colouring: Porcelain, with pink undertones

Last lipstick you wore? Maybelline’s Spice for Me – which I have on today.

Last product you hit pan on? The Balm’s Hot Mama blush

Last product you repurchased? L’Oreal’s True Match foundation in porcelain rose.

Your skin tone/coloring: pale, cool
Last lipstick you wore? Surprisingly, MAC Full Fuchsia
Last product you hit pan on? a pressed powder foundation – either Lise Watier, IT or Pur (I’m not sure and I reach for them interchangeably and I think I’ve hit pan on at least 2 of them)
Last product you repurchased? Skincare – Clarins Super Restorative Eye Cream (or whatever the name for it is now…something with “Lift” in the name, I think); makeup – quelle surprise….MAC Craving lipstick.

Your skin tone/coloring: Pale yellowish, copper-blonde hair, blue eyes

Last lipstick you wore? L’Oreal Glossy Fawn (bought based on this blog’s rec and I still love it!)

Last product you hit pan on? MAC Studio Fix powder… took forever too, I just use it for touchups.

Last product you repurchased? I don’t remember the full name, but MyChelle makes a skincare spray that has hyaluronic acid and niacinamide that my skin really loves. I use it before sunscreen in the morning and most nights before the rest of my skincare routine as well. Also repurchased ELF’s setting spray as none of the other options at CVS really seemed very appealing to me.

Last lipstick you wore? Today was Haus Labs Power Move lip crayon. Most recent bullet was KVD Lolita II on Sunday, and most recent liquid was Revlon Temptation Ultra HD Matte.
Last product you hit pan on? ColourPop Thnks fr th Mmrs Super Shock blush. There’s still quite a bit left in the original pot, but there’s a spot in the middle where I can see the bottom of the pot. I bought a replacement pot from Ulta and I plan to hang onto and reuse the original Call It Whatever collection box with the new pot when the original pot runs out.
Last product you repurchased? Fenty Pro Filt’r 110 Soft Matte foundation.

Your skin tone/coloring: Above, grey-green eyes and dark brown hair
Last lipstick you wore? Maybelline Pink for Me
Last product you hit pan on? CT Airbrush Flawless Finish setting powder, there’s some left and I will use as much of it as I can, it’s quite expensive. I will not repurchase, that good it was not.
Last product you repurchased? MAC Studio Fix Powder Plus Foundation in NW 13. It’s not arrived yet, but it is on it’s way. I think it’s the third repurchase, I like it, it’s easy to use when I’m in a hurry and it works with my skin.

Lipstick: MAC coffee and cigs. Not the most appropriate, but better than pink eye. Panned: this one shocked me, as it’s the only ND I have. Mini Retro, two pans, omg. Repurchase: Purito Centella Unscented Serum.
