Your skin tone/coloring: Under my name (blue-green eyes, dark hair)

Three products you couldn’t put down this month? Purple everything, ie; Viseart Amethyst Theory, Coy, and CP Ur A Cutie, oh and Sephora Cream Lip Stain in Endless Purple! KVD Tattoo Liner. And, of course, lip BALM!

Favorite cheek products this month? UD Noho, MAC Double Gleam and Le Leyenda, DoC Miramé, and almost every shade in both Hourglass Ghost Quad and Dior Backstage Glitz quad.

Favorite eye products this month? Viseart Amethyst and Coy, CP UR A QT, PML Divine Rose II, and various MAC Pro Pan neutral singles like: Tete A Teint, Saddle, Arena, Kid, Haux, Folie. KVD Trooper, Smashbox Fishnet Always On Eye Pencil. Also, I am now a believer in L’Oreal Lash Paradise WP mascara!

Mel Thompson had her one and done eyeshadow video this week, she mentioned Tete A Front, Kid and Haux… It reminded me how much I miss an eyeshadow look with just Haux, I need to add it back again in my collection.

Your skin tone/coloring: pale, cool
Three products you couldn’t put down this month? Elizabeth Arden Lip Fix (and I’m still wearing lipstick, despite masks – I’m not going down without a fight), Dior Jungle 5-pan, The Ordinary Glycolic Toner
Favorite cheek products this month? MAC Sweet Sentiment Mineralize Blush or their Glow Play blush in Rosy Does It.
Favorite eye products this month? The creamy, dreamy, all-together-wonderful Dior Jungle palette. I think it’s the best e/s purchase or the one I’ve enjoyed the most in quite a while.

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

Three products you couldn’t put down this month? I’m in that loop of using the same things, the MAC Prolongwear Concealer, MAC Blotting Powder and MAC Veluxe Eyebrow Pencil (especially since I got my first eyebrow threading since March)

Favorite cheek products this month? I mostly used MAC Harmony, an old time favorite, but cheek products don’t get me too excited these days

Favorite eye products this month? I played around with most of my eyeshadows, I like them all in the end… but the standout favorite is always the eye primer, I can’t believe how much I still like the ABH eye primer even after all this time.

I’m always amazed at success w/abh primer. For Me: It didn’t set, even very thinly applied, the shadow flew off, I started to sweat, and i was left with melting milk of magnesia dripping from my yes. Three times, same drill. Something in it does not agree w/me. Pretty funny, except when i was away from home, and wiping off the MOM off my entire face.

I am also amazed at success with other products people usually love. 😀 But it shows how different our preferences and techniques are.

I do apply a tiny amount (I agree that overdoing it basically covers the eyelid in milk of magnesia) on naked lids. But it dries fast, sets the eyeshadow in place all day long, no creasing or transfer, all colors are more vivid. It’s so good, I repurchased it even if my first tube oozed like crazy and I was wasting product (they seem to have fixed the issue).
I even dab a little on the bridge of my nose, to prevent eyeglasses moving around foundation.

That’s a great trick with the eye glasses. I like the abh primer also but trying to use up the stuff I have first before purchasing any new eye primer. My Mac paint pot is on like 4 years? I can see the bottom. Lol. I heard hourglass one is good too?

Your skin tone/coloring: above with freckles, green/gray/blue eyes, warm brown hair.

Three products you couldn’t put down this month? Missha M Perfect Cover BB Cream, Paula’s Choice Super Light Daily Wrinkle Defense Sunscreen (mixed with the BB cream), Em Cosmetics Infinite Lip Clouds in Rose Nude and Fades Clementine

Favorite cheek products this month? Pixi Sheer Cheek Gel in Flushed, Hourglass Ambient Lighting Blush in Mood Exposure, Stuka Heaven’s Hue Highlight in Kitten… I use all three together and it is the prettiest mauvey/berry cheek.

Favorite eye products this month? My Clionadh shadows, specifically Kiln (it is so magical); PMGL MTHRSHP Mega Celestial Divinity palette (omg, I didn’t know I could love a palette this much, I’m SO happy I purchased it, it is truly divine); and Natasha Denona Metropolis palette (truly the perfect fall palette).

Your skin tone/colouring: Light medium, yellow undertones. Dark brown hair & eyes.

Three products you couldn’t put down this month? Perricone MD Face Firming & Finishing moisturiser, Laniege Lip Sleeping Mask in Grapefruit and Mecca To Save Face 50+ SPF superscreen… I went to the beach for a week holiday and the weather was glorious!

Favourite cheek products this month? Lorac LUX Diamond Golden Hour highlighter palette, By Beauty Bay blush in Blossom and Tarte Blush Authority Cheek Wardrobe Trio.

Favourite eye products this month? Essence Lash Princess waterproof mascara, Morphe 35XO Natural Flirt palette, Linda Hallberg Flash crayon in Whipple. I thought the Colourpop Sandstone palette was pretty great too.

Skin tone/coloring – light end of light, cool undertones, I think I have olive overtones though
Products I couldn’t put down –
1) Too Faced Pumpkin Spice eyeshadow palette – I’ve really been enjoying this even more than I thought I would. A few of the shimmers, though gorgeous, are very dry and require a wet brush, but the mattes are vibrant and the color story is fairly cohesive). I’ve been supplementing with yellow golds or other shades, but I haven’t been this attached to a palette for this long in a while.
2) Clinique High Impact Mascara – I guess I got a sample at some point but this has been a really nice, lengthening, non-clumpy mascara. I *whispers* like this better than Better Than Sex (duh, it was only the most overrated product ever) and even L’Oreal Lash Paradise.
3) Lorac Eye Pencil – also a sample size. Just a really smooth, dark black to pop on the lower lash line. Great for making the eyes smolder for mask makeup.
Favorite cheek products – CoverFX blush duo in Spiced Cinnamon
Favorite eye products – Well, I guess I covered the eye products I couldn’t put down haha.

I lovvve the Clinique High Impact mascara. It’s one of the few mascaras where I’ve used multiple tubes. Btw I’m not a fan of either the BTS or the Lash Paradise😉

Light/Med dry skin, green eyes and blonde hair (bleached!)
Three products you couldn’t put down this month? My Andalou Naturals Cannacell Dreamy Night Cream, the Maybelline Lifter Gloss in Topaz and VOIR A Walk in the Sun: Luxury Hair Oil (It smells dreamy and is helping my dry hair not look so straw like with the weather change!)
Favorite cheek products this month? OG Benefit Benetint! It gives me a lovely, fresh check that lasts all day even with my mask wearing!
Favorite eye products this month? I have been having SO much fun playing with the ELF bite sized pallete’s!

Favorite eye products this month? Juvia’s Place eyeshadows, even though they are now on my no-buy list. I will enjoy what I have, but I probably won’t buy any more from them for a while. It doesn’t seem like they’ve done much to fix their image after the JS debacle from last year.
