Your skin tone/coloring: Under my name, green eyes, s&p hair

Three products you couldn’t put down this month?
• Estée Lauder Knockout Nude
• Laura Mercier Caviar Sticks (Amethyst and Burnished Bronze)
• Clinique Cheek Pop (Berry and Peach)

Favorite lip product this month?
• Estée Lauder Knockout Nude (love, love, love!)

Favorite eyeshadow palette this month?
A tie between two ColourPop palettes:
• Smoke Show
• Lilac You A Lot

Your skin tone/coloring: fair, cool
Three products you couldn’t put down this month? Becca Foxglove blush, Australian Gold tinted sunscreen, Too Faced Peach Blur powder
Favorite lip product this month? MAC Full Fuchsia and Elizabeth Arden lip primer
Favorite eyeshadow palette this month? Natasha Denona Mini Gold palette (for something so small and seemingly so “green”, it is really versatile)

What I like about the AG mineral sunscreen is that it can give that coveted lit from within glow, if used as a separate layer, under TM or foundation. Layered works better than mix in. Who knew a sunscreen could do that? As a stand alone, it’s too rich for my baseline oily dehydrated skin.

I like it because I dislike piling layers of product on my face – serum, moisturizer, sunscreen, foundation, etc. etc. Is it any wonder some people basically have to sand blast their faces to get everything off at day’s end? In summer, when it’s warm and humid where I am, the sunscreen is all I need – protection plus a bit of colour. On sunnier winter days, I use it overtop my Embryolisse or Astral cream but, again, minimal layers.

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 (I’m trying to finish it off!), Ulta Beauty Cream Blush in Sunrise, Tom Ford Lip Color in Casablanca (I have a mini that I’m trying to finish up; it’s my favorite lipstick of all time, and I’m ready to break into my full size back up).

Favorite lip product this month? Flower Beauty Lipsticks and Bite Beauty Lipsticks. And the Laneige Lip Sleeping Mask; I’m so close to finishing up my pot! That little thing has lasted me SO long! And I’ve used it almost every night for over 2 years!

Favorite eyeshadow palette this month? Colourpop x KathleenLights So Jaded palette. It really is a great versatile palette. Want to play with it all the time. My favorite shade is Smoky Quartz, which is funny because it’s one of the most basic shades in such a colorful palette, but it’s really special.

Skin coloring- dark light / light medium
3 products I couldn’t put down – Mac hyper real glow palette in shimmy peach, cover fx monochromatic duos in soft peach , makeup revolution powder in peach.
Fave lip product- the new dior flower lip oils . I love them ! I’m not a big matte finish girl because they dry you out . These look matte but they don’t dry you out at all. Definitely buying more
Fave eyeshadow palette- not really big into eyeshadow, the one I have and use is the Pat McGrath mini sublime palette. I can’t really afford her other palettes so I love that she gave us something affordable

Your skin tone/coloring: very fair, very neutral. around N/NC10 or so

Three products you couldn’t put down this month? My new Koyudo cat paw kabuki brush. It is the cutest thing I have ever seen as well as being awesome for finishing powder. Hourglass Mood Light (applied with my new Koyudo brush, of course). Lastly, I never seem to put down Natasha Denona’s Biba palette. It’s not exactly exciting, but it is just so versatile and seems to complement all my other palettes (I don’t really have many singles).

Favorite lip product this month? Natasha Denona Sava. It goes with everything.

Favorite eyeshadow palette this month? It’s a cross between two I picked up from the beautylish event. The first is a self made palette from Surratt’s new Hologram collection. I got both dark matter and light matter along with the blue and green top coats. It seems like there are endless combinations. I also tried the Jeffree Starr Blue Blood palette. It is way, way out of my comfort zone, but I have been having so much fun playing with it!

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

Three products you couldn’t put down this month? The three products I always wear: concealer, mascara, brow gel 😆 I basically use all my make-up (aka `can’t put it down`), but a couple of favorites
*MAC Haux (either on it’s own washed all over the lid, either in the crease blended as a base for other colors, I’m into mauves and greys right now)
*ABH Dipbrow Gel (I actually like this product better now that it’s nearly finishing; at first it was too gloopy, pigmented and a lot of product came out)
*Estee Lauder Double Wear Matte Powder Foundation (I use it as a setting powder, and I actually don’t find it that mattifying; a great product still)

Favorite lip product this month? MAC Photo… having a freshly opened lipstick reminded me how much I like the MAC Satin formula. It’s surprisingly flattering on me, and instead of warm and orange tones on me it looks actually quite neutral/cool with a brown-greyish vibe.

Favorite eyeshadow palette this month? My one and only custom made palette with 15 MAC eyeshadows so easy to pick when you have just one.

Your skin tone/coloring: Medium/light tan, warm/yellow-toned
Three products you couldn’t put down this month? JOAH Truly Yours Dark Circle Concealer, Huda Beauty Nude Light Obsessions palette, MAC Face and Body
Favorite lip product this month? Bite Beauty Salted Caramel gloss
Favorite eyeshadow palette this month? Gonna have to be the Huda Beauty Nude Light Obsessions palette. This little palette is so versatile and super pretty.

3 products I couldn’t put down ?
Nars Satin lip pencil in “Marjela “ I’m a sucker for any deep rich warm lip color this time of year.
Shisedo green Kajal eye crayon .
2 of Make Up Forever original round single shadows ( remember those? Sigh…) in a Rich deep copper and a light golden orange .
They were so good they practically blend themselves and on me they look better as the day wears on .

Your skin tone/coloring: Under my name.
Three products you couldn’t put down this month? Dior blush shade 999, Dior Forever Skin Glow Foundation and Buxom Waterproof Mascara.
Favorite lip product this month? This is always a hard question to answer since I have so many lipsticks and tend to change them at least daily, if not a couple of times a day. About the only lipsticks I have used more than just once or twice this month, would be Charlotte Tilbury Walk of Shame.
Favorite eyeshadow palette this month? I have been using the Give Me Glow Vintage Rose palette a lot this month both as a stand alone palette and as a pairing palette. The shades are all one’s that I love and it performs well. The shimmer’s are pretty but I prefer them foiled with MAC Fix + but that isn’t a problem for me. This is my first purchase from Give Me Glow Cosmetics so I am interested in trying some of their other products. The colour story isn’t exactly a fall/winter palette but I don’t adhere strictly to that anyway.

Three products you couldn’t put down this month?
J. One’s Jelly Pack White – Not new but started using it again. Love this for all day wear (even thru workout). Now super sad Sephora stopped carrying this and hoping some western company picks it back up.

Sonia K’s (well the one you can buy at Target) blender sponge. I have been cycling through sponges lately since mine is at the end of it’s life and I need to go get another bc nothing else is quite as easy to work with for me. Linda Halbergs though is close, but a bit small for larger areas.

Sonia G’s (the beautylish Sonia) Builder 3. I finally caught this one in stock last month or the month before… and man was it worth the wait. Loving it for applying lid colors.

And I’d like to give an honorable mention to the Sydney Grace purple toned highlighter and blush from the cool toned grab bag… I have been a bit purple obsessed lately and these are perfect without being actually PURPLE.

Favorite lip product this month?
Nabla’s foxy lady topped with Laneige’s lip glowy balm so it isn’t so matte. It’s a gorgeous shade of purple that is more fashion/goth than costumey.

Oooh and Fresh lipbalm in Lemon Sugar has been a staple as well. I am almost out and need more of the delicious smell and texture.

Favorite eyeshadow palette this month?
Nabla’s cutie or Colourpop’s Lilac You A lot. I’ve been pulling a lot from those two with different looks. The Nabla cutie’s mattes are just perfect for quick professional looks, I love the depth and finish they have. The Lilac palette has been satisfying my need for cool-toned purples lately.

Your skin tone/coloring: light, MAC NC 15-20, med brown hair and eyes, oily skin

Three products you couldn’t put down this month? ABH Modern Renaissance, Melt Gemini, MAC ED blush in Hushed Tone

Three products you couldn’t put down this month? Moisturizer, my makeup sponge and mascara! I’ve had and used sponges now and then but I’ve only just really UNDERSTOOD what they can do for your base application. Amazing! And it’s not even a fancy one, just a 3-euro H&M sponge.

Favorite lip product this month? Lip. Balm. Winter came in one go – we got 20 cm of snow over just a couple of days and today has been a crisp -14 to -20 degrees Celsius. My lips are parched!

Favorite eyeshadow palette this month? Haven’t really worn any, decluttered a lot of them and the one I bought (PMG Platinum Bronze) is still on the way here!

I don’t have many products though. I’ve been working on using up the blush sample from Everyday Minerals. It’s a soft neutral pink.
I’ve been really enjoying the No. 7 nude lip pencil that I bought a few years ago. Wish I start using it earlier.
Also I’ve been using the ColourPop Chasing Rainbows very consistently 🙂

Skintone warm neutral

Am panning NARS Killing Me Softly palette and have been using NARS Decatur this month. Love Decatur and Gilda. Third item would be my Bobbi Brown Shimmerbrick in Bronze which I’m now using as a loose powder.

Laura Geller Melon Infusion lipgloss. Love Melon coloured lipgloss since my first one which was Clinique Melon Sky. Unfortunately, I’ve had to throw this away after removing the stopper because it got so messy.

Colourpop Sweet Talk.
