Your skin tone/coloring: Light neutral skin tone, green eyes, s&p hair

Three products you couldn’t put down this month? MAC Love Me Lipstick in Laissez Faire, Laura Mercier Caviar Stick in Amethyst, MAC Mineralize Blush in Sweet Enough

Favorite lip product this month? MAC Love Me Lipsticks (I know, I sound like a broken record)

Favorite eyeshadow palette this month? I’ve mostly been using LM Caviar Sticks all month, but my favorite look with a palette this month was with Colourpop Fame.

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

Three products you couldn’t put down this month? Ulta cream blush in Sunrise, BareMinerals Bounce and Blur Blush in Mauve Sunrise, Hourglass Scattered Light Eyeshadow in Smoke.

Favorite lip product this month? Tom Ford Lip Color in Casablanca and MAC Cremesheen in Creme in Your Coffee

Favorite eyeshadow palette this month? Lorac Pro Palette 4 and any of my Kaleidos Makeup 6-pan palettes, but especially the shimmers in those palettes… they’re so sparkly and beautiful!!

I love the Kaleidos palettes and like both the matte and shimmer formula’s. I have been eyeing the Teal/Turquoise palette but haven’t pulled the trigger yet. I had to get the Glow Cosmetics Vintage Rose palette before another Kaleidos palette but they are nice.

Your skin tone/coloring: Under my name! (blue-green eyes)

Three products you couldn’t put down this month? Having found my perfect combo for a foundation match by using 1 pump Fenty Hydrating Foundation 270 with 1½ pumps Lancome Teint Idole in N360, this would be #1. ABH x Jackie Aina palette ties with UD Naked Honey for #2 & 3.

Favorite lip product this month? Getting into my more autumnal shades this past week. So, shades like UD Amulet, MAC VG I and Paramount are now in steady rotation. So is Nars Sheena! Sheena may be the most used, possibly. But I’m not sure.

Favorite eyeshadow palette this month? A clear tie! I’ve been hitting UD Naked Honey and ABH x Jackie Aina near constantly since purchasing both roughly a few weeks apart. Both do wonderful things for bringing out my eye color in different ways. ABH x Jackie Aina if I want to emphasize the greener tones, UD Naked Honey if I feel like boosting the bluer tones for a very distinct turquoise blue!

I am sure the Naked Honey looks phenomenal on you, Nancy. I have been thinking about getting it for my daughter for Christmas but she has been talking about buying it so if she hasn’t done so by the first part of December I will pick it up. I think she might be planning on getting it during the next Sephora sale. Like you, she wears those shades so well and there are several pretty unique shades.

Your skin tone/coloring: Fair/light neutral
Three products you couldn’t put down this month? MAC Coffee & Cigs lipstick, Lime Crime Peach Hair color conditioner (this works really, really well to refresh color fading), MAC Fix+
Favorite lip product this month? MAC Coffee & Cigs, lovely formula & unique color
Favorite eyeshadow palette this month? I made a quad of a few ABH eyeshadows with Birkin, Hot Chocolate, Dusty Rose & Legend. Perfect everyday colors for the fall!

Your skin tone/coloring: fair, cool
Three products you couldn’t put down this month? Australian Gold tinted sunscreen; Becca Foxglove blush, Nars Mulholland Drive liner
Favorite lip product this month? MAC Craving
Favorite eyeshadow palette this month? Smashbox Minimalist

The Australian Gold in the untinted formula works so well for me and almost acts like a primer. I can actually get away with wearing it on it’s own and it just adds a nice pore blurring effect and although there is a slight white cast, it actually matches my skin tone!!

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

Three products you couldn’t put down this month? Embryolisse Creme Lait, Ofra Rodeo Drive highlighter and my Foreo Play Plus!

Favorite lip product this month? Bite Beauty Pink Salt – literally goes with everything.

Favorite eyeshadow palette this month? SG Autumn Reign.

They’re both lovely! hehe
I rediscovered my Embryolisse as I decluttered a drawer last weekend. It’s so great as a moisturizer and primer/base. I was thinking it would be so nice to know what other multi-use products people enjoy.

Your skin tone/coloring: Under my name; magenta/red hair; hazel/green eyes.

This has been a busy month and I actually haven’t been wearing makeup a lot. When I have, it’s often been applied the go in my car. I have several beautiful palettes I bought in September and haven’t worn yet. I’m hoping to remedy that in October, and be really inspired by fall and Halloween.

Three products you couldn’t put down this month? Viseart Petit Pro 2 Palette, e.l.f. Blush in Gotta Glow (trying to use up my last pan), and Volition Strawberry-C Serum.

Favorite lip product this month? ABH Matte Lipstick in Dead Roses and Black Moon Cosmetics Liquid to Matte Lipstick in Nightmare

Favorite eyeshadow palette this month? SugarPill Fun Size, Viseart Petit Pro 2, ABH x Jackie Aina, and BH Cosmetics Carli Bybel Deluxe Palette.

Your skin tone/coloring: Under my name.

Three products you couldn’t put down this month?
MAC Shape and Shade Brow Tint in shade Fling, Dior Blush in 999, Dior Forever Glow Foundation in 2N and Charlotte Tilbury Matte Revolution Lipstick in Walk of Shame

Favorite lip product this month? Charlotte Tilbury Walk of Shame Matte Revolution lipstick and Iconic Nude Lip Pencil plus my usual Nuxe Lip Balm

Favorite eyeshadow palette this month? If I go by most used it would be the Pony Glam Palette since I use it almost everyday either for the brow bone shade or the transition shade as it has both a warm and cool toned shade that is light enough to work in transition for me. It also has a couple of deeper shades for darkening the outer V. So it is rather like a work horse for me but as far as fun palettes to pair with that I am still loving the Melt Impulsive palette. It is also a nice palette for transitioning into fall as it has some really nice fall shades.

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? Milani Baked Blush in Petal Primavera, Essence Lash Princess (Green) and Stila Shimmer and Glow in Jezebel

Favorite lip product this month? Shisedo Color Gel Lip Balm in Juniper

Favorite eyeshadow palette this month? Melt Gemini

Your skin tone/coloring: under my name and hazel eyes, sandy brown hair

Three products you couldn’t put down this month? MAC Love Me Lipstick in Laissez Faire, Charlotte Tillbury Pillow Talk lipstick and gloss

Favorite lip product this month? It’s a toss up between MAC Love Me Lipstick in Laissez Faire or Charlotte Tillbury Pillow talk lipstick

Favorite eyeshadow palette this month?
I have been addicted to the ABH x Jackie Aina the last month, particularly the shade Sponsored, (my favourite go to is Ginger, Sponsored, Lituation and Credit, I have worn that look so much this month,) but my ND Metropolis arrived a few days ago and It has all the glittery appeal of being new, so has put the other on the sideline for the moment.

Am panning my Bobbi Brown Shimmerbrick in Bronze, NARS Killing Me Softly palette and MAC lipgloss called On the Line so these haven’t been put down. Shimmerbrick has massive pan in it and I’m scraping product from the side of the gloss.

Favourite lip product is not the one above. Have also been wearing Bare Minerals Love lipstick. Love this formula.

Favourite eyeshadow palette is Colourpop Sweet Talk.

Your skin tone/coloring: under my name 🙂

Three products you couldn’t put down this month?
Honestly I use the same things everyday and only ever change up eyeshadow palettes, so nothing new to report lol.

Favorite lip product this month?
Nudestix gel colour in Tay Tay (I can appreciate the name too!)

Favorite eyeshadow palette this month?

3 products: Suqqu lip liner shade 2, Viseart Sultry Muse as accessory palette, Lord Jones CBD oil

E/s palette: tough question, I rotate a lot – PMG platinum bronze (my GOAT, I have to limit myself to using it only 1-2x/month otherwise I’d never use anything else)
