Favorite product this month? Tarte Amazonian Clay Blush Palette Color Wheel; Urban Decay Vintage Capsule Vice Lipstick in UV-B.

Most used face/cheek product this month? Face — Nyx Shine Killer (doesn’t kill shine, but still works well as a primer), BareMinerals BareSkin Pure Brightening Serum Foundation, BareMinerals Mineral Veil in Original, and Notoriously Morbid Contour in Necromancy (all used almost daily). Cheek — Urban Decay Afterglow Blush in Rapture.

Your skin tone/coloring: Deep Dark/ NW50
Favorite product this month? Peter Thomas Roth Retinol Fusion PM
Most used face/cheek product this month? Colour Pop Highlighter in Might Be and MAC MSF in Taraji Glow and Highlight the Truth
Most used eye product this month? ABH Modern Renaissance Palette

Medium coolish with fading tan at present. It’s all bout greige. I’m up for any suggestions on powder blush (using bite gelato multistick at present.). Prob will try the mufe dark purple taupe next…. even offbeat suggestions…. Thanks.

Your skin tone/coloring: Porcelain
Favorite product this month? Pretty Zombie Cosmetics Morticia liquid lipstick
Most used face/cheek product this month? ColourPop Teasecake
Most used eye product this month? MAC On the Hunt liquid eye liner.

Your skin tone/coloring: Light/Fair
Favorite product this month? TooFaced Chocolate Bar Palette. It’s my go-to for “glam” looks and I’ve had a couple this month!
Most used face/cheek product this month? Covergirl Classic Color Blush in Soft Mink
Most used eye product this month? Either the Chocolate Bar Palette or my Maybelline Define-A-Lash Volume Mascara (which is discountinued 🙁 )

Your skin tone/coloring: Normally I say pale, warm toned, NC-15ish, but somehow I got a tan. I haven’t even been outside that much-it probably happened while carrying things out to my car. Paired with the fact that I’ve either been wearing no face makeup or tinted moisturizer (working through the samples I have) I honestly don’t know.

Favorite product this month? My Chantecaille Protect the Lions palette. Of course, I don’t know if that counts because I’ve only had it for under a week. I’m totally blanking on what else I’ve used this month though. Oh! I really have been loving my ByTerry Tan and Flash Cruise palette.

Most used face/cheek product this month? If primers count, definitely the bareminerals Prime Time Neutralizing Foundation Primer. I’ve been using it under the tinted moisturizer samples I have, which tend to be too beige and also incapable of covering redness. The primer helps a lot.

Most used eye product this month? Hm. Probably Chanel’s Emerveille? It’s good for an easy eye look.

Your skin tone/coloring: light to medium warm

Favorite product this month? MAC New Crop Eye Shadow

Most used face/cheek product this month? Urban Decay Afterglow Blush in Indecent

Most used eye product this month? MAC Everyone’s Darling Eye Shadow

Your skin tone/coloring: light to medium with yellow undertones, dark brown eyes, black hair
Favorite product this month? BH Cosmetics Carli Bybel palette
Most used face/cheek product this month? Wet n Wild Rose Champagne blush
Most used eye product this month? Elf Mad for Matte palette

Skin tone: medium warm (MAC NC 37 plus because of tan, I was color matched last week at LANCOME in a medium deep shade)

Favorite product this month: without a second thought it is for sure NARS Dual Intensity shadows in Antares, Rigel, and Arcturus. I feel like I can get away with choosing three because I wear them together!

Most used face/cheek product: My new Lorac blushes in Aura and Technicolor. Both are so pretty!

Most used eye product: NARS Dual Intensity shadows in Tarvos and Cressida (I wore a lot of teals and greens and turquoise in the final days of summer).

Your skin tone/coloring: fair, warm, blue eyes, light brown hair with copper highlights

Favorite product this month? Kiehl’s ‘oil free ultra facial’ toner. I’m finding it just right for 1ce/day oil-control use since it’s still humid and warm here.

Most used face/cheek product this month? MAC Studio Waterweight SPF 30 foundation in NC15

Most used eye product this month? tough to pick just one… Lorac bronze eyeliner; MAC Rich Ground eyeliner (the latter because I’ve been traveling a lot and this product wears forever); ABH Tempera as a base eyeshadow (a new technique I’m trying for my deep set eyes; am liking it)

Your skin tone/coloring: nc25-ish
Favorite product this month? Colourpop Smokin’ Whistles
Most used face/cheek product this month? Smokin’ Whistles and theBalm Cindy Loumanizer
Most used eye product this month? Colourpop Nillionare

Your skin tone/coloring: fair, cool
Favorite product this month? Marc Jacobs Blacquer Skinny liner – the really skinny one for tightlining my upper lashes
Most used face/cheek product this month? Face: MAC MSF Natural (I’ve been using it over a moisturizer with SPF just for ease and because our heat wave isn’t done yet); Cheeks: MAC Sweet Sentiment Mineralized Blush
Most used eye product this month? I’m a broken record but, again, it’s Chanel’s Empreinte du Desert, though I’ve been reaching for the Anastasia quad I put together a lot more lately (Smoke is one of the most fabulous colours).

Your skin tone/coloring: Light Olive Level 20ish
Favorite product this month? Chanel Stylo Yeux waterproof in 928 Eros and 929 Agape from the new fall collection. Both of these are total standouts for hazel eyes and much creamier than past iterations. I’m tempted to buy backups…gasp
Most used face/cheek product this month? Face: it’s complicated. Blush: By Terry sun designer palette..but looks like Clinique is going to usurp the coming month.
Most used eye product this month? Just cannot get enough of ABH Buon Fresco as a crease colour and MAC Moleskin. I layer the two

Another big fan of Chanel Eros! I’m thinking of a backup too, but it’s so cray expensive. I’m hoping ColourPop will come out with one for $5.

*Light medium with yellow undertones
**Mix Touche eclat le teint Ysl foundation with Parure de lumiere Guerlain foundation
***The peach blush from Sun Designer palette tan and vibes from By Terry
***Sweat peach eyeshadows palette from Too faced

Favorite product this month? Givenchy Le Rouge Brun Createur #103 (dusty rose). I’m crazy about this oldie but goodie, got it back in rotation, and have not used another lipstick in about a month!

Most used face/cheek product this month? LOVING the Estee Lauder Double Wear Foundation. LOVING. IT.

Most used eye product this month? I seem to be in a recycling mode (see lippie above 🙂 ) . Becca Ombre Rouge palette. This is my second as I went through the entire first one. Really enjoying the tones at the moment, especially for work.

Your skintone/coloring: Medium w/olive undertones MAC NC37-40, deep brunette, teal-green eyes w/gold flecks.

Favorite product this month: I am still surprised at how much I love my ABH Mod Ren palette! Plus, discovering how comfortable and beautiful those UD revolution Lip Glosses are! Despite my whining about my Chanel Rouge Vie being a dupe of MAC VG I, I have gotten SO many compliments whenever I wear it, that I’m including it, too. It’s actually more comfy on than VG I!

Most used face/cheek product this month: WnW Reserve Your Cabana, Clinique Cola Pop, UD Rapture Afterglow Blush and MAC Highlight The Truth.

Favorite product this month? Bite Lavender Jam Lipstick as the fun one, Marc Jacobs Nud(ist) pencil for the bland fave

Most used face/cheek product this month? Beaute Flouron stain (cut with Becca Pearl liquid highlighter which is enough of a daily staple to not count on a monthly best of list)

Most used eye product this month? UD Mushroom 24/7 pencil-great for a simple line or for an easy, one product smoky effect

Light to medium with yellow undertones

This month I’m loving MAC dare you lipstick. Has just enough sheen to make my lips look plump and smooth but not so much that it’s too slippery. Plus it fades leaving a light stain behind.

Most used face/cheek product this month? I’m really loving the combo of Chanel vitalumiere aqua with NARS velvet matte skin tint.

Most used eye product: this pale silvery bronze shadow that came in a Chantecaille quad. It’s got a very fine sheen that isn’t overtly shimmery. I love it as one wash shadow.

Skin tone/coloring: Fair with neutral undertones

Favorite product this month? Pur Minerals eye polish in Cashmere. I’ve been using it as a base with almost every eye look.

Most used face/cheek product this month? Ambient Lighting Blush palette, mostly Luminous Flush and Incandescent Electra.

Must used eye product this month? Marc Jacobs Velvet Noir mascara. I’m not a big high-end mascara user but I might have to repurchase this one!

Skin tone: fair, light porcelain with pink undertones.
Favourite product this month: Re-using my Wet n’ Wild Comfort palette
Most Used face/cheek product: Covergirl Tru Blend foundation. Much better than I originally thought it would be.
Most Used Eye product: It would have to be the taupe shade in the Wet n’ Wild palette -top right hand column. A lovely shade.

Skin tone/coloring: Light medium to medium, cool side of neutral.
Favorite product: Tie. Chantecaille Just Skin Tinted Moisturizer and ByTerry Hyaluronic Powder.
Most Used Face/Cheek product: Champagne Pop Liquid Skin Perfector (very subtle daytime friendly when patted on cheekbones + good shade match for my end of summer color.)
Most Used Eye product: Charlotte Tilbury Eyes to Mesmerize- I lucked out and got them all at 50% off. Great one and done shadow look. I probably used Marie Antoinette most often.

Your skin tone/coloring: Medium-Tan Neutral Tarte Medium Tan Honey
Favorite product this month? Benefit Sun Beam
Most used face/cheek product this month? Clinique Sculpting Contouring palette in defining roses
Most used eye product this month? Bobbi Brown Warm eye palette

Your skin tone/coloring: very fair with cool pink undertones

Favorite product this month? My Tom Ford lip duos for sure. I’ve been getting a lot of wear out of them. Definitely my favorite formula along with the moisturecore lip colors.

Most used face/cheek product this month? The new Cle de Peau luminizer in Almond; switching between using only as a highlight to a light all over wash on my skin.

Most used eye product this month? It’s a draw between my Chantecaille Save the Lions palette and the Tom Ford Runway duo. Both have been in heavy rotation.

Your skin tone/coloring: Fair/cool
Favorite product this month? Kat Von D Everlasting Liquid Lipstick in Bow N Arrow
Most used face/cheek product this month? ABH Contour Kit
Most used eye product this month? Lorac Cool Taupe Eyeshadow/Too Faced Better Than Sex Mascara/Kat Von D Tattoo Liner in Trooper

Your skin tone/coloring: Neutral to warm and medium to tan. Foundations that match me perfectly: By Terry Terrybly Densiliss Serum Foundation in 8.25 Desert Beige and Giorgio Armani Luminous Silk in 6.25. I would say they probably match to Mac NC40 abouts
Favourite product this month? IT Cosmetics your skin but better CC cream in SPF 50+
Most used face/cheek product this month? the above + a forgotten box of Guerlain Meteorites Pearls which I’ve moved to my everyday use section. I just dust it on even if I’m not wearing makeup that day.
Most used eye product this month? UD 24/7 Glide On pencils in various shades depending on mood/clothing. These have been knocking about for a bit too and I’ve reached a point where I don’t love them as much anymore. I feel really bad throwing stuff away (unless it is spoiled) instead these have been prioritised for daily use. Also don’t feel like putting the effort into proper liquid eyeliner lately.

Your skin tone/coloring: light and warm
Favorite product this month? MUFE Ultra HD foundation
Most used face/cheek product this month? Guerlain Terracotta
Most used eye product this month? Bobbi Brown Espresso eyeshadow that I use to tightline.

Your skin tone/coloring: NC 15, NARS SheerGlow in Gobi, pale.
Favorite product this month? Ok, let it be MAC Courting Seduction lipstick. I literally try hard to find any excuse possible to wear it and it is not easy, considering I have about 25 lipsticks. It’s so different and light and opaque, love it.
Most used face/cheek product this month? Hmm, this is the category I have most of my stash in (lipsticks is an obsession at the moment, so it’s not even in contention), so I really make it a point to alternate. MUFE Pro Bronze Fusion in i15 and MAC Warm Soul come to mind, so be it.
Most used eye product this month? MUFE eyeshadow in S560, MAC fluidline in Dipdown I guess and….. yep, it’s MAC Prep + Prime 24-Hour Extend Eye Base again 🙂

Your skin tone/coloring: NC10-ish
Favorite product this month? Mac Cosmo lipstick! I think it may end up being my HG everyday shade.
Most used face/cheek product this month? Shiro White Chocolate Frog highlighter – – all day, everyday.
Most used eye product this month? Kiko Eyeshadow Stick in 25 Light Taupe and CG Clump Crusher WR Mascara in Very Black

Your skin tone/coloring: NW47
Favorite product this month? Mac fix + ( yes i’m late i know)
Most used face/cheek product this month? Bobby brown shimmer brick in bronze
Most used eye product this month? Coco bear eyeshadow by make up geek

Your skin tone/coloring: Fair with olive undertones

Favorite product this month: Laura Mercier lipstick in Spiced Rose, it’s not really a favorite it’s more of an everyday go-to product, very practical and easy

Most used face/cheek product this month: Nars Blush in Lovejoy, I just love how lovely the colour is for fall it might seem a bit intimidating on the pan but it goes on somewhat sheer and you can always build it up for night looks. Also I don’t know why but i just love how brick colours look against my skin whether that’s lipstick blush or eyeshadow I find that it compliments and warms my skin without looking too orange or washing me out like most red-pink products do

Most used eye product this month: Makeup Geek eyeshadow in Preppy, I use it as a base eyeshadow for my crease (blended) then folow with a darker colour (usually MUG Mocha or Nars Bengali) in a more precise manner, Eyeko Sport Waterproof Mascara, with the rain in London and the long hours of everyday makeup wear it’s a lifesaver I don’t think I can ever use another mascara after this

Your skin tone/coloring: fair redhead
Favorite product this month? Hourglass ethereal light
Most used face/cheek product this month? Clinique nude pop
Most used eye product this month? I was on a cream shadow kick, probably Laura Mercier caviar eye stick in sugar frost and my sample of the NudeStix taupe magnetic eye stick. Are they both eye sticks? I’m not sure if that’s what they’re called, heh.

Your skin tone/coloring: light to medium light, yellow/gold

Favorite product this month? an oldie but goody — Rubenesque Paint Pot by MAC; I find it creates a beautiful base layer for a remarkable number of my indies

Most used face/cheek product this month? if we’re not talking about foundation or powder, then it’s Benefit blush in Dallas, which I pair with other blushes

Most used eye product this month? Physician’s Formula Shimmer Strips eyeliner in Nude Eyes (it’s a set of three, and I’ve been using the lightest one compulsively on my lower wetline)
