LE HGs MAC Rubia lipstick and ostentatious fluidline. Desperately looking for dupes. πŸ™

I’m an NW15, i have raven coloured hair (so, very very dark brown) and light blue eyes. I love using MAC powerpoint in Permaplum to make my eyes pop. Must be something about it, since i always get compliments when wearing it πŸ™‚ I love using a little flush of MAC Tippy Blush on the cheeks, to add some colour to my pale complexion. And Dior Addict in Beige Dessous is my HG nude lipstick, topped with TLC in Fuschia Fix to get that sexy, rosy pout.

I’m cool toned fair skinned. I have dark blond hair and olive green eyes.

Skincare: Aquaphor ointment!!!! That stuff conditions my eyelids, lashes, and lips so well. I love my Neutrogena Healthy Defense Moisturizer

Foundation: Laura Mericer Oil Free Tinted Moisturizer is amazing

Eyes: Stila Eyeshadow in Kitten, MAC eye kohl in Tarnish

Cheeks: Nars Oasis blush

Lips: L’Oreal Lipstick in Pink Lady, Aquaphor as a night treatment. Burt’s Bee’s lip shimmers, C.O Bigelow tinted lip balm and Rose Salve.

I’ve got fair skin and hazel-green eyes. I could wear any makeup but I wear contact lenses and it’s pretty difficult to find the right product. I’d rather use a great nail polish, put some blush and some mascara πŸ™‚
My fav products: OPI nail polish in any dark shade, Cargo SupersEyes Mascara and Benefit Blush

I’m tanned(asian, mac face and body foundation C4, studio fix nc43), black hair, black eyes.
I couldn’t, really COULDN’T live without my mac studio finish concealors in nc30 and nw30 (I mix the two together,lol)
Any lip balm!!(mac skin salve at the moment), fashin mews(or myth), blacktrack fluidline, smoky lash and bare mineral’s faux tan!!! πŸ˜€

I’m the same color type and also love snob lipstick. and orpheus Khol from mac. When wearing foundation for work or event I also need the primer form mac. and blotting papers from Johnson

I’m medium-brown skinned with brown eyes & jet black hair. My HG’s are HIP eyeliner (the 1 that comes in the pot) in black & MAC dazzleglass in Baby Sparks.

The HG products I always fall back on;

* Maybelline – Define-A-Lash
* L’Oreal Blush Delice – Old Rose
* The Body Shop – e/s in #29 Pink
* Clinique Buttershine – Baby Baby
* MAC – Creme Cup lipstick
* MAC – Viva Glam V lipglass

I’m a NC50, with dark brown eyes, and black hair. Loreal Voluminous Carbon Black is my HG mascara. My HG eyeshadow is Urban Decay’s Honey. It is the perfect gold, because it doesn’t look ashy against my skin tone. Another gold I love is Mac’s Melon pigment. My HG red lipstick is Mac’s Ruby Woo. Any red with a strong blue undertone always looks great on me. My HG blush is Nars Exhibit A. I wear it when I wear Ruby Woo. I know there are supposed to be rules about wearing red blush with red lipstick, but if you blend out Exhibit when wearing Ruby Woo, they don’t clash at all. I still don’t have an HG lipgloss/lipglass, so I can’t wait to see what everyone else writes. Also, at the moment I don’t wear neutral lipsticks or lipglosses, because they always look ashy on me. I guess I have to keep searching.

I have no idea about my skintone, but I’m fair to medium skinned, with dark brown hair and dark brown eyes. My HG products are Mac MSFN in Medium, Guerlain Le 2 mascara in black, Urban Decay 24/7 eyeliner in Zero and Mac brow set in Show Off. I don’t really have a HG blush, eyeshadows or lipsticks/lipglosses as I have many and like varying them, but I guess Stereo Rose MSF as blush and Pleasureflush MSF as highlighter are pretty hard to beat, and I really like Avon’s 24K Gold lipstick in Natural Gold which is a gorgeous nude pink shade.

I am a neutral, light-medium, with green eyes and whatever the hair color of the week is. This week it’s blond and red! My HG products are Gentle Mineralize Blush, Feline eye kohl, CG Lash Blast mascara, and any shade of tinted lip conditioner!!

RCMA Foundation
Cinema Secrets Concealer Palette
Stila Kajal eyeliner in Onyx
MAC Carbon Eyeshadow
MAC Brave New Bronze Lipstick

NW25, Asian, deep brown hair and dark brown/black eyes. my HGs are Dior’s Coral Riviera blush, Benefit’s Big Beautiful Eyes Palette, Canmake Cover & Stretch Concealer UV in shade #2 (covers dark circles reaaaally well and is a japanese drugstore product)

I can’t live without:
Too Face Shadow Insurance
Blushes: MAC On a Mission, X-Rocks and NARS Crazed
MSF: Porcelain Pink or Cheeky Bronze
Lips and Eyes: I love pretty much anything MAC, NARS or Dior
Mascara: Shisedo primer and Maybelline define a lash

Eyes: DiorShow mascara, Circa Plum pigment
Primer Potion!!
Cheeks: Elizabeth Arden blush is Star
MSF: Petticoat
Highlighter: Bobbi brown shimmer bricks
Lips: Fresh Sugar lip treatment for night and Syrup lipstick for day

My #1 HG item: Clinique Pore Minimizer Instant Perfector. It’s just $17.50. It leaves my skin with a matte finish but, my natural skintone. I use a very small amount for my forehead and chin. It’s silky and lightweight and, most importantly, can survive disgustingly hot and humid NJ shore summers. Doesn’t even need a powder over it.
Mascara (tied): Diorshow Iconic Mascara, Covergirl Lash Blast
Lipstick: MAC Craving
Blush: Smashbox Blushing Rose
Bronzer: MAC Blunt (I use it more for contouring)
Liner: MAC Fluidline Blacktrack
Shadow: I use mostly MAC shadowws but, if I’m in a rush – Smashbox Waterproof Shadowliners. I have a range of colors. I can use them as a base to powder shadows or use them my themselves for opaque coverage.

The one tool that I’ve pushed on all my friends and my mom: the throw-away mascara wand from Sephora. In a rush, I can use these wands instead of an eyelash curler (apply mascara, wait a few seconds, then gently push up on the lashes with the throwaway wand) and can seperate lashes jammed together when I screw up my mascara. I ALWAYS make sure I have a wand with me when I go away.

I’m medium neutral toned (about an NW25/30), with dark cherry hair (dyed) and honey brown eyes. Some of my HG’s are
– MUFE HD foundation in 118
– Nars Deep Throat blush
– MAC Blankety lipstick
– MAC Painterly p/p
– MAC Ruby Woo lipstick
– Lancome Hypnose mascara

I’m an NW-20 with dark bown hair and green-blue-grey eyes.

I discovered Skinfinishes earlier this year, and OMG I’m in love. I use medium-light, but if I get it again, I’ll probably get medium. Also, I love using ANY purples on my eyes, it makes them look so green!

Medium-light, golden olive. Dark eyes, dark hair. I’ve been told I’m neutral-cool and neutral-warm. So I say neutral.


Dior High Shine Sheer lipsticks
MUFE Fascinating lipgloss #9, #15
Shu Uemura blushes in the “amber” range
Awake Stardon e/s in Jasmine for browbone (discontinued last month I think)
Shiseido Rosewood lip liner
Shiseido Perfect Rouge l/s PK 303
Nars Babydoll lip lacquer

I’m NC 43-45 with Brown eyes, light brown hair.
My HG’s are as follows:

Covergirl: Exach Lash (nothing curls like this mascara)
MAC Lip moisturizing treatment ( I use the Soothing Beige color)
MAC Buzz Lip gloss (too bad it was LE)
Clinique 7 day rinse facial exfoliator
OPI sweetheart nail polish, and Catherine the Grape
Target and/or walmart brand facial makeup remover wipes (cheap and effective)
MAC Bronze and Tempting es
MAC lip liner in Mahogany

You know, dang it, I still don’t think I have any HG products. I’ve only been really into makeup for about 9 months, so I am still figuring things out, and my preferences change all the time! That said, a few items are getting more consistent.

I’m light-med warm-toned (NC25, 118 in MUFE HD) with not-too-dark brown eyes, black-brown hair, and straight-up black brows and lashes. These days, my dream products are
MAC Golden Nectar Highlight powder (bronzer/contour)
MAC Springsheen blush
MAC lipsticks in Brave New Bronze and Spiceflower
Urban Decay 24/7 liners in bright colors
CoverGirl LashBlast Length mascara
Stila Smudgepot in Cobalt
MAC Painterly paint pot
MAC Brun shadow (for brows)

Still trying to find my HG concealer most desperately. I mostly use Studio Finish right now but it’s not quite perfect, too dry, not long-lasting. I have wrinkles/fine lines under my eyes (I’m only 23! UGH) and very dark pigmentation (not from puffiness or lack of sleep) due to my Middle Eastern genes. Also playing around with foundations a lot lately but still not sure it’s something I want to use a lot…

Very fair, neutral skin; blue-green eyes; honey blonde hair

Nars Blush in Deep Throat
Bobbi Brown Lip Gloss in Pink Beige
Prestige My Biggest Lashes Mascara in Black
MAC Prep+Prime SPF 50
L’Oreal HIP Shadow Duo in Sassy (taupe shade only)

I’m a redhead with blue eyes and very fair, warm toned skin. It’s tough to find products that are light enough to look natural and go well with red hair. A lot of browns can look too ashy and harsh.

Holy grails:

Prescriptives Virtual Skin πŸ™
MAC Fluidline in Rich Ground
Max Factor 2000 Calorie Mascara in Auburn
MAC Auburn Brow Shader
MUFE Contour/Highlighter duo in the lightest shade
MAC Shroom for a go-to highlighter
OPI La Pazitively Hot nailpolish, the perfect hot pink

Other than those, I mix it up, mostly using MAC although I have some NARS and Benefit blushes I like a lot.

I’m MUFE HD 115 (around NW15-20), medium brown hair, brown eyes

MUFE foundation
MAC Most Popular lipstick (hello kitty)
MAC Shore Leave eyeshadow (Naughty Nauticals)
Benefit High Beam
Tarte Cheek Stain in Flush and True Love
My new love: MUFE Cake Liner (only at MUFE stores, not Sephora)

I’m NC40, so medium olive toned and dark brown hair with cool blonde highlights. Naturally my hair is black, but my cousin loves top lay with my hair, so it gets blonder in summer, then darker in winter.

My HG’s:
MAC Studio Sculpt Foundation, NC40
MAC Kohl Power Eye Liner, Feline
MAC Fluidline, Blacktrack
MAC Mineralize Blush, Warm Soul
MAC Eyeshadows in Blanc Type, Soft Brown, Satin Taupe and Signed, Sealed.

I’ve occasionally been told I have warm skin despite being able to wear a limited amount of warm colours whether it be in makeup or clothes. That said, I can wear the majority of cool colours but REALLY cool colours can look garish on me.

-MAC 239 eye brush
-Too faced pink leopard face bronzer

I’m quite pale (NC15 I think, but sometimes lighter in winter), medium brown hair and dark brown eyes. Even though I prefer the NC shade I’m more on the neutral/warm side.

I don’t have an HG foundation yet but I just use powder so I’m still experimenting with different brands,etc. Some things I definitely love are:

-UDPP (I never do my makeup without this stuff)

I’m warm toned with medium-light dark. (NC42 to be more specific) I have dark brown eyes with dark brown hair.
My HG products so far are…

Im still looking for my HG foundation, concealer for my dark circles, and primer.

PS: Can anybody recommend a good eye concealer that doesnt get into lines and doesn’t crease? (I have tried MAC’s Studio Finish Concealer and IT SUCKS!!!!)

Try maybelline mineral powder concealer for under eyes. I found the same problem with fine line under the eyes and gently patting this under the eyes did a very good job of brightening without making me look wrinkly.

Im a NC 42 as well and like you had no success with the MAC concealers. I just tried Bobbi Brown honey concealer and it works great.

Neutrogena SkinID cream cleanser, acne treatment pads, and treatment lotion. (Great line, like Proactiv- but individualized) Also, for eye cream, Patricia Wexler De-Puff Eye Cream with MMPi. Bodywash is Dove Nutrium Moisture (They finally figured out how to put the Dove Bar in liquid form!)
