I am so sorry I missed out on Jealousy Wakes. I was able to get another shadow from that Bloggers release but missed out on JW TWICE!

For me, it’s a toss up amongst (channeling Rachel R here) MAC Craving lipstick; Chanel Tisse Rivoli or Tisse Gabrielle quad, MAC All That Glitters shadow and Dior Rosy Glow Awakening Blush (the original shade). Sorry but that’s as much as I can narrow it down. Oh – and I have to add on Australian Gold tinted facial sunscreen. It’s been a game changer and has knocked LRP’s Anthelios liquid right out of my bathroom and into DH’s!

MAC Up for Everything Lash Mascara. I have never in my 48 years had a mascara that would hold a curl on my eyelashes. NEVER. This does. It’s amazing. It’s also a pain in the behind to get off… I use olive oil and that works and doesn’t irritate my eyes. I am stockpiling it just in case MAC discontinues it.

Random product but Rimmel Exaggerates eyes emerald sparkle eye pencil (something like that) it’s been in my collection for absolutely ever and when I don’t know what to do I just smudge a bit of that on and it looks good with my eyes & complexion. I wish it didn’t have the little silver sparkle flakes though!

I still have my Jealousy Wakes! Obviously can’t use it anymore lol but it’s truly a near and dear collectible.

Revlon Lip Butters were the last products made for me ;(

Urban Decay’s W.O.S.! RIP. It was the perfect “my lid but better” shade that brightened my lid but looked natural. I know it should be so dupe-able and I have a lot of similar shades, but something about the undertones on my skin—I can’t replicate it!

I also love Clinique’s Cheek Pop in Black Honey. Hard to overdo it, a beautiful flush on me, looks so natural in a “was out walking in the fall in a sweater but maybe needed a scarf” kind of way. If only I could find a lippie that did the same!

In s/c, virtually all CosRx and Purito have me channeled pretty well. I need Anti-inflammatory s/c. FAB eye duty triple remedy, Paula long name TM, and KohGenDo took a s***ton of research, but finally I have some HG base products. The color cosmetic that came to mind was Aziza clinging vine mascara, dark green, but nowhere near black. End of the 60s…(yes, for real. You WILL remember your youth makeup when you become a dinosaur. You have less and you choose more carefully. Green mascara has been my thing for 50 years!)….but it was me to a T. Current most ‘me’ palette is probably LC Venus Immortalis, mostly grays. Single ‘me’ color? Definitely old Mufe dark purple taupe.

Dark green mascara sounds like it would be absolutely up my alley. Perfect addition to the ‘forest spirit goth’ look I’m collecting. 😀

I’ve never heard of that Lime Crime e/s palette but was intrigued so looked it up. What surprised me is how similar it is to a Cargo palette I have – Chill in the Six (in honour of my home town). This is a timely reminder that I should take it out and use it. I was going to use my old Naked on the Run eye/face palette for the next few days but after that, and with the weather hotting up, I think I’ll Chill (just outside the Six!)

Marc Jacobs highliner in rococo. Perfect depth, color and finish for my skin tone to line my lower waterline. Also non irritating to eyes.

Jealousy Wakes is the *perfect* green teal! I tracked that beauty down on eBay and use it in many a green eyeshadow look. Nearly matches my eye color, too!

For me, it would have to be ND Lila palette. Every look I’ve ever done with this palette makes my blue-green eyes POP. It just always works, whether I take it more neutral, more purple, more plum smokey.

Shiro Cosmetics (RIP) ‘Too Old, Too Poor, Too Dangerous,’ is the most gorgeous cool toned grey taupe with gold sheen. I absolutely adore it, it’s so unique and perfect, and easy to wear. The fact that it’s based on Professor Lupin doesn’t hurt either. I always loved him in the books!

I am light skinned, but I LOVE Charlotte Tilbury’s The Climax Blush as a bronzer. It is perfect for me. It is the exact color I tan. It always makes me look glowing and like I have glass skin. I would have thought it too dark for me looking at the pan as I am a shade 3 in her Magic Foundation, but I will be buying back-ups if she ever gets rid of it! If you can, try it!

I consider Tom Ford’s cream and Powder eye duos in Golden Peach or Fleur Neige to be made just for me– followed closely by Tom Ford’s double ended Glow Stick in Soleil Neige or Megeve . They are compact and portable yet each product offers 2 shades and 2 finishes! J
They are my dream summer products!
I wish they would have offered new shades of these products for Summer 2020!

Wet ‘n’ Wild Color Icon Single in the shade Nutty. This is my “one and done” shadow, and the only one I wear on my lids. It compliments my blue/green eyes perfectly.

Olive and gold eyeshadows – just cannot resist them and I feel that they were made for me.
Teal and dark shimmery blue eyeshadows – like Guerlain’s Les Gris and bareMinerals Editor’s Pick and Max Volume.
Orange/red lipsticks like Maybelline’s Spice for Me and CP’s Foolish – those shades work for just about every colour I wear.
Coral blush – Clinique’s Melon Pop, EA’s Sweet Peach – my perfect cheek shade.

Nars lip pencil in the color Endangered Red. It has become my signature lip. Everytime I wear it, people are giving me compliments

Urban Decay 24/7 Glide-On Eye Pencil in Perversion. The richest, creamiest black pencil liner, and it lasts on my waterlines. When I wear it on my upper lid, it never transfers to my crease. Perfrection.

Bobbi Brown bronzers in Golden Light and Aruba – the undertone is perfect. I’ve used those shades for over 10 years and they are the only products I buy back ups for, and usually on a yearly basis!

NYX eyeshadow primer was made for me. It’s the only one I use that never gets dry, greasy, or irritating.

As for colorful stuff, I think maybe ABH Sultry was made for me. And Marc Jacobs Diva lipstick.

Prescriptives (dc) lipstick in Champagne. Perfect swirl of shimmery beige-pink-peach. Equally glamorous and casual.
Lancome (ancient. haven’t looked but am sure they don’t still make it) chubby eye pencil in a light, bright golden khaki . Great for lining or whole lid. Gorgeous. Have never found another color quite like it.
It CC cream in Light. Glow, coverage, color are just right.
