What was the last makeup product you wore that received a compliment?

You are all so kind to give me compliments on the daily, and my husband is pretty kind but I remember him really liking how this gold-teal-copper look came out 🙂

I was wearing MAC Selena No Me Queda Mas in the crease and MAC Trolls Suns Out Buns Out on the eyelid. Got compliments on how I do my eyeshadow 🙂

My 8 yr old little brother complimented on my lashes one time when I wore Kate lash maximizer (a Japanese lash primer) along with They’re real by Benefit.

My boyfriend doesn’t specify things when he compliments me. And my friends, especially my guys friends, like when I where blue or green lips. But the most compliment reserved people in my life, my work people, really REALLY love when I wear Anastasia Veronica… and I have no idea why…

I actually got two compliments on my eyeshadow a few days ago! I used MUG Peach Smoothie all over, Colourpop I Owe You in the crease and outer lid, and MUG Magic Act on the inner third of the lid.

I actually bought NYX Cosmic Metals Lip Cream in “Fuchsia Fusion” for fun, thinking it is a little to bold and I’m a bit too old 🙂 to wear it. I wore it out once and received two compliments from strangers regarding what a pretty shade and how flattering it looked! Wow! Go figure! 🙂

I receive compliments on my skin all the time and believe me I am not sure why. All I see when I look in the mirror is my hyper-pigmentation but I am trying to be better about only seeing the faults. Anyway, my daughter is always telling me that I need to work on that tendency. I also received a lot of compliments from waitresses in the nearest town for an e/s look I did and posted to my Instagram. Thank you NancyT. also for your compliment. I always like the way my eyes look with any purple/lavender/violet e/s as they compliment my fair, cool undertones and my very dark brown eyes.

All the night job customers love CP LLs, mostly the matte darks. I don’t always wear m/u there, but usually get at least one compliment, if I do. Think it’s bec I used to wear glasses there and now cannot, so the m/u is more obvious. Another big compliment getter is anything green mascara. We wear green shirts, so it’s a natural, but unexpected on a neutral eye…and Ms C’s Good Mood on the lower lashline! I find the public is more likely to compliment, than one’s friends or acquaintances.

I regularly get compliments about my eyelook or my lip choice. Lots of sweet people surrounds me?.

The last one came from my partner about the sephora liquid lipstick 01 always red. He loved how bright it was on my complexion. According to him I shouldn’t even wear it too often to keep it special! Lol

I’m all about bold lippies, but last week I was wearing MAC’s paint pot stroke of ego on eyes paired with Anastasia Pure Hollywood lipstick and literally *everyone* complimented me about how classy I was. I should tone down my office looks, I guess.. lol

I can imagine it would be pretty stand out when hubby would remark on a particular eye look – so he’s into gold? 🙂 That’s wonderful!
Every now and then I ask my bf about my latest experimentation with colour, and I think he appreciates a good gradient/blend!

On Friday I wore a neutral/warm pink Colourpop shadow and a burgundy shadow from Kylie cosmetics in my crease with Royale by Strobe Cosmetics on the lid, plus Glossier cloud paint in puff and a Kylie x KKW liquid lipstick (gloss?). Apparently I can’t remember any names. Anyways, I got a lot of compliments from people at work, which was a nice boost since I haven’t worn makeup in a while. Also, that was my first time testing Strobe eyeshadows and I have to say it performed really well!
