-monistat chafing gel as a primer
-benefit’s hoola bronzer
-st moritz self tanner
-MAC’s paint pot as an eyeshadow base

these are all great products which were recommended by a friend or a youtube-girl!!

Well, besides all of yourrr recommendation lol I would have to say Cover Girl Lash Blast mascara. As suggested by my brothers then girlfriend. Thanks Irene!

Nivea Visage Anti-Wrinkle Q10 Eye Cream.
Afordable and a great product.
I have tried very expensive products before but this one kicks butt big time!

Wow this is tough…I’m usually the one that recommends products to people…but I’ll have to say the Naked pallete by urban decay

i’d say
-Milani Luminous Blush (You via Temptalia.com :D)
-Maybelline Lipstick in Pink Please (JoMakeMeBlush via YT & Twitter)
-MAC Dazzle Lipstick in Naughty You (from Dustin O’Hunter via YT)

Organic Argan Oil from Mir.
Mix one pump with your normal face creams and they last even longer, so money saving too.

Glo Minerals Passionfruit lipstick recommended by you! It’s such a beautiful color and lasts so long. I just love it! Thanks for your fabulous blog!

Pretty much all my products were recommended to me by other people but real stand outs are Bare Study Paintpot and Copperplate eyeshadow

Ooh I don’t know. If by recommendation we mean online reviews, then I’d say Urban Decay’s 24/7 eyeliners. I use them every day and love them so much. πŸ™‚

Very tough. I almost exclusively purchase based on recommendation. The very best? I think what got my beautycase career started – a brown HypnΓ΄se.

One thing that stands out for me is Christine’s recommendation for MAC’s paint pot and brush 249. They changed my world!

A few years ago, I had no idea that such a thing as eye shadow primer even existed. I bought it on MakeupGeek’s recommendation and I never go a day without it!

Revlon colorstay foundation, soft brown eyeshadow ( use it every day!) love nectar lustreglass, ample pink plushglass. Foundation recced by yt girl, mac items by sa!

I’m just like Rima, I’m the one always recommending. I do remember one of my friends telling me about L’oreal’s Voluminous mascara & now it’s one of my favorites.

ELF Studio products before I wouldnt touch them with a ten foot stick cause i was being snobby but man it is some nice stuff

LUSH’s Buffy. I will never live without it again. Makes my legs so smooth and soft without any lotion(coming from someone who used to buff/cream it up everytime she showered…)

Peter Thomas Roth Instant Mineral SPF 45 and ROC Retinol Night Cream…both amazing products bought after a recommendation!

The answer to this could change depending on my mood, right now I’d say Sleek Pout Polishes. I’d known about their amazing eyeshadow palettes when my friend Ana told me about the lip balms. She later sent me my first one, and now I’m hooked- I own every single shade! They’re lovely feeling on the lips, have the perfect amount of tint for quick, running out of the house color, have SPF…what else can you ask for?

Sonia Kushak Eye Make-up Remover – pretty much a Lancome Bi-Facil dupe but way cheaper.

MAC paint pots as a base – I’ve got incredibly hooded eyes and always had huge creasing issues. No more!

I’ve bought a bunch of things that I consider HG by your recommendation Christine: Benefit’s Velvet Eyeshadow Line, UDPP, Milani Liquif’eye, and UD 24/7 Eyeliners.

I honestly can’t remember the last time I was able to actually take someone’s recommendations on beauty products. Every time I tell people that I have eczema and super-sensitive skin, they throw all these product recommendations at me that they say are “perfect” for people with sensitive skin… usually stuff that has some kind of tree nut oil (which I can’t use), or stuff that is heavily fragranced.

Although I do look at other people’s nail polish swatches to figure out what polishes to buy… I guess that counts as a recommendation πŸ™‚

Too many to name thanks to youtube community and Temptalia.
However I need recommendation for something that can get rid of freckles. Help, anyone??!!

Best product so far is the Nars Sheer Glow! it’s the first foundation to actually match my too fair skin and it covers redness way better than any other foundation i’ve had!

Chanel Dramatically Different moisturizer. I usually take recommendations with a grain of salt(Usually, people ask ME for them, so I assume they may be recommending it out a lack of knowledge of other options.)

Bobbi Brown eye shadows. I never thought to try them because the colors are not as bold as other brands but they have some great everyday wear shades and the matte and metal color formulas are beautiful and buttery.
I have taupe, khaki, rock, mink and pewter.

Powdered mineral foundation!

Seriously, that stuff changed my life. I could never wear foundation without breaking out until some gals on the BPAL forums got me into it. Now I don’t go a day without it.

A Lancome rep. suggested I buy the blush color ‘Cedar Rose’. I did. Everyone has complimented me on the shade. Women who rarely talk to me even stopped & asked: ‘You look all perky!! What did you do different?’

These were all recommended and I love them! I don’t know how I lived without them hahaha

Nars Mekong e/s
MAC Copperplate e/s
MAC Patina e/s
MAC 217 brush
Aveeno Clear complexion daily moisturizer

MAC’s Dainty Mineralize Blush, Rhapsody in Two Mineralize Blush, Ripe Peach Blush Ombre, Petticoat MSF, Teddy Eye Kohl, Feline Kohl Power Eye Pencil, All That Glitters e/s, NARS Orgasm blush and Benefit’s boxed powder blushes.

Many! But the most important one so far is Nivea Q10 Anti-Wrinkle Sensitive skin cream – no breakouts, even tho I have combo skin to the extreme and rosacea/sensitivity. And I can use it around my eyes.

Chanel Vitaluminaire foundation as recommended by Sam on pixiwoo. The worst recommendation, incidentally, was from this blog’s reader choice awards, and was the covergirl lash blast mascara. I’m shocked so many people like this mascara! It flakes, it smudges, and the wand is so big it makes it difficult to apply to lashes on the outside edges of my eyes. I guess it’s all about personal preference, but I couldn’t find anything redeeming about this product!

I know there’s probably more, but I ‘ve bought Maybelline’s Dream mousse concealer because Amarixe recommended it & I also bought MAC’s in the groove’s Happy Together blush because a MAC mua recommended it… if that counts (:

mac hipness frost blush. i was told most everyone could wear this blush. when i saw it i thought “oh no!”. the most flattering blush on me lightly applied. (nw20 mac products)

Well, I mainly just take your recommendations, reviews and swatches. I really loved MAC Hipness Blush, Urban Decay Vegan Palette, Naked by Urban Decay, and all the Urban Decay 24/7 liners.

ummm let’s count.. Guerlain rouge Gs, MAC paint pot, Bobbi brown shimmer brick in nectar (loveee), and lots of MAC lipsticks from the spring season… ALL FROM YOU !!!!! now i know who to blame for my overflown makeup collections !!!!

MAC Prep & Prime face protect SPF 50 primer. My fellow oily complexion friend recommend this to me, and I have since then been shine free :-).

guerlain rouge g lipsticks!!!!thanks to you christine for recommending this product…im hooked to it so much that i have neglected my other lipsticks….

Honestly, my favorite product this year, or even longer, is the Naked Palette, recommended by you Christine. I have hunderds of eyeshadows, palettes, but this is my favorite palette ever.

I have bad skin (acne) and a lady at sephora gave me a sample of a product that’s a face primer that’s medicated with 1% salicylic acid for people with acne. I dont remember the name of the product but if u have oild skin you might want to stay away from it. Creamy products tend to make my face look oily.

Nars sheet glow (I like the finish) – the only thing I do not like about this foundation is that it does nt match my skin well.

MUFE HD – It makes my face look oily (all liquid makeup does) but they match my skin the BEST.

Urban Decay Primers are the best. I do have too faced btu i prefer urbaan decay, yeah despite the package.

Nars sheer glow foundation and the maxs factor, 2000 calorie mascara,I heard a very good review from lollipop26,so y not give them a try,and they’re my hg products.

I’d have to say Chanel rouge allure laques in Dragon by the wonderful Christine! I’ve been using it quite a bit lately & the hubby really, really likes it. πŸ˜‰
