Makeup Hall of Fame

Each year, Allure magazine has a "Best of Year" review where they test all the best products from the ton of stuff that they got sent over the year and choose which products they think are best. This question doesn't pertain to any year, just what product(s) would you nominate for the Makeup Hall of Fame?  In other words, what makeup product do you think is the all time best, not just products that were invented or you discovered this year? You can list skin care products too if you want.


My choices:

Shadow: Urban Decay Naked Palette

Blush: NARS Orgasm or Too Faced Pink Leopard (tie)

Hair- Tourmaline hair dryers (no more frizzies!)







Re: Makeup Hall of Fame

This is a tough one!  I'll just have to go with what comes to mind first.


Shadow: Urban Decay 15th Anniversary Palette

Lipstick: Victoria's Secret Lipstick in Pulse from the Loves Me Wild Collection

Perfume: Marc Jacob's Daisy (although after I tested Beyonce's new Pulse today, I'm not too sure lol)


Re: Makeup Hall of Fame

What a fun idea prettyinpa!  Here are my choices:


Eyeshadow: Urban Decay Urban Ammo Eye Palette 


Lipstick: NARS Pure Matte Lipstick in Bangkok


Lipgloss: Buxom Big & Healthy Lip Polish


Body: Diamond File For Foot Calluses #20 (Ladies & gents if you haven't tried this, it's seriously like a pumice stone on steroids. I've purchased so many and this is by far, the BEST!)

Re: Makeup Hall of Fame

Ooo, fun! I always enjoy learning about others' favorite products. Here are mine:


Mascara: Lancome Hypnose Drama (kaboom!)

Blush: Laura Mercier Tender Mauve, so natural looking (honorable mention to Smashbox O-Glow)

Eyeshadow: Lancome "Zip Me Up", amazing color that changes color based on what light catches it, grey/purple/shimmer

Re: Makeup Hall of Fame

1. Peter Thomas Roth Unwrinkle Lip

2. Kat Von D True Romance Eyeshadow Palette - Saint

3. Buxom Big and Healthy Lipstick

4. Sephora Collection Jumbo Liner 12HR Wear Waterproof

Re: Makeup Hall of Fame
