Tuesday Top 5: Most Complimented Products!

Okay, ladies, share your secrets! What products do you wear that get you the most compliments?

-I Love New York for Mothers: Everytime I wear this, someone always asks what the perfume is. The different notes emerge as the day wears on, but the staying power is one of the most long lasting!

-Tom Ford quad in Cognac Sable: I don't know what Tom Ford did with his eyeshadows, especially his glitter ones, but they go on beautifully on the eyes. Each quad and trio gives such a polished, sophisticated look.

-L'oreal Infallible Eyeshadow in Golden Sage: On days when I feel like sporting a green eye look, I always turn to this pressed pigment of an eyeshadow. The complexity of this shade is just indescribable and the dimension absolutely gorgeous.

-Giorgio Armani Eyes to Kill in Pulp Fiction (#4): How can you not like this given the name? This flashes gray-taupe in some light and purple-taupe under different lighting. I like to refer to this shade as a chameleon shade, since it will also change depending on your skin tone. And just as an aside, L'oreal owns Giorgio Armani, so the formula of the Eyes to Kill is exactly the same as the Infallibles Smiley Happy

-Butter London Knackered: Trichrome in nature with red and green microshimmers, this is -- hands down -- one of the most unique shades in Butter London's line. Admittedly, it's a bit sheer on its own. But layered over a darker purple/mauve polish (e.g. OPI's Metro Chic), its true colors shine through.

Glad to have you in the Dior Brow Styler club, lady! Smiley Happy

Re: Tuesday Top 5: Most Complimented Products!

1. diesel Loverdose always gets noticed and complimented. It is definitely one of those scents that needs to blends with you for a little while though.

2. When I use BareMinerals Lash Domination people think I am using falsies!

3. Givenchy Kohl liner, my hubby goes insane, especially if I pair it with bold red lips, like OCC NSW lip tar, he says I look like Marilyn Monroe (no wonder I married him!)

4. Anything white. I guess it looks good against my skin tone, but I dread wearing it because I am a klutz and will get coffee all other it, be it a shirt, a dress, pants, socks, you name it Smiley Wink

5. UD eyeliner in Deviant, makes my eyes look wide awake.

Re: Tuesday Top 5: Most Complimented Products!

Lash Domination, huh? I think I may have one in my deluxe sized stash I need to try. Thank you for letting us know! Smiley Happy

Re: Tuesday Top 5: Most Complimented Products!

Hmmmmm compliments compliments......usually I go for minimal/understated, so I only recall 3 incidents of specific compliments rather than a "you look/smell nice."

 

- Tarte lipsurgence matte in Fiery. It's a cool red and a stranger/girl who saw me wearing it just bursted out "I like your lips I like your lips!" while bouncing up and down when she saw me. No compliments from guys, just second glances, smiles and whispers.

- Gold/green eyeshadow combo. I wore this a couple times, it's subtle enough you don't really notice it until you are close. Got a compliment from a lady waiting in line and plenty on BT when I posted it, lol.

- pink nail with gold glitter top coat. Wore this to a friend's wedding and was well received.

Aside from that most of the compliments I get are on my style/accessories.

Re: Tuesday Top 5: Most Complimented Products!

AHHHHH I love that eye look!!

Re: Tuesday Top 5: Most Complimented Products!

Thanks! Green/gold and green/blue are my favorite combo for colorful but casual eye look. Also posted other green eyeshadow looks altho the pic lighting isn't the best: http://community.sephora.com/t5/Eyes/Eye-looks-Wear-green-D/td-p/444021

Re: Tuesday Top 5: Most Complimented Products!

I think green eyeshadow might have been THE thing that made me a Sephora addict. I love love love green shadow!

Re: Tuesday Top 5: Most Complimented Products!

Red eyeshadow.....I did attempt it once for a Geisha look, except I didn't have red eyeshadow so I used a longlasting lipstick....which left a pink stain by my eyes the next day.....=X

Re: Tuesday Top 5: Most Complimented Products!

YIKES! That's not good Smiley Sad

Re: Tuesday Top 5: Most Complimented Products!

Rikkie, you must try L'oreal Golden Sage in that case! Smiley Happy

Re: Tuesday Top 5: Most Complimented Products!

You rock the green and gold, Beautytester! Let us know what other eye combos are your favorites Smiley Happy

Re: Tuesday Top 5: Most Complimented Products!

@ Poshified, I LOVE that scent! I just wish it wasn't so darned pricey! Smiley Tongue Issey Miyake's Florale got me into rose based scents and since then I found I Love NY for Mother's to be a stronger version of IM while Anna Sui's Flight of Fancy to be a more subtle, lighter version.

 

In regards to what I get complimented on, fragrance-wise it's Vera Wang's Princess and my IM Florale. Princess used to be my go-to scent and I would have guys and girls compliment me if I walked by enough to draw a breeze or if I was giving a hug. When my bf and I started dating my scent (and still is) was Florale and he would take a BIG whiff whenever we embraced and just give off a sigh of lovely relaxation and tell me how great I smelled.

 

I've gotten lots of compliments on my brows since using Benefit's Brow Zings in Dark which started up 4+ years ago. My brows are on the fuller side, but I make sure they're trimmed and shaped well, the powder/wax combo just emphasizes them more and gives them a structured look without being too harsh.

 

Napoleon Perdis' lipstick in Calypso, this rich magenta catches the eyes of folks because it's not the traditional red, but it's not neon pink either. I've had ladies stop me who blatantly state they never wear color but must know what I'm wearing and where I got it so they can purchase it because it's just so pretty.

 

 

Re: Tuesday Top 5: Most Complimented Products!

Missie772 and I were just talking about how Issey Miyake Florale will be making it into our perfume collection come F&F! It looks like it's Lylysa approved as well! *high five* Smiley Very Happy

 

I know, I wish the I Love NY line wasn't so expensive. I only save it for nights out! lol

Re: Tuesday Top 5: Most Complimented Products!

1) Kat Von D Liquid Lipstick in Berlin

2) Benefit Sugarbomb Boxed Powder

3) Benefit Watt's Up?

4) Estee Lauder Lipstick in Sugar Honey

5) Stila Kitten Eyeshadow

 

In no particular order Smiley Happy

Re: Tuesday Top 5: Most Complimented Products!

I love Kitten! Totally see the hype behind the color Smiley Happy

Re: Tuesday Top 5: Most Complimented Products!

1.  Laura Mercier Smooth Finish Foundation Powder - I rave about this product a lot and for good reason.  I recently was told my skin is "beautiful" which is something I used to -never- hear before.  I have redness and this covers so naturally without looking or feeling cake-y.

2.  VS body spray in Love Spell - I still wear this spray long after high school has ended.  I just can't part with it.  The scent is so fruity and not overbearing once it has blended in with your skin.  I get a lot of compliments when I wear this.

3.  UD in Easy Baked - This shadow is beautiful as an all over lid color.  My friend saw it on me and commented on how nice my eye make-up looked.

4.  UD All Nighter Setting Spray "Chill" - I agree with the poster above me.  I don't receive compliments on this in particular but I receive compliments on the fact that my make-up looks great all day and all night!  Love this stuff!

 

 

Re: Tuesday Top 5: Most Complimented Products!

Men go ga-ga over Love Spell! I was just talking about it the other day -- dunno what it is about it! Smiley Happy

Re: Tuesday Top 5: Most Complimented Products!

Great topic!

 

1.  Boscia BB Cream Light - people constantly tell me I'm "glowing" when I wear this, which I used to think was because apparently there is a slight sparkle in it (that for the life of me I don't see when I have it on) but this past weekend I was with a group of girlfriends and several of them made the "glowing" comment so I just asked them straight up if it was more a "sparkly" than a glow and they all swore up and down it was just a "healthy, happy glow" haha

 

2.  Abercrombie 8 perfume - haven't actually worn this since about 2005 :-) but I used to get at least 1-2 compliments a day on it, usually from strangers (mostly guys though, I don't know that girls found it to be all that great)

 

3.  Clinique Almost Lipstick in Black Honey - MLBB shade for me and have had several friends start using it after saying how much they liked it on me

 

I'm a pretty low-key dresser/accessorizer/makeup wearer in general, so when I get "done up" to go out or something I usually just get compliments on the whole "ensemble" I guess :-)

 

Re: Tuesday Top 5: Most Complimented Products!

Surprisingly I have not tried Black Honey! Maybe the color in the tube just scares me a bit Smiley Happy. Will try it on next time I'm at a counter!
