What’s The One Product You Always Get Complimented On?

By Beaut.ie | April 15 2011 | 50 Comments


I used to have this fabarooney Paul and Joe blusher that was pink and shot through with subtle golden pearl and yeah I liked it and all but it wasn’t feckin’ spectacular. Or at least, I didn’t think so anyway.


Except every time I wore it I got people telling me I looked well or holy mother of sweet divine what was that amazing stuff I had on my cheeks and could they buy some too?

This kept happening and then the universe intervened and sent An Order to Shatter into my handbag, which complied by crushing the life out of the lovely luminizing, compliment-giving blusher, thus rendering it completely unusable.


I’ve never come close to having a product that was so universally admired in use since. What about you lot though? Got anything in your beauty bags that people routinely gasp over in stunned amazement when they see it on your face? Spill in the comments!

    For me definitely Smashbox’s O-Glow. I get tonnes of compliments on it, all the time.

    My Double Wear foundation is the perfect colour for my skin (Linen – not available in Ireland!!) and I’ve had numerous comments on it which usually results in them buying it too.

    The other is usually my mascara. I have long lashes so I am usually asked what mascara I’m wearing or am I’m wearing false lashes? Most of the time is when I’m wearing Max Factor Masterpiece Max or False Lash Effect. I usually then get given out to after they buy it and have the same effect from it!

    Mac’s Morange lipstick – girls in shops always ask me what it is.

    Chanel ProLumiere! My HG of foundation!

    I got a Sleek blusher when I was over in London back in Jan and started wearing it recently. Despite my skin being in a heap at the minute, everyone keeps commenting on how fab I look with it. Even my sister, who can be critical of make-up (not in a bad way mind but she won’t compliment unless she really likes it) said it looked brilliant. Cheap as chips as well so I’m happy!

    Urban Decay glitter eye-liner. I have two, silver and a bronze. The odd time my MAC lipstick in Diva, but almost always the glitter eye-liner.

    I did a course in make-up recently and since then I’ve been wearing eyeshadow during the day – just a neutral nude, with a smudgy darker shade on the outside of my eye. Without fail, everyone who sees me for the first time since my “new look” says I look great. It’s simultaneously heartening and, eh, disheartening. Didn’t I look great before?! Obviously not!

    At the moment I’m wearing the lovely Bourjois “Healthy Skin” foundation.

    Have had loads of compliments on my skin since I started using this stuff, ranging from “oh your skin looks great!” to “wow, you have some glow about you”…

    Very flattering!

    Oh, great post! Never get compliments on my makeup, I wonder why :)???
    Anyway, I want to participate, so I’ll give you my most complimented perfume: Miss Dior Cherie L’Eau = beaoootifool!
