What Have You Constantly Gotten Compliments On?

Just for fun, what item(s), hairstyle, makeup look, etc. have you gotten numerous compliments on?

For me, it's been a certain lipstick called Passionfruit that I think is the most gorgeous lipstick color I've ever seen and that's saying a lot since I have unteen lipsticks. It's a metallic fuschia/magenta color. I hope they never discontinue it!

When my hair was short and highlighted, I always got compliments on it. Then came marriage, house, and kid, and I'm lucky I get it cut anymore. Goodbye went the compliments on the hair.

I've most often gotten complimented on my hair. Just the thickness, color, and curl. It has its moments.

eta: Linda's response reminded me that I used to get so many compliments on my eyes. I wonder why I don't anymore? Oh, maybe because I started wearing glasses all the time...? Usually it was boys in high school and college complimenting my eyes, so maybe they didn't mean it...

Thereís not much about my physical appearance that draws compliments...

But I lector at Mass and I am often complimented on my ability to read in public in a way that helps people to understand the material.. I think it just comes with being a teacher...shrug....

mature and into elderly, I just get compliments on my baking. Yes, I can bake.

For my best friends 60th birthday I was asked to bring a cake to the celebration at a restaurant. I brought a chocolate cake and cannolis because she is Irish and Italian. The owner and the chef came out and asked me if I wanted a job baking for them.

Nope! Retirement is by far the best gig you can get.

My naturally medium wavy hair. I just wash it, air dry it, and off I go! Seems that women with very straight hair notice my natural waves the most.

My teeth (yes, they are my real teeth!) I always get compliments on how white they are! Even strangers will compliment me!


I really appreciate the above compliments on both of the above!

I often receive compliments on both my printing and cursive handwriting, my speaking voice (as opposed to my singing voice), my organizational abilities, my sense of humor, and my ability to really hear what someone is saying and give advice when asked.

And my story telling - the funny ones. My ability to put apostrophes in the correct place, and proofread extremely quickly. What a nice topic to think about! 😊

Since my braces came off at age 14 I'm regularly complimented on my smile. I have a big smile and I smile often.

When I wear lipstick people remark on it since I seldom wear it.

I've been told I have a very pleasant speaking voice, a little bit more when I was younger.

My hair. It turned grey in my 40s, and is mostly white now, though itís healthy and shiny and never shorter than shoulder length. Kids ask me if I dye it this color!

My hair and my teeth. I have to say, it seems kinda weird when people complement my teeth. I feel a bit like a horse.

My classroom "systems"

My "polite snarkiness" and willingness to say what needs to be said when others don't feel comfortable doing so

My nails and hair. My nails are ALWAYS, ALWAYS painted and sometimes with some art or fun color pattern - I do them myself.

I can't take the credit for the hair compliments because I have the most amazing stylist in the world!!! I have referred several people to her over the years.

Great guys! You know as I think more about it, for me, I could add that throughout my life, people have complimented me often on:

- my (real) long nails
- my hair (long and thick)
- my voice (they say I should be on the radio)
