For me:

In -20: long underwear, then heated gear, then insulated suit over that, done.

Foggy respro in the helmet with a pinlock, fleece tube (Buff) under helmet, over collar. Hippo hands, warm boots.
Tried switching layers and put jacket liner closest to my skin...big difference. Thank you for you and others who suggested it.
Had to tune down thermostat a bit.
As for legs and feet, well, the electric is somehow not getting to pants and socks. I'm actually surprised then that my layers alone kept me as warm as they did. And god bless those Scout boots. Even though feet were freezing, I made it to work/home without too much discomfort which is saying a lot about the boots in -10 and under windchills. So I have to straighten out the faulty connection.
I def want to give hippo hands a try. Putting on heated glove liners then ski gloves is a bit of a pain. The thought of wearing comfortable gloves is very appealing.
