Week in Review | July 29th through August 4th

Happy Saturday! I always enjoy seeing what makes up the week’s top ten highest-reviewed products, so I hope you find it somewhat interesting as well! 🙂

P.S. — I have done as much as I think I can with respect to testing, re-testing, and trialing Anastasia’s Subculture palette with the three additional palettes in my possession (two I purchased, one was sent to me by Beautylish). I have updated my review based on that, though ultimately, my end results were consistent with my original review. I did, however, find that Cube progressively worsened and reduced the rating for that shade, which dropped the average rating down by about 1%. All edits and updates are on the original review. Thanks for being patient with me!
