Comments that do not adhere to our comment policy may be removed. Discussion and debate are highly encouraged but we expect community members to participate respectfully. Please keep discussion on-topic, and if you have general feedback, a product review request, an off-topic question, or need technical support, please contact us!

Please help us streamline the comments' section and be more efficient: double-check the post above for more basic information like pricing, availability, and so on to make sure your question wasn't answered already. Comments alerting us to typos or small errors in the post are appreciated (!) but will typically be removed after errors are fixed (unless a response is needed).

We appreciate enthusiasm for new releases but ask readers to please hold questions regarding if/when a review will be posted as we can't commit to or guarantee product reviews. We don't want to set expectations and then disappoint readers as even products that are swatched don't always end up being reviewed due to time constraints and changes in priorities! Thank you for understanding!

Hi Christine,

I just had to stop and leave a comment saying how much I appreciate all of the time and effort you take into all of your blog posts! I have been following your blog for a while now, and although I don’t leave many comments, I am always blown away by how thorough you are with everything. I really enjoy the Reader’s Choice and Editor’s Choice awards each year, and I’m so glad you even thought to provide a printable cheat sheet. Thank you so much – you are definitely my #1 source for getting information on all things beauty-related 🙂

Love reading all your favs. Will defo check out ud liners as I love mac pearl glide and ud looks similar but with a massive colour range. I was wondering how you would rate nars blushers , both powder and cream, in comparison to the favourites you listed in the awards?

I really just got to say, THANK YOU! You always take the time to do a great job at what your doing and I seriously go on your website everyday. I definitely trust your judgments about makeup. By the way, I LOVE the printable version. 🙂

We try to approve comments within 24 hours (and reply to them within 72 hours) but can sometimes get behind and appreciate your patience! 🙂 If you have general feedback, product review requests, off-topic questions, or need technical support, please contact us directly. Thank you for your patience!
