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!

I loved the Nyx Liquid Suede Metallic Mattes, Nyx Liquid Suedes in Subversive Socialite and Respect The Pink, Nyx Luv Out Loud Liquid Lipsticks (I got the three purples), and Wet n Wild liquid Catsuits from the Halloween and Midnight Mermaid Collections.

I love CP ULtra Satins, but I don’t think I bought any this year. (It’s hard to remember.)

I got one each of the Zoeva formulas in my BF haul. The Pure Lacquer in Senso, an orange, is stunning. And with their smaller matte palette, can do a terrific monochromatic orange look. The formula for the PL is anti-feather, despite being a lacquer, rather than matte finish. The Pure Velours is nice as well, but neither the color nor the formula impressed me as much. The tube lipstick (off topic, I know) is good, but not really worth overseas ordering, with the colors being so dupable. Z’s flat rate shipping is 9 now, unless they went up today. That can easily offset state/city sales tax.
