Best New Beauty Products (April 2021)

Here’s a look at the top 25 products reviewed in the month of April, plus a summary of how many products and brands were reviewed and a break out of ratings! 🙂

I think it’d be fun to go through what we used, purchased, resisted, and so forth each month, here are some questions:

  1. Did anything new get added to your wish list?
  2. What release tempted you the most?
  3. Did you make any new purchases?
  4. Or successfully dupe a new product with something you already own?

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!

Did anything new get added to your wish list? Not this month; I’ve been very content with my collection lately.

What release tempted you the most? I was briefly tempted by the Lizzie McGuire CP collection.

Did you make any new purchases? Just some singles from TerraMoons.

Or successfully dupe a new product with something you already own? I was able to quickly dupe the vibes of the Lizzie McGuire palette with the ND Triochrome palette (which I’m so in love with), so money saved and I get to use that beautiful palette more when I’m in the mood for that color story.

Did anything new get added to your wish list? Kaleidos Flower Punk Palette

What release tempted you the most? Menagerie Cosmetics Flight Club

Did you make any new purchases? Yes: Flawless Cosmetics Aurora Palette, KVD Everlasting Blush in Rosebud, BH Cosmetics Remix Dance Palettes in 00s and 80s,Joe Malone London fragrances, and some skincare.

Or successfully dupe a new product with something you already own? Menagerie Flight Club with Viseart Violette Etendu.

The only thing added to my wishlist this month was a couple of lipsticks and a couple of blushes. Lipsticks are not a hot item for me as I’m not wearing any so… they can sit on the shelf fttb.

I was tempted by and purchased the Bare Minerals Gen Nude Blonzer in two shades. Everything else has been completely ho-hum. I’m not feeling much excitement over cosmetics. I’m guessing I may be tempted by PML blushes when they arrive.

Did anything new get added to your wish list? Nothing really.

What release tempted you the most? I must admit I did like Nars’s newest 9 pan, but it is similar to Smashbox’s Petal Metal/Naked 3.

Did you make any new purchases? No beauty purchases, just skincare

Or successfully dupe a new product with something you already own? I always dupe lipsticks I see and like with ones I own already.

Did anything new get added to your wish list? Nope (I’m finding it difficult to “wish” for stuff unless I can see it in person and stores here are remaining closed for the foreseeable)
What release tempted you the most? Probably those Guerlain Kiss Kiss (or whatever they’re called) lip balms
Did you make any new purchases? I don’t think so – my last purchases were during the VIB Rouge sale (what month was that?)
Or successfully dupe a new product with something you already own? I have a dupe for Daisy Red (which I may buy in any case for the nostalgia of the name) and will probably get either the Sephora or Revlon Dupe of Petal Red (both scored higher than Petal Red’s B+) but, again, that will be when stores reopen.
