Best New Beauty Products (February 2021)

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

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? Musee Beauty Le Jardin Palette; Terra Moons Phoenix Iridescent Chemeleon

What release tempted you the most? Oden’s Eye The Norns Collection; ND Mini Love Palette; the heart shaped blushes from ColourPop’s Valentine’s collection

Did you make any new purchases? I got the Huda Nude Obsessions in Medium and Rich (sale page). I ordered the Companion Palette from Copacetic Cosmetics (still waiting to receive it).

Or successfully dupe a new product with something you already own? Not on purpose, though I was sure I had dupes for the CP Valentine blushes.

Did anything new get added to your wish list? Some Terramoon’s shadows would be fun!

What release tempted you the most? PMGL Eternal Eden quad and Divine Rose highlight

Did you make any new purchases? See above question re: release temptations 😁

Or successfully dupe a new product with something you already own? I’m sure I have Clionadh dupes for some of the Terramoons shadows that caught my eye.

Did anything new get added to your wish list? Oh yeah! Many Terra Moon multicrome shadows, the Becca Moondance cream Luminizer, everything Pat McGrath.

What release tempted you the most? Definitely both the most recent installments to PML Divine Rose! And and that Terra Moon multicrome gorgeousness!

Did you make any new purchases? I have. Used my $100 Sephora Rouge GC for practical purposes and got another Dr. Dennis Gross Ferulic & Retinol Eye Serum and another tube of Farmacy Green Defence Daily Mineral Sunscreen, plus threw in ND Bronze Palette.

Or successfully dupe a new product with something you already own? In a few instances, I have been able to.

Did anything new get added to your wish list? Give Me glow -On Ice πŸ™‚
What release tempted you the most? None really.
Did you make any new purchases? Skin Care basics, needed some gel-based moisturizer for the coming warmer months.
Or successfully dupe a new product with something you already own? I have been really enjoying the Flower Beauty Jungle Lights palette (great dupe for the HourGlass scattered lights); I managed to finish the CT Flawless Filter, but instead of buying another (or Auric) I decided to combine a drop of the Cover Fx shiny drops (name escapes me) in Blossom with my primer + a drop of foundation…..been loving this and has been really mask-friendly. So, will just finish this and keep going with the project panning πŸ™‚

*Did anything new get added to your wish list? Nothing really beyond refills
*What release tempted you the most? Terra Moons offerings look really sexy, but I am still waiting for my inaugural order from Clionadh.
*Did you make any new purchases? I picked up NARS lipstick in Augustine which I had on my wishlist for a long time. It’s a beautiful darker than normal nude for me lipstick. I like it is not super warm toned with rosiness which is very flattering against my skintone. I also picked up Dior Iconic Overcurl mascara. I had tried a freebie mini and I love how it actually lifts and separates my upper lashes. It has become my first coat mascara for my upper lashes. I still finish with Marc Jacobs velvet noir. Almost forgot.. also picked up ABH Broiw freeze styling wax.. It holds well, but not any better and grrrr custier than my usual Surratt which is difficult for me to obtain (Big S does not carry it).
*Or successfully dupe a new product with something you already own? I passed on PMG because even I have become tired of new iterations of the same colour story. I loved the Valentine lipstick duo with pencil, but I do not wear red lips.

Did anything new get added to your wish list? I am still looking at Interstellar Icons by PMG, hoping that it will go on sale and Icy Frapp by Give Me Glow.

What release tempted you the most? None of the more recent releases have tempted me the most, apart from some individual shades from Give Me Glow.

Did you make any new purchases? I have purchased some new Lux Lipsticks from CP – but that’s about it.
A couple are for my daughter in law for her upcoming birthday.

Or successfully dupe a new product with something you already own? I dupe all the time on shades that I like because I have such a big, big stash.

Did anything new get added to your wish list? Oh so many things! Danessa Myricks, Give Me Glow and Terra Moons eye shadows are all on my list now.
What release tempted you the most? Hmm maybe the Give Me Glow.
Did you make any new purchases? Just a Mac brow bone color.
Or successfully dupe a new product with something you already own? Nope.
