Here’s a look at the top 25 products reviewed in the month of July, 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? I haven’t had a whole lot of time the last couple of months to pay attention to new releases, so nothing new has been added to my wishlist.

What release tempted you the most? The Lethal Cosmetics x Theresa Is Dead palette.

Did you make any new purchases? The above, the Shroud IFB palette, some singles from Terra Moons, and the BH Cosmetics Passion in Paris palette.

Or successfully dupe a new product with something you already own? Not really.

DID ANYTHING NEW GET ADDED TO YOUR WISH LIST?

WHAT RELEASE TEMPTED YOU THE MOST? Sydney Grace x Temptalia Palettes, and Menagerie Cosmetics x Annette’s Makeup Corner Serenity Palette

DID YOU MAKE ANY NEW PURCHASES?
Yes. After barely buying anything for more than a year, I went a bit nuts with sales. But at least I’m excited about and wearing makeup again!
Lots of Supergoop mineral sunscreen items. The Sydney Grace x Temptalia Palettes; more SG stuff during their July sale, I hit the Menagerie Cosmetics restock and got Flight Club, x Annette’s Makeup Corner Serenity, Feral, and Arthurine Blush palettes. ND Bronze Palette (20 percent off flash sale). A quad and some Blitztrance Lipsticks from the PML sale. The Juvia’s Place quads. A few other things I can’t recall off the top of my head.

OR SUCCESSFULLY DUPE A NEW PRODUCT WITH SOMETHING YOU ALREADY OWN? Not intentionally

Totally forgot to answer this!

DID ANYTHING NEW GET ADDED TO YOUR WISH LIST?
Yes more Terra Moons singles — I hit their July sale, too, but there are many more I want. Dior Rouge Blush in 365 New World. Ciate London Colour Flip Light Reactive Colour Changing Glosses.

Did anything new get added to your wish list? Not in the month of July, nothing was added to my wishlist. Not even lipsticks.

What release tempted you the most? Definitely the SG Temptalia palettes – these are the most exciting set of eyeshadows that have been released this year!

Did you make any new purchases? Yep, I bought the On the Horizon Light palette and love it.

Or successfully dupe a new product with something you already own? From most of the eyeshadows that I have seen and liked, eg The CP duos of Pier Pressure and State of Nature, I can dupe those.

Did anything new get added to your wish list? The Sydney Grace mystery bags! The Sugar Drizzle Pizza Kitty palette and the Noctex matte singles that are on super sale right now!

What release tempted you the most? Everything new from Sydney Grace.

Did you make any new purchases? Too many to list here XD

Or successfully dupe a new product with something you already own? I can’t really think of anything but I am constantly looking up dupes all the time.

Did anything new get added to your wish list? I add things to the list almost every week. I can’t recall what I put on it in July though.
What release tempted you the most? Sidney Grace X Temptalia,
Did you make any new purchases? Yes, Sidney Grace X Temptalia all three palettes in light, Dear Reader, Happy Accident and a few other singles, Some Becca products, a few UD lipsticks on sale, some other lipsticks, some skincare. What can I say, I was down and needed a lot of pick me ups.
Or successfully dupe a new product with something you already own? Yes, old UD Vice that are dupes for new, and most certainly other products that I have forgotten.
It’s been a tough couple of months and this year seem to be turning into the worst year of my life. A lot of stress and anxiety is building up, so I can’t remember things like dupes, purchases I do remember, so I guess there’s hope for my brain. 😀

Did anything new get added to your wish list? The new Dior highlighters. If we get them at my Sephora I might pick them up

What release tempted you the most? Everything’s always tempting me from Colourpop, and of course the Dior highlighters, as well as the Clionadh restock

Did you make any new purchases? I picked up one of the new Sephora Collection eyeliners in “Flirting Game”. I love the color on me but without a primer and some powder it transfers onto my upper lid quickly

Or successfully dupe a new product with something you already own? I haven’t had a chance to look very deeply into my collection for possible dupes, but I should look into it for the new Colourpop Super Shock duos and Dior highlighters
