Best New Beauty Products (March 2021)

Here’s a look at the top 25 products reviewed in the month of March, 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? Dior Poncho Quint, Victoria Beckham Eye Brick in Signature, Dior Backstage Warm Neutrals, Purito BB Cream and L’Oréal Infallible Powder Foundation

What release tempted you the most? The MAC Black Cherry has been the most tempting. I managed to get one of the blushes. I’d like one of the tinted lip balms. Otherwise the releases lately have been highly unappealing as far as color cosmetics go. Many of the skincare and foundation releases I’m not interested in. I’m only buying any foundation once I use up what I have first!

Did you make any new purchases? I bought a Revlon Candid concealer in banana to brighten my under eyes

Or successfully dupe a new product with something you already own? I don’t have any dupes but I saw on another blog how she paired a peach blush on the higher part of her cheekbones and then a lavender shade on the apples of her cheeks so I found two shades in my collection to do a similar look!

Did anything new get added to your wish list? Not really!

What release tempted you the most? The ND Circo Loco palette.

Did you make any new purchases? I did, ND Circo Loco among them.

Or successfully dupe a new product with something you already own? I usually can dupe, but not a lot has been on my radar this month.

Did anything new get added to your wish list? I’m still eyeing the Angelica x Kaleidos eyeshadow palette, but I’m not sure if it’s coming back into stock

What release tempted you the most? I’m just coming off of a break from looking at new releases, so I’m honestly not quite caught up yet with everything that’s been coming out!

Did you make any new purchases? Nope

Or successfully dupe a new product with something you already own? The Colourpop Limoncello palette I can pretty much dupe with my California Love and All I See is Magic palettes

The answers to 1, 2 AND 3 are the Melt cosmetics cream Blushlights. I need another cream blush (including in that colour range) like I need a hole in the head, but I ate up reviews like they were candy, kept adding to wishlist and then convincing myself I did not need it… and then I purchased yesterday in a moment of weakness. Didn’t even wait another week for the Sephora sale!
I probably COULD dupe it (Polished) or combine products to create a dupe, but ugh – it was just too irresistible.
My name is Christie, and I have a blush problem.

Did anything new get added to your wish list? No. I’m saving for your SG palettes. I haven’t seen anything that I want as much as those.

What release tempted you the most? Menagerie Cosmetics Flight Club Palette and ND Circo Loco.

Did you make any new purchases? Yes. I got the Kaleidos x Angelica Nyqvist Club Nebula, Musee Beauty Le Jardin, and Adept Plain Jane pallettes. I also got the Estee Lauder Limited Edition Pure Color Envy Crème Cheek Blush in Rebellious Rose.

Or successfully dupe a new product with something you already own? I decided the Viseart Violette Etendu Palette and other purples I own duped the Menagerie Flight Club well enough.

Did anything new get added to your wish list? The only thing I’ve added (waiting for the VIB Rouge sale) is ABH Chiffon eyeshadow. I thought I already owned it but had it confused with Truffle Glitter (I think). It’s new on my list but hardly a “new” product
What release tempted you the most? I actually haven’t been aware at all of any new releases.
Did you make any new purchases? Just some Saje diffuser blends (which – GASP – I ordered online as they’re mostly replenishments of my faves); I was going to go to the mall to purchase them but hubs begged me to stay away from malls and also to knock my teaching on the head until I’ve been vaccinated.
Or successfully dupe a new product with something you already own? Oh gosh – probably EVERYTHING (blame the Brobdingnagian stash!)

Did anything new get added to your wish list? Not really. I am looking forward to seeing your SG range when it comes out Christine.

What release tempted you the most? Lots of the Spring shades that have come out aren’t really my colours at the moment.

Did you make any new purchases? Not lately, as I purchased a few around Christmas time, so I am pretty well stocked up.

Or successfully dupe a new product with something you already own? I can always dupe eyeshadows in my favourite shades and ditto for lipsticks.
