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!

Christine FYI: she has raised all her lip product prices by two dollars, so lipsticks are now $40 and lip glosses $30.

So frustrating

The original reviews will show whatever the price was at that time of publishing, but if you look under the shade name/brand, it shows $40.00/014 oz., which is the current pricing. Hope that helps!

I’m glad that I purchased a couple of her lip glosses and lipsticks when they were $38. It isn’t that much of an increase but still I don’t know why she would suddenly do it and it’s turned me off from purchasing more in the future…

So tempted to get Madame Greige, but I had better try it on at Sephora before jumping that shark. I love it on everyone I see wearing it. Just not sure if I would love it in me.
If not, then possibly Love Train.

The fall Pat sale is one of the most difficult to resist. Many of these increase the pulse. But I KNOW there’s a reason I did not get them to date. That’s what the dupes are for, and IDK if it will be a ‘whew’ or a ‘damn’ about Lavish…. A saved by the bell, or a rationalization why it’s mandatory!

I am always impressed by how consistent her products are and very few real misses. I am feeling the price crunch though. She raised her prices on a product that is already pretty spendy. Luckily, regarding what she has released to date, I have pretty much all the shades I am crazy about or that are more unique to my collection. Unless some really amazing shades come down the pike, I am set with the ones that I have.

I’m actually kind of bummed that I have all the Luxetrance lipsticks that are “my colors.” Guinevere is the only matte one I wanted, and I have it in the awesome bluey packaging. I miiiiight be able to see myself in She’s Heaven, but if it’s even a little “too pink” it’ll go off on my complexion.

Thank you for putting together this very timely list of PMG’s best lippies, in view of the brand’s upcoming sale. They are still way too expensive for me, especially when factored in international shipping rates.
I do love the dupes though and have quite a few from Colour Pop. The most original shade in the list for me is Electra.

I’ve been looking and re-looking at Unfaithful since the moment it was released. I’ve put it in my cart, taken it out, put it back in, moved it to the wishlist. I can’t completely get away from it. I have almost no plum lip colors (maayyyybe 3? probably 2 — I need to look again), and this is the only one that ever held me spellbound like this. The weird thing is, I can’t decide whether I really like it. Not sure what’s going on.
