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!

Your skin tone/coloring: Under my name (blue-green eyes).

Look you loved this week?: Again using PMG Decadence Mothership!
Eyes: Used Entrapment and Disobedient from Mothership V Bronze Seduction as my transition and to slightly contour my invisible eye socket, then went in with Skinshow Divine Glow in the tearducts before going in with Decadence. Divine Mink on outer lid arched over halfway through the crease and on outer lower lashline, Enigma on inner lid arched upwards and out meeting Divine Mink in a halo, Sinful on that lid halo and inner lower lashline, my usual MAC Blacktrack Fluidline winged liner, Maybelline Full & Soft waterproof mascara and Smashbox tightline pencil.
Cheeks: Nyx Taupe blush, Hourglass Lucid Glow from the Ghost quad, ABH Amrezy highlighter.
Lips: Nyx Ever SLP, PMG Flesh 3 Lip Fetish Sheer Color Balm, MAC Marbled Faun Lipglass.

Any new or old favorites discovered?: Nope, not really.

Any product you’re hoping to use next week?: I have no idea…but I’m thinking!

Your skin tone/coloring: Under my name; magenta/red hair; hazel/green eyes.

Look you loved this week?: The smokey berry look I wore to the #MST3KLIVE show last night. EYES — TFSI. CP Butter Me Up Palette: Silk Street (crease), Night Dream (outer 1/3 of lid, smoking out eyeliner on top and bottom lash lines), Reckless (deep crease, blending out the lower smoked lash line), Fleet (lid), The Big Three (brow bone), On a Whimsy (inner corner), and Island Hopping (lightly tapped on the outer part of the orbital bone). UD 24/7 Eye Pencil in Perversion (upper and lower waterlines; smoked out on the top and bottom lash lines). Clinique High Impact Mascara in Black. BROWS — ABH e/s in Love Letter. CHEEKS — Sydney Grace Pressed Blush in Paris Skies. LIPS — Bite Beauty Amuse Bouche Lipstick in Thistle. FACE — CP All Star Mattifying Face Primer; Makeup Revolution Conceal & Define Full Coverage Foundation in F0.2; RCMA No Color Powder; Sephora Color Contour in Tranquil; ABH Luna from the Aurora Glow Kit; UD All Nighter Setting Spray.

Any new or old favorites discovered?: I’m really loving Wet n Wild ColorIcon Blush in Blazen Berry. It’s such a pretty, ruddy color. I’ve been wearing that and Paris Skies almost exclusively for my blushes the last few weeks.

Any product you’re hoping to use next week?: I still need to try out my PML Galactic Gold Palette. I’m also hoping to try the two new Milani Rose Powder Blushes I bought. The two new shades I bought are beautiful, but they’re much more pigmented than the other four I own, especially Spiced Rose. It caught me off guard.

I’m all over Paris Skies (blush) paired with Chanel Eclat du Desert (highlighter).

Galactic Gold has a two of my favourite lid shades right now: Corruption and Electron… or wear both layered.. Oh mon dieu..

Your skin tone/coloring: above with freckles, green/gray/blue eyes, warm brown hair.

Look you loved this week?: I dusted off my Viseart Amethyst Theory palette and used all the purples on my eyes. I paired it with CoverFX monochromatic blush duo in Soft Peach and Em Cosmetics True Gloss in Secret Blush. I really love pairing purples and peaches together. I always forget how much I enjoy the Amethyst Theory palette.

Any new or old favorites discovered?: The CoverFX Soft Peach blush duo has become a favorite of mine, especially layered over Glossier Cloud paint in beam. It looks flawless and is a really pretty color and sheen on my skin tone.

Any product you’re hoping to use next week?: I purchased a nice new tube of Lancôme Monsieur Big Mascara (a caveat to my no-buy since my mascara has run out) and am excited to use it next week. I haven’t tried a Lancôme mascara in years, but remember how much I loved it back then. I figure since I’m not spending nearly as much on makeup, I can splurge a little bit on mascara, right? Also, my excitement for the little things in makeup has definitely increased now that I’m buying less. I love that!

I love the Cover FX Soft Peach shades and I think it would work well on your complexion. Peach shades work so well with purples and blues. Your looks sounds very pretty.

Your skin tone/colouring: Porcelain, with pink undertones

Look you loved this week?: I did a few, but my favourite was a multi coloured look using UD’s Vice 2 – Strike (gold) all over the lid, with Madness (mid blue) on the lower lid, Damaged (green) just above it and Betrayal ( a soft purplish blue) in the crease. I paired it with CP’s Gallop lipstick. I took particular care to blend each shade in well and I was really happy with it.

Any new or old favorites discovered?: Vice 2 – I just wish it had a bronze and pewter shades in the palette instead of all of those pinks and blacks…..

Any product you’re hoping to use next week?: Stila in the Garden. Haven’t used it in awhile.

Oh, Genevieve – you’ve put a smile on my face with your mention of both Vice2 (I need to haul it out and use it more; Strike is the shadow that made me fall in love with gold shadows). And Stila’s In the Garden – talk about bliss. I have that one and also “In the Light” and how I wish they’d go back to those and to their wonderful singles.

Skin tone/coloring: Light, neutral skin tone, green eyes, s&p hair

Look you loved this week: EYES: ColourPop Just My Luck palette (Charmed in crease, Mary Jane on lid, So-So on outer V), ColourPop Precision Brow Colour in Cool Cocoa, Urban Decay 24/7 Glide-On Eyeliner in Stash on bottom lashline, Tarte Lights Camera Lashes Mascara.
FACE: Estée Lauder Double Wear Makeup, Lancôme Effacernes Concealer, RCMA No Color Powder, Clinique Cheek Pop in Peach.
LIPS: MAC Lipstick in Tres Blasé.

Any new or old favorites discovered? ColourPop’s Just My Luck palette. I had given up on green shadow months ago, but I decided on a whim to try Just My Luck this week and was happy with the results, which surprised me. I like the pairing of green eyeshadow with peachy cheeks and lips.

Any product you’re hoping to use next week? Continue using my neglected palettes.

Your skin tone/coloring: fair/cool skin (foundation matches: Fenty Pro Filt’r 110, Urban Decay All Nighter 2.5, NARS Natural Radiant Longwear 2.0 Mont Blanc, Kevyn Aucoin The Etherealist Light EF 02, L’Oreal True Match C3 Creamy Natural), gray eyes, brown hair with red highlights and scattered blonde/blue strands
Look you loved this week?: I tried a pink cheek, red lip, and pink/brown eye look on Tuesday and I think it turned out really well: Fenty Pro Filt’r 110 Instant Retouch concealer and Soft Matte foundation and Amber Match Stix as cheek contour, Tarte Dollface blush, Becca Light Chaser Rose Quartz Flashes Seashell highlighter, Huda Ruby Obsessions 6 (brown shimmer) all over lid and under eye, Huda Ruby Obsessions 5 (shimmer billed as violet-red, but I think it looks more pink) on browbone, Rouge Louboutin mascara, UDxGoT Daenerys lipstick.
Any new or old favorites discovered?: Not this week.
Any product you’re hoping to use next week?: I’m going to be adding the Neutrogena sunscreen stick and L’Oreal Revitalift hyaluronic and glycolic acids purchased this week to my skincare routine tonight. Skincare routine changes take several weeks to take full effect, but hopefully I’ll start to see results next week!
