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!

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

Look you loved this week?: My very 1st PMG Decadence look blew me away!
MAC Orb browbone, Kid transition, Nylon tearducts, then PMG Underworld outer lid, outer lower lashline and outer crease winged upwards, Lapis Luxury inner lid, inner lower lashline, inner half of crease blended in an arch to meet Underworld, took a chance and applied Sterling on my mid-lid as a halo (had to remove it very carefully at bedtime, though, because of it having sodium saccharine, a sulfa), MAC Blacktrack Fluidline winged upper lashline wing, usual mascara and tightline pencil.
Cheeks: Nyx Taupe, Hourglass Infinite Flush and PMG Fine Gold highlighter.
Lips: Nyx Coffee SLP, PMG Flesh 3 balm, and MAC Marbled Faun Lipglass.

Any new or old favorites discovered?: Uh, pretty obvious that I’ve fallen head over heels for that PITA to get eyeshadow palette, lol!

Any product you’re hoping to use next week? If you guessed PMG Decadence Mothership, then you know it!

Your skin tone/coloring: abooove

Look you loved this week?: my CT Darling Palette along with bright, warm pink blush and a pink lip.

Any new or old favorites discovered?: Been rotating through all my blushes pretty regularly!

Any product you’re hoping to use next week?:

Ilene- fair-light skin ( BB sand), dark green eyes, dark brown hair
Look I loved- I used an Ellis Faas creamy eyes in a dark purple shade as a liner and I was very pleased with the result.
I also tried the Nars tinted glow in the lightest shade and it seems very nice. I used sparingly as I didn’t want to glow in the dark! Rest of look was a tiny bit of the Surratt dewdrop shade 3 but more as a light concealer, I almost never put base all over, Nars luster blush, Nars tinted base in light, Cover girl mascara in the orange tube( this stuff is sooo much better than all the ones I’ve wasted $$on), Nars instant crush lipstick which I bought yesterday and I love it! So that will count as the new and exciting for me.

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

Look you loved this week:
EYES: Benefit Goof Proof Brow Pencil in Gray, Urban Decay 24/7 Glide-On Eyeliner in Sabbath to tightline upper lashline, Laura Mercier Caviar Stick in Burnished Bronze in crease and bottom lashline, MAC Eyeshadow in Grain on lid, Tarte Lights Camera Lashes Mascara.
FACE: Estée Lauder Double Wear Makeup, Lancôme Effacernes Concealer, RCMA No Color Powder, Clinique Cheek Pop in Rosy, Laura Mercier Matte Radiant Baked Highlighter 01 on cheekbones.
LIPS: Estée Lauder Knockout Nude

Any new or old favorites discovered? My MAC single shadows collection. I reorganized all of my single shadows yesterday and I have so many beautiful MAC shades that I never think to wear—e.g. Shale, Quarry, Sumptuous Olive, Satin Taupe, etc.—so I’m going to concentrate on using them this coming week.

Any product you’re hoping to use next week? MAC single shadows (see previous answer).

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

Look you loved this week?: EYES — TFSI. Sydney Grace Matte Shadow in Green Anjo (crease; applied darker in deep crease) and Key Lim (outer 1/3 of lid and lower lashline), PPS in Sweetsop (lid). Medusa’s Makeup Totally Baked Eyeshadow in Bitchin (brow bone; foiled on inner corner). UD 24/7 Eye Pnecil in Perversion (upper and lower waterlines). UD Perversion Mascara. BROWS — ABH Love Letter.

Any new or old favorites discovered?: No

Any product you’re hoping to use next week?: Milani Conceal & Perfect Foundation Stick in Porcelain

Your skin tone/colouring: Porcelain with pink undertones

Look you loved this week?: I used the Pixi Beauty Mixed Metals – the soft gold shade on the lid, with a coppery rose colour on the lower lid, and I used Madness from Vice 2 like an eyeliner on the lower lid.
I paired it with my new Collstar lipstick in Berry.

Any new or old favorites discovered?: I just keep coming back to Vice 2.

Any product you’re hoping to use next week?: More of the Mixed Metals palette and rotating my lipsticks.

Your skin tone/coloring: fair, cool
Look you loved this week?: Sephora Fall Leaves (a dupe for Nars Old Church Street left side) paired with Nars Rue Allent right side, Sephora Diving in Malaysia pencil liner (why, oh, why did they ever d/c that beauty?), MAC Sweet Sentiment blush, Lise Watier powder foundation and MAC Craving on lips
Any new or old favorites discovered?: rediscovering both Nars Rue Allent (it was from the Charlotte Gainsbourg release) and also Chanel Tisse Gabrielle (does anyone know if that’s been discontinued or if it’s still around?)
Any product you’re hoping to use next week?: the Natasha Denona Mini Glam palette and MAC’s IED Rosy Cheeks blush

Your skin tone/coloring: above

Look you loved this week?: I only went grocery shopping so I didn’t do anything special.

Any new or old favorites discovered?: nil

Any product you’re hoping to use next week?: Decandence has finally arrived my city. I hope to have it on Monday. It will be too cold to go outside next week so I can stay in and play with it.

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

Look you loved this week?: I did a pretty look with the Huda Beauty Nude Light Obsessions palette using the purple sparkly shade all over my life, but I think my favorite shade is the darkest shade in the palette… it’s such an unusual mauve-brown. I paired it with a peachy blush to warm things up and a neutral bright red lip. It was very Valentines Day-ee.

Any new or old favorites discovered?: I’m just really enjoying using what I have at the moment.

Any product you’re hoping to use next week?: I am excited to use more of my project pan products!
