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!

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

Look you loved this week: ColourPop Tide Pool (from Blue Moon Palette) on lid, MAC Haux in crease, Urban Decay 24/7 Glide-On Eye Pencil in Mushroom on lower lashline, Cover Girl Clump Crusher Mascara, Benefit Precisely My Brow. FACE: Estée Lauder Double Wear Makeup, Tarte Paaarty Blush, Clinique Dramatically Different Lipstick in Canoodle.

Any new or old favorites discovered: Just the fun of doing experimental makeup looks for Zoom meetings!

Any product you’re hoping to use next week? Playing with more of the eye shadow colors I rarely use.

I just want to add a quick comment about the video loops of tips and hacks that show up on this website. Not only are they annoying and distracting, they contain some of the most mind-numbingly stupid ideas I’ve ever seen! Do people actually take these seriously?

Your skin tone/colouring: Porcelain, with pink undertones

Look you loved this week?: I did a neutral kind of gold eye look using my Pixi Beauty Reflex Light palette – with Nude Lustre on the lid, Cocoa Glaze on the lower lid and Antique Bronze in the crease. I also added a dash of the olive green shade Eureka from Soft and Smokey (bareMinerals) and paired it with CP’s Foolish lipstick.

Any new or old favorites discovered?: No real discoveries, just having fun.

Any product you’re hoping to use next week?: Well, I am going to Sephora today….maybe I will see something that I will love and that is affordable…

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

Look you loved this week?: Our weekly challenge for the Phyrra FB group was to recreate one of Phyrra’s tutorials, and I chose a beautiful turquoise and chartreuse one using MUG Power Pigments. I don’t have those, so I made substitutions, but I still think I nailed it. This is her original look: https://phyrra.net/makeup-geek-power-pigments-tutorial.html

EYES: TFSI. Nomad Kakigori from the Harajuku Palette (crease, fading up toward the brow), Coloured Raine Vivid Pigment in Neo Blue mixed with ColourPop Tide Pool (crease, outer 1/3 of lower lashline), CR VP in Yacht Life (outer V and crease, upper lash line), and ColourPop Mary Jane (inner 2/3 lid; outer 2/3 of lower lash line). LORAC I Love Brunch HL in Limelight (brow bone, inner corner). UD 24/7 Eye Pencil in Perversion (upper waterline) and Post Punk (lower waterline). BROWS: Powder side of e.l.f. Eyebrow Kit in Medium. LIPS: BH Cosmetics Waterproof Lip Liner in Muse and Wayne Goss The High Shine Gloss in Chrysanthemum. CHEEKS — Physician’s Formula Butter Blush in Plum Rose. FACE — AOA No Pore Face Primer; Milani Conceal + Perfect Foundation Stick in Porcelain; e.l.f. HD Powder in Sheer; L.A. Girl Just Blushing Blush in Just Because… (as contour); City Color Cosmetics Intense Exposure Highlighting Powder; DIY setting spray.

Any new or old favorites discovered?: I’m really liking the L.A. Girl Just Blushing in Just Because… as a contour shade. It’s the perfect color, and it blends more easily than Sephora Tranquil. I bought a couple backups when Tranquil was DC’d, but it’s nice to have another option.

Any product you’re hoping to use next week?: Whatever I can from the new stuff I’ve been hauling!

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

Look you loved this week?: I didn’t wear makeup for half the week because I was too focused on our second go at potty training my son, but here’s what I wore after that mental marathon:

I didn’t particularly love any of the looks I did this week, but that was the look I liked best of what I did do.

Any new or old favorites discovered?: not that I can think of! Just continuing favorites week to week.

Any product you’re hoping to use next week?: I’m really enjoying my collection.
