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: EYES: UD Naked3 palette (Factory on lid, Nooner in crease, and Strange on brow bone), Urban Decay 24/7 Glide-On Eye Pencil in Smog on outer lower lash line, Cover Girl Clump Crusher Mascara, and Benefit Goof Proof Brow and Precisely My Brow Pencils (one to shape, the other to fill in). FACE: Estée Lauder Double Wear Makeup, Laura Mercier Translucent Loose Powder, Tarte Paaarty Blush, Laura Mercier Baked Bronzer 02. LIPS: Guerlain KissKiss Lipstick in Crazy Nude.

Any new or old favorites discovered: I received Kiehl’s Calendula Herbal Extract Toner as a gift last year and put it in a drawer and forgot about it. I just found it a few days ago when I was looking for something else, so I’ve been using it all week. I don’t know if it will make a real difference in my skin, but it smells nice and I like the way my skin feels after I apply it at night.

Any product you’re hoping to use next week? I’m hoping to create some new looks using MAC singles Twinks, Cranberry, and Woodwinked.

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

Look you loved this week?: Yesterday, when I used two new MAC goodies!
Eyes: MAC Soft Brown transition, Folie to define crease, Sand Tropez Foiled Eyeshadow all over mobile lid and lower lashline, ABH X Jackie Aina Soleil in my inner lid, my usual Smashbox Fishnet Always On Eye Pencil on upper tightline and outer lower lashline, Sephora Contour Pencil in Cocoa on inner lower lashline, L’Oreal Lash Paradise wp mascara.
Cheeks: UD Jawbone, ColourPop Clock Work shades mixed together as my blush, UD Now’s The Time Highlighter.
Lips: Nyx Ever SLP and MAC Would Rather Lounge Lipglass.

Any new or old favorites discovered?: Coppery toned EVERYTHING! Totally loved yesterday’s monochromatic copper look.

Any product you’re hoping to use next week?: Yes, next up, Marc Jacobs Enamored Gloss in Forbidden Fruit in some look I do! After receiving some inspiration from your Coloured Raine quads, I’m feeling like doing something green or teal centered.

Your skin tone/coloring: pale, cool
Look you loved this week?: tinted sunscreen, concealer, UDPP, ABH Gleam on lids, Natasha Denona Lodge in crease, GOSH Metallic Brass (an oldie but a goodie) to line, MAC Sweet Sentiment Blush, MAC Full Fuchsia lipstick
Any new or old favorites discovered?: Oh yeah – a real oldie from Tarte – the Aqualilies palette (eyeshadows, blush, highligher and bronzer) – it’s so good and I so wish they’d re-release it, even with a different name if there are copyright issues.
Any product you’re hoping to use next week?: That Tarte Aqualilies palette and rms beauty Buriti bronzer.

Skin tone/coloring: light/medium, neutral undertone

Look you loved this week: I barely wore makeup this week but when I did, rms Buriti Bronzer as my bronzer AND blush, in a bit of a wave pattern across the cheeks and lightly over the nose too. LOVED IT!!!

Any new or old favorites discovered?: rms rose champagne luminizer, love how dewy and glossy my skin looked

Your skin tone/colouring: Porcelain, with pink undertones

Look you loved this week?: I used the Maybelline Burgundy Bar shades of Champagne all over the eye lid, with the soft taupe on the lower lid, darker taupe in the crease, gold in the corners and rhaspberry in the centre of the mobile lid for a pop of colour. I paired it with CP’s Liquid Courage – which wears as a berry shade on me.

Any new or old favorites discovered?: Maybelline’s Burgundy Bar. The champagne and soft gold shades are gorgeous.

Any product you’re hoping to use next week?: Probably Chanel’s Tisse D’Automne and Huda’s Smokey Obsessions.

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

Look you loved this week?: I did a really beautiful bronzy (for me, lol) look using the L’Oreal Infallible Eyeshadow in Amber Rush. It was so long since I used that amazing eyeshadow and it is so stunning.

Any new or old favorites discovered?: I’m back on the Missha M Perfect Cover BB Cream train. I go through periods with this, where it just stops looking nice on my skin, so I have to step away from it for a while, but when I come back it looks nice again.

Any product you’re hoping to use next week?: Not sure yet, but I’m sure it will come to me.
