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: fair/ cool, black hair, grey eyes

Look you loved this week?: I did a combination with Natasha Denona Zendo and Pat McGrath MTHRSHP Rose Decadence that I really liked.

Any new or old favorites discovered?: I did a big order from Sephora for the first time in ages during their sale so it’s been all about trying new products for me this week. Aside from the two palettes mentioned above, I also tried Kosas lipstick for the first time and I’m in love. Rosewater has immediately become my holy grail MLBB shade.

Any product you’re hoping to use next week?: Doing an order always gets me excited to try new looks, so I’m just going to ride that. I picked up the Viseart Dark and Aerosol Spritz edit palettes and I expect those to feature pretty prominently.

Your skin tone/coloring: Under my name.

Look you loved this week?: It was pretty much my standard look but for my eyes I used the new Hatch e/s from Ilia. I love the green/gold colour and although this one is a little more subdued than the Silkspun Green/Gold by Shiseido, which is no longer available, I still love it. I used the shadow as a one shade eye look with the exception of using a flat matte cream under the brow. I can’t actually remember which shade I used but it was definitely a MUG shadow. My base was the Estee Lauder Futurist Hydra Foundation in the shade 1N0 Porcelain. I used the By Terry Hyaluronic powder. I used the Ilia lipstick in 99 Balloons which is another favorite red colour lipstick but I just patted it on rather than applying with the bullet. I used the 99 Balloons as my blush, again just tapping it on. I really loved the look. It was simple and understated but totally me.

Any new or old favorites discovered?: I can see myself wearing Hatch a lot this year.

Any product you’re hoping to use next week?: Nothing in particular. I am not planning too far in advance these days.

Your skin tone/colouring: Porcelain, with pink undertones

Look you loved this week?: Using Naked 2 – I had my favourite YDK on the whole lid, with the grey shade Pistol on the lower lid. For the pop of colour, I used PMG’s Lapis Luxury. I paired it with Maybelline’s Mauve for Me lipstick – which I accidentally picked up during a Chemist sale and love the muted shade.

Any new or old favorites discovered?: Naked 2.

Any product you’re hoping to use next week?: As my birthday is coming up next Friday (Aus time), I will no doubt be in the land of ND’s Glam palette – which my son purchased for me for my birthday.

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

Look you loved this week?: I did a purple look, using the Kaleidos Makeuo Lunar Lavender palette that I loved so much! It’s linked if you want to see it.

Any new or old favorites discovered?: I can officially say that the BH Cosmetics Blueberry Muffin palette has become one of my favorite palettes. It is so good, the mattes are pigmented and blendable, the metallics are so glitzy and shiny, and it’s super affordable. It’s an unexpected gem of a palette.

Any product you’re hoping to use next week?: My Juvia’s Place Wahala 2 palette and ND Triochrome palette are supposed to come in this week, so I will be using those.

Look you loved this week?: I used the California Love palette starting with The Bay all over the lid, and then blended Mission into the outer lid. I then smudged Surfrider into the outer part of the lower lashline. I went over it with Marc Jacobs Highliner in Blacquer and ABH Brow Wiz for the brows. For my face I used the bronzer from the Tarte 101 Blush Palette, Colourpop Pressed Powder Blush in “Good Luck Charm”, and the Fenty Killawatt Freestyle Highlighter in “Hu$tla Baby”. For lips I wore the NYX Lip Lingerie in “Ruffle Trim”. I was actually so proud of this look I made the rare move of posting it on my personal Instagram:

Any new or old favorites discovered?: I’ve been loving the blush in the Memebox I’m Meme Multicube in “All About Apple Red”. It’s a bold, bright red in the pan but goes on quite subtle on the skin. Memebox is the same brand that makes Kaja at Sephora, and I’m curious if there’s a dupe within the Kaja brand as Memebox products now take longer to get from overseas due to the current situation

Any product you’re hoping to use next week?: I’m planning on using the Colourpop The Child palette again tomorrow

Your skin tone/coloring: pale, cool, hair getting grayer (by design)
Look you loved this week?: Can’t really think of anything that stood out, though I did use my Pat McGrath Bronze Ambition 6 pan shadow palette yesterday for the first time in ages
Any new or old favorites discovered?: Tarina Tarantino (there’s a blast from the past brand!) Emerald Pretty palette. Dandy Lion, Ozma and, in the crease and outer corner, that very dark but very blendable Sawdust Heart. I guess that might have been the look I liked best this week (I also wore IT CC cream for the first time in a loooong time)
Any product you’re hoping to use next week? Genevieve’s mention of Naked2 has me thinking I should take mine out for a spin. I also want to find my Nuxe Reve de Miel lip balm pot – I’ve stashed it somewhere and want to start using it, if only to use it up.
