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: above with freckles, green/gray/blue eyes, warm brown hair.

Look you loved this week?: I did a single shadow look with Sponsored from the ABH Jackie Aina palette and a minty Christmas look! Here are the links if you want to see!

Any new or old favorites discovered?: Sydney Grace Purple Sky eyeshadow is so beautiful. Also the more I use the ND Triochrome Palette, the more I love it.

Any product you’re hoping to use next week?: I’m hoping to get my GiveMeGlow Sweet & Sticky palette and dive into that this week.

Your skin tone/coloring: pale, cool
Look you loved this week?: Marc Jacobs Brav!O eyeshadow on mobile lid, Nars Stilt House in crease and – by accident – a black Lise Watier liner (I was reaching for my go-to Sephora Cappuccino and grabbed this black liner by mistake) – I liked the look of the black against the golden shadow. I even went so far as to put on mascara, something I rarely do but I’d been discussing mascaras with an online friend. I “glowed” up my face a bit with rms Beauty’s Living Luminizer in the Champagne Rose shade (I think that’s what it’s called) so that the skin showing around/above my mask looked a bit dewy/fresh.
Any new or old favorites discovered?: I got out my old Guerlain Les Fumes quad this past week and rediscovered all over again how lovely it is so it’s become…..the product I’m hoping to use next week
Any product you’re hoping to use next week? Guerlain Les Fumes, Dior’s Celebrate in Gold 5 pan (man, does the message on that palette ever seem ironic, and not in a good way at all) and some liners I’ve not used in a while (Sephora Tango Night, Galaxy Girl, T-Rex)

Your skin tone/colouring: Porcelain, with pink undertones

Look you loved this week?: Nothing too much, as I have had a really bad summer cold (Covid negative), but I did a few looks with my trusty Naked 1 – using Smog, Toasted and a few other shades.

Any new or old favorites discovered?: Naked 1

Any product you’re hoping to use next week?: Hopefully, I will be feeling better by next week to experiment with some more of my stash – Stila In the Garden would be a good one.

I hope you’re over your cold soon, Genevieve. These days, even a “common cold” is scary until you can be sure it’s not the Covid virus.

You always mention favourites of mine – this time, it’s Naked 1 (why, oh why did they ever discontinue it? even if every makeup lover on earth already has one, they’ll need to replenish it one day) and, of course Stila’s In the Garden – what a stunner that is/was.

❄️Your skin tone/coloring: Light neutral
❄️Look you loved this week?: Natasha Denona Trichrome. I love mixing the greens with the purples as both do wonders for my eye colour. I did a simple eye with the trio of Scrap, Manganese and Naga and it looked amazeballs. I am getting much use out of a palette I hesitating buying.
❄️Any new or old favorites discovered?: I purchased Sonia G Smooth Buffer for use with base products and I love it. I was afraid I might find it too small, got tired of waiting for Face One to come back in stock, but the size is perfect as I target apply my foundation in areas I need it most.
❄️Any product you’re hoping to use next week? Nothing pops into mind. I did finally order Hourglass blush in Euphoric Fusion, it’s been on my wishlist forever, and I think it will be arriving.

Your skin tone/coloring: Pale/yellow, dark hair, blue eyes

Look you loved this week?: Green & gold look with UD Overdrive eyeliner. It has been a huge fave for me lately.

Any new or old favorites discovered?: I just rediscovered ABH Amrezy highlight, and my god it is so phenomenal. I can’t believe I just threw it in the drawer for so long. A new-ish fave is L’Occitane Overnight Reset Serum. It is gentle, but it does really help to calm my skin, plus the packaging is just completely gorgeous.

Any product you’re hoping to use next week?: Haus Beauty Grime liner, since I am on a fairly major green kick. I am also trying to incorporate more silver and platinum into my looks, so definitely some of those too. I am thinking something with Cyborg from ABH Sultry and some mauve or purple mattes.

Look you loved this week?: I only wore makeup once this week, I used the Colourpop The Child palette starting with “Little Frog” all over the lid, outlined my crease with “Float Your Crib”, covered the lid with “Sipping Soup”, “Baby Face” to lighten the transition, and finally “Right Hand Mando” as an inner corner highlight. I then went over the look with a the Colourpop creme gel eyeliner in “Juniper”, and topped it off with the Thrive Causemetics mascara and ABH Brow Wiz. For face I used the bronzer from the Tarte Blush 101 Amazonian Clay Blush Palette, the Colourpop Pressed Powder Blush in “Good Luck Charm”, and “Lyra” from the ABH Aurora Glow Kit. For lips I used the MAC Matte Lip Mousse in “My Better Half”

Any new or old favorites discovered?: I’m still loving my Colourpop The Child palette

Any product you’re hoping to use next week?: I’m feeling like playing with my Super Shock Shadows this week
