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!

Christine, ive been thinking of you and your family after the loss of Mellan. Ive been reading your blog daily since 2009 and I feel like I almost knew Mellan. Grief can come in waves and its not linear, so we would understand if you need to take some time now and then. Sending you so much love.

Your skin tone/coloring: pale, cool
Look you loved this week?: hmmm…I went for a Covid test this morning (I started having symptoms; could be nothing more than a bad cold, could be the start of pneumonia, which I’ve had twice before or could be Covid) and liked my eye look – Dior Jungle #2 all over mobile lid, Natasha Denona “Blend” (middle row, 2nd from left in 15 pan Glam palette – STUPID naming system) in crease, UD Corrupt to line. I used my new Smashbox primer over my moisturizer on my forehead just because/absolutely no reason/just felt like it
Any new or old favorites discovered?: The other day, I used an old Lise Watier pencil liner in (I think) Bleu Noir and now I’m thinking I want to get a few of the newer shades – maybe Raisin Bleu
Any product you’re hoping to use next week: Nothing really comes to mind but my lovely newer Dior 5-pans both deserve more attention than they’ve been getting!

Oh Mariella, I sincerely hope you don’t have Covid, but it was a good idea to have the test and be sure. It’s not an easy test to have is it? I just about gagged when the nurse stuck the test swab down my throat the last time I had it. And as it’s your winter, it’s pretty easy to catch colds and so on.
I am totally sure you had the best eye look of anyone who was tested today!
Take care.

It’s not nearly as bad as I thought it was though here, the test is done as a nasal swab (actually, it’s more like they’re going up into your brain via your nose!). My husband has had quite a few of them (because of surgeries, hospital admissions, a visit with his mom in a seniors’ residence, etc.) and said they were painful but I was surprised by how quick and relatively painLESS it was. The worst of my “symptoms” (this cough and chest congestion) seem to be abating so even if I have it, I’m likely over the worst (still don’t have my results yet). ‘course, it wasn’t possible to check out anyone else’s makeup as there was almost no one there (so no waiting at all, which was an added bonus). Thank you for your good wishes, Genevieve!

Oh I hope you are Covid free. I had a fever last week took an Advil and it went away and I have no other symptoms so I guess it was something else, and my husband had that fever in September that lasted 2 days then nothing, so hopefully you will be ok! Like Genivieve said you would have had the best eye look going for the test! Good luck you’re in my thoughts!

Your skin tone/colouring: Porcelain, with pink undertones

Look you loved this week?: I used the ND Glam this week – with the champagne tones on the whole lid, with the soft neutral brown shade on lower lid and a darker taupe on the lashline. I complemented it with EA’s Goldmine lipstick – a bit of a berry shade.

Any new or old favorites discovered?: Just rumaging through my lipstick bag, digging out shades I haven’t worn for awhile, like EA’s Goldmine.

Any product you’re hoping to use next week?: Just chugging along, picking out something different every other day.

Your skin tone/coloring: above by my name, hazel eyes, brown hair.
Look you loved this week?: I didn’t go out so no makeup, I wish I had some on when I answered the door today when the young handsome police came to take my statement for the break and enter we had.
Any new or old favorites discovered?: no
Any product you’re hoping to use next week?: I have to go for a mammogram next week, we will see if I put eye makeup on for that! Otherwise all my eye makeup is sitting unused so anything would be fun to use, PMG, Chanel I love them all.

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

Look you loved this week?: I got to play a lot with my Clionadh Multichromes and my PMGL Interstellar Icon palette this week and I loved these two looks the best!
