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!

Look you loved this week?: I dusted off my Menagerie Cosmetics Pastel Pup palette last week and created a look. It was full of mishaps, but I really liked the end result. Here’s the link if you want to see!

Any new or old favorites discovered?: I discovered I need to revert back to an old eyeshadow technique to help with creases in my outer corner!

Any product you’re hoping to use next week?: I hope my BH Cosmetics Naughty palette finally gets to me so I can use it!

Your skin tone/coloring: above
Look you loved this week?: I did a super bold glam eye look using Terra Moons Snow Globe shadow on the lid, with darker colors from The Berries palette by Juvia’s Place and some Ardell natural lashes. Loved it!! Wore it with concealer, Bare Minerals Complexion Rescue all over my face and Hourglass Primal lip gloss.
Any new or old favorites discovered?: The Terra Moons was brand new to me!
Any product you’re hoping to use next week?: Just any of my new products!

Your skin tone/coloring: under my name; brown hair
Look you loved this week?: Bare Minerals Warmth bronzer as an eyeshadow to outer crease and outer “v”, blended with Strange (UD 3) to brow bone and rest of the eye, Trick (UD 3) to center of lid and then Reindeer Paws (TF Gingerbread Spice) as an eyeliner. Neutral/bronze cheeks (Chanel Soleil cream bronzer) with a pop of pink (the Balm Toile Instain Blush) in imitation of a CT blush. This is going to be a very quick easy go-to look.

Any new or old favorites discovered?: Bare Minerals Warmth bronzer (now an eyeshadow) and the Reindeer paws eyeshadow as an eyeliner.

I also Swapped out the XOXO palette I have been playing with for Dec/January with the ABH Rivera Palette.

Any product you’re hoping to use next week?: The Rivera palette. And keep working on that UD 3 palette (all. year. long).

Look you loved this week?: Well, with all my new palettes, I have had a fun time this week! Look 1 – I used the Opal Rose shade over the lid, Rose Rocked on the lower mobile lid (from Smashbox’s Petal Metal) and used PMG’s Lapis Luxury on the lashline for a soft rose gold/navy eye look and paired it with Maybelline’s Mauve for Me lipstick.
Look 2 – I did a tonal eye look with Lorac’s Noir palette – Whisper on the lid, Primrose on the mobile lid and Silver Moon on the lash line and paired it with Sephora’s Festival Lights lipstick.
Very happy with all of my new purchases.

Any new or old favorites discovered?: Just playing with my new purchases – Lorac Noir, Smashbox Petal Metal and combining them with shades from other palettes.

Any product you’re hoping to use next week?: More of above.

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

Look you loved this week?: I did a very sparkly pink look with ND Love that I liked a lot, and an equally sparkly look using both ND Mini Sunset and Mini Gold that was fabulous as well. I still think Pat is my favorite for luxury eyeshadow, but I am growing to love ND more and more.

Any new or old favorites discovered?: Rediscovered Illamasqua Tremble blush, Japnoesque Kumadori highlight (RIP!!!). The aforementioned Natasha Denona stuff is definitely the best of the new favorites that I have found recently.

Any product you’re hoping to use next week?: Sydney Grace singles, Juvia’s Masquerade mini for eyes, Bare Minerals Bounce & Blur blushes for cheeks
