Best Products of the Week | Vol. 286

Hope your weekend is starting off on the right note! Every Saturday, I like to share the top 10 products from the last week of reviews. It’s a nice way to highlight what reviews have been published recently. Similarly, I love reading–and I know others enjoy sharing!–their own “week in review” when it comes to what makeup/beauty products they may have used and/or enjoyed.

What was your week in review like? Copy and paste the lil’ survey below and share your answers in the comments 🙂

  • Your skin tone/coloring:

  • Any new or old favorites discovered?:
  • Any product you’re hoping to use next week?:


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!

Your skin tone/colouring: Porcelain, with pink undertones

Look you loved this week?: I pulled out Naked 1 this week and did a lovely eye look with Half Baked on the lid, Smog on the lower lid and the darker brown shade next to the lash line and paired it with MAC Chili lipstick.

Any new or old favorites discovered?: Naked 1 – Smog and Toasted are still perfect eyeshadow shades

Any product you’re hoping to use next week?: I’m on a roll – Nakeds 2 & 3!

For the life of me, I just don’t understand WHY UD discontinued the best (IMO) of the Naked Palettes – 1, 2 and Smokey. Yes, a lot of makeup loving people already own at least one of them but there are always new makeup lovers coming along AND there are folks like us who might like to be able to replace one of them that’s had heavy use (for good reason) and is almost gone… I would think there would still be a market for some of the “originals” instead of all this dreadful stuff they’ve released lately…

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

Look you loved this week?: I loved two looks this week! One with the CP/Hellow Kitty Snow Much Fun palette and my favorite red lip, and the other a graphic(ish) liner look with the ND Circo Loco palette. Here are the links if you want to see!

Any new or old favorites discovered?: The Becca Dewing Skin Tint. I’ve used it every day for the last couple of weeks (mixed with my Missha M Perfect Cover BB Cream bc the shade was slightly too dark and peachy for me) and it’s so beautiful!

Any product you’re hoping to use next week?: Not in particular! I would like to go through my collection and do a declutter.

Your skin tone/coloring:Fair to light
Look you loved this week?: I tried Clininew serum foundation in ivory. The color was perfect, felt good on my face. Started out loving the look but within a few hours, there was flacking. I think my face is too dry for this product. The second day I added oil to the foundation and got improved results.
Any new or old favorites discovered?: I used to use Smatchbox Oil Primer, but I can no longer find it. I had a sample of the photo-finish primer and used it. Was surprised how well it worked on my face. I think I will have to give this primer a try.
Any product you’re hoping to use next week?: Not sure!
