Best Products of the Week | Vol. 307

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.

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?: it’s been too hot to wear a lot of makeup, so I’ve just been putting on a little eyeliner and mascara
Any new or old favorites discovered?: nope
Any product you’re hoping to use next week?: It’s going to cool down next week I’ll miss the nice hot weather but we really need the rain as I’m sure a lot of places do. I hope to use some of my Temptalia/SG palettes at a small family birthday party we’re throwing for our son next Saturday.

Look you loved this week?: Definitely the one I did using the It’s Freakin’ Bats palette earlier this week! It turned out great! I did a pop of green in the middle and purple all around and loved it!

Any product you’re hoping to use next week?: More of my new Sydney Grace and Shine by SS shadows and my new highlighters from Sydney Grace!

Your skin tone/coloring: You know where to look 🙂 Grey-green eyes, dark brown hair
Look you loved this week?: A very simple one, I used Forget-Her-Not along the upper lash line, in the outer V and along what would be the crease, though hidden by the hoods. On the rest of the mobile lid I used Phosphenes. As transition colour I used Dearest Constant (light). It was simple, but looked quite good. I used a neutral blush and MAC Hey Frenchie lipstick. Around the tear duct I used Becca HL in Pearl.
Any new or old favorites discovered?: Quite a new one to me, MAC Hey Frenchie must be my new go to lipstick, I have used it so many times since I bought it. I love everything about it, colour, texture, finish and it actually lasts really well.
I bought Becca Pearl Highlighter not long ago and I love it. I think the search for go to highlighter is done, at least until I finish this one. It’s perfect for my skin tone. (I just read the review for it, and found my thoughts on the review, it said that it could emphasize pores, so I decided not to get it, obviously I’m better at applying highlighter these days than I was back when it launched. (Late 2015)
Any product you’re hoping to use next week?: Sidney Grace X Temptalia, I have so much fun with the palettes. I love all three, I can’t chose a favourite. Also Hey Frenchie and EL Rebellious Rose lipstick. And Becca Pearl.

Look you loved this week?: I slapped on some of the Sydney Grace “Dear Reader” shade, makes for a great one-and-done look!

Any new or old favorites discovered?: As well as the “Dear Reader” single, I’ve been diving back into my Colourpop Super Shock Shadows

Any product you’re hoping to use next week?: I think I’m going to use one of my Sydney Grace palettes next week, probably Quintessence

Look you loved this week?: I did a really beautiful look using the SG x Temptalia Quintessence Deep palette and a couple Clionadh shadows; Here’s the link if you want to see! https://www.instagram.com/p/CSecQKYL_9U/?utm_medium=copy_link

Any new or old favorites discovered?: The Shroud Cosmetics x Beautbean It’s Freakin’ Bats palette… my past experiences with Shroud weren’t great, but I ordered on a whim during the restock of this palette and I’m so pleased that I got it. The palette is so beautiful and has such a unique color story.

Any product you’re hoping to use next week?: My Lethal x Theresa is Dead palette came in, so I’m very excited to use that!
