Best Products of the Week | Vol. 308

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!

Look you loved this week?: A couple of days this week, during our severe lockdown, I used my original Naked 1 eyeshadows of Half Baked (on the whole lid) , Smog/Toasted ( on the lower mobile lid) and paired them with Ambush from Vice 2 (on the upper lashline). I paired it all with varied lipsticks – CP’s Gallop, Foolish or Tea Thyme.

Any product you’re hoping to use next week?: Nakeds 2 & 3.
