Best Products of the Week | Vol. 309

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!

Any new or old favorites discovered?: The BH Cosmetics Passion in Paris palette is lovely… the shimmers in that palette are LOVELY.

Happy Birthday Celesta!
I read on your insta post so I really do hope it was a good one.
I love the look. Purple is, you know purple and I love it.

Your skin tone/colouring: Porcelain, with pink undertones

Look you loved this week?: I used the PMG Sublime Mini shades of the Gold Nectar all over the lid, with Sinful on the lower lid and Calming Presence from On the Horizon Light palette on the lasline. I paired it with MAC’s Chili lipstick.

Any new or old favorites discovered?: PMG’s Sublime Mini

Any product you’re hoping to use next week?: Chanel’s Tisse D’Automne, i think needs some love.

Your skin tone/coloring: Above, grey-green eyes, dark brown hair.
Look you loved this week?: I mostly did one and done looks this past week. Yesterday I did a rather nice look using the olive green and the gold from the Clionadh natural bundle, with Green Mist in the inner corner of the eye, SG Beyond sheered out as crease colour and transition, black mascara, CT Pillow Talk light blush and CT Glowing Jen lipstick. I quite liked it, but after some time my lids started itching. Today I tried another eyeshadow from the same bundle and my lids itched again. I used the same mascara so now I have to investigate if it’s the eyeshadows or the mascara. Anyway, I did like the green-gold look.
Any new or old favorites discovered?: New, all my new SG eyeshadows and the ones from Clionadh. Old, nothing this week.
Any product you’re hoping to use next week?: SG X Temptalia, any and all shades in any and all palettes. I do think blue as the blues are the ones I have yet to use, blue scare me 🙂

Your skin tone/coloring: pale, cool
Look you loved this week?: Yesterday, I wanted a very light look on my eyes and took out the VERY old Too Faced Boudoir Eyes palette – In the Buff, Fuzzy Handcuffs and Garter Belt; Sephora Flirting Game (I think) to line and MAC Craving on lips; Becca Camellia on cheeks.
Any new or old favorites discovered?: Tarte for Aqualillies palette
Any product you’re hoping to use next week?: that Tarte for Aqualillies palette. I watched a Wayne Goss tutorial on eyeshadow application for “older eyes” (ahem) and Parasol – a very light and reflective shade – is very much like the highlight colour he used on the mobile lid. I’m going to pair it with 2 shades from the ND Glam 15 pan palette that are similar to the other 2 shades he used on the lids.

Look you loved this week?: I didn’t film this week, so all of my looks have been eyes-only since I wear a mask at work. My favorite has to be Natasha Denona “Zand” all over the lid and “Golden Honey” from the Pat McGrath Rose Decadence palette blended into the inner lid

Any new or old favorites discovered?: I’ve been finding joy combining my various Clionadh singles with my Pat McGrath Rose Decadence palette

Any product you’re hoping to use next week?: I’m hoping to dive back into the Huda Mauve Obsessions palette, as I’ve been contemplating including it in an upcoming Project Pan

YOUR SKIN TONE/COLORING: Under my name; cherry cola hair with a violet tint; hazel/green eyes.

LOOK YOU LOVED THIS WEEK?: EYES — TFSI. Made by Mario Glam Eyeshadow Quad in Party Glam — #4/matte teal (outer corner), #3/chartreuse shimmer (inner 2/3 crease), #1/teal shimmer (outer 1/3 of crease, blended into #3 to make green in the center crease; lower lash line).
