Best Products of the Week | Vol. 317

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!

Your skin tone/coloring: pale, cool
What was your best look you wore this past week?: busy week at home and quite a few days at this gym so I can’t really remember anything outstanding
What product made you happiest to wear this week?: Sephora’s Micro Smooth powder. A really quick and easy way to get lovely looking skin
Any products you want to use next week?: the Charlotte Tilbury The Rebel palette. It’s so perfect for this time of year.

Your skin tone/coloring: NC15, Mac describes it as fair with a golden undertone. I call it fair and ivory or the shade people become when they see a ghost or get sick (that’s me when I forget to put some blush on)!

What was your best look you wore this past week?: McQueen brow pencil. Mac Rebel. Eyes: (all from Sydney Grace) Mellow Yellow lid inner part of lid, Beaches mid lid, San Jose on crease, Pismo outter V, Dream Big tightline & eyeliner, Hidden Treasure tearduct corner & a bit on mid lid, Turtle Doves & Pismo below outer lower lash. MAC orb on brow bone. Face: The Body Shop Drops of Glow illuminator on top of cheeks, Cupid’s bow and darker parts of nose and cheeks, Studio fix over it. A’PIEU Juicy-Pang Blusher. Under eyes: BB “the works” and MAC prep+prime. Used Shiseido Curler & Maybelline the colossal waterproof. I also used a light MAC eyeshadow as a base on my eyelid but I deppoted it and I don’t know the name. ISDIN sunscreen brush over the lot!

What product made you happiest to wear this week?: Lipstick in general, Burberry Nude Pink and Devon Sunset in particular but I wish they’d last longer. I have to reapply often so I often swap colours, because… why not? MAC Haux (deserves an honorable mention)- it has the uncanny ability to take a look out of the gutter!

Any products you want to use next week?: Burberry Military Red, I haven’t worn it once since buying it as I’m not that keen on the colour (very Russian Red) so I feel I need to get some mileage out of it. MAC Ruby Woo because I love it, it makes me happy and I haven’t worn it in ages. I have quite an assortment of primers and I’ll either wear them or chuck them in the bin. I would reeeally like to be able to use the UD Naked 3 palette because that would mean I got it! (*happy dance*) We’ll see how the week goes!

Your skin tone/colouring: Porcelain, with pink undertones

What was your best look you wore this past week?: I really love the look I created with Dior’s 3 Colouers trio – the Antique gold on the whole lid, the olive green shade on the mobile lid and the olive brown next to the lashline and I paired it with MAC’s Chili lipstick.

What product made you happiest to wear this week?: I think PMG’s Sublime Mini, which I used a couple of days, wearing different shades on each day – Gold Nectar and Sextrovert with Blue Blood and on another Sinful with Sextrovert and Lapis Luxury.

Any products you want to use next week?: Naked 2 and 3.

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

What was your best look you wore this past week?: Definitely a spooky batwing look I did; here’s the link if you want to see! https://www.instagram.com/p/CVVXbslre9h/?utm_medium=copy_link

What product made you happiest to wear this week?: I’ve been playing with my Natasha Denona palettes a lot this week which made me really happy. I love her formula so much.

Any products you want to use next week?: My Terra Moons Fall Equinox shadows should be in Monday, so I can’t wait to play with those!

Your skin tone/coloring: above, grey-green eyes, dark brown hair
What was your best look you wore this past week?: I think I only used makeup twice last week, once it was MAC Feast Your Eyes, I used the brown in the crease and on the outer v blended quite a bit up toward the brow and the gold, (champagne) on the lid, blended into the brown. I used one of the lightest shades from Viseart Cool Neutrals on the brow bone. I think I added some of the copper from the eyeshadow palette on the lower lash line, brown eyeliner. I can’t recall the lipstick, some warm red, I think.
Yesterday I tried the Orchid You Not, but I only did a very quick one and done, using the top left shade over the mobile lid, I added a bit of Venus Slipper under the lower lashes and Dancing Lady on the lips. I also added some of the body powder highlighter as blush. I’ve no idea how it looked in daylight, I did this quick look in the evening.
What product made you happiest to wear this week?: MAC Feast Your Eyes, it’s more versatile than I thought. My first impression with it wasn’t good, now I love it.
Any products you want to use next week?: PMG, the new mega Celestial palette, I hope it’ll arrive soon. If not Smashbox Minimalist(?), warmly recommended by Mariella, also on it’s way here.
