Best Products of the Week | Vol. 360

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: Light neutral skin tone, green eyes, almost-black hair with natural silver highlights

What was your favorite makeup look you wore this past week?
• EYES: Primed with MAC Painterly. I used Give Me Glow eyeshadows: Grunge Lavender on lid and crease, Cruel Intentions on outer V, and Beach Bum on inner corners and brow bone. Then smudged UD 24/7 pencil in Alkaline on my bottom lash line. Cover Girl Clump Crusher Waterproof Mascara, Benefit Goof Proof in Grey to fill in brows, and Benefit Precisely My Brow in Grey to define the brow tails.• FACE: Estée Lauder Double Wear Makeup in Sand, Lancome Effacernes Waterproof Concealer in Light Buff, Revlon Colorstay Pressed Powder in Light, and Clinique Cheek Pop in Rosy Pop.• LIPS: MAC liquid lipstick in Burnt Spice (dabbed sparingly onto my lips, then spread using my finger)

What was the hero product of the week for you? Give Me Glow eyeshadows, especially Grunge Lavender, which is such a perfect shade for green eyes. It pairs beautifully with Cruel Intentions. These are my first Give Me Glow eyeshadows and they are wonderful to work with. Mushroom doesn’t really match the other three shades I bought, so I’m going to buy another shade to take its place in the palette and start a whole new palette with shades that match Mushroom. Lol…it never ends, does it?

Any products you want to use next week? I want to do an eye look using some of my seldom used MAC shimmer shades, like Woodwinked.

Your skin tone/coloring: pale, cool
What was your favorite makeup look you wore this past week?: just yesterday I wore Urban Decay Stray Dog all over the mobile lid with the matte light brown #2 from Huda Beauty’s Jaguar palette. Sephora Cappuccino to line and I even wore mascara! MAC Into the Pink on cheeks and MAC Craving on lips. It was Orange Shirt Day in Canada and at my school and I was pleased that nothing on my face actually clashed with my orange shirt.
What was the hero product of the week for you?: Probably Hourglass Ambient Powder (Incandescent? one of the lightest shades though I can never remember the name). A light dusting after my moisturizer and sunscreen means that when I apply blush, it goes on smoothly rather than sticking to my moisturized skin where I first touch the brush to my face. Any powder would work but the Hourglass one is the one I have nearest at hand.
Any products you want to use next week?: More of the Huda Jaguar palette and also the lovely, autumnal Showmance trio from Smashbox.

Nomad Fêtes de Provence Palette: Cote D’Azua (crease), Bunches-Du-Rhône (inner half of lid), Savon De Marseilles (outer half of lid), Hautes-Alpes (lightly blended into deep crease; reverse cat eye), and Fleur De Mimosa (inner corner).

UD Vice Hydrating Lipstick in Gridlock. Fantastic color and incredible staying power. Wears off evenly. I really like this formula and wish UD had made at least a few funky colors.
Now that I won’t sweat off my eye makeup, Nomad Monteverde Cloud Forest Palette and Lethal Cosmetics 1Up Palette.

I’m surprised that you rated the lilac euphoria blush so highly, and that you didn’t include the Pat McGrath palette. I thought that the blush was too intense and the texture didn’t look right. I don’t think it was your application, but the product. I thought the PMG palette was gorgeous 🥰💜✨
