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!

Patrick Ta Blush Monochrome moment velvet blush in She’s Sincere. This is the original formula and after 4 years I just hit hard pan. The newest versions all seem to have issues. Lisa Eldridge’s Elevated Glow Highlighter in Pink Moon. I am almost done with the Crystal Nebula which leans an odd yellow. I add this to blush or foundation and it adds a beautiful glow. Wayne Goss lipstick, repurposed, just received Nutmeg(a hideous shade of cantelope) and decided to try it on my cheeks. It was beautiful- a gorgeous balm like finish —and the color lasted for the day. RMS Hydra Powder in French Rose. I am looking for a cruelty free version of NARS liquid blush(orgasm or torrid). Any good dupes?

If its just blush, I’m really liking the RMS Beauty French Rose blush, Hourglass Ambient blush in Sublime Flush, PML Cherish, Wayne Goss Blush Peony and my old standby Laura Mercier Strawberry!
If I can include a highlighter I’m really liking the new Rare Beauty Mesmerize….

This one is hard…

theBalm Fratboy
theBalm Mary-lou highlighter powder
Nars Orgasm powder blush
MAC Glow Play That’s Peachy blush
MAC Mineralize Skinfinish Give Me Sun

I just bought 3 shades of the Rare Beauty blush and I hope I love them as much as the hype! Maybe a future favorite?

1. Nars Powder Blush in Amour
2. Nars Powder Blush in Impassioned
3. Kevin Aucoin Sculpting Contour Powder in Light
4. Laura Mercier Matte Radiance Baked Powder Compact in Highlight 01
5. Nars Powder Blush in Madly (I use as bronzer)

My favorite highlighter is Becca Berlin Girl Glow, but that was limited edition and Becca is defunct anyway. I really wish Laura Mercier would do more shades of that beautiful highlighter formula!

Guerlain Terracotta Healthy Glow bronzer, Buxom Seychelles, Nars Gaiety, Natasha Denona Super Glow in Fair and Laura Mercier Devotion.
If Becca was still in business, Pearl and Berlin Girl Glow would replace the ND and LM highlighters.

1.) Nars Afterglow palette
2.) Huda Beauty Glowing Bronzer in Tan Light
3.) ABH Amrezy highlighter (yes, I realize that this more like a fantasy because it was LE and I cannot stand the owner, but this is my all-time favorite highlighter!)
4.) My Lethal Cosmetics duo palette of Ornamental and Floret
5.) Nars Fetishized blush (again, I have a feeling that this too is LE, but fantasy!)

My cheek favourites are:
The Balm’s Hot Mama
Clinique’s Melon Pop
and that’s about it!
I am looking at everyone’s favourite’s here and deciding which ones I will give a go to. So many of them are either not available here or I can only get them online. Blush is something that I do need to see for myself.
