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: ^

Product you couldn’t put down this month? Holy Snails facial mist. It really normalizes the skin.

Favorite eye product this month? Anastasia Buon Fresco e/s. I love shades pinky browns like it or MAC Haux for the crease/transition. So soft and beautiful.

Favorite lip product this month? MAC All Fired Up. It’s one of my usuals, but Manon in British Bake Off wore it and she rekindled my appreciation. I couldn’t take my eyes off her lips, googled the color, then found out I already owned it loooool

Your skin tone/coloring: Next to my name! (Blue-green eyes)

Product you couldn’t put down this month? Lancome Cils Booster every single time I wore mascara! Dang, that stuff works!

Favorite eye product this month? All the green eyeshadows! In every conceivable tone I own. Mustard tones, too.

Favorite lip product this month? Glossy topcoats have been getting loads of love from me this past month. Whether it’s a bright shade like MAC Cherry Mochi or Motor City, or something more subtle like Fenty Gloss Bombs in Fu$$y or Universal, I’ve been loving how they look and feel over most of my lipsticks.

Skin tone / coloring . Medium tan with neutral undertones
Favorite product this month ? Guerlain L’ Essentiel Foundation. In 4 N
Favorite eye product, I’m loving Charlotte Tillbury’s new mascara “Volume 2”
Favorite Lip both Pupa Volume lipstick in Coral Blush ( 601) and alternating with
Tom Ford Ultra Rich lipstick in Le Mepris

Favorite lip product.

Skintone/Coloring: Fairly light, very neutral; Mediterranean features.

Couldn’t Put Down: Urban Decay Naked Reloaded; I’ve had a few interviews the last month, and this palette is just so easy to use, and there’s no way to overdo it. I’m looking into restaurant work, so I need to keep things very subtle…

Eye Product: No 7 Lift & Luminate Eye Cream; I bought it on a whim, not expecting anything more than a bit of extra moisture, but it’s really making a difference in lifting/contouring, although I’m not finding much in terms of moisture… I had a pretty intense crease on my left eyelid from sleeping on that side, but it’s nearly completely gone, and doing a winged liner is so much easier now.

Lip Product: Wet n Wild Liquid Catsuit High Shine lipstick; I’m in love with the formula, and while I do have several shades, I’ve been particularly obsessed with the 2 from the Rebel Rose collection, especially Petal Poison, which coordinates so well with the UD Naked Reloaded palette, and tarte Paaarty blush.

P.s.
I sent an email to HourGlass this morning asking when the “Unreal High Shine Volumizing Lip Gloss “ that Christine featured a day or so ago will be at Sephora ( thinking about the 20% off sale) and got word May 3.rd .
I’m sure Christine will have a link .
