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: fair, neutral/cool

Last eyeliner you sharpened? Oh wow. I haven’t worn eyeliner in so long! But odds are good it was Urban Decay Perversion, Rockstar, or Mushroom. If not those shades, then I can say with 100% confidence it was still a UD 24/7 pencil!

Last product you resisted purchasing? I’d like to try the NYX pink corrector stick, but I reminded myself that I have a full pot of the Becca corrector (love it!) and should use that first. Especially since I don’t often bother correcting these days. 🙂

Last product you opened? The Ulta Complexion Crush foundation—just got it today!

Last eyeliner you sharpened? Sephora Cappuccino pencil liner (it’s my every day/go to)
Last product you resisted purchasing? Sephora Best Skin Ever concealer (the lighting in the store was so bad I couldn’t get any sense of a good shade)
Last product you opened? Lise Watier Illuminating Primer (but any minute now I’m going to open the tube of Glossier Cloud Paint in Haze – I just bought it an hour ago).

Your skin tone/coloring: Under my name.
Last eyeliner you sharpened? Renaissance Gold by Lisa Eldridge
Last product you resisted purchasing? So far I have resisted the Chanel 2024 Spring release. I really kind of want the pink/orange palette but I have so many of those shades. I do love the looks I have been seeing with it though. I also like the looks of the lippies they released but I don’t think I am actually going to purchase any of them.
Last product you opened? The Chanel Eclat de Nuit eyeshadow palette a couple of weeks ago.

Your skin tone/coloring: Porcelain, with pink undertones

Last eyeliner you sharpened? I don’t use eyeliner pencils, but I do sharpen my eyebrow pencil.

Last product you resisted purchasing? YSL’s Desert Sun lipstick – it was on sale, but I do have quite a few lipsticks in this shade, but I hope I don’t regret it.

Last product you opened? Skincare wise, it was a jar of Boots No7 Night time moisturising cream, which I have found I love and it works well for me.
Makeup wise, it was Mecca Max’s face primer.- a luxury beauty shop here in Aus – a rival to Sephora. The store has its own range of basic makeup (cruelty free) and I had finished my Nude by Nature Airbrush primer and I don’t really like the new formuations (no surprises there), so I thought I would give the Mecca Max one a try. It wasn’t too expensive. However, it turned out to be fabulous, the one time I have used it. Blended easily into my face and kept my foundation going for the whole day in very warm weather. So far, so good.

Last eyeliner you sharpened? My HG upper tightlining Smashbox Always On Fishnet pencil.

Last product you resisted purchasing? Um… I’m trying so hard not to buy What’s Up Dragon Eye palette and Oden’s Eye palette Earth Wood by Tina from The Fancy Face. It’s getting nearly impossible not to!

Last product you opened? PMG Labs Honey Haze MatteTrance lipstick, and I HATE it. On my complexion, this is pure CONCEALER LIPS. However, with Nyx SLP in Earthtone and a bit of Fenty Gloss Bomb in Fenty Glow, it isn’t so awful compared to my initial try on! It sure is pale, though.
