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: Above with freckles, green/gray/blue eyes, warm brown hair.

Best foundation for perfected skin? Physician’s Formula The Healthy Foundation is the most perfecting foundation that I have!

Best highlighter for glowing skin? Charlotte Tilbury Hollywood Flawless Filter is perfection and very natural on the skin.

Best your-lips-but-better lip color? I love either Perricone MD No Makeup Lipstick (the original) or Bite Beauty Luminous Creme Lipstick in Musk.

Your skin tone/coloring: Under my name (blue-green eyes).

Best foundation for perfected skin? Even though I love my Fenty ProFilt’r Hydrating Longwear foundation, I still love the skin perfection that Lancome Teint Idole gives. Unfortunately I still don’t know of a perfect skintone match in Lancome.

Best highlighter for glowing skin? Either ABH Amrezy or MAC Skinfinish highlighter in Double Gleam.

Best your-lips-but-better lip color? Depends on what time I’m trying for! Neutral: PMG She’s Heaven Luxetrance. Pinker: MAC Mehr. Warmer: MAC Nicki’s Nude. Plummy: UD Tampered. Shimmery: UD Broken or Guerlain Air Kiss.

Your skin tone/coloring: Light-medium yellow warm undertones, dark brown eyes and hair

Best foundation for perfected skin? My trifecta I can’t choose between: Estee Lauder Double Wear, MAC Prolongwear Waterproof, Becca Ultimate Coverage

Best highlighter for glowing skin? Glowing? Highlighted? Not me, the most I would use is an illuminating powder like MAC Emphasize

Best your-lips-but-better lip color? MAC Velvet Teddy for something more brown, MAC Brave for something more purple (which is the actual tint of my lips)

Your skin tone/colouring: Porcelain, with pink undertones.

Best foundation for perfected skin? At the moment I am loving L’Oreal’s True Match foundation in porcelain rose. It lasts all day and has a mattish finish, which I love.

Best highlighter for glowing skin? I don’t use a highlighter as I find that it leaves my skin looking too dewy.

Best your-lips-but-better lip color? I tend not to use a MLBB kind of lipstick as most of these are pinkish. I go for bolder shades, such as bronze, reddish browns and orangey shades.
Favourites include: CP – Tea Thyme, LA Lady, Gallop and Foolish
EA – Perfect Bronze and Goldmine, Maybelline Spice for Me, Art Deco Indian Summer.

Didn’t we have these questions a couple weeks ago?

Your skin tone/coloring: Under my name; magenta/red hair; hazel/green eyes.

Best foundation for perfected skin? I don’t deliberately go for perfected skin, and I don’t think any of my foundations are touted as such. I could be wrong. I’ll say Lancome Teint Idole Ultra 24H.

Best highlighter for glowing skin? I usually go for intense HLs rather than just a glow, but I do like whites with lavender duochrome on my fair skin, such as MUG Celestial and Notoriously Morbid Osteomancy. E.l.f. Baked Highlighter in Moonlight Pearls or Blushed Gems are really nice, too.

Best your-lips-but-better lip color? Urban Decay Vice Lipstick in Sheer Rapture

Your skin tone/coloring: light/medium with neutral undertones
Best foundation for perfected skin? Physicians Formula The Healthy Foundation
Best highlighter for glowing skin? Either rms beauty living luminizer or Tata Harper Cheek Tint in Very Highlighting
Best your-lips-but-better lip color? I’m not big on lip colors, more of a balm or gloss wearer

Your skin tone/coloring: light medium
Best foundation for perfected skin? Lately I have gone back to Armani Luminous Silk. I usually used EL Double wear.
Best highlighter for glowing skin? BECCA opal!
Best your-lips-but-better lip color? CT JK Rowling. MAC half and half.

Your skin tone/coloring: fair, cool
Best foundation for perfected skin? IT CC Cream
Best highlighter for glowing skin? Dior Glowing Pink Glowing Gardens (LE)
