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: medium, Marc Jacobs Concealer Stick Medium 33
Favorite green eyeshadow? Clinique High Impact Eyeshadow in Lemongrass
Favorite plum lipstick? Not much into plum lipstick, but a dark raspberry would do
Favorite everyday blush? Surratt Duchesse or Nars Orgasm (liquid)

Your skin tone/coloring: Light-medium with warm yellow undertones
Favorite green eyeshadow? MAC Humid
Favorite plum lipstick? MAC Rebel
Favorite everyday blush? MAC Harmony

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

Favorite green eyeshadow? Easy! Except I have several equally loved ones: MAC Jealousy Wakes and Savant, Coloured Raine Green Valley, and even though it’s not the easiest to blend, CR Congo Basin, because I love the murky olive tone to it.

Favorite plum lipstick? MAC VG III, Sí, Sí Me and Tom Ford’s Seadragon.

Favorite everyday blush? Essence Satin Love or UD Rapture.

Your skin tone/coloring: above with freckles, green/gray/blue eyes, warm brown hair.

Favorite green eyeshadow? Colourpop SSS in Flowershop, Nars Single Dual Intensity Eyeshadow in Pasiphae, ND single in Antique Olive. All very different greens.

Favorite plum lipstick? Pat McGrath LuxeTrance Lipstick in Beautiful Creature and Bobbi Brown Crushed Lip Color in Telluride.

Favorite everyday blush? Glossier Cloud Paint in Dusk mixed with Flower Beauty Blush Bomb in Pinched.

Your skin tone/coloring: Under my name. Green eyes and s&p hair

Favorite green eyeshadow? I don’t use green very often, but I like MAC Sumptuous Olive and Urban Decay Wanderlust.

Favorite plum lipstick? At this particular moment, MAC Craving. Ask me next week and you might get a difference answer!

Favorite everyday blush? The three I’ve been using a lot these days are Colourpop Mini Me, Clinique Powder Blush in Cupid, and MAC Mineralize Blush in Sweet Enough.

Same here but in the same way I don’t think of Plumful as “plum”, I don’t think of Craving as plum either but it’s my all time favourite lipstick – I think I must have bought at least 10 tubes over the years and always have 3 on the go at any given time. I’d completely overlooked Sumptuous Olive – don’t know why that beauty didn’t pop immediately to mind or its even better dupe in Inglot 419 (I hope they still make that one!)

Your skin tone/coloring: light, MAC NC 15-20, med brown hair and eyes, oily skin
Favorite green eyeshadow? MAC Humid or NARS Pasphipae

Favorite plum lipstick? Revlon Golden Plum Pearl or Clinique Almost Lipstick in Black Honey

Favorite everyday blush? Origins Pinch Your Cheeks Blush in Rose Dust, Clinique Nude Pop, NARS Madly, MAC Cosmic Force or Warm Soul and Lancome Blush Subtil in Miel Glace

Skin tone: Very fair with neutral undertones, grey hair and dark brown eyes.

Favorite green e/s: That is like asking who my favorite child is, LOL! I have yet to meet a green that I don’t like. Currently I will go with the Kaleidos Futurism Sci-Fi Green palette and the shade, E. T. It is a nice olive green and pairs well with a lot of other shadows that I own. I also love both of the greens in my Emme Cosmetics Flower Garden palette, Lime Grass and Venice.

Favorite plum lipstick: ColourPop Alchemist, Pat McGrath Beautiful Creature and MAC Rebel.

Favorite everyday blush: Any of the Ciate Glow to Illuminate blushes. I have used Summer Love the most. I also picked up Cover FX Monochromatic blush in Mohave Mauve and I think it is going to be a new favorite. I love everything about it and will be getting a couple more duos.

Hey Deborah, I just got the 3 Kaleidos futurism palette set and I have to say that the packing is absolutely gorgeous. I hope the shadows deliver like the packaging has!

I have been very happy with mine, Valerie. I ordered two complete sets, one for my daughter and one for myself. When the original box came there was only one set inside so I gave it to my daughter. She has had hers for about three weeks and really loves all of the shades. I notified the company and they responded right away with their apologies and put another set in the mail to me the same day. They also took half the cost of the palette off and returned it to my Paypal account. I told them they didn’t need to do that as mistakes happen but they were insistent. I got mine about 10 days ago and have really been enjoying all the palettes. The packaging is really nice. I didn’t know what to expect since I had purchased them based on Tara (Tarababyz on YT) and didn’t realize they were being made in China until I noted the length of time for mailing. I sort of thought they would end up being cheap and poor quality but they have proven me wrong. The box is quite sturdy and the overall presentation was really good. The inside boxes are beautiful and with magnetic closure and a mirror. Just overall very happy with my purchase. I hope you like yours.

Your skin tone/coloring: fair, cool
Favorite green eyeshadow? oh gosh….maybe MAC’s Steamy or Humid and I’m looking forward to cooler weather to use UD’s Wanderlust (from the Born to Run palette)
Favorite plum lipstick? I’d say MAC Plumful but I don’t really think of it as “plum” in the purple sense and the closest lipstick I have to anything “purple” is MAC Rebel
