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!

Favorite complexion product this month? Estée Lauder Double Wear Makeup (this month and every month!)

Favorite cheek product this month? Colourpop Blush Stix in Mini Me and Flamenco (I feel like I’m starting to sound like an ad for them!)

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

Three products you couldn’t put down this month? 1.) My new MAC Foundation! Pro Longwear Nourishing Waterproof Foundation in NC41. 2.) UD Jawbone bronzer 3.) MAC Natural Vice e/s palette.

Favorite complexion product this month? FAB EVERYTHING! Well, that I own anyway. Love their Ultra Repair Pure Mineral Sunscreen Moisturizer SPF 40, Coconut Skin Smoothie Priming Moisturizer and Resurfacing Liquid.

Favorite cheek product this month? So many, it’s hard to narrow down. UD Mother Of Dragons cheek palette vs. MAC Into Eternity Iridescent powder vs. Oh My, Passion vs. Nars Fetishised Blush vs. CP Butterfly Beach?

Your skin tone/coloring: Light/Medium skin with an olive undertone, green eyes, copper hair
Three products you couldn’t put down this month? A splurge, YSL The Shock mascara – it seriously makes my eyelashes look SO long and thick, the MJ ‘Tan-tastic Omega’ Bronzer, and a drugstore purchase, the new Milani Keep it Full lip gloss in the shade Rosy Bronze.
Favorite complexion product this month? Biore Aqua UV Aqua Rich Watery Essence SPF 50+
Favorite cheek product this month? I have been going between two, Milani’s Luminoso which I just pulled back out after not using for a really long time and the Laura Geller Blush-n-brighten in Honeysuckle.

Your skin tone/coloring: By my name.

Three products you couldn’t put down this month? Viseart Petit Pro 5 Soleil, Fenty Sun Stalk’r Bronzer in I$land Ting, Trish McEvoy Beauty Balm Instant Solutions.

Favorite complexion product this month? Trish McEvoy Beauty Balm Instant Solutions. This stuff is seriously expensive but it may be my HG because it evens out my skin tone, blurs pores and lines, and controls oil. It has a satin finish and I don’t need to set it. Trish McEvoy isn’t a brand I pay any attention to but it was recommended by Risa Does Makeup on YT and my skin is like hers.

Favorite cheek product this month? Somewhat offsetting the cost of the Trish McEvoy, a Revlon cream blush in the shade Coral Reef that I found in a dollar store. It is really pretty with the Viseart shadows.

💋Your skin tone/coloring: Light neutral leaning cool
💋Three products you couldn’t put down this month? 1. ABH Daiquiri pigment (LE), 2. Jouer Springtime in Paris e/s palette, 3. MAC Friend Like Me lipstick (LE Aladdin collection)
💋Favorite complexion product this month? My usual 50-50 mix of IT Cosmetics CC (illuminating) with L’oreal Infallible Fresh wear and a touch of Sunday Riley The Infuencer to further refine the shade.
💋Favorite cheek product this month? Broken record here .. CT Glowgasm palette in lightgasm and NYX Ombre blush in Mauve Me.

Your skin tone/coloring: fair, cool
Three products you couldn’t put down this month? Australian Gold Tinted Sunscreen; Clarins Sunset Glow bronzer (LE 2019); Sephora Cappuccino eye pencil
Favorite complexion product this month? the Australian Gold Tinted Sunscreen or IT Cosmetics CC Cream (they’re sort of tied; the latter gives more coverage but the former is quicker and more foolproof to apply)
Favorite cheek product this month? Dior Rosy Glow Awakening Blush

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

Three products you couldn’t put down this month?
* The Hourglass Arch Brow Sculpting Pencil and Volumizing Fiber Gel combo for my brows
* Marc Jacobs Velvet Noir mascara, although it starting drying out and I don’t like it that much at this time

Favorite complexion product this month? Too Faced Born This Way Super Coverage Multi-Use Sculpting Concealer, my favorite since October and still getting product from that bottle (I’m almost starting thinking there’s infinite product in there 😆 ).

Favorite cheek product this month? MAC Margin applied as a blush, without contouring, it adds some summer bronziness to my face

Your skin tone/coloring: light, MAC NC 15-20, med brown hair and eyes, oily skin

Three products you couldn’t put down this month? Chanel Soleil Tan Bronzer, Becca Moonstone Highlighter and HUDA Orange Obessions Palette or Jouer Tanlines Palette!

Your skin tone/coloring:
Fair, cool undertones

Three products you couldn’t put down this month?
Tarte Tarteist Pro Remix
A cheap (10 RMB, I’m traveling) brow pencil from a Japanese store called Miniso that’s just very well shaped for faking an arch
Kat von D Everlasting liquid lipstick in Lovesick (not my fave formula, but I love this color)

Favorite complexion product this month?
I assume this means foundation, yea (I’m new here)? I’ve been using the It cosmetics illuminating CC cream as well as L’Oreal Infallible 24 hr fresh wear. Tbh, I am not /completely/ satisfied with either. I initially loved the finish on the It CC illuminator but within a couple hours it looks extremely oily; it works out if I powder the heck out of my T=zone. I’ve found the L’Oreal can look okay but if I’m not careful about how much Tarte Timeless primer I use it can cause major clumping (I regret impulse-listening to Tati without getting samples of at least the primer first). I’m excited about the Smashbox mattifying primer stick I got on sale, though, which (after sampling) seems to be a better pore-fill for me than the Timeless primer.

Favorite cheek product this month?
I am LOVING my two Colour Pop Super Shock blushes (Birthday Suit & No Vacancy)

Your skin tone/coloring: NC-30 (medium, yellow/warm)
Three products you couldn’t put down this month? Glossier Niteshine Highlighter Concentrates – these are soooo pretty!
Favorite complexion product this month? Not technically complexion, but Supergoop Glow Stick SPF 50 is AMAZING under makeup. It’s like a dewy primer – anything you put on top is instantly more glowy and radiant (almost greasy, but I’m all about that life). It doesn’t affect the staying power in my experience either, although you’ll probably get more oily thru the day.
Favorite cheek product this month? Glossier Cloud Paints – I’ve had these for a while but don’t reach for them much. I decided to make a better effort of using them and have been really enjoying the look for summer

I’m fair to light (depending on the time of year) with neutral undertones, warm moss green eyes, silver-grey hair.

Three products on this month’s hit parade:
Chanel Les Beiges Les Indispensables 9 pan eyeshadow palette
Rouge Coco Flash in various shades like Rush or Flash
La Mer The Soft Fluid Foundation in Ivory (my summer shade)

Favorite complexion product:
Aside from my Jack Black Sun Guard sunscreen, it’s Tatcha’s new Dewy Cream

Favorite cheek product:
Chanel Jous Contraste in Quintessence

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

Three products you couldn’t put down this month? 1) Blue and green eyeshadows in general 2) Fenty Beauty Gloss Bomb Universal Lip Luminizer in Fenty Glow, and 3) UD Vice Lipstick in Sheer Rapture

Favorite complexion product this month? L’Oreal’s True Match foundation in Porcelain Rose

Favorite cheek product this month? EA’s Sweet Peach blush, no orange undertones – more of a coral/peach shade and it lasts all day.

Your skin tone/coloring: Under my name.

Three products you couldn’t put down this month?
1. Becca x Chrissy Teigen Glow Face Palette – my go-to palette in summer. Not to mention that the two highlighters (Rose Gold and Beach Nectar) make great eyeshadows.
2. Givenchy Khol Couture Waterproof Retractable Eyeliner in Chestnut
3. Charlotte Tilbury Lipstick in Amazing Grace

Favorite complexion product this month? Suntegrity 5-in-1 Tinted Sunscreen (non-nano zinc-oxide 20%) mixed with some IT Cosmetics CC Cream.

Favorite cheek product this month? Inglot AMC Face Blush (Liquid) in 91. This is an awesome blush, winter and summer alike. Another favorite for summer: Hibiscus Bloom (a gorgeous coral shade) from the Becca x Chrissy Teigen Glow Face Palette.

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

Three products you couldn’t put down this month? ND Sunrise palette, ND Safari palette, Laneige Lip Glowy Balm
