Happy Wednesday! Here's this week's survey, which you can copy and paste and share as a comment.

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!

Under my name; medium dark brown hair with red undertones and threaded with gray; hazel/green eyes.

Terra Moons Cosmetics pressed multichrome eyeshadow in Venus in Chains.

City Color Cosmetics Keep Blooming Kisses Lipstick in Aster (it was a GWP). Too strongly smelling and tasting of floral perfume; color gave me “concealer lips.”

UDPP (original formula).

I’ve been missing the surveys, so I’m glad I was on updating my vanity ;)!

Your skin tone/coloring: Fenty Pro Filt’r 290, PML Light Medium 13 (yellow-neutral)
Last product you purchased? revolution London Makeup Revolution Coke-Cola Shadow Palette (free for points, so I only paid $4 shipping)
Last product you decluttered? Threw out an old lipstick – wand type (odor and texture issues) by Smashbox (I really liked the color -a pink mauve!)
Last product you finished? Usually mascaras since you should change them frequently and they either dry out or become clumpy. I think it was a Maybelline from a discount store.

Your skin tone/coloring: Light medium with neutral undertones
Last product you purchased? Westman Atelier Face Trace Cream Contour in shade Truffle. I’m using it as a cream bronzer stick around perimeter. This shade has more reddish undertones which works well for me.
Last product you decluttered? Tossed a couple of concealers. I’ve tried so many in the last year. Kosas and Charlotte Tilbury were kicked to the curb
Last product you finished? Dior Overcurl mascara. I used to love this mascara and either they have changed the formula or my lashes have taking a hit from aging. It is not giving me as much flex and my lashes are clumping where they used to appear more feathery.

Your skin tone/coloring: Under my name (blue-green eyes, dark hair)

Last product you purchased? MAC Strobe Cream in Pink Lite and Benefit Blush in Crystah.

Last product you decluttered? Other than sending my daughter the UD Naked 1 and a 6-pan Nabla palette, I just cannot think of anything else. Both are palettes that I knew would look far better on her lighter skintone.

Last product you finished? My last Lumene BB Cream in Medium. Upon which, I ordered their now named CC cream in Medium and sure is vastly DIFFERENT from their previous “Medium”! Too light a shade for me to use without adding some foundation to it.

Last product you finished? SOB – a tube of MAC Craving lipstick (I still have about 5 or 6, some unused and some in use) and NARS eyeshadow primer.

Your skin tone/coloring: Under my name.
Last product you purchased? Chanel eye quad Les 4 Ombres 68 – Délices from their new Délices Pastel collection. When I first saw the photos of the quad, I was not so sure about the shades (Easter egg vibes ?). But I am so glad that I did. You can go for a luminous pick-me-up effect, or you can build them up to intensify the colour. Personally I love the luminosity, the elegance and the subtlety of the Chanel eyeshadows in general, and this quad is no different.
Last product you decluttered? Tower 28 Beauty Mascara. This is the second tube and I have the same issue as with the previous one if not worse: the mascara dries too fast and it makes my lashes clumpy. Btw, I am using mascara at least five times a week. With the first tube I thought it might be a bad batch but it’s the formula. Love the wand though.
Last product you finished? IT Cosmetics Bye Bye Redness Correcting Cream in Porcelain Beige.

Your skin tone/coloring: pale yellowish, blue eyes, red hair

Last product you purchased? a gunmetal cream shadow stick from Mally that I found on amazon super cheap. I know her shadow sticks are very good and long-lasting, so I wanna try this one on its own and layered with other things. I love grey shadows but I don’t really have a lot of grey in my collection.

Last product you decluttered? a dried out Danessa Myricks twin flames sample 🙁

Last product you finished? moira brow pencil <3

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

Last product you purchased? Cosmetic wise, I had to order from Amazon the Paula’s Choice Hair and Body Shampoo because I don’t know how I forgot to make sure I have back-up. I had to shower with my face cleanser for 2 days. 😆

Last product you decluttered? I don’t do nor need declutters, I have a small collection, just what I need and mostly one of each opened. The only thing that’s close to a “declutter” is removing from my collection MAC Coppertone and Amber Lights because they reached 3 years from manufacturing date (I’m quite strict with expiring dates).

Last product you finished? MAC Brow Stiller Pencil
