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!

What lip product have you used the most this summer? I started the summer wearing MAC’s Powder Kiss in Mull it Over a lot, but now suddenly I’m wearing Sephora’s #lipstories in Sink or Swim either by itself or tapped in the center of whatever else I put on.

What foundation have you used the most this summer? Stila’s Illuminating 10-in-1 BB Cream stuff

What blush have you used the most this summer? Benefit Posietint, as per uzh.

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

What lip product have you used the most this summer? Basically, is it nude? Is it red? Well then, I’ve probably been rocking it this summer! I do have certain favorites that got worn more regularly, ie; MAC Marque Ultimate Lipstick, PMG She’s Heaven Luxetrance, Bite Jicama Liquified Lipstick, UD Broken Vice Lipstick, Fenty Gloss Bomb Universal, Becca Beach Nectar lipgloss, MAC Maria Moretti and Natural Born Leader, and UD 100 Degrees.

What foundation have you used the most this summer? Mostly, mixing MAC Pro Longwear Nourishing Waterproof Foundation in NC41 with my Lumene BB cream because the Pro Longwear Nourishing is so full coverage and thick. Or, lately I’ve been mixing Fenty Pro Filt’r Hydrating Longwear foundation in 270 with Lancome Teint Idole in 360, because 270 seems too rosy peach and 360 is too dull of an olive. The two together give me a perfect match! Olive with some slightly peachy overtones.

What foundation have you used the most this summer? I’m a loyal EL Double Wear fan year-round.

What foundation have you used the most this summer? I’ve only used foundation a couple of times this summer (Clinique Perfectly Real liquid foundation, discontinued unfortunately).

And I topped these DE products with Becca’s Hydra-Mist Set & Refresh Powder applied on my T-zone. This was my HG combo this summer. I’ve used the Laura Mercier velour puff to apply the powder and I really took the time in the morning to press the powder into my skin, and I must say that I rarely needed to retouch or even blot my T-zone using this method.
