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!

Skin Tone/Coloring: Light neutral skin tone, green eyes, salt & pepper hair

Favorite look: EYES: ABH Brow Wiz and Clinique Brow Shaper on brows, Laura Mercier Amethyst Caviar Stick, Chanel Stylo Yeux Eyeliner in Charme, NYX Worth the Hype Mascara. FACE: Estรฉe Lauder Double Wear Makeup, Tarte Shape Tape Concealer, RCMA No Color Powder, Clinique Powder Blush in Cupid. LIPS: Guerlain KissKiss in Crazy Nude.

Most Used Products: ABH Brow Wiz, Clinique Brow Shaper, Estรฉe Lauder Double Wear Makeup, Tarte Shape Tape Concealer, RCMA No Color Powder, Clinique Powder Blush

Beauty Discoveries: Nothing this week.

Your skin tone/coloring: Fair neutral with a preference to cool tones

Favorite look from the week: I used the new Dominque Cosmetics’ Berries & Cream palette – using Toasted & Chocolate mousse on the crease and used Stila Kitten on the lid and inner corner. I also took Chocolate Mousse as a liner JUST as a liner in the inner corner until my lash line. Big Charlotte TIlbury vibes.

Your most used product this week: My Dior lip maximizer – I’m seeing the end of it.

Any beauty discoveries (new or old): Loving that Hourglass Blush.

Skin tone: under my name.
Favorite look: I continue to not really be doing a lot of eye makeup so my looks have all pretty much been very neutral for the past couple of weeks. I have really only been using the Pony Glam palette which is a mix of warm, neutral and cool beige shades. My favorite of the looks was using two of the warmer shades, a light beige in the transition and a deeper redder/brown in the crease. I used the matte light beige shade for my lid and inner corner highlight and then I dabbed Stila Glitter and Glow in Perlina on the center of my lid. I used Summer Love blush by Ciate and MAC Party Parrot on my lips. See below for explanation of Party Parrot!!

Most used product: My skin care and the Pony e/s palette. I feel like I am working my way out of my rut so hopefully will feel like being more adventurous with my makeup.

New discoveries: This isn’t a new discovery but a rediscovery. I mentioned in my haul yesterday that I purchased one makeup product this past week and it was a back up of MAC Party Parrot lipstick which is a cream sheen and one of my favorite pink/coral shades. It was LE and difficult to find and when I saw it on Mercuri I picked it up. Yesterday, we had a beautiful 40+ degree day with sunshine all day long, here in Montana. That is a rarity for us and with the sun and warmth I just felt like wearing Party Parrot. Truly, it is not a winter lipstick but it felt good to put something a little brighter on my lips. I love it mostly for the colour as I am not really a cream sheen kind of lipstick wearer. It isn’t my favorite formula from MAC but for the shade, I will deal with it!

Your skin tone/coloring: fair/cool skin, gray eyes, brown hair with scattered red/blonde/blue highlights.
Favorite look from the week: Wednesday’s purple and ice blue halo-eye look: Maybelline SuperStay Better Skin 10 Ivory concealer, Fenty Amber Match Stick, Fenty Pro Filt’r 110 foundation, Revlon Mauvelous powder blush, Becca Light Chaser Amethyst Flashes Geode highlighter on cheekbones, Kat Von D Catherine2 shadow on lid, Fenty Killawatt 7daywknd highlighter in center of lid as halo, Stila Escape shadow topped with Fenty Killawatt Poolside highlighter on browbone, Hard Candy Ginormous Lash Purple Haze mascara, Marc Jacobs Enamored Ch-Ch-Changes lip gloss.
Your most used product this week: Probably Fenty Pro Filt’r 110.
Any beauty discoveries (new or old): Nothing new since last week.

Boots No 7 in Calico/ Mac NW20, blue eyes, dark brown hair.
Haven’t worn a lot of makeup this week, I’ve had a prolonged migraine. But yesterday I wore a bright eye (UD Sin into Naked and Darkhorse, Buck in the crease and under the eye), Troublemaker mascara (I’m not into skyscraper lashes but got it with the palette) and Maybelline Unstoppable on the waterline, with UD Afterdark plus a touch of clear gloss (Nyx) on the lips, and felt good. (my skin’s been kind to me recently so I didn’t wear any foundation or cheek products)
Most used product, La Roche-Posay lip balm (fantastic stuff).
Discoveries: no products, but I think I’m getting closer to working out my colouring so I know what makeup flatters me. I think I have a “bright” palette. It’s been driving me mad.

Too pretty for words, and I’m more than happy to support Monarch butterfly conservation. I also found out Neiman Marcus sells refills for the Philanthropy blushes (but the Chantecaille website does not — Weird!). My first Chantecaille buy.

I’ve never bought Dior in my life, but this month I bought the Hologlam blush and the new DiorSkin Nude Luminizer in Pink Delight. If I start loving their cheek products, I love both, and this could be the start of a bad habit. lol

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

Favorite look from the week: I’ve been focusing on some unused palettes for the backbone of my look and throwing in singles, bases etc (which also allows me to use more of my singles) in an effort to use more of my collection. I pulled out UD X Gwen Stefani as well as MAC Tilt and Sun, Tan and Repeat from the Summer collection. Used MAC Raven and Marc Jacobs Hi-liner in Blacquer on the top lashline. MAC Mineralize Multi Effect Mascara in Charged Black on top lashes. Used Black Moon Cosmetics Bioluminescent Moonlighter as an inner corner highlight. Clinique Heather Pop Blush. Lorac Matte Lip Crayon in Greige. PhysiciansFormula Butter Bronzer Light. Loved the products I used:)

Your most used product this week: UD X Gwen Stefani Eyeshadow Palette, Physicians Formula Butter Bronzer, MAC Mineralize Multi Effect Mascara in Charged Black, Clinique Heather Pop Blush, MAC Raven and Marc Jacobs Hi-liner in Blacquer for liners. Plus all my other staples.

Any beauty discoveries (new or old): UD X Gwen Stefani Eyeshadow Palette. It’s a good neutral palette with nice sturdy packaging. Picked it up at Nordstrom Rack for like $10.

Your skin tone/colouring: Porcelain, with pink undertones

Favourite look from the week: This week I used the bareMienrals The Wild Thing quad, with the chartreuse shade on the lid, the beautiful blue Contraversy shade on the lower lid and a touch of Elitist in the crease and paired it with my Besame Orange/Red lippie.

Your most used product this week: Sunscreen – La Roche Posay’s Ultra Light 50+.

Any beauty discoveries (new or old): No, not this week.
