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!

Skin Tone/Coloring: Light neutral skin tone, green eyes, dark hair with silver

Favorite Look Worn: I’ve used my new LORAC Pro Palette 4 over the past few days and I like all the different looks I’ve come up with. This palette will definitely be a workhorse for me. Here’s a look that I will use a lot for work: Brûlée in the crease (when used over primer, it looks darker than it does in the palette), Iced Rose on lid, Pecan in outer V, and Chantilly on brow bone; plus Marc Jacobs Highliner in (Brown)ie in upper lash line; Lancôme Teint Idole in Ivoire N 100; Dermablend Loose Setting Powder; Clinique Blushing Blush in Cupid; and MAC Amplified Lipstick in Craving. Plus my everyday usuals: Clinique Brow Shaper, ABH Brow Wiz, Tarte Lights Camera Lashes Mascara, and Tarte Shape Tape Concealer.

Most Used Products: Other than my everyday usuals, my most used are the new LORAC palette and Lancôme Teint Idole in Ivoire N 100, which looks beautiful and lasts all day, but after using this foundation three days in a row, my face is suddenly breaking out. I don’t know if it’s the foundation or maybe just stress. I hope it’s not the foundation because I really, really like it.

New Beauty Discoveries: I am in love with the LORAC Pro Palette 4. I’m able to do so many different looks with it. I prefer the shades on the left half of the palette and find these shades to be easy to blend and nicely pigmented. It’s important to note that I use them directly over NYX Proof It Waterproof Eyeshadow Primer, rather than the primer that came with the palette. Also, I want to make a quick mention of the lovely, descriptive shade names in this palette.

My skin tone/coloring: fair, cool
Favorite look you wore: I’ve been keeping it simple as it’s been very hot here and I’ve been going to the gym a lot – sunscreen, concealer (IT BBU but the one in the double ended doe foot tube – it’s got a creamier, more “liquid-y” texture than the one in the squeeze tube); Stila Bubbly on my lids and MAC Cork in the crease; Sephora Cappuccino liner, IT CC Radiance Blush and MAC Craving lipstick (trying to finish a tube so I can B2M
Most used product of the week: IT CC Radiance blush and Too Faced Chocolate Soleil bronzer (which amazes me)
Any new beauty discoveries: just how much I love the shadow Salt from the new-ish UD Beached palette.
