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’s been in your rotation most this week? Been playing around with my Lorac Unzipped to see if it would replicate the looks of that Chanel quad. Not quite, I don’t think? But it could be me being too perfectionistic, though?

What have you been eyeing this week? Nars Lip Glide in Impossible Red! MJ Dew You plus EL Naked Truth lipstick are on my wishlist for next month. And those new Smashbox lip glosses look divine!

The Dew You from Marc Jacobs really caught my eye!!!

I’v been back to using just my Modern Renaissance palette, again. I’m discovering new combos with it currently! So i’m happy!!!

I’v also been living for nude lips! Which is brand new territory for me!! So I’m having a lot of fun trying them out, and using the nudes I own!!

I have been using my new Nabla eye shadows all week and have loved the looks. In particular I like Pinkwood which is a beautiful pinky brown. The cream eye shadows dry down to a powder and do not crease on me. My only complaint is that they dry down quickly so you do have to work fast when it comes to blending but I am enjoying playing around with them.
I have been trying to talk myself out of the new Chanel quads but I don’t think I am going to succeed. I am hoping to see them tomorrow in Seattle.

Tested the Nars Famous Red at Sephora this week — it’s a candidate for future purchase.

Also checked out the MJ coconut products — am scratching them off my list, don’t think they would add to what I already have, and they didn’t smell like coconut to me.

YSL Rouge pur Couture lipsticks #13 Orange and #50 Rouge Neon have my attention,
also Nars Audacious l/s in Raquel, Lana, and Geraldine.

Wore MAC High Heels liquid lipstick from the Helmut Newton retro matte collection — definitely an eye-catching red that lasted well. Looked fantastic with MAC Mineralize liquid foundation in NW20, just a hint of blush and neutral shadow, brow gel, and black mascara. In retrospect, I think it would have looked even better with a lip liner before applying the liquid lipstick. I’m coming to the conclusion that I like lip liner BEFORE applying a medium-deep toned lipstick, for definition and boundaries, but AFTER applying a light-toned lipstick for a look of more lip fullness. Wore MAC High Heels l/s with a blush pink top and black skirt — I’m playing with wearing pinks and reds together this spring.

Used nude blush this week. Mainly Revlon Naughty Nude and Cover Girl Soft Mink. Plus I’ve used Loreal Infallible Matte Matic Eyeliner in Taupe Grey. Such a departure for me since I usually wear bronzey brown eyeliner most days!

I’m eyeing Laura Gellar Pink buttercream baked blush. Darn Ulta 21 days. I have too much blush but I so want!

What’s been in your rotation the most this week? Tarte Exposed; bhCosmetics Carli Bybel palette; e.l.f. Blush in Gotta Glow; UD Revolution Lipstick in Sheer Rapture; super-shimmery eyelids in various colors.

What caught your eye? BhCosmetics Foil Eyes 2 palette; Smashbox Liquid Lips; MAC Metallic Lips (especially Zerocool); Tarte summer collection; Urban Decay Basquiat collection.
