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!

I’d also vote for the ABH Mario Palette, MAC Sweet Sentiment Blush (or Subtle Breeze – I’d be happy with either) and MAC Modern Pewter Extra Dimension Eyeshadow (and I have to slip in Nars Jardin Perdu and Vent Glace duos as honorable mentions). I am so glad I have Empreinte du Desert and it is sure a contender for inclusion in this list.

ABH Amrezy highlighter and Mario palette. Tom Ford Young Adonis. Pat McGrath 006 pigments (I love the matte black, it was in a satin baked special formula, with a golden sheen without glitters. Outstanding! There was an antique gold with the same formula that was so special as well. I loved that 2017 release!)

Aw yes I remember all the fuss about pleasureflush, I loved it, it was my favorite highlighter before highlighters were a thing, and there was a dupe by an obscure brand terra del sol. Ah the good old days lol 🙂

Because I missed out on it, ABH Mario palette. I’m kicking myself for not jumping on that one while I could!
MAC Oh My, Passion, as I about to hit pan and it’s one of my favorite blushes ever.
Since I would love to be able to replace this stunner once I finally use it up, one may assume I’d say Chanel Empriente du Desert quad (and that IS tempting), but I’ll likely never hit pan on it. Not for lack of usage, either!
So, #3 is a Chanel blush from several summers ago. I forget its name unfortunately, but it got a high grade here.

Nancy, I was very much on the fence about the Mario palette. Some of the reviews I’d read about it were pretty lukewarm (and that’s being kind) and there was some overlap of colours but I am SO glad I did decide to get it as it’s one of the palettes I like using often. It’s missing a highlight shade for my skin tone and that surprised me at the time it was released but it’s a small flaw that’s easily remedied by just reaching for something like MAC Phloof!

I agree with all of your choices Christine. I could think of the name of the Chanel palette for your Instagram post, I could only think I’d the Desert du part, lol.

The three limited edition products that I would like to see re-released AND available world wide are:
1. Chanel Empreinte du Desert
2. Tom Ford’s Emerald Lust palette
3. Whilst this isn’t limited edition, I would really love for our Sephora here to get the last edition of their lipstories lipsticks in the shades of Autumn Blaze and Auburn (what is wrong with them?)

I would love to see back;

– Mac Rock it from the Caitlynn Jenner Collection perfect neutral to go with anything for me
– Mac Sunset Pearl from the Jade Jagger Collection, great nurishing formula with a shade that fits me well
– Mac Charlotte my perfect red …

I would love to see MAC Hot Tahiti released. It is my go to “slap it on” red and I would buy a couple. Also MAC Viva Glam V. It is one of the very few MLBB shades that look good on me. And finally, Shiseido Full Lash waterproof mascara. I bought a few backups when it was discontinued, but they are sadly long gone. It’s the only mascara I considered a Holy Grail item.

Urban decay lipstick in Illicit (from that little vault, not sure if it was revolution or vice), Colourpop SSS in Shark Attack, and MAC Cinderella lipstick in Royal Ball.
