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!

Your skin tone/coloring: pale, cool
Last lipstick you used? believe it or not, it WASN’T Craving – it was MAC Dallas (today and yesterday)
Last eye palette you used? Natasha Denona 5 pan Mini Glam
Last blush you used? MAC Sheertone Shimmer in Pinch of Peach (it’s not very peachy at all, which is good; I’m trying to get used to it so I can take it to Japan because it’s one that I won’t feel bad about if I lose it on our travels and it’s also not intensely pigmented so I don’t have to worry about looking clownish over-applying it in the less than ideal light we’re certain to encounter in some of the places we are staying).

Last eye palette you used? Huda Jaguar w/ some Clionadh multichrome to spice it up
Last blush you used? Joah Beauty Air Light blush in Naked Rose. Lovely soft matte formula; CVS usually runs lots of sales and coupons on their stuff. I like the brand a lot but I think it’s really under the radar for most people.

Skin tone/colouring: fair-light with neutral undertones, brown hair, hazel eyes

Last lipstick I used: Ilia Wild Rose which is my go-to for sophisticated, office acceptable, but still a gorgeous colour.

Last eye palette I used: Tom Ford Hazy Sensuality. I thought I could never wear the pink, but a sheer layer turned out to be very wearable.

Last blush I used: I’m always alternating between Nars Afterglow Liquid Blush in Brazen (coral peach), Wanderlust (lilac pink), and Dolce Vita (plummy neutral). I think Dolce Vita was last, but all three have been a summer staple.

We have very distinct 4 seasons where I live, and so I have been using my summer makeup for the past couple of months. It feels almost like end of summer now, and I pulled out the above products that are more autumn/winter than summer shades for me, and loved the look!
