Sweepstakes prize order, part 1: All new-to-me products or formulas.Details & swatches: SpoilerSo hey, I’m one of the winners of Sephora's Skincare Goals Sweepstakes. You’d think I’d blow the entire gift card prize on lipsticks. 😂 And I might yet do that: I’ve still got a sizable balance on that card after this order. But I’m trying to save the rest toward a future Pat McGrath release (which had better not be more shades of pink). Anyway, this prize’s timing perfectly coincided with lipstick releases from Bite and Urban Decay so, you know, obviously I had to grab a shade of each formula to try. For science! Not for lipstick addiction, noooo, why I of all people would never… Bite Power Move Hydrating Soft Matte Lipstick, shade Pluot - considering the current limited shade range, I wanted to test one I’ve never used before. I threw it on my lips tonight for a few minutes (and forgot to take a lip swatch photo) and yeah, it’s nothing like the Amuse Bouche formula. Not that I expected it to be similar since the Power Move formula's marketed as matte, but Pluot doesn’t feel near as comfy creamy as the ABs. It doesn’t feel dry, though. I’ll have to give it a full day wear test next week. For now, it makes me miss the ABs even more. Urban Decay Vice Hydrating Lipstick, shades Olvera (cream) and Gridlock (matte) - since this new Hydrating line's replacing the old Comfort Mattes and Creams, I’m super bummed that Firebird is missing from the new lineup—otherwise I’d have bought that shade. Instead, I chose one matte and one cream in UD shades I’ve never tried before. I’ll try one of these tomorrow (err, later today since it’s now around 3 AM CT)… probably Olvera. Danessa Myricks Colorfix Glaze, shades Clear and Oil Slick - I’ve never tried Danessa’s glaze version of Colorfix. I hope the clear one works well as a topper lip gloss, and Oil Slick will be fun to play with. My swatch photo doesn’t show off the orange, red, yellow, and green sparkles in Oil Slick, but in person they catch the light quite well. Gucci Crayon Contour des Levres Lip Liner, shade Miel - After trying nearly every Gucci bullet formula, I figured I might as well try a lip liner. I think the only liner I have that’s near this shade is a MUFE Artist Color Pencil. I have some very light orange and marigold lipsticks that should work well with this liner. It felt creamy and smooth on my hand, so hopefully it’ll perform well on my lips. Make Up For Ever Aqua Lip Waterproof Lipliner, shade 14C Light Rosewood - this will be the first MUFE Aqua lip liner I’ve ever tried, so I chose a shade that seemed a decent nude match for my natural lip coloring—though it might be a tad warm. I’m interested to see how it compares to my favorite lip liner (Pat McGrath’s gel lip liner). I mean, “waterproof” is a bold claim, MUFE. 😄 So hey, I’m one of the winners of Sephora's Skincare Goals Sweepstakes. You’d think I’d blow the entire gift card prize on lipsticks.

@Mochapj Based on the "do you dream in color" hint on Pat's instagram, I hope it's an eyeshadow palette (Mothership or otherwise) containing a variety of shades that are anything but more pinks. Though the bit of pink rose packaging in the video doesn't give me much hope for a non-pink Mothership. Reeeeally wish she'd close the rose chapter and move on.

Hi @elmsss ! If your skin's not very sensitive or finicky and you're sure it can handle a new daily product, go for it. Otherwise, consider patch testing Paula's Choice 10% Azelaic Acid Booster 1 oz/ 30 mL (perhaps on one small part of your face, or your neck, wrist, or inner elbow) for a week to see if it makes you very itchy or causes any other reaction. When I first started using azelaic acid, it always made my skin itch for 15-30 minutes after application. But after a couple months of regular use, my skin grew tolerant of it and the itchiness stopped. Then again, my skin's fairly sensitive and quite inflammation-prone. I also use a retinoid each night, plus AHA and BHA 1-3 times a week, and I've noticed no conflict-related irritation with azelaic acid.

Have you considered trying a retinol? Retinol is the only ingredient I know of that is an all-in-one serum. It can help with aging, acne, acne scars, dull skin, and uneven texture. I believe it is also good for all skin types. The ordinary has several highly rated retinol products that I’ve heard good things about including the Retinol 0.5% in Squalane, Granactive retinoid 2% emulsion, and granactive retinol 5% emulsion. Retinol is a pretty strong ingredient so if you have never used it before I would start with something like the ordinary retinol 0.5% in Squalane or another similar product. If you do go with a retinol, remember to start out slow by using it once a week at night. Then work your way up to 2-3 times a week. Also, wear sunscreen in the morning because retinol can make your skin more sensitive to the sun. And be sure to make sure no other products you use will react with the retinol you choose. I hope this helps.
