Lipstick in general - I’m very proud of myself for not buying any during the sale. I’m trying to slow my roll on new lipstick this year so I can attempt another massive declutter of my hoard. Westman Atelier Lip Suede Hydrating Matte Lipstick with Hyaluronic Acid - despite what I said up there, I was initially on the fence about buying one of these. But when I saw them in person and swatched a tester in-store, the product case annoyed me so much that I wrote all these lipsticks off. It’s too big and bulky for my little paws to comfortably hold. (I mean dang, just how big are Gucci Westman’s hands?) And I hated having to hold the very short-exposed inner tube with one hand while twisting the outer case with the other hand to get the lipstick twisted up or down. And I don’t have dexterity issues; I can’t imagine someone with limited finger/hand mobility trying to use that lipstick. Such a big accessibility design failure. 🤦‍♀️ And, for a brand that claims to care about sustainability, what the heck’s up with the big bulky casing for a product as small as lipstick? It’s not even at least refillable? 🙄 I don’t even care how good (or bad) the actual lipstick formula may be; the casing alone makes this a hard pass. (Clearly I was personally offended by WA’s lipstick case. 😅 ) Danessa Myricks Beauty Groundwork: Blooming Romance - Palette For Eyes, Brows, Face & Lips - this one didn’t offend me at all. I just wasn’t sure how pink it really was until I saw it in person. I decided I don’t really need it. Eh, I might change my mind later this year since it’s got some berries and salmon color, not just the usual pinks—not just another pink palette, thank goodness. Boy Smells Hinoki Fantôme Candle 8.5 oz / 240 g Candle - I do still want to restock this, but I’m making myself work through my kabillion other candles first. Besides, I can get it for free via Nordy Notes, if Nordy still has it in stock when I’m ready to get another one. PATTERN by Tracee Ellis Ross Curl Gel - I got the big pump bottle from Ulta a few days before Sephora’s sale started, so I don’t need more right now. Besides, this is another item I can get for no money OOP at Nordy or Ulta. There’s something else I talked myself out of, but I don’t remember what it was… I had it in my cart a few times and kept taking it out. Eh, I’ll remember eventually.

@pringels I’m somewhere in the tan/medium-deep to deep range of the skin tone spectrum. I’ll list some eyeshadow brands that work well on me. UOMA Beauty - check Ulta (if you’re in the US) for available palettes. Sadly the brand’s in limbo (their founder left last year and the brand stopped producing products), and when Ulta runs out of UOMA products they probably won’t get restocks. The Carnival palette has one of the best yellow matte shadows I’ve ever used, and the rest of the palette’s great too. So are the Allure and Freedom palettes. I can show you some of my palette swatch photos later, if that’ll be helpful. LH Cosmetics - MUA Linda Hallberg’s brand, based in Sweden. If you need big bold rainbow colors, her Color Palette’s got you. Love very sparkly glittery shadows? Linda’s got you there, too: browse her site to see ‘em all. I also love her eyeliners. Danessa Myricks - if you ever find her Lightwork III or Lightwork IV palette at a reputable retailer/reseller, and you love duo/multichrome shadows, then definitely grab one or both of those. (I have and love ‘em both; unfortunately they were limited edition palettes.) Danessa Myricks Beauty Lightwork V: I Am Palette For Eyes And Face is still readily available. Also, consider Danessa Myricks Beauty Colorfix - Multi-Use Eye, Cheek & Lip Waterproof Liquid Pigment Nebula (can’t tag the Colorfixes without picking a specific shade): these are great as cream eyeshadows. Pat McGrath Labs - wait for one of the brand’s sales to try a Mothership palette. (They’re also sold at Nordstrom and Ulta, so you can use Nordy Notes or Ulta points on some of Pat’s products.) Pat’s been stuck in a pink/rose theme for a few years, so you’ll see a lot of that color story in her palettes. I’m a much bigger fan of her older Motherships, especially PAT McGRATH LABS Mothership VI Eyeshadow Palette - Midnight Sun , PAT McGRATH LABS Mothership I Eyeshadow Palette - Subliminal , IV Decadence, and III Subversive. If you need a bold metallic sapphire blue, her Dark Star 006 V4 kit (really just a duo) comes with a great one—though the kit’s overpriced, so definitely wait for a sale on that one. Oh, and her PAT McGRATH LABS FetishEYES™ Longwear Liquid Eyeshadow is quite nice. Natasha Denona - some of my favorite palettes that are still available include Circo Loco, Natasha Denona Yucca Eyeshadow Palette, Natasha Denona Mini Bronze Eyeshadow Palette, Mini Triochrome, and Mini Gold—though I’m not sure that last one’s still available anywhere. I like the Lila and Sunrise palettes. Many people love the Sunset, Glam, and Bronze palettes. The Pastel palette doesn’t work for me (much too chalky-light on me, even by pastel standards). Neither does most of Retro Glam. If you have a local Sephora or Ulta, it’s worth the time to swatch some of Natasha’s palettes to see which ones might work for you. Juvia’s Place - I haven’t bought one of their full size palettes in years, but I can’t leave them off this list. I still love their Masquerade palette. They’ve got many options to choose from. Viseart - this brand still makes my favorite powder matte shadow formula. Editorial Brights is one of my favorite palettes by anyone, and I like several of their other palettes. Viseart has sales a few times a year, so keep an eye out. Beautylish also carries the brand. Melt Cosmetics - my experience with product quality has been hit or miss, but the brand’s worth considering and they’ve got a large fan base for a reason. I like Melt Cosmetics Smoke Sessions Eyeshadow Palette 0.58 oz / 16.47 g a lot, for instance. Terra Moons - now we’re getting more into small indie territory. If you’re a duo/multichrome fan, then consider trying some TM singles. They do also sell palettes but I don’t own one (yet). Instead, I’ve been buying single shadows, especially during their sales. Clionadh - another indie brand that’s famous for duo/multichrome shadows. Their shadow formula’s softer (less densely packed) than Terra Moons’s, so bear that in mind. They’re probably best known for their “stained glass” shadows, which are gorgeous and very color shifty. Do you already have an eyeshadow primer? That can help boost pigmentation of some shadows, plus give your shadows a smooth and/or grippy base to sit on so they won’t fade, bleed, or transfer around. My favorite shadow primer was reformulated (Smashbox’s old 24 Hour Photo Finish Shadow Primer), so I’ve been looking for a worthy replacement. So far, I’ve liked MAC Prep + Prime 24 Hour Eye Base.

@amaliepotts Korean sunscreen is some of the best and usually pretty affordable. I love the Beauty of Joseon Relief Sun. I get it from iHerb or from Korean retailers. It went viral on TikTok I think, and for good reason. Round Lab, Purito, and Biore also make really good sunscreens as well.
