Criticize me! :-)

Hey people, new member here but I've been practicing retouching for a little while now. Just looking for some feedback. I'll be posting a couple works, most are WIP. Thanks

Most of it looks good. Lil notch in the upper left of the bottom section. Entire top section needs to be reworked or left alone to match perspective.

Re: Criticize me! :-)

When you changed the perspective of the top of the compact you basically laid it flat, instead of raised as it was in the original photograph. However in doing so you did not change the reflection to match the new positioning of the mirror in relation to the "puff" and bottom of the compact. You now have an image reflected in the mirror that is impossible to achieve in reality.

The mirror needs a bit of definition as well. I would put a very light gradient from the top (dark) to roughly 1/4 to 1/3 down the mirror (white) to help define the surface of the mirror.

When possible get a new prop for your photograph and set it up as close to how you want it to appear, then do a number of slightly different shots of the product to have alternates to choose from. Your original photo leaves a lot to be desired, and while your reworking it is good there are parts of it that no longer look like a photograph but a vector illustration.
