Rant & Rave

Share: Tell us what you love and hate about Liquid Eyeshadow!

my answer: I find it the hardest to work with, compared to cream and powder eyeshadows, so it’s never been a formula I reach for in my downtime. It’s usually sheer, dries too quickly, or never dries!

Happy Sunday!

Hope you’ve been having a very lovely weekend thus far! :) My parents popped by for an impromptu visit yesterday (mostly to see Mellan), so that was nice. Last week may have felt like fall, but it’s back to summer in my area–90 degrees or higher! Do you like hotter or warmer temperatures? I always feel like Goldilocks when it comes to weather!
