What are your favorite methods for reviving old products? (Like saving a dry gel eyeliner!)
I’ve only microwaved a gel/cream eyeshadow, though nowadays I would use some of the products (I think Inglot has something) or a mixing medium to help bring it back!

Do you think you’ll ever fall out of love with makeup? Share!
I don’t think so! I think it is both an exercise in creativity as well as a way to add a little extra confidence on a day when you’re not feeling your best. I could see being more or less “into it” in regards to caring or watching about new products vs. just using what you have and love over time, though (assuming I no longer blogged).

Share: Tell us what you love and hate about Blotting Powders!
my answer: It’s not a product I use often, as I don’t get too oily until 10-12 hours after wearing makeup. I usually just use a pressed powder as my blotting powder, so I don’t have too much to say here!
