    thanks for this christine. i love reading what the makeup artists use on the runways. but how you used paint sticks? there are so many pro products at the pro stores, you just don’t know if they actually use those stuff like chromacakes? and for the gloss in the pro stores, what’s the difference between the gloss(the ones with the really pointy tips) and the lipglass?

    • Hey Victoria! I have not used them beyond swatchingn a few at the PRO store. Gloss is made to be mixed with other things, I think that’s the biggest difference, and it can be used in different areas beyond the lips.
