Beautiful Beginnings with Dior

What was the first Dior product you ever tried?  Did it pave way for a real romance or did it put you off the brand entirely?  What was the first Dior product you purchased?  Did you love it? Hate it? Still own it?

my answer:  One of the first Dior products I ever tried was a pretty spring highlighter/blush from the Flower Blossom collection. It was very pretty! I think the first product I fell in love with were the Dior Skin Shimmers. Absolutely gorgeous highlighters for the skin–always glowy and delicate, never overdone or frosty.

Beautiful Beginnings with Stila

What was the first Stila product you ever tried?  Did it pave way for a real romance or did it put you off the brand entirely?  What was the first Stila product you purchased?  Did you love it? Hate it? Still own it?

my answer:  The first product I really fell head-over-heels for was their Barbie palette. I remember it was one of the first A+ products on the blog.  It was SO phenomenal! I haven’t tried as many products from Stila in the past year or two, though I enjoyed their Sparkle eyeliners.

Beautiful Beginnings with China Glaze

What was the first China Glaze product you ever tried?  Did it pave way for a real romance or did it put you off the brand entirely?  What was the first China Glaze product you purchased?  Did you love it? Hate it? Still own it?

my answer:  I’ve been in love with China Glaze since I first tried it! My initial shades were Tree Hugger and Secret Peri-winkle. Then it was the Rodeo Diva collection where I loved Wagon Trail. Cheap, good formula, and huge color range–what’s not to love?

Beautiful Beginnings with Bare Escentuals

What was the first Bare Escentuals product you ever tried?  Did it pave way for a real romance or did it put you off the brand entirely?  What was the first Bare Escentuals product you purchased?  Did you love it? Hate it? Still own it?

my answer:  I really hadn’t had much experience with the brand until the past year or so.  The first products I tested were their High Shines, which had fantastic color and payoff but awful packaging.  Next was their skincare (which I guess is technically bareMinerals), which I adore and still adore!  I’ve come to appreciate the brand, and eventually, I’ll try their loose eyeshadows.

Beautiful Beginnings with Illamasqua

What was the first Illamasqua product you ever tried?  Did it pave way for a real romance or did it put you off the brand entirely?  What was the first Illamasqua product you purchased?  Did you love it? Hate it? Still own it?

my answer:  One of the coolest things about Illamasqua is that it’s one of the newer brands, so I get to say I was an early adopter!  The first products I tried were their nail varnishes, followed by their matte lipsticks and matte blushes.  I love the theme and aesthetic of Illamasqua, and they’ve always been a pleasure to work with.

Beautiful Beginnings with Tarte

What was the first Tarte product you ever tried?  Did it pave way for a real romance or did it put you off the brand entirely?  What was the first Tarte product you purchased?  Did you love it? Hate it? Still own it?

my answer:  I had never tried Tarte before having the blog, so the first product I reviewed on the blog was Tarte’s Purse Your Lips Lipgloss Clutch back in 2008. I loved that you were able to get so many glosses to try, though they were fairly tiny! Next, I tried an eyeshadow palette which was so-so. I’m still kind of waiting to fall in love with Tarte you could say. I do like their new Amazonian Blushes, even if they don’t live up to their over-the-top 12-hour claim.
