Share: Tell us what you love and hate about NARS!

my answer: Their regular eyeshadow range is really hit or miss–they have done beautiful eyeshadows, but a lot of them have room for improvement. The Audacious Lipstick and Dual Intensity Eyeshadow ranges are nice but get to be pricey relative to the rest of their line. I was deeply disappointed in the quality of their makeup brushes when they were redone.

Share: Tell us what you love and hate about Estee Lauder!

my answer: I love their newer Pure Color Envy lipstick range. I’d like their skincare, if only it wasn’t so heavily scented. I love their Gelee-based powder products, but I’m not as big of a fan of their regular powder eyeshadows.

Share: Tell us what you love and hate about Anastasia!

my answer: Though not entirely their “fault,” but they are a brand that feels overly hyped up, no matter what’s being released, even if nobody has tried it yet. Some products I like, but I haven’t found a lot of products I love within this brand.

Share: Tell us what you love and hate about Chanel!

my answer: I used to love a lot of their lip products, but their more recent releases have left me wanting more. I like their newer eyeshadow quads and Illusion d’Ombres, but despite more unique eyeliner shades, their eyeliner formula is painful to use. I love their highlighters, more often than not!

Share: Tell us what you love and hate about Contour Palettes!

my answer: I’d rather see contouring/highlighting duos or quads, geared towards specific skin tones, than larger contouring palettes. I also feel like most brands put out a one-size-fits-all (which is rarely accurate), so they’re not my favorite type of product to see.

Share: Tell us what you love and hate about Guerlain!

my answer: I love so many of their base/face products, along with limited edition highlighters and most of their lip products. Their newer nail lacquer is also excellent, though the shade range could use some less basic, more unique shades in it! I don’t love their eyeshadow formula more often than not (sometimes it is really good, sometimes it is a big miss). I really like how they tend to put out more luxurious packaging with less plastic components. I really wish they had refills for Rouge Gs, and they discontinue formulas very frequently!
