Rant & Rave

Share: Tell us what you love and hate about WATERPROOF EYELINERS!

my answer: The only thing I have to complain about (and it’s not really a complaint) is that they are harder to remove, so you have to go straight to your best makeup remover. Otherwise, all raves!

Share: Tell us what you love and hate about STICK CONCEALERS!

my answer: I love that they tend to be more opaque and full coverage, and they blend well without sheering out, but they can be heavier and sink into fine lines or appear caky.

Share: Tell us what you love and hate about SETTING SPRAYS!

my answer: I’ve come around to them, because in more extreme environments/weather I can really notice a difference when using some, but the key is to find one that actually works and doesn’t have a heavy feel.

Share: Tell us what you love and hate about CREAM BLUSH!

my answer: I love cream blush for often being very blendable, longer-wearing, and intensely pigmented, plus they usually have a soft, natural finish. Some formulas are harder to blend, especially when they are thinner, and look splotchy applied.

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

my answer: They have fantastic blushes and finishing powders, and their foundations and brush ranges are quite nice. I’m not a fan of their newer eyeshadow formula, and I definitely miss their original duos.

Share: Tell us what you love and hate about WET ‘N’ WILD!

my answer: Their lip products seem to be the more consistent/stronger performer, and while years ago, the eyeshadows were better, I haven’t liked any in recent memory (to the point where I gave up trying to track their new eyeshadow palettes down).
