Share: Tell us what you love and hate about Tinted Lip Balm!

my answer: It is rare that a tinted lip balm is both 1) tinted enough to show up, and 2) as or more hydrating than regular lip balm. I’m usually less impressed by this type of product on the whole!

Share: Tell us what you love and hate about Satin Eyeshadows!

my answer: This is one of my favorite finishes, because they’re easier to work with than a lot of mattes but not so shimmery that they’re frosted, which makes them more versatile. Sometimes, though, they have so little shimmer that they look more matte than satin, and I like my satins to have a subtle sheen!

Share: Tell us what you love and hate about Waterproof Eyeliner!

my answer: The formula is often harder and less creamy, so it can be less comfortable to apply, but then they often stay on longer and better with less smudging. Sometimes taking them off can be a real pain!

Share: Tell us what you love and hate about Cream Blush!

my answer: I love the consistency and how easy it is to blend the product on the skin, but sometimes they can look splotchy or uneven, so finding the right formula is trickier than you’d think!

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

my answer: I know they’re sisters, not twins, but man, it can be a challenge getting them to look similar enough that it isn’t too noticeable! They can also be a pain to maintain, depending on your method, and just are always an item on the to-do list, lol! They really do frame the face, though, and once you find the right shape and thickness for your face, they do wonders!

Share: Tell us what you love and hate about Metallic Lipstick!

my answer: The effect can be really cool when it’s done right, but it can be a challenge to wear or produce, because you need it to be hydrating enough that it doesn’t catch on imperfections on the lips while still having that very high-sheen, metallic finish that’s not overly glossy.
