Rant & Rave

Share: Tell us what you love and hate about Synthetic Makeup Brushes!

my answer: They’ve come a long way in the past five years, which is a fabulous thing. They’re often more affordable and show more consistency in quality. I don’t find they’re as good with powders (still), even though they’ve improved.

Share: Tell us what you love and hate about Holiday Color Collections!

my answer: Some brands get REALLY repetitive over the years, which is sort of great, as it frees up money for other products, but at the same time, it can get disappointing to see a favorite brand churn out the same standard holiday pieces. I’d love to see more winter-driven takes on holiday, too, and not just your typical red, gold, silver.

Share: Tell us what you love and hate about Holiday Palettes & Sets!

my answer: I don’t like when brands make it seem like it’s a great value when it’s not, or when they use more basic items like mascara, eyeliner, brushes, etc. to bump the price up. I think that things like that appeal to some, but for me, I’d rather just the color product! I love that you can often try several shades for the price of one or two full-sized ones, as it’s rare to finish a product (for me).

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

my answer: I don’t like when they’re not cut evenly so they feel rough/scratchy. If they’re too dense, they can pack on too much product. I love them for helping to apply and diffuse cheek color!

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

my answer: Getting it off can be a total pain! It can also look dry or brittle applied. I love that it wears longer, though, and you don’t have to worry about your eyes watering.

Share: Tell us what you love and hate about Reward or Loyalty Programs!

my answer: I don’t like when they barely give you any rewards/loyalty perks. It seems useless on their end to bother maintaining the program! I only like the programs where you can get money to apply to future purchases, money off other purchases, or exclusive coupons/codes.
