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

my answer: I very rarely use it! I prefer a grayer contour powder for contouring, so the only time I really use bronzer is when I’m testing one for review, but it’s not a product I actually reach for. I’m starting to come around on them, though, after trying many more recently.

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

my answer: I think liquid eyeliner is often more about the applicator than the formula! There are a lot of great formulas out there, so then it comes down to the applicator.

Share: Tell us what you love and hate about Stick Blushes!

my answer: I feel like they seem convenient, but they still end up being a product that’s better applied with fingertips or a brush, so then it’s more like a potted cream blush – which I think has a larger surface area usually so it’s easier to get your brush in it! Sometimes they’re not creamy enough to blend out easily.

Share: Tell us what you love and hate about Face Sunscreens!

my answer: It can be quite the process to find one that has the right consistency, that isn’t too expensive (so you can use it liberally without fear), doesn’t leave a white cast, and can work with photography.

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

my answer: I don’t think I’ve ever come across one that I really like. If you use lip brushes normally, I think that’s more the market it serves. I rarely use a lip brush to apply lipstick, so lipstick in a tube is more convenient for me.

Share: Tell us what you love and hate about how eyeshadow palettes are packaged!

my answer: I don’t like bulky palettes that are heavy, thick, or unnecessarily large. I’d rather things like mascara, eyeliners, etc. be minimized with a palette so that it can be slimmer and more compact. I can always toss the mascara and eyeliner into my makeup bag of other random things (like gloss, lipstick, brushes, etc.). I love when an eyeshadow palette contains enough shades, colors, and finishes to be used on its own without anything else and is slim for traveling!
