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

my answer: They’re really great to make colors pop as eyeshadow bases or for 2-minute eye looks… but I will say they’re pain to photograph as a lot of them look good from afar but are way less impressive up-close!

Share: Tell us what you love and hate about Felt-Tipped Eyeliners!

my answer: They can hold a lot of product without it getting too thick/runny compared to a regular brush applicator, but sometimes they can be too floppy!

Share: Tell us what you love and hate about Finishing Powders!

my answer: They can add that subtle what-did-you-do-differently effect to the skin, but other times, it’s hard to really tell if they’re doing anything or if you’re just imagining it!

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

my answer: I love how long-wearing they can be and how they last through drinking/eating fairly well, but they can be drying and look uneven on!

This Week’s Topic: Glitter Top Coats (Nail Polish)

Share: Tell us what you love, hate, or are otherwise indifferent to about glittery top coats for your nails! Worth the removal time? Not your thing?

my answer: So much of the beauty of a glitter top coat is in the eye of the beholder… just more so than regular polish, because you have to like not just colors, but the composition, as well as know how you’d layer it.

This Week’s Topic: Makeup Palettes

Share: Tell us what you love, hate, or are otherwise indifferent to about makeup palettes! Do you buy them often or avoid them?

my answer: I love the inherent value of makeup palettes, but sometimes they can contain sub-par products rather than a bunch of stellar ones. You might be able to justify so-so quality because of the price, but I know that I won’t reach for it if it’s not great because I do have products that are great in my stash already.
