Rant & Rave: Dior

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

my answer: I think they do well in the lip and base categories, and while I love their cream eyeshadows, their powder eyeshadows leave a lot to be desired most of the time. I haven’t been impressed with their more recently released blushes/highlighters.

Rant & Rave: Maybelline

my answer: I love a lot of their lip products and how they have larger color ranges, but they can be inconsistent and have some really strong scents/tastes to them, which is a huge bummer! I love their original range of Color Tattoos but find their LE releases hit or miss.

Rant & Rave: NARS

my answer: Their regular eyeshadow range is really hit or miss–they have done beautiful eyeshadows, but a lot of them have room for improvement. The Audacious Lipstick and Dual Intensity Eyeshadow ranges are nice but get to be pricey relative to the rest of their line. I was deeply disappointed in the quality of their makeup brushes when they were redone.

Rant & Rave: Estee Lauder

Share: Tell us what you love and hate about Estee Lauder!

my answer: I love their newer Pure Color Envy lipstick range. I’d like their skincare, if only it wasn’t so heavily scented. I love their Gelee-based powder products, but I’m not as big of a fan of their regular powder eyeshadows.

Rant & Rave: Anastasia

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

my answer: Though not entirely their “fault,” but they are a brand that feels overly hyped up, no matter what’s being released, even if nobody has tried it yet. Some products I like, but I haven’t found a lot of products I love within this brand.
