Setting Sprays

I’ve come around to them, because in more extreme environments/weather I can really notice a difference when using some, but the key is to find one that actually works and doesn’t have a heavy feel.

Cream Blush

I love cream blush for often being very blendable, longer-wearing, and intensely pigmented, plus they usually have a soft, natural finish. Some formulas are harder to blend, especially when they are thinner, and look splotchy applied.

Hourglass

They have fantastic blushes and finishing powders, and their foundations and brush ranges are quite nice. I’m not a fan of their newer eyeshadow formula, and I definitely miss their original duos.

Wet 'n' Wild

Their lip products seem to be the more consistent/stronger performer, and while years ago, the eyeshadows were better, I haven’t liked any in recent memory (to the point where I gave up trying to track their new eyeshadow palettes down).

Becca

When they get a formula right, they do an amazing job, but sometimes they seem like they’re replicating their own success (and fail) or copying a trend (and don’t quite nail it). I also think that their line has some holes in it/could be fleshed out more.

Tom Ford

Of course the rant is how expensive products can be! The other is accessibility–it’s hard to find Tom Ford in person unless you live in a larger metro. I really have loved a lot of the formulas I have tried, though I’m not a big fan of the regular eyeshadow quads.
