Loose Powder Brushes

I used to feel like they were all too big, and often, almost all the same shape, but now, I feel like we have so much variety in brush shapes, sizes, and styles to choose from that I have no general rants. I do prefer flatter, moderately dense brushes for loose powder, though!

Loose Blush

I love how finely-milled loose blush often is, but I am such a pressed powder person for convenience/mess/ease.

Brow Pencils

I typically alternate between powder eyeshadow or a brow cream/gel (in the pot) liner, so I haven’t used a brow pencil in awhile, though I’ve had a recent urge to try one.

Brow Gel

When they actually hold without getting super-crunchy, so love them.  Nothing to rant about except the crunchy ones!

Full Coverage Foundation

It’s something I struggle to use, I think.  I tend to over-apply, because I’m so used to more medium coverage/buildable coverage formulas! I love when they have a lighter-weight feel and don’t appear caked on, because sometimes you NEED that coverage level.

Brush Sets

When they’re full-sized, I like them, because you can often save a little money compared to buying them separately. I prefer smaller brush sets (3-7 brushes), rather than mega-sets, as mega sets often include shapes/sizes that I would rarely use.  I’m not a fan of minis/travel-sets in general as they tend to be lower in quality, even though I’d love to see more short-handled options out there.
