Rant & Rave

Share: Tell us what you love and hate about Scented Nail Polish!

my answer: It kind of creeps me out, personally. There’s something about getting odd hints of something-rather with polish-esque scents randomly throughout the day that doesn’t do it for me!

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

my answer: It’s not a product I use often, as I don’t get too oily until 10-12 hours after wearing makeup. I usually just use a pressed powder as my blotting powder, so I don’t have too much to say here!

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

my answer: For highlighting specific areas of the face, I prefer them over liquids, but for mixing in foundations, I find liquids to blend more easily with the existing base product (moisturizer or foundation).

Share: Tell us what you love and hate about Eyebrow Pencils!

my answer: I wish they weren’t quite as stiff–so many brow pencils seem like you have to tug a lot just to get some color out. I like that you can get a more precise line, though!

Share: Tell us what you love and hate about Teeth Whitening!

my answer: It’s not something I consider traditionally part of beauty, but it really is part of my beauty routine, as I’m a heavy coffee drinker so whitening is a necessity when wearing certain lip colors. It’s never that comfortable to wear, and to avoid causing sensitivity (or too much of it), I have to go for slower, more drawn out options!

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

my answer: It is rare that a tinted lip balm is both 1) tinted enough to show up, and 2) as or more hydrating than regular lip balm. I’m usually less impressed by this type of product on the whole!
