Share: Tell us what you love and hate about BECCA!
my answer: 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.
Share: Tell us what you love and hate about TOM FORD!
my answer: 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.
Share: Tell us what you love and hate about BAREMINERALS!
my answer: I love their Ready formula for blush/eyeshadows, and even though they’re technically different brands, I like a lot of their Buxom lip products. I really didn’t like their most recent pencil eyeliner formula – that was a rough one.
Share: Tell us what you love and hate about L’OREAL!
my answer: Sometimes they seem really pricey compared to other brands at the drugstore, so I really try to wait for some sort of sale before buying anything. I think they have some really strong formulas in their eye and nail products. I wish their lip products had a better scent.
Share: Tell us what you love and hate about YSL!
my answer: I’ve noticed them repeating in seasonal collections by taking a permanent eyeshadow palette and putting a new cover on it, and I have found it difficult to 100% tell online and only discover it when I open it in person. I like a lot of YSL’s products, but there are some misses–primarily anything that’s powder and supposed to be intensely pigmented.
Share: Tell us what you love and hate about Tarte!
my answer: I wish they had a permanent range of eyeshadows, and then I’d love to see them pull in some of those when they repeat through their limited edition/seasonal palettes.
