Rant & Rave

Share: Tell us what you love and hate about Waterproof Eyeliner!

my answer: Sometimes formulas can be stiffer to get on, though once on, they’re locked in! I also don’t like removing them sometimes as they can be harder than regular eyeliner. They are great if you have watery eyes!

Rant & Rave

Share: Tell us what you love and hate about Pastel Lipsticks & Lipglosses!

my answer: Sometimes they can look really chalky or milky (in the case of gloss, typically) so they’ll settle into lip lines or the white base will be too stark against my skin tone. With enough brightness, they can be really fun to wear!

Rant & Rave

Share: Tell us what you love and hate about Pastel Eyeshadows!

my answer: When they’re REALLY pigmented with smooth consistencies, they can be really fun ways to incorporate color into a look that isn’t neon. I tend to prefer my pastels with some shimmer, just because they’re often better quality! Otherwise, they can be really chalky when they miss!

Rant & Rave

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

my answer: When they’re really creamy, they’re amazing for quick, easy looks, and they can almost double as an eyeliner (some are better at this secondary task than others). When they’re stiff, they can be really annoying, because even using a brush doesn’t always make it work!

Rant & Rave

Share: Tell us what you love and hate about Curling Irons!

my answer: My only rant are ones without some sort of stand so it can rest on something when I’m not using it, and ones where the buttons aren’t placed right so it is too easily turned off/adjusted. My rave is they produce very pretty results!

Rant & Rave

Share: Tell us what you love and hate about Synthetic Makeup Brushes!

my answer: They’ve come a long way in the past five years, which is a fabulous thing. They’re often more affordable and show more consistency in quality. I don’t find they’re as good with powders (still), even though they’ve improved.
