Rant & Rave: Loose Highlighters

This Week’s Topic: Loose Highlighters!

Your Mission: Tell us what you love, hate, or are otherwise indifferent to about loose highlighters. What drives you bananas? What makes them necessary?

my answer: If they’re finely-milled and have the right packaging, they can look really lovely on the skin–but they do tend to yield clouds of shimmering dust every time you open them!

Rant & Rave: Sheer Nail Lacquer

This Week’s Topic: Sheer Nail Lacquer!

Your Mission: Tell us what you love, hate, or are otherwise indifferent to about sheer nail lacquer. What drives you bananas? What makes them necessary?

my answer: I’ve definitely come around and have learned to appreciate a sheer nail polish (assuming it was intended to be sheer!), so long as they aren’t streaky!

Rant & Rave: Long-Wearing Liquid Lipstick

This Week’s Topic: Long-Wearing Liquid Lipstick

Your Mission: Tell us what you love, hate, or are otherwise indifferent to about long-wearing liquid lipstick. What drives you bananas? What makes them necessary?

my answer: It’s great that they last a much longer time than most regular lipsticks, but so often, they are hard to reapply, because they wear away unevenly or flake away.

Rant & Rave: Ultra Black Eyeliner

This Week’s Topic: Ultra Black Eyeliner

Your Mission: Tell us what you love, hate, or are otherwise indifferent to about ultra black eyeliners. What drives you bananas? What makes them necessary?

my answer: Sometimes they’re TOO bold for a look and can make my eyes appear smaller. A lot of the time, though, they can add definition!

Rant & Rave: Doe-Foot Applicators

This Week’s Topic: Doe-Foot Applicators!

Your Mission: Tell us what you love, hate, or are otherwise indifferent to about doe-foot applicators. What drives you bananas? What makes them necessary?

my answer: The only time I’ve had a problem with them is if it’s a cheaper one, so it tends to be harder/sharper and less comfortable to use. For the most part, they work well!

Rant & Rave: Eye Cream

This Week’s Topic: Eye Cream!

Your Mission: Tell us what you love, hate, or are otherwise indifferent to about eye cream. What drives you bananas? What makes them necessary?

my answer: I very rarely use them, because most of the ones I’ve tried seem to really, really burn the area around my eyes (like underneath the eye, orbital bone). I like the textures!
