Rant & Rave: Makeup Palettes

This Week’s Topic: Makeup Palettes

Share: Tell us what you love, hate, or are otherwise indifferent to about makeup palettes! Do you buy them often or avoid them?

my answer: I love the inherent value of makeup palettes, but sometimes they can contain sub-par products rather than a bunch of stellar ones. You might be able to justify so-so quality because of the price, but I know that I won’t reach for it if it’s not great because I do have products that are great in my stash already.

Rant & Rave: Perfume

This Week’s Topic: Perfume

Share: Tell us what you love, hate, or are otherwise indifferent to about perfume! Always use it? Never use it?

my answer: I like perfume, and I love some scents, but I often forget to wear it. And then, sometimes I worry it may bother someone else.

Rant & Rave: Body Scrubs

This Week’s Topic: Body Scrubs

Share: Tell us what you love, hate, or are otherwise indifferent to about body scrubs! Always use it? Never use it? Effective?

my answer: I love ones that aren’t too coarse but aren’t too fine. I like when they stay solid enough that you can work them in, but then they dissolve as you do so, which helps me with timing!

Rant & Rave: Hand Cream

This Week’s Topic: Hand Cream

Share: Tell us what you love, hate, or are otherwise indifferent to about hand cream! Always use it? Never use it? Effective?

my answer: I love, LOVE hand cream, but I’m terrible at consistently using it. I constantly wash my hands, so sometimes it feels like a waste. I’m really trying to at least put it on before bed now.

Rant & Rave: Limited Edition Packaging

This Week’s Topic: Limited Edition Packaging

Share: Tell us what you love, hate, or are otherwise indifferent to about limited edition packaging. Do you prefer it? Does it matter?

my answer: I’m sure this sounds weird, but generally… I don’t like it. I like everything to match, so I think that’s a large part of it. The other part is that I think the kind of aesthetic I like best is rarely done. I really don’t like when a brand creates special boxes and ups the price, because for most of us, that’s something we’ll recycle.
