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!

Rant & Rave: Sheer Lipgloss

This Week’s Topic: Sheer Lipgloss!

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

my answer: They’re awesome for layering, but they can run together – they can just be so similar that it’s like, “oh, another sheer gloss?” They usually don’t wear as long either!

Rant & Rave: At-Home Hair Dye

This Week’s Topic: At-Home Hair Dye!

Your Mission: Tell us what you love, hate, or are otherwise indifferent to about at-home hair dye. What drives you bananas? What makes them necessary?

my answer: It’s been YEARS since I’ve used any. I just remember them being kind of messy and a PITA to make sure everything was cleaned up!

Rant & Rave: Potted Lip Balm

This Week’s Topic: Potted Lip Balm!

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

my answer: They seem so unsanitary to me! I’d much rather something in a tube or stick. I do like the textures of potted lip balms, as they tend to be creamier!

Rant & Rave: Loose Glitter

This Week’s Topic: Loose Glitter!

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

my answer: Now that I have Lit Cosmetics’ glitter base, I LOVE it. Before it drove me nuts how pretty it was but how much effort it took to wear it! I wish it was easier to photograph, though – the awesomeness of glitter is hard to show in a still photo!

Rant & Rave: Drugstore Makeup

This Week’s Topic: Drugstore Makeup!

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

my answer: I love how much they’ve improved the quality in the past few years!  There are some really great products out there – but why is it that the ones that are really fantastic are limited edition or produced in small quantities and end up sold out?! What I don’t like is that it is still hard to find really great products… partially because there are a lot of misses still but also because you rarely can touch/play/feel with it prior to purchase.
