Rant & Rave: Liquid Concealer

This Week’s Topic: Liquid Concealer!

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

my answer: They’re super easy to blend out/spread out over the skin, and they can have an illusion of being more moisturizing (whether they are or not is dependent on the formula). It can be easy to get too much out of the container, though.

Rant & Rave: Tinted Lip Balm

This Week’s Topic: TINTED LIP BALM!

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

my answer: I prefer mine clear, just because when I wear lip balm, I want clear, and when I want something colored, I’ll opt for lipstick.

Rant & Rave: Jelly Nail Polishes

This Week’s Topic: JELLY NAIL POLISHES!

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

my answer: I love how squishy they look! I’m not a huge fan of sheer polish overall, though some shades I like, so I love jelly finishes that are more opaque.

Rant & Rave: Natural Mascara

This Week’s Topic: NATURAL MASCARA!

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

my answer: Natural mascaras are great for barely-there looks when you don’t have a lot of time or don’t want to wear a lot of makeup. They also work well as a layering mascara–you can get some really nice length and separation without the clumping.

Rant & Rave: Green Eyeshadow

This Week’s Topic: GREEN EYESHADOW!

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

my answer: I’m a huge fan of green eyeshadow–it’s definitely one of my go-tos, particularly because I think it’s more flattering against my skin tone. I do hate how they can sometimes stain the skin, though!

Rant & Rave: Repromotes

This Week’s Topic: REPROMOTES!

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

my answer: It’s a great opportunity to pick up a product you may have missed, but if a “new” collection is full of them, then it feels like it’s a lazy/poorly thought out launch. On the other hand, it means less potential money spent!
