Rant & Rave: Sheer Lipstick

This Week’s Topic: Sheer Lipstick!

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

my answer: They’re easier to use for every day, but of course, you can always take a more pigmented lipstick and use less of it (or mix it with some balm) for sheerer color. I think that it is easier to have a lipstick that starts of sheer or semi-sheer and use it that way than to blot down a really opaque lipstick than in the case of eyeshadow.

Rant & Rave: Sheer Eyeshadow

This Week’s Topic: Sheer Eyeshadow!

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

my answer: They’re not my cup of tea… ever, really. Pigmented eyeshadow can always be blended or sheered out. It’s rare to find an eyeshadow that’s sheer but actually buildable – that doesn’t wind up looking caked on or powdery. So for me, sheer eyeshadow just doesn’t have a major place in my heart, but I know that for some, they’re much loved!

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.
