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!

Rant & Rave: Nail Files

This Week’s Topic: NAIL FILES!

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

my answer: I’m absolutely in LOVE with glass nail files! One of the better new-to-me tools I’ve come across in the past few years. I bought my first one maybe two or three years ago, and I love how it lasts and lasts.
