Brow Pencils

I typically alternate between powder eyeshadow or a brow cream/gel (in the pot) liner, so I haven’t used a brow pencil in awhile, though I’ve had a recent urge to try one.

Full Coverage Foundation

It’s something I struggle to use, I think.  I tend to over-apply, because I’m so used to more medium coverage/buildable coverage formulas! I love when they have a lighter-weight feel and don’t appear caked on, because sometimes you NEED that coverage level.

Brush Sets

When they’re full-sized, I like them, because you can often save a little money compared to buying them separately. I prefer smaller brush sets (3-7 brushes), rather than mega-sets, as mega sets often include shapes/sizes that I would rarely use.  I’m not a fan of minis/travel-sets in general as they tend to be lower in quality, even though I’d love to see more short-handled options out there.

Liquid Lipstick

I love how long they can wear for, but most formulas are at least somewhat drying during the wear!  I love when they’re really pigmented and don’t dry down instantly (but don’t take forever to dry either!).

Finishing Powders

Sometimes they are hard to see, except in person, but they can have a really lovely effect by imparting a more natural finish to the skin that setting powder can often mattify.
