Rant & Rave: NYX

my answer: It can be really hard to find the range in-store, and it can be hard to find certain shades depending on your area. They come out with a lot of new products and a lot of new shades whenever they do, but not all of them are really amazing. They have some great products, but it can be overwhelmed by their misses at times.

my answer: I think they do well in the lip and base categories, and while I love their cream eyeshadows, their powder eyeshadows leave a lot to be desired most of the time. I haven’t been impressed with their more recently released blushes/highlighters.

Rant & Rave: Maybelline

my answer: I love a lot of their lip products and how they have larger color ranges, but they can be inconsistent and have some really strong scents/tastes to them, which is a huge bummer! I love their original range of Color Tattoos but find their LE releases hit or miss.

Rant & Rave: NARS

my answer: Their regular eyeshadow range is really hit or miss–they have done beautiful eyeshadows, but a lot of them have room for improvement. The Audacious Lipstick and Dual Intensity Eyeshadow ranges are nice but get to be pricey relative to the rest of their line. I was deeply disappointed in the quality of their makeup brushes when they were redone.

Rant & Rave: Estee Lauder

Share: Tell us what you love and hate about Estee Lauder!

my answer: I love their newer Pure Color Envy lipstick range. I’d like their skincare, if only it wasn’t so heavily scented. I love their Gelee-based powder products, but I’m not as big of a fan of their regular powder eyeshadows.
