Share: Tell us what you love and hate about Eye Brushes!
my answer: One of my favorite brushes is MAC’s 239, and surprisingly, it’s not duped by 400 brands, and I don’t know why. I could just get by with this brush for all areas of the eye if I needed to (and when I first got into makeup, I did). I find a lot of the eyeshadow brushes designed for initially packing/patting on eyeshadow to be either too small or too large, and I’d love to see more medium-sized, moderately flat/firm brushes (but not so firm or flat that they’re more like cream eyeshadow brushes).
Share: Tell us what you love and hate about Crease Brushes!
my answer: There is such a fine line between tapered and pointed, fluffy and barely-there. I love that there is SO much variety in the types of crease brushes one can try, but I find they can really depend on preference, eye shape, and application style so it can be hard to purchase sight unseen! The one thing I really don’t like is when they feel scratchy or rough, because they’re a fluffier brush, sometimes I feel like it can be more pronounced.
Share: Tell us what you love and hate about Face Brushes!
my answer: When face brushes shed (more than just initially), it drives me bananas! Those little hairs can be a total pain to remove from the face. Really dense face brushes can also be a challenge to clean, as so much product can get trapped in-between the bristles, so then they take awhile to dry. I love all the various shapes and options there are, though!
Share: Tell us what you love and hate about Makeup Brush Sets!
my answer: A lot of brush sets are, unfortunately, inferior in quality compared to the full-sized ones or ones sold individually, so that is the biggest downside. I love when companies create sets of brushes without sacrificing quality, as you can often get a slight discount, and you can also get a good idea of what brushes are must-haves.
Share: Tell us what you love and hate about Refillable Lipsticks!
my answer: I know I own a few formulas that are supposed to be refillable, but honestly, I don’t know that I’ve ever purchased a refill for one! I like the concept, and if you’re on a budget, sometimes you can just buy the refill and nothing else – so you can escape some of the packaging costs. I know I’ve done that with Guerlain’s Mythic powder (just the pan, not the pan + compact).
Share: Tell us what you love and hate about Eyeshadow Pans!
my answer: I love the versatility of buying just individual pans of eyeshadows, because you can create your own palettes, take a few with you, or take a lot with you! I also like that they’re often a little cheaper than buying the individual eyeshadow in its own compact. Now, when they’re the same price as the individual shadow in the compact, then I get annoyed!
