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!

Share: Tell us what you love and hate about Neutral Eyeshadow Palettes!

my answer: I think the obvious one is that there aren’t enough cool-toned options out there. But in general, I really love them as I like my neutrals, and as I am warm-toned, I do have a lot options available to me.

Share: Tell us what you love and hate about Brow Powders!

my answer: Tone can be really important, and I think that a lot of brands think 2-3 shades is enough to cover… everyone… but I think brow lines should be more expansive. Thankfully, brow powder is a lot like regular powder eyeshadow, and those ranges can have a lot more possibilities! But it is a must for me to fill in my brows!

Share: Tell us what you love and hate about Rollerball Perfumes!

my answer: I think they’re amazing for traveling, unless they’re poorly packaged and leak everywhere! They can get expensive (relative to full bottles), though. If you like a lot of scents and can’t commit, they’re a nice way to play around with different scents without buying full bottles, but again, the price per ounce is a lot higher!

Share: Tell us what you love and hate about spring beauty collections!

my answer: Sometimes they can run together when brands stick too closely to typical spring themes (e.g. pastels) – I like when brands mix elements of what you think of when you think of spring with something unusual. I love the textures of spring, though.
