Rant & Rave

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!

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!
