Rant & Rave

Share: Tell us what you love and hate about Gift with Purchases!

my answer: I love when they’re larger sizes, whether half-size or full-size, rather than a bunch that are really, really small (like packets of skin care). They can be great ways to stock-up on travel-friendly favorites for quick weekend trips.

Share: Tell us what you love and hate about Tweezers!

my answer: I don’t like when they dull really quickly! I love a great slanted edge with a slight point that isn’t too sharp but is still enough to grab even the tiniest hairs.

Share: Tell us what you love and hate about Flat Irons!

my answer: I don’t use a flat iron regularly, but one thing I don’t like is when it is too easy to burn your fingers because of how certain things are placed or sized. I love that they’re pretty easy to use, though, and have an easy learning curve!

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!
