Rant & Rave

Share: Tell us what you love and hate about Twist-Up Eyeliners!

my answer: I love that they’re often really creamy, soft, pigmented, and you don’t need to sharpen (so you won’t waste anything), but they’re all soooo tiny in amount. It’s hard to believe that with a regular pencil (0.04 oz. vs. 0.01 oz.) you’re sharpening away that much product!

Share: Tell us what you love and hate about Bright Lipstick!

my answer: I love how it can be the focal point of a look, because it can take a couple of minutes to apply and then you’re done with your look! It’s a nice way to look “put together” with less effort. They can sometimes be high maintenance, though.

Share: Tell us what you love and hate about Mattifying Face Primers!

my answer: Sometimes they’re packed with too many silicones, which almost feels like a fake… velvety feel to me? I think I can be pickier with the texture of silicone-heavy products. I love that they help keep makeup lasting longer!

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

my answer: Five years ago, I probably would have said, “What’s the point?” For the past couple of years, though, I’m all about a great finishing powder! They really do finish a look–and I think the effect is more noticeable in person, as it gives skin the look of real skin.

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.
