Frost Lipsticks

I love a shimmery lipstick! I really do! However, when it gets to be too frosted–where it is a bit lighter and almost metallic–it can emphasize lip lines or have issues where the shimmer travels, neither of which I’m a fan of.

Lip Balms

Lip balms that FEEL great going on but wear away in an hour two are really frustrating, as are ones that feel hydrating as long as they last but don’t seem to improve lips for the long-term. I love when they are smooth, lightweight, and wear a good amount of time.

Hair Dryers

My biggest rant is any dryer where my long hair gets pulled into the back of the dryer, because OW OW OW! I don’t like when they’re super loud (most are much quieter these days). The technology has come a long way, so they dry hair faster than ever, and I’m a huge fan of saving time!

Face Primers

Nothing is coming to mind about them to dislike… I like how they often make the skin look and feel smoother, make base products last longer, and are easy to apply.

Color Correctors

I haven’t used these extensively, and less so in the last year or so. I think the only noticeable area that could benefit from it on me is my redder cheeks, but liquid foundation is usually enough for me, so the extra step of color correcting doesn’t appeal to me as much. I’m glad they exist, as they are useful for some!

Sponge Applicators

For the face, I think sponge applicators are still really useful, especially if they’re more durable so you can get more than a few uses out of them. Ones for the eyes I find less useful in a day-to-day routine, since they are harder to use (too large for me/the sponge often pulls away from the plastic holder) to really get a nuanced eye look.
