Share: Tell us what you love and hate about Eyeshadow Pencils!
my answer: When they’re really creamy, they’re amazing for quick, easy looks, and they can almost double as an eyeliner (some are better at this secondary task than others). When they’re stiff, they can be really annoying, because even using a brush doesn’t always make it work!
Share: Tell us what you love and hate about Curling Irons!
my answer: My only rant are ones without some sort of stand so it can rest on something when I’m not using it, and ones where the buttons aren’t placed right so it is too easily turned off/adjusted. My rave is they produce very pretty results!

my answer: They’ve come a long way in the past five years, which is a fabulous thing. They’re often more affordable and show more consistency in quality. I don’t find they’re as good with powders (still), even though they’ve improved.
Share: Tell us what you love and hate about Holiday Color Collections!
my answer: Some brands get REALLY repetitive over the years, which is sort of great, as it frees up money for other products, but at the same time, it can get disappointing to see a favorite brand churn out the same standard holiday pieces. I’d love to see more winter-driven takes on holiday, too, and not just your typical red, gold, silver.

my answer: I don’t like when brands make it seem like it’s a great value when it’s not, or when they use more basic items like mascara, eyeliner, brushes, etc. to bump the price up. I think that things like that appeal to some, but for me, I’d rather just the color product! I love that you can often try several shades for the price of one or two full-sized ones, as it’s rare to finish a product (for me).
Share: Tell us what you love and hate about Blush Brushes!
my answer: I don’t like when they’re not cut evenly so they feel rough/scratchy. If they’re too dense, they can pack on too much product. I love them for helping to apply and diffuse cheek color!
