Liquid Lipstick

I love how long they can wear for, but most formulas are at least somewhat drying during the wear!  I love when they’re really pigmented and don’t dry down instantly (but don’t take forever to dry either!).

Finishing Powders

Sometimes they are hard to see, except in person, but they can have a really lovely effect by imparting a more natural finish to the skin that setting powder can often mattify.

Lip Scrubs

I love them, but they’re super easy to make yourself, so it feels like a real indulgence spending $10+ on one.  They always sell them in jars that are really quite large and take forever to finish! But I love the effect they have on my lips.

Blush Palettes

I think that they rarely suit a wide variety of skin tones, so I wish when brands did one, they’d consider at least releasing two, if not three, varieties.  Whether they split it up by skin tone (light, medium, dark) or by undertone (cool and warm), it would go a long way. Most blush palettes feel like a variety of pinks and corals that run warmer.

Brown Mascara

On my black lashes, it doesn’t usually look brown, just murky black. I like the concept, though, and I think it should work better for those with naturally lighter-colored lashes.

Gold Eyeshadow

I think gold can be really brightening, both on the innter tear duct as well as on the center of the lid, flanked by darker shades. I wish there were more pewter-y/antique golds that were permanent available, as the typical yellow gold doesn’t always work for everyone.
