Rant & Rave

Share: Tell us what you love and hate about how eyeshadow palettes are packaged!

my answer: I don’t like bulky palettes that are heavy, thick, or unnecessarily large. I’d rather things like mascara, eyeliners, etc. be minimized with a palette so that it can be slimmer and more compact. I can always toss the mascara and eyeliner into my makeup bag of other random things (like gloss, lipstick, brushes, etc.). I love when an eyeshadow palette contains enough shades, colors, and finishes to be used on its own without anything else and is slim for traveling!

Share: Tell us what you love and hate about Summer Color Collections!

my answer: Seasonal collections are fun but they can be boring, because there are always a few trends/colors that repeat depending on the season.

Share: Tell us what you love and hate about Duochrome Nail Polish!

my answer: I don’t like them when they’re really subtle, because I think they end up looking cooler in the bottle than on. I want it to be strong and noticeable no matter the lighting!

Share: Tell us what you love and hate about blush/cheek stains!

my answer: I feel like they so rarely look good paired with foundation, so you really have to have good skin naturally wear them and enjoy them!

Share: Tell us what you love and hate about Beauty Ads!

my answer: I like when brands put together interesting shoots with their latest products, but I think it’s important that it is a cohesive campaign – I want to see breakdowns or breakouts of what was used, behind-the-scenes footage, etc. It helps to reinforce that the products were actually used on set and how you can “get the look.” I don’t like when you can’t see any texture on the skin.

Share: Tell us what you love and hate about BB Creams!

my answer: I feel short-changed that what we get sold as BB Creams here in the U.S. are largely NOT really BB creams, so I think it’s muddied the waters and not given us the product that has done so well overseas. As a result, I just haven’t been that interested in trying them.
