What is your favorite brand for makeup brushes? Who makes the best brushes and why? What’s so incredible about the brand’s brushes?
temptalia asks you
How do you keep track of your stash? How do you remember what you bought? Do you have a spreadsheet or do you just remember from memory?
Memory! I tried to do a spreadsheet, but I’m too lazy.
What was the first makeup product you bought? What item began your collection?
I think my first makeup product were some random glitters from a shop in Santa Cruz… if not those, then Benefit cream shadows
What makeup are you wearing right now? What’s your look/face of the day?
At this very moment, nothing but Olay Complete SPF15, because I’m about to go for a jog and only woke up a short while ago. No makeup needed for a run in the park!
How truthful do you think magazine reviews are? Are you a cynic who believes they were paid reviews, or do you delight in getting a professional opinion to help you decide what’s worth getting and what’s not?
What was the best gift you’ve ever received? What made it so outsanding — something sentimental, the item itself, what?
For me, while I have received a great many wonderful gifts, I think one of the most sentimental gifts was a sterling silver heart-shaped locket my boyfriend gave me for my birthday/anniversary in 2006. We were in a long-distance relationship, so I used to wear it everyday so I would have him close to my heart. I wear it still, but less often, as we live together, and I know he’s near.
P.S. — What does everyone have lined up for the weekend? My boyfriend and I are meeting with my parents who are coming into town, and then I’ll be spending the day/afternoon at my parents’ house (um, laundry!).
