Has your beauty budget increased or decreased in recent years?

It’s increased overall, though this year seems to be running a little under the last few years–we’ll have to see how the year closes out, and then I can actually try to dive into the details to see why (I’m very curious).

What brand’s holiday collection do you look forward to most?

What brand’s holiday collection do you look forward to most?

These days, definitely Pat McGrath since there’s a plethora of eyeshadow to indulge in (my favorite category). It would be shortly followed by Natasha Denona (particularly since I think the formulas have improved in the last two years). I’m also a big fan of Bite’s sets!
