What was your first eyeshadow palette? How do you feel about it now?

I don’t remember the exact palette, but I’m pretty sure it was a MAC holiday palette, likely around 2005! I still think they were some of the brand’s better holiday palettes/quads re: quality relative to what came years later, so I’d probably enjoy it enough but wouldn’t be wowed.

What was your first makeup product? How do you feel about it now?

What was your first makeup product? How do you feel about it now?

It was either Benefit Show Offs (loose, shimmery eyeshadows) or a few MAC eyeshadows (I think Bronze, Antiqued, maybe Goldmine?). I actually still love all those MAC eyeshadows, but it’s been a minute since I’ve thought about Show Offs. I think I’d like them still but wouldn’t use them due...

Matte Bronzer

I like that you can get more depth and true-to-pan color when applied over the right base products. Like most matte powders, they can darken noticeably when applied to bare skin or anything that it’s really dry/matte already, so they’re not as versatile, can be harder to blend, and then require adding more product on top make it look skin-like again.
