Cream Blushes

I love when they dry down enough not to feel tacky or slippery on my skin but have a nice luminosity/dewiness to them. I’ll reach for a powder blush if I want something more matte, so when I opt for cream blush, I want some dew!

Cream Eyeshadows

They seem really fantastic for one-and-done looks, which I don’t really do (lover of Multi-Shade Looks that I am). I love more cream-to-powder formulas as they work well for multi-shade looks, though, and sometimes, you can get a more intense sparkle or metallic finish from a cream than a powder. Not a fan of ones that dry down so much that they can be prone to flaking off!

Lipgloss

I love how shiny they are on the lips and how they can often smooth/add the illusion of volume. The downside is that a lot of formulas can settle into lip lines or not last that long.

Shimmery Lipstick

I find that frosted/metallic shimmer tends to emphasize my lip lines and can be harder to wear without a gloss on top. I love some pearl, though, typically with a more luminous finish.

Shimmery Eyeshadow

There’s something to dislike?? I love shimmery eyeshadow! I find there can be so much nuance in the finish, sheen, texture, effect, etc. Mattes are necessary, and I definitely have love for them, but the way I love shimmer eyeshadow is just unbeatable!

Shimmery Blush

I prefer some shimmer in my blushes as I find they are easier to build up, blend out, and are more foolproof overall! They also tend to go on more easily over base products without having to worry about setting first.

Shimmery Bronzer

I find they are easier to blend, but I like a lower-level shimmer, like satin or pearl, so it is more luminous and “skin-like” but not overly shimmery. If it gets too shimmery, then I think it’s less of a bronzer and more of a highlighting/bronzer hybrid.

NARS

I’ve had more flops from NARS in the last year or so than I would have expected, so that’s been disappointing. I also feel they rely too much on the same types of colors, like Laguna or Orgasm, and they have a much fuller blush/bronzer range to highlight. I like how edited their seasonal launches usually are.

ColourPop

I love that they put out affordable products that are usually decent to good (sometimes excellent!), but the hard part is they release a lot and discontinue things without notice. It feels like there’s hardly a permanent range!
