Urban Decay

There are a lot of permanent products from Urban Decay that I really love (Vice Lipsticks and 24/7 Eyeliners are some of my go-tos, as far as I can have go-tos!). I’ve found that their seasonal/limited edition launches can be more hit or miss, and they can be repetitive, despite the brand not having THAT many launches per year (like why it is always the same cheek trio?).

Makeup Sponges

I love using a dampened sponge for cream/liquid products for a sheerer effect that seems more “pressed” into my skin, but man, I loathe cleaning sponges!

Makeup Brushes

I still find I prefer natural-hair brushes over synthetic for most eye and cheek application as I find synthetic brushes seem to dig more into powders and create more powderiness/fallout than picking up color. I love makeup brushes, though, and they are my preferred tool for application for pretty much everything except cream/liquid blush/highlighter.

Cream Foundation

I like how they’re often hydrating and more forgiving of skin dryness/texture, though I find I prefer liquid foundation, which can often have similar benefits but I find a little easier to work with overall.

Gift with Purchases

They’re not usually for me! If it’s a full-sized item that I was actually wanting, sure, but most of the time, they’re smaller sizes–samples or minis–and I rarely reach for those.

Sample Sizes

For color cosmetics, I like mini sizes that are still, functionally, plenty of product for regular use–like a mini highighter. I’m not a huge fan of anything that’s only one or two uses, though. I also expect that the quality is the same between a sample size and full-size!

Setting Sprays

I don’t use them very often since I am testing longevity most days, but I’m glad they exist and do reach for them if I’m going to be out all day and wearing makeup that I need to last! I love when they have a very fine mist and don’t take too long to dry down.

Brush Sets

For Japanese brush sets, I wish there was incentive to purchase them, e.g. a discount (even 10%) because then I’d rather buy the type of brushes I need vs. risk experimenting on one I’m not sure about. I like when sets are small and curated, but I find brush sets make the most sense for someone who travels or is starting out (but then I’d start a lower price point) to figure out what they really love/use.

Brow Gels

This is a product I always forget–but should!–use! I love when they help to set my brow hairs in place but don’t feel crunchy. When they’re crunch or heavy, they feel so weird! I tend to prefer clear brow gel as it’s easier to work with.
