They always feel late to the party (to a trend or a release) and too often been a disappointment, aka not worth the wait at all. I love their highlighters but little else gets regular use from me these days.

Urban Decay

I think they’ve improved their packaging over the years–though they could go slimmer sometimes still!–and I feel like I’ve seen more color, too, but I’d love to see less mega-palettes during the holidays and more, well-curated sets and six to nine-pan palettes instead.

ColourPop

They have a lot of releases, and now that they’ve been around for a few years, some shades seem familiar or just marginally tweaked from a release before, which is inevitable with brands producing a lot of shades over time. I do love their overall business model and ability to respond quickly to trends and market demands with quality products (most of the time) at affordable prices.

Eyeshadow Primer

Sometimes, there is a bit of a trial and error process as not all primers work equally well with all eyeshadow formulas! But I have little to complain otherwise–they tend to do their job: improve the wear of my eye makeup, make application better and improve pigmentation of weaker eyeshadows.

Stick Foundations

I like their coverage and portability, but it can be hard to get an even amount of product each application so there is some trial and error. Sometimes, if they are too creamy, they sink into lines, but if they aren’t creamy enough, they’re hard to blend out.
