Marc Jacobs Steel(etto) for sure–it’s hard to find cooler-toned palettes, period, and I love me a good taupe eyeshadow (warm or cool). I was so surprised, in a good way, that it wored so well!
If it’s really bad–like I have to remove my makeup because it was so bad–then not much. If it’s something like a glittery eyeshadow that doesn’t work as-is but works pretty well with a setting spray or a wet brush, that’s all good with me (as a consumer, not necessarily as a reviewer!). In a way, if a typical “fix” works and doesn’t require a total change-up of my routine or technique, I don’t mind. However, if I already have something like it that works well for me as-is, then I wouldn’t want to work that hard to make something similar work–might as well just use the better one!
I enjoy the FEELING of a clean, makeup-free face, but there are moments where big sighs are heaved knowing I have to take it all off.
I love eye makeup! I love playing with color combos and finishes, so that’s the part of my routine that I definitely look forward to. It’s close, though, to the moment where everything comes together in a complete look.
I schedule the QOTD posts 1-2 weeks in advance, so this answer is coming to you written on 2/9 technically… but the Marc Jacobs Steel(etto) palette, which is a cooler toned, more taupe-leaning palette… and performed incredibly well!!
I don’t; if you don’t use it, what’s the point? If you’re not using it, then its purpose has to be something other than just sitting in a drawer — it should be displayed or used in some other way. I’ve learned over the years that there’s always another product that’ll catch my fancy, so even if I eventually use something up and can’t replace it exactly, there are so many awesome shades that I want to use that maybe it’s just time to move on!
