How important is it for packaging to be sturdy enough to travel with?

How important is it for packaging to be sturdy enough to travel with?

For my personal life, not at all. I just need it to hold its shape in a drawer as I very rarely travel (and tend to avoid it at all costs!). ideally, though, I’d want something that could withstand being put into a makeup bag and packed securely (e.g. wrapped with clothes).

What would you like to see next in the world of powder blush?

There aren’t enough satin-to-pearl finish blushes, especially in a real light-to-dark spectrum of shades and undertones. I love when blush adds a subtle glow to my skin but can still be layered with highlighter (of all intensities).

What would you like to see next when it comes to highlighters?

I’d love to see more highlighting blushes, but I’d almost like to see this as a full-on trend/product launch, where there’s real thought into making the underlying blush color work with the highlighting effect. I’m thinking in the vein of products like Dior Hologlam, where it really feels...

How willing are you to make a product “work” for you?

How willing are you to make a product “work” for you?

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!)....

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!!
