What was the last eyeshadow look you put together and loved?

I loved this shimmery, more muted rainbow eye I did with Clionadh eyeshadows a couple of weeks ago — it wasn’t even intentional to do a rainbow gradient of color! — Christine Join Discussion [Author: Christine]

If you had to, which blush would you let go of first?

Obviously, I have a bajillion, so I could pick a dozen and close my eyes and probably not really miss them, LOL! I enjoy and wear a lot of shades, generally, so I think for me I would look for formulas that are hard to blend and probably limit to just a few deeper red/fuchsia kind of shades (because... — Christine Join Discussion [Author: Christine]

If you had to, what lipstick would you let go of first?

Though I don’t keep most of them (especially from non-core brands, e.g. MAC or NARS), any and all liquid lipsticks that dry down and are drying can pretty much take a hike! In an alternate universe, I’d keep maybe two or three for that ultra-rare occasion where I’d sacrifice comfort for... — Christine Join Discussion [Author: Christine]

How do your expectations change as price goes up?

I have less room to forgive–on a personal level, not with respect to reviews–weaknesses in a product. The higher the cost, the less a brand can justify missing; it has to do what it says it’s supposed to and do it well with less and less room for error! — Christine Join Discussion [Author: Christine]

What beauty brand do you wish more people would try?

For more “mainstream,” though still more niche, Surratt Beauty. For indie, Fyrinnae and Sydney Grace. — Christine Join Discussion [Author: Christine]

What do you like about shimmery bronzer? What don’t you like?

Tell us what you love and hate about... Shimmery Bronzer I often wear bronzer as a subtle blush – a bit of defining and color without wearing an actual blush shade – so I tend to like some shimmer. I also love highlighter, so I can roll with a matte bronzer as much as a shimmery one… though I find shimmery powders are easier to blend out (generally)! — Christine Join Discussion [Author: Christine]

What kind of product samples do you like getting with a purchase?

What does your 15-minute look entail?

Brows, mascara, eyeliner, foundation, blush, highlighter, lipstick, and gloss… and if I’m really speedy, then a quick 3-4 eyeshadow look, probably something neutral and using ND Biba or Tom Ford Nude Dip. — Christine Join Discussion [Author: Christine]

What makes an eyeshadow palette appealing to you?

I love seeing a cohesive color story where I can see several different look ideas pop out at me. I also tend to gravitate toward smoother, more intense shimmers or deeper tones, so rich, jewel-tones always draw me in. — Christine Join Discussion [Author: Christine]

What do you like about highlighter/blush duos? What don’t you like?

Tell us what you love and hate about... Highlighter/Blush Duos I love them! I love duos because they’re easier to make work together, and if a brand has two or three duos, they can cater more specifically by depth or undertone so you don’t end up with a palette of six shades and only love half of them. The only time I’m not keen is when they’re in the same pan! — Christine Join Discussion [Author: Christine]

What convinces you to try out a new brand?

When I see readers mention it routinely as part of products they’re loving, using, favorite products, etc. and if the brand has a (mostly) clean/drama-free background or else has a good period of “good” behavior (some growing pains are to be expected for indie brands). — Christine Join Discussion [Author: Christine]

How do you feel about purchasing backups?

I try hard to resist the need to purchase backups of color cosmetics, in general, unless it’s something like a brow product that I know I tend to stick to and will actually use up. For skincare/haircare, if it’s become a staple, then I’ll have one or two on hand (depending on how quickly I go... — Christine Join Discussion [Author: Christine]

What will make you lose trust in a beauty reviewer/influencer?

NO NAMES! This not a license to let loose on any particular individual! When sponsored content doesn’t align with what they normally do; a common one is a sponsored video for drugstore brands but all of their organic content is very high-end/luxury. The more I hear marketing jargon in a... — Christine Join Discussion [Author: Christine]

What was the last product that really let you down?

Charlotte Tilbury Airbrush Bronzer… did not like at all–so dry and LOOKED extremely dry on my skin. I enjoy the original finishing powder, so I was really surprised to have such trouble with the bronzer. — Christine Join Discussion [Author: Christine]

What brand/retailer has the best online shopping experience?

I don’t use a lot of features while shopping, so my “best” is more with respect to customer service, shipping speed, and how well everything is packaged. Chanel wins for me; they have fantastic presentation (in a sturdy, cardboard box that I always keep and use for organization), safely... — Christine Join Discussion [Author: Christine]
