Jenny’s Questions:

Which beauty guru would you want to do your makeup?

I think I would want Tati to do my makeup. I find her voice so soothing and she seems like the biggest sweetheart. She is also incredibly talented and has excellent opinions when it comes to makeup. I don’t think there has ever been a point where I didn’t agree with her.

What makes you subscribe to another blogger?

I am regularly browsing through wordpress to find new and exciting blogs to follow. What makes me hit the subscribe button is if I see them reviewing lots of products that I’m interested in, or that I can tell they have a unique and exciting voice. I also love bloggers who help other bloggers, I subscribe to a few blogs that frequently blog about blogging.

What are your favorite items to review?

I would say it is a tie between lipstick and eye shadow. I love swatching lipsticks and eyeshadows and comparing how pigmented they are.

What limited edition holiday thing are you most excited for?

I saw the Sephora x Jem and the Holograms Eyeshadow palette online today and it looked really cool! I’ve never tried a Sephora palette but with that price and the awesome packaging, I think I might give it a go when it comes out! I love trying new products. I can’t wait to see swatches when they are available online!

What is your favorite multitasking product?

Concealer. It is great for concealing under the eyes and imperfections, as well as adding a subtle highlight by brightening up the face.

What is the most expensive makeup item you own?

I think it would be my Urban Decay Vice 3 palette… that’s the most I have ever spent on one single product. It was well worth the investment!

Least expensive?

The Wet N Wild Walking on Eggshells eye shadow trio. It is so impressive for such an inexpensive product!

Sephora, Ulta, or Department Store?

Sephora for sure. We don’t have Ulta in Canada so I only go when I am in the states (the closest one is 4 hours away). I really like the layout on Sephora’s website for online shopping (closest Sephora is 6 hours away and also across the border). I also love shopping there in person when I do happen to be at a Sephora store. It feels so luxurious and modern inside.

Kelsey’s Questions:

1. Favorite Halloween costume?

2013-11-02 15.09.49

I posted about my Pikachu costume when I did the Fall Favourites Tag so instead of talking about that again, I’ll move onto my next favourite which was when my husband and I dressed up as Batman and Robin. At some point over the last few years my husband’s friends started calling him Batman. With that in mind and the fact that my name is Robyn, these costumes seemed extra fitting. We also both love superheroes so these costumes were perfect on many levels.

2. Dunkin Donuts or Starbucks?

We don’t have a Dunkin Donuts near me (I’m not sure if we even have them in Canada?) so I’ll go with Starbucks! 🙂

3. If you could travel anywhere in the world, where would you go?

The next place on my bucket list for travelling is a tie between London, England and Paris, France. London because I’m half English, and Paris because… well, it’s Paris! Actually, my husband went to Paris for two weeks when he went to college for culinary arts, and since then he has talked about going back with me.

4. Favorite movie genre?

I love a good romantic comedy, but I think I love just a plain old comedy more. There is nothing like a movie that keeps you laughing the whole time. It really can change your mood!

5. As a child, do you remember what you wanted to be when you grew up?

I wanted to be a Dolphin Trainer! I was fascinated with dolphins! It looked like such a fun job.

6. Ulta or Sephora?

See answer in the first set of questions 🙂

7. What is one skill you have always wanted to try and learn?

I would really like to improve my makeup application skills. My goal is to actually attend a class and learn how to properly do it.

8. Favorite eyeshadow palette?

I think it is the Urban Decay Naked 2 palette, I use it the most out of any palette I own. The Too Faced Chocolate Bar palette is a close second. It is very pigmented and bendable, as well as smells delicious.

9. Do you prefer a crazy night out? Or a cozy night in? 

Definitely a cozy night in. Nothing beats relaxing in my pjs while marathoning something on Netflix with my husband and dogs!

10. What is one makeup product that you’ve been eyeing lately?

The Urban Decay Vice 4 Palette! It looks stunning and the video that Tati did recently where she swatched and reviewed it just made me want it even more!

My Questions:

  1. Black or brown eyeliner?
  2. Favourite food?
  3. Favourite makeup purchase this year?
  4. Coffee or tea?
  5. Favourite TV show that is no longer on the air?
