The Lipstick League – week of 2.22.16

Question of the Week: If you had to pick your favorite type of eyeshadow, would it be pressed, loose, cream, liquid, pencil, or…?

EauMG’s Answer: This is a difficult one to answer. For the most part, I love pressed eyeshadows because they’re easy to use and so blendable. I find that the loose ones require too much skill for me in the mornings. However, I’m a huge fan of cream shadows, especially those in sticks in like Kiko Long Lasting Stick Eyeshadow. I like their finish and how easy they are to use.
