I apologize for lack of posts these days. It's now getting a bit ridiculous at my work. Yesterday I came home and all I wanted to do was cry from frustration and stress. Luckily a couple of friends came over and after chatting and all I felt slightly better. I woke up with a headache again though :(

For this edition of Thursday Poll, I wanted to ask you about your preference when it comes to loose vs pressed eyeshadows. When I first got into makeup (perhaps 9-10 years ago), I was all about pressed eyeshadows as I had no idea how to deal with pigments or loose eyeshadows. Nowadays, I have become pretty comfortable with my pigments and I would say I use them as much as my pressed colours if not more. I think I actually even prefer pigments as they are more versatile and also more vibrant (in most cases). My fave trick with all brands pigments is first to use them over a sticky base. Then I usually apply the pigment damp at first and layer a dry coat of the same pigment on top.

Over to you, which of the two do you prefer? Or do you use both simultaneously like me?

    Since I've pressed most of my pigments, they've definitely been used more regularly. I reach for my palettes so often, it just made sense for me to put them in there.. no point in having all those pigments if they were hardly being used.
