L’oreal’s latest HIP High Intensity Pigments Colour Presso is the perfect example of a decent product failing because of disastrous packaging.

The gloss duo combines two yummy colors in squeezable tube so they can be worn alone or mixed together for customizable combinations. While the idea is really clever, the delivery itself is far from user-friendly. It took me 5 minutes to figure out how to open the cap and I even had difficulty getting the glosses out from the tubes, let alone controlling the amount of product I want to use!

This week, we will look at a question from Kei about makeup bases and primers.

“Hi Phyllis! I want to ask about primers/makeup bases. How important is it to use one and do you have any recommendations? Do most makeup bases have SPF? And what different kinds are there? I have seen makeup bases in pink, green, white etc. How do you know which one is right for you?”
