Is Too Faced, Better Than Sex, a good mascara. I hear it flakes a lot. Is this true?

Hi @R5UBCool,   I really enjoy this mascara and I have short curly lashes. It gives me very dramatic look and the formula is very black, which I love. If you apply t... see post
MILK MAKEUP tattoo stamp
Hey, so i was sooooo excited that the milk tattoo stamp finally arrived an hour ago. I stamped two black cute little stars on my wrists.  It claims to be waterproof.  I washed my hands with water only while some water splashed onto the tattoo..  It started smearing and became purple. Also, I just tried to use makeup remover (that gets out even my most waterproof mascara, but there are still reminants of purple ink (like I got a bruise).   Does yours do that?  Did I get a defective product?

Mix and match skin
Before I put on any makeup of any kind I have to exfoliate or the foundation seeps into the "crevasse" of my skin.  Even when I do exfoliate I still can't wear any makeup sometimes.  Please help me!

Best Shampoo for swimmers
Hi!  As a triathlon coach and athlete I expose my hair and skin daily to sweat, sun and chlorine. I use Bumble and Bumble primer oil daily which helps with hydration. I’m looking for advice on what shampoo would work well without being too drying. I do not color my hair or use heat.

Dupe for discontinued Sephora Brand Contour Matte Gel Eyeliner?
I just found out that the "Espresso Your Love" has been discontinued.  I am not interested in the "Caffeine Buzz" shade which is a red brown.  What is a good dupe for the Espresso Your Love?  I'm looking for something that wears all day on my upper lid, and is a dark brown.

Hi greeneyedgirl107,   You might really like the UD 24/7 liner in Demolition. It's a matte dark brown that's not a red undertone. I hope that helps! see post
Inability to see reviews on anything other than a smartphone.
I still shop on my laptop. Unable to look at reviews that disappear seconds after the page loads. Reviews are crucial. Please fix this issue, so that I, and other shoppers, will be more confident in my purchases and less likely to run to a store to return something we can avoid with helpful reviews.    Best, TMMS

Need mineral make up change
I have been using Bare Minerals for some time and I like it but am feeling like I need an update and maybe a little more coverage.  I would prefer not to wear a liquid make up because I tend to sweat it off in the warmer temperatures. I don't want to waste my time to basically see all the makeup wiped away within a few minutes of leaving my house.   I want to look natural but still have some coverage. Does anyone have any suggestions?

How do you prevent mascara from melting and ending up on the outside crease/under my eyes?
I am Moving to a humid location and it already happens in the dry environment I live in now. No matter what kind of mascara I buy (my favorite right now is Marc Jacobs) after a couple hours it ALWAYS ends up under my eyes and on the outside crease. How do you prevent this? It happens with every single mascara I've ever tried.

Is Benefit Cheek Parade good for medium skin tone?
I have a medium skin tone and I'm thinking of purchasing the new Benefit Cheek Parade because I don't have any blush/highlight palette yet. I have medium to dark skin though, so I'm worried that Hoola won't be useful to me as a bronzer, or the Dandelion just plain won't show. Can I use the Rockateur as a highlight? Is this palette worth it or will I just end up with colors I can't use?   Would you recommend the colors here for people with medium to dark skintone? (I'm NC35, Estee Lauder Tawny) All the videos show girls with fair caucasian skin so I'm worried that even if it looks good on them, it won't on me. 😅   Spoiler (Highlight to read) Spoiler (Highlight to read) Spoiler (Highlight to read)       If you wouldn't recommend this, can you recommend me a good blush/highlight/contour palette under $75? I have combination skin that can get a bit oily so maybe powder would be a better choice.

Kat Von D lock it foundation - oily skin, moisturizer, and primer?
Here are my questions 1. is this sweat proof and will it last all day? I have oily skin so thats why im asking.. I will set with powder but I am still asking. I plan to use in the summer 2. what kind of a moisturizer should I get if I tend to use this foundation... would I use a more mattfying moisturizer (that is for oily skin) or should I get a hydrating moistruzier (that is for all skin types) 3. This sorta goes with the moisturizer question ..but what kind of primer.. would i get a mattfying one or a hydrating one? 4. will this foundation work if I have dry patches?

What are your favorite synthetic brushes?
I'm replacing my older natural hair brushes with synthetics (mostly for ethical reasons). I'm having an extremely hard time finding good quality synthetics, along with the right shapes of brushes that I prefer. I've recently bought two 242 brushes from MUFE, and although I like their shape, they're a little scratchy. I know real techniques are synthetics, but I find their selection of shapes, and variety very limiting (especially for eyes). I'm thinking about trying out Luxie brushes, and Sigma brushes. I've never purchased from either before. If you have any experiences with these companies I'd love to hear it! I'd also love to hear other suggestions if you have any. It's extremely hard shopping for these types of products as it seems everyone is paid for their good reviews. It's really hard to trust anyone.

Damaged hair
Hello, I am in desperate need of some suggestions. My hair is naturally very dark, and past my shoulders. I get bored with it (like every girl does) and switch it up. I've had highlights, balayage, my hair bleached. You name it, I have done it. I recently got a wave perm.( I thought it was going to be a good idea for summer so I can just get up and go) It absolutely fried my hair. I am currently using Redken for my shampoo and conditioner. After the perm my hair needed some TLC so I purchased Mudslide by Drybar and it has helped some. Some parts of my hair are frizzy from the damage, and it just doesn't feel healthy anymore. The curls  from the perm aren't even there anymore, so I end up straightening or curing it everyday. I need a good everyday shampoo and conditioner to bring my dry damaged hair back to life.

Urban Decay All Nighter vs De-Slick Setting Spray
I've never purchased a setting spray before but I want to get one this weekend before my bachelorette party! Do you prefer All Nighter or the De-Slick setting spray and what are some of the major differences between the two? My skin is normal/combo. I usually get oily in my T-zone and my chin, so I was considering the De-Slick spray, but I've heard such good things about All Nighter so I'm having difficulty choosing. Any advice would be appreciated!

Clarisonic foundation brush head
I don't think I seen a thread on this but has anyone tried this brush head? I saw a couple of you tubers using it and got curious. First off, as soon as I saw the new foundation brush head I thought I looked just like the satin luxe precision brush head.

Clogged Pores and Stress Acne
Hi! I actually do not have much experience with skin care routines and I would really appreciate some advice. There are so are so many suggestions and routines online that I never know quite what to do. Normally I have always just washed my face before bed to take off my makeup from the day and my skin has been clear. But recently I have started to get lots of clogged pores on my chin and forehead along with blackheads all over my nose and acne in my T-Zone as well as along my jaw line. I really want to get this all cleared up and would appreciate any advice on products and routines!

Looking for a hair product for hair worn up.
I have fine hair that I'm required to wear up for my job.  It's still semi-wet when I put it up because it takes forever to dry and I'm not going to blow dry it everyday just to put it up into a bun.  Yes, I try to make it loose but it can't be messy.  I'm also outdoors a lot so my hair sees the sun, wind, rain, etc.   I'm looking for a product that will protect my hair from the elements and the constant up do.     I'll admit, due to how fine it is, I even wear it up on my days off and especially to the gym.
