Dupe for Stila shadow Bubbly from the In the Light palette?
It is one of my favorite eye shadows of all time. It looks like the palette is being discontinued, and I'd rather find a single eye shadow dupe than buy a whole new palette for the one shade. Any one know of anything?

Anastasia v. Inglot
Hi!   I'm struggling with which shadows to buy with my tax money, I already have inglot shadows and love them they blend very easy. I'm very impressed and I love the freedom system. But, I've heard good things about anastasia shadows as well, just wondering if anyone has an opinion on them, or another alternative.

Red around the lower lashes, help?
So I've noticed when I bother to properly conceal my under-eye bags that the skin right at the root of my lower lashes looks pink and slightly irritated.  It's definitely not a reaction, they're always like that, it's just more obvious without the purple below.  I've tried using a dude eyeliner on my waterline and it helps a little but I don't know how to get at the skin right at the root of my lashes without it getting all over the lashes.  Any advice for how to cover this up?

Cool neutral shadow suggestions for green eyes
I've come to the realization that I tend to buy a lot of the same colors of shadows, largely because I don't like how really vivid, true colors look on me so I tend to gravitate more towards neutrals.  I have a lot of dusty purples and warm browns and light pinks.  For me it feels like the hole in my collection is some cooler toned neutrals.     I already have the Naked 3 palette, the Smashbox Photo Op Trio in Sepia, Nars Ondine,  Clinique / Colour Surge  Eye   Shadow  Trio Come Heather, a Sephora Smokey Eye Palette that doesn't seem to be around anymore, Benefit Peek a Bright, the Boudoir Eyes Palette, and the latest urban decay ammo palate for fun.   I've heard people recommend Naked 2 as being cooler, but it still doesn't seem that cool to me.  Are there any others you'd recommend.  I'm open to single shadows as well as palettes, trios, etc.  Bonus if it's UD given there is a sale right now, though I also really like the Smashbox and Nars formulas on my skin type and am open to other brands.

Best eyeliner for waterline?
Hi! I love the look of eyeliner in my waterline, but I have really watery eyes, so most won't stay. For most of them, they don't even last an hour. I've tried Makeup Forever Aqua eyes in pencil form, which lasted a couple hours but that's been the longest. I've also tried Urban Decay 24/7 eyeliner, but that was a dissapointment. I had a castmember recommend Stila, but I wanted to ask first. Anyone have any recommendations?

Cool toned green eyeliner
So I've gotten a little bit of an obsession started with trying to find the perfect green eyeliner - not just any green, it has to be cool toned, not gold-green, not khaki-green, not grass-green, not even touching something lime green. While pastel greens might technically count as cool toned, they remind me of some pictures I've seen from the 80's too much to be considered for this particular color hunt. Teal is an option as long as it's more green than blue while still being cool toned.   I've tried doing some preliminary research on my own and keep getting results for 1.) brand product pages, 2.) not cool toned greens, 3.) best colors for green eyes,and  4.) You must have entered the search terms incorrectly, you meant you want to find purple plum and copper colored products right? Because that's what we're going to show you regardless!   Also, just my luck, cool toned greens are the ones that have not been specifically addressed/reviewed/swatched/found dupes for on temptalia. So here I am, asking my fellow BTers for their help with finding the very specifically cool toned greens that can still be found (no LE shades from 2011!) without resorting to the price gouging mega-retailer sites!

I'm Korean, so my eyelashes are very thin and they point straight down. I curl my them before I apply mascara but they droop down unless the mascara is waterproof. I've been wanting either the Benefit They're Real or the Too Faced Better Than Sex but I realized that there wasn't a waterproof one available. Does anyone know if they hold a curl like waterproof mascara does?

In the market for a new mascara
I have been using UD's Perversion. I loved it for awhile. But it seems like it is not consistent. My lashes seem awesome one day but meh the next. And it has some clumpy days too. Those days seem to be increasing.  I'd like to buy something new. I'm not sure what direction to go in. I'm leaning towards the Diorshow. But even then I'm not sure which one I want.  Any recommendations? Thanks!!

Usually, I can make a palette work for me, but the Smashbox Heatwave Palette is just not doing the trick for me. The colors are pretty, but they go on really light.

Suggestions for waterline eyelinter
I'm currently using the Sephora Contour Eye Pencil in Blonde Ambition for my lower waterline. I like the look of it, however the liner sometimes ends up getting onto my contact lenses.

Does anyone have a beauty tubes mascara that they can recommend?
I used L'Oreal Double Extend Beauty Tubes Mascara for years.  I have tried other tube mascaras like Blinc and Fiberwig.  Both disappointed me.  They clumped and did not give me lashes that were nearly as long as the L'Oreal product...and for more than twice the price!  I suspect the secret is the primer on one end of the L'Oreal product.  I'm not really a person who is willing to buy a separate product, but if the primer is on the other end, I'm going to use it.  Anyway, in November, I noticed that my new tube of L'Oreal did not act like the earlier tubes.  A few weeks ago I bought another tube at another store in a different state...same clumpy results.  They must have changed the formula.     Anyone have a good formula to recommend?  I hate trying to get off waterproof mascara and it seems to take me days after I've stopped using waterproof mascara to actually get it off even if I use makeup remover.  I'm actually someone who hates to lug around a tube of makeup remover, so that's why I love tube mascaras: they're waterproof in the rain and workout, but they come off with a little soaking at night (no extra products to throw into my gym bag).  The cheaper the better because I toss my mascara four times a year!
