Hi Dolls, What are some of your favorite brands for falsh lashes? and Glue? I would prefer ones you can re-use more than once. Because I only wear lashes when I'm going out, I never invested in them before, so bought the disposable Ardel or Revlon and the like that you can get in your local Ulta or Sally's. But the texture and look are just OBVIOUSLY fake in my opinion. Also, any tips on what lashes look best on what eyes?
My name is Bombshell and I continue to be an eyeshadow addict enthusiast !! However, five weeks ago I began a quest to actually start using my mountains and mountains of palettes and shadows. Along with some awesome ladies who have joined in I have committed to using the same palette 5 days in a row and posting the results at the end of five days. Those with single shadows are welcome to join in as well! If you are interested in the original rules & lists posted they can be found in off topic, (take the challenge: palette parade). the gist of it is make a list, plan to show all your shadows love for extended period of time (5days), if you hate it first day move on. I am also planning to add weeks of singles by brand (Stila week, UD week, Nars week). I think instead of posting and editing lists it would be easier to report what we plan to use at the beginning of the week and the report the results at the end. We meet here at the end of the week to discuss what we wore for the week, how it worked for us and most importantly to share pictures and advice! Anyone can join as we all started at different times and have different numbers of palettes, and will finish at different times. I am looking at 38 (?) more weeks if I don't buy one more palette! Xoxo I look forward to more fun parading with all you girls!

I know a few of you lovely ladies were waiting for it to come back in stock. Don't hesitate because I'm sure it will be OOS again in a day or so. i wish I could remember who was looking for this set. It's a great set and you will LOVE it
Hi lovelies! I've been thinking of lashes all day & wanted to see what your faves are! While we don't carry any, I'm currently obsessed with Mink lashes. I love that they can be worn multiple times & look so fluffy <3 Here's my current go-to's
MUFE 156 Genevieve - Special Occasion lashes
MUFE 108 Allison - Major Drama/Nights Out
Sephora Collection in Flutter - Daytime Lash Loves
I love it! I eyebrows aren't very full, and after they were tinted, they look way fuller. And also what's nice is that on the days I don't wear any makeup, my eyebrows look really nice without my having to do anything to them.
I'm looking at new eyeliners and I came across this set. Price is good and a variety of colors. I mostly wear brown liner because black doesn't look good on me. i was also planning on buying the UD smoked palette and ammo palette so I was thinking these liners would go good with them. Has anyone purchased these?
I have recently been reading an article that said wearing blue eyeshadow makes you look like a clown so NEVER wear blue eye shadow. So no blue eye shadow at ALL! Well I highly disagree with this. Blue is a graceful color. If you wear it and put it on right it won't make you look like a clown! I wear blue eyeshadow when its night time.
Spoiler (Highlight to read) Boy oh boy, am I blown away!! Naked 3 is the absolute ULTIMATE in eye shadows! I have never seen such perfect pinky-brown shades, and I have looked far and wide. I have blue eyes, and talk about a color making your eyes pop? There are many, many options here that do the job. As a side note, I got a sample size of the Yves Saint Laurent Vernis A Levres Rebel nudes, and the 106 Rebel Anarchist shade turns out to be the ultimate lip color for me! Who knew? Sephora, I love you! Patty
Hi, I'm looking for an eyeliner recommendation from those more experienced with eyeliner than me. Here are what I am looking for in an eyeliner: Black. The eyeliner recommendation has to be a highly pigmented black. Easy to use. I am pretty new to using eyeliner, so I want an eyeliner made for beginners. Not too expensive. My price range is $25 and under. Thanks in advance for the recommendations.
Hi, I was looking at MAC powder eye shadows today, in my search for the perfect under-brow highlight color to wear with any eye shadow look. (I posted a conversation asking people for eye highlight colors they liked a few days ago.) After I tried several different possible MAC shadow colors (such as Vanilla, Blanc Type, Brule, Orb, etc.), and didn't find anything that looked right, I spoke with the MAC SA and she suggested I try MAC's Pro Longwear Concealer. She said that usually concealer can't or shouldn't be used on the eyelid and under the brow but that this MAC kind could. She pegged my color as NW20 right away and gave me some concealer and a brush to try this out. My upper lid immediately drank this stuff up and I must admit that I liked how the concealer blended right in and covered up some red/purple discoloration. I asked the SA if eye primer would be used first or after the concealer and she said that the concealer replaces the eye primer. She suggested I try some shadows on top of the concealer and compare to using the primer. She said that the benefit of the concealer is that I may find I don't need to use a highlight color to get a "finished look" if I don't want to. (I assume she said this because the concealer hides flaws and smooths out some imperfections.) I looked at my eyes in the bright sunlight when I left the store and I couldn't tell the concealer was there at all, in terms of color, but my eyes looked better without the red/purple areas showing. The SA gave me a sample of the concealer so I could take more home. I just played with using it on one eye and under brow and my primer on the other eye and under brow, and I didn't see much difference in application. I do think that the skin under my brow is a bit dry (which I never realized until lately) so that perhaps the concealer works a little better. Does anyone use this MAC concealer as an eyelid primer? Or as a highlight under the brow (perhaps in a lighter shade than their MAC foundation shade)? The whole concept is a bit intriguing.
I have oily lids (specifically in the inner corners) and am in need of a great primer. I'm currently using Urban Decay Original Primer Potion, but am wondering if either Too Faced Shadow Insurance or NARS Smudgeproof Eye Shadow Base will work better. I would like to know which one you guys prefer and why. Thanks!
Calling all palette addicts! Considering a LOT of us all have the same ones, let's swap some of our best "recipes"! I do with some non BT friends and we have a blast. It's just a great way to get and share ideas or try something you might not have thought of! It's also fun to see how the same thing can look different on someone else. Urban Decay Naked Inner & outer lid: Gunmetal Center lid: Sidecar Crease: Buck Browline/Inner eye: Sin Lower lash line: Gunmetal Urban Decay Naked 2 Inner lid: Verve Outer lid: Pistol Crease: Busted Browline/Inner eye: Booty Call Urban Decay Naked 3 Center lid: Trick Inner and outer lid: Factory Crease: Liar Browline/Inner eye: Strange Too Faced Chocolate Bar Inner lid: Creme Brulee Outer Lid: Cordial Cherry Crease: Black Forest Truffle Browline/Inner eye: Champagne Truffle
I feel eye shadow is the most universal item. So many colors, brand, prices. But, even if eye shadow is not your favorite you crave more. Last year I bought stila in the lights, Bh cosmetics's party girl. Now I want Too Face Chocolate Bar, The Divergent Multi collection, Naked Basics, Naked 3. Anyone else have a hard time finding a reason for more.
Any of you tried one, or both of these pretties? I am trying to decide between the two, as they look pretty similar in pictures. I love the Chanel but I get points and dollars towards Rouge requalification if I choose the Dior, so....decisions, decisions!
I mentioned the other day in the palette parade thread that it would be cool if someone started a thread with a picture of a cool eye look and we all tried our hands at it. So CalamityJane (the bully) told me to start it. My immediate thought was "But I wanted someone else to do it!!" Then I decided I was being a whiny little b*tch and should get to it. So without further ado, here's the first Eyeshadow Inspiration! I had been wanting to try a green/bronze eye look for awhile and thought this one looked fun. Here is my not-very-good attempt at it: As always, lighting was a bit of an issue (why won't my blush ever show up?!?), but even though the colors aren't captured perfectly you can still kind of see them. Anyone else want to try? Feel free to substitute colors and change it up (maybe using whatever your palette-of-the-week is?). I love seeing what people here come up with!
This is a small Indie cosmetics company, and I'm currently lusting after their Arcane Magic Eye Shadows. They're these loose eyeshadows that are very sparkly and get this; THEY CHANGE COLOR. Depending on the angle and lighting, these shadows will change in color. Now in theory, that means they'll change to lighter colors when light is hitting them, therefore they will darken by themselves in the creases. This would mean that the days of using a billion colors and shades to do eyeshadow are gone because the shadow would adjust its shade and color to match your contours. Here's the link: http://www.fyrinnae.com/index.php?_a=viewCat&catId =14 Apparently their fairy epoxy primer/glue is very good too. A lot of bloggers rave about it.
I was interested in buying Duo false eyelash glue, until I noticed latex was the second ingredient. I'm allergic to latex and I feel scared of putting something with it on the sensitive eye area. Do any of you beauties know any falsies or falsie glue without latex?
I think I saw a couple of people here on BT looking for the Anastasia Lavish Palette but couldnt because it was sold out everywhere. I follow ABH on Instagram and she mentioned she will be restocking this palette in limited quantities sometime soon. So if you want it, get on instagram and follow her so you can get it as soon as its re-released before it sells out again!
