How To Tell If Fake/Counterfeit?
Hi, I hope it is ok to post this here but I have a question about how to spot if something is fake.  I am asking because I really want a Guerlain Meteorites shade that was from 2 years ago and one eyeshadow palette I wanted sold out before I could get them and I have seen some on ebay and amazon and I was just wondering if I take a chance what should I look for?  (I know buyer beware...but it is for myself and I am wanting the palette and I ran out of my meteorites in the shade I loved for years so if it turns out to be fake then it was my bad luck but I am hoping there are some that are legit....I have googled and looked for any info on signs to look for on the palette but I have not found I see that you can get copies from Alibaba already on the palette and I was floored to see how many fake meteorites there were so I am just wanting to make sure they are legit if I can)   1.  Guerlain it true that they are all smooth on the inside of the top of the container? 2.  Lorac Mega Pro Palette - Signs to look for?  QR codes not working?  Alignment off?  Are there fakes that are really close to original?

That seller is located in Singapore, the MECCA of the Asian-made fakes where they copy packaging and codes to perfection.  see post

SOS - My Watery-Eye dilemma!!
So, I've never used this before but I was wondering if anyone can relate or has advice! Since the dawn of time (me experimenting with make up at age 11) I have struggled with finding an eyeliner or mascara that is long lasting.  My eyes are watery I guess and spend most of my day wiping of make up from underneath my eyes. I've tried primers, pencil liners, liquid liners, gel liners, felt-tip pen liners. Water proof mascara, high end mascara, regular mascara. I have yet to find a product that stays on my eyes.  Today I ordered the stila Stay All Day Waterproof Liquid Liner, Better Than Sex Waterproof Mascara and an Urban Decay Primer potion.  I'm hoping these products will work well!  Does anyone have any staple products they use that are long lasting?

How do I get my eye shadow to stop creasing?

I would add this: gently blot throughout the day with oil absorbing wipes.  Target makes a cheap version that stands to the more expensive ones. see post

Best black gel liner
Currently I am using the Tarte clay paint liner from a set available during the holidays last year. I like it for application but I wish it was a true dark black. I have never been very adept at pen liners and I have most experience using pot gel liners. Can you suggest a very black liner?

Searching for a new makeup palette
I realized that the last time I purchased any new eye palettes was almost two years ago and my oldest one being 3 years old (TF original Chocolate Bar palette). That explains why I am a little bored with what i have. My current collection is the TF chocolate bar, semi sweet and born bon palettes as well as the TF sugar pop palette and the Tarte Aqualillies (my absolute favorite palette) palette. I am incredibly fair (I wear TF Born This Way in Snow) with blue eyes and light brown hair. I don't know if it is the age of my palettes but the TF chocolate bar palettes seem to be harder to blend than they used to, unless that is my imagination. I am uninspired by a lot of the palettes out right now but the two I am eyeing are the TF sweet peach and the Tarte tartlette in bloom. I am looking for something that will create a nice daytime look but can go a little darker for nighttime if needed. It seems lately that all my looks turn out darker, but that could just be me getting carried away trying to use a lot of shades. I am curious to try more Tarte eye products as I love the Aqualillies palette and it is my only experience with Tarte eye products. Does anyone know if they have a new eye palettes coming out soon? What do you think of the two palettes I am eyeing?Are they good options or should I stear clear? I forgot to mention, I have cool undertones if that helps. Thanks!

Miss A
Has anyone shopped online Miss A? I saw a Yahoo article on it today.  Everything is $1. This includes makeup, scarves, jewelry, masks, supplies, etc. I'm sure at $1 it's probably not the greatest quality, but they have a huge selection. Has anyone tried it?

Eyelash Growth Serum
I have very short eyelashes that even with mascara don't seem to look any better. False eyelashes bug my eyelashes towards the inner parts. I am considering an eyelash growth serum. I have a friend who uses the Rodan+Fields Lash boost but am hesitant against those types of companies. Espcially when they make you pay a starter fee to buy their products at a discount.  Anyone have any luck with the RevitaLash Advanced or the Rodan+Fields? Or even something else? I don't want to have to take pills though.  Thanks!

Comparing to other gel eyeliners I've tried Marc Jacobs #highliner glides on perfectly, with great pigmentation and it blends so well that I couldn't believe.

Dried pencil -> candle EVERY time or just once?
I'm addicted to Stila Smudge Stick but the caps are terrible, constantly fall off or crack, leading to dried up twist pencils and wasted $.   I read I can re-soften with a little heat, but is the effect permanent or do I need to apply heat every time? Threw all my dried ones away and I'm trying to decide whether to re-invest in new pencils with bad caps.   Also, the candle trick is described for wooden pencils but what about twist-up pencils from a plastic tube like Stila?   Thanks!

Anastasia Modern Renaissance Help
 Hi! So I finally purchased a modern renaissance palette after seeing the 4.8 star reviews and the very pretty swatches!   However..... I can't seem to get a nice look on me without looking like I bruised my eye!  I usually use either the UD naked 3 palette or TooFaced Peach Palette.. I've also tried youtubing for looks but none of them see workable.     If you have any tips on what colors to put wherever on the eye, please let me know! I don't want to have to return the palette! The colors are soooo pretty!  Preferably I'd like less intense looks, more of a subtle look   (I have fair color skin, dark brown eyes, asian so no crease but big eyes, )   Thanks!

Tarte Aqualillies shadow dupes?
Does anyone remember this palette? It is my favorite palette of all time and has been my white whale (Moby D!ck) since it was discontinued (darn LE)! This palette was perfection, but 3 shadows stole my heart, namely hammock (coffee brown that blends like a dream), bikini (duo chrome peachy tan is the best way I can describe it but doesn't do it justice and my absolute favorite shade in this palette) and sun deck (a light tan). This palette was an impulse purchase in 2013 and since it is no longer available I ration my usage of it. I have hoped Tarte would release these colors again under a different name in another palette but haven't found that to be the case. Can anyone suggest dupes of these shadows (especially hammock and bikini) by any brand in singles or a palette?
