What type of mascara wand would I need in order to get a similar affect as the eyelashes at the following link #6 without using false lashes? Could you also give me some mascara examples?  http://www.stylecraze.com/articles/tips-and-tricks -to-make-small-eyes-appear-bigger/

Any alternatives to Too Faced (pillow talk) eye shadow?
I fell in love with the Too Faced (pillow talk) eye shadow. It is in their NAKED EYE PALETTE and it's nearly gone! I guess I used it the most.   I have been trying to find a duplicate or something similar to this and cannot find it. Anyone have any suggestions? It is a matte finish. Any suggestions are welcomed!

Black liner smudges under my eyes
Everyday a couple hours after I do my makeup, I have these weird black smudges under my eyes (around lower lashline) lately. I have no idea how to get rid of those smudges. I always use one one eyeliner pencil and it was never happended before. Can you please give me a suggestion?

Q. Looking for a LIFEPROOF (smudgeproof, *actually* waterproof, etc) eyeliner--any recommendations?
I'm going on vacation to a tropical place renowned for beaches, but notorious for rain. I'm also going with my boyfriend, who always manages to smudge off my eyeliner one way or another. In other words, my makeup doesn't stand a chance.    Has anyone tried a genuinely smudge-proof, waterproof liner that they could recommend? My current go-to is Tarte's clay liner, but I hear they reformulated it--and even then, the old formula could never withstand even light beach time anyway.   I'd prefer some kind of pot liner, but I'd be totally fine with a liquid too--I just can't really do pencil liners because I'm not skilled enough to create crisp lines with them. Thanks!

My thoughts on the new Diorshow formula
As some of you may know, a new Diorshow formula will be available soon; it will be sold to VIB and VIB Rouge before it is available to everyone.   http://www.sephora.com/diorshow-mascara-P396240?sk uId=1689744   I was lucky enough to be gifted a tube of this new mascara, courtesy of Dior partnering with Sephora.  I'm sure I was chosen for this particular gift due to my numerous posts declaring this product as my HG mascara.  I was asked to post on BT and write a review after trying it; so, I am here to share my thoughts with you all.   Spoiler (Highlight to read) Here is the new box.  It arrived rather smashed up but the product itself was perfectly fine.   Spoiler (Highlight to read)   The top picture shows a comparison between wearing Diorshow's new formula (over Diorshow primer) on the left and my natural eyelashes without any product on the right.  The bottom picture shows Diorshow primer and the Diorshow new formula mascara on both lashes.     My thoughts:  As a big fan of the prior formula, I was very interested to see what changes Dior made.  In my opinion, this new formula mascara seems to be a little creamier and shinier than the old formula. It was very easy to apply and it did not clump at all.  I didn't even need to run an eyelash comb through it, which is always a plus.  I found it to be still as dramatic as ever and the staying power also continues to be excellent. Again, Diorshow is a winner and I am happy to say it will remain my HG mascara.

Ciate Skinny Shadow Stick
Has anyone purchased or tried any of the Ciate Skinny Shadow Sticks?     I was really surprised to see a Ciate section in the Powell Street store since it reopened. I went looking for their blush but noticed these as well. They have a spongy tip that seems like it could apply almost like a spongy version of a Sharpie. The shade range reminded me of the GA Eye Tints.    If you like products like the LM Caviar Sticks, these might be interesting to you. I might have bought one but it seemed like out of the 10 or so shades, about 6 of them had wandered off.

What brand makes the best colorful pencil eyeliners?
I've been on the hunt for colorful  pencil  eyeliners. Specifically colors that are bright, light blue, teals, and turquoises. If they are shimmery eyeliners than those would be even better. I know there are a lot of liquid liners in these colors, but I prefer pencil liners, so what brands would you reccomend?

Urban Decay has the best color selection, but Marc Jacobs has a better formula IMO. He's got some new shades that are really gorgeous. see post
Eyeshadow Transfers to Upper Lid- Even With Primer!
I have hooded eyelids, so any time I put any shadow on my lid it transfers as soon as I blink. By the end of the say my eye shadow looks like one big mess!!! which doesnt help my oily lids one bit. I feel like i have used every primer ever, which does help with the oiliness but not the transfering.     Are they are any tip, tricks, or products that help anyone else?

Under-eye Concealer Tips/Recs?
I've currently been using Nars Concealer but I've noticed covers my dark circles somewhat (it comes off a bit translucent and I have to build up on the product) but tends to settle into creases or just fade off within an hour or two of wearing.

My UD Electric Palette Scares me
First me say that the colors are sooooo beautiful and bright. But it's one of those palettes that can easily make you look like you work kids' parties... know whadamean?   I'm wearing it today at work, and I ended up using the purples and blues and blending them out really well. But I'm curious what has worked for you when you have really bright eyeshadow colors you want to use.   I've looked at the YouTube videos for this palette, and they are wearing way too much eyeshadow for my taste. Any tips? I'd really love to be able to jazz up a look but still keep it non-kids party.   Thanks, lovelies!

Share Space for DIY Buxom Palettes
UPDATE: I had an allergic reaction when I applied this product to my eye area.  Luckily, I tested it on just one of my eyelids so only one is irratated and burning instead of both. I will be the first to admit that I do have sensitive skin but eye makeup has never aggravated me before, only lipsticks and skincare items.  I am shocked right now, very uncomfortable, and very unhappy.   I am returning this item.  I hope the rest of you do not have the skin reaction that I did!     Original post: As some of you may already be aware, Buxom has an awesome new product that allows you to easily create your own palette with any six colors as of your choosing.    I thought we could all share our custom palettes & swatches!     Swatches in the spoiler! Spoiler (Highlight to read) I found these to be more on the sheer side.  I used several brush stokes of each eye shadow to build up the color in my swatches.

Best brown mascara?
Ive tried hundreds of mascara and I usually go for ink blacker than black. Sinful lash was discontinued *sadface* but then I luckily found love in better than sex mascara. However I need a brown for days that I want a softer look. I have to wear mascara no matter what as I'm naturally a red head and my lashes are invisible without it.

Q. purple eyeliner allergy

Colourpop eye shadows?I
It seems like my YT home page has been inundated with reviews of these $5 Colourpop Super Shock cream eye shadows. They actually look quite lovely, but when I see everyone and their mother doing a review for something they were sent on YT, I tend to take those reviews with a heaping grain of salt. Has anyone actually tried these? The price is appealing at least.

New UD naked smoky vs Buxom custom eyeshadow bar dilemma
So being a die hard UD junkie I instantly wanted the new naked smokey pallette and then I read temptalia's review. So now I'm jonesing for a new eye pallette and don't know if I should maybe try out the new Buxom eye shadow bar. My local Sephora claims they have no idea when they will get in the UD to swatch and by then it may sell out and be a while before it gets back in stock. I know that the Buxom will be cheaper by $14 or so, but I've not seen any reviews of the Buxom - any opinions and/or if you're in a similar frame of mind your input would be appreciated!
