Q. Best Matte Black Eyeliner?
I am in such a fuss right now! I have been unable to find a deep un metallic  black liner! I have tried KVD Tattoo Liner (reflectes isn't matte) , MUG Immortal (transferred in my crease!), Lime Crime Quill liner (same issue as KVD), ABH creme color (tugged on my eyes too much) and nothing is dark enough!   I'm at a loss here since in photos my normal liner looks like a dark grey from the highlights natural lighting.   Also, it'd be nice to have color recommendation other than black to accent my eyes since I'm working with two shades here. They're blue however the yellowish green in my eyes is a decent amount, and often certain bronzes draw my eyes in, rather out.    Helppp!

colored liner
Hi! I would like to start using a fat colored eyeliner. I typically wear a reasonably bare face (just some Smashbox cc and maybe blush) and want to add a touch of edge to my look. What colors would you recommend for someone with blue's eyes and dark blond hair? When I do use shadow, it is usually MAC embark (a very dark brown), so I'd like to try something outside of the brown realm. Thanks!

Nothing will keep my eyelashes curled or create thick lashes!
I'm just about to throw in the towel and go back to eyelash extensions! For the past few months, my lashes have just been horrible. They won't stay curled, even right after curling them. I've used the blow dryer trick on my curler and I even use waterproof mascara. I wipe the excess of the wand and still, my eyelashes come out flat, thin and clumpy. No mascara I have tried has given my pretty looking lashes.   The ones I've tried are: - Benefit They're Real! - Maybelle Lash Sensational - Benefit Bad Gal - Maybelline Full 'N Soft (this one is the best so far, my my lashes still go flat and look thin) - Covergirl Lash Blast - Maybelline Colossal   Those are just the ones I've tried in the past few months. Any help would be appreciated. I'm going crazy looking at my eyelashes!

Concealer
Hi,  I was hoping to get some options for eye concealers that I can multi-use for the eye lids and under eye area. I am fair to light skin so I was hoping for something that was easily blendable .   I was also hoping for something that doesn't crease easily or at all. So I hope that I can get some suggestions for this.   Thanks in advanced.

Went on a makeup-buying spree... now what??
So, I somehow went from a three-drugstore-products-every-day kind of girl to a 3000-point Rouge in the space of about a month. The most embarrassing part is that eyeshadow palettes account for a huge chunk of that spending, but I have next to no clue what to do with them. I guess some part of me felt like I was buying the knowledge along with the colors! Anyone want to help a newbie out? I have the following:   Urban Decay Naked 2 and 3 Too Faced Neutral Eye Shadow Collection Buxom custom palette in various neutrals MUFE Artist Shadow in Taupe Platinum and Golden Beige Bare Minerals Ready 8.0 Power Neutrals Obviously I love my neutrals (not super adventurous just yet, plus my workplace prefers a more conservative look), but I don't even know what you'd call my eye color, much less how to make it pop. I also have hooded lids that I don't have a clue how to work with.   I'll take all the help I can get -- tips, links to tutorials, anything and everything!

I very much despise my hooded eyes because they always make it so hard to put make up on and make it look good! Please leave tips, tricks, and even tutorials on how to pull off makeup for hooded eyes! BTW, I recently bought the Naked 2 palette if you want to include specific shades that I can use. I would love something that is wearable for school because it is my birthday on Friday.   Thanks! x

Tightline Liners
Hi! So I've been using the Laura Mercier tightline shadow for a while now and I like it for the most part, however it is time consuming to buildup and I don't really like that I need to use a brush to get the desired effect, especially because this is for my everyday simple tighten/minimal liner look. Do you have any recommendations for a good liner that is safe and effective for mainly might tight line that is also long wearing?

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!

The Kat Von D chrysalis palette whereabouts?
Does anybody know what's going on with the Kat von D chrysalis palette? I noticed it went in the sale and it's almost constantly sold out but now it seems to have disappeared entirely? I still have it in my basket because i wanted to wait until i got paid to do a mass order of stuff but it's not even listed anymore!   Please tell me it's not going to be discontinued, i know monarch is the more popular palette but i thought both butterfly palettes were doing really well? Does anyone know if it's gone for good or more likely just going to come back to sephora at full price again?

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.

Cream Eye Shadow Comparison
The more I use cream eye shadows (either pot or stick) the more I just want to convert all of my eye shadows over. I'm sure this won't happen, but I've been seeing comments about Burberry's new cream shadows and how they're "different" and it's made me wonder how the different brands compare?    Who's tried a bunch that can offer any insight or compare any of them to one another? Which you like, which you don't like, what stays, what blends well, what's your preferred application method?

Subtle eye highlighter?
I generally like a very clean natural look for everyday (I've got two little boys and not a lot of time!).  As I've gotten older I have really worked hard to get beautiful skin and let my natural face shine.  That being said, I would like to look natural, but a little better. I usually wear Dr. Jart+ BB cream in Radiance, the Josie Maran coconut gelee cheek stain in pink  escape and a couple coats of Shu Uemura mascara.  I like the way that the BB cream has just a hint of shimmer when I hit the right light.  I'd like something a bit subtle on my eyes as well (no glitter, not obnoxious shimmer) just to highlight and brighten them.   I've got fair skin, medium brown hair and brown eyes.  Would prefer something on the warm side.  TIA!

Q. Help! I'm looking for eyeshadow that is not matte or too shimmery. Prefer satin finish. Rop
I'm looking for brands that carry eyeshadow that has more of a satin finish. I'm not looking for matte or too shimmery eyeshadows. MAC has some satin finish but what brands in Sephora have similar?   I would like something to wear across my eyelid to brighten my eyes. I prefer neutral to warm tones. My eyes are green with gold flecks, neutral to warm skin tone, light to medium skin tone, medium to dark brown hair. My eye shape is hooded.   As I become older I'm not a fan of too shimmery eyeshadows for my lids. Any rec's for eyeshadow that has satin finish?   Thanks!

Helping a friend on chemotherapy with her eyebrows-suggestions please
Hi-so I offered to help a friend in chemotherapy fill in her eyebrows. She is starting to lose them. I'm trying to decide what product would be best-a gel like dip brow? Or a pencil? She has a chocolate brown wig that is on the cooler side and in terms of color I thought I would get one shade lighter than the wig and one shade darker and we could play around and see what she likes better. But if anyone has particular product suggestions that would be great! Thanks y'all
