Primer Potion Sin vs. Minor Sin
Does anyone have swatchs of the original Urban Decay primer potion Sin vs. the new Minor Sin?  Or has anybody used both and have an opinion on the differences?

Honestly, I love Sin, so I'm trying to figure out if I'll be disappointed in Minor Sin. see post

For the Naked 2 Experts!!
I'm been searching long and far for a substitution for the one shade I have run out of in my naked 2 palette,  Booty Call (shimmering cork).  Of course, UD does not sell it separately.  Has anyone found a substitution for this eyeshadow? Thanks!!

NYC sparkle dust in Opal is really similar. It has the same white pinkish tone that Bootycall has, and the shimmer as well. Plus it's around $2. see post
Best liquid liner anyone?
Sooooo I've been looking for a liquid eye liner, and I'm new to liners and have never worn it before. (my eye makeup is usually mascara and eye shadow) I am only interested in liquid liners as I feel like they glide on more smoothly without all the tugging and pulling on the eye lid. I was interested in the Kat Van D tattoo liner, or one from Stila that is a water proof liquid liner. ( Cant remember the exact name) I would prefer it to be in an under $20 or so range, and would like recommendations by this Tuesday(the 5th of May) as its my birthday and I will be heading to Sephora then. I really am looking for a long lasting all day black smudge proof, (water proof, etc) liquid liner. ~~ Thanks so much for any suggestions or opinions on letting me know which is personally your favorite. <3

does anyone have any recommendations for a good under eye cream?
I'm looking for a good eye cream one for the morning for under my make-up and one for night time. I'm 26 years old and have fine lines under my eyes which causes my under eye concealer to settle and crease in my fine lines. I would like to get some recommendations for both a morning eye cream and a night eye cream and your thoughts and how it worked for you. It can also be drugstore eye creams just as long as it's good and effective. I can't afford something real expensive.  I'm currently using a neutrogena eye cream but I don't see drastic results. Thanks

Eyeliner finished after a few uses? Sephora Contour Eye Pencil 12hr Wear Waterproof.
I bought the Sephora Contour Eye Pencil 12hr Wear Waterproof.  After using it up to the point where one needs to twist the end to get more product... I realized my pencil does not give you more product with twisting.  Is this a defective pencil or is this how it is designed?  I have to think it's defective... there's no way that I would be charged $10 fo so little eyeliner... Does anyone else have this problem?  Is there a way to get the eyeliner out?   Thanks.

Lash Extensions
I was wondering if anyone here on BT get lash extensions? I'm thinking of getting them but the beauty salon i'm looking at seems pretty expensive, around $250 for the first set (mink) than touch ups every 6-8 weeks are $50-100. What is mink anyways? The cheaper one that's 75 lashes per eye for $170 the first time.   I've seen people with extensions and they look amazing! But, I'm a little worried that I can't wear liner anymore since makeup remover might weaken the adhesive. Also, the price is a little hard to swallow. Ladies, help me make a decision! Should I go get them done?

White shadow base?
Hi everyone,    I am looking for a white eyeshadow base to make the true colors of my eyeshadow pop a bit more. Right now I have been all about the matte colors in my Tartelette palette, but I find I need to use a packing brush to use quite a bit of color to make the colors vibrant, and I have a medium beige skintone. I love how it looks, but I wonder if I use a white base will it be better. Right now I just use UD original primer potion. I was considering the NYX white eyeshadow base or using the NYX jumbo white pencil. Anyone have suggestions?

Who else is a fan of Marc Jacobs highliners? They just released 10 new colors. I'm really excited for In the Buff, which Sephora seems to be sold out of already.

Tips for MJ Twinkle Pops?
Hi everyone, I recently bought the Marc Jacobs Twinkle Pop in the shade Leila. I LOVE the color so so much, which is why I am hesitant about returning the product even though I've had some difficulty using it. Even if I do a few thin layers to build up color, it looks very patchy on the lids. The color is not smooth-it looks like a layer of sparkles with a light tint(even less than an hour after application) Does anyone have any tips to better use this product? It would be much appreciated! Thank you!

Help me find a mascara!
So I feel like i've tried almost every mascara out there, including those primers before the mascaras and nothing helps.    I have really long lashes and it's great and I get complemented on them all the time with people asking me if they're real and what not. The problem is they are stick straight. They look great for the first few hours but after that it's game out. I can play with them to give them a little boost but who wants to keep going that.   I curl them, I apply the Diorshow primer and I feel like i've used every mascara under the sun but i'm still open to suggestions so throw them at me. Ones to avoid because i've already used them   Guerlain Maxi Lash, Urban Decay Perversion, Benefit They're Real, Too Faced Better Than Sex, Dior Overcurl, Diorshow, YSL Volume Effet Faux Cils, and too many drug store ones to name and one that I thought actually worked pretty well but flaked   Also, lash curlers, does brand really matter? And why is it that sometime my lashes will curl the opposite direction, like out instead of back? It's also frustrating because I feel like one eye always curls perfect and other always sucks, kind of like eyeliner, it's the worst!

eye makeup for big eyes
Any ideas or tips on how to do eye makeup for big eyes? I have big eyes and my family members say that when I wear eye makeup I look scary and my eyes pop out even more.

Makeup Forever Nude Artist Palette swatches!
I tried to attach a couple photos to my public Sephora review of this palette, because I couldn't find many pictures online, but they didn't attach correctly and Sephora wouldn't let me add them later. Lame.  Anyway, here's the colors! No matte shades, although those 2 satin shades are close enough that they could be used as a transition/crease or liner without being TOO shimmery. Pigmentation, blendability, texture is all perfect, as can be expected with the nude artist shadows. Overall, I recommend this palette if you want to try a variety of the artist shades with a lower pricetag. I am bummed about the lack of finishes (I really wanted to try at least one matte shade), and I don't think the colors are extremely unique. My skin is approximately NW10-15, so I am very fair, but those two lightest shades are not going to get a ton of use for me, as they are fairly similar and I have other comparable colors, and I prefer a matte browbone highlight than something with that much shimmer. And the satin black is something I think everyone has at this point. The packaging is great. It's weighty, and the size is nice. (A square slightly smaller in length to an iphone 5, for reference.)  3.5 out of 5 stars, in my opinion. I would love to hear your thoughts!

I am looking for something new, let me know what you would suggest please I have very long lashes. I used Hypnose for years, but I want something that is more defining since I don't have a problem with volume.

Q. Which Anastasia brow powder should I get?
Currently, I'm using a dark brown eyeshadow and the brow wiz in dark brown to fill in my brows. I'm almost out of the powder, so I want to try the one from Anastasia since I prefer powders. I can't decide between dark brown or ebony, as my main concern is dark brown not being neutral/cool enough for my black eyebrows.     I love my eyebrows here, I think they're just right. The long swatch on my hand is the powder and the shorter one is the brow wiz in dark brown.

Q. Eye Makeup Brushes + Suggestions
Hello lovelies! I finally decided to take the plunge and upgrade my collection of eye makeup brushes. After ridding myself of all brushes with dubious origins (probably stolen from my mother at some point, haha!), I have three brushes that I believe are worth keeping: UD double-ended brush, UD Good Karma shadow brush, and MAC 217.

Any makeup suggestions for downturned eyes with prominent lids?
I posted something about this earlier, but it may have been confusing. For decades I thought I had round or protruding eyes. I definitely have prominent lids. I recently discovered (using the Smashbox YouTube video on eye shape) that my eyes would be what they consider to be downturned. I tried their recommendations for downturned eyes, but my lid is so big that their recommendations don't seem to do anything for me. I feel like I look pale and washed out with light shades on my lid and next to no eyeliner. Can anyone suggest an eye design for downturned eyes with prominent lids?
