Chronic Dry Eye
I have chronic dry eye and am trying to find the most gentle and nonirritating eye makeup on the market. Does anyone else have this problem? I've been told the best thing to do is not wear any makeup at all but I can't stand how I look without eye makeup.

I have wondered if the new tubular mascaras would be a good choice because of the way that they don't flake off at all, but rinse off with warm water and friction. see post

How old is too old when it comes to eyeliner...?
So recently I've been thinking about how old some of my eyeliners are becoming - namely, the 24/7 liner set Urban Decay released for their 15th Anniversary 5 years ago. (Hard to believe it's been that long!) Some of the liners in this set have barely been touched; it's hard to use up 15 full size liners when you have lots of other makeup that needs love too! I'm just wondering if it's completely disgusting to use pencil liners that are 5 years old? Obviously, I can sharpen them down to fresh points, but are there ingredients that may have gone "bad" in them? I know that the texture of the pencils will more than likely not be the same as when they were new and they won't be as soft, but as long as it's safe to use as liner I don't really mind...

Which shimmer palette: UD Moondust or KvD Serpentina?
I can't get to a store for a while to swatch, so I'm trying to get some opinions from folks who have tried the shadows. I think I would use the colors in Serpentina a bit more, but some of the reviews say the quality isn't up to snuff. UD rarely fails on quality, but the colors aren't quite as much what I'd use. And I really can't afford both! Help - which do I splurge on? Which would you pick?

I need help cleaning my Sephora Luxe False Lashes!!
Okay, so I am in love with my Sephora luxe lashes in "plume".  However, they are VERY delicate and I've already ruined one pair trying to remove excess glue.  I'm confused about this since I was told that I should be able to use these lashes up to 30 times.  I was told by a sales associate at Sephora that I should soak them in my eye makeup remover then carefully peel the glue off.  They literally disintegrated...  Has anyone else figured this out?  I want to get my 30 uses seeing as how they are $17!!

Eyeliner and eye color.
Hello everyone!   I had a quick question about eyeliners and wanted to get some additional advice!  I don't wear much makeup, and I usually wear eyeliners in order to make my eyes look bigger, but I was wondering if I selected a good color, could I also use eyeliners to enhance my eye color?  My eyes are hazel, so they're brown on the inside and green around the edges, but the green tends to grow more and dominate more when it's darker out.  I saw an eyeliner who's color was Oliver: Dark Army Green, and looked to be a mixture of brown/green. Would this product be a good example of a way to enhance the green in my eyes as well as having a natural look?  Thanks for all your assistanc
