Long-term use of NARS Pro Prime Eyeshadow Base
My usual primer hasn't been working very well lately so I tried a sample of the NARS and love it! It seems to dry down my eyelids a bit so I was wondering if anyone has used this long term and noticed any skin issues? I wouldn't want to dry out my skin long term to prevent shadow creasing in the short term.   Thanks!

Any recommendations for a good skinny/precision eyeliner?
Hello BTers, Any recommendations for a good, slim eyeliner? I prefer gel eyeliners (no pots if possible), but find that most of them are too thick, and so I don't have as much precision.

Dupe to Laura Mercier Gilded Rosegold shadow in a single form for Z Palette
Hi Beautiful People,    I recently decided to overhaul my makeup collection. I've tossed a lot of products and purchased some new and improved items as well. In depot-ing my favorite shadows, I discovered that the Laura Mercier Gilded Rosegold shadow I purchased long ago was not in a pan. (I figured this out after I already broke the case/shell it was in). l am interested in finding something small enough to fit in my small z palette. So, eyeshadow or single blush size. I don't care what brand (or even price) as long as I can find a replacement. I mostly use this on my eyes in the inner corner or as a highlight. Granted, this shadow is probably several years old and should be tossed, but I can't let it go without a replacement.    Let's just say I knew who to turn to in order to find the perfect substitute.    Thank you to everyone,    J

Eye Makeup Brushes 101
Hello Ladies and Gentlemen,   I have purchased the Too Faced Peach Palette and I have a quinceneara coming up for which I want to do my own make up (I am the guest). My sister has the ABH Modern Renaissance palette which I might borrow depending on what look I will go with. I need some advice from all you experts on the type of brushes I need. I have been watching some YouTube videos and some of the artists have soooo many brushes which gets me lost.   Please please help on guiding me to brushes and brands. I have E.L.F. brushes but I heard of Sigma brushes.   Thank you in advance.   Also, how to people put fake eye lashes by themselves?!

Naked palettes?
I'm considering investing in a Naked palette for every day use; however, I'm not sure which one would be best for me. I'm blonde with hazel eyes and pale/fair skin. I also wear black glasses daily. Right now I'm using the Elf Prism Palette in Sunset as my daily one, but I don't use the darkest shade much. I'm looking to expand my eyeshadow abilities and colors, and it seems like a Naked one is a good way to do it. Thoughts?

Natural Looking Everyday Mascara
Hey beauties! I've recently been on the hunt for a natural looking mascara to wear during the daytime. I have strawberry blonde hair, so it's quite difficult finding a color that doesn't look to dramatic. I love the Benefit They're Real, but I find it's too difficult to remove and it's actually ruining my lashes! Ahhh!!! I have very long but invisible lashes, any suggestions? Thanks in advance! xoxo

Has anyone else had hard bumps appear on their matte eyeshadows?  I've only had my palette for 6 days and there are these hard bumps on the matte shadows. It's driving me crazy because it is out of stock and I can't exchange it! If this is normal I'll just return it, but I love the shade selection so if I can exchange it I would prefer that. It's frustrating because it is such an expensive palette and I don't know what to do!

Best Dramatic and smudge-proof Mascara?
I have always had a big problem with mascara that smudges underneath my eyes... I have found a couple mascaras that work well, I am currently using Tarte's amazonian clay mascara, while I like it, it gives a more natural look.   I want a mascara that gives volume and has a dark, inky black color. I know it would be best to test many mascaras out, but I don't really have the time (or money). Thanks so much, for any and all suggestions!

So of course I have the problem that has plagued us all for years: falling in love in eye shadow pallettes BUT you help.

I will post pictures for reference. Does not matter brand of shadows... In the first picture, "Smoky", from the left....the first shade and the fourth shade (purple and green) The second pallette...."Ablaze"....second of the left...(red shade)...brand doesn't matter

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 anything...plus 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 Meteorites....is 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?
