Take the Challenge: Palette Parade version 2.0
My name is Bombshell and I continue to be an eyeshadow addict enthusiast !! However, five weeks ago I began a quest to actually start using my mountains and mountains of palettes and shadows. Along with some awesome ladies who have joined in I have committed to using the same palette 5 days in a row and posting the results at the end of five days. Those with single shadows are welcome to join in as well!  If you are interested in the original rules & lists posted they can be found in off topic, (take the challenge: palette parade).  the gist of it is make a list, plan to show all your shadows love for extended period of time (5days), if you hate it first day move on. I am also planning to add weeks of singles by brand (Stila week, UD week, Nars week).  I think instead of posting and editing lists it would be easier to report what we plan to use at the beginning of the week and the report the results at the end. We meet here at the end of the week to discuss what we wore for the week, how it worked for us and most importantly to share pictures and advice! Anyone can join as we all started at different times and have different numbers of palettes, and will finish at different times. I am looking at 38 (?) more weeks if I don't buy one more palette! Xoxo I look forward to more fun parading with all you girls! Palette Parade Princesses: CalamityJane85, Nikki, LadyMeag, Beethousand, AmberAngeline, MaFan, nurseCupcake, Carolang, Jenblush, Malday, Sparlekai, GHKim, IttyxBittyxMe, Katie241, SirenPrincess, Manniface.

Is it just me, or is this crazy gorgeous?
Enable me? Disable me?   Pros : As previously stated, gorgeous Laura Mercier has yet to disappoint me   Cons : $44 for a quad is kind of a lot. Not Guerlain A Lot, but still. I'm not so sure about baked eyehadows. I haven't worked with them much a all.       http://www.sephora.com/baked-eye-colour-quad-P3857 65?skuId=1598689

Tubing Mascaras
So I recently had my makeup done and the make up artist ranted and raved about how the mascara she was using was a tubing mascara that wraps around my lashes and I could just pull them off with my fingers.  How can I tell if a particular mascara fits into this category??   I wouldn't mind having one as an option in my make up case.  I still think it flakes so as a staple I would still prefer my waterproof but, on occasion, I could see it being an option. Is it a trial and error thing??  Most labels don't provide that description. Thanks!

Eyeshadow inspiration
I mentioned the other day in the palette parade thread that it would be cool if someone started a thread with a picture of a cool eye look and we all tried our hands at it. So CalamityJane (the bully) told me to start it. My immediate thought was "But I wanted someone else to do it!!" Then I decided I was being a whiny little b*tch and should get to it.   So without further ado, here's the first Eyeshadow Inspiration! I had been wanting to try a green/bronze eye look for awhile and thought this one looked fun. Here is my not-very-good attempt at it:     As always, lighting was a bit of an issue (why won't my blush ever show up?!?), but even though the colors aren't captured perfectly you can still kind of see them.   Anyone else want to try? Feel free to substitute colors and change it up (maybe using whatever your palette-of-the-week is?). I love seeing what people here come up with!

Another winning eye shadow palette: Too Faced Chocolate Bar
I bought this about a month ago and finally used it. Yep, it's lovely! Of course, smelling like chocolates doesn't hurt. But the colors are very pigmented. You can go from neutral to really dramatic with this palette. A keeper!   http://www.sephora.com/the-chocolate-bar-eye-palet te-P384402?skuId=1578012

Estee Lauder Sumptuous Extreme Lash Multiplying Volume Mascara
This mascara seems to get overlooked, so I wanted to give it a shout out. I am not a fan of curling my lashes at all. and this mascara does it for me. A cast mate told me she used it, and it curled her lashes. And of course I was skeptical. I tried it, and it yes it does! I don't use an eyelash curler anymore. And my lashes look thick and long. Now I've been a Benefit's Yes They're Real girl for a while, but this beats it.

eyeliner smudges
So I have this liquid eyeliner pen by L'oreal which I like because it gives me a wet jet black look and it goes on smoothly. However it always gets in my crease even though I use a paint pot ( primer) beforehand. Any ideas on how to fix that?   Also any recommendations on how to fix your eyeliner when you already have put on your primer and shadow? I have a habit of making one eye too thick and end up having to make them both thick then

Cargo Spring Tea Tin Cream Eyeshadow Palette for Spring 2014

I haven't seen any reviews on it although Musings of a Muse had it on her site, but it was just so cute and I love cream shadows.   I've always been pleased with Cargo products, and I was in the mood to buy a new palette but none of the powder palettes were doing it for me, so this was perfect!  I'll let you know how I like it!

Favorite Under-Eye Highlight?
I used to use Anastasia Beverly Hills Cooling Eye Brightener, which I LOVED, but it's harder to find now and Sephora doesn't carry it anymore.  I then switched to Smashbox Photo Op Under Eye Brightener which does it's job, but doesn't knock me out of the ballpark and I love trying new things - so I want to know what you ladies use as an under eye highlight! Dark circles aren't a real concern for me, I just like highlighting that under eye area, because it really brightens up my face. (: Any under-eye highlight suggestions? (:

Cream Eye Liner - OMG Help!!!
I just bought a cream eye liner for the first time. I accidentally left it out with the cap off because I was in a hurry for an appointment, and completely forgot until I noticed it the next day. Normally I make my own eye liner everytime I do my makeup with loose powder pigment & either Aqua Liner Sealer waterproofing liquid or Bare Escentuals Weather Everything sealant. Or use a plain liquid eye liner. So I'm not sure what to do about Creme pot liners. Now my cream eye liner is way drier than it was yesterday. It's not completely solid yet. The top layer is much more dry than the middle or bottom of the pot of course. Is there any way to revive my cream eye liner? Or did I ruin it forever?!?!

Corrector or Highlighter/Brightener?
I am trying to decide whether I should get the bobbi brown corrector or a brightening pen for under my eyes. Currently, I use the NARS creamy concealer and the smashbox under eye primer and I would like to be able to wear these things with whatever I get. I want the finish under my eyes to be bright, but still natural and smooth. (I have so much trouble getting a smooth finish!)   I am contemplating on getting:   - bobbi brown corrector - givenchy mister light - marc jacobs remedy concealer pen - ysl touche eclat    also, quick question, how should I set my concealer? Because I feel like powder only makes it look more dry and flakey. My eyes tend to get very dry and end up looking flakey and cakey even a few minutes after I finish my make up.   Thanks!
