For all ladies who are waiting for Kat von D, I went to JCP Sephora to pick up the Vice 3 palette and lo and behold Kat von D's Holiday sets were out! I was completely surprised and excited to get them coz they were not even out online or Sephora store yet but here's a quick look at them on display. The lady told me they just got them in yesterday. I'll take better pics when I get them home.
i just saw a commercial for Manga Mascara! It looks so neat to be able to do, and before now, I didn't even think to do my lashes that way. Has this always existed and I just didn't know? Has as anyone done this before, with or without manga "mascara?"
I'm looking for a felt tipped liquid eyeliner that isn't an intense black color. I've been using Maybelline's line stiletto for a while and I've noticed that when it starts to run out it gets fainter, which I actually think looks better. All the grey liners I've seen looked too light and I don't like brown liquid eyeliner. Does anyone know of a liquid eyeliner that's something like a charcoal black instead of just black black? Thanks!
Hi kids! This is my first 'conversation' so please forgive me if I'm doing something wrong. I realized that I have zero good quality blue eye shadows and I was wondering what everyone's favorites are! I've always been afraid of looking like Mimi (see photo for reference) so I tend to go for neutrals or metallics. I have brown eyes and light/medium skin Please share your favorites so I can start a shopping list! <3M
I need help with really bad dark circles. They are hereditary, no matter what I do they are not going anywhere. On top of that they are deep set. The concealer wears off very fast and it always ends up creasing. If that's not all, I have golden undertones. It is very difficult to find a color that matches my skin and it never looks right; I end up with a grayish shadow. I need help. I'm tired of looking tired with make up on.
I have sensitive skin in general. If I put on any kind of eye makeup, I am fine for 8-12 hours. But when I remove the makeup (does not matter how I do it: using a wash, wipes, makeup remover), my upper lid swells up for a day or so. I have to skip a day of eye makeup to go back to normal. I have thrown mascaras away thinking the tube is too old, no difference. I truly think if I sleep in my makeup, I will be fine (not that I want to do that). I have noticed the more tugging I do on the lid, the more the swelling. I use UD primer on lids, I also tried too face primer with no difference. I use origins eye cream on lower lid but nothing for upper lid.I use dior mascara, UD shadows, smashbox concealer for lower lid( which is starting to cake for no good reason). Any suggestions? thanks in advance. I would go to a sephora store for advice but the closest one to me is an hour away!
i need a eyeshadow and a eyeliner that will last me 2 days without creasing because i wont be able to aply makeup for 2 days ik its a hard thing 2 find but does anyone have any suggestions i do use a eye primer by benifit
I've been looking at reviews and everything for a good gel liner, so far I think UD has a good one, I've swatched it and it does a nice job at staying put. But if anyone else has any other brand suggestions. I tried the benefit they're real push up liner and when I get it right, I love the way the formula looks, just a real deep black matte, but I don't like the applicator form. If anyone has good suggestions I'd like to know but so far UD remains inthe lead. I looked up if anyone was raving about this product in the thread but I didn't have any luck finding anything.
I received Vice 3 and got to wear it yesterday. I found the shadows super soft and buttery. I have a lot of UD palettes and singles, but Vice 3 kind of reminds me of the shadow formula in their Pulp Fiction palette. Anyone else? i was particularly interested in the reds. I used Sonic yesterday and it did not look like the color I thought it would when it went on my lid. I didn't dislike it but was just surprised - I was expecting kind of a ruby color. But I loved the base shade I picked and my crease color. It is a palette with lots of options and possibilities! i have that and Ten. I will try to swatch them, especially the liners since I have so many other UD liners already, I can see if there are any that exist that are close. just wondering if anyone else had thoughts on the shadow formulas in Vice 3 or LTD, or on the colors in Ten.
Hi! I normally use benefits "Erase Paste" in the shade fair, but I want to order NARS radiant creamy concealer, I don't really wear makeup so I don't know but would the first shade of the NARS "Chantilly" or the second shade "Vanilla" work better with me and be the one to most likely match my fair erase paste? Thanks in advance!
Hi, beauties! I need some brow help -- my eyebrows are a light-medium ashy brown and my hair is a light red (almost strawberry blond, but still red). My colorist is leery of lightening them. I had been using the left side of Anastasia Brow Powder in Caramel (formerly Strawburn) to warm them up, but because they're ashy, they still look so dark. I tried MAC Brow Set Gel (the newer one) in Toasted Blond, which works well sometimes but it doesn't deposit enough color. I've also been to the Benefit Brow Bar, but they don't lighten, and the auburn shade they have is very dark. My colorist says she cautions against brow lightening because she said they have the tendency to go orange(!), but I'm wondering if anyone has successfully done it themselves, gone somewhere, or if there's a product you recommend that would really lighten the appearance (and add warmth), because they're driving me crazy. (Luckily, my bangs cover them a bit.) Thank you in advance! ETA: Maybe I should have posted this in "Hair" instead of eye makeup.
So, I've been eyeing the YSL Couture Palettes for a few months now, and I keep flip flopping between a few different palettes. In addition, some of them are not displayed in my local Sephora (such as the top one). Here's my shortlist: Couleurs 11 Couleurs 09 So, my questions are: 1) Are there any other ones I should be considering? 2) What are people's experiences with YSL eyeshadows? 3) Do I really need the Couleurs 09 if I have the Urban Decay Naked 3? I understand that this palette is more warm-toned than the UD one, but I don't want to be wasteful with this purchase.
I use daily (and LOVE!) Urban Decay's 24/7 waterproof liquid eyeliner in perversion and I just went to reorder it...and it seems that it's no longer available?! HELP! Does anyone have a suggestion for one that is like it? I absolutely LOVED the brush and the color. Some eyeliners are TOO black and this one was just right. Thanks!
hi everyone, I need some advice please. I see a couple of barely used if ever, UD palettes for sale on Kijiji (our equivalent of Craigslist) There is the Glinda palette, the Deluxe eyeshadow palette, the Naked 2 palette. Under $20 each. I am really tempted to grab - esp the N2 since I only have the 3. Is it safe to buy used palettes if I use my own brushes and wipe off the top layer of shadow?
My left eye gets watery from time to time and after about 2 hours I end up with one eye perfect and the other is a mess. My mascara is fine, but my shadow is wrecked from the moisture. I never rub my eye, just gently dab the outer corner (where it's watering) with a tissue or the edge of my finger. In my ideal world there would be a product I can use to spray on my makeup like a sealant (someone, please make my day and tell me such a product exists!) but until then, I'll settle on advice from my favorite fellow beauty junkies!
I keep going back and forth between buying another UD palette (like Vice 3) or trying Too Faced Pretty Rebel or Boudoir Eyes. I have a UD palette but no TF yet. Not sure - which brand do you prefer for eyeshadows?
Does anyone have any dupe swatches for the UD honey color? I'm utterly depressed that I haven't found anything that quite comes close to the brassiness it has, as most other colors come up as straight gold (el Dorado) or gold-brown (Baked) without the brightness. Looking to match this with Smog, thus the focus on this being a tonal brightness. All suggestions welcome and thank you! <3
Hi, I just bought the absolutely gorgeous Palette Extravaganza / Extravagancia (to those across the pond) - and was wondering the best ways to wear this palette? I have deep set eyes, and dark colors can sometimes make it look like I have a black eye when wearing (even with under eye makeup - but maybe I'm doing it wrong). Of course - I'm especially with the darkest, plum glittery color. Any advice would be most appreciated!
I am just now getting into wearing false lashes, even bought a lot of them recently. I love how they make my eyes look with that POP! Now here is the problem, I have been using Bimatoprost since May and my lashes are long, but not the Latisse long. I use the lashes to enhance more, but the glue(s) I use do work but some how burn my eyes a little...I don't know if its my allergies which isn;t too bad but the burning feel is not pleasant. I used Duo with vit A,C D Revlon's supplied glue that came with lashes..Eyelure now could it be because of the lash serum that could be affecting and causing the semi-burning feeling. No my eyes don;t turn red at all. Just that annoying feeling. thanks..any recommendations/advice is extremely welcomed. I love my lashes and don;t want to part with them...
Does anyone know a drug store dupe for the lorac pro liner? I'm looking for a dupe I can use everyday since I go through the pens rather quickly. I'm looking for a similar tip that is soft. I've tried the NYX fat eye marker but it too hard and drags on my eyelids. The best dupe I've tried is physician's formula but I'm looking for other options.
