Q. NAKED 2 BASICS OR TOO FACED NATURAL MATTE??
 Hiiiii everyone!  So I have the Naked 1 & 2 full palettes & I love them. However, I am kind of wanting more brown colors. A friend suggested Naked 2 Basics or Too Faced Natural Matte but I am trying to decide if I need them or if the first two Naked Palette's I have are good enough.... I am bad at making decisions haha! I just didn't know whether to spend the money or just stick with Naked 1 & 2.    I also considered getting an eyebrow kit but I wasn't sure whether I wanted to spend the money on that either.... Just need some feedback & suggestions. Thanks so much. Bella

Q. Naked Palette Dupe
I've been wanting the Urban Decay Naked Palette for a while now. I'm going to be honest and say that I'm just tired of waiting. What would be a good dupe for the Naked Palette? I dont need an exact copy but something along the lines of it would be a nice swap.    I've been considering getting the Too Faced Naked Eye Soft and Sexy Collection instead. What do you guys think? I'm totally open to suggestions!   Thanks!   xoxo

Q. Tattoo Liner
I recently received the Kat Von D Tattoo Liner for my birthday a few weeks ago after wanting it for months. While it's amazing at creating a perfect wing, it dries out midway through the second eye. I usually have to dig up another eyeliner to finish it. Is there just something wrong with mine? Should i get another one and try again?

Q. Eye shadow colour to compliment Urban Decay's "Toasted"?
I recently purchased Urban Decay eye shadow single in "toasted." I was hoping for any recommendation on another eye shadow colour to give "toasted" more depth and compliment the colour. For reference, my skin tone is fair-medium (very similar to Kim Kardashian's complexion, as much as I dislike making that comparison it's the only celebrity I can think of). My eyes are deep set and I also have severe dark circles (which I cover with concealer but that can only do so much) so I can't use very dark colours that would enhance my dark circles or give the illusion my eyes are receding to the back of my skull. My eye colour is also a super dark hazel. Any recommendation would be appreciated! EDIT: I wanted to have toasted on the eyelid/as a base. But any advice on how to use it (such as it being a highlighter or crease colour) is fine. I'm not dead set on needing it to be the eyelid colour or anything. I'm open to any recommendation- doesn't even have to be Urban Decay!

Q. UD Vice 3- Am I losing my mind?
I have a bit of a weakness for bright, intense, and oftentimes wild color choices when it comes to eyeshadows. So it really comes to no surprise to me that I often look to UD for colors and inspirations.   But I distinctly remember seeing, a few months back, the new (at the time) Vice 3 palette, and I mainly wanted to throw my money at the cashiers for just the two colors that stood out to me: Bondage and Sonic. They were both gorgeous red shades, and I suppose I'm a sucker for red.   Then it just disappeared. I know that their main site probably still sells the palette, but in retrospect I'd be mainly paying $60 for two colors. So... no.   What I want to know is One: If it WAS pulled from the stores and I'm NOT going crazy, and Two: Are there any other brands that make red shadow tones? I think Make Up For Ever makes a bright red loose pigment that I may use to blend with other colors, and it's in the back of my mind, but I was more curious to know if there are more options out there?

Q. Precise crease Brush
Hello everyone! I want to buy a good crease brush but I hesitate between the Nars # 44 and the MUFE # 216. I already have the Mac 217 and Mac 224 but I find they are too big for my eyes.

Q. Make Up Advice
Hello Everyone!   I have a couple of questions that I have tried to research but I am getting conflicting reviews and products.     I have been a big fan of Benefits Bad Gal lashes for a long time but I have noticed that the mascara doesn't last as long as I would like it too.  I have also used They're Real by Benefit but my eyelashes would stick together and I found it difficult to take off.     I have thin short eye lashes and I am wanting to find a mascara that will make my almond shaped eyes full, lengthy, and doe eyed.  I do not wear much make up, usually mascara and eyeshadow.   I am wanting something to make my eyes POP with a full feathery long eye lashes, without using false eyelashes.  I am terrible at putting them on and eye lash extensions are too pricey to maintain.   I would love some recommendations of amazing mascaras that I would be able to try and LOVE.  Also, I am also interested in getting into a more neutral look with my eye shadow.  I have kind of green/brown with a small hint of blue eyes.  I do not like bright colors like purple or blue.  Any suggestions on mascara and eyeshadow that would help would be amazing!  Also my skin is also very light, phfff winter.     Thank you so much for your advice.   Britt

Q. Best lash primer?
The last couple of lash primers I tried (which, to be fair, was a while ago) were really disappointing---causing a lot of flaking & clumping.  That said, I'd really like to find a great one that does a good job of conditioning & protecting my lashes.  From what I hear it seems like DiorShow Maximizer Lash Plumping Serum and Givenchy's Mister Lash are probably the best two, but was hoping for some feedback on which is better.   Update:  Based on the advice you guys gave me I got the Dior, and it is amazing!
