Q. Any suggestions for black liquid eyeliner?
I prefer the BRUSH tips and not the FELT tips. I would love some suggestions. I use to use wet and wild liquid eyeliner but they recently changed their brush tip to a felt tip and I'm heartbroken!   Please give me suggestions.

Q. Eyebrow tamer!
Hi! I have nicely shaped and moderately full eyebrows, however, I'm looking for a product to add a little bit of structure to them. I don't like the thickness of gels, and I like the idea of a little definition from the pencil. Does anyone have a pencil they use that keep the little stray hairs in place? Or a brow gel that's super light? Thanks!

Q. recommend palette to complement my current ones?
Hellooo! So currently this is my lineup:   - Naked 2 - Naked Smokey - Naked Basics 1 - bh 88 matte   I'm considering: - KVD Shade + Light - Tartelette Amazonian Clay Matte - Too Faced Chocolate Bar - Open to other suggestions!   I'd looove to get all of them, but alas, I am poor and can only shell out for one.. so which do I get?!    CRITERIA: - Would like more reddish tones - Complements what I currently have (not too much overlap in colors) - I prefer mattes, but I don't mind a couple shimmers. - My skin tone is umm.. tan asian skin? (I'd say my skin shade is similar to Jamie Chung's.)   Would love to hear your guys' advice, thank you!!

Q. eyebrow help
So I have been using the Anastasia dip brow pomade to fill in my brows for a while now (i have very very light eyebrow hairs). But when i fill them in it always comes out sort of ashy and when overhead light shines on them, they sort of disappear. It looks really unnatural and its obvious they are colored in. I even tried buying the proper angled brush to help. Maybe I bought the wrong color? Am I pressing too hard while applying? When i watch tutorials their eyebrows always look smooth and flawless but mine just turn out, for a lack of better words... crusty! Please Help! Thanks so much!

Q. Who has tried Velvet Noir Mascara by Marc Jacobs?!
i just tried this mascara recently and LOVE it! It glides in so nicely and doesn't clump at all. I can blink right after application & not have to worry about it going all over my face-now it's about time a mascara doesn't make more of a mess if you don't keep your eye pried open until they dry! Haha Am I right? Who else has tried this mascara? What do you think?

Q. Is there something wrong with my Naked 3 palette?
I received a Naked 3 palette for Christmas, and I'm loving it. The colors are all super nice and pigmented, except for one - "Trick". My brush barely picks up ANY color from it at all; I have to layer it several times with my finger to even have the swatch look SIMILAR to the color in the pan. Is yours like this too, or is something wrong with mine? Maybe they're all just like this, but this was not what I was expecting from Urban Decay.

Hi everyone, With so many options, it is difficult to decide on a what everyday eyeshadow palette I want to get. Do you guys have any good suggestions? I am Asian and my skintone is a warm medium.

Q. Help me pick out the perfect palette!
Hi everybody! I'm hoping you guys can help me out, I want to purchase my first higher end eyeshadow palette, but I'm a little overwhelmed with all the options and am unsure about which tones would suit me best. I'm fair skinned with somewhere between a cool and neutral undertone, darker red/auburn hair (natural) and green eyes. (For example my coloring is very similar to that of Julianne Moore's) I just want something that i can create a few everyday/daytime looks but with a little variety. (I was looking at Naked 1 and The Chocolate Bar but I'm open to any and all options) Anyway thanks in advanced for the advice!

Q. Eyebrow help
  So after a year of finally getting my eyebrows to where I want them I woke up this morning and one of my eyebrows was super itchy, almost burning! Of course my first instinct is to rub it, and then i felt the hair on my hand and ran to the bathroom. Now my one eyebrow is thin and uneven and looks deflated almost! I'm getting married in two weeks and i'm literally in tears over this because I'm almost positive no amount of powder or pencil will fix this. I'm tempted to go to my eyebrow threader and tell her just to thin them both to even. ><   Any suggestions on products/tips to shape them back?

Q. ONLY choosing 2 palettes, NAKED 2, Tartlette, or Too Faced Chocolate Bar. Which ones?
Hello, I purchased a Naked 2 palette I like it but I don't love it. However I absolutely love the Tartelette palette so I think I'm definitely getting that one. I was looking into the versitality of the Chocolate Bar. I don't have many eyeshadows but I like more matte finishes but I would also like to have shimmers to wear for an occasion. I like the smokey eye look you can create with the Naked 2 Pallete. I'm also dark olive skinned. So, which two pallets should I go for? Hi guys just to clarify that I will be buying the Tartlette palette for a more everyday, feminine wear. I'm not sure to pick between naked 2 or chocolate bar. I want mattes for everyday, and smokey eyes and I would like some shimmer to go out also. I don't really want any repeating shades either. So, naked 2 or chocolate bar? Since I'm gettin Tartlette for sure

Q. Best Matte Black Eyeliner?
I am in such a fuss right now! I have been unable to find a deep un metallic  black liner! I have tried KVD Tattoo Liner (reflectes isn't matte) , MUG Immortal (transferred in my crease!), Lime Crime Quill liner (same issue as KVD), ABH creme color (tugged on my eyes too much) and nothing is dark enough!   I'm at a loss here since in photos my normal liner looks like a dark grey from the highlights natural lighting.   Also, it'd be nice to have color recommendation other than black to accent my eyes since I'm working with two shades here. They're blue however the yellowish green in my eyes is a decent amount, and often certain bronzes draw my eyes in, rather out.    Helppp!

Q. Help! I'm looking for eyeshadow that is not matte or too shimmery. Prefer satin finish. Rop
I'm looking for brands that carry eyeshadow that has more of a satin finish. I'm not looking for matte or too shimmery eyeshadows. MAC has some satin finish but what brands in Sephora have similar?   I would like something to wear across my eyelid to brighten my eyes. I prefer neutral to warm tones. My eyes are green with gold flecks, neutral to warm skin tone, light to medium skin tone, medium to dark brown hair. My eye shape is hooded.   As I become older I'm not a fan of too shimmery eyeshadows for my lids. Any rec's for eyeshadow that has satin finish?   Thanks!

Q. Difference between UD Naked palettes?
Hi all! Awhile ago I did a post on what eye shadow palette I should get for Christmas- I was mainly interested in matte shadows. But now I'm kind of changing my mind and looking into the Naked Palettes from Urban Decay!  As long as they aren't full or glitter or fall out, I'm good!  But my question is, (for people who own all 3 or even just one of them), what is the difference between the Naked 1, 2, & 3?  I have heard that the Naked 1 is more warm toned, but I'm still not sure. If anyone has any swatches of them I'd love to see a picture(s). I prefer more natural shades, too. If it helps any I have red hair, light(ish) complexion, and brown eyes. I know a lot of people love these palettes, and  it makes me interested in them and want one of my own!  Hopefully they aren't glitter shades. To me they look a little shimmerish, maybe metallic, and maybe some matte. And Hopefully the color pay off is good too- and the colors last all day and don't fade.(?) I always use UD potion primer anyway though! Thank you! ~XOXOXO

Q. What waterproof mascara works best for sensitive eyes?
I have extremely sensitive eyes and allergies. I have previously had reactions to some makeup brands and mascaras, and when my allergies are especially bad, I usually don't wear mascara at all (and opt for fake lashes).   However, with summer here, I'm finding it really difficult to find a waterproof mascara that matches the results of my every day mascaras without making my eyes puff up.   Mascara brands I find myself unable to wear are Make Up Forever, and Too Faced.   My everyday mascaras are Perversion by Urban Decay, and Hypnose by Lancome. I have the waterproof version of Hypnose (what I'm using currently) but am unhappy with the results.   If anyone knows a good brand to try that won't flake or irritate my eyes (gentle formula), but would give the volume of a regular mascara, it would be greatly appreciated!
