Eyes Q&A
Hey gals!!!!!! I want a Clarisonic, but I cannot afford one right now. I tried eBay, but they are just as much on there as they are normally...well a few dollars cheaper, but not much... My question is this: is there anyone who has one who regrets it and wants to sell it to me? I will trade a whole bunch of products or just outright buy it. I don't need the cleanser or a head, I can buy those. I don't care about the color or if it's a Mia 1 or 2?..although I'd prefer pink or something colorful. I just need the actual unit and charger, and whatever else make it work. If you have the other stuff, great, but if not, I just want what makes it work so I can get my skin clear. I have a PayPal acct, or check, or money order... I love in Baltimore, MD so shipping may be an issue but UDPS has a flat rate box we can put it in. I ship all the time on eBay. I also want one that works, so Id be willing to trust the person that it does work and it isn't broken... So, help me? Let's Reduce, reuse, and recycle beauty products...
I am asian with double eyelids, but my crease is so thin that I can't apply eyeliner over my lashline. (It looks really weird. I used to never use top eyeliner). I always only tightline.    But I also have an oily eye area, so when I do tightline and go outside for a few hours, it ends up sliding down and pooling around the outer bottom corners!!   I've heard about using eye primer for sliding eye makeup but I can't do that if I only tightline!! Do I need to prime the bottom of my eye? Would waterproof eyeliner work?
How long should you keep eyeshadows for? Whether they are just the single ones or the whole palette?  Is it bad to keep for years and years???
I have been using MUFE concealer and I've been loving it. I love the coverage and the finish. However, I recently switched to YSL Touche Express as my eye gel. Now, everytime I use my concealer it stings unbearably like acid. Is this because of the combination of the 2 products? Do you have a similar experience with the MUFE concealer?     There are other concealers that I also like in terms of coverage, but those other concealers constantly move around. The MUFE is the only one that stays put on me. Any suggestions?     Thanks!
So I've always had really oily eyelids and it's so bad that even if I don't wear eye shadow, my foundation creases in my lid! I've used primers by Too Faced, Urban Decay, and even Cover FX but, after a while they don't work anymore. It's so annoying to have so many beautiful eye shadows and not wear them confidently because they all get hidden and smudged and just overall gross in my crease. Is there any strong eye primer product that specializes in extremely oily lids? Thank you in advance for any and all suggestions!!
I recently just bought the Naked, Naked2 and Naked3 palettes and I love them, however, the brush doesn't seem to be working that well for me and it hurts my eyes.   I'm pretty new to this and I have no idea what to get. I'd like to stay around $120 CAD and I'd like to get it off of course.   Not sure whether I'm better off getting a set or individual brushes. I really need all the help I can get.   Thanks!     EDIT I just ordered the Kat von D 5 piece brush set with case, if you guys think I need another eyeshadow brush with that, shoot. I'd like to stay under about $60 for an extra single brush.
I want to purchase Bobbie Brown Concealer Kit but don't know what shade to purchase. I use the Urban decay foundation in #7 and I am #2Y08 for the IQ. Based on this info, can you recommend a shade?

I have thick eyebrows and I'm used to getting them waxed and all that fun (expensive) stuff mostly because I don't like tweezers, they freak me out. There's only ever been one time when I actually was really happy the way my eyebrows came out with waxing. Since that hasn't happened, I've been getting my friend to do them for me. That worked for a while until she took TOO MUCH LENGTH OFF THE BACK. I cried (not really). I do color them with eye shadow and I tried pencils and gels and all that but I don't ever really get them to look nice. My questions are, should I just get over the fact of tweezers and just buy them (and anything else I need) and do them myself? and I'm also looking for products for my eyebrows, I need good ones. I had the Benefit Brow Zings, but it made my eyebrows kind of slicked down instead of "natural".  
I am looking for gluten free mascara and eyeliner. I was recently diagnosed with celiac's disease and my doc said to throw out all my cosmetics and start over. Any suggestions?
What kind of eye look would you lady's do with this dress? Please help. 
I want to use a brow pencil to fill in my brows and make them seem a bit thicker because the hairs are really thin/light; but no matter what color I choose, it doesn't work. Are there any tips that may help me in my search for a good brow pencil?
i'm looking for a cruelty free mascara with a super dramatic glam look! any suggestions? i have tried buxom and smashbox dna.. looking for more volume and pop. thank you!
I need some eyelashes for about a month in school (due to an unfortunate eyelash curling incident) and i need some that are not too intensely long or dramatic. Any suggestions would be great.
i have really short eyelashes. how can i make them longer?
how do you store double ended brushes ? to keep them from any damage
Hi, there! I recently got interested in wearing eyeshadow all the time and all I'm able to do is the basic three-toned look with browns or peachy shadows. I love colors and I want to incorporate them in my makeup! The only problem is that I haven't been able to find a tutorial for adding a little pop of color without being too dramatic (I'd be wearing it throughout the day). If anyone could help, I'd greatly appreciate it! [also keep in mind that I haven't been doing makeup for very long, so a simple solution would be awesome ]
I have oily eyelids and I've noticed at the end of the day that my waterproof mascara (which I apply to my top and bottom lashes) smudges in the creases underneath my lower lash line. Since my mascara is waterproof you think this wouldn't happen. Anyways, is there any way that I can prevent my mascara from smudging under my lower lash line and to keep my eyelids from looking so oily as it's not cute? Finally does Anastasia Lash Genius Waterproof Topcoat really work? I was thinking of maybe trying that with a non-waterproof mascara that I love in order to make it waterproof. Thanks
I'm pretty new to Sephora. I have their nail polish and a few makeup items but I'm looking to branch out and buy one of the makeup pallets.  I know they are a pretty good amount of money so I want to be sure on which to buy. Any opinions or recommendations? Thanks!(:
Which palette is the best by Urban Decay? I was wondering what everyone's opinion on Urban Decay palettes were and what their favorite eyeshadow color is by them. 
hi, i have dark brown hair and my eyes are dark green (today) and i would like to know how to do my make up so that they pop.... and which colors to use.. thank you
So, I just got my Urban Decay Anarchy Face Case in the mail today... LOVE IT ALREADY! It's as amazing as I thought it would be! Now I was just wondering if y'all would tell me a recipe for an eye look that included the Urban Decay shades: Redemption, Fray, Vaporize, Provocateur, and Revolt. Thanks!  
Whenever I wear eyeliner or mascara my eyes dry out, itch, turn red and glassy. Can anyone recommend an eyeliner and mascara that won't do any of these things to my eyes?
I'm fairly new to using make up, so I really have no idea of what color eyeliner to use... I'm Asian, I have brown eyes, fairly tanned skin. I'm kind of bored of using black eyeliner, so what would you recommend? I've been thinking about blue, green or purple, but I'm not sure. Also what product would you recommend? Thanks.

Hi, I'm looking for an eyeliner recommendation from those more experienced with eyeliner than me.   Here are what I am looking for in an eyeliner: Black.  The eyeliner recommendation has to be a highly pigmented black. Easy to use.  I am pretty new to using eyeliner, so I want an eyeliner made for beginners. Not too expensive.  My price range is $25 and under. Thanks in advance for the recommendations. 
I have oily lids (specifically in the inner corners) and am in need of a great primer. I'm currently using Urban Decay Original Primer Potion, but am wondering if either Too Faced Shadow Insurance or NARS Smudgeproof Eye Shadow Base will work better. I would like to know which one you guys prefer and why.   Thanks!
What are the best non-prescription eyelash-growth products? How do their results differ from those of the prescription-only product? Thanks in advance for your help.
This may sound like kind of a weird question.  I have a few lashes that tend to annoy me.  When I'm not wearing mascara, I'll have a few lashes to hang down and poke me in the eye, but they're not ready to fall out or anything.  Sometimes when I am wearing mascara, a lash or two may hang into my eye if I missed coating it.  On other occasions, if a few aren't hanging into my eyes, it is placed at a weird angle.  If I try to move it back, it'll go back to its weird angle.  (and I am talking about real lashes)    I can't stand having anything in my eyes (OCD thing; there's no way I could wear contacts if I ever needed them).  If I feel like something is there, I'll use a mirror and search for whatever the cause is, and it is often my misbehaving lashes.    I tried my best to take pictures to kind of illustrate my problem.  I hope I don't sound too crazy or anything.  Has anyone else been annoyed at an issue like this?  Do certain mascaras cause it or anything?  Maybe there's a different mascara I should try?       This is my right eye, makeup free.  Towards the left, there's a lash that is touching the bottom ones, and a few towards the middle top are kind of down.  Please ignore the need to pluck.                This one shows it a bit better.  There's also a lash on the left side doing its own thing, along with the one that pokes my lower lash line.  Super annoying.              My left eye isn't as bad as my right one at the moment.  There's one lash that tends to do its own thing while the lashes at the outer corner sometimes curl differently compared to the right eye.
I assume that fake eye lashes go on I wrong? Also...I have trouble putting on fake eyelashes and making sure they stay on...any tips?
I think black eyeliner is looking a bit harsh lately and brown is a bit blah. A nice dark purple/brown or purple/black is what I'm on the hunt for...any reccos for a long lasting option?
