Does anyone else dislike the TF Chocolate Bar palette?
I feel like this is a palette that is an all-around favorite for a lot of people (other than a few people that I've seen who complain about the smell). I regret buying it a lot, though. I'm honestly not sure what it is about it, but I can't seem to get it to work for me no matter what I do. The shadows are pretty pigmented, though some of them are useless to me because they're essentially just different shades of slightly sheer white. I just can't seem to make any decent looks with it. Anyone else finding it less than awesome, or have any suggestions for looks?

I absolutely love it!  I find there are a lot of really good crease colours, and I can always make a really pretty neutral look.  But if you really hate it return it.   see post

Eyebrow Products Running Out Quickly?
I was wondering what product I should try next because I've used 2 eyebrow pencils:  the anastasia brow wiz which lasted about 3 months for me but it started giving me dry spots on my eyebrows? i thought that wasn't a long period of time especially considering the price so i ended up purchasing the Nars brow perfector. I like the formula better but i've only used it for about a month and it looks like i only have a week to two weeks of product left. I thought it would last longer cause it has more than double the product as the anastasia brow wiz?  I was wondering what product I should use next. I'm thinking about the anastasia dipbrow but that seems a bit complicated as i've only used pencils so far.

Eyelashes / Mascara Longer on Right Eye and Shorter on Left
Hi BT Ladies,     I just tried the Loreal Voluminous Butterfly mascara this morning, and did my right eye first. To my delight it gave me super long, separated lashes with amazing curl. I was beyond ecstatic. My go-to mascara was MUFE Smoky Extravagant, but this worked even better than MUFE, and is a lot cheaper...so I was sooo happy...   Then I did my left eye.    I have no idea what happened? The left eye lashes turned out extremely wimpy, short, and clumpy, with no curl, and was just overall a horrible mess. It looked like my left and right eyelashes belonged on two different people. They just did not match what-so-ever.   I've had this happen with other mascaras, where my left eyelashes turn out not as nice as the right, but never such an extreme difference as today with the Loreal Butterfly mascara.    So a few questions for you lovely ladies:    1. Have you had experiences where you lashes were uneven either with or without mascara? (in terms of length, volume, curl, etc). 2. What mascaras tend to give more uneven results / what was the shape of the brush? (I find that the uneven lashes issue happens the most with asymmetrical brushes) 3. What do you think is the cause of this?  4. Any tips or tricks on how to make your lashes look even on both sides?    Any feedback would be greatly appreciated!    (FYI, I'm right handed. Also, when I do my left eyelashes, I still use my right hand, but twist my wrist the other way, so that the tip of the mascara wand is facing towards the inner corner of my left eye).

Kate Somerville True Lash dupe?
I've been using True Lash for a while now (it was an impulse buy, and now I'm completely hooked), which is easily the best eye makeup remover I've found.    http://www.sephora.com/product/productDetail.jsp?k eyword=KATE%20SOMERVILLE%20True%20Lash%E2%84%A2%20 ...   The problem is that it's so expensive and a tube doesn't last long at all. It's pretty hard to justify as a must-have item. So I'm looking to replace it with something similar.   I love the cream formula - I've found that oil removers leave me scrubbing which easily irritates my eyes and the lid area. The cream is so smooth and just glides on easily (plus it takes off everything).    I really don't care about the True Lash claims to promote lash growth. I don't really think it works (and that isn't why I buy it). I'm pretty happy with my lashes already.   I was looking at the Fresh Soy Conditioning Remover   http://www.sephora.com/soy-conditioning-eye-makeup -remover-P384779?skuId=1585991   Clinique Take the Day Off Cleansing Balm   http://www.sephora.com/take-the-day-off-cleansing- balm-P126301?skuId=886267   Benefit They're Real! Remover   http://www.sephora.com/product/productDetail.jsp?k eyword=they%27re%20real%20remover&skuId=1626761&co ...   and the Naturally Gentle Remover   http://www.sephora.com/naturally-gentle-eye-makeup -remover-P122675?skuId=590927   I'm leaning towards the Fresh Soy Conditioning, but I'm open to other thoughts and suggestions!

Winged Liner Help
Every time I do liquid liner or gel liner and I do a wing, when I open my eye the wing gets cut off and it looks weird and it annoys me. I don't know if it has to do with the shape of my eye or how i'm doing the wing but how can I prevent this from happening so the wing doesn't get cut off and so i can actually see it?

Benefit vs. Maybelline
Does this look familiar to anyone? I found a post about this on INMYKIT on facebook.      Benefit claims that the They're Real Push Up Liner is the first ever lash hugging gel eyeliner in a pen. However, that Maybelline pen gel eyeliner was released in  2013 . It's only available in Asian countries, I think. I'm not sure whether Benefit is claiming to be the first  lash hugging gel eyeliner pen, or just the first gel eyeliner pen in general. What do you think? Did Benefit copy Maybelline?

Coming Soon: UD Perversion Mascara
Was just browsing Refinery29 and came across this new mascara from Urban Decay, inspired by its ultra black Perversion liners.   The article says they spent a long time getting the formula right - not too wet and not to dry. It claims to be clump free, and the wand has bristles that are arranged in a spiral pattern to assure lashes are separated.   UD's website has it listed as being released on July 13th. Wonder if Sephora will be getting this (and releasing it early to Rouge's!?)...

Gel Liners: On the cheap or Luxury all the way?
What kind of gel liners do you prefer?  Since I've started using them, I find that the cheaper, the better.  They dry out so quickly with me that it makes no sense for me to spend so much on them.  I buy either Rimmel or Maybelline.  Wet and Wild when I can find it.  But I have noticed that Bobbi Brown and others are coming up with gel liners too.  Which do you prefer?  I've actually thought about buying one or two to see how they compare but for $2-3, I won't be so angry when it dries out after a couple of months.  Do the more expensive ones have a longer shelf life, do you think?

Okay I know Naked 3 just came out and since 1 was golden-brown neutrals, 2 was taupe neutrals and 3 is absolutely gorgeous pink/peachy neutrals, I got thinking, what will naked 4 be?   I'm honestly hoping for greenish, mossy, earth toned neutrals, I think they would be so pretty for any eye colour but especially hazel/brown and green eyes.  Plus how fun would it be to work with really rich earthy colours?   This is just me thinking out loud, tell me what you think Naked 4 should be!

Need product suggestions and advice for waterlining sensitive eyes
I love the look of liner on my inner waterline, but have trouble due to sensitivity, contact lenses, and allergies. I cant use liquid or powdery formulas due to the irritation. Any tips on getting the look to stay around without hurting my eyes?   Also, I need some product suggestions. For years i used the bareminerals round the clock liners with great results but they're discontinued and their new liner formula disappears from my waterline after about 20 seconds. I've also tried urban decay, clinique, bobby brown, smashbox, tarte, and chanel liners with no success. Does anyone else have some good product suggestions so I don't have to start hoarding more round the clock liners off ebay?
