YSL gel liners?
    I'm honestly always on a hunt for a better eyeliner. eyeliners that glide on smoother, that stay on longer, and is better value..    I have purchased and used the Bobbi brown's gel liner 2 times, but I'm not crazy about them. They stay on a bit better than Nars cream liners, but still isn't enough.. my undereye area gets very very messy after about 4 hours.    I'm interested in the YSL gel liners, but like all other YSL products, the reviews are "too glowingly positive"  For ex. their stick concealer and touche eclat foundation are nice, but they're not worth 5 star reviews. (at least in my opinion)    Has anyone with eyes that are prone to smudging easily tried he YSL gel liner? (monolid reviewers would be even more helpful)

A Hack for the new Benefit They're Real eyeliner
So I see that a lot of folks are not liking this new eyeliner, mainly because the formula is so dry that it doesn't go on smoothly.  I tried this little trick this morning and it improved things greatly.   The trick is gentle heat.  You could probably just give the pen a little blast with a hairdryer, but mine wasn't handy so this is what I did.   Make sure lid is screwed on nice and tight Place pen tip side down in a mug of hot tap water for about a minute Prep the tip by wiping it clean with a tissue dipped in the hot water and cleaning off any old product Twist and do a couple of test swipes on the back of your hand Ready to go It improves performance quite a bit, as the indirect heat softens the formula just enough.  The downside to it is that it can be a little wasteful, as the heat will push out more product than you probably want.  But I figure it's not as wasteful as having a $25 eyeliner sitting there that's impossible to use AMIRITE?

Can they replicate this eye look?
I've been coming into Sephora a few times asking them to replicate the style of this eye look. I adore the eyeliner colour and how it's applied on the bottom lid. How it's a bit below the waterline and how it ever so slightly bends in the center to make my eye look wider. Each time I came in I honestly didn't know what they were doing. One barely looked at the picture, and the other explained to me that I was looking down in the picture so the eyeliner looked different when I looked straight. Can the style of this be replicated? So it looks like that when I look straight? Or am I just some crazy teenager customer who doesn't know what she's talking about? Should I just give up? Also this was made with bareMinerals READY™ Eyeshadow 4.0 The Rare Find

Easy way to put on EyeLiner
I found a great way to put on eyeliner and curl my eye lashes at the same time. You put your eyeliner on the line of your eye lash curler then do what you normally do and it leaves a very perfect line. Try it and tell me how it goes!

Makeup For Ever -- Wild and Chic eye shadow palette
Well, I went to write a review on this palette, and it's out of stock, so I can't do it. I don't know if this palette will ever come back, but I got 4 words for it: Winner, Winner, Chicken Dinner!   OMG. Gorgeous. It's pretty matte but has great pigmentation. I like that it's really subtle and is just such a pretty accent to my eyes.   So if you see it somewhere, grab it! It is 6 lovely colors!

Anastasia Lash Genius An AMAZING product
So I would like to shed a bit of light on this gem. When I first met my CM Shyam a few months back, he introduced me to the Anastasia Lash Genius Top Coat and I have been wowed by this stuff. It can transform ANY non waterproof mascara into one that is sealed and still looks gorgeous. If you haven't tried it yet you should it's worth the money in my opinion.

Q: for Too Faced Natural @ Night Palette
For those who have this palette, do you find that the colors get muddy looking when blending?  I want the stark contrast of colors but I don't want them all running together like a bad water-color painting gone wrong.  Is there a trick anyone else uses to make this palette stand out for them?

Concealer to correct blue veins, that is not drying or cakey??
I have lighter skin and I want a concealer for blue darkness in the corners of my eyes. Between my eyes and nose. I heard the salmon color is the best for correcting, but I can't seem to find one that's not $40.. which is pretty expensive for a concealer. Any suggestions for a good concealer for correcting blue darkness that is not drying or cakey
