For around the same price, I read the color pop have a creme base a little bit, and I tried a creme eyeshadow from avon once, and didn't like the texture. Are there any loose powder ones for around the same price? I really know almost nothing about makeup and really want to get started by accenting my blue grey eyes.
Hi! I am 28 years old and have always had dark circles under my eyes, so needless to say I have quite of collection of concealers and powders. Recently I have developed fine lines under my eyes that only seem to be visible when I put my concealer on, and no matter what I do the makeup always settle into the lines! I feel like I have tried so many types of concealer, cover-up, etc. and I have also tried setting the makeup with powder, which only seems to make the area dryer and the makeup more visible. Please help!
I'd love to see the beautiful palettes you all are making. Here's my first one, I'm sure I'll create more if the shadows wear well. L=>R filthy rich, 24k stilettos, famous flirt, it crowd, prenup, room service.
I wear makeup pretty much everyday of the week but my eye makeup game is pretty weak. I havent worn false lashes in awhile (2 yrs~) i actually have a couple of unopened boxes of lashes and I actually tried them on but the ones I have are the full length/volume kind and they look ridiculous with the minimal eye makeup I'm usually in. Id appreciate any help for natural looking falsies that would go with an almost bare face. And Ive never had extensions and although they look super natural, I don't really know much about the maintenance..yay or nay? help!
I have very long stick straight eyelashes that lose their curl immediately after I apply mascara after curling them. Also my eyes are so wide that I can't get all my lashes at once. Any recommendations for a good curler? Also my eyelashes are clear, so the mascara I use needs to be as light as possible.
Hi, lovelies! I'm going to Europe for three weeks and I have no clue on what eye makeup I should pack and how I should pack it. I have these palettes: Urban Decay: Naked Basics, Naked 1 and Naked 2 Electric Vice 3 Vice LTD Pulp Fiction Glinda Smoked Too Faced: Natural Eyes Chocolate Bar I also have a Z palette with some Urban Decay singles.
My eyelashes are VERY straight and thin. Do any of you know of a mascara that can thicken them and keep them curled? They always go flat after a few seconds! I've only ever been able to use CoverGirl's LashBlast Waterproof mascara and want to try something else.
I've gotten to the point where I hardly wear eyeliner anymore, because it seems to just keep smudging onto my contacts. Which, in turn, blinds me, for all intents and purposes. It's gotten quite frustrating and I was just wondering if anyone else has this problem? I primarily use UD's 24/7 Glide-On Eye Pencil, but I've tried other pencils and have had the same problem. It's hit or miss, doesn't happen every single time.. But too often to be a fluke. I'm not an eye-rubber at all (due to a debilitating fear of eyeball germies), so that's not the problem. Sometimes it'll happen minutes after I apply liner and sometimes it'll happen after a few hours. I'm not a fan of liquid or gel liners, but if that's what it takes, I might consider making the switch. But I'm afraid to invest in new eyeliner products, only to suffer the same fate.
I have started cleaning my mascara wands using a makeup brush spray cleanser. I started doing this to keep the wand nice and free from clumps. Does this extend the mascara/help keep bacteria from forming in the tube?
Hi all! Just recently I've had issues with my waterline eyeliner creating smudges and black marks on my contact lenses, and/or irritating my eyes (but mainly the first two). The brands that have caused these contact lens issues are (in addition with some other problems): Stila Smudge Stick Waterproof Eye Liner Urban Decay 24/7 (lasted only about two hours) Marc Jacobs Highliner (lasted only about four hours) NARS Larger Than Life (does not even apply to my waterline anymore) I was curious if any of the contact lens wearers have any suggestions for a long-lasting, easy to apply, and non-irritating / non-smudging. I would appreciate any suggestions Thank you!
I feel like now there are so many different mascaras that sometimes/most of the time I just don't wear one. Right now my combination to get them looking extra sassy is: Dior Diorshow Maximizer Lash Plumping Serum Benefit They're Real Mascara Make Up Forever Smoky Extravagant Mascara This combo makes my lashes look like falsies!! Share your favorite mascara/mascara combos!! I'd like to try some out

Hi there! Does anyone know a good dupe for the Laura Mercier caviar stick in Sugar Frost? I'm obsessed with the color/formula but I've already gone through 2 of them and I'd love to see if I could find a similar color that's a little less pricey. Thank you for your suggestions!
Any advice on the best long wearing pencil eyeliner? I've tried so many!! I've tried Urban Decay, Makeup Forever, Chanel, Nars and they all smudge under my eyes. I'd say the best that I tried was Nars,but just looking for something better. Thanks in advance!!
So I am looking for a good hypoallergenic eyeshadow palette from a brand other than Clinique. My eyes get very itchy whenever i put eyeshadow on them. I have tried elf, urban decay, and even bare minerals all with bad results. Any suggestions? Thanks, Sarah
I have dark blueish under eye circles (thanks genetics) and have been searching for a color corrector in a salmon hue. I have run through the drug store in my quest and decided to try the high end. This has been a hit and miss search and I am becoming increasingly frustrated. Most of the products that tout themselves as a "color corrector" on Sephora are sparkly pink or yellow and sheer coverage. I don't want to have to build it up to get coverage, cause too much product will just fail in the long run. I am a neutral fair complexion. Fairly Light in Bare Minerals foundation.
My eyelashes are straight. I've tried Revlon and Tweezerman eyelash curlers. Mascaras I have tried: Benefit They're Real, Maybelline Great Lash, Lancôme Hypnose, and Maybelline Miss Manga. After using the above curlers and mascara's my eyelashes become straight a few hours later. Any rec's for an eyelash curler? Mascara that will hold a curl? Thanks!
