Looks like they won't make this happen Spoiler (Highlight to read) Price breakdown for those interested Spoiler (Highlight to read) Saw this on Facebook a while back and thought I'd add it here.   A 12 color Viseart Eyeshadow Palette is $80 USD (before pro discount). Each eyeshadow pan is 2 grams and valued at approx. $6 ($3.00 per gram).   MAC has reduced the price of their single eyeshadows refills from $10 USD to $6 USD each. So 12 colors at the new reduced price would be $72 USD (before pro discount). Add the $8 USD empty palette to store them and we're back to $80 USD.   EXCEPT: Each MAC eyeshadow pan is only 1.3 grams ($4.62 per gram). You're getting only 15.6 grams of product, as opposed to the 24 grams of eyeshadow in the Viseart palette. That's a loss of over 8 grams of product.   FINAL ANALYSIS: It would cost $119 USD for MAC to duplicate the Viseart palette (24 grams of MAC eyeshadow at $4.62 per gram and $8 for the palette).

Huda 3D Highlighter Swatches
Oh my goodness, you guys!   We were able to snag these palettes to play with so I absolutely had to share some swatches with you! The Huda 3D Highlighter Palette comes in two shades: Golden Sands and Pink Sands. As you can see, there are a variety of shades and the brand provides specific instructions for applying to get a 3D, lit highlight look.  Both palettes are beautiful, buttery and ultra pigmented. I will also note that this palette can be played down but will make you shine like the sun if you follow the instructions on the packaging. I would recommend Pink Sands (top 4) for lighter skintones and Golden Sands (bottom 4) for medium to deeper skintones. Each palette has a creamy base color (Capri in Pink Sands, Fiji in Golden Sands) that is made with shea butter. The base shades are gorgeous, creamy and give a glow that could be worn alone (see below). If you want to amp it up, you apply the highlight shade (Santorini or Seychelles) to bring light to your cheekbones, cupid's bow, etc. Next you add dimension with the deeper shade under your cheekbone highlight. Finally, you finish with the pinky shade (Ibiza or Zanibar) between the two for a blended, 3D look. In my opinion, this is a highlighter version of contour blush and highlight and I love that!   I didn't go a great job at capturing the dimension but I was BEAMING   What new launches are you looking forward to? Let us know!

Best waterproof mascara?
I've had my fair share of drugstore and high end mascaras, but I have found that they all end up drying out or performing lesser and lesser the more I use, so I tend to stick to drugstore mascaras. Anyone else experience that? It's almost like I get great results the first or second time I use a mascara and then after that it becomes harder and harder to reach the same result. That shouldn't happen with a mascara I'm spending upwards of $20 on.. Anyway, I'm in the market for a waterproof mascara because that's the only way my lashes will hold a curl. I've tried Benefit they're real, Peter Thomas Roth Lashes to die for, Blinc, Tarte lights camera action, Urban Decay perversion, Lancome high definition, Bobbi Brown smokey eye.. As for drugstore I find L'oreal and Maybelline work best for me. I kinda just pick one up and test it so I have about 3 I'm rotating through right now. Any suggestions?

Limited edition items of the past
Hi ladies! (and some gents )   So recently I developed an obsession with getting my hands on the LE MAC Archie's Girls collection. I finally got all the items I wanted from Ebay, so I wanted to share! My last two looks on the What Are You Wearing Today thread used the blush in the picture. How cute is the packaging? It brings back teenage nostalgia for me. I'm sad I missed out on it when it was released, but I just wasn't that into makeup at the time and didn't know of its existence.     Anyway, this got me thinking...what item or items, now discontinued or hard to find, have you been obsessed with getting your hands on? I know for some people, it's Meteorites, and I also saw a LE Tom Ford blush in the hauls thread!   Feel free to share pictures if you have them

What is your favorite indie brand(s)?
Hey ladies and gents!   I'm always on the hunt for new brands to explore.   I love supporting smaller companies that are female and/or minority owned. (the ones you share don't have to be)   What are your favorite indie brands?  Makeup, beauty, body care, clothes etc?     I've loved oyin handmade for YEARS since they started in 1999/2000 or so.  They have really grown and are now available in target stores in some areas.   I also love bake shop butters (the owner is so sweet) she just got married so her shop is closed for now, but her body butters are WONDERFUL and smell so good.   Toni Daley makes some AMAZING jewelry!  I have some of her earrings and any time I wear them someone always asks me where I got them.   Rachel Stewart also make some incredible pins and earrings.

Stumbling across rather late, but I wanted to share in the BPAL love.   Too many of their scents work well on my skin - I'm getting better, but still trying to figure ... see post

Asian mascaras tested!! TIPS FOR STRAIGHT ASIAN LASHES: PART 2
Since I got more views than I expected on my first post I decided to make a follow up with Asian mascaras I hauled from my Asia trip! I have stick-straight Asian lashes that get weighed down by almost every formula, so mascara wasn't something I wore often at all. UNTIL NOW!   Here's the first thread with my experience with Western brands:  http://community.sephora.com/t5/Makeup/TIPS-FOR-STRAIGHT-ASIAN-LASHES/m-p/2720734#M129691   I did a ton of research before my trip so I could grab all the holy grail mascaras on the Asian part of the Internet, and I'd like to share my feedback so that some of you straight lash gals don't have to waste your money. For the record, they're all amazing and  each one holds a curl!! This was my biggest factor.  For comparison, my Shu Uemura petal lash mascara was my old favourite because it holds my curl all day and doesn't smudge. The tradeoff though was that it looked too natural and gave me almost no volume. A close second is the benefit they're real.     In no order whatsoever:   1. Fairy Drops Platinum Waterproof Mascara This was probably  the most raved about in my research. I got it at Sasa in Hong Kong (like an Asian Sephora beauty haven) for about $20 CAD and it is  my new favourite!! It does everything it says: curls your lashes and gives them volume. It even added length. My lashes look absolutely fantastic with this mascara and I wear mascara every day now when I never did before. Just to further explain how much this product is worth, my lashes literally are not visible with no mascara on them. I completely gave up on my lashes, eternally convinced they would never look good. But now I have this!! The wand is shaped really weird and looks like three balls put together but this stuff does the job. I can't say enough good things about this mascara. I only wish I bought 2 more as backups because I have no idea where to get this in Toronto   2. Isehan Kiss Me Heroine Make Long and Curl Mascara   There are a few this brand makes: I chose the one with the pink packaging. The purple packaging one is volume and curl, which for some reason isn't talked about a lot. This mascara is also an Asian favourite and raved about over there so I had to pick it up. It was under $20 CAD and is amazing! Holds my curl all day and adds a lot of length. Not as much volume as the Fairy Drops one but it still makes my lashes look great. Definitely worth the buy. You can get it at some places in a combo with their equally famous liquid eyeliner.   3. Majolica Majorca Lash King This one is like a drugstore mascara, I picked it up when it on sale at Watson's (an Asian drugstore) in Thailand for around $15 CAD. This is also a waterproof formula (they all are) and works pretty well. However, it does smudge after a few hours whereas the other mascaras do not. It holds a curl and makes your lashes look pretty good still, but has more clumping. Not my favourite one out of these 4, and to be honest with my other discoveries I could have done without it.   4. Lancome Virtuose Divine Lasting Cuves & Length This is the only one out of the 4 that isn't waterproof. I couldn't find it at Sephora or Shoppers so I got it at the airport duty free for about $30 CAD. This is very comparable to my Shu Uemura petal lash in terms of curling and how natural it looks. It did nothing for volumizing my lashes, and is only good for a natural day. Despite it not being waterproof, it doesn't smudge much at all and lasts throughout the day. But again, with the first 2 being so great, I could have done without this, too.    I hope these reviews helped you guys pick an Asian mascara! Please comment if you have any others I didn't try out and what you think. Let's end the fight for Asian lashes!!
