Too Faced Chocolate Bar Palette for $29 for New HSN Customers
New HSN customers can get the Too Faced Chocolate Bar Palette w/ a full-sized Shadow Insurance Primer for $29 with coupon code 20NEWSPRING (and free shipping!). Just bought mine (although I really only wanted the palette)...it might be worth it to have a friend sign up and order it on your behalf since it's a smokin' deal. That's almost 30% off. (Shout out to the Nouveau Cheap blog for posting this!)

Hourglass Ambient Lighting Palette is Back!!
I just received an email from Hourglass that their Ambient Lighting Palette (with incandescent light) is back. Does anyone know if this means it's a permanent part of their collection, or is it LE yet again? What do you think?   I have to say I'm   disappointed it's not a blush trio or an ambient bronzing trio but this is still amazing because it's three shades of ambient lighting powder that I don't own.   EDIT:  refinery29 confirms that this palette is a  permanent part of the Hourglass cosmetics line! Still awaiting confirmation from Hourglass!

What is your favorite Gel or Cream Eyeliner?
I have been using Clinique's Brush on Cream Liner and I love it, it is so easy to use, but sometimes it can be hit or miss on the staying power. What do you guys recommend for one that is long wearing and easy to use?

Has anyone got any subtle looks out of the electric palette?
So I recently purchased Urban Decays Electric palette. The colors are so gorgeous and oh so pigmented! I've been playing a lot with it and end up looking pretty comical at times with some of the rainbow looks I've come up with.  I can't seem to accept wearing less than four shades at a time! Lol! Has anyone got any pictures of multiple color looks that aren't too over the top? Or do I have to accept using two or three shades?

Q. Help me decide!! Diffused Heat or Radiant Magenta?
Okay, so I changed my mind!  I  need an Hourglass blush...  I am only allowing myself to purchase  one however, and I can't make up my mind!   I've narrowed it down to two colors... Diffused Heat and Radiant Magenta.  I originally had my heart set on Diffused Heat, but then I saw swatches of Radiant Magnta -- and it isn't as in-your-face bright pink as I thought!  And now I'm wondering if Diffused Heat would turn orangey on my warm skintone.   I have light-medium skin with yellow undertones (my current foundation of choice is 2Y06 in Sephora's Color IQ).  Which of these two shades would be more suitable for my skintone?

Take the Challenge: Palette Parade version 2.0
My name is Bombshell and I continue to be an eyeshadow addict enthusiast !! However, five weeks ago I began a quest to actually start using my mountains and mountains of palettes and shadows. Along with some awesome ladies who have joined in I have committed to using the same palette 5 days in a row and posting the results at the end of five days. Those with single shadows are welcome to join in as well!  If you are interested in the original rules & lists posted they can be found in off topic, (take the challenge: palette parade).  the gist of it is make a list, plan to show all your shadows love for extended period of time (5days), if you hate it first day move on. I am also planning to add weeks of singles by brand (Stila week, UD week, Nars week).  I think instead of posting and editing lists it would be easier to report what we plan to use at the beginning of the week and the report the results at the end. We meet here at the end of the week to discuss what we wore for the week, how it worked for us and most importantly to share pictures and advice! Anyone can join as we all started at different times and have different numbers of palettes, and will finish at different times. I am looking at 38 (?) more weeks if I don't buy one more palette! Xoxo I look forward to more fun parading with all you girls!

What lipgloss surprised you and is now your holy grail?
I'm addicted to Beso by Urban Decay's Naked line! I didn't think I would like it but I got another during the sale even though my first isn't even half way gone. It keeps my lips soft and moisturized...which is a hard thing to do with my dry, chapped lips. I like it more than Fresh's line. I would love to hear what you all can't live without??!!

Makeup and working out
I've seen women who can wear a full face of make up while working out - foundation, eyeliner, everything! I wouldn't wear any myself, because I frankly sweat like a pig and looking pretty/decent/presentable/human is probably the last thing on my mind, but I do marvel the ladies who can look so put together even when they're running or doing reps.   I'm really curious how their makeup stays put. I can barely get my eyeliner to stay even when I'm not exercising and not end up with raccoon eyes! :/ (I'm a totally new makeup noob, btw....)   Any workout goddesses want to share their secrets?

Koh Gen Do mailed samples to me!
I have heard many great things about the KGD foundations.  The only drawback is that none of the Sephora locations near me (Canada) carry this brand.  I didn't want to purchase without testing for compatibility, shade, etc.  So I wrote to KGD and they were nice enough to mail some samples of their Moisture Foundation, Aqua Foundation, (in 5 shades) and some skin care samples to address my dry, acne prone skin.  They delivered beyond my expectations.  I was only looking to find my foundation shade.  But ended up receiving a bunch of samples to help with my skin issues as well.  I'm truly happy with all the skin care samples I get to try out tonight.   I may have to break my no-buy commitment

UD naked foundation hard to take off.
I've used UD naked foundation for over a year now, but I feel it is very hard to take off. I have to wipe my face off before my shower, then I wash my face in the shower and wipe my face off again. I feel like it will lever come off! Is there any short cuts?

Transfer free and/or natural lip product !
    The only lip products I use and have used are  the Dior Addict lip glow and Benetint..   I like them, but I would love to try new ones.. just that I don't know where to begin.. I don't even know which type (lipgloss, plump, balm, stick etc) is what I'm looking for    I have fair-light yellow toned skin (wear Dior nude foundation in 011),  don't wear alot of makeup and focus on the complexion.. simple eyeliner and mascara.  one of the reasons why I didn't wear lip products was because I didn't want to look "awkward" if that makes sense..  I even had a few Armani sheer lipsticks that I never wore.. (orange color looked very awkward on me)    could I please get some recommendations on something that looks natural?  I've heard about transfer free lip products also and is curious

Going to Tokyo this summer! Makeup/general suggestions please!
I am making a short trip to Tokyo this summer. While a lot of it will be sight seeing, I most definitely will curve out time for shopping. So I just want to hear everyone's suggestions on things worth picking up!   I am am not looking for foundations, concealors or powder (unless it's absolutely amazing, contemplating on Cle de peau concealor which is cheaper there). No eyeshadows either, maybe a few mascaras, liquid eyeliners, lip products and as many blushes/cheek products as I see fit and most certainly brushes. (I want to get some hakuhodo or chikuhodo, but any other suggestions are totally welcome) I would prefer something that's more accessible.   I recall reading about some products that aren't sold outside of Japan (makeup), and I remember making a note to myself that I should get them when I go but I can't seem to remember. Anyone?   So far (just so we don't duplicate) I have my eyes on -Kate mascara base -Kate cream blush (that comes in a jar) -Jill Stuart blush (just because it's so pretty)  -Majorica majorca mascar   Lastly any tips on good stores, getting around, places to see? Any suggestions are highly appreciated!    Last lastly, any other non-makeup related must buys?    Thanks tons!

All Time Favorite Makeup Brand
If you could choose only 1 brand overall to use or for each individual brand for eyes, lip products, etc... what would you choose?   For me, I would have to pick Urban Decay for eyeshadow hands down. Cheek products would definitely be Tarte. I really don't know what I would choose for lipstick and lip gloss because there are so many brands that have beautiful lipstick!   What's your favorite??

Anyone ever accidentally gotten Kat Von D, or other heavy foundation on their Clothes?
I try to be so careful about not getting foundation on my clothes, but I had a major blunder today. Has anyone had success with a product, or cleaning methods, to get foundation out of their clothes? Regular washing did not work. The Lock-It foundation is pretty thick and I dripped/dropped onto my pants, so it's not just a smudge. My pants are chocolate brown so bleach would stain. I'm just hoping I'm not the only one....
