Urban Decay Naked Smoky Palette
  So a few hours ago Trendmood posted on their page a look at the new UD Naked Smoky palette.  I haven't seen a picture of what the packaging looks like but I'm guessing it'll be the same design as N2 and N3 in a gunmetal color. This will be released on July 8th on the UD website. Is anyone  else interested in this palette? I think I may pick it up to round out my Naked palette collection. Radar, Armor, and Black Market are repromotes from the Vice 1 and 2 palettes. All the other shades are new. They look very similar to current UD shades so hopefully when comparison swatches are released they are significantly different.

I actually like how the palette is broken up into thirds by finish. 4 mattes?  Compared to the other Nakeds that each had 2, it's a big improvement. see post

Eyebrow switch-up?
My hair is naturally dark brown. Therefore, my eyebrows are a a darker brown too. I'm getting my hair died a pastel-y lilac and was wondering if I should buy a lighter shade of brow pencil  and if that'll cover up my dark eyebrow hairs? Thanks in advance!

Rebuying most of my makeup
So as most of ya'll know I live in Louisiana. Where mother nature has been on a tear as of late. Over the weekend the creek that my house backs up to finally went over its banks. Which left one place to go. My house. Thanks to great friends, great insurance, and great thinking, most of my stuff managed to escape the worst of the damage. But alot of my makeup didn't. My foils and minis are ruined for the most part. Alot of my full size was in a higher place, but not all. So at this point I am going to have to start rebuying. I have tended ( as ya'll can tell from my posts and reviews ) stick to the same stuff. Everything that I have used has been my HG. But maybe i need to step outside of my box. Try new things. So i turn to my fellow BTers who always have great product recs for the girls that are just now starting out with makeup. So i wanted to get some new ideas from ya'll of new things to try. Just across the board. I generally stuck to MAC foundation, overcurl Dior mascara, Naked eye shadow, 24/7 and stila eye liners, orgasam blush, the porefessional primer, and tarte setting powder. I figure i may try and turn a negative into something positive. At least in this small way!

Neon Coral-Pink lipstick - help me find this!
So I'm really trying to find this colour lipstick.     It's like a neon pinky coral, but it has a definite yellow tinge to it, and it's lighter than your regular coral shades. It's almost like a pink and yellow highlighter got it on and had a baby.    Here's a pic of what I'm aiming for:   This colour, but for lips!   I'd prefer for it NOT to be a drugstore brand.

Nail Polish Challenge!
In the spirit of all the other wonderful challenges on BT right now, I'm starting up a nail polish challenge for us.  I have a ridiculous stash and I need to show my polish some love.   With nail polish, once a day would be absurd (of course), so let's try and show off a new look and polish once a week.  I'm personally going with manicures only, but if you'd rather do pedicures or even both go for it!   I'm eager to see your collections and meet other polish junkies.  It's past time for me to commit to using my stash!   Past: Spoiler (Highlight to read) Week 1 - No Theme (ends 1/31/15): Nicole by OPI Gumdrops in Cinna-Man of My Dreams Week 2 (2/1-2/7) - Winter's Last Hurrah: Julep in Fina, Ciate in Snow Fall Week 3 (2/8-2/14) - Valentine's/Anti-Valentine's: Formula X in Starfish, accent Julep in Yuki Week 4 (2/15-2/21) - Mardi Gras and/or Chinese New Year: CoverGirl Outlast Stay Brilliant in Lemon Drop, Julep in Beverly, Wet & Wild Fast Dry in SaGreena the Teenage Witch Week 5 (2/22-2/28) - Textures:  Julep in Lissa, Sally Hansen Xtreme Wear in Sea-ing Stars, unknown shell pieces Week 6 (3/1-3/7) - International Women's Day: LOOK 1 Julep in Bernadette (Black Onyx for February) and Claudia (Peridot for August) LOOK 2 Zoya in India Week 7 (3/8-3/14) - Numbers and/or Sweets for Pi Day!

KVD Chrysallis Palette price match
So, I stopped into one of my local SiJCPs today and the Chrysallis palette was on sale for $20.  But they were sold out.  They said if any more came into the store, they would also be priced at $20 because they are being discontinued.    I called the rouge line and was told they could not price match the item and that it would continue to be sold at the $46 price online.  This really aggravates me. I'm so sick of the whole two seperate companies thing.  Technically couldn't I just buy it online, take it into the SiJCP, return it for $46 and re-buy it for $20?  So what's the point?     End rant.

Is UD creep good for setting black eyeliner?
So I have blackout from UD in my Naked2 palette, and it is one of my HG products because it is amazing at setting liner. I use it on any eyeliner that I use to tight line (usually Maybelline's gel eyeliner), and it will not smudge all day. I'm going to college in the fall, so I need something that will set my liner to make it last all day, but I do not want to bring my Naked2 palette with me to school, and I don't want to buy the single because I figured that since the eye shadows in the naked palettes are full sized, I might as well get a palette due to the bargain. I've been eye the original Naked palette for awhile, and I was wondering if Creep is good for setting black liner that is used to tight line. I know it's shimmery and not matte like blackout, as well as not being as dark, but I'm fine with that as long as it will keep my liner from smudging all day.

Gift ideas- sending to India
Hi beauties, I'm planning on sending purses for my sister in laws in India. I wanted to pack them with some fun makeup as well! They all have kids and range from ages 30-50. I was thinking of adding drugstore makeup- particularly lipstick and mascara and then the fresh sugar mini and MAYBE some eyeshadows (wish Urban decay Ammo or pulp fiction was still on sale!).    I'd love some suggestions for the lipsticks! I don't have any drugstore lipsticks and am sure they've come a long way! I think for mascara I'm going to go with the maybelline's in the teal package, but not 100% sure. I'd love to hear any ideas you might have on anything all the way from the handbag to any makeup product!   I'm also limited on time So i need to be able to buy stuff at the store or ship from somewhere that isn't too slow. TIA!

Oxidization and Undertones
I have pretty neutral undertones. In the winter I normally wear foundation and powder with a pink/red undertone, and in the summer I wear foundation with a beige/yellow undertone.   The stuff I'm using right now is oxidizing badly. By noon, even utilizing a primer and loads of blot paper, I'm orange. This stuff has a beige undertone.   In thinking back, I've had this problem before. I'm pretty sure it has always been with my "summer" colour. It could just be that I'm more oily in the summer, but I'm thinking the undertone of the makeup might play a roll in this.   Does anyone who uses a neutral or pink/red undertoned foundation have oxidization troubles? If so, do they turn orange too?   I'm thinking about experimenting, but I've got a stock pile of my summer stuff. I really don't want to pick up something else without some feedback from the community.
