Need help choosing a liquid eyeliner!
So I have been experimenting with liquid eyeliners for a little bit and have been trying some that really haven't been working out for me lately. I first tried Stila Stay All Day Liquid Eyeliner and it was a deep dark black and it went on very nice and glossy (which I like) but the felt tip began to come off in little balls and whenever going over the line it would remove the liner . I have been also using the Kat Von D Tattoo Liner and that is a brush tip which I have found is better than the Stila at application but again has been taking away the liner if you are to go over it a second time. I'm looking for a pen type eyeliner which a semi-glossy finish that doesn't wear off or take away the line when going over it and is good for cateye/winged eyeliner. Has anyone tried the Alexa Chung Eye do Liquid Eyeliner, I heard that was good but I'm not entirely sure.

Eyebrows
I have one eyebrow blonde like really blonde and I have the only one kind of blackish brownish I can't help it I was born this way I know weird lol!. I refuse to die it just because you know how us girls are once we do something permanent we regret it later. My problem is that everytime i try to match the blonde one with the blackish brown one they still never look the same color i try the color brunette and they still do not look the same with filling them in. So if someone can please help I'd appreciate it.

Eyebrow Products Running Out Quickly?
I was wondering what product I should try next because I've used 2 eyebrow pencils:  the anastasia brow wiz which lasted about 3 months for me but it started giving me dry spots on my eyebrows? i thought that wasn't a long period of time especially considering the price so i ended up purchasing the Nars brow perfector. I like the formula better but i've only used it for about a month and it looks like i only have a week to two weeks of product left. I thought it would last longer cause it has more than double the product as the anastasia brow wiz?  I was wondering what product I should use next. I'm thinking about the anastasia dipbrow but that seems a bit complicated as i've only used pencils so far.

Does anyone else dislike the TF Chocolate Bar palette?
I feel like this is a palette that is an all-around favorite for a lot of people (other than a few people that I've seen who complain about the smell). I regret buying it a lot, though. I'm honestly not sure what it is about it, but I can't seem to get it to work for me no matter what I do. The shadows are pretty pigmented, though some of them are useless to me because they're essentially just different shades of slightly sheer white. I just can't seem to make any decent looks with it. Anyone else finding it less than awesome, or have any suggestions for looks?

Too Faced Melted Berry
Does anyone have this? I just bought it from TF's website. But the color of the product itself is absolutely nothing like berry. It was actually closer to melted ruby than it would be a berry. It was also bright, which is unusual for a berry toned color.   So I was wondering if it's like this for everyone, or I just got a weird batch.

Anastasia Beverly Hills Amrezy Palette
So Anastasia just released a new eyeshadow palette in collaboration with an amazing MUA/beauty blogger by the name of Amra Olevic aka "Amrezy" on Instagram. This collaboration took 8 months to create and is Anastasia's very first official partnership with a MUA. It is $29 dollars for 10 shades and this palette can only be purchased at the ABH website and in Ulta stores starting Monday. Some Ulta stores have it already. I am planning on purchasing it so if anyone wants swatches just let me know.

Kate Somerville True Lash dupe?
I've been using True Lash for a while now (it was an impulse buy, and now I'm completely hooked), which is easily the best eye makeup remover I've found.    http://www.sephora.com/product/productDetail.jsp?k eyword=KATE%20SOMERVILLE%20True%20Lash%E2%84%A2%20 ...   The problem is that it's so expensive and a tube doesn't last long at all. It's pretty hard to justify as a must-have item. So I'm looking to replace it with something similar.   I love the cream formula - I've found that oil removers leave me scrubbing which easily irritates my eyes and the lid area. The cream is so smooth and just glides on easily (plus it takes off everything).    I really don't care about the True Lash claims to promote lash growth. I don't really think it works (and that isn't why I buy it). I'm pretty happy with my lashes already.   I was looking at the Fresh Soy Conditioning Remover   http://www.sephora.com/soy-conditioning-eye-makeup -remover-P384779?skuId=1585991   Clinique Take the Day Off Cleansing Balm   http://www.sephora.com/take-the-day-off-cleansing- balm-P126301?skuId=886267   Benefit They're Real! Remover   http://www.sephora.com/product/productDetail.jsp?k eyword=they%27re%20real%20remover&skuId=1626761&co ...   and the Naturally Gentle Remover   http://www.sephora.com/naturally-gentle-eye-makeup -remover-P122675?skuId=590927   I'm leaning towards the Fresh Soy Conditioning, but I'm open to other thoughts and suggestions!

Do you have trouble throwing away make-up?
I keep purchasing new things that catch my attention (or that I've convinced myself I need), but I simply can't get through all of the products I own. I don't have an issue tossing old mascara and liquid liners, but I absolutely hate the thought of tossing any other product before I've used every last bit of it.  I've realized that it's impossible for me to use everything up unless I stop buying make-up altogether.   What unused / unfinished products do you have trouble parting with?  And what do you do about it?  How do you use it up so you can move onto something new and exciting?

Let's talk about matte foundations.
So, for years I've been chasing that youthful glow, but now given the stellar contouring and highlighting products out there, I think I'd like to try some matte finishes with them. You know, velvety. Any recommendations on what to try?   Oh…adding…my skin runs a bit dry and is fair with some freckles. Generous coverage would be a plus.

Mark Jacobs kiss pops.... Thoughts?
I got the kiss pop I ordered in the mail today... Definitely not what I was expecting.    On first looks, the packaging is super cute and feels very high quality.    I ordered crush, which was described as a tangerine red, and all I'm seeing is tangerine. I'm very pale, and this comes out as a true orange on me in natural light. But mostly, this is far from moisturizing, in my opinion. It nearly crumbled when I applied it, and already my lips feel dry. I'll wear it around the apartment tonight, but I'm not so sure this will be staying.    what are everyone else's thoughts on these?

Guerlain Meteorite + talc
So tomorrow, I was going to buy Lingerie de Peau & try the Meteorite in stores to see if I like them enough to buy them. BUT, I think I took for granted that because this is such a high end product, it did not contain talc. But it does! I am shocked. I'm not paying 60+$ for some pretty pearls made of talc.    Is this just me or what? I never had problem with talk, and I wouldn't mind it too much if it was a 25$ powder, but for the price I'm paying, it better be talc free. Is is just me or if sometimes, luxury brands are a little behind in terms of ingredients and all?   What are your thoughts?
