Has anyone tried or swatched this palette?
The Smashbox Cherry Smoke palette?    It looks really pretty but I can't seem to find any swatches online.    http://www.sephora.com/cherry-smoke-photo-op-eye-s hadow-palette-P387264

PRODUCTS YOU REGRET BUYING
Hey Beauties ! I was just here thinking and browsing the Sephora site along with my collection and it made me think about some stuff that just wasn't worth all the hype or wasn't all that . Most recently for me it has been the Benefit There Real Push up liner, it just wasn't a good consistency in my opinion and i totally could have done without it but anyway i thought i would start the discussion of what products have you purchased that wasn't worth the hype or you regret getting

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?

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.

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?

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?

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.

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.

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?

Roxy Boxy TSB
Once I get the box back I'll pick out some items and donate the remaining items to 'The River' (a local organization that takes and redistributes new and used makeup/beauty items to women in need). I've given beauty products to this organization before and they're really good.   * Please make sure every item is in a plastic ziplock bag to prevent spills.   Donts’s ■ DON'T keep the box for more than two days. Keep it moving! If you are traveling or a special circumstance comes up, we can work to rearrange things. (ALSO YOU MUST INCLUDE A TRACKING NUMBER it makes it more fun anticipating your turn) ■ DON'T put unsanitary items of any sort into the TSB. We want to have fun and get gorgeous, not sickly ■ DON'T put any drugstore items into the TSB. ■ No reserve items in the box for others, and don’t ask to have any items reserved for you. This is unfair to others participating. ■ DON'T swatch items from the box. This is a hygienic precaution that we must take, as a lot of people will be handling these items. ■ DON'T take more than what you put in. Please trade at or above each item’s retail value.   Do’s ♥ Please contribute high-end beauty products only. No drugstore items. If you have questions or you are unsure of an item, ask! ♥ Unused, swatched or lightly used products are perfectly acceptable. Well-loved items are not (unless explicitly requested by the next person or there has been a posted picture and someone requested that item). Again, if you’re unsure, ask! ♥ Swatched/used items must be labeled as such. ♥ All opened items must be cleaned/sanitized prior to their addition to the box. ♥ Send your address to the person above you in a PM. ♥ Package things carefully! Try to leave the TSB in better condition than you found it  ♥ Please seal any items that could leak/spill/make a mess accordingly. ♥ Most importantly, share your experience! Please post a photo and a description of the box, what you took, and what you contributed.   Allowed: ☆High-end, clean makeup/skincare items (including makeup bags, brushes, etc. If you have questions, refer to other TSB threads or just ask!) ☆Fragrance (be sure to package bottles properly!) ☆Nail polish (again, be careful!)   Not allowed: ☆Pre-made samples ☆ NO used/swatched lip wands (the kind you dunk the wand in or things like stila lipglaze) ☆Heavily used items ☆ Drugstore items ☆Used items that haven’t been cleaned/sanitized ☆Questionable items (always ask if you have doubts!)   If you cannot take photos, Do Not Sign Up, please *******PUT BETTER OR EQUAL PRICED ITEMS IN FOR WHAT YOU TAKE OUT TO KEEP UP THE INTEGRITY OF THE BOX*********   Final Verdict on Mascara- A lot of the GWP mascaras are not sealed. It is ok to include these mascaras in the box ONLY IF THEY ARE UNUSED. Please be honest (it's a matter of health!). Also, please be aware that some of the mascaras may be dried out upon opening them. Only open them if you selected them as your item. Please be honest when it comes to this.   Also, please pick up a large priority box at the post office prior to receiving the box. This is so we can streamline things (get the box to everyone faster in case the box breaks or there's a spill).   -send your address to the person above you   -post a picture and text what you are taking and what you put in BEFORE you send the box on.   roxystar4 -------> 9405509699937585873456 1. bombshell30  -------> 91149011898666880867309 2. ghkim -------> 9405903699300192324806 3.
