Q. MJ Lovemarc Lip Gel vs New Nude Sheer Lip Gel
Is there any difference between the two besides the color of the tube?  I currently have the Lovemarc in "Role Play" and was curious if the New Nude Sheer in "Role Play" is exactly the same or a more sheer version of the same color?  Thanks!!

Q. Makeover Essentials Cosmetics Makeup Line
I was at work today and a lady came in selling make up sets at reduced prices or she claims. The sales lady said that this product is sold at SEPHORA so I went to the store and asked an employee and was told that they have never heard of this make-up line. She said it was going to hit Macy's, Dillards, and Ulta next week. She was selling items priced at $39.99, the "eyes have it" shadow kit, priced at $25.99, and the "shimmer bronzer brush", priced at $29.99, for $20 dollars and so I bought one but now I am skeptical about it. They lead me to believe that it's a mineral based makeup like Bare Minerals. The colors are very pigmented. Has anyone else bought this stuff?

Q. How clean are YOUR brushes?
How often do you beauties clean your makeup brushes? This includes spot cleaning and deep cleaning. And what products do you use?   For the past two months, I've really kept up with spot cleaning my brushes after EVERY use... at least with my face brushes and my angled eye liner brush that I use for gel liner. Eye shadow brushes get spot cleaned when I feel like I've mixed way too many random colors together. I spot clean using MAC's Brush Cleanser sprayed on a wash towel.   My goal was to deep clean once a week with baby shampoo... but I've been laggin' lately   Let me know what you do!

Q. Eyelash Curler Comparison
The best eyelash curlers really depends on people's eye shape and preference. After terrible experience with a couple of the hyped/popular curlers, I decided to do a comparison between the ones Sephora carries: Shiseido, Lancome, Tarte, Sephora and Tweezerman. Hopefully it will be of help to you, too.   Tarte, 1 replacement pad+mascara : smaller and rounder than other 4 curlers and have the squishy-est pad. Parts a bit loose and the middle comes together first so if you don’t squeeze firmly, it looks like ><. Tarte (left) and Shiseido (right). You can see tarte is smaller and rounder.   Sephora, 2 replacement pad : Have the firmest pad of all 5 curlers. Comparable to Shiseido, both a tiny bit flatter than other curlers. When I use Shiseido and Sephora, the middle part press against my eyes first, when using Lancome, the whole side+middle press against my eyes at same time.   Shiseido, 1 replacement pad: Medium/normal firm pad, comes together evenly. It have a unique dip on the corners, unlike any other curlers. Due to vertical curve of the curler and dip, it actually irritates my eyes and it water every time I use the curler. =/ Shiseido (left) and Lancome (right). You can see the dip in Shiseido while Lancome and other curlers don't have the dip.   Lancome, 1 replacement pad : similar to Tweezerman, both very slightly rounder than Shiseido and Sephora, medium firm pad.     Tweezerman ProCurl curler, 3 replacement pad : very nice weight, feels durable. 3 replacement pad. Curls all my lashes at once. Couldn’t tell the difference between this and Lancome, except this have a nice weight and feels sturdy (none of the parts feel loose). It also says free sharpening and life time warranty (why would you sharpen your curler?)   All in all, if you've got smaller or rounder eyes, go for Tarte. If your eyes are deeper set, Shiseido curler's dip corner will help you get the corner lashes. If you like a firm pad (pro: no sharp kinks/angle. con: require more force to squeeze for a good curl), go for Sephora. Tweezerman feels nicer in my hand than Lancome, but honestly my eyes don't feel a difference when I was curling. I ended up getting the Tweezerman cuz it's got the most replacement pad, and Sephora one cuz it's sturdy and I tend to be heavy handed but don't want to crinkle/cut off my lashes.   Happy curler shopping!

Q. Good mascara for thin, short eyelashes?
So my eyelashes are really thin, and i'd say they're short.Even using an eyelash curler they arent that amazing. The mascaras ive tried are Maybelline mega plush, Dior iconic overcurl ( everyone always suggests this and I liked it but it didnt make them as long as I hoped :-( ) . I liked the Dior one but i'm hoping to find something better that will make my eyelashes look thicker + longer. I dont know how some people get their eyelashes so long and thick looking lol.
