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. If you have any suggestions i'd love to hear .

Q. Best Foundations??
Hello! I am in a busy search for a foundation that doesn't break me out! I recently switched to high end foundations after using about four bottles of my Covergirl 3-in-1 foundation. It started to break me out (which it never did before) I have tried the Nars Sheer Glow foundation, and that made it worse! Do you have any foundations in Sephora that stay on, are for oily skin, and DONT BREAK YOU OUT? Thank you!!

Q. COLLEGE?!
Hello all!   As you can tell from the title I will be on my way to college very soon! This means I will pretty much be on my own money-wise (with only minimal help from parents). I want to be responsible with my money, but I also don't want to give up some of my favorite makeup brands (first world problems am I right?). This applies to skincare too!   Some questions I have: When do I save and when do I splurge? How long do certain products last (meaning how long before I run out?)? How can I get the most out of my products (making them last as long as possible)? What's a healthy budget amount for makeup? Per year, per month? What are the bare minimum products I should use? One of my goals is to not be excessive with the amount of products I have! Just the basics!

Q. Urban Decay will no longer be Cruelty Free
Just thought I'd post this here, since I know a lot of people only buy cruelty free makeup.   According to their facebook page:   "To all our UDers: We have decided to sell Urban Decay products in China. Because of China’s policies, this has upset some of our loyal fans who are also animal rights activists. For complete information, please visit  www.urbandecay.com/chin ainfo . We are listening to all of your feedback and questions, and will try to address every single one of you. We do want to address one FAQ: No, Urban Decay will not test on animals in China. However, the Chinese government may conduct a test using our products before they can be sold there. We absolutely realize that for many of you, it makes no difference who is doing the testing. But, animal rights are still very much important to Urban Decay, and our decision was a thoughtful one. Changes are already happening in China, and we will give our all to help advocate alternative methods."   http://www.urbandecay.com/Urban-Decay-China/Urban- Decay-in-China,default,pg.html

Q. Primer? Serum? Does this ring a bell with anyone?
One night, while I was very sleepy, I read a product description that stated it really helped fill in fine under eye wrinkles. I think it was a primer and chances are it helped with pores as well. I definitely remember the directions said you had to warm it in your palm before you applied it and I can even remember reading in the reviews how important it was to not skip that step. But I can't remember what it was! Does this sound familiar to anyone...please?

Q. Blotchy Bronzer
I use smashbox BB cream, NARS cream compact foundation (lightly not all over) and the Naked Flushed bronzing trio with their winged brush. However when i apply the bronzer it totally makes my skin look so blotchy. Before bronzer my skin tone is even and natural and then with the bronzer it turns out blotchy and when i try to correct the blotchyness it just comes out too dark and cakey. PLEASE HELP!!! Any advice or good products that will stop this from happening? Looking for a really natural look that wont make my skin breakout -- also have been having more breakouts then usual and wondering if its the smashbox bb cream?

Q. Sunless Tanner Application and Brands
As much as I love to tan with the help of some sunscreen and beach rays in the spring I just don't have the time.  I have used two different kinds:  L'Oreal Subliminal Tan 360 Spray (which broke me out into a rash) and Clinique's Self Tanner (which I'm not a huge fan of but am trying to use up)  So here are my two questions.  First, what's the best self tanner out there that is easy to use and doesn't streak.  My second question is I know you apply self tanner to the face, chest, arms, legs, and torso but how do you apply the lotion to your back? Do people simply not put in on their backs? Thanks for all of the input!

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?
