Can we just talk about how confusing this product is to me?

I'm always drawn to staring at it, but it makes no sense to me as a product! Some of the colors you can't use on your lips, some you can't use on your eyes (according to the warning on the back)... I saw a girl using this on youtube to create all these different lipstick colors, but she was putting on colors that there was a warning against! All I can picture is acid burns on her mouth or something.

 

Who has this, and what the heck do you do with it?

I got something confusing too. I got a Nyx glitter aqua eyeliner and it said that it can't be anywhere near the eye. I was like WTF? o.0 I even told my eye friend that and he was like "what?"

Wayne Goss makes a good point about this. He says that it's like "may contain nuts" warnings on certain foods. Certain pigments can cause allergic reactions and irritation, but people who aren't allergic eat those foods. Many people use makeup with those kinds of pigments near their eyes or lips, especially in different countries because of the differing regulations. It's all up to you! Patch test on your body, face, and eyelids to see if you have a reaction. If you don't, feel free to use it however way you want to! :smileyhappy:

I generally always agree with Wayne -- and I agree with the above, too. Allergic reactions are so individual.

(glaring at thread hijackers, ahem 'babe and jojobe) Basically, it's cakes of pigment. I borrowed my friend's palette once, and it's great for mixing custom colors. However, the texture is a bit greasy, so if you do use it on your face or eyes, I recommend setting it with a powder. If you're uneasy about the warnings or have sensitive skin, I'd recommend doing your skincare, priming your face, and putting on foundation before putting these colors on, so less of it would touch your skin directly. Plus, it's a great value dollars-to-ounce wise, so I personally plan on getting it (when I'm off my low-buy).

Not fair, I half meant this thread as a joke! (And half I really wanted to know what people use this for.)

All I know is that Wayne Goss uses it and since he is so awesome, I assume that this is awesome too! That's all you really need to know! :smileywink: Can we please talk about how adorable his wink and accent is?

It's mainly for professionals or special effects artists. Some people on youtube use the brown to contour and the magenta/red for blush. It can also be used for any editorial magazine shoots.

So what you are telling me ...is that if I am not a professional I cannot use this?? Why ... why would they sell it if I cannot use it??

They won't sell it to you if you can't do this.E9E6AEFC5033961F7F9D2F5F8188C_h400_w300_m2_bblack_q99_p99_ccMoLMiUL.jpg
