The Question Thread: Because not all questions need their own thread.

I'm making this thread because I simply don't want to create a new thread for every little question that pops into my head, nor do I think that most questions need a separate topic. 

 

I had previously just dropped whatever random question that came to mind into the Random Thread (thanks jemly!), but I had been thinking about starting this for a while and figured I'd give it a shot to see if it could be of any use. 

 

I'm well aware that the people who could best utilize this thread will likely remain completely oblivious to it, but if it can consolidate even a small fraction of questions -- and maybe even generate some interesting conversations both beauty and non-beauty related -- that seems worthwhile.

Official thread anti-mascot: Lucille Bluth.

It probably would've been wise of me to have a relatively inane question to use as an example and kick this thread off... 

 

Well, since I apparently don't have any pressing questions, I'll start with this two-parter:

 

What's your favorite drug store nail polish shade AND which official mascot puppy is your favorite? Bonus/Extra Credit: What's it's name?

How often does the website restock its products??

I mean I've been waiting FOREVER (more than a month!!) for the following:

- Holographic Palette from KVD 

- Dewy Stix Highlighting Balm from Ciaté London

- Pro Glow Liquid Highlighter from Tarte (the "Make Believe in Yourself" collection) 

- Matte Liquid Lipstick in the color 105 from MUFE.

PS: I'm on the Canadian Sephora.

Does anyone know if these tiny lip mask samples are how much you should use per time? 

 

I cant figure out how much to put on...

 

Is this "three uses" ?

Re: The Question Thread: Because not all questions need their own thread.

Yep, I used a Q-tip to apply, and got 3-4 applications out of each packet.

Re: The Question Thread: Because not all questions need their own thread.

I got definitely more than one use out of each little lip! I guess it depends on how much you like to put on. It was thick so I didn't use much and probably got maybe 3-4 uses out of each?

Re: The Question Thread: Because not all questions need their own thread.

I have a question about Sunday Riley Blue Moon Cleansing Balm. Is the jar usually sealed so that it can't leak?  Does the cleansing balm usually look like solid light blue wax when you first open the jar? 

I received a jar today that wasn't sealed and leaked oil onto its box.  The product looks like dry light blue wax.  Does anyone remember if their jar was sealed with anything but a tight lid?

Re: The Question Thread: Because not all questions need their own thread.

@tsavorite it's been almost a year since I had a pot so I can't recall for certain about the seal but it was definitely a dry, waxy light blue. It gets less waxy textured once you start digging into it

 

i thought mine had one of those flimsy plastic discs that fits over the opening under the cap, but I could be wrong 

Re: The Question Thread: Because not all questions need their own thread.

Mine wasn't sealed with anything,and occasionally leaks out. It is definitely a light blue color. It's been too long so I can't say about the wax look, sorry.

@Mochapj@Samtian,

Thanks so much!  Smiley Happy  You together both answered my question perfectly! Yes, there was a plastic disc under the cap, stuck to the lid.  Not much of a seal.

Re: The Question Thread: Because not all questions need their own thread.

Ooh yes mine had the disc, I completely forgot about that.

Hello lovelies! 

 

My friend is going to Korea soon and offered to bring me back some stuff. 

 

What makeup/skincare would you guys recommend I ask her to bring back? Thank you! 

Re: The Question Thread: Because not all questions need their own thread.

I ordered from Cult Beauty and got a shipping confirmation on March 8 by "Standard International Shipping" and still nothing, and no tracking that I can find. Should I call, or is this normal?  

 

Last time I ordered from them, it was the CH Box and back ordered so I didn't pay attention. 

Re: The Question Thread: Because not all questions need their own thread.

@sister13 Mine came yesterday finally!!

Re: The Question Thread: Because not all questions need their own thread.

I'm in the same boat - I emailed yesterday and they said I should receive by end of this week.. I'm located in California

Okay, thanks for letting me know! @shirleylin88

Re: The Question Thread: Because not all questions need their own thread.

Do small, slim empty magnetic palettes exist for depotting? I'm ideally looking for something credit card sized, but the smallest I can find is the MUFE one that's always out of stock (even then it's heavier and bulkier than I'd prefer) 

 

thanks! 

Re: The Question Thread: Because not all questions need their own thread.

If you don't mind a little DIY, you can always either depot an existing small compact, clean it out, and paint the base with magnetic paint.

The below is from the blogger I Am Style-ish and she took the initial two palettes, depotted them, depotted her Hello Kitty pans, painted the base of the empty palettes with magnetic paint, decked out their outsides with glittery pink paint, and attached the HK pans with magnetic backings.

 

 

If you don't have any small makeup compacts to spare in the depotting process, you may even check out E.L.F's blush/bronzer duo which is only $4, and is about the size of the blush/bronzer duo up top and similar in size to the Nars blush/bronzer compact.

MAC's Pro Palette Small Compact may also be a viable size. Granted it's not magnetic, but you can always just paint the inside base with some magnetic paint as well (dimensions: 4.4" x 2.6").

The below pic shows the compact with one of MAC's two shadow pan inserts just for a size-reference, granted without the insert you're freeing up some more room so you can fit more than just two pans.

Z Palette also has their Mini Palette, dimensions are included below:

Z•Palette Mini Palette product smear.

Outside 4.06"L x 2.18"W x 0.5"D

Inside 3.25"L x 1.33"W x 0.25"D

Re: The Question Thread: Because not all questions need their own thread.

@lylysa Okay, first off girl. You're a rockstar!!! Thank you for such a detailed response! I'm gonna do this DIY as soon as I have some free time. 

 

Secondly, my mind is blown. I had no clue magnetic paint even exists!! 

 

Thanks again! <3

Re: The Question Thread: Because not all questions need their own thread.

You're welcome, and thank you for the kind words! I'm happy to help out!

 

In the blog that I pulled that tutorial from, the blogger used Martha Stewart's magnetic paint (can be found in Home Depot locations for about $5).

 

Martha Stewart Crafts 4-oz. Magnetic Paint

 

Krylon also has a magnetic spray paint primer that may be worth checking out.

 

 

 

If you end up doing the DIY route, let us know how it goes! Smiley Very Happy

Re: The Question Thread: Because not all questions need their own thread.

I just took a screenshot of your name so I remember who to tag...let's just hope the photo doesn't get lost in the abyss of other photos lol. 

 

Im definitely excited to do it. It'll be my "treat" once things arent so crazy and hectic for me. 

 

My original naked palette is completely falling apart on me, so I'm eager to depot! Smiley Happy

Re: The Question Thread: Because not all questions need their own thread.

^_^

 

Crafty projects are always super fun! All the best in the depotting process (fingers crossed that no pan gives you trouble).
