Try NARS Outlaw. It looks too dark in the package - but it's not AND it lasts forever and ever - cuz it's such a nice deep shade. Very flushed look. I love it.

In the summer - I like Deep Throat - but it's honestly just a darker shade of Organism... you know what I'm saying.

(you know I looked for a picture, and none of them do it justice. Try it on, in person, at the store...it's a keeper.... the sales lady talked me into it, and Im so glad she did. )

Will you just go buy Lash Injection and be done with it already?!?!? **shake fist**

When your Urban Decay Primer runs out, you should cut it open. As in, cut it vertically down the middle. I have yet to do this myself, but heard of people doing it and getting two little pots full of product out of it. It's because the bottle is shaped weird, so the applicator can't get everything. They were able to fish out like half the product. There's some youtube videos with instructions.

I also got some stuff from Ulta (can't remember what brand off-hand, I think it was Borjois) that is an eye-makeup remover in a tiny tube with a sponge, so you can fix mistakes without taking everything off. Nice when you're in a hurry.
I think the best makeup wipes hands down are No17 at Target. It takes everything off and doesn't leave you dry.

Just some useful make up info!

I watched "The View" today and Barbara Walter's make up artist showed her top picks for make up under $10:

Foundation: Max Factor– $7.75 - This was a neat roll on, good for purse.

Eye Shadow: Ultimate Expression Wet N Wild Color Palate– $4.99

Eye Liner (Liquid): L'OREAL– $7.35

Mascara: Last Blast– $8.95 - I have this!

Eyelash: Andrea Modlash– $3.29

Blush: Revlon Powder Blush– $9.79

Highlighter: Black Radiance– $4.19 - this was very nice

Volumizer/Plumper: Physicians Formula Plumper and Lipstick Plumper– $9.95

Marker: Cover Girl Outlast Lip Stain– $7.29 - this looked really cool!

Nail Polish: Nic's Sticks– $6.99 - tempted to try this

Hmmm - interesting.

I know that me personally - there is a Cover Girl blush I always keep in my purse (cuz theyre so nice and small!) And I think it's rose - something.... but it's darn tootin' close to Nars "organism" .

And I personally love that Cover Girl makeup smell. Like Noxema.

But I have a HUGE problem with most drug store shadows. Theyre so unpigmented, I hate most all of them.

The Milani line is nice because it's for women of color, hence - more pigmented colors, so they show up.

Loreal's HIP line can be fun.

Oooo - are any of you into MAC's pigments??? We should all buy one - buy little containers for all of us, and swap them all out!!! KWIM? You never use a whole one - and we'd be able to get ALL of them!

The only one I ever did use all the way up, was Vanilla. It was SUCH a wonderful shade. A warm creamy white, that turned pink when it hit the light.

Has anyone used MAC's SHROOM shadow? That always gets killer reviews, and Ive never used it.

That's the problem I have with so many of the red shades I know there has to be a good shade out there for me!

fragrance - Philosophy Pure Grace. It is wonderfully clean. Not fruity, flowery, or spicy. Just super clean. Even better than the Clean brand of fragrances

remover/cleanser - Philosoply Purity Made Simple. Absolutely the best. Melts the makeup right off and leaves your face feeling really clean but not dry at all.

Now, what I need is a good concealer for darker circles. I've got the Tarte dark circle defense being shipped to me now so we'll see how that does.

I also have another problem that you may be able to help me with. I use Smashbox primer under my eyes under my concealer. Then I use my eyeliner over that (currently Maybelline unstoppable) but under one eye (just the one) I'm getting a smudge after a few hours. I think it is due to the eyeliner but I suppose it may be due to mascara. Any ideas?

Did anyone else pick up the MAC Disney lip balms when they were out?

I have 3 of them:

http://www.trademe.co.nz/Health-beau...-200325856.htm

I wish I never would have actually USED them though - cuz the covers dont look as snazzy.

But - it was so good whipping 'em out. It was like my 2 most favorite things in the world came together... it was like the planets has aligned....all was at peace, and life was grand.


Ummm.... what else do I love. On the note of those little pots (above) MAC also has a clear 'lip conditioner' (in fact i think those balms are little tinted conditioner, anyways....) If I use that before bed every single night - my lips are NEVER EVER dry EVER. That stuff is worth it's weight in gold. I cant be without it. (am I the only one with lip balm in their night stand, who wont go to bed without it on? )


Is anyone interested in an 'Everyday, this is what I do' post, that we all have to post one?

Milani makes a blush that is pretty much an exact duplicate of Nars "Organism". And it's less than $5.

I like the HIP line, too. There was LE MAC shadow that people were coveting like crazy a few years ago called Parrot. The turquoise-y side of the HIP shadow duo that has a turquoise-y color and blue-ish color is a very good dupe of Parrot.

Pigments - I have a bunch of them, many I got as Gratis while working at MAC, and some that I bought from CCO's. I'm willing to send out some sample containers to some folks if interested. I'll look through my stuff and post later which colors I have.
