Ok, can someone help me with eye shadow primer?

I've never used it. What does it do? Make the shadow last longer?

Who makes the best one?

Thanks!

Thank you. But what does it do? Is it just that your eye shadow lasts longer?

I actually have 2 sparkle eye shadows from Urban Decay and love them.

Primer gives your shadow a good base to adhere to, keeps it from creasing/sliding and keeps the color nice and bright, and it does last longer. I use it even with really good shadows that don't crease on their own, just because it evens the skin tone on my lids and makes the color so much prettier. I have even used the MAC Paints under my shadow and gone swimming, and after being in the water I will still have some shadow on.

thanks I have been looking for something that made my face look and feel like it did on my wedding day and right before. a friend gave me a tube of roc and I LOVE that stuff but haven't been able to get my hands on anymore but i'm terrible at ordering things. when i switched to BE my dh knew i wanted to try it so bad that he ordered it for me lol. i got the samples of EM i'm not too sure about them yet I have only used to twice but this weekend i think i'll really test them. I have the mary kay micro abrasion kit and I like it. The problem i am seem to be having is that between my eye brows and around my nose gets real dry but when i use lotion it get too oily

If I can't have all three things on my wish list, I'll take #s 1 and 2. Three is not mandatory, but would be nice.

.
Here's my .03 : All around winner for me is the Almay eye makeup remover pads, non-oily formula. They are around $5 and work on everything but waterproof mascara and do not irritate my eyes or leave a film on the inside rim of your eyes like the oily ones.

I like Clinique's Take the Day Off, but it is a liquid and they are messier to me than the pads. Works well, though, no irritation and I don't know how much it costs because it was in a combo pack I bought.

Don't laugh, but, if you really want to save bucks, you know what I found works great? Pamper's Sensitive baby wipes (in fragrance free if you can find them)! They are soft, get the mascara off and feel like they aren't tearing at my eyelids. That one came from being a new mom and running out of remover and being desperate! 72 for around $3.50. I use these in conjunction with the Clinique stuff to wipe it off because it's softer than a cotton pad or tissue.

Ok, another question, what is the best eye cream to get rid of puffy eyes immediately? Have used Garnier Nutrisse, Clinique Just for Eyes, and Loreal double lift in the past few months. Not as good as Avon's eye gel in the orange pot that they've stopped making!!! I will trade a few wrinkles if someone can depuff my eyes--it's making me look old!!!

I think it depends on which one you use. All of the ones I've used have stopped creasing, and they help your eyeshadow and liner stay on all day. I'm using Urban Decay Primer Potion right now and it's fine. My shadow does stay on and it doesn't crease, but it doesn't provide the same type of base as MAC Paint. The Paint gives more intense color when you put your shadow on and I think has more staying power. A tiny bit goes a long way.

Everything else I've tried from Urban Decay I love. I bought a sampler of eyeliner and they're beautiful colors and hands down the smoothest, nicest liners I've ever used.


whogirl'smom, thanks for the tip about Pamper's Senstivite wipes. I have plenty of those.

I've been using baby wipes for make-up removal for a couple of years. I had read an article about actresses using them after being on stage so I gave it a try.

Those of you who have a selection of perfumes, how do you keep them from going rancid? The most I ever have is two because of this.

The Pond's moist wipes are also good makeup removers, I keep them in my case when I'm in a show. Not like washing, but it takes off makeup well.

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 really really really like Everyday Minerals in Matte and Intense. I mix one of those with the semi-matte, and it's wonderful. Have you tried Mineral makeup?

The other thing I REALLY like about Mineral makeup - is when you take pictures, the flash doesnt reflect off your face - and make you look like a ghost. Anyone else notice that?

I love the Too Faced mascara. It took some getting used to - but now Im hooked. Ill admit that initially I was like "ehhh - I dont know if I like this" - but the staying power is amazing. No smears or anything. And your lashed can REALLY be built up with it.

Ill admit Im a makeup snob when it comes to mascara. Ive never tried the Maybelline one.

Seriously,
I am looking for a flat iron....has anyone used a Solano Sapphire? MY HD used one and it is fantastic. It is not a well known brand but I found it on Folica for 129 and at some vaccuum site for 109 but I am holding off till I find out if non professionals really like it. I know when I go to my HD my hair always looks better and I can never replicate it even if I have the same tools.
Like I said - I bow down before you because of that. I dont even think I would have been able to think straight for weeks, after that happening!

I have never used that iron. Have you checked like makeup alley or anything for reviews?

Sometimes I think youre best going with what you KNOW works - a CHI.

Totally. Nothing at all like NARS blush. I have Outlaw, Orgasm & Deep Throat. I also REALLY like Too Faced's bronzers. They have a set of 3, around xmas - had all 3 of them in there. I love that thing.

Im a snob with shampoo and cond. too. I wont use anything NOT salon brand. So, although I have tried that Fekkai smoothing stuff, I havent used the S & C.

Im using Redken All Soft - Goldwell Kerasilk - TiGi Moisture Maniac & Chi's line, right now (yeah - I switch a lot)

And I also use Sunglitz's pigmented shampoo, mixed in with whatever shampoo I'm using (it's SO concentrated) But I use the blue and purple - to keep my blonde from getting brassy.

What did you think of the Garnier one? Ive never used one, and was thinking about trying it.

I use perfume everyday. So, none of them have ever gotten bad. And when I get sick of them - they become air fresheners. LOL! Expensive air fresheners.
