If you are wearing makeup of any kind, you owe it to your skin to thoroughly remove it as soon as you are done for the day and to use plenty of nourishing skincare packed with moisture and anti-oxidants. They don't have to be costly - there are plenty of fruits, veggies and oils that are absorbed through the skin, though they might not do some of the more targeted things like the tech stuff does. I definitely see the toll especially on the skin around my eyes, after I started wearing makeup regularly, but it's nothing I can't keep under control if I make sure to soothe and pamper it to balance things out.

 

Be good to yourself!! cheerleader.gif

 

Agreed. You only have one skin. Old cream products on skin = wrinkle galore in the long run

 

But everyone has the right to make their own decision.

That's what I do as well and my PP ones also look like new.
Same here smiles.gif

Yeah, for some reason when PP came out I went hog wild without thinking if I'd wear them or not. I'm def more careful now with cream products! Leaned my lesson

No, it just means they're drying up. Any cream product in a jar will do this. Just make sure that it's covered the entire time. When you're applying the product to one eye, flip the jar upside down on a tissue to reduce the exposure to air. Then get more product our for the other eye, and flip it upside down again, and replace the lid immediately after usage. The same applies to fluidlines as well.

Just remember, NEVER add liquid of any form to the jar. This will cause mold and bacteria to form, and will ruin the product.

I actually also turn the jar upside down in between doing my eyes. I put it on the upside down lid instead of a tissue and it seems to work. Thanks for the tips about not putting liquid in the jars. I've not done that yet, but I might have once they are starting to dry out. Now I definitely won't.

Yeah you can always dig a bit out (enough to do both eyes) and, using a palette, add a bit of MM to soften it up, and use it that way if it dries up. But putting the liquid directly into the jar is just asking for trouble!

I'll do that when I need to. I recently got a palette and spatula and already had Mixing Medium:)

I think throwing out makeup is a personal choice.   If its not up to your standards of freshness then that's a good place to determine if you want to keep it or not.    Personally, mascara is the only makeup that I constantly replenish cause I am in and out of it. I rotate my paint pots so I am never opening and closing one long enough for it spoil.   I also wipe out my makeup every now and then and check for any damage over time.  I have to say its rare for me to get rid or something. 

 

I hope I can fine one paint pot of this collection that I can work with.  Anything too glittery is a big fat no!

 

I agree. Personal choice, in my opinion. I take very good care of my makeup and store it in a cool, dark place and I've had some PPs last longer than they need to, while they still work well.

 

Immediately after I know I have called it a day, I take my makeup off. Remove, cleanse, tone, moisturize, the whole she bang and I haven't had any problems with my skin.

You've inspired me to try Smokey over Dangerous Cuvee - I've got a big night out on Friday that I was in makeup planning mode for!

 

Thanks again for all the info!

Would you suggest the same for the Electric Cool Eyeshadows?

 

I was thinking about the shelf life of these only just recently because I have them about half a year now

and was not sure whether they are more a cream product or a powder th_dunno.gif

Glad they're perm That gives my bank account some time to heal, I hope...

post #235 of 423

Based on the swatches of Cham Pale's Vintage Selection I am not sure anymore...

It doesn't seem that glittery, but we will see...

 

I just don't want another pp like Let's skate, due to the glitter migration...

I'm still corious about the 2 new colours, the green and the violet one...

 

I also store my pp upside down, and when they are open as well, and luckily I didn't experience drying.

My oldest pp is Bare Study, I beleive I have it since 2 years, I still have the half of the jar and it is still in good condition.

The only one that is drier than the others is Soft Ochre, but I beleive it is due to the creamy consistency.

post #236 of 423
I'm so glad these are perm! I definitely want a few PPP but it can wait, I need a lot of money for April/May/June. lol.gif

As much as I whine about glitter migration, I actually like glitter and frost A LOT.  Sure they can emphasize fine lines, but I just be careful where I place them and place a matter e/s on top if needed.

 

I am just excited to get something different from the sort of blaise (but quite useful!) regular Paint Pots that are currently available...Also, I thought Vintage Selection was more wine colored (play on the word Vintage) not coppery but I could recall incorrectly (esp. at my age!)

Yep, I always use a primer.

There are 8 paint pots in the promo picture, but you only listed 7. What's happened to Dangerous Cuivree?
