    I never thought about Cork - I will try that too! I have used Chestnut but I have to blend a bit.

    Cork is my go to nude lip liner. I used to use Chestnut but *shrugs* you can blame that on the 90s.

    Have you tried Cork with mink lipstick from Revlon? Another would be Cork with j'Dore by Marc Jacobs. Cork and Velvet Teddy by MAC. All of these look good with Mac Boy Bait gloss too.

    I just love that no one gives me a second thought at work with my "strange" lip colors. I am wearing an ombre lip with KVD Plan 9 and MAC Blooz. I wish people would always just let me be.

    Interesting!!! Kelly is so damn gorgeous its almost unfair LOL. Hopefully it'll be in lots of stores, unlike Iman or Black Radiance which are fantastic (!) but hard to find, depending on where you live. I'm so happy for her...and us as consumers!!!

    Shea Moisture has a great foundation for dark & deep skintones. My friend who always has to mix her foundations found a perfect match in Shea Moisture Ebony. She's between NC45 & NC50
    Formally known as Purple Popcorn.

    So I've depotted all of my eyshadows except for my VIseart palettes and Brooke Sheilds Mac Gravitas palette (I will though) I hope I don't regret it. I even depotted the Melt Cosmetics Shadows and the two ABH palettes I had. I was doing a friends makeup who constantly swtiches up her hair color and style and brought ALL of my palettes. It was too much. Now I just need to get some more Nars empty palettes to organize them. The Nars palettes seem to be the largest. This will also make it easier for me to see and use everything. One of these days I'll depot lipsticks and blushes.

    I do not regret depotting mine years ago. Although, it was a royal pain when I did and I ruined a few shadows in the process...sigh. So traumatizing! I have not purchased a potted single in ages because of it.

    I think you saw way back in the beginning of the year when I ordered new MAC pans and reorganized all my pans into the MUFE XL palettes. I love them! It also makes is easier to select out colors for travel into a smaller palette. I also did this with most of my blushes and bronzers.

    yeah I think I'm going to do it with my blushes next. I used to do it with my single mac shadows and this is the first time I've tackled palettes. I'm thinking about doing my viseart palettes too. How many mac shadows can you get in the MUFE palette, I can't determine if it is bigger or the same size as the NARS palette. It has a magnet in it correct?

    Alright, everything is depotted except for my extra dimension shadows and blushes, my oversized mac blushes, and a square ombre one, chanel blushes, and various highlighters. Those will stay in their pans. I still have to depot my Gravitas palette, but it has to wait. I ran out of steel circles and I'm waiting for my Nars palettes to come in.

    I even depotted my Nars blushes, they were easier than the mac products. Now how to decide to organize everything. Color, finish? Finish color? mix the brands together by color (they are various sizes), mix the brands together according to their size.

    I really don't need anymore eyeshadow, unless it's truly unique. I'm still looking at the ABH MR palette though. LOL And yes, it too will be depotted!!! I love looking at everything at once!!

    I just wanted to say that I am excited for the Pantone Color of 2017 to be "Greenery". I plan to interpret that liberally. I did not do much color this year but I think having this color of 2017 might spur me to remember. Green eye liner on a neutral face, green shadows, which I have so many of, I plan to revisit LC Serpentina lipstick! Nice.

    1. @Shars - thanks for the rec of cork liner for KvD Bow n Arrow - have you tried Ludwig yet? Very similar description.
    2. So, WHY don't I wear Relentlessly Red more often?
    3. I miss Medgal because she really kept the Beauty of Color section popping.

    1. I tossed out my Laura Mercier translucent setting powder. I had the smaller travel size. I noticed that it made my pores appear larger, which is strange. Plus, I just grew tired of using it. I like using my Pro Longwear concealer in NW35 for my undereyes and lightly setting in with my MSFN in Dark.

    2. MAC is my favorite brand, but I've never bought anything from their limited edition releases. Not even from Mariah, Rhianna, or Taraji. I don't consider myself a huge fan, but if Beyonce were to do a collaboration with MAC...

    3. Lately I've been reflecting on my journey with makeup. I used to do the bare minimum, but when I visited my sister for Thanksgiving 3-4 years ago, it was a wrap. I played in all of her makeup and soon after became VIB. I bought many products because I saw them on YouTube. These days, I watch more makeup inventory, decluttering, empties, and Project Pan videos. I have a nice sized collection and I'm focusing on using each item. I used to have over 50 lipsticks until one day I realized I don't even wear lipstick like that! Having a smaller collection makes me focus on really enjoying what I have and adding products that I've researched and have sampled.
    Stats: C6
    Favorite Brands: MAC, Urban Decay, BECCA

    1. You're welcome. No, I don't have Ludwig... will look into it but I really don't need another nude lipstick ever in life lol. Actually wore Bow n Arrow yesterday. I so love that lipstick.
    2. I wore Relentlessly Red on Monday!! I also wonder why I don't wear it more often.
    3. I miss Meddy too. She did have a way of pulling us altogether for the themed weeks, didn't she?

    Why didn't I buy MAC Retro matte Liquid Lipstick in So Me much, much earlier? It would be my perfect pinky, mauve-y matte nude and would look FANTASTIC with NYX Slim Lip Liner in Never except for my trashed up-dry lips. Oh well, adding gloss lol. Liquid Lipstick sure reminds you when you haven't been doing your skincare right.

    OK, I could not find the Love & Hip Hop thread in this forum but I just want to say I LOVED the red lipstick Keyshia Cole was wearing in the confessionals or whatever they are called last night. Does anyone remember where we can go for a makeup breakdown?

    @Prettypackages definitely check out that shade. The first go-round I bought one for my daughter and not for myself, but I grabbed one on a whim another time and I could not believe how nice it was. I thought it would be too light on me.

    MAC F&B in C9 has been dc'd...RIP. N12 too. I am slowly leaving the MAC foundations. They apparently don't want me or my sister to have a decent shade match in a liquid formulation.
