    Traincase and care recs

    Could anyone recommend a decent sized traincase that is sturdy enough for travel? As well, what if you get makeup residue or spill something on the interior lining of your traincase? If it's a velvety material, could you get it damp/wet and use any cleaning agents? Thanks, ladies!

    Studio Fix Fluid

    Does Studio Fix Fluid foundation run darker than other MAC foundations/concealers? I am a NC35 in the Studio finish concealer, but it seems that even the NC30 in the SFF is a bit too dark for me! Would NC25 in SFF be too light? (For reference, I'm medium oilve skin with yellow/golden...

    Paints drying out?

    Just wondering, how long do the paints tend to stay fresh and creamy inside the tube if it's sealed (i.e. haven't poked the hole yet). I have an extra that probably won't get used until 1-2 years from now (a little goes a long way!) lol. TIA!

    The Pigment Junkie's Flashtronic Haul/Review

    Here's another haul/review for the Flashtronic Collection: MSF: Global glow - beautiful! On my NC35 skin, it's a glowy (not glittery and oily, thank god!) bronzy gold that would be great over a warm-toned blush or on its own as a bronzer Mineralized e/s: First of all, I was a little...

    The Pigment Junkie's Rushmetal Haul

    So being the pigment queen that I am, I couldn't help but get 6 of the rushmetal pigments. I even swatched my hands before going to the store full of past permanent/LE pigments that I thought might be dupes of the rushmetal ones lol. Here's what I swatched from my collection and how I...

    Lustering vs. Impassioned l/s

    I would love to get a brighter pink lippie (but not too cool-toned or pure fuchsia) and was wondering what the difference in color is between the two and which one is a warmer shade - for reference, I'm NC 35 with pigmented pinky-mauve lips.

    Light Pink l/l

    Does anyone have any good recs for a light/soft pink lipliner? - I LOVE cranberry l/l (on me, it's a medium pink without any blue/plum/beige/brown undertones, so it's perfect) and am looking for approximately the same type of pink but perhaps several shades lighter to go with my lighter pink...

    Berry lips

    I'm looking for a mid-tone berry (for day wear) that does not lean toward the really cool purplish/plum side. I've tried craving and captive so far and both look almost bluish-violet tinged plum on me =( I'm looking for something with more pinkish or reddish tones in it instead of being too...

    To toss or not to toss..

    Alright girls and boys, how many of you actually toss various makeup products in your collection when they have reached their "recommended" shelf-life? If so, which products? I'm especially curious about those with really large collections - I don't know about you, but some of those...

    Coral Lipliner rec

    I love my Vegas Volt and Eager l/s but I don't exactly have lipliners that's similar to the color of the lipsticks...currently I'm using creme sherry, which doesn't alter the color of either (which is a good thing cuz I love their colors just the way they are), but I'm looking for a liner(s)...

    Traincase and brush rolls

    I'm looking to purchase a traincase to store makeup when I'm on the go (not for storing my collection around the house). I "may" be temporarily moving to another country for a few years and want to take my makeup along. I'm looking for a hard or metal outter one that's perhaps not HUGE in size...

    A lipstick's life..

    I was re-organizing my makeup collection today and became curious about the life-span of a full tube of lipstick - by life-span I mean the approximate number of times you can apply a lipstick until it's all used up. Anyone know?

    Rec for soft pink lipstick/gloss

    I'm looking for a MAC soft pink lipstick and gloss (to go with it) that's perhaps more on the warmer side (instead of really cool-toned). I don't usually prefer frost finishes. I'm NC35 with medium pigmented pinky-mauve lips. So far I've tried sweetie (too cool-toned), angel (too pale), and...

    Concealer rec

    I'm still in search of the perfect full-coverage concealer for covering up acne scarring (reddish to dark brown) and won't make me break out (I have really oily skin..and sensitive too). I'm currently using BE foundation/multi-tasking minerals but I want something even better than the...

    Purple recs

    I have another makeup rec for a certain dress, yet again, for another wedding (so many this summer!) - it's a darkish purple/plum(kinda coolish in color, but not a blue-violet) chiffon dress. I'm not too sure what colors to go with for eyes/lips/cheeks. I'm open to purple eyes or other...

    Curling lashes

    Here's a question I'm dying to know the answer to - are you suppose to curl your lashes BEFORE mascara or AFTER or both? I'm been curling them before mascara all my life but ran into someone yesterday who said that I should do it afterwards? Sometimes I find that after curling my lashes and...

    Makeup rec for attending wedding

    I'll be attending an evening wedding in the summer and will be wearing a jewel toned teal dress (the color is a very rich) with silver shoes and was wondering what to do with my makeup - I don't want the eyes to be too bold in color for this occasion (I have brown eyes). I was thinking maybe...

    Wedding reception

    I know you're not suppose to wear white since that's the bride's color, but can you wear black, burgundy or red to an evening wedding reception? (formal)

    Anyone ever have trouble with the slingback straps slipping off your heel when you walk? I hate when this happens (which is for most slingbacks) because I really love the look. I have a few pairs that keep doing that and usually I fix it by putting a stick on strap on the back, but the straps...
