    Where are our lovely Specktrettes?

    Where is everyone? I noticed that Jude, Prppygrl, and Caffn8me have not posted in a while or it may just be my imagination. Does anyone know if everything is all right?

    Depotting lustre eyeshadows?

    I am thinking about getting a couple of 15-pan palettes, and I was wondering if anyone think it is a good idea to depot lustre eyeshadows since they have a tendancy to get a little messy. Or should I leave them in the pot. I could also get a 4-pan palette just for my lustres if anyone think that...

    Chanel's Allure Sensuelle...

    I have tested this on a paper tester a few days ago. I cannot get my mind off it. Just to make sure, this is the one that has that spicy smell to it right? Is it worth getting? And what is the reaction that you get with wearing it around your significant other? I am so tempted to get this...

    Wrath and Rage

    Here is a pic that I did for the Vice/virtue challenge. I know that the pic is small, but all I had was a camera phone. And please the eyebrows that I painted on, after I saw the pic I wish I had not done that. Like they always say, we learn from out mistakes.

    Ingrown hairs on legs after shaving

    I always get ingrown hairs after I shave my legs (mainly just my upper legs). I was just wondering if there is a specific way that you shave (someone told me to go with the hair growth when shaving that area, but I can never do that because it leaves it so prickly) or is there products that I am...

    Sketch-y from the Thunder

    God that would make a great name for a FOTD. The reason why this thread is here is because I try to make Sketch work on me, but it drowns out the other three shades in the Thunder quad. I tryed using it for the V in the outer corners of my eyes but it is still too dark. The other colors look so...

    Is it okay to dance in the showers?

    I know that it is okay to sing in the shower as long as there is no one else around to hear your off-key singing lol. But is it okay to dance in the shower while you are singing? I have a habit of doing this. I think it is because it is such a small space and wet as well, that it allows me to...

    Why are we addicted to MAC?

    That is a question that will perhaps haunt us when we are flat broke lol. Is it the product is so fabulous that we just have to have it? Or is it because we want to look so pretty?

    such perfect lines

    I have found this pic from another forum. I been starring at this pic for too long lol. I was wondering how do they create the lines between the different shades. My only guess with this is something like a straight-edge such as a side of a paper. Do Make-up Artist actually do that, or are they...

    Graphito Paint

    I was wondering if the MAC Graphito paint is safe to use on the eyes. I don't want to get it and find out that I can't use it the way that I plan to use it for. I was hoping to replace my MAC Black creme e/l (is this stuff supposed to semi-hard and thick, or is it because it is old). I was...
