Random WOC Makeup Thoughts

Hi ladies! I have this idea...can we have a place were we spout out our random thoughts about makeup that don't require a thread with responses, or even a response at all? Like, something that needs to get off your chest that you just know the ladies of this forum would understand. Let me start: 1. Why, oh WHY does CoverFX end their "G" line of foundation shades at 80? Do they NOT know how fantastic G90 would be for me? 2. Auntie, I love you but you are not an intensity 2. I bought you a foundation in your shade (intensity 4) and in your formula...why won't you wear it? I am getting to the point where I won't go places I might run into ppl I know with you because I don't want them asking me what's up with that. 3. Why is it so hard to remove L'Oreal Miss Manga mascara? I don't even like it that much and this makes me like it less.

Not everyone needs or should use banana powder. I get what you are doing but banana powder isn't the end all be all of under eye highlighting!

Ha! There is an article today on another makeup site I visit trying to persuade readers that they NEED Banana Powder. You make a valid point. I think that ALL trends are not for ALL people. Like, if you can do it an own it, cool, but don't blame trends because you don't feel you look good. That's on you and if Banana Powder / ABH contouring kits, etc / liquid lipstick/ whatever, is not working for you, then don't wear it. Everyone else is too busy wearing their own makeup to care about yours.

My issue is with the color banana itself. There is NO way that banana can work for everyone out there. If that's what you want to do go ahead. However find a color that brightens AND flatters your complextion.
I can use banana but I perfer Sienna or Topaz more.

Topaz is MAGIC. It is.

I am SO salty that the CoverFX shade N90 isn't in stores. Ain't got but 3 deep shades and didn't release them all? I'm tempted to never buy their stupid drops in spite.

1. Why are makeup companies still refusing to produce shades for deeper skin tones in all of their product lines? I want to stop buying from them, but then I wouldn't have anybody to buy from!

2. I watch beauty-related YT videos from people of all complexions, but I feel as though fairer skintones don't watch deep skinned YTers and it makes me sad.

3. I LOVE wearing "too much" blush. MAC Raizin just does something to me and I can't stop lol.

LOL I am thinking the same thing, about not buying any more CoverFX base shades until they can 1) manage to get them all in stores and 2) increase their G shade range.

***whispers*** so do I. I was Magenta like a mofo a few days ago. I cannot wait until MAC brings the powder blush extension into stores. I hear there are more colors that are WOC friendly. I want at least 3, even though my blush drawer is more than full.

I was wearing LaFemme Magenta that day, which has a little glow to it. MAC Magenta is very nice too. They had brought it back for awhile but I don't see it on the site now (I wonder if it will come back with the Powder Blush Extension collection this year). Here is a link and swatch for the LaFemme blush (n/a): http://camerareadycosmetics.com/products/la-femme-blush-rouge-refill.html

Thanks! I always want to buy La Femme blushes but then I just get so overwhelmed by all of the beautiful shades. I guess I'll just have to buy them all :haha:

They are really good value for the performance. And a little goes a long way.
 
1. I wish some woc would use a lip liner with nude lipsticks. No one should think a powdered donut mouth looks good.

2. Why do so many cosmetic companies create foundation for woc either too red or too yellow? Where are the neutral shades?

That's all I got for now!

that lip liner pet peeve will never be eased... some women must actually like that look

When will we get the black girl equivalent of Temptalia? I'm sure the Style and Beauty Doctor will not say no if MAC sent her products to review before a launch.

So true... I want a dark-skinned WOC blog that consistent so badly.

I am having such a hankering for a colorful or smoky eye. I have got to stop this neutral eye makeup madness. That is all...lol

I've thought about doing one every time I'm looking for swatches for my skin tone and coming up short. It would be a huge undertaking to do one as extensive as Temptalia's.
