has anyone tried revlon cream shadows as primers? I like them :-) In general, i only use jumbo eye pencils or cream shadows as my color primers. I still use a neutral primer and then follow up with a cream color shadow to help my powder shadows pop.

Great tips Phoenix!

I had no idea there was such a thing as a shadow primer; I just thought I couldn't wear eyeshadow.

(I still don't think it looks very good on me, but I blame my poor application skills.)
Thank you for the reply. I have very oily lids and the original UDPP has worked well and matches my ski to e really well. I am tempted to try the UDPP in Sin even though the glimmer is a bit intimidating for daytime for me. I got a one-use sample and sort of liked it. I may buy a tube during Sephora sale and if I don't like it I will return it.

Hah!

Found it.

Okay, to resume:

Is that silver and auburn on your eye? Did you deliberately match your brow color or is that just a trick of the pic?

Also, I've been using MAC's eyebrow mascara as regular mascara (they have a great brown which comes off easily at night, something I like). Is there any reason I shouldn't, in your opinion?

Finally, what is someone with your skill choosing to be for Halloween? And will we see photos (yes I know I'm a total hypocrite when it comes to pics, but I swear, you are so much more photogenic than I am it's not even decent)?
The makeup in my avvie is purple and gold sparkle. So it must be a trick of the pic making the colors look different. I was doing my interpretation of the galaxy for a makeup contest.

There's no reason not to use brow set as mascara. It's safe for the eyes, which is the main thing.

Hee, I dont really do Halloween. So Im not dressing up. But if I were going to dress up Id be Mark Anthony, and Id get my friend to be JLo. I dont know if Id get amale friend or female friend though. Who are you going to be for Halloween?

Oh, you'd be a great JLo!

Did you win the contest? I'm sure you did.

Good news about that mascara: thanks!

I was just going to wear my Darth Vader mask which has a heavy breathing voice recording built in, but now that I'm driving to and from Detroit on Monday (to send the dog in my siggie to Seattle), I think I'll be missing my neighborhood celebration. It's okay: I'm in a strangely un-candy-ish mood lately.

I was thinking of driving home from Detroit in the mask, but could I get pulled over for it?
They havent announced the winners yet... fingers crossed!

Safe travels on monday. You have such a good heart.

But lol yes you would - and should - get pulled over for driving while darth vader.

I once saw a guy wearing a pumpkin head riding a motorcycle during morning rush hour on Halloween.

Fingers crossed for you!

Hi Phoenix! I just wanted to let you know that your eyebrow tips work fantastically! I've been using a stiff angle brush and matte finish brown eyeshadow. I'm able to get a softer more natural look that I'm happy with. Thanks so much for your help! You're the best!
Love your artistry in your avi!

Yes. And to add insult to injury, they just called me on a Sunday night to advise me the date of my hearing had changed. I paid the effing thing! Leave me alone. Grrrrrrr! When will this end?

Now, moving on..........

Why do so many products have shimmer in them? I tried on a matte makeup base ("wear alone or under base") today, and when I went back to my car, I saw that my skin was now flecked with shimmer. Why would a product that works to remove shine then add it to their products?

This red-around-the-nose consumer wants to know.
Have you determined why the ticket bothers you so? If you paid, why must you have a hearing?

They just hadn't received the check yet.

I'm dropping this matter. Thank you anyway.

So, what do you think about this trend toward shimmer in everything?
I am not Phoenix, but this trend with shimmer (and BLING in non-beauty-related products) irritates me to no end. I have oily skin so I don't need any help with the shine, and it makes the shine even worse when I do oil up, and as I age I hate that the shimmer settles in places I do not want it to.

This is how I feel.^

It's as if all products are tailored to magpies now.
LOL @ magpies.

Like you said, shimmer is a trend. So makeup companies have all jumped on the bandwagon.

(Glitter is a big trend too. There are entire companies dedicated to making glitter makeup). As you know, shimmer and oil provide different types of shine. Personally, I think using shimmer as a highlighter is a celeb MUA trick that the average person is getting hep to. It can give a nice glowy look. Plus, there are so many little girls buying making, to whom companies are trying to cater. Little girls love sparkle...
