Would anybody object to having a thread here where we could come and put random questions for anyone to answer? Random, sort of trivial but not really questions we would like an answer to but just need a quickie answer is anyone knows? Questions like, "Does anyone know the name of the shadows in NYX Cosmetics' 'Jazz Night' pallette (SP?)?"
I think this is a great idea. I have a few questions brewing already.
This thread exists. I will bump it for you.

I love opening and using a brand new bottle of nail polish. And last night I saw my first lightning bug of the year.

They were too severe before. They made her look like The Grinch:

Yeah but if that's the case there were already like 2 other pics of her "severe" brows... actual pictures of HER with them... not really a need for a Mrs Obama look-a-like.

Just saying...

I agree with you, TNB. I tried to find a pic myself, and noted that her natural brows really do have that extreme arch.

How was this change made? Are they less heavily penciled? Or simply differently penciled?

Goodness... most women that work the makeup counter do not really know the first thing about makeup. But it's pretty comical watching and listening to them pretend. And a red undertone seems to be a foreign concept to some of them.. not everyone has a yellow or olive undertone...SMH. And not every WOC wears NC45...

And not every pasty person needs the NC15. I wear NW, thanks. My undertones are pretty strongly pink.

What brand are these colors you're describing? Are they universal shades, like zones for plants?

(Never mind --- looked it up.)

Her MUA says she "retrained" MO's brows to be less angular, but she wont say how she did it. From very old pics, it appears MO had very full brows. So she could have just let them grow back in. Then she wouldve had a lot more hair to work with and could reshape them how she wanted. Ive done that and it only took a summer. In the interim, I penciled in my brows. Covering any stray hairs with concealer works great too.

Some Latino women should be given a tutorial before they are allowed to purchase an eyebrow pencil. Cuz in all reality, that "I just filled in my brows with a Sharpie" look is soo overrated and I can't take ur face seriously when ur talking to me.

Darn you, Smashbox! My first foray into your lipsticks was the Be Legendary line. I bought several. Every one, a disappointment. I tried Mandarin today, and just like Legendary, it was nothing more than a glorified lip balm. Not enough color payoff, very short wear time, sticky and waxy feeling. Not worth the money. Luckily, the product whore I am, I got my NYX order in and the Smashbox was promptly replaced on my face by the Black Label Lipstick Extreme Red. I am doing better now. Can be productive today.

I have been SERIOUSLY sleeping on Revlons lipsticks. I am LOVING a few new colors that I picked up during Ulta's buy 2 get 1 free sale recently. I also got some of the lipbutters and now I see the hype. Not a lipstick, not a gloss but a very nice middle point. These I'd prob wear on weekends when I want a sheer color. Very Nice!

In Revlons lipsticks I got: Violet Frenzy, Wild Orchard, and Va Va Violet.

In the lipbutters I got : Lolipop, Tuti Fruitie, Fig Jam, Raspberry pie, gum drop, and sugar plum

I didn't really like the lip butters, but the name sure is charming.

I don't feel like putting on makeup today, but I have to.

I'm too crabby for mascara.

Yeah.. I'm addicted to the Revlon Lipsticks and Revlon Lip Butters. I got a whole drawer full of them. I'm very pleased with the quality of Revlon Lip products and the fun colors. Definitely the best drugstore lipsticks I've used in years.
