    Hmm...that sounds like something I may try.

    Has anyone used Urban Decay De-Slick Mattifying Gel? I got a sample from Sephora, but it's such a small amount, I'm not sure if I should buy the full-size. It seemed like it may have made a difference.

    Brown should be corrected with most FSU of all colors: purple! (more like lavender...)
    Go into Sephora or a MAC store and have them try some combinations on you, it's worth looking into it.

    A transparent base coat will prevent the nails from getting stained. They also make the polish last longer.

    I love wearing blue nail polish. Other wild colours, no, but dark blues are awesome. Especially with a matte top coat on top!

    Has anyone else heard of Tightlining? I'd like to give it a whirl, but it sounds like it's more complicated than I thought.

    What's the deal with formaldehyde in eyelash adhesives? And when do they expire? I've thrown the box of my Duo like 4 years ago after purchasing it and I've used it probably 5 times in total but I I think I've read I should toss it after max 2 years, da?
    Also, I'm thinking to get the Marini Lash Eyelash Conditioner. A bit on the fence because of the price and because I have sensitive eyes on this one though. You can tell my eyelashes are not my strong point

    My China Glaze Calypso Blue arrived today. Can't wait to try it on but will probably not happen until Friday.

    I have, but I refuse to line the inside of my eyes...plus, I wear contacts so I have to be extra careful with my eye makeup.

    I have recent starting doing weekly manicures again--I got out of the habit about 6-7 years ago, but now I treat myself to a new color every Sunday night.

    My latest mascara rave is Cover Girl Clump Crusher, it's the new Lash Blast creation. It is AWESOME! I don't like any of the other Lash Blast mascaras, but this one is a keeper.

    I have tried the Maybelline BB cream (got it for about half price, couldn't turn it down for that price), and got a sample of Annabelle's BB cream (Canadian brand only?)

    They both had a bit of a drying effect for me, so I still use a separate moisterizer underneath. The Maybelline is lighter/sheerer, I have to layer a bit to cover my redness. It's probably the cheapest of the brands, but not bad and it comes in 5 shades (some only come in two).

    The Annabelle BB seemed to have a bit more coverage. And I never knew Annabelle is made by Marcelle. There's a $3 coupon on their site now, might pick up their BB for when I use up the Maybelline.

    I thought a BB cream would work for good skin times (haven't had a major breakout in months, yay, knock on wood), when I don't actually need foundation.

    See if you can get samples if you're thinking of trying it. Wish I could afford Clinique.

    I didn't realize Annabelle and Marcelle were from the same company! I don't buy either very often, but what I've tried, I've really liked.

    I LOVE my Midnight Cami toenails. I think I'll be brave and do my fingenails today.

    I was at Sephora last night and had a look at their Cinderella nail polish line. Very disappointing.... very heavy on the glitter and shimmer.

    Okay... it was the colours that were disappointing, not the glitter and shimmer.
