    That's where I bought it from, but you can really get those oils for a little more expensive at Michaels or something. Castor oil is like at walmart, just don't get the one made for being a laxative. They're stupid cheap though. I spent like $5 on my carrier oils and they've lasted me like 3 years and I'm still on the first mix of them.. so you really don't need all of what you end up buying.

    If you want to know what to mix, look up OCM methods.. and you can make up a nice, lovely oily concoction and it'll work for sure for make-up removal.

    It's really irritating alone, I'd use a mild carrier oil to mix it in with. I do use it pretty much straight on mosquito bites though. Tea tree is awesome, I stick it in hot water when I have a cold and hang out over it.

    Looking for some advice.

    See, I prefer keeping my eyeshadow fairly light these days. Was getting into liquid shadows I'd gotten samples of. Liked how the smooth application minimizes tugging on the delicate eye area. Been looking everywhere for a matte (no shine or shimmery crap) muted purple shadow. The closest I've come is this cream shadow by Maybelline 'Color Tattoo' 24hr eyeshadow line:



    While I love the color, the consistency of the shadow itself is very thick, almost stiff/waxy. Instructions on the Maybelline site suggest dabbing on the lids with your fingertips, but I felt like the thickness of the product made that kind of difficult to do without needlessly tugging on my lids. I also was trying to go for a sheer application, just a hint of color, which has been easy with other liquid shadows.


    Anyway - I'm not that well-versed when it comes to makeup. What'm I doing wrong with this one? Anyone have any good application tips for this sort of..texture? Again, I really hate doing anything that involves pulling on my eyelids too much- so I'm trying to figure out a gentle way to apply this stuff lightly, & evenly.

    Thanks in advance.

    I wouldn't use a finger, I would probably go with an angled eyeliner brush.



    I can't use anything but a powder anymore. It just causes too much tugging on my eyelids. That type of brush works well on both upper and lower lids.
    I like to rock n' roll all night and *part* of every day. I usually have errands... I can only rock from like 1-3.

    Elf and Clinique have some really creamy (non waxy) cream eye shadows. They also have some Matte powder shadows.

    @ceecee & @Codex - noted, and thanks. I have a brush like that - never used it. I'll try to warm it up with my hands and then maybe use the brush for blending & see what happens. & thanks for the brand recommendations, too. Seems like matte colors are hard to find beyond 'nude' earthy tones.


    *edit* - warming it up in my hands + applying a bit of a dimethicone-based primer to my eyelids exponentially improved application. A brush helped with blending at the crease.
    Thanks again, guys! (now I don't feel like I wasted $ on that eyeshadow)

    I’m not going to do a commercial..
    But for everyday makeup I don’t like sparkles or heavy pigments.
    I’ll just apply a my foundation lightly, a pink/orange blush, a gloss and light mascara.
    If I used eyeliners I’d use black and apply thin lines or underline my eyes with blue/green ones during summer.
    In parties I love to wear smoky eyes and red lipstick.
    Thats all I want to talk about for now.

    I prefer Matte Colours as well. It is difficult to find anything other than a few(similar in color) earthy nudes, so you are right.

    I found some "recommendations online" which seem really nice:

    Bobbi Brown-- they look gorgeous. Try them out on the back of your hand when you are in sephora.

    Sonia Kashuk- affordable, lovely, and super practical purchase.

    This is making me want to try new things with eye makeup... my everyday routine is mascara, liquid eyeliner (sort of cat-eye), and lip color, and that's it.
    and it's nice enough to

    Maybe I'm completely off-base and wrong on this.. but if you like it and just need it a little thinner, could you do something like mix it on a brush with a bit of eye lotion? It could thin it out and moisturize your eyes too... the moisturizer will set and the color will stay.

    this thread usually just makes me feel bad for not knowing anything about anything.
    My make up routine right now when I wear it (6-8 times a year) is a free sample of philosophy I have in a container BB cream, some powder that's way too old to be used still but I never buy more because I never use it, mascara, and some eye pencil and I trace under my lashes because I dont know how girls put the pencil just on top of the lower lashes without their eyes stinging and crying all night. Then lip gloss that I got for free from a sister I think. I don't even know how to apply eye colors without giving myself a black eye...

    Gah, sharing all this is making me realize I've become such a damn, girl.

    Ah well.

    Just wanted to post this.. I was surprised how well these worked.
    My skin get irritated REALLY easily when shaving. Legs/armpits/groin.

    These 2 products (ridiculously cheap) have been consistently awesome. I'm smooth for days, everywhere. No cuts/bumps/redness at all.

    CVS brand disposable razors:




    & this cheap shaving cream from the makers of Barbasol:



    I've found trial sizes of it at CVS for $1.49, & full-size bottles at the dollar store, & grocery store for $1.99.
    Can is rust-proof, too. Kind of a perk if rust stains in the shower bother you.


    For the nether regions, I use those^ 2 products in the shower, & apply this chafe relief gel immediately after drying off:



    From the makers of Monistat - but it is not a yeast infection treatment. The packaging would probably garner more attention if it didn't resemble that medication, & if they shelved it further away from their main products, but, oh well. You can get $2-off coupons for this product on their site. Reviews on drugstore.com are pretty accurate. Apparently this has become a secret makeup primer for a bunch of people (read reviews on drugstore.com & makeupalley). Comparable to Smashbox primer & some other high end ones. It's primarily dimethicone & some other silicone agents. Whatever you use it for, it keeps things super soft & reduces irritation. Not greasy at all, either. Dries to a powder-finish, almost. Encouraging people to try this stuff so they don't discontinue it, haha.


    As for a post-shower body moisturizer, I've become a fan of Olay Quench body lotion. Really lightweight/fast absorbing, mild scent. Lot of niacinamide & vitamin E in it. I don't use this on top of the chafe-relief gel in the bikini area, though. I find that it causes irritation, but only in that area- so I avoid contact, there.


    Welp, that's it.
