Blushes. I am not a fan of wearing anything face products wise with the exception of face powder. I just don’t care for it. But I secretly want Nars Exhibit A.

Mascara. I’ve only bought one and only cuz it was a beautiful purple. I hate the TINIEST clump. I also hate how most just looks creepy on. I might just end up buying false lashes if anything.

I am with you on false eyelashes! I read about them a lot on Japanese fashion blogs and in Japanese fashion magazines but it’s wayyyy too much trouble for me.

And I’m with all of you who say false lashes. They are so pretty on some women but I end up looking like a Vegas Showgirl no matter what.

interesting question. i admire a lot of concealers and foundations even though i know how sensitive my skin is. i’ve been wanting to try nars’ foundation as well as mufe hd again for quite some time now… as well as eve pearl’s salmon concealers.

If I can give one pece of advice: just try. πŸ™‚

I have very sensisitve skin as well, and had given up on foundations, but I gave it a try thanks to a nice MUA, and I’m glad I did.
Some foundations claiming to be formulated for sensitive skin have damaged my skin, and “regular” foundations did good. You cannot trust claims. You just have to try. πŸ™‚

Definitely Liquid eyeliner. I love the strong bold look people create with liquid liner, but I’ve tried and tried and tried, but I’ve never been able to get a hold of it.

I never use eyelash curlers either! I am lucky to have long eyelashes anyways, but those things just seem like medieval torture devices and yes, they don’t seem to make much difference.

Anyways, I’ve never even tested a bronzer and wouldn’t dream of buying one. I’m super pale, one might call it “pasty”, and there’s just no way that that stuff is ever going to work on me.

They make a huge difference on Asians though. Most Asians don’t have curled eyelashes, they’re either straight or point downwards, and an eyelash curler really makes a difference πŸ™‚

Hi, been lurking a long time, but just had to respond to this since I was cleaning out my stash. Totally second false eyelashes! I have a few pairs I bought intending to try, but I’m too chicken πŸ˜›

cee bee certainly asks alot of questions….the beauty cremes by sisley, estee lauder, la prairie, cle de peu, guerlain,…all the high end cosmetics face cremes…except for Santa Maria Novella.

Bold colored eyeshadows like NARS Rated R. They look really pretty on the pans but I know I am not going to wear them.

Cream bronzers and highlighters. They look soo beautiful, like NARS Multiples, etc.. But cream products just don’t work well for my oily skin, except maybe a cream under-eye concealer. Also blushes in any form because as a guy, blush just looks gross on me. No matter how sheer, what color, or what application technique, they just make me look completely unnatural; I look like a clown. It’s seriously scary stuff. xD

i feel like i should give up on liquid liners, falsies, liquid blush/eyeshadows. But I love looking and looking often translates to impulse buying πŸ™

I have SUPER oily skin and it’s extremely acne prone BUT I love NARS creme blushes. They are a good creme to powder consistency but they still feel light on the skin. I also love tarte cheek stains. They leave a really nice flush to the face WITHOUT sitting on top of your skin.

I had been wondering about the Tarte cheek stains! Maybe I’ll check them out the next time I’m at Sephora…

For me it’s primer. Maybe I just haven’t found one that would work for me. I don’t have oily skin but they all feel really greasy.

Frosty shadows and pigments. I love how they looked swatched on my hand but I KNOW they’ll make my 47 year old eyelids look as wrinkled as crumpled paper.

Mineralize Skinfinishes! They are so pretty and colorful but would just make me look more oily…

The trick is just placing highlighters where they belong…high on the cheekbones…MSF’s are a great investment if you want a great highlighter.

Lip stick! I have lots of glosses in my repetoire but I am terrified to wear lipstick- I’m afraid of looking too made up or chosing colours that don’t suit.
