    -I love quads because of how great they are for traveling! You don’t have to be really gentle with them either. I’ve dropped them several times and surprisingly, they’ve held up.

    -I’ve been feeling the nude lip so I wore Velvet Teddy last, with Prr lipglass over.

    -My minimal look isn’t very minimal but I am quick with this look. I use UD Surreal Skin Mineral Makeup. I do really winged out liner and lots of mascara. I use a neutral shadow and define my crease gently. Bronzer to contour and a bit of a peach or hot pink blush like Deep Throat or Tippy. I can’t stop using Palatial lipglass!

  74. Avatar of Chantale Macaddict

    1) Pots; I like to put them side by side or swatch them on hand/eyes to create my own combos. I find that palettes/quads are somewhat creatively limitimg because you have only so many to play with at a time.
    2) Make Up Forever in #203 (a vibrant hot pink)
    3) foundation, peachy blush, brows, black mascara, neutral l/s, neutral or peachy e/s, brown or black liner. I rarely do this minimal. I will pop a bright lip or a bright e/s.

  75. Avatar of Monica Monica

    1) Definitely Pallettes or I really don’t reach for the shadows otherwise
    2) MAC See Sheer
    3) Smashbox Brunette Brow Tech, for the eyes it’s a toss up between MAC Bare Canvas paint, MAC Shroom e/s, MAC Go e/s or MAC Painterly/Soft Orche p/p, Vanilla p/m, and Chocolate Brown p/m, Vincent Longo foundation, Dainty mineralized blush, and mascara

  76. Kat

    Do you prefer eyeshadows in pots, quads, or palettes?: Palettes mostly – take up less space and I can see all my options. I hate searching through all my pots for the right colour…time to de-pot!

    Last lipstick you wore?: Hmm…I haven’t worn lipstick in a long time, so I’ll say the last lipcolour I wore was VivaGlam V lipglass.

    What

  77. Do you prefer eyeshadows in pots, quads, or palettes?: 15 pan palettes. I don’t really like the premade palettes or quads so much.

    Last lipstick you wore?: High Tea.. with Live & Dye lipglass over top.

    What

  78. Julie

    I like pots. Indepentend colors. I really dislike the depotting thing. I try to swap for new colors, but they are all bepotted and most are broken. When I travel, I just select the colors I want, that match my destination. I re-arange my colors every time I get new ones, I can not do that in quads or palettes. Pots are their original home, they stay!

    Minimal look is one or two color light shadow and mascara and gloss, I will skip on eyeliner if i HAVE to.
