Weirdest product: toss up between the Monistat anti-chafing cream (NOT yeast infection cream) as a face primer (kinda like Smashbox photofinish) and eyebrow gel. I use it…but I don’t know if it makes a difference.

Last product I NEEDED: New mascara. I want to try that tubing mascara by blinc, but I just don’t want to shell out the money for it….I think I ended up just getting LashBlast.

Product I want but can’t have: I really want China Glaze’s “Recycle” but I can’t find it anywhere. Any advice?

I just couldn’t get myself to try the Monistat on my face, just no way!

Have you tried or

Hey! About the products you want, I’m think that reflects teal (maybe transparent teal…I’m not sure) is a pro item which you can order over the phone from them. Also, I think you should definitely see if you can find a Cosmetics Company Outlet near you. In my local one, I have seen ALL of the McQueen paint pots and several discontinued pigments. Good luck!

Weirdest item: .99 cent black liquid liner … just don’t try it 🙂

Last item: The last time I went to MAC I got refills on my studio fix powder, refined golden bronzer, and fling eye brow pencil

Product I want but can’t have: MUFE HF foundation and powder. I need to finish up my Estee Lauder and MAC foundations first.

Weirdest: Ojon conditioner. OK ok, I know it’s a very popular product, but it is WEIRD because it smells like cigarette butts floating in old coffee, or something. weird!

Needed: Moisturizer…cold weather has arrived here! I got Logona’s Free moisture cream.

Can’t have: hmm…maybe Nars Zulu nail polish? Or the purple Fafi paint pot.

Weirdest: Umm….can’t think of anything weird. Maybe my bright Ben Nye yellow and orange eyeshadows, because I don’t usually wear really bold eye looks.

Needed: Nail polish remover, if that counts. i was all out and needed to redo my toes.

Can’t have: Almost everything lately – gotta be better about not spending so much.

1. Chartruese Gloss from MAC. I love Chartruese, but it’s something in my kit that never gets used and applies thicker than I expected or like. I’ll find use for it one day though.

A close second is MAC’s Eyeglass in Tarmac, released long before I became interested in the brand. I do get use out of this when I want to do a greasy, smoky black eye- the epitome of the once beloved heroin chic.

2. Where to begin…

New foundation, cotton balls, nail polish remover, a decent eye shader brush…

I did pick up some empty spray bottles, so I’m at least doing something. That and some essential neutral and matte eyeshadows.

3. YSL Pur Black gloss. I can’t justify spending that amount of money on something I’ll rarely use.

YSL uses lead in their lip products – I was told by a birdie who works for the company…. cause I mentioned that I wanted it after seeing it here,,,,,

Lead in lipsticks isn’t really an issue, IMO! It seems mostly propelled by instilling fear. Not to say you can’t make a lead-free lipstick, but the amount of lead found in lipsticks is so trace that you will encounter more in your day to day life.

weirdest product: maybelline primer which its not exactly weird per say but it did nothing it says.. haha

last product: eyeliner… I have like 10 but yet I want more! haha

product I want: damn this going to be a long list. MAC 187, MAC Pigments, MAC Minerlize Blush, NARS Super Orgasm.
