    I wanted to let everyone know that the makeup forever aqua line has been changed. In some ways for the better, in some ways not so much! I just went to refill some of my stuff last night.

    They are dicontinuing the Aqua cream. This was applied to your eyes using either a brush or your finger. It would work well for a few months but then dry out and become flakey when you used it after that. It lasts me about a year and I did use it a lot.



    They used to have these big chubby underwater sticks that sucked! lol You had to push them really hard to get them to go on, limited color selection, and they were a weird size that required a more specific and more expensive sharpener. I had used them because they were less messy and good for detailing.

    They replaced them with this one which I just bought and love. No sharpening, more like a marker, stays on super well (I tested in the shower) more color selection



    They just launched their new artist shadow. You can get a good price in store when you buy 2 or more. It has brilliant colours, but isn't water proof unless you apply it with the aqua seal.



    I got two and I LOVE them!!!

    Everyone needs to check out Morphe Brushes, at morphebrushes.com You can get an adorable pink and turquoise 10 piece set with a case for only $20. That means it's only $2.00 per brush and they throw in the case for free!!!! Also, hey, what do you know! They can automatically convert to British Pound Sterling and Euros!
    Not into vegan brushes? They have a real Italian Badger 7 piece mini set for only $16.00; comes with a case too. Although for cream products, you should take a look at more of the brushes that say "taklon" than natural fiber brushes.
    They also have makeup! Woohoo!!!! As soon as I can, I'm spending some hard-earned minimum wage on this. Or I'll wait for my tax refund.

    YAY! A convert!!!!!!! I've looked at a lot of Sigma brushes and brushes from Real Techniques, but a lot of them are expensive and mimic real hair brushes. Which isn't quite what you need for cream products. But look! Here you get an even spread of fluffy brushes and smooth brushes. Or you can buy individual ones to fill out the brushes you already have in your repertoire! Look at the Badger ones:

    If you need a specific brush, search by type of brush. Some of them are as low as $1.69.

    Real techniques is amazing and I don't know how anyone could call them expensive. I find that a lot of the brushes that come in super cheap packs like that are useless after a few washes. Real techniques and it Cosmetics brushes are the best I've used.

    Let me clear that up! I can understand why what I said was confusing. Sorry I got some Real Techniques brushes from my friend after she used them all of.... twice, because she got a really nice set from Sephora for Christmas. Got a nice spread too, in terms of fluffy vs. smooth. Washed them the first time with some baby shampoo (for the ones that had been used for cream products) and some high-end Mary Kay brush cleaner (for the fluffy ones that only were used in, like, translucent powder), dried them, and found that some had quite a bit of fallout. I highly suspect it's because alot of them were the retractable, throw-and-go kind and I don't know how my friend really treated them--just throwing them into a handbag or something.
    I got some extra FREE brushes out the deal to fill out my set of Mary Kay ones (Kat works for MK and I got the old--new in 2006--set for my birthday that year). The way I broke down the prices for Real Techniques in terms of replacing them is quite a few more dollars for each brush then going to Morphe Brushes.

    Soitanly--as Curley would say--I know exactly what you're talking about, Raayvhen, with the fact that they aren't as expensive as a lot of brushes out there. I am definitely going to check out Morphe Brushes and report back with all the facts! Plus, I'll have Mary Kay, ecoTools, and Real Techniques to compare them too. And I've never heard of it Cosmetics. I will check them out, too, because your mod winged liner in your profile pic is super adorable and more en pointe than Misty Copeland! <3

    Hi I'm new here. I have a suggestion on mascara. I took Tarte waterproof mascara for a swim for 20 laps in a pool, and it didn't run at all. It's the toughest waterproof out there. It's available through Sephora.

    I bought UD cannonball last week and went swimming with it over the weekend. It held up great, no smudging or flaking or anything. I was very impressed.

    Wanted to sound off over here as I've been testing some different waterproof stuff. Here are my findings.

    NYX waterproof eyebrow base - DOES NOT BUDGE. I've used my normal brow powder and tested some purple eyeshadow (to match a purple wig) over it on my eyebrows and that stuff is SWIM PROOF. seriously, so if your looking for a good base for brows that's the one.

    NYX waterproof eye shadow base - seems to work well, I used it in conjunction some powder shadows (ben nye and urban decay) with some Ben Nye Liquid set over the top.

    Elf Waterproof eyeliner - This does not even stand up to the under the faucet on my hand challenge. not worth the 2 bucks. Even with liquid set and and a setting spray

    Stila waterproof liquid liner - Ok with the ben nye liquid set over the top, its still my favorite liner so im going to try it with some MFE Aqua Seal when
    I find it. Still rubs off after a while too.

    Ben Nye Liquid Set - I use as a sealer and as a glitter fix, it works well enough, but dose not help my eyeliner stay on it seems. sigh.

    Now that I actually have time I'll add my two cents!

    Eyeliner:
    Urban Decay waterproof= Flakes off after a few laps
    MAC LiquidLast Liner = I've gone lake and pool swimming and it doesn't come off without remover the day after BEST LINER

    Mascara:
    Urban Decay Cannonball does the trick for sure

    Lipstick:
    Aqua Rouge by Makeup Forever stays on all day as long as you don't eat or moisturize it seems. I need to actually go swimming in it.

    I definitely have no idea about anything foundation, concealer, or brow related :C

    Most makeup wipes will say if they remove waterproof makeup or not!
