  • One Interesting Fact About Me
    I lived in China as a missionary for three years. Then I moved home, became Goth (but kept the Christian faith), and finally got married. Appearances are, indeed, deceiving.

  1. Hi folks! I have a question regarding the end-life of a vegan pressed powder containing talc. I was reaching the end of my Manic Panic Anemic pressed powder, to the point that there was only a bit left on the side. When I tried to use it with the applicator (a round sponge), it came loose and broke apart. Now, my question is this: Is that little bit still safe to use, if I use it as I would a loose powder? Or is it not salvageable? (Or, alternatively, could I just add some moisturizer to it to create a kind of liquid foundation?) I *HATE* being wasteful, so even though I'm not intending to use this product long-term, I *would* still like to use it up. Thanks for reading!

It better be gold and silver seeds for that price! lol
  8. I use make-up somewhat sporatically, but trying to get back into it. I'm going to go ahead and wager a guess that I wouldn't want to spend more than $40 a month, if I could get away with it. How long does most make-up last anyways, if you use the same thing every day? EDIT: I've always been a bit of a miser when it comes to spending money on beauty products, but now I'm trying to do all the research I can to find out what products are worth spending the big bucks on. But it has to be really, REALLY worth it.

Make sure you gently exfoliate every few days or so and see if doing these things make any difference. If they don't then I would recommend what Deareux suggested and possibly consider seeing a dermatologist just so you can get definite answers I can try to list a few moisturizers that I've found to be great for drying/itching skin. What type of price range do you have? The past couple of days, I've just been using the jojoba oil I have, and that seems to help. Still wish these stupid pimples would go away though. Price range is, preferably, no more than $10; I'm a miser when it comes to beauty products, but my hubby recently said he wouldn't mind if I spent a bit more, as long as it's worth it. But I'd LOATHE spending $50 on something like Clinique only to find it doesn't work. I could use some advice on some good exfoliants, too, but I'm not 100% sure what they do. lol I know they...unclog pores..? I think?
  10. It's late and I don't have a camera right now, but here's what I'm wearing: Face: -- Manic Panic's Anemic pressed powder Eyes: -- Black mascara from Neutrogena -- "Fangbanger" eye shadow from CrushCosmetics on Etsy
  11. Hrmm... Well, it depends largely on how awake I am in the morning, what I have to do that day (work? school? bumming around?), etc. If I've got to go to school or work, I try to start getting ready about 30 minutes before I leave, so I have enough time not to have to rush through the make-up thing. Also gives me about 10 minutes to pick out something to wear, wear it for five minutes, realize I hate it, and decide to change it. Make-up by itself doesn't take long...if I remember everything I'm trying to. x_x;;; (I need a morning checklist; I always forget moisturizer.) EDIT: Showering at night to save time wouldn't do any good, since I tend to wake up sweaty regardless. And I *hate* feeling sweaty and icky. x_x;;; When I shower, it can easily add 10 to 20 minutes to my get-ready time.

If you are experiencing allergies along with the itching, try benadril before bed to help with the symptoms. If it's not allergy related nor is it due to dry skin, maybe a visit to your dermatologist will help if the itchiness continues. Yeah, I have a suspicion it could be related to my allergies; my sinuses always go NUTS when the seasons change. Taking a benadryl before bed isn't half a bad idea!
  13. Hey! I'm in the Deep South in the States, so...yeah. Humidity Country. lol

I myself live in a high-humidity, high-heat area and know EXACTLY what you mean. If I may ask, what type of moisturizer do you use? and does the itching continue on days when you don't wear makeup? Happy Makeuping! Cookie Hey Cookie! I honestly don't know what kind of moisturizer to use right now. I have some Cetaphil lotion that I've been mixing with jojoba oil, but I stopped using it as well when the itching started. :/ (I hadn't been using it long; a couple of days, maybe?) I'm thinking of trying whatever Neutrogena has available, if I can find some for a good price. I *did* notice today that the itching starts after I've been out in the heat for a while. On my head and under my arms are other places where I feel it. So annoying! *sigh* Why does this all have to be so confusing? lol
