I had to return Soom Lash. I idnd't like it obvisouly.

I got:

-Engraved eye pencil

-Stubborn brown powerpoint eye pencil

-Beaded e/s.

I also got YSL Touche eclat. But I'm gonna return it. There was a lady there today who is their MUA and she put it on me. I wanted to try it since everyone raves about it. When I was driving home, I looked in my rearview mirror... It freakin creased in my wrinkles and looked horrible! Since it made my undereye lighter, the crease was obviously darker. Yeah, you can smooth it out, but who wants to do that? Eventually it would just rub away since I would have to blend it all the time. So if a MUA applied it and it didn't work, it's not gonna work when I do it.

I've officially given up on concealers! I did before this one, but I'm for sure now!

Nice haul Liz!

Whats your take on the powerpoint pencils? Better staying power than fluidlines?

I think they are pretty darn close... mine stay on all day long. No budging! I just can't sit there for 10 min. an eye to get a straight line w/ the fluidlines... I'm used to *and much better* with a pencil - so I love these... Honestly I haven't used my fluidlines since I got them.. I'm going to have to use them soon for something - dont want them to go to waste either... but I like the pencils better for me - right now I have the black & brown... now i want MORE!

if you smudge out the line a bit it doesn't need to be perfect anyway. that's what i have been doing lately. smudging out my fluidline line a bit i really like how it looks

i usually use dark shadows as my liners, and I returned my fluidlines. i needed something to line my lower inner rims. the MUA said that the powerpoints were the best ones for that, better than the fluidlines since the fluidlines aren't waterproof or something. my eyes water a little so when i do the shadow, it disappears like 5 seconds later!

i've never used pencils before
and i really like lining with the angled brush. but i need the staying power of the powerpoint. I gotta get used to it and practice!

i tried the minted pencil i bought... lol. i did the right eye ok, the left one was a whole different story!
. it was probably because i was using a handheld mirror, so i couldn't get it right

I line my lower inner rims with the fluidlines and haven't had an issue at all.

lol. yeah, it's getting big. i'm going to get another traincase for my piggies, lip stuff, and blush stuff. i'll keep my face stuff and eyeshadows in my original one. hehe. i just have to calm it down now. i'm gonna wait till the new mac collections come out. i'll probably just get the eye shadows from those.

I like the Engraved pencils. They work well. I had YSL Touche eclat before but the brush went bad and it didn't last on my combo/oily skin too long. I've heard great things about Bobbi Brown concealers. Have you tried Bobbi Brown concealers? I haven't tried them myself but I've heard huge raves.

I haven't tried them myself but I've heard huge raves. i bought the BB compact to go, but i didn't use it and ended up selling it on ebay. it's not that the stuff doesn't cover up dark circles, it's just that ALL concealers crease in my under eye wrinkles
. if the YSL MUA applied it right and used all their products, and it still creased, then it's not gonna work when I do it! lol. it creased like 30 mins after she did it too. so i've officially given up on concealers. oh well.

My friends hate shopping with me because they always ask me "should I get this (fill in the blank?" and I usually say yes. I am no good at talking them out of buying something, unless it is truly horrific.
