Best eye shadow? - Page 2

post #26 of 34
Thread Starter 
Well, I just got back from the Mac counter and they made me look like a hooker. I should have known it was bad because my husband was watching the whole time with a funny look on his face. He said that everyone would think that he beat me up. It was really awful looking. Instead of a thin layer of eyeliner the lady made a line that was so thick I could barely see my eyelid.

I did buy a few eyeshadows but not the black, blue and grey shit that she caked on my eyes. It seems that every sinlge time I go to the makeup counter I look like this. I give up!

Lol...I feel ya. Ask one of the people for a really subtle look, then they'll stick to neutrals on you--worked for me

MAC kinda scares me. I am satisfied trying every other line, so I have stayed away from them. But on MUA, it is definitely the leader in popularity

^^hehe I just got into swapping the last few months!! It's a lot of fun but actually it starts to add $$$ up, between the postage, delivery confirmation all that stuff. Some people have hundreds of tokens, I don't even get how they afford to do that.

There are complaints that MAC doesn't know how to do subtle. For beautiful neutrals I love Bobbi Brown, Smashbox, and Laura Mercier. You can't go wrong w/ any of those 3 brands. Bobbi Brown to me is especially "classy" and nice!

oh, you don't need to get DC and stuff like that..I use less than $1 for each package..I think I've only spent $25 for like...60 swaps lol. I think it's definitely worth it..I think my MU collection is worth a 100x more

I only have 3 shadows from MAC, all neutrals, but I have to agree with everything you said, I LOVE smashbox shadows

Too bad you ladies with make-up troubles can't come visit me at the Lancome counter!!!! We truly have some amazing colors that can be used wet or dry, and I must say I have never had a customer disappointed with the look I gave them.

My advice when going to a counter: tell the person what your looking for. Never say: "Surprise me!" or "Whatever you think!" Cause what I think would look good doesn't necessarily make you feel good about yourself and therefore would never work out for you. You can go in asking for a new look but I would suggest specifying whether you want a daytime, nighttime, natural, conservative, or just everyday fun look. You don't want to give is free reign or we can go crazy as sultrysiren learned.

Let me know if you guys have any questions. More than happy to help!
