    [–] PSA: "Not eye safe" glitter lives up to it's warning label, a repost Evayne 4 points ago in MakeupRehab

    There are a lot of glitters that are not eye safe, I've never said anything to the contrary.

    Non US countries consider cosmetics grade (<150microns) glitter safe. Biodegradable is a requirement for the environment, not safety.

    [–] PSA: "Not eye safe" glitter lives up to it's warning label, a repost Evayne 7 points ago in MakeupRehab

    What I'm saying is that when something is compliant with laws in the rest of the world, but not with the FDA, it's very much a personal decision. As European, I put more stock into EU regulations than the FDA.

    Biodegradable cosmetics grade glitter complies with EC Regulation 1223/2009 on cosmetics.

    [–] PSA: "Not eye safe" glitter lives up to it's warning label, a repost Evayne -6 points ago in MakeupRehab

    As it states in the thread I linked. To me, FDA approval is not necessarily synonymous with eye safe, though. That's a personal decision.

    [–] Pat McGrath Palettes 🎨 Evayne 3 points ago in makeupflatlays

    Oh sorry, it's not my blog, I should've clarified! But I agree, she has very high quality content. :) I actually found her looking for some PMG inspiration, haha.

    [–] Pat McGrath Palettes 🎨 Evayne 5 points ago * (lasted edited 16 hours ago) in makeupflatlays

    I'm not OP, but I have 6 of her palettes, and use them nearly every day. They're surprisingly versatile and adapt well to every day looks (though obviously some colors are best skipped for daytime office wear).

    I do supplement a transition shade from my collection, since most of her palettes don't have a transition shade that works for pasty people.

    III is one of my favorites and there are a lot of subtle looks you can do with it.

    [–] TMO Pat McGrath Mothership V Evayne 4 points ago in MakeupRehab

    Neither of these are available as singles unfortunately. None of the special shades are.

    [–] Quantity vs. Quality. Anyone else wish that Ipsy's "Ultimate Bag" was less product and more high-end stuff? Evayne 41 points ago in BeautyBoxes

    Sub boxes are all about working out contracts with retailers. The top tier brands have a lot less to gain from a contract with a sub box, so it's unlikely we'll see a lot of them. Wouldn't complain if it happened though.

    This is the most Canadian thread.

    [–] Anyone get the short list survey today? Evayne 6 points ago in Influenster

    Haha no, this one was really tricky. After a while of no luck, I googled some of the gemstone shade names in apostrophes and that site popped up - but it popped up on the foundation index. It made me curious because if it popped up on the foundation index, there had to be a name match somewhere, so I manually went through foundations until I found it.

    [–] Anyone get the short list survey today? Evayne 9 points ago in Influenster

    My survey was a few days ago, but if it's this foundation, then it's Shiseido's new Synchro Skin Self-refreshing foundation (launches Sept 1st).

    [–] Another viewpoint of influenster in this sub... Evayne 4 points ago in BeautyBoxes

    Everything on beauty subs is a commercial, you're just applying it selectively to influenster.

    [–] Another viewpoint of influenster in this sub... Evayne 95 points ago in BeautyBoxes

    Agree completely. I trust Reddit reviews sliiiightly more than reviews on Sephora/etc, so it's nice to get another PoV on products I may be interested in.

    Plus, it makes me happy to see other people being happy.

    [–] Suggest a Product Sunday Evayne 7 points ago in muacjdiscussion

    I swear by this innisfree powder. Keeps me matte/satin almost all day even though I have combo skin, and does not cake at all. Translucent.

    [–] What’s your favorite eyeshadow palette to travel with? Evayne 24 points ago in muacjdiscussion

    Laura Mercier Boheme Chic. It might not look like much in the pan, but uhh... Those clay shades make the most effortless and gorgeous smokey eye. I actually emailed them to ask if they have a similar formula I can buy as a single, but no go.

    Plus, it's tiny and has a good mirror.

    [–] CBD in makeup. How does everyone feel about it? Evayne 28 points ago * (lasted edited 15 days ago) in muacjdiscussion

    It's much more abrasive than mica (which is the ingredient in Crest whitening toothpastes)

    There's also a concern of carcinogens, but not enough data/studies are currently available. Here's the quote though:

    Sepetdjian and colleagues performed mass spectro- metric analysis of lump charcoal and found the presence of 15 polyaromatic hydrocarbons. Alarmingly, 4 of these substances (naphthalene, benzo [a]pyrene, dibenz[a,h] anthracene, indeno[1,2,3-cd]pyrene) are listed in the 2016 National Toxicology Program database as "reasonably anticipated to be human carcinogens.”

    Of course, same with charcoal, biotin, many things. Personally I'm more mad that charcoal toothpaste is a thing, because it ruins the enamel.

    [–] CBD in makeup. How does everyone feel about it? Evayne 42 points ago * (lasted edited 15 days ago) in muacjdiscussion

    The post I replied to asked about skincare as well.

    With that said, hemp-derived cbd is legal whereas marijuana-derived cbd is not. The difference is that hemp plants have a max content of 0.3% THC. If you were to ingest at least 1000mg of hemp-derived cbd, there's about a 22% chance that you might fail a drug test. However, cosmetics have a mere fraction of that, and skin absorption is yet another fraction of direct ingestion, so there's basically not a chance in hell a mascara would show up on a drug test.

    I mean, I can understand not wanting products with cbd in them. Personally I neither want to try them nor am I put off by their existence. Just saying they're not gonna make you fail a drug test.

    [–] CBD in makeup. How does everyone feel about it? Evayne 59 points ago in muacjdiscussion

    There's some evidence that topical cbd application is useful in treating eczema/psoriasis and other itchy skin conditions. Not a ton of studies done on the topic at present though.

    [–] Do you have any premade eyeshadow palettes for which you like and use every shade? Evayne 44 points ago in muacjdiscussion

    I'm only interested in a palette when I'm reasonably certain I'll be able to use and like most if not all shades, so thankfully I don't have many duds. Ones where I love and use every shade:

    • Pat McGrath: Mothership I & III & V, and the minis Platinum Bronze, La Vie En Rose, Bronze Temptation.

    • Kevyn Aucoin Nude Pop

    • Viseart Liaison

    [–] Comparing Colourpop: main squeeze, strawberry shake, Ooh lala palettes 🎨 Evayne 22 points ago in swatchitforme

    This is disappointing - but in a good way. Colourpop markets to the teens/early 20s crowd, I think it's really useful for them to see that you don't need every release to get the same effect.

    That said, they're all very pretty!

    [–] My collection of singles (mostly indie) Evayne 2 points ago in Indiemakeupandmore

    They're both green reds! WW is greener and less shiny when the light hits it, Red Chameleon is redder and more shiny when the light hits it.

    Swatches, WW on top, RC on bottom in both of them

    [–] Is stylevana legit? Evayne 2 points ago * (lasted edited 22 days ago) in AsianBeauty

    The Arizona address is just godaddy's proxy for privatizing your domain registry. IE, it's what shows up when you tell GoDaddy that you want the registration to stay anonymous and don't want your name and address to show on the lookup. Most people use a service like that for domain registration.

    Relevant bits:

    Registry Registrant ID: Not Available From Registry 

    Registrant Name: Registration Private 

    Registrant Organization: Domains By Proxy, LLC 

    Registrant Street: 

    Domains by Proxy (DBP) is an Internet company owned by GoDaddy founder Bob Parsons. It offers domain privacy services through partner domain registrars such as Go Daddy and Wild West Domains. Subscribers list Domains by Proxy as their administrative and technical contacts in the Internet's WHOIS database, thereby delegating responsibility for managing unsolicited contacts from third parties and keeping the domains owners' personal information secret. However, the company will release a registrant's personal information in some cases, such as by court order [1][2] or for other reasons as deemed appropriate by the company per its Domain Name Proxy Agreement.[2].
