    Physician's Formula bronzers are BOGO free at Rite Aid this week (I'm in NYC). Never tried them, but this is the best time to try any cosmetics, when one is free, lol.

    ...bronzer doesn't cause "shine" does it? I'm not trying to have a reflective forehead. :P

    Make-up wise, I use Meow Cosmetics for foundation and their eye-shadows. I may buy their bronzer during their next sale. Before that I used drugstore makeup, mostly Maybelline, Revlon, Max Factor mascara, CG, and Physician's Formula. I still use PF's mascara.

    Nails, I have a bunch of different ones, Avon mostly. I don't do my fingernails much anymore, but I do paint my toes.

    Exercise right now, I just walk around the block a couple of times in the morning. I'm going to try and do other exercise during the week but I haven't decided what kind. Used to do Pilates a lot but I'm starting to get a little bored with it. Probably should get some new dvds or something.

    HTH
    ^^ Hmm really? I picked up a few shadows a few years ago and wasn't that impressed. Maybe I will revisit.

    Which ones did you try? I got a bunch of samples of their Egyptian Treasures line and I ended up getting the Giza eyeshadow. I also have the Feliner shadow in Aristocatic. I plan on getting the Wildchild: ROFL shadow during the next sale and maybe some bronzer, but I'm not sure which one. Foundation wise, I wear Fierce Mau but I can also wear Fierce Sphynx and I also have their primer and finishing powder. HTH.

    Went to a seperate Sephora this past weekend, after buying so Lush stuff. There still wasn't a lot of WOC foundations to pick from. I think MUFE had the most.

    I also looked for this new Carol's Daughter stuff, most of her stuff has dust on it. I'm not really a fan but I wanted to look at the new stuff, oh well.

    When I go to IMATS I'll take note on which companies offer the most colors and ranges for WOC in the idustry, other than MAC.

    I didn't know we was talking about nails too, LOL. I love Zoya, OPI and China Glaze. If it's matte, I love it, if it's glitter I love it, if it's pink, purple, blue or yellow, I love it, lol.

    ^^Let me know how that is. I heard the pigmentation on it wasn't very strong. That's why I bypassed and purchased an Urban Decay Palette and a Too Faced Palette.

    okay... i'm no makeup expert but it seems a bit dusty and not very intense. ...not nearly as bright as the Stila duos i have. it's cool if you want something subtle. also i think you have to scratch in waaay more than MAC or loreal HIP.

    Do you mean you have to press harder to get more product on your brush? If so, and HIP is better than Tarte, Tarte should be ashamed.

    Yeah, that does look faded. Even the bronze isn't popping. I have the NYC Book of Shadows III from Urban Decay and they Enchanted Glamourland Set from Too Faced. I think both are not available anymore. I know a lot of people like the Naked Palette from Urban Decay but I passed on it for the Book of Shadows.

    Yeh, nothings popping in this Tarte palette.:laughing6:

    ok, maybe the orangey-copper but the rest are definitely more subtle applied than in the kit...can be used daytime IMO.

    overall feels kinda cheap and overpriced.

    might depend on coloring too..... for a fair-skinned person it might be punchier & more exciting.

    The only time I pull it out is when I need some random color to pull off a look in my head. I primarily use my Wet N Wild palettes (surprisingly nice and pigmented), my NYX shadows, and some cheapie Nicka K or NK shadows for everyday makeup. I do need to pick up some Urban Decay Primer Potion. I'm really not feeling the Too Faced Shadow Insurance.

    P.P. that Tarte palette might pop better with primer or another base.

    I saw that. I'm trying to be good. I want a few more Runway palettes. I think I have all of them except three. I really need some round lipglosses but I don't think CC carries them anymore.

    Yeah, high-end shadows should definitely be more pigmented than what those Tarte e/s appear to be. But you can still use them and get more intense color out of them. Just apply a thin layer of creamy concealer (not liquid or any concealer that dries completely) on your lids after you prime them. Then pat on the e/s - don't sweep. It really intensifies the color.
