The Makeup Thread

Here is your semi-regular makeup thread, to discuss all things makeup and makeup adjacent.

Do you have a makeup product you'd recommend? Are you looking for the perfect foundation which has remained frustratingly elusive? Need or want to offer makeup tips? Searching for hypoallergenic products? Want to grouse about how you hate makeup? Want to gush about how you love it?

Whatever you like — have at it!

As I keep mentioning every time I post a Makeup Thread, lol, I haven't gotten any new products in a long time, but I just received (literally this morning) Kerry Washington's Force of Nature Eye Palette for Neutrogena, and I am very excited about it!

First of all, I love Neutrogena makeup, because I know it's never going to break me out; it's so gentle on my absurdly fussy combination skin.

Secondly, Neutrogena products are always reasonably priced, but they're currently having a 25% off sale at their website, so this palette regularly priced at $12.99 is only $9.74 at the moment.

Third, these colors!

Fourth, I love Kerry Washington. The end.

Anyway! What's up with you?

(As always, I'm not affiliated in any way with any of the companies whose products I mention, nor am I getting anything in exchange for my recommendations. I just like the products!)

Please note, as always, that advice should be not be offered to an individual person unless they solicit it. Further: This thread is open to everyone — women, men, genderqueer folks. People who are makeup experts, and people who are makeup newbies. Also, because there is a lot of racist language used in discussions of makeup, and in makeup names, please be aware to avoid turns of phrase that are alienating to women of color, like "nude" or "flesh tone" when referring to a peachy or beige color. I realize some recommended products may have names that use these words, so please be considerate about content noting for white supremacist (and/or Orientalist) product naming.
