Why is this forum so quiet?

Recommended Posts

Guest Lizzie McTrucker

I've been wondering this for awhile now. Why is the beauty subforum so quiet? It's all about makeup! And beauty products! Makeup, foundation, powder, blush, mascara, eyeliner, nail polish, bronzer, primer, eyeshadow...what's not to love about this place?!

Makeup is good.

Makeup is fun.

Makeup makes you feel pretty.

Love makeup. I do. :)

I am not full time yet and haven't had the chance to play with make up for a long time.

Soon as I can I'll join ya on the girl talk. Getting ready to try out a new Sephora product though and if it works I'll let you know :)

Till then, I really enjoy reading all of your posts. I find them really helpful and I've already added the Orgasm blush and various other products to my Amazon wishlist for when full time nears!

lol, I'm not a big fan of makeup. I will use what is appropriate when it is appropriate, but I doubt it'll be much more than a little eye makeup.

I like makeup more the older i get. The most important for me is the eyebrow pencil. that makes the biggest difference in how i look.

Do tell what is the orgasm blush ?

This is strange I'm learning alot from u girls . After raising my kids I really did not have time for make up . Well this inspires me . Inspires me to do things I should have done ages ago . So keep the ideas coming cause u never know who it might help .

Omg I do not go out of the house without at least some makeup on! Mine only consists of eyeliner, mascara, eyeshadow and now and then lipstick. I don't even remember putting it on anymore, it is just part of my morning routine now - but one aspect I am no doubt glad to have. :)

Hee hee - isn't it really neat where we can find inspiration some times? I know in the office I work in, as well as my now-roommate, the other girls seem to be wearing a little more makeup and dolling up a little more.

I've been wondering this for awhile now. Why is the beauty subforum so quiet?

Cuz people the world over have realized they're beautiful without makeup? Cuz they've decided it's unnecessary, over priced and that the ideal standard of beauty is just a corporate con designed to bait consumers out of their money? Cuz they've determined if their partners can't appreciate them without add ons and enhancers, then it's their partners' loss?

Ah. . . utopian, but I can dream, can't I?

Never mind. :lol:

It's blush made by NARS and the shade is called ..that. It's not cheap though, I paid $28 for it but it's very pretty and very flattering. Even celebrities wear it!

Also apparently I have guilt-tripped my dispatcher into wearing mascara. I'm not sure how I did that, but according to her I did.

I can't afford good make-up and cheap make-up is worthless. No matter what I try I can't make myself pretty in my own eyes.

If you know what your looking for there are some great deals to be had on Ebay, for example, I won a full size Boscia tinted moisturizer yesterday for a whopping $3 when it retails at almost $30. Oh yeah, that NARS Orgasm is awesome and if you like that you ought to try the Copacabana too, very pretty it is.

Just as I supposedly guilt-tripped my dispatcher into wearing mascara, one of my friends has guilt tripped me into wearing eyeliner. I tried it today and I think it turned out really well. Really defines your eyes! I used the one that came in the kit from another thread. This one is pencil and I found it went on easier and was easier to blend than liquid.

Well my eyeliner quest has lead me to try a few other products. I noticed with pencil the bottom lid tends to melt after a few hours and for me, that's totally not acceptable. Luckily the pencil I was trying was by NYC and only 99 cents so it's not a big purchase.

So today I'm going to try...

L'oreal Infallible eyeliner. "up to 16 hours of smudge resistant color" we'll see about that.

and for the top lid I'm going to try Rimmel Exxagerate bold design eye crayon. Looks like it could be liquid with a felt tip applicator which I figured is perfect for the upper lid. It's new and opthamologist tested...which is unclear if an eyedoctor studied it or if an eyedoctor wore it. Hmmm....

Oh and by melt I mean the color went on just fine but after a few hours it started to look like the beginning of raccoon eyes and yeah, that's totally not acceptable. I want to define my eyes and make them look amazing, not look like I'm in an old time bank robber movie, ya know? Ah the quest for beauty...

Because i can't be full time yet, i have to make thing removable. Uggh. Here's a trick for you if that's your story or if you just want to try something for a short time. I wash face(at least once a week) ha ha, I then use a moisturizer. Most have a mineral oil base. I make sure that my eyes, lashes and brows, have been "oiled" Makeup sticks well but comes off easily without loading your eyes with soap. As i've spent so much of my life under a stone we worms find some tricks.

I'm looking forward to more permanent makeup. I love how it changes my face. I have also noticed at the aa meetings that the girls are dressing better and wearing more makeup. One of the girls has commented on mine and she always does her eyes now. It's great to give oneself time to look good.

Liz, love your posts. I've ended up with raccoon eyes using too much light colored concealer around them. I just can't look 30 again or is that 40 or 50 oops Girls don't mention their age..

Hugs, Charlie

She has to keep up with the competition. Well I say that jokingly but it's true in a sense.

Well I'm giving the new eyeliners a try.

The new pencil eyeliner seems to be staying and not melting so that's a plus.

The liquid eyeliner seems to be working out well, too.

But it's only been like an hour so we shall see as the day progresses how things go.

      Well, if dad is paying for it, I guess he has some say so on the issue, but little does he know how fun some Enby's can be.  If he gets to know a few -------- but I guess he won't.  His loss entirely.  I feel bad, but for now you are having the right attitude about it.

      Beautiful photo. In a couple of weeks, it should be sunny like that once the June gloom is gone.

      Naturally, I've been wondering whether there are any entries in the 63 pages (currently) of this thread that involve a Rubber Chicken.   Search claims that to not be the case, but I have my doubts, given the stealthiness of Rubber Chickens, and how friends have surprised me with them! 🙂   Astrid

      (Disclaimer: I am not out to my family because they are against anything LGBTQ related)   So it was a normal family dinner with me and my family sitting down to some dang good soup I'd slaved over today. The topic of conversation? My wedding. Personally, I'd like to get married someday, so I was joking with my brother that because he wasn't being nice to me that he was no longer invited.   Then, suddenly, out of the blue, my father chimes in with: "You can't invite any nonbinary people".   I'm silent out of shock (Because how does he even know that word!?!?!?) The rest of my family are silent, but soon start asking questions.   Turns out, he'd seen on the news today that Jonathan Van Ness from Queer Eye came out as nonbinary.  I probably should have found it hurtful, or have been scared, but to be honest, I just laughed. Even if it was an inappropriate moment to do so.  Because he said that to me, who identifies as a nonbinary gender. Who would be the one of the two people that the wedding is all about. God, if he knew. 😅 Guess I'm not allowed to be invited to my own wedding anymore!

      In my experience you find good people when you are happy confident and okay being alone. When you are like that it’s like you share the best of yourself. You give off an awesome vibe and people like that. That’s when I’ve always met my long relationships.    Being trans is unfortunately something with negative connotations. So are lots of things. But people find partners that love them for who they are. There are no limiting factors. And you never know who that person could be. So all anyone can do is live. Be yourself and be your best. And not worry about it. I’d hate to be sad about it forever just waiting. I’d just go live life. And be me.

      Good evening from here, sipping coffee after dinner, tastes great, and glad to be home after 13 days on the road down and up the west coast. Here is a pic I took from across the marina in SD and hotel complex I stayed at in the background...

      Litha (midsummer, summer solstice) approaches. This Saturday, the sun will be at its strongest, longest day.    The full moon Esbat is now, tonight.    Which means that the representative full masculine power of God (summer solstice)and the representative full feminine power of God (Full  moon)  will be the closest they come together astronomically and astrologically this year.   My mind has moved in interesting directions over the past few days.  The goddess calls...   Will attend a Litha Fire festival this weekend to celebrate.

      By all means stop looking, but do not put words into other people's mouths. I've heard all 4 of those lines too, along with the classic, "it would feel weird being more than friends with you" and a few others.  Just enjoy being yourself, if you do not think you are worth the time why should anyone else? (a lesson I have recently learnt/still learning).   I'd bet you have plenty of good qualities, heck get some cats if you have really given up on people - but if you are strong enough to transition then you are strong enough to find more to look forward in your life than just skipping to the end of the book.  
    • Raven1981
      I am with you DeeDee.  Even before transitioning, I was always put into the friend zone.  Then I just hated these famous lines I was told.   1. Your too much of a friend to be a relationship person.   2. You have just not found the right person yet.   3. There is plenty of fish in the sea.   4, You dont have to date, cause your not the dating type of person.   All these lines I just hate with a passion.  They are all just the nice way of saying get away your ugly and I dont like you.   That's why I am just giving up and will just die lonely and alone
