I don't think Feferi or Condy have colored eyelashes. It is a good color though!

Now, to find makeup I'm not allergic to would be the issue...

Ma'am, Monistat gel is NOT a substitute for Smashbox! People say it 'has the same ingredients', but it doesn't!
These are the Smashbox ingredients- Cyclopentasiloxane, Dimethicone Crosspolymer, Dimethicone, Trisiloxane, Silica, Dimethicone/ Vinyldimethicone Crosspolymer, Ethylhexyl Salicylate, Retinyl Palmitate, Tocopheryl Acetate, Carthamus Tinctorius (Safflower) Seed Extract, Propylene Glycol, Water (Aqua, Eau), Vitis Vinifera (Grape) Seed Extract, Cola Acuminata Seed Extract, Camellia Oleifera Leaf Extract

And these are the Monistat ingredients- Cyclopentasiloxane, Dimethicone, Dimethicone/Vinyl Dimethicone Crosspolymer, Silica, Tocopheryl Acetate, Trisiloxane

They share some ingredients, but they are in different quantities and Smashbox has many more ingredients. Here is a comparison of the two- [link]

I don't know why on earth anyone would consider it an actual alternative.... Basically, it is like saying that since chlorine shares an ingredient with salt, it should work as a substitute. Please don't try putting chlorine in your food instead of salt and please do not use chaffing cream on your face!

Oh my goodness, that is gonna be hard! Yeah I freaked out when I saw people doing that it could be dangerous! Maybe it isn't, but all the same it certainly isn't a substitute for primer, even a cheap primer would be better! Thanks for teh link!

i think a lot of it is because many of the ingredients are the same, and they are both made for the skin that people just kind of. were like "wait yes this is perfect. yesss monistat is just as good aaah jackpot"

Yeah! I can't help but think that part of the reason people rave about it is because they WANT it to work. It is cheap after all, although I know where I can get Smashbox primer for $8(yay department store outlets) as well so that doesn't matter to me much! Maybe it even works for some peopl but I've seen too many people get horrible breakouts from it! Since it isn't made for your face it can clog your pores really easily.

right?
that only thing too though is that they both are products that smooth out the skin. the only difference is that one is for a smooth canvas for makeup and the other is to eliminate any discomfort. both are effective in that way. i think it's those first 3 or 4 ingredients. but yeah i see what you mean.

Yep, Smashbox also has a bunch of other stuff not listed on monistat, stuff that will help makeup stay and keep your pores from being infected!

for the coloured eyelashes, do you think putting vaseline on my lashes and putting lipstick on a brush to colour it would work? because i cant find red mascara anywhere or clear mascara :\ great tutorial btw!
MaliceMidnight's avatar

also using vaseline and lipstick so close to your eye can also clog pores and cause infections and styes. if infections go untreated they may also cause blindness in some cases. hard candy and plenty of drugstore brands that will carry pink and blue mascara.

you can get kryolan here: [link] you just need a clean makeup brush and a few drops of water.

ahh i see, thank you both so much! i'll be sure try both your methods c:

NO. Lipstick isn't made to be safe for your eyes! Don't risk your eyes for a costume! You can use a clear mascara and mix in red eyeshadow(you can get it at Sephora(Sephora brand eyeshadow, color Geisha Kiss) on sale for $5 right now I think)

I have a question on the Ben Nye materials. How many uses does a single creme color container have? I'm planning on doing my first serious cosplay and I have no idea how many I might need to buy for a three day convention, and maybe a practice use or two to see how it works. They're fairly cheap so I'm not too worried on if I have to buy 2 or 3 of them but I'd just like to know. :33

I usually buy 3 or four just to be safe but i also do other people's makeup.(sorry for the late reply)
