    Re: FORT Koffee Klatch

    Any recommendations to allergic reactions to eyebrow waxing? The salons I frequent have one wax that is supposed to be hypoallergenic, in addition to the regular wax, but either way I break out terribly, with huge red bumps on my forehead and under my eyebrows. It takes at least a full week to disappear and is quite unsightly! I'm not so great at tweezing and only go to get the brows waxed when absolutely necessary. I've heard that threading is good but it is supposed to be more painful. What can I apply to get rid of the bumps?

    I didn't find threading painful, she was very quick and they looked great.

Cool water doesn't really do too much, which means you can cry and it doesn't come off.

    It took me a little time to get used to, but I like it so much better than the mascara you need oil or makeup remover to take off. I always got that stuff in my eyes. Plus, I was always wiping mascara from under my eyes during the day.

    I will say that, if I don't rinse the sink well, the tubes look like little spider legs in the sink.

    As they say, results may vary. I LOVE it, maybe others will too.
    Great! thank you..I will pick some up this weekend.I googled it so I know what the tube itself looks like. I must remember to rinse the sink well, I am afraid of spiders and their legs

    My 14 year old is sensitive to eye makeup but would like to use mascara at least. I'm going to get this for her! Thanks. (Oh, and I'm going to try it as well. Mascara is a staple for me, like water, or cheese.)

    I'm not sure that it's hypo-allergenic, but it's worth a try!

    I wear waterproof mascara, too. It's the only kind that doesn't smudge on me. Even if I don't cry or sweat, even smudge-resistant non-waterproof mascara smudges on me.
    But now I'm curious about trying beauty tubes — though I'm hesitant because of allergies. (I use Almay.)

    L'Oreal makes wonderful products, overall. I use many of their things, and have never been disappointed. It's worth whatever extra you pay for it. Ellen, the word "non-waterproof" tells me right there that I'm not going to be happy with it. Luckily, I'm not a big crier or sweater. I used to wear Almay, but was never that happy with it.

    I also think that the technique you use to apply the mascara makes a difference. I've learned to roll my mascara on, from base to tip, as opposed to just brushing in on from base to tip; I let the first rolled on coat dry, do a couple of things, and then repeat the roll-on. Rolling it on keeps me from pulling the already-applied mascara off the lashes, if that makes sense. I read about that technique several years ago, and have done it ever since. It made sense to me.

    Re: FORT Koffee Klatch

    I'd like some advice FORTers. I have a Facebook account and I frequently post comments about television shows that I have watched. Last night was Scandal's finale. In my status this morning I posted that I was surprised to find out that a certain character was Olivia's (the main protagonist) dad. A friend of mine posted under my status "What if someone recorded it?" This is not the first time she has made a similar comment whether it was who got bumped off American Idol, DWTS, or whatever. Apparently this gal never watches anything in real time. I don't think that is my problem and I am tempted to send her a pm telling her she can just block me if she wants b/c if I feel like commenting on a TV episode, season finale, etc, it's my right to do so. She can't censor what I want to post. So, I decided to count to ten, take a deep breath, and post here for advice b/c I am really steaming right now.

    I saw that! I nearly said a lot of my friends are down East, so I don't go on FB until I have seen the show- If I record it, I expect to see something about the show on FB
