Anne Marie and Nancy,

Is it called "Touch Base" by Clinique?  If so, it's not a cleanser, but more of a skin colored.... base... I guess is the right word.  Like primer before you paint the walls.  You just dab a little on, it's like a creamy consistency, and it's supposed to help set the powder and keep it in place.  I use it on the rare occasion I use eye shadow - I'm lucky if I manage to get eyeliner and mascara on half the time.  As far as eyeliner, I also use a waterproof Clinique product.  It comes in a compact like shadow and a little paintbrush looking thing - add a little water, put it on, let it dry and it stays pretty well.

Now I think I might have to try out this red eyelash curler..... I hope someone is getting a commission from all this free advertising!   :D

When I say I'm having a bad hair day most people think it's the hair on my head, which when they look at it they probably agree :D, but I'm talking about eyelash issues.  I haven't had any trouble in quite sometime until I posted on this thread again,  best be getting my butt to the store to get that special eyelash curler then maybe I can quite trimming my long beautiful lashes.   ::)

Lori,

You are right on the money once again!!!  I even spelt the name incorrectly.  I have been using Clinique's "Touch Base" for at least ten years.  I find it helped set my eyeshadow for the entire day or evening.  I use the Clinique gel eyeliner and mascara.  I find my left eye is very sensitive and the Clinique products are not irritating.

I have a question:  I just checked the Touch Base line & saw it's a cream base - how does the 'cream' stay on the lid & how do you put powder over it ?  Wouldn't it clump & get in the creases ??  (can you tell I'm not makeup savvy ?!)  Thanx,  Nancy

I guess it's technically a cream base, but it's not really creamy....this is confusing...I'm trying to think of something to compare it to.  It's not creamy like a foundation..more like an eye shadow with a more liquid and less powdery feel.  So, maybe, somewhere in between a foundation and a powder shadow?
Like one of those pastel art crayons we used in art class.

I haven't had a problem with it clumping because you use so little of it and it speads nicely.  It also doesn't seem to get in the creases. 

If you can get over to the Clinique counter, they probably have a sample of it you can try before you buy it.

I'm not makeup savvy either - good thing there are people that are or I'd be in trouble!   :D

Nancy,

It is a wonderful product that literally glides on like silk and it more or less dries instantly.  There is no other way to describe it.  There are a few different shades to choose from also.  I like the canvas shade.  It works well with my skin tone.  Check it out.

I used this for years and then switched from Clique to Bare Minerals so i used a powder that did the same thing.  Now I have a product from Studio Gear that is the same as the touch base & I really like it too!!  Still need the red curler!

The search of the special eye lash curler continues!  My gold weight sits a little low on my eye lid, so I don't really bother with eye makeup on the lid itself, but good advice for when I do want to get my self all spiffied up. :)

Here's how I deal with the eyeliner issue:  I tightline with a soft khol pencil (I use Rimmel).  This means I apply liner very close to the lashline in a series of dots.  It takes a little practice to get the technique down, but I find that it looks much better than my attempts to draw a line on my lids.  Sometimes I tightline with an eyeliner brush and wet/dry eyeshadow.  It looks really natural.

If you want a cheapie eye makeup base, then head on over to Ulta and pick up an eye shadow pencil from NYX (hypoallergenic brand, too!).  I use Cream Cheese and Strawberry Milk.  Each pencil will set you back around 4  bucks.  The sales reps at Sephora make samples for almost everything they carry.  Don't be afraid to ask. 

One thing I've noticed in general is that my an eye is very sensitive to product.  I used to be able to get away with drugstore shadows, but since the eye weight, not so much.  In fact, I had to toss out a lot of my stuff and buy fewer things of quality.  I can still use drugstore masacara and eyeliner, but that is about it.  Even drugstore concealers irritate that eye!  In general, I've had really good luck with LORAC and BeneFit.  Clinique is really good, too--and much easier to find at the local mall.

Sara, If you want we can work through your eye curler issues together.  I'm afraid of makeup, haven't used it since my surgery in 92 and don't plan on using it as long as EYE have to use so much ointment, not worth the hassle.  Jill
