It's pitch black and it stays really well, needing few reapplications. You just paint it on and wallah! Instant pitch-black lips. (There's an example of this under the Crusnik Cain in my gallery For comparison, the dark grey on my eyes is the aforementioned eye/lip crayon).
hmm..that would be a very bad thing, I bite my lips all the time even with makeup. if it wasn't toxic, that would be wonderful. I can't seem to find a color dark enough lip pencil, and I'm assuming eyeliner is another no-no?
the base foundation i bought was from ben nye, and i dont think my parents really want to order something when I've just gotten something from there because the shipping and handling is outragious.

Shipping and handling really is outrageous x.x Stupid postal workers, they don't need to be paid! xD (Kidding.)

As far as the toxicity goes, well, I don't officially know, but I've used it myself and had no ill effects.

I checked threads but I don't see the answer to my question I have in mind o_o

Well, I gained a lot of weight within a short period of time(don't know how, really) and I have stretch marks all over my body. I'm going to change up a cosplay a bit to cover the ones on my legs but my midsection is going to be uncovered and I have bad stretch marks there also on the sides of my naval and sides >_<

So all I can think about to cover it is to use foundation to cover it up since it's pretty noticible and make it look smoother with some powder over it. Is that alright? And the problem would probably be that it would smudge off kind of easily and I don't want to go to the bathroom every few hours to keep on fixing it. Is there anything to make it not rub off as easy?

tl;dr - Use something like a dancer's bodysuit or a spray-on tan to cover them up.

I know that that threads tells me how to cover them up and such but my question was if there was anything to make it not rub off as easily.
And I was thinking about those spray bottles to make your legs look smooth but I'm not sure if it'll work well and I wouldn't know how to blend it in.

Makeup sealant should keep it from rubbing off.

I would just like to say videojug.com has a TON of video tutorials on how to apply make-up. There are also some hair/wig and crossplay tutorials.

1. For people who suck at make-up:

http://cincyfilms.com/makeup.html

Also, there is this video called "Blue Man Makeup How To With Ben Nye Theatrical Makeup" on youtube. It shows you how to paint your face an unnatural color.

2. For people doing unnatural skin colors.

3. Crossplay make-up tips

First, thank you SO much for posting this thread.

Secondly, would you know if there's a thread for TAKING CARE of false eyelashes? I'd really appreciate that since I got semi-perm eyelash extensions which the salon said would last me a month, but I'm worried since I'm going to be beach next week. (Fail, I know. )

Thanks heaps!
