I'm new too. Trisha started a thread called "If you could only keep 1 ...... it'd be" which I found a really nice way of getting to know what other people use and letting other people know what you use too. I found it a really cool way of getting involved, you should try doing FOTD too! Hope you have fun here too.
Hi Caitie, welcome to MuT! I'm Joy from Los Angeles, another one of the moderators.
Please don't hesitate to jump right into the forums -- there are always interesting conversations going on. Trisha is leading the bandwagon for picture FOTDs (Face of the Day) which is a great place to get inspirations, learn about other users' favorite products etc.
