Hi there! I am here to discuss, based on users' experiences, what is the best foundation for combo/dry skin. I am a 16-year-old teenager that is getting tired of drugstore foundations. It makes me look cakey, it rubs off easily and never stays on. More importantly, they don't help my skin. Due to hormonal changes, I am unfortunately leaning towards the dry territory. My eyebrows are the worst. I have brown hair, but instead of having brown eyebrows they're white from the constant flakiness around my eyebrows, in my eyebrows and eyelids. This all started once hot weather appeared. Before that, I was just pure dry during the winter. My face would burn or would have a burning sensation from dry skin. It was so bad that you could see the flakiness from miles away (exaggerating, of course). My friends kept telling about it. Way before that, I was nothing but oily. Right now, my face is a bit oily, but it's more on the dry side. As I'm writing this post, my face feels like cement but it has some oiliness going on. Any foundations out there to help my situation? I don't have a budget.
Hey, I am excited to start a thread on July hauls. Please excuse me for starting this early! I promise I have a good excuse, it's my birthday tomorrow! The first of JULY! And I have never started a Haul thread. Figured it might be an excuse
Just an idea but one I would love to see. I always see make overs happening in the middle of the store. And although all the make up is there and others can watch for educational purposes I never had one done because its so open. Having a private consultation in a separate room would be ideal. You wouldn't have to worry about people watching you and you could be more comfortable asking questions. Is this a possibility? How many of you would like to see this? If you got a make over was it a good experience?
Ok so I've been wanting to make this thread for a while. I've also been wanting to start a "random thoughts" thread...but I figured I'd separate the categories so that at least the "beauty" one is on the front page, rather than hidden in off topic. So, have a beauty-related thought but don't think it's worth starting a thread about ? Post it here ! today I got a facial at an extraordinarily nice spa. A real treat. And the results were immediate and truly great. But guys: she pulled out a clarisonic and a foamy cleanser for that first initial cleanse, and I nearly had a heart attack. Great for a lot of people but most of you know how I feel about those things !!!!!! Overall, as I said, it was great and my skin is happy. But sheesh.
Welcome back to the deal sharing fun! Deals shared here may also be posted to my blog (same name as the thread) unless you write for BT only. If I share your deal, I will always thank you here. I will heart every deal I see without an outside link to acknowledge it. A heart with no comment mean I already have the deal or am deciding not to list it. Thanks for sharing. Done sharing! Now, use these deals and haul! My favorite hauls are always from the deals we all share. If you find something full priced that is new and awesome, share it here. http://community.sephora.com/t5/Sephora-com/Autumn -Winter-2015-Found-in-the-Wild-quot-New-quot/m-p/2 ...
....i used 'jubilant'. i waited all month for this (for those who know what i'm talking about). I MEANT TO USE "JAUNTY". I SHOULD NOT MAKE POSTS AFTER HAVING A SAKE COCKTAIL. fail. ok....what have been my favorite things this month ??? PIXI glow tonic . i only got this toward the end of the month, but i love it. i use it in the morning before i put on any serum/oil and moisturizer (typically after i use the CLINIQUE *mild* clarifying lotion, if i happen to use it in the morning, sometimes i don't). it smells really nice yet not overbearing at all. can be sprayed over makeup to refresh your foundation if it's looking a bit patchy / dehydrated. totally works ! ....which leads me to CLINIQUE mild clarifying lotion . this is the only one in the range that does not contain alcohol. i wish it were called something different, actually, because the clarifying lotions have SUCH a reputation. but with consis use over the past month, i've found that some stubborn congestion on my chin has gone away completely, due to the salicylic acid. while things like the FAB pads give good 'glow' and help with gentle exfoliation (with the glycolic and lactic acid), the salicylic is good for stubborn unclogging. NYX lip liner in pale pink . it is quite pale, almost greyish pink. but because it leans grey rather than blue, it doesn't look garish or too "barbie" (which is great for a lot of women but not on me). just a unique color which is a good base for nudey pink lips (particularly with the slightly warmer MAC honey love, my go-to and always-favorite.) SEPHORA COLLECTION eyeliner in 'strawberry macaroon' . perfect waterline color. can look very natural, but also great for smokey eye looks because it gives a bit of that heroin chic sheen when contrasted with darker liner/shadows. can't beat the price. i put this in my favorites a couple months ago, i think, but i've only been using it regularly this month. i'd be remiss in not mentioning it again. SHISEIDO wetforce spf 50 . because it works. and i really needed something that works WELL while in hawaii. i'm proof because i easily could've turned full-lobster if using anything less effective. BUMBLE AND BUMBLE hairdresser's invisible oil shampoo, conditioner and hair "primer" . this is the only shampoo and conditioner i've used all month (which isn't saying much as i only wash my hair once a week, really, but still)-- with the slight exception of putting AVEDA dry remedy hair masque on the ends (which i will consider a monthly favorite, too). my hair is more manageable than it's been the entirety of my growing-out process. i've loved any b&b shampoo and conditioner i've tried, really. highly recommend. edited to add: sake cocktails . because they taste like whatever heaven you mix the sake with (in this case: watermelon juice and lavender) and leave you feeling STUPID and happy. alright ! how about you guys ?
Yes, I enjoy beauty and I spend a lot at Sephora, but while shopping at the Westfarms Mall in CT on Friday, I felt like I was being shamed by one employee for reaching the Rouge level so early in the year. I was at the checkout and the associate that was assisting me was wonderful and very cheery, and when she scanned my card she told me that I had re-qualified for Rouge. When the associate next to her heard, she said "What, already?" in such a condescending tone. The client she was assisting asked what that was and the associate said "She already spent $1,000 here since January!" and the two of them went on talking about how much money that is and how could someone spend that much so quickly. Then of course they scoffed when they heard me being told I have over 5,000 points. Everything about it made me feel like junk. I have never felt this way shopping in store, but I felt so embarrassed after this encounter that I just wanted to get out of there and not go back. I am not ashamed about what I spend my money on, because of course I only buy what I can afford and that is nobody's business but my own. I generally choose to shop at Sephora because I have had good experiences in the past, but I feel like I will probably find another Sephora location to go to, or do my shopping online and at other retailers where I feel more comfortable. Has anything like this ever happened to you in store? I would feel a little better if I weren't the only one that has had to go through something like this!
I thought it'd be fun to create a thread where we share our 'mask faces'! I'd love to see how lovely & silly you all look with masks on It'd be great if you mention the name of the mask you are using as well! I'll start things off! Tonight I am using the Lush Magnaminty mask
I love seeing other peoples empties! So I decided to make a board where people could post pictures of their empties, or just tell us about them! I'd also be interested in knowing whether you're repurchasing anything or not.
Starting a new thread for Sephora inside JCP exclusives! They often have some awesome sets and exclusive perks, so if you have one near you, it's definitely worth checking out! Aaaaaaand starting with these two! JCP exclusive Favorites Set: Ultimate Cleanse $34 for 8 deluxe samples (honestly all a little bigger than deluxe samples) AND you get a certificate to redeem for a full-item (listed below)! I honestly think this is the first time they've included a certificate in a non-mascara or fragrance kit, and I'm SO EXCITED (and definitely went and bought the set immediately after work today). And here are the values of the full-sized products! Algenist 5 oz Cleanser $38 Boscia 5 oz Cleansing Oil $28 Dr. Jart+ 8.4 oz Dermaclear $32 Josie Maran 6 oz Argan Cleansing Oil $32 Murad 6.75 AHA/BHA Exfoliating Cleanser $36 OleHenriksen 7 oz African Red Tea Cleanser $30 Peter Thomas Roth 8 oz Cleansing Gel $38 Philosophy 8 oz Purity Cleanser $24 Aaaaannndd second! Sephora is forever spotty with promotional emails, but check your inbox, you may have received this email! I just grabbed mine today and it's ADORABLE, looks just like the picture. It unfortunately is only one per email, and you have to scan the barcode in the "print offer" link so you can't forward it to your friends, but you got the email, definitely go get yours! I'll update this as things pop up! If you find anything great from Sephora inside JCP, feel free to share it on here!
A few photos showed up on my instagram through Beautezine, and apparently there is a Canada-Exclusive lip collection coming out in July for the fall from Bite, let's call it the Maple Collection. It apparently features 5 matte lipsticks with a maple scent, and a Maple Agave Lip Mask. So jealous, I'd love to get my hands on a maple-scented agave lip mask! Here are the photos that Beautezine posted on her instagram: and swatches:
Hey Beauties- We have ALOT of threads around here for Tom Ford products. I figured I'd start one thread where we can update each other on items as they come out or we see them available. For all my UK'ers, or people willing to pay for shipping from the UK, Harrods has Softcore and Nude Dip from the Fall collection available right now. Happy Shopping!

Anyone else get this via UPS today for participating in the SPF chat a few weeks back? It was a pleasant surprise. I can't use the products because they have chemical SPF ingredients but I will be sure to pass them along in a TSB real soon
Hi, I have predominately oily skin (T-zone) but numerous dry, flaky, and irritated patches from acne medication and healing acne, especially around my mouth. I use Clinique Dramatically Different Moisturizing Lotion before I apply liquid foundation and concealer, but I'm wondering if there is something better out there to reduce the flakiness. Cerave irritates my skin further, and I can't exfoliate much due to the already irritated skin. I'm happy with the foundation and concealer, it's just the moisturizer I think I can improve on. Thank you!
I've been on the Ipsy waiting list, but still look at the thread. I thought we could have a shared thread from all the subscription boxes (including non-beauty ones likes underpants and lifestyle such as Wantable and POPSugar). That way we can live vicariously through each others goodies! (I know there are unboxing videos on YouTube, but I do not have the patience to sit through a five minute video about someone apologizing for the state of their hair. And I know there are blogs where I can see photos, but everyone usually gets different items in their boxes)
OMG! Have you all heard about the Too Faced Born This Way Foundation? It isn't out yet and launching June 15th! I have watched and seen so many reviews on it with my favorite YouTube Beauty Girls...and it looks so flawless and it just has the best reviews. I was on the Too Faced website, and the price shows $52.00! Which is very pricey for my budget...but would it be same price on Sephora? I don't buy from Sephora that often. Usually just when my foundation runs out, I like to try out different foundations. Right now I am using the Clinique Stay Matte Foundation. And like it so far... Would you all switch your foundation to buy the new Too Faced Born This Way? Any thoughts or comments?
Hi everyone! Lately I have noticed my deluxe sample collection has become out of control! I am planning to do a Project 10 Pan Challenge to get through some of them. If anyone hasn't heard of Pan 10, basically you give yourself a set amount of time to use up 10 items. I am focusing on deluxe samples because I have too many- I wouldn't want to do this with my full size items that I don't want to use up! I am planning on also doing a no-buy until I finish this challenge (in theory lol). Anyone want to join in a Pan 10 deluxe samples challenge? With or without the no buy? If you want to join-document your challenge here! I won't be offended if no one joins up, but I wanted to start this thread to keep myself accountable. My items: 1. MUFE Smoky Extravagant Mascara 2. Tarte Slenderizer Contour Pencil 3. Benefit Sun Beam 4. Supergoop! CC cream 5. EOS mint lip balm 6. Origins Plantscription Night Cream 7. Boscia Tsubaki Sleeping Mask 8. Boscia Tsubaki Cleansing Powder 9. Nars Galaxy Girl lipstick 10. MAC lip liner in subculture
I feel like I'm not being respected as a customer. Here's why I'm pissed. - Extraordinary rewards fiasco (do I need to say more?) - Becca x Jaclyn Hill Shimmering Skin Perfector® Pressed not released as of yet for the canadian market (It will be fixed eventually, please cancel all your plans and refresh the website non-stop until you can FINALLY spend all your money!) - Points value online lesser than $$$ (now fixed but it went on for years!) - Sephora sale last november (tech issues, accusations of racism, no comments from Sephora, the sale had started and for days, canadians couldn't order. All the good stuff was gone when it was finally fixed.) - Duties Are you as pissed as I am? Do you have anything to add to the list?

trying new products can be...overwhelming. do you love a product because it works ? can you tell right away if it's performing the way you want it to ? sometimes i'm so happy to finally try something and let my enthusiasm blind my actual impression of it (at least at first ) it takes time to come to proper conclusions ! particularly when it comes to skincare, but makeup too. so here's a thread where we can discuss our experiences while trying a product for a first time. it can also be a place that people can reference if they're considering a new product. right now i'm trying a sample of the REN v-cense night cream. i've only used it for 2 nights so far, but i LOVE IT. i love it so much i'm tempted to go ahead and grab it up, but i need to make sure it doesn't break me out over time (it contains shea butter which *can* be a breakout trigger for me, but not necessarily). it smells of frankincense which i adore, but i know for some people would be a turn off. i'm also checking out the VICHY aqualia thermal serum. i really love the CAUDALIE vinosource s.o.s. thirst quenching serum, and prefer the texture of it to the VICHY, but think the caudalie may break me out slightly (i also was probably overusing it...i was very enthusiastic). so i'm just trying to figure out which i prefer. how about you ? __________ post trial edit about the products above: i had to skip on the REN because the shea butter in it was too heavy for my skin. and i suppose buying something simply for the smell isn't the best use of my moola the VICHY aqualia thermal serum, however, is in my permanent arsenal. i've already repurchased once since starting this thread, and have turned a few people on to it too !
