so i am about to purchase the KVD foundation and i cannot decide which brush to go along with it, i would want a brush that will give me a full coverage, airbrush look. there is just so many i can't decide and i don't wanna risk buying the wrong one. is there anyone who uses this foundation, and if so which brush do you use to apply it? oh i am going to purchase the beauty blender to try it out, i still want a brush though.
Hi girls! So I ordered quite a few of the $10 steals and I thought it would be fun for us to write up mini review on them for each other. Mine arrived last night, so I've only tried two so far. Eyeko Mascara/Eyeliner (still available) I was SO excited to try the Eyeko Skinny Eyeliner.... and it wasn't very pigmented. Maybe it is a little dry and I need to shake it up (??) and try again tomorrow. I'll report back. I haven't tried the mascara yet but the wand is very unique. http://www.sephora.com/skinny-mini-duo-P377021?sku Id=1470962 Caudalie Hand Cream and Lip Conditioner Duo (sold out- individual links below) I had been wanting to try the lip conditioner and I constantly use hand lotion so this was perfect for me. The lip conditioner is very smooth and smells nice. The hand lotion smells sooooo good (sort of citrusy?) and my hands feel lovely! What do you guys think of your $10 sets? http://www.sephora.com/lip-conditioner-P6034?skuId =241653 http://www.sephora.com/h-nail-cream-P152203?skuId= 941609
I love having something to look forward to while studying, and I'd love to see some of you beautiful people share with me (and of course, the rest of this lovely community) one of your favorite looks you've created--on yourself or, perhaps, a loved one. I love seeing others' creativity in action. It is so inspiring! Here's one of mine, to be fair: Though I've done better makeup-wise, I loved my outfit and hair here...I wish I could dress like this every day
Okay, so I'm a mini perfume addict and the 25 days of giving minis totally got my attention. Since monday, I've been placing a minimum of $25 orders just to be able to redeem a mini. I don't wanna be spending $25 everyday just to get minis coz my wallet is still recovering from all the November shopping I made. Question is: Can I just place just ONE $1 order EVERY DAY til the 25th day just so I can redeem a mini perfume everyday? Will I get banned if I do this? Mods?
I bought the Drybar Daily Detangler Brush a while back and love it like no other brush I've owned. Trying to decide on buying the Drybar Medium Round Brush. Is it really worth the $40 or is there another round brush that is comparable?
Hey ladies (and gents?) – As 2013 is coming to a close, I thought we’d like to share the best products we discovered/tried/bought this year. Let’s break it into sub-categories. I’ll go first Face – Laura Mercier Silk Crème foundation – I feel like this is my holy grail foundation, but I still want to try others. Eyes – Laura Mercier Artist palette – It won’t be a Laura Mercier list, I promise Lips – Dior Crème de Rose lip balm Best deal – I’m going to cheat and say two: All the mini perfumes for 100 points instead of 250 points and the Nars Guy Bourdin blush palette PS – Sorry I’ve started waaay too many threads the past few days. That’s what cabin fever will do to ya! Well, that and draining your wallet from all the online shopping you do. Lol PPS - Feel free to add other categories as well, these were the only ones I could think of at the moment.
I'm currently at 346 beauty insider points. From my understanding, VIB status is unlocked when you reach 350 points in a calendar year. All of these points were accumulated in this year (2013). My Sephora account keeps telling me I need 172 more points to reach VIB? Is anyone else having this problem? Can anyone offer any help to fix this? Any help or suggestions would be highly appreciated! Thanks
Is there any product that can help clear acne scars on my back? They make me incredibly self-conscious and I honestly didn't go to the beach this summer because of them. The scars are spread all over my back and are a darkish brown color and I would love to hear advice or recommendations from anyone that has also experienced this. Thank you!
I'm really really in need of some new eyeliner, I use pencils right now because I'm don't exactly the steadiest hands, but I'm finding it fades, smudges and "waterproof" is never truly so. I'm hearing awesome things about liquid eyeliner pens and want to give it a shot, does anyone know an awesome waterproof product that can do thinner and/or thicker lines? Thanks xoxo
I'm stumped on ideas for small gifts to buy my kids' teachers. Any teachers out there who could tell me what gifts you love to receive? Any ideas are appreciated! 2 of the teachers are male mid-to-late 20's. 1 female early 20's and 1 female late 30's. edit - My children attend a Lutheran school so Christmas/religious themed gifts would be appropriate.
Shaking my head!! someone posted this on Sephora's Facebook page and I really hope they do something about it. Instead of canceling orders for "fraud prevention", I think Sephora should spend some time preventing this from going on. How is it even possible that someone has 13 reward cards to sell?
This should be fun! I thought why don't we fill in the blanks of what we are primarily using right now. It would be fun to see the variety of answers! Foundation: Concealer: Eyeliner: Eyeshadow: Powder: Blush: Bronzer: Lipstick: Lipgloss: Mascara: Brows:
Hi everyone!!! This is a follow up post to my male celebrity crushes post from a few weeks ago! If you could marry any male celebrity, who would it be? I would marry Henry Cavill. That man is fineeeeeee. But he's 12 years older than me I have him as my phone background and my computer screen saver 3, 2, 1, GO!!!! P.S. I really should be studying for my finals but, I'm too stressed, tired, and don't want to anymore. :/
A while back I posted a thread about products or techniques that have changed your makeup, skincare or hair care. http://community.sephora.com/t5/Off-Topic/Products -and-or-Techniques-that-Changed-Your-Makeup-Skinca ... On weekends I like to try new things, either products or techniques. Today in particular I had numerous epic fails. From one of my shadows shattering in the case (new, too, ugh) to a new BB cream providing zero coverage and actually turning my face red, to the second time this week cascading glitter all over my face from my eye shadow!! LOL I had to use makeup remover to take some stuff off it was so bad. Just wondering if anyone else experiences the same. I do like to change things up, but it doesn't always mean success.
From yahoo: "The set features deluxe size samples of MAKE UP FOR EVER's Smoky Extravagant mascara and Rouge Artist Natural lipstick in N9." For the men: Sephora is offering its male Beauty Insiders a reason to celebrate with an exclusive gift from JACK BLACK. The deluxe-sized sample of JACK BLACK Performance Remedy™ Turbo Wash™ Energizing Cleanser for Hair & Body contains rosemary, eucalyptus and juniper berry for a refreshing sensory boost any time of day.
Thought I'd start a non-makeup thread on those times inside a Sephora store when we've unknowingly been placed on the spot -- and possibly blushing every shade of pink one could imagine. -During a recent trip, the employee who rang me up practically yelled, "You have XXXX points!!! Would you like to redeem anything from our display?" Needless to say, everyone standing around the register turned to look at me, and I could see the wheels turning in their heads as to how much I've spent. Clearly they've missed the memo that 4X points was a few months prior and that I'm a points hoarder. -One pushy (borderline getting on my nerves) MUA asked which UD or YSL eyeshadow I had on, since the color was extremely vibrant and glittery on my eyes. It was neither but, in fact, a L'oreal Infallible. The plus side was that I was able to shop in peace after telling her that Share away, folks!
Hey ladies, Do any of you have personal beauty consultation experiences in Sephora that you would like to share? Do any of you have custom makeover experiences in Sephora that you would like to share? I have an appointment tomorrow for a personal beauty consultation and am wondering what to expect. I was going to show up just wearing my moisturizer and sunscreen, and let Sephora do the rest. Thinking about it now, I may have a little bit of anxiety with not wearing any makeup in public. It's not that I'm ashamed of my skin (ok maybe I am a little), I just realized how comforting makeup is to me. The routine, however brief it may be on certain days, is soothing. The other thing is, I know before going in that I'm going to spend more than $125 so I was wondering if someone who has done both beauty consultation and make over can tell me what the difference is. Was it worth it getting a custom makeover?
So i love lip gloss mostly because lipstick isn't too great for me. I have really dry lips that I cant get rid off. My Neutrogena lip balm with SPF 20 is a must every morning and night or my lips will bug me the whole time. I usually place my balm on before I use my mac creme sheen or Lancôme lip sticks. I tend to stay within the deeper pinks it's a natural color for my lips. so to my point(: what lip glosses do any of you recommend ? Or love? any great lip glosses that aren't really thick and sticky? Ive been thinking about trying out Loracs lip with Benefit lip gloss in the color: Chuck(nude). pix = the color of lipstick I tend to stick to and would love a lip gloss in that color. The lighting is kinda bad.sorry.
So I buy minis of mascaras because even though I use my mascara almost every day I can't seem to use it up.....it's been 5 months now that I have had my mini benefit they're real and I still think it works just fine. I really want to try to use it up or at least wait till it dries out. Do I have to throw it away??
So I have some medium-dark scarring and slightly rough skin along my my jawline that I can partially coverup by using a good primer and then my foundation, but I definitely need something more. Does anyone have suggestions for a good concealer that will stay smooth and not settle into the few rough spots I have, but something that provides long lasting full coverage for something more than just a blemish? Thanks!
We swatched Urban Decay's new Naked3(!!) palette to see how the colors looked on different skintones. What do you think?
Do you have a swatch of this palette? Post a pic in the thread below!

Any suggestions on what to do when your nude lipstick is too beige or washes you out. I'm olive toned and have the Lady Gaga Viva Glam lipstick that is too nude. Would love to alter it somehow to tone it down.
