I've been thinking about venturing into the world of falsies and am finding that there's HUGE price differences between different types. Based on old threads and limited personal experience, I definitely get that glue is super important and that no matter how much you spend, you really shouldn't use the same pair too many times. My question is, how much difference is there between more expensive brands like MUA versus cheaper ones? Also, can people recommend some favorite cheaper sets?
Hello Ladies, Because we all have the same problem with the addiction of Sephora this is the place to come and release your woes of all the money each of us have spent. So come and feel free to be yourself. P.S.- This one's for you crazeeRN

I want to thank Candace and the BT mods and Sephora for giving out a free eyeshadow for those who participated in the swatch to get a free shadow sweepstakes here on beauty talk! I am absolutely THRILLED with my shadow, I couldn't have picked out a better one myself and I see myself wearing it every single day! Thank you so much!!
I haven't tried too many products from this brand but I am considering being a consultant since I stay at home with my son. Does anyone have favorite products from this line? I have liked some of their eveyshadows and the satin hands collection.
Anyone noticed that instead of shopping list we have a red heart sign now? So, when you browsing stuff if the heart is red it means you have the product in your (old shopping list). If not, then its a white/clear heart. Kinda cool
I have a few beauty apps that I really like on my ipad, but I'm bored and looking a new one (or two). My all time fav is called Popsugar. It is a free app and its like a blog/online magazine. There are different sections like fashion,beauty,celebrity,moms,etc... There are beauty tips and articles, and lots of new ideas for nails and makeup. Very fun and user friendly. The other one I really like is called Beautylish. This one if free also and has stories, tip and tricks, and lots of videos...there are other sections but I like those the most. I also like the Sephora app, this is different than the passport app Sephora has, I have both. The app that is different than passport has videos and a social section, plus the latest (and past) catalogues, and one of my favorite sections is the nail studio. This is where I get a lot of my nail ideas, and its cool bc it tells exactly what brand and color polish is used and has pictures with steps and tools needed. Anyone have an app they really like/love?...preferably related to beauty but doesnt necesarily have to be. I could use ideas for other apps as well.
I have the Nars Larger Than Life Long-Wear Eyeliner in black that I use for tight lining, as well as lining the rest of my eye. This was suggested by a CM in a fee standing store, so I went with it. I've been on a purple makeup spree lately, and I was wondering what people thought of tightlining using purple. Is tightlining something better done in black or would purple look good also (depending on the rest of the makeup)?? I was debating on getting the same eyeliner by Nars in the color Bourbon Street. I'm wondering if there are better options out there, an eyeliner for tightlining thats so amazing and I'm missing out??? The Larger than Life liner works well, it does need to be reapplied after so long, but for the most part stays on and acts waterproof. I was thinking that is the best it gets when working in an area that stays wet on your eye. I'm up for suggestions for black or purple eyeliner.
I'm in my teens and my graduation is coming up. I have chest,back and face acne. I want to clear it up before my graduation (hopefully). I have oily skin that is like dry and sensitive at the same time... and acne prone. o-o I read that it helps with acne so i'm willing to invest in it. (: I don't know which one to buy, i know that the Mia is like $30 cheaper and the Mia 2 has two speeds. Is it really necessary to have 2 speeds? Which one is better for both face and body? Is the timer necessary? Do they both do the same job? Help me please! I'm kinda in need of help for clearing up my acne. It's making my self esteem low and confidence. :c
Has anyone given this a try or thought about getting this? I heard many reviews about this, especially Dim. I want to get BT opinions on this one before I go into Sephora. I know I won't be walking out with just one item.
Hello & Thanks for the HELP! I just bought the Sephora Moonshadow baked palette "In The Dark". I love it! But I need help finding another palette (affordable, please!) that I can use for everyday eye shadow looks. INFO: I have light, sensitive, skin with random freckles and moderate acne. My natural hair color is VERY dark, but it is dyed golden blond. I have medium blue eyes. This picture is from my wedding 3 years ago; I am usually not this tan-even in the summer months! My avatar is most accurate. I am open to any suggestions on fun colors-Summer ROCKS! I would like a palette, but whatever anyone can suggest for me helps. THANKS SO MUCH! Alicia
I'm pretty sure this has been done in beauty talk before but I want to start one if not. just to be sure... name of the game: A-Z name of a product not the palette not the brand but the name of the color, or shade you can name more than one for each letter but you have to complete the whole list. it has to either be something you own or are interested in purchasing can be from a palette nail polish any beauty product even a fragrance name ready set go & have fun with it. (my family used to play this game in the most boring way when i was little on our trips to get to the local zoo from our house or while driving out of state with license plates bill boards street signs etc. but I think this is way more fun!) Note: Put the name of the color first, then brand then status of wether you own it or want it but only put down one or the other & if you own it you have to like it otherwise there is no point in introducting the title to others. because this gets people not to want to look into getting said products. it can be department store, drug store, sephora,ulta or otherwise just make sure you like it. & Enjoy!) I will post mine upon completion P.S. don't post too may pics. otherwise it will take forever for people to load the page LOL)
This is long, sorry I am really tired of having skin problems, I want to be able to leave the house without having to put concealer and foundation. I had normal skin in high school except breakouts on forehead when it was that time of month. However, once I entered college I started breaking out all over. And my mom said same thing happened to her and didnt clear up fully til she was 26. I am only 20 years old so I can't wait that long. If its not that time of month or not close to it, I just wear nars radiant concealer over blemishes and powder because it can be covered. However it does not look amazing, but heavy coverage foundations day by day breaks me out. So I stay away. I went to a dermatologist a year ago and he put me on medicine that made it worse with no results and then wanted me to go on accutane but my skin is not that bad and my mom is against because of the side effects. Right now I just use first aid beauty cleanser and derma e no more redness cleanser. And moisturizer. My blemishes are red and small and mainly on the cheeks. However, during my period it is all over my face but multiplied by 5x and no way covering it. So if anyone can give me a skincare routine recommendations with products to use (sensitive/dry skin) and possibly makeup.
There are 2 people that I've come to really respect their knowledge of skin care and makeup: Lisa Eldridge and Caroline Hirons. Lisa is exceptional at knowing how to make makeup wear and look better, while Caroline is equally brilliant at understanding the skin and what ingredients it does and does not need--and she is blunt, straight-forward, and speaks from knowledge, not theory. To follow are Caroline's "Things I Say Over and Over Again". I know a lot of my questions have been answered by her blog--especially her "Cheat Sheets", so I'd thought I'd share with y'all in case it helps even just 1 person. Enjoy! 1. You are obsessed with your pores. They do not open and close like doors. You say they are HUGE - then send me a picture and I can SEE NOTHING. We CANNOT see your pores. The only person that can see your pores close-up is your opthamologist - or your boyfriend. Your opthamologist is looking at your eyes. Not your pores. And if your boyfriend is thisclosetoyou and notices your pores? He's gay. Or not attracted to you. Or at best, rude. Rethink the entire relationship. 2. You overuse the Clarisonic. A lot of you. A LOT of you. You can use it - you're just not meant to use it every time you brush your frigging teeth. Step away from the trendy facial tool and wash your bloody face properly. 3. Nothing good ever came from scrubbing your face with a peach kernel. There's a reason they are 99p. Step away. 4. In general, foaming is what you want Fairy Liquid to do. Not your cleanser. And to the brands: I am unapologetic. 5. Freckles are cute. At any age. You will do damage to your skin trying to get rid of them. Leave them alone. Embrace them. 6. Stress is the key to most flare-ups, whether they are acne, rosacea or eczema. Practise relaxation. And not in some hippy-dippy way. Seriously. See the bigger picture. Chill. 7. Inflammation is the root of all evil. Eat less sugar, take more fish oil supplements. A lot of fish supplements. 8. Natural doesn't mean you won't react. Essential oils are one of the biggest triggers for skin. 9. 'Dupes' belong in makeup and nail varnish. There is no 'dupe' for a high quality, years-of-research-behind-it skincare product. 10. Spend your money on supplements, skincare, foundation and concealer and scrimp on the rest. You will look fabulous. 11. If you would spend more on shoes, handbags, lipstick, jeans or fashion in general than you would on high quality skincare - you will be a sixty year old woman (and man) with a vintage wardrobe and a face like an alligator.
So, I am looking for a new palette. Now, I am fair skin with dark brown eyes and hair. As for color choices, it really doesn't matter. I have LORAC'S Pro Palette, UD Feminine Palette and.. one from Bare Minerals (which I cannot remember which one). Suggestions?
I have been using Jurlique Soothing Foaming Cleanser which I really like because 1. It is a very natural cleanser and 2. it has a soothing and not overpowering smell and 3. it doesn't make me break out like some other natural cleansers have (for example boscia botanical blast) . The one real issue that I have with my Jurlique Soothing Foaming Cleanser is that it does not have enough cleansing power to remove my make up/ the day completely. This time around I ordered the balancing cleanser but yikes! people were not exagggerating in reviews about the smell. I don't think that am going to be able to use it with how intense it smells. Does any one have any suggestions for another cleanser along the lines of the Jurlique Gentle Foaming Cleanser but with a little more oomph to it and or another product that I could use in conjunction with the cleanser in order to make it more effective? Thanks!!
I am pregnant and cannot (and don't want to) use tanning beds this summer...I know I will get sun though, and even with sunscreen I will end up getting a tan line. (halter top) I want a quick tan that will last a couple days for each of the weddings, especially the one in late August when I know I will have tan lines. (The other one is next Saturday.) Which of these products do you think I should get? I know it depends on my preference; to be honest, I haven't used self-tanner since high school 10+ years ago so I don't know my preference. http://www.sephora.com/self-tan-bronzing-lotion-P2 61321 http://www.sephora.com/self-tan-bronzing-mousse-P2 61322 http://www.sephora.com/self-tan-bronzing-spray-P26 1323
So summer is just around the corner- what plans do you have for the summer? I hope to get in a couple of kayak trips on local rivers and a day or 2 at the beach. I just love the sound of waves on the sand and those cool ocean breezes!
Hey Girls and New Posters, I never want anyone to feel that they can't ask a question or feel like I'm not supporting them in becoming product savy or wanting to apply makeup in a better way. I know that everyone has to start some where and I've always answered anyone's question veteran or new comer with the best answers I have and also stuck with them until we figured it out. I'm an expressive person and I'm gointg to be truthful and say how I feel so I never ever want any one on here to feel shamed or uncomfortable with any question you may have. I want to make BT a fun but also informative place for new comers or veterans at all times.
Hey everyone! After years of struggling with bad skin, I have finally decided to take on a healthier lifestyle - not just to improve my inner well being, but also my outer (skin, hair, etc.). With that being said, I'm hoping to hear some of your success stories: did drinking more water help improve your skin, did your foundation start working and applying better after making healthy changes, etc. Looking for a little inspiration! I hope to hear from you guys and get your input!
I just started wearing contacts again (it's been over ten years I think) and for some reason they are a bit annoying. I never had this problem before, even when I first started wearing them, so I'm thinking that maybe my eyes have gotten dryer with age or something. I think if I find some good eye drops that will help. I've been using Complete Blink-N-Clean eye drops but they seem to make things worse (blurry). I am SOOOO sick of wearing glasses so I really want to keep using contacts. Can anyone recommend some good eye drops that are safe for contacts that might help?
