Dior Addict Lipstick in 454 6. Benefit Creaseless Cream shadow in RSVP and under all this I am wearing Neutrogena Pure and Free Liquid Sunblock SPF 50 So c'mon now...confess!
Okay so some of you know I went out to Mexico. Reason was for a dentist appointment, everything was done yesterday and today i'm in pain (not excruciating, but I don't want to touch my face much still).. I went to MAC and Sephora for two reasons.. Russian Red and some eyeshadows. Both sephoras have the same eyeshadows for the new artist shadow MUFE so I just started looking at other stuff. I ended up buying 'The real steal' which comes with the benefit they're real mascara and the they're real push up liner. YES, I wanted to try it and I'm not paying extra money for the liner Anyway, I was headed back to where I had parked and a makeup beauty stand in the middle of the mall stopped me, mind you i kept saying no but they pulled me in with their hurried insistance? that even a word? I'm pretty sure the brush they used to appy their mineral foundation was dirty, but I was wearing my glasses so when I took them off reluctantly I couldn't really see. He was so rough when applying that know my cheek where I had work done hurts. I just told them thanks and I'll buy something tomorrow when I get paid. They even told me I should return my sephora stuff to buy theirs.. what? .. Anyway, the foundation he put was like two shades darker than my skin. What was he thinking? Geez. One thing is other kiosks trying to lure you in, but when it's makeup ones.. ugh.
I have colour matched for R106 for foundation. What colour would you suggest for the new YSL Fusion foundation?? I am a 57 year old with dry skin . VIRouge member too!! But I would love a new foundation for fall. Thank you.
I just happened to stop by a SiJCP because I had to make a return and there was a display with 25% off clearance items. A lot of items from the online clearance sale are also there. For eg: the Sephora tropics palette is for $15 online and I got it for $9 for my little cuz. Also the bareminerals ipad case set is $30 online and it was for $20 instore!
My dad's bday is coming up and I'd like to get him some new skincare items. He's in his early 60's, Caucasian, enlarged pores, few eye wrinkles (crow's feet) and that's pretty much it. His skin is in good condition and I want him to keep it that way. For him I want a daytime moisturizer with broad spectrum spf, a cleanser he can use day and night and possibly a night moisturizer. In other words, keep it simple. Also, he does not seem to have sensitive skin and he uses an electric razor so he doesn't need shaving cream. Any suggestions? (And it doesn't have to be just what Sephora sells). Thanks in advance!!!
Zadidoll just posted this find from Urban Decay's website and I have to say I'm smitten. $39 and not yet for sale on their website, but I'm sure it will be available soon. Assuming it will also be available on Sephora at some point? The set contains six deluxe minis with three new shades, Ladyflower (bright rose-pink), Crush and Illicit (sheer baby pink) and three bestsellers Gash, Liar and F-Bomb. Also included is a full-size 24/7 Glide-On Lip Pencil in Ozone. What do you think?
My love for Sephora continues. I was sent a comped, brand new, full sized Dr Dennis Gross Alpha Beta Medi-Spa Peel (launching 08-26-14) to review. I will use it for the first time tonight, so check back to this post if the product interests you.
Hello BT! Today is August 1st and that means another month of hauls! This month is the 2x/3x/4x the points for BI,VIB and ROUGE respectively. This is a great time to stock up on points lost throughout the year! Please share your purchases! Remember, a haul is a haul no matter how big or small!
This picture is from the Charlotte Tilbury line - can you guys help me recreate this eye look with Sephora products? Thanks. I wonder if the red in the Marc Jacob Siren palette could be used? I have that.
I am currently struggling with breakouts. I'm 23..never really had a problem with acne except the occasional spot, but now I break out pretty much everywhere. It is not severe acne; I would say moderate. I get a few spots on my cheeks, around my chin, nose, and forehead, and it's just getting annoying. I have tried various brands: Murad, Origins, drugstore brands, First Aid Beauty (which actually broke me out although I really wanted to love it), and my most recent is Kate Somerville's Detox Cleanser. I do like it since it seems to clear up my spots, but it's soooooo drying. My skin has never been so flaky, even when I follow up with a moisturizer always. I use the cleanser only once a day, moisturizer twice a day, Exfolikate about two times a week, and I just can't stand how flaky I get. If I had to describe my skin, I would say that it is acne prone, and more on the dry side rather than oily. I have just recently ordered a Caudalie kit for hydration. Would this be a good option for my skin even though it is not specifically targeted for acne?
This thought popped into my head this morning and I asked myself, "why do i buy high end products?" I buy a few high end products because there's more options, finishes, and shades to choose from. Do you shop high end because of the different shades and options? or is it because you like brand name products?
I typically use sunscreens that are for the face and body like banana boat, coppertone, or basically any brand that you can find at the drugstore. All of the ones I get say not to put it around your eyes, but I feel like I should do something to protect that area of skin because I never do anything like wear sunglasses to protect my skin. Does sunscreen for your eye area even exist, and if so, does anyone have a good recommendation?
I didn't take a picture so I can't really show you what I'm talking about unfortunately. I went in for a lesson on how to apply false eyelashes and I felt it went fairly well except for the fact that there was a space between my false eyelashes and real eyelashes. I felt it was noticeable for anyone speaking face to face with me. Can you apply eyelashes so there isn't really a space? Like is it bad to have them sitting on top of your real lashes? I don't really know. My pair is from Make Up For Ever if that helps?
I've always stuck to neutral pink/red or bold red lip shades. I'd really like to experiment a bit more with new colours this fall - darker! More plum/purple/brown tones. But I'm also a little bit nervous. I've got fair skin (cool undertones), brown eyes (pretty dark), and brown hair with quite a bit of red in it (like a dark auburn almost). Any suggestions? I think I'm going to pick up Givenchy Le Rouge in Violine Precieux, although I think that's a fairly safe shade to pick. I've also been eyeing the new Bite shades - but none of the stores near me have them in stock yet has anyone had a chance to swatch them or see what they look like in person?
I recently bought tarte liquid foundation-tan honey shade. At the store she put a blush on me (I didn't buy it then) copied down the shade and LOST the name. It was tarte and perfect for my skin tone. I have a reddened tone and the foundation was great but the blush that was a non-pink color helped my skin tone also. Any ideas what shade I should buy for the blush and not redden my skin color to help compliment the foundation? thanks!!
I've been applying SPF 30 to my face for years...but I haven't been regularly applying it to my neck. This year, I was out in the sun all day and my arms/shoulders and neck got some color. Now I look like a pale polka dot on top of a tan body when I put my foundation on! Can you help with some ideas on how to not make this look so different? I wear Cover FX G30 with their anti aging primer and setting powder. It is a perfect match to my facial skin, but looks a little paler than my collarbones and shoulders. Should I wear some bronzer or use some other kind of contouring makeup? Should I put self tanner on my face? I hesitate to do that because I have rosacea and some dark spots and I don't want that to look worse. Could you recommend some brands or where to place it so it looks natural? Thank you thank you!!
I see that lots of others have had the same trouble with missing samples. I hardly ever shop at the Sephora store just because they never have any samples at all. :-( So I order online especially to try out new things. Some of my favorites have been discoveries I've made only because of samples, e.g., Dior Addict Fluid Stick in Aventure: Once I tried the sample, I couldn't wait to buy it! (I actually got it at the store, because I couldn't wait!) So it is just so, so disappointing when I don't get the samples along with my order. It happened again today. I tore apart all the packaging and the paper filler and everything, just couldn't believe my Ole Henriksen Sheer Transformation sample wasn't in there, especially since it is listed on the packing slip. But it's not there. I could understand if they ran out of a particular sample and replaced it with something else, but that's not the case. This is not the first time it's happened, either. I've always felt like, well, it's a freebie, I shouldn't complain, but now it's happened again and I do feel like it shouldn't be offered if it's not going to be fulfilled. My customer experience: Not So Good.
Have you guys seen these?! There are tons of shades and finishes to choose from, and you can build your own palette! I can't wait to try these; I wonder if Sephora will carry all of the shades? There are so many and I'd really like to go in and test a good chunk of them. http://www.sephora.com/artist-shadow-P387670?skuId =1622745
I'm planning my fall outfits and I decided that mostly I will wear this cool style. However what kind of makeup do you think I should do? I was thinking something simple like glowing skin and ponytail and maybe a red lip??? I'm just curious what you guys think... Thanks
I love Benefit and its tints (for my cheeks, that is). They're not all created equally though. Yes, they are a beautiful collection of red, pink, orange and purple. While you can dot, dab or draw a line of Benetint, Cha Cha Tint and Posie tint and take a few seconds to rub them in, you must rub Lolli in very fast to prevent streaks. I suggest applying it one handed with the other hand up there right away to blend. You can also apply the tint to your finger and quickly rub it into your face. Forget brushes. With Lolli, there is no time. A customer asked my Benefit brow specialist about the tints today. When she did not know the answer, I filled the customer in. She told me I just sold her on the product and proceeded to buy it. Then, my Brow Specialist started asking me how to work the tints today. I thought if I can help a Benefit rep, others may have questions. She had only tried Lolli and had no clue the other three were easier to work with. Hopefully, other people who start with Lolli are not afraid to try the other three. Anyway, if you have questions about the tints, post them here. Someone will fill you in. If anyone is interested, I can provide swatches as well.
Afternoon BT! I got the Medi-Spa Peel from Dr. Dennis Gross from Sephora au gratis and these are the results. Today 8/22 is Day 1. I will switch off each day with Alpha Beta Original strength peels. Results with 1 use: smoothed my skin, reduces a majority of redness, helped dry up 2 under the skin pimples that have been driving me crazy, and my skin glows! *I never ever post pictures of my skin without make up or some additional skin care but you all are so nice it makes it much easier!* Here we go! Before: AFTER : So Far So Good DDG never disappointing with his products. The pads felt softer than the AB.Peels, and they have specific directions to follow for actually putting it on your face. Very easy to follow. The smell is mellow compared to the peels. I'll update every other day as I use the Medi-Spa peel but I'll take pictures every day Cheers!
My sister loves this look and I have to re-create it for her for an event on Friday. I've tried it on myself a few times but just can't get that purple right. Any suggestions? Does anybody out there know which purple this is...brand? Thanks in advance!!
I currently use Tarte BB Tinted Treatment Primer and I love it. I don't wear much make up, but need sun protection for my lupus. And I like something with a lot of coverage to hide my redness. But I'm finding that in the Georgia humidity, it's getting cakey very quick. I love the light mousse texture for my sensitive, combo skin. Any suggestions for another light BB or CC cream?
