Hey Ladies, I hate to bother, but could anyone buy a $25 dollar item for me online because I don't have a credit card (15-years-old)! I'll PM you the info, etc. and I'll send you CC in an envelope (I have an online shop that uses CC so it's always worked out). Please! I promise I'll pay you back but I've been wanting this Guerlain bronzer forever and it's on sale! I mean it's GUERLAIN. por favor. xoxo, Kelly
I was swirling my powder brush in my Guerlain Meteorites and a lone ball jumped out of my tin and into the sink! OMG, nooooooooooo!!! So I picked up the little bugga, and put him on a kleenex to dry. I can't even think about putting him back in my tin with the clean balls. But I also can't bear to think about throwing him in the trash. He is a lone ranger sitting on the counter. He is white and sparkly btw.
Heh, I just lost 40-50 hearts in the last 20 min, so either someone suddenly decided that they REALLY don't like me, or some threads I got really passionate on got deleted. Which reminded me of something: - Can you please notify the original poster when a thread is closed or deleted? I know mods move threads around to appropriate sections, and recently have started to post a note about closed threads, but last time one of my thread was closed, it was done quietly and since I made the thread, I would like to be notified if it's closed. - Can we/the poster please have the option to edit the title of the thread? I'm not sure how easy/difficult this would be, but it would be very much appreciated if we can have this option. - Can we please please please have the subscription page somewhere obvious? It's almost impossible to find it. I subscribe to threads I'm interested in but it takes me ages to find the page where we manage our subscriptions. Perhaps put a little icon beside the PM on our side profile? or some link on our main profile page? And the font color / size / family still don't work . I would appreciate the option to make my posts pretty. Thanks!
I have extremely oily skin in my T-Zone as well. I literally have tried The Becca Ever Matte Primer, MUFE Mat Velvet +, Nars the Matte foundation, I've tried almost all of the oil-free and oily skin drugstore foundations. I need some serious advice... Maybe I'm doing something wrong? I have to powder within 1-2 hours of applying my makeup. Also, I have acne prone skin, and I feel like giving up. Please, help a girl out!
Hi ladies, I was using my untouched givenchy Photo'Perfexion foundation today and after 5 hours of wear I started getting tons of little pimples in my t-zone. My skin has been so great lately and it sucks that I have to deal with this. Any suggestions? Thanks in advance. xoxo, Kelly
Howdy ladies! After all the good deals this yr I've completely exhausted my spending and any reason to buy anything. I will be on a no buy until mid-Jan (if Jan really is skincare month then that means I've still got 15 days after that for whatever promo, no excuse!) My Christmas/New Year resolution is to spend just enough to qualify for VIB for the rest of the year , and I'm going to try fund most of it through Swagbucks/Bing Rewards/Ebates (PM me if you want to know more about those sites). With that said, this is a no buy thread for the first 30 days, a palate cleanser if you will, for next year. Anyone/everyone is welcome to join me. This is not meant to bash any particular products, but if you post then I'll give you reasons why you should delay the purchase, consider the alternative, or why you don't need it. I will keep all my disabling to this thread, so please, ladies, let's not turn this into an enable thread . =P Now then, will I succumb to exciting advertisements and fancy packaging? or will I hold onto my will power and succeed in actually saving some money?
I have a very sensitive skin and slightly oily.. Please help me by suggesting face wash, toner, moisturizer for day and night and night cream.. Products that are not too expensive would be extra nice.. Thank you!
Hey everyone! My skin is very fair and I am trying to find a bronzer. I have heard a lot about Benefit Hoola and the Too Faced milk chocolate bronzer. But my question is which one of these is lighter in color?
Wow. Who knew I would be so close before the ending of this year. I think it's mainly due to all the xmas gifts I bought from Sephora. I know everyone has been having mixed feelings about Rouge but I'm excited to reach this level because I enjoy shopping at Sephora so much. I think it's time for me to go out and buy the Naked 3! I'm just glad I didn't force myself to buy things I didn't need to finally reach Rouge. How did you feel when you hit Rouge? Or how far are you from it if you haven't hit it yet?
Okay so I used to have decent eyebrows naturally, but one day I got overzealous with my tweezers and ruined them. My brows used to be twins but now they're like sisters (maybe cousins). For whatever reason I can't color match a product for my eyebrows to save my life (and neither can the SAs at Sephora)! I need a brow powder/brow gel/brow product match. Any suggestions?
hello! i wanted to try some products sold in sephora for my extremely chapped lips....i've tried burt's bees chapstick, the brand chapstick, maybelline my baby lips, etc. nothing is working very well for me. i prefer a tube-like product, so i don't have to dip my fingers in the actual product, but please PLEASE help! thanks so much! happy holidays! xo
Can I just say that I got mine today and I want to stick my entire face in it and just rub it around. It smells SO good! And the colors... ohh the colors, be still my heart. It's my new favorite toy. Anyone else get their hands on it yet?? What do you guys think?
If you got a $50 Sephora gift card this very second, and what would you buy? Personally, I would maybe get the Nars blush in Mata Hari and anorther MJB nail polish? They've both been on my list for a while... http://www.sephora.com/blush-P2855?skuId=221382 http://www.sephora.com/enamored-hi-shine-nail-lacq uer-P380707?skuId=1511328
I was wondering if a mod could please help me When will the Nars Ita brush #21 come back in stock? I've been wanting this brush for a while now and I'd prefer to purchase it from Sephora. I talked with Nordstrom's and they aren't planning on carrying it anymore ( muuuwahhhh I'm not sure if NARS is discontinuing this brush… Seems unlikely as it's really popular.
I'm considering buying a backup for the Chantecaille Rose Petals highlighter because it's my HG highlighter and LE. But it's $74 and I'm having some trouble pulling the trigger. I can't help but think that in a year I'll have found a new favorite highlighter and will regret my $74 purchase. Just FYI, I own all of the favorite highlighters (the Balm Mary Lou, Nars Albatross, BECCA shimmering skin, High Beam, Watts Up, the MAC limited edition Archie one, Nars Copacabana and 2 hourglass ambient light powders) and nothing has compared to the Chantecaille. What do you guys think? What are your 'standards' for buying a backup of a limited edition product? What backups do you currently have waiting in the wings?
I am doing my makeup in the morning and looks great but once i go to my car and turns red on... here is my routine.. I do my morning routine, cleanser, toner, and moisturizer. primer concealer (makeup forever, to cover little scaring). my foundation (which i tried, stila, lancome, clinique, and estee lauder double wear) set it with a powder (translucent) Bronzer (sometimes) Nars blush.. I do not know what im doing wrong. this happens to me with every single foundation... PLEASE HELP!
I have tried multiple high end foundation but continue to break out any time I wear them. I will wake up with my skin starting to clear up and as soon as I put makeup on I will breakout throughout the day. My mom has always warned me and said she had the same problem as well until her late 30's. I've tried Hourglass Immaculate Liquid to Powder foundation as well as Clinique Acne Solutions. I need something to either reduce or cover up all of the redness the acne has left behind.
I've tried using primers and setting with powder and it still seems to crease. Is there any tricks to how I can keep it from creasing? And btw, are there any other concealers similar to the Erase Paste without all the creasing?
Does anyone have this lippy? I'm really contemplating it but I'm not sure how it compares to UD's Anarchy, which I already own. (Kind of a sucker for very bright or very dark lips, seldom neutral which is kind of weird. ) Anyway, if anyone has swatches or input, I'd appreciate it!!
I have super long lashes that are curled upwards naturally. I have no idea how to apply top winged eyeliner, my lashes always get in the way. I've tried every type of liquid liner. I've even stretched my eye to one side in hopes to move my lashes. Nothing works. Anyone know a good technique to tackle these long lashes and get the perfect winged eyeliner?
Well, my Mom survived **major** back surgery this past week, and is in recovery. I flew out to take care of her during her first week. Since she is out of commission and taking major pain meds, she is not feeling too pretty or in control... so to make her feel better and beautiful, I brought a holiday nail supply kit and did her nails. She loved it so much, and now is feeling very feminine and in the holiday spirit. Funny what a little love and enamel can do! Here is her new look for the holidays:
I have naturally long and curly eyelashes. They always get in way of doing top eyeliner. I've tried every type of liquid liner. If I try to use liquid liner the liner gets stuck in my lashes and makes them clumpy and hard. I've even tried to pull my eye to one side to try and move my lashes out of my way. Anyone with a similar issue have any techniques or tips?
Hello beauties and cuties! Pay close attention. Several people told me that Formula X Top Coat was a dupe for my beloved Dior Gel Coat. Being my thrifty self, I ordered a bottle of Formula X. It did not last from after dinner to nighty nite time! There is no substitute for Dior Gel Coat! Please make a note of it!
Thought I would try my hand at questions this time. Here goes... 1. Do you celebrate Christmas or some other gift-giving holiday this time of year? 2. Have you purchased anything from Sephora to give as a gift? If so, what? 3. Share one good thing that's brightened your day today (it's OK to say nothing if you've had a particularly crappy day). 4. What's your favorite mascara? 5. What is your ideal career? 6. Do you have any siblings (half siblings count)? If so, do you get along with them? 7. Share one of your favorite holiday traditions (if you have any). Here are mine: 1. I celebrate Christmas. 2. Not so far... 3. A text conversation I just had with my mother in walkie talkie lingo, where we addressed each other as "[work name] slave." 4. Right now I'm digging Sephora's Full Action mascara but I can be swayed. 5. Recording artist (preferably with my band) 6. I have a sister that I mostly get along with, even though she's my polar opposite in almost every sense. 7. One of my favorite things to do is go for a walk with my entire family on Christmas night to a particular street where everyone owns a huge house and the Christmas lights/displays/décor is insane. One house is so completely covered in lights it's dizzying to look at. Ok, enough of me. Let's hear about you!
