oily and dehydrated
I always knew that my skin is oily, but I think my skin is also dehydrated....because I rarely drink water.. heheh.   I did a search and a lot of people recommended drinking more water (duh), Clinique Moisture Surge, and Korres Greek Yogurt Moisturizing Face Cream. Is there anything else that you can recommend?

so what's the difference between the two Guerlain Meteorites?
I noticed there's one in 3 different shades for $60 and one for $70 with a pouf.  What's the difference and which one does a super fair girl like me need?

High-end products with an excellent value (The Hourglass Arch Brow Pencil)
I recently bought the HOURGLASS Arch Brow Sculpting Pencil, because of the great reviews. I was going through a Brow Wiz way too quickly. When I found out the Hourglass pencil is 0.014oz, for $32 ($37CAD), compared to 0.003oz $21($27) for the Brow Wiz, I was sold. If you compare the 2, the brow wiz is so much more expensive! You would pay $98 ($126 CAD) for the same amount of product! I even compared it with drugstore products and it's still a better value.   So, my question is, do you have any other go-to products that you think have such a great value?

Does anyone know of a website where I can find the PH levels in skin care? Or of any brands of ph testing strips that are good? My skin has gone through some medical changes lately and the PH balance of my skin if just all over the place.

Wanted: Eyebrow Brush
What brush would you recommend for crisp lines? I use the Anastasia Dipbrow Pomade and the #12 brush. But I find that the brush is still thick and creates rough edges. I would love a very crisp, thin angled brush to make application smoother.  I would love to check out any recommendations.  xo

AUGUST APPRECIATION: BEAUTY INSIDER/VIB/VIB ROUGE ?
Hi all ! I know that August is one of the best times to shop at Sephora because of the great perks, extra points and all those goodies. Has anybody heard anything about this yet? Any posters or in-store sightings? I'm so excited and we're one week away and I haven't heard anything yet! Ah !!! Doesn't 2x, 3x, or 4x (depending on membership) sound awesome? I really hope that Sephora hasn't forgotten...Hoping for bigger and better things this year, not to say that last years wasn't too shabby itself.    Let's end this with a question: Q: What was your favorite perk/part/time of August Appreciation Month?    My answer: I love the whole month, even though promos change weekly, I loved the VIB Bag w/samples and the 3x points, pretty sweet

UD Perversion Mascara: Collective Thoughts?
So my UD Perversion Mascara and Primer came in the mail today, and so far, I really like it! While it doesn't quite compare to my HG YSL BabyDoll, it does give some nice volume (especially when layered over  the primer) and lengthens my lashes quite a bit. Plus the packaging is gorgeous, all though not quite what I would call perverse lol. Anyone else tried it yet? Thoughts? Pictures?

HYDRATION!!!.....while using Retin A
Im currently on my 3rd week using Retin A and my skin has become dry and flakey. Apparently this is normal until my skin adjust to the retin. Im seeking an affordable cleanser (preferably cream based), i also need a good SPF moisturizer. I have to stay away from anything citrus in order not to irritate my skin (while on retin citrus and alcohols can irritate and cause bad redness). Also, i prefer something with minimal alcohol in the products. I cant afford to lose anymore hydration lol. I cant wait until my "Ugly" phase is over. Only 3 weeks in and my skin is almost acne clear. Im hoping the dreadful 4-6 weeks horror stories of purging does NOT come my way, Id really appreciate any suggestions from my fellow beauties.

Keeping seasonal lippy inventory
So two nights ago I decided to pull out all my lippys and take a sorta inventory on colours and items that would be useful for summer looks. I ended up sitting there with cotton pads and systematically applying and removing one after the other, deciding if I would wear each colour this season or not.   I must say I'm sitting pretty with quite a few bright summery lippys. the colours I deemed too dark were shuffled to the back of my drawer. i ended up putting six lippys aside for either my mother or my sister to pick at if they choose cause I thought they were mistakes for me.  In the end I feel much more organized, with a better sense of what I own and my lips are super exfoliated from all the swiping and wiping.   how do the rest of you keep track of your inventory?  Or do you?   It just occurred to me that I should have been disinfecting my lippys as I went.... Oh well.

Would you consider this palette hoarding?
I was at a friends last night and we ended up watching episode after episode of hoarders which was shocking and frightening at the same time.  Today I read a comment asking to see my makeup collection so I pulled out my palettes out of their respective drawers for a photo and realized I have more than I thought. Also I realized how anxious I was about my hubby coming up and seeing how many I own. needless to say, they went back very quickly!  I'm wondering if this is too many or if I'm just sitting pretty. I do use them all save for the nars ones.  how many palettes do you own? do you use them all?

Korres price increase
I was browsing around the Korres page to see the new stuff that has come in, and I noticed the price increase in my favorite, Wild Rose cream. I know prices increase every year, but a sudden $3 increase? Who am I kidding I'll still buy it ...ahh...why must I love it so much? I wonder how they determine which products/brands they'll increase pricing for?   On a side note, has anyone tried the new Black Pine line? I'm so tempted to try it.

Boscia's luminizing black mask
I've recently been on a hunt for a clay mask to combat the pores, black heads, and deep cleansing and have fallen in love with the results Boscia's black mask gave   but I've found the peeling off process to be very irritating and reddening (?).. but otherwise its "just right"  does anyone have tips/tricks to use this in a less irritating but still get as much benefit?

Is there a primer that's similar to Kat Von D's Rehab Priming Elixir?
Hi everyone! I recently received an email from Sephora that Kat Von D's Rehab Priming Elixir has been discontinued, and I am just heartbroken. I don't think anything else goes with the Lock-It Tattoo Foundation as much as it did. Does anyone know why it went out of stock or if it will ever be back in stock? I'm afraid that I'm just gonna have to suck it up and find a new holy grail primer.   I have oily and acne prone skin. I have tried many primers out there. Benefit's The Porefessional and Too Faced Primed & Poreless- makes ANY makeup melt off of my face and I think it feels like grease. Smashbox More Than Primer Blemish Control feels a little sticky on my skin. Bareminerals Prime Time oil control primer is okay. Make Up For Ever's HD Microperfecting primer is good. But neither of these did what the Rehab Priming Elixir has done for me. Can anyone recommend something similar?

Most used products and the ones we always repurchase!
I am sure we all have some products that we use the most and then we "run" to Sephora (or other stores) to repurchase and stock up on it, with a thought - "Just in case or I am about to finish up my other one, so I might as well pick up a back up now... etc" .    What are your most used products, the ones you know you'll go and repurchase no matter what?    Mine are: - Anastasia Brow Wiz -  ohh boy - this is one of my little fave things that I use the most and I buy few of them a year, just because I use it so often. - Nars Creamy Consealer - does its job, so smooth and gives me the coverage I need! - When Travelmate face masque <3 - so amazing, portable, and  travel safe/mess free!!
