The lovely MYchoi was fabulous enough to offer to ship me some delicious treats from California to Pennsylvania. She knows I LOVE Asian food but have no Asian markets near my homestead. Here are some of the wonderful things she included: ^Large flat rate box JAM-PACKED with goodies! ^Seaweed. ^Melon flavored gummies (one of my favorites!) and melon flavored hard candies. ^Green tea, panda, and strawberry pocky. I busted into the green tea pocky IMMEDIATELY! ^Various crackers/biscuits/pies. ^Bae, various mochi, and green tea swiss rolls (another fave). ^Strawberry Calpico, aloe drink, and melon yogurt drink. Do any of you have any favorite Asian foods, or foods from your culture or other cultures that you love?

I just turned 30 and have been using OH Truth Serum for a few months. I'm wondering if it's worth the extra $40 to switch to Caudalie's Firming Serum? The price tag is really steep, and I'm curious to know if it is really that much better. Any feedback is appreciated.
This box is for Hall of Famers or BT members who have 1000+ hearts, or (people that I have successfully traded with individually are able to join as well). This box is open for US shipping only. The shipping becomes more expensive for Canada, and takes longer due to border checks. Once I get the box back I pick out some items and then give the items to 'The River' (a local organization that takes and redistributes new and used items to women in need. I've given beauty products to this organization before and they're really good. * Please make sure every item is in a plastic ziplock bag to prevent spills. Donts’s ■ DON'T keep the box for more than three days. Keep it moving! If you are traveling or a special circumstance comes up, we can work to rearrange things. (ALSO YOU MUST INCLUDE A TRACKING NUMBER it makes it more fun anticipating your turn) ■ DON'T put unsanitary items of any sort into the TSB. We don't want to get sick :/ ■ DON'T put any drugstore items into the TSB. ■ No reserve items in the box for others, and don’t ask to have any items reserved for you. This is unfair to others participating. ■ DON'T swatch items from the box. This is a hygienic precaution that we must take, as a lot of people will be handling these items. ■ DON'T take more than one of the same sample if multiples exist. Share the love! (unless you ask and everyone is ok with it) ■ DON'T take more than what you put in. Please trade at or above each item’s retail value. Do’s ♥ Please contribute high-end beauty products only. No drugstore items. If you have questions or you are unsure of an item, ask! ♥ Unused items are preferred. Swatched or lightly used products are perfectly acceptable, well-loved items are not. Again, if you’re unsure, ask! ♥ Swatched/used items must be labeled as such. ♥ All opened items must be cleaned/sanitized prior to their addition to the box. ♥ Send your address to the person above you in a PM. ♥ Package things carefully! Try to leave the TSB in better condition than you found it ♥ Have items that can spill (skincare, perfume, etc) in a leakproof locked plastic bag. ♥ Most importantly, share your experience! Please post a photo and a description of the box, what you took, and what you contributed. Allowed : ☆High-end, clean makeup/skincare items (including makeup bags, brushes, etc. If you have questions, just ask!) ☆Fragrance (be sure to package bottles properly!) ☆Nail polish (again, be careful!)

If you cannot take photos, please Do Not Sign Up. Final Verdict on Mascara- A lot of the GWP mascaras are not sealed. It is ok to include these mascaras in the box ONLY IF THEY ARE UNUSED. Please be honest (it's a matter of health!). Also, please be aware that some of the mascaras may be dried out upon opening them. Only open them if you selected them as your item. Please be honest when it comes to this. Also, please have a box ready, prior to receiving the box. This is so we can streamline things (get the box to everyone faster in case the box breaks or there's a spill). NOTHING THAT CAN'T BE CLEANED or SANITIZED -send your address to the person above you once the list is finalized. -post a picture and text what you are taking and what you put in before you send the box on.

There was someone who was going to do a foils/small sample TSB. I do not believe that person is still going to do it. If they are, I apologize and will not do one. I have been in two boxes and loved it but I have never started one. If anyone is still interested, I am willing to try to start one. We can use the same rules from the other TSB. Please let me know if anyone is interested. Also we need to decide if we want to do this with a small flat rate box (I believe shipping is around $6.00) or a medium flat rate box (I believe shipping is around 13.00). If you are going to participate, please be prepared for the shipping costs! This box is open for US shipping only. Shipping becomes more expensive for Canada. Once we decide if we want to do a small or medium box I will post pics of what I will start the box out with. If at that time someone decides they don't like what I am starting the box out with just let me know. I want this to be fun for all. Once I get the box back I will go through it & give the leftover items to the local youth group who works with the homeless shelters in Fredericksburg VA.

Hi there! My face is lighter and has a pink undertone (I also have some light acne scars and rosacea) compared to my neck, which is slightly darker with a yellow undertone. I've tried the following: 1) A yellow undertone foundation that completely matches my neck: when I apply this though, my face still looks pink compared to my neck -- doesn't look quite right. 2) A neutral foundation shade, which also makes my face look either too orange or pink compared to my neck. I'd love any advice on how to deal with this! My neck and face just look disjointed all the time. Any help would be much appreciated! Thanks in advance.
Hi ladies and gents, In keeping with the haul tradition, I thought I'd go ahead and start one for March! I can't WAIT to see all your fun and colorful goodies for the upcoming Spring season . This post is welcome to all, and as lilahtov said, a haul is a haul no matter how small .
I have way too many perfumes and I think the oldest is probably 6 years old. I still wear it from time to time but I wonder if perfume goes bad or expires. I keep them on a shelf in my closet away from direct sunlight and moisture. Have you ever had a perfume go bad on you? What's the oldest perfume you own?
Lately I've been bored with my makeup , ive watched Sephora , youtube videos. Pinterest , tumblr ect. pictures for natural makeup (for high school) but nothing getting my inspired or giving me ideas! any looks you go back to over and over?
i was interested in the kat von d lock it foundation, and concealer because i seen youtube videos and i love the flawless full coverage it gives. i have severe scars and acne to cover up. MY routine is to shower wash my face and moisturize, but for about 4 hours im super flaky and dry even with applying moisturizer, BUT therafter im a complete greaseball and i think i look so gross i hate it, i see flaky seperation with my foundation in my tzone. btw i use porefessional from benifet for my primer on my face.... please help,
Has anyone figured out how these mailers are generated? Every month a mailer goes out to pick up the deluxe sample of the month at Sijcp. Last month it was a vinyl drawstring bag filled with about 5 deluxe samples. No purchase is necessary. I figured I would ask here since no one from Sephora or JCPenny can figure it out.
Hi ladies, Is it weird that I use other items like dark brown eyeshadow as a bronzer? it shows up on my skin a lot better and you don't have to use such a heavy hand because it's already really pigmented saving you product! I like to use other eyeshadows as a highlight or cream blush as a lip color (though it can be a little drying). Does anyone else do this? Also, what items do you multipurpose with? xoxo, Kelly saving money YAY
Hey, im 15 and have i combination skin (oily in the t-zone). Every time I apply foundation, it never seems to smudge and if i try my begins to be very dry and irritated. Is there any thing that can fix this problem? Also,applying moisturizes never seems to help.
I was on Reddit's Makeup Addiction and user MyLittleLabMonkey posted a sneak preview of the new Too Faced Summer Collection. I didn't find a previous discussion on it, so sorry if it's a repost! All I could find is that the launch date is in April. First pics are from reddit, the last one I found on a UK site. Found some more info on the UK site: Too Faced Summer 2014 Collection A La Mode Eyes Palette – New This new eyeshadow palette features 9 new shades. Bonjour Soleil Palette – New & Limited Edition Shades: Chocolate Soleil – mate bronzer Sun Bunny – natural bronzer Snow Bunny – luminous bronzer Brow Envy Palette – Includes two eyebrow powders, setting wax and a brow highlighter Liquid Lipstick – Available in 6 rich and pigmented shades with a long-wearing formula.

Been trying to die Too Faced products. What do you guys think? :EDIT: "been trying to die" wowwww... it's been a long day. I meant to type "been dying to try." Hahha
There is this new nail polish that I came across in a vogue magazine. it's called REVLON Parfumerie Scented Nail Enamel! It had African Tea Rose and Autumn Spice (sample smelly things on the page). OMG!! it smelled soooo f'ing good! The Autumn Spice was my favorite. It smelled like pumpkin spice mixed with fall. I now want it in my hands!! I wish I could've ripped that page out and taken it home with me, but that would involve me sniffing the d*mn thing every 5 mins. Just wanted to tell you about this amazing nail polish
Hey guys, I subscribe to Ipsy and received a Pop Beauty lip gloss in my February box. The color was beautiful but it smelled off, like burnt plastic of some sort. Regardless, I tried it on my lips just to review the color and it tasted terrible. I thought that the product was supposed to be that way, so I put it aside and decided not to use it. Then I saw someone post on BeautyTalk that they manufacture the mini samples in Asia and the full size in the US. I figured the company was outsourcing but I didn't really care since I am not really of fan of Pop Beauty to begin with. Pop Beauty finally posted this on their Facebook: "Dear Ipsters, Unfortunately some of you received a POP Plump Pout Mini with an “off” taste or smell as part of the IPSY send-out in February. We want to address this issue and explain exactly what we have been doing about it. First and foremost we want to assure you that all of the ingredients used in the Plump Pout Mini, which are listed on the shrink wrap on the product packaging, are FDA approved and 100% safe for use. The reason for the disparity between the ingredients listed on the product packaging and the website is that the full size version of the Plump Pout Mini is manufactured in the USA, while the Mini is manufactured in Taiwan. We recently reformulated the product, and our factory in Taiwan used the new formula to make the Mini. We apologise if you have had a negative experience with this gloss. We have never encountered a problem of this nature with our products, and we assure you that we are taking this very seriously. If you feel that you have received a defective Plump Pout Mini, please do not hesitate to e-mail POP’s customer service at the e-mail address below. We guarantee that every e-mail will receive a response. Yours sincerely, POP beauty firstname.lastname@example.org" I've read several posts about people complaining to POP and Ipsy and were able to receive replacements, so I just wanted to spread the info!
I have combination skin with a very oily T-Zone. Im 16 years old and obviously don't have a lot of money to spend on makeup. What would you suggest to use? (Suggest high end and drug store) I'm currently using covergirl outlast 3 in 1 but I am pretty fair skinned and this foundation OXIDIZES on me. so I want something that has decent coverage but will match up and blend well, and last long without me getting oily. thanks !
I have tried everything at this point to stop the oil from forming on my forehead. Nothing seems to work. Not even setting powder. I have changed face washes and even wash my face in the morning when I wake up. This is starting to drive me bonkers. Any suggestions on how to stop the oil from forming in my t-zone. Any products that work well? Please help me out here.
Hi- I'd love advice on a couple of things: -What's the best concealer for dark circles? And also what's a good brush to put it on with? -Also what's a good powder to minimize pores, hide fine lines, and ideally give a little bit of a glow/glimmer? Thanks, Jessica
