Ladies,how do you handle copycats?! Copycats who ask for your opinion be it makeup,clothes,anything you like or want and just post it online to make it as their Own?Ive had it with these kind of people! i have a "friend" who would always ask the brands i like,or the price for the things i acquire and the next thing i know she had a photo on facebook wearing the same item i got! even her husband does that too with my hubby.how annoying is that?! Im too old to post about this but i just dont know how to handle them anymore.they brag about their stuff, and they are annoying as anyone ive ever known.they even STALK us online!!! (Why,hello there!) they're so obnoxious and i couldnt take it anymore! Even the stuff we have at home they would ask us where we bought it and how much its priced. Seriously, they dont know anything about good manners. I dont ever ask someone how much her things are worth,its too personal for me. And having someone as a friend who copies and disrespects u is just so irritating!
I've been watching the news lately and am so saddened by what has happened in Oklahoma. It made me think about "what if I lost everything" (material wise)? One aspect of what i would miss would be my makeup collection. I know it seems super superficial but I would miss it. Is there any way that Sephora could send items to the residents of Newcastle & Moore, Oklahoma who were devastated by the tornado? Shampoo, conditioner, soap, body stuff, makeup? I know it is the least of people's concerns right now and maybe it would be better to do at a later date? I just read a post about people who have a ton of extra Bath & Body Works items (and I know I have a ton of untouched items too)... I wonder if there is someway we could send items to these people? I know that the BT community isnt a place to share super weighty topics but this has been on my heart today.
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
I saw a thread a while back on here about counting your makeup products. It was amazing to see those numbers! While I was reorganzing and going through my makeup since I have moved on to Sephora, and since some things expired and I learned that the hard way lol, I got the silly idea to take a picture of it lol. So if you're bored or just reorganizing your stash, feel free to take a picture and post it! My collection is in the little league range at the moment lol This is my stash after I went through stuff. I don't use my Victoria's Secret kit much anymore since I discovered Sephora, but I still do use the blushes in it and the lip products when I'm at home for the day. The main two palettes I've been using are from Urban Decay and Kat Von D, and I love both! Here's my stash back to organization on my spinny organizer my granny gave me for Christmas. It works well for the moment, but there's no way I can fit my polishes in it lol.
OK, here's a fun one! I did a search but didn't see a similar thread within the top 10 pages- if there's one, my apologies! We all have those great "gone but not forgotten" products- whether it was discontinued, replaced, or Sephora just stopped carrying the line. What are your Sephora favorites of yesteryear that you'd love to be able to buy in-store again? I'll have to think about something a bit older, but I'm bummed that I didn't discover Tarina Tarantino before the brand was on its way out! Her eyeliners and eyeshadow palettes are among my favorites.
hi everyone! so i have previously bought the fresh sugar lip balm and it worked very well, however, im not sure if i will buy it again solely because of the price. in your opinion, is 22 dollars for a lip balm too much to spend? does anyone know of any great natural lip balms either? thanks for any help!!!
Has anyone had experience with getting rid of or diminishing appearance of indented acne scars. The pocks aren't huge, but they exist and I would rather have a cream or gel some sort of application until winter when I have time to get some sort of laser treatment done. Let me know if you've heard of a good one or have tried one that works. On a related note, I also have lingering acne and am looking to try a new product. The scars are currently my priority, though.
Hey guys and gals! As some of you know I am a Caribbean girl and for the first time ever I will be participating in Carnival!! So I already am confident with the makeup I need EXCEPT for foundation (concealer options will be welcome as well). You see I will be playing mas (wearing a costume and dancing) and I need some ideas on a foundation that will last all day in the SUN, humidity, possible rain, the occasional swipe of a towel AND of course, SWEAT. It does not have to have SPF in it as I will be taking care of that with my skin-care. I have normal/oily skin and I wear MAC NW43 or Make Up Forever HD #175. For the record, I am looking at the Cinema Secrets Palettes so it does not have to be from Sephora. Any help is greatly appreciated!!!
Has anyone tried the beautyblender pro yet? I was wondering about the difference between the pink and the black ones. i wanted the pink ones but im more intrigued with the pro even more. Though the price difference is the same at beauty.com. hope beautyblender would come out with a pack of three in white black and pink though! It would be a great deal for first time bb users like me!
I'm looking for a good new show to get into. I always have my classic gilmore girls. I seriously watch it every single day and I've seen every episode like 6 times but it is my favorite show ever. It has just always been my favorite show. Some of my favorites are.. Gilmore Girls Castle Amazing Race Modern Family One Tree Hill (so sad its over) Grey's Anatomy How I Met Your Mother (this is recent.. just started watching on netflix) Big Bang Theory... BAZINGA! and some various others.. What are your favorites?? Especially ones that you LOVE to watch reruns of!
I'm curious if anyone watches Sephora TV? I like the make up ones where they show you applications and give a list of products used at the end, and some of the nail/hair ones. Altho there's no search or favorite functions, does anyone else like or watch them? o.O Aaand I was going to embed a couple of my favorite in here but apparently you can only embed youtube videos and there's no html tab for me to go in and write it in. http://www.sephora.com/sephoratv/sephoratv.jsp?ooi d=BzbXQ3NDoFKUEurBk_xFJ9Q962PtNomR http://www.sephora.com/sephoratv/sephoratv.jsp?ooi d=o2OWlrNTq9qYtQTUYJCHlGme4x0XBw1_
So, it's time to go on an extended no buy. I have more than I could ever enjoy for quite awhile. However, if you have gotten to know me a bit- it's going to be easier said than done! So, this thread is hopefully going to be a support group for me- and anyone else who wants to join me in a summer of no buy. The tricky thing is that I've got about 40% of my toner left and maybe 20% of my daytime moisturizer- and I see pan on my HG concealer. I have to buy the concealer since it's a staple product (and I have used up all of the other concealers that match my skin). I'd like to use up some skincare before repurchasing my daytime moisturizer- but if my skin reacts, I'll revisit the issue. When will the no buy end? I'm not sure, but fall collections will be on counters, if not on the leaves!
Pro Visionary Modeling Foundation Brush #111 vs. Cover FX Brush I need a brush that will work with cream foundation and I am torn between the Sephora one and the Cover FX Cream Foundation brush. How do the 2 compare? I figure the Cover FX one will work with their cream foundation well (which is the one I am fixing to get) but it would be nice to have a more "universal" brush that will work with liquid foundation, which is normally what I get but apply with a sponge. So how do the 2 compare? Can I get the Sephora one and expect the same level of application and look as with the Cover FX one? Thanks!
Hi Sephora I just wanted to thank you for changing your packaging for online orders to bubblewrap envelopes. This is way less wasteful (and still recyclable) and it fit in my mailbox, which means I didn't have to pick it up from post office!!!
They have a new 500pt perk up online. What's included in the Tarte perk.... -Lights, Camera, Lashes! (0.10 oz) -Amazonian Clay Waterproof Cream Eyeshadow in Shimmering Moss (0.10 oz) -Amazonian Clay 12-Hour Blush in Exposed (0.05 oz) -Pure Maracuja Oil (0.23 oz) -Amazonian Clay Finishing Powder (0.07 oz) What do you guys think??? Hasn't this one already been up before or am I confusing it with a another Tarte 500 pt perk???
Everyone who uses tinted moisturizers as opposed or in conjunction with anything has probably noticed that if you have dry, or acne prone, or flaky skin that the tinted moisturizer hides the flakes instead of highlighting them with color. It also helps nurture your skin and keep it balanced. Sometimes I feel the more I use the healthier my skin is and that is what some of them claim to do! My favorite right now and maybe for all of time is Nars Tinted Moisturizer in Finland. Its sooo amazing! Ofcourse concealer sticks help too but when I'm in a hurry this stuff sith a little of the MUFE Pro Finish Powder in 117. Does me perfect for the summer. I LOVE TINTED MOISTURIZERS!!!!!!!! YAY!!!!
Since a few of us are on a "no-buy" it might be a good idea to "shop our stashes" again and encourage eachother to behave! Today I dug out my Too Faced "Fun in the Dark" palette for eyeshadow and blush and then also used two new swap items NARS lipstick "Tzigane" and UD shadow pencil "Rehab".
Hi, I am looking for recommendations for a fragrance-free anti-aging moisturizer for my Mom. She is 71 and has never used a moisturizer because she had oily skin when she was younger and thought a moisturizer would make it worse! I am a loyal Elemis Marine Cream fan but I think the light fragrance would be too much for her. She has super sensitive skin so any moisturizer would have to be absolutely 100% without any scent or irritants. If I can get her to use one product, I will be thrilled. Any suggestions please?
What makeup is everyone wearing today? Today I am wearing: 1. Benefit Hello Flawless Foundation in Champagne 2. Benefit Coralista blush 3. TheBalm Mary-Loumanizer 4. Dior Creme de Rose Lipbalm 5. 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!
I went into the sephora store today and I was looking for a good brand for nightly facial regime (already have a cleanser, just a moisturizer or night cream and a serum or eye cream that work nicely together) hopefully something brightening but doesn't have to be, i have mostly normal skin, with a dime sized dry patch by my chin. Also im in my teens and am already developing slight lines and anti aging would be great ( or preventative) and also a moisturizer with spf that can go under my bare minerals without making the color different (primer does this to me) Any response helps! thanks!!
lately my skin has been awful i have noticed large pores and oily skin just on my nose and dry skin on the rest of my face. i have a good face scrub and i moisturize but this doesn't seem to help does anyone have any advice or products i can use
Hello everyone (: I was looking for a thread on here about sales going on, not only on Sephora but on other websites or stores. I personally like to look for good deals on makeup since I am constantly trying to build up my collection. I thought I would make a thread where we could all post what sales we know or have heard about in stores or online, include any great codes for deals or even products with great prices.
Of course since I am starting it, I thought I would post a couple that I have been looking into.
This is a flash deal website that has awesome deals that are constantly changing, hence the flash deals Today until friday, they have some awesome deals on Tarte products, so check it out if interested!
Right now, tarte is having a discovery sale with items like the Maracuja miracle foundation for $21.00 instead of $42. There are also two eyeshadow palettes on there for $26 each.
I love their shadows! They have three nice color selection palettes to choose from online ranging from $16-$19.
One last item that is not on sale but I consider a great deal is the lorac glogetter palette! It is exclusively sold at ulta for $20! I am definitely getting that soon.
Share any recent used up and trashed products here! Mine is a box of biore nose strips---the box of 6. I've had it for awhile....sometimes I use them religiously every week and go through them like mad and sometimes they go untouched for months.
