I have a few samples/palettes that require lip brushes for application. I bought the Sephora Collection Pro Lip Brush #81 (shown below), but I'm not a fan of it. Perhaps I don't know how to use it. Either way, I'm not getting the results I want. Anyone have a suggestion on a lip brush for dummies? It doesn't have to be from Sephora. I'd also be okay with someone telling me exactly how to use a lip brush.
Shaking my head!! someone posted this on Sephora's Facebook page and I really hope they do something about it. Instead of canceling orders for "fraud prevention", I think Sephora should spend some time preventing this from going on. How is it even possible that someone has 13 reward cards to sell?
I've recently invested in a skincare routine, after years of never really using anything. I'm 27, and around 23-24 I started breaking out a ton! I have acne scars and combo oily skin. These are the products that II purchased: philosophy pure mattness cleaner, shiiseido pureness toner, camu camu vitamins c serum, OTC acne cream, korres yogurt moisturizer, and Lancôme visionarire. Can someone put these in the correct order for use? Also, should I add anything?
Hello all! I am doing a secret Santa at school with a bunch of friends and I am trying to figure out what to get. We are juniors in high school and I know the girl I have wears makeup often. Any ideas? Looking to spend less than $25. Only thing I could find was this Too Faced palette. What do you think? http://www.sephora.com/jingle-all-the-way-P383427
So my boyfriend and I have been together for almost three years now, dating, and have known each other for five or six. He turned 21 back in July so I feel like we're getting further and further into that 'adult' world. So for Christmas I wanted to mix things up and get him things I know he likes [Video games, some custom stuff, etc] but also some things that are a bit more mature [The mini Art of Shaving Kit, though I bought it because I really like the cute little brush] and would like to get him a cologne as he's never had one before. So I guess my question is, do you pick out a cologne that you like for your significant other or do you let them pick on their own? I want it to be a surprise so I don't want him to come to the store with me to pick, and I also sampled two yesterday that I loooove but I'm not sure he'd like because well, this is new for him [though he likes whatever I put on myself so I'd like to think I can pick things that he'd like for him to...]. So I'm torn between getting him one of the two that I liked or the Fragrance Sampler and letting him pick something from that [though it has neither of the two that I like and it makes me a little sad but I can deal]. I mean no matter what I do Sephora has a great return policy so we could always come back and exchange it out for something else, but I'd rather get it done in one swoop.
I'm stumped on ideas for small gifts to buy my kids' teachers. Any teachers out there who could tell me what gifts you love to receive? Any ideas are appreciated! 2 of the teachers are male mid-to-late 20's. 1 female early 20's and 1 female late 30's.
A while back I posted a thread about products or techniques that have changed your makeup, skincare or hair care. http://community.sephora.com/t5/Off-Topic/Products -and-or-Techniques-that-Changed-Your-Makeup-Skinca ... On weekends I like to try new things, either products or techniques. Today in particular I had numerous epic fails. From one of my shadows shattering in the case (new, too, ugh) to a new BB cream providing zero coverage and actually turning my face red, to the second time this week cascading glitter all over my face from my eye shadow!! LOL I had to use makeup remover to take some stuff off it was so bad. Just wondering if anyone else experiences the same. I do like to change things up, but it doesn't always mean success.
So I buy minis of mascaras because even though I use my mascara almost every day I can't seem to use it up.....it's been 5 months now that I have had my mini benefit they're real and I still think it works just fine. I really want to try to use it up or at least wait till it dries out. Do I have to throw it away??
I was wondering but searched and did not find anything here about it (not surprising, it's not sold at Sephora, unfortunately). if not, what is your hand care routine to keep your hands soft and smooth? Do you have one? Any great products you can recommend?
So every year around this time I start watching Christmas movies. Some I own some I watch on TV. What are some of your favorites Christmas movies? Mine are: Elf A dog named Christmas Santa Claus the movie (this is an old one) Miracle on 34th Street The Santa Clause 1 and 2 On the 2nd day of Christmas (which I can't seem to find anymore) Updated... I forgot too many While You Were Sleeping Die Hard (1, 2, 3... might as well watch all 3 "originals") All I want for Christmas Christmas Vacation Home Alone Christmas with the Kranks The Family Man Toy Story (Favs are 1 and 3) Jingle All The Way. I love Arnold! Looks Who's Talking Now.
Good morning, dolls! Let's start the day off with a random quiz: 1. What plans do you have for the weekend? Going to go out to eat and hang out with my coworker/friend. 2. If you could wear one perfume for the rest of your life, what would it be? This is a tough one, but I think I am going to have to Say Gucci Envy Me. 3. Are you an only child? If not, how many siblings do you have? No, I have three siblings; two brothers and one sister. 4. Have you got all your holiday shopping done? Nope; I still need to order a couple of other stuff for the family. 5. What special holiday meal will you be enjoying this year? Glazed ham with honey, mashed potatoes and gravy.
Hi, I would like a restart on my beauty products - from skin care to make-up. I am almost 40 and need to start using some products to help hide/repair aging and wrinkles, etc... plus just also want/need new makeup. Can you give me an idea of how much it would cost to get this kind of set up?
Are NARS blushes overrated? Will the color 'Orgasm' show up on my skin tone which is medium/tan? Good for oily skin? Also someone told me that Elf's Candid Coral is a good alternative for NARS Orgasm because it cost less, anyone else agree or know anything about Elf's blushes? Sorry I'm just a little hesitant to buy NARS. But thank you to anyone that replies(:
hey there friends! today, I'd like to talk about how you can earn freebies and samples by just going to the mall, Ive recently noticed some huge deals going on (yesterday bath and body works was having a buy three get three free anything sale, for the first time!) and was wondering if y'all wanted to converse about some great sales and deals that you can get during your Christmas shopping right now you can get a free trial size Clinique chubby stick colour balm from your Macy's Clinique counter and also if you spent 10$ or more in the past few wekks at Victoria secret you get a free secret reward card which is now eligible for redeeming and may contain the value between 10$ to 500$ off your purchase (mine is ten) and im going to find something under ten dollars or close too it. Ive found a travel size mist and a cute tote bag from pink for 11.50 with the secret reward card it is only 1.50! double that with a pink nation coupon for a free panty with any pink purchase, and you have over 34$ worth of Victoria secret merchandise for less then two dollars! so tell me what deals you gal's find and what your hoping to score in your Christmas shopping! happy holidays and buckets of love, skye <3
Hi. I want to wear my hair more natural and its really thick and curly, what should I use to control it and make it look pretty? Because i want to do this during college so I won't have to spend all my money on keeping my hair neat. Is there any shampoo or conditioner I can put in it after it has dried or while its wet? FYI my ethnicity is African American and my hair is on a thickness level of 1-5 like a 4. Please help if you can thanks.
We swatched Urban Decay's new Naked3(!!) palette to see how the colors looked on different skintones. What do you think?
Do you have a swatch of this palette? Post a pic in the thread below!

Hey guys! I have hormonal (cystic) acne and about two months ago I revived a deluxe sample of the Ole Henriksen truth serum. I started using it nightly, hoping it might brighten some old acne scars and suddenly noticed that my breakouts were significantly reduced. I have been experimenting with it (not using it for a week, then using it again etc) and it seems like the serum is treating my acne, but reading the description it doesn't seem to be intended to treat acne and I don't see why it would work so well. Has anyone else tried it and experienced acne reduction?
I LOVE, LOVE the smell of Victoria's Secret Clean and Fresh. The problem is, it's a body mist not a perfume. Their "perfume" is not a perfume but more a toilette spray and does not last more then an hour. Is there any perfume that is similar in scent?
Did anyone else get sucked in to Ulta's cyber monday and still not even get a shipping notice? I never order from Ulta but they had some gifts I missed out on or didn't have at Sephora (the $10 Art of Shaving kit for my BIL, a $19 Bare Minerals kit for my SIL) and the free gift looked nice. I ordered just after midnight on sunday night/monday morning and it still says "order processing" and since it's been 5 days the pending charges aren't even on m CC anymore. I know other people are having the same issues because their Facebook page is blowing up and they sent an email out letting everyone know they are experiencing delays. They said it will still be here within 10 business days (which is really 2 weeks) but I am not confident my order will complete or have the free gift (if something is OOS it will mess up my christmas shopping because I thought I was done). I get it's shopping season, but in comparison, all my other holiday orders have been here for a few days. My Sephora CM order that I placed late on Monday got here Wednesday. My giftopia order was only 1 or 2 days behind, which wasn't bad at all. I'm on day 6 with Ulta. Anyone else having holiday shipping woes or get sucked into Ulta? I knew I was a Sephora girl before, but I can say with confidence now that Sephora > Ulta. Plus, Sephora's CS has always been good to me. Ulta doesn't seem to be handling this well.
Okay...here's the deal. It's time for me to make room for baby stuff for the new addition coming in April (Yippeee!!!!). I decided to take a look at everything I have but don't use anymore--and I have quite a few things. Most of the things I have and dont' use are because I love the products but my sensative skin won't allow me to use them. Here's my list: Bare Minerals eye shadows in: onyx (liner), mystery, denim, sugar plum and masquerade Buxom shimmer shadows in Beagle and Pug Make Up Forever Aqua Creme Shadows in Aqua Black and Shade 54 Sephora Shadows in midnight kiss, caroline's pride and armelle Bare Minerals Foundation in Fairly Medium, mineral veil and warmth make Up Forever HD Liquid Foundation in N130 (I think that's the sade number--it's a medium/light shade) VS Pro Bronzing Face Primer VS Tinted Moisturizer/Primer Delux Samples of: Sephora pin-up pink lip gloss (still in wrapper) Sephora Instant Moisturizer (never used) Kat Von D Powder Foundation in Medium 54 9Still in wrapper) Smashbox under eye primer (opened, but not used) Products that have been used: boscia clear complexion tonic Sephora Waterproof eye makeup remover Murad exfoliating acne treatment gel and spot treatment Boscia BB cream Fragrances--Full size bottle, most of them barely used: Georgio Armani Acqua di Dioia 1oz bottle and 3.4 oz bottle Ibiza Sol Urban Flowers Paris Urban Flowers London Pur Blanca- Blossom Just Play Philosophy You are Divine Philosophy Love Sweet Love U by Ungaro for her (Four 1.7 oz bottles, still in wrapper)--I love this stuff, but it doesn't love me back :-( Skin So soft Satin Glow Glow Gel (seven 6.7 oz bottle, still sealed) Full Size mark mascara in jet black Few misc eyeshadow colors and lotions Some of the products are used! I know that they are clean and all that...I never use my fingers for dipping into my make-up and I'm not including anything that is not hygenic...like used mascara! And...I'm giving all this away to whoever wants it. If you want it, PM me. but there are a few rules...I'm giving this away because I hope someone can use this stuff. I don't want any trouble and I won't be liable for anything--not that I'm not 100% confident that all these products are perfectly good and all that, but I don't want someone trying to sue me cause one of the lotions made them break out...ok. I'll ship to anywhere in the US, adn I'd like to get this to the post office on Thursday when I go mail out my Christmas presents. I will package everything very carefully and put anything liquid in ziploc bags. But I can't be responsible for any damage that might happen during shipping. I really, seriously just want to give this stuff to someone that can use it, without any trouble. And if there is anything about this post that is against the rules or guidelines, please let me know! I read through them and didn't see anything that would be, but I don't want to be banned from the most awesome forum ever!
I am 43. I have used MAC Studio Fix for years as I have oily skin and large pores. Now I have wrinkles as well and I feel the Studio Fix is getting cakey on my skin. Any other recommendations for a foundation that has light/moderate coverage (to cover redness and spots) but won't look thick and cakey on an oily, old face with large pores? Thanks!!
