I need a good moisturiser for super dry skin!
I'm 25 and I use clarins early wrinkle correction cream and was really happy with it until i found out my face has started to flake especially around the nose. Please suggest a good moisturiser that isn't very exorbitant.

Is anyone else loving the Givenchy Fall 2014 Collection?
Saw Temptalia's post a couple of days ago on the Givenchy Fall collection for this year, and it's all so beautiful -- from the packaging to the colors. I mean, look at the burgundy leather encasement for the Le Rouge lipsticks! However, the only one I will probably get is the Blush Memoire De Forme Pop Up Jelly Blush in Rose Extravagant -- am I crazy to want to drop $37 on a blush?! :-\ Yikes... However, I feel that between the color and the packaging, it's something that I can admire for a while...as long as it doesn't dry up at some point.   From Make Up 4 All blog   From Fashion Trend Seeker

Makeup for the office?
I have a basic 9-5 office job, and lately, I've been over-doing it with the makeup! 1) because I have a lot of new goodies and 2) because it's fun! I was wondering what a good neutral/natural would look like. Show me some looks or what you guys wear during the week! Thanks :-)

New to you shadow colors?
Have you ever tried a shadow (or other color product) color that you thought would be awful and turns out that you love it?  I recently got the Too Faced Bonjour Summer palette for the nice compact size and the Mermaid shadow color (I love anything mermaid!). I tried the color Firefly today, it looks orange in the pan, and it turns out I'm in love! How 'bout you all? Have you accidently found something fabulous?

Rouge Louboutin
Eff! I have a feeling the $50 Louboutin red nail polish will end up at my house. I don't hoard cheapie polishes so it's okay to splurge on a luxury beauty product, right?     Sephora will be getting it around August 6th if I remember correctly. http://www.sephora.com/product/productDetail.jsp?p roductId=P388556&om_mmc=oth-tum-20140723-Louboutin

Deluxe and Foil Samples Traveling Box!
I posted a previous post about starting a traveling box with samples and deluxe samples and a few ladies were interested in doing one!  This is the 1st traveling box I am apart of and of course the 1st that I am starting.   So, we need to decide if we are going to do a medium or small flat rate box.     RULES  No used items.  No open items  DO NOT take more than you put in.  Let's keep this fun and fair  DO NOT take multiples of the same sample  PLEASE try not to keep the box more than 3 days  Make sure to send your address to the person listed above you  Once you send the box off, post the tracking number in this thread  ALL unused items allowed (well maybe not nail polishes if it will make the shipping costs go up)  Post a pic of what you take out, what you put in and what is left in the box before you send it off     THIS IS A DRAMA FREE BOX! We are going to have fun and try to keep this going as long as we can!   If you are interested in being in the box, I have a few spots left so post a pic of what samples you have in this thread to be added.   To start off, we are only going to have 10 people! 1. hollygohardly 2. MegEm 3.MLLECC 4. tessie84 5. Kittichick 6. NicoleFrat 7. NightKnight 8. Sweetxteeth 9. Nishcakes  10. BuxomBabe80

REGRETTABLE TRENDS AND BEAUTY HABITS -- OH NO !
ok, story time.   are there any specific trends you took part in--or habits you too part of--only to look back and think 'WHAT WAS I THINKING?!'.  it may be embarrassing, it may be humorous, either way--it's one of the more entertaining elements of beauty/makeup that we can only learn to fully understand (and appreciate !) with hindsight.    in the early 2000s i hated the fact i was pale, so i was often a victim of the earlish days of the self tanner craze. i remember thinking it was MAGIC, only to to notice the next day in fresh daylight that i had bright orange streaks running down my calf. and you'd think that would've taught me my lesson but i'd just pretend like it wasn't there and continued on with it for months. another was the disaster at my attempt at a glossy eyelids (posted about more thoroughly in the 'what was your first sephora purchase' thread). and i'll add more to these 'confessions' as i remember more !   just to note: this is all in good-spirited nostalgic fun, and NOT to demean anyone's tastes or experiences.

Master Class III Palette from Smashbox
Has anyone gotten the Smashbox Master Class III Palette? I've been eyeing this one up, but I have to wait a few months to get it since I've already spent over my budget for the time-being! ;-)   I found some closeup photos of it and swatches of it online via cosmeticblur blog, and all the colors look so absolutely amazing!    Does anyone know if this is in the permanent line or is it limited edition? If it's limited edition will it still be here in a few months? I just can't stop looking at all the colors and really don't want to miss out on this one! *drool*

Subscription box photo sharing
I've been on the Ipsy waiting list, but still look at the thread. I thought we could have a shared thread from all the subscription boxes (including non-beauty ones likes underpants and lifestyle such as Wantable and POPSugar). That way we can live vicariously through each others goodies!   (I know there are unboxing videos on YouTube, but I do not have the patience to sit through a five minute video about someone apologizing for the state of their hair. And I know there are blogs where I can see photos, but everyone usually gets different items in their boxes)

Hydrating eyecream suggestions
I've finished my jar of the Kiehls Creamy Avocado Eye Treatment a few weeks ago and am still hesitating whether to rebuy it or not. I really like the Kiehls one to use under makeup as it hydrates my eye area and makes the fine lines under my eyes less noticeable and the fact that it doesn't irritate my eyes if I put it too close. I've been using the Algenist Eye Renewal Balm and have noticed that my eye area looks dry when makeup is applied over top. Should I just go back to Kiehls or maybe try another eye cream? Another one I am considering of getting is the Bobbi Brown Hydrating eye cream since it does have the word "hydrating" in its name.

Contouring for Light Skin?
I want to get into contouring and I have light skin with pink undertones. I've heard good things about Anastasia's Contour Kit and Smashbox's as well but I'm at a loss here.   What are your recommendations? Am I better off buying a highlighter and bronzer (I don't want orange!) or going for a kit. Do the kits work well for light skin? From reviews I've read I think kits tend to lean more towards medium complexions?   Let me know what you recommend as far as products go. I prefer matte powders.Thanks!

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.

Never ever any foundation suited me, suggest me some good one
I tried many foundations (acc to me) from drugstore to high end, but any foundation didn't match me i tried sephora color IQ test thrice, it suggested me stilla foundation, i bought it hoping it would suit, but it made me look dark at least one to two shades dark being asian, never want to look dark, when i remove foundation half side, i can clearly see dark and light shades of my face recently tried Dior foundation also, same problem. I have combi- dry skin, with very oily t-zone and very dry cheeks, i am 26. Please suggest me good foundation which has many shades, that i can find one which suits my color perfectly, like second skin.

Does your makeup/hair ever look so good...
that you can't stop staring at yourself in the mirror? that you want to take a bunch of selfies? that you don't want you work out/shower because you look too good? As makeup addicts, I think it's ok to be little conceited from time to time. That was me today. I haven't been wearing a lot of makeup in the past few days and today I was so bored that I decided to do my full face. I cannot tell you how many times I stared at my contour. It just looked so good!

Use 030 in the Dior Forever Compact Foundation
I love the Dior Forever Powder however when the product is nearing the end it crumbles and the compact itself breaks on the hinge.  This is the 3rd time I've purchased it, it has happened every time. Although I love the powder the packaging has left me frustrated.  If I wear the 030, what would I wear in the Dolce and Gabbana Foundation Powder Compact, am thinking of giving it a try.

any love for Elizabeth Arden?
So, I've been around these boards for a while but I hardly ever see anyone mention Elizabeth Arden. I was never crazy about any of the perfumes, but has anybody been to a Liz Arden counter lately or looked at the site? There are some really beautiful lipsticks and eyeshadows. My friend just purchased the bronzer and it is gorgeous. Also, the Ceramide line of skincare has been a favorite for a long time. I know many people think of the line as for "older" women, but I was just wondering people's thoughts?
