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 am so pleased I had to share! I use drug store moisturizers with spf daily, and I have tried many including neutrogena, olay and aveeno. I hav oily/normal combination skin and up to today I though a little bit greasiness due to my lotion/sunscreen was unavoidabke unless I want to switch to higher end products. A couple of weeks ago I realized I was running low on my Neutrogena oil free face lotion and while I was in target I picked Eucerin lotion because it was only 6.99 and I was not super happy with my current lotion. Today I just tried Eucerin and I can't believe I was wasting my money on all those mousturizers that claim to be non greasy! This is by far the best thing I tried so far, it has spf 30 instead of the common spf 15 in oil free lotions. I had no white cast to my face either. I hope I can always find Eucerin at my local target! Have you guys tried this lotion before? What do you think?
So I was watching a youtube video of Vintageortacky and when I saw her Charlotte Tilbury blush, my jaw dropped. I had my eye on the YSL peachy one but .. this... just beats it, and can I say cute packaging? I wasn't going to jump on the CT bandwagon, but according to Cora this gives a nice natural peachy touch.. yep. This blush is called Ecstacy. And this one is the one Cora used called First Love.
I was tossing a few samples into my sample stash bag, and realized a) I have a sample hoarding problem and b) I have no clue what I've got in there. So Going along with blackwhiskey's makeup challenge, I'm proposing the September Sample Challenge. For the last 10 days of September, use at least 5 samples from your stash, then give us your mini review. Did you like it? Would you purchase it? Etc. so.....who's up for another challenge?
The Armani Eye & Brow Maestro Creams are supposed to be total game changers, which can be used as eyeshadows, brow color, and even hair color (hair color - seriously?). There are 9 shades (described as iridescent), they are (apparently) waterproof and they (apparently) last 20 hours. I have to say I'm intrigued. What do you all think?
Whenever I watch fashion shows, I would watch them for the makeup more so than the clothes (which are fantastic in any case!). I thought it'd be fun to start a thread of favourite inspirational makeup photos Here are a few of mine from the latest NYFW SS15.
I don't know if these are new for all of you but this is the first day I see these up. Just a heads up http://www.sephora.com/melted-kisses-P390806?skuId =1640424 http://www.sephora.com/under-mistletoe-P390802?sku Id=1640440 http://www.sephora.com/beauty-wishes-sweet-kissees -P390807?skuId=1640416 http://www.sephora.com/la-belle-carousel-P390808?s kuId=1640408
I match perfectly with BareMineral Bareskin #3 Linen and Cover FX 30 but when i looked for a pick for baremineral original foundation powder it was Medium Beige here. When I went to the bare mineral site it was Fairly Light. I know my skin is neutral more then yellow from all the past foundations I've tried. I was just wondering if I should purchase the Medium Beige this site picked for me or the Fairly Light picked by BareMinerals site?
Hi girls! I was looking for the best foundation ever at Sephora and the girl who helped me out recommended the Armani Maestro Foundation in 5.25. I guess I have a light to medium skin with yellow undertones, but still haven't figured out how this really works I usually wear during winter MUFE in 127/140 and 160 during summer (also Teint Jolie by YSL in Foncè). I'm afraid the 5.25 shade would be too dark for me during winter and, being its price quite expensive I wanted to be completely sure about it. I totally trust you experts, can't wait to have your suggestions about the perfect foundation for me!
i just bought the too faced mascara today when i came home and opened it, it was really light. i dont know if it's supposed to be like that, though. i was at the register and i asked the lady if they had any more of the mascara in stock because there were no more on the shelves. she left the register to go and look, and im assuming that she got it out of the storage that they keep underneath the display. i didn't go with her, so i didn't see. but she came back and i bought it. the packaging seemed really intact. actually, i had to rip the upper tab a little bit because it was hard to open. anyway, when i opened it, it seemed really light. and i can't tell if it's because it was used or if its just light. can anyone help me? the last mascara i used was the maybelline great lash, and i know that has about one and a half times more than what comes in the better than sex mascara. so maybe i'm just not used to it. help please?
I am 54 years old, have combination skin and use fragrance free products. I've just bought the Ole Henrikson 3 Little Wonders as I wanted to try this line. I'm looking for anit-aging products and to combat fine lines/wrinkles. What would you suggest my next purcnases should be? I need something for eyes, etc.
Is anyone else in love with this new collection? While I think both the mirrors are crazy over priced, everything else is AMAZING. I have only gotten the eyeshadow palette so far but oh my god its perfect. Has anyone gotten anything from it? Is it worth getting any of the other sets??
I received Vice 3 and got to wear it yesterday. I found the shadows super soft and buttery. I have a lot of UD palettes and singles, but Vice 3 kind of reminds me of the shadow formula in their Pulp Fiction palette. Anyone else? i was particularly interested in the reds. I used Sonic yesterday and it did not look like the color I thought it would when it went on my lid. I didn't dislike it but was just surprised - I was expecting kind of a ruby color. But I loved the base shade I picked and my crease color. It is a palette with lots of options and possibilities! i have that and Ten. I will try to swatch them, especially the liners since I have so many other UD liners already, I can see if there are any that exist that are close. just wondering if anyone else had thoughts on the shadow formulas in Vice 3 or LTD, or on the colors in Ten.
I thought this would be an interesting challenge as well as difficult, but also help you discover creative ways and/or using up something you feel guilty of buying but never using. I'm a bit of an impulse buyer when it comes to eyeshadows. I have several palettes but I usuall end up just using the same one or switch it up with another commonly used in my collection and I thought that should stop. Recently I've been good about rotating palettes but it still doesn't get much use that makes me happy I bought it. At first I thought "a month should do it" but I know not even I would be able to keep that promise. The challenge is this. To pick a product that you haven't really got much use out of, and use it for an entire week. So an example would be "I haven't used much of the Kat von D sinner palette so I'll use it for a week now." Here's a loophole to this. You pick your item but you can still use other shadows from other things, the point is that the item you've picked has to be in your daily look. It doesn't have to be palettes or singles only as long as you pick the item and stick to it for a whole week. That way we won't feel so guilty about not using it so much. The item that I will be picking will be the Kat von D Monarch palette. I use it every once in a while but I haven't for 7 consecutive days. So starting this Sunday, that palette will be part of my every day routine until Saturday. Summary: It doesn't have to be a palette, it can be a single eyeshadow. It doesn't have to be eye shadow, it can be a lippie, blush, or mascara. *edited to add foundation to the list* Yes, you can mix it with other products but this will be the item you won't leave behind in your daily routine for the 7 consecutive days. You don't have to post a picture of yourself if you don't want to, but if you want to take a picture of your item of choice, you can, and if you want. All you have to say to yourself is I can commit, I can accept, and I succeeded!
This hasn't been started yet so I'll give it a go. Today is the last day that SiJCP has an extra 25% off clearance so I stopped in to poke around before I start up the smoker for tonight. I grabbed all these goodies for $30.
Is it possible for Sephora get a "Save for Later" option like Amazon? I know this tool would help a lot of people out significantly due to the fact that people put items in their carts just to see when the prices of their item go on sale, or who plan to buy it in the future and put it in their carts as references. The tool would help a lot because the buyer wouldn't need to empty their whole cart in order to buy specific items they need only during that time... This option would be similar to the LOVE tab, but you don't LOVE the item, you are just putting it there for future reference.
Can we somehow change a review? We used to be able to write more than one but now that doesn't seem to work anymore (so we could average them). 4 is too low…but I just decided at the last moment that 5 was too high and went with 4.
I have sensitive skin in general. If I put on any kind of eye makeup, I am fine for 8-12 hours. But when I remove the makeup (does not matter how I do it: using a wash, wipes, makeup remover), my upper lid swells up for a day or so. I have to skip a day of eye makeup to go back to normal. I have thrown mascaras away thinking the tube is too old, no difference. I truly think if I sleep in my makeup, I will be fine (not that I want to do that). I have noticed the more tugging I do on the lid, the more the swelling. I use UD primer on lids, I also tried too face primer with no difference. I use origins eye cream on lower lid but nothing for upper lid.I use dior mascara, UD shadows, smashbox concealer for lower lid( which is starting to cake for no good reason). Any suggestions? thanks in advance. I would go to a sephora store for advice but the closest one to me is an hour away!
Hi! I normally use benefits "Erase Paste" in the shade fair, but I want to order NARS radiant creamy concealer, I don't really wear makeup so I don't know but would the first shade of the NARS "Chantilly" or the second shade "Vanilla" work better with me and be the one to most likely match my fair erase paste? Thanks in advance!
I love seeing other peoples empties! So I decided to make a board where people could post pictures of their empties, or just tell us about them! I'd also be interested in knowing whether you're repurchasing anything or not.
My skin is my biggest concern for a while now, but after trying a lot of different products by myself I've decided to seek help from an expert. I live in a small middle of nowhere town so I'm not close to any dermatologist. I hope to get help online though. I'm 15 years old, but I already have wrinkles on my forehead and slightly visible lines around my eyes. Any anti wrinkle product that's effective? If the ones I have won't disappear I would just like to know if there are any products that would prevent new wrinkles. Next concern is that I have dark circles under my eyes, concealing is not helping just making it worse, is there any product/ I've heard that oils help/ that would make them a bit less dark? Then, I'm oily in the T zone and I always have at least one pimple on my face in that area and blackheads. The rest of my face is normal, not dry but not oily. Should I care differently for one area than the other? I have no idea how to choose a proper skin care. Discoloration is another thing. I no longer pick my pimples, but I did and they left marks, discoloration or scars that are like these little holes. Is there any way I could deal with that? I've thought about getting laser treatment for it after I'm no longer a teenager, but is there any product? I also have marks on my back from acne on my back, so it would be great if I could use it for that too. Then I have broken vessels or what to call it around my mouth and the lower part of my cheeks. I noticed them a few years back but it's possible I had them before that, I don't know what caused them and when they appeared. Again, will only laser help or is there anything else? I haven't been using anything on my face, washing it with water sometimes and putting olive oil on it which left the normal part of my face nicely moisturized and healthy, but didn't help the rest. Is it normal to have so many things wrong with my skin? Is there any hope for me? What should I use/ do? Thank you!!
For nearly a year now, my skin has transformed into what I call an awful mask. I have red bumps (not pimples) throughout my face, dry patches that even pure coconut oil won't help. My fine lines have definitely gotten a bit worse and I just have a rough, uneven texture with enlarged pored and a loss of elasticity. My chin is often oily though and I get breakouts a lot in that area. I feel like I don't even know which problems to start with and products i used in the past that are no longer working. My skin is also very fair and sensitive. I'm getting anxiety due to how bad my skin is and I really just need advice on what products will help. I'm also on a bit of a budget. Thanks for reading, I hope to hear back soon. (SN: I'm 26 years old).
Hi everyone! So I'm basically looking for the whole nine yards at this point. I've been content with my current and past cleansers and moisturizers but lately I've been feeling like my skin has almost started regressing? It looks like it could use some change so I'm open to all suggestions! Here's a few concerns I'd like to address for sure. but like i said WHOLE NINE YARDS Trouble Areas: -OILY TO COMBO SKIN-for the most part my skin is more on the oily side, however i noticed my skin tends to dry up around my eyebrows and mouth (don't know why those areas but that's it) -BLACKHEADS-hate them, have them. I feel like sometimes they are just so huge that its taking over my face & honestly makes me feel self conscious (which no one wants to feel) Currently using Biore black head strips & they work well for the most part, but I feel like there is more i can do to make them go away or at least be less noticeable -BRIGHTEN/EVEN SKIN TONE-I think i have pretty even skin tone, however sometimes i do get blemishes or redness on my face, also I feel like my skin is looking dull, so I'm looking for something to brighten it. Thanks i advance ! & remember the WHOLE NINE YARDS!(:
