Hey girlie girls, I have always loved being on Beauty Talk as we all have but lately it seems like it is better than it ever has been. I actually bring my laundry over by my computer or carry my computer around to different parts of the house while I'm doing things so I don't miss something I think we all have made this a positive, wonderful place and I hope so much we keep it going, I know I mentioned it not too long ago but I just don't want things to change.
So I going on vacation to Disney World in two weeks and wanted to know if anyone has suggestions on how to best pack my makeup (I've never done it)? Any tips on where to go to get empty containers? ETC ETC ETC
I have been using Jurlique Soothing Foaming Cleanser which I really like because 1. It is a very natural cleanser and 2. it has a soothing and not overpowering smell and 3. it doesn't make me break out like some other natural cleansers have (for example boscia botanical blast) . The one real issue that I have with my Jurlique Soothing Foaming Cleanser is that it does not have enough cleansing power to remove my make up/ the day completely. This time around I ordered the balancing cleanser but yikes! people were not exagggerating in reviews about the smell. I don't think that am going to be able to use it with how intense it smells. Does any one have any suggestions for another cleanser along the lines of the Jurlique Gentle Foaming Cleanser but with a little more oomph to it and or another product that I could use in conjunction with the cleanser in order to make it more effective? Thanks!!
I wear MUFE Mat Velvet + in # 25 . It matches seamlessly. What shade should I get for MUFE Duo Mat Powder Foundation? They do not carry it in the stores anymore. So I cannot get color matched. Thanks so much! Spoiler (Highlight to read)
I got my prom dress in the mail today and I was so excited to try it on. It came from China and we ordered it last Tuesday which was really fast. So I did and it didn't fit. Oh my god. I ordered it in a US size 6 which is what I normally wear in dresses due to my bust being a size 6 and my waist and hips a size 4. It had the measurements also on the websites. It probably is a Chinese size 6. On the order form and tag it says US size 6 and I had my mom measure my bust and it was a little bit less than the bust measurement for the size 6 that was on the website. When I tried the dress on I tried it with a bandeau top and a strapless bra and sucked my gut in. But it still did not fit.
What is the best organic , cruelty - free mascara that does NOT contain: aluminum, parabens, alcohol or other nasty chemicals? ( I am looking for something with good, dark pigment that actually shows up and won't flake off... Something that may help nourish / strengthen my lashes. )
Hi yall! I can't ever seem to find a good mask product for my skin problems. I have a lot of blackheads on my chin and nose that I can't ever get rid of. My skin is combo I guess, although the past few months it has been insanely oily and now it is very dry. I'm 23 years old. Not super concerned with anti-aging products. I don't have sensitive skin. I do have scars and blotchy skin color. Oh and lovely cystic pimples once a month.
I'm about a NC25/Second lightest shade in any foundation. So I'd deff put me on the pasty bar. I'm looking for a seriously gorgeous electric pink lipstick. A little like a Nikki Manaj or Rihanna looks, but I'm not tan.. Something not too drying and with kick butt lasting power. I've kind of looked into the Bite Beauty and NARS pencils, but I'm clueless.
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.
So I've been reading some articles about natural makeup products. Some people swear by using natural products and say its made their skin much better, others say that there were chemicals in natural makeup that they didn't realize and it actually harmed their skin. What do you think? Is using natural makeup better or worse than using just regular unnatural products?
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!
Hey everyone! After years of struggling with bad skin, I have finally decided to take on a healthier lifestyle - not just to improve my inner well being, but also my outer (skin, hair, etc.). With that being said, I'm hoping to hear some of your success stories: did drinking more water help improve your skin, did your foundation start working and applying better after making healthy changes, etc. Looking for a little inspiration! I hope to hear from you guys and get your input!
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.
I was using a half-size of the purifying cleanser for a while and liked it, and right now I'm using a sample of the black one and......aside from the temporary warming sensation, feels the same as the white one. Product description aside, has anyone used the cleanser from both lines and prefer one or the other? or feel/saw a difference on the skin? Along the same line, how does the black hydration gel compare to the oil-free hydration?
This is probably the weirdest question ever asked but whatever, here it goes! I normally have had pretty tame eyebrows, so they've never been waxed/plucked etc. before. But lately, hairs have popped in between them and on top and below! I don't know if they are noticeable to other people but they are bugging me! Plus, I think getting my eyebrows shaped would add some nice definition to my face. But what do you think? Does it hurt really bad? Am I going to get it done and have waxing phobia that's worse than my unibrow phobia?? Please help!
Hey all. I have been dealing with acne for a long time. I've seen a derm before but last time I saw one they wanted me to do a daily antibiotic and that's not really an option for me. I would go see one now but it takes about 5 months to get in to see one in our area. I have been struggling lately with my acne. It ranges from cystic acne (main problem) to white heads to black heads and usually occurs on my chin. I know some of it is probably stress because I recently started going back to school. Last summer I switched to Neutogena's Natural collection and was having no problems then all the sudden it was cyst city. The only change I can remember around this time was I tried a BB cream instead of my foundation. I switched back to my foundation and have been using Dermadoctor's Ain't Misbehavin' face wash and Origin's Active Charcoal Face Mask every few days. On my breakouts, I have been using Clinique's Acne Solutions Emergency Gel-Lotion Intensif Benzoyl Peroxide acne medication. It doesn't seem to be helping and may even be making things worse. I don't use a toner because I was told by my derm once that it can actually close pores and causes cysts. I also don't really use a moisturizer because I'm too worried something will break me out. I'm kind of on my last line. It is starting to spread to my forehead and even some small spots on my cheeks. I'm just so frustrated. What do you guys recommend? I'm considering trying a sulfur spot treatment instead but am still looking for a moisturizer that will help keep things calm.
I wasn't really sure what to call this thread, but for the summer, I was hoping to lighten up my face routine but in a different fashion than just switching to a tinted moisturizer, which is what I usually do. I was hoping for...a bronzing product, kind of in the "gel" family in terms of texture, that I could just use as a foundation for a light glow and call it a day. Problem is everything I find makes me a glitter bomb. I should also mention that I already have a deeper olive complexion so other things I've found just..don't even do anything. I'm not trying to BRONZE, just warm my face up so it's not flat because there is no foundation. I was thinking if I could find something along the lines of Stila On Step Bronze minus the shimmer I would be in business? Any suggestions??
I have long (few inches past shoulder length) brown oily FINE PIN STRAIGHT hair, but I have a ton of it. I bought a NUME curling wand that is supposed to do very well and it was very $$$. I don't know what hair products to use to keep a curl in my hair. Heat protectant, hair spray, I've no idea? Anyone else have this problem/hair type? I just want to curl my hair
I'm looking for a good dry shampoo for dark brown (practically black) hair. Most of them leave a white residue, that no amount of brushing would get out, and if I use less product there is no difference in my oily roots. Any suggestions?
I went to the pool and all the girls and women were wearing makeup. And I don't have perfect skin and I went without makeup and my friend was surprised I would so such a thing, but I was more shocked that she wearing concealer, foundation, and mascara. Any ladies out there who wear makeup to the pool/beach, what products do you use besides waterproof mascara and eyeliner? And am I crazy not to be wearing makeup there ahah
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 just got a beauty blender since some of you have recommended it. And I want to thank all of you that have because I am so loving it for foundation!!! Any who, I washed it for the first time today using baby shampoo (Thats what I normally use for my makeup tools) and i noticed pink dye started running out of the beauty blender.. Is this normal?
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!!!
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!!!
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.
Does anyone have any idea as to what color lipstick Kat Von D in this tutorial. Is it a new shade of her painted love lipsticks? http://www.youtube.com/watch?feature=player_detail page&v=ZaLzcvGQxjw&list=UU9YX5x_VU8gfe0Oui0TaLJg
