I love love watching/hearing about hauls. I'm interested in what people got and what they recommend. I went to Sephora today, and went out with an empty wallet. lol. I manly went to get skincare products: Korres Milk Protein Cleanser Korres Wild Rose Daily Brightening Refining Buff Cleanser Boscia Bright White Mask Clinique Moisture Surge Extended Thirst Reflief Givenchy Mister Mat Samples: Korres Pomegranate Mattifying Treatment Fresh Face Polish What did you all get recently?
hey everybody, lately I've been hearing a lot of people talking about how great this mask is. I've been thinking about buying it but it's a little expensive. the main reason i want to buy this is because i have an uneven skin tone and acne scars. Right now i' m looking for a new face mask and moisturizer for my oily and acne prone skin and i thought this would be great. Is this ok to use on oily and acne prone skin? How fast will you see results? please help.
Hello! I am looking for either a foundation/ tinted moisturizer/ etc to wear on my face during the summer for an easy makeup application. I would like it to have SPF as I will be out in the sun, as well as sweatproof, so it is not dripping down my face in the middle of the day. Let me know what my best options are! I just bought the Dior BB cream which has spf 30, however I am seeing it wipe off a little here and there, so I am not sure it would be able to outlast sweat and water. Thanks!
Know importance of sunscreen esp. for face/neck, but most sunscreens alone or w/ color foundations are shiny. I try to powder, but oil absorbs it. Reluctant to use sunscreen, but usually opt for moisturizing sunscreen, shiny face w/ no color foundation. Better than no sunscreen @ my high altitude, but not a great look. Can't afford high end products, but will pay for a high end product that will last & can be used for face & eye area Thank You!
I have medium brown hair similiar to the picture below I really want to go blonde like this: How can I do that without completely destroying my hair or having it come out orange? I take fairly good care of my hair, I deep condition it once a week and use a repairing conditioner on other days and I use a clarifying shampoo once a week. My hair is quite soft and healthy looking now, I don't want to dye it and have it be brittle and dead looking. Also, what is the best way to dye my hair blonde and have it look natural?
What beauty moment are you having right now? Are you currently into the bright lipstick look? All neutrals? The bronzed look? Trying a different hairstyle everyday? My current beauty moment is mixing blushes. I'm usually a one and done type of girl, but since I've purchased the LORAC blushes (um, all of them!) that were on sale a while back I've started to mix blush colors- a cream blush layered with a complimenting powder blush; a bright blush muted with a skin colored blush; blush bronzer mix. Next, I'm gravitating towards lightening up my eye looks. As it's getting warmer (and stickier in DC) I'm softening my eye looks and layers of colors to one soft color and a bright eyeliner (or just brown or black). What beauty moment are you having?
i've already purchased this and i'm waiting on it to come in the mail, but the more i look at the ivory i keep feeling like its too dark for me, i wear about 117 in the makeup forever HD foundation but i like my foundation very pale with almost no orange tone, do you think the ivory foundation would be a good fit for me? or will it be too orange? i also use the Green makeup forever primer to make my skin less red if that matters. Thank you guys
My older brother is getting married next month to his girlfriend of five years and I would like to get them something different, so I thought what better than matching perfumes? I am thinking D&G Light Blue for Femme and for Homme since they are fresh scents that appeal to most everyone. Is this okay? My other sibling pointed out that they may not like it and thus never use them, but I argued that they are good quality expensive perfumes that neither would ever think of purchasing for themselves. What do you think? Is this a good gift that they will enjoy, or am I way off the charts?
Last Christmas I used a drugstore red lipstick, and by the end of the day I was covered in hives. The next day I had to take myself to a care now, get two epi en shots and a steroid injection, then stay doped up on benadryl the next two days! Weirdly enough though, I use red hair dye like every week, and I can use red lip liner to color my brows, but as soon as it touches my lips I get at lease one hive. The drug store brand doesn't list ingredients so I can't figure it out that way, is the only way for me to figure out which red dye I'm allergic to by picking and choosing different products with different dyes until I'm not allergic to one? Or should I just give up on my red lipped quest?
We have the highly addictive "What are you wearing today?" thread- and it got me thinking about how our nails are a sidebar in that conversation. So, what's on your nails today? I just swapped Chanel Rose Insolent for Butter London Come to Bed Red. Nothing on my toes!
So I have been using the truth serum for about a month now, but I just haven't noticed any difference in my skin. I'm 24, so maybe i shouldn't expect to, and it should be more of a preventative thing for me. I'm new to serums in general so i'm just not sure what i should be expecting. Anyone have any thoughts to share on this? Any tips on how to get the most out of this product?
I just started doing at-home steaming after I heard a lot of great things about it-- put my face over a hot pot of water with a towel over my head. That is as far as I know. SO, how long do I have to do this for to have an effect? At least 5 mins? 10 mins? No more than 15? No less than 5? Are there also any specific things I should/must do so that I actually get a result? My skin is acne prone and I am south asian with fair skin tone.
Hi ladies! I am 21 years old and i want to start using serums. The main factor that I am considering is if the serum will lighten up my blemishes. I have a few on my cheeks and i hate them! >:X Also, it would also be a plus if the serum will have anti aging effect so I can use it as a prevention against wrinkles. And lastly, I have oily skin that gets breakouts during those times of the month. Can you recommend me a good serum that delivers those abovementioned results? Thanks in advance, ladies!
So a while back in Jan and even recently i asked the MUFE location near me if the duo mat was still being discontinued and they said yes. Then 2.5 mons ago i wrote to MUFE to ask them and they just NOW responded with this: "Thank you for your interest in MAKE UP FOR EVER. We have heard our consumers loud and clear, we will not be making any changes to the current distribution of duo mat. The quantities and shades available will remain the same. Please know that your customer satisfaction is greatly valued and we appreciate your feedback." UPDATE: response email to clarify "Due to overwhelming customer response and love for the product, Duo Mat is no longer be discontinued. It is our priority to service you and meet your needs. However, if your local Sephora is out of stock on your favorite shade, you may always place a phone order through our NYC Studio." I hope this is the case as the duo mat does keep me mat longer.
Hi all, I have a moderate tremor in both hands and it makes the more precise aspects of makeup application difficult. Specifically I have trouble with eyeliner and mascara. I can't get a straight line with the eyeliner and I keep stabbing myself in the eye or getting wicked smudges with the mascara. Does anyone have any suggestions for how to apply eye makeup with shaky hands? Thanks to anyone who has thoughts!
I just want to plump up the fine lines and delicate skin Under my eyes. Have been trying thicker creams but they don't actually seem to absorb. Maybe lighter ones are better? I hope to wake up with under eye area looking moist, not like cracked rice paper. Thanks!
I have to fill in some sparse areas in my brows and am looking for something that looks the most natural. I often find that if I get anything but the lightest color it is too dark and harsh for me. I have light brown hair.
Hey guys, So last year i bought my mom a back up of her laura mercier foundation and a invisible setting powder and soon after that got her the dior nude skin-glowing foundation. And she ended up loving the dior one way more then the laura mercier one. Anyways so my question would be can i still return the unopened laura mercier foundation even though its been half a year and do not have the receipt anymore?
I'm looking for a moisturizer that won't break me out - I have extremely, extremely dry skin.It's summer and my skin is still so dry it is flaking off in little pieces and is tight and itchy. I really would like something that doesn't include these ingredients: Isopropyl isostearate Isopropyl myristate Myristyl myristate Laureth-4 Oleth-3
I love makeup so much and I was wondering what I need to do about this obsession and if I can wear make up in public. I have wanted to play with makeup for about a year now and i have loved when girls put makeup on me or i use some of my moms. I would love to take this to a new level and start wearing makeup in public or just buying makeup and trying it on at home and practicing. Some day i would love to be a makeup artist. I would also need a way to do this without my parents knowing and how would i buy the makeup i want.
So we're always posting on hauls and stuff, and I thought this would be an interesting twist. Lots of us have that one (or more) thing that we eye every time we go into sephora/ sephora website, and we want to get it but we don't. What is yours? What about it tempts you? and Why don't you get it? I''ll start. For sephora.com, I would definitely say the urban decay eyeliner vault. All those shades are so tempting, and I am such a junkie for pretty colors. But it is too expensive too buy all of them, especially that I already have too many eyeliners, so I always tell myself that I wouldn't use all those colors anyways.
Alright, this is a thread that I've thought about starting for a long time but have been trying to consider how best to approach it without starting a flame war or offending anyone. Disclaimer: this thread is not for people who love these products to try to convince those who don't love their favorites that they're wrong, to try again, etc. Trying to make anyone feel bad for their opinion will not be tolerated. Nor will "beauty evangelizing." Likewise, please remain polite when you talk about the products you just don't like. So, what products do you go against the beauty grain? What are those consensus favorites that you just don't like? I'll start. I'm just not a fan of the Urban Decay Naked palettes. I know they're widely considered a HG product and everyone " has to have them! ". I understand why they're considered a value from an intellectual perspective. But I don't own any of them, and won't. I often bite my tongue because they seem to be the only answer repeated thread and after thread.

This is off topic but i noticed a ShopKick post awhile back and i do use it! But i am loving Viggle. It the same concept as shopkick where you check in and get points to redeem things. But you do it with Tv shows! I don't know about you ladies but i watch plenty of TV! You just sync it to your tv, it catches what your watching and you get a point for every minute you watch it! They have featured shows where you get more point as well! I think it is great! I've had this already for a few days and have 1,500 + points! You get gift cards you can redeem for a certain amount of points. For instance Starbucks gift cards are 12,500 points, and i assume it would be a $10 gift card. And they have a Sephora Gift Card for 20,000 points! I think i will be there in no time! Anyone else use this or think they will now??!!!
