Hi. my face has been giving me major problems lately with excessive oil and zips. I have just started shopping at Sephora so I need some advice. I am also a college student so Im on a budget. I am looking for a face wash that works. any suggestions?
I know we still have a few more hours until the 1st, but I thought I'd start us off, anyway! I got the email that the Shiseido Veiled Rouge lipstick I tried to buy earlier this week (but got a shadow shipped to me instead, lol) was back in stock, so I decided to try buying it again. Come on guys! Let's hope the second time for Skyglow is the charm What've you hauled or will be hauling this month?
After a thread on here today, I got to thinking. Where and how do you store your makeup? I keep my every day makeup in a bag in my purse. All day, all night, all the time. That keeps just what I wear every day. BB cream, primer, powder, naked basics, mascara, eye liner ( liquid and pencil ) mascara, a couple of lip liners, 4 lippies, blush and a few assorted blushes. These go with me EVERYWHERE. At home i have a 3 drawer organizer in my bathroom, with each drawer full and dedicated to different things. One is full of nothing but just face makeup. powder, foundation, blush, things like that. One for eyes, and one for lippies. I also have 2 storage cabinets in my bathroom where i keep my skin care in one and then another full of my hair products. I also have another organizer full of nail polish and then one more for samples. It is a cute little cloth box, and i want to say i got the idea off of here! Anyways! Tell me where you store ladies!!
Hi everyone, Since there are many LE items or discontinued items that we search for, I wanted to know if there is any interest in maintaining a thread to post any unicorns we stumble upon and list where it can be found so others can try to find these items that they are looking for. I thought this might be useful as I found a few items on my trip and also found it extremely helpful when a fellow BT member posted about the availability of Tom Ford's Nude Dip on Selfridges a couple of months ago so that a few of us could finally order this LE item. I also thought that if there are LE items that people are looking for, they could PM me and I could add it to the main thread so that others would know what others may be looking for. I could update the Found Unicorns on the main post weekly. Looking for your thoughts, suggestions? This would be strictly for limited edition items and discontinued items. Please include location, date found, and price if it is selling for less or more than regular retail price. Thanks in advance! Wanted Unicorns: ABH amrezy palette ( minibux, BeautyIsPassion) Chanel Ombre Contraste Sculpting Veil in Notorious (minibux,KateLovesYSL) COTY Sephora Marsala eye palette (jcmb) COTY marsala blush palette (MK89) Dior My Lady Blush in 001 and 006 (jellybean917) Divergent set (ImHisAngel) Guerlain Cruel Gardenia (Rhiannon1419) Laura Mercier Rose Rendezvous (Rhiannon1419) Lorac mega pro (sdbeautyjunkie) MAC pressed pigment in Summer Honey (StephaniLynn) MAC True Romantic Blush and MAC Petal Point blush (Javadoo) MAC Proenza Schouler Ocean City Coral blush ( notcreative) Nars Douceur blush: (bea0t, Ivyxox) Tom Ford Guilt cream shadow (killahbabe) Tom Ford Emerald Lust (Poisonivy9) Tom Ford Burnished Amber, Violet Dusk Eyeshadow Quads (KateLovesYSL) Tom Ford Lips & Boys in Stavros (minibux) Tom Ford She Wolf (lipstick4soul) Tom Ford Blush in Narcissist (KateLovesYSL)
The only thing I love more than shopping is getting a great deal. I've created a website, with the same name as this thread (minus spaces and the exclamation point), to share my passion with more people. If you share here and want to keep the deal exclusive to BT viewers, just write for BT only in the post. I will heart every deal I see . If your deal does not have a heart from me, I have not seen it yet. A heart with no comment means I already had your deal on my site or am not planning on listing it (I may already have a better offer or another possible reason). Should I use your deal, I will thank you here and mention that it was "shared on BT" on my site. Thanks again to everyone who shares! If you find something full priced that is new and awesome, share it here. http://community.sephora.com/t5/Sephora-com/Spring -Summer-2015-Found-in-the-Wild-quot-New-quot/m-p/1 ...
OK, I've seriously tried EVERYTHING to make these liners work. I've tried pulling while twisting, pushing while twisting, jiggling it a little, plain ol' twisting, etc. to get more of the liner to swirl out from the stick. BUT IT JUST WON'T DO IT. I've taken it into the store, and when the nice Sephora lady couldn't get it to work, she gave me a new one. Well, that one wouldn't work either. So I took that one back. It didn't work either. In total, I have exchanged this thing 4 times. None of them have worked. It's really disappointing because I love the liner--great texture, awesome smudge-y-ness--but it WON'T WORK. I've kinda given up, so now it's just sitting somewhere in my blackhole of a make-up box. Has anyone else had this problem, or am I just extremely unlucky? Could this please be fixed??
So I've seen a couple of threads for specific Spring 2015 launches (MUFE 50 Shades, Nars, etc). I thought it would be cool to post any and all new collection releases/launches in the same thread. I was searching around trying to find the newest stuff and scout out my next purchases. Here's what I've found so far: Dior Spring 2015 - Kingdom of Colors (Images from A Bit Of Blusher) Guerlain Spring 2015 (Images from Rouge Deluxe) Isn't this collection so cute?!?!
Alright, wise people of Beauty Talk. I have a lipstick holder and keep all my MAC lipsticks in it. I spend so much time on the morning pulling them out and turning them to read the label and find the one I want. I was complaining to my sister about this morning ritual and I said I was probably just going to store them upside down so the labels are easy to read. She gasped as though I had suggested that I give them all to my daughter to use as crayons and just buy a tube of Chapstick as replacement. She said all of the bullets would break off due to gravity and they'd be ruined! Is she right? Do you store your precious tubes of coloured happiness upside down or right side up?
I'm having a lot of trouble finding a foundation that doesn't have a dark or orange-pink cast on my skin. For reference, I was recently "matched" at MAC to NC15 in Studio Sculpt though it seems darker and more orange than my natural skin tone. Blended out and covered with translucent powder, it is acceptable, but far from a seamless match. I went to Sephora and sampled several foundations recommended by a cast member. She suggested Nars Sheer Glow in Mont Blanc which looks a bit tan relative to my skin, even blended out. I do own Nars Chantilly concealer and when I arrayed all my concealers and foundations along my arm for swatching, it was the only one that almost blended. (It was faintly darker and pinker than my skin.) I also sampled Urban Decay Naked Skin in 1, which was sheer on me but too dark, almost like a dark orange stain in contrast. I tried two shades of Girgio Armani Luminous Silk. The 4.5 was several shades too dark and very pink-orange looking and the 3.0 was slightly darker and more orange than my skin. I found the 3.0 was very similar in color and value to L'Oreal's True Match W1, which is a color I have worn before (slightly dark on me) but a formula I don't really like for my dry skin. In general I find foundations/concealers tend to oxidize a bit on me, and I am a little frustrated that sales associates keep recommending shades that are darker than my neck. Is there a reason for this? How much of a shade difference is acceptable? As for undertones, my hair is naturally very dark, my eyes are blue, and I look best in vivid, cool-toned colors. I have blue veins and my skin takes on a slightly gray cast in comparison to the foundations sampled above. But though I am cool-toned in general, my skin has an obvious yellow tint and very little pink or red. What color range and undertones would you suggest for foundation? Can a foundation really "match" if it has that orange-pink cast I mentioned?
I started this in Greenie's thread, but, people suggested to make a new thread for this, so here we are... So, Spring is finally here. Or... sort of.... ( But, that snow the other day has nothing to do with the bright yellow and pastel green I feel like wearing, right? ) Anyway, I was thinking we could do 30+ day challenge of Spring ( and Summer ) colors, just for fun, and the heck of it. Let's have some fun! If anyone feels like joining me, please do. If you don't want to do the challenge, please feel free to stop by just because, whenever and why ever you feel like to. Let's paint the BT with Spring colors, ladies and gents! P.S. It turned out I need to remove what's left of my "wisdom" asap... so.... I'll start the fun, and re-join you as soon as I can. But, you go ahead and have fun. I'll be watching, and live through you all! Day 1 - Maybelline Vivids in Shocking Coral Day 2 - NARS Audacious in Brigitte + NARS lip gloss in Priscilla Day 3 - MAC Candy Yum Yum Day 4 - Chanel Rouge Allure Velvet in La Romanesque
I just read in a back issue of Rachael Ray - "$137. That's the average total cost of your makeup. And for a third of you that number actually goes north of $200!" OMG! I carry more than this in my purse.
Was asked to post an updated thread. Let's continue the fun shall we? What are you wearing today? 1. nars sheer glow foundation, mont blanc 2. perricone md no bronzer bronzer 3. urban decay eyeshadow primer potion, original 4. too faced chocolate bar palette 5. benefit theyre real mascara 6. rimmel london stay matte powder, natural 7. benefit dallas 8. nars blush, sin 9. buxom full on lipstick, las vegas
I like to plan for these sales way in advance. I know it's not till the end of March / early April but I thought this feed would be fun to see what everyone is considering! What do you plan on purchasing?
Here's what I'm considering... definitely need to slim down the list... what do you think are must haves out of these? Opinions on these products?
(repurchasing these pills.. gone through 4 bottles already.. love them!)
I don't mean expensive ones like AmorePacific but more like from the inexpensive brands Etude House, Skin Food, Face Shop, Innisfree, Leneige, Nature Republic etc. I've tried and likes: - Etude House wonderpore toner - Skin Food peach sake pore serum - erm, currently working my way through 70+ sheet masks from brands above (plus My Beauty Diary and Tony Moly) So aside from those, any favorite scrubs, masks, treatment, moisturizer etc?
In the spirit of all the other wonderful challenges on BT right now, I'm starting up a nail polish challenge for us. I have a ridiculous stash and I need to show my polish some love. With nail polish, once a day would be absurd (of course), so let's try and show off a new look and polish once a week. I'm personally going with manicures only, but if you'd rather do pedicures or even both go for it! I'm eager to see your collections and meet other polish junkies. It's past time for me to commit to using my stash!

I know Korean skincare/makeup is touted a lot on here. And a fair amount of it is REALLY affordable, and of course, tends to be really cute. My question is... what is the actual quality of the products/ingredients like? What would they compare to? I don't want to buy a bunch of Innissfree face masks or a Tony Moly lipbalm, for example, if they're no better than the cheap ones I can get at a drugstore. Aside from the "cute" and "unique" factor, I don't really "get" why Korean brands are recommended (not talking about the higher end stuff here). Insight appreciated!
First off, let me be clear I do not like beach vacations. I hide under a huge sunhat under an umbrella, and get panic attacks at the thought of the sun touching my face - even when I'm wearing Bioderma's SPF 100 + Institute Esthederm's 100% block! We do 4 beach vacations a year because the children like them, and I never have any idea about what makeup to take with me, or when to wear what. So I note that all the other women look ultra glamorous day and night, while I look ... lost. Please, please, please give me tips for what makeup to wear to the pool/beach/dinner/breakfast/bar/stores etc.? Specific product ideas would be very welcome indeed! Thanks in advance for any ideas and advice you are willing to share!
I find because of my sensitive acne prone skin that certain brands work well for me. I also fear that I get caught up with a brand and if I want a product it takes very little to sway me (if I have the money for it of course) I have acquired almost all the Tarte Clay blushes and the Kat Von D LE palettes...etc. It's like a sickness. Very hard for me to try new brands!

I hope you guys don't mind me starting this one off early. I feel like April is my month. New job and all. So here's a new makeup item added to my sailor moon collection. So basically. That cap can be put on a pen or pencil or my eyeliner.
I'm asian girl and have some acne spots that make my skin look red. So does this make me yellow base skin tone? I tried shade 3 and it worked well. But I am not sure whether I should try shade 2 before buying shade 3 or not. Is shade 2 also yellow base? Or is it pink base?
So I have been doing "research" and found out that those blackheads I thought i had been dealing with is actually sebaceous filaments. I know they can't be permanently removed but does anyone know how to lessen appearance? Especially on those days that I don't feel like putting my foundation on! I have combo skin, more oily now that the weather is warming up. Any advice would be great!! thanks!
I am 40 and have dry skin and fine lines/wrinkles. I am looking for a foundation that won't make me look more wrinkly and dry than I already do. Any suggestions for a foundation that will provide coverage without drying out my skin?
I am looking for a new skin care regimen. I have combination skin and my main problem is clogged pores and blackheads all over. I want something that will solves my skin issue but that will not dry me out since i am already dry on the sides of my face while the center is oily. I am looking to find a face wash or cleanser, a toner, and a moisturizer. Please help me with recommendations. I have tried everything under the sun, even a dermatologist for years did not help me.
I am looking for a good cleanser- not too basic but something that will clean and clear everything out of my skin without drying it out- nit really concerned with actual breakouts but if it would help with overall texture of the skin that would be a plus....... Currently using a sample of ren cleansing balm- any opinions on this are also welcomed!
