I'm definitely done for 2014, and I qualified for Rouge with $3 to spare. I would be shocked to requalify next year, but I suppose you never know. But if I do, I need all the help I can get. So do you ever decide to stop buying towards the end of the year so your purchases will count towards next year's spend total? Or do you know that you'll qualify for Rouge ten times over anyway, so it really makes no difference either way?
I am looking for a liquid foundation... I have oily skin and break out on my forehead and jaw line, I am not too worried about full coverage though, I would rather have something light to medium so my skin feels like it can breathe. A lot of my current makeup is matte so i am really interested in something illuminating and dewy...Have been reading about Yves Saint Laurent le teint touche eclat illuminating foundation, Diorskin nude skin-glowing makeup, Nars sheer glow foundation...I live too far from a store to go try things so just want some insight!
For those of us that love lipsticks and have several of them, do you rotate or reach for the same few? I wear some more than others. And some have been neglected a lot (although they are very pretty). I thought of holding myself to wearing a new lipstick everyday for 30 days. Lets see how long this will last. If I last 30 days, maybe I will go longer. Ha...lets see if I last 2 weeks. Anybody else? I am quite excited about it.... Day 1, 11/10/14 - Maybelline Vivids in Vivid Rose.

Anyone know of what Sephora is doing for Boxing Day? .....I believe it's Black Friday down in the states? Never been to Sephora on Boxing Day. I heard that they might be selling some leftover's from Black Friday.
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 have been using Caudalie Vinexpert Radiance Day Cream for a few years. It is time to replace and I am searching for a less expensive option. I only use it under my eyes and between my nose and mouth for the illuminizing effects. Can you suggest an alternative? I break out easily so I need a product that addresses that, too.
Two weeks ago I stepped up my retinol game at night from the Algenist Retinol Firming and Lifting Serum to Paula's Choice Clinical 1% Retinol Treatment Cream and went through peeling, redness, and especially sensitivity (I was accidentally blending this up under my eyes and onto my lids when I put my eye cream on and my eyes were having none of it - water burned and the only thing that I found that didn't irritate them was Neosporin). When I was going through the adjustment, sunscreen was adhering to my skin increasingly poorly, which I just chalked up to the flaking and dryness. Now that my skin has adjusted to the retinol, which I am able to use daily, sunscreen will barely adhere to my skin. I've been using the same amount of the same formulas (Kate Sommerville Waterlight, Supergoop City Serum, MDSolar Sciences SPF 50, Bioderma Photoderm MAX, and Neutrogena Dry Touch SPF 45) as well as the same skincare, but they don't blend in and don't stay put. If I don't wear makeup, they look obvious on the skin becasue of the streaks they leave, and if I do, then all of the formulas just ball up when I try to blend anything out. I think that it is becasue my skin texture has improved by leaps and bounds, but am not entirely sure. Has anyone else encountered this problem, or is it just a 'me' thing? I would love to hear any suggestions for sunscreens that you all think would work as well. I would like to avoid using waterproof, but, as of now, it looks to be my only feasible option .
went into sephora today to buy the hourglass light palette because i got a gift card for the holidays. I got it home and it was shattered. I'm going to go back to sephora on Monday and return it for a new one. However, I used my 10% off vib card and I'm afraid that I'm going to have to pay more for it because i used the coupon the first time. Not mad or anything just sad.
I have fair skin but it tends to have a lot of redness. My t-zone can get oily but I also get a lot of oiliness on my nose. I like a more matte look and full coverage. Any suggestions? Let me know if any other info would be helpful.
Happy December, guys! I, for one, love December. We have so many lovely holidays (& my birthday), and holidays = presents (& eggnog). Share all the new goodies you got this month, no haul is too small! Here's what I got tonight, so it was probably December somewhere, right?
I know about the free shipping, VIB Rouge events, the free makeovers, etc. But do you get anything upfront when you get your VIB Rouge status? Like when I reached VIB I was given a free makeover card and a 10% off discount on a later purchase. Do you get another discount card? One of my friends mentioned a lipstick, but she doesn't know for sure.
Hello beauties! I need your help with something... Does anybody know where could I get a wig like this one? Hairdo AND the color, too ( especially the color! )? Exactly the same if possible ( or minus bangs ). I absolutely don't know anything about wigs, so any possible help, recommendations and suggestions are very welcome, and much appreciated. Happy Holidays, everyone! Edit: I used to color my hair to similar color, but the maintenance was a huge pain in the behind! So, no matter how badly I wanna do it again... I'd just rather give wig a chance first... It's not the same, but considering I don't want to dye my hair again just yet ( enjoying my natural blond hair for the time being ), a wig wouldn't be a bad idea for those occasions when I feel like enjoying this color again sometimes. And enjoying this do without cutting my hair... for now...
Just wanted to spread the good news that Illamasqua is having a 50-70% off sale over on their site right now. Prime opportunity for us USA residents to get some deals on products we can't have in store anymore. I plan on taking advantage and getting my precious havoc eyeliner in bulk on sale for $13. What will you buy?
SO EXCITED!! 11/28/14, they are coming out with 50 LE miniature lipsticks, selling at $32 each. I need them all. A snippet from an article about them: " In the Lips & Boys lineup, there are 10 shade ranges, encompassing nude browns, violets and plums, metallics, reds and light pinks. The high-pigment shades are done in a base of soja seed extract, Brazilian murumuru butter and chamomile flower oil. Thirty-six offerings are new shades; 10 are from Velvet Suede, Ford’s current seasonal color story, and four are from previous seasons. Ford predicted bestsellers will include Tomas, a coral hue; Matthew, a coral pink; Flynn, a light pink; Giacomo, a deep rose, and Patrick, a muted coral pink. Each clutch-size lipstick will retail for $32. The lipsticks can also be packaged in sets of any three hues in the collection."
In the article posted in the Glossy dated 12/12/14, Pro artist Chris Sams makes reference to a Color IQ Lip guide that can give recommended lip shades in a variety of finishes if you know your IQ number. Does anyone know how to access it? I don't believe my local store has one.
Hey ladies, I'm looking to buy a new flat iron/straightener. My hair is thick, wavy, and frizzy. I straighten my hair every day (I use a heat protector, no worries!) and I've previously only used a Chi, but all the ones I've had have broken or don't help me get the silky straightness I get when I go to the salon. Suggestions? Thanks!
I didn't know exactly where to post this but here goes. For any of you interested in buying Naked 3 or already own it like I do.. I bought the Naked 3 as soon as it came out, I remember having to wait two weeks for it because it got delayed during bad weather some place. I received it, and that excitement wore off real quick. I swatched it and was happy with the colors.. but once it was on my eyes, I wasn't blown away. So, there's one makeup product that I got caught up in the hype with and it ended up being a boring ol' thing. It's easily one of the very few palettes that doesn't get any love. I think in total I've used it four times. The last time I had used it, I noticed 3 of the shadows popped out. It has never been dropped, ever.. yet here's these shadows popping out. Then another. WELL. They were so easy to depot, I just did so right now and put them in a Z palette provided by the wonderful DiVWA. I took all of them out because quite frankly, they were all pretty lose. Why do i care so much about an item I don't actually use? Because, I paid money for it, and for the amount it's worth, I shouldn't have problems with it coming off its palette. It doesn't get hit by direct sunlight so it's not like that's what caused the sticky glue to wear off. I don't recommend this palette to anyone, the colors i'm sure you can find dupes of, but if you want something that stays put, the packaging isn't going to protect your shadows if it DOES fall. I just wish it weren't too late for me to return this item, but it is, unfortunately.
