I am looking to upgrade my Chi straightener that I have had for 4 years. I have my options down to the drybar straightener or the T3 Luxe straightener. I have very thick corse hair. Can someone please tell me what one they recommend?
I used to wear Mac's Studio Fix foundation in NW18, recently I have tried NARS Sante Fe (which I have liked until recently it seems to not last as long as it used to - probably due to the summer humidity rise in good ole GA). I have combination to oily skin (dry around my chin and tips of my nose, but very oily T-zone). I'm thinking about trying the Kat Von D Lock-It Powder Foundation, but of course am hesitant about jumping into a powder foundation. I loved MAC until it starting irritating my face after a few years, and I really want a full coverage foundation that doesn't make me feel oily and lasts all day. Opinions? Also if I go with the Lock-It, what color is comparable to to Mac's NW18? Also, I have bad bags under my eyes, any suggestions for the best under-eye coverage?? Thanks so much!!
I'm super curious about everyone's shopping habits here, so starting a thread. A friend and I got into a discussion of how many lipstick we own--each of us own over 100. Are we crazy? I've always loved collecting makeup... Feel free to post photos of your makeup collections as well! How many products do you estimate you have when it comes to makeup? Skincare? Haircare? What brands/types of products do you hoard the most of and why? How do you store all your products? What do you estimate that you spend at Sephora yearly? Monthly? What’s the most you’ve ever spent on one single Sephora shopping trip/haul, and what did you buy? I'll go first! - I have over 100 lipsticks, which is the bulk of what I hoard. I also collect eyeshadows (I own about 50, give or take). I don't have so much skincare or haircare, but have recently been buying all the Drunk Elephant products. - Lipsticks by Dior, because their the best in my opinion. I also have a ton of Lime Crime lipsticks that I buy when they have their really good sales. - I buy plastic makeup storage things from Amazon but I hate them. Anyone have any advice? I'd love to start using vintage trays or something but feel I have too many products. - Recently I've been spending a lot more and have qualified as VIB Rouge for the past two years. My mom and I share the same card and I think we spent about $1,500 over the past year together. This month, we went on a haul and spent close to $500 total, which was our biggest splurge ever, stocking up on spring and summer products.
Recently visited Les Senteurs (London UK) and they had the most lovely staff! They were so knowledgeable about perfume and offered three complimentary samples based on a fragrance "fitting." They understood my taste right away, unlike so many SAs who typecast me based on my appearance and try to offer me pretty (boring) florals and tame, fresh scents despite my insistence to the contrary. Unfortunately, I'd already bought the perfume I wanted from a department store before visiting LS... how I wish I'd held off and just purchased it from them! Anyways, I thought it might be nice to show some love to people in small shops with an in depth knowledge of their products and a genuine love for them. Any specialists/retailers that readers here would like to recommend?
Hello My cousin really loves how I do makeup and wants me to do hers for her wedding. I am good at makeup but I am no makeup artist. I did a practice run on her and it turned out fine. What do you recommend to make this really look like a professional did it.
I was using MUFE HD Invisible Cover Concealer, color 305. Huge fan of it, the only concealer that has ever matched my tone and worked the way I needed it to- but I've just discovered that it has been discontinued Can you please tell me if the new MUFE Ultra HD line has a color that would the color that the HD #305 was? Thank you!
I have a medium skin tone and I'm thinking of purchasing the new Benefit Cheek Parade because I don't have any blush/highlight palette yet. I have medium to dark skin though, so I'm worried that Hoola won't be useful to me as a bronzer, or the Dandelion just plain won't show. Can I use the Rockateur as a highlight? Is this palette worth it or will I just end up with colors I can't use? Would you recommend the colors here for people with medium to dark skintone? (I'm NC35, Estee Lauder Tawny) All the videos show girls with fair caucasian skin so I'm worried that even if it looks good on them, it won't on me. 😅 Spoiler (Highlight to read) Spoiler (Highlight to read) Spoiler (Highlight to read) If you wouldn't recommend this, can you recommend me a good blush/highlight/contour palette under $75? I have combination skin that can get a bit oily so maybe powder would be a better choice.
HI SEPHORA FAM, I was wanting to bring to your attention my FAVORITE matte lip. It comes from the company "Beauty Bakerie".You can eat a five course meal with this one and it will look even better than when you first put it on. It does not come off. They have the cutest colors that are unique to other companies. I would love for sephora to carry these products so I, and all of my friends could buy them up.
For as long as I've known about this brand I've wanted to try their products but I can't buy anything online so if you guys could possibly start selling this in store that would be absolutely amazing! Honestly if this does happen I would buy so many things.
Beauty Bakerie is a cruelty-free, vegan, and mostly gluten free cosmetic company that I am currently obsessed with. The Lip Whips (matte liquid lipsticks) are too legit to quit. They come in multiple finishes (matte & metallic mainly along with one gloss color so far) and the range of colors is to die for. There are bright daring colors, darker bolder ones, colors you would never imagine in lipstick form! The smudge-proof, budge-proof factor alone would be enough to reel the average beauty maniac into the fold of Beauty Bakerie. The packaging for their products is really nice looking (the highlighters come in containers that look like ice cream pints!!! They even have their own makeup remover for the lip whips because they are THAT smudge-proof, budge-proof. So yeah, you guys should look into testing Beauty Bakerie at some of your locations. You're seriously missing out. 💋💋💋
Everything from Beauty Bakerie is absolutely amazing and incredibly long lasting. I wore one of the lipsticks to prom and it lasted through till the NEXT DAY. This is after dancing, sweating, eating, and sleeping. My friends wear the eyeliner and they absolutely LOVE it. Every product stays on through everything. While most matte lipsticks are really drying, Beauty Bakerie lipsticks are not. They come in an insane amount of colors (literally anything you could think of) and finishes (matte metallic, matte, glossy)
I've been using the Glossier Milky Jelly Cleanser with my Clarisonic and even thought the cleanser removes all my face makeup it seems to trap it in the brush (leaving the brush stained looking and not white even after I rinse the bristles separately). Does anyone else have this issue?
I have a lot of doubles of deluxe samples and I saw here that people do a traveling box to exchange the samples I was wondering if I could start one and if I need to know anything before I do (I read the rules on another thread) and if anybody would be in! I have mostly skincare but a couple makeup items too Thanks!!!
Has anyone noticed that the MUFE HD Stick Foundation changes colour over time? I bought # 117 (yellow based) less than 1 year ago and now when I apply the same stick, the formulation applies very PINK!?
I've been looking at the new brand that just launched at Sephora and I think that the eyeshow palettes look really pretty! Has anyone bought one yet or been able to swatch one? It's hard to know what the quality will be without any reviews...if you have seen them in person what other eyeshadow quality what you equate them with?!
I have so so many clogged pores on my face and I have no idea what to do. Does anyone know how I can get rid of them? I just started a new skincare routine today: 1) Simple Micellar Water 2) Clean & Clear Pore Cleansing Face Wash 3) Neutrogena Alcohol Free Toner 4) Hydrating Serum 5) Moisturizer ---- any thoughts on that?
