Nordstrom Anniversary Sale Wish List
Not sure if this is allowed? But I'm going to give it a shot and hope it doesn't get closed *covers eyes*   What's on everyone's wish list for this sale? The sale started yesterday for card holders and will be available starting July 18!   I'm having a hard time in finding anything I like on the previews I've seen so far!   But I really want this!

What would I be in Dolce and Gabbana Matte Foundation
I'm going to Finland in October and right now, my color  IQ is only showing the colors that would look good in during my summer shades.  It says that I should wear Golden Honey because in the summer, Kat Von D Deep 66 kinda matches my skin tone (it's still a little bit dark but is passable).  But when I tried to look up my old MUFE fall/winter color (dark beige), it also gives me golden honey.  I don't think that's right but the next color up is soft tan and I know that would be too light (I don't consider myself tan"). No one is carrying D&G in store for me to try out (no stores that I could find) so what would be my best bet for a fall,matte color?  I want to try to stay with D&G because I'm dying to try their line since I'\ve heard that they are spectacular.

PRODUCTS YOU REGRET BUYING
Hey Beauties ! I was just here thinking and browsing the Sephora site along with my collection and it made me think about some stuff that just wasn't worth all the hype or wasn't all that . Most recently for me it has been the Benefit There Real Push up liner, it just wasn't a good consistency in my opinion and i totally could have done without it but anyway i thought i would start the discussion of what products have you purchased that wasn't worth the hype or you regret getting

Product Help Please!
I'm looking for a product to replace my Marc Jacobs Close-Up (302) Lightshow Luminizing Powder. I bought one near the end of last year and have been trying so hard to make it last but I'd rather just find something else to use when this is over that I can always find. Multiple products that are similar in each shade would be fine, but I prefer palettes. Or if you have any suggestions for different colour highlighters, etc! I have fair skin, hazel eyes and dark brown hair. Hope someone can help me, thanks!

Skincare routine for oily skin ?
Hey all, I need recommendations on a skincare routine. I have oily skin, and there has been times that I breakout. I'm not sure if it's because I don't cleanse my skin well, or if it's just the foundation that I use. So far I wash my face every morning and night. I use Philosophy to take off my makeup first, then I use the clarisonic gel cleanser with the clarisonic machine which I love. Is there something I'm missing ? How do you care for your oily skin ?

Night Cream Ingredient(s) Question
Are these good ingredients for a Night Cream for Dry & can be Sensitive Skin? -Seaweed Night Cream (Mario B.) : Deionized Water, Bladderwrack Extract, Polyglycerylmethacrylate, Stearic Acid, Isopropyl Myristate, Cetyl Alcohol, Glycerin, Hydrolyzed Elastin, Hyaluronic Acid, Collagen, Propylparaben, Triethanolamine, Methylparaben, Benzoic Acid, Imidazolidinyl Urea   * I was gonna buy the toner from this line (Mario / Seaweed) but didn't b/c I wasn't familiar w/ the Bladderwrack. Bet I'm missing out but I'm not familiar w/ the brand in general! I did see that it has urea in it as well & that is supposed to be a plus, right!    Thanks In Advance for your help! BTW, I use the NUDE SKIN sleeping mask but not every night & was wanting something for in between. I was using Clinique's Turn Around night cream but have been out for a/b a month + & wanted to maybe try this (It got good ratings & sounds awesome).

I know I won't do this again!
As most of you know, I have a daughter who's 21 months old (2 years in October!  Ack!)  So naturally, I usually put my wallet and checkbook (along with a lip color or two) into her diaper bag instead of carrying that AND my purse with me everywhere.  I've been sick with side effects from the antibiotics I've been on for the past week and so haven't gone anywhere, but my car has been sitting outside instead of normally in our garage.   You can see what's coming, can't you?   I finally got the diaper bag out last night.   I had FIVE lip colors in the bag.   I should mention it's been at least 80 degrees in the Pacific Northwest for the last week or so.  Two of the colors were lip gloss, so no harm done.  The other three?  Nars Lip Pencil in New Lover, Clinique Intense Moisturizing Chubby Stick in Roundest Raspberry, and Dior Lip Glow.   The Clinique and Dior were brand new, only been used a couple of times.  Popped all of them in the fridge overnight and they're okay now, but...yeah.  Lesson learned.  DON'T LEAVE ANY LIP COLORS IN THE DIAPER BAG!

Anastasia Beverly Hills Amrezy Palette
So Anastasia just released a new eyeshadow palette in collaboration with an amazing MUA/beauty blogger by the name of Amra Olevic aka "Amrezy" on Instagram. This collaboration took 8 months to create and is Anastasia's very first official partnership with a MUA. It is $29 dollars for 10 shades and this palette can only be purchased at the ABH website and in Ulta stores starting Monday. Some Ulta stores have it already. I am planning on purchasing it so if anyone wants swatches just let me know.

Mark Jacobs kiss pops.... Thoughts?
I got the kiss pop I ordered in the mail today... Definitely not what I was expecting.    On first looks, the packaging is super cute and feels very high quality.    I ordered crush, which was described as a tangerine red, and all I'm seeing is tangerine. I'm very pale, and this comes out as a true orange on me in natural light. But mostly, this is far from moisturizing, in my opinion. It nearly crumbled when I applied it, and already my lips feel dry. I'll wear it around the apartment tonight, but I'm not so sure this will be staying.    what are everyone else's thoughts on these?

Messed Up/Funny/Off-The-Wall things makeup sales associates, aestheticians, etc have said you
I was just looking through the "What Are You Wearing" thread and looking through the list of products I suddenly realized I very rarely use concealer under my eyes anymore. It used to be one those "will not leave the without it" items. It got me thinking back to a moment many, many, MANY years ago at a Clinique counter...   I can't remember what I was shopping for (probably super double face powder because that was my HG back then. I think I was around 20 when this story happened - I'm 39 now for reference.) So anyway, the sales lady was trying to upsell me on a bunch more products of course (which, I was 20 and in college - good luck getting blood from that stone, lady) and this is what she said to me word-for-word:   "Honey, you're gorgeous but those dark circles are distracting me from the rest of your face."   Whhaaaaattt??? I honestly can't remember how I reacted or if I bought the product I went in for originally. I know that I did NOT buy any concealer though!    Have a couple more to post but BT is being super iPad unfriendly lately!   I don't want to open up any wounds with this post. Just hopefully dumb stuff SAs have said to you that you can look back on and laugh about now!

Guerlain Meteorite + talc
So tomorrow, I was going to buy Lingerie de Peau & try the Meteorite in stores to see if I like them enough to buy them. BUT, I think I took for granted that because this is such a high end product, it did not contain talc. But it does! I am shocked. I'm not paying 60+$ for some pretty pearls made of talc.    Is this just me or what? I never had problem with talk, and I wouldn't mind it too much if it was a 25$ powder, but for the price I'm paying, it better be talc free. Is is just me or if sometimes, luxury brands are a little behind in terms of ingredients and all?   What are your thoughts?

Ok started looking for a highlight pencil for under my eyebrow.....am probably going with Anastasia Brow Duality, over Benefits High Brow... but as I started looking at the Benefits line, I found it somewhat confusing....so do people actually buy stay don't stray, as well as erase paste, as well as the eye brightener.....anyways, my question,  which of these Benefits products should I start with? I am looking for a great face moisturizer, primer, brightener and tint, all in one would be FABULOUS! And it doesn't have to be just the Benefits line. And the best eye primer, brightener so that my makeup stays put? Thanx!!!!! MOST appreciated! Also, I am 57, so I would like to keep it age appropriate, Thank You!!!!

Beauty over 50
Well that was the most depressing hour of my life. I decided to google "beauty over 50" and I just feel like shooting myself lol. Apparently I'm supposed to wear tinted moisturizer (no foundation), 1-2 at most neutral eye shadows (no color under any circumstances) and forget about lipstick with color. Yes maam - keep that whole face as boring as neutral as possible.   You guys have no idea how this does NOT jive with my personality. I've worn makeup my entire life and I cannot tell you how often I've had ppl come up to me if I'm at a makeup counter and ask me for advice because they thought I worked there.    I understand at my ripe old age of 50 I shouldn't be glowing in the dark decked out with sparkles and glitter but my God, I just bought the Marc Jacobs Siren palette and I love it!! But apparently I should gather up all my non neutral makeup and bury it in the backyard.   Say it isn't so.

Clarisonic plus body brush issue! Has anyone had this happen?
I bought the Clarisonic plus a few weeks ago, and so far I like it, not so much love yet but its growing on me! Anyways, I recently had an issue where I tried to use my body brush in the shower and it kept stopping within a few seconds after turning on. I hadnt charged it in a while and when I checked the battery light it was on the lowest one and it was flickering, so I shrugged it off blaming it on low battery. However the face brush stayed on, yet I am guessing it doesnt need as much power. Well today I used my Clarisonic Body Brush in the shower again, worked just fine, had like three lights on. When my fiance went to use the body brush later that night it worked for the first three minute cycle, flashing two lights, but then kept turning off mid cycle. This time the brush still had two lights remaining... Obviously not being fully empty. Thoughts as to why this is happening? Has anyone else experienced this? Thanks!
