Usually, I can make a palette work for me, but the Smashbox Heatwave Palette is just not doing the trick for me. The colors are pretty, but they go on really light. Plus the fallout is ridiculous. I bought it a long time ago, so I'm gonna have to MsGyver this bad boy and use some colors with other palettes I have to make it work. I guess I can try it wet, too. I haven't done that yet. What eyeshadow palette to you regret purchasing? http://www.sephora.com/product/productDetail.jsp?k eyword=SMASHBOX%20Heat%20Wave%20Eye%20Shadow%20Pal ...

So I still haven't spent the $50 to get $20 off. Ive bought smaller items but for some reason I haven't been able to find the right item for this deal. I think it's comical because I don't seem to have a problem with spending money at sephora… I just want to feel like Im getting a deal on a really good item. (I don't want to waste it). Anyone else out there still have their $20 off $50?
I am an absolute animal lover. Lately, more and more videos of animals being treated cruelly are surfacing, and watching them kills me. I'm the type of person that feels bad when a moth gets smashed on my windshield while I'm driving. I would love to become a vegan, but I have no idea where to start. It will also be difficult for me because my fiance is a chef, and he loves his steak (and every other type of meat), and I know he won't do this with me. I feel like everything I eat (besides fruit and vegetables) is made with animal products. I'm also concerned that it will be a lot more expensive to buy vegan food. Is anyone here a vegan? Can someone help me start off? Are there certain stores that sell more vegan food than others? Please help!

Haven't seen these in a while, so I thought I'd write some up. Hope there aren't any repeats from recent ones! 1. What is your favorite thing about winter? 2. What is the weirdest quirk you have, if any? 3. Imagine you’ve been invited by <insert chat show host’s name here) to be on his/her show. Who would it be, and what would you talk about/be promoting? 4. What’s one beauty product that is overhyped/just not worth it, in your opinion? 5. What’s one beauty product that you think is worth every last penny/can’t live without it? 6. What are your most trusted beauty brands (high end and/or drugstore)? 1. What is your favorite thing about winter? hot chocolate 2. What is the weirdest quirk you have, if any? I love fiction a little too much and constantly make references to fictional characters. People often don't follow. :-/ 3. Imagine you’ve been invited by <insert chat show host’s name here) to be on his/her show. Who would it be, and what would you talk about/be promoting? I'd love to be a published writer one day, so it would be amazing to be invited by Craig Ferguson. We'd talk about my bestseller and Doctor Who. (I should probably start churning out book ideas if I want to realize this dream, lol) 4. What’s one beauty product that is overhyped/just not worth it, in your opinion? Nars Orgasm blush. It's nice, but no more special than my other blushes 5. What’s one beauty product that you think is worth every last penny/can’t live without it? Philosophy Miracle Worker retinoid pads 6. What are your most trusted beauty brands (high end and/or drugstore)? I have complete faith in anything produced by Too Faced and Ole Henriksen!
Go fast to Tartes sale section 30% off today ! I regretted not buying that and was NOT going to pay some ridiculous price on Amazon/eBay. Merry Christmas to me! So happy it was in stock. Also brought back was The Big Thrill color collection.
Hello all! I was just wondering what everyone's favorite part of their morning beauty routine is just for fun!! Whether it's playing around with all your different eyeshadow colors, putting on your blush for some rosy cheeks, swiping on your favorite lipstick, making your hair look flawless, or even that last spray of perfume. Personally, I just love picking out what lipstick/lipgloss combo I'm going to finish off my look with. I am a lipstick girl all the way!! What's your favorite??
Hi everyone!!! This is a follow up post to my male celebrity crushes post from a few weeks ago! If you could marry any male celebrity, who would it be? I would marry Henry Cavill. That man is fineeeeeee. But he's 12 years older than me I have him as my phone background and my computer screen saver 3, 2, 1, GO!!!! P.S. I really should be studying for my finals but, I'm too stressed, tired, and don't want to anymore. :/
Thought I'd start a non-makeup thread on those times inside a Sephora store when we've unknowingly been placed on the spot -- and possibly blushing every shade of pink one could imagine. -During a recent trip, the employee who rang me up practically yelled, "You have XXXX points!!! Would you like to redeem anything from our display?" Needless to say, everyone standing around the register turned to look at me, and I could see the wheels turning in their heads as to how much I've spent. Clearly they've missed the memo that 4X points was a few months prior and that I'm a points hoarder. -One pushy (borderline getting on my nerves) MUA asked which UD or YSL eyeshadow I had on, since the color was extremely vibrant and glittery on my eyes. It was neither but, in fact, a L'oreal Infallible. The plus side was that I was able to shop in peace after telling her that Share away, folks!
So McDonalds decided to start serving poutine across Canada. I'm pretty sure it was available in the Quebec McDonalds but now it's gonna be across the country. This kinda annoys me even if I don't like McDonalds (probably because I had too much late night McDick's back in college).... I mean they are ruining a national dish!!! If people who never had poutine before decide to have it from McDonalds for the first time... pretty sure they won't like it... ah! marde de clown! My fellow Canucks what do you think? My American friends... never have poutine at McDonalds! THIS IS NOT POUTINE THIS IS POUTINE End of rant!
Hi all, so I've been using makeup a long time, and I've always bought the less expensive items, NYX is probably the most luxurious makeup item I own but I want to change that and begin buying some higher end items to add to my already large collection. With that said what are the top five items I should look into picking up first? Thanks!
One of them even had four samples! I was really confused because the box on the left was so big and I got kind of excited because maybe delirious me sent me a surprise gift but.. it was just a normal package and they probably ran out of regular boxes because it didn't say sephora anywhere on it haha I know, I'm wasteful with packaging... I just couldnt make up my mind and made little orders also, the bite set looks so cute and wonderful! too bad rhubarb was broken so I have to go exchange it in store tomorrow
I have been a cheap drugstore make up user since I started wearing make up. Last year, I began getting pink eye/swollen eyelids every time I wore make up. I stopped for a while and then switched to Physicians Formula due to its natural less allergenic ingredients. However, I am unsatisfied with the quality of the products. I was wondering if you could suggest some brands that would be good for my sensitive skin. I've heard some bad things about CLINIQUE, what else would you recommend?
So... I knew I only needed to spend about $40-$50 to achieve Rouge AND I just couldn't wait for the triple fragrance promotion that's supposed to happen sometime this month. Thus, I went right into my local Sephora and got hubby a new Dior fragrance for Christmas. (What Korres Cherry Oil glosses? Oh these? Uh, well they're for in case I forgot someone. What do you mean everyone else knows it's MY favorite Korres gloss shade?!? You just stand there and be a supportive husband and mind your biz, Zippy!) Well, they were out of the Rouge Welcome Kit. However, I got tickled because the Sales Associate says, "We're out of the Rouge Welcome Kits, Ms. Fuller. But we have the VIB Welcome Kit since you never got one of those and you can use that card until we get the Rouge Kit in!" LOL! Such great girls at my Sephora, God love them!! Humorous because?? I've been a VIB for about 3 years now.
So after missing the Rihanna Holiday train (I really wanted Pleasure Bomb ) I was so excited about Naked 3 that I opted out of ordering online because I wanted to feel it in store. So on my lunch break I head to my local Sephora to buy it and get my birthday gift. I use my $20 off $50 and as I goto pay I notice two store credit cards from Sephora and try my luck with the values, glad I did. I only paid $8.50 for Naked 3. Makes up for the lipstick and is officially the cheapest birthday gift I ever got myself What did you ladies get with your $20 off $50?
I can't remember which thread it was on, but one of y'all mentioned Nordstrom's Rack having makeup and beauty products. And, dang, sure enough mine did!! How'd I NOT know this? Well... this is what just one shelf looked like, and there were about 5 like this: And, why yes that DOES day UD eyeliner for under $4... And I got ALL these polishes!! Ack!
I would have gotten mine today had UPS not left 2 of my boxes behind at the shipping facility :face palm: Hopefully tomorrow they won't leave without it. I managed to get one of my Sephora packages from black Friday though. OT: the UPS guy was using a budget truck to make deliveries...interesting, he said the other truck was too full so he had to use it....

Hey ladies (and gents?) – As 2013 is coming to a close, I thought we’d like to share the best products we discovered/tried/bought this year. Let’s break it into sub-categories. I’ll go first Face – Laura Mercier Silk Crème foundation – I feel like this is my holy grail foundation, but I still want to try others. Eyes – Laura Mercier Artist palette – It won’t be a Laura Mercier list, I promise Lips – Dior Crème de Rose lip balm Best deal – I’m going to cheat and say two: All the mini perfumes for 100 points instead of 250 points and the Nars Guy Bourdin blush palette PS – Sorry I’ve started waaay too many threads the past few days. That’s what cabin fever will do to ya! Well, that and draining your wallet from all the online shopping you do. Lol PPS - Feel free to add other categories as well, these were the only ones I could think of at the moment.
Hi girls! So I ordered quite a few of the $10 steals and I thought it would be fun for us to write up mini review on them for each other. Mine arrived last night, so I've only tried two so far. Eyeko Mascara/Eyeliner (still available) I was SO excited to try the Eyeko Skinny Eyeliner.... and it wasn't very pigmented. Maybe it is a little dry and I need to shake it up (??) and try again tomorrow. I'll report back. I haven't tried the mascara yet but the wand is very unique. http://www.sephora.com/skinny-mini-duo-P377021?sku Id=1470962 Caudalie Hand Cream and Lip Conditioner Duo (sold out- individual links below) I had been wanting to try the lip conditioner and I constantly use hand lotion so this was perfect for me. The lip conditioner is very smooth and smells nice. The hand lotion smells sooooo good (sort of citrusy?) and my hands feel lovely! What do you guys think of your $10 sets? http://www.sephora.com/lip-conditioner-P6034?skuId =241653 http://www.sephora.com/h-nail-cream-P152203?skuId= 941609

Okay...here's the deal. It's time for me to make room for baby stuff for the new addition coming in April (Yippeee!!!!). I decided to take a look at everything I have but don't use anymore--and I have quite a few things. Most of the things I have and dont' use are because I love the products but my sensative skin won't allow me to use them. Here's my list: Bare Minerals eye shadows in: onyx (liner), mystery, denim, sugar plum and masquerade Buxom shimmer shadows in Beagle and Pug Make Up Forever Aqua Creme Shadows in Aqua Black and Shade 54 Sephora Shadows in midnight kiss, caroline's pride and armelle Bare Minerals Foundation in Fairly Medium, mineral veil and warmth make Up Forever HD Liquid Foundation in N130 (I think that's the sade number--it's a medium/light shade) VS Pro Bronzing Face Primer VS Tinted Moisturizer/Primer Delux Samples of: Sephora pin-up pink lip gloss (still in wrapper) Sephora Instant Moisturizer (never used) Kat Von D Powder Foundation in Medium 54 9Still in wrapper) Smashbox under eye primer (opened, but not used) Products that have been used: boscia clear complexion tonic Sephora Waterproof eye makeup remover Murad exfoliating acne treatment gel and spot treatment Boscia BB cream Fragrances--Full size bottle, most of them barely used: Georgio Armani Acqua di Dioia 1oz bottle and 3.4 oz bottle Ibiza Sol Urban Flowers Paris Urban Flowers London Pur Blanca- Blossom Just Play Philosophy You are Divine Philosophy Love Sweet Love U by Ungaro for her (Four 1.7 oz bottles, still in wrapper)--I love this stuff, but it doesn't love me back :-( Skin So soft Satin Glow Glow Gel (seven 6.7 oz bottle, still sealed) Full Size mark mascara in jet black Few misc eyeshadow colors and lotions Some of the products are used! I know that they are clean and all that...I never use my fingers for dipping into my make-up and I'm not including anything that is not hygenic...like used mascara! And...I'm giving all this away to whoever wants it. If you want it, PM me. but there are a few rules...I'm giving this away because I hope someone can use this stuff. I don't want any trouble and I won't be liable for anything--not that I'm not 100% confident that all these products are perfectly good and all that, but I don't want someone trying to sue me cause one of the lotions made them break out...ok. I'll ship to anywhere in the US, adn I'd like to get this to the post office on Thursday when I go mail out my Christmas presents. I will package everything very carefully and put anything liquid in ziploc bags. But I can't be responsible for any damage that might happen during shipping. I really, seriously just want to give this stuff to someone that can use it, without any trouble. And if there is anything about this post that is against the rules or guidelines, please let me know! I read through them and didn't see anything that would be, but I don't want to be banned from the most awesome forum ever!
Has anyone already tried the Chocolate bar? I see it is already on the website but not in stock. Also no reviews just yet. Just wanted to know if anyone has tried or maybe wants to try it? How do Too Faced shadows compare to the other neutral pallets out there (i.e Naked 1, 2, or 3, Lorac pro, etc) I see that it is around the same price range as all the others. So what do you think?? http://www.sephora.com/the-chocolate-bar-eye-palet te-P384402?skuId=1578012
