After hearing many success stories, I want to include some retinol products in my skin care routine. I researched a little and came to know that Retinol can be obtained from both animal and plant sources.Is there any way to know which brands use plant based/ vegan retinol in their products. Thankyou
with all the limited edition items that are released and the shark frenzies that follow, I'm interested in seeing what items my fellow BTers have snagged over the years that are now those coveted hard to find unicorns. Those beautiful things we wanted but missed out on. Basically, I want to see pictures of those Beauties I cannot have, just like I wznna see pictures of those hunky men in harlequin romance novels I can never have. Running to grab a box of tissues and some popcorn! Oh and as a sneak preview, here's my first self-deemed unicorn. This picture is from the Omotesando cosmetic boutique. The blusher in the middle is the real unicorn. It was only available at this one store location to celebrate its opening. I went in to snag one for someone else and they were sold out. See the sold out sticker? They sold out in a week and STILL had the darn set on display one month later!!! Why????
I've always been curious about these and since they are having their F&F I am wondering if I should take the plunge and order some. Does anyone have any experience with these or own any? Please let me know. Thanks everybody =)
Hi I am currently using Dior Forever Foundation shade 021. I could carry both 021 and 020. And I was thinking to buy the Hourglass Immaculate Foundation but I dont know which shade should I get. Im Asian, should I get the yellow undertone? Please help. Thank you guys! Much appreciated!
Is something like a Clarisonic good if you have "older" skin? I have oily skin. Blackheads on nose and breakouts around my period time only. But just wondering since I read it helps with collegen and maybe it will help with my overall skin health?

Hi! Does anyone know a color dupe of Gerard Lipstick in Buttercup and Gerard Lipgloss in Plum Crazy? Something that's either a cheap drugstore dupe or a higher end brand that I can swatch would be much appreciated
I placed my order a week ago and it still says that it is processing at the warehouse. Does anyone know if they are having delays or something? I sent them an email, but they haven't gotten back to me yet.
Hiya! I'm trying to find a good undereye concealer/brightener for my beautiful mom who is in her late 60s. She has sensitive eyes so it needs to be gentle and also super crease resistant because her years of love and wisdom have created lots of folds and creases around the eye, esp the "bag" area. She will not use a primer - one extra step. It would be great if it covered dark-ish circles and really brightened the whole eye, so nothing matte or cakey. thanks!!
Hello, I am currently using the Full Cover Concealer from MUFE in No.7 Sand and it was great during the summer time. And now, when we hits colder months in Canada, the concealer still do its job in terms of concealing and long-lasting and here comes the problem; the concealer look dried up and a bit caked on. I have tried mixed a little bit of the Diorskin Star Foundation with it to increase the "blendability" for the concealer. Afterward, it does made the blending nice and easy but it was not very skin-like. Now, I do moisturize well with Fresh Lotus Face Cream and Dior Hydralife Sorbete Serum. My skin is exfoliated with Paula's Choice Skin Perfecting 2% BHA Liquid as well as Clarisonic before hand so no dry patches whatsoever. Now, can beauty experts suggest some tips and tricks make the concealer look skin-like while maintaining the full full full coverage of the concealer?
Hi Everyone! Sephora used to sell a highlighter/luminizer set called the 'Harmony Trio'. I had bought the item a few times over the years and loved it. I accidentally took the one I had on vacation with me over the weekend and it BROKE in my checked bag! You'd think baggage handlers would be more considerate of the fact that I had fragile makeup in my suitcase Anyways, I checked the website as soon as I got back so I could order another and they're no longer sold. I'm heartbroken. Does anyone else have a recommendation for a powder highlighter set? The palette I used had three colors: a peachy tone, rose, and white which I used as both eye shadow and for highlighting. They were really pigmented which was awesome. Thanks!
We've talked about this before, but I thought I'd give Sephora a friendly reminder as to why they, and makeup companies, should shower us with deluxe samples. Never would I have allowed myself to even think about Dior quints, $60 for a small eyeshadow palette isn't something I could justify. Well that resolve lasted a whole 10 seconds after using the mini quint (came with the Dior mascara, but some of y'all got it as a promo). And so with one mini baby version of a shadow quint you got me to spend $60x2, and that's just the start of this obsession. Samples are also what got me to buy and love Better than Sex, Lights Camera Lashes, Nirvana White, C'est la Vie, Bright Crystal, UD Liar, Hourglass Child, Bite Musk, Porefessional, HG Veil primer, Nars eyeshadow primer, etc etc. I could go on and on and on. Reallly. Unfortunately most of these samples I bought myself, now you're lucky I'm a mini lover and go out of my way to buy little things, which make me love the bigger versions, but for those non mini lovers, you really should consider just making it rain samples. At least for the products that are worth it like the GG masks, or things you know people will fall in love with. Except Orgasm. The world has spoken and they're over it. Really. Stop
I have oily, acne prone skin, with moderate acne. I have pale skin that gets red really easily and its a little dull . I'm looking for a product that will completely change my skin. Hoping this product will do it. I've heard good things about it but I don't know if it will address my skin concerns. I have used the Clarisonic off and on for about 3 years, but I am only 14, so when I started using the clarisonic, my skin was naturally getting worse . I feel my skin is nice after I wash my face with the clarisonic but it doesn't do anything to it to help much. If i buy the Foreo Luna, which one should I get? My skin isn't super sensitive and I have a hard time telling if my skin is combination or oily, but i think its oily. It gets a little dry on the per meter of my cheeks and around my chin. Also in consideration, is the clinique Brush but I don't feel very strong about it. Any recommendations from people who have a similar skin type, have used this product, or have any other experience with a great cleansing brush! Thank You all! Spoiler (Highlight to read)
Sephora has been out of stock online and in the LA region for MONTHS, and now they have taken it off of the website. But.... it's available from YSL, at Nordstrom (online and in-store in LA), and at Bloomingdale's (online and in-store in LA). I have heard rumors that Sephora is discontinuing this shade... but what gives? This is the equivalent to a MAC NC35-40, which is a very popular shade. Can someone tell me what is going on?
Can anyone identify the lip gloss that Taylor Swift is wearing in her recent TIME magazine cover? I am dying for that color, but I can't find any info online about the products she wore in the photo. Thanks!
I would like to try some few products from Caudalie. My sister told me that it is a good brand. If you have used any of these products below, please give me your opinions. -Caudalie vinosource serum -Caudalie vinoperfect day fluid spt15 -Caudalie C15 detox oil My skin type is combination, and then to get dehydrated and congested. I also have uneven skintone.
Has anyone tried this? It's fairly new, and my local SiJCP raves about it and they sell out whenever they get some in. Tried to get one during the sale, but almost all the colors were sold out. Now N Medium is back in stock but trying to decide between N Medium and G Medium. TIA! http://www.sephora.com/blemish-treatment-concealer -P388701?keyword=COVER%20FX%20Blemish%20Treatment% ...
Hi, I just bought the tarte powder foundation. I didnt buy the airbuki brush with it because its quite expensive. Do you think my real techniques buffing will work well with the powder foundation? Thanks!!
Hi, I've been using make up for ever pro finish powder in shade 120 for almost 2 yrs! My local store doesn't have it in stock, but also I'm ready to try something else! I love this powder, but I just wanna venture out into the world... I was mac nc25 for a powder when I went there like four years ago too but I don't use their face powders anymore also, if there's any other powder you'd recommend, I use it over my dr jart bb cream to give me more coverage and set it. Thanks!!
