So pretty. Too bad about the Sleek palette's blendability, but it turned into a beautiful mistake. Also, your lips look extra plump here. :) see post
30 day lipstick challenge
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....   Spoiler (Highlight to read) Day 1, 11/10/14 - Maybelline Vivids in Vivid Rose.

Spring 2015 Collections
So I've seen a couple of threads for specific Spring 2015 launches (MUFE 50 Shades, Nars, etc). I thought it would be cool to post any and all new collection releases/launches in the same thread. I was searching around trying to find the newest stuff and scout out my next purchases. Here's what I've found so far:   Dior Spring 2015 - Kingdom of Colors (Images from A Bit Of Blusher)     Guerlain Spring 2015 (Images from Rouge Deluxe) Isn't this collection so cute?!?!

Help! I'm looking for a good product to get rid of Keratosis Pilaris on my face!
I have keratosis pilaris on my arms and I've found something to take care of that. However, I have it on my forehead and have no idea how to get rid of it! My skin is relatively dry, acne-free with the occasional whitehead, and somewhat sensitive (it gets red easily). I worked for a company for 2 years that sells skincare so I have a decent amount of knowledge on skincare, but I still haven't found anything good for the KP on my face. Help please? I don't really have a price range.   Thanks!

Eyeshadow Palette Challenge
Much in the thread of Greenchili's Lipstick Challenge and Meg's Blush Challenge, I've decided to take on my own personal palette challenge!  When I looked into my palette box today to pick out a look, I was overwhelmed with choice and finally made my selection based on "well, I haven't worn that for awhile."    I've got lots of beauties that are completely neglected, and I'd like to stop that immediately.  Please feel free to join me for your total collection, 30 days, or however long you'd like. It's cold outside, so why not break up the monotony of winter by mixing it up?   Day 1, 1/18/15: Tom Ford Eye Color Quad in 03 Nude Dip (used 3 lightest to balance out my accidental clown cheeks) Day 2, 1/19/15: Tarina Tarantino Jewel Shadow Palette in Diamond Dusk (used 4 of 5 shades) Day 3, 1/20/15: Tarina Taraninto Jewel Shadow Palette in Magical Day 4, 1/21/15: Tom Ford Ombre Eye Color 02 She Wolf Day 5, 1/22/15: Burberry Complete Eye Palette 15 Sage Green Day 6, 1/23/15: Urban Decay Pulp Fiction Palette Day 7, 1/24/15: Burberry Complete Eye Palette 10 Rose Pink Day 8, 1/25/15: MAC Stowaways Quad

New skin care routine dried out my skin, advice? (please help!)
My old skin care routine was not helping me with any of my skin problems. I think I am combination skin. My skin is normally dry in certain spots, but a few spots tend to be a bit oilier. I also have quite a bit of redness. My skin is also sensitive. Since my old skincare routine was not helping I decided to go into Sephora to change it up.   When I did end up going I purchased the following:   GlamGlow- Thirstycleanse Daily Treatment Cleanser Lancôme- Eau Fraiche Douceur Sephora- express cleansing and exfoliating wipes Sephora- instant moisturizer First Aid- ultra repair cream   For the first night I used Lancôme, Glamglow, and first aid ultra repair cream (in that order). I then used lancome and the Sephora moisturizer in the morning, everything seemed to be fine so far.   The second night I did the same routine as the night before, but also used an exfoliating wipe, the next morning I did the same as the morning before, but noticed a bit of a burning sensation but thought nothing of it. Then the next night did the same routine as the first night still feeling the burning sensation, but still thought nothing of it.  I then woke up the next morning using the same morning routine and realized there were dry patches in places that I don't normally have dry patches, and my face was burning again. I put on makeup, and my skin burned for the rest of the day.   Thinking that it could possibly be the Lancôme product I did not use it at night or in the morning, the burning has gone away, but my skin is still really dry and is quite noticeable with make up and the dryness has spread to larger areas of my face. BTW I am still using the Glamglow product and the First aid ultra repair cream.   Sorry for the long explanation, but I am hoping with details someone will be able to help me out.   Now, my question is how can I tell which product caused this irritation to occur now that it will take a bit for my skin to heal itself? Does anyone has similar skin (or have had similar problems with any of these products) that could make recommendations for which products I should be using instead of the ones I have listed above.   Any advice will be great, thanks!

Foundation hack that Changed my life. Powder before Foundation.
I saw this on YouTube and it really did work. It's kind of weird though. Using loose powder before applying your liquid foundation. What you do is put on your moisturizer and.or primer as usual then you powder your face with loose powder, not pressed powder in a compact. It can be loose powder such as Nars Loose Setting Powder or even one that has color to it like Urban Decay Ultra Definition Loose Powder which is what I use. So you powder your face then apply your liquid foundation or BB cream. The powder gives the liquid something to stick to and holds your skin care in place underneath the foundation. I found that I use less foundation this way also. After the foundation you only need to powder again in you T zone. My foundation stays in place and doesn't slip and slide. Even not coming off so easily on shirts. I love this hack, it may not work for everyone but it's worth a try. Good luck!

Are you "trialing" a new product ? Want to talk about it ?
trying new products can be...overwhelming. do you love a product because it works ? can you tell right away if it's performing the way you want it to ? sometimes i'm so happy to finally try something and let my enthusiasm blind my  actual  impression of it (at least at first )   it takes time to come to proper conclusions ! particularly when it comes to skincare, but makeup too.   so here's a thread where we can discuss our experiences while trying a product  for a first time. it can also be a place that people can reference if they're considering a new product.   right now i'm trying a sample of the REN v-cense night cream. i've only used it for 2 nights so far, but i LOVE IT. i love it so much i'm tempted to go ahead and grab it up, but i need to make sure it doesn't break me out over time (it contains shea butter which *can* be a breakout trigger for me, but not necessarily). it smells of frankincense which i adore, but i know for some people would be a turn off.   i'm also checking out the VICHY aqualia thermal serum. i really love the CAUDALIE vinosource s.o.s. thirst quenching serum, and prefer the texture of it to the VICHY, but think the caudalie may break me out slightly (i also was probably overusing it...i was very enthusiastic). so i'm just trying to figure out which i prefer.   how about you ?

Jan 2015 TSB (closed)
Once I get the box back I'll pick out some items and donate the remaining items to a local organization that takes and redistributes new and used makeup/beauty items to women in need. I've given beauty products to this organization before and they're really good.   * Please make sure every item is in a plastic ziplock bag to prevent spills.   * Any larger items (full-size perfume, larger body care, larger skincare, large palettes) * Must* be proposed first before adding to your trade. If the next 2-3 people arent interested, please switch that item out.  * The box needs to stay USPS medium or large rate. If you can't fit it, swap out a larger item to make room.     Don't ■ Don't keep the box for more than two days. Keep it moving! If you are traveling or a special circumstance comes up, we can work to rearrange things. (Also you MUST include a tracking number)  ■ Don't put unsanitary items of any sort into the TSB.  ■ Don't put any drugstore items into the TSB. ■ No reserve items in the box for others, and don’t ask to have any items reserved for you. This is unfair to others participating. ■ Don't swatch items from the box. This is a hygienic precaution that we must take, as a lot of people will be handling these items. ■ Don't take more than what you put in. Please trade at or above each item’s retail value. Price everything out.   Do ♥ Please contribute high-end beauty products only. No drugstore items. If you have questions or you are unsure of an item, ask! ♥ Unused, swatched or lightly used products are perfectly acceptable. Well-loved items are not (unless explicitly requested by the next person or there has been a posted picture and someone requested that item). Again, if you’re unsure, ask! ♥ Swatched/used items must be labeled as such. Label only on this thread not on actual item. ♥ All opened items must be cleaned/sanitized prior to their addition to the box. ♥ Send your address to the person above you in a PM. ♥ Package things carefully! Try to leave the TSB in better condition than you found it ♥ Please seal any items that could leak/spill/make a mess accordingly. ♥ Please post a photo and your proposed trade before shipping the box. That way members can weigh in on the trade.     Allowed: ☆ Fragrance (be sure to package bottles properly!) ☆Nail polish (again, be careful!)   Not allowed: ☆Pre-made samples ☆ NO used/swatched lip wands (the kind you dunk the wand in or things like stila lipglaze) ☆Heavily used items ☆ Drugstore items ☆Questionable items (always ask if you have doubts!)   Make sure total of what you put in is equal or above what you put out.   Also, please pick up a large priority box at the post office prior to receiving the box. This is so we can streamline things (get the box to everyone faster in case the box breaks or there's a spill).    roxystar ------>  USPS Tracking  9405509699938106322064 1.

Full coverage
I have oily skin so everything seems to look blotchy. I have tried Kat Von D and loved it but it was photo sensitive so everytime I took a pic i looked very pale. I also tried Urban Decay Skin and it didnt give the full coverage like I had expected. Any other suggestions for full coverage that will not look blotchy and isnt photo sensitive??

Anastasia Beverly Hills liquid lipstick
Seems like liquid matte lipsticks are huge right now and Anastasia is joining the club with a collection of 20 shades, launching Jan 7th on her website and on Macys.com $20 each.   Here are the swatches for your viewing pleasure   I think the colors are gorgeous and there are at least three shades I know I will be buying.     What do you think?       EDIT: I basically stalked Norvina (Anastasia's daughter) because she's been wearing those lippies and testing them for I while and I got you some pictures so you can see how gorgeous these actually look... which might be not a good thing for us.    Pure Hollywood   Potion   Baby pink Vamp  Sad girl   American doll   Lovely   Vintage   Spicy

HOW CAN I GET THE MILKY WHITE COMPLEXION THAT I SEE MANY WOMEN SPORT?
I am trying to find out how I may attain the "milky white complexion" that many women sport. Is there a cream that I can use to get that complexion. I have heard the term BB cream being mentionned, so I went out and purchased it but found that it didn't work. In addition, apparently women rub this on their body too to achieve the full body milky white complexion. Thanks.

Subscription box photo sharing
I've been on the Ipsy waiting list, but still look at the thread. I thought we could have a shared thread from all the subscription boxes (including non-beauty ones likes underpants and lifestyle such as Wantable and POPSugar). That way we can live vicariously through each others goodies!   (I know there are unboxing videos on YouTube, but I do not have the patience to sit through a five minute video about someone apologizing for the state of their hair. And I know there are blogs where I can see photos, but everyone usually gets different items in their boxes)

Rosebud Salve? What lip balms do you use?
So I bought a tube of Rosebud Salve a couple months ago when I was looking for a good lip balm, but I kind of wrote it off after trying it because I didn't like the texture, it felt runny.  But I don't feel like I'm really getting good results with the lip balm I've been using, so I pulled it out again a few minutes ago (I'm having trouble sleeping and am a little bored) and it doesn't feel anything like I remember and I noticed the slight rose scent for the first time.  Why did I write this off so quickly?  I'm going to give it another go.  What kind of lip balm do you use?
