Hello there, my pretties! Are we ready for spring yet? I am not necessarily ready for sun ( ), but I know I'm ready to bust out some bright colors and create my own spring magic. Rules are - there are no rules. ( Except - you must have fun! That's obligatory! ) We do feel like brights and pastels during the spring most of the time, but you do whatever you feel like doing. You do you! Try to go through your stash, and introduce us to a new pretty each day. If brights are not your cup of tea, this challenge is an excellent way to try to, well - challenge yourself. But, they are not a must. We are planning on doing this all spring long! Please, feel free to stop by whenever. So... Keep calm and put your lipstick on!

I have seen many threads about dry shampoos and which are best for different scalp and hair type, but haven't found anything regarding thin, color treated, especially red hair. If anyone has a recommendation I would love to hear it, including pointing me to an earlier conversation a missed. Thanks for your time.
Is anyone else having this issue? I apply my moisturizer and wait til its soaked in and i then apply Benefit's porefessional only on the t-zone and around my cheeks where I have more visible pores.. I use other primers for the rest of my face. My foundation goes on seamlessly but when I go in with concealer (usually Tarte Shape Tape) and I start to blend it out, my foundation starts to move around and come off!! I have waited for my foundation to dry and I still have the same problem... I always have to go in with more foundation to fix it! Does anyone else have this problem? I've tried using the Nars Creamy concealer to see if it was just the Shape tape causing the issue but the same thing happened.. I started to think maybe it was my beauty blender causing the problem but I never had this problem until I started using the Porefessional primer.
Currently trying to decide between the Naked2 Basics palette and Becca Ombre Nudes palette. I have the Tartlette Clay Matte eyeshadow palette and find it difficult to travel with. I also find the colors to be somewhat hard to blend out and work with. Which palette do you think would be the best everyday palette for me?
I bought one of their 4-pan "build your own" palettes and I'm trying to create a palette for daily use. I looked through Sephora and UD site and they don't seem to have a matte dark brown shade. It's kind of surprising that they don't have this color. =O I have hit the pan in my "Pulp Fiction" palette. This palette is basically my holy grail for the "brown/natural" eye look. I bought "Secret Service" as the medium brown lid color and I'm looking for a matte dark brown (an exact match or something similar to the color "Vengeance") to use as a crease color. I don't want to use black because that is too dark for daytime/daily use. They seem to have a whole lot of midtone browns in their current lineup, but a lack of dark browns. Did I overlook something or does UD really not have this color?
I received a sample of Lancome's Bienfait Teinté BB Cream (in shade 1/Porcelaine) and returned to the store a week later to buy it - only to find it's not carried there anymore! I also see that it's out of stock online. Will Sephora restock this item or are they phasing it out?
BECCA Shimmering Skin Perfector came with a christmas skin giftset. I just used it for the first time yesterday. First, I thought it smelled terrible. Second, it didn't feel so good going on. Third, it made my skin red, splochy, and my pores huge. Clearly, I had some reaction to it. I do have sensitive skin, but not overly terribly so. Anyone else have the same problem? What in the product might be causing the reaction?
Am I the only one who can't stand Tarte Shape Tape? UGH it is so drying for me, and I have purchased two tubes of it now on two different occasions because I have been so convinced by all the raving (especially from girls with dry skin) that I should love it. Alas, I am in search of a good long-lasting, full coverage, yet hydrating concealer for the under eyes. I have tried and am not a fan of Nars Radiant Creamy Concealer or Urban Decay Naked Skin. However, I am open to any other suggestions! Thanks!
I am very greatful to be chosen by Sephora and Marc Jacob's beauty to receive the gratis of Marc Jacob's new Matte Highliner Gel Eye Crayon Eyeliners . I receive colors (Earth)quake a beautiful brown and (Grape) vine a beautiful purple shade. Texture of these liners is very smooth and creamy and they glide easily on skin. I rubbed the swatches 1 minute after wearing But liners were completely dry and they didn't smudge at all. They stay put when I run water on the wrist and just slightly faded when washed with hand soap, three minutes after wearing. In short apparently they live up to all the claims. I'll try them on soon and will share the eye looks later. For now here are the swatches. Top: Fresh Swatches Bottom: After washing with soap and warm water Thank you Sephora and MarcJacob's beauty!
Hello Ladies and Gentlemen, When it comes to makeup, my eyes are the most problematic. Now before I go any further, I do not like heavy makeup. I like the natural look and feel. But my eyes have a lot of veins showing aka dark circles. It's genetic. I am in need of some good recommendations for products: eye primer, concealer, color corrector and etc. Currently my routine consists of an eye cream: finishing my Fresh Black Tea Eye cream. I liked it but I am not sure if it is the best at moisturizing. Then after the moisturizer, I would sometimes put some eye primer samples I got from Play! but usually I just go straight for Naked Peach color corrector. Any help is most welcome!
We're blabbing about everything else these days, I figured I'd check in and see what people are watching when it comes to TV shows and movies! It would be foolish to think that this thread could remain spoiler free, so let's be courteous to one another and be sure to spoiler your spoilers. If you don't know how, it's that super adorable little yellow button on the toolbar, located to the right of the bold/italic/underline/strikeout buttons. DONT FORGET: If you happen to be the most recent post, your first sentence or two of your post will show up EVEN IF ITS IN A SPOILER. So please take care if you're going to go dropping spoiler bombs. Anywho... I just saw the movie PHOENIX last night and it was absolutely spectacular. Like Academy Award spectacular. If you're fortunate enough have showings in your area, I cannot urge you enough to go see it. So whatcha'll watchin' these days? What are you anxiously waiting for to start back up?
So I have Tarte Lights Camera Lashes Precision Eyeliner in Black, Kat Von D tattoo liner, and MAC powerpoint eye pencil in "engraved". So all three of these black eyeliners go on well but they look so bad after a couple of hours. Either they remain on one lid only, or they end up one inch higher than they were placed originally or they flake off in parts. Any suggestions as I received these as gifts, do not have the box or receipt and don't want them to go to waste. Thank you in advance!!
I'm thinking of buying this foundation based on a recommendation but it's pricey so I wanna get as many testimonials as I can, so for anyone who has used this foundation: have you found any problems with transferring, settling, creasing or cakey-ness?
Hi! I am currently 23 years old and have suffered from acne my whole life. I have recently been using Proactiv+ but stopped because it wasn't having a great affect on my acne or skin. I started to use Peter Thomas Roth Max Complexion Correcting pads along with Dermalogica Medibac face wash and a toner. My face cleared up somewhat well but now I have these little tiny bumps/breakouts all over my face. I never used to get those, and rather I would get bigger acne bumps. Should I switch to using another skin care product? Does anyone have any ideas? PLEASE HELP!
I have been wanting to get the Make Up Forever Matte Velvet Foundation and the Tarte Rainforest of the Sea Foundation but I don't know what shades to get. My old foundation are Smashbox Studio Skin in 0.5 and Clinique Superbalanced Silk in 01 Silk Porcelain. I have a hectic and busy life right now and I don't have time to go in store and get shade matched. Please Help!!!!
Since the ole Henriksen aloe Vera deep cleanser has been discontinued *tears* i am looking for a new cleanser to use both in the morning and at night. I have normal to combo skin - my skin can be oily on some days and dry on others - i get these bumps on my face i'm not even sure what they are and i have large pores. I want a deep clean! Any recommendations?!
If you're on BeautyTalk, you're probably well-aware of the nude lip trend and may even own a handful (or three) of these shades. While I love the trend, I still can't seem to find my "perfect nude" so I am very excited to start talking more broadly about UnNudes! UnNude lip shades offer a spectrum from standard nude shades to more bold, neutral shades. These are the mauvy brown, deep chocolate, rose-goldy-earth toned neutral shades and they come in a variety of finishes (matte, metallic, creamy and shiny).
Here's the challenge: rock an UnNude lip look between Monday, February 6th- Tuesday, February 28th. No requirement on how often to post but I'm going to try for every weekday!
Keep in mind, this challenge overlaps Valentine's Day so I am also challenging you to change it up by wearing a bold neutral instead of the typical red. (Hint: red is not an UnNude!)
Check the spoiler for examples of some of UnNude shades. Can't wait to see your take on neutral lips!
Spoiler (Highlight to read)
EDIT: I have changed the timing. This challenge will run through the end of February so keep the UnNude looks coming!
second question of the day How do you set foundation? I've heard of baking and I know the LM one is good but im thinking about trying the airspun drugstore powder first option 2: but if I don't need to bake what do I do? I was thinking about trying the NARS light reflecting pressed setting powder or do I try a colored pressed powder? I really need advice.
I've been reading reviews on Kat Von D's foundation & to me it seems that it would cover my 8 inch heart surgery. If it has the full coverage to cover serious acne scars then it should cover the scar on my chest. I have pale skin. Does anyone else think so?
I have had Co2 laser for my wrinkles. And now use Microneedling at home to keep the collagen production. What serums (for use right after) or heave moisturizers ( a few hours later) have other seem help with? I just started iwth a copper pepitide with apple stem cell to help with collagen growht. Anything else? I also heard after the serum an hour or so after you should have strong anti-aging moisturizer.
