Hi, I am 28 (almost 29) years old, with dry skin (but not peeling). So far I have used the Clinique Dramatically Different Moisturizer and the Clinique All about eyes cream, and I am not impressed. I need something that moisturizes better, but is more natural, with less harsh ingredients. I am looking for a moisturizer and an eye cream. Possibly a face wash suggestion as well (I have used Clinique and Origins "Check and Balances" and both are super drying). I was looking at Tarte's Maracuja Oil, but not sure if it is right for my. And will it be enough instead an eye cream, or I need more? Just to mentioned, my skin is not that sensitive, have a little fine lines around my eyes, no acne. Thanks
I was wondered about this when I went to JC Penny to get my friend a make over. I was waited for her, I saw they have pink and purple beauty blender on the makeup station. While I was holing it, I realized the pink is smaller than the Purple one. I bought one in Pink color, when they said keep the box for air dry the beauty blender. Every time, I tried to put the BB on top on the box come with it. my bb could not stand up for air dry.
I know many ladies love their storage set up. I love the makeup P.orn (collection videos) I have noticed that many ladies have the ikea drawers or desks. While I like the set up of those I have only come across one lady on YT (I know there are probably more) with a colorful make up storage system. This YTer actually used colorful TOOLBOXES you can get online and at Sears. It's a really cute and colorful idea. I'm not sure I'm allowed to post a link. Any of you ladies have pics of your colorful storage ideas? Please share them.
In case you wanted to purchase one of them, they are 10% off at Nordstroms. $35 each. I wish I waited, LOL! They also have some Nars blushes on sale for $27... The Radiant concealer for $26, the Velvet Matte pencil for $22.50 and the Duo Shadows for $31.50! And if you were looking for anything from the Nars High Seize collection like the Multiple Na Pali Coast, those are 40% off.
I had to show you all my new storage system... It's from Hobby Lobby's furniture section. It is intended to be storage for 12x12 scrapbook paper. The bottom two drawers are about 6 inches thick for some of my bigger items. The rest of the drawers are about 2 inches, which is the perfect size. Each drawer holds its own set of products: foundations/powders, eyes, lips, lotions/serums, tools like tweezers/brushes, etc. The full price of the unit is $199 but one can use a 40% coupon so it is then $120.00. It's black, with some brown distressing, and the best part, it's on casters! It is about 42" tall. I actually have one for my scrapbooking room and one day I realized how perfect it would be for makeup. Sitting on top of the unit is a square tray where I keep my perfumes. You can't see those from the picture because all my recent purchases and samples are piled up!
Has anyone tried this perfume? I saw it in Sephora's list of best sellers and saw that it's out of stock right now, but I've never heard of it. From the description, it sounds lovely. I usually rotate between these perfumes: Burberry Summer, Marc Jacobs Daisy eau so Fresh, Armani's Acqua di Gioia, Prince Harvey's Hello, and Folle de Joie eau de parfum. (I have a bit of a perfume obsession.) If you're familiar with (any of) these scents, could you advise whether I should consider getting Beach Walk? Thanks!
I used bare minerals for many years and loved it. But now that I am nearing 50 it seems to be/look drying. I've been using LM silk cream foundation and LM Tinted moisturizer. I've just been hearing great things about IT foundation especially after reading the anti-aging ingredients! Anyone used it? Advice? Celebration Foundation Illumination : Formulated with Hydrolyzed Collagen, Peptides, Anti-Oxidants and Drops of Light™ Technology for the ultimate, soft, candlelit glow complexion. This full coverage foundation is infused with key ingredients such as Niacin, Hyaluronic Acid, Rose, Silk and Aloe that help to leave skin fresh and hydrated, never dry or cakey!
Its hard to believe that 90~95% of this brush's reviews are 5 star "amazing, wow, etc" I went to SDM to look for Dior's flat foundation brush and the lady looked at me as if I'm crazy in preferring the flat version of foundation brushes.. but I have dry skin and its very easy for buffing brushes to accentuate the flakiness and dryness more but anyway, has anyone tried this brush and liked it? how do you use it? do you like it better than buffing or flat foundation brushes?

Hello! I have combination skin (super oily on the ''T'' zone and super dry on the chin and cheeks). I wanted to know which everyday routine do you guys recommend to have a fresh and natural looking ! (foundation, concealer and setting powder). Thank you.
When you're getting out of the pool or just came back from a day at the beach your hair isn't always the prettiest. Here are my top product to keep your hair beautiful after you finish swimming: 1. Alterna Bamboo Smooth Kendi Dry Oil This product adds moisture and softness to your hair when the chemicals have dried your hair out 2. Bumble and Bumble surf foam shampoo and conditioner gives your hair nice beachy waves when its really flat 3. Wen replenishing treatment mist This product restores your hair after all of the salt and chemicals 4. Drybar detox dry shampoo This product just makes your hair feel clean again 5. Bumble and Bumble surf spray This product gives you great waves and covers up the dry flat hair that the beach gave you
Okay, so I think I've found the PERFECT mascara combo ever! First, I curl my lashes. Then, I apply a coat of BareMinerals Flawless Defintion Mascara. After that, I layer a few coats of BareMinerals Lash Domination Mascara! I usually line my top lid with Stila's liquid eyeliner and use BareMineral's Lasting Line eyeliner on the outer corner of my waterline!
I just noticed online that there are a couple new Dr. Jart+ BB creams. I'm kind of interested in the BB Radiance Beauty Balm. http://www.sephora.com/bb-radiance-beauty-balm-P38 6117?skuId=1603802 It says it isn't in any stores around me, maybe it isn't out yet except online? I'm hoping to see swatches sometime or see the color IQ number. I really like the Black Label Detox BB, but I need to make sure this will work with my coloring too. Has anyone heard about it or tried it?
Okay so basically I need new.... well everything! I would love to save as much money as possible but I'd rather spend for something really worth it then get a crummy cheap product. I've found that products with a pH of 5- 6.5 work best for me. The lowest I'll go is 4.5 I would like to know the actual pH and not that it's "balanced" I'm not even sure what that means normally that would mean a oH of 7 and and I've heard your skin is between 4.5-6.5 it's just a tad acidic. Secondly I don't want anything that soaps foams has coco butter or mineral oil natural oils are okay though again depending on pH level also nothing with a lot of alcohol in it I would prefer no alcohol but if it's a very small amount (one of the last ingredients) then it's okay My skin is acne prone and quite sensitive i would want a very gentle cleanser that won't strip skin of oil but I don't want any products that treat acne just ones that won't cause it. Thank you if you can give me suggestions that meet all these needs I need - cleanser - toner - moisturizer - make up remover - primer (preferably that makes skin glow) - translucent powder(talc free) - Foundation or bb or cc that's sheer to medium looks like skin and gives you glowy radiant skin - concealer for blemishes (must be matte very important that it won't break me out more - liquid undereye concealer that brightens - undereye primer (umm tell me what they do) - matte bronzer (talc free, bronzer breaks me out and I think it's the talc maybe) - blush (talc free) - highlighter Very important that they won't break me out and that they are the right pH and everything else on my list above. Thank you thank you thank you! I know it's a lot.
Hello lovely BTs, I am really getting into this powder. It's just so lovely. I'm wondering who else is using this and how you are applying it. What brush do you use? What technique works for you? I'm using a kabuki brush and applying it by patting it on first and then sweeping the brush over my face. http://www.sephora.com/product/productDetail.jsp?k eyword=STILA%20Set%20%26%20Illuminate%20Baked%20Po ...
