Hey BTers! I was wondering if anyone would be interested in local trades. That is, you could meet the person FTF with whom you'd be trading with and it would save shipping charge. It could be a win win! I have a few items I wanted to trade but find myself not on the trade thread because I'm not sure who the successful traders are, I am online primarily on my phone and creating and searching lists are not very easy (I did try when I missed out on the Maestro offer GA had and wanted to see if someone put it up for trade) and who am I kidding- I'm CHEAP when it comes to shipping So I was thinking if enough people are interested we could make this a thing. We could make it searchable by creating a format for our trades: ie " <major city> local area trade <item> " For example I am in the Dallas area. I currently have a few items I really won't use. I will list it out and specify on the comments. Hopefully I find a home for my items and maybe make a friend I'm not sure what guidelines we need yet so if many are interested we can come up with guidelines together.
Could anyone help me locate a good, reasonably priced dupe for Clinique's Up-Lighting Liquid Illuminator in the shade Bronze? My mom uses it, but it's been discontinued recently and she's trying to find a replacement for it. Any and all suggestions will be appreciated. Thanks!
Hey guys! I just recently washed a Morphe M527 goat hair brush (for the first time) and since I've washed it it literally smells like a goat---a barn. Help please! I don't know how to get the stench out!
It gets super hot and humid where I live and I'm out side a lot for 8+ hours. So i'm looking for a good primer, foundation and concealer. I currently use Estee Lauder double wear and I like it for the most part because it is full coverage and its so full coverage I dont even need a concealer with it and I find its the only foundation so far that has lasted the longest without sweating off. But the negative side is that it makes my skin patchy/cakey especially between my eyebrows and sides of my nose since I have kinda dry skin. So basically i'm looking for a long lasting that lasts at least 8+ hours or more in a sweat proof primer, foundation and concealer for dry skin.
On Thursday, June 23, I ordered four of the Ultra Matte Liquid Lipsticks from ColourPop. Looking at my account today, it says that it's been paid for, but the order remains unfulfilled. Having never purchased from ColourPop before, I was wondering if this was normal and if anyone else has experienced this. Thanks for any and all answers! :-)
I'm going crazy! I swear, no matter what mascara I use or eyelash curler, my eyelashes refuse to hold a curl. I've noticed that this has been happening for the past year. They use to hold a curl and look how I wanted them too, but not anymore. I've used heat on my curler, tried a few different curlers AND used waterproof mascara and they still refuse to stay curled for more than 5 seconds. My eyelashes now look straight and always clump together whenever I wiggle the mascara wand. I have even tried applying fake eyelashes a few times but I'm awful at it. Currently, I use a tweezerman & cover girl eyelash curler as well as the waterproof Maybelline Full 'N Soft mascara.
So, I've been looking for a foundation for oily skin. I tend to sweat from heat or what not very easily and haven't tried very much out there. I've been told about tint moisturizers, BB-CC Creams, minerals, but i can't seem to find one that looks the way I want it to on my face. I'm looking for something light, doesn't transfer too much, WATERPROOF??, and basically something that doesnt look like its there at all. I just need one for redness but don't want anything that make my oily skin more oily or crack. HELP! haha as you can already tell, im all over the place with what I'm looking for. Any guidance?? Thanks Beauty Queens.
I have a physical Beauty Insider Card that I use for in store purchases and I also do online shopping. (Because I love Sephore more than I love my cat...) And I was wondering if there's a way to combine the two? Thanks!
I have been hearing good things about the SK II online and from friends. However, I still have more than half left of my Sunday Riley bottles. Would it be okay to add in the SK II to my regimen? Or would it be too much for my skin and just wait till I finish SR?
The models in the Clinique Pep Start ads are all very, very young. Of course their skin care needs are quite different from those of someone like me (normal to dry, deep creases and large pores, 60 years old). Does this mean Pep Start products are targeted for teenagers?
I'm tryin to choose btw That Glow and Sun Dipped! I've seen a lot of diff reviews on how Sun Dipped or That Glow work on diff skin tones. I have a pretty medium skin tone with yellow undertones, and sometimes get tan/browner in the summer. I'd appreciate the help, thanks y'all!
MJ Coconut Primer + KatVonD Lock-It Foundation (liquid) + bareMinerals bareSkin Sheer Sun Serum Bronzer. Yyaaahhhss!! Wow, what a difference the damp beauty blender (just bought my first one) & the Marc Jacobs primer made! Barely used any Lock-It. Treated the blender like a cushion compact applicator & just kept patting. The Lock-It foundation applied in such a lovely thin, even layer. So natural looking (but still had coverage). I applied the bareSkin bronzer serum also with the blender (barely damp) as a true bronzer just where sun would hit. So, so pretty!! Loved it!! I did use a pat or two of KatVD Lock-It powder foundation over 2 small patches of melasma on my chin, and Guerlain Les Violettes pressed powder to set undereyes, and to barely add a finish very sheerly in t-zone.
I am currently a VIB member but with a different email I believe. I got some coupons once getting awarded the VIB status, but when I try to use the coupons online it doesn't let me use them because it says I haven't reached that status. I'm assuming my points aren't connected with my account, perhaps because it isn't the same email? But I logged on with my old email to see if I can use the points but it still says I can't. Can someone please help because these offers say they will expire a month after being awarded the VIB status and I really don't want to miss out on these deals.
I recently started using the Drunk Elephant Framboos Glycolic Night Serum, about a few weeks ago. And each time I use it, I notice I get these deep subsurface bumps on my jawline. itchy and pretty painful. Has anyone else experienced this with this product? I'm not sure if its an allergic reaction, or what. I figured my skin may be purging at first, but this does not hardly seem worth it for a product that was $100. Attaching a photo to show my areas of concern. No idea what it is!
I'm looking for a sunscreen that does not have any makeup in it. I'm going to be do laser hair treatments on my face so I can't have anything on my face but the sunscreen. I'm really pale and have super sensitive skin. I don't really go outside to much because how sensitive my skin is. I start to turn red within 10 minute's of being out side even with sunblock on. Any help would be appreciated.
Okay so I'm very new to make-up. I usually just wear walmart foundation and things like that. I wanted to start to get into it and do my make-up like those girls do on those videos on Facebook and Twitter. I was just wondering if someone could give me a list of everything i would need to buy including brushes and products. Thank you!
I reside in Ontario, Canada and we're experiencing humidity which means not wearing any foundation as not only will my skin feel congested but it'll end up dripping off my face so I'm wondering if it's ok to mix a matte liquid bronzer (i.e. Benefit Dew the Hoola) with my moisturizer. Are there any Canadians out there who also can't wear foundation due to the humidity?
Hey Beauties! I'm looking for a medium to full coverage radiant, dewy or satin foundation that is good for every skin ( I used finish an acne procedure so It has be for a normal foundation), non oily since I live in an island so the heat brings up the oil and non heavy. Any suggestions?
