Hi! So it's my first time posting here and I'm looking for an eyeliner I can use on my waterline and also lower lash line. I'm new to eyeliner but have really been loving looks with a pop of color on the waterline and also lower lash line. I love make up forever so I thought about trying their new Aqua xl liners but I have seen some good reviews for the urban decay 24/7, Marc highliner, and the nars larger than life as well. Any thoughts would be greatly appreciated!
I have the Ciate Geltox kit and I'm running low on the cleanser, and I can't seem to find another one that works. I've tried the Formula X cleanser but this stripped the colour off my nails because of the alcohol. I need a cleanser with absolutely no alcohol in it, any suggestions?
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!
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.
Hi, my elder sister has a plan to undergo facelift surgery in Dr. Omar Fouda Neel's clinic in Montreal. The problem is that none of our friends or relatives have undergone one before so we are quite unknown about how the procedure would be like, how long would be the recovery time etc. I wish if I could get her some more useful information regarding facelift surgery. Is there any other procedure that should be considered along with facelift to get a better result? Do you guys have any alternative option to suggest?
Does anyone know a similar site? Reviews made by experts and with more brands? I feel that Paula's choice is not updated and there so many brands that are missing... Any ideas? I do love Paula's choice reviews, more o less they give you a professional overview of the product, and so much info about ingredients. Help! Have a great day everyone! XX
I have wavy hair that is cury around my face and the nape of my neck, my hair is also extremely fine and prone to breakage. Use a lot of heat to deal with the unruliness does anyone have any advice for shampoo conditioner and styling products?
I'm a NW25 in MAC concealers and was recently matched to Light Warm in Urban Decay Naked Skin? Is this correct? If not is there anything I can do with it? Like contouring or something? If its that light. I don't know.
Hi! These past couple of months I have been using cheaper makeup brands. Now, my skin is starting to react badly to them. I don't break out, but my skin feels like it is burning. I am looking for face products like foundation, concealer, color correctors, and powders (translucent/setting powder and regular face powder). Brands, tips, and any other helpful advice are very much appreciated. Thank you!
Hey guys! so i was looking into these pallet's and I really like them both. I do like Becca's highlighters, but i haven't really used their blushes. Can anyone do a pros vs cons for these two pallet's for me?
I have a $50.00 Gift Card (Canadian) and want to try to get a couple of things out of it. I am going to be asking a friend who is dropping in the City this weekend and I will be giving her an extra $20.00 so let's say $70.00 in total I have. The Sephora in the City which is like 2-3 hours away from me doesn't usually carry a lot of the stuff I want. Which is why I have to always create a list. I created a list of some stuff I want to get that I have been wanting to try in forever basically. But wondering if there is anything else worth spending money on... This is what I have so far: 1. ABH Brow Wiz 2. ABH Brow Gel 3. ABH Brush #20 (this is a maybe) 4. MUFE Aqua XL Eye Pencil in Matte Pastel Blue 5. NARS Radiant Concealer Any other suggestions?
I have a MUFE Aqua XL eyeliner and whenever I try to sharpen it, the tip breaks off in the sharpener. 1) It's a new sharpener, so the blade isn't dull. 2) I've tried putting it in the freezer before sharpening and that didn't help. Does any one have ideas on how to prevent it from breaking off? Thanks!
Hello all! I've been gone for awhile but I of course severely went through BT withdrawal! So before I post my general question to the group, I need to reference these two recent incidents I experienced.: 1. The Sephora SA doing my makeover suggested I start using night cream for my eyes. Hello!!! I'm only 36 years old, I have never really taken care of my face except for a ever so needed makeup wipe at the end of the day. Her advice was like brick to my face. 2. After getting a recent facial my t-zone was a dry crumply mess. (btw, never happened before) It not only hurt but my face was bright red. So with that being said, I have adopted using the products below per suggestions for others. And it got me to thinking. I would love to know your routines! Please post your morning and/or evening routines with pics if possible. I will heart everyone's first post to this thread so we can hopefully get the discussion going. Can' wait to hear what all of you have to share! My bedtime skincare routine:
Hello! I checked out Hourglass after some suggestions here. In short, I love it! But my color match ended up tricky. I did Color IQ in store and came out 1y05 or 6. Some 06 looked slightly bit dark right now, but most everything in this range was a nice match. Except the Hourglass Nude 1.5 Veil, which had the finish and coverage I liked the most, but when trying it at home it kept getting unnaturally peachy for me, almost orange. I recently read that some vitamin c serums can cause color changes in foundation or BB cream. Does anyone have an experience with that? I'm wondering if the store makeover was so good because the serum was cleansed away before priming etc. Or does this brand oxidize a good bit, and I should adjust for that with a lighter shade? I know I can add a lighter powder to fix it, but I don't want to because it alters the dewy finish I love about this foundation. I do have some alternatives in Josie M's Vibrancy and Shiseido, but I'd like to know if I could make this work. Thanks!!
I absolutely love the online beauty reservation module for booking makeovers, however only TWO of my local stores are on there. Sephora Park Royal - ONLINE Sephora Pacific Center - ONLINE Sephora Metropolis - MISSING Sephora Coquitlam - MISSING Sephora Robson - MISSING Sephora Guildford - MISSING Sephora Abbotsford - MISSING When are these Sephoras going to get with the program? They are IMPOSSIBLE to book at through old-school means, you are lucky when they answer the phone, and they are always so scattered when you try and ask for dates. PLEASE GET THESE STORES ON THE RESERVATION PROGRAM ASAP!
Hi.. It shows that the Josie Maran tinted moisturizer is out of stock and I am needing one that is as good as that one..Not sure if it will come back in stock soon? I have tried Tarte and it dried my skin out. I use the Fair 1 color for JM and have dry skin.. Any suggestions?
So we just recently did a full video review and demo of all 4 palettes in Anastasia's Cream Contour Cream Kit in Fair, Light, Medium, and Deep kit. We showcased it on 4 of us girls with different skin tones, so you can really get a sense which palette will work for your own skin tone. This is totally a newer reformulated version Cream Contour Kit than she first launched last year. I love it because it gives the skin a very soft sculpted glowy look to your skin! Let us know what you think or if you have any questions on the kits!
Love this product! Would purchase for the brush itself. At first I was worried you would be able to see the difference between the pencil and my eyebrows, but it is so natural and long lasting. Definitely recommend!
Hi I am 33 years old and am looking for a great ant-aging serum that is safe to use throughout pregnancy and breast feeding. I have started to see fine lines, dark spots, and enlarged pores so I need help. Any advice/feedback is greatly appreciated!
Hi! I'm looking for a blush that is a similar shade to Sephora's rose petal no. 08. I believe rose petal has been discontinued so even if it is a different brand if anyone knows of a product similar I'd appreciate it. Thanks!
Hi guys, I recently purchased the Eve Lom oil free radiance foundation. I love the color, staying power and the way it makes my skin feel but I have the hardest time applying it. It's on the thicker side and doesn't spread that well. I try to work in smaller sections and apply thinly but I find it looks weird and patchy in certain parts of my face. Every once in a while I manage to apply it perfectly and it looks great but I haven't been able to figure out what the difference is. I use the hourglass primer and always do it after proper skincare. I also find that putting on powder afterwards sometimes sets it nicely and other times creates almost a weird marbled pattern on my phase. Anyone here with this foundation and tips on applying? I've tried brush, beauty blender, fingers, you name it. Thoughts?
