Hello pretty ladies, Back with another question to see what all you wonderful minds have to suggest. I really like using gel liners because i find it gives me the most natural look - but no matter how I apply it, it smudges all under my eye and on the corners despite the fact not using much If I tightline my eyes with a gel liner it's a no no and smudges within MINUTES!! I have oily lids so things easily move around - with my stila liquid liner it stay puts all day but sometimes I find it is just a bit too much for an everyday thing. I've tried gel liners from tarte, bobbi brown, smash box and god knows what and none of them worked - I've been using a Korean brand which has proven to have better "smudge proof" quality. I still want to know more options. I know probably a pencil option may be good - so any suggestions? Stila? Urban Decay? How do I get my gel liners not to travel down to my lower lid and smudge all over my under eye area and the corners of my eyes!!! It's driving me nuts.
I have recently been reading an article that said wearing blue eyeshadow makes you look like a clown so NEVER wear blue eye shadow. So no blue eye shadow at ALL! Well I highly disagree with this. Blue is a graceful color. If you wear it and put it on right it won't make you look like a clown! I wear blue eyeshadow when its night time.
Hi, I need a good recommendation for a powder highlighter. I have only used cream or stick highlighter/luminizers, and need to switch to a powder form. I use quite a bit of foundation and concealer to achieve "perfect" skin and it seems like my current highlighters don't layer well over foundations. I have medium-to-light skin that is yellow/olive toned I'd like something that is slightly shimmery. Thank you!
Hello all, I know we have lots of threads about vanities however I want to specifically address the Malm Dressing table for being used as a vanity. I went through all the threads and fell in love with it and thought perfect. Good price, I can get a mirror however big or style I want to go with it and change it up more so than pre built ones. However, I went in store today to go check it out and I found it to be very thin. Not as wide as I had pictured it. So I am wondering is that an issue for anyone, did anyone think this and buy it and realize it was fine? Has anyone taken theirs back? Has anyone had this one and upgraded or switched and in love with it over the malm? Is it being longer in length make up for it? Basically anything you can tell me would be helpful. Thank you!
Poll time, guys and dolls! I am curious how often each of you wash your hair. Also... do you prefer washing it in the am before work, or in the pm before bed? I am NOT a morning person, so I definitely am an evening hair washer, and do so every 2-3 days, depending on certain factors. Ok, I want your feedback as well... and, GO!!!
Clarisonics are NOT the best for a college student's budget. I'm just wondering, how often do you use a Clarisonic? I think Konjac is kinda cool with the exfoliation and baked in clays. Not sure which one I should pick.

Whenever I've tried to visit the Sephora website in the past 2 days, the only function that works is BeautyTalk. I cannot access any product pages or the sale section. When I try to do so, the site hangs forever. Are there any known issues with the site right now?
My prom is about a month away, and I want to create those beautiful, vintage finger waves. I have a good amount of experience with vintage hairstyles (mostly 1950's and 1960's dos) but I've never worked with gel or creme, and I need to use some sort of product to hold my wet hair in place or else it just won't turn out right. I have, as my Granny says, "medium-thick hair and a lot of it!" It's a little past my chin in length and stacked in the back with side swept bangs that resemble tapered layers more than bangs (the shortest layer falls just below my cheekbone when blown dry correctly). My hair is straight with a natural flip at the bottom and is silky smooth and shiny. (I know all these different factors can help determine what products would work best for me or I wouldn't waste your time on it, I promise.) Basically, I just need to know what you amazing beauty experts would suggest to hold finger waves in place in my hair. I'm trusting you with my life!
I apologize for asking about this issue that has been asked before. But I just received my Guerlain meteorites -- the old (2010 I think) formula. I would like to be able to use a brush I already own, at least to see if I like these meterorites or not, but am unsure which type of brush to use. Is it better to use a denser packed brush with these meterorites? Or a soft fluffier one? Is there a certain shape of the brush that seems to be better? Is natural hair (vs. synthetic) better? I tried using it earlier today with a fluffier natural-bristle brush that I pulled out and I didn't see much of anything on my skin (even though it appeared my brush picked up some powder). Another question I have is if I use a powder brush for it, can wiping it off be enough if I want to use the same brush for setting powder, or do I need to have a separate brush?
Exactly what the title says I know we've chatted about this before, but I thought I'd revive the topic with a new thread. With Chic Week coming up and new collections/products/lines dropping what feels like every day, what brands (collections, too, since Sephora's offering can be limited at the brand's discretion) do you wish you saw on shelves? For me, it would be Chanel, Tom Ford, and YSL's Spring collection. Chanel's Illusion d'Ombres (cream shadows) and Glossimers (lip glosses) are calling to me with their siren song, as are Tom Ford's lippies, quads and contour palettes (however exorbitantly priced!!!). I love YSL lippies, so I wish the new colors got some love here at Sephora. Oh, and while we're on the subject, ByTerry and Chantecaille wouldn't hurt, either! I adore both, and don't own nearly enough of either!
My name is Bombshell and I continue to be an eyeshadow addict enthusiast !! However, five weeks ago I began a quest to actually start using my mountains and mountains of palettes and shadows. Along with some awesome ladies who have joined in I have committed to using the same palette 5 days in a row and posting the results at the end of five days. Those with single shadows are welcome to join in as well! If you are interested in the original rules & lists posted they can be found in off topic, (take the challenge: palette parade). the gist of it is make a list, plan to show all your shadows love for extended period of time (5days), if you hate it first day move on. I am also planning to add weeks of singles by brand (Stila week, UD week, Nars week). I think instead of posting and editing lists it would be easier to report what we plan to use at the beginning of the week and the report the results at the end. We meet here at the end of the week to discuss what we wore for the week, how it worked for us and most importantly to share pictures and advice! Anyone can join as we all started at different times and have different numbers of palettes, and will finish at different times. I am looking at 38 (?) more weeks if I don't buy one more palette! Xoxo I look forward to more fun parading with all you girls! Palette Parade Princesses: CalamityJane85, Nikki, LadyMeag, Beethousand, AmberAngeline, MaFan, nurseCupcake, Carolang, Jenblush, Malday, Sparlekai, GHKim, IttyxBittyxMe, Katie241, SirenPrincess, Manniface.
I've been struggling finding a foundation that is truly full coverage or comes close to it with staying power. I have a lot of acne scars and hyper-pigmentation. The closest one I got to was Kat Von D. It was the perfect formula, but none of the colors matched. I've worked in cosmetics off and on and therefore have become super finicky when it comes to formula/color match. I tried almost everything out on the market. I'm very fair and need something with a pink undertone while keeping it matte. I'm keeping my options open and starting to look at ones sold in the drugstore as well. If you could help me it would be greatly appreciated!
Hi guys and gals! I've been thinking about trying to lighten my really dark brown Asian hair for the summer. I would probably go get highlights, but the 'rents both refuse to let me dye my hair (they think it's too pretty as it is now). But, I'm sick of the color! I've had it my whole life and I want to change it so badly. I've been researching products such as Sun In and other lightening agents, but I'm realizing all of these products have warnings for people with darker hair, saying that the product will lighten but will bring out more red tones. I was wondering if anyone has used hair lightening products before and can maybe give me some suggestions.
So I fell in love with a set of Japonesque brushes that's available at Ulta, Beautybar and Dermstore for full price. The only site that have any applicable promo going on seems to be beautybar, which have a refer-a-friend program. So, refer me? =)
So I've been filtering through foundations for two years now and I'm kinda ready to just pick one to settle down with. That being said, I'm picky and easily swayed to try new things. As of now my foundation preferences rank as the following: Urban Decay Naked > MUFA Mat Velvet > Tarte Amazonian Clay I want to buy either Hourglass, MUFA HD, or Smashbox HD next and I can't decide which one to get! Also keep in mind I have some acne and pretty bad scarring. What do you guys think? What should I go for next? (Also, I am open to foundations besides the ones I've listed)
Any of you tried one, or both of these pretties? I am trying to decide between the two, as they look pretty similar in pictures. I love the Chanel but I get points and dollars towards Rouge requalification if I choose the Dior, so....decisions, decisions!
I got my Nordstrom card online and I couldn't resist using it right away on makeup. I've heard a lot of people rave about Nordstrom's and how much better they are than Sephora but I need details! So far, they have the standard 3 free samples that don't look any different than Sephora's but their rewards program is a bit on the high side. I think they said 2000 points puts you on the lower level. But anyway, I bought a whole bunch of Burberry lipsticks and eye shadow palette as well as my standard 5 million Nars products that I've never purchased before because I didn't think the colors were right but Nordstrom's color charts seem to be better than Sephora's. More true to color but I may be wrong. I even picked up a MAC lippie.. But I've never tried Burberry before so I wanted to get the opinion of those who use it. I picked up 3 of the Velvet Matte lipsticks and the Soft Satin lippie. I also picked up the Beauty Complete Eye Palette. While it is expensive, is it worth it? And I was eyeing some Tom Ford's. How is that?
I was reading some article (it was in Shine I think) it listed a few beauty apps that would make you life easier, and one was an app called Glamsquad. Has anyone heard of it or used it?? Is it a new thing or has it been around a bit. I downloaded the app and basically the hairdressers come to you and do your hair, you pay online and they do everything else you just need to have wet hair when they show up they do blowouts and updo's and things like that. This sounds like a neat concept I suppose if you had an event you were going to and wanted a nice updo or some hairstyle you couldn't do yourself. What do ya'll think???
