I entered a TooFaced contest on Twitter and actually won! It's a Better Than Sex mascara, nothing crazy but I am so excited to have won anything, and I've been eyeing this mascara. Do you enter giveaways or have ever won something exciting? The picture I used that "won" is my profile picture, me holding Glamour to Go II
So I was looking on the Foreo website about their products, and stumbled upon their Luxe and Platinum versions...for $6,500 and $8,800, respectively!!! I couldn't believe it! What is the most ridiculous beauty product you have seen? EDIT: should say FOREO..maybe I'm in a golfing mood! lol
I was so good during the Spring 15% off event but fragrances are my weakness! And now that REPLICA Jazz Club is available I cannot resist the siren call! Planning to get any new perfumes 4/24 thru 5/11?
so after swatting urban decay's newest pen liner i was super excited!! The felt tip is perfect and the liner is SUPER black. after having it for about days & using it maybe 3 times......THE LINER DRIED OUT! I could not believe this!! It was perfect while it lasted =/ better than my HG Stila pen liner. Im so upset by it. i did take it back. It gave the perfect wing liner too =(
My Local Sephora is usually fantastic, never had a complaint about them... until today. I returned 5 products in-store today.. from 4 separate purchases I made during spring fling. 2 unused and unopened... and 3 products I really disliked. So the teller calls over the manager because it is a larger return, which I totally understand.. The manager looks at me and says.. You want to return all of these, you used them all.. and are returning them? Don't you know you can get samples so you don't waste so much product." and gives me an eye roll and a condescending look. So I tell her that 2 are unused and the other 3 products were all skin care and did not work for my skin.. I thought used products that didn't work were able to be returned.. Is this not the case? Or does everyone, get a lecture when they return a product used? Curious if you guys make returns of used products? I personally am really turned off getting samples from jars and such because people are constantly putting their dirty hands in to the product and them I am supposed to put that on my face. Just a gross thought for me. Am I wrong in returning used Skincare?
The 15% off at Sephora is still going on, as well as great promos at a couple other places. I'm trying SO hard not to break my wallet so I'll live vivaciously through y'all's hauls until end of the month. If you are an April baby, don't forget to take advantage of the numerous b-day offerings everywhere(sometimes it take a few days after signing up to get the offer): http://community.sephora.com/t5/Beauty-Insider/Bir thday-Gifts-and-Promos-from-Cosmetic-Companies/m-p ... And of course, before you place an order, don't forget to check the current perks and promo threads that will rob you of all your points and will power: http://community.sephora.com/t5/VIB/Active-Promo-C odes-8-The-quot-I-hope-I-don-t-get-into-trouble/td ... http://community.sephora.com/t5/VIB/Active-List-of -100-Point-Perks/td-p/869671 http://community.sephora.com/t5/VIB/Active-List-of -250-500-and-Male-Point-Perks/td-p/869679 And ebates or whatever rebate website you are using. So what did you get this month?
Who is with me?! The rules are as follows … Must post a screenshot weekly showing you haven’t made any purchased ;-) (this will serve to keep me honest) Will not be swayed by cute little promos, perks or samples. Will not click the ‘Just Arrived’ link. Will not perform search for ‘sephora favorites’ Will not post any promo codes in thread. Will NOT allow outside ‘enables’ entice you to purchase! Even though a product that is on your ‘love’ list but has been sold out, comes back in stock you WILL NOT buy!!! Set a NO-BUY time frame (THIS IS NOT FOR THE REST OF THE YEAR, you pick what would work best for you!).
I was recently allergy tested at my allergy dr. They did the patch test (true test) where they put the patches on your back. I tested positive for parabens, fragrances & balsam of peru. Those things are in practically everything!! Luckily I'm not terribly symptomatic. I was mainly wanting to find out what face skincare/cosmetics ingredients I may be allergic to, since I've been keeping a log of potential problem ingredients. My skin is acne prone and sensitive. It has a tendency to get red and irritated looking (which I thought was just due to acne, but now know that allergies may be playing a role too). I don't really use skin lotions (aside from sunscreen), body butters, etc. I'll wear fragrances/perfumes every so often, and haven't noticed any reactions. I use hand cream somewhat frequently and every so often I'll get a rash, but it isn't too often. My question is, how closely should I adhere to not using products with parabens, fragrances, & balsam of peru?? I'm thinking I should just avoid certain products if I notice a reaction on my body. But for my face, maybe I should completely avoid those ingredients? What about shampoos & hair products? My scalp doesn't really get itchy, but I do tend to notice my hair falls out pretty easily. Could that be due to an allergic reaction? Isn't fragrance in almost all high-quality shampoos?? Any help is appreciated! Thank you!

I'm trying to figure out what to spend my Sephora gift card on.. There's nothing I want now, but I still feel like I need to spend it I Googled but didn't find much of anything, so I'm wondering if there's anything new coming out soon that I may not have caught?
I have severe acne and scarring, which leaves almost "craters'' when I put on foundation. I've always used BareMinerals "Fairly Light" in Matte but I found that it doesn't provide the full coverage I need and comes off very easily. I'm looking for a good foundation that provides full coverage. Regardless of price, what would be the best foundation for severe acne, scarring, oil and redness? I've tried tarte's new clay foundation and liked its coverage but the color isn't my favorite and leaves my skin looking a bit oily. Recommendations? Thanks!
Has anyone come across make-up removing wipes that don't have a smell to them? I've tried nearly every Neutrogena wipe out there (as well as Olay, etc.) and all of them seem to have perfumes in them. It's not a huge problem for me as my skin doesn't break out because of this, but I just personally would prefer to not have my skin smell like pink buttfruit every time I try and clean my face. Any recommendations?
I've seen women who can wear a full face of make up while working out - foundation, eyeliner, everything! I wouldn't wear any myself, because I frankly sweat like a pig and looking pretty/decent/presentable/human is probably the last thing on my mind, but I do marvel the ladies who can look so put together even when they're running or doing reps. I'm really curious how their makeup stays put. I can barely get my eyeliner to stay even when I'm not exercising and not end up with raccoon eyes! :/ (I'm a totally new makeup noob, btw....) Any workout goddesses want to share their secrets?
Hi I have a question I was wondering what the difference between eyebrow powder and wax is.? I have a few shaping eyebrow kits the Sephora collection one and the brow envy kit, Which I love that kit, I also received a sample of the Anastasia brow powder duo which I love as well. Im into trying to get the best product for a good looking brow. I noticed too faced had a new wax called bulletproof brows which I was interested in buying, because on Sephora the Anastasia pomade is all sold out. So I was just wondering what the difference was and which is always best to go with.?
They carry the Hourglass blushes (backordered, but most of them are OOS on Sephora right now)... need I say more? The code is DISCOVER20, and it's valid until next Tuesday, April 22. I picked up a 4-pack of Clarisonic brush heads (I'm stocked up for the next 2.5 years now ), the Hourglass blush in Radient Magenta (thanks to everyone who helped me decide ), and the Hourglass Illume Creme-to-Powder Bronzer Duo in Bronze Light. I split the items up into two orders and got a $40 discount! These are the Sephora product pages for the items I picked up: https://www.sephora.com/cleansing-brush-head-value -pack-P377534?skuId=1494368 https://www.sephora.com/ambient-lighting-blush-P38 4963?skuId=1581339 http://www.sephora.com/illume-creme-to-powder-bron zer-duo-P210576?skuId=1074459 I should be on a no-buy, but I felt this deal was too good to pass up! Happy shopping, everyone!
Hi everyone! So I started a thread recently asking about sunscreen because I am going to buy a sunscreen to use as my daily mositurizer. However, what I did like about the current mositurizer I use is that it helped treat dark spots and keeps me relativley pimple/blemish free. So does anyone know of a night cream that treats dark spots? Keeping in mind I have oily skin, and while not hyper sensitive, some things randomly could break me out. Thanks all!!
When the day X comes, I always have one or two deep zits on my face, and it's super annoying, I think you all know how I use origins gel for spot treatment, but I feel it's not doing a very good job. I'm sitting with my Origins "out of trouble" mask at the moment, hoping it might help , and I decided to ask you, guys, what are your favorite ointments/products for this problem? I'm looking for something that doesn't require a doctor's prescription.
So I recently purchased Urban Decays Electric palette. The colors are so gorgeous and oh so pigmented! I've been playing a lot with it and end up looking pretty comical at times with some of the rainbow looks I've come up with. I can't seem to accept wearing less than four shades at a time! Lol! Has anyone got any pictures of multiple color looks that aren't too over the top? Or do I have to accept using two or three shades?
Okay, so I changed my mind! I need an Hourglass blush... I am only allowing myself to purchase one however, and I can't make up my mind! I've narrowed it down to two colors... Diffused Heat and Radiant Magenta. I originally had my heart set on Diffused Heat, but then I saw swatches of Radiant Magnta -- and it isn't as in-your-face bright pink as I thought! And now I'm wondering if Diffused Heat would turn orangey on my warm skintone. I have light-medium skin with yellow undertones (my current foundation of choice is 2Y06 in Sephora's Color IQ). Which of these two shades would be more suitable for my skintone? Update: I just placed an order with Space.NK for Radient Magenta If I like it, I'll probably end up getting Diffused Heat as well, eventually! Thanks to everyone who provided me with their opinion... hearts for all of you!
