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.
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!
I have no idea what term or terms I have violated. This is ridiculous, and as a VIB, my personal right to purchase is offended by some insane rules that I don't know. PLEASE let me know the specific reasons for why my orders have been cancelled, and what are the solutions. I spent a lot of time to pick up gifts for my friends and colleagues elaborately, and after I made my orders, I waited and waited for another a lot of time. When I checked order status, I was mad to find that my orders were freakingly cancelled. Can you imagine what status I am now? This totally ruined all my perfected plan for my friend network, even to my career circle. When I sent email to ask the reasons, how can you just easily replied me by checking your company's term of use, which is as long as the GREAT WALL.
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? =)
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!
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!
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?
What is the absolute best facial wash, I need it to clean DEEP and REALLY GOOD!!!! I have a couple of pimples and blackheads on the side of my nose. (not pretty) I would like a BUNCH of beauty tips for hair, makeup, face, body etc.
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???
My beloved Stila is not so chemical safe and I'm now worried about my MUFE foundation and slowly but surely switching everything over to be safer. Tarte is the closest that matches my skin tone (deathly pallor) but really seems to be just slightly too orange on my skin after an hour or so.
I'm sure you guys all have your favourite products that just aren't quite right on their own but turn into magic when mixed with something else. For me, it's Illamasqua Skin Base-- it's the perfect colour but I find it a bit thick and heavy coverage on its own, so I mix it with primer and/or moisturiser. I mixed it with Revlon Photoready Perfecting Primer today, and BAM. Perfect finish. So now I'm curious: what products do you mix? Foundation with a different base product, magic eyeshadow combinations, gorgeous lip combos? Share, share!
I was thinking about the number of highlighters I have and then I wondered 'what's my total haul over time?' So I added everything up... 5 Foundations 15 Blushes 2 Concealers 3 Bronzers 9 Highlighters 2 Finishing powders 195 Eye shadows (15 singles, 113 in palettes, 57 in customizable palettes, and 10 pencil shadows) 60 eyeliners (51 liners, 3 double ended liners, 2 liquid and one rim liner) 2 Brow gels This is all active makeup - not stuff I've set aside for maybe trades, and does not include any backups. I forgot to count my lip stuff, I will have to do that later! What do you have?
yesterday the tragic new struck that malayasia airlines flight from Kuala Lumpaar to bejjing,china had absolutely disappeared off the radar and has not been seen or heard of. this absolutely kills me. I cant imagine the terror or distress these family's feel, all they want to know is if their loved ones are safe, or moved on with god. all I've heard today is "they are gone, its impossible otherwise" I keep believing they are going to be okay but my parents doubt is killing the hope inside me. you cant give up hope, no matter what.pray everyone please just do this please just pray for these people to be safe. there were 239 people on board including infants, im just hoping that they made an emergency landing in the water and they are on a little raft all together and comfortable. Whenever I travel I get on that plane knowing that everyone telling me "its impossible, for it to crash" "highly unlikely" I cant even believe that this plane has gone down We need to have hope and faith and god needs to know this is not there time to come with him, please let these people go and live on this earth until it is time for them to leave,they don't deserve to leave like this. please everyone pray. if it comes to be that this tragedy has become real please just pray that it was quick and there was no fear in their minds.

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.
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!!!
So in a few weeks I'm attending my cousin's wedding. She's getting married in Texas, her fiance and his family are Texans, so naturally the wedding is "country" themed, and the color scheme is purple (and burlap...yeah, country). My style is, shall we say, more dramatic edging on goth, so naturally dressing down to appease the family is the order of the day. I couldn't find a purple dress that I liked so I figured I'd just work it into the makeup instead. Since I didn't want anything overly shocking but still somewhat interesting, I decided that I wanted to go with lavender eye makeup, along with a little bit of pastel purple glitter pressed on top (it's actually quite subtle, believe it or not, though I may just put it in the inner corner) and black liner. But past that I'm at a loss! What kind of blush or lip would work with that sort of eye without being too obnoxious? Plus it all needs to last and look good in pictures! Argh! Weddings take too much work, and I'm not even the one getting married! Any suggestions for colors or products would be appreciated! P.S. I'm very fair with strong yellow undertones, green-grey eyes and combo-oily skin. Good, long-wearing foundation suggestions would be great too, since the wedding will be several hours long *faints*
Ebates sent out an e-mail this morning saying that instead of 4% off at Sephora it will be 8% again. I don't know how long it will last, but I thought I would share in case someone had been waiting on it to go back up. Happy shopping!
