Hi everyone! I can't decide what powder foundation buy, I have the MUFE Pro finish powder foundation (I'm the shade 117 golden ivory) I have very oily skin and I feel the pro finish don't do much against that. Which one do you recommend?
Just wanted to pass on the fact that Macy's online (only) now has the following hard-milled bath soaps: Miss Dior and Coco by Chanel! They both smell great, and as someone who prefers the long-lasting nature of soaps, as opposed to body washes, which can "turn" and smell weird, I thought I'd pass this along. Too bad Sephora doesn't cary them. I've also gotten the Miss Dior from Nordstrom's online.
Hey BTers, I asked you all a while ago about makeup/skincare tips for days that I work out. Based on your suggestions, here's what seems to work well for me: 1. In the morning for work,I keep it simple by just wearing either foundation or BB cream, blush, eyebrow pencil and lipstick. Because my eyes are really sensitive, I don't wear any eye makeup before I work out because I don't want any residue getting into my eyes when I sweat. 2. Before I work out, I use a makeup removing wipe to get as much of it off as I can. Then of course tie my hair back. 3. After I work out, I use a mild face wash to remove the dirt and sweat. I don't use my regular cleanser because it's fairly strong, and since I use it morning and evening, I thought midday too would be too hard on my skin. I follow that with a mild toner (no alcohol) to remove excess dirt. 4. For makeup, I put on BB cream, mascara, a bit of eyeshadow, pencil my eyebrows and lipstick. That's it! I hope this helps anyone wondering about skincare/makeup on days you work out.
Hi! Anyone who's been watching the Goss YouTube channels probably has heard of his trick of using a high-shimmer eyeshadow under and over lipstick in place of a gloss. After a lot of experimentation with glosses (from YSL to Burt's Bees), I decided they aren't for me. But, I love the high shine look of lip gloss, so I want to give this technique a try. Has anyone tried (and succeeded) doing this technique? And what shadow did you use?
Ebates has Origins at 4%, but Mr Rebates has them at 10% cash back. Plus you get free shipping! It's through 3/11, so don't wait too long. I'm saving up for Chic Week otherwise I would make a purchase!
There doesn't seem to be a lightest to darkest kind of thing on line. I am wearing FAIR, which is listed after IVORY that has more color/warmth. Or at least appears to me to be that way. I am a 4Y02. Matched at Sephora with FAIR...I need a tad more color/warmth and don't know if I should go with IVORY which 'seems' like its next but is before FAIR in order on the list. Or with LIGHT GOLDEN which is after and for sure has more color/warmth, but is it too much? And what is with FAIR GOLDEN being sooooo dark?

Sephora need to randomly choose some of the VIB/ rouge to be mystery shoppers in the stores. Not the ones they frequent but different ones to see how they are treated. I will be the 1st to volunteer because i'm fed up with being misunderstood by some of these SA's!!! You wouldn't believe some of my horror stories. I wish I could secretly video and record some of my shopping experiences and send them to you. The sad thing is....I know I'm not the only one. Spoiler (Highlight to read)

I remember a long time ago there used to be Illamsqua polishes at SiJCP, but I guess I found at place that carried them. The last time I saw them, they were in a sales rack and on sale. Do you think there might be some sale Illas (yes I just abbreviated Illamsaqua) left? I really would like to get some new polishes after my no-buy and then send all my OPIs to the trade thread or to the friend who might want to buy my old ones.
Not sure if someone already posted this, but the Lorac Pro to Go Cheek Palette is in the sale section for $10 off. I haven't been keeping up with the threads as much so I don't know if this was already posted. http://www.sephora.com/pro-to-go-eye-cheek-palette -P379960?skuId=1550698
Well, I went to write a review on this palette, and it's out of stock, so I can't do it. I don't know if this palette will ever come back, but I got 4 words for it: Winner, Winner, Chicken Dinner! OMG. Gorgeous. It's pretty matte but has great pigmentation. I like that it's really subtle and is just such a pretty accent to my eyes. So if you see it somewhere, grab it! It is 6 lovely colors!
