Hello beautifuls...are you a believer in double cleansing?? If not why and if yes what products have you used in combination that have left you with happy balanced skin?? I have been experimenting first with the cleansing oils (Shu Uemeria Purifying when travelling, Murad Rejuvenating in AM, Clinique Take the Day Off Cleansing in PMl) vs actual pure oils first to remove waterproof SPF/makeup and then a creamy cleanser ( Algenist Gentle Rejuvenating Cleanser) or a foaming cleanser. Occasionally I would add an intermediate step such as a mild scrub or salicylic acid wash if I feel I need extra help with congestion. First I must say I prefer cleansing oils due to their emulsification abilities with water. What combinations have you tried??
What product do you feel like you will you never in a million years be able to use up? For me it's the Becca Shimmering Skin Perfector. The bottle is huge for something I use a tiny drop of a few times a week. Anyone else wish everything came in travel sizes so you could change products every two weeks without feeling guilty about things going bad or going to waste?
Hey Beauties! I just stopped into Sephora yesterday and was trying my hands out with the newly formulated Guerlain Meteorites! I hadn't tried them previously but have been lemming them FOREVER. I thought that with the new formulation it would be a perfect time to try them out. Long story short, I ended up purchasing the colour 03 Medium. Originally, I thought the colour should be chosen roughly based on skin tone, but one of the Sephora reps said it was more to do with the undertones and redness in your skin. She chose to put 04 Dore on me! It was beautiful, but definitely gave me a bronzed look. For day to day I'd much prefer something illuminating but that won't alter the colour of my skin. I have light-medium skin - more on the light side in winter, but get quite tan in the summer. Do you think I selected the right colour? Any feedback would be much appreciated xox
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!).
So I did a Personal Beauty Consultant Advice thing at Sephora like 2 months ago and after trying like 10 different foundation/bb cream/tinted moisturizers I finally landed on the Smashbox Liquid Halo Foundation. It was the only foundation that I tried that didn't look cakey on me, however I want a way to add more coverage to it. I have the MUFE Full Coverage Concealer and its perfect for the single blemishes here and there but I want something that I could combine with the Smashbox foundation to give me extra coverage on my forehead, chin, and nose. Also, I have combination skin with dry patches of my cheeks, forehead, and chin and an really oily nose. Could you guys also recommend a good primer that gives me a youthful glow since I'm a teenager while controlling my oil? Thanx girls! xoxo
I've noticed there are a few other post other there regarding this, but there hasn't been a real solution... With the all recent posts of new Hall of Famers, (congrats to all btw), has anyone figured out how the ranking works?
I started using the korres milk cleanser about 6 months ago, and fell in love with this product! I literally did not have one pimple, or any skin concerns while using it. I then went into multiple Sephora's and they are no longer carrying korres!! Living in Canada, most websites I found that do carry it will unfortunately not ship outside of the U.S. I am seriously so sad this amazing line is not being carried anymore! I recently bought Caudalie milk cleanser (suggested by an employee) and am not super satisfied with it.. It almost feels like my skin is not completely clean! Does anyone have any suggestions on a new, preferably milky face wash!? Anddddd.. how is purity face wash!? P.s I have sensitive skin
Anyone who is addicted to makeup like I am: Do you ever get sick going through your collection? I went to my parents house today and picked up the makeup I had there to bring to my place so I could have my "collection" blossoming. By the time I loaded everything up, I had a large tote full. I was so excited and "woo-hoo" that I had that much. Fast forward to now, and I literally got sick and overwhelmed at the amount. I am those gurus you see on YouTube that you think "Why would anyone have that much make-up". I never realized I had a selection that big. So after getting mentally prepared to go back and sort through everything and try to organize, I had no room. NONE. So now I am overwhelmed with a tote of makeup in my room LOL. How do you ladies organize that much makeup? Any cute containers? I currently have a 10-drawer FULL, a table (FULL) with 6 3-drawer acrylic containers FULL, but don't wanna have to go drop too much money on more storage. HELP!!
Hi, I am 28 (almost 29) years old, with dry skin (but not peeling). So far I have used the Clinique Dramatically Different Moisturizer and the Clinique All about eyes cream, and I am not impressed. I need something that moisturizes better, but is more natural, with less harsh ingredients. I am looking for a moisturizer and an eye cream. Possibly a face wash suggestion as well (I have used Clinique and Origins "Check and Balances" and both are super drying). I was looking at Tarte's Maracuja Oil, but not sure if it is right for my. And will it be enough instead an eye cream, or I need more? Just to mentioned, my skin is not that sensitive, have a little fine lines around my eyes, no acne. Thanks
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!
Today I managed to drop my brannnd spankin new MUFE Flash palette Help me feel better by telling me I'm not alone - what have you accidentally dropped/messed up lately? *tries not to get tears on the newly cracked case* And to make matters worse, Hourglass cancelled my order for ONE ambient lighting palette because they thought I was a third party seller??! Today is just not my makeup day.
Do any of you know what a good product is that I could use to combine with my Smashbox Liquid Halo Foundation to help give a little more coverage on my forehead and around my nose? I have my MUFE Full Cover Concealer that I love to use on my zits but I need something to cover those other spots that need extra coverage. I also want something that helps me to achieve a natural flawless looking face. Thanx xoxo
I am looking to get rid of or just help my scarring. I've researched a few products like Murads post acne lightening gel, PTR gentle complexion correction pads, and Korres Wild Rose + Vitamin C Advanced Brightening Sleeping Facial but I would appreciate other opinions. It can be any type of product that has helped with your own spots. My daily routine consists of: -washing face 2x daily with Cetaphil face wash -for a scrub I use st. Ives oatmeal scrub -murad hydrating toner -tarte maracuja oil -PTR Therapeutic Sulfur Masque Acne Treatment Masque

I wanted to share something I'm really excited about, but I knew that only you guys would understand! I just splurged on another YSL Glossy Stain (19: Beige Aquarelle). Though the colour range isn't everything I want it to be, the formula is amazing: I find the gloss lasts a really long time, isn't sticky, and has a very natural kind of finish. I grabbed the Beige Aquarelle because it's a very natural nude on me, and I wanted to use it for an experiment: if I layered it with some lipstick, would it both tone down my lipstick colour, and gift it with that lovely, long lasting glossy finish? Happily, the answer is yes. I've taken to blending it with some of my favourite browns, bright reds, poppy corals and electric pinks. I put a layer of the Glossy Stain on, and a few minutes later, pick up some of my lipstick with my lipstick brush and put on a semi-generous helping. A minute later, I throw on a final layer of my Glossy Stain and both the gloss finish and the toned down lipstick last all day Has anyone else tried anything like this?
Has anyone ever woken up with an extra fold on their eye? It happened to me this morning and just looking at it bothers me. I have a normal fold in my crease but now I have another fold that goes half way.
Enable me? Disable me? Pros : As previously stated, gorgeous Laura Mercier has yet to disappoint me Cons : $44 for a quad is kind of a lot. Not Guerlain A Lot, but still. I'm not so sure about baked eyehadows. I haven't worked with them much a all. http://www.sephora.com/baked-eye-colour-quad-P3857 65?skuId=1598689
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 ...

Pardon me if this has already been posted! But...there are two new Sephora Favorites up! One is mini mascaras that come with a certificate to redeem a full sized one and the other is Summer Favorites. I'm really digging the Summer Favroites one, especially the Nars and Deborah Lippman Mermaid Polish. Plus I've been wanting to try the cheek gelee and lip tar....oh it's all pretty good! Hello, you gorgeous temptation! On a side note: Hoping the Summer Safety Kit will be out soon! Does anyone know anything regarding that? http://www.sephora.com/lashstash-to-go-P386518 http://www.sephora.com/summerstash-P386520?skuId=1 608991
As many of you, I have a deep love for the Bite Beauty brand. I just saw this product on Sephora today. This comes in 5 sheer colors (one is just clear) and is a five-in-one balm. To quote the product page: "Essential for the look and feel of just-kissed, healthy, and hydrated lips, this color-rich balm repairs, primes, and protects with SPF 18. Natural lip repair lipids mimic the lips’ natural surface to revitalize, replenish, and restore texture for the ultimate softness." I am so excited! Whose gonna get it? (And then post swatches and write an awesome review Lol) http://www.sephora.com/bb-for-lips-P386121?skuId=1 584291
So I recently had my makeup done and the make up artist ranted and raved about how the mascara she was using was a tubing mascara that wraps around my lashes and I could just pull them off with my fingers. How can I tell if a particular mascara fits into this category?? I wouldn't mind having one as an option in my make up case. I still think it flakes so as a staple I would still prefer my waterproof but, on occasion, I could see it being an option. Is it a trial and error thing?? Most labels don't provide that description. Thanks!
This box is open for US shipping only. The shipping becomes more expensive for Canada, and takes longer due to border checks. Sorry Once I get the box back I'll pick out some items and then give the rest to 'The River' (a local organization that takes and redistributes new and used makeup/beauty items to women in need). I've given beauty products to this organization before and they're really good. * Please make sure every item is in a plastic ziplock bag to prevent spills. Donts’s ■ DON'T keep the box for more than two days. Keep it moving! If you are traveling or a special circumstance comes up, we can work to rearrange things.

If you cannot take photos, Do Not Sign Up, please *******PUT BETTER OR EQUAL PRICED ITEMS IN FOR WHAT YOU TAKE OUT TO KEEP UP THE INTEGRITY OF THE BOX********* Final Verdict on Mascara- A lot of the GWP mascaras are not sealed. It is ok to include these mascaras in the box ONLY IF THEY ARE UNUSED. Please be honest (it's a matter of health!). Also, please be aware that some of the mascaras may be dried out upon opening them. Only open them if you selected them as your item. Please be honest when it comes to this. Also, please pick up a large priority box at the post office prior to receiving the box.

I bought this about a month ago and finally used it. Yep, it's lovely! Of course, smelling like chocolates doesn't hurt. But the colors are very pigmented. You can go from neutral to really dramatic with this palette. A keeper! http://www.sephora.com/the-chocolate-bar-eye-palet te-P384402?skuId=1578012
