Hi Ladies, I bought GHD classic 1 inch today but as it doesnot have adjustable temp control so I am afraid that it wont damage my hairs or make them dry.Should I keep it or change it with T3 single pass styling iron or any other.Please suggest BTW I have long ,slighty waivy hairs
I just saw a post from Starletta8 saying she really likes the Shiseido items she has tried. I tested some today at the Sephora event but really havent used any of their products. I have combination skin (oily forehead & nose, normal cheeks & dry around my mouth). The SA recommended the balancing set. What do you think? Oh and I loved the Urban Environment Tinted UV Protector Broad Spectrum (shade 1). Just disappeared on my skin and then felt smooth.
I know mascaras are supposed to be replaced every 3 months, but what about foundations, concealers, blush, powders, eye shadows and lipsticks/ lip glosses? I recently went through and got rid of makeup that I knew was old. Now, I'm not sure what should be tossed or used up.
Hey, so i signed up to be a beauty insider, but all i gave was my email, because i did not want to have the beauty insider card shipped to me, and i was believe that was one of the options during the registration process online. I was wondering, in order to get my birthday present, do i need to have the card? Or like, do i just go up the the employee and ask her for my present? If so, do i just tell her my email? Im confused please help! Its much appreciated! Thanks
Hey Chicks, I thought it would be fun for everyone if we did this post. I wanted everyone to think about something negative in their live that they gave up or over came no matter how hard it was and had a really good result because of it. I wanted each and everyone of us to have that "Woo Hoo" feeling knowing they had what it took to get them to the result that made them and their life better. Mine would be: 1. The weed(being the negative) I pulled would be caffeine & the good (flower I grew) would be more radiant skin and no more jitters. 2.The weed(being the negative) would be cutting my hours at work. (Even though my job was not negative it was taking up too many hours when I wanted to spend that time with my family. The flower(good part) Getting to spend a lot more time with my family and only working 1 to 2 days a week now.
I'm getting my nails done for a wedding this weekend. A month ago I had long, beautiful, natural nails that I cut off because they were starting to split at the ends, in the hopes they would grow back the same way, but alas, now they are just splitting and looking ugh. I am definitely getting acrylics at a salon, so don't bother talking me out of that if you intend to. I've only ever had them done once before, so I don't know what to ask for or what style is "in" right now. I need to know the language to ask for the right thing! Help please! Thanks
Share any recent used up and trashed products here! Mine is a box of biore nose strips---the box of 6. I've had it for awhile....sometimes I use them religiously every week and go through them like mad and sometimes they go untouched for months.
I think it is so awesome that Sephora did the eyeshadow promotion for the BT community a few months back. I think it was a win-win. It got us in the store (I'm sure some of us picked up a little something when we went to swatch...) and then we get to try a new product! I just really wanted to post a huge thank you! (I haven't received mine yet but I'm like a hopeful puppy each day when I look for the mail). I hope that we can do more of these really neat promotions within the BT community in the future. Thank you!
On Friday, my dermatologist diagnosed me with sudden-onset Rosacea (mild redness). She previously thought I had given myself a chemical burn but since my skin is still slightly pink and I flush now when slightly hot, it must be Rosacea. I'm currently using the prescriptions that she gave me, however, I'm on the search for a new cleanser. I've been using Cetaphil's gentle cleanser the past 1.5 mths and while it doesn't irritate my skin, it doesn't completely remove my make-up and is slightly drying. Any recommendations for a calming cleanser for sensitive, dry, and rosacea-prone skin? It would be nice if it could help with the redness as well. Thanks!
I need help with a foundation for rosacea - I am 69 years old, with somewhat dry sensitive skin and today for some reason my cheeks are on fire and don't know what I did to cause this. have not used anything different - any help will be appreciated.
I would like to suggest that sephora expand the shopping list section of the user account/website. Allow the users to make more than 1 shopping list and allow us to label them (ex. Wish List, Staples, Running out of, For Wedding, etc). That way it's easy for us to sort through what we need and what we want instead of having this one really super-long list!
I recently was very sick and I have to take this medication for the next few months and it makes all this acne appear on my face and I've always had a generally clear face s are there any masks or products for that kind of acne?
What makeup is everyone wearing today? Today I am wearing: 1. Benefit Hello Flawless Foundation in Champagne 2. Benefit Coralista blush 3. TheBalm Mary-Loumanizer 4. Dior Creme de Rose Lipbalm 5. Dior Addict Lipstick in 454 6. Benefit Creaseless Cream shadow in RSVP and under all this I am wearing Neutrogena Pure and Free Liquid Sunblock SPF 50 So c'mon now...confess!
I know it would be easier if I knew my shade in the MAC foundation but I bother thought to get a MAC foundation. One of the ladies said I was between a Medium - Medium Deep in the Blot Powder, I could pick anyone it would matter. I'm Medium Beige in Bareminerals foundation. i need help finding a shade match the Bourjois Healthy Mix Serum Foundation.
I'm new at face makeup so I went to my local Sephora and asked for a recommendation for a good primer and foundation for combination skin. They recommended me to Benefit's The Porefessional and the Smashbox Healthy FX foundation w/ SPF 15. However, when I tried the products at home I knew that they were definitely not for me. The Porefessional made areas of my face dry and flaky! The Smashbox foundation was way too orange for me and that is strange because I have yellow undertones. It also does not set even when I apply setting powder. I heard the Victoria Secret's VS Pro Airbush FX Perfecting Primer w/ SPF 20 is great and is a good dupe for the famous Smashbox primers. Any opinions? My forehead tends to get oily over a couple of hours because I have bangs. My cheeks tend to be drier. Is there a good primer and foundation for me? I prefer buildable coverage more on the medium side.
I don't want something that's too hot pink or too red or too coral. To me, a good punch color should be a pretty blend of pink, red, and orange.. But I'm having a hard time finding that perfect color! Show me your favorite punch lipsticks, glosses, stains, and balms!!! Addendum: Nothing shimmery or sparkly!
Hitting pan and finishing a product feels like a major makeup accomplishment, especially when it is something that has been neglected for a while. So, I figured why not have a thread where we can share this accomplishment. Perhaps we can all inspire one another, and probably discover a new product or two to replace the finished one lol. I am about to run out of a few items. My Buxum Lash mascara is getting low, and my Mega Plush mascara has maybe a couple of uses left. I wore the Mega Plush a lot this summer. The Neutrogena concealer feels like it is getting low, but I gotta give it some credit for being a drug store product. I bought it during the Spring semester, so it has lasted quite a while. TheBalm BalmShelter TM, which I bought last summer, is almost at the end of its days. I've used my Revlon Lip Butter in Sugar Frosting a lot this summer as well, and that is what remains of it. The nub is what remains of my Sephora Retractable Waterproof Lip Liner in Nude. I need to replace it ASAP!! Although no where near finished, I have made a small dent in my Buxom lip gloss in April that came in a 500 point perk. Another item that I need to replace ASAP: Victoria's Secret Pro Lip Scrub and Balm. It has helped my lips out a lot since I bought it sometime in February.
There are 2 people that I've come to really respect their knowledge of skin care and makeup: Lisa Eldridge and Caroline Hirons. Lisa is exceptional at knowing how to make makeup wear and look better, while Caroline is equally brilliant at understanding the skin and what ingredients it does and does not need--and she is blunt, straight-forward, and speaks from knowledge, not theory. To follow are Caroline's "Things I Say Over and Over Again". I know a lot of my questions have been answered by her blog--especially her "Cheat Sheets", so I'd thought I'd share with y'all in case it helps even just 1 person. Enjoy! 1. You are obsessed with your pores. They do not open and close like doors. You say they are HUGE - then send me a picture and I can SEE NOTHING. We CANNOT see your pores. The only person that can see your pores close-up is your opthamologist - or your boyfriend. Your opthamologist is looking at your eyes. Not your pores. And if your boyfriend is thisclosetoyou and notices your pores? He's gay. Or not attracted to you. Or at best, rude. Rethink the entire relationship. 2. You overuse the Clarisonic. A lot of you. A LOT of you. You can use it - you're just not meant to use it every time you brush your frigging teeth. Step away from the trendy facial tool and wash your bloody face properly. 3. Nothing good ever came from scrubbing your face with a peach kernel. There's a reason they are 99p. Step away. 4. In general, foaming is what you want Fairy Liquid to do. Not your cleanser. And to the brands: I am unapologetic. 5. Freckles are cute. At any age. You will do damage to your skin trying to get rid of them. Leave them alone. Embrace them. 6. Stress is the key to most flare-ups, whether they are acne, rosacea or eczema. Practise relaxation. And not in some hippy-dippy way. Seriously. See the bigger picture. Chill. 7. Inflammation is the root of all evil. Eat less sugar, take more fish oil supplements. A lot of fish supplements. 8. Natural doesn't mean you won't react. Essential oils are one of the biggest triggers for skin. 9. 'Dupes' belong in makeup and nail varnish. There is no 'dupe' for a high quality, years-of-research-behind-it skincare product. 10. Spend your money on supplements, skincare, foundation and concealer and scrimp on the rest. You will look fabulous. 11. If you would spend more on shoes, handbags, lipstick, jeans or fashion in general than you would on high quality skincare - you will be a sixty year old woman (and man) with a vintage wardrobe and a face like an alligator.
Hello Ladies, Because we all have the same problem with the addiction of Sephora this is the place to come and release your woes of all the money each of us have spent. So come and feel free to be yourself. P.S.- This one's for you crazeeRN
After applying my acrylics, I decided it was time for some nail art! I was going to do Margarita nails, but my lime fimo pieces would blend too well in with the polish. So I went with a Lemon Lime theme. Each time I do acrylics, I learn at least one new thing. This time, I really noticed how runny the ASP Aspire products are. I read that another person on Instagram was having a similar issue. No matter how lightly I dipped my brush into the liquid, the final product, after picking up my first bead, would be runny on my nail. I'm not sure if that is part of the ASP formula or what. Also, the fimo pieces would work a lot better if encased in acrylic by using color acrylic powder and clear, but I'm not up to that step yet lol. After the acrylic process, I used the following products: Beauty Secrets Base Coat China Glaze Entourage (yay for eBay!) StripeRite in Silver Glitter (this was going to be my margarita salt lol) Orly Quick Drying Top Coat Nail Glue and Lemon Fimo Pieces Cina Top Coat and Bonder Now, let's see how long the lemon pieces last lol.
