Where To Get Urban Decay Vice & Vice 2 ?
Hey ladies, so I know that these palettes are pretty old now, but I was wondering if anyone knows where to get either or both of these palettes for a reasonable price. I know a lot of people wanna sell them for over $ 100 and I ain't paying that much for eyeshadows. Hope to hear some places !

People sometimes sell lightly used palettes on Reddit's /r/makeupexchange, and they tend to be reasonably priced since they don't have to pay the 10% eBay fee. I've seen... see post

Question about haircolor
I have some questions, trying to color my own hair and save money. I bought the color i know my stylist uses, Matrix 6warm and i bought the 30 vol developer. But i didn't take into consideration i had highlights done since then, my hair is naturally a dark brown. It has some new growth and my highlights are a light brown yellowish with hints of orange. Im trying to get my hair like either picture, i like them both. I also bought a Matrix 7ash color, i was going to mix the two but not sure if it will give me the color I want. I was also wanting to know if i should use vol30, would that dry my hair out?

ARMANI EYE & BROW MAESTRO - ANY THOUGHTS?
The Armani Eye & Brow Maestro Creams are supposed to be total game changers, which can be used as eyeshadows, brow color, and even hair color (hair color - seriously?).   There are 9 shades (described as iridescent), they are (apparently) waterproof and they (apparently) last 20 hours.    I have to say I'm intrigued. What do you all think?

appointment at sephora for 12 yr old
My daughter starting to like make-up and I'm not the type of wearing make up and can't teach her much. I just don't want her to put too much or wrong make up for her face also it could be a nice gift for her birthday. Is it ok to make an appointment with a beauty advisor at Sephora, she is 12.  Is is too young, too soon to make an appointment with a beauty advisor for her at sephora? What about the classes? Thanks

VIB SALE HELP
Hi ladies, I honestly canʻt decide what to get from the sale! A lot of cheaper items or some high end stuff? I love lip products (except lipgloss), skincare (except eye stuff), value sets, brushes, and palettes. I still donʻt have the clarisonic so Iʻm wondering if I should get it and which one? I have combo skin and it isnʻt very sensitive. Could you guys please suggest some products for me to get for the sale? Sorry I have so much questions! Iʻve been pretty busy with school so I havenʻt had time to focus on my shopping obsession. xo, Kelly

Anti Aging in Late 20'sd and my
Hi there. 27 years old and my skin isn't what it used to be. I have a fairly good regime with cleansing and moisturizing but I am looking t change it up with some anti-aging products in hopes of preventing.  I've been to drugstores and the advice I've gotten has been varied. My skin is oily/combination and I definitely don't want anything thick as I'll break out. Any suggestions for an eye cream and moisturizer?

Products with fragrances you actually like!
I was thinking about this while I was applying a Chanel product this morning and thinking about how often it seems people dislike scented products, when the scent isn't the product's purpose (perfume/cologne, lip balms, namely). But the blush I was about to put on just smelled so lovely to me this morning.    I feel like the fragrance/scent/smell/odor of products tend to get a bad rap. Anytime anyone mentions how something smells, it seems to be in relation to why they don't like it, or why they brought it back (foundations, hair products, lip products, etc...).    What products have scents that you either love, come to adore, or remind you of something/someone?

Hidding my stash (hauls)
With all the sales going on and holiday sets and limited edition products, and new items, I've been doing alot of purchases lately. Think I've gone a little overboard. Hey you gotta get them when they are in stock otherwise they go out of stock... for ever!   Any how I find myself hidding my purchases and receipts. Not because I don't have enough money for my purchases, I budget well, but because I have too much already.    Tell me do you do the same?  Where do you hide your newly bought treasures?

What are some good makeup to have for beginners for work; I am in the professional phase of college and it is a business dress code. We can dress down from business but it is not enough to be called business casual. I bought a liquid foundation which I rarely use and I also have a bare minerals powder which I use more often. I have one blush from tarte called captivating, stila eyeliner and a smashbox full exposure palette. I am looking for a few makeup must haves for fall/winter or just in general to upgrade my make up a bit.

Made a terrible hair mistake...
I have a lot of baby hairs that stick in every which direction. I hated it so a couple months ago I plucked some of them out. Well I think I got a little pluck happy because I plucked a lot out and my hairline looked really stupid. Now all of them are growing back in and it's getting really stubbly and it looks awful. I want to try to grow it all back in but it's so embarrassing with all this stubble. Any tips on what to do? I feel so awful about myself and so self conscious I know it was a stupid decision

Outstanding October Hauls!!
It's midnight in New York and you know what that means... it's October!! I don't care if I'm in California, I'm still making this post hahaha.    I started my haul at CVS because my sister had $10 rewards for beauty and I used that towards lipsticks for my kit.    I got Wet n Wild lipsticks in Sugar Plum Fairy, Wine Room, and Mauve Outta Here. I also got a Milani lipstick in High Voltage. I paid $2 for 4 lipsticks!   I went to Ulta to pick up NYX Dark Circle Corrector and the Essence Lipstick (4th one above) in Wear Berries   THEN, I went to Sephora to pick up a free deluxe sample of Bare Minerals lipstick in Speak Your Mind and my MUFE Birthday gift!     PS my birthday is October 18 hehe

Is There Anything You Wished You Could Change In Your Appearance?
Beauties,      I know we're a community of self acceptance and loving yourself just the way you are, but I'm curious, is there anything about your appearance you wish could be different?   To start us off, I'll tell you mine.     Though I am completely comfortable/happy with myself, when I was younger my closest girlfriend was ginger, and I lusted after having pale skin, freckles and auburn hair just like her.  I did rock various red hair colors for many years, but never found one that suited me and have given up on that for now.     These days, I mostly just wish I could be taller.  I'm pushing 5'4 and my husband is 6'4 and I would love to be a bit closer to his size.  On my off time I wear giant heels to compensate.  And if we're wishing for things, I'd love to have b**bs the size I had when I was 40lbs heavier, lol.   What about you?

Perfect winged eyeliner tool?
I've been trying to get the perfect winged eyeliner but I can rarely get a perfect line and when I do it's never the same as the other eye. Is there some sort of tool that can help me with the line?
