hi everyone! so i have previously bought the fresh sugar lip balm and it worked very well, however, im not sure if i will buy it again solely because of the price. in your opinion, is 22 dollars for a lip balm too much to spend? does anyone know of any great natural lip balms either? thanks for any help!!!
OK, here's a fun one! I did a search but didn't see a similar thread within the top 10 pages- if there's one, my apologies! We all have those great "gone but not forgotten" products- whether it was discontinued, replaced, or Sephora just stopped carrying the line. What are your Sephora favorites of yesteryear that you'd love to be able to buy in-store again? I'll have to think about something a bit older, but I'm bummed that I didn't discover Tarina Tarantino before the brand was on its way out! Her eyeliners and eyeshadow palettes are among my favorites.
Does anyone have any idea as to what color lipstick Kat Von D in this tutorial. Is it a new shade of her painted love lipsticks? http://www.youtube.com/watch?feature=player_detail page&v=ZaLzcvGQxjw&list=UU9YX5x_VU8gfe0Oui0TaLJg
I have oily skin, although my current skincare regime is doing well to keep that under control. My pores aren't all that noticeable until I apply foundation. I have tried several primers (Hourglass Mineral Veil, Benefit Porefessional, Smashbox Dark spot correcting, tarte poreless, tarte brightening) but my fine lines and pores seem to become more noticeable when I apply foundation particularly on my cheeks and around my eyes. I use a flat top brush and buff the foundation forward and in reverse as suggested by a gossmakeupartist video posted by another contributor. I don't wear makeup on a regular basis for that reason, but the 2 most recent foundations I've tried are Lancome Teint Idole Ultra 24HR (love that it's transfer-free) and Hourglass Immaculate Liquid to Powder (really like the finish). Maybe I'm just too picky, any suggestions?
Hey guys and gals! As some of you know I am a Caribbean girl and for the first time ever I will be participating in Carnival!! So I already am confident with the makeup I need EXCEPT for foundation (concealer options will be welcome as well). You see I will be playing mas (wearing a costume and dancing) and I need some ideas on a foundation that will last all day in the SUN, humidity, possible rain, the occasional swipe of a towel AND of course, SWEAT. It does not have to have SPF in it as I will be taking care of that with my skin-care. I have normal/oily skin and I wear MAC NW43 or Make Up Forever HD #175. For the record, I am looking at the Cinema Secrets Palettes so it does not have to be from Sephora. Any help is greatly appreciated!!!
For me, it'd have to be would have to be eyeliners that require sharpening, especially when the eyeliner itself is sort of soft and creamy. I can never get it back into a nice tip, and it always end up very blunt. I hate, hate, hate sharpening eyeliners, they always clog the sharpener and, let's be honest, so much makeup is wasted that way. Retractable crayon eyeliners are usually what I use, but I hate when there's a color or brand of eyeliner that I want to use, but requires sharpening. The same thing goes for lipsticks or basically any creamy pencil. Ah-noy-ing!
I just got a beauty blender since some of you have recommended it. And I want to thank all of you that have because I am so loving it for foundation!!! Any who, I washed it for the first time today using baby shampoo (Thats what I normally use for my makeup tools) and i noticed pink dye started running out of the beauty blender.. Is this normal?
Ladies,how do you handle copycats?! Copycats who ask for your opinion be it makeup,clothes,anything you like or want and just post it online to make it as their Own?Ive had it with these kind of people! i have a "friend" who would always ask the brands i like,or the price for the things i acquire and the next thing i know she had a photo on facebook wearing the same item i got! even her husband does that too with my hubby.how annoying is that?! Im too old to post about this but i just dont know how to handle them anymore.they brag about their stuff, and they are annoying as anyone ive ever known.they even STALK us online!!! (Why,hello there!) they're so obnoxious and i couldnt take it anymore! Even the stuff we have at home they would ask us where we bought it and how much its priced. Seriously, they dont know anything about good manners. I dont ever ask someone how much her things are worth,its too personal for me. And having someone as a friend who copies and disrespects u is just so irritating!
When I got into makeup about a year ago I felt like Sephora was like Toys R Us for people who loveee makeup. You can sample products in the stores and theres always soooo many options for what you're looking for. However now that Im starting to get my staple makeup products down I find that there are some things I will or already have repurchased because they work sooo well for me. My repurchased items are... -Naked Basics Palette: I lovee the neutral looks I can make with this palette while also having the option to make it a bit bolder if I wanted to. -Bobbi Brown Corrector and Concealer: I love the consistency of these products creamy and go on soo smooth. -Smashbox Lipstick in Primrose: its my lips but better lipstick and sooo moisturizing
They have a new 500pt perk up online. What's included in the Tarte perk.... -Lights, Camera, Lashes! (0.10 oz) -Amazonian Clay Waterproof Cream Eyeshadow in Shimmering Moss (0.10 oz) -Amazonian Clay 12-Hour Blush in Exposed (0.05 oz) -Pure Maracuja Oil (0.23 oz) -Amazonian Clay Finishing Powder (0.07 oz) What do you guys think??? Hasn't this one already been up before or am I confusing it with a another Tarte 500 pt perk???
I need a foundation that will not break me out more, but will hid my acne and scars. I can not use mineral makeup. I use dr thomasRoth line for acne, but it is either not working or the almay is working against it. Help please!
After many days of staying up late with my mom and not finding what I wanted for my prom dress, I finally found it!!!! I was getting really frustrated with the whole ordeal and my younger sister (she's 2 years younger than me) she found what I was looking for in less than 10 minutes. I was gobsmacked, flabbergasted, in awe, you get the picture. It's really pretty, flowy, elegant, sophisticated and classy. It also doesn't have any kind of sparkle which I love because rhinestones are a big trend this prom season and I wanted to go against the trend. I'm not a big fan of super sparkly things. They do catch my eye but i prefer adding them in a tasteful way through small pieces of jewelry. I want to do rose gold jewelry (earrings, bracelets/watch) and clutch with nude platforms. Warm rose golds/bronzes are more flattering on me than regular gold which looks way too yellow against my skin. For make up I was thinking gold eyes and a red lip ( either MAC Ruby Woo or RiRi Woo (if I can get my hands on RiRi))
I've been watching the news lately and am so saddened by what has happened in Oklahoma. It made me think about "what if I lost everything" (material wise)? One aspect of what i would miss would be my makeup collection. I know it seems super superficial but I would miss it. Is there any way that Sephora could send items to the residents of Newcastle & Moore, Oklahoma who were devastated by the tornado? Shampoo, conditioner, soap, body stuff, makeup? I know it is the least of people's concerns right now and maybe it would be better to do at a later date? I just read a post about people who have a ton of extra Bath & Body Works items (and I know I have a ton of untouched items too)... I wonder if there is someway we could send items to these people? I know that the BT community isnt a place to share super weighty topics but this has been on my heart today.
Ok, I've sort of asked around but now that I know what I really need to ask...I'm asking....I just turned 30, my skin is dulling (lack of sleep with a newborn and law school!), aging (smile and laugh lines) and showing signs of sun damage (from my teenage years competing in rodeos every weekend with no sunblock). I've always used a moisturizer with SPF but no real skincare regimen. I've been eyeballing the Philosophy Care Package ...it has most of what I would like to incorporate in a regimen....but I'm not sure if there is something better to address my concerns. I'm not sure any of it would help with correcting my sun damaged cheeks and nose and I'm almost certain I'd need to purchase some sort of night cream with retinol in it. I'm on a $150 or less budget. Kits seem cost effective. Could any one suggest a regimen with specific products?? I have totally confused myself with what I need....AHA, BHA, glycol, retinol.....oy!
Hey everyone, I'm beginning to lose my temper with my persistent acne! I've tried so many different acne treatments including Clearasil, Clean and Clear, Clinique 3-Step and medicated gel containing erythromycin (I can't remember it's specific name). Nothing seems to be helping. I'm really reluctant to try proactiv or something like accutane since I've heard bad things about both. My acne is usually mild but consistent, but now I'm experiencing quite a flare up and I don't even want to go outside! Any advice you guys have would be great!
So, it's time to go on an extended no buy. I have more than I could ever enjoy for quite awhile. However, if you have gotten to know me a bit- it's going to be easier said than done! So, this thread is hopefully going to be a support group for me- and anyone else who wants to join me in a summer of no buy. The tricky thing is that I've got about 40% of my toner left and maybe 20% of my daytime moisturizer- and I see pan on my HG concealer. I have to buy the concealer since it's a staple product (and I have used up all of the other concealers that match my skin). I'd like to use up some skincare before repurchasing my daytime moisturizer- but if my skin reacts, I'll revisit the issue. When will the no buy end? I'm not sure, but fall collections will be on counters, if not on the leaves!
Hi Sephora I just wanted to thank you for changing your packaging for online orders to bubblewrap envelopes. This is way less wasteful (and still recyclable) and it fit in my mailbox, which means I didn't have to pick it up from post office!!!
What do you guys think about this years kit? Will you be buying it? I just saw it in the new arrivals section but is not for sale yet.. What are you most excited about in this kit? Im still debating if i should get it! Link to the kit: http://www.sephora.com/sun-safety-kit-P379059?skuI d=1524727 *UPDATE 5/8: Sephora took it down since it's not for sale yet, but it will be for sale mid-end of May!! Check back!

Hello everyone (: I was looking for a thread on here about sales going on, not only on Sephora but on other websites or stores. I personally like to look for good deals on makeup since I am constantly trying to build up my collection. I thought I would make a thread where we could all post what sales we know or have heard about in stores or online, include any great codes for deals or even products with great prices.
Of course since I am starting it, I thought I would post a couple that I have been looking into.
This is a flash deal website that has awesome deals that are constantly changing, hence the flash deals Today until friday, they have some awesome deals on Tarte products, so check it out if interested!
Right now, tarte is having a discovery sale with items like the Maracuja miracle foundation for $21.00 instead of $42. There are also two eyeshadow palettes on there for $26 each.
I love their shadows! They have three nice color selection palettes to choose from online ranging from $16-$19.
One last item that is not on sale but I consider a great deal is the lorac glogetter palette! It is exclusively sold at ulta for $20! I am definitely getting that soon.
I'm looking for a good new show to get into. I always have my classic gilmore girls. I seriously watch it every single day and I've seen every episode like 6 times but it is my favorite show ever. It has just always been my favorite show. Some of my favorites are.. Gilmore Girls Castle Amazing Race Modern Family One Tree Hill (so sad its over) Grey's Anatomy How I Met Your Mother (this is recent.. just started watching on netflix) Big Bang Theory... BAZINGA! and some various others.. What are your favorites?? Especially ones that you LOVE to watch reruns of!
I saw a thread a while back on here about counting your makeup products. It was amazing to see those numbers! While I was reorganzing and going through my makeup since I have moved on to Sephora, and since some things expired and I learned that the hard way lol, I got the silly idea to take a picture of it lol. So if you're bored or just reorganizing your stash, feel free to take a picture and post it! My collection is in the little league range at the moment lol This is my stash after I went through stuff. I don't use my Victoria's Secret kit much anymore since I discovered Sephora, but I still do use the blushes in it and the lip products when I'm at home for the day. The main two palettes I've been using are from Urban Decay and Kat Von D, and I love both! Here's my stash back to organization on my spinny organizer my granny gave me for Christmas. It works well for the moment, but there's no way I can fit my polishes in it lol.
I am pregnant and cannot (and don't want to) use tanning beds this summer...I know I will get sun though, and even with sunscreen I will end up getting a tan line. (halter top) I want a quick tan that will last a couple days for each of the weddings, especially the one in late August when I know I will have tan lines. (The other one is next Saturday.) Which of these products do you think I should get? I know it depends on my preference; to be honest, I haven't used self-tanner since high school 10+ years ago so I don't know my preference. http://www.sephora.com/self-tan-bronzing-lotion-P2 61321 http://www.sephora.com/self-tan-bronzing-mousse-P2 61322 http://www.sephora.com/self-tan-bronzing-spray-P26 1323
