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!
Fellow BTs, I need some help finding a good eyeshadow primer/base. I'm looking for something that will give me true color from my shadows. I have these lovely high pigmented shadows but they just fizzle when I put them on. I've tried UD primer potion but it was too drying for my eyes. I'm looking for something sans phthalates and parabens. Maybe something that can help color correct too. I've got a little bit of discoloration along my lash line.
So i used to tiny bumps and lots of small pimples all around my cheeks and forehead, and these few months, they've cleared up a lot and i am comfortable to go out without makeup except for this issue: I may look fine in my mirror, but once i go out in sunlight....i see dark dots on my face, kinda like acne marks and i look horrible and uncomfortable in my skin again. so what did i do? I put on make up. looks awesome in my mirror, looks fine in the sunlight, but in certain lights, my face looks so dry and the bumps are accentuated. ive tried a range, from kat Von d lock it foundation, makeup forever foundation, Laura merrier powder foundation, concealers.....other foundation...bb cream... Gverythung. But i still look horrible in many lightings and my skin skin looks so bad.... so ive tried concealers, liquid, powder.... Pretty much everything.... I even have the water spritzers... But nothing works. What products can i use?
I was on IG earlier & this picture seems to be going around. Anyone picking it up? Is said to be released in October, at 58$ . I'm not sure if I'll pick it up. Maybe if the 3 blushes aren't ones I own... Or there's a LE one. We'll see 😬
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
i just saw a commercial for Manga Mascara! It looks so neat to be able to do, and before now, I didn't even think to do my lashes that way. Has this always existed and I just didn't know? Has as anyone done this before, with or without manga "mascara?"
With my last few shipments I noticed that Sephora started using OnTrac for rouge free three day shipping. I don't like the OnTrac online tracking system because it doesn't list an estimated delivery date. So how am I supposed to know if my package is.... on track? If anyone has any advice on how to fix this, I would love to hear it.
This hasn't been started yet so I'll give it a go. Today is the last day that SiJCP has an extra 25% off clearance so I stopped in to poke around before I start up the smoker for tonight. I grabbed all these goodies for $30.

Good morning (or afternoon) BT! You migh remember my post from yesterday about a new round of challenges. This is just for fun, and I will be posting a new theme every week. Feel free to join in whenever! To quote my post: "I'm not sure how many of you remember the makeup challenge posts, but I want to start some new ones for October! With Halloween just around the corner (yes, a month is just around to corner to me) I thought this would be a good way to practice any potential makeup/costume ideas. I'd like to post a new theme every week, but there are no deadlines so feel free to join in whenever and show off your costume makeup skills" With a little inspiration from the recent MAC collection, this week's theme will be Rocky Horror Picture Show ! Recreate a look from your favorite character or create your own RHPS inspired look. I'm looking forward to what you guys post and will be doing a look of my own Have fun! Here is some face chart inspiration also:
Guys, you know the saying.. Fool me once, shame on you. Fool me twice, shame on me. I went to Sephora on two separate occasions. First, I went to make an exchange from the DUO Mat powder to a Stila eyeliner. Meaning from $34 to $20. So I should be getting $14+tax back on a store credit card. Cashier scans the eyeliner first then the Duo Mat, then the eyeliner. Bro tells me that I owed $7.XX for 1 eyeliner that cost less than my Duo Mat. I don't think that is how math works, I am not an accountant, but I can do basic math. This dude obviously can't. He swiped the store credit card twice, meaning he puts my amount of $14.+tax on the card and then takes it back out and tells me to pay more. Uh no. Fast forward to the afternoon of the same day, I called to check my balance. NADA. There is nothing on it, that was 9/8/2014. I called numerous times to have this solved and nothing. FINE. I will pretend that I got burglarized and lost about $16. Fast forward some more, to 10/1/2014. I went to the same Sephora to pick up some makeup removing wipes. $12 for Josie Maran and $8 for Ole Harry. $20 total. I have some gift cards to use. One had about $2.XX and the other had about $35. I gave the dude the first one, then the second one. He then tells me that the second one was just enough to cover the charge and then threw away my gift card. I asked for the cards back and he gave me the receipts. I am now home and was looking through my receipts. Well, guess what?! Bro threw away $14.13 into the thrash, if I had not ask for my cards back. AND IF I HAVE YET TO MAKE IT CLEAR, IT WAS THE SAME SA THAT CHECKED ME OUT. So here is my wonderful Sephora service story. Even if they are as nice as angels, I cannot tolerate the SA's being so incompetent. I almost lost $30 just from this one guy. Bottom line, lesson learned. If possible avoid Stonestown Galleria Sephora.
HI I know I've probably asked this question before. DOes anybody have any suggestions on a good smudgeproof long wear eyelinger someone had told me the sephora 24 hr or waterproof one I purchased that one and it would fade. So if anyone can give me a good suggestion on a long staying and non fading one thanks
What shade am I for Estee Lauder Double Wear Light (squeeze tube one, not glass bottle)? I have 1.0 right now and it it too light and too pink/cool toned. (P.S. I'm asking again since my question was missed...)
I have always wondered about those cooling roller balls, but never introduced them to my skin care regime as I thought they wouldn't provide much hydration to replace my eye creams. Do people generally use roller balls with an eye cream? Is there a recommended step to use it (i.e. day or night, before eye cream or before make up)? Do you have any specific product recommendations? Let me know, I am very curious! Sugarislove
Product: Make Up For Ever Mat Velvet+ Foundation I know makeup has an expiation date but i'm a very clean person who loves to keep my makeup in good condition so they can last me longer than the expiration date. I bought this foundation 1+ years ago and I never liked it at all. I tried to give it a chance but I hate it. I never returned it because I lost the receipt and I recently found it. Idk if they will still accept it after 1+ years. It also had a problem with the foundation spilling out to much product. So I never used it after that.
So I have a few primers, which I will probably keep messing around with anyway. But I use UD's Naked Skin foundation and lately it's been caking on my chin. I'm almost certain my technique is fine. I wash my face and moisturize beforehand. But now on my chin it just catches flakes of skin I can't even see. It's so frustrating because I need/want the coverage, but then you can totally tell I have foundation on. So I need a good primer rec. I have acne prone skin, and I'm super pale so no tinted options please.
Well, it's that time of the year again - the time when we get to buy special products for ourselves (and others) and possibly feel a little less guilty about spending, knowing that a portion of the money we spend goes to a worthy cause. Breast Cancer is not just something for women to worry about, it is a disease that men can be diagnosed with too. * I was hoping we could all post products that we find that support legitimate charities to raise money, Please feel free to post whatever you find.* If you search "Beauty That Gives Back" here at Sephora you'll find a few cute items, I"m hoping there are more to come. I Just bought a pink Tweezerman tweezer - looks like it may need a BCA mate. Clinique and Sephora both offer "BCA Pink With a Purpose" Lipstick in a cute little case. A Huge fave of mine is by Bobbi Brown - it's "Pretty Pink Ribbon Lip Gloss Collection" It's 4 glosses and they're gorgeous! (I'm hoping they're minty flavored - sometimes they do offer mint gloss - waiting on that info.) This one is really screaming my name! Estee Lauder usually does something as does Ford (they usually have special T-shirts.) So many decisions to make, but it's so worth it. For a pinkaholic like me, this is a dream & a nightmare! But hopefully our purchases will help make other peoples true nightmares - past, present and future - turn into a dream come true. So please feel free to add any other offers you may find. Oh, just one other thing, please feel free to leave one of everything pink for me! btw - As usual, sorry so long. I also hope the wording of this was okay, didn't want to use certain words that might upset someone or make light of this situation at all - I hope that came through.
I am sure we all have some products that we use the most and then we "run" to Sephora (or other stores) to repurchase and stock up on it, with a thought - "Just in case or I am about to finish up my other one, so I might as well pick up a back up now... etc" . What are your most used products, the ones you know you'll go and repurchase no matter what? Mine are: - Anastasia Brow Wiz - ohh boy - this is one of my little fave things that I use the most and I buy few of them a year, just because I use it so often. - Nars Creamy Consealer - does its job, so smooth and gives me the coverage I need! - When Travelmate face masque <3 - so amazing, portable, and travel safe/mess free!!
Hi all So I have been eyeing door star foundation But I want some good points to justify the price How good is it I'm dry skin with Lil oily tzone Also for Nc30 skin tone do you guys think armani luminous silk 6.5 will be too dark?? Thankyou ..
Today I came home and was super excited to have 8 Sephora boxes to open up even though most were gifts for my family and friends. I had purchased a few of the Ocos Locos 2, Feminine Palettes, Philosophy make up removers , etc from the recent sale First of all, I noticed that instead of receiving the Sephora gift bag like I requested, all 8 orders were in big gift boxes. Then, after opening all of my packages, I was missing 10 samples in total. All of the ones that I was supposed to get the Kate Sommerville exfloiant were missing. I know that they are allowed to substitute samples, which they did for some, but I was still missing 10 ! To make matters worse, I was missing 2 of the Clinique Smart serums that I was supposed to get for using the SMART promo code. I'm not impressed at all with the warehouse! Can someone please tell me what is going on with the warehouses?
"Sneak Peek! I can not wait for Nic's Picks to launch for Christmas. 3 exclusive new brushes. I will show you them in my next video. Coming worldwide in October" I'm so excited! I love the silver chrome brush handles.
Whenever I watch fashion shows, I would watch them for the makeup more so than the clothes (which are fantastic in any case!). I thought it'd be fun to start a thread of favourite inspirational makeup photos Here are a few of mine from the latest NYFW SS15.
I am wearing a black dress with rhinestone accents to a wedding. I have medium brown eyes and medium toned skin. What are the best color eyeshadows to wear? My daughter says purples because it makes my eyes look pretty. Please advise.
