I didn't see anything posted yet about these new palettes, but saw them on Ulta and I'm thinking of using my 20 percent discount to pick one up. A little pricey at $49 each, but it looks like a really nice palette! Top to bottom, they are Body, Mind, Soul and Spirit. Now to decide which one!
From yahoo: "The set features deluxe size samples of MAKE UP FOR EVER's Smoky Extravagant mascara and Rouge Artist Natural lipstick in N9." For the men: Sephora is offering its male Beauty Insiders a reason to celebrate with an exclusive gift from JACK BLACK. The deluxe-sized sample of JACK BLACK Performance Remedy™ Turbo Wash™ Energizing Cleanser for Hair & Body contains rosemary, eucalyptus and juniper berry for a refreshing sensory boost any time of day.
I noticed that Sephora listed a Tony Moly lip balm. Does that mean that Sephora is going to carry the Tony Moly line? If so that would be really exciting. http://www.sephora.com/tony-moly?icid2=product_abo ut%20brand_logo
I have Estee Lauder Double Wear Stay-in-Place Makeup in shade Sand 1W2. I was wondering what was the next shade up with the same undertones? It was so perfect but I've gotten a bit darker and looks a tad pale.
Anyone know a good mascara from the drugstore that comes in colors other than black, brown, and blue? I really would not want to buy a high end colored mascara since I know I won't wear it as much as black.
I don't know if drugstore swatches are allowed on this board, but I really love the L'Oreal Infallible eye shadows. They are super pigmented and buttery. And they really last! Here's swatches of the ones I own. Swatched over Too Faced Shadow Insurance. From left: 756 - Always Pearly Pink 759 - Burst Into Bloom 996 - Liquid Diamond 758 - Purple Priority 337 - Endless Sea 760 - Timeless Blue Spark From left: 888 - Iced Latte 997 - Eternal Sunshine 892 - Amber Rush 755 - Gilded Envy 335 - Golden Emerald
Hi ! I am wondering if the Anastasia Dipbrow Pomade is actually waterproof. Meaning, it'll stay on when I'm swimming in chlorine water. I have heard that the product is very versatile. So my fingers are crossed and I hope it'll last in water. I just don't want to last half a day without brows and some eyeliner in school. Thank you
I searched around and saw storage but not many vanities. I just got my vanity in today, I'm probably going to get a chest to store everything else, because these drawers are small! They also don't open all the way. This is my set up for now. Whats your set up like?
Hello BT! Today is August 1st and that means another month of hauls! This month is the 2x/3x/4x the points for BI,VIB and ROUGE respectively. This is a great time to stock up on points lost throughout the year! Please share your purchases! Remember, a haul is a haul no matter how big or small!
I've always stuck to neutral pink/red or bold red lip shades. I'd really like to experiment a bit more with new colours this fall - darker! More plum/purple/brown tones. But I'm also a little bit nervous. I've got fair skin (cool undertones), brown eyes (pretty dark), and brown hair with quite a bit of red in it (like a dark auburn almost). Any suggestions? I think I'm going to pick up Givenchy Le Rouge in Violine Precieux, although I think that's a fairly safe shade to pick. I've also been eyeing the new Bite shades - but none of the stores near me have them in stock yet has anyone had a chance to swatch them or see what they look like in person?
Eff! I have a feeling the $50 Louboutin red nail polish will end up at my house. I don't hoard cheapie polishes so it's okay to splurge on a luxury beauty product, right? Sephora will be getting it around August 6th if I remember correctly. http://www.sephora.com/product/productDetail.jsp?p roductId=P388556&om_mmc=oth-tum-20140723-Louboutin
My skin looks fairly bad with foundation up close. I have dry, dehydrated skin that's slightly red. Foundation makes it look really dry and flaky. I can't wear blush because it just blends in with my red skin. Is there anything that I can do or buy that will make it looks flawless in a week. Doesn't have to be natural, I just want my skin to look good with foundation on. I'm fine with getting products for the long term but I'd like some stuff that will make my makeup sit right on my skin and look flawless before I go back to school.
I always laugh when I read these articles online that say "10 ways to waterproof your makeup" because they inevitably mention humidity and I just sit there and think "you don't even know humidity." I've tried 90% of these "tips" and they don't really help either. I live in Louisiana where humidity is 100% most of the summer and temperatures exceed 100 degrees. For some reason, my face sweats horrendously bad. I was at the farmer's market this morning for about an hour and when I got back to my car, I felt like I had taken a nice oil shower because my face was so oily and sweaty. Football season starts in two weeks which means I will be outside tailgating and in a stadium for about 10 hours a day in this disgusting weather and I need something that will withstand the heat/humidity/sweat. My face is super oily. Like disgustingly oily right now. The only foundation that I have been able to find that keeps my face matte for more than three hours is Kat Von D and that foundation does NOT hold up to sweat. It breaks up and basically falls apart in no time. So, my question is...any foundations that possibly WILL work for 10+ hours. I usually prefer full coverage, but I'm willing to sacrifice coverage for a foundation that doesn't have my face melting off. I have tried: MAC Prolongwear, MAC Full Coverage (with powder), Kat Von D Lock-It, Smashbox BB Cream, Bare Minerals, various drugstore foundations... I'm currently looking into: Hourglass Immaculate Powder, MAC Face & Body, MUF Mat Velvet, MUF Face and Body, Tarte Amazonian Clay Foundation, Airbrush foundation, Stage Makeup...literally anything that will prevent a melt down. I'm down on my hands and knees begging somebody to help me (ok, not really, but I totally feel like I'm that desperate.) Also, any tips/tricks for combatting a sweaty face. I use a primer, setting powder and setting spray. It helps a bit, but not much.
I love Sephora, and makeup and I don't mean to rant but this is annoying! Although I am only 16 I have spent over $650 at Sephora in the past year or so! And I find it intolerable when workers are rude or judgmental based on my age! I have been followed around the store and completely watched for my age to completely ignored for it! I have been given great service at Sephora, but recently it has become worse and I honestly don't know what I should do about it!
I just hit VIB last week, and I got my 10% off card in store the other day. So, I figured to avoid "wasting" it, I'm gonna give myself an early birthday present and spend about 200-250 and use my coupon. I ran through a lot of my top priorities on my Loves list when the 2x/3x/4x points thing was going on, so now I don't know what I need! I was thinking about maybe splurging on POREfessional, since I currently use something similar from L'Oreal, but after the first few uses the product started coming out with puddles of oil underneath, and I have really oily skin as-is, and I noticed POREfessional was oil free, but otherwise practically the same... Or any other good oil controlling primers? I just love how smooth the pore products make my skin, even though I don't think I have any major pore issues. I also was trying to find an opaque, creamy orange colored lipstick. I love the Kat Von D A-Go-Go color, but I'm sometimes really shy about using super-bright lipsticks, and I don't want it to not get any use if I buy it. So I was wondering if maybe there was something a bit more muted, but still a pretty orange I could check out? Another lipstick color I was looking for was a good red. I have fair to light skin with soft pink undertones (Once I get all my foundation on, at least). I was hoping to find a slightly dark shade of red, maybe a glossy one, since most of my lip purchases lately have been matte stuff. I'd like a good waterline eyeliner recommendation too. I've never had much luck with keeping anything on the waterline. I've been looking at the Too Faced Teddy Bear Hair brushes. They're really cute and seem to be great quality, but I'm scared to make the jump from my ELF brushes. Should I? I've been looking for a good lengthening mascara too, and I was considering Dior It-Lash and KVD Immortal. Finally, a pallet. The only big ones I own are Moonshadow In the Tropics and Chocolate Bar. The Naked I has my eye more than the other two, but I feel like I also have a ton of great neutral shades already in Chocolate Bar. Maybe if there's any pallets with some well-pigmented pastel colors? Baby blue, light pink shades, mint green, soft greys... I'm open to any other stuff too. If you love it enough to rave about it, I'm sure it's worth checking out! I'm also interested in skin care, especially oil control. I just have no idea where to even begin. Thanks!
I use Kat Von D' Lock-It Tattoo foundation in Medium 54 which is a good match for me. 54 is described as being for medium complexions w/ yellow-beige undertones. Prior to finding my match, I bought Medium 53 (doesnt give any info other then being medium) and it was very very yellow on me. So two questions: (1) Does this information tell you that I'm warm or cool? (2) What shade would one mix with a foundation that is too yellow? I hate to throw it away as it's pricey. Thank you for your time. Any advise given will be greatly appreciated.
I use Fairly Medium (for light-to-medium skin with pink undertones) original mineral foundation. Which Pure Brightening Serum Foundation would match the closest? My guesses are between Bare Linen 03 and Bare Ivory 04.
Okay I KNOW this is months early BUT I want to start making my wish list early this year for all the stores that usually have good deals around the holidays. I know Sephora does the VIB 20% off... But that is all that's coming to my mind right now... Does anyone know or remember where all had good beauty deals last year that will/maybe have deals this year?
I have an oily T-zone and very large pores on my nose, I like my makeup to look light and natural and I am loving all of the Korean makeup brands because they fit well with my Asian skin tone. I use a lightweight jelly BB cream and a heavier "pore control" BB cream underneath in areas where I need more coverage. This foundation combination is fine, but it lately it's been settling into the pores on my nose and around my T-zone area, making them look large and my makeup kind of cakey just in that area. I've been trying Urban Decay's all nighter makeup setting spray and I love it, but it's just not enough to control my oil either. I'm wondering if I need to try a different setting powder, primer, or both or something else entirely! I'm down to try anything honestly.
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!
--closed-- Box of awesome high end items and unicorns, show me yours and I'll show you mine, lol. While I’m not “ancient”, I’ve been on BeautyTalk WAY longer than I ever expected and have made some very good friends….as well as been enabled into getting WAY more makeup, lol. It is getting a bit overwhelming and as much as I like pretty things, my style is more minimalist, so I don’t reaaally need 6 or 7 jars of Guerlain meteorites etc. To help revamp/reorganize my stash as well as having some fun with the awesome friends I’ve made, I’m doing the LUV TB. It contains lots of makeup that I love but never use, altho I couldn’t bear to part with any perfumes or majority of the skincare, so you ladies will have to make up for it along the way. Keep it classy, with high end and preferably new or lightly used things. No drugstores. Since it’s got tons of expensive items, I asked people I trust who are interested, so the box is closed. If it goes well, I may do another one next year when I've accumulated enough treasures. =P Expand below to see the rules, taken from the awesome roxystar4 and slightly simplified: Spoiler (Highlight to read) * Please make sure every item is in a plastic ziplock bag to prevent spills.

I woke up today and saw a picture on Facebook: I liked a comment that said " Don't be so stereotypic.... Not all women take that long, for example, I take about 10 minutes to get ready!!! Yeah, whatever..... " Then curiosity got the best of me and I clicked on View more comments and there I found the most.. insane comment I've read in a while. " are you a woman? getting showered &dressed, a full face of makeup & perfect hair does not take 10 minutes. not in our world or any; I take ten minutes to hop out of bed to go to the gym. but I don't look appropriate for work or an evening out - since your profile picture is a man, I can assume you take ten minutes to get ready but for some reason can't share your beautiful, all done in ten minutes self on the internet.... hmm " It made me cringe that someone would comment something like that. I love makeup so much but to have that kind of reasoning - to me it's just so so wrong. I'm sure most of you ladies would agree too. Here's my message: We don't need makeup to be beautiful. We are beautiful. But the most important beauty is not physical, it is inner beauty - that's what shines through. Don't forget to smile, smile at a stranger because it can change their whole day. I may sound so cliche right now but it is what I feel. I remember walking by an elderly woman and she smiled at me and I couldn't help but smile back and that brightened up my gloomy mood. Don't let magazines or what you see on TV dictate what beauty is - we will never be happy with our looks if that were the case. Please have a great day. “No matter how plain a woman may be, if truth and honesty are written across her face, she will be beautiful.” ― Eleanor Roosevelt “The beauty of a woman is not in a facial mole,but true beauty in a Woman is reflected in her soul. It is the caring that she lovingly gives, the passion that she knows.” ― Audrey Hepburn “Beauty shouldn’t be about changing yourself to achieve an ideal or be more socially acceptable. Real beauty, the interesting, truly pleasing kind, is about honoring the beauty within you and without you. It’s about knowing that someone else’s definition of pretty has no hold over you.” ― Golda Poretsky
