Are there any popular brands, sold by Sephora or anywhere else, that you just aren't into or don't consider for whatever reason - consciously or subconsciously? Like, for me, for whatever reason, I don't even know why, I never even look at Make Up Forever or Cover FX... and probably plenty of others. But obviously plenty of people love both brands and promote them when people are looking for products.
does anyone want anastasia brow powder? I have in ebony or brunette. I hardly used them I also have illamasqua brow powder in vehement. They are free...I will ship them to u...no strings attached! I just don't want them to be a waste since I found my go to brow gel now.
Not wanting to swatch lip products directly onto my lips, I found a paint chip that is close in color to my natural lip color to swatch onto. My bare lips have a lot of natural color. This hack works for me about 95% of the time. This is also good for determining coverage and pigmentation. Hope this is helpful.
My hair is super dry, damaged, and extremely prone to tangles. I have used so many different shampoos, conditioners and different types of brushes. I get my hair cut regularly. I have struggled with extremely tangly hair since I can remember. I was wondering if anyone else had the same problem and can suggest some products to use that can breathe some life back into my hair and ease the tangles!
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!
Hi, I'm 26 years old and have normal/combination skin with occasional breakouts. Although I'm not at the point of having wrinkles or fine lines, I've always read that you should start using anti-wrinkle and/or anti-aging products in your 20s before any of those issues come up. So I'm thinking of starting to use something, but I honestly have no idea what I'm doing and I need some help. I don't know what kind of ingredients to look for, stay away from, etc. I'm really not looking to get an entire new skincare routine. I already have one that my dermatologist has recommended and has been working for me for years. I'm more interested in a single product that I can use along with my normal cleanser and moisturizer to help stave off any signs of aging. What are your thoughts? Any product recommendations? I'd love to hear them!
Hi all ! I know that August is one of the best times to shop at Sephora because of the great perks, extra points and all those goodies. Has anybody heard anything about this yet? Any posters or in-store sightings? I'm so excited and we're one week away and I haven't heard anything yet! Ah !!! Doesn't 2x, 3x, or 4x (depending on membership) sound awesome? I really hope that Sephora hasn't forgotten...Hoping for bigger and better things this year, not to say that last years wasn't too shabby itself. Let's end this with a question: Q: What was your favorite perk/part/time of August Appreciation Month? My answer: I love the whole month, even though promos change weekly, I loved the VIB Bag w/samples and the 3x points, pretty sweet
I've never really done any makeup when it comes to my eyebrows. (as a matter of fact you can say I leave them alone most of the time, which is bad. I try to get it waxed every couple months or so) But I'm trying to change that. Can you guys recommend some good eyebrow makeup for me? I'm uploading a photo so you guys have an idea of the general shape/color of my brows. Keep in mind I'm a beginner at this
So I got tired of waiting for Perversion mascara to be available in store and bought the Marc Jacobs Omega Lash. I'm on the fence about it. I do LIKE it but I'm not sure I LOVE it. All things being equal, I probably prefer Too Faced Better than Sex because it gave me more volume and fullness. MJ's gives a ton of length, but I already have super duper crazy long lashes and usually want fullness and volume over lengthening. Having said that I am not one for returning products without a REALLY good reason. I really dislike returns of products done lightly as in the end that drives up prices and is extremely wasteful. I think I should just keep and use the mascara. It's a nice mascara and even though it doesn't blow me away, in 2 months I can justify a new one, and hopefully by then Perversion will be available. I desperately needed a new mascara as my old TFBTS was way old. OK, I think I just talked myself into keeping it. 2 months won't kill me. I know it was pricey at $33 CAD, and if I HATED it then I would return it, but I don't think feeling "meh" about a product justifies returning it. OK, sorry, I didn't really ask a question there so much as I just went through a thought process exercise. :-)
I have a pretty comfy makeup station and I do love me my products and I pretty much use everything from soup (primer) to nuts (setting spray). But I've noticed that instead of getting faster, I'm just getting slower and sloooower in my makeup application. I really enjoy the process of putting my makeup on - it's probably my favorite part of the day. But I feel like it's taking me a ridiculously long time to do my fairly simple everyday look (I don't vary how I do my makeup TOO much from day-to-day). So I used the timer on my phone for the past three days: 42, 50, and 52 minutes! Yikes! You ladies have seen my makeup. Nothing on my face should take 52 minutes! I know I take a long time doing my eyebrows - they're always a trouble spot for me. I'm going to TRY and speed myself up over the next few days so I can at least have more time to walk my dog in the mornings before work. So I'm curious...how long does it take YOU to do your makeup?
Are there any particular products/brands that you are completely loyal to? Ever since I discovered Josie Maran's brand 3 years ago, I have not switched my skincare. That is really saying something, because I am a beauty product junkie! Also, I'm super loyal to WEN since switching to it over 2 years ago. What beauty products/brands are you loyal to and would consider your ultimate holy grail?
This is my second order of Give Me Some Lip. My fav is the full size Smashbox with the cushy paddle like applicator and the Buxom with a great tingle feeling. Anyone else have this set? What do you think beauties?
*Apologies if someone has posted about this already, I did a search but didn't see anything. Just finished watching Caroline Hirons new video (I know she is a rather "polarizing" guru but that's besides the point!) and she mentioned as one of her recent skincare favorites the new Ole Henriksen Pure Truth Melting Cleanser. I hadn't even heard of this yet so I did a search and found it on Sephora's site! No reviews there yet so I wanted to come over to BT to see if any of you have seen/heard of/tried this yet! It looks amazing, and I am a huge fan of the Pure Truth line in general. It's also not terribly expensive compared to some other cleansing balms (which this seems to be similar to). http://www.sephora.com/pure-truth-tm-melting-clean ser-P388265 It has vitamin C, rose hip oil, and like the rest of his products no sulfates/parabens. Thoughts??
We've all been there...a bag full of unused or disappointing make up from the drug store, which I still like but without the ability to try before buy you end up with a lot of fails. Then you find Sephora and wonder, is the price worth it? You try a few things, you like a few things, you see the price tag and tell yourself: "Eh, I can go with ramen noddles for a week to afford this." And then you buy it. What was your first purchase? Why did you choose it? I always like hearing other stories like this. Share on!
For whatever reason I'm just not able to tell the difference. For those who have tried both which do you find to be the better performer? I've tried UD, Skindinavia, and Ben Nye Final Seal and found Ben Nye to be the best. However, an artist told me it's not meant for everyday use so I'm trying to move on. I picked up the KvD when it finally restocked last month, but I have a short memory and don't know if it's any better than the UD version. Thoughts?
I posted a previous post about starting a traveling box with samples and deluxe samples and a few ladies were interested in doing one! This is the 1st traveling box I am apart of and of course the 1st that I am starting. So, we need to decide if we are going to do a medium or small flat rate box. RULES No used items. No open items DO NOT take more than you put in. Let's keep this fun and fair DO NOT take multiples of the same sample PLEASE try not to keep the box more than 3 days Make sure to send your address to the person listed above you Once you send the box off, post the tracking number in this thread ALL unused items allowed (well maybe not nail polishes if it will make the shipping costs go up) Post a pic of what you take out, what you put in and what is left in the box before you send it off THIS IS A DRAMA FREE BOX! We are going to have fun and try to keep this going as long as we can! If you are interested in being in the box, I have a few spots left so post a pic of what samples you have in this thread to be added.

I recently bought the KVD Lock it tattoo foundation, I have the UD good karma optical blurring brush but my makeup ends up looking somewhat "cakey". I use the smash box photo ready primer before foundation, mufe hd micro finish powder and UD all nighter setting spray after foundation.. I use about 1 pump of foundation for my whole face if that helps. I'm not sure what I'm doing wrong.
Hi everyone! I recently received an email from Sephora that Kat Von D's Rehab Priming Elixir has been discontinued, and I am just heartbroken. I don't think anything else goes with the Lock-It Tattoo Foundation as much as it did. Does anyone know why it went out of stock or if it will ever be back in stock? I'm afraid that I'm just gonna have to suck it up and find a new holy grail primer. I have oily and acne prone skin. I have tried many primers out there. Benefit's The Porefessional and Too Faced Primed & Poreless- makes ANY makeup melt off of my face and I think it feels like grease. Smashbox More Than Primer Blemish Control feels a little sticky on my skin. Bareminerals Prime Time oil control primer is okay. Make Up For Ever's HD Microperfecting primer is good. But neither of these did what the Rehab Priming Elixir has done for me. Can anyone recommend something similar?
Does anyone have experience with Make Up For Ever Super Matte Setting Powder and/or CoverFX Matte Setting Powder? I'm trying to find a product for a person who lives in a humid area of the South. Early 20's, acne-prone skin, med-dark skin tone. Has anyone found either of these powders to be too flat? Any other comments on them?
I live in a mild climate, where it can be slightly humid, but otherwise it rains continually for 3/4 of the year. I have normal-to-combo skin, meaning I don't really have any major dry/oily spots, but I can get dry or slightly oily in my t-zone occasionally. I use the Boscia Detoxifying Black Cleanser twice a day (ok, usually I only manage to use it once a day), and I moisturize with Ole Henriksen's Nurture Me and Bite's Agave Lip Mask twice a day (religiously). I exfoliate with Exfolikate twice a week, and I use the Boscia Black Luminizing mask all-over once a week, and in my trouble zones up to three times a week. I use the GLAMGLOW Powermud once or twice a week, and I spot treat any incoming blemishes with the GLAMGLOW Supermud as needed. I also use the Boscia Purifying Pore Strips on an as-needed basis as well. What is your skincare routine?
Is anyone else drooling over this new palette by Makeup Forever? It looks gorgeous. I'm also intrigued because I've never tried MUFE eyeshadows (other than a cream eyeshadow I have). I think I read that all these shades are available to purchase separately from their new line of shadows. If anyone here gets it, please swatch and share! Has anyone tried the new MUFE eyeshadows yet? This gets me excited about fall clothes and boots!!! http://www.sephora.com/artist-palette-P388223?skuI d=1622885
Just found out Bite Beauty Release a new Bite Beauty Agave Lip Mask Champaign !!! It suppose to have Rose gold pearl to it. Now I am soooo intrigued by it, can not wait to see it! What are your thoughts?
