So I was watching a youtube video of Vintageortacky and when I saw her Charlotte Tilbury blush, my jaw dropped. I had my eye on the YSL peachy one but .. this... just beats it, and can I say cute packaging? I wasn't going to jump on the CT bandwagon, but according to Cora this gives a nice natural peachy touch.. yep. This blush is called Ecstacy. And this one is the one Cora used called First Love.
We've all seen this on youtube, if you haven't.. go do so and have a laugh - maybe I'm always laughing and thinking to myself that it'd be fun to try this. Sometimes I say "there's no way they can mess up that bad, come on.." So I decided, why not make a thread about it? I want to see pictures, be it one or a ton, to show how good we can apply makeup without a mirror - it's hard! I used all products I use when I do the works, which is almost every day. A lot of people know my liquid liner skills.. I used it here.. but it didn't come out as great as I wanted! If you're interested in the lipstick shade, it's Shanghai Express by NARS. Sorry for the lighting, it's either this or suffer a heatstroke in my bathroom (it's hot in there).
Have you seen this baby yet? So pretty! Temptalia posted this today. $250.00 U.S. / $295.00 CDN (Limited Edition) "Availability: September 2nd for VIB Rouges, full release on September 9th at Sephora and September 2nd at Make Up For Ever Boutiques." Temptalia
I've recently changed up my skincare routine and found a foundation that matches perfectly (Tarte Amazonian Clay foundation in light sand) I've been using the hourglass mineral veil primer but I feel like it is making me look a little more glowy than I would like. And the Tarte foundation is supposed to be matte and it is supposed to last but I almost feel the primer doesn't' make it last as long as it claims to. I have combination skin so its hard to find a primer that won't make my foundation slide off my face but won't cling to dry patches. please help!
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 don't know if I'm just picky.. But I'm so picky when it comes to foundations matching me well.. Does anyone else have that problem? I have foundations and they look good in some lighting, but in other kinds of lighting they look weird. Is that normal? Like is it normal for foundation colors to look different in different lighting? I went to the mall today, and I looked in the Clinique mirror and it had some lighting around it and I looked so yellow! Lol I was like geez this lighting is so unflattering or my foundation isn't a good match. I'm just so picky when it comes to foundation because I don't want to look like a clown lol
Guys, my current foundation shades just aren't doing it for me, but my concealer is a great match. So I am looking for a foundation that is closer to my concealer shade. I am using MUFE Full Cover Concealer in #6 Ivory. I am open to any brand, any coverage, and finish. I just need that right color. So please feel free to suggest any foundation that is a match to my concealer. Thanks guys!
My love for Sephora continues. I was sent a comped, brand new, full sized Dr Dennis Gross Alpha Beta Medi-Spa Peel (launching 08-26-14) to review. I will use it for the first time tonight, so check back to this post if the product interests you.

Someone in a Facebook group posted this question, so now I'm curious to know how much YOUR face is worth! Add the price of everything you used! (You can add skincare if you want ) Today, my face is worth $139!
I have recently learned that Hakuhodo has an office in LA. LA is close, but not close enough for me to just go there because I want to (its 6 hours drive from the bay area) Has anyone been there? I've heard that they offer 20% discount too. if anyone is planning on going, may I ask for a favor of a couple brushes (I will pay full price plus shipping)
I got an interview, guys! I'm, as they say, scaroused. I'm so scared to mess up! What do I wear?? Should I put on a bit more makeup to show them I'm a serious addict? Any help will be greatly appreciated!
I'm under the impression that natural hair brushes work better for powder products and synthetics for liquid. I've been eyeing the RT blush brush? or the one that is shaped like a cone for bronzer application but I know that all RT brushes are made of synthetic hairs. Is my general rule concept mistaken or is it the quality of the brush that matters more?
Can you mix powder foundations like, MATTE Foundation Broad Spectrum SPF 15 - Golden Medium (from BAREMINERALS), with water to make it a liquid foundation? It may be best to just buy liquid foundation but it does not sit well on my face! So I was just wondering if it were possible to turn the matte powder into a liquid, with water, and apply it with a brush? Thanks!
I had a friend ask me what I would consider basics for beauty and skincare as she is just starting out in the beauty world and is looking to get a regimen going. However being the beauty junkie that I am I am trying to narrow down a list for her. So what would you consider Cosmetic and Skincare basics?
I'm not sure if this counts as solicitation since I'm mentioning a website, so please delete if not allowed. But every once and a while I do some BSTing online and I end up with lots of money in my PayPal. Of course I want to spend it at Sephora. I like to...ummm...keep it secret from my husband and avoid transferring it into the bank account. I was always frustrated that I couldn't spend it directly at Sephora.com and I would end up gifting it to my sister, who would give me cash. But anyway, I just discovered the website Gyft, where you can use your PP balance to buy gift cards (electronic, I believe) to stores and Sephora is one of them! After some searching, I confirmed that they they are legit. I thought this would be helpful for those of you who like to use your PP balance to buy stuff. EDIT: juicytulip just pointed out "I do the same, although here on the Sephora site you can buy an egiftcard and check out with paypal. Cuts out the middle man! I usually send the gift card to myself--obviously." Thanks lady! I was totally unaware of this. So you don't even have to go to Gyft and create an account or anything, you can go through Sephora's site.
Okay ladies and gents I'm going to VEGAS 8/27 first time ever!!! I have a list of places I want to go...makeup wise. Inglot, sephora, CCO (is the CCO worth a special trip?). Any places (makeup) I should hit, ones I should avoid? I DO NOT (just not worth it for me) do VERY high end brands. Marc Jacobs is the most expensive brand I have. I have been saving my coins for a while and now it's time to just buy buy buy. I'm NW45/MUFE 178 so I usually only buy from companies that make products for the deeper tones. It's principle for me. Post your ideas (please please please), previous adventures, and best kept secrets! I'll post what I get when I return home and decompress. May the makeup Goddesses and Gods be forever in your favor. May your holy grail products never be discontinued or in short supply. May your favorite product drop on the floor and never break. May your makeup storage be all that you dream and cleaned and organized by sweet smelling fairies. Be makeup blessed! *can you tell I'm super excited*
A little bit about my skin: I am 24 and have combination/dry skin I am currently using Philosophy Time in a Bottle as my serum and am really liking it, however I am running out of it and looking to switch it up for a bit. I just don't want my skin to get too used to Time in a Bottle since I am still young and will probably really "need" it in the future lol. I do want a serum with anti-aging benefits and hydration is always a plus. Thanks for taking the time to read this! Looking forward to reading all the suggestions
I thought it'd be fun to create a thread where we share our 'mask faces'! I'd love to see how lovely & silly you all look with masks on It'd be great if you mention the name of the mask you are using as well! I'll start things off! Tonight I am using the Lush Magnaminty mask
I always thought I did an okay job matching my foundation shades- weather in a drugstore or in a sephora. I would always swatch on my jawline and pick which one I thought matched the best. Last week, for the first time, I had the Color IQ done at a Sephora near me and holy crap I will never ever try to match my foundation on my own again. The Color IQ match really did make a huuuge difference. My face looked flawless after the right color and foundation was applied. Once my lovely tan fades (unfortunately) I will be back (albeit paler) to get my new color IQ!
I am using the Estee Lauder Doublewear Fresco 2c3 and I would love trying a foundation in another brand, I love the long wear and the semi-matte finish. I wouldn't mind the new foundation being a little more lightweight as long as it's still long wear and build-able .Please help
