Hi there, I have two days left (they hold your spot for 72 hours) to subscribe for Birchbox, if I want to. The thing is, I don't know if I want to or not! I know it's just $10 a month, but is it worth it? A few months of Birchbox could, after all, buy me something I'm sure to like...so I'm torn. Any advice would be much appreciated, especially from those of you who subscribe or have in the past. Thanks! PS After reading some previous posts similar to mine, I'm leaning towards no...
My too faced chocolate bar palette arrived (like a half hour ago), and I just wanted to share my opinion for those considering it. Overall, I've seen some good reviews online, however there were some people that were kind of iffy on some of the shade formulations. I briefly swatched my palette and have to say I'm pretty impressed. Now remember I haven't actually worn it on my eyes yet though...but swatching, most of the shadows were really soft and buttery, definitely have great pigment. The only shadows that I think had a slightly drier texture were the ones with the micro glitter in them (candied violet, black forest truffle, and cherry cordial) . The metallic and mattes are excellent. The texture of the three micro glitters I mentioned is not a deal breaker for me, and most likely for my purposes those colors would be more of accent colors as opposed to the ones that carry the palette. One last note though is that you have to be a fan of browns for this to please you. Even swatching, I was having trouble discerning the differences of the shades unless I inspected closely....for example Hazelnut, Haute Chocolate, and Amaretto looked very similar to me at first. However when swatching them together I saw Amaretto has a slightly pinkish sheen to it and the other two are gold and bronze sheens. If you want a good collection of browns this is your set.
'Tis the season of engagements. That, plus kellsmuneoka's thread about Ridiculous Prices and IllegallyBlonde's Engagement Rings thread, made me start wondering about wedding dresses. If you're married, what was your dress like? If not, what is your dream dress? How much are you willing to spend? I'd love to hear your thoughts! Although I'm engaged, I haven't even started looking for a dress because we won't start planning the wedding until my fiance moves up here...but that should be happening soon! My research has now begun by watching marathons of Say Yes to the Dress lol. Anyway, rant and rave away!
I have never owned a high-end eye shadow palette and I would like to treat myself to one this year. There are so many to choose from. Can anyone please suggest a good one? I am blonde, fair, and have green eyes. I am 45 and usually stick to neutral colors. Thanks!
So, I'm about to throw in the towel and accept the fact that there are only good men in television, books, and movies. Before I do, I want to throw it out there and see what you ladies have to say. Especially, if you have a good one. I'd love to read some inspirational stories of good husbands or boyfriends. I'm not feeling very optimistic right now and I know there have to be other ladies who feel the same.
So, what is everyone's favorite polish remover? I'm looking for suggestions because my nails have been peeling like crazy, and I'm guessing my polish remover has something to do with it. It's a never ending cycle because my polish chips quickly because of the peeling, and then it gets dried out even more from the remover. Help!
So I realized the other day I was $50 away from obtaining VIB status. Today I went into SiJCP and spent about $25 (trying to save money for a big shopping trip my sisters and I will be doing the day after Christmas. I plan on doing a large haul, then). Anyway, my points have updated from my purchase from today, everything I bought is showing up in my beauty bag, but it still says I'm $50 away from VIB status... Does this take longer to update?
What is the best make-up colors and brands for a teenager with porcelain pale skin, red hair, and blue eyes. She usually wears her make-up light and she likes easy and quick application make-up. She doesn't have any skin issues that I know of. I am new to this site and do not know a lot about make-up so all advice is appreciated. Thanks so much!
I purchased the Benefit Advent Calendar through Sephora and as some of you know, I ended up receiving the wrong product on day 1 of the calendar (should've got a coralista blush and instead got the a-lister gloss). I spoke with a customer service representative from Sephora and they suggested I speak with Benefit since it was clearly an issue during the processing phase at Benefit. For the record, Sephora offered me a refund but since they were sold out of the calendars that was my only option and I really did want to keep the calendar. So I contacted Benefit. They immediately tried to pass the buck off to Sephora and say that it was their problem. So off I go again talking to Sephora. The customer service representative from Sephora was wonderful! She contacted Benefit on my behalf and offered them proof of purchase for me in hopes that they would be able to assist me. Back to Benefit once again, I spoke directly with a manager. I told him that I didn't want money, or a brand new calendar, or to make out like a bandit. I just wanted the coralista blush sample that they manufacture and that I should've got in my set to begin with.I had already e-mailed them a picture of my missing item and the item I got in it's place (on the day I should've got the a-lister gloss, the door was empty). I then gave the manager my order number from Sephora (to again, prove I purchased this legitimately) and I mentioned the Sephora representative who contacted them on my behalf. Again, Benefit claimed there was nothing that they can do. I told him that they obviously don't stand behind their product as there was a mistake on their end and they weren't even willing to make it right (I even offered to pay shipping for them to send me the itty-bitty blush)! So because they were unwilling to remedy this situation and wanted to hold on to a blush that cost them a miniscule amount to make, they will lose out on much more since I will no longer be a Benefit shopper. Sorry for the long rant, but bad customer service is something I can't stand and think people should know about.
I am over 40 and my sensitive skin has JUST settled down enough that I am ready to try something more than a tinted BB cream and blush. Any recommendations for hydrating, but oil free foundation and concealer? How can I get good coverage using these products that looks light and fresh and not cakey?
At work this morning all the employees are passing around this envelope so one of them can go drive 2 hours away to purchase lotto tickets (mega millions). I think I was the only one that didn't put any money in it. Personally, I wouldn't want to win the lottery. Too much greed and spoiled lives, not to mention the bickering between family and friends. That's ok I'll pass and live contently not having to worry which charity or people I would give away my winnings to. Talk about a stress factor, then again you could have a lifetime supply of Sephora products! Do you think having a business doing the "lotto run" together is a nay or a yay? What about yourself, do you buy tickets or are you oppose to it?
I have been using the Tinted Beauty Balm (in Snow Glow) from Too Faced, and I have really liked it. I have also recently bought the Nars pressed powder (in Flesh) and like that a lot as well. Now I am out of Beauty Balm and I am wondering whether I should repurchase or try the Nars Tinted Moisturizer with the pressed powder. I am looking for light coverage that will even out my skin tone without looking cakey or irritating my sensitive skin. What are the pros/cons of each? Which one would you recommend? If I go for Nars, which shade will best match my fair skin?
This winter my under eye's have been very dry. Currently i am using Origin's Ginzeng eye cream in the morning but through out the day, my under eyes gets very dry. I am looking for a suggestion of a good eye cream that is hydrating and it will help with my dryness. Thank you
Does anyone have any idea(s) how to retrain nails to grow straight? Over the past year, I've noticed that my nails tend to have 'bends' in them. Like on my left point-finger: the tip grows straight on the left side yet curls slightly and bends downward on the right side. My nail beds look healthy and there are no indications of a fungus, thankfully. I bought a glass file a few months ago thinking maybe it was improper filing, and clipped my nails back to about 1/8" - 1/4" tips. I've maintained this process for roughly 3 months and they continue to grow with bends. Sooo frustrated...
So i was a bit scared to order from Sephora online and to go to another city's mall (I have no sense of direction) but I worked up the nerve and ordered online then worked up the nerve to go out of town to this huge mall, that's an hour away. This started in October lol... So I have placed everything I got in one of the boxes I got from an Sephora order. Sounds a bit strange right? I figured I wait till it was right full - then i'll open it. It's almost full *i'm kinda excited hehe*
Where you finally know what you want? (even if it's somewhat vague) I had one of those today. I know that I want: to go to school (i turned 26 in the fall but better late then never) a truck ( yeah, i'm 5"3 but whatever ) to fix my credit and get a credit card again to learn how to skate well to learn how to play the violin to stick to a healthy way of eating (so those extra pounds with come off) a new fashionable wardrobe (in a smaller size ^) and more make up What do you want? (It can be anything )
I really love Dior Brow styler- for the natural look it gives my sparse brows. But at $38 I have to go through at least 4 a year. Any alternative suggestions that will do the trick for my overplucked medium/light brunette brows? Have tried powders, they look too cake-y. Need a thin pencil/gel combo. Please help!
I have a very sensitive skin and slightly oily.. Please help me by suggesting face wash, toner, moisturizer for day and night and night cream.. Products that are not too expensive would be extra nice.. Thank you!
Is there really such a thing as "curling" mascara? I have tried NUMEROUS mascaras and have been using Urban Decay's Supercurl Curling mascara, which seems to be working pretty well with curled lashes. In the past, even when I curled my lashes with a curler that I heated with the hair dryer, when the mascara was applied my lashes went straighter!! Is there some trick that I'm missing? I have black, pretty thick, but straight lashes. thanks for your help, MamaCa
I noticed in the photo of the upcoming Ariel set that the polishes are not Sephora by OPI like the first two princesses. Now it looks like all of the polishes are 1/2 price. I am really trying not to buy anything right now, especially polish, but there is at least one color that I'd like to have if they're not going to be making these any more.
