sigma brushes!
Hi ladies, I know they have other threads about sigma ,but I'm just wondering if I should get them or it'll be a waste of money. Jaclyn Hill loves them although she gets paid to rave about them and I wanted to get a set but I'm not sure which one to get! Which one would you suggest? I contour and highlight a lot & do my eyes all the time. What's your favorite sigma brushes?  TIA.    xoxo, Kelly     P.S has anyone tried morphe brushes? A lot of beauty gurus on instagram have been using them + they're super cheap so they caught my eye.

any fragrances that has musk - ey scent?
I've been obsessed with body shop's white musk body butter and bought their body mist and perfume  But they seem to last not even for 10minutes...  Is there a perfume with a similar scent that lingers around for longer? Maybe a Jo malone one that I haven't tried? (Only had their peony and rose ones)

Driving from Florida to California. Help me pack!
I leave the 5th of May and fly home the 11th. My friend is moving out to San Diego and has asked me to join her for the drive over there. I need to pack relatively light.  I usually bring almost everything with me when I travel so I definitely need help choosing what I bring/buy for the trip!

What skincare routine are you following for the summer?
I see so many pretty faces in makeup, but I'm wondering what you have on underneath that. I'm still deciding what the get for summer and I want to see what the more seasoned insiders are using for skincare. Here's what I'm currently using:   Morning   PTR anti-aging cleanser   Murad active radiance serum   Murad essential-C daily moisturizer   Night   Garnier charcoal scrub (just on nose and chin)   PTR ant-aging cleanser   Murad rapid age spot and pigment lightening serum   FAB ultra repair cream   Fresh seaberry face oil   So this is what I'm doing, I can't wait to see everyone else's routines! P.S. If you have any suggestions for summer skincare let me know.

Bride in need of help!
Hey everyone, I am in serious need of foundation ideas for my wedding.  I have combination skin, but after wearing almost any foundation for more than 3 or 4 hours my face is shiny everywhere to the point where powder cannot even help it.  I usually use Clinique Stay-Matte foundation, but I was wondering if anyone had any different idea for a foundation that would not cause me to become oily after a few hours.   Any thoughts and suggestions would be appreciated because it is a destination wedding and the make-up artist won't have time to do a trial run, so I need to make sure to bring the correct foundation with me.

How do you apply your Guerlain meteorites?
As I became more and more addicted to Guerlain Meteorites, and acquires more and more pearls, I've started to think about possible sanitary issue. The thing is, powder last a long time not only because it's dry but it's easy to sanitize. You can't really sanitize the Meteorites perles, so while I use the same brush every morning with the same powder for a week or so before I wash it.......should I use a clean brush every time with Meteorites???   And am I the only one tempted to pour some meteorites into a smaller jar so I'm only "contaminating" a little bit at a time as I'm using them?

I looked this up in Search and I couldn't find this topic.... First Perfume?
I was going on Fragrance.com to see if I could grab up some stuff with my 20% coupon.  When doing a search, I came across my first perfume ever!  Love's Baby Soft!!!  I can't believe that it's still kicking around.  Back in the 80's when I had my spiked green/blue hair and goth look perfected, I would never leave home without a little spritz here and there.  I'm kinda shocked that they still sell it.  It was $6.99 a bottle back then now it's apparently gone up to 12.19!  What memories...   So, what was your first perfume?

Wayne Goss's tip on applying foundation is really interesting....
  I am so gonna try this!!   This trick will hold your foundation in place all day. No excess post powdering. It will also fill in pores and some fine lines! I KNOW! We've been told to powder after foundation, and this makes total sense. And it works. But what works really well is to powder before foundation. After moisturiser and primer THEN YOU POWDER. Then you apply foundation OVER THE POWDER! This will fill in pores. But what it will do is keep your foundation in place all day. If you have dry skin you will not need to powder your foundation after. You can just leave it. For those with very oily skin you will need a touch of powder on the t-zone only. Give it a go. Let me know what you think and the results Oh and thumbs up! Thank you!

How can I dye my medium brown hair blonde?
I have medium brown hair similiar to the picture below I really want to go blonde like this:   How can I do that without completely destroying my hair or having it come out orange?   I take fairly good care of my hair, I deep condition it once a week and use a repairing conditioner on other days and I use a clarifying shampoo once a week. My hair is quite soft and healthy looking now, I don't want to dye it and have it be brittle and dead looking. Also, what is the best way to dye my hair blonde and have it look natural?

MAC Collections
MAC seems to be on a rolling out so many collections, but they have been pretty underwhelming...although I usually pick up one or two things. Of all the previews that are floating around, I am most excited about the Pedro Lourenco collection, it looks so classic and I can never resist when they package in black and gold! I think second on my list is the Alluring Aquatics, although that packaging I could do without. What are on your guys lists?

Sooooo, had a few too many drinks at dinner earlier. Came home chatted with my beloved fellow makeup junkies for a bit. Then I put on makeup. Drunk. Sobered up. Laughed at myself because omg what the what!!!!! I love kat Von ds makeup removing wipes!  All harm erased in a couple seconds! Does anyone else just randomly decide to apply makeup right before bed? Seriously, I put it on just to look horrific and took it off all in the same 30 minutes!

Did Anyone Else Snag The MAC Proenza Schouler Blush in Ocean City?
MAC's Proenza Schouler collection went live today. I thought it would go live at midnight so I waited until about 3am until I drifted off to sleep. I woke up today to numerous messages from some BT pals telling me that the collection went live about 9am. Of course, I slept through these messages and by the time I saw them, the Ocean City blush I wanted was sold out. Luckily, I was able to order it on backorder so I'll be getting it in early May. I just want to know if anyone else was able to buy this blush before it sold out?   Here's a picture of the prettiness:

THURSDAY questions!!
Only one more day until TGIF! Here are some questions to hold you over   1. What beauty brands do you know of that are releasing new collections soon? 2. Does anyone own a Nutribullet? Ever tried using one?( I am considering buying one and I wanted some feedback) 3. What 2 pairs of shoes do you find you wear the most? Styles and brands? 4. What is your current favorite drink? Besides water of course! 5. How many times a week do you use a face mask? What kinds? Brands? 6. Have you ever meet anyone in person that you first met through BT? 7. 2 Favorite nail polish colors to wear? Brands and colors please.   My answers:   1. Bite Beauty has those tinted lip balms which I think are already available now, but I'm super excited to try them! 2. My friend owns one and it seems like such a great product, but it costs $99 so I wanted to be sure it was awesome before I spent the money. 3. My floral Keds and my Black bow flats from Sam & Libby. 4. I am all about chamomile tea right now! 5. Twice; I used the Origins charcoal mask and the Glamglow supermud every other week. 6. Nope, but I met someone based on a recommendation made by someone on BT, my hair colorist. 7. Essie Ballet slippers and Julep Oxygen formula...which is funny because they look really similar.
