The 15% off at Sephora is still going on, as well as great promos at a couple other places. I'm trying SO hard not to break my wallet so I'll live vivaciously through y'all's hauls until end of the month. If you are an April baby, don't forget to take advantage of the numerous b-day offerings everywhere(sometimes it take a few days after signing up to get the offer): http://community.sephora.com/t5/Beauty-Insider/Bir thday-Gifts-and-Promos-from-Cosmetic-Companies/m-p ... And of course, before you place an order, don't forget to check the current perks and promo threads that will rob you of all your points and will power: http://community.sephora.com/t5/VIB/Active-Promo-C odes-8-The-quot-I-hope-I-don-t-get-into-trouble/td ... http://community.sephora.com/t5/VIB/Active-List-of -100-Point-Perks/td-p/869671 http://community.sephora.com/t5/VIB/Active-List-of -250-500-and-Male-Point-Perks/td-p/869679 And ebates or whatever rebate website you are using. So what did you get this month?
Hi everyone! So I started a thread recently asking about sunscreen because I am going to buy a sunscreen to use as my daily mositurizer. However, what I did like about the current mositurizer I use is that it helped treat dark spots and keeps me relativley pimple/blemish free. So does anyone know of a night cream that treats dark spots? Keeping in mind I have oily skin, and while not hyper sensitive, some things randomly could break me out. Thanks all!!
When the day X comes, I always have one or two deep zits on my face, and it's super annoying, I think you all know how I use origins gel for spot treatment, but I feel it's not doing a very good job. I'm sitting with my Origins "out of trouble" mask at the moment, hoping it might help , and I decided to ask you, guys, what are your favorite ointments/products for this problem? I'm looking for something that doesn't require a doctor's prescription.
So I recently purchased Urban Decays Electric palette. The colors are so gorgeous and oh so pigmented! I've been playing a lot with it and end up looking pretty comical at times with some of the rainbow looks I've come up with. I can't seem to accept wearing less than four shades at a time! Lol! Has anyone got any pictures of multiple color looks that aren't too over the top? Or do I have to accept using two or three shades?

I've seen women who can wear a full face of make up while working out - foundation, eyeliner, everything! I wouldn't wear any myself, because I frankly sweat like a pig and looking pretty/decent/presentable/human is probably the last thing on my mind, but I do marvel the ladies who can look so put together even when they're running or doing reps. I'm really curious how their makeup stays put. I can barely get my eyeliner to stay even when I'm not exercising and not end up with raccoon eyes! :/ (I'm a totally new makeup noob, btw....) Any workout goddesses want to share their secrets?
I was recently allergy tested at my allergy dr. They did the patch test (true test) where they put the patches on your back. I tested positive for parabens, fragrances & balsam of peru. Those things are in practically everything!! Luckily I'm not terribly symptomatic. I was mainly wanting to find out what face skincare/cosmetics ingredients I may be allergic to, since I've been keeping a log of potential problem ingredients. My skin is acne prone and sensitive. It has a tendency to get red and irritated looking (which I thought was just due to acne, but now know that allergies may be playing a role too). I don't really use skin lotions (aside from sunscreen), body butters, etc. I'll wear fragrances/perfumes every so often, and haven't noticed any reactions. I use hand cream somewhat frequently and every so often I'll get a rash, but it isn't too often. My question is, how closely should I adhere to not using products with parabens, fragrances, & balsam of peru?? I'm thinking I should just avoid certain products if I notice a reaction on my body. But for my face, maybe I should completely avoid those ingredients? What about shampoos & hair products? My scalp doesn't really get itchy, but I do tend to notice my hair falls out pretty easily. Could that be due to an allergic reaction? Isn't fragrance in almost all high-quality shampoos?? Any help is appreciated! Thank you!
My Local Sephora is usually fantastic, never had a complaint about them... until today. I returned 5 products in-store today.. from 4 separate purchases I made during spring fling. 2 unused and unopened... and 3 products I really disliked. So the teller calls over the manager because it is a larger return, which I totally understand.. The manager looks at me and says.. You want to return all of these, you used them all.. and are returning them? Don't you know you can get samples so you don't waste so much product." and gives me an eye roll and a condescending look. So I tell her that 2 are unused and the other 3 products were all skin care and did not work for my skin.. I thought used products that didn't work were able to be returned.. Is this not the case? Or does everyone, get a lecture when they return a product used? Curious if you guys make returns of used products? I personally am really turned off getting samples from jars and such because people are constantly putting their dirty hands in to the product and them I am supposed to put that on my face. Just a gross thought for me. Am I wrong in returning used Skincare?
Okay, so I changed my mind! I need an Hourglass blush... I am only allowing myself to purchase one however, and I can't make up my mind! I've narrowed it down to two colors... Diffused Heat and Radiant Magenta. I originally had my heart set on Diffused Heat, but then I saw swatches of Radiant Magnta -- and it isn't as in-your-face bright pink as I thought! And now I'm wondering if Diffused Heat would turn orangey on my warm skintone. I have light-medium skin with yellow undertones (my current foundation of choice is 2Y06 in Sephora's Color IQ). Which of these two shades would be more suitable for my skintone? Update: I just placed an order with Space.NK for Radient Magenta If I like it, I'll probably end up getting Diffused Heat as well, eventually! Thanks to everyone who provided me with their opinion... hearts for all of you!
I start noticing my fine lines around my eyes become more visible recently after a long sickness,,,,, so I am looking for an effective and affordable eye treatment.Origins Plantscription anti aging eye treatment has really good reviews,,,,Does any one of you has used it ,what are your thoughts,or if you suggest any other anti aging eye treatment ?????
Are any of you clean freaks? I absolutely hate it when my products get dirty. I hate when I have to pour foundation out and it gets around the mouth of the bottle and I can't clean every last bit of it and it just ends up dirtying the entire inside of the cap. I also hate getting concealer around the opening and dirty mirrors from powder fallout.
I was so good during the Spring 15% off event but fragrances are my weakness! And now that REPLICA Jazz Club is available I cannot revisit the siren call! Planning to get any new perfumes 4/24 thru 5/11?
I just received an email from Hourglass that their Ambient Lighting Palette (with incandescent light) is back. Does anyone know if this means it's a permanent part of their collection, or is it LE yet again? What do you think? I have to say I'm disappointed it's not a blush trio or an ambient bronzing trio but this is still amazing because it's three shades of ambient lighting powder that I don't own. EDIT: refinery29 confirms that this palette is a permanent part of the Hourglass cosmetics line! Still awaiting confirmation from Hourglass!

I always use NARS (fiji) powder foundation SPF 12 but its sold out EVERYWHERE for some odd reason!? I absolutely love NARS fiji is my perfect color match but I am in desperate need of a new powder and sense I can't get NARS anytime soon.... Any suggestions on some other good brands I was thinking Chanel but I don't know? I also wonder what would be the color match for other brands for me any suggestions? Oh and I am 21 with semi dry skin if that info helps.
hey dolls! I thought it would be fun to share our instagram's for those of who share beauty photo's and makeup pics a lot and who are okay with that, (if you are not or are not comfortable with sharing your username, its totally okay!) I personally love waking up and seeing all my girly friends makeup selfies and OOTD (outfit of the day) and since Ive grown so close with all of you, Id like to see that too. I just thought it was a fun idea and hopefully y'all will get in the jam! here are a few of my favorite instagram beauty pics. if y'all would like to follow me my instagram is @londonlover101_ cant wait to hear and see y'all! peace and love,skye <3 p.s please comment if you have an instagram or website dedicated to beauty,fashion,food or more, I would love to hear!
Its on the site now, The design of the item is awesome. Seeing that its a magnetic closure is awesome. Btw the description said this is the 30th anniversary item for Guerlain.... And resisting this temptation is the worst.
I have really bad skin. I need help with trying to clear my skin up because I have lots of acne. Also I have some what oily skin but I have dry patches. What skin product can help and make up products?
I entered a TooFaced contest on Twitter and actually won! It's a Better Than Sex mascara, nothing crazy but I am so excited to have won anything, and I've been eyeing this mascara. Do you enter giveaways or have ever won something exciting? The picture I used that "won" is my profile picture, me holding Glamour to Go II
