BB Cream or a TM depending how much coverage I need that day, followed by a swipe a blush for some color, and a coat of mascara so my puny lashes aren't invisible. see post

Is anyone else loving the Givenchy Fall 2014 Collection?
Saw Temptalia's post a couple of days ago on the Givenchy Fall collection for this year, and it's all so beautiful -- from the packaging to the colors. I mean, look at the burgundy leather encasement for the Le Rouge lipsticks! However, the only one I will probably get is the Blush Memoire De Forme Pop Up Jelly Blush in Rose Extravagant -- am I crazy to want to drop $37 on a blush?! :-\ Yikes... However, I feel that between the color and the packaging, it's something that I can admire for a while...as long as it doesn't dry up at some point.   From Make Up 4 All blog   From Fashion Trend Seeker

Skincare in your 20's!
I just turned 22, and am starting to get a little worried about my skin aging over the next few years. I really only use: face wash/toner/occasional treatment with benzoyl peroxide (which my skin responds wonderfully to), laura mercier face polish exfoliator, spf during the day, clinique dramatically different moisturizing gel moisturizer, and occasionally an eye cream.   My skin is pretty normal, but it can be sensitive. I need a good eye cream (my problems are dark circles, and some fine lines), and a good serum that will combat early signs of aging and might as well help correct the tone of my skin too.

Sonia Kashuk 15 Year Brush Set First Impression Review
So yesterday I tested out the brushes from the brush set while I was getting ready to go out for dinner last night and I have to say I really like them. They're really soft and well made. There was a teeny bit of shedding though.   Retail Value- $40 Estimated Value per brush- $15 Estimated MSRP - $225   Pros:   Price Quality  Well made   Cons:   Exclusive to Target 2 sets per Target store Sells out quickly in store and online HTF Little bit of shedding Availability - until October if they can keep up with the demand according to SK customer service       Favorite Brushes   Contour Brush Pencil Brush Blush Brush    The contour brush is EVERYTHING!!!! It is very comparable to the NARS Ita brush (I personally think it's a lot better). I used it to contour my nose as well and I really liked the way it turned out. This brush gave me cheekbones and the sculpted effect that my Real Techniques contour brush wasn't giving me!   The pencil brush picked up a lot of color easily and in even though I barely dipped my brush in the eyeshadow I was using. I suggest tapping it off quite a bit so the color isn't so intense and you don't get a ton of fallout.   The blush brush is really nice. It picks up the right amount of blush so the most intense color will be toned down and wearable.   Least Favorite Brushes   Blending Brush Buffing Brush  Angled Multipurpose Brush   The blending brush is way too big for me personally. It was hard to blend my transition color with it due to the large size so I used my MAC 217. It does work as a cheek highlighting brush if you want a more concentrated glow on the high points of the face.   The buffing brush is a bit too dense and absorbed too much product. I used it to apply foundation and I had to use 3 pumps instead of 1. I don't know what I will use this for later.   The angled multipurpose brush was very difficult to work with for me personally. I used it to blend my concealer and it was a mess. I had to use my BB to blend the rest of my concealer. I'll play around a bit to see if I can find another use for it. I may use it for cream contouring.     Final Verdict   Overall I think this a really good set to have if you're starting out or if you're a total makeup junkie and you love LE products. This set would also make an amazing gift as well. I'm  going to play  with the brushes that I didn't like so much to find alternative uses for them or use them in conjunction with other brushes to make them work. I may end up liking them later in the future. I hope Sonia Kashuk is able to stay on top of the demand and each Target gets more than 2 per each restock and that the Target website will restock quickly as well.     I hope you all enjoy my review!

Sonia Kashuk 15 Year Anniversary Brush Set
  I don't know if any of you ladies know about this but Sonia Kashuk just came out with a LE 15 piece brush set in celebration of their 15th anniversary. I just picked up the last one in my town today during my lunch break. I personally think this is a steal. It is $40 at Target.   If you can find it, I suggest to get it right there and then because this set is sold out almost everywhere and each Target in the US and Canada each get 2 sets. Go on to Target's website and use the "find in a Target store" and click on "pick up in store" if it shows up to reserve it. Sonia Kashuk is trying to keep it in stock but it keeps selling out. This set will be available until October according to their customer service line.     If anyone wants to know how they perform, let me know and I will do a small review here on BT.

Has Anyone Tried HUM Nutrition?
Most of the supplements from HUM have high ratings on this site, but I'm wondering if anyone has tried any of them? They're pretty new on here and I usually take the reviews here with a grain of salt. In general, I don't sit on either side of the fence when it comes to supplements and if they work or not. I'd love to hear anyone's experience with these - favorable or not so much. Although I'm interested in most of them, I'm particularly intrigued by the Runway Ready set and the Daily Cleanse.

Clinique even better foundation shade issue
So, I've tried literally every single foundation, bb, cc, and tinted moisturizer that Sephora carries that fits my requirements (moisturizing, non-chemical SPF, doesn't settle into my huge pores or flaky spots, non-sticky, medium coverage) and not a single one has worked. I finally tried the Clinique Even Better foundation, however what appears to be the lightest shade (linen) is still one shade too dark for my ultra-pale skin. I really love this foundation, and I'd like to use it. Anybody have any ideas how I could make this foundation work for me?

Best product to get the most out of my waves/curls
Hi!  I want to start wearing my hair in its natural state - which is a wavey/curly mix - the problem is, I am at a loss for what hair products are the best for my curls. They're not super tight...

Q. Best body lotion for very dry skin?
Hi can anyone tell me what is the absolute best body lotion for very dry skin? Something that really works and holds moisture for quite awhile without having a bad smell or feeling sticky. I have tried so many lotions, I recently tried Aveeno's dry skin body lotion and its good but it smells like rubber to me and I do not like that plus it can be a little sticky. I have heard Cetaphil and Eucerin make some good ones as well but I wanted some advice on the feel and smell of some good options. I want to try to get one that isnt super expensive since I go through lotion like crazy as I reapply constantly through the day so I prefer a brand from the drugstore or in a big bottle.

Interested in info on Tinted Brow Gel with brush
Recently, my left brow is turning lighter than my right and I really would like to try the tinted brow gel that comes in a container like mascara. I think it may look more natural. I've tried tons of different brow pencils, but I can never get them to look right. Same with the powders and pomades. My problem - and question - is two-fold: 1st - Do these products work and look natural? Are they easy to use? I'm hoping that "tinted" doesn't mean "painted"! LOL 2nd - My brows - at least my right one - are dark brown, almost black. My hair is colored red. Should I stick with the dark or go with auburn? Help, please!!

AUGUST APPRECIATION: BEAUTY INSIDER/VIB/VIB ROUGE ?
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

Anastasia Brow Pencil vs. Brow Powder Duo
I've been using the pencil for the longest time, but got to try out a sample of the brow powder duo today and absolutely loved it. It seems easier to apply, and looks more natural (to me).
