I'm almost at the end of my Glamglow jar and I was wondering what kind of scooping tool (makeshift or store bought I don't mind) you use to scoop up the bits stuck along the sides, bottom, and edges. It's 76$ a jar and I want to get the most out of it. I've used my fingers but there's some places I can't reach. I know Sephora used to sell one, not sure if they still do and if it actually works well for that.
I have a lot of fine, long lashes, but I have a hard time finding a mascara that doesn't make them clump together. Also, with some brands by the end of the day I have black smudges all under my eyes. I think I have oily lashes that just don't hold mascara well. I just ran out of mascara and I miss having dramatic eyelashes! Do you know a mascara I should try that won't clump or bleed?
What is a good nail colour for older hands? I am in my 60s. I know that skin colour is important (I am fair in colour). Also - I need to have the colour look 'professional'. Dark colours make my hands look older and light colours make me look like I am trying to be a "young wanna be". I have looked at the hands of other older women and haven't seen a colour that I really like yet. Thank-you
Hi. I am traveling the middle east this summer (around 100 degrees and humidity) and i am in need for some products that will help me survive the trip. I am 16 years old with combination skin and light skin. I already bought oil sheets but i still need some recommendations for foundation/BB creams/etc. and any other products you may think would be helpful. THANK YOU!
i think the sun safety kits were out the first week of May in 2014, so hoping that means that we have less than a month til they are out in 2015. Any word on a release date yet? I love the sun safety kits!!
Hi ladies I need a hair styling tool mostly for curling. I have fine and straight hair with medium thickness. My hair does not hold style easily, even with the use of products. Also I have never invested into a good tool, its about time I do so. I have been looking into the instyler or the t3 twirl 360. If you have experience of either of these or any suggestion for a good styling tool, please let me know. Thanks!
Hello, I'm wondering what people use to carry their Beauty Blenders when traveling? I'm currently using a case I found at Muji that fits the BB pretty well, but the last time I travelled, I forgot to unpack it right away when I got back, and my BB got moldy. Interested to see what travel storage solutions people have for this particular item since it needs to be wet. Thank you!
I have several non-peel facial mask products that say to leave on for X-minutes and then tissue off . What kind of tissue do they mean? Certainly not the Kleenex-type nose tissues. I've seen some discussions about oil-blotting tissue, (wrapping) tissue paper, or rice paper or other oil blotting papers, and even toilet seat covers (!). But I've never seen anything that expressly addresses what to use for these masks. Is there a product out there without powder in them, or are we suppose to make our own? Thanks!
I was looking at Cover FX drops, but need less steps as a busy new mom. My color IQ of 3Y06 matched me to Laura M Silk Creme Oil free in Beige Ivory, but that's light with neutral to warm undertones. Interesting, because in person, most pros think I'm cool undertone. I was sampled Rose Ivory and it's so pink and light. I prefer a neutral finish and was wondering if Bamboo Beige would be light enough?
Hey BT! I've been reading a bit about heated eyelash curlers and I'm starting to see a couple of people mention them on youtube. Has anyone here tried using one? If so, which one did you use? I've seen a couple of them sold by Sephora and then heard of others on the market as well. I've never been good with a typical eyelash curler and am wondering if this is something that could work for me. Also, has there been any information about how safe they are? I am just wondering how safe something that is heated can be held that close to your eye. Any insight anyone has would be greatly appreciated!
I'm attending an event next weekend and I'm trying to figure out what foundation to wear. I find that Clinique Even Better lasts the best for me when I have to be outside in the heat, but I'm scared that it'll cause flashback in photos because it has the low SPF. Has anyone had experience with this foundation causing that? Also, does anyone have suggestions for a setting powder? My skin has began to get oily around my T-zone and I don't think my MSF Natural will hold up in the heat. Thanks!
So i've been looking to get some new products because I feel like my serum was doing absolutely nothing and I just need to add a good mask. I was thinking about REN, particularly the Radiance Perfection Serum and the Glycol Lactic Radiance Renewal Mask. I went into sephora today and the BA that helped me was very nice but pretty much every product she pushed me towards was Caudalie and I actually noticed that most of the customers were being helped with Caudalie products, there were stations everywhere (I have a feeling this had something to do with Mathilde Thomas being in the store) she recommended the Cauda lie Vinosource S.O.S Thirst Quenching Serum and the Caudalie Glycolic Peel. I feel like anytime I tried to ask about comparing the two I couldn't get much of an answer. I know Caudalie is a good brand but I figured I would go to the boards! Little background on my skin... it's pretty crappy. Dry skin, finally getting over cystic acne that decided not to affect me until I hit 21 i'm now 24, dark marks due to the acne, dealing with few bumpy clogged pores on my cheek and lastly fine lines on the forehead. Anyway, any opinions on these products? Has anyone used one or both and did you like one better than the other? What kind of results did you see? Thanks!
I am in my mid 30s and I decided to splurge on the Premier Cru eye cream from Caudalie because I love the line, but unfortunately, it caused me to have milia under both eyes within a week's use and I had to stop using it. I do not have any wrinkles yet, so I want to use a good preventative eye cream to preserve my skin. Overall, my skin is oily around t-zone and combination on other parts of the face. Should I buy the Cauldalie Vinoexpert serum for the eyes and use it on its own AM and PM without any eye cream? Or should I buy the Vinosource SOS eye cream which seems much lighter than the Premiere Cru? I am also open to trying other lines as long as the product is paraben free and comes in a tube or pump, no jar. Please advise. Thanks!
I am trying to find skincare products to get my mom for Mother's Day and have no idea where to start. She is 43 years old, her skin is normal and she has sun spots/damage. Her skincare regimen as of now is cleanser, moisturizer (philosophy's hope in a jar) and sunblock if needed. I'm looking for products with anti-aging properties but nothing that will make her oily. Which products would you recommend?
Hello! So I've recently been trying to find a good foundation for my oily skin especially since the summer months are coming up. I am looking at the Immaculate Liquid Powder Foundation Mattifying Oil Free by Hourglassbut while watching some reviews I heard that it tends to cling to your facial hairs which is not very peaking to me; I also heard that it is for mature skin and I am a young lady so I'm not sure if it would work, I do like the fact that everyone said it keeps you completely matte all day. I've also been looking at the tarte Amazonian Clay 12-hour full coverage liquid foundation but I've heard that does control oil. I've also looked I to the NARS sheer glow but don't think that would be suitable for my skin type. I am a cruelty free consumer and need some help, do you think the Hourglass foundation would work for me?
There's no Color IQ for Cover FX drops, but I was matched at P20 by my neck- which I think makes me look washed out and too pink. My pic should be attached of the P20. I'd like to do N20, or even N25 since I think I look so pale in 20. My color IQ is 3y06 and says I'm Light Med Olive in Ardency- which makes no sense because I am Alabaster (2nd to lightest color) in Clinque Stay Matte. I was thinking Light Beige for this brand. I'm trying to decide between the two based on which is best for my sensitive skin, oily t-zone, patchy dry spots and for long wear. I've been wearing the Cover FX for about 4 hours, and it already seems to be breaking up. Help, please.
So I'm stuck in a rut trying to figure out if I should continue with my current Origins regimen or try something new, such as Belif. I have combination oily skin. I'm currently using from Origins the Checks & Balances face wash, Zero Oil Toner, Gin-zing Moisturizer, and Original Skin serum. My face just doesn't feel the greatest after I'm done my routine aka my acne is still evident and my nose is still shiny. Should I switch to Belif, if so what should I use? Or should I keep using Origins and maybe switch a few products? Please help! <3
I am not a sensitive skin person and never have this problem before. Lately I have been getting a burning feeling after using all kind of moisturizers (FAB, origins, etc.). I mean FAB is supposed to sooth my skin. Can someone tell me why?
Hello, I have been searching avidly everywhere online in USA and beyond, for the "Philip B Blue Spray (Skin Cooling Mist)" .. has been discontinued by Philip B, but is still available at some stores.. Any ideas where I can check, or, does anyone know of a product that is comparable to this? Seriously helps bone Cancer & chronic pain (the aromatherapy qualities).. thank you for any ideas/thoughts/help/knowledge that you may have... God Bless You ~LyndsieDee
I am new to this atomizer thing and want help about how to clean it to eliminate all the smell of perfume that was filled in it so it don't compromise the smell of a different fragrance that I want to fill in it..... Thanks
I found my color iq by using the foundation from Sephora 10 hr foundation in delicate beige (p) which gave me the color iq 1R03. The color matches good but is not long wearing and I hate that it transfers so much. I want to get the Smashbox studio skin 15 hr foundation. I have heard it's a great foundation for summer and I really want it but nothing comes up when I put in the color iq 1R03. Please help me find the best color for me in that foundation so I can order it online tomorrow.
Hey there. I'm on the market for a new foundation. My T-zone gets super oily and then my makeup slides around and that's not cute. I use an oil control primer and a setting spray so that's not the issue I don't think. I try blotting with sheets or powder, but when it's so oily - sometimes it just all comes off or it cakes instead and it just makes it worse. I have enjoyed Estée Lauder Double Wear and Double Wear Light, but sometimes I really don't like how...plastic-y it feels on my face. Even when applied lightly with a Beauty Blender instead of a brush it still feels that way. With summer coming up, I don't know if I can handle it. Other foundations that I have tried that feel nice on my face but don't hold up to the grease pool currently in my graveyard include: Clinique Superbalanced Lioele Triple the Solution BB Cream Benefit Hello Flawless Clarins Ever Matte Sephora Teint Infusion Clinique Even Better Lancome Teint Idole Ultra Maybelline Fit Me Matte + Poreless Makeup Forever Matte Velvet+ Stila Natural Finish Lioele Dollish BB Cream Skin79 hot pink BB Cream And I'm sure there's more I've tried but I don't have. Got any suggestions? Willing to budget whatever as long as it will work well. Or is there anything maybe I could mix with the Estée Lauder to alter the texture? Thanks!
