Hi Beauty Insiders! My question regards the use of beauty brands and z-palettes. I've hopped on the z-palette bandwagon and have started to depot my makeup. Even with the "prying" tools and the use of the heating method, the pans can be hard to pry. My question is, what are some makeup brands that are easy to depot? As "conceited" as it sounds, my heart breaks a little when I crack the makeup I'm trying to get out. Thanks, IMAS
I love the color of the Sephora Collection lipliner in "pale beige", but it doesn't have anywhere near enough staying power. Are there any long-wearing lipliners (maybe one of the nars or similar) that are the same color?
I need some recommendations on a good body shimmer product similar to the Natasha Denona Body Glow. I want something to put on my shoulders, collarbone, chest, and legs for an evening awards banquet. I already checked past posts and most of the stuff that comes up on BT are temporary self-tanners. I want something thats more of a body highlighter that won't rub off on my clothes, and something I can either purchase from Sephora, Ulta, or local drugstores. The reason being, is so that I can return it if I don't like the product, and I also need the product ASAP since I am leaving on my fiancé's work convention in two weeks and I need the product for that trip. Any help would be greatly appreciated. Thanks in advance
I know for normal face masks you're supposed to cleanse first then use toner, serum, moisturizer, etc. afterwards, but what about for an overnight mask? Do you just cleanse then wear the mask overnight? I feel like this is a stupid question but I never really use face masks and was wanting to try some, including overnight ones.
Hi everyone. Whenever I set my under-eye concealer with a setting powder, I swear it changes the colour of my makeup. I can finally be ready in the morning and think that my makeup looks really nice - and then as soon as I set it, my dark under-eyes come peering back through my makeup, and sometimes even the colour of my concealer seems to have changed. I have been experiencing this problem for ages with several different translucent setting powders - Tarte, Makeup forever HD setting powder, Cinema secretes, Laura Mercier (that one made my eyes itch...) - just to name a few. At first I thought I was crazy, but I have heard other people mention experiencing the same sort of thing. I've never tried using a coloured powder, because I'm really not sure what to use... I have red hair & very fair, dry skin - I don't know if that info helps? Hopefully someone will be able to help me out here! Thanks
I have the Ciate Geltox kit and I'm running low on the cleanser, and I can't seem to find another one that works. I've tried the Formula X cleanser but this stripped the colour off my nails because of the alcohol. I need a cleanser with absolutely no alcohol in it, any suggestions?
Hey guys! I just recently washed a Morphe M527 goat hair brush (for the first time) and since I've washed it it literally smells like a goat---a barn. Help please! I don't know how to get the stench out!
I have been hearing good things about the SK II online and from friends. However, I still have more than half left of my Sunday Riley bottles. Would it be okay to add in the SK II to my regimen? Or would it be too much for my skin and just wait till I finish SR?
The models in the Clinique Pep Start ads are all very, very young. Of course their skin care needs are quite different from those of someone like me (normal to dry, deep creases and large pores, 60 years old). Does this mean Pep Start products are targeted for teenagers?
I'm looking for a sunscreen that does not have any makeup in it. I'm going to be do laser hair treatments on my face so I can't have anything on my face but the sunscreen. I'm really pale and have super sensitive skin. I don't really go outside to much because how sensitive my skin is. I start to turn red within 10 minute's of being out side even with sunblock on. Any help would be appreciated.
Okay so I'm very new to make-up. I usually just wear walmart foundation and things like that. I wanted to start to get into it and do my make-up like those girls do on those videos on Facebook and Twitter. I was just wondering if someone could give me a list of everything i would need to buy including brushes and products. Thank you!
I reside in Ontario, Canada and we're experiencing humidity which means not wearing any foundation as not only will my skin feel congested but it'll end up dripping off my face so I'm wondering if it's ok to mix a matte liquid bronzer (i.e. Benefit Dew the Hoola) with my moisturizer. Are there any Canadians out there who also can't wear foundation due to the humidity?
Hey Beauties! I'm looking for a medium to full coverage radiant, dewy or satin foundation that is good for every skin ( I used finish an acne procedure so It has be for a normal foundation), non oily since I live in an island so the heat brings up the oil and non heavy. Any suggestions?
I want to try Gimme Brow (new formula), having seen lots of great reviews, but I'm not sure if I need medium or deep. I have (rapidly graying) brown hair, with darker eyebrows, so I'm thinking deep from the way the colors look on my screen. I'm currently using Boy Brow in brown, if that helps. The color is OK, but I'm not that impressed with the product.
I liked Clinique's Age Defense BB cream a lot, but Shade 1 was too light for me. Shade 2 doesn't work either. I have light skin with neutral/pink undertones. How does the Light shade in the Acne Solutions line and the Moisture Surge line compare? The Light in the Acne Solutions BB cream looks a little darker than Shade 1 and was wondering if that is the case when actually applied. Thanks!
Hi, I just read somewhere that if a foundation is too pink for you, it will leave a white cast on your face...is this true? I've always thought that a white cast was caused by SPF or the shade just being too light or whatever is in a lot of Asian BB creams (I've tried a few Asian BB creams and they all had that white cast on me). I have light skin with neutral-pink undertones and prefer full-coverage liquid foundations or BB creams. Most shades look too yellow on me, even some neutral shades, so I tend to choose cool shades. My closest color match is Neutrogena's Healthy Skin in Natural Ivory, but that's a lousy foundation, and next best is Clinique's Beyond Foundation in Alabaster...but it does leave a white cast. Should I be avoiding pink-based foundations in the future? Thanks!
Hi! I am looking to purchase a liquid highlighter to add to foundation or as a highlighter itself to give me that summer glow. I am trying to decide between Becca Liquid Highlighter in Champagne Pop or Cover FX Custom Enhancer Drops in Moonlight or Celestial. I am quite pale and have combination skin but craving a radiant glow. I would love anyones opinions and suggestions! thanks!
anyone knows how does Too Faced | Born This Way Foundation works on combination/dehydrated skin? I really like how it covers blemishes without looking heavyI have oily skin and but dry patches on my cheekbones, in between my brows and chin. Also, i live in a country with tropical rainforest climate. How does this foundation performs in heat and high humidity? Please feel free to suggest any products (primer, foundation, setting sprays) that would be suitable for me as well!
