Lipstick or lip gloss
Hi my dear friends, as a man I don't know much about lipstick, so I have seen many postings showing what they're wearing and they wear both lipstick and colored lip gloss - why?

Generally it's for texture/color layering.   For texture: Adding a gloss on top can smooth everything out and, of course, make things shinier. A gloss may have glitter... see post

I know I won't do this again!
As most of you know, I have a daughter who's 21 months old (2 years in October!  Ack!)  So naturally, I usually put my wallet and checkbook (along with a lip color or two) into her diaper bag instead of carrying that AND my purse with me everywhere.  I've been sick with side effects from the antibiotics I've been on for the past week and so haven't gone anywhere, but my car has been sitting outside instead of normally in our garage.   You can see what's coming, can't you?   I finally got the diaper bag out last night.   I had FIVE lip colors in the bag.   I should mention it's been at least 80 degrees in the Pacific Northwest for the last week or so.  Two of the colors were lip gloss, so no harm done.  The other three?  Nars Lip Pencil in New Lover, Clinique Intense Moisturizing Chubby Stick in Roundest Raspberry, and Dior Lip Glow.   The Clinique and Dior were brand new, only been used a couple of times.  Popped all of them in the fridge overnight and they're okay now, but...yeah.  Lesson learned.  DON'T LEAVE ANY LIP COLORS IN THE DIAPER BAG!

Messed Up/Funny/Off-The-Wall things makeup sales associates, aestheticians, etc have said you
I was just looking through the "What Are You Wearing" thread and looking through the list of products I suddenly realized I very rarely use concealer under my eyes anymore. It used to be one those "will not leave the without it" items. It got me thinking back to a moment many, many, MANY years ago at a Clinique counter...   I can't remember what I was shopping for (probably super double face powder because that was my HG back then. I think I was around 20 when this story happened - I'm 39 now for reference.) So anyway, the sales lady was trying to upsell me on a bunch more products of course (which, I was 20 and in college - good luck getting blood from that stone, lady) and this is what she said to me word-for-word:   "Honey, you're gorgeous but those dark circles are distracting me from the rest of your face."   Whhaaaaattt??? I honestly can't remember how I reacted or if I bought the product I went in for originally. I know that I did NOT buy any concealer though!    Have a couple more to post but BT is being super iPad unfriendly lately!   I don't want to open up any wounds with this post. Just hopefully dumb stuff SAs have said to you that you can look back on and laugh about now!

Most used products and the ones we always repurchase!
I am sure we all have some products that we use the most and then we "run" to Sephora (or other stores) to repurchase and stock up on it, with a thought - "Just in case or I am about to finish up my other one, so I might as well pick up a back up now... etc" .    What are your most used products, the ones you know you'll go and repurchase no matter what?    Mine are: - Anastasia Brow Wiz -  ohh boy - this is one of my little fave things that I use the most and I buy few of them a year, just because I use it so often. - Nars Creamy Consealer - does its job, so smooth and gives me the coverage I need! - When Travelmate face masque <3 - so amazing, portable, and  travel safe/mess free!!

My Sephora Makeup Application
So today, I went in for a makeup application just for fun in the Appleton, Wi Sephora. The woman who I had (I feel so angry that I didn't catch her name) was wonderful. She listened to what I wanted as well as helped me out a bit with some skincare. It made the experience very enjoyable. What made her happy was the fact that I was more than willing to let her do what they wanted. It gave her time to express herself with a clean canvas and be creative in her mind. I figure that it is one of the keys to a successful makeup application, to one which isn't successful.  This look isn't something that I normally would have done however, I might end up doing it more often.   Anyways, pictures are below.

I Shop at Sephora, My Friends Don't?
I normally shop at Sephora alone for my retail therapy but was in a mall with my friends and we stopped in. My friend couldn't believe the prices, she kept saying how she can get a product like this or that at the drugstore. I tried not to engage in the conversation because it was making me feel a little guilty. I understand she has kids and I don't so I have the extra money to buy what I want but should I feel guilty about it? I choose my items carefully and some with some online research, I don't just but things because they are there. I feel like I can't shop with my friends there in the future because I wouldn't know what to say when they make those comments. Anyone else run into the same thing? What to do about it if it happens?

Why do you buy high end products?
This thought popped into my head this morning and I asked myself, "why do  i buy high end products?" I buy a few high end products because there's more options, finishes, and shades to choose from.    Do you shop high end because of the different shades and options? or is it because you like brand name products?

What "flaw" do you love?
Even though we are all gorgeous, we also have flaws. That's what makes us unique! There are some flaws that I have, such as an eternally ruddy complexion, that I really hate. But sometimes I think it's good to realize how beautiful our flaws are. That being said, what "flaw" do you love about yourself, beauty and non-beauty?   My favorite beauty "flaw" is that on my right eye, I have one eyelash that droops down. No matter what I do to it, it won't straighten up or come out. But I've come to love it, because I think it gives my look a touch of character.    My favorite non-beauty "flaw" about myself is that I am awkward. I used to embarrass myself to the point that I avoided talking to anyone, but a few months ago my best friend told me that I had to go see this movie called "Frozen," (lol) because, as she put it, "You ARE the one girl in it." After I saw the movie and fell in love with Anna, I realized that awkward can be cute.     I'd love to hear what you think!

First Day of Summer: Warm Weather Beauty Essentials!
It is finally the first day of Summer. Yay! Summer is by far my favorite season. I love warm weather, sunshine and of course all of the makeup and fun beauty products that I get to pull out of my collection to use. I thought in honor of the first day of summer, we should discuss everyone's favorite beauty essentials for the warmer months! I'll go first   1. What is your favorite nail polish for the summer? Or your favorite color family to wear during warmer months?  2. What is your must have bronzer for the summer? 3. What is your must have facial highlighter? 4. Are there any special eyeshadows or eyeliners you only wear during the warmer months? 5. What is your must have lip product during this time of year? 6. Any favorite self tanner? 7. What is your most-loved sunscreen?    1. For nail polish, I have been pretty obsessed with the Formula X nail polish in Pyrotechnic! It is the perfect bright red for this time of year and this stuff seriously never chips. I also really love corals! Next polish on my list is the Liberty Top Coat! I'll get this one in time for the upcoming fourth of July holiday!  http://www.sephora.com/product/productDetail.jsp?k eyword=pyrotechnic&skuId=1547397&productId=P382111 ...   http://www.sephora.com/liberty-top-coat-P387130?sk uId=1592690 2. I love Benefit's Hoola year round, but in the summer I pull out T arte's Park Avenue Princess! It is a little bit warmer than Hoola and has a bit of shimmer so it's perfect at giving my skin a little more of a sun-kissed glow!     http://www.sephora.com/mineral-powder-bronzer-P998 09?skuId=828772 3. I love Laura Mercier's Matte Radiance Baked Powder in Highlight 01! It is very finely milled and blends into the skin beautifully!      http://www.sephora.com/matte-radiance-baked-powder -compact-P379031?skuId=1522184   4. I always pull out my Urban Decay Eyeshadows in Half Baked and Baked in the warmer months. I also love wearing turquoise and teal eyeliners during this time of the year! My favorites are Urban Decay's 24/7 Eyeliner in Deep End and Sephora Collection's Retractable Waterproof Eyeliner in 17 Turquoise.    http://www.sephora.com/eyeshadow-P309813?skuId=140 2627 http://www.sephora.com/24-7-glide-on-eye-pencil-P1 33707 http://www.sephora.com/product/productDetail.jsp?k eyword=SEPHORA%20COLLECTION%20Retractable%20Waterp ... 5. I am obsessed with Dior's Addict Gloss in 433 Dèlice! It is a beautiful peachy shade that has very fine shimmer! I also like that this gloss is not sticky at all.   http://www.sephora.com/product/productDetail.jsp?k eyword=dior%20delice%20gloss&skuId=1495605&product ... 6. For the face, I love the Dr. Dennis Gross Alpha Beta Glow Pads. These never make me break out and give a very natural looking tan to my face! For the body, I am very loyal to the Sephora Collection's Tinted Self-Tanning Body Mist! It smells like the beach and is also makes my skin very soft!       http://www.sephora.com/product/productDetail.jsp?k eyword=DR.%20DENNIS%20GROSS%20SKINCARE%20Alpha%20B ... http://www.sephora.com/product/productDetail.jsp?k eyword=SEPHORA%20COLLECTION%20Tinted%20Self-Tannin ...   7. For sunscreen, I have really been loving Supergoop! Antioxidant-Infused Sunscreen Mist With Vitamin C Broad Spectrum SPF 50. I made the switch to spray sunscreens this year and I never get burned anymore! It is so quick to reapply my sunscreen when I'm outside, I actually look forward the cooling mist.     http://www.sephora.com/antioxidant-infused-sunscre en-mist-with-vitamin-c-broad-spectrum-spf-50-P3790 ...   I can't wait to read everyone's answers!

Thursday Questions!
Haven't seen these done in a while!   Questions: 1. What is your favourite song right now? 2. What is your current go-to summer drink? 3. Do you have any goals for this summer? 4. What's one thing you wish you could pull off, but can't for whatever reason? 5. What is your guilty pleasure?   My answers: 1. Love Don't Die by The Fray. It also helps that I'm seeing them next month, so that's all I've been listening to. haha. 2. I love fruity sangria, preferably red or champagne versions! 3. I'd like to get back into the habit of eating from local farmers markets and also finish the raised garden in my backyard for next year's crops. 4. I wish I could pull off the shooties (shoe booties). Because I'm so pale and short, it cuts off my leg and I look stumpy.  5. My guilty pleasure(s) are video games, makeup (duh), and chips. Preferably ketchup or all dressed!

Would you want someone to tell there's an issue with their makeup?
I had an end-of-the-day meeting with someone from a different department today.  She's a bigwig, so she was wearing nice clothes, good shoes, and some really nice makeup.  She had done a very natural eye, with a bold aqua eyeliner.  I really liked the effect; I thought it brought out the green in her eyes, and was interesting without being unprofessional.  The problem was . . . it was only over one eye.  After a nine hour day, I thought at first I was seeing things, but every time she blinked, there it wasn't.  Since it was the only real color on her face, it was really obvious to me.  I couldn't say if anyone else noticed it.  The rest of her eye looked fine, so I don't know if the linear came off, or if she forgot or what.  She's fairly goal oriented, so I can totally buy that she wouldn't look in the mirror all day.   At the time, I decided to just stare at the columns of numbers in front of me (I work in research grants, so there were a lot of them) and not tell her.  After all, when I spend a whole day missing an earring or with a huge chip in my nail polish, I always pretend that no one noticed.  Maybe she'd just take off her makeup and never notice?  Besides, she was just going to go home anyway.     But now I'm wondering if she did something after work and could have fixed her makeup or something.   If this should happen again, should I say something?  And what's the worst makeup oops you've ever done?

What's your favourite self feature? How about your least favourite?
Hey BTers!  I was just wondering with all the beautiful people on here what you considered to be your best feature and why?  Do you have more than one?   Also, what don't you like about yourself (Just to cover that as well)   My my favourite self feature has got to be my eyes.  I like their shape a lot! That and I get a lot of compliments on them so they tend to be a source of 'feel-good' for me. I enjoy changing them up all the time as well!  They're my main focus when applying makeup   my worst feature has got to be my toes!  They do not look anything like what my idea of beautiful feet do.  I have short toes and my baby toe curls downward. :/  good thing I can cover them babies up!  Lol! They only bug me when my straight toed friends are all flaunting theirs!     * I'm going to revise this a bit -  You have to say one good thing about yourself for every bad thing.  Them's the rules!!!

So today I found myself still with two vault ceiling lights out in my bedroom and trying to take selfies with my iPad to post on the 'What Are You Wearing Today' thread. My hubby walks into the room and sees me walking around with my iPad trying to find lighting that showcased my makeup and was like "what on earth are you doing?"  Haha, guess he's never caught me doing this before. i explained the lighting situation and he wants to take me to buy a camera and proper lighting for photos.  Now I'm left wondering what is proper lighting for photos?  And what camera would you recommend?

What Clothing Do You Wear While Applying Your Makeup?
I'm afraid to get makeup on my dressy/work clothes so I wear something else.   I used to wear longer sleep t-shirts but they seemed a bit confining and I found myself getting warm in them in the summer and in hotter climates. (And to sweat while putting on makeup or doing one's hair is the worst thing!)   Then I saw this neat Betsey Johnson slip nightie on sale at JCP last year and the light bulb went on above my head and I realized it would be perfect for wearing while putting on makeup. This nightie has little candy hearts drawn on it with mushy sayings (like the real Valentine's day candy), neat ribbon like adjustable straps and some ruffles on the bottom hem. Totally cute, loose, and never too warm.   I then returned to JCP and got a second slip nightie (also on sale) that has a gray and pink leopard spot print, also with ruffles on the bottom hem and pretty ribbon/lace adjustable straps.   Every time I wear one of these slip nighties, my husband always compliments me on how cute I am. It sure makes me feel cuter as I apply my makeup and style my hair.   After I'm done applying makeup and blow-drying my hair, I change into my dressy clothes or my work clothes.   What clothing do you wear while you apply your makeup? What you're wearing that day/night, or something else?

Child critiques
So, I put on a foundation today knowing that the color was too light but I thought that if I put a powder in the right color over it I might be able to pass it off instead of wasting it. After it dried I asked my five year old son how my face looked. His response: "Cool, Mom, you look like one of those China Geishas!" Um, yeah, that wasn't the look I was going for. So, that was coming off. You can always get an honest opinion from a child, which sometimes is a good thing! (Sometimes, not so much, like when he saw someone in the store and yelled "Mom, that guy has been eating too much candy!" the day after I explained to him that too much candy can make you get really big and not be able to run and play very well.)

High end woes
I decided to post it here since I'm sure you as a reader will understand. Has anything disastrous ever happened to your beauty products be it makeup or skincare or hair prodcuts?  And to be more specific, it wasn't caused by you but by another?   Here's my story, my aunt brought my cousin's kid who has become very wild, her mother is someone you really don't want to hang around with and is passing on her bad behavior to her little girl. The little girl wasted my full Tarte maracuja oil bottle.. and I mean completely wasted. I had been using it for a while and I loved that it didn't seem like I had used any at all. My mother didn't stop her and right now told me "she was putting it on her nails, I didn't think to say anything to her." Oil. I am beyond words, I am so upset, this was a gift to me.. I feel like lecturing the little girl about touching things that are not hers, but I am not her mother. I am distraught.. I feel like I am justified in being mad. And on top of that, I found out she shoplifted items from the stores that my mom and aunt took her too. Some gum and some earrings...    That's beside the point. I may sound superficial at this moment but my beauty routine is ruined. Agh
