What to do with gently used/ swatched makeup?
Any ideas on what to do with gently used or swatched makeup? Until VERY recently I did not live near a Sephora, so I would buy stuff, swatch it, not like it, or like it but never use it, and never bother to send it back. (I was in Alaska) You can't sell "used" makeup on ebay, even if it was only swatched with a q-tip. So I have an accumulation of unloved makeup and no idea what to do with it, all past the 30 day return period. Anastasia contour pallet, Naked 3, Return of Sexy pallet, Kat Von D lipstick, and so on. Not to mention a whole box of samples I will never use lol. Any ideas?

Collections and Wife vs Husband
The other day I had the following exchange with my husband and I thought you all might appreciate it!   Husband - (gestures towards dresser where I have about 40 bottles of perfume displayed) "Do you ever look at all those bottles lined up and think, 'I have a problem'"? Me - "No." Husband - "Huh." Me - "Do you ever look at your one bottle of cologne in the bathroom cabinet and think, 'I wish I had more variety'"? Husband - "No." Me - "Huh."   I find that this theme repeats itself often.  My husband has 5 pairs of shoes (black and brown dress shoes and 2 pairs of sneakers) where I have...  I don't know and you can't make me count.  My husband has about 5 pairs of jeans and a dozen t-shirts,  whereas I have vacuum bags of clothes under the bed to swap out seasons because they're not even close to all fitting in my closet or dressers. That man makes no sense. What about you and your SO?

Big KVD fan here. Just scored a backup palette of Gypsy a few days ago on Ebay. Also paid ebay prices for many of her palettes, a train case etc, all no longer available. I guess you could say I am officially obsessed with her line. Please say I am not the only here that breaks down on Ebay when the right item comes along at a "justifiable" price. lol

Which too faced blush is better for fair skin the berry or candy glow ?
I like both the candy glow seems like it might be a better choice of colors though even though its 30 dollars I think I will buy one of these for blush.Before this I had clinique posey it was in a green compact it worked really well with my skin tone but that was more of a berry/ darker pink tone.

Shallow
I woke up today and saw a picture on Facebook:  I liked a comment that said " Don't be so stereotypic.... Not all women take that long, for example, I take about 10 minutes to get ready!!! Yeah, whatever..... "   Then curiosity got the best of me and I clicked on View more comments and there I found the most.. insane comment I've read in a while.   " are you a woman? getting showered &dressed, a full face of makeup & perfect hair does not take 10 minutes. not in our world or any; I take ten minutes to hop out of bed to go to the gym. but I don't look appropriate for work or an evening out - since your profile picture is a man, I can assume you take ten minutes to get ready but for some reason can't share your beautiful, all done in ten minutes self on the internet.... hmm "   It made me cringe that someone would comment something like that. I love makeup so much but to have that kind of reasoning - to me it's just so so wrong. I'm sure most of you ladies would agree too.    Here's my message: We don't need makeup to be beautiful. We are beautiful. But the most important beauty is not physical, it is inner beauty - that's what shines through. Don't forget to smile, smile at a stranger because it can change their whole day. I may sound so cliche right now but it is what I feel. I remember walking by an elderly woman and she smiled at me and I couldn't help but smile back and that brightened up my gloomy mood. Don't let magazines or what you see on TV dictate what beauty is - we will never be happy with our looks if that were the case. Please have a great day.    “No matter how plain a woman may be, if truth and honesty are written across her face, she will be beautiful.” ― Eleanor Roosevelt   “The beauty of a woman is not in a facial mole,but true beauty in a Woman is reflected in her soul. It is the caring that she lovingly gives, the passion that she knows.” ― Audrey Hepburn   “Beauty shouldn’t be about changing yourself to achieve an ideal or be more socially acceptable. Real beauty, the interesting, truly pleasing kind, is about honoring the beauty within you and without you. It’s about knowing that someone else’s definition of pretty has no hold over you.” ― Golda Poretsky

Brand sitewide sales vs Sephora point promos.
I don't know if it's just me but over the years of makeup trial and error I have finally discovered the brands that work well for my skin and don't break me out. This being said, I am now trying to be much more savy and responsible with my money and wait for big sales (like the Tarte 30% off friends and family) vs the Sephora point perks. On the other hand, it saddens me I will miss out on the point perks as I would have NEVER tried Kate Somerville without the 500 point perk being available and two of her products have CHANGED my skin! The flip side is other 500 point perks have broken out my face and I felt were a complete waste. I just feel like with the high end brands I enjoy and crave, I must be smart with my money.

How long does it take you to do your makeup?
I have a pretty comfy makeup station and I do love me my products and I pretty much use everything from soup (primer) to nuts (setting spray). But I've noticed that instead of getting faster, I'm just getting slower and sloooower in my makeup application. I really enjoy the process of putting my makeup on - it's probably my favorite part of the day. But I feel like it's taking me a ridiculously long time to do my fairly simple everyday look (I don't vary how I do my makeup TOO much from day-to-day). So I used the timer on my phone for the past three days: 42, 50, and 52 minutes! Yikes! You ladies have seen my makeup. Nothing on my face should take 52 minutes! I know I take a long time doing my eyebrows - they're always a trouble spot for me. I'm going to TRY and speed myself up over the next few days so I can at least have more time to walk my dog in the mornings before work.    So I'm curious...how long does it take YOU to do your makeup?

Dolce and Dolce and Dolce... Oh My!
I've been on a massive Dolce spree lately... I tried their lipsticks and lip glosses and I'm in love!  I also did my normal Kat Von D hoarding as well this month with all the new lippies.  So much so, that I haven't yet did my normal Nars round up.  Is there a particular brand that you have been snatching up lately anytime you have a couple of bucks in your pocket?  What is the brand and how much do you think you spent on your brand addiction?  And what do you love about it?

Keeping seasonal lippy inventory
So two nights ago I decided to pull out all my lippys and take a sorta inventory on colours and items that would be useful for summer looks. I ended up sitting there with cotton pads and systematically applying and removing one after the other, deciding if I would wear each colour this season or not.   I must say I'm sitting pretty with quite a few bright summery lippys. the colours I deemed too dark were shuffled to the back of my drawer. i ended up putting six lippys aside for either my mother or my sister to pick at if they choose cause I thought they were mistakes for me.  In the end I feel much more organized, with a better sense of what I own and my lips are super exfoliated from all the swiping and wiping.   how do the rest of you keep track of your inventory?  Or do you?   It just occurred to me that I should have been disinfecting my lippys as I went.... Oh well.

Does anyone else dislike drugstore makeup?
I know this may sound harsh, but I really dislike all drugstore makeup. I'm sure there are many products out that are of great quality, even better than some high end makeup, but I have never found a drugstore product that I have liked. I've tried primers, foundations, powders, eye shadows, eye liners, mascaras, lipsticks, lip glosses, and lip stains, but each product has left me disappointed. I've also tried makeup removers from the drugstore, but they also left me disappointed. Does anyone else dislike drugstore makeup? I've stopped trying drugstore makeup all together now because every product has left me disappointed; which led to quite a bit of money being wasted. I only get high end makeup now because I am rarely ever disappointed with my purchases.

Does your makeup/hair ever look so good...
that you can't stop staring at yourself in the mirror? that you want to take a bunch of selfies? that you don't want you work out/shower because you look too good? As makeup addicts, I think it's ok to be little conceited from time to time. That was me today. I haven't been wearing a lot of makeup in the past few days and today I was so bored that I decided to do my full face. I cannot tell you how many times I stared at my contour. It just looked so good!

What not to wear - the Makeup Edition
OK, in reading though the makeup regrets of the past, it made me wonder if there are makeup faux pas that some of us may be doing and we are not even really aware that they are god awful. I need to know LOL.   I will admit that sometimes I match my eyeshadow to my top - is this horrible? Like if I'm wearing a coral top I'll do a coral look on my eyes - not INYOURFACE coral, but say better than doing blue and totally clashing, no?   I also own (although haven't worn in a long time) MAC's High Strung which falls into the silvery-pink category. It's brand new and unsed. YIKES! Guess I should consider adding that to my Back to Mac stash.    So lay em all out here - and let's see if anyone is brave enough to own up to them. :-) I just owned up to 2!!

REGRETTABLE TRENDS AND BEAUTY HABITS -- OH NO !
ok, story time.   are there any specific trends you took part in--or habits you too part of--only to look back and think 'WHAT WAS I THINKING?!'.  it may be embarrassing, it may be humorous, either way--it's one of the more entertaining elements of beauty/makeup that we can only learn to fully understand (and appreciate !) with hindsight.    in the early 2000s i hated the fact i was pale, so i was often a victim of the earlish days of the self tanner craze. i remember thinking it was MAGIC, only to to notice the next day in fresh daylight that i had bright orange streaks running down my calf. and you'd think that would've taught me my lesson but i'd just pretend like it wasn't there and continued on with it for months. another was the disaster at my attempt at a glossy eyelids (posted about more thoroughly in the 'what was your first sephora purchase' thread). and i'll add more to these 'confessions' as i remember more !   just to note: this is all in good-spirited nostalgic fun, and NOT to demean anyone's tastes or experiences.

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!

What was your very First purchase at Sephora and Why take the plunge?
We've all been there...a bag full of unused or disappointing make up from the drug store, which I still like but without the ability to try before buy you end up with a lot of fails. Then you find Sephora and wonder, is the price worth it? You try a few things, you like a few things, you see the price tag and tell yourself: "Eh, I can go with ramen noddles for a week to afford this." And then you buy it. What was your first purchase? Why did you choose it? I always like hearing other stories like this. Share on!

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!
