I've burned through a number of lighted magnified mirrors that I loved, but now I'm on the hunt for something new. Any suggestions of what to try or completely avoid? I use the lighted magnifier for tweezing on a very regular basis, I'm obsessed with finding every little tiny stray hair. I also carefully use an extractor for some stubborn blackheads. (I never use a blemish extractor with a lance on the end and caution others to avoid lances too, that should be left to a professional dermatologist.) Hence, the reason for burning through them so quickly, not cheap ones either. I use a regular mirror for applying skincare and makeup. I do my tweezing and makeup application while sitting on my bed, never in the bathroom. I don't want something you attach to a wall and would like to keep it under $75.00. Any thoughts? Thanks in advance. 😊
I bought the Anastasia Beverly Hills brow pomade and #7 brush last year and bought another #7 brush and Anastasia Beverly Hills travel kit this year but my card didn't seem to show any points or my birthday to the cashier or online in my account?
had a makeover a few years ago at one of your stores. They recommended a mauve colored lipstick, which seems to be discontinued. Currently using shrinagar but not mauvey enough. I had med skin tone, hazel eyes & was told to stick with mauvey & rose colors. What do you recommend? It doesn't have to be Nars. Also I should add that I have very dry skin.

First forum post: I have been a VIB Rouge for 2-3+ years now. I just feel like the benefits listed on is not much different than that of the VIBs. Anyone feel the same? I don't really care if we get the the discount 1 week ahead of the VIB's... how is that "better" offer than what VIBs get. In addition, I feel like everyone gets the unlimited makeover. If you want to try out new things, the sephora employee will most likely help you and seat you down for the products you want to try. At the same time, I do not want to get the free makeover because the brushes and the tester products are infested with molds, germs, and fecal matters. I learned my lessons after getting huge break outs after getting helped by one of the sephora employee. The brushes that they used on me was already used on the previous person that they were helping (and god knows how many people that brush has been used on). She did not clean the brush off with the brush cleaner and tried to put the application on my face directly. I thought that was disgusting, I asked her if she can clean the brush before applying on my face and even still, the brush was not cleaned thoroughly. I also observed, people putting their hands and some people literally applying the lipsticks or lip-gloss directly on their mouth (the testers). I just feel like its not really hygienic, hence I do not apply any testers item beyond the palm of my hand (which is washed with the soap afterwards I leave the store). So VIB rouge gets unlimited makeovers, 1-3 times a year discount of 10%,15%, and if lucky 20%, and $25 off for 50 (from recent discount), and the supposed "surprise gift" that I never received (what is this surprise gift?? lol). All these benefits are VERY similar, if not, the same as what VIBs receive. Is there any way to offer better rewards for the rouge members? I spend like more than $2000.00 a year. I think this year alone, I am close to spending $3000.00 or more. I also found that the samples are not much given in the stores whenever I ask for samples. I guess the only perks of being a vib rouge is the online orders that I can get it for free + 3 samples that the store does not wish to give me. In addition, I really don't want samples with infested bacteria and everyone's fingers touched (its not hygienic for me to bring it home for me to apply on my face to get more breakouts). Another thing is that I went to retrieve my gift from the sephora store in costa mesa. Horrible customer service The lady give me a VIB gift without telling me. I was looking at my purchases while walking towards my car, and I noticed that my gift was VIB and not rouge! So I went back to get it exchanged and the lady was like "you should feel lucky that we even have the vib gift. It's just an eyeliner that the rouge get... its a tiny weeny bitty eyeliner.. nothing special really".... ummm what? ahhh ranting done. Spoiler (Highlight to read)
Hi Beautys! I have a question if someone can please help me. What do you usually use before you dip your brush into the cream contour? The reason I ask is because I notice that it is very hard to get the color out. When I see others put it on, it looks like they can get the color out easily but if I was to do that then I would have to dip it hard into the palette. Is there something that you suggest using before applying? Like spraying Fix+? Setting spray on the brush? Or onto the palette? I would appreciate your help... THANK YOU!!!
Hello everyone, I'm new to makeup world and first time posting on here. I recently bought Kat Von d liquid lipstick - my first liquid lipstick ever! Applying that is tricky. I need help ..if anyone can tell me any tricks/tips when applying. Should I wear lip primer or not? Any advice would be appreciated please.
Hi, I saw how this is an excellent highlighter, and I just wanted to know if it would be one that I could use. I use the NARS Radiant Creamy Concealer- Amande. I have a concealer, and a foundation. Do you need a highlighter for dark circles? Thank you!
Hi! I use 1N3 Creamy Vanilla from Estee Lauder double wear maximum cover. I want to try something else because of the spf 15 that is in it and in some lights it makes your skin looks overlighted and like a ghost. I would LOVE to try the Kat von D lock it Foundation. The problem is that I live in Holland, and they don't sell it here, so I will have to order it without testing Does anyone know wich shade wil look the most like the estee lauder 1N3? Hope someone can help me. (I have a yellow undertone and a light skintone, but afraid that light is going to be to light)
I recently ordered and was so excited because I snagged some of the good samples upon ordering. Too bad, when I got my order not only was my samples substituted for another, but I'm short 1 sample does this really happen? why Sephora, why? didn't you know that samples encourages your customers to buy more stuff the next time? i'm soo dissapointed.
Hey guys! I've seen my fellow posters use all three of these words to describe the same thing, so I wanted to clarify the meanings. (Please don't hate me, I'm not trying to attack anyone!) Regime: the time that an evil government is in power. "The **bleep** regime." Regimen: a routine or lifestyle meant to improve health. "A strict regimen of diet and exercise." Regiment: a group of soldiers that serve together. "General Rydia, Private First Class, 14th Regiment of Fort Knox." <-- I probably got this all wrong, forgive my ignorance. Routine/Ritual: what I think most people might mean when they use these other words!
Hey everyone! I just recently found the beauty talk community and I think it is so great! I was just wondering some tips on how to become more involved?

Thanks everyone in advance!

Hi! I have been looking for a new foundation for a medium-light skin tone. I used to wear the makeup forever HD foundation, however since they changed the formula, I couldn't let myself to like their new formula. I have been searching through many websites about a good foundation, but I couldn't made up my mind. Nars sheer glow and Diorskin Nude Skin- glowing caught my attention, but I'm not sure. I see a lot of Bobbi Brown foundation reviews though. I own GA Maestro, but I don't really like using it as my daily foundation. And so, please let me know what you think is the perfect foundation for a medium-light skin tone. I (urgently?) need help.
I need help linking my beauty insider card that I just got today in-store at Sephora. The lady who gave me the card only asked for my name and last name. I made a sephora account today, since I thought I could link my card to my sephora account online but am having trouble doing so. Any help would be nice!
I hate ontrac. Hate them. Worst customer service ever and they take forever to deliver. Just FYI, they said a package would be here today and it isn't. This isn't the first time either. Please stop using Ontrac, or at least let customers know something will be sent via OnTrac. If I had to choose between Ontrac with "2 day delivery" or any other carrier with 5 day delivery, I would choose any other carrier any day of the week. Most importantly, I'd like to have the option to choose.
if I am not going out in the sun (re: Shiseido 50 spf), I put on Rice Dry Oil, expensive but worth it. I massage it into the dry or red parts of my skin, until my skin feels moisturized, then, to make the oiliness go away, I take a Soft Cotton Square and put a tiny bit of water on the square , and pat very gently on the space with the oil on it, now I glow. Who else uses Rice Dry Oil? I love it.
I started becoming obsessed with makeup after staying up countless nights binge watching girls on youtube. I have my favourite girls to watch on youtube but I feel as though my list is becoming shorter. I personally enjoy watching girls around my age or a little bit older. If anyone has any suggestions about beauty gurus I might enjoy please let me know! My current favourite girls are; KathleenLights JaclynHill DaceyHapa KayleighNoelle CaseyHolmes LauraLee ReadySetGlamour Young Wild and Polished Tati Carli Bybel SML_x0 Nicole Gurriero Teni Panosian Elanna Pecherle Youtubers I cannot stand to watch; MakeupbyTiffanyd Shaaanxo Zoella
Hello, I was wondering if anybody has had the chance to play around with this palette, since I ordered it on impulse (makeup junkie problems) lol. So far I have heard from one person on Youtube that she is disappointed with the eyeshadows but the highlighters are amazing. Just want other inputs regarding this palette if anybody owns it.
Hey I'm not sure if this question is answered anywhere but I've tried looking for it with no luck. What determines those titles that everyone has like "SCENE QUEEN" or "BEAUTY BUFF" or "SPECIAL GUEST"... what makes anyone any of those? I was something like 'SCENE QUEEN" once and now I'm a "BEAUTY RESIDENT"... There are so many titles that I don't know which is better or worse per se. Is it simply the number of questions you answer? Or what? Why isn't there some kind of page which lists all of the titles and what they mean because they seem kind of random to me.
