does anyone else have the problem with their clarsonic needing to be charged after 3 days of use?
hello, I have the clarsonic ARIA and i have noticed that the battery dies about every 3 days and it needs to go back on the charger. I thought this was a little too often and I wanted to get some feedback from other people if this is normal or mine may be defective. I have only had it for a month. Granted, I use it twice a day morning and night and i use one full cycle and then about half of the next since it always turns off when i am almost done.

Wishing a Happy and Healthy 4th of July to all.
This was one of my Dad's favorite holidays, so it's a little bittersweet not having that All American Patriotic Man with us this year.   He always did fireworks for us and the neighbors. How did he get them? Don't ask, Don't tell!! Or as they said in 'his' Navy "Loose Lips Sink Ships!"   My All time Favorite 4th of July Moment ~ When the Pinwheel 'firework' he attached to the tree came off after it started spinning and  quite literally  Chased Him Up The Street!!   If only we had a video camera.    My Least Fave 4th of July Moment ~ When the Tooth Fairy didn't come to get my tooth one 4th of July. My Mother explained that, as it turns out, the Tooth Fairy is afraid of fireworks! Just in case any of you had the same traumatic event happen in your young life.   What are your All Time Fave and/or Least Fave moments?   Safe travels and safe fireworks to all ~ please think of my Dad should you see a "Pinwheel". (that man could run  fast! )

Did you know that your Clarisonic can be engraved??
Yup! Apparently all models, except the Pro model, have a free engraving offer if you purchase through Clarisonic! Just saw it on their website.    It made me wonder what people have asked to have engraved on their Clarisonics.......so....   What name would you have engraved on your Clarisonic? I think this could be a lot of fun.   I'm undecided, but "U Can't Touch This" and "Please **kssweetheart** Don't Hurt Em!' are both contenders (both MC Hammer references)   How about you guys and gals?

Trooper Eyeliner
Thank you, thank you, thank you Kat and Sephora. I am 47 years of age and Australian. I have looked literally all my life for a black eyeliner that will stay put. I continually get colour transfer to the crease of my upper lid and the colour ends up a greyish tone. Finally (after trying another 10 eyeliners in the last 6 months) I found Kat's "Trooper" - WOW! I am blown away - finally I have an eyeliner that I can wear. The colour stays black and doesn't budge - AT ALL! Thanks again guys - you rock!

Gorgeous Clinique GWP
I've seen promos & gwp's posted before and thought this was a particularly nice one. It's from Macys - you get a GWP for $34.50 with any  Clinique purchase. Yes, I prefer when GWP's are Free - but the 'rainbow' colored tote bag is sooooo beautiful - I truly wish I could justify a purchase, the bag and the gloss are particularly nice. It says you can choose between 'pink' or 'nude'. Don't know when the promo ends.   I'm feeling so weak and really wish I could go for it, there aren't even any Clinique 'staples' that I could stock up on. I hope someone gets this and will let me know how much you like it. Happy Shopping.

This is kind of a continuation of the Order of Titles thread.   Wouldn't it be neat to have another title beyond HOF like "Makeup Goddess"? Because that really sounds like you've reach the top of the echelons - maybe reserve them for those with 5000 hearts plus or something like that?    Some of the ladies here really do deserve to be called makeup goddesses in every sense of the word. :3

Smashbox/Steven Khan event at Sephora Rideau Centre Ottawa
I signed up for the Smashbox event at my local Sephora (Rideau Centre) in Ottawa, Canada featuring celebrity photographer Steven Khan. I thought it was so amazing that they had such an event FINALLY happening at this location and figured it must be becuase they recently moved/renovated to a come up with a much bigger Sephora store.   So I go to the event ALL excited, get my make up done and apparently Steven Khan was not there and they had some other photgrapher that they called last minute from toronto to take the pictures.   They did not even tell us that he could not make it; I found out eventually on my own. Not once did any Sephora staff apologize. What made it worse was that everyone at Sephora kept giving a DIFFERENT story as to why he could not make it when I asked. The cashier in particular LIED straight to my face that they 'didn't let him in at the border' when infact I had alreayd been told by a make  up artist that he had actually come and that she saw him downtown eating at a restaurant.   Anyone else who went to this event and was dissapointed?? The amazing smashbox make up artist who did my make up somewhat made up for the entire disaster, but still. I'm reminded as to why I had stopped going to Sephora in store.

Amazing Cosmetics - Best at Dermstore, Skinstore or Ulta?
Hi all - I wanted to order an Amazing Cosmetics Velvet Loose Powder Foundation, but they don't have the color I need here at Sephora, I need the lightest possible shade. I was going to order a set from Sephora that is not actually the lightest shade, but I'm hoping it will be okay - it has a concealer, primer, Velvet Mineral Powder Set and a Concealer Brush - it seemed like a good value at $47.00 - and it just came back into stock, so it hasn't been just sitting around and getting old.   I was hoping to place orders today, but to be honest, I'm working a Migraine and just can't handle going through all sites and trying to determine what has the best offers, promos, rebates, samples and/or other various perks. Might consider getting a different kit if there's a better one elsewhere, but had planned on placing an order for that set at Sephora to get my Buxom Promo. What do you guys and gals think? I'll check in a little later, hoping some meds, heat and darkness will help keep my head from exploding.   Thanks in advance for any info - I really appreciate the help. Hope you're all having a fun and relaxing weekend. Thanks again.

Gimme Some Lip....Plumpers
What are your faves or least faves?   Just off the top of my head, I like some Duwop products, Dior Lip Maximizer,- and Too Faced Lip Injection Color Bomb Moisture Plumping Lip Tint in Coral Pop, which is Gorgeous! I love the tingle and flavor of all of these.   I did recently get the 'Too Faced' in Eastwood Red and it was a little much for me, I'll have to try it again though, I know some people have issues with ingredients in products that are red, wondering if that's why this was problematic for me. Have to try again or return. Anyone else have this experience/problem?   What about everyone else? Can you let me know what worked for your and/or what didn't? I'd appreciate any input, always trying to plump my pucker. Thanks all.   **I know that lylysa is gonna try to join this thread sometime soon, looking forward to everyone's thoughts.

The right product
Hi I am trying to decide on a list of products to use as makeup for my face, I have sensitive skin and therefore I want something that will give me less irritation but at the same time have moisturizing elements in it.
