Ok beauty masters. I'm thinking of purchasing those infamous meteorites during the 4x point week. I need your advice...do I need to order the bigger box or the cheaper box, or purchase both? I mean, is it worth the $ to buy both or should I just get one? Ive noticed several of you guys have both. I'm fair skinned and freckled, hazel eyes, and blonde hair. Any thoughts?n
Recently, my left brow is turning lighter than my right and I really would like to try the tinted brow gel that comes in a container like mascara. I think it may look more natural. I've tried tons of different brow pencils, but I can never get them to look right. Same with the powders and pomades. My problem - and question - is two-fold: 1st - Do these products work and look natural? Are they easy to use? I'm hoping that "tinted" doesn't mean "painted"! LOL 2nd - My brows - at least my right one - are dark brown, almost black. My hair is colored red. Should I stick with the dark or go with auburn? Help, please!!
I want t to start contouring my face but want to make sure I buy the best products for my skin type. I am over 50 Latina with a round face medium/light complexion with yellow undertones. I wear Mac NO 25 foundation and have T zone oily SKIN. Smash Box contouring kit has been recommended.
I have bought sooo many lippies here lately, especially when bite rereleased their double ended lippiesvand the 4 pack of lip stick, Marc Jacobs released his, and of course Kat von d recent release, I've amassed quite a few lippies and have at least 5 more coming! (The UPS man hates me!) Sooooo I need advice from you guys on how to organize them. I will say my eyesight is awful so I cant read the colors on the bottom of the lippies. I have an ikea table with 5 drawers with drawer organizers from bed bath and beyond, but they are getting full! I noticed curiouscannible had hers in acrylic stackable thing. Good idea but, should I organize them by brand, or color?? And if by color, what about the double ended bite ones? So come on guys, give me your secrets!!
I love, love, love Wayne Goss! I know that he's got hundreds of You Tube tutorials, and a new line of makeup brushes...but my question is, does he have any books out?! I've been hunting online & checked out my Barnes & Noble and haven't found anything. How great would that be! If anyone has come across one please let me know :-)

Hello! My name is Karson, and I am a fifteen year old sophomore in high school. At this age all anybody ever asks me is "What do you want to be when you get out out of high school?" My answer is always that I would love to be a makeup artist. Whenever I tell people this, they laugh and say that I can't live off of being a makeup artist. But if makeup is my passion, I think I can prove them wrong. If people such as Wayne Goss, Jaclyn Hill, and Michelle Phan can do it…why can't I? I have a few issues with proceeding to this career though. My family is very tight on money, even if I ask for drugstore makeup for my birthday my mother yells at me. Nobody is supportive about my decision. And there are no makeup classes for people my age in the area of where I live. So, I come here for advice. How could I convince to my parents that makeup artistry is a career that I can gradually get into, and what should I do if they continue to be unsupportive? I am also looking into colleges or schools to go to when I get out of high school but I don't know where to start. Should I be looking up cosmetology schools, or just plain makeup artistry schools?
It's something bold, something new, something (that should never be) borrowed, something (that comes in) blue! It's Ciate LashLights - it's a lash tip mascara that has FullFlutterFoam Technology!! (sounds impressive) It comes in Nymph (green) Surreal (aqua) Famous (pink) and Electric (blue) I wish it came in a purple/aubergine color, which my green eyes favor. What do you guys think of this? Will you try it? Have you tried it? What colors do you think you'd try? Will I give in and get it? and in what color? Any thoughts or 'tips'? Please post any new interesting finds of your own, I don't always think to regularly check out all the new products, maybe this will be a fun way to share cool things we think are special finds - for better or for worse. EDIT - Really? Why'd it break up my 'feel' in the thread title? It could not have been this users error! At least I don't think so. Sure, the one thing I can't change/edit. Dag Nabbit! Guess that's the eerily prophetic 'for worse' part I mentioned! EDITED EDIT - oops, my bad. It showed up on my screen with 'FEE' on the 1st line and the 'L' on the 2nd line. But when I saw it posted 'feel' came out right, false alarm.
Just thot id share what works best for me. I use the mia in the morning in the shower with my sheshido cleanser, thus avoiding getting makeup in the brush head. Then I use the luna at night with my estee lauder cream cleanser. The silicone bristles are a cinch to clean make up off. I j u st lather some bath/body works antibacterial soap on it and it cleans right up. I would love to hear other suggestions on this. I will say my skin is glowing because im getting the best of both worlds!

Hi - I was checking out my shopping cart when I noticed that Google Chrome posted a 'warning shield' which states "this page includes scripts from unauthenticated sources" and "this page has insecure content". Obviously there's a much longer explanation when you click 'learn more' but those are the just the highlights. Anyone else seeing this or have more info about it? Thanks.
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.
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! )
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?
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!

Yes, I just ordered mine in Fair, along with a lip liner and gloss duo - I can't wait until "IT" arrives!!! Go ahead, be an IT Girl!
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
