Hi! Prom is next year but I'm already getting started! I've decided to let sephora make up artists do my make up for prom! The dress I want is black & turquoise! I'm having trouble finding colors that'll match my dress and my skin tone. What shades of make up could compliment my dress? My color IQ is 2Y12 thank you!
I've seen several different video's, here on Sephora and other places and, well, I'm confused! They all seem to be applying face primer differently! Some show it applied allover the face, some just in "trouble" spots....Can anyone help a gal out? Also, I'm new to face primers and just trying them out...I wear Nars sheer glow (?) foundation and really don't know which primer to go with. Any ideas are welcomed! Ideally, I'd like it to even out my skin tone..it's a tad red in areas. I have blonde hair, blue eyes, medium skin tone that is combination, but is prone an occasional break out....I do have to touch up my face with powder as it will become shiny in my t-zone by the end of the day..but I wouldn't call my skin oily. Tx so much!
Hi - don't know if anyone else feels this way, but I have a major problem with fragrance samples - P.U. This part is especially to the mods/whoever else reads all of this - Is there any way you could put perfume samples in a separate baggie? Preferably a sealed one. Do you think this is doable?? ** I just started opening one of many Sephora packages and got to one where I didn't even get the box opened, but could smell the very strongly scented, perfume inside. I had to put it in another room,, in hopes of the smell wearing off. (I've already heard complaints on how it's stinking up that room too **sigh**) I don't know if it leaked or what happened, but it smells so strong and so overpowering and just plain Nasty!! Sometimes I find that if something like a lip product is packed with a smelly something or other, they can take on the scent of whatever the smelly offender might be, which isn't necessarily a good thing. Do you think there's anything that can be done about this? (Other then the obvious, 'don't order perfume samples stupid') I only get perfumes if there are no other samples that work for me. Then I pass them along to my friends, family etc. They're usually thrilled! Any thoughts on what could be done in the future? Hope others agree and that it's not just me. I will admit, I do have very heightened senses, but sometimes you know it's not just you (i.e. all the moaning/groaning I'm hearing about smelling up another whole room) Maybe you can send this to the 'higher ups' too. ***Hope others will mention if they agree with this stinky issue, strength in numbers and all. You don't have to heart this - maybe just put a 'me too' or 'same' - then it would be known it's not just one crazy woman. Thanks all, I appreciate it. ps - I'll let y'all know how I like what's in the box in about a week or so, my special-ordered Pink HazMat suit should be here by then and hoping it will be safe to go near by then. btw - Help Mods.....Please and Thank You. UPDATE - Well, the 'offending package' was moved to a 3rd room this morning before I woke up - I fear the next step will be out on the deck! Unfortunately it's not a mini order, but one with several items. **Ginormous Sigh**
Since the new category on the Sephora homepage is clearly a page that is hand updated (in the era of populating off a tag to aggregate, I have no idea why), what is your strategy to keep up with what is really new in Sephora? I've taken to once a week popping open the brand page for my favorites (makes Firefox really mad) and pull all products, look for price drops and the new tag to show up there. Just today found some stuff in BareMinerals (deluxe foundation pot), Urban Decay (setting sprays), and Lavanilla (deorderant trio and scent trio) that had not posted yet in the forums. It is unbelievable the lengths we're having to go to find items (sometimes limited edition stuff). Posting this in the feedback forum, even though it is website feedback instead of forum software.
Hi - I was wondering if anyone has tried this yet. I did see a few reviews but didn't get enough info from them, plus it's always nice to chat 'personally' with bt girlfriends about things like this. It says there's "fragrance' listed in the ingredients, but it didn't list anything that gave me a good idea of what the 'fragrance' is - didn't list menthol or peppermint oil or anything like that. Can anyone tell me more about the flavor/fragrance of this? Some of you know fragrance can be a real deal breaker for me (just a whiff can cause major headaches) Anyone have some inside info? The colors look beautiful and I'm always on the look out for a new & better plumper - so any info you could share about any facet of this pretty plumper would be most appreciated. Thanks all.
Am I the only one who never has questions answered when they participate in a BT chat with experts? I realize that that there many many questions asked and they can't get to everyone, but today I had the third question posted and it was completely skipped over. Pretty bummed about today since I asked a specific question about production application (which isn't listed on the product packaging, website, etc.). I suppose I could email customer service but it would have been nice to hear it from the expert. With only an hour to answer questions, it's certainly not enough time. Perhaps we could submit our questions ahead of time and answers could be posted the day of and the expert could spend the hour going into more detail about questions they want to specifically address. Seems like there must be a better way to do this!

Just like comparing cars or computers, I wish there was a side by side comparison tool for products on Sephora. I want to line up and compare, rating, size, price and ingredients. So often, I find myself bouncing around between products when trying to filter through choices and I get my options tangled. At the moment, I've decided I need a toner in my life (a first). So many options!
I tend to lean toward lighter more neutral shades but sometimes have fun with an eyeliner, like in grayish purple or mossy green ( thank you Urban Decay!) and I always go big on mascara. Any advice or new ideas? Thank you!
I just ordered a product and the first time I entered my expiration date incorrectly, so I then corrected this and placed my order. But on my bank account it shows that I was charged twice for the order?
I am 17 years old and i have a baby face. I'm just starting to get into makeup. Ive been looking for a lip gloss or lip stick color that fits me. I want it to look natural. I have big lips and a caramel skin tone. Thank You!
Hi! I'm a newbee... Has anyone bought the becca sculpting compact? It's fairly new.... I like the color it produces however, it looks blotchy over time and fades. Has anyone had the same issues or can give me any suggestions? Thanks a bunch
Elite Serum Rx (Extra Strength) Eye Serum. Has anyone heard of this eye serum? The only reviews are posted on YouTube by the company of 'people who submitted their own reviews'...hmmm. Lot's to read about the magic potion online Elite Serum.
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!
