Hi everyone, I just recently got the Naked 3 palette. I know I'm late but I'm so indecisive about palettes since I don't always use all the colors but so far I love it. I'm wondering what are your favorite combinations of eye shadows from this palette or your favorite looks to create. There are so many beautiful colors I want to make sure I'm using them the best I can and combining them the best way possible. I'd love to hear all the ways you all use this palette!
I posted something about this earlier, but it may have been confusing. For decades I thought I had round or protruding eyes. I definitely have prominent lids. I recently discovered (using the Smashbox YouTube video on eye shape) that my eyes would be what they consider to be downturned. I tried their recommendations for downturned eyes, but my lid is so big that their recommendations don't seem to do anything for me. I feel like I look pale and washed out with light shades on my lid and next to no eyeliner. Can anyone suggest an eye design for downturned eyes with prominent lids?
Has anyone tried Bioderma Crealine H2O Solution Micellaire to remove eye makeup? I know it is harder to get in the US but ive heard great things about it I'm currently using the Clinique take the day off which i love BUT I use it daily so i go through it in about 2.5mons and they don't sell a size larger than a 4oz. And what about the Shisedio The Makeup Facial Cotton, worth the extra $?
I am looking for something new, let me know what you would suggest please I have very long lashes. I used Hypnose for years, but I want something that is more defining since I don't have a problem with volume. I recently tried Rollergal, and I liked the curl, and the way it made my lashes so dark, but I found it clumpy. What do you like that might have the same effect without clumping? Maybe I should try it with a primer? I just picked up the Dior primer. thanks, all.
I have long lashes but they are dark blonde, I'm looking for definition and volume without clumping or the nasty spider look. Currently using Clinique high impact and just got a sample of the Too Faced Better Than Sex but I hate how clumpy my lashes get with both of them! Don't want to spend too much time combing them out every day. What are your suggestions?
OK FELLOW EYESHADOW JUNKIES! I've been seeing a lot of pictures of fall eyeshadow colors using copper and burgundy. I like shimmery colors and want to create a fun look. I already have quite a few palettes and none really have the colors I want. I am looking at the Laura Mercier Terracotta baked eyeshadow. I also saw some good options with Obsessive Compulsive Cosmetics. Any advice??? Any other great Fall eyeshadow looks y'all have seen lately??? Thanks
With the 15% off love note going on, I'd like to pick up an eye shadow palette or 2 and am having a tough time finding something that I like and that's different! I have very deep set, but large brown eyes and have lighter/fair skin (with dark brown hair). Any time I apply colors like blues, purples, or greens - they tend to make me look like I have a black eye. My go-to's are the Urban Decay naked palettes and I'd really like to try something with more color. Last week, an SA at Sephora suggested Innerstellar by Kat Von D after I explained the situation. She showed me how the dark blue actually had a lighter iridescent payoff on the skin - but unfortunately, after getting home and applying, I didn't see anything like this and just my usual black eye :/. . And not just something I get to gently apply on the outer corners that doesn't actually show up :/. Or am I just doomed to only being able to use color on my eyes in this one single way??
I am looking for a good under-eye setting powder. I know that Jaclyn Hill uses or well most beauty youtuber's use the Anastasia Beverly Hills Banana Powder but that comes in the palette and they don't seem to sell it just by itself. The Anastasia seems to be the most popular I have seen when I watch makeup videos online. Are there any other ones that are just as good but not in a palette?
Okay so I am having the hardest time picking a really good pigmented eyeshadow palette. Nothing overly expensive or anything. What is everyone's all-time fav' eyeshadow palette that they would purchase over and over again and use basically on a daily basis? I am hindu, so i have light-medium skin color. Some shadow colors don't look that great on me. like dark browns as my skin is already in that area lol...if a palette were to have those i would use it just as a underline on my waterline if that makes sense. i love colorful colors and matte colors and especially golds. But i am interested in ones that have a varity of colors yet that suit warm/cool toned skin i am neutral in that department. and something that is not an over-sized palette lol. any suggestionss????
I got the big pack of LashStash mascaras and am way excited about finding the perfect mascara that will work for me. However, so far I hate one of them (Lancome Hypnose Drama). I think for a higher end mascara it is awful. I am wondering how to go about getting a partial refund. Should I contact the mascara company itself or go into a Sephora store? UPDATE : Thank you to so many people who took my questions and posts seriously and responded kindly. It is my first thread and I am new to Sephora, the brands it sells, and this BeautyTalk community. Since this became a lengthy thread so quickly, I thought I would give a quick recap of how I resolved my issue, and save some time for people who might be in the same circumstance I was and unsure how to proceed. But before you read how I resolved the issue, I wanted you to get a picture of how I view myself as a customer. You should know that to me every $1 is 100 hard earned pennies. And if I put my money down for product, regardless of its size, I expect it to deliver. In addition to being vocal about products through word of mouth, blogging, etc., I firmly believe in communicating with those directly involved with a product's production and distribution. And through honest communication with companies about how I truly feel about their product, they almost always thank me reaching out to them (from as simple as nice thank you letter to as large as a coupon for free product). So here's what happened: I bought the $45 Sephora Favorites LashStash Deluxe 11-piece sampler (NO voucher) with the expectation that while I may not love everyone, that each one should be high-end performance-wise. I also expected to use them all up and for it to last me a LONG time (think back to my $1 meaning a lot to me). Years ago, I had previously fallen in love with They're Real and so I had something to judge the others against. The first one I tried happened to be the Lancome Hypnose Drama and it was just not delivering. So I watched some instructional videos and tried again. Still not delivering (extremely strong smelling, clumpy and made my eye lashes stick together). So the vocal side of me starts wanting to let the company know and rectify the situation (yes, I'm talking about expecting a partial refund, exchange, etc.) But I had only previously corresponded with companies who make lower-end products. So what were the rules with Sephora and Lancome? Was Lancome like Costco where they stood by what they sold so much that they would take care of everything? Or like a Supercenter where you had to contact the manufacturer? I was not sure and so decided to post my question to BeautyTalk and glean from your wealth of knowledge. So I posted and ya'll let me know that you cannot do partial returns/exchanges with Sephora--either return all the mascaras or none. But neither one appealed to me. I didn't want to give up on the others after the first failure. I also didn't want to stand idly by and just be okay with a high-end product under-performing. So I reached out again and most people agreed that contact with Lancome or both was best. I also learned that there were new Stash sets out that had a voucher with them (and was like, "that is the best deal ever" and also bummed that they didn't include one in my kit). So I first called Sephora and the phone call was very rushed but polite and at the end she basically said that she was sorry that I couldn't get voucher but would add a certain amount of points to my account. I really am not familiar with the point thing but from some of your comments, it is a way to get a free sample...cool. I still wanted to let Lancome know about my bad experience with their mascara. Lancome makes the product and is the one ultimately responsible for its formula and how it delivers, after-all. I waited for a SUPER LONG time to speak with someone, then got transferred, then dropped, and then a SUPER LONG time again. But it was so worth it. The Lancome consultant listened to everything and I asked her for tips and she documented my likes and dislikes. Then she said she would mail me a check to purchase THE EXACT SAME SERIES of mascara (to the confused commenter it was NOT a full refund of the $45) because mine was obviously defective. And I said, but the mascara was a little one, that is too much. Then she said it was a gesture of kindness and to please give the company another try and highly recommended that I purchase over a Lancome counter instead of Sephora. So, of course I said OK, sounds good to me. And I will do as agreed. Never in the conversation was I rude to the workers or demand compensation. I did expect something, but not to the degree it was given. Which only cements in my mind that Lancome (and kind of Sephora) are smart about wanting to help customers because we BUY their product with our hard-earned money. The company is entitled to make their own policy and direct their customer service to do as the company says. The same goes with the stores who sell the company's product. And the customer (that would be me and YOU) are also entitled to speak out to them and as many parties that we want. Enough said. It's time for bed.
I have tried both Urban Decay and Kat Von D's but neither help with that pop of color I am looking for. I have neutral tan skin and some colors (like from Kat Von D's Chrysalis) just don't show up the way I would like them to. It's funny because they look great on my arm but don't show up as well on my eyes. I have also tried a white base one (NYX) and it was so so. Still not the results I was hoping for (or see in youtube videos). Do you have a favorite? And how much do you put on? I have tried a light coating, slathered on, something in the middle, have applied with fingers, brushes, beautyblender and sigh, no pop. Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated!
So i bought Perversion. BEST EYELINER EVER! UNTILLLLLLL I went to sharpen it. And I have had to sharpen it EVERY SINGLE DAY since. It is terrible! I can't take it back to the store since i have had to sharpen down to half way over, but i am also now out like $20 or whatever i paid for any. Anyone else have this same experience?
I want to try out an all matte shadow palette and there are so many out now that it's quite confusing, please share your thoughts or drop in a vote for one you love. Or If you want to share swatches or have images of the palettes side by side on any of these..I can only purchase online in canada atm. Thanks! Here are the ones I'm looking at, from most interested to least: KVD shade + light eye contour palette Viseart neutral matte 01 Too faced natural mattes palette Tarte Tartelette Any others? Edit: I'm nc40 with some dark lids so I find some mattes look ashy or muddy on me. I forgot to mention I wouldn't mind mufe as an option but there Are soo many to choose from, any suggestions for crease & transition must haves?
I was so excited that I finally got to try the new LM artist palette today. Unfortunately, I realized the black ink is all over my hand and desk. Has anyone else experienced the same problem or I just had a bad one? I tried to wipe it, but it still does not work. It is so disappointing because the palette is beautiful, but I really don't feel like getting ink all over my hands and desk every time I use it. Not the quality you'd expect for something that costs $70 CAD
I can't decide! I have used the Anastasia one (which I like) and I am debating between whether to switch to something new (and uncertain) or stick with a repurchase. Anyone tried both? Or any suggestion of other clear brow gel?
Just wanted to let anyone who is interested know that there is still some Jaclyn Hill palates left in stock . They just went on pre sale at morphebrushes.com a few hours ago and probably won't last too much longer.
I just received notification that this palette is back in stock and I'm wondering if it's worth purchasing? I remember being so disappointed when it went out of stock...but than the KVD palette came out. I grabbed the KVD shade and light eyeshadow during the event, so not sure if I should invest in another neutral matte palette. How is everyone's experience with these 2 palettes? Which one do you think is better? Or are both of them a must have?
Okay so I have a problem, I have no color to my makeup style what so ever and I need to switch things up! Generally I use neutral colors with a black eyeliner. It's time for a Revamp on my eyes... Below is a picture of me and my normal makeup, I can attach another picture if requested. Hope you guys can help! Smoore
I've decided it's time for me to depot some of my eye shadows. There are some singles and palettes that aren't getting much love because I forget about them so it seems like reorganizing them and depoting is the way to go. I'd been considering Z palette, but then I swore I read somewhere that the construction is cardboard-based and not super durable. I'm worried about this because the makeup palettes and singles I have that have come in cardboard (I have some by Benefit and Smashbox) always seem to get dingy looking on the outside over time. Accordingly I'd prefer a more durable construction like plastic so it holds up better over time. Also hoping for a brand with a range of dimensions as I'd like something that fits into my existing makeup organization system, if possible. Any suggestions? I know brands like Mac make some, but the collection I have is from so many brands that I don't think something brand specific would be effective since I want to keep like colors together and many of them are near dupes from different brands.
So I'm creating a makeup look for a fashion event. Fun. I've already created the look and sent it to the actual makeup artists, but an element i left out (intentionally, because i want to do my research and then i'll buy it myself) was that i want a light pink pencil for the girl's waterline. This apparently is not much a thing, because i've only found one thus far (MAKE UP FOR EVER aqua liner, which looks good but i'd like to see my options). Anyone know of a light cool toned pink liner ? Pencil form. I'm open to lilac too. NARS rue bonaparte is too flesh toned. any ideas ? thanks friends !
