I've been using Ole Henriksen Sheer transformation before my primer and it's been working pretty good for me, but i was wonder what other moisturizers would be good for applying before makeup to help with oil control and make skin look better, any suggestions?
I've heard its name so often and it hasn't been in the stores recently so It looks like online would be the only option for me for the time being...but is it really that great? What's given it such a great reputation?
Hey everyone! After years of struggling with bad skin, I have finally decided to take on a healthier lifestyle - not just to improve my inner well being, but also my outer (skin, hair, etc.). With that being said, I'm hoping to hear some of your success stories: did drinking more water help improve your skin, did your foundation start working and applying better after making healthy changes, etc. Looking for a little inspiration! I hope to hear from you guys and get your input!
I've been thinking about venturing into the world of falsies and am finding that there's HUGE price differences between different types. Based on old threads and limited personal experience, I definitely get that glue is super important and that no matter how much you spend, you really shouldn't use the same pair too many times. My question is, how much difference is there between more expensive brands like MUA versus cheaper ones? Also, can people recommend some favorite cheaper sets?
I haven't tried too many products from this brand but I am considering being a consultant since I stay at home with my son. Does anyone have favorite products from this line? I have liked some of their eveyshadows and the satin hands collection.
Has anyone given this a try or thought about getting this? I heard many reviews about this, especially Dim. I want to get BT opinions on this one before I go into Sephora. I know I won't be walking out with just one item.
I'm wanting to buy a new liquid liner because the one I have right now (I think it's Maybelline...) is starting to smudge/melt as it gets warmer out I'm looking for one that will last all day and is fairly easy to apply. Any recommendations?
Ok I thought it would be really fun to do a thread about what is your favorite beauty products for each color of the rainbow. If you don't have a beauty product then fashion works as well ^_^. Red, Orange, Yellow, Green, Blue, Indigo, & Violet are the colors. Indigo for me is a more blue purple color. So if you skip Indigo don't worry ^_^ Here are mine (so hard to pick just one for each) Red - Mac Charmed I'm Sure lipstick Orange - Maybelline Orange Edge Lipstick Yellow - Inglot 474 Eyeshadow Green - Mac Jealously Awake Eyeshadow Blue - Orly High on Hope nail polish Indigo - Urban Decay Ransom eyeshadow (not pictured it was in a palette) Violet - OCC liptar in Belladonna
What do you guys think about this years kit? Will you be buying it? I just saw it in the new arrivals section but is not for sale yet.. What are you most excited about in this kit? Im still debating if i should get it! Link to the kit: http://www.sephora.com/sun-safety-kit-P379059?skuI d=1524727 *UPDATE 5/8: Sephora took it down since it's not for sale yet, but it will be for sale mid-end of May!! Check back!
I just saw this in the NEW section and I'm thinking about getting it! I love these type of kits and surprisingly enough EVERY SIGNLE item in this kit, i want to try. Usually theres 1 or 2 items i dont care for but not this one! Though I have owned the NARS Orgasm blush before and loved it. I was sold until i saw it was $75... I mean it's reasonable considering the sizes of the products you're getting but do you think it's worth it? I would defiantly not even think twice to buy it if it was going for like $50 What's your opinion on the kit? http://www.sephora.com/super-stars-beauty-essentia ls-P379411?skuId=1521830 - 0.035 oz Make Up For Ever HD Microfinish Powder - 0.06 oz Sephora Collection Microsmooth Baked Eye Shadow Trio in Black Light - 0.16 oz NARS Blush in Orgasm - 0.5 oz Kate Somerville Exfolikate Intensive Exfoliating Treatment - 0.5 oz Josie Maran 100% Pure Argan Oil - 0.33 oz Hourglass Veil Mineral Primer - 0.3 oz Benefit They're Real!

I started wearing make up more often after I gained 20 punds and everything seems not so good. collecting 3 foundation, 3 blush on 2 lipstick and I started learning a lot on make up like need moisturizer, primer setting spray and trying to learn eye shadow now but not sure if im going to learn it. thanks
Lately I've been loving the color purple and wearing a lot of It. Note: I haven't worn all things purple at all times, i mainly have played up my eyes with neutral lips, but at times I've worn my fav purple lip colors. I really like Loracs Starry-eyed eyeshadow trio in Starlet, Nars velvet matte lip pencil in Never Say Never, MUFE Aqua eyes in Metallic purple and OCCs lip tar in Darkroom Plum-- I thought this was too dark for me, but with just wearing black eyeliner, it isn't as dark as it seems. OPI Blasted purple glitter for my nails i usually love pink, but purple really seems to do my brown eyes justice. Anyone have their favs in purple?
Ladies! Just got an e-mail that the Kat Von D foundation is back in stock. I personally found a better foundation because this one has a lot of pink undertones and I am more yellow undertoned. But I know a lot of you were asking about it! Hurry before its gone!
I have combination skin, I am asian with light medium skin tone. I'd say I have a yellow undertone. I'm looking for recommendations for concealers that cover up acne scars well. I've tried MAC concealers, drug store, Estee Lauder, Kat Von Dee and I am currently using Tarte Maracuja creaseless concealer (it's good, but does not completely satisfy me). I want one that can cover the dark spots well, if it can also work with some of my redness and my under eye circles that would be awesome too. Thanks xx
I've seen this go around on youtube, and I'm curious to see what you guys have to say! If someone were to steal ALL of your makeup (I know, horrible right?) What would be the first 10 things you would repurchase? For me, 1) Loreal Telescopic Shocking Extensions Mascara 2) Diorskin Nude foundation 3) Rimmel Stay Matte Powder 4) Benefit Dandelion Blush 5)NARS Primer with SPF 6) Maybelline color tattoo in Barely Branded 7) Naked Basics Palette (Not a huge fan of the formulas of these shadows but I love the colors) 8) Shu Uemera Eyelash Curler 9) Nivea Lip Butter (Vanilla Macadamia one) 10) Revlon Kissable Balm Stain in Honey
Do you like repurchasing products or getting a new product more? I personally like getting a new product because I find it more fun. I'm having trouble deciding right now whether to repurchase a bareminerals volumizing mascara which I love and have run out of, or if I should try out a new mascara, or just getting a new lip product; I've been stalking some of Clinique's products... So what do you like buying? Also what would you do in terms of the loved mascara vs. new mascara vs. new lip product situation? ~We are all beautiful~
I like wipes, but I am trying to branch out to others and have found some real duds and a few good ones. I like the Sonia Kashuk one ok, but I really dislike the Clinique Naturally Gentle Eye Makeup Remover. Maybe I am just using it wrong, but I find it is too gentle to remove mascara!
Ok now I don't want to try and start a bad thread but I thought it would be interesting to see what are some things people don't like about companies. Now I'm not talking about like animal testing or over photoshopped images stuff like that but more little things that just kind of get annoying after a while. For me it's a few things like example Mac (which I do love) always seem to come out with this little exclusive collections that are only online and the only way you find out about them is going on the site or from a email. The collections though end up being all permanent items that are already in their stores. Or another example was when Urban Decay came out with the Alice palette it was basically the same colors as another palette but with different names but they said it was new colors. So I guess when companies just flat out lie about a product annoys me. If this thread is not appropriate please let me know and I will delete it because I do not want to cause trouble or drama. ^_^
Hi everyone! This is my first post ever and I would like to ask you all, what is your favorite brand of makeup brushes? I don't know anything about brushes so I wouldn't know where to begin on buying a particular brand. Thanks!
