There was someone who was going to do a foils/small sample TSB. I do not believe that person is still going to do it. If they are, I apologize and will not do one. I have been in two boxes and loved it but I have never started one. If anyone is still interested, I am willing to try to start one. We can use the same rules from the other TSB. Please let me know if anyone is interested. Also we need to decide if we want to do this with a small flat rate box (I believe shipping is around $6.00) or a medium flat rate box (I believe shipping is around 13.00). If you are going to participate, please be prepared for the shipping costs! This box is open for US shipping only. Shipping becomes more expensive for Canada. Once we decide if we want to do a small or medium box I will post pics of what I will start the box out with. If at that time someone decides they don't like what I am starting the box out with just let me know. I want this to be fun for all. Once I get the box back I will go through it & give the leftover items to the local youth group who works with the homeless shelters in Fredericksburg VA.

Hi ladies, Is it weird that I use other items like dark brown eyeshadow as a bronzer? it shows up on my skin a lot better and you don't have to use such a heavy hand because it's already really pigmented saving you product! I like to use other eyeshadows as a highlight or cream blush as a lip color (though it can be a little drying). Does anyone else do this? Also, what items do you multipurpose with? xoxo, Kelly saving money YAY
Hey, im 15 and have i combination skin (oily in the t-zone). Every time I apply foundation, it never seems to smudge and if i try my begins to be very dry and irritated. Is there any thing that can fix this problem? Also,applying moisturizes never seems to help.
I was on Reddit's Makeup Addiction and user MyLittleLabMonkey posted a sneak preview of the new Too Faced Summer Collection. I didn't find a previous discussion on it, so sorry if it's a repost!

C'mon, let's admit it, we've all hidden make-up or made up what we use to our family. Remember the days for some of us where we had to pretend we didn't wear make-up and we put a lipstick under the bed so mom wouldn't see? Or lied about how much you've spent? Welcome to: Make-Up Confessions! (Just please don't tell my grandma about my extensive Guerlain collection! I think she may have saw the packaging though...) My grandma prefers I use cheaper make-up from drugstores... oh man, that VIB card is not going to make her happy...
IT HAS ARRIVED!!!! I did not risk waiting this one out until Chic Week, because if it sold out, I would be so angry with myself (of course in all of my excitement I forgot to use my ebates, drat)! Have fun, ladies! http://www.sephora.com/le-prismissime-euphoric-pin k-lip-cheek-palette-P385546?skuId=1575356
I'm getting married in 5 months (wow, that really snuck up on me), and I'd love some help deciding on my wedding makeup! Foundation/primer: In the summer I have oily skin and am about NC20. I want a full coverage foundation that will last me most of the day in the heat and humidity (we are doing a destination wedding). I was thinking MUFE HD but am not sure how this will hold up in those conditions. Blush: Would love some suggestions! One of the new Hourglass maybe? Eyes: Naked 3 possibly? I think I want to go the neutral pink route but am open to suggestions! Lips: Again, something pinky nude. MAC Creme Cup possibly? I will post a picture shortly!
Hi, I am 14 and pretty new to makeup. But I do want a makeup routine that will be fast so I can do it before school and have more than mascara and blush on. I have brown eyes and black hair. I also have olive skin. I am willing to invest in products too. I love the look of like a 50s cat eye, think Kate Spade. If you could make me a list of products and directions on how to apply them that would be great. Please help me! Thank you so much!
i got this as a sample awhile ago and i really loved it it covered my dark circles under my eyes and wasn't drying like most other under eye things i've used . but i can't bring myself to spend $41 for something so small and also one of the reviews said she liked the sample but the product was different which has happened to me before does anyone know of something similar for a better price
Hi I am from Minnesota, and will going to Kauai, Hawaii for an eight day vacation, in February of 2015 and was wondering if I will melt if I wear any eye make up, or foundation? I went to the Virgin Islands last year and didn't have a problem, but I feel this might be different then that, mainly because when I went to the Virgin Islands it was on a cruise and this upcoming trip will be directly on the island renting a cottage by the ocean with some friends. I also don't want to bring high quality makeup with me and have it be ruined by the humidity? anybody have any good suggestions aside from going to the Virgin Islands last year I haven't gone on a vacation aside from visiting family living in Grand Rapids Michigan since fifth grade. I'm kind of out of my element here. LOL.
I know I'm not the only one who desperately misses Kat Von D's Lock-it Tattoo Foundation in Shade 42. It was an ivory / porcelain, almost white shade. I bought it online for the first time recently (Christmas) and was so happy with it, I went to my local Sephora to buy more. Sadly, it's gone. I bought the shade that's now the lightest and should've worked for me -- 44 -- but it was too dark. It's terrible!! Why is 42 gone? I know many of us wore it because it was the only full coverage foundation that lived up to everything I wanted (long lasting, stayed matte, covers well), and actually MATCHED my super-fair skin for once. Before I found Lock-it shade 42, I was using Hourglass Vanilla. I love the coverage -- stays put, doesn't break me out, lasts a long time, looks elegant, doesn't get greasy -- but it's just a smidge too dark. I've also tried Porcelain (same as vanilla shade but for yellow skin tones) but I obviously need something pink because it made me look sallow and weird. Anyway, the characteristics I'm looking for: 1. matches my very light skin 2. full coverage (buildable is fine) 3. long lasting - doesn't get greasy or require touch ups My Kat Von D Lock-it Tattoo Foundation in shade 42 was everything I ever wanted and now it's gone... just to reiterate. I want to try Illamasqua but the light shades are always shown as "out of stock" online and I've been told they don't know if they'll get them in stores either. I've tried a few others. Occasionally I use a Chanel foundation that's been a fall-back for years, but it still looks a little too dark / yellow for me in natural light (even though the girls at the Nordstrom counter swear it matches me - it does NOT). The worst one I've tried lately that was supposed to match me was YSL Le Teint Touche Eclat in Beige 10 - really bad. Not only was it a bad match, but it must be made for someone with really dry skin. I have combination skin. Not only was I yellow and greasy in an hour, but it didn't cover, at all. I don't want another experience like I had with YSL. I have combination skin that's less oily these days (lots of chemical peels to help close pores) and I need a makeup that will last even on my oilier days. Any help would be appreciated. I am subscribed to a few threads already. I'm posting this because I'm extremely frustrated that I finally found the perfect foundation after all this time and it's now discontinued. I sometimes wonder if it's a conspiracy to get us ultra-light porcelain people to use self-tanner. Maybe that's why it's impossible to find makeup in our perfect shade.
I just got my Sephora order with the Chocolate Bar palette and the Stila 100 point lippie... And they both look used. The Chocolate Bar had one of the pans popped out, and all the rest have smudges of other colors on them and look like there have been fingers wiped across them. The Stila lippie is squashed and there's color all down the side of the tube! What the heck, Sephora?!
So I've accumulated a decent collection of brushes and have started to wonder when/how would you use each of them. I mean I know the powder brush, the eyeliner brush and the crease brush, but aside from that..... What are your favorite brush brands? or which brand for which type? - Absolutely love the round Sephora concealer brush - Like Real Technique Expert Face brush for foundation, even better than the US one, mostly because it's a tad less dense and easier to clean. What type of brush do you use most often? eyeshadow, crease, smudge, eyeliner, stippling, fan, round powder, domed, angled? - I usually use an eyeshadow or crease brush to dust on 1 or 2 shadows and that's it (along with eyeliner and curled lashes). - For face I usually use round powder brush for everything, sometimes fan brush for pigmented blush/bronzer. Tips for using brushes? - I just got into foundation recently, and for the life of me cannot get un-streaky finish with the flat foundation brush, so I always put a little foundation on back of my hand and pick up a little with a dense round brush then dust on with short strokes. It gives me a more natural finish, and I use less. o.O And lastly, has anyone tried Japonesque brushes? I fell in love with their Safari Chic collection. .
I know better than to let anyone at Sephora do any makeup services on me, but I had a moment of weakness yesterday, and I let them do my eye makeup and apply false lashes. I am 50 years old, and you just cannot put eye makeup on me like you would on an 18 or 25 year old. I walked out of there looking like an aging circus clown, and I honestly looked freakish. It made me feel so old, ugly, and depressed. Also, the lighting in-store was so poor that I could not see the full result of just how freakish it was until I walked out into the sunlight. I really wish that Sephora would be a little more sensitive to the needs of us older gals. I doubt that will ever happen, because I see such a reluctance for them to even add a mature skin section to this forum even after several of us have requested it. I am not even sure what I am expecting from posting this, but I just feel so awful and traumatized today. The whole experience just left me feeling so badly about myself and aging
Eleven new WG brushes coming to Beautylish! The Face Set: $265, available in March And the Eye Set: $148, available in April Whyyyy...I totally can not afford these right now, but I am certain that I will buy at least a few individual brushes!
A couple times a week...... I guess Sephora has a way of doing this to me. I just ordered on Saturday because I noticed the Sephora favorite mascara set was back in stock. Then today I get an email for a set of 3 Origin products. Please tell me I'm not alone and you all do this too
I find that when I do my makeup shopping. I tend to always buy purple shades in shadows, liners, and crayons. I don't know why that is, but it's my go to color. So I want to know what's everyone go to color? What draws you in over and over.
Ok, this needs to be done. Starting this thread has been mentioned before, but I'm taking the leap. Below, I'll start a list of commonly mispronounced beauty brands, so please comment if you want to correct me or add another brand. This is for all you perfectionists out there! Anastasia : ah-na-STAH-see-uh Borghese : bore-GAY-zeh Boscia : BOE-sha Bourjois : boor-zjwah Caudalie : COE-dah-lee Chanel : shun-NELL Chantecaille : shahn-tuh-KAI Ciate : see-AH-tay Clinique : clih-NEEK Ellis Faas : EHL-is FAHS Estee Lauder : EHS-tay LAH-der Givenchy : zjee-VON-shee Guerlain : gare-LAHN Illamasqua : il-lahm-MAS-ka Jouer : zjoo-EH Jurlique : jer-LEEK Koh Gen Do : coh gen doh (hard g) Kevyn Aucoin : KEH-vin ow-CWAH Korres : koh-REHZ Laura Mercier : LOH-rah mehr-see-AE (r is a French nasal r) Lancome : lahn-comb L'Occitane en Provence : LOHX-ee-tahn uhn pro-VAHNCE LORAC : lah-ROCK Marchesa : mar-KAY-zuh NYX : nix Ole Henriksen : OO-lah ON-rick-son Omorovicza : oh-more-oh-VEET-sah Shiseido : shih-SAY-doh Shu Uemura : SHOO oo-eh-MOO-rah Stila : STEE-lah Yves Saint Laurent : EVE sahn loh-RAHN Feel proud if you've been saying them right! We're all pretty much brand snobs here, be it Neutrogena or Tom Ford. Also, the French people are annoying. Most of these brands are French!
