I need to upload a pic soon...but I am very pale with rosacea (redddd cheeks) that I cover up with foundation. I just dyed my hair a light reddish brown. I am totally clueless as to what color blush would look good on me. I have several: Nars Orgasm (too shimmery for my liking) Tarte True Love (too red), Tarte Achiote (too dark), Tarte Peaceful (not bad for a light coral), Stila Color Converter in Peony (not a fan of cream blush), and Tarte Flush (too purply), oh and also a NYX in a medium pink color, it's not too bad. I really do love MATTE & POWDER blushes.............maybe someone could give me a few suggestions. Thanks!
I either get extremely dry to the point where my face looks like a desert, or I get extremely oily to the point where my face looks like I went swimming in the BP oil spill. I don't see a direct correlation between hormonal or environmental factors, and I wash my skin with oil controling soap along with using an oil controling lotion. Besides being completely at a loss when it comes to controlling my skin type, I am also a newbie at high end makeup. I would perfer a light to medium coverage but I would like buildability. Also, stating the obvious, it needs to be mattifying. Any suggestions of a foundation and finishing powder that can help me out? To set the record straight, no I was not attempting to go for the dewey look in any of these pictures
Saw Temptalia's post a couple of days ago on the Givenchy Fall collection for this year, and it's all so beautiful -- from the packaging to the colors. I mean, look at the burgundy leather encasement for the Le Rouge lipsticks! However, the only one I will probably get is the Blush Memoire De Forme Pop Up Jelly Blush in Rose Extravagant -- am I crazy to want to drop $37 on a blush?! :-\ Yikes... However, I feel that between the color and the packaging, it's something that I can admire for a while...as long as it doesn't dry up at some point. From Make Up 4 All blog From Fashion Trend Seeker
I have my formal coming up and I'm not sure what to do for my makeup and hair. My dress is navy blue with silver and gold sparkles at the top, I'm wearing silver shoes. I have blonde hair and blue eyes. This is my dress:
I saw the Sephora liquid moisturizer in the sale section. Watched it for three days, marked down from $22 to $11. I use that stuff right out of the shower, so I was worried about it being discontinued. I made A SIX HOUR ROUND TRIP just to get it. When I got to the store, the SA said it was $22 and not on sale! I whipped out my phone to show her AND IT HAD DISAPPEARED FROM THE SALE SECTION!! She made me feel like I was trying to pull one over on her. Did any of you guys see it? Or am I going crazy?!?

Good morning all. I just spotted this blush and bronzer palette from Sephora. Looks like a portion of the price goes to support Breast Cancer Research. http://www.sephora.com/the-beauty-giving-back-face -palette-P386618?skuId=1596105 Pretty! I am intrigued by ombre blush and bronzer in the center.
Has anyone tried/swatched these? I really hope these wear a.long time because I reallyyyyy want the apple/red one! I've been looking for something like this, and I love the cute chubby stick http://m.sephora.com/product/P387634?preferedSku=1 630698
I went to ulta after an appointment because I wanted to look at the TOO Faced palettes, the new ones, I ended up buying the rock n roll palette. As I was there a girl asked an Ulta worker if they had the Pulp Fiction in stock, I wanted so bad to tell her what I knew but I thought I'd be out of line to say it in front of the Ulta lady. Even when she had answered and stuff.. I just wanted to say "Sephora is going to have it in stock on the 22nd!" .. I didn't and eventually I lost track of her and I just made my way to the register. If you had been on this position, would you had gone through the lengths of telling her even if it meant an employee overhearing you? Thoughts? Side note, I bought the rock n roll palette, I opened it in my car and I looked closely and there were slight fingerprints on a couple of the shadows, I was pissed.. but being my lazy self and I was just bleh.. I didn't want to go back and demand an exchange.. then I just rubbed my finger over the shadow, I think I'll get over it but it still sucks that someone messed with the palette. Even a little carved dent is on my favorite shadow which happens to be glam rock, that's the shadow that led me to buy it.
Hi all! So I picked up the Amrezy palette today during my lunch break from work. My Ulta store only had 2 palettes (not including the tester) and I convinced a lady who I was standing next to and discussing palettes with to get the other one and the Chocolate Bar (yay for enabling total strangers! ). Anywayyyyy here are the swatches. Enjoy! Top: Legend, Glisten, Topaz, Iridescent Purple, Emerald Bottom: Vanilla, Caramel, Morocco, Deep Plum, LBD (Little Black Dress)
For some people drug store makeup suits their needs and their wallet. For others only high end designer labels will be found on their vanity. Other prefer to compromise with mid range, wanting higher quality than CVS, without a bank breaking price tag. Most like to mix and match. What do you guys find fills your makeup drawers? For me, most of my beauty products are mid range. I don't have a ton to spend, being a teenager off to college, but most drug store brands don't live up to my standards. I find mid range procudts meet my makeup desires, but are still affordable. That and my Clinique skin care purchases have left me with quite a few deluxe samples. While I wouldn't turn down a Tom Ford lipstick if someone offered it to me, I just currently can't justify dropping the money on one when MAC works perfectly well for me.
I am new to blush and recently bought several different brands of the powder type. I'm looking to upgrade my brush collection as well and need good recommendations. Price is not an issue if it's worth it. Tarte? Benefit? Too Faced? Let me know! Thanks!!
I LOVE THESE. (the powder ones) I just purchased: Peaceful, True Love, and Achiote. Next up, is Dollface & Tipsy. Has anyone tried the cheek stains by Tarte & are they worth it??? I've never used a cheek stain or cheek stick before. I am kind of new to blush. I do wear primer, foundation, powder and bronzer...so my next question is, at which point would I apply the stain? Thanks so much <3
