Hey ladies (and gents?) – As 2013 is coming to a close, I thought we’d like to share the best products we discovered/tried/bought this year. Let’s break it into sub-categories. I’ll go first Face – Laura Mercier Silk Crème foundation – I feel like this is my holy grail foundation, but I still want to try others. Eyes – Laura Mercier Artist palette – It won’t be a Laura Mercier list, I promise Lips – Dior Crème de Rose lip balm Best deal – I’m going to cheat and say two: All the mini perfumes for 100 points instead of 250 points and the Nars Guy Bourdin blush palette PS – Sorry I’ve started waaay too many threads the past few days. That’s what cabin fever will do to ya! Well, that and draining your wallet from all the online shopping you do. Lol PPS - Feel free to add other categories as well, these were the only ones I could think of at the moment.
Anyone else get uber starstruck when someone you admire comments on your social media posts? Ahhhh I about dies this morning when valerievixenart commented on the picture of her facechart that I tried to recreate. I hope one day I can be as skilled as this woman!
Has anyone received theirs yet? I just took a peek at my glam room (though I always tell myself not to) and I am pretty pleased with my goodies! The Pop eyeshadow trio is so pretty, I hope I get the natural palette. We always get Be a Bombshell items, which I don't mind. I've never owned an "all over" stick so I'm excited to get it. Nail polish again, which is okay for me. I'm not a big nail person. And I own and love a lot of NYX lip products and Ardell lashes so I am very happy about those! What's in your bag and what do you think of your items? Is this month's bag worth the ten dollars for you?
The glam room has finally updated, pretty fast considering it usually take around the 12th. Im so excited in trying the mirabella brush, nyx lipstick (never tried it), and be a bombshell. Love to know what you guys are gettings!
One of my biggest problems, beauty wise, has always been makeup transfer. My makeup rubs off everywhere! It has turned me into the most awful hugger because I fear the embarrassment of getting my makeup all over somebody's clothing lol I also had a very embarrassing experience recently and got makeup on a guy's nose from kissing and rubbing noses. He didn't seem to mind, but still totally embarrassing for me. Any suggestions on how to prevent this from happening?
Use Verve on the inner corner of eye as well as brow bone. Then take pistol and cover lid. using black out on the outer corner of eye, under the lash line and up into the crease, blend up and out. Use urban decay 24/7 glide on pencil in zero above lash line and smudge into lash line. Instagram @marissapasick
Hey guys! So i'm 13 years old, about 5'4 and 124 pounds. I just kinda want to lose a few pounds cuz y'all probs know how hard it is to be even the slightest bit "bigger" in this society. I'm not like fat or anything but losing the weight wouldnt hurt. My boyfriends pretty supportive of it. I'm generally active... I do cross country therefore I run everyday. Please answer soon i'd really appreciate it. xoxo, Jessi
so i am about to purchase the KVD foundation and i cannot decide which brush to go along with it, i would want a brush that will give me a full coverage, airbrush look. there is just so many i can't decide and i don't wanna risk buying the wrong one. is there anyone who uses this foundation, and if so which brush do you use to apply it? oh i am going to purchase the beauty blender to try it out, i still want a brush though.
I've never been somewhere that someone applies makeup to my face, so Sephora in JCP just opened up next to me and suppppper excited since I don't have to travel more than an hour away to one anymore! That said, I'm going tomorrow for their Too Faced : Joy to the Girls event for BIs. WOOHOOOO!!! So is it proper to go bare faced or should I wear atleast my face makeup (foundation / powder)? I mean I don't want to waste my personal product nor do I want to look like a zombie walking in there. lol
Just ran into these babies while browsing dermstore. Anyone here a Vincent Longo fan? I've been curious about his stuff but it's hard to come by. The eyeshadows seemed pretty nice when I swatched some at Nordstroms. These sets are so tempting and appear to be on sale today!
Has anyone been waiting for Wayne Goss (gossmakeupartist) brushes? He previewed them briefly on youtube and now beautylish has close-up photos available. It says they'll be arriving in September but doesn't give an exact date. The brushes look gorgeous but they're pretty pricey. I guess considering they're hand-made by artisans in Japan they're quite a steal, but I was hoping to get the entire set and now I'm not sure.
I ordered a Naked3 palette a little while ago and got such a kick out of the reviews. So many of them are "can't wait to get it" or "I just ordered!" People are voting "no" for the "Was this review helpful" question. http://www.sephora.com/naked3-P384099
Does sephora give samples? If yes, what kinds? Because I have been looking at some products but I dont want to spen full price to find out if i like it or not. And any suggestions for samples to try out? Ill try most things!
Hey guys, so I've had this palette for about a month and a half now. I've used it several times but have noticed this is the kind of palette you use more either on a date or on a girls' night out. I'm a makeup beginner so this is my first palette and even though I love the colors, it's not for an everyday look. Should I return it and just get one of the naked palettes instead and which one should I try? My complexion is a neutral tanned brown not too warm/cool toned, black hair and dark brown eyes (think Hale Berry) and my veins lean more towards the green side.
I hope Im not the only one… I received a delivery confirmation that my Sephora package was delivered to my front door at 7:31PM. My husband was home all night. The UPS guy usually knocks on the door… I left for my dance class around 7:30 ish and actually followed the UPS truck starting a house or two down from mine. I never saw him stop the truck when I was backing down my driveway. I get home from dance around 9:00 and see the delivery confirmation email so I rush to my doorstep… no box! We live up a ways from the street and no one ever walks near our porch. I check with my neighbors - it wasn't misdelivered to them I call UPS they say to call Sephora. I call Sephora and they have to wait 24 hours before reporting a claim. The Rouge Customer Service lady was great, but I was so so so so sad (ok I cried a little), because some of my items are no longer available so if this box is lost, then I can't get them. My husband and I think that the UPS guy just scanned the label to show delivered and then kept driving (because our driveway is dark, its freezing cold and it was past 7:30). I am really upset because I know that no one would have taken it off of our porch. I REALLY think it wasn't delivered. I hope it wasn't delivered to the UPS guy's wife. or to a sneaky neighbor (look at how my imagination is running wild!) When it comes to my Sephora orders, I'm pretty protective What are your thoughts? I want this-
I'm trying to stick to 45-50 per pay...and over 26 pays per year I should still qualify for rouge every year, although I've been going over budget a lot. How does everyone else budget or find extra funds to support their addiction?lol
Holidays are around the corner.. And I am sure all of us are getting all pretty and made up!! What is your go to/statement holiday makeup look? Mine - it depends!! But most of the time - a lot of mascara neutral smokey eye and red lip OR colorful (but appropriate) eye shadow and nutral/pink lip.
This collection is launching Dec. 26th. I need to get my hands on those purple lipsticks!!! For those of you who missed Hautecore on Black Friday it should be in this collection. credits to makeupstash dot com. The post also said there might also be 3 pigments and 3 nail polishes. All Races, Idol eyes, Magic Moor, Carbon Jet Boy, No Apologies, Dark Outsider
Just thought I'd let y'all know this promotion is currently going on on the Laura Mercier site! My top 3 picks would be Amethyst (a cult favorite for a reason!), Sand Glow (taupe perfection), and Rose Gold
I read on a post that the Guerlain Meteorites were being revamped. What is the difference between them and the Hourglass Ambient lighting powders. I have not tried either but just order the ambient lighting powder in difussed tonight.
