so i used to use the mac 217 and i remember liking that brush, about 2 years ago i lost it somewhere and i picked up the sephora classic crease shadow brush #73 . Its decided to crap out on me and is actually hurting my eyelids when i'm using it . Any reccomedations on a new one? I'd like to spend $20 or under maybe a little more for something amazing that will last me a few more years. Ps i wash and care for my brushes often
I desperately need your advice ladies. For days I have been going back and forth from what brushes to order to where to buy them from. One thing is for sure.....I want the F80 brush. Options to purchase at: Sigma site - shipping is about $9 and there's a 10% discount code plus a free gift over $30 spent. Amazon - free shipping over $35. Even though the item is from an authorized seller, I was reading reviews that they may be dupes Charmiss which is a store in Jersey that carries Sigma but it's a bit over an hour away. Im thinking I should just order from Sigma and get a few more brushes since the S&H is the same and I won't place more than one order. Sigma Kabuki Kit has the F80 brush plus 4 others and I was thinking about the Synthetic Precision 4 piece set. It's on sale for $45 but I'm. It sure if I can actually use them as eye brushes. Sorry for the lengthy thread but I'm having such a difficult time deciding which doesnt happen offen
Prom is right around the corner and I desperately need to find a foundation that is good for taking pictures! I tried looking at some at target and ulta, but can't find one that I like so if anyone can help me, that would be great!
Hi ladies, I'm wondering if anyone else has the same problem as I do with the liptars? They're so pigmented, long lasting, and the colors are amazing , but it's so messy! It's so hard to put on sometimes and you really have to be patient in my opinion. It's also really drying so I'm trying to decide if it's worth the hassle. xoxo, Kelly
so i got an email the other day for a delux sample of the guerlain meteorits sample the other day i was so thrilled because i wanted to try this . I could go in the store and try it on but the idea of getting to play with it was much better lol . I went to check out with the code the next day and it was expired already. Does anyone know if i can get these in store or is it gone forever lol
Has anybody contacted Hourglass and/or received a response about the missing mini primer? When I ordered my palette, it was included in the description on their website. I checked when I heard rumors it was missing in packages and it looks like it was removed from the description at some point (after many orders were placed). I think Sephora removed that part before it went live so at least they were upfront about what we're getting in the mail. That mini-primer pushed me over the edge and got me to order the kit because it added value to $45 worth of product for $58 (plus value for the different shades available I guess). Plus, I really like my primer and would have liked a travel size for when I visit my family this weekend.
Hi all! Sorry I haven't been around lately. Life got in the way. Anyway. Summer is coming up, and the inevitable wearing of fewer clothing items, which means chest will be showing. My problem is this: My face is pink, my neck is a darker yellow, and my chest matches my face (pinker and lighter). I've heard that you'd want to match summer foundation to your chest, so there isn't an obvious color difference. Thing is, there's a color difference even if my foundation matches my chest. My neck won't cooperate at all, so I have a foundation line at my jaw. tl;dr If a foundation matches my face and chest, it won't match my neck. I'm not sure what to do in this situation, so any advice would be appreciated.
I've been such a slave to Sephora & Ulta that I no longer own any drug store makeup. I'm on a tight budget right now so therefore I must downgrade on a few items. What are you favorite drug store or department store makeups? Eyeliners/Mascaras/Gloss/Eyeshadow...anything...Th anks!
Has anyone come across make-up removing wipes that don't have a smell to them? I've tried nearly every Neutrogena wipe out there (as well as Olay, etc.) and all of them seem to have perfumes in them. It's not a huge problem for me as my skin doesn't break out because of this, but I just personally would prefer to not have my skin smell like pink buttfruit every time I try and clean my face. Any recommendations?
I've seen women who can wear a full face of make up while working out - foundation, eyeliner, everything! I wouldn't wear any myself, because I frankly sweat like a pig and looking pretty/decent/presentable/human is probably the last thing on my mind, but I do marvel the ladies who can look so put together even when they're running or doing reps. I'm really curious how their makeup stays put. I can barely get my eyeliner to stay even when I'm not exercising and not end up with raccoon eyes! :/ (I'm a totally new makeup noob, btw....) Any workout goddesses want to share their secrets?
I try to be so careful about not getting foundation on my clothes, but I had a major blunder today. Has anyone had success with a product, or cleaning methods, to get foundation out of their clothes? Regular washing did not work. The Lock-It foundation is pretty thick and I dripped/dropped onto my pants, so it's not just a smudge. My pants are chocolate brown so bleach would stain. I'm just hoping I'm not the only one....
I am making a short trip to Tokyo this summer. While a lot of it will be sight seeing, I most definitely will curve out time for shopping. So I just want to hear everyone's suggestions on things worth picking up! I am am not looking for foundations, concealors or powder (unless it's absolutely amazing, contemplating on Cle de peau concealor which is cheaper there). No eyeshadows either, maybe a few mascaras, liquid eyeliners, lip products and as many blushes/cheek products as I see fit and most certainly brushes. (I want to get some hakuhodo or chikuhodo, but any other suggestions are totally welcome) I would prefer something that's more accessible. I recall reading about some products that aren't sold outside of Japan (makeup), and I remember making a note to myself that I should get them when I go but I can't seem to remember. Anyone? So far (just so we don't duplicate) I have my eyes on -Kate mascara base -Kate cream blush (that comes in a jar) -Jill Stuart blush (just because it's so pretty) -Majorica majorca mascar Lastly any tips on good stores, getting around, places to see? Any suggestions are highly appreciated! Last lastly, any other non-makeup related must buys? Thanks tons!
I have heard many great things about the KGD foundations. The only drawback is that none of the Sephora locations near me (Canada) carry this brand. I didn't want to purchase without testing for compatibility, shade, etc. So I wrote to KGD and they were nice enough to mail some samples of their Moisture Foundation, Aqua Foundation, (in 5 shades) and some skin care samples to address my dry, acne prone skin. They delivered beyond my expectations. I was only looking to find my foundation shade. But ended up receiving a bunch of samples to help with my skin issues as well. I'm truly happy with all the skin care samples I get to try out tonight. I may have to break my no-buy commitment
so after swatting urban decay's newest pen liner i was super excited!! The felt tip is perfect and the liner is SUPER black. after having it for about days & using it maybe 3 times......THE LINER DRIED OUT! I could not believe this!! It was perfect while it lasted =/ better than my HG Stila pen liner. Im so upset by it. i did take it back. It gave the perfect wing liner too =(
I have a little bit of BareMinerals Foundation left that I do not want to use anymore, but I have no idea what I should do with it. Toss it out seems like a waste, but I really have no use of it, nor does anyone around me. Same with the Mineral Veil. Any genius ideas? I know y'all BTers here have amazing ideas for practically everything.
I've been looking for a all-in-one makeup palette for travel, but it seems they sell out pretty fast (or aren't replenished often). Ideally, I want something with a blush, mascara, eyeliner, a lip color, and a few eye shadows. (I'm not really focusing on the foundation since most of these palettes are for lighter skin than mine.) Suggestions?
