I thought this would be an interesting challenge as well as difficult, but also help you discover creative ways and/or using up something you feel guilty of buying but never using. I'm a bit of an impulse buyer when it comes to eyeshadows. I have several palettes but I usuall end up just using the same one or switch it up with another commonly used in my collection and I thought that should stop. Recently I've been good about rotating palettes but it still doesn't get much use that makes me happy I bought it. At first I thought "a month should do it" but I know not even I would be able to keep that promise. The challenge is this. To pick a product that you haven't really got much use out of, and use it for an entire week. So an example would be "I haven't used much of the Kat von D sinner palette so I'll use it for a week now." Here's a loophole to this. You pick your item but you can still use other shadows from other things, the point is that the item you've picked has to be in your daily look. It doesn't have to be palettes or singles only as long as you pick the item and stick to it for a whole week. That way we won't feel so guilty about not using it so much. The item that I will be picking will be the Kat von D Monarch palette. I use it every once in a while but I haven't for 7 consecutive days. So starting this Sunday, that palette will be part of my every day routine until Saturday. Summary: It doesn't have to be a palette, it can be a single eyeshadow. It doesn't have to be eye shadow, it can be a lippie, blush, or mascara. *edited to add foundation to the list* Yes, you can mix it with other products but this will be the item you won't leave behind in your daily routine for the 7 consecutive days. You don't have to post a picture of yourself if you don't want to, but if you want to take a picture of your item of choice, you can, and if you want. All you have to say to yourself is I can commit, I can accept, and I succeeded!
Okay I've seen pics and I can't seem to find anything online. I live in Canada and we can't get lorac products here but I'm going shopping in the states mid October and I want to know if it will be out by then! Does anyone know? I'm slightly desperate haha
I posted a previous post about starting a traveling box with samples and deluxe samples and a few ladies were interested in doing one! This is the 1st traveling box I am apart of and of course the 1st that I am starting. So, we need to decide if we are going to do a medium or small flat rate box. RULES No used items. No open items DO NOT take more than you put in. Let's keep this fun and fair DO NOT take multiples of the same sample PLEASE try not to keep the box more than 3 days Make sure to send your address to the person listed above you Once you send the box off, post the tracking number in this thread ALL unused items allowed (well maybe not nail polishes if it will make the shipping costs go up) Post a pic of what you take out, what you put in and what is left in the box before you send it off We are going to have fun and try to keep this going as long as we can! If you are interested in being in the box, I have a few spots left so post a pic of what samples you have in this thread to be added. To start off, we are only going to have 10 people! 1. CuriousCannibal 2. MegEm 3.MLLECC 4. tessie84 5. Kittichick 6. NicoleFrat 7. NightKnight 8. Sweetxteeth 9. Nishcakes 10. Kariyava
I have a few products that I was planning on returning, but would be interested in a trade.I have the ocho loco 2 set. I used most of the colors just once. There were a few colors that I sharpened. I have 2 YSL lipsticks that I swatched and they weren't the right color. I also have about 12 UD eyeshadows and again they were used maybe 3 times at the most. I was just going to return them but If someone has something I may be interested in trading, then I would be fine doing that!
Finally found pics from some blogs of the Holiday collection! Can't wait to pick up all of the matte lipsticks! I believe there will be 6 permanent matte lipsticks and 2 limited edition colours (possibly a matte black orchid!) Doesn't seem to be any new eyeshadow quads though, so I'm a bit disappointed as I wasn't able to get Nude Dip before it sold out everywhere here and Holt Renfrew never called me back when I had put my name down for one! There will also be new men's items. Please add any more pictures or swatches you come across of the Holiday collection. Can't wait to see swatches of the lipsticks!
Is anyone else in love with this new collection? While I think both the mirrors are crazy over priced, everything else is AMAZING. I have only gotten the eyeshadow palette so far but oh my god its perfect. Has anyone gotten anything from it? Is it worth getting any of the other sets??
The Armani Eye & Brow Maestro Creams are supposed to be total game changers, which can be used as eyeshadows, brow color, and even hair color (hair color - seriously?). There are 9 shades (described as iridescent), they are (apparently) waterproof and they (apparently) last 20 hours. I have to say I'm intrigued. What do you all think?
I don't know if these are new for all of you but this is the first day I see these up. Just a heads up http://www.sephora.com/melted-kisses-P390806?skuId =1640424 http://www.sephora.com/under-mistletoe-P390802?sku Id=1640440 http://www.sephora.com/beauty-wishes-sweet-kissees -P390807?skuId=1640416 http://www.sephora.com/la-belle-carousel-P390808?s kuId=1640408
I just watched NikkiTutorials video on Chanel's Cruise F/W 2014/2015 runway and I AM OBSESSED WITH IT! I'm recreating it tonight on my sister. I also love Chanel's S/S 2014 My favorite hairstyle would have to be from Dolce & Gabbana What's everyone's favorite runway makeup or hairstyle?
Why can't they just get a discount on the product and have it available for everyone??! Its ridiculous. I was really looking forward to it and I received an email today saying that it is in stock so I click on it and it says YOU MUST BE A VIB ROUGE. Im a VIB (although online it says I'm not... seriously can someone explain to me why the lady at sephora gave me the VIB card when it says I'm not one online?) anyways i thought to share this in case any non vib rouges were gonna get it. I think its available for the general public october 1
I thought it would be fun to post our drugstore finds that are as good or better than the high-end stuff. Most of my makeup is high-end and NARS is one of my favorite brands. But there are two products that I think beat their high-end competition: NYX Soft Matte Lip Cream. I cannot love this product more! Beautiful colors and so pigmented. And for $6, it's a steal. Maybelline Dream Finish BB Cream. A little goes a long way with this product. I also have the Smashbox BB cream, and the Maybelline goes on better and doesn't look cakey and doesn't dry out my skin. Love it! And it's only $8.
Have you guys seen these?! There are tons of shades and finishes to choose from, and you can build your own palette! I can't wait to try these; I wonder if Sephora will carry all of the shades? There are so many and I'd really like to go in and test a good chunk of them. http://www.sephora.com/artist-shadow-P387670?skuId =1622745
Whenever I watch fashion shows, I would watch them for the makeup more so than the clothes (which are fantastic in any case!). I thought it'd be fun to start a thread of favourite inspirational makeup photos Here are a few of mine from the latest NYFW SS15.
Hey guys! Just wanted to let everyone know about the ABH event happening on Sep. 20th at Toronto's Eaton Centre. It's appointment-only, from 12-7pm. Anastasia herself will be there, as well as her brow team to give you a mini brow makeover. The makeover will consist of filling in/shaping brows and showing you different techniques for what you want to achieve. No plucking/waxing involved! Also, I heard from an SA that if you buy any Anastasia product during the event, you will get a GWP (a clear brow gel & brow powder, apparently).

I have been haunting the HK section, hoping a few leftovers may turn up (Other than the two that are always there). Look what I found! Already signed up to be notified. Looking forward to seeing this collection, and I hope they have a launch party for Rouge!
I have very, very, VERY pale skin. Pretty much any product I use to contour always ends up being way too dark and noticeable against my pale skin. I've been using a bronzer by Estee Lauder to contour recently, but I almost out of it so I need a new product, and it is way too dark on me for me to ever reconsider purchasing it. I've also tried a couple eyeshadows from Estee Lauder to contour (all of them were brown with gray undertones), but they still seemed to dark for my skin. Anyone know of a good LIGHT contour product? I really want my contouring to look natural, but with my pale skin that seems almost impossible. I would love to hear suggestions that anyone might have! Brand or price do not matter to me so I'm open to pretty much anything. I'm also eurasian so I have a yellow undertone on my skin if that makes a difference.
Hi everyone! I recently am looking for a new brush cleaner that is in a good price range and of course has good reviews. Do any of you girls have any reccomendations? I was exploring in the brush cleaner section online and I stumbled upon an exclusive brush cleaner from the Sephora Collection, and it was only $7. Should I buy that for $7 or should I buy a different brand that is better quality? Also, should I possibly get the $15 one that is bigger and can last longer. Thanks for your help!
I'm looking to add a liquid luminizer to my liquid foundation. Since my office is inside of a Walmart, I thought it would be convenient to pick one up here. What kind is good? I need one that wont break me out!
What do you gals use to clean your brushes daily? I am looking for a good instant brush cleaner, something I can use on a paper towel or Kleenex and rub my brush against to get the makeup out and sanitize. I do wash with soap and water weekly, but I can't do it every day so I like to use something quick. I've been using MAC's brush cleaner for years, but since I have been using liquid foundation, it does not remove it all properly from the brush. The one Sephora sells did not clean my brushes AT ALL and I returned it. Thanks!
Sephora just teamed up with the best brush cleaner in the world Parian Spirit and there doesn't seem to be any reference to it on their website, like "new products." Not sure why they are trying to keep it a secret. It's called simply: Sephora "Citrush Brush Cleaner" by Parian Spirit. Same natural formulation with no preservatives. Cleans, conditions and disinfects your brushes. You just need a little bit and then dry it off completely with a terry cloth or paper towel. No water needed. Cleans all types of makeup, foundations, even latex, acrylic and glues for eyelashes. The ultimate professional grade product for your home use.
