So I just used 2 of my Guerlain powders--1 is the Terracotta Light Bronzer and the other is the pressed Meteorites Voyage. Both have that signature violet scent. I've had these powders for almost a year and I've used them on very few occasions and always with clean brushes. When I used them today, I noticed that my brush had a weird sour smell when I ran it across my nose. I thought maybe it was my brush so I tried another brush with the bronzer and still got that sour smell. Then I thought maybe my foundation was causing that smell so I used another brush, swirled it around my face and there was no scent so I'm pretty sure that sour smell is coming from my Guerlain powders. My question is, has anyone else noticed that their Guerlain powders smell sour? Have my powders expired or is that normal? There isn't any suggested expiration date on the packaging, and I don't see parabens in the ingredients...just benzyl alcohol so I'm assuming the lack of many preservatives means that it goes bad quickly...which sucks...they were so expensive and honestly performed mediocrely and now they've possibly gone bad. Update: According to his article, some people just pick up the violet scent as being sour...so I guess it's not bad? Interesting that different people smell things different though. http://www.dailymail.co.uk/sciencetech/article-238 3238/Love-smell-beer-cheese-Thank-DNA-Scientists-c ...
Visionnaire 310 bisque is what was determined at the counter with consultant. I had a slight tan. I bought 250 bisque and still seems too dark. Am I on the right track? What would be one shade lighter? I have olive/yellow undertones.
Has anyone noticed that with the new DiorSkin Star foundations, the color names are the same but the shades are different? I bought my usual color of Dark Beige that I get in Dior Flawless and it's darker in DiorSkin Star than normal. Has anyone else noticed this?
i went into sephora to get color matched for foundation. according to the iq my number is 1y07. i want to try the dior star foundation but not sure which shade to try since its not yet on the iq. i was thinking shade 21 linen

Benefit has a new cream blush out! It's only on HSN currently, and it costs $28, but it's on three flexpays and free shipping!!! I am so so tempted to get it, but I want to see reviews and swatches first. The HSN presentation is also uploaded already if you want to see that. Will anyone be getting this?? It's tempting and less than $10 to try it!
It's not letting me post pictures-whyyyy???? Anyway, there is a new eyeshadow palette and the Rose Gold SSP in Liquid Form out! Yay! I really want to compare swatches between the pressed and liquid. The palette is all matte and really pretty, but the last three colors look pretty similar. There's info. and pictures on Temptalia if you want to go see, but the pictures are not uploading...
I knew it was supposed to come out this week but not monday. The whole collection isnt up though, and its not even up on the mac website. Dont know whats going on but i went ahead and got the two things i was going to get anyways lol just thougt you would all like to know!
For many of you who were disappointed with Sephora no longer carrying Korres makeup line, they have their foundation, concealer, blushes, Volcanic mascara, etc. on sale for 50% or more off through Hautelook!
Remember the infamous Monica Lewinsky lipstick from Club Monaco that she wore on the 20/20 interview with Barbara Walters? I remember the lipstick was called Glaze and the lip liner Bare. I actually had the lipstick but never got the liner. Do any of you all have a swatch of what the lip liner looked like. I looked on the internet but there are no swatches out there of it. It is described as a yellow brown. Thank you
Hsn is having a deal on lorac! 3 matte lip pencils for $24 (normally retails for $16 each) and 2 pro liner pen for $23 (normally $23 each). The lip set comes in a nude set or a pink set and the liners comes with 1 brown and 1 black. I tried to resist but I just can't pass up a good deal. I've never tried the lip pencils but I love their pro liner pen. Not sure when the deal ends.
Hi all! I hope you all are well. Has anyone tried the reformulated Kat Von D liquid lipsticks? What do you think of them? I really want to try them but I would really like to know what you ladies think of them if you have tried them. Thanks so much!
I currently use Lancome Teint Idole Ultra 24 hrs in 220 Buff C. What would be the closest match to this in the Givenchy Photo Perfexion foundation? I am down to my last drops of the Lancome and would like to try something new. My local Sephora is small and does not carry the Givenchy to match in store. Thanks so much!
