I have been using Bare Minerals for some time and I like it but am feeling like I need an update and maybe a little more coverage. I would prefer not to wear a liquid make up because I tend to sweat it off in the warmer temperatures. I don't want to waste my time to basically see all the makeup wiped away within a few minutes of leaving my house. I want to look natural but still have some coverage. Does anyone have any suggestions?
Hi I have been using the dior star foundation in shade 020 and liked it. However to my dismay, it has been discontinued on Sephora.com and I ran out of my last bottle. Can you suggest me a suitable/or better alternative? Best, Sabi
I am new to the blogging community and I just wanted some feedback on my first review! https://reviewingwithlg.blogspot.com/ I love reading reviews and writing them, so I figured "Why not start a blog?"
I am interested in buying an eye palette for everyday makeup looks and I'm trying to figure out what to buy next. I already bought the Urban Decay Naked 2 palette so that's out. Information about me is that I have green eyes and my skin tone is light to median.
I am wondering what people think as the best concealer for blemishes. I don't like ones with salicylic acid. I was using shape tape and the nars soft matte but both are too pink in my shade and doesn't fully cover. Any suggestions?
Can anyone recommend a lightweight foundation/BB cream/CC cream that I can use when I am lounging around at home or running errands on a weekend? Don't want the full foundation look on days like that, and I don't have anything that isn't full coverage. Any help would be appreciated!
Beauty Bakerie is a cruelty-free, vegan, and mostly gluten free cosmetic company that I am currently obsessed with. The Lip Whips (matte liquid lipsticks) are too legit to quit. They come in multiple finishes (matte & metallic mainly along with one gloss color so far) and the range of colors is to die for. There are bright daring colors, darker bolder ones, colors you would never imagine in lipstick form! The smudge-proof, budge-proof factor alone would be enough to reel the average beauty maniac into the fold of Beauty Bakerie. The packaging for their products is really nice looking (the highlighters come in containers that look like ice cream pints!!! They even have their own makeup remover for the lip whips because they are THAT smudge-proof, budge-proof. So yeah, you guys should look into testing Beauty Bakerie at some of your locations. You're seriously missing out. 💋💋💋
Hi! I have combination to dry skin that's acne prone, so I would like something that is oil-free. I am looking for a foundation that has light to medium coverage that is super lightweight. Thank you in advance!
I am deciding whether to get the sephora pro dimensional highlighting pallet because there arent a whole lot of good reviews.I mean I do want a very dewy, wet look but not sure if its worth the money.... any reviews?
Since I got more views than I expected on my first post I decided to make a follow up with Asian mascaras I hauled from my Asia trip! I have stick-straight Asian lashes that get weighed down by almost every formula, so mascara wasn't something I wore often at all. UNTIL NOW! Here's the first thread with my experience with Western brands: http://community.sephora.com/t5/Makeup/TIPS-FOR-STRAIGHT-ASIAN-LASHES/m-p/2720734#M129691 I did a ton of research before my trip so I could grab all the holy grail mascaras on the Asian part of the Internet, and I'd like to share my feedback so that some of you straight lash gals don't have to waste your money. For the record, they're all amazing and each one holds a curl!! This was my biggest factor. For comparison, my Shu Uemura petal lash mascara was my old favourite because it holds my curl all day and doesn't smudge. The tradeoff though was that it looked too natural and gave me almost no volume. A close second is the benefit they're real. In no order whatsoever: 1. Fairy Drops Platinum Waterproof Mascara This was probably the most raved about in my research. I got it at Sasa in Hong Kong (like an Asian Sephora beauty haven) for about $20 CAD and it is my new favourite!! It does everything it says: curls your lashes and gives them volume. It even added length. My lashes look absolutely fantastic with this mascara and I wear mascara every day now when I never did before. Just to further explain how much this product is worth, my lashes literally are not visible with no mascara on them. I completely gave up on my lashes, eternally convinced they would never look good. But now I have this!! The wand is shaped really weird and looks like three balls put together but this stuff does the job. I can't say enough good things about this mascara. I only wish I bought 2 more as backups because I have no idea where to get this in Toronto 2. Isehan Kiss Me Heroine Make Long and Curl Mascara There are a few this brand makes: I chose the one with the pink packaging. The purple packaging one is volume and curl, which for some reason isn't talked about a lot. This mascara is also an Asian favourite and raved about over there so I had to pick it up. It was under $20 CAD and is amazing! Holds my curl all day and adds a lot of length. Not as much volume as the Fairy Drops one but it still makes my lashes look great. Definitely worth the buy. You can get it at some places in a combo with their equally famous liquid eyeliner. 3. Majolica Majorca Lash King This one is like a drugstore mascara, I picked it up when it on sale at Watson's (an Asian drugstore) in Thailand for around $15 CAD. This is also a waterproof formula (they all are) and works pretty well. However, it does smudge after a few hours whereas the other mascaras do not. It holds a curl and makes your lashes look pretty good still, but has more clumping. Not my favourite one out of these 4, and to be honest with my other discoveries I could have done without it. 4. Lancome Virtuose Divine Lasting Cuves & Length This is the only one out of the 4 that isn't waterproof. I couldn't find it at Sephora or Shoppers so I got it at the airport duty free for about $30 CAD. This is very comparable to my Shu Uemura petal lash in terms of curling and how natural it looks. It did nothing for volumizing my lashes, and is only good for a natural day. Despite it not being waterproof, it doesn't smudge much at all and lasts throughout the day. But again, with the first 2 being so great, I could have done without this, too. I hope these reviews helped you guys pick an Asian mascara! Please comment if you have any others I didn't try out and what you think. Let's end the fight for Asian lashes!!
HI everyone, I've come to the realization that I look best with cooler toned nude lips but I can't seem to find anything that doesn't come off as orange or too pink on my lips. I'm pretty fair skinned with brown eyes and blonde hair. I usually like using lip liners more than lipsticks but will settle for something that hits the mark. Thanks!
I have a normal skin type and I'm pretty pale with a cool skin tone. I have problems with my foundations staying on even when I bake and use finishing spray. I usually go for drugstore foundations, and I feel like I've tried every drugstore foundation. Any good foundations I could try?
Hey there! I am looking for a VERY long lasting foundation that provides light-to medium coverage. Everything I've seen on youtube that is tried and tested long lasting has been heavy stuff like estee lauder double wear. I have combination/oily sensitive and easily clogged pores. I've tried MUFE ultra hd foundation, which only lasts maybe 4 hours, and then gets incredibly oily. I have light/medium olive skin. Please help =D
