Hey ladies and gents! I'm always on the hunt for new brands to explore. I love supporting smaller companies that are female and/or minority owned. (the ones you share don't have to be) What are your favorite indie brands? Makeup, beauty, body care, clothes etc? I've loved oyin handmade for YEARS since they started in 1999/2000 or so. They have really grown and are now available in target stores in some areas. I also love bake shop butters (the owner is so sweet) she just got married so her shop is closed for now, but her body butters are WONDERFUL and smell so good. Toni Daley makes some AMAZING jewelry! I have some of her earrings and any time I wear them someone always asks me where I got them. Rachel Stewart also make some incredible pins and earrings.
Hey everyone! Deciding wether to splurge on Vice 3 (which I really do love all of the colors) or a custom Inglot palette. I'd heard Vice 3 wasn't as good but I'd really like to hear what everyone here thinks. Thanks
SO EXCITED!! 11/28/14, they are coming out with 50 LE miniature lipsticks, selling at $32 each. I need them all. A snippet from an article about them: " In the Lips & Boys lineup, there are 10 shade ranges, encompassing nude browns, violets and plums, metallics, reds and light pinks. The high-pigment shades are done in a base of soja seed extract, Brazilian murumuru butter and chamomile flower oil. Thirty-six offerings are new shades; 10 are from Velvet Suede, Ford’s current seasonal color story, and four are from previous seasons. Ford predicted bestsellers will include Tomas, a coral hue; Matthew, a coral pink; Flynn, a light pink; Giacomo, a deep rose, and Patrick, a muted coral pink. Each clutch-size lipstick will retail for $32. The lipsticks can also be packaged in sets of any three hues in the collection."
It seems like my YT home page has been inundated with reviews of these $5 Colourpop Super Shock cream eye shadows. They actually look quite lovely, but when I see everyone and their mother doing a review for something they were sent on YT, I tend to take those reviews with a heaping grain of salt. Has anyone actually tried these? The price is appealing at least.
I'm totally obsessed with lipstick right now. I'm normally a gloss kind of girl, but I bought the Bite lip set and UD Revolution in Rush now all I want to do is buy lipstick. What are your favorite wine colored lipsticks for fall? I have fair skin, with hazel eyes, and dark drown hair. Thanks for helping me feed my addiction
Has anyone tried products from StillGlamorus Cosmetics before? (I know glamorous isn't spelled correctly, btw, it's how the owner spells it.) I placed an order on May 2 from their web site for some pigments and haven't received a shipping confirmation or my order yet. I tried using their online Contact Us to ask for help and got no reply. I texted the number and the person responded pretty quickly asking for my name. Then I didn't hear anything else. I looked on the Facebook page for StillGlamorus today and noticed Kasey (the owner and YouTube beauty personality) had created an e-mail address to address concerns. But I'm really getting kinda pissed. I've paid money and have no product. And even if/when it does arrive, I have no idea what the quality will be like. Do any of you have experience with this brand?
I found the Mini Lipstick Charms trio available for pre-order today at Nordstrom. It's a bit more expensive than the price posted in blogs ($39 not $35). Oh well, it's still a good way to try something new. If you've seen the holiday palette elsewhere, please do share! Shades included at 0.03 oz. each: - **bleep** Perfect - Penelope Pink - So Marilyn

Which foundations have you guys liked for sensitive skin. Sephora discontinued my favorite Lorac foundation, it was heaven sent for my sensitive and acne prone skin. I am not using Hourglass foundation with a brush. In store they matched my skin but now the secretary at work said it looked too orange on my skin! How embarrassing...so the search begins anew, Any other suggestions? I need a good pale-with yellow undertone similar to Lorac with medium to full coverage for acne prone skin? And go! Thanks
It doesn't seem to matter makeup I wear... I ALWAYS show up stark white in flash photos - and yes, I've tried taking them at all different distances. I'm kinda fair as it is. Light skin with really warm undertones. I'm not sure if its a blush I'm using, a bronzer, a setting powder? I usually use Nars Sheer Glow or Giorgio Armani Luminous Silk Foundation, MAC MSF Natural, whichever bronzer I feel like using (either the Anastasia contour kit or NYC sunny bronzer), and a Nars blush. I also always use Urban Decay All Nighter Setting Spray. Any suggestions on what could be causing me to look like a corpse in photos/product recommendations to solve my issue?
I'm a little a lot peeved. Sephora carries 17 of the 20 NARS foundation shades online, they have all of the light shades, all of the medium shades, but are missing three of the darker shades: New Guina (which is actually a medium-dark shade), New Orleans, and Benares. Is there any particular reason Sephora doesn't carry these shades? I think what bothers me is the fact that I fall into that darker range that they're missing, and online they only have two of the four dark options even available to buy and in store (or at least every store near me - and that's eight stores) there's only one. So why Sephora, why? Finding foundation is already one heck of a task because I am on the darker side of the scale, and it doesn't help when all of a brands colors aren't made available and literally half the options for my skin tone, which weren't many to begin with, are gone. Can anyone shine some light on this?
Hello everyone! I'm looking for a dupe, drugstore or from Sephora, for Mac's Lipliner in Soar and Mac's Lipstick in Brave. Yes, I'm trying to get the Kylie Jenner look I wish my lips were that full! Here's a photo.
what are your thoughts? sometimes i feel like my foundation is too heavy (i know i could use a lighter coverage, but i always feel like those don't do anything) so i was wondering what people think about wearing concealer without foundation and if anyone has any tips?
So, I'm really liking rosy gold/brown right now and have been eyeing that palette ever since it came out. But everyone seemed to have issues with the quality, especially with Dust which I thought was gorgeous. I keep hoping that it was just an issue with the first palettes released, but I don't live close enough to a Sephora to play with a more recently created palette. Does anyone know if the quality increased?
I've always been curious about these and since they are having their F&F I am wondering if I should take the plunge and order some. Does anyone have any experience with these or own any? Please let me know. Thanks everybody =)
We swatched Urban Decay's Naked On The Run Palette to see how the colors looked on different skin tones. What do you think?
Do you have a swatch of this palette? Post a pic in the thread below!
Naked On The Run will be available online December 1st and in stores December 4th!
Hey all, I'm currently debating between the benefit cheeky sweet palette, the tarte pin-up girl palette, the NARS virtual definition palette, and the hourglass ambient lighting blush palette. I already have one of the hourglass blushes and I have hoola from the benefit palette. Does anyone have any thoughts about these palettes? What's good, what's crappy etc? I'd love to hear any thoughts about any of these.
I'm going to post a picture of me without makeup. Because hey, I love makeup, but I'm also working on embracing my face au naturel, too. None of this "I'm not wearing makeup" when you're wearing a tinted moisturizer, brown mascara, and have a slight flush to your cheeks and lips. I'm talking no makeup AT ALL (No, not even clear lip balm). This is me, about 10 minutes out of the shower. Anyone else brave enough?
They're now live on their website! How many of you are thinking of picking these up? I'm still not entirely sold on them. How about you ladies? The price point is pretty good. 1 for $14 4 for $40 8 for $70
Has anyone used eyeshadow shields? They seem to be great as stencils for cat eyes (it's so difficult to get them perfect). I was just wondering if it's worth the buy or if any of you lovely ladies have any DIY techniques that are similar to these eyeshadow shields.
