Usually, I can make a palette work for me, but the Smashbox Heatwave Palette is just not doing the trick for me. The colors are pretty, but they go on really light. Plus the fallout is ridiculous. I bought it a long time ago, so I'm gonna have to MsGyver this bad boy and use some colors with other palettes I have to make it work. I guess I can try it wet, too. I haven't done that yet. What eyeshadow palette to you regret purchasing? http://www.sephora.com/product/productDetail.jsp?k eyword=SMASHBOX%20Heat%20Wave%20Eye%20Shadow%20Pal ...
So I just spent the afternoon filming a dupe video for my channel and I wanted to get your opinion. I shot the video in natural lighting plus an overhead warm light and the other video with umbrella lights (both videos are of the same thing). The umbrella lighting is a little stark but the other lighting is a bit warm (and sometimes the warm light will hit my face in areas). Which lighting do you think looks better? Please let me know what you think Thanks guys!!!
Lovely ladies of BT, I have a dilemma. 'm using the Sephora brand eye makeup remover, and it does an okay job but not great. And my eyes are pretty sensitive. Anyone have something that works well and is gentle? Even a home remedy would work.
So I still haven't spent the $50 to get $20 off. Ive bought smaller items but for some reason I haven't been able to find the right item for this deal. I think it's comical because I don't seem to have a problem with spending money at sephora… I just want to feel like Im getting a deal on a really good item. (I don't want to waste it). Anyone else out there still have their $20 off $50?
So, what is everyone's favorite polish remover? I'm looking for suggestions because my nails have been peeling like crazy, and I'm guessing my polish remover has something to do with it. It's a never ending cycle because my polish chips quickly because of the peeling, and then it gets dried out even more from the remover. Help!
I was looking at these for a long time, but for some reasons never really got into them and didn't pull the trigger... I have a few questions for you all about them! 1. Do they ever dry out your lips? 2. How long do they last? thanks in advanced :*
Hi all, I'm looking for long wear lipsticks for olive toned skin. Specifically, reds. I'm drawn to deeper reds, so nothing fire engine-y. More purple-reds, berry reds, etc. I'm open to any shades that work well as I don't usually wear very pigmented lipstick. Any advice for a newbie?
My polish collection has gotten a bit out of hand so now I've ordered some of the nail wheels so I can swatch them all to remember what each one looks like. My question is do I also put a base coat and top coat on the wheel like I would on my nails?
hello! i wanted to try some products sold in sephora for my extremely chapped lips....i've tried burt's bees chapstick, the brand chapstick, maybelline my baby lips, etc. nothing is working very well for me. i prefer a tube-like product, so i don't have to dip my fingers in the actual product, but please PLEASE help! thanks so much! happy holidays! xo
So I have a gift card burning a hole in my wallet and I'm in the mood to use it. Got any suggestions on what to buy? I really don't want a gift set but would prefer 1 or 2 really good and special products. Other than that, I'm up for anything!
Hey everyone, I recently purchased the NARS bronzer/blush duo in Orgasm/Laguna. I absolutely loveeee the colors! But I can't pick up any of the bronzer with my brush! I have no problem with the blush, I use my angled blush brush from bare minerals. However, with the bronzer side, i tried using my small powder brush from sephora collection (the one that was part of the black friday deals, sparkly pink handle, it was part of a three pack) and it barely picked up any product. Then I decided to try using my bare minerals flawless application face brush (I didn't think it would work, but I figured I'd try because I didn't have another brush to use). Can anyone suggest a brush I should be using? If anyone uses the Nars bronzer, what do you use? Thank you!!!
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!
What is your favorite nail shape preferred length? What are you rocking right now? (include your nail color as well ) I like both square and stiletto but I prefer stilettos. I have really skinny bony fingers and stilettos make them look really feminine. I prefer my nails to be long. I am a ex-biter. I broke my 12 year habit last year and every since then I've hated short nails on me. I'm currently growing out my nails and they are squares. I want to get a little bit more length before I stiletto them. Right now they are a little bit past my fingertips and the nail polish I have on is Orly Pink Chocolate
I'm here in search of inspiration!! What are all of you beautiful people doing for the holidays? I know many of you love to play and experiment with makeup, and I seem to be in a rut. I love winged liner and a red lip, sometimes with a smokey eye, I can't help it. Maybe I don't want to help it Anyways, are you--perhaps more creative--BTers planning on rocking? (Or what did you rock already if you already celebrated?) Here's the look I was talking about on me.
Has anyone already tried the Chocolate bar? I see it is already on the website but not in stock. Also no reviews just yet. Just wanted to know if anyone has tried or maybe wants to try it? How do Too Faced shadows compare to the other neutral pallets out there (i.e Naked 1, 2, or 3, Lorac pro, etc) I see that it is around the same price range as all the others. So what do you think?? http://www.sephora.com/the-chocolate-bar-eye-palet te-P384402?skuId=1578012
Hello As a nail polish lover, im sure other BTers on here also love nail polish as much as I do. I know it might be hard to choose one out of tons that we own, but we always have a favorite in our hearts right? I am REALLY curious about everybody favorite nail polish brand / color. Don't be afraid to post a photo! --------------------------------- For me, all time favorite nail polish would be Chanel Peridot. its a duo-chrome golden - emerald color! I do not own it, but I own the perfect dupe to it! OPI - Just spotted the lizard, its a complete perfect dupe! Here a picture to prove it. Same color right? Its the best dupe ever and I love it! Nail polish is such a beautiful invention! Right?
I really love Dior Brow styler- for the natural look it gives my sparse brows. But at $38 I have to go through at least 4 a year. Any alternative suggestions that will do the trick for my overplucked medium/light brunette brows? Have tried powders, they look too cake-y. Need a thin pencil/gel combo. Please help!
I've been using Neutrogena make-up wipes and then I scrub my face with a cleanser. However, on days that I wear heavier make up I feel like I'm not getting it all off! It feels like the wipes remove some of it but then spread it around. Any suggestions?
I am tired of going to the bathroom during the day to find black smudge marks under my eyes from my mascara. I have tried and love Lancome's Hypnose and Guerlain, but they are both leaving those darn smudge marks. Can anyone please recommend a good mascara that gives more of a dramatic eye look (read dark, curling, volumizing, etc.) look without the smudging? Really appreciate any recommendations.
I was looking at holding out until the Naked 3 is restocked, but I feel like it may not be the best for my cool toned skin. On the other hand, I've read that the rose colors usually work well on very fair skin. I'm NW15 in MAC, if that helps!
I saw this going around on Youtube and I wanted to see what you ladies have to say and what you decide. I don't have all of these palettes, I stated the ones that i thought fit the category best. Some I do have though! Here are the questions! 1.) Best Packaging 2.) Best Color Payoff 3.) Most Versatile 4.) Best for Travel 5.) Biggest Regret 6.) Best Color Names 7.) Least Used 8.) Most Used, Most Loved, Desert Island 1.) Best Packaging I have to give this one to Marc Jacobs. Their packaging is the beautifulest I have seen! I do not own it… YET! lol but from what i have seen, it is so sleek and beautiful!!! 2.) Best Color Payoff UD Naked i believe has one of the best color payoff out of most palettes! 3.) Most Versatile I think the Disney's Ariel Palette is pretty versatile since it was a collection of colors and finishes! 4.) Best For Travel . I take the Naked Basics palette with me whenever I go on a trip. It is small, compact, and it has neutrals that go with everything and range from day to night. 5.) Biggest Regret My biggest regret was probably the UD… i don't even know the name of it. It is a small square palette and is purple on the outside and has a bunch of shimmery colors that i NEVER use! 6.) Best Color Names I have to give it to the upcoming Too faced Chocolate Bar ! it has such yummy names that make you just want to eat the palette!! lol 7.) Least Used That once again has to go to that UD palette. I have NEVER used it and I have had it for a while. 8.) Most Loved Has to go to my Lorac Pro Palette . It is my baby! I use it all the time and create any look with it! I am in love with this baby! <3 lol
Has anyone received theirs yet? I just took a peek at my glam room (though I always tell myself not to) and I am pretty pleased with my goodies! The Pop eyeshadow trio is so pretty, I hope I get the natural palette. We always get Be a Bombshell items, which I don't mind. I've never owned an "all over" stick so I'm excited to get it. Nail polish again, which is okay for me. I'm not a big nail person. And I own and love a lot of NYX lip products and Ardell lashes so I am very happy about those! What's in your bag and what do you think of your items? Is this month's bag worth the ten dollars for you?
My biggest struggle is finding a foundation, tinted moiturizer and bb cream in my shade/ undertone(yellow). I was hoping someone would help me find a tinted moisturizer or bb cream that has yellow undertones. A lot of the times, they oxidize, and make me look orange or red. I have oily skin and as a reference, I wear shade 153 in MUFE HD foundation. And that color IQ system is somewhat helpful but is very limiting. I am sure that those cant possibly be the only foundations I can wear. So PLEASE help me!!!
Oh my goodness.... this is the first waterproof mascara I have used in a long, long time, and it is absolutely impossible to get off!! Does anyone else use this? Do you know what I'm talking about? What do you ladies use? I usually use MAC Pro eye makeup remover, and it works awesome on stuff like Hourglass Film Noir et. all... but doesn't budge this stuff at all!
