Some days I just don't have time to blend out my liquid foundation correctly and next year when I go off to college I want to spend less time on my makeup so I was wondering what mineral foundation has good coverage and is pretty fast. I need to be able to cover the discoloration I have in my skin and my acne scars. It would also help if you could tell me what type of brush you recommend with the powder
So normally getting a palette with a misspelled label isn't a huge deal. I mean, it does tweak my Virgo need for order, and it does irk when it's from a high-end brand. This misprint of "Deep Night", though, skates a little too close to the racial slur line for comfort. Obviously it's not intentional, but I wonder how many of these slipped through quality control. I'm debating whether to exchange it, or just try adding the letters in myself with liquid paper or something.
I'm planning on wearing false eyelashes soon and I need to get a good eyeliner for it. What would you recommend? It would probably have to be black or dark brown of course. I'm honestly not sure if I should get liquid, crayon, gel or etc. What do you guys feel looks nicer? One issue that I've had before is m eyeliner not lasting on my waterline for the day so if it could also be long wearing that be would great. Thanks in advance!
I went to the contouring class at my local sephora. They recommended using the Bobbi brown stick foundation but I'm not sure which color to get. My color iq is 1y02. Also if anyone has another recommendation for cream contouring!
I opened my Naked 3 palette for the first time in a week and it smells really really bad like urine. It didn't smell at all when I first got it. My other Naked palettes didn't smell at all when I got them. Did anyone else's palette stink really bad?
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?
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?
I just got a pretty big Chanel haul and I'm organizing some of my goodies. I'm wondering what anyone does with those black velvet pouches that you get with Dior, Chanel, etc. Do you keep your products in them? Toss them? Use them for anything? I don't really want to keep my products covered in the vanity. I would if I took it on the go, but right now everything is staying at home. So I put the pouches lining one of my makeup drawers and put the product cases on top.
I have a really watery waterline everything disappears within in 30minutes or start smudging to the sides of my eyes, which turns into panda eyes. I found the perfect liquid liner for my lids (stila) but I haven't found the one for my water liner. I have tried makeup forever Aqua liner, Nars, Bobbi brown gel liner, tarte Amazonian clay liner, urban decay 24 hours glide pencil, sephora eye liner, Laura mercie cake liner, and Marc Jacobs gel crayon. None of them stayed on my waterline for very long. Only thing lasted was Nars long wear liner for 4 hours and then it would fade in the corners of my eyes or smudge out. I'm looking for anything that would last long on my waterline. I work 10 hours so I don't have a lot of time for touch ups.
I fell in love with nyx's She devil lip crayon, its a dark dark dark purpley burgandy. I would love to find a similar shade ing a higher quality formula. the nyx color only lasted maybe in hour and was horribly runny.
I want to create a MUFE 3-pan palette of matte shades that are in the taupe family. I want them to be grouped so that I have all the shades needed for lid/crease/highlight. I was thinking I want M620 Grey Brown as my darkest shade. What should my other two be? I was looking at M536 Milk Tea, M548 Pink Grey, and M558 Dark Taupe, but I am not sure what works together. I will be swatching in store (presumably at the Rouge event in November, since it will be a trip for me to get to one with all the MUFE shadows) but I wanted to get some expert input here as well! EDIT: Now that I'm finding swatches online, I think Milk Tea is too warm. I want cool tones, obviously. This is why I need help!!! http://www.sephora.com/artist-shadow-P387670?skuId =1623412
I've moved back into my house and there was of course stuff that was in storage for three years. Among my stuff was of course makeup. Well, in particular there was a lip balm (it's called a fat balm from Emily the Strange that I don't think they make anymore sadly), that I got a few years before it was in storage. It was in a makeup bag that was then of course put in a cardboard box and then put in storage. So on to my point: I'd really like to use it again (upfront, I haven't put it on again as I would like everyone's opinion on here as I totally trust you guys), but I don't know if it's still ok for me to put on. I smelled it, and it didn't have a funky smell nor did it look like it had mold growing on it or anything like that, and I don't think there's a time limit on when to use it. Part of me is telling me to throw it away, but the other part of me doesn't want to and to use it. I'm think I know what you guys will say, but I need to hear it anyway xD. Is this lip balm still safe to use? Do I have to just disinfect it, and if so how?
This line is amazing! My new love are their Matte Lipsticks. I think it's hard to find a matte lipstick that doesn't totally dry out your lips. But these don't. And they go on so smoothly, and the color is amazing. They are only $5.99, and seriously they are better than any of the higher end matte lippies.
I'm trying to find the perfect shade of Kat Von D foundation, there isn't a store near me. So.... I'm between a light and medium leaning more toward light, my veins are green so i am assuming i have warm undertones, but also have alot of redness on my cheeks. Right now i am the shade buff beige in the fit me foundation but its actually just a tiny tiny bit to dark but nothing drastic. Im usually always in the beige colors, but maybe just a tiny bit lighter now because of the fall and winter months. Please help!
Beauties, how Audacious have you gotten? I need to get some of these and am going to swatch tomorrow. If you have Audacious lippies, show us what colors you've picked up, and share what other colors you're still lusting after. Just from looking at swatch sheets last month, (on Temptalia I think) I saw about 15 I wanted How about you? Also, hat tip to jemly for inspiring this thread
i am looking for a very quick eyeshadow or pencil. I'm not a morning person at all. I'm a substitute teacher who has to get ready fast. But I've also just started wearing glasses all day, so I do want to pop my eyes a bit. Grew up in the 80s and have wistful memories of a one-swipe wider brush shadow... I do also like some of the UD 24/7 shadow pencil shades as an easy go to, but some also seem way too intense for an overall swipe. Any suggestions on a color or formula or easy look? Thanks!
Hello Everyone, I love lipsticks so much.... I bought so many in Full size... never had chance to use them for third or fourth time. I am try to save money to get the mini lipsticks. I love High end branded lipstick such as Chanel. Dior, YSL etc but they never come in small size.. so I need to change to another brands. I have two sets in mind... Bite and Too Faced. I had used Bite before so I love it too. I do not know about Too Faced melted ones yet. I remembered last year Bite beauty came with the set like that...I don't know what the different colors this year and last year. In two of these set, which set would you recommend for? Thank you so much I love the holiday set Bite Beauty BEST BITE REMIX Too Faced Melted Kisses

I am color matched for Laura Mercier Secret Camo #3. Does that correspond to the Undercover Pot #3? What are the differences between the two products? And does the Secret Camo come with a brush? Thanks!
There was a challenge a few weeks ago (I couldn't find it when I did a search ) to use a product that you had bought but never used and to use it for a week. I loved that challenge so much that I have been continuing to try different products that I bought. I was going through one of my many, many train cases trying to look for something new that I could use for the week. And I found it!!! Hourglass' Femme Rouge Velvet Creme lipstick! I had heard a lot of talk on BT about the Ambient Lighting Blush over the past few weeks and how it was offered to Rouge but I never really thought to look into the brand. Just a quick back story into how I bought the lipstick: I love the Daily Makeover website and there's a little game thingy called Virtual Makeover. You basically upload a photo of yourself and give yourself a virtual makeover. They have brands like Dior, Lancome, Illamasqua loaded into the selections of make up and you can pick a new hairstyle, foundation, blush ect on it. Well, I was playing around with the lipsticks and I was looking for a few new colors since I mainly stick to plums (I was looking for more of an Orchid color really...) and I've had so much success with color matches through it that I decided to see if there were any classic reds that I might like. So I selected the Hourglass lippie in Icon. It looked good so I bought it but it went the way of many lipsticks that I buy that are out of the plum range and went into my train case to die a short lived life. Fast forward to today, I was looking for something that I could use in the challenge and I was going through the lippies in the bottom of my train case. I tried on some of the Kat Von D Studded Kiss lippies and they made my lips so dried and chapped that I was just going to try something like eye shadow for the challenge while I reached for my Advanced Lip Therapy to sooth my lips and called it a day. But then I saw the Hourglass and opened it up. I was kind of curious why I bought a blue-red lippie when I'm warm toned (I usually stick with warm toned colors) so I decided to try it on. It was so amazing!!! It instantly hydrated my lips... I don't know if that's what it was supposed to do but I just fell i love. Like I said I never even really heard of Hourglass before until the posts about the new blush but now I'm looking into expanding my collection and I want to find out everything I can about it. I'm just totally shocked on how great it looks even though it's cooled toned. In total love!! So, is there any brand that you've bought by chance and kind of tossed aside an now realize that you're in love with?
Recently Tarte's Amazonian Clay 12hr Blush in Blushing Bride switched from a shimmery plum to a "plumy rose." I'm considering buying it but as I don't have a store with it in stock nearby, I was wondering if anyone has the new formulation that they could swatch or a link to a swatch online? How do you feel about the new color formulation?
Good afternoon and TGIF! I was wondering if anyone can offer up a shade similar to the one I mentioned in my question (Make Up Forever's lipstick in N9 Copper Pink), it was the lipstick in the Birthday Gift. It's the perfect MLBB for me but I don't like the scent of this lipstick so I am hoping to find either another brand of lipstick or even lipgloss, stain, etc that is the same hue. I am open to high end or drug store suggestions. Thanks in advance! Here is the link to the swatch of the product I am searching for a dupe of: http://www.sephora.com/rouge-artist-natural-P30770 0?skuId=1396795
I know this is probably a long shot since there are no saks/nordstrom etc in the area, but I'll be in the Buffalo/Williamsville area this afternoon and was wondering if anyone knew of anywhere that sold the Christian Louboutin nail color? I've picked up one in Toronto but they're always sold out and was hoping to be able to get another today!
