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?
Well I'm not really stuck but I'm stuck on brown eye shadows. I love a smokey eye. So far I have the ladybird palette, naked 2palette (for some reason I don't find my self reaching for it .. Sadly. A waste) a smashbox trio (dark brown light brown and a cream white) and a Mac palette with 3 blendible light browns (Slowly building my palette) I love browns I guess. I'm not too into color and chunks of glitter but I do go to my naked 2 for gold colors. The black is so hard for me to blend in my naked 2 anyone else have this problem? However I would like a little color in my palette I don't like silver/grays though. I have olive skin, black ombré hair, and Dark Brown eyes. Any eyeshadow suggestions? As well as palettes? Silky eye shadows ? I've had my eye on the Too Faced Chocolate Bar & Anastasia's Cat Walk any one suggest Cat Walk? Thank you
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 ...
Hello there! I'm taking the leap and splurging on some Hakuhodo brushes for those who are familiar with them (Japanese brush manufacturer, very high quality and can be quite expensive!) If you're anywhere near well-versed in brushes, I'm looking at the S111 and the G5519BkSL, both blue squirrel brushes. I am choosing between a thicker blush brush and a thinner one. I am drawn to the thinner one because I'm looking for a lighter, softer application, but I'm also drawn to the luxury of a thicker, more densely-packed brush. (Of course, that one is more expensive.) As always, thank you so much in advance for your help and advice!!
I mainly used pressed eyeshadows, and have not had much luck with the brushes I have tried (wish I had done more research on the Real Techniques eye brushes before I bought them instead of blindly expecting them to fare as well as their regular brushes do) so I'm turning to you lovely ladies for guidance: are there affordable (I'm talking like under $10/15 per brush or something) eyeshadow brushes out there that can actually pick up product from the pan and deposit it onto eyelids without losing half the product in the bristles themselves? Or blending brushes that actually blend instead of wiping all the eyeshadow away? If you don't have one under that budget but still would like to share your love for some more expensive eyeshadow brushes, feel free to do so!
Hi! I also this Urban Decay om Naked 2 from Sephora. However upon opening it at home, I noticed that the names of the palettes were not centered on the pans. I looked at reviews of fake Urban Decay 2 and this was always mentioned. Do you guys think this is fake or just a defect in manufacturing?
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
Hey guys! So i'm 13 years old, about 5'4 and 124 pounds. I just kinda want to lose a few pounds cuz y'all probs know how hard it is to be even the slightest bit "bigger" in this society. I'm not like fat or anything but losing the weight wouldnt hurt. My boyfriends pretty supportive of it. I'm generally active... I do cross country therefore I run everyday. Please answer soon i'd really appreciate it. xoxo, Jessi
Hey ladies, I have been wanting to try a new foundation and am having a really hard time deciding. I have oily/combo skin. It's really kind of unpredictable, but my T-zone can become quite an oily, shiny mess some days. I have been wanting to try the Hourglass Immaculate Liquid Powder Foundation for some time, but then I have been hearing really good things about the Tarte Amazonian Clay 12 hour. Read the reviews, but they are kind of neck to neck. So if any of you have tried either one, I would love to hear your opinion! Thanks
Has anyone tried both of the polishes? My local Sephora has the MJ but not the DL. They both look like a perfect festive red. I do not wear red polish enough to justify two bottles. Any thoughts, suggestions, or swatches. Thanks for the help
I am going to sephora with my $20 off today, and want to get one of the Hourglass light powders. Which one do you think I should get? I can only get one, so I want your opinions! I already have dim light and love it! i am 115 in MUFE liquid foundation, so slight pink undertone and very pale!
Hey everyone! I've been wanting to try out false lashes for a while, but I wasn't sure on what brand to try because I've heard they can be pretty pricey, and I wasn't sure if they were right for me. I'm looking for lashes I can wear on a daily basis because the only eye makeup I wear to school is mascara and I just want something to make my eyes pop a little more. + any additional info about them would be helpful too. THANKS
Hi Everyone, I'm new to the forum but figured I'd start taking advantage of this great tool. I'm a freelance makeup artist and have been considering buying the MUFE Flash Color case. I've seen some reviews online about the product that were very mixed. Has anyone here purchased this product? What did you think of it? Does it have good staying power, is it blendable etc? I'm a MUA and would like to add something like this to my kit, but for $99 the reviews have made me hesitate. Thanks so much for your time. ~Nikki Mergency
I love Stila Beso for a red matte lip, but am worried about wearing it out because I know that if it flakes, it becomes very hard to fix. Does anyone have any pointers on how to deal with it if it flakes? I have heard that this liquid lipstick can not be touched up, that it can only be removed entirely and reapplied. Advice?
So after missing the Rihanna Holiday train (I really wanted Pleasure Bomb ) I was so excited about Naked 3 that I opted out of ordering online because I wanted to feel it in store. So on my lunch break I head to my local Sephora to buy it and get my birthday gift. I use my $20 off $50 and as I goto pay I notice two store credit cards from Sephora and try my luck with the values, glad I did. I only paid $8.50 for Naked 3. Makes up for the lipstick and is officially the cheapest birthday gift I ever got myself What did you ladies get with your $20 off $50?
I have super oily skin and lots of breakouts, and my skin is very sensitive and prone to redness. I have tried just about every mattifying primer and foundation and nothing really seems to work. I don't really like mattifying lotions because they tend to make me red and too dry around my blemishes. I like the MUFE Mat Velvet foundation and with the right primer I think it could be perfect. The other problem is that no matter how much I exfoliate or moisturize before applying my makeup, my blemishes always get dry and crusty looking after my makeup has been on a few hours or so. So my makeup wears off/slides around everywhere else on my face and gets patchy and crusty around my zits. I am so frustrated because I can't find anyone else talking about this issue. It seems like people who are super oily don't have the flaky blemishes issue, and people with acne aren't as oily as I am. Please help! What would you recommend?
All images courtesy of Musings of a Muse Still a little ways away, for this collection, but I'm drooling over it. That shadow palette looks gorg, same with the blushes, and so many pretty shades of the La Creme lipsticks! (didn't post pictures with all the shades)
I have found that I am now allergic to purple eyeliner and possibly shadow because of the dye used I believe. I was wondering if anyone else has the same problem and found a brand that does not make them re-act like you have pink eye. My eyes are hazel and purple makes em pop so nice, I am desperate to find a brand that doesnt use the common red dye that is causing this reaction! Any info would be great!
Hi All, I've always wanted to try my hand at contouring but I haven't yet because I don't believe I have the right products or techniques to do it well. I've looked at guides before but I can't really envision it just by reading about it, and in videos everyone seems to do it a bit differently so I'm not sure what to try. Any advice on techniques (in the form of video, or photo tutorials would be really be appreciated) or products that worked for you would be great!!!
Hello all! I was just wondering what everyone's favorite part of their morning beauty routine is just for fun!! Whether it's playing around with all your different eyeshadow colors, putting on your blush for some rosy cheeks, swiping on your favorite lipstick, making your hair look flawless, or even that last spray of perfume. Personally, I just love picking out what lipstick/lipgloss combo I'm going to finish off my look with. I am a lipstick girl all the way!! What's your favorite??
