Hi, My nails have been peeling for a while now and I don't know why. I haven't used nail polish for about two weeks so I could give my nails a break from the chemicals in the nail polish. I also got a ultra shield base coat and just wore that, but they are still peeling. What should I do and is there anything I can do without buying anything? Thanks
Saw Temptalia's post a couple of days ago on the Givenchy Fall collection for this year, and it's all so beautiful -- from the packaging to the colors. I mean, look at the burgundy leather encasement for the Le Rouge lipsticks! However, the only one I will probably get is the Blush Memoire De Forme Pop Up Jelly Blush in Rose Extravagant -- am I crazy to want to drop $37 on a blush?! :-\ Yikes... However, I feel that between the color and the packaging, it's something that I can admire for a while...as long as it doesn't dry up at some point. From Make Up 4 All blog From Fashion Trend Seeker
I have pretty good, mature skin. Not too many blemishes or marks, and I'm quite fair with blue eyes. I am having trouble finding a good summer face makeup that will cover my little bit of redness, and stay on my face! With the humidity in New York everything is just melting off. Even powder isn't really working.....I've been trying a tinted sunscreen with Bare Minerals over it, but the coverage isn't very good...Any ideas??
I'm honestly always on a hunt for a better eyeliner. eyeliners that glide on smoother, that stay on longer, and is better value.. I have purchased and used the Bobbi brown's gel liner 2 times, but I'm not crazy about them. They stay on a bit better than Nars cream liners, but still isn't enough.. my undereye area gets very very messy after about 4 hours. I'm interested in the YSL gel liners, but like all other YSL products, the reviews are "too glowingly positive" For ex. their stick concealer and touche eclat foundation are nice, but they're not worth 5 star reviews. (at least in my opinion) Has anyone with eyes that are prone to smudging easily tried he YSL gel liner? (monolid reviewers would be even more helpful)
I currently have 11 of the 30 and will be purchasing 4 or 5 more, not interested in the pinks or white colors. Not many reviews on the new mostly swatches right now. Anyone using these new shadows, they are so pretty AND CHEAP!!!
The lightest Estee Lauder Double Wear Foundation is still too dark for me and I was wondering if there were any good dupes for this foundation and the wonderful formula it offers. I heard the Lancome Teint Idole Ultra 24hr was good, any thoughts?
So my UD Perversion Mascara and Primer came in the mail today, and so far, I really like it! While it doesn't quite compare to my HG YSL BabyDoll, it does give some nice volume (especially when layered over the primer) and lengthens my lashes quite a bit. Plus the packaging is gorgeous, all though not quite what I would call perverse lol. Anyone else tried it yet? Thoughts? Pictures?
So I see that a lot of folks are not liking this new eyeliner, mainly because the formula is so dry that it doesn't go on smoothly. I tried this little trick this morning and it improved things greatly. The trick is gentle heat. You could probably just give the pen a little blast with a hairdryer, but mine wasn't handy so this is what I did. Make sure lid is screwed on nice and tight Place pen tip side down in a mug of hot tap water for about a minute Prep the tip by wiping it clean with a tissue dipped in the hot water and cleaning off any old product Twist and do a couple of test swipes on the back of your hand Ready to go It improves performance quite a bit, as the indirect heat softens the formula just enough. The downside to it is that it can be a little wasteful, as the heat will push out more product than you probably want. But I figure it's not as wasteful as having a $25 eyeliner sitting there that's impossible to use AMIRITE?
Okay... not to complain but I was trying on one of my KVD lippies and for some reason for which I don't know, I rolled up the whole lipstick tube and there wasn't much product in there. There's probably about less than an inch of actual lipstick. I got curious and looked at the Marc Jacob's lippie and while there's not a lot in there either, it's more than Kat's lipstick. I'm not complaining about the quality of the lipstick... it's great I just wish that for $21, they could have put more than 3/4's of an inch of lipstick in there. I mean her Monarch palette size is huge... why can't the lipsticks be too? I just looked and the Studded Kiss has .10 oz., her original line has .11 and Marc Jacob has .12
I'm currently looking for the best waterproof pencil eyeliner for tightlining my upper and lower waterline--I'd like to stay within about a $22 budget. (I do not want to use liquid eyeliners, or eyeliners in a pot.) My face perspires easily, especially during the summer, so even waterproof eyeliners bleed and smudge underneath my eyes--even when I use Benefit Stay Don't Stray primer below my eyes. I have tried Urban Decay's 24/7 waterproof eyeliner and Sephora's waterproof eyeliner, and both bled terribly. It does not look professional, and I hate having to constantly wipe off the smudges in the restroom--which is probably not great for the delicate under-eye area. I am thinking about trying MUFE's Aqua Eyes, or possibly Tarte SmolderEYES. Any other suggestions for around $22 or so? **There was a best waterproof eyeliner pencil question from 2010, so I thought I would start a newer discussion
Just found out Bite Beauty Release a new Bite Beauty Agave Lip Mask Champaign !!! It suppose to have Rose gold pearl to it. Now I am soooo intrigued by it, can not wait to see it! What are your thoughts?
My skin is very oily and I am trying to find a foundation that works really well for my skin and I recently purchased BECCA foundation from Sephora but now I just want to find a drugstore makeup for now and I don't know what to get. Any recommendations?
Hi BT Buddies!! Here is my dilemma--I have used Jane Iredales pressed and loose minerals, I like both, but the pressed just doesnt give me enough covereage. I want a pressed foundation that gives medium/buildable coverage. I haven't tried BM Ready yet, but I did use the loose in Fairly Light. I recently tried the IT Cosmetics one and like it but it was too yellow so back it went. I need a fair with COOL undertones--no yellow. I have combination skin, tends to get oily T zone... I welcome any suggestions! Thanks in advance!
I recently bought the HOURGLASS Arch Brow Sculpting Pencil, because of the great reviews. I was going through a Brow Wiz way too quickly. When I found out the Hourglass pencil is 0.014oz, for $32 ($37CAD), compared to 0.003oz $21($27) for the Brow Wiz, I was sold. If you compare the 2, the brow wiz is so much more expensive! You would pay $98 ($126 CAD) for the same amount of product! I even compared it with drugstore products and it's still a better value. So, my question is, do you have any other go-to products that you think have such a great value?
It's not letting me post pictures-whyyyy???? Anyway, there is a new eyeshadow palette and the Rose Gold SSP in Liquid Form out! Yay! I really want to compare swatches between the pressed and liquid. The palette is all matte and really pretty, but the last three colors look pretty similar. There's info. and pictures on Temptalia if you want to go see, but the pictures are not uploading...
I used to use LORAC PERFECTLY LIT OIL-FREE LUMINIZING POWDER in Spotlight - it's sold out everywhere - and I've heard rumors it is being discontinued. I realize Sephora no longer carries the line and Kohls now does, but again, I can't find my fav luminizer anywhere. Ugh!!!! I need some Sephora help! Pretty please! I have a medium colored skin tone (yellow undertones) so gold tones tend to look more natural than pink ones - need recommendations on what other options to try to replace my old fav product. I have tried a bunch of things thus far and haven't had a lot of luck. I don't want anything too glittery.... help... And thanks in advance!
Calling all palette addicts! Considering a LOT of us all have the same ones, let's swap some of our best "recipes"! I do with some non BT friends and we have a blast.

I have rosacea and my dermatologist recommended using a green based foundation to calm down the redness. I currently use Bare Minerals is this a green based foundation? What do you recommend? I like using a powder.
