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 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?
When Is the Sephora Favorites " Give Me Some Lip" Coming to stores? I would love to buy it but I dont want to pay for the shipping. And has anyone tried the SmashBox Pout Lip Color? I dont know what other makeup to wear with it?! http://www.sephora.com/give-me-some-lip-P388033?sk uId=1634898
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.
Wouldnt it be great to have your own recipe box of great looks from eye pallets just like a cooking recipe box? When you want a certain look,bam! Pull the recipe!!! Share your best look, and name the colors/pallets by name! Come on girls, share your best!!
Hello! I have a question I am sure is asked a lot. I am having trouble finding a foundation, well kind of. I was matched in store for MUFE Mat Velvet+ in No. 20 Ivory. I do really like this foundation but since its summer I went back in to find something a bit lighter looking and a more natural finish. (I have Combo Skin that gets oily through the day on the forehead). I was matched with the tool they have now and was told I was 2Y04. Well now I am really lost, how do I know what color I am and how do I go about finding a shade for me with out having to go and try them all on and not get pushed into one I don't really like. When I go to find my color matches through the foundation I already have it comes up with 1R03 and a totally different set of colors. Now I have also gotten my hands on MUFE HD in 115 Ivory and it also looks good on me. So If you can help me out I would much appreciate it.
Hello makeup lovers! I'm looking for a new blush, but I have some requirements: 1) must come with a brush, for touchups on the go 2) powder, since I use powder foundation 3) nice natural tone, prefer pink or peach, I have fair skin (I wear MUFE Mat Duo in shade 200, can't remember what I am in MAC, maybe NC20?) I recently tried Clinique - while changing nothing else in my routine - and after 2 days had two large blemishes. I tend to be sensitive/break out on my upper cheeks just below the orbital bone (redness, small blemishes, clogged pores). I'm very careful about washing my brushes and with my skincare routine, so going to chalk this up to either blush (or maybe my Nars undereye concealer?). Here's what I'm considering - what do you recommend? Any other brands? Lancome Blush Subtil (regular or shimmer) Shiseido Luminzing Satin Face Color Givenchy Le Prisme Blush ($30 is usually my limit, but willing to try this) Thanks in advance!
I normally don't have a problem with most makeup products. My skin is okay with Makeup forever, Bobbi brown, Hourglass, Guerlain, and Giorgio Armani most of the times. but when it comes to MAC items, I break out almost instantly and it takes more than 2 weeks to fully recover. it just makes my skin to warm up, cause black heads, and break out. I checked the ingredients and they don't really have anything that might cause breakouts. (I used prep and prime natural radiance and the mineralize moisture foundation) if anything, MUFE has more of ingredients that normally break me out like parabens.. does this happen to anyone else? I was going to purchase their pro longwear concealer but really don't know if I should..
Hi, I received a birthday gift Item number 1569847 , I added it to my shopping bag as i was ordering something else. I am curious to know what's in it and wanted to know the shades.. Do I have the option to choose the shade of lipstick I wish ?
Hi everyone, I was wondering what you would recommend for a SUPER shiny, glossy lip gloss that makes your lips look wet, juicy, reflective and maybe even give a fuller effect to lips... ? I prefer non-sticky glosses and maybe not too much glitter in it. I would like to use it over lipstick so color pay off isn't too much of a deal to me. plumping glosses are okay with me too I have tried mac dazzle glass and they were shiny but tooooo sticky and gloppy and the ingredients in it are not the best :/ I have the buxom glosses, which are my favorite as of now because they have a tingle and are quite glossy but still not as shiny as i want. nars was nicely formulated but not glossy I was thinking about dior glosses , lancome juicy tubes, or the new soap & glory xxl pillow plump that is exclusive for vib's right now. What are your thoughts ? Any help is appreciated thank you all so much! <3
As soon as the Makeup Geek store restock their blushes, I'm placing an order. I am not familiar with their eyeshadow, which ones do you love/hate? What do you use it for (crease, highlight, blending, etc.)?
I want to get into contouring and I have light skin with pink undertones. I've heard good things about Anastasia's Contour Kit and Smashbox's as well but I'm at a loss here. What are your recommendations? Am I better off buying a highlighter and bronzer (I don't want orange!) or going for a kit. Do the kits work well for light skin? From reviews I've read I think kits tend to lean more towards medium complexions? Let me know what you recommend as far as products go. I prefer matte powders.Thanks!
I tried many foundations (acc to me) from drugstore to high end, but any foundation didn't match me i tried sephora color IQ test thrice, it suggested me stilla foundation, i bought it hoping it would suit, but it made me look dark at least one to two shades dark being asian, never want to look dark, when i remove foundation half side, i can clearly see dark and light shades of my face recently tried Dior foundation also, same problem. I have combi- dry skin, with very oily t-zone and very dry cheeks, i am 26. Please suggest me good foundation which has many shades, that i can find one which suits my color perfectly, like second skin.
Hey everyone, I need a good concealer to cover up my hyperpigmentation/dark spots and I heard this one was full coverage. I just wanted to see if people on here thought it would be a good concealer for my problem areas?
Has anyone gotten the Smashbox Master Class III Palette? I've been eyeing this one up, but I have to wait a few months to get it since I've already spent over my budget for the time-being! ;-) I found some closeup photos of it and swatches of it online via cosmeticblur blog, and all the colors look so absolutely amazing! Does anyone know if this is in the permanent line or is it limited edition? If it's limited edition will it still be here in a few months? I just can't stop looking at all the colors and really don't want to miss out on this one! *drool*
I really like the Rose color in the lorac pro palette 2. It's probably the only color I would actually purchase. Is there a single eyeshadow out there that is similar? Open to both mid-end to drugstore. I was looking at UD's scratch, described as a rose gold shimmer.
So, I've been around these boards for a while but I hardly ever see anyone mention Elizabeth Arden. I was never crazy about any of the perfumes, but has anybody been to a Liz Arden counter lately or looked at the site? There are some really beautiful lipsticks and eyeshadows. My friend just purchased the bronzer and it is gorgeous. Also, the Ceramide line of skincare has been a favorite for a long time. I know many people think of the line as for "older" women, but I was just wondering people's thoughts?
Eff! I have a feeling the $50 Louboutin red nail polish will end up at my house. I don't hoard cheapie polishes so it's okay to splurge on a luxury beauty product, right? Sephora will be getting it around August 6th if I remember correctly. http://www.sephora.com/product/productDetail.jsp?p roductId=P388556&om_mmc=oth-tum-20140723-Louboutin
Lately I've been reading articles about all of these scary ingredients in my cosmetics. Things like heavy metals and parabens. Is this something to be worried about? Where can I find unbiased/objective information about this issue? Thanks very much!
I have a basic 9-5 office job, and lately, I've been over-doing it with the makeup! 1) because I have a lot of new goodies and 2) because it's fun! I was wondering what a good neutral/natural would look like. Show me some looks or what you guys wear during the week! Thanks :-)
