Has anyone come across make-up removing wipes that don't have a smell to them? I've tried nearly every Neutrogena wipe out there (as well as Olay, etc.) and all of them seem to have perfumes in them. It's not a huge problem for me as my skin doesn't break out because of this, but I just personally would prefer to not have my skin smell like pink buttfruit every time I try and clean my face. Any recommendations?
I entered a TooFaced contest on Twitter and actually won! It's a Better Than Sex mascara, nothing crazy but I am so excited to have won anything, and I've been eyeing this mascara. Do you enter giveaways or have ever won something exciting? The picture I used that "won" is my profile picture, me holding Glamour to Go II
Hi all! Sorry I haven't been around lately. Life got in the way. Anyway. Summer is coming up, and the inevitable wearing of fewer clothing items, which means chest will be showing. My problem is this: My face is pink, my neck is a darker yellow, and my chest matches my face (pinker and lighter). I've heard that you'd want to match summer foundation to your chest, so there isn't an obvious color difference. Thing is, there's a color difference even if my foundation matches my chest. My neck won't cooperate at all, so I have a foundation line at my jaw. tl;dr If a foundation matches my face and chest, it won't match my neck. I'm not sure what to do in this situation, so any advice would be appreciated.
There was someone who was going to do a foils/small sample TSB. I do not believe that person is still going to do it. If they are, I apologize and will not do one. I have been in two boxes and loved it but I have never started one. If anyone is still interested, I am willing to try to start one. We can use the same rules from the other TSB. Please let me know if anyone is interested. Also we need to decide if we want to do this with a small flat rate box (I believe shipping is around $6.00) or a medium flat rate box (I believe shipping is around 13.00). If you are going to participate, please be prepared for the shipping costs! This box is open for US shipping only. Shipping becomes more expensive for Canada. Once we decide if we want to do a small or medium box I will post pics of what I will start the box out with. If at that time someone decides they don't like what I am starting the box out with just let me know. I want this to be fun for all. Once I get the box back I will go through it & give the leftover items to the local youth group who works with the homeless shelters in Fredericksburg VA.

I have severe acne and scarring, which leaves almost "craters'' when I put on foundation. I've always used BareMinerals "Fairly Light" in Matte but I found that it doesn't provide the full coverage I need and comes off very easily. I'm looking for a good foundation that provides full coverage. Regardless of price, what would be the best foundation for severe acne, scarring, oil and redness? I've tried tarte's new clay foundation and liked its coverage but the color isn't my favorite and leaves my skin looking a bit oily. Recommendations? Thanks!
First off, I have NEVER used foundation in my life. And I have 6 different types from different brands in my loves list. I NEED some help at finding out which is the best for starters. The brands and types are: BUXOM Show Some Skin Foundation, BENEFIT Hello Flawless Foundation, MUFE HD Invisible Foundation, UD NAKED Foundation, KVD Lock-it Foundation, and BOBBI BROWN Stick Foundation. I already have the correct colors for each one. WHICH ONE IS THE BEST FOR BEGINNER FOUNDATION USERS?
Its on the site now, The design of the item is awesome. Seeing that its a magnetic closure is awesome. Btw the description said this is the 30th anniversary item for Guerlain.... And resisting this temptation is the worst.
I've seen women who can wear a full face of make up while working out - foundation, eyeliner, everything! I wouldn't wear any myself, because I frankly sweat like a pig and looking pretty/decent/presentable/human is probably the last thing on my mind, but I do marvel the ladies who can look so put together even when they're running or doing reps. I'm really curious how their makeup stays put. I can barely get my eyeliner to stay even when I'm not exercising and not end up with raccoon eyes! :/ (I'm a totally new makeup noob, btw....) Any workout goddesses want to share their secrets?
I've used UD naked foundation for over a year now, but I feel it is very hard to take off. I have to wipe my face off before my shower, then I wash my face in the shower and wipe my face off again. I feel like it will lever come off! Is there any short cuts?
so after swatting urban decay's newest pen liner i was super excited!! The felt tip is perfect and the liner is SUPER black. after having it for about days & using it maybe 3 times......THE LINER DRIED OUT! I could not believe this!! It was perfect while it lasted =/ better than my HG Stila pen liner. Im so upset by it. i did take it back. It gave the perfect wing liner too =(
I've been such a slave to Sephora & Ulta that I no longer own any drug store makeup. I'm on a tight budget right now so therefore I must downgrade on a few items. What are you favorite drug store or department store makeups? Eyeliners/Mascaras/Gloss/Eyeshadow...anything...Th anks!
So I recently purchased Urban Decays Electric palette. The colors are so gorgeous and oh so pigmented! I've been playing a lot with it and end up looking pretty comical at times with some of the rainbow looks I've come up with. I can't seem to accept wearing less than four shades at a time! Lol! Has anyone got any pictures of multiple color looks that aren't too over the top? Or do I have to accept using two or three shades?
Okay, so I changed my mind! I need an Hourglass blush... I am only allowing myself to purchase one however, and I can't make up my mind! I've narrowed it down to two colors... Diffused Heat and Radiant Magenta. I originally had my heart set on Diffused Heat, but then I saw swatches of Radiant Magnta -- and it isn't as in-your-face bright pink as I thought! And now I'm wondering if Diffused Heat would turn orangey on my warm skintone. I have light-medium skin with yellow undertones (my current foundation of choice is 2Y06 in Sephora's Color IQ). Which of these two shades would be more suitable for my skintone? Update: I just placed an order with Space.NK for Radient Magenta If I like it, I'll probably end up getting Diffused Heat as well, eventually! Thanks to everyone who provided me with their opinion... hearts for all of you!
Are any of you clean freaks? I absolutely hate it when my products get dirty. I hate when I have to pour foundation out and it gets around the mouth of the bottle and I can't clean every last bit of it and it just ends up dirtying the entire inside of the cap. I also hate getting concealer around the opening and dirty mirrors from powder fallout.
I just received an email from Hourglass that their Ambient Lighting Palette (with incandescent light) is back. Does anyone know if this means it's a permanent part of their collection, or is it LE yet again? What do you think? I have to say I'm disappointed it's not a blush trio or an ambient bronzing trio but this is still amazing because it's three shades of ambient lighting powder that I don't own. EDIT: refinery29 confirms that this palette is a permanent part of the Hourglass cosmetics line! Still awaiting confirmation from Hourglass!
New HSN customers can get the Too Faced Chocolate Bar Palette w/ a full-sized Shadow Insurance Primer for $29 with coupon code 20NEWSPRING (and free shipping!). Just bought mine (although I really only wanted the palette)...it might be worth it to have a friend sign up and order it on your behalf since it's a smokin' deal. That's almost 30% off. (Shout out to the Nouveau Cheap blog for posting this!)
So after chic week it seems my lip stick and lip gloss collection has grown tremendously. There is no way I can possibly add a matching lip liner for each color I have. I was looking at the clear universal lip liners and I see Sephora has one $10 and MUFE has one for $19. Im open to all suggestions even a good basic nude or light pink liner that would go with just about any lip color. I mostly wear nude, light pink, mauves, wine colors. Not too much corals or reds yet.
I have been using Clinique's Brush on Cream Liner and I love it, it is so easy to use, but sometimes it can be hit or miss on the staying power. What do you guys recommend for one that is long wearing and easy to use?
My name is Bombshell and I continue to be an eyeshadow addict enthusiast !! However, five weeks ago I began a quest to actually start using my mountains and mountains of palettes and shadows. Along with some awesome ladies who have joined in I have committed to using the same palette 5 days in a row and posting the results at the end of five days. Those with single shadows are welcome to join in as well! If you are interested in the original rules & lists posted they can be found in off topic, (take the challenge: palette parade). the gist of it is make a list, plan to show all your shadows love for extended period of time (5days), if you hate it first day move on. I am also planning to add weeks of singles by brand (Stila week, UD week, Nars week). I think instead of posting and editing lists it would be easier to report what we plan to use at the beginning of the week and the report the results at the end. We meet here at the end of the week to discuss what we wore for the week, how it worked for us and most importantly to share pictures and advice! Anyone can join as we all started at different times and have different numbers of palettes, and will finish at different times. I am looking at 38 (?) more weeks if I don't buy one more palette! Xoxo I look forward to more fun parading with all you girls!

I'm addicted to Beso by Urban Decay's Naked line! I didn't think I would like it but I got another during the sale even though my first isn't even half way gone. It keeps my lips soft and moisturized...which is a hard thing to do with my dry, chapped lips. I like it more than Fresh's line. I would love to hear what you all can't live without??!!
I have some questions about them and I read the reviews and they say they don't last long enough. Matte or Metallic? Do I have to use the primer? Which colors look best on pale skin? SHOULD I GET THESE?
