Pink Beauty Blender is smaller than Purple Beauty Blender
I was wondered about this when I went to JC Penny to get my friend a make over. I was waited for her,  I saw they have pink and purple beauty blender on the makeup station. While I was holing it, I realized the pink is smaller than the Purple one. I bought one in Pink color, when they said keep the box for air dry the beauty blender. Every time, I tried to put the BB on top on the box come with it. my bb could not stand up for air dry.

Colorful Funky Storage Ideas...please share.
I know many ladies love their storage set up.  I love the makeup P.orn  (collection videos) I have noticed that many ladies have the ikea drawers or desks.  While I like the set up of those I have only come across one lady on YT (I know there are probably more) with a colorful make up storage system.     This YTer actually used colorful TOOLBOXES  you can get online and at Sears.  It's a really cute and colorful idea.    I'm not sure I'm allowed to post a link.   Any of you ladies have pics of your colorful storage ideas?     Please share them.

Fantabulous Makeup Storage, from Hobby Lobby!!
I had to show you all my new storage system... It's from Hobby Lobby's furniture section. It is intended to be storage for 12x12 scrapbook paper. The bottom two drawers are about 6 inches thick for some of my bigger items. The rest of the drawers are about 2 inches, which is the perfect size.   Each drawer holds its own set of products: foundations/powders, eyes, lips, lotions/serums, tools like tweezers/brushes, etc. The full price of the unit is $199 but one can use a 40% coupon so it is then $120.00. It's black, with some brown distressing, and the best part, it's on casters! It is about 42" tall. I actually have one for my scrapbooking room and one day I realized how perfect it would be for makeup.   Sitting on top of the unit is a square tray where I keep my perfumes. You can't see those from the picture because all my recent purchases and samples are piled up!

Has anyone used Celebration Foundation Illumination by IT Cosmetics?
I used bare minerals for many years and loved it. But now that I am nearing 50 it seems to be/look drying. I've been using LM silk cream foundation and LM Tinted moisturizer. I've just been hearing great things about IT foundation especially after reading the anti-aging ingredients! Anyone used it? Advice?  Celebration Foundation Illumination :  Formulated with Hydrolyzed Collagen, Peptides, Anti-Oxidants and Drops of Light™ Technology for the ultimate, soft, candlelit glow complexion. This full coverage foundation is infused with key ingredients such as Niacin, Hyaluronic Acid, Rose, Silk and Aloe that help to leave skin fresh and hydrated, never dry or cakey!

any Stila's One Step Complexion Brush #33 users?
Its hard to believe that 90~95% of this brush's reviews are 5 star "amazing, wow, etc"  I went to SDM to look for Dior's flat foundation brush and the lady looked at me as if I'm crazy in preferring the flat version of foundation brushes.. but I have dry skin and its very easy for buffing brushes to accentuate the flakiness and dryness more     but anyway, has anyone tried this brush and liked it? how do you use it? do you like it better than buffing or flat foundation brushes?

Okay, so I think I've found the PERFECT mascara combo ever! First, I curl my lashes. Then, I apply a coat of BareMinerals Flawless Defintion Mascara. After that, I layer a few coats of BareMinerals Lash Domination Mascara! I usually line my top lid with Stila's liquid eyeliner and use BareMineral's Lasting Line eyeliner on the outer corner of my waterline!

New Dr. Jart+ BB Radiance Beauty Balm
I just noticed online that there are a couple new Dr. Jart+ BB creams.     I'm kind of interested in the BB Radiance Beauty Balm. 6117?skuId=1603802   It says it isn't in any stores around me, maybe it isn't out yet except online?     I'm hoping to see swatches sometime or see the color IQ number.  I really like the Black Label Detox BB, but I need to make sure this will work with my coloring too.     Has anyone heard about it or tried it?

Stila's Set & Illuminate Baked Powder Trio question
Hello lovely BTs,   I am really getting into this powder. It's just so lovely. I'm wondering who else is using this and how you are applying it. What brush do you use? What technique works for you?   I'm using a kabuki brush and applying it by patting it on first and then sweeping the brush over my face. eyword=STILA%20Set%20%26%20Illuminate%20Baked%20Po ...

Lipstick match help!
I'm completely in love with the "nude brown pink" from the Makeup Academy Blockbuster video to complete the street style look. Is there an actual lipstick version of it I could purchase? Or a similar color by Sephora?   I would love to find the match of it because its much more convenient to have a lipstick in a bag rather than carry the whole set with me!

Peter Thomas Roth CC cream
I received a sample of PTR CC cream a few weeks ago and was keen to try it after hearing really good things from a friend. When I first put it on, I had a brief yet terrifying Oompa Loompa moment, but after putting on my Bobbi Brown Long Wear Even Finish foundation over it, my face my complexion looked the best it has ever looked!   Unfortunately, by the end of the day, the CC cream was still there but my foundation is nowhere to be found! I was an Oompa Loompa once more   I primed using Hourglass primer, set using Laura Mercier powder and the Urban Decay All Nighter Long-Lasting Makeup Setting Spray.    What went wrong? I'm so confused....    HELP!

I couldn't find the board for quite some time, so hopefully this will work.  The link is -Rouge-Chat-with-Sephora/m-p/1268278 - if that gets deleted, go to the Beauty Insider tab (on the left, the list of categories for the forum), then select VIB Rouge, and you should be able to see the thread.   You can also find the link by going to Plantgarden's thread "Tell Sephora HQ how to make the Rouge Program Work" and use the link provided in Candace's comment at the top.

My conclusions on makeup/skincare on days I go to the gym
Hey BTers,   I asked you all a while ago about makeup/skincare tips for days that I work out. Based on your suggestions, here's what seems to work well for me:   1. In the morning for work,I keep it simple by just wearing either foundation or BB cream, blush, eyebrow pencil and lipstick. Because my eyes are really sensitive, I don't wear any eye makeup before I work out because I don't want any residue getting into my eyes when I sweat.   2. Before I work out, I use a makeup removing wipe to get as much of it off as I can. Then of course tie my hair back.   3. After I work out, I use a mild face wash to remove the dirt and sweat. I don't use my regular cleanser because it's fairly strong, and since I use it morning and evening, I thought midday too would be too hard on my skin. I follow that with a mild toner (no alcohol) to remove excess dirt.   4. For makeup, I put on BB cream, mascara, a bit of eyeshadow, pencil my eyebrows and lipstick.   That's it! I hope this helps anyone wondering about skincare/makeup on days you work out.
