I got the kiss pop I ordered in the mail today... Definitely not what I was expecting. On first looks, the packaging is super cute and feels very high quality. I ordered crush, which was described as a tangerine red, and all I'm seeing is tangerine. I'm very pale, and this comes out as a true orange on me in natural light. But mostly, this is far from moisturizing, in my opinion. It nearly crumbled when I applied it, and already my lips feel dry. I'll wear it around the apartment tonight, but I'm not so sure this will be staying. what are everyone else's thoughts on these?
Hey Beauties ! I was just here thinking and browsing the Sephora site along with my collection and it made me think about some stuff that just wasn't worth all the hype or wasn't all that . Most recently for me it has been the Benefit There Real Push up liner, it just wasn't a good consistency in my opinion and i totally could have done without it but anyway i thought i would start the discussion of what products have you purchased that wasn't worth the hype or you regret getting
Not sure if this is allowed? But I'm going to give it a shot and hope it doesn't get closed *covers eyes* What's on everyone's wish list for this sale? The sale started yesterday for card holders and will be available starting July 18! I'm having a hard time in finding anything I like on the previews I've seen so far! But I really want this!
So tomorrow, I was going to buy Lingerie de Peau & try the Meteorite in stores to see if I like them enough to buy them. BUT, I think I took for granted that because this is such a high end product, it did not contain talc. But it does! I am shocked. I'm not paying 60+$ for some pretty pearls made of talc. Is this just me or what? I never had problem with talk, and I wouldn't mind it too much if it was a 25$ powder, but for the price I'm paying, it better be talc free. Is is just me or if sometimes, luxury brands are a little behind in terms of ingredients and all? What are your thoughts?
I bought the Murad spot treatment and let's just say my blemish is now the least of my worries. I'm allergic to something in it and now have a red raised rash that looks like a million tiny little pimples. Uuuugh
I keep purchasing new things that catch my attention (or that I've convinced myself I need), but I simply can't get through all of the products I own. I don't have an issue tossing old mascara and liquid liners, but I absolutely hate the thought of tossing any other product before I've used every last bit of it. I've realized that it's impossible for me to use everything up unless I stop buying make-up altogether. What unused / unfinished products do you have trouble parting with? And what do you do about it? How do you use it up so you can move onto something new and exciting?
So Anastasia just released a new eyeshadow palette in collaboration with an amazing MUA/beauty blogger by the name of Amra Olevic aka "Amrezy" on Instagram. This collaboration took 8 months to create and is Anastasia's very first official partnership with a MUA. It is $29 dollars for 10 shades and this palette can only be purchased at the ABH website and in Ulta stores starting Monday. Some Ulta stores have it already. I am planning on purchasing it so if anyone wants swatches just let me know.
Sephora posted a few videos and he seems to talk more about the packaging than the product itself. He seems kinda clueless about his stuff in fact. Or in my opinion he does. Does he actually know about the actual makeup or just the packaging? If just feels awkward watching him and it seems like hes trying to figure out what to say about the product. What do yall think?
After getting a summer job and making some pretty good money so far, I decided I want to splurge on my first high end product. I wasn't sure at first but then decided on purchasing the Meteorites from all your reviews. Are the"magic balls" worth getting for sure? Thank you!!

I'll be posting regularly in here with random looks that I come up with! update: products used in for this look: Maybelline cream eye shadow in Barely Branded Wet n Wild Petal Pusher palette MAC Omega L'Oreal Infallible eye shadows in Burst into Bloom and Purple Priority L'Oreal Infallible gel eyeliner ELF cream eyeliner Cre8tion lashes in #41 and Ardell Demi Wispies
Once I get the box back I'll pick out some items and donate the remaining items to 'The River' (a local organization that takes and redistributes new and used makeup/beauty items to women in need). I've given beauty products to this organization before and they're really good. * Please make sure every item is in a plastic ziplock bag to prevent spills. Donts’s ■ DON'T keep the box for more than two days. Keep it moving! If you are traveling or a special circumstance comes up, we can work to rearrange things. (ALSO YOU MUST INCLUDE A TRACKING NUMBER it makes it more fun anticipating your turn) ■ DON'T put unsanitary items of any sort into the TSB. We want to have fun and get gorgeous, not sickly ■ DON'T put any drugstore items into the TSB. ■ No reserve items in the box for others, and don’t ask to have any items reserved for you. This is unfair to others participating. ■ DON'T swatch items from the box. This is a hygienic precaution that we must take, as a lot of people will be handling these items. ■ DON'T take more than what you put in. Please trade at or above each item’s retail value. Do’s ♥ Please contribute high-end beauty products only. No drugstore items. If you have questions or you are unsure of an item, ask! ♥ Unused, swatched or lightly used products are perfectly acceptable. Well-loved items are not (unless explicitly requested by the next person or there has been a posted picture and someone requested that item). Again, if you’re unsure, ask! ♥ Swatched/used items must be labeled as such. ♥ All opened items must be cleaned/sanitized prior to their addition to the box. ♥ Send your address to the person above you in a PM. ♥ Package things carefully!

If you cannot take photos, Do Not Sign Up, please *******PUT BETTER OR EQUAL PRICED ITEMS IN FOR WHAT YOU TAKE OUT TO KEEP UP THE INTEGRITY OF THE BOX********* Final Verdict on Mascara- A lot of the GWP mascaras are not sealed. It is ok to include these mascaras in the box ONLY IF THEY ARE UNUSED. Please be honest (it's a matter of health!). Also, please be aware that some of the mascaras may be dried out upon opening them. Only open them if you selected them as your item. Please be honest when it comes to this. Also, please pick up a large priority box at the post office prior to receiving the box. This is so we can streamline things (get the box to everyone faster in case the box breaks or there's a spill). -send your address to the person above you -post a picture and text what you are taking and what you put in BEFORE you send the box on. roxystar4 -------> 9405509699937585873456 1. bombshell30 -------> 91149011898666880867309 2. ghkim -------> 9405903699300192324806 3.

Hey beauts. So lately I've been feeling the urge to splurge on lipstick. Im terrified to pick something that looks amazing in the tube but awful on myself. I have no issues with colorful shadows but lips....eeeek. The picture have as my profile is my daily go to look. Ice also added it on my profile. Can't figure from my phone how to post it. Lol. Any suggestion you guys can give me as to what might look good. Based on skin tone and just in general. Thanks lovelys
So, for years I've been chasing that youthful glow, but now given the stellar contouring and highlighting products out there, I think I'd like to try some matte finishes with them. You know, velvety. Any recommendations on what to try? Oh…adding…my skin runs a bit dry and is fair with some freckles. Generous coverage would be a plus.
I posted a previous post about starting a traveling box with samples and deluxe samples and a few ladies were interested in doing one! This is the 1st traveling box I am apart of and of course the 1st that I am starting. So, we need to decide if we are going to do a medium or small flat rate box. RULES No used items. No open items DO NOT take more than you put in. Let's keep this fun and fair DO NOT take multiples of the same sample PLEASE try not to keep the box more than 3 days Make sure to send your address to the person listed above you Once you send the box off, post the tracking number in this thread ALL unused items allowed (well maybe not nail polishes if it will make the shipping costs go up) Post a pic of what you take out, what you put in and what is left in the box before you send it off THIS IS A DRAMA FREE BOX! We are going to have fun and try to keep this going as long as we can! If you are interested in being in the box, I have a few spots left so post a pic of what samples you have in this thread to be added. To start off, we are only going to have 10 people! 1. hollygohardly 2. MegEm 3.MLLECC 4. tessie84 5. Kittichick 6. NicoleFrat 7. NightKnight 8. Sweetxteeth 9. Nishcakes 10. BuxomBabe80
Does anyone have this? I just bought it from TF's website. But the color of the product itself is absolutely nothing like berry. It was actually closer to melted ruby than it would be a berry. It was also bright, which is unusual for a berry toned color. So I was wondering if it's like this for everyone, or I just got a weird batch.
I've been fairly lucky in finding HQ brushes in my go-to blushes. They've held up nice, don't shed and blend nicely. But I just bought a CHANEL blush recently and the brush is GARBAGE and now I'm looking for a good brush. I only use powder blushes, but could use a recommendation of something I could find at either Sephora or at a department store - I'm not interested in ordering online from Japan or Korea or something along those lines. Whaddaya got ladies and gents?
Does this look familiar to anyone? I found a post about this on INMYKIT on facebook. Benefit claims that the They're Real Push Up Liner is the first ever lash hugging gel eyeliner in a pen. However, that Maybelline pen gel eyeliner was released in 2013 . It's only available in Asian countries, I think. I'm not sure whether Benefit is claiming to be the first lash hugging gel eyeliner pen, or just the first gel eyeliner pen in general. What do you think? Did Benefit copy Maybelline?
Got an email today (July 6) that the Marc Jacobs Fall Beauty Collection will be available for early access tomorrow at 9 AM PST! It arrives in stores on July 24th. There are a couple previews on the Marc Jacobs Beauty site right now (which I can't link to, obviously) that look pretty interesting. I hope they've come up with a better mascara this time around!
I'm going to post a picture of me without makeup. Because hey, I love makeup, but I'm also working on embracing my face au naturel, too. None of this "I'm not wearing makeup" when you're wearing a tinted moisturizer, brown mascara, and have a slight flush to your cheeks and lips. I'm talking no makeup AT ALL (No, not even clear lip balm). This is me, about 10 minutes out of the shower. Anyone else brave enough?
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've been using True Lash for a while now (it was an impulse buy, and now I'm completely hooked), which is easily the best eye makeup remover I've found. http://www.sephora.com/product/productDetail.jsp?k eyword=KATE%20SOMERVILLE%20True%20Lash%E2%84%A2%20 ... The problem is that it's so expensive and a tube doesn't last long at all. It's pretty hard to justify as a must-have item. So I'm looking to replace it with something similar. I love the cream formula - I've found that oil removers leave me scrubbing which easily irritates my eyes and the lid area. The cream is so smooth and just glides on easily (plus it takes off everything). I really don't care about the True Lash claims to promote lash growth. I don't really think it works (and that isn't why I buy it). I'm pretty happy with my lashes already. I was looking at the Fresh Soy Conditioning Remover http://www.sephora.com/soy-conditioning-eye-makeup -remover-P384779?skuId=1585991 Clinique Take the Day Off Cleansing Balm http://www.sephora.com/take-the-day-off-cleansing- balm-P126301?skuId=886267 Benefit They're Real! Remover http://www.sephora.com/product/productDetail.jsp?k eyword=they%27re%20real%20remover&skuId=1626761&co ... and the Naturally Gentle Remover http://www.sephora.com/naturally-gentle-eye-makeup -remover-P122675?skuId=590927 I'm leaning towards the Fresh Soy Conditioning, but I'm open to other thoughts and suggestions!
Every time I try and do a winged eyeliner, it always smudges on my brow bone and crease. I've used waterproof ones before and it still does it. I have somewhat oily eyelids and my eyes go deep into the sockets when my eyes are open. Am I forever doomed?
Hello Everyone! I was recently going through my lippy stash to clear out any old or used up items and this I was left with. Please feel free to share your current lip stash and help brighten everyone's day with some pretty pictures Thanks!
I'm interested in trying the Tarte Amazonian Clay Blush, but I'm unsure of which color to buy. I have blonde hair, blue eyes and fair skin. I am a little tanner than usual at the moment, but I'd like something that will work in the summer months as well. Any suggestions?
