Okay, so I'm the kind of girl that loves to load my lashes up with tons of coats of mascara till they are long, spidery, and pretty darn stiff. (I really need to start buying some falsies, haha!) So at the end of the day when I'm ready to take all of my makeup off I start dreading removing my eye makeup and tend to remove it last because of how difficult it is for me. I get all nervous and have this fear of my eyelashes falling out because of how stiff they are with all the dried on mascara. Also, the mascara never really comes off completely (help!) and sometimes my lashes even hurt a little after I remove the makeup. Plus it doesn't help that my eyes are super duper sensitive and get all red and burn when removing my eye makeup. I know, I know you guys probably will say stop putting on so much mascara and you're right. For awhile I've been cutting the amount of coats I put on my lashes but it's still a pain to remove the mascara at night. Is there anything I can do to make the process easier? Maybe a certain technique or product? (By the way, I have been using cold cream on my eyelids and then wetting a washcloth with hot water and putting it over my face for a few seconds to melt the eye makeup.) Any help will be greatly appreciated!
I know that Glossybox let's you do a one-time purchase, and so does Wantable (although it looks like you can't see what's going to be in the box). What other companies do this? I want to be on top of this for the future in case any awesome boxes come out but I don't want to do a subscription. (I already am doing Sample Society, which I figure is enough.)
What makeup brand carries the best comprehensive line of brushes? I want to buy new brushes and am willing to spend because it is an investment. I read online that Chantecaille and Chanel have great brushes, but when I tested them in store I did not really like either. If I can, I would like to have all my brushes come from one brand so they match. If not, I'll mix and match the best of each line. The most important element for me is a good, big, soft, fluffy powder brush. Thanks for any advice!
hello everyone... uh my names Kunzya and I am in need of despite help, my face make up brush was chewed up by my dog and I cant use it very well anymore because it doesn't lay even anymore. I also need all new brushes in general. but I have a huge downside to this... I am severely allergic to animals especially there hair and I need synthetic quality good kind I've tried cheap ones they break me out in hives. HELP!! also I need to know if there is a make up pad remover out there that's hypoallergenic because im using Neutrogena and its giving hives as well . please I am despite for help. as well as wondering if the kat von d tattoo concealer really works to cover up tattoos. knowing that would be a huge help
Hello, I'm in dire need of an excellent foundation/bb creme that actually works. I have combination skin with constant breakouts and acne scars/dark spots. I need something with coverage but does not cake up, also something very light.. I'm very pale and find most of the "light" shades to be to dark. I find the full coverage foundations work well at first, but then ball up and look cake and emphasize my dry patches.. Ugh. I use a primer too, benefits porefessional. I have probably spent $1000 trying different products hoping they will work. Also looking for a good setting powder. So ladies please help me out.. What products have the power of giving flawless skin... i know they're out there. I know it's hard to see what my skin looks like since I have no pictures .. But just imagine very light uneven skin with hormonal acne and dark acne scars along the cheeks. Maybe if any of you ladies have a holy grail face routine you could post a before after picture or describe in detail on how you apply your makeup. I am sick and fed up of products being too dark and not doing a very good job. Thank you! Anything helps.
I'm drooling over Chanel Melodieuse lipstick and the Chamade cream blush. However, these colors are bold, and I'm not sure how they would do on my skin tone. I would love to see swatches of those (and any of the other items from this season's collection)!
I noticed that Sephora quit selling Benefit She Laq , so I went to Benefit Cosmetic's website and noticed that they had it listed as "out of stock". I thought this strange so I called Benefit's Customer Service Line and the rep I spoke with confimed that She Laq has indeed been discontinued. I am so disappointed! She Laq was a great product and I can't believe it has been discontinued. Is anyone else sorry to see this product go? tenngal
I'd love to know what you gals (or maybe guys) use or suggest as a primer. In addition to longevity I'm looking something with a smoothing effect for pores and baby wrinkles. I am finishing up my Stila color correcting primer which did nothing for my slight redness but it def gave staying power. I had been waiting for months for sephora to restock illamasqua hydra veil buttttt it seems like they won't be restocking it at all. And I don't want to pay the ridiculous taxes and shipping to have it sent from the UK. I was looking at the Clarins or too faced. Any suggestions??
I'm 25, and being a tomboy, I never wore makeup unless it was for an event and always had it done on me. In fact, I hate spending time on my face and avoid everything except for washing with a facial cleanser a couple of times a day. Having graduated college recently, I've come to realize that I need to start caring about how I look. I have no idea what primers, concealers, blush, gloss, liners, and shadows are, where they go, in what order, or what different brushes, sponges and pads are for. I'm a tanned Filipina with a history of acne and related scarring on my face. I have an oily face and really want to avoid breakouts, which have happened when makeup was put on my face in the past. I spent the day on this site and figured that my first step should be a concealer... so I just ordered the Benefit Concealaholic kit... which I am now worried about because i have darker skin. Since everything on here kept on telling me to prep, I also ordered the Benefit Primers kit because i read that some primers make people break out and figured that id have to do trial and error for this. Did I order the right things?! Please help! I wish they had a class for asocial geeks who have to try to grow up and dress like women!
Okayy so I wanted to know what the best waterproof mascara is. I need one that will hold up all day through swimming, humidity, and sweat. I prefer one on the cheaper side (15-20 dollars), but if you have a really excellent one that is fine too.
I have the hardest problem finding makeup products that work with my skin, I am looking to cover up my post acne red marks and create a flawless base. My skin type is quite combination, dry in areas but will also get oily throughout the day. I am also very acne-prone so I try to avoid anything that may cause breakouts. What would you recommend?
I am a high school engineering student and as my final senior project I am looking to solve a problem that many people have with makeup application. If you have a problem that a new product or innovation could solve, please comment! Any ideas are appreciated!
Hey girls and guys! I know it's January, but I planned a vacation a month ago and the excitement is eating me up! I'm going to the beach and I want to look nice, but not overdone. A natural, beach look! Please suggest any items to me that have worked well! I'm light skin tone (hopefully not after the trip, eek.) and I have rather dry skin with acne scarring that I want covered up! I also have green eyes and blonde hair (if that affects anything, I'm not sure.) Please help a girl out!
The best eyelash curlers really depends on people's eye shape and preference. After terrible experience with a couple of the hyped/popular curlers, I decided to do a comparison between the ones Sephora carries: Shiseido, Lancome, Tarte, Sephora and Tweezerman. Hopefully it will be of help to you, too. Tarte, 1 replacement pad+mascara : smaller and rounder than other 4 curlers and have the squishy-est pad. Parts a bit loose and the middle comes together first so if you don’t squeeze firmly, it looks like ><. Tarte (left) and Shiseido (right). You can see tarte is smaller and rounder. Sephora, 2 replacement pad : Have the firmest pad of all 5 curlers. Comparable to Shiseido, both a tiny bit flatter than other curlers. When I use Shiseido and Sephora, the middle part press against my eyes first, when using Lancome, the whole side+middle press against my eyes at same time. Shiseido, 1 replacement pad: Medium/normal firm pad, comes together evenly. It have a unique dip on the corners, unlike any other curlers. Due to vertical curve of the curler and dip, it actually irritates my eyes and it water every time I use the curler. =/ Shiseido (left) and Lancome (right). You can see the dip in Shiseido while Lancome and other curlers don't have the dip. Lancome, 1 replacement pad : similar to Tweezerman, both very slightly rounder than Shiseido and Sephora, medium firm pad. Tweezerman ProCurl curler, 3 replacement pad : very nice weight, feels durable. 3 replacement pad. Curls all my lashes at once. Couldn’t tell the difference between this and Lancome, except this have a nice weight and feels sturdy (none of the parts feel loose). It also says free sharpening and life time warranty (why would you sharpen your curler?) All in all, if you've got smaller or rounder eyes, go for Tarte. If your eyes are deeper set, Shiseido curler's dip corner will help you get the corner lashes. If you like a firm pad (pro: no sharp kinks/angle. con: require more force to squeeze for a good curl), go for Sephora. Tweezerman feels nicer in my hand than Lancome, but honestly my eyes don't feel a difference when I was curling. I ended up getting the Tweezerman cuz it's got the most replacement pad, and Sephora one cuz it's sturdy and I tend to be heavy handed but don't want to crinkle/cut off my lashes. Happy curler shopping!
I am looking for a blush! My skin has a few freckles I have light skin. On my cheeks I have a little redness but if I put on a pink or reddish blush my skin looks sun burnt! Thank you! Nothing glittery please Paraben free products are appreciated I like the look of dewy fresh skin
My little cousin is turning 13 this month, and she has just started getting into make-up. Just some eyeliner and powder foundation, not too much. I thought it would be lovely if I took her to Sephora to pick out her own products, of course with a $60 limit (i'm a college student, not made of money!). The only problem is, I have NO idea what products to guide her towards! She wants me to teach her how to use eyeshadow, so I need suggestions on what brands to use. I'm thinking Sephora brand, since she is just learning. But as for any other product types, like lip gloss/mascara/etc., any suggestions would be extremely helpful!
Does anyone know if Sephora plans to release a Aurora or Belle Disney palette? I have already purchased my Ariel palette, which I am so happy they made, and I'm just dying to know what they plan to release in the future. Any info would be great; thanks!!!
I'm 13, and i usually buy drug store makeup. I got some money for my birthday that i want to spend, and i want to go to sephora. I want a cream shadow, a lip color, and maybe a blush or bronzer. But i need them to be cheap. Thanks!
Are NARS blushes overrated? Will the color 'Orgasm' show up on my skin tone which is medium/tan? Good for oily skin? Also someone told me that Elf's Candid Coral is a good alternative for NARS Orgasm because it cost less, anyone else agree or know anything about Elf's blushes? Sorry I'm just a little hesitant to buy NARS. But thank you to anyone that replies(:
