Q. How long do you keep makeup?
Hi all,   We've seen the lists of recommended expiry times of different types of makeup. They honestly seem way too soon unless you're wearing the same face every day. Given the fairly large makeup collections a lot of us own, do you think that advice doesn't really apply as products would get used (and exposed to air/bacteria) maybe once a week or so?    I currently have in my collection some lipsticks/liners, eyeshadows/liners and blushes that are 4-5 years old. I also tend to keep mascaras *much* longer than 3 months as I keep a few in use at a time for different looks...   How long do you personally keep things if they're still good, and have they ever caused any infections or other problems?   ------------   Thanks, I feel a bit more confident about my old makeup now haha. Will also try to ditch the mascaras sooner. Most of them basically last forever though. I kind of doubt anyone's actually finished one. They either dry out, go bad, or you worry about how long you've had it. They should just halve the amount of product and sell it cheaper.

Q. Makeup Colouring
Hi, I am makeup obsessed but not makeup skilled. I have a really hard time deciding what colours would look good with my skin tone/hair/eye colour so I tend to just stick with nudes and neutrals. With Spring/Summer season on the horizon, I am looking to break out into some brights/something new. Somebody help me? Haha, I desperately need help trying to decide what products/colours would look good on me. Any suggestions would be SO appreciated! Thanks!   Spoiler (Highlight to read) Spoiler (Highlight to read)

Q. How often do you return items to Sephora?
I know Sephora offers a wonderful exchange/return policy... but I feel bad returning my items.  I feel like I return my items about 50% of the time because honestly, after the first use I can tell I already don't like it.  I don't want to get on their list (of bad customers) for returning too many items, I'm honestly not trying to rip them off.

Q. Brands that don't test on animals?
I'm very against animal testing. Does Sephora have any brands that either don't test on animals or are vegan? Does NYX Cosmetics test on animals? On there website they said some of their stuff was vegan, and they also had the cruelty-free bunny logo. However I heard that they were bought by some major animal testing company (L'oreal I think). Would that make NYX no longer a non-animal testing brand? I also heard that O.P.I. Nail Polish didn't test on animals. Just like with NYX I heard that O.P.I. was bought buy L'oreal. Does this make O.P.I. no longer a non-animal testing brand? Thank you!

Q. Makeover Essentials Cosmetics Makeup Line
I was at work today and a lady came in selling make up sets at reduced prices or she claims. The sales lady said that this product is sold at SEPHORA so I went to the store and asked an employee and was told that they have never heard of this make-up line. She said it was going to hit Macy's, Dillards, and Ulta next week. She was selling items priced at $39.99, the "eyes have it" shadow kit, priced at $25.99, and the "shimmer bronzer brush", priced at $29.99, for $20 dollars and so I bought one but now I am skeptical about it. They lead me to believe that it's a mineral based makeup like Bare Minerals. The colors are very pigmented. Has anyone else bought this stuff?

Q. How clean are YOUR brushes?
How often do you beauties clean your makeup brushes? This includes spot cleaning and deep cleaning. And what products do you use?   For the past two months, I've really kept up with spot cleaning my brushes after EVERY use... at least with my face brushes and my angled eye liner brush that I use for gel liner. Eye shadow brushes get spot cleaned when I feel like I've mixed way too many random colors together. I spot clean using MAC's Brush Cleanser sprayed on a wash towel.   My goal was to deep clean once a week with baby shampoo... but I've been laggin' lately   Let me know what you do!

Q. Eyelash Curler Comparison
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!
