As a student seeking to pursue art as a major and a makeup junkie, I've come to share with you how I mix the best of both worlds. First up; THE NIJI ROLL! I use this to carry my paint brushes and color pencils around, so I figured it would work very well as a makeup brush carrier too! Sadly, the slots are a bit small for kabuki brushes though I think I'll use this to also carry my mascaras, eyeliners, lip liners, and anything else narrow or pencil like. Now I've also seen this hype on the beauty blender hard brush cleaner. The first time I saw that I thought it was just an overpriced version of The Master's Brush Cleaner. I love it. It can somehow strip the oil off of a paintbrush when turpentine could not, yet still condition the brush. If you need to reshape your brush, you can keep the soap in your brush, let it dry the way you wanted it to be shaped, and wash it again after a day or two. And those blockbuster carrier cases that cost almost 200$? I swear to god this works almost exactly the same way. Or any carrier case actually. I'm pretty sure you can use art brushes as makeup brushes as well; some of them are very soft and durable. They're not cheap, but at least they don't cost 20$ a brush. I haven't tried this yet, but I'm going to go find an angled shader and liner brush for eyelining and a small sablette for the lips. Of course these wouldn't be the prettiest things in your vanity, but they're great if you want to save a dollar to spend more on actual makeup. These are all I can think of for now. I'll post more when I get other flashes of inspiration.
the past two years I've been using CLINIQUE Moisture Surge Intense For Very Dry To Dry Combination Skin however it's ingredients on sephora do show what it's formulated with out like harmful chemicals. I'm slowly doing research. It just so much haha>.<. Clinique has been the only moisturizer that does not break me out but I'm still a little ify on its chemicals. can anyone enlighten me(: or have suggestions? And great moisturiser? I'm on empty and wad going to pick up another moisture surge.
Hey, I was wondering if anyone has tried this kit and has some feedback about it. I have only tried a sample lipstick from KVD before, so I don't know much about her products. I really love the palette. Do the purples come out pigmented? Are the other products good?
Today I was thinking about products I had never heard of, or didn't expect to find, and then loved. Recently I went by Victoria's Secret (which I don't usually shop for a whole list of reasons), because I had a $10 promo gift card with no minimum purchase... so I figured, free stocking stuffer. But of course I got something for MYSELF haha! I am picky about beauty (and other) products, and normally only use high-end, stuff I've tested, and stuff that's highly recommended. I honestly don't even have any drugstore products in my house, I'm that picky. But I tried their Lip Primer on a whim and I LOVE IT. It's $12, so a reasonable price. It has this velvety not quite matte finish that makes my chapped or irritated lips look smooth and soft with soft edges. I was totally shocked by this sleeper that I have never heard of! It also has the slightest light peachy tint, so it looks great blurred outside my lip line as a smoother and soft of highlighter. It's also not too squishy and not TOO stiff and waxy. I like lip primer on the slightly waxy side. Do you have a favorite find that you weren't expecting, never heard of, or was kind of obscure or surprising? EDIT: In doing a search for this post I found out this product is being discontinued! So sad. I am going to pick another one up this week if they still have them, as a back up. Seriously, this is so sad for me I rarely find a product I love!
I neeeeeed this. It is 12/4 and X-mas is right around the corner. Why haven't they released the new set yet? Does anyone know when it will come out? A few weeks ago, someone on here posted a pic from instagram of the new set and it looked amazing! These make perfect gifts so I don't understand where it is. Last year I gave one to my mom and she LOVED it. Can a mod please share? Thank you!
This should be fun! I thought why don't we fill in the blanks of what we are primarily using right now. It would be fun to see the variety of answers! Foundation: Concealer: Eyeliner: Eyeshadow: Powder: Blush: Bronzer: Lipstick: Lipgloss: Mascara: Brows:
Hello all! I am doing a secret Santa at school with a bunch of friends and I am trying to figure out what to get. We are juniors in high school and I know the girl I have wears makeup often. Any ideas? Looking to spend less than $25. Only thing I could find was this Too Faced palette. What do you think? http://www.sephora.com/jingle-all-the-way-P383427
I've received a lot of questions regarding Animal Testing and decided to start a thread for everyone to participate in. Since we carry over 200 other brands the ones I've listed below have confirmed that they do not test on animals. My research is still a work in progress for brands not listed so if any of you know of brands that do not animal test and isn't listed feel free to add to this thread. I'd appreciate your help with this project!
Our private label Sephora Collection and Sephora Originals (Hello Kitty, Kat Von D, Sephora by OPI, and Pantone) are cruelty free (meaning that the products have never been tested on animals).

I hope this helps everyone!
P.S. I will be updating this list as we are constantly adding and removing products on our site. If you have any questions regarding brands listed above, please contact them directly as they may reformulate products and change manufacturers.
I was wondering if this is going to be available for purchase in Sephora (Canada) at all! I've been seeing this product available for some time now and I wonder if Sephora is ever going to have it available?
I'm thinking of buying it with my gift card. I'm on the east coast so would probably have to stay up half the night for it to show up on the website. It's supposed to be available tomorrow (the 6th). Anybody going to stay up late to get it?
Okay so this might sound really odd, but I was sitting at my desk reading, and I heard this strange sort of buzzing noise. I looked over at my Clarisonic, which is charging next to me, and thought "no way!" And sure enough, my Clarisonic is making a noise! Is this normal or is mine broken?!
Three hours ago, Urban Decay posted on Facebook, "...we’ve worked hard with our retail partners Beauty dotcom, Sephora and Ulta to move up the online launch of Naked3 to 12/6 instead of 12/9."
So there you go! At Sephora, Ulta, and Beauty dotcom it will be available this Friday! Everywhere else (e.g. department stores) will have it on 12/9.
Title says it all. I'm just looking for new amazing things to try and I would love to know your absolute favorites! And then just tell me why you love it so much! You can list as many as you want but don't list your whole make up/skin care/hair care/whatever else collections just the ones that really stood out in amazement to you when you first tried them all the way u till today. Im kind of a newby to trying out all sorts of things. I've only really tried out sephora so mine will be from there but you guys could choose anywhere. Okay 1. Dior lip balm lip enhancer Why I love it: I lovee my natural lips. So I don't want to cover up my natural color (which is a bit of a redish pink) I just want them to stand out a little more. The balm brings blood flow to your lips in the same way a mood ring does to take your natural color and make it brighter! Now I get compliments all the time with people "wow I love that color is that your natural lip color or lip stick"? 2. My origins brightening eye cream: really helps to make tired eyes look wide awake add a touch of concealer and bam it looks like you had perfect rest! 3. Lancôme xl mascara booster mascara base: love this stuff makes a hugeee difference with my mascara and you dont have to layer as much mascara because it gives you that great layered look with just one or 2 other mascaras so that saves a bit of money lol. That's my only loves so far like I said I haven't tried too much.
Okay so the Clarasonic Mia being on sale is really tempting me to buy it but it's still so stinking expensive. Is it reallllly worth the money? If I'm going to splurge should I get a different Clarasonic or is there no big difference between them all?
Sephora has this listed as 95$ in their 10$ and under section. I called in and the girl told me it was a mistake and that it would be removed right away and that it is 95 and it is not a typo that should say 9.50 . What do you all think. http://www.sephora.com/dermal-quench-liquid-lift-a dvanced-wrinkle-treatment-P306941?skuId=1412808
Just throwing this out there. I know it's expensive (it's been on my loves for a while, but still not sure if I want to try it or not - don't know if I need it?), normally $98 on the Sephora site. Comes with a Flawless Skin Perfecting .5 oz. eye gel cream as well. Tempting!
I've compiled a list of gluten-free beauty products available on sephora.com.
Gluten: Gluten is a protein derived from wheat and related grains, including barley and rye. There are some cosmetics products labeled as gluten-free. If you are interested in these products look for statements like “gluten-free” or “no gluten” on the product package label. Because of periodic changes in product ingredient formulations and sources, for the most up-to-date information we recommend contacting brands directly regarding gluten-free status of their products.

Smashbox has advised that the following products do contain gluten; the rest of their line (with the exception of seasonal items such as palettes and limited edition products) are gluten-free.
Smashbox items which contain gluten:
Bionic Mascara (Jet Black), Layer Lash Primer, Halo Hydrating Perfecting Powder (all shades), Doubletake Lip Color (Praline, Sugar Spice, Cranberry), Lip Treatment SPF 15
We cannot claim that any of our products are gluten free. Some of our products contain ingredients/source of gluten [wheat germ oil, vit E etc]. As all our products are produced by the same production line and although a very strict cleansing procedure is followed after every production, we have not the possibility to check our products for traces of eventually allergical ingredients in low-value (high-ratio) proportions [parts-per-million (ppm)]. Thus we cannot claim for our products that are gluten free.
Products which do not contain gluten as an ingredient-
