I'm replacing my older natural hair brushes with synthetics (mostly for ethical reasons). I'm having an extremely hard time finding good quality synthetics, along with the right shapes of brushes that I prefer. I've recently bought two 242 brushes from MUFE, and although I like their shape, they're a little scratchy. I know real techniques are synthetics, but I find their selection of shapes, and variety very limiting (especially for eyes). I'm thinking about trying out Luxie brushes, and Sigma brushes. I've never purchased from either before. If you have any experiences with these companies I'd love to hear it! I'd also love to hear other suggestions if you have any. It's extremely hard shopping for these types of products as it seems everyone is paid for their good reviews. It's really hard to trust anyone.
I don't think I seen a thread on this but has anyone tried this brush head? I saw a couple of you tubers using it and got curious. First off, as soon as I saw the new foundation brush head I thought I looked just like the satin luxe precision brush head. So me being me...of course I tried it out with the satin brush I already have and it worked really well. I wonder if they're basically the same brush with different colored bristles?
Everything from Beauty Bakerie is absolutely amazing and incredibly long lasting. I wore one of the lipsticks to prom and it lasted through till the NEXT DAY. This is after dancing, sweating, eating, and sleeping. My friends wear the eyeliner and they absolutely LOVE it. Every product stays on through everything. While most matte lipsticks are really drying, Beauty Bakerie lipsticks are not. They come in an insane amount of colors (literally anything you could think of) and finishes (matte metallic, matte, glossy)
Hello, I'm looking for a sunscreen that is either already in a moisturizer or as a separate creme that I can put under my makeup. And my makeup shouldn't dissolve because of the sunscreen. I had the problem before that my make up would run done my face after a few hours because of certain sunscreens. And I'm also looking for a sunscreen spray - so I can,,refresh'' my sunscreen after a few hours! My skin is combination - oily/normal and in the summertime I'm using philosophy renewed hope in a jar and in the winter philosophy renewed hope in a jar dry Would be great if you could recommend products that are available in Canada! Thank you!
I've been using the Glossier Milky Jelly Cleanser with my Clarisonic and even thought the cleanser removes all my face makeup it seems to trap it in the brush (leaving the brush stained looking and not white even after I rinse the bristles separately). Does anyone else have this issue?
I have a lot of doubles of deluxe samples and I saw here that people do a traveling box to exchange the samples I was wondering if I could start one and if I need to know anything before I do (I read the rules on another thread) and if anybody would be in! I have mostly skincare but a couple makeup items too Thanks!!!
I am looking for a eye shadow palette that can give me a vampy dark smokey eye, i use the Kat Von D everlasting liquid lipstick in shade vampira if that helps. I would also like my lips and eyes to match if that makes sense. Hopefully one of you can help me, thank you have a good day.
I was planning on purchasing the Too Faced Natural Love palette and had a tab open on my browser, but when I went to refresh it today, I found that the page had disappeared entirely. Did Sephora stop carrying this product already?
I'm looking for a sunscreen sampler for men. I have a guy with sensitive skin who needs to use sunscreen daily and isn't happy with what he's found. The current sampler has sunscreen-as-foundation and rose lip balm, which isn't really his thing. Is there a sampler I'm missing?
I am interested in the new line from Drunk Elephant, but have not made the purchase due to the price. Are there alternatives to the products, specifically the TLC Framboos Glycolic Night Cream and the C-Firma Day Serum?
Hello! I am on the hunt for a new facial oil. I've been using the Kate Somerville Dilo oil in the evening and like it, but have been looking at the Sunday Riley line. Maybe either Luna or Juno? I'm 37, I have pretty good skin (it's not dry nor particularly oily, no blotchiness, no acne to speak of). My main concern is anti-aging. I've never used a retinol product before. Don't you have to stay out of sun w/ retinol? I will be out in the sun playing tennis this summer so want to be careful about that (I wear sunscreen - SPF 50 or higher and a hat when I play). Any thoughts on which would be best? Or maybe I should do Good Genes instead?
I'm on a brush kick lately and I'm wondering what high-end and luxury brand brushes are TRULY worth the steep price. I'm fairly set on foundation brushes, but I'm looking for just the right bronzer, blush, powder (I'd prefer 'big' and dense), and eyeshadow brushes. I've tried a few Sephora brand, RT, and Ulta brand (when they still had their own line), but wanted to try more "heavy" feeling brushes especially with the sale going on! Thanks for any advice!
So today all of the cleansers from Glam Glow are on sale for $10 off ... Is anyone else wondering if they're being discontinued or just repackaged? . I really hope they're not being discontinue because this is my go to face wash! This stuff is amazing even when you're hungover AF this stuff will liven up your skin and make you feel amazeballz.
Just wondering if anyone knows why the large size of Good Genes is now $200 (Canadian)? Seems a little fishy to raise the price right before the VIB sale. Other people have been complaining as well saying it is $175 everywhere else. I was going to purchase it but this has really turned me off and is now making me question if I want to keep purchasing from Sephora.
Hey all-- My wedding is in four short weeks, and I'm wavering on whether to pay to have my makeup done or do it myself. I'm not sure if this is the appropriate place to post, but as VIBs/VIBRs, I think you all probably have as extensive a makeup collection as I do. Hence, I need some advice from others who may be as obsessed as me. What to buy for a makeup and hair kit with humidity being a big factor ? My hair will be half-up, lots of waves. Any ideas would be appreciated!! Esp. with the VIB sale coming up. Should I do it myself? I think I do a pretty good job doing my makeup. Maybe? It's just my hobby, so I'm constantly testing/improving/refining techniques. I had a 'good' MUA do my engagement photo makeup, and I hate, hate my makeup in these pictures. I don't know if I can trust again. LOL Has anyone done their own for a big event and were happier with that choice? That said. There are two major things I struggle with: Undereye concealer not creasing, but I have mega dark circles. I cover them well, which looks fine in pictures, but you can tell in-person. Applying false lashes - half the time one eye looks better than the other. Sunscreen is a HUGE must for me . I'm fair-light skinned, and we're getting married on a beach in the afternoon. Suggestions on brands/techniques to use that both layer well under makeup, considering high-humidity, and cause little flashback? I use Dr. Jart Every Day Sun, among other sunscreens with chemical + mineral SPF. Honestly, I use three sunscreens a day, layering them on different parts of my face. Contouring . Being fair, I'm considering the new Benefit Hoola Lite bronzer. Then I saw the Light-Medium Anastasia powder contour palette. It looks quite nice. Advice? Sorry for this long, self-serving post. I'm just in a worry-about-everything mode, and I'm so indecisive... Pics of me, for reference. And my dress for ideas about shades to use. The dress has a gold underlay, with ivory lace on top.
Looking for suggestions on which moisturizer I should switch too. Looking for something that is good under makeup! I have pretty normal skin, not oily and not dry. Used to use the Embryolisse lait creme concentre but Sephora doesn't sell it anymore. Any suggestions would be great! Thanks!!
Has anyone ever tried the ULTA beauty Super Juice 3 in one smoothies its a shower gel, bubble bath and shampoo all in one .I usually buy bath products from lush so if anyone knows about this brand lemme know .
I saw that Dr Dennis Gross Alpha Beta peels and the Peter Thomas Roth masks are being sold on Amazon at prices which are way less than Sephora. They are being fulfilled by Amazon as well. Does it mean that these products are not fake?
Hello, Now that summer is coming closer I'm looking for a spray (that I can spray over the make up) that has some sun protection or some drug store moisturizer (for combination skin) OR make-up with SPF! Thank you for your recommendations!
OK so last year I discovered the Peter Thomas Roth Cucumber Detox Bouncy Hydrating Gel, and it was 100% perfect for my issues. I have normal to dry skin, but I live in South Carolina and our summers get soooo hot and humid. In the summer months my skin gets... if not exactly truly oily , the humidity kind of gives me this oily film. Everything about the PTR gel was ideal for me... kept my skin hydrated, not too dry (a lot of oil free or oily skin moisturizers aren't enough for me even in summer) kept me fairly matte without aging me, acted as a great base for my makeup. But now it's been discontinued! I would love suggestions especially from anyone familiar with the PTR who could maybe suggest something similar. More info: I'm 41, fair skinned, mild rosacea. In the humidity, it is very easy for my pores to feel congested so I prefer lighter weight products, but I do still have a little dryness. No SPF, I am allergic to most sunscreens (definitely nothing chemical like octinoxate etc, sometimes physical sunscreens are OK but I never know until I try, so I prefer to just avoid). Ideally I'm looking for a similar texture to the PTR, but overall something lightweight, slightly mattifying, not overly drying. Thanks
Hello, I'm totally in love with the lancome color correcting cushion but sadly the price is too high for me. Is there a dupe? http://www.sephora.com/miracle-cc-cushion-color-correcting-primer-P406003?skuId=1781160&icid2=produc...
