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?
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!
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.
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
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.
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'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?
I'm a couple hundreds away from Rouge, so I'm just gonna cover my eyes, block my ears, ignore my bank account and RUN for it! And make spending less my New Year resolution/challenge for 2014. In that spirit, I would like to know what's the most expensive item you have that is worth every penny and why? fancy makeup? skincare made of gold? On another note I have several of everything except.....hydrating mask and toner. So, what's your favorite hydrating mask? I know there's Fresh Rose, PTR cucumber, OH blue/blackberry....anything else? your favorite?
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
Okay ladies, I noticed something SO weird while browsing around the christmas gift set area today at my local Walmart. I recently purchased the Sephora Rose Gold Mineral Brush Set on sale at Sephora for $29, so I know exactly what it looks like in person and online. I've felt and played around with the brushes and I'm positive I've found the EXACT same set at Walmart for $14.. right down to the details and texture of the travel case. The only thing is it isn't labeled at Sephora, theres no silver hardware on it that says so, but i opened the package and saw the exact same brushes right down to the colour and size of the same set i have and payed double the price.. and originally double THAT price! How insane is that.. I've attached pictures to show you. NOT cool. Here is the brush set on sale at Sephora now: http://www.sephora.com/rose-gold-mineral-brush-set -P309107
Just posted via their fbk page: "Cyber Monday exclusive! FREE SETS with code! Shop early to save more. TODAY ONLY spend $35 to earn a free set of your choice: enter CORE for the core collection, STARTER for the starter set, or TRAVEL for the travel essentials at checkout."
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?!
So I know some ladies here use Mario Badescu products, and others have gotten samples from them*. Their lines get pretty good reviews and I really like their rosewater/aloe facial spray so I decided to try a couple more products. What did you ladies get? Any favorites? For reference, I have oily/combo in the summer and dry/combo in the winter (nowish). Orange Tonic mask - It smells like orange juice but it looks white. It is a thin clay mask, like Glamglow white or Boots Botanic but a little lotion-y instead of watery. It's a soft mask and you can feel a gentle tightening as it dries. It rinse off ok but....doesn't leave me with a super clean feeling like Origins charcoal that I use.... Strawberry Face scrub - It smells like strawberry gum, and the scrub is basically a light pink cream with sparse amounts of strawberry seeds. It reminds me of Origins Modern Friction, altho I prefer thick paste of grains rather than cream/watery solution with sparse grains. Enzyme Cleansing gel - It's non-foaming gel cleanser, kind of like Anthony Logistic glycolic, with a very mild pleasant scent. After rinsing, my skin felt clean and comfortable. It does cleanse off makeup but you have to rub it in for at least 10-20 seconds (tested with UD eyeliner, powder eyeshadow and KVD lipstick) Special Cucumber lotion - It reminds me of Clinique toner 2 (with an even shorter ingredients list). Both have a astrigent scent, refreshing and leaving no residue on the skin. Clinique toner 2 does dry my cheeks out in the winter and this didn't. This also didn't sting even when my skin is a bit sensitive after a peel. I might get this for next summer..... Hyaluronic Eye cream - It's a normal cream, not lightweight and not heavy. There's absolutely no scent and it does not irritate even around lash line. A great basic eye cream for sensitive eyes and, pretty much all skin types unless you are super oily or super dry. Collagen Moisturizer SPF15 - scentless, a lightweight cream that sinks in easily. It's perfect for combo/normal skin and I would imagine this is good for sensitive skin. Nothing super fantastic about it but very nice. Facial Spray with Aloe, Herbs and Rosewater - this is actually the first thing I brought from the brand. I like the simple natural ingredients list. Very mild rose scent and feels just like water on the skin. In addition to use on skin it's great for taming my static-y hair in the winter. They are a pretty natural brand with simple ingredients list, which I like. I'm not a fan of the mask and scrub. The eye cream and moisturizer are good but nothing fancy (but then again, they also don't cost $50 per oz or something). I'm going to purchase a full size cucumber toner and the drying cream to try next time (after my wallet recovers from all the Sephora holiday goodies). *Mario Badescu will mail you free samples if you fill out the skincare survey on their website. It doesn't always work, so make an account, do the survey, maybe even put the products in your basket and wait. If you don't get an email within the week then try again?
I just received my palette in the mail and I have a few questions for anybody who has it also. 1) Does it come with a protective cover? 2) Is it normal for the different colors to be different heights? I noticed they go from ascending height from left to right and I am wondering if they should be exactly the same or if mine might be used. It is difficult to tell if it's been used/swatched like with eyeshadows or something because it's a mineral and it's not a completely uniform powder. I picked up some powder with my brush and it basically looks the same so I don't know if I'd ever be able to tell. Regarding the height thing I've never noticed a difference with eyeshadow palettes but this is a face one. I have the Nars cheek palette but didn't really notice anything with that (maybe it's more noticeable here because they're domed?) I could totally be OCD about this... Thanks for any responses. EDIT: Can't edit my title but I meant to say "Lighting" instead of "Light" palette.
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?
There are 2 people that I've come to really respect their knowledge of skin care and makeup: Lisa Eldridge and Caroline Hirons. Lisa is exceptional at knowing how to make makeup wear and look better, while Caroline is equally brilliant at understanding the skin and what ingredients it does and does not need--and she is blunt, straight-forward, and speaks from knowledge, not theory. To follow are Caroline's "Things I Say Over and Over Again". I know a lot of my questions have been answered by her blog--especially her "Cheat Sheets", so I'd thought I'd share with y'all in case it helps even just 1 person. Enjoy! 1. You are obsessed with your pores. They do not open and close like doors. You say they are HUGE - then send me a picture and I can SEE NOTHING. We CANNOT see your pores. The only person that can see your pores close-up is your opthamologist - or your boyfriend. Your opthamologist is looking at your eyes. Not your pores. And if your boyfriend is thisclosetoyou and notices your pores? He's gay. Or not attracted to you. Or at best, rude. Rethink the entire relationship. 2. You overuse the Clarisonic. A lot of you. A LOT of you. You can use it - you're just not meant to use it every time you brush your frigging teeth. Step away from the trendy facial tool and wash your bloody face properly. 3. Nothing good ever came from scrubbing your face with a peach kernel. There's a reason they are 99p. Step away. 4. In general, foaming is what you want Fairy Liquid to do. Not your cleanser. And to the brands: I am unapologetic. 5. Freckles are cute. At any age. You will do damage to your skin trying to get rid of them. Leave them alone. Embrace them. 6. Stress is the key to most flare-ups, whether they are acne, rosacea or eczema. Practise relaxation. And not in some hippy-dippy way. Seriously. See the bigger picture. Chill. 7. Inflammation is the root of all evil. Eat less sugar, take more fish oil supplements. A lot of fish supplements. 8. Natural doesn't mean you won't react. Essential oils are one of the biggest triggers for skin. 9. 'Dupes' belong in makeup and nail varnish. There is no 'dupe' for a high quality, years-of-research-behind-it skincare product. 10. Spend your money on supplements, skincare, foundation and concealer and scrimp on the rest. You will look fabulous. 11. If you would spend more on shoes, handbags, lipstick, jeans or fashion in general than you would on high quality skincare - you will be a sixty year old woman (and man) with a vintage wardrobe and a face like an alligator.
I am really having a problem with not being able to make notes about products. I like some products for certain things but I can't note that so I have to go back and read the description to remember why I put it in my loves. Also, after returning an item I purchase it again because it sounds great and I don't know I don't like it. Does anyone know if there is a way to do this?
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?
