We're blabbing about everything else these days, I figured I'd check in and see what people are watching when it comes to TV shows and movies! It would be foolish to think that this thread could remain spoiler free, so let's be courteous to one another and be sure to spoiler your spoilers. If you don't know how, it's that super adorable little yellow button on the toolbar, located to the right of the bold/italic/underline/strikeout buttons. DONT FORGET: If you happen to be the most recent post, your first sentence or two of your post will show up EVEN IF ITS IN A SPOILER. So please take care if you're going to go dropping spoiler bombs. Anywho... I just saw the movie PHOENIX last night and it was absolutely spectacular. Like Academy Award spectacular. If you're fortunate enough have showings in your area, I cannot urge you enough to go see it. So whatcha'll watchin' these days? What are you anxiously waiting for to start back up?
Today I went to the Houston Galleria for a bit of Nordie shopping and Ritz sight seeing. I got pulled into a Vine Vera boutique and was suckered....ahem, I mean....sold on their exfoliator, moisturizer and eye serum. The price tag was pretty hefty and if it wasn't for the BOGO which brought it closer to my level I would have laughed myself out the door. My problem...in all my skin care search I have never heard of this brand. Is anyone familiar with it or did I just become a very expensive guinea pig?
I recently went to my local sephora store and one of the cast members told me that there might not be a vib rouge november 2015 sale because apprently people were taking advantange of the past rouge sales and returning everything to get the full refund. does anybody know any details regarding the november sale?
Back in May I purchased the Kat Von D foundation and tried it one time. It broke me out but I figured it that time of the month so blamed it on that. So I continued to use my Makeup HD product.. Well I ran out last week and this week finally started to use the Kat Von d and even with primer and setting spray it will not look right. Its way to shiny and the color is too light on my face, plus I broke out again. So it’s been over 90 days since I purchased it, would I still be able to return it t to the store?Anyone know? thanks!!
I've recently bought a Clarisonic Mia 2 and been using the acne brush and cleanser, I only use it once a night and was wondering what moisturizer I should use to help clear my acne and acne scars? I also been noticing some dryness on my forehead so I need a moisturizer that will help.
Hi Everybody! I am curious if anyone has followed the same nighttime skincare routine for quite some time and would like to share? I have been bopping around with brands so I haven't become loyal to any yet. I am loyal to certain kinds of products tho. I love toners and beauty oils. I have my Clarisonic Mia 2. Which I love but haven't used any face wash with it besides the Clarisonic brand. My full nighttime ritual is: 1. Clinique Take the Day Off Oil 2. Lancôme Bi-Facil Double Action Eye Makeup remover 3. Boscia Detoxifying Black Cleanser or Mia with Clarisonic Acne wash (depending on day. Only use my Mia 2 or 3 times per week) 4. Neutrogena Pore Minimizing toner 5. Shiseido Ultimune Power Infusing Concentrate. 6. Clinique Turnaround Overnight Moisturizer 7. Philosophy Hope in a Jar eye cream. A lot of steps I know! I skip some depending on how dry or oily my skin is currently. Plus when I use a mask I'll skip toner and once a week I use my Erborian Solid Oil Cleanser. If anyone has a ride or die routine they have been loyal to for a long time please let me know. I love suggestions and seeing what other people swear by!
Hi Ladies! So, I am testing Boscia Clear Complexion Moisturizer right now. But, I am looking for recommendations from you all from experience! I have combination skin. Pretty oily around my nose, forehead and chin. Recently, I have been kind of dry on my cheeks. Looking for something to balance it out. I am using Marc Jacobs foundation and don't have a set primer right now. (Trying out some different ones). I also have been using the First Aid Beauty Skin Rescue Oil-Free Mattifying Gel Moisturizer, but was told to just use it on my oily spots, because my cheeks are dry right now and it was looking dry under my foundation. I know this is a lot of information, but I need help choosing a moisture for day/night to keep my skin hydrated so it doesn't get dry and flaky and doesn't cause it to create more oil. And doesn't look oily under makeup! Thank you!
Am having an interesting experience. Three days ago my lips were tingling, itchy, I kept biting them and ended up with swelling. The really itchy part is at the corners and mostly the bottom lip exterior lip line. Day 1, tingling, itchy, but also a rash (not itchy) up the front of my neck. day 2, yesterday, swollen lips, I was kind of ungraceful speaking. Still itchy. Day 3, today, much better, itchy but not quite as bad. have narrowed it down to a few possibilities. One, a vit C serum I had used two days in a row, issue happened on the second day, maybe it got too close to my lips? Two, I used a lipstick I had not worn in a while, but I haven't had issues with previously (or the brand). Three, I was helping someone move and was handling basement boxes in a dusty environment, I could tell mold and mildew were around, and I do remember trying to scratch my lips without using dirty hands (used my sleeves) while moving boxes. friends have told me lips often mean a food allergy but not sure what it could be, my diet is consistent. Anyone else have similar issues and figure out what it was?
I found a bottle of PTR Retinol Fusion PM that I had stored in a cool, dark spot a year ago. Dumb me!! Could I still use it, or do I need to suck it up and spend money to buy a new bottle? Thanks for your help!
has anyone with combination skin tried the Tatcha mist? I get oily around my nose but and normal/occasionally dry on the cheeks. The packaging is gorgeous and I'm a sucker for pretty purples. Just wanted to see what a non dry skinned person thought.
I've been coloring my hair for many years using Loreal products. Until about 6 months ago I was using a very very light shade of blonde. My natural hair color is dark blonde. In the past 6 months I've switched to a darker blonde permanent hair color (level 8 or so). The problem is that the color doesn't seem to "stick" to my hair for very long at all (like maybe a week or two). All my hair is now pretty much back to super white. I'd like to get away from the super white blonde because it is frying my hair, I think it is aging (and who wants that?), and I'd like a more natural shade. Should I switch to a non-permanent color in dark blonde? Will I need to touch it up more often? Will it allow my natural color to grow out more w/o lightening all my hair? I'll add that I am outside a lot in the summer, swim in chlorine (I try to use a swim cap religiously), and wash my hair about every-other-day. I don't use any special shampoos other than a purple one about 1x a week to chase away brassiness. TIA for any suggestions!
I am looking to try a new tinted moisturizer, specifically I'd love to try the Laura Mercier tinted moisturizer. I currently wear the Clinique Moisture Surge tinted moisturizer in shade 01 (Alabaster it's called I think). I tried using the online ColorIQ to see what other products would be a match to this shade but the clinique tinted moisturizer wasn't one that I could select. Does anyone know what the comparable shade would be in the Laura Mercier tinted moisturizer? Other suggestions for tinted moisturizer would be great too. I have very dry skin, so I prefer something very moisturizing and / or illuminating. Thanks.
Since there's a thread for nighttime routines, I thought I'd start one for the AM. Since I have sensitive/oily skin, I keep my morning routine pretty short and sweet: Cetaphil facial cleanser First Aid Beauty Skin Rescue Mattifying Gel Moisturizer Share your morning routines!
For the first time in my life, I'm experiencing an acne flareup -- mostly between my eyebrows and on my lower cheeks. It's out of control. Any products work especially well for anyone? I greatly appreciate your suggestions and will heart every one. Thank you for sharing!
hi everyone! i have dry to combination skin and for the past couple years my face was totally clear. but starting earlier this spring, i got these tiny colorless bumps all over my forehead. i cant seem to get rid of them at all and now theyre spreading to my cheeks too!! ive done tons of research and have tried both cleansing and hydrating them but theyre not budging. i know this isnt a dermatology forum, but my dermatologist was no help. have any of you had this problem and do you know any products thatll help me? thank you! <3
Hey all, I am in my late 20s and have dry, dehydrated skin that tends to get dull, greyish looking from time to time. I also have some old acne spots and hyperpigmentation spots that I want to lighten. For the spot lightening, I have been using the Caudalie Vinoperfect Radiance serum which seemed to noticeably help for the first 3 weeks, but now I don't see much of a difference. This is something weird I've noticed about my skin in general. It tends to reach a constant state after a while Anyway, some of my acne scars (esp the newer ones) have lightened a bit so I'll continue to use the above serum. However, I would really like to incorporate some products that would help brighten the skin overall, and maybe also aid the scar lightening along the way. My skin looks really lack lustre sometimes Enlisting my routine here in case it helps: Morning: Skip the cleanser in the morning usually, or use Fresh Soy Cleanser if feeling greasy OH Truth serum, followed by Caudalie Vinoperfect Radiance serum Eye cream with SPF: OH or Supergoop OH Advanced hydration moisturizer Supergoop SPF 30 sunscreen serum Evening: Clinique Take the day off balm + flannel Caudalie Vinoperfect Radiance serum Occasionally: Hydraluron serum Tata Harper Repleneshing Nutrient Complex as face oil + eye serum Origins Night-A-Mins cream Also, I exfoliate a couple of times a week with Dermadoctor Wrinkle Revenge Cleanser with 12% glycolic acid. Is this not enough? Also, masks include Origins Charcoal mask, Drink Up intensive mask, Sephora Pearl Brightening Mask. Looking forward to suggestions, please!
Hi Everyone! So, I have a wedding to attend this weekend. I recently went tanning a few times to get some color before. (I know it's not good) and it has caused my oil/combo skin to be a bit more dry in some places. Well here is why I need your help! I have been looking so dry on my cheeks and chin under my makeup. While my T-Zone is still on the oily side! What will help me ASAP. I started using, The Regimen Kit Combination/Oily, by Mario Badescu last night. I used a night cream moisturizer last night by this brand also called Seaweed Night Cream to help get moisture into my skin, it felt somewhat better. BUT when I put on my marc jacobs foundation and make up for ever smoothing primer this morning I felt like you could still see the dryness on my cheek and unevenness. & I am still unsure of a primer. I haven't found my HG! I have acne marks in my skin and indents on my cheeks/forehead that causes it not too look very smooth. I hope I can find some products that I will fall in love with! I need to look amazing for the wedding! Thank you in advance!
Spoiler (Highlight to read) Spoiler (Highlight to read) Spoiler (Highlight to read) HI, I have been using Proactiv for about a year now, but realized how ridiculously priced it is. I was paying over $100 for a "three month" supply. Even though the 1 month supply was the just a tad smaller! Anyways, It didn't work amazingly that i thought it was worth it. So I am looking for an alternative and i am willing to pay a pretty penny for something that works. I have Oily, sensitive skin that i usually break out easily. Proactiv, and the Target brand of Apricot scrubs have been the only things in the past that have worked for me. I have been to a dermatologist and had no luck I am open to all suggestions!! *PS i do not know how to get rid of the spoiler tab??
Jeffree Starr has been posting a lot of beautiful colors in his lipstick library recently and I'm getting squirmy for want to purchase one. I'm a huge fan of the Kat Von D ones (I own 11) and was wondering who out there uses Starr's lippies? Some of the colors are quite similar (Underage Red vs. Red Rum, Posh Spice vs. Bow n' Arrow). I've done a search and can't find many swatches side by side to compare the two formulas ( esp. Underage Red and Red Rum). It's gets expensive to ship and if I don't like the color I can't return Jeffree Starr's lipstick, have any of you purchased both? And would it be worth the money to buy both, or would I be buying dupes?
I currently use MAC or Black up Paris with the Skindinavia primer and Finishing spray, but I get even oiler as the days go on. Also, the make up is transferrable. Any suggestions of new brands for a matte finish? I am Afro-Caribbean with Medium dark skin. Someone suggested that I try smashbox.
hello! this is my first year of becoming VIB ROUGE and Im wondering if the epic reward event is annual event. I cant decide whether to grab one within my point range or wait for couple of years to grab something from higher points
