This morning my husband accidentally spilled his coffee all over my vanity...right on my beautiful display do Urban Decay palettes. I learned they are NOT coffee-proof! While that was a might bit disappointing...I actually felt worse for him...he felt terrible! And he says "those were probably expensive....probably like twenty bucks or something." Thinking no comment from me....but I hope they dry out! Yikes!
I discovered lip products with menthol make my lips break out in tiny bumps! why can't my skin just stop being such a sissy and suckit up?? i feel like a little girl in time out during recess while all my other friends play all day errday with their fragrance, parfum, menthol, sulfate-laden products. Whyyy, skin, whyyyyyy??? :'(
I can't remember which thread it was on, but one of y'all mentioned Nordstrom's Rack having makeup and beauty products. And, dang, sure enough mine did!! How'd I NOT know this? Well... this is what just one shelf looked like, and there were about 5 like this: And, why yes that DOES day UD eyeliner for under $4... And I got ALL these polishes!! Ack!
Imagine my surprise when buying Sephora gift cards for the holidays that we are only allowed to buy ONE at a time. Not one per denomination ($10, $25, $40...) but only one gift card per order ! It is super annoying to have to place 5 orders and get 5 confirmation emails. I'm not sure why what the "business sense" is behind this sort of restriction. I hope it's a programming glitch!.
So McDonalds decided to start serving poutine across Canada. I'm pretty sure it was available in the Quebec McDonalds but now it's gonna be across the country. This kinda annoys me even if I don't like McDonalds (probably because I had too much late night McDick's back in college).... I mean they are ruining a national dish!!! If people who never had poutine before decide to have it from McDonalds for the first time... pretty sure they won't like it... ah! marde de clown! My fellow Canucks what do you think? My American friends... never have poutine at McDonalds! THIS IS NOT POUTINE THIS IS POUTINE End of rant!
So while I was taking one of my last finals today, YES, I realized I wasn't touching my face what so ever. I have a horrible habit of touching my face all throughout the day sometimes, which creates some of my acne. Normally during a test I feel around my face and I finally realized what the difference was. When I wear makeup I absolutely will not touch my face because I don't want to mess up my makeup. I am so happy that I realized this so I can stop the spears of the dirt and oil from fingers. Anybody else have this problem?
Confession: I have never been able to wash my face in the sink without making a mess. Water gets all over the counter (and everything on the counter), drips down my arms and off my elbows, goes down my shirt, and soaks the front of my hair. I am not exaggerating. As a result, I have almost exclusively reserved face washing for the shower. But now that I'm trying to take better care of my skin (and wash my face twice a day), the "in the shower" thing doesn't cut it. What am I doing wrong?! Why am I such a mess? Does this happen to anyone else, and have you found any ways to stop the flooding?
Has anyone considered buying $350 worth of gift cards(or any set budget) for 2014 and telling themselves not to go over? after bleeding my wallet dry this holiday, I think I should do it. But am I strong enough to stop after i use up the gc's? That is the question......
1. Since it's becoming a harsh winter around where I live. I would like to cure my cracked, chapped, sometimes bleeding lips. Something for this winter only, or all year around. I have plenty of chapsticks..but I don't know which one is the "perfect" one. I'm getting sick of curing it, then the very next day it's like I've done nothing to it. 2. Is there a product out there to grow my eyebrows even faster? I would like to have full, beautiful eyebrows. After that I want to get it waxed cause I know I have extra hair around that needs to be taken care of. I can't do it right now due to the fact that they are still growing, and semi bald on one. I've plucked my eyebrows almost all my life and I'm fed up with it making one mistake after another , I can't do it nearly as good as a pro does. 3. Also I want my long lashes again, because in my past I did something that makes me regret what I've done, they are still growing, but really fragile. I would like a product that can continue making them grow and also make them stronger. That way I can start wearing mascara again....I miss wearing it.
Thanks to several BT suggestions, I've decided to put together a couple of small care packages for our troops. I was wondering if any of you who have done this have any advice. I've done some research. I found any soldier through Google and learned that you have to have an address of an actual serviceman or woman, but they have volunteers who share things sent to them with the troops. I've learned that food and non-food items should not be shipped together. I know it's best to put everything in ziplock bags and to think of what will make it through the extreme conditions. And small boxes are preferred. Looking at the post office website, it looks like you can fill a priority mail flat rate box, which I have. There's a customs form, but I'm little confused about how I get that form and what I do with it. Anyone who has done this, please give me your advice. Thanks!
I was looking for information of Urban Decay's site and discovered this is part of their product lineup: It's made to be a BI Reward, I tell ya. *ETA: for all you non-watersports types, it's a surfboard
Yay Monday's almost gone, some whimsical and random questions I've always wanted to ask...... 1. Do you ever buy gifts for others but end up chosing something else cuz...*cough* you end up wanting to keep it to yourself? 2. Do you ever get the urge to read or fiddle with things on the toilet? 3. Have you ever told a white lie then later found out it's the truth? 4. Do you ever get that temporary loss of hearing/diminish in hearing when you sneeze or yawn? 5. Do you ever get annoyed by well-meaning gestures of help when....to be honest they don't really help? For me: 1. Yes. No harm done if they didn't know what I originally choose. =P 2. Oh ladies, you have NO idea how many times I've read the ingredients of my shampoo, cleanser and toner. I now know all the ingredients of Clinique toner 2 off top of my head. 3. Actually no, but I thought it would be interesting and I'm curious. 4. Yes. I hate it when ppl are saying something important and I get the urge to yearn/sneeze cuz then I can't hear what they say. =( 5. Ok, pet peeve. I hate it when someone hold the door open for me when I'm miles away, or hold it open awkwardly with their body in the door frame so I have to go through side ways. Seriously, it's ok, I won't hold it against you if you don't hold the door open for me, I promise. And a less annoying but more cute one, I was trying to qualify for Rouge so I was concentrating all my shopping here and I was so happy I ran out of cleanser so I brought some....then later my mom called me to say she saw some other promo and brought me some cleanser, and she was so proud she remembers what I use. lol, aw, so now I've got 5 full size unopened bottle of cleanser...plus various minis and sample packets. >.<

Hey everyone, I was wondering whether it would be possible to return a sheet mask set? I bought the Wei and SKII sheet masks, and didn't really a notice a difference in my skin after using them. My question is whether an associate could deny a return if I've used 2/10 sheet masks in the box? Thanks!
For those of you who use swagbucks, I just wanted to let you all know that sephora gift cards on swagbucks are on sale today until midnight! I am slightly upset because just this past friday, I redeemed for a $15 gift card and missed out on this, but I hope that some of you other ladies can take advantage of this offer!
Hi All, I am looking to purchase a Sonicare brush and was wondering if anyone had any recommendations for the particular models I should consider? The Essence is the cheapest and I was going to get it (for $30 plus tax) but I've read reviews that it gets all moldy inside because toothpaste/water can get into the handle? I don't want to spend too much money on this, but I figure I might as well make a decent investment to begin with instead of having to replace a moldy toothbrush repeatedly.
Tarte is having their F&F sale tomorrow I think, but I got the code to shop it early. 30% off! This is great because they have the mascara sets for those of us on the bandwagon to cycle their mascara more frequently. Not sure if there are any exclusions from the sale - DECFF Have fun!!
Can't wait to get Vice2 today! Hope UPS shows up on time (that's like half an hour away!!!) Naked 3 on Wednesday...come to think of it...presents everyday this week. Yippee...so excited! (Don't worry...the presents aren't all for me!)
I know there's a lot of great stories out there of people being nice and giving during the holiday season, even throughout the year. I just thought we could all share them in this thread. Kinda like a good news thread instead of what we see on TV. It can be something you've done, someone being nice to you or something you saw in the news. Whatever works The one I'm sharing is one from a Canadian airline called WestJet. I just saw it this morning. Watch the video and you'll see what I mean
Hi everyone!!! This is a follow up post to my male celebrity crushes post from a few weeks ago! If you could marry any male celebrity, who would it be? I would marry Henry Cavill. That man is fineeeeeee. But he's 12 years older than me I have him as my phone background and my computer screen saver 3, 2, 1, GO!!!! P.S. I really should be studying for my finals but, I'm too stressed, tired, and don't want to anymore. :/
Assume, for the sake of this discussion, that sunscreen is provided miraculously, and doesn't need to be a concern. My picks: an OCC lip tar (probably Harlot). A single tube will last you FIVEVER, and that's a nice bright color that'll suit the climate. ( http://www.sephora.com/lip-tar-P376506?skuId=14553 10) Urban Decay 24/7 liquid eyeliner in Perversion ( http://www.sephora.com/24-7-waterproof-liquid-eyel iner-P292015?skuId=1348697) A black mascara (I am terrible for going between brands--I have not found any one I'm totally loyal to and in love with enough to list here.) And I would be slathering my face in sunscreen regularly to maintain my deathly pallor fair complexion.
