We swatched Urban Decay's new Naked3(!!) palette to see how the colors looked on different skintones. What do you think?
Do you have a swatch of this palette? Post a pic in the thread below!

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. :/
Thought I'd start a non-makeup thread on those times inside a Sephora store when we've unknowingly been placed on the spot -- and possibly blushing every shade of pink one could imagine. -During a recent trip, the employee who rang me up practically yelled, "You have XXXX points!!! Would you like to redeem anything from our display?" Needless to say, everyone standing around the register turned to look at me, and I could see the wheels turning in their heads as to how much I've spent. Clearly they've missed the memo that 4X points was a few months prior and that I'm a points hoarder. -One pushy (borderline getting on my nerves) MUA asked which UD or YSL eyeshadow I had on, since the color was extremely vibrant and glittery on my eyes. It was neither but, in fact, a L'oreal Infallible. The plus side was that I was able to shop in peace after telling her that Share away, folks!
A while back I posted a thread about products or techniques that have changed your makeup, skincare or hair care. http://community.sephora.com/t5/Off-Topic/Products -and-or-Techniques-that-Changed-Your-Makeup-Skinca ... On weekends I like to try new things, either products or techniques. Today in particular I had numerous epic fails. From one of my shadows shattering in the case (new, too, ugh) to a new BB cream providing zero coverage and actually turning my face red, to the second time this week cascading glitter all over my face from my eye shadow!! LOL I had to use makeup remover to take some stuff off it was so bad. Just wondering if anyone else experiences the same. I do like to change things up, but it doesn't always mean success.
Okay...here's the deal. It's time for me to make room for baby stuff for the new addition coming in April (Yippeee!!!!). I decided to take a look at everything I have but don't use anymore--and I have quite a few things. Most of the things I have and dont' use are because I love the products but my sensative skin won't allow me to use them. Here's my list: Bare Minerals eye shadows in: onyx (liner), mystery, denim, sugar plum and masquerade Buxom shimmer shadows in Beagle and Pug Make Up Forever Aqua Creme Shadows in Aqua Black and Shade 54 Sephora Shadows in midnight kiss, caroline's pride and armelle Bare Minerals Foundation in Fairly Medium, mineral veil and warmth make Up Forever HD Liquid Foundation in N130 (I think that's the sade number--it's a medium/light shade) VS Pro Bronzing Face Primer VS Tinted Moisturizer/Primer Delux Samples of: Sephora pin-up pink lip gloss (still in wrapper) Sephora Instant Moisturizer (never used) Kat Von D Powder Foundation in Medium 54 9Still in wrapper) Smashbox under eye primer (opened, but not used) Products that have been used: boscia clear complexion tonic Sephora Waterproof eye makeup remover Murad exfoliating acne treatment gel and spot treatment Boscia BB cream Fragrances--Full size bottle, most of them barely used: Georgio Armani Acqua di Dioia 1oz bottle and 3.4 oz bottle Ibiza Sol Urban Flowers Paris Urban Flowers London Pur Blanca- Blossom Just Play Philosophy You are Divine Philosophy Love Sweet Love U by Ungaro for her (Four 1.7 oz bottles, still in wrapper)--I love this stuff, but it doesn't love me back :-( Skin So soft Satin Glow Glow Gel (seven 6.7 oz bottle, still sealed) Full Size mark mascara in jet black Few misc eyeshadow colors and lotions Some of the products are used! I know that they are clean and all that...I never use my fingers for dipping into my make-up and I'm not including anything that is not hygenic...like used mascara! And...I'm giving all this away to whoever wants it. If you want it, PM me. but there are a few rules...I'm giving this away because I hope someone can use this stuff. I don't want any trouble and I won't be liable for anything--not that I'm not 100% confident that all these products are perfectly good and all that, but I don't want someone trying to sue me cause one of the lotions made them break out...ok. I'll ship to anywhere in the US, adn I'd like to get this to the post office on Thursday when I go mail out my Christmas presents. I will package everything very carefully and put anything liquid in ziploc bags. But I can't be responsible for any damage that might happen during shipping. I really, seriously just want to give this stuff to someone that can use it, without any trouble. And if there is anything about this post that is against the rules or guidelines, please let me know! I read through them and didn't see anything that would be, but I don't want to be banned from the most awesome forum ever!
Hey girls, I was at the mall today and on my way to Sephora and this young representative for a new brand called ' Orogold Cosmetics ' approached me. The store is very sleek and luxurious and looks like it's catered to high end clientele. She was ' testing ' out some products she recommended for me on my wrist. Then tried to con me into purchasing the products which I said no and would consider coming back. I go to their website and they are selling skincare that is for people who have MEGA BUCKS !. I get that it's 24K gold inside your stuff but selling it in a mall where I live ain't going to fly unless your rich. I'd suggest they go to Yorkville where the most ELITE shop in Toronto. What I found disturbing is that she's trying to say my purchases are going to irratate my skin and that the Amore Pacific stuff isn't as good. I don't care if you got 24K S**T in there I ain't buying it !. PLEASE AVOID THIS BRAND, THEY WILL SCAM YOU AND HARASS YOU !!!
Hi girls! So I ordered quite a few of the $10 steals and I thought it would be fun for us to write up mini review on them for each other. Mine arrived last night, so I've only tried two so far. Eyeko Mascara/Eyeliner (still available) I was SO excited to try the Eyeko Skinny Eyeliner.... and it wasn't very pigmented. Maybe it is a little dry and I need to shake it up (??) and try again tomorrow. I'll report back. I haven't tried the mascara yet but the wand is very unique. http://www.sephora.com/skinny-mini-duo-P377021?sku Id=1470962 Caudalie Hand Cream and Lip Conditioner Duo (sold out- individual links below) I had been wanting to try the lip conditioner and I constantly use hand lotion so this was perfect for me. The lip conditioner is very smooth and smells nice. The hand lotion smells sooooo good (sort of citrusy?) and my hands feel lovely! What do you guys think of your $10 sets? http://www.sephora.com/lip-conditioner-P6034?skuId =241653 http://www.sephora.com/h-nail-cream-P152203?skuId= 941609
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
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
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 yearn? 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. >.<
So every year around this time I start watching Christmas movies. Some I own some I watch on TV. What are some of your favorites Christmas movies? Mine are: Elf A dog named Christmas Santa Claus the movie (this is an old one) Miracle on 34th Street The Santa Clause 1 and 2 On the 2nd day of Christmas (which I can't seem to find anymore) Updated... I forgot too many While You Were Sleeping Die Hard (1, 2, 3... might as well watch all 3 "originals") All I want for Christmas Christmas Vacation Home Alone Christmas with the Kranks The Family Man Toy Story (Favs are 1 and 3) Jingle All The Way. I love Arnold! Looks Who's Talking Now.
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!
Yayyy! I just got it! I set my alarm for 2AM CST, which is the equivalent of 12AM PST. It looks like it was probably up for quite some time, but I can't be sure. Anyway, I was able to order it. YAY! *Edit: It appears that it went live at 12PM CST, according to Sephora's facebook page.*
FYI for BT'ers living around Los Angeles/Orange County area...Stila is having their warehouse sale this saturday 12/14 8-4pm in downtown Los Angeles! brushes from $3, kajal eyeliners for $6 and lots more(up to 80% off)! Just wanna share the news :-)
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!!
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......
Did anyone else get sucked in to Ulta's cyber monday and still not even get a shipping notice? I never order from Ulta but they had some gifts I missed out on or didn't have at Sephora (the $10 Art of Shaving kit for my BIL, a $19 Bare Minerals kit for my SIL) and the free gift looked nice. I ordered just after midnight on sunday night/monday morning and it still says "order processing" and since it's been 5 days the pending charges aren't even on m CC anymore. I know other people are having the same issues because their Facebook page is blowing up and they sent an email out letting everyone know they are experiencing delays. They said it will still be here within 10 business days (which is really 2 weeks) but I am not confident my order will complete or have the free gift (if something is OOS it will mess up my christmas shopping because I thought I was done). I get it's shopping season, but in comparison, all my other holiday orders have been here for a few days. My Sephora CM order that I placed late on Monday got here Wednesday. My giftopia order was only 1 or 2 days behind, which wasn't bad at all. I'm on day 6 with Ulta. Anyone else having holiday shipping woes or get sucked into Ulta? I knew I was a Sephora girl before, but I can say with confidence now that Sephora > Ulta. Plus, Sephora's CS has always been good to me. Ulta doesn't seem to be handling this well.
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.
So I'd like to maintain a board for the Canadian customers. A place where we can share our events, promos, problems etc. I sometimes see deals and info for Canadians and rather then posting a new convo all the time maybe we can just share on this board. I think it would be easier to communicate with each other if we only had one board to follow. - I recently posted that Nail Polish Canada has free shipping on any orders for a limited time. - I forgot to mention that The Bay will be hosting Beauty Gala's this coming week. You have to buy a ticket but out of the 10$ 2 goes to charity and 8 towards your purchase. Some counters give free stuff when you buy the ticket from them. You get your make-up done too at that counter I'm going and very excited about it! EDITED: Anyone interested in getting Tonymoly products you can contact them via their Canadian Facebook page to place an order. 5$ shipping, free over purchases 50$. I think they have a store in Pacific Mall in Markham ON
I'm stumped on ideas for small gifts to buy my kids' teachers. Any teachers out there who could tell me what gifts you love to receive? Any ideas are appreciated! 2 of the teachers are male mid-to-late 20's. 1 female early 20's and 1 female late 30's. edit - My children attend a Lutheran school so Christmas/religious themed gifts would be appropriate.

Dior Addict Lipstick in 454 6. Benefit Creaseless Cream shadow in RSVP and under all this I am wearing Neutrogena Pure and Free Liquid Sunblock SPF 50 So c'mon now...confess!
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!
