Ulta is the WORST and is impossible to deal with. I have had an issue with my Ulta account for a while now. Everytime I try to process my payment an error message comes up. I called Ulta's customer service about this problem a couple of time and they did nothing to help. All they said was to check my billing and shipping information and wait 24-48 and try processing the order again. They is nothing wrong with my information. Everything is correct. The problem is with Ulta. They have a horrible system.   I prefer Sephora so much more. They actually help you with the problems you are having.

I've been on a massive Dolce spree lately... I tried their lipsticks and lip glosses and I'm in love!  I also did my normal Kat Von D hoarding as well this month with all the new lippies.  So much so, that I haven't yet did my normal Nars round up.  Is there a particular brand that you have been snatching up lately anytime you have a couple of bucks in your pocket?  What is the brand and how much do you think you spent on your brand addiction?  And what do you love about it?

I'm sooooo excited! I just bought Bobbi Brown's Beauty Manual in Barnes and Noble the other day and loved it. I just happened to take a peek at her actual website and saw that she's got a team of makeup artists that hold workshops. I was thinking...how am I getting to CA or NY for these?!?!? Then I found out it's right at the Bobbi Brown Studio in my State! (NJ) I didn't know this place existed. Just so happens that the Basic Beauty workshop is being help next Friday from 4-8pm. It's $200 ($100 redeemable in product) If any of you are from NJ and have the $, maybe you should come with!! I'm overly excited about this ;-)  Happy Monday <3

I'm loving the concept of using empty Diptyque candle jars for beauty storage -- they look so pretty and classic. However, i'm not really feeling like dropping $30 a candle to do this. Additionally I haven't had great luck with eBay since they are few listings for empty jars. Any recommendations for other places to look online?

Happy WNW BeautyTalk! Today our product writer Kris is back to share his picks for Father's Day.      "Father’s Day is fast approaching and we all know how hard it is to shop for that guy! Here are a few great new items any dad would be proud to get, so break the tie-giving tradition and surprise him with something luxurious and fun that he’ll actually use. It’s just your way of saying, “Thanks, dad!”'   FOREO LUNA™ For Men "This high-tech cleansing tool is made especially for men. It features two settings to cleanse and fight the signs of aging. The deep cleansing pulses leave skin smoother and softer, reducing the chances of razor burn and making dad’s face feel more awake and alive. The lower-frequency antiaging pulses stimulate the skin and reduce the appearance of lines and wrinkles, and who wouldn't want that?"   Acqua Di Parma Collezione Barbiere After Shave Balm "This balm is the bomb! It’s lightweight and fast-absorbing to provide instant relief, plus its alcohol-free formula doesn’t sting going on. Gentle plant extracts help aid skin repair from shaving scrapes, and hyluronic acid provides moisturizing and antiaging benefits. Most importantly it feels great and is unscented, so it doesn't clash with dad’s favorite scent."   Viktor & Rolf Spicebomb Gift Set "Speaking of scents, this gift set from Victor & Rolf features their most popular male fragrance. Bold and spicy, it’s perfect for the sporty dad. This set includes eau de toilette, shower gel, and aftershave balm to complete the experience. Surprise him with something a bit spicy. It might just be good for him."   Do you know what you're gifting your favorite fella(s) on June 15th? Show and Tell!

 I ended up going with my child to the local Women, Family, and Children's Food / Nutrition Classes / Parenting Classes for those who need it and free Womans heathcare/std testing. They also have an apartment complex for single women with children can rent, pro-rated o what they can pay, but to stay there they must be either looking for a job actively or working and are unable to get on their feet. We went there to sign up my Child for WIC ( she is available to get formula coupons until my grandbaby is weaned off the Similac, then they will provide 4 gallons of milk per week for her child until kidergarden age or until my child makes more money. )   ANYWAY - I donated the box I started that contains $118.50 worth of items - Bath and Body Works True Blue Spa Shampoo and a bottle of the matching conditioner: $30.00 , B&BW BLACKBERRY WOODS Triple Moisture Shimmer Lotion : $12.50 8 BOTTLES of "ART DECO" fingernail ART PAINT /Nail Lacquer to paint designs on your nails in may different colors

Hey girls, So today I was on the hunt to get as many foundation samples as I could from brands I am so very curious to try out. I hit 5 out of 6 stores in Toronto and got a small ziploc bag full of samples. I managed to get matched to most of the brands except the Bobbi Brown Long-Wear which I will still have to get them to go match me in as they didn't even put the effort into trying anyway. My worst experience was the Sephora Fairview which I was very disappointed in the application the girl did. It was streaky, patchy and looked so **bleep** gross. I find when I am in need of foundation matches some reps tend to steer you in the direction of products they'd want you to try vs what you'd like to actually check out. All in all I was pretty happy with the outcome. I've also been told I am now going to be VIB Rouge again in 2015 which I am not too impressed with as I didn't get any of the perks they claimed we'd get. Hope all of you are having a great Sunday !

I enjoy participating on this forum. It's FUN!   HOWEVER, since I've been reading a lot more  posts, I'm finding hostile mean rude comments that the threads go on & on exactly like a ganging up group bullying tactic.    I wouldn't be posting this if I didn't see this all over the forum old & new threads. Also, my feelings have been hurt recently by a comment made to me that could have been posted in a tactful way. I'm not perfect. Words may be left out in a post/comment/reply.   Did you know the person who blatantly implied my reply was incorrect actually answered a question someone asked & their answer was 100% Not True---Wrong---Incorrect? Hmmm...interesting. See what I mean?    I started reading comments/replies made by members who specifically point out a person to say they're wrong about the opinion or product. (wrong may not be the exact word used yet always implied with other words)   You can focus on the product/tip/advice/opinion, without using the PERSON. When you do that, it's not about the make-up any longer, it's the human being with feelings/emotions.   Sometimes it's not what's said, it's how it's said/presented. Why must people say things that can hurt another persons feelings? Ignore what you don't like. Written words can always be misunderstood.   Are you here just to insult the person or point out errors? I've seen a  group of same people follow the person they've targeted. If you disapprove of their posts, STOP READING WHAT THEY WRITE!     If you don't like what someone posts, scroll past, ignore them. It seems like the "angry hostile  complainers" are the SAME PEOPLE who literally STALK a specific person(s)...Forum Bullies?  Hunting in Packs? Hmmmm?   STOP READING THEIR POSTS JUST TO POINT OUT WHAT'S NOT TRUE or WRONG ANSWER! You don't need to address the person, quote them. Maybe start a new thread on the topic, write your own opinion.   If someone attacks me in a personal way, I will reply to you in the way you addressed me. It doesn't feel good does it?
