Hello, I have a question that maybe you could help me with. I've been into Korean skincare and cosmetics for YEARS now and all of a sudden the US is finally catching on to how amazing these products are. I have been using a 10-12 step Korean skincare routine for a long time and have recently gotten my friends on board. My question is, are there any selling or promoting opportunities available with such products ...similar to Avon, Mary Kay, etc.? I would LOVE to get my hands on a huge bulk order of Korean skincare goodies and help promote and sell the brands. I feel I'd be very successful because of my love and passion for K-beauty! Thank you for taking the time to read this. Roxanne Mori

I am planning to have a revamp done for my parlour. I prefer the cabinets on the wall rather than the normal cabinet furniture. Would like to know more about them from those who have such cabinets in their parlours. Need help with the best custom cabinet makers and the type to go for (walk-in, custom, linen, reach-in) so that I can comfortably stack all the beauty productsand equipments avoiding cluttering. Any suggestions regarding lancaster cabinets and closets
I've never really shopped at Mac Cosmetics before, but Sephora I'm more comfortable. I want to know some differences if any at Mac Cosmetics. If someone who has worked or shopped there, i want your personal feedback. 1. Are customers allowed to try on their products (just to test it out) even if they don't like it afterwards? 2. Do they gladly give you a take home mini sample of a product your interested in? 3. Do they accept returns for products that have been slightly used? 4. Do they have a positive attitude when helping customers with makeup needs (help nicely and be friendly if you want to have more information) ?

Recently I happened to read an article which says that copper in water can become toxic and increase the risk of many health disorders. It dilutes the blood vessels in the skin . I need guidance in this matter because I was planning to do a big revamp for my bathroom. I wanted to get copper or brass faucets from better living. I checked for the site too but couldn't find much info in this regard. Am I too sensitive and ignore such warning?
Okay ladies and gentlepeople, My shaver has given up on me. Called it quits, headed for the non hairy hills...LOL I'm looking for a waterproof electric shaver for the bikini and underarm areas. I'm a dark skin woman with coarse hair. I use a regular razor for my legs BUT I have found an electric shaver works well on the other areas. I'm looking at this as an investment BUT I don't want to spend a ton of $$$. Anyone have any recs?

This may be my most random post. Any good websites or stores you know of that have good Tragus jewelry? Claire's bars are too long and I prefer 4mm or 6mm and something that's good quality. Spencer's etc.. Seem to have body jewelry but I haven't been impressed with Tragus jewelry and I have searched on EBay but I want to ensure that whatever I purchase is surgical Steele. Any places you trust for body jewelry? Thanks! 😀
So Tarte seems to be having this new promo - LEAP DAY $10 off $50 $20 off $75 $30 off $100 Plus free CAD shipping over $25 orders! Now can someone PLEASE tell me if they've ordered from Tarte's site before and were charged duties in Canada?

**I wrote this a while back but it kept saying there was profanity so it took me a while to find the one word that was preventing this from getting posted.** To be totally honest, I really wasn't expecting to actually LIKE Formula X, let alone develop a major crush. I thought that Formula X, being Sephora's in-house nail polish brand, would be equivalent to bad drugstore nail polish. And that I wouldn't waste money on such nonsense. And then, courtesy of Sephora and Formula X and BeautyTalk, I received a mystery package. You guessed it, it was Formula X's The System To Go (with colour shade Alive). I told myself I had to try it because I wanted to be on the anti-hype train. But the opposite sort of happened. For a Xmas mani, I decided on trying out The System with that VIB Rouge Formula X renewal shade from who even knows how long ago. So this review is about everything except the colour in this set. Cleanse: I thought this could be better. The brush was way too small but perfectly sized in all the other bottles. I thought it was essentially nail polish remover. It strips the nail of oils so that your base coat sticks right onto your nails. I could use the bottle of crappy nail polish remover I have sitting around for this instead of spending 13$ on a little polish jar. For the price, I expect to have a large bottle of it. Even my favourite OPI remover costs less. Prime: I actually really liked this. It applied very well to my nails and it dried quickly (and clear). It did a great job of prepping my nail for colour application. The colour caught on to the base really well and wasn't streaky. I'm still wearing my mani but I'm hoping my nails won't be stained when I remove it. I think I like this as much as I love my all-time favourite Essie base coat!!! VIB Rouge renewal colour: So I haven't tried Alive, which came with my set. I went for red because I wanted to have a Xmas vibe going on. The polish applied really well and stuck right onto the base coat with no hassle. It was even pretty darn opaque with just one coat. With two, it was perfect. No streaky mess. No bubbling! Yay! I have to say I really really love the polish. Shine: I usually have very bad experiences with top coats so I wasn't expecting much. I applied two coats just to be sure that it was indeed "fast-drying". Which it actually turned out to be so yay! I didn't wake up with smudges or blanket fluff on my nails!! It sealed in the colour quickly and dried quickly and thoroughly, which is what I need in a so-called fast drying top coat. Also, no bubbles, which is a huge plus. It didn't do any of that weird shrinking of the polish stuff when it dried. I have the perfect mani. My all-time favourite top coat is Essie's Good To Go and this is the first time that any top coat has even come close. I did my nails around 5-6 days ago and I only have slight chipping on the very edge of the nails that isn't visible. My nails still look like I just did them, except for the little bit where my nail has grown out lol. All in all, I quite enjoyed this set a lot more than I thought I would. For some reason, my mother and I just had this impression that Formula X would be awful and we were both so very impressed with the performance of these polishes that we might actually start buying them. The only con is the price point. I can get polishes with the same quality for a lot less. Formula X ranges from 13-18 and I can get Essie for 8-9 and OPI for 10. I just don't think it's feasible unless they have a very unique colour that I can't find elsewhere. The high price is a turn-off for me. As for this set, it could have been a bit cheaper but was still a decent price if you are like me and didn't want to take the full plunge into the sea of Formula X. If you have nothing to lose, get the full-size version of The System because you save a lot more $$$.
I had a bad injury and can't really go to school, and was wondering if anyone knew if this is actually a useful site? Is it sufficient enough to get lets say a job at sephora? Now I am aware that you do not need to be a certified MUA to work at sephora, but will it help, and with other job opportunities as well?
