Re: Fill-in-the-blank Pt. 3 ; Yeah, Another One

@ShannonAlexis games are my favourite games!!

 

  • Three products I’m dying to try are………. YTTP's new eye cream, some new shades of MJ Sheer Lip Gel, Hourglass' new liquid liner.
  • My hair is ……………. a nuisance I'd rather not deal with. Haircare is like a negative # on my priority list. I'd shave it all off if I didn't already know my head is oddly shaped.
  • The brand that upsets me the most is……… Jeffree Star because………. I don't understand how it's ok for him to behave the way he does.
  • A brand I haven’t tried yet but an interested in is …………... all the different brands Deciem keeps churning out. With each new brand they come out with I find more things I want to try! It's a pity I only have one face.
  • Something I don’t like about the Beauty Industry is ………. IG'ers and influencers who all look exactly the same. What is happening to individuality?
  • If all makeup production stopped FOREVER, I would stock up on …………… nothing. I think my powder products could last me the rest of my life and I could get by without lipstick. Smiley Very Happy
  • A beauty trick I learned from someone else is ………. to use waterproof mascara to help hold my lash curl (thanks @malday!)
  • My most treasured beauty possession is ………… my Givenchy Kyoto edition lipstick case.
  • When it comes to Limited Edition items, I think …………. there's too much hype, but I'll still buy things if I like them (and then be upset when I can't repurchase them). Fortunately brands (coughBECCAcough) seem to like $$$, so LE isn't really LE anymore and lots of things end up coming back.
  • Brands I will no longer buy from are ………… Too Faced because …………… I miss when they had a sort of vintage vibe. Now everything is way too cutesy for me.
  • Brands I love to buy from are ………. NARS and Suqqu
  • If I was going to give a BT Award it would go to @jemly………… for …………… all of her long and thought out answers, and thought-provoking questionnaires.
  • My heart races when I see………………. blush. Any and all kinds are fair game.  
  • There are too many ……… collaborations with YT'ers, IG people, etc. 
  • There are not enough ……….. base products for people with my undertone.
  • Three words that describe my beauty philosophy are …………. quick, colorful, chameleon
  • My biggest product disappointment was ………… the newer Smashbox eyeshadow primer that comes in different shades. That is literally the worst primer I've ever put on my eyeballz.
  • Something I’m waiting to come back in stock is ……….. the YTTP eye cream and RMS Beauty Champagne Rose luminizer
  • Ingredients I’m cautious of are citrus extracts, pearl and nuts ………. because ……… citrus and pearl give me allergic reactions and my SO is allergic to nuts. All 3 are in more products than you'd think.
  • Tell us about your beauty journey. Where you started, where you are now, and where you want to be in the future! Oh man I don't know, this is a tough question.  I've been wearing makeup on and off since I was 12 or 13.  From the brows I used to draw on with black eyeliner (sooooo bad) to plucking them off to almost nothing at all, I feel like my beauty journey could be summed up through eyebrows.  I still go through phases where I stop wearing makeup for extended periods of time (the last was approximately 4 years ago, and lasted around 1.5 years) but I feel like the act of putting on makeup is a form of self care, in that I am taking a bit of time each day to focus on me. In the future I want to continue to be true to myself and continue to wear whatever makeup I want to wear, regardless of 'the rules'. I don't think any type of product has an age limit, so I will continue to wear my shimmer shadows and glitter for as long as I want to. Smiley Happy

Re: Fill-in-the-blank Pt. 3 ; Yeah, Another One

@Mochapj  I love your hair!  It always looks so great! Totally agree with you on the age limit. Whatever makes you happy right Smiley Wink

Re: Fill-in-the-blank Pt. 3 ; Yeah, Another One

Awww, thanks V!

 

Hair is the thing I always skip when I'm running out of time (which is most of the time!)  If I were wishing for a high tech beauty tool in the future, it would be a machine that would allow me to have any hairstyle without having to do the work to create it Smiley Very Happy

Re: Fill-in-the-blank Pt. 3 ; Yeah, Another One

@Mochapj  hahahaha that would totally be awesome! Smiley Happy

Re: Fill-in-the-blank Pt. 3 ; Yeah, Another One

Amen!  May glitter sprinkle outta our wrinkles at 100!!!

 

And hair care is something I struggle with as well.  I'm generally okay with it being messy as long as my makeup is spot on.  Who's got time to do both?  Time is really just my excuse.

I was just taught for the 20th time how to style my hair by my hairdresser.  Yeah, I'll be needing another lesson.  

Re: Fill-in-the-blank Pt. 3 ; Yeah, Another One

I love these Smiley Happy

Marc Jacobs coconut water (the promo the US just had), UD vice liquid lip toppers, Stila Glitter and Glow all 3 mermaid colors

My hair is:

Boring at the moment

The brand that upsets me the most is/because:

JS/Lime Crime no explanation needed (and Arbonne and companies like it MLM)

A brand I haven’t tried yet but an interested in is:

Deciem and sub brands (order arriving soon) and Okoko

Something I don’t like about the Beauty Industry is:

Proper communication of release dates and LE items vs perm items. The influencers/youtube stars and all their collabs. I also don’t like people hating on each other because of how they look.

If all makeup production stopped FOREVER, I would stock up on:

Everything lol. If I can’t it be black mascara, black liner and Intelligent Nutrient lip balm

A beauty trick I learned from someone else is:

Can't recall right now

My most treasured beauty possession is:

My MAC collection (Shocker! LOL)

When it comes to Limited Edition items, I think:

Buy all the things!

Brands I will no longer buy from are/because:

Maybe Clinique. Most of their products aren’t for me but they do come out with some cute makeup stuff.

Brands I love to buy from are:

MAC, KVD, UD, The Body Deli, Intelligent Nutrients, Omorovicza, I know there is more… I just can’t think lol

If I was going to give a BT Award it would go to/for:

Everyone who participates in the community. I think everyone plays a role in making and keeping this place awesome. Helpful tips/swatches/funnies/pretty things. I think BT has a great group of wonderful women.

My heart races when I see:

A new release (I think we all know this lol)

There are too many:

Neutrals (and youtube stars)

There are not enough:

Edgy / not the norm colors

Always have fun!

My biggest product disappointment was:

Can't think of one at the moment

Something I’m waiting to come back in stock is:

Sephora Holo traincase

Ingredients I’m cautious of are/ because:

Lavender. Pretty sure I react to it.

Tell us about your beauty journey. Where you started, where you are now, and where you want to be in the future!:

I don’t know… I always loved makeup even from a very young age. I think the obsession really started when I discovered MAC and the range of colors. I hope to have great skin like my great grand mother when I’m passed 90... if I live that long Smiley Very Happy

 

Re: Fill-in-the-blank Pt. 3 ; Yeah, Another One

I love doing these! They remind me of the slam books that me and my friends made as kids...And I know, I know...my age is showing lol. 

 

  • Three products I’m dying to try are
  • My hair is: fine...super straight...Wish I had slight waves like my mama!
  • The brand that upsets me the most is: Any brand that isn't cruelty free
  • A brand I haven’t tried yet but an interested in is: Youth To The People
  • Something I don’t like about the Beauty Industry is: The psychological effects it can have on people...Especially the youth.
  • If all makeup production stopped FOREVER, I would stock up on: some sort of translucent mattifying powder or concealer.
  • A beauty trick I learned from someone else is: To apply eyeshadow primer on my eyelids to keep them from getting super greasy. If you're an oily type like I am, and have had oil slip into your eye from your eyelid it is NOT FUN. Shout out to my big sister for the tip! ^_^
  • My most treasured beauty possession is: My La Mer Soft Moisturizing Cream
  • When it comes to Limited Edition items, I think: I'm too lazy to stand in line/wait up all night lol
  • Brands I will no longer buy from are: Any brand that tests on animals, because obvi. 
  • Brands I love to buy from are: Sunday Riley, Tatcha, Peter Thomas Roth

  • My heart races when I see: Puppies and the Ocean

  • My biggest product disappointment was: Hmmmm...There was this hair removal tool I purchased back in like 2007...But I forgot the brand lol
  • Something I’m waiting to come back in stock is: nothing at the moment!
  • Ingredients I’m cautious of are Alcohol, because it can be super drying on the skin.
  • Tell us about your beauty journey. Where you started, where you are now, and where you want to be in the future! I've had problematic skin since high school up until a couple years out of college. I feel pretty comfortable with my skin now, and I do get the random zits here and there, but I have a pretty good skincare routine down and TRY to eat healthier. In the future, I'd like to look like I'm 45 when I'm really 70 lol. In the near future, I'd like to experiment a little more with makeup. Maybe rock a cool nail color or something. We'll see Smiley Wink
Cheers!

Re: Fill-in-the-blank Pt. 3 ; Yeah, Another One

Thank you for making this @ShannonAlexis! Smiley Very Happy

 

Three products I’m dying to try are……….
Philosophy's Pure Grace Summer Surf eau de toilette, Alterna Bamboo Beach Ocean Waves texture spray, and the new Bite Beauty lip pencils!

My hair is...
Blonde and straight. So straight. So so so straight. 

The brand that upsets me the most is... Jeffree Star

because… Ugh. I don't even want to get into it, but I feel like the reasons are obvious.

A brand I haven’t tried yet but an interested in is...  La Mer or Chantecaille

 

Something I don’t like about the Beauty Industry is... this past year it has been all the collabs with subpar quality.

If all makeup production stopped FOREVER, I would stock up on... 
Everything. Smiley Tongue But I think mascara and eyebrow pencils would be at the top of that list.

 

A beauty trick I learned from someone else is...
How to contour to make my face look wider (since I feel like my face is long to begin with, I don't want it to look even longer with the typical contouring).

My most treasured beauty possession is... 

My Tom Ford Honeymoon quad.

When it comes to Limited Edition items, I think... it's annoying. I hate the urgency and feeling of competition that goes along with LE products.

Brands I will no longer buy from are... 

Makeup Geek.

because...
I was really disppointed in their eyeshadows, hate that they don't have a return policy, hate paying shipping fees, and feel like the company isn't very professional.

Brands I love to buy from are...

Nars, Dior, YSL, and Marc Jacobs.

If I was going to give a BT Award it would go to … @veronika23 for always keeping us up to date with the latest beauty releases!

My heart races when I see... new eyeshadow palettes!

There are too many... highlighters. I know, it's blasphemy...but there are so many and I feel like, for the most part, they look way too similar when applied to the face.

There are not enough... cool-toned eyeshadow palettes!

Three words that describe my beauty philosophy are... 

winged liner, always. Smiley Wink

 

My biggest product disappointment was …
KVD Serpentina. I was so excited by the concept of this palette, but it fell so flat for me once it was unveiled.

Something I’m waiting to come back in stock is...
Nars Velvet Matte lip pencil in Dolce Vita.

 

Ingredients I’m cautious of are … alcohol 
because... 
it's so bad for the skin.

Tell us about your beauty journey. Where you started, where you are now, and where you want to be in the future!
I started wearing makeup in highschool, but looking back it was probably overly cakey foundation that was the wrong shade, and too much eyeliner. I don't know when or how I became so obsessed with makeup, but it escalated quickly and I went from wearing no makeup to being a Rouge customer at Sephora within about two years. Smiley Tongue Never looked back! I still think there are things I'd like to get better at, but I am pretty happy with my collection and my application skills at the moment. Smiley Happy

Re: Fill-in-the-blank Pt. 3 ; Yeah, Another One

Thanks @Asche Heart  You know I love those new releases Smiley Very Happy

I so agree with you on the cool-toned palettes and had totally forgotten about the KVD Serpentina. That was a disappointment when it was revealed.

Re: Fill-in-the-blank Pt. 3 ; Yeah, Another One

I almost forgot about the Philosophy Pure Grace Summer Surf.  I'm not a fan of the original Pure Grave, but I've heard this is quite different, very coconut, sunscreen, beachy.  Im adding it to my loves list right now!

Re: Fill-in-the-blank Pt. 3 ; Yeah, Another One

I'm not a fan of Pure Grace either, but anything 'summer' instantly catches my eye! Smiley Tongue I can't wait to try it.

I started wearing make up when I was 13 or 14,I now have a huge stockpile and am hoping in the future to buy less itmes and enjoy what I already own.


 

 

 

 

Re: Fill-in-the-blank Pt. 3 ; Yeah, Another One

@Seymore3   Just out of curiosity. Why did t you return the shadows?

 

I agree that sometimes, staking the LE is more fun than the item itself. I once stalked the Sephora color of the year when it was the purple a few years ago.  Don't get me wrong, I love the blush palette with the highlighter , but I made calls and drove and all for it, and in hindsight it's not un- dupable.  

Re: Fill-in-the-blank Pt. 3 ; Yeah, Another One

@makeupobesessedI figured it would be a hassle to return them since they were already used.I got them at Shoppers and I am not even sure what their return policy is on opened cosmetics,since I have never returned anything.

Re: Fill-in-the-blank Pt. 3 ; Yeah, Another One

Bc, I am waiting on PMs!  lol!

 

Three products I’m dying to try are

1. BOTOX 

2. CT lipsticks/lip pencils

3. Lash Extensions (but, can't commit to refills)


My hair is

-My 4th child!


The brand that upsets me the most is Drunk Elephant  because L-0-V-E the products but they are expensive in Dollar Store containers! I still deal because they make my skin look great.


A brand I haven’t tried yet but an interested in is  Ahhh! Charlotte Tilbury. Her lipsticks look gorgeous!


Something I don’t like about the Beauty Industry is they make false claims and photoshop their 'result ads.'  Lies!!!!!!  All Lies!!!!!


If all makeup production stopped FOREVER, I would stock up on Gucci face powder, Besame lipliners, NARS blush, NARS mascara, MAC eyelash curler, MJ eyeliner, CL lipstick, UD eyeshadow!


A beauty trick I learned from someone else is how to do my own professional mani/pedi on You Tube tutorial video. 


My most treasured beauty possession is sunglasses and earrings, because without make-up, these 2 things alone do a lot to brighten my face!


When it comes to Limited Edition items, I think...Ummm, I don't pay attention.  But, for Christmas I gifted the Bite gold glitter lipgloss to fellow belly dancers.  They tell me how much they love it and I am just like......'it was Limited Edition, use sparingly!'


Brands I will no longer buy from are ………… because …For this.... anything YT/Blogger related turns me off.  I know, the joke is on me because some of those girls are making millions and good for them! Make $!


Brands I love to buy from are equal opportunist here! If it is a GWP, even better!


If I was going to give a BT Award it would go to My husband (in secret)  for eating Clearance meat (in secret).  


My heart races when I see Sephora gift cards at the grocery store! Ummm, what foods can I find on sale so I can 'sneak one' into the grocery bill un-noticed!  lol!


There are too many perfumes that smell ordinary!


There are not enough  gift cards to buy the ENTIRE Christian Louboutin collection!  I sorta want it......just because!!!! I should start a GFM! ;')


Three words that describe my beauty philosophy are

-Buy the good stuff and enjoy it every day.

-Grow out your hair.....keep your nails short.

-Every day start with a bath, Netflix and a drink.

(oops, it said....3 words) lol

 


My biggest product disappointment was PM eyeshadow kits because the containers were Dollar Store and mismatched.  Don't even get me started on that huge CRAYOLA eyeliner thing!  hahahahah! 


Something I’m waiting to come back in stock is my bank account!


Ingredients I’m cautious of are  silicones because expensive hair products should have ZERO silicones! 


Tell us about your beauty journey. Where you started, where you are now, and where you want to be in the future. I have been happy and blessed every step of the way! We are all supposed to look different and I love my tiny flaws.  (the big ones, I changed) 

Re: Fill-in-the-blank Pt. 3 ; Yeah, Another One

Image result for laughing so hard you cry

 

Bank account ahahaha yes!!!
