RANDOM THOUGHTS : BEAUTY (PART DEUX)

welcome back to the junk drawer of random beauty thoughts and musings. it has been nearly a year, so i think it is time for a rew RT thread ! 

 

when i'm doing my makeup in the morning, my dog sometimes throws a fit until i move his food bowl over to where i'm sitting. i'm certainly not the diva in our relationship.

Re: I admit @Brutalitops that it has been a while since I use...

@sonnydee Yeah I definitely prefer this packaging and for the life of me I don't understand the hate it gets. I have packed my safari for a few trips but then I never really end up using it so probably  safer at home 😅

Re: RANDOM THOUGHTS : BEAUTY (PART DEUX)

@sonnydee  I splurged on the ND Gold palette, because I'd never buy it otherwise. Thankfully a nearby store carries her products, so I was able to swatch it first and make sure I liked it. I called it a "safe splurge," which seems perfect for the Rouge reward Smiley Very Happy 

Re: RANDOM THOUGHTS : BEAUTY (PART DEUX)

@sonnydee   Whatever you decide to buy with your gift card, make sure it's something you will absolutely, unequivocally want to keep because you will not be able to return or exchange it.  I keep forgetting that rule about Sephora gift cards.

Re: RANDOM THOUGHTS : BEAUTY (PART DEUX)

@sonnydee Buy yourself something you could never bear to spend your own money on but have been dreaming about.  I don't have any recommendations.  Just enjoy it!

Re: RANDOM THOUGHTS : BEAUTY (PART DEUX)

@sonnydee yay on snagging the reward! I also used it on stuff I have wanted to try but couldn't justify the spend on. Even though the stuff you choose isn't returnable, I've never gotten a mask product I didn't use up all the way, so I felt my two choices (YTTP dream mask and Biossance Glycolic mask) were still relatively "safe". Plus, I ended up falling in love with the Biossance mask, so that was awesome!

 

You could also combine strategies- use the GC/Promo to restock things you know you want and then use the savings to place a separate splurge order 

Re: RANDOM THOUGHTS : BEAUTY (PART DEUX)

Oh I love both those masks!    The yttp for the scent and moisture and the biossance for the results!  @Brutalitops 

true! 😍@Brutalitops glad your reward purchases worked ou...

true! 😍@Brutalitops glad your reward purchases worked out for you. I thought about buying a mask that I love (omorovicza)but dont want to spend my card on it. I want something fun..🤣 it would not be a good idea for me to "try" out a skincare product with this card. My skin is too picky. Thank you for the suggestion!

Re: true! 😍@Brutalitops glad your reward purchases worked ou...

@sonnydee totally get that, skincare just happens to be my go-to vice lol. If you got some new makeup calling your name go for it!

Re: true! 😍@Brutalitops glad your reward purchases worked ou...

@sonnydee  Well, there’s your answer!  You need to get something colorful!!!  Glitter?  

Re: true! 😍@Brutalitops glad your reward purchases worked ou...

@heartsmyface if Pat had a new bigger palette-it would be soooo much easier. 😍i got 2 of the minis she just put out. I'm looking at ND biba (because I love neutrals) or just a couple of things the Givenchy le perfecto in clear, Dior lip glow, or maybe ND camel or I've been wanting another CT brush-the bigger face. I could just save it for UD game of thrones next month....or redeem a 2nd next Tues & get my Omorovicza. Decisions, decisions....

Re: RANDOM THOUGHTS : BEAUTY (PART DEUX)

Congrats @sonnydee ! I tend to use mine on things I’ve always wanted to try, or things I’ve stalked for a while. I know lots of folks use them on things they’ve already tried because items purchased with the rewards are not returnable/refundable. I have the opposite mentality. Smiley Very Happy So if there’s something new-to-you that you’ve been stalking but haven’t convinced yourself to buy, now’s the time! 

@WinglessOne lol🤣👄💄💄💄

@WinglessOne lol🤣👄💄💄💄

@WinglessOne good thing it doesn't expire for 90 days! I'...

@WinglessOne good thing it doesn't expire for 90 days! I'm leaning towards fun..not skincare especially, not new to me skincare. that would not be a good idea with my picky skin & non return able 🤨 thank you for the suggestion!

Re: @WinglessOne good thing it doesn't expire for 90 days! I'...

@sonnydee  My skin’s a fussy toddler or angst-ridden teen most of the time, so I completely understand not wanting to use the reward on skincare. Smiley Happy I do lots (LOTS) of research on products before I buy or obtain samples, and I usually patch test them for weeks before using them all over my face. That’s not nearly as fun as getting a new-to-me lipstick (or 2, or 5), eyeshadow palettes/singles, perfumes (though I don’t usually try perfumes I haven’t smelled in person first), blushes... plenty of non-skincare fun stuff to try! Whatever you get, I hope you enjoy it! 

 

I also have a rouge reward to use. Trying very hard not to blow it all on lipstick. Smiley Very Happy

Re: RANDOM THOUGHTS : BEAUTY (PART DEUX)

@sonnydee  woohoo! Congrats on snagging a great reward! I vote for something fun and new like a new lippie or highlight 😇

yes @gonerogue I'm leaning towards fun! eyeshadow palette...

yes @gonerogue I'm leaning towards fun! eyeshadow palettes are my kind of fun!

Re: RANDOM THOUGHTS : BEAUTY (PART DEUX)

I feel like I post quite a few random thoughts here, but while researching an upcoming trip earlier this week, I stumbled across the process of how argan oil is made. And if you don't know, it's definitely worth a quick Google search, but you may never look at Josie Maran products the same way again (though it won't stop me from buying them). These argan tree-climbing goats are the first part of the traditional process:

Re: RANDOM THOUGHTS : BEAUTY (PART DEUX)

@txcatx cool picture! It's always nice to know process of how the ingredients in your favorite products are made. <333

Re: RANDOM THOUGHTS : BEAUTY (PART DEUX)

@txcatx 🤣 omg, that’s hilarious!  Is essence of goat a thing?  

Re: RANDOM THOUGHTS : BEAUTY (PART DEUX)

Earlier today, I got a super relaxing facial and massage at a spa. Then while walking to my car (which was almost a mile away because of stupid downtown parking), I passed a juice bar and ordered a green smoothie with a CBD oil add-on because CBD is getting banned from restaurants in various cities across the US but is still allowed in mine, and I was curious about the effects. Boy, the rest of the day has been quite the chill experience.

 

And now I'm curious about the cannabis beauty products carried at Sephora.

🤣😂 Nice
