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: RANDOM THOUGHTS : BEAUTY (PART DEUX)

Today someone liked on of my influenster list and asked me to like her in comment. Although I didn't ask her to like mine, still I don't mind to return the favour. The thing is when I went to her account, it is set on the privacy mode. I can't even see any list or review less like it.

I wonder if she will realize it or just think about me as a inconsiderate b**ch, not that I care, just thinking.

Re: RANDOM THOUGHTS : BEAUTY (PART DEUX)

i know i do this preemptively like....every month, but i'm rather excited about the favorites thread this month ! i'm likely gonna have to edit it down, but i'm feeling particularly enthusiastic about loads of stuff this month !

 

i may have to do/publish it a couple days earlier this month as i'm going out of town, hope that's alright !

Re: RANDOM THOUGHTS : BEAUTY (PART DEUX)

I'm flying tonight and I don't plan on checking a bag. packing all my liquid skincare and makeup in a huge plastic baggie is a mess. and yes that plastic baggie is definitely quart size, no need to double check TSA Smiley Wink

Re: RANDOM THOUGHTS : BEAUTY (PART DEUX)

I had such a nice experience at my Sephora tonight. Everyone was super-helpful - answered questions, sharpened two MUFE eyeliner testers that were broken, even thanked me for being Rouge. Plus, I returned several things (with receipts) with no problem at all, even though some were bought quite a while ago and were very slightly used.

 

(As opposed to Ulta, who would only give me a store credit (only good in-store) for the lowest selling price of a BNIB Benefit eyeliner with receipt since it was past the 60 day return period. I'm curious as to when this particular eyeliner (regular price $24) would have been sold for ~$10 because that is what they gave me.)

 

So anyways, I'm feeling happy with Sephora tonight Smiley Happy

Re: RANDOM THOUGHTS : BEAUTY (PART DEUX)

Crap.  I rushed to make an order on Ulta and forgot Ebates Smiley Sad

Re: RANDOM THOUGHTS : BEAUTY (PART DEUX)

Frustrated. On a trip, decided to try out eyeliner samples. Got the Mufe aqua eyes sample, but it's so soft and I forgot to bring my sharpener! Also brought the Marc Jacobs Highliner gel crayon, but that one is dried out. what the heck smh

Re: RANDOM THOUGHTS : BEAUTY (PART DEUX)

Am I the only one who is turned off a product because of the name? Not in the Nars risqué way but simple names that just sound odd to me and make me cringe a little. For example, two very popular, loved products that I just can't get behind are the ABH Glow Kits and some of the Kylie shades that end in the letter K especially Koko K and Candy K. All these products are beautiful, especially the highlighters, but I am not interested in the slightest because the name feels odd for me to say. Glow Kit just sounds very unappealing to me-I think it's because of the addition of the word Kit lol I just realized typing...maybe it's a problem with the letter K lol Smiley Very Happy

Re: RANDOM THOUGHTS : BEAUTY (PART DEUX)

I haven't tried it before, but just purchased Kenra Professional moisturizing shampoo and conditioner from Ulta's liter sale. Hope I like it! If not guess my mom will get more goodies next time she visits.

Re: RANDOM THOUGHTS : BEAUTY (PART DEUX)

I don't have any It Cosmetics but there's something very soothing about watching when it's on sale on QVC. I have it on right now and I'm not really paying attention to it but I like just having it now and looking up every once in a while. For some reason I always like watching when Wen is on sale too. (Don't use/buy Wen either. Just find it very relaxing.)

Re: RANDOM THOUGHTS : BEAUTY (PART DEUX)

I had saved a DS of a Dior mascara I knew I loved already forfeiture use (haven't actually purchased a full size yet). I wanted to use it today and it had dried out!! 😤😭

Re: RANDOM THOUGHTS : BEAUTY (PART DEUX)

When I have carefully applied my face mask and ready to settle in for a lay down to let it work it's magic..

 

My cat decides I'm delicious!

Re: RANDOM THOUGHTS : BEAUTY (PART DEUX)

@njattana Do you use a vitamin C serum at all? I had bumps on my forehead - under the skin, not red at all - and after a few months of using OH Truth Serum every morning they basically disappeared. I'm fairly confident that this is what did the trick because it was the one constant in my skincare routine over that time. It's been over a year now and my skin is still smooth (I also do various peels and exfoliating things every week). Good luck!

Re: RANDOM THOUGHTS : BEAUTY (PART DEUX)

the dennis gross alpha beta peels say something along the lines of "2 minutes to better skin". the instructions say to wait 2 mins between each pad...so you definitely would need more than "2 minutes to better skin" hmmmmm

Re: RANDOM THOUGHTS : BEAUTY (PART DEUX)

Random discovery.. the kabrow freebie eyebrow liner makes excellent base for dark eyeshadow colors when you want to do a smokey eye.

Re: RANDOM THOUGHTS : BEAUTY (PART DEUX)

I really appreciate MAC customer service. I have two saved addresses on their site (one is my home one and the other is my collage one), and about a month ago placed an order for a sale blush while the web site was acting a bit glitchy. It ended up getting sent to my college address instead of my home, and I am home for summer and could not easily get to my college due to distance. In addition to that, my college packaging center only holds items for two weeks before sending it back. I called CS and they were wonderful about agreeing to send me a new one and to wait for my school to send the other one back.
