Re: Spring Savings Event 2021 Shopping Advice Thread: What’s in Your Basket?

@niki172  Most of Danessa's products are quite versatile, so you'll have fun playing with them. One of my recent favorites is #Danessa Myricks Beauty Illuminating Veil Liquid Highlighter which I didn't expect to love so much. I bought 2 shades last year (or 2 years ago, I dunno, it's all a blur 🤣) but didn't play much with them until this year. A tiny bit of this stuff goes a long way. I love to layer it under cream blushes to make them glowy. They're wonderful under a tinted moisturizer. If I wore cream/liquid foundation, I'd layer this highlighter underneath. Something I haven't tried yet is layering this highlighter under concealer on my undereyes. I have to figure out how best to strategically (and minimally) apply it for the effect I'm after. 

 

Whichever product(s) you choose, I can't wait to hear what you think of them! 

Re: Spring Savings Event 2021 Shopping Advice Thread: What’s in Your Basket?

@WinglessOneNow I have to put MUFE 08 Deep Sea on my list.  After seeing your swatch of 03 Iron Grey, I bought it and love it!  In fact, I wore it today on top of a light copper liquid shadow and it really made my eyes stand  out.  After six hours of being out in the sun and humidity, the eye shadow wore off some but the liner was perfectly intact!  Now if I will just remember to apply it evenly on each eye; guess I should start taking pictures of my face to see what application mistakes I need to remedy. 🙂

Re: Spring Savings Event 2021 Shopping Advice Thread: What’s in Your Basket?

@Ispend2much6  Yay, I'm glad the grey MUFE eyeliner worked out so well for you! I love that these liners do not budge once they've set. And I still hope MUFE will expand the shade range, because I'd love to have a red shade of this liner! Once I have the navy shade, the only one I'll be missing is the copper shade... I forget what it's called... Sienna, I think. And I might even buy that one, though it'd likely be quite subtle on my skin tone. 

 

Photos for application accuracy can be very helpful. I did that once my eyesight started going all wonky, thanks to the magic of aging (that point in life where your vision suddenly switches from myopic to "oh great, I have to hold [page/label/phone/etc.] a full arm length away to read it at all"): I suddenly had trouble applying shadows and liners to my left eye. So I started taking selfies to see where I was making mistakes. That's also when I better honed my left-handed application abilities. (My right hand is dominant, but I can do most things with either hand.) Anyway, if you do it, I hope it helps! 

Re: Spring Savings Event 2021 Shopping Advice Thread: What’s in Your Basket?

@WinglessOne  It did help today.  I was trying to learn how to take a selfie for a zoom meeting place holder photo (or whatever you call it; I'm not very adept at technology,) and I noticed that one eye's liner was much thicker than the other.  It also just happened to be the smaller eyelid of the two, so it was really noticeable in the picture, but not so much in the mirror.  So, yes, I think I will have to regularly do that!

I'm with you about singing the tune about time marching on; I was complaining about my eye issues to my eye doctor (a little head of schedule with developing cataracts) so my eyesight is not as crisp as it used to be.  He flat out told me it was better than being dead.  Never had a doctor be quite that blunt before!

Re: Spring Savings Event 2021 Shopping Advice Thread: What’s in Your Basket?

@WinglessOne  I’m curious about the tatcha powder as well. If I see a GWP with it I’m definitely getting it. I have 3 loose powders currently open on my counter and I just got the LYS Beauty Triple Fix Setting Powder  so I can hopefully do touch ups when I’m out. So far I like it. 

Re: Spring Savings Event 2021 Shopping Advice Thread: What’s in Your Basket?

@ather  I'm surprised there hasn't been a promo DS yet (via Sephora or Tatcha direct) for the Tatcha powder, considering how many there were for Silk Canvas. Hopefully one will pop up for us in the near future. 

 

Glad to hear you’re liking the LYS setting powder so far! I've also considered trying it, but I seem to have better luck with loose setting powders than pressed ones. Even the pressed version of By Terry Hyaluronic Hydra-Powder (which does work well) doesn't live up to the loose version, which is still my fave of all powders. Still, the LYS powder's price point is very tempting. 

Re: Spring Savings Event 2021 Shopping Advice Thread: What’s in Your Basket?

@WinglessOne  I agree. I have so many DS of tatcha. I don’t get why they haven’t done it yet. Tatcha also did a travel size for both of the silk canvas so hopefully they follow suit and do one. I don’t think I would get a full size until I tried it first or am completely out of loose powder. 

I was curious about the LYS and the price point was great. I also like that I can throw it in my bag and do touch ups at work. The weather here doesn’t know what to do so I can either be super oily or dry throughout the day! Also I was expecting this mini size container and it’s way bigger then expected for the price! 

Re: Spring Savings Event 2021 Shopping Advice Thread: What’s in Your Basket?

Omg I can't wait!!!!

 

Any chance the Dyson Air Wrap will come back in stock in time for the sale?

Re: Spring Savings Event 2021 Shopping Advice Thread: What’s in Your Basket?

@Tamara76  I had an email it’s back in stock. Unless it’s sold out again 🤷🏼‍♀️

Re: Spring Savings Event 2021 Shopping Advice Thread: What’s in Your Basket?

Hi @ather  - It's still showing oos for me.  I really hope it comes back in stock for the sale - fingers crossed!💗

Re: Spring Savings Event 2021 Shopping Advice Thread: What’s in Your Basket?

@faeriegirl echoing everyone else here, would love to see a swatch of the Merit! I am trying to decide which one I should pick up later this year. It is such a great blush!!!

Re: Spring Savings Event 2021 Shopping Advice Thread: What’s in Your Basket?

@eshoe @ather @CookieGirl1  I will definitely post a swatch. I am loving the merit raspberry beret  and I think the peach shade will be perfect!

Re: Spring Savings Event 2021 Shopping Advice Thread: What’s in Your Basket?

@faeriegirl  I agree I love the raspberry beret 

Re: Spring Savings Event 2021 Shopping Advice Thread: What’s in Your Basket?

Re: Spring Savings Event 2021 Shopping Advice Thread: What’s in Your Basket?

@Titian06  I think I like it even more than the honey mask!

Re: Spring Savings Event 2021 Shopping Advice Thread: What’s in Your Basket?

@faeriegirl the merit blushes are so great! I may need another shade haha 

Re: Spring Savings Event 2021 Shopping Advice Thread: What’s in Your Basket?

@faeriegirl   I had my eye on that shade of Happikiss.  I'm looking forward to seeing your haul!
