Same! Their eyes get really wide. It's funny.

Re: Active Point Perks/Rewards #9: The Bigger and Better Edition

The Skin Inc 500 point perk just went live. 

Re: Active Point Perks/Rewards #9: The Bigger and Better Edition

You must have been saving since the day Sephora opened!!!

Re: Active Point Perks/Rewards #9: The Bigger and Better Edition

Here's some swatches of Bobbi Brown Sandwash Pink. And a swatch of the Too Faced gloss. I think both are quite pretty. The BB is a neutral-warm medium pink on me. I don't like the smell of the bullet, but the scent isn't apparent when worn.

Re: Active Point Perks/Rewards #9: The Bigger and Better Edition

Thanks for posting! I was curious about the Bobbi Brown, deciding if I should make an order to get it.

Re: Active Point Perks/Rewards #9: The Bigger and Better Edition

Really excited to get mine now!

Re: Active Point Perks/Rewards #9: The Bigger and Better Edition

Thank you for commenting on the smell! I thought I was crazy!  (Still a possibility)

 

When I smelled the BB it was like.. cilantro.

Re: Active Point Perks/Rewards #9: The Bigger and Better Edition

@Insomniacmuffin,

I love the smell of cilantro (the real thing!)  Smiley Wink

I own BB Sandwash Pink, and I love the color and the lipstick formula.  I don't remember noticing the scent at all when I put it on.  Smiley Happy

Re: Active Point Perks/Rewards #9: The Bigger and Better Edition

@tsavorite Mmm I'm with you there, I love cilantro...

 

I feel like most of my friends have this opinion on cilantro though:

Re: Active Point Perks/Rewards #9: The Bigger and Better Edition

The dislike of cilantro can be linked to genetics. To something like 15% of the population - cilantro tastes like bitter or soap. 

 

Similar in how some people can eat asparagus without issue, whereas others have a smelly bathroom issue later. Some people have the ability to digest the mercaptan found in asparagus, hence the smell, whereas other people cannot - and pass it odorlessly. 

 

Science is fun!

Re: Active Point Perks/Rewards #9: The Bigger and Better Edition

@Insomniacmuffin fun/disgusting asparagus story...

 

A couple years ago my coworkers and I (scientific work environment) got into a, lets call it, heated discussion on the topic. There was disagreement on whether it was the production of the odour or ability to smell it, and we found conflicting scientific reports.

 

Needless to say a few days later we had a potluck of cooked asparagus and had a little test of our own.

 

My non-science friends think a lot of the stories from the science folks' work is weird. We think we're normal. Smiley Very Happy 

Re: Active Point Perks/Rewards #9: The Bigger and Better Edition

@Llgc that is a very cool perspective I had not thought of (olfactory) !!

Re: Active Point Perks/Rewards #9: The Bigger and Better Edition

@Llgc love the science test story. and seriously, your profile pic is CLASSIC next to your comment to @Insomniacmuffin. I think the little guy is grossed out! HAHA

Re: Active Point Perks/Rewards #9: The Bigger and Better Edition

@Insomniacmuffin *raises hand* I'm one of those cilantro people. Dislike for onions also runs in my family (probably a social trait rather than a genetic one though!), so I don't eat pico de gallo or certain sauces with my Mexican food. 

Re: Active Point Perks/Rewards #9: The Bigger and Better Edition

I loveeeeeeee cilantro!

Re: Active Point Perks/Rewards #9: The Bigger and Better Edition

Wow!  I can't wait until mine arrives- super curious as to how it will smell!

JK!  I LOVE cilantro!   Especially in salsa!

Re: Active Point Perks/Rewards #9: The Bigger and Better Edition

Omg love the hair do! We need to take up a collection to buy some hair products to tame his mane! Haha

Re: Active Point Perks/Rewards #9: The Bigger and Better Edition

Thank-you for posting this, I literally made an order (I needed hand cream anyways, they aren't looking so good right now in this weather!) just to get these!

Re: Active Point Perks/Rewards #9: The Bigger and Better Edition

I bought a $1 empty eyeshadow palette so I could get both of these rewards Smiley Happy   (Also because I needed one)

Re: Active Point Perks/Rewards #9: The Bigger and Better Edition

haha! nice!

 

When I do that my order gets cancelled. Boooooooo

Re: Active Point Perks/Rewards #9: The Bigger and Better Edition

i ordered the Consenant organic hand hand cream and some formula x nail polish, i always thought we couldn't redeem any point perks without a $25 (CDN for me) purchase.

 

my hands are disgustingly dry so im really excited to get the hand cream. i purchased it for my brother for christmas and he seems to like it. his hands were all cracked and dry so i have high hopes!
