Re: The Question Thread 2.0!!!

Hmmm @Asche perhaps try a primer that is more tacky in texture?  I have oily skin so I apply a mattifying primer on top of my sunscreen.  I have also had success with the Josie Maran Skin finishing balm around my nose when that area is dry to prevent skipping in my foundation application.

 

How long after you apply your sunscreen do you then apply primer/foundation?

Re: The Question Thread 2.0!!!

@ElleElleG I guess it's possible, but I have this problem regardless of whether or not I use primer. Maybe it's the sunscreen? I'll try it tomorrow without sunscreen and see if that makes any difference. 

Re: The Question Thread 2.0!!!

Am I losing my mind or is the first page of chatter on the threads now the oldest posts for some of them? Did I dream I saw a way to change that? Not even joking. I have super weird dreams sometimes 😂

Re: The Question Thread 2.0!!!

Does anyone know if they have an allergy/if their skin gets really irritated after using skincare products that contain grape/grapefruit/grape seed? I've found that I break out a bit and get red spots (not necessarily pimples, more like some kind of allergic reaction- skin looks kinda splotchy).

After having trouble with a Neutrogena grapefruit face wash and most Caudalie products, I now actively look at skincare ingredients to see if they have some form of grape in them.

I want to try the Juice Beauty Green Apple Peel Full Strength (the one in the VIBR gwp), but it has grape seed oil in it. Should I steer clear? Has anybody else found that their skin doesn't get along with grape products?

Re: The Question Thread 2.0!!!

Personally no but a friend of mind learned during a recent Sephora trip that she couldn't use items with grape ingredients. 

Re: The Question Thread 2.0!!!

Did anyone else loose a bunch of their "likes" (sorry I don't know if we still call it a hearts or what). I lost over 300 hearts which kinda sucks Smiley Sad.

Re: The Question Thread 2.0!!!

@niki172. The hearts have been alllllll over the place.   I think the default view on the Conversation Main page is a rolling 30 day view (?) .  However, total heart count varies depending on whether you look at your all time hearts on the leaderboard vs your total heart count when you look at all your posts in your profile.   It's totally inconsistent....

Re: The Question Thread 2.0!!!

@niki172 yes! Each time I log on I see that the "top contributors" have less and less hearts. Odd! 

Re: The Question Thread 2.0!!!

@niki172 - that is super weird that you mention that....I know I went down this thread and hearted every post and now, they're "unhearted".  Cat Surprised

Re: The Question Thread 2.0!!!

@Tamara76 @ElleElleG @ZombieMetroAnt - oh good I'm not seeing things Smiley Very Happy. I thought someone mentioned (maybe V?) that threads were disappearing as well, so maybe that's adding to the fluctuation??

Re: The Question Thread 2.0!!!

I am wondering if anyone can recommend an ashy eyebrow pencil. I have hair that my hairstylist would describe as dark ash blonde and I would describe as light/medium brown. I've been using Laura Mercier Ash Blonde but I'm not sure if it's quite dark enough. There's a shade from Hourglass (Soft Brown I think) I was eyeing, but I'm not sure about using that kind of shape.

Re: The Question Thread 2.0!!!

I have Lancome's Mr. Big eyebrow pencil in Chestnut, and I would definitely say it's a cool ashy brown.  It's very soft, so you would need a clear brow gel on top to keep it from moving around.  And, a light hand is definitely needed; in fact, I don't apply it straight from the pencil, but with a separate brush for that reason.  @blueviolet21  Sorry to be stalking you here. Smiley Happy

Re: The Question Thread 2.0!!!

LOL you're not stalking! And thank you so much for the recommendation, I will check it out on the next Nordstrom/Sephora run Smiley Happy @Ispend2much6

Re: The Question Thread 2.0!!!

I am blonde with at time translucent eyebrows and I have been so impressed with the IT Cosmetics Brow Power™ Universal Brow Pencil. When you're pale/blonde, universal is almost always too dark-but this product totally nails it. I also love the Benefit Gimmie Brow Volumizing Fiber Gel in 01 Light. Fills things out, holds shape and is a perfect shade.

Re: The Question Thread 2.0!!!

@blueviolet21, Anastasia Brow Wiz in Taupe might be worth a shot! I have ashy blonde hair and that's the shade I use.

Re: The Question Thread 2.0!!!

Thank you @TopazBeth! For some reason I have never tried it, need to get on that!

Re: The Question Thread 2.0!!!

Anyone heard any buzz on whether there will be the points multiplier event this month as in previous years? I'm getting low on some of my pricier skincare items and would totally hold out if it's happening.

Re: The Question Thread 2.0!!!

Yes!!!! It starts Friday!  4x for Rouge and there is a bag of samples in store only with a $40 buy in.  No closed door event in the U.S., though, this year. Smiley Sad

I seriously believe that my husband hid that flier. I usually always get mail from Sephora.
