Beauty Ice Breakers

BIC is the place to talk about beauty!  There are lots of fun threads, from mask to makeup (and even photo A Year of Beauty- Photography Challenge ) challenges all the way to pet paradise.  In my early days, I kinda wanted to talk to everyone, but I didn't know what to talk about, I just knew I loved makeup and had found my people.

With threads like Monthly Favorites: May 2024 Edition! or
Community Favorite Concealers: Tag your Holy Grails!  , Beauty Pet Peeves 2 I feel the most comfortable when chiming in because I can talk about makeup.  I figured, hey, let's open up some discourse amongst ourselves; a thread with getting to know you questions could be kind of fun.  (And, I still get to talk about makeup.)

I'll post a question and a phrase with a blank and change it weekly? periodically. Answer one or both.

Re: Beauty Ice Breakers

@Samtian, that's probably my fave answer re: mascara.

That's not a bad idea, transferring loves.  As a kid, I liked holding toys in store.  My Mom couldn't buy it, but I had the satisfaction of having it for a little bit, even though I had to put it back.

Re: Beauty Ice Breakers

@danielledanielle Lol it's quite sadly the truth about mascara. I did the same as a child, barbies lol. 

Re: Beauty Ice Breakers

@Samtian , yeah! Me too!   Most of the time, it was a Barbie.

Re: Beauty Ice Breakers

@danielledanielle when I put on mascara I always wish for more volume and length. 


The most expensive item on my wishlist is probably Dyson Corrale™ Hair Straightener 


Fun thread!

Re: Beauty Ice Breakers

@greeneyedgirl107  😂😂😂 Yes, mascaras tend to fall short sometimes.....

Re: Beauty Ice Breakers

Very valid mascara wish @greeneyedgirl107 😋

Re: Beauty Ice Breakers

@greeneyedgirl107, that is always the wish.

Ohhhhh Dyson 💓💕💸

Re: Beauty Ice Breakers

When I put on mascara, I always _________




What is the most expensive item on my loves list?


My answer:

When I put on mascara I always tilt my head waaay back.


The most expensive at the moment is KILIAN Paris Love Don't Be Shy Icon Set 

Re: Beauty Ice Breakers

This is such a fun thread @danielledanielle ! I love it! 😃😃😃

When I put on mascara, I always _________ on top of making this face 😜 when applying mascara, I always apply first a coat of waterproof mascara to hold the curl and then several coats of volumizing mascara to get the volume I want. If I applied several coats of waterproof mascara, I would not be able to remove it 😅


What is the most expensive item on my loves list? Well, the most expensive item in my wish list ever was Danessa Myricks Beauty Lightwork Vol. IV: Transcendence Palette - Illuminating Eye & Face Pigments and it is already home! 😁 Now the most expensive I have is StriVectin Contour Restore™ Tightening & Sculpting Moisturizing Face Cream 1.7 oz/ 50 mL I try to be realistic when adding products to my wish list and I only add what I can really afford and justify, not what I would love to buy 😊

Re: Beauty Ice Breakers

Thank you @Saradestin , congrats on getting lightworks IV.  Also, fish face for mascara seems to be the default 🤣

Re: Beauty Ice Breakers

I am ecstatic about this palette @danielledanielle ! 

Re: Beauty Ice Breakers



When I put on mascara, I always feel like I make a weird face or have my mouth open.




What is the most expensive item on my loves list? Dyson Dyson Airwrap™ multi-styler Complete (Nickel/Copper) and Dyson Corrale™ Hair Straightener 

Re: Beauty Ice Breakers

Oh yes @SportyGirly125 ! I am on the “weird face mascara moment club” as well! 

Re: Beauty Ice Breakers

Oooh that Dyson Dyson Airwrap™ Styler Complete Long is so amazing looking @SportyGirly125 . It lives in my dream wish list too!

Re: Beauty Ice Breakers

Heh, @SportyGirly125 a friend of mine posited why do we make the face, and we kind of landed on "to open up that area."  My face shape doesn't really do that when I make the fish face, but if I tilt may head waay back and blink in to the wand, it does the same thing.


Wow, I did not think the Airwrap cost that much 😶

Re: Beauty Ice Breakers

When I put on mascara, I always feel so much better.


The most expensive item on my loves list is Westman Atelier Vital Skincare Complexion Drops Dewy Skin Tint Atelier 0 

Re: Beauty Ice Breakers

I agree with you in the mascara statement @faeriegirl ! My eyes are never done without mascara, such a difference!

Re: Beauty Ice Breakers

Awww, that's kind of nice @faeriegirl 


Westman Atelier looks so luxe

Re: Beauty Ice Breakers

@danielledanielle omg i love this! I wanna play.


When I put on mascara I always have to get every single little baby lash in each corner - tarte tartelette™ tubing mascara Black has a really good wand for this!




The most expensive item on my loves list is the Dr. Lara Devgan Scientific Beauty Vitamin C+B+E Ferulic Serum 1 oz/ 30 mL! Someone recommended it to me awhile back, but I have yet to make the splurge...

Re: Beauty Ice Breakers

Yay @AlexBT !  And you brought tubing tips!

Re: Beauty Ice Breakers

@danielledanielle Not at Sephora, I don't think, but the most expensive item on my wishlist is the YSL custom lip color creator ($299) and all the cartridges ($89/set of three)! It looks like such a fun gadget, though.
