  1. I need some ideas for shopping online for womens/juniors clothing and shoes. What are your favorite online places to shop? I moved overseas and am a little depressed with the shopping here, and I tried a few places I know of already but few offer international shipping to here. Thanks ladies!
  2. Oh I tried that cold cream stuff before. Definately didnt like it, but I spose its useful if you use colorstay or other stuff thats hard to get off. I defintately would wash that stuff off afterwards though. Another tip for eye, jojoba oil. I take a cotton rouned, put a bit of warm water on it, then add a few drops of jojoba oil, smoosh it in to it blends with the water and it takes off all the makeup. Use the reverse clean side to get any residue off. I got my almay wipes, I really like the
  3. Not sure if they sell these anymore but get a Tide Spinbrush. I had one that I got for free and never used it (for clothes), then when I tried to see if it would make a good facebrush I used it and it did a pretty good job. Otherwise lately Im just using a washcloth with my cleanser.
  4. I agree, the one that gives the best example of that is Fafinettex3, she has had some good tutorials and nice style, but lately its been nothing but hauls. C'mon seriously do we have to see everything she buys? And I almost unsubscribed from her too because one subscriber wrote their opinion about how she doesnt have to show the name of a color printed on the package after she both said the name and has it written on several sources (plus..most the time you cant read it anyways?!?!). But instead
  5. Yeah, sometimes I wonder what is soo spectacular about seeing them open a package for the very first time like seeing their initial expression is like witnessing a miracle or something, as if that is supposed to be better than an actual review where they've tried and tested the product?
  6. Ok all you youtubers! I thought I'd create a little poll about youtube in regards to beauty videos. I started watching them quite a long time ago when they were really just starting to become popular and I've just noticed that more and more people are starting their own makeup "Guru" channels, and I have subsequently created quite the subscription list. I love watching particularly talented people work their magic as it amazes me, then you got others posting things like hauls, which I can stan
  7. If you want a non-mineral make up rec and since you said your skin was dry and flaky, I will have to say Almay's Line Smoothing cream foundation in their lightest color in Ivory. Now I think Almay and Revlon might be the same company so if Buff works for you in colorstay it might be the same in Almay, and ivory is lighter if you need. The line smoothing is very natural looking with buildeable coverage as I have noticed, and it has ingredients such as green and white tea, cucumber, aloe, grape se
  8. Generally I dont use any makeup remover before washing my face, I just make sure I rinse first with warm water, but I use almay's line smoothing cream foundation which isnt really heavy so if you use a heavy foundation like colorstay or something, you probably either do a pre-wash with the same cleanser or use some makeup remover wipes, Im planning to get Almay's since they are non-irritating and fragrance free (according to reviews) for my lazy days when I just wanna crash in my bed.
  9. I love the cream for the winter since my complex 15 just doesnt cut it in the -10 to 10 degree temps here. The lotion I use for my body cause I think it absorbs well, although if it were extra dry I'd use the cream. I didnt like how the lotion felt filmy on my face though. If you get the cream, try to get the one that has lactic acid as the end ingredient, thats how I know its not the one where the formula was changed, the walmart off-brand has it and works just as well (and cheaper)
  10. I have long hair and for a while now I've been using this conditioner from Sally's beauty supply, Its the Biotera brand Revitalizing conditioner and I love it because it makes my hair feel soft and easy to comb through. I also like to use some type of leave in treatment just to protect my ends better, right now I use Biolage Hydra-Seal leave in creme but when that's used up I might move to either Redken Anti-snap or Beyond the Zone Split mender (a fav of Pursebuzz's). As far as shampoo goes, I w
  11. Yay a perfume thread! Some of my favorites Flowers by Kenzo 360 degrees by Perry Ellis Lancome Miracle Heavenly by Victorias Secret Insolence by Guerlain (not "My insolence") and one that Im really wanting to try is Amazing Grace by Philosophy because I got a sample of the scented lotion and I LOOved it! I like clean, flowery scents. Sometimes if I put too much Insolense on my neck it doesnt smell the same as when I only put it on my wrists, but its still nice.
  12. I think using it this way is fun, its neat how you can smear it on and flick it back off, it kinda makes waxing more interesting. I hated having to have the wax at the right temperature (not too hot, not too cold) this way you just have to work up the mass to get the right consistancy and your body warmth keeps it just right when you start using it. Yeah if I can be able to make this stuff myself I would be soo happy because omg it would be the absolute cheapest beauty regimen I use. Its just su
  13. Sometimes with thicker hair/follicles its hard to avoid bleeding. It might stop after a few times of waxing because the hair is supposed to grow back more sparse. Not all hair will grow back at the same rate, that happens to me too where some hair will grow back faster than others. Yeah it definately makes you skin soft too! Thats just another reason I love it. I also thinkn it is helping with ingrowns since it exfoliates so nice and with other waxing before I had trouble with them, I think i
  14. Sugaring!!! Has anyone ever tried this before? I know a lot of you have probably used a sugar based wax before (which is also called sugaring) but I've learned that their are two ways to do sugaring. You can either use the sugarwax the traditional way by heating it, applying a thin layer, and removing it with a strip of cloth....or you can do it the OTHER way where you use a wad of the wax at room temp, taffy like and then press it against your skin and flick it off....Ive just learned to use
  15. Well, I ordered my items on the 17th and received them today! So about a week or so for shipping I guess, not bad at all, its normal. I of course was missing the 3 blusher that I ordered, and I emailed them about it so we'll see what kind of customer service they give. I was really pleasantly suprised that I pretty much like everything I ordered. The all over color sticks, eyeshadow and liquid lipsticks are nicely pigmented. I like the eyelash curler but ill have to say that it is a bit hard to
