  1. Nice stories, Lee and Siava! I read all of the posts.... very interesting. Nice thread! I've been to: Canada (As an American, hardly worth a mention if you ask me... no offense to Canadians! It works both ways, I guess.) Macedonia (North of Greece) Kosovo (Further North from Greece) Zurich for a couple of days... layover haha Antalya, Turkey Beijing and Shangai, China - Also stopped in a few of the smaller cities between the two. I'll start with the exotic food. China of course was the
  2. turkey and other med countries will be humid only for 3 months during the summer, and that is only if the location is within x-amount of miles by the sea. so i imagine your experience was being on vacation in turkey, hence being by the sea, and being there in the summer. right now the country is under snow.. not so humid. its dry at all other times of the year and always dry in locations not near the sea (desert and mountainous areas, for example). so you agree then, that your acne is less in t
  3. Not all Mediterranean countries are dry and hot. Turkey is dreadfully humid, at least when I was there. I'm European Mediterranean ethnically, and have acne and know plenty of others with it. It's genetic and lifestyle/diet IMO Oh and when I and others have gone back to the old country, our skin tends to clear up. It's when we are in America that we, those who are prone to acne inn the first place, tend to break out. This leads me to believe it's diet. Not necessarily what is eaten, but what'
  4. I used semi-permanent frequently and it never fully came out after 4+ months. My hair dresser was pretty upset with me about it, for some reason. It'll wash out significantly but not completely. In my experience anyway. So, with really fair hair, it would probably be noticeable. With warm, dark or strawberry blonde hair, it probably wouldn't be
  5. It depends on the oils, I'm guessing. Not all oils are bad for our skin. In fact, a few of them are quite beneficial. However, most of the ones in makeup are probably not that great? Not to mention, leaving makeup on your skin for 25 hours is a very bad idea lol. I can't imagine why a company or person would want or need makeup to last that long... The good news is that there are so many foundations that are oil-free so finding a replacement shouldn't be too hard. Better to err on the side of
  6. hair dye doesn't come out, ever. You either have to grow it out, cut it off or cover it with a darker color or bleach the color out and put more color in. Best thing to do at this point is to go to a salon and save your hair from any more damage. Red is one of the faster colors in terms of fading but it'll still be seen. If you want your natural hair color back, it's definitely best to just wait to cut it, or cut it now.

      HEY HON! OMG, yes! So much to catch up on! How are you? =)

  8. I have the same thought..... haha My makeup keeps my face oil-free for longer. I believe since I use Revlon Colorstay which helps to control oil that it gets absorbed. And, like artisdead said (rhyme.), I don't touch my face when I have it on. Now that I'm not in school and lounging at home way more, makeup-free, I keep touching my skin! I do get tiny clogged pores with makeup but I get full-out breakouts when I'm without it.... I need to find solutions to reducing oil when I do not hav
  9. http://iwastesomuchtime.com/on/?i=18140 I don't remember SpongeBob being such a violent show!.... Or, maybe someone just made that up :P. Anyway, I was reading the comments and I learned something about Patrick. His home is a rock, right? He's been living under a rock.... which, metaphorically means, someone is ignorant / out of touch. That's Patrick! I knew it, this show is full of secret meanings. DEEP, secret meanings.

      LOL Spongebob, yeah watching the shows nowadays I wonder if I'd let my kids watch it. I like the one where Patrick and Spongebob adopted a clam or something, hilarious! Patrick at the end, "Let's have another!" too good, too good!

  10. I just came across that John Lennon quotation in your signature a month ago. I absolutely love it. It's a good reminder of what the goal in our lives should truly be - happiness :)

      Aww thanks, Nessa! It's true, right? Makes everything so much easier :) Hope you and Loochi are well!

    Ahh, I see. I didn't really understand that you wanted makeup advice. Honestly, it depends on who you ask. Many guys say they prefer girls not to wear it, they like natural beauty. If your friends are telling you that you need to wear makeup, then they're the ones with a problem, not you! I forgot where but I read something that said females, deep down, don't dress or wear makeup or lose weight to impress men - they do it for other women. Many of us females compare ourselves to each other ins

    I'm sorry - I'm not sure what the point of this thread is. If you feel you're prettier without makeup, then I have no idea why you wear it. Most people here wear it to gain confidence in public / social situations and would rather not wear it if they didn't feel the need. No one expects girls to wear makeup. That's absurd. If you like how you feel without it, then, by all means, don't wear it! I'm sure most of us wish they had that "problem"
  13. Assuming that makeup does clog your pores. If it's worn responsibly, and if your skin has no adverse reaction to that specific makeup, it won't cause acne. Not to mention over-washing can lead to dryness and dryness can lead to your skin producing more oil to compensate for moisture loss. Experimenting, as frustrating as it can be, is key.
  14. I live in Wisconsin, too! Chapped lips seem to be constant problem for me unless I religiously moisturize my lips. Something that seems to be helping is Burt Bee's Ultra Moisturizing lip balm and the wearing vaseline over it to help seal the balm and protect lips from the wind. I do this before bed, before showering and in the morning while I'm getting ready. It stays on pretty long if you don't touch your lips. There was another thread on chapped lips recently, it's a few posts down if
  15. Are your classes over yet? -_-

    1. Hey there, I'm a little tired to reply but I'll be posting in the near future for sure - and it'll probably be lengthy, too. Just wanted to let you know so you wouldn't feel ignored! Finding a good match and applying it well can definitely be a pain in the neck
    2. There was a thread here, it was probably well over a year ago, about an added ingredient in Everyday Minerals that wasn't placed on their label. It might be there now but I stopped using their foundations a while ago so I don't know. I tried finding that thread but had no luck. All I remember is that the unlisted ingredient was some derivative of coconut oil... maybe. I could be wrong on that. While most people had no issues with this change, it could be (and was) an issue for some people with a
    3. Vaseline works well at retaining moisture but I don't think it moisturizes. I could be wrong on that. So many chapsticks have petrolatum. I've tried a lot of these and still my lips would be chapped when I didn't have the chapstick. I think it's because vaseline/aquaphor/petrolatum-based chapsticks only make your lips feel moist without actually moisturizing. They can still be great over oils that are absorbed by the lips as a way of sealing and protecting your lips, especially in windy, col
    4. I'm using Meow cosmetics which has the same ingredients EM used to have when many people on this site loved it (about two years ago and prior to that). I'm not sure if they're in the same proportion but I'm in love with the stuff. They also have a better selection of colors and the colors are organized far better. Anyway, to the OP, if your skin feels dry when you wash it, maybe you can try removing the makeup with some kind of oil. I use extra virgin olive oil followed by a cleanser. But I
    5. Yeah, of course. Everyone's skin is different. If it works for you, that's great. It definitely doesn't for me and I just don't like applying makeup over the oiliness. This brings up the point that people need to experiment and just see what works best for them. I think it's best to try and not reapply, first (speaking to others), just because it decreases the potential of break outs. If it's not necessary to reapply, then don't add more than what is needed to your skin. Hey nessa, I actually u
    6. whoa whoa whoa. I have oily skin and the reason I love colorstay is because it does stay on. Are you all setting it with powder? What kind? If you use less foundation and less powder it actually stays on longer. At least it does for me. The more that is applied the more makeup that mixes with the oils on your face and it slides off because there's a lot on the skin. It gets heavy and slides off. I'm positive girls who wear too much of any makeup (there are some that reply powder thro
    7. ^ wow that's really cool and great news for all those who have wondered how to fill scars! Maaaany threads on that here.
    8. Aunt, my hair soul mate, how have you been? I feel like I don't "see" you anymore ... lol

        zomg typo, just noticed. Auntie Ant.... >_> haha, oops. Ant*

    9. This and all the others who basically said the same thing. It can but it might not. I've only tried VCO and yes I did get clogged pores, but nothing too severe. Others use it and have no problems so it's hard to know definitively. I also get break outs from jojoba seed oil which is highly praised - goes to show, what works for one person might not work for you! I've been using olive oil for a year now as a makeup remover and no issues with that! (Just noticed this is an old thread... oh well lol
    10. That was quite the imaginative lie lol - only it was true!!!! :P
