I am disappointed in Scarlet Ibis Lipstick. I pulled it out for a special occasion (I will not divulge, y'all would rightfully judge me) where I needed to feel like all that, and it was. just. OK.

It is a nice color and consistency, and if I didn't have all these expectations it would have been fine, but I didn't have the UMPH I needed today. I hope they bring back Rocker in the fall. That would have done me right. Waiting for it...

I'm thinking of making some extra money by charging to do makeup- maybe $15 apiece- for local proms. Time to start practicing!

I like MAC lipstick, and I think they're a good value and have a great range of colors, but their "special edition" colors (i.e., short term availability); their "available only in MAC stores or online"; and their mail order return policy are a PIA.
Benzoyl peroxide is not my friend. My skin was bright red today, I looked burnt. It was so bad people were commenting on it.

Also, I wash rinse and repeat with shampoo.

You're a maniac, cl!

A clean freak and maniac!

I don't know if this counts, but my shaving cream can blew up today. I don't shave much in the winter, so a can lasts a while, but I guess this one reacted poorly to the wait: instead of coming out through the spout, it developed a small, sizzling leak at the bottom, out of which oozed a thin, unusable goo, only distantly related to foam.

Now I have one shaved leg, and one kind of shaved leg.

I've been using Retin-A .05% for a few days. We'll see how this goes in 6 weeks or so. My skin is definitely healing a lot faster already and and my skin tone looks more "even."

I am not sure who in this forum first introduced me to NYX cosmetics, but I wish you hadn't - I am becoming addicted to the stuff. I tried some of their clearance items at ULTA and got hooked. Now I am always peeping at BS stores and places like ULTA to see what I have missed. It is shameful.

That being said, my eyes today are courtesyt of their Lake Moss eye shadow trio. So, to that smarmy girl at the MAC counter in Macy's who said "mature" skin should never wear shimmer on the eyes, I say "HMPH!" That is what I have for you my dear lol!

The only carry about half the colors, and even then they are usually sold out of almost all of them. I either wait for a sale at Cherry Culture or order from Ulta online when they have the buy one get one 1/2 price promos. I also recently bought a voucher from totalbeauty.com which was $30 of products for $15 at the NYX website.

And I'm 46 and wear shimmery eyeshadow. It's all in the attitude!

Just terrible. A little baby obsession is what it is.

If you're wearing sunscreen (following all directions - time, reapplication, etc.) and still getting tanned, doesn't that mean it didn't work?

I never cared for his makeup tutorials.

Sally's Beauty, you lie!

I just bought 1.7oz of argan oil for $14.99 at a health food store. I looked at Sally's and GNC first. GNC didn't have it, but Sally's tried to tell me their Moroccan Oil "Treatment" was 100% pure argan oil. Then I looked at the ingredient list and the first one was dimethicone, then there were a bunch of other ingredients and argan was last...
