Emily commented on the post, Win It! $200 Sephora Gift Card or $100 ULTA Gift Card! 2 days, 8 hours ago

I could replenish my supply of MUFE High Def foundation. I’ve also always really wanted a salon quality blow drier, but I’ve never been able to splurge. Oh, and I would stock up on Zoya polish if I won an Ulta card!

Something about this set just isn’t doing it for me. I bought the Ocho Loco 2 set last year, and the array of colors and quality were fantastic. It was such a nice mix of neutral and interesting colors, and each […]

Emily commented on the post, Hit List: Most Moisturizing Lip Balm 1 month, 2 weeks ago

Jack Black Grapefruit and Ginger is very moisturizing, and I like that it has SPF. It remains slippery on the lips though, and I prefer a lip balm that really soaks in. Burt’s Bees new Coconut Pear balm is the […]

Emily commented on the post, What beauty product do you own but can’t figure out how to use? 2 months, 1 week ago

I have bronzer and highlighter for contouring, but I just don’t know if I’m doing it right. I think I’m just so used to seeing myself without it that I think it looks weird/unnecessary on me. I like to play with […]

Definitely! The weekends are prime time to play with makeup. First of all, I’m in no rush to get anywhere, so there’s plenty of time to try new things. Second, if I’m trying something really different, I like […]

Same! I’d been saving mine for over a year and just picked up the Bare Minerals kit on Friday. Now I only have 300 points… The Bare Minerals kit had a lot of really nice products though. I’m wearing a few of them today!

Was this an Estee Lauder product? If I’m thinking of the right one, I’m pretty sure this product contained retinol, which a lot of people are sensitive to. They discontinued it and replaced it with a product […]

I love Essie’s Geranium (bright orange red). I’m also a big fan of China Glaze’s Champagne Kisses (sparkling gold) for something more neutral. I know it was from their holiday collection, but I love the way it […]

I love doing my makeup, so not a chance! My hair on the other hand… I would definitely have a professional hairstylist tackle my crazy hair everyday.

Emily commented on the post, What kind of samples do you like to receive with an order? 4 months, 3 weeks ago

My personal favorites are mini mascaras. I almost like them better than regular sized ones because the shorter wands give me better application control, and there’s usually enough of the formula to gauge whether […]

Emily commented on the post, Do you finish beauty products regularly? 5 months, 1 week ago

I finish mostly everything except eyeshadow and lipstick. I try to follow the “when to throw away your products” rule within reason. I use up my skincare, lip balm, foundation, and mascara well before the use by […]

Emily commented on the post, Do you find salespeople at the beauty counter helpful? 5 months, 2 weeks ago

I prefer shopping at Sephora as well. The sales associates may not be experts on every single brand they carry, but I love that they give generally unbiased opinions. They could put a whole look together using […]

Emily commented on the post, Do you find salespeople at the beauty counter helpful? 5 months, 2 weeks ago

A lot of factors contribute to how helpful a salesperson or beauty advisor is. I think a lot of it stems back to the training provided by the company they represent. Some companies only hold seminars once a year […]

Emily commented on the post, Rant & Rave: Gift with Purchases 5 months, 3 weeks ago

I agree! It seems, especially with Estee Lauder, that the GWPs are the same season after season. It’s always the same lipstick color choice (Pink Parfait for cool tone or Tiger Eye for warm tone), Advanced Night […]

Emily commented on the post, How often do you buy a product just for the packaging? 8 months, 1 week ago

I think I’m more prone to buy a lotion or body wash with alluring packaging. Even if the product isn’t always 10/10, it still seems like a treat to use because it looks fancy. Products like that make great gifts […]

Hi Christine! I can’t believe I haven’t tried Jack Black Lip Balm yet considering all of the wonderful things you always have to say about it. Have you tried each of the scents? The grapefruit ginger sounds […]
