    Ohhhh, I ordered some sugar pill... I will report back when I get it!

    @YWIR: It's not for everyday but the bright yellow could be used as some of accent or if you wanted to go for the dramatic look. I guess if you used too much, you might end looking like a cheap hooker.

    Does anyone recommend a good facial moisturizer? I tried Neutrogena, but it felt really heavy on my skins and my face started breaking out.

    this is the one I used which I DONT like and DONT recommend.


    If you have any other favorite face care products, please suggest away.

    What type of skin do you have? Also, how sensitive?

    Since there's no dramatic T-zone difference, there's a moisturiser called Gorgeous by Lush. It advertises as being good for all skin types but if there's a dramatic difference in skin zones, I'd recommend two different moisturisers for each zone.

    I tend to stick with products I like rather than waste money/time experimenting and clowning around looking like a clown. :P

    Imagine you were a creeper watching me through a window shower with your binoculars. Here's what you'd find:

    Face:



    Hair:

    Lol, I remember using this when I was 14 years old in Germany, and it makes my hair so glowy. Way better than that Sheer Blonde crap. So now I order it online. :P


    My trademark hair smell. IF you see a random spazzy blonde, sniff her head. If it smells like this, it's me.


    My body wash. It's supposed to be for the face, but whatever. It has carrot and tomato in it. I'M BATHING IN A SALAD.


    For the netherlands and pittsburgh of my body.


    Facial moisturizer, with the spf...


    Mascara


    Eyeliner


    I fuckin love the smell of this stuff.

    Oh ya, deoderant. lmao



    Now you can be sexy like me. :mwah:

    Interesting...you guys wear a lot of makeup. I can't remember the last time I wore eyeshadow, except when I was 12 and went through a blue eyeshadow phase. Prior to that, I was obsessed with liquid, sparkly purple eyeshadow. And when I was 14, I had a weird thing about putting these star things on my eyes. Like this, except not so many, and they were gold.


    (This isn't me, btw.)

    But you guys make makeup so complicated.

    OUCH. I know what product you're talking about. Can you say migraine.

    it's the spf that makes it feel heavy.
    a product with less spf will feel lighter.


    my all time favourite facial sunblock is
    from laroche posay and you
    can get it at most walgreens/drugstores.

    i use this ontop of my more expensive
    moisturizers (i use the melt-in milk: pictured)
    and i've been using this consistently
    for the past year and a half? two years?

    the price isn't bad, $35.50 for the milk (normal/oily skin)
    and $28.90 for the lotion (normal/dry skin)
    one tube lasts me a little over a year.
    and where i live, the sun is always
    always shining.

    if it's damn hot outside and i feel like
    i'm melting, i can wear just the milk
    alone with out moisturizer, but if you
    have drier skin (especially cheeks)
    you might want to go for the lotion.
    (though i found a great moisturizer
    i can wear throughout the year, so i just
    apply the milk on top after i moisturize)

    the first few seconds on your skin it
    may seem a bit greasy, but it's because
    of the spreadibility of the product. you
    only need a little bit. after a min it just
    'melts in' to your skin, high absorbency
    and very light to wear. this is the key
    selling point for me. it doesn't feel
    sunscreeny or greasy. very nice naked
    face feel.



    if you're looking for kinda all in one
    (without doing seperate moisturizer
    and sunblock) solution, they have
    moisturizer with spf, which works great
    too and very light on the skin, but
    you do give up the higher SPF.

    i prefer a higher spf factor because
    i have discolouration on my cheeks
    so opt to use two seperate products.


    $ 31.50

    with all that said, i don't think it's the
    right range of products to use as a
    stand alone, if you have very, very dry
    skin. but i think it's great to use
    on top of your favourite moisturizer.
    (they make moisturizers also, but
    i've never checked them out aside
    wth one pictured above)

    they're kinda more famous for their
    facial / body sunscreens.

    ---shine control

    products like benefit dr feelgood
    can help with the shiny. it's one
    of my favourites.



    or a good face primer will help
    control the oils. choose something
    that has a lotion-y texture and it'll
    feel light. primers with more silicone
    (gives a super smooth finish + fills
    in pores and lines) will feel heavier
    especially in the heat.

    everyday primer i really like
    is benefit's that gal



    i'm actually using the mini 0.25oz tube
    and use it probably 4 out of 7 days
    for the past month. and still have
    some left. i put it on my cheeks where
    i need more coverage and all over the
    t-zone. just little dabs.

    every normal man must be tempted, at times,
    to spit on his hands, hoist the black flag,
    and begin slitting throats.

    oh ! a lot of people like kiehl's abyssine cream ($45)... but it's ehhh for me.
    i just feel with a lot of kiehl's products you already need to have good
    skin? (or very young skin) i dunno... i didn't like it. it smells nice but i
    wouldn't buy the full size (used trial size) and on application it felt nice,
    but then it just makes my fave very greasy... even though i have dry cheeks.

    i wear makeup every weekday, and it is not conducive to makeup
    staying power, it even defies the laws of primer products. my make
    up just falls off, even if i'm not using foundation and just blush...
    all comes off. no likey.



    oh i also have shiseido urban environment spf50 (i like highhhh spf)
    it's about the same price range as the la roche above ($30). this one
    works well, but i use it in colder weather because i feel it's a bit
    more thicker than the milk consistency. i get very dry cheeks when
    the weather is more cold and dry... but honestly i still prefer the
    la roche, only because i really like the moisturizer i'm using, and
    don't mind using a seperate product for sunscreen that is very light.

    so this may be another good alternative if you're looking for
    a more all in one solution.

    Eyebrows: Make your own eyebrow gel with mineral eyeshadow + hair pomade. Dip your brush into the pomade and then into the eyeshadow. Smoosh your brush around in the eyeshadow cap or on a small paper plate to mix the powder into the gel, and then paint your eyebrows. (I keep a stack of small paper plates in my vanity drawer to use as palettes). I use American Crew pomade from the drugstore.

    Skin care: Johnson's baby wash as a facial cleanser is cheap and effective, takes off eye makeup without irritating your eyes. Thayers Witch Hazel Alcohol-Free Rose w/Aloe Vera is a good toner - put it on a cotton pad and go over your face after washing it, for light exfoliation. Japan Health - Squalane Ultra Fine Oil is an excellent moisturizer -- I use it at night. For day, under makeup, I like Bare Escentuals I.D. Barevitamins Skin Rev-Er Upper because it's light and it has mild AHAs.

    Eyeshadow:
    http://www.neimanmarcus.com/store/ca...0095&parentId=
    Dior Beauty 5 Couleurs Lift quints! You get an eyeshadow base, three colors of shadow, a gel liner plus applicators and a magnifying mirror, all in one compact the size of your palm. These blend like a DREAM, A DREAM I TELL YOU! Your dog could swipe these eye shadows on you and they would be perfectly blended, it's like they melt into each other or something. Zero effort for maximum chic. And don't let how they look in the pan fool you -- if you put them on with a fluffy brush, they got on extremely sheer.

    I like Estee Lauder Double Wear foundation applied sparingly and blended fast on top of still-wet moisturizer. It really does last all day and doesn't transfer so if you touch your face and then pick up a piece of paper, you won't leave a makeup swipe on it. It also comes in good colors for pink, WASPy people.

    MAC Blushcreme is my favorite because it blends out so sheer and never looks cakey. Maybelline Dream Mousse is also really nice.

    I love MAC Malt, Quarry, Copperplate, and Vapour for a day look, with MAC Syrup lipstick.

    I like a quick all over swipe with Coty Airspun Translucent face powder on a fiberoptic brush (http://www.essentialbeautysupplies.c...shes-25-1.html) to set and for a more poreless finish.

    I'm also a fan of Rosebud Salve, always have a tin of it in my purse as it works for cuticles and handcream as well as lip balm.

    Sally Beauty Fingerpaints wear like iron if you use their base and top coat as well.

    I like Carol's Daughter Curl Perfecting hair products (although I wish they would tone down the scent), and I use Citre Shine Frizz Anti-Frizz serum as well.
