I walked away from the Cinderella mirror, too. I saw it in the store a few weeks ago. I've been checking online since then to see if my store still has it in stock. It does. That may be a sign for me to get it. It's a nice mirror with a nice heft to it. It doesn't feel cheap and plastic-y at all.

nsfw wasn't available at my local sephora when i was there last - they were out of stock, and unfortunately we can't use the vib discount online up here! i'm going to check another sephora though on my way to visit my parents tomorrow...not sure whether all sephora branches have occ yet or not....

 

i wish we could just compose our own sets of five or something...usually there's at least one colour i'm not super keen on....

Thanks for posting that info. I got a few more last minute Lip Tars from Sephora. One of them was NSFW because I really wanted that color. I was going to wait to get it because I thought it was part of the set. I also got Psycho and Starlet. I have two colors from the Beauty.com set now. I think I'll still get it if it's restocked because it will still be cheaper than buying the other 3 colors individually. I'll probably just gift my extras to my daughter.

 

It looks like OCC's website restocked some colors, but Belladonna and Pageant are gone. Do they just switch out colors from time to time, or have they been discontinued? I would like to take advantage of the restock and get Radiate and Trollop, but I need a makeup time out.

If you sign up on their mailing list, they will send you an email when they decide to discontinue anything.   These colors were not included in the latest email I received.  I think they are just crazy popular. Everyone is wearing Belladonna right now.

 

I have read online that Strumpet and RX make a beautiful purple.  Can anyone with them both mix them and post?  Thanks in advance!

That sounds like a pretty combo. I wish I had RX to show you. That one is on my next-to-buy list.

 

I signed up for their newsletter and also saw the last call link. Those links aren't too obvious to find on their website even though the last call link is on the home page.

I have my Lip Tars from Sephora. I gotta say, I love Sephora's packaging. I like how each Lip Tar comes with its own brush and directions. I also appreciate the much larger and easier to read name labels. I've only tried on Lydia, Hoochie and Anime so far. Each one is very wearable to me. I was surprised with Anime. I was expecting it to be much brighter. It looks more magenta on me.

Girl About Town is exactly the shade that came to mind when I tried on Anime. I was also expecting it to be more like Nylon. It seemed so much brighter in swatces. I'm still happy with it. It just wasn't what I expected.

this sums up my internal dialogue pretty well....!

 

i've been wondering why i can't stop myself, not only from buying makeup, but for wanting so much in the first place! i think i really need to be strategic about any further acquisitions...LOL...

Lol I Know I want Soo much stuff too, if only I could win the lotto, then I wouldn't want so much because I'd be able to buy them lol
post #287 of 1880

I caved. My declaration of no makeup until Black Friday only lasted a few hours. I got Digitalis, RX and Chlorophyll. nocomment.gif

 

I tried on the rest of the Lip Tar colors. I'm very happy with all of them. Grandma and Melange are a lot prettier than I thought they would be. Melange is a pretty neutral peach-brown. Grandma reminds me of a darker and more coral Reel Sexy. Stalker is a gorgeous red and Strumpet is perfection. No regrets!

 

Looks like I can try that Strumpet and RX combo after all, sss215.

post #288 of 1880

The OCC Pro lip tar set is back in stock at sephora.com

 

Not for me, but i know some of you other lovely ladies are looking for it.

I found it's a great help to make an organized inventory of what products i have, along with the month and year each was purchased. That way i can see if i have a lot of a certain color and hold off buying more unless it's something really special. Or if there's a gap that needs to be filled. Or i can see that i accidentally bought multiples of exactly the same item and not make the same mistake a 3rd time - I don't generally get back-ups, because i like a lot of variety in what i wear.

 

Mascaras, for example, are supposed to be tossed after 4 to 6 months. I confess i'm still using one 2-year-old brown-black mascara (a hard to find color), but it also means i rarely buy mascara, because i have a clear idea of what i have. I am not tempted to get every new wonder-mascara that gets written up until i throw out some of the older ones i have.

 

Powder eyeshadows and blushes (hi-liters/bronzers) last for years as long as one uses clean brushes on them. I have some e/s from the 1970s that are still fine, although back then e/s were awfully chalky / talc-y.

 

On the other hand, lipsticks and other creme products go rancid and liquid products (like foundation) go bad. So there's no real use not wearing a beloved lipstick after a year or so of hoarding it in your stash, because you need to get your best wear of it before it spoils. Most liquid products are supposed to be chucked out in a year, although if you keep it in a cool dark place and don't put dirty fingers or brushes into it, it can last a bit longer.

 

With my inventory i can go through my stash and pull out old stuff to wear before it spoils, or toss what's getting rancid or going bad or likely full of bacteria.

Very good advice. I keep a similar inventory list for my makeup. Sadly, it doesn't stop me from purchasing and wanting more makeup. But my will power is nil at this point.

i have an inventory with year of purchase listed, and sometimes year of release if it was a CP or something after the fact.  sadly i haven't used my inventory in the way you're suggesting...but i should! it might also help me if i had a column for shade category.  i know my products by name, but maybe it would help me decide what i should wear on a given day by shade and how soon it's going to go off!

I'm far more Obsessive-Compulsive! I keep everything sorted by color family and mostly by type.

 

For example, i have one box of FUCHSIA, PLUM, PURPLE, LILAC, and VIOLET lip products.

They're sorted into baggies (hey, it ain't pretty but it works for me) :

Baggie 1. - Blue VIOLET and PURPLE and PLUM (dark purple) LIP LINER PENCILS

Baggie 2. - Blue VIOLET and LILAC LIPSTICKS

Baggie 3. - Blue VIOLET and LILAC LIP GLOSSES

Baggie 4. - PALE PALE PURPLE and FUCHSIA LIPSTICKS & LIP COLOR PENCILS

Baggie 5. - PALE PALE PURPLE and FUCHSIA LIP STAINS & LIP GLOSSES

Baggie 6. - PURPLE LIPSTICKS

Baggie 7. - PLUM (dark purple) LIPSTICKS & LIP COLOR PENCILS

Baggie 8. - PURPLE and PLUM (dark purple) LIQUID LIP COLORS & LIP GLOSSES

 
Each baggie holds between 10 & 14 items.
 
I have 3 boxes of lip products and 4 boxes of eye products, all sorted. The face stuff is also sorted, but stored a little differently because of bigger pans and taller bottles.
