    Hair Help!!

    For the last two years, I trim my own bangs and I've been trimming my own hair. It's pretty much all the same length. It's healthy. About bra-strap length. It's BORING! I also have this terrible cow lick in the front of my head so side-swept bangs don't really fall right & I really...

    Gel Nails at Home?

    I started getting my nails done again a few months ago, and I LOVE my gels. Not loving the prices, though. These things are amazing ... and amazingly expensive on my college student budget lol. I've been looking into doing them myself at home. Does anyone else do this? What do you use? Where...

    Stila Lipgloss Dupe?

    Soo I fell in love with this Stila lipgloss. It's a Lip Enamel Luxe Gloss in a shade called Giggle, which is the most beautifully opaque hot pink I've ever seen in a lipgloss. Problem? I can't really justify $22 on a lipgloss. Does anyone know of a good dupe? Maybe from NYX or a drugstore...

    Signature Nail Systems?

    So, I did a bunch of research on gel vs acrylic, and no one can really say weather one is better than the other. I decided to FINALLY go get my nails done & asked the tech which SHE thought was better, and she suggested SNS. Which, according to the little brochure, is supposed to be healthier...

    My favorite shadow is LE! Help!

    Purple Cut-Crease

    I looove the cut-crease look, so I tend to do it a lot. I think I'm getting pretty good! Here's from the other day : My face is red? Curse you, sun! & ignore the brows please, I'm growing them out so I can get them properly waxed. In fact, I think I might've forgotten to fill them <.<...

    Makeup For Tattoo Cover-Up?

    I've got 'This too shall pass' on the insides of my wrists and I'm trying to get a job where that's frowned upon. I told them I don't have visible tats, which I probably shouldn't have done, but oh well. It's just done in black, so no colors to hide. I got a watch to cover one side, but that...

    I ordered a bunch of stuff when that 70% off coupon was floating around. On November 30th, to be exact. I got an email on the 7th or 8th of December that my order was shipped, received on the 12th. I feel like this took a really long time, but I'm also really impatient. If I could have just run...

    Gel Nails

    I've been looking into it, I'm really thinking about doing it. My natural nails SUCKS. They aren't weak, but they grow in all ... uneven ... and I can't ever shape them properly, tho I've tried. I just prefer fake nails. Polish stays on longer, too... Anyway, I've been researching and...

    Twilight Makeup

    I don't want to offend anyone here who actually likes Twilight, but ... WTF. welcome to First, they charge more than most of the major brands for packaging. Like -- there's no reason to charge $18 for what they're calling 'staining balm' which reads like it's a tinted...

    Got a Job at LUSH!

    ... At the Florida Mall in Orlando. Sometime at the end of September, I wandered around the mall asking anyone and everyone for applications. I went into LUSH & they had me e-mail in a resume. ( I applied at MAC and made sure my makeup was FLAWLESS when I turned in the app, but the lady was...

    It's been awhile! - Smokey neutral with a RED lip!

    Soo my currently-far-away boyfriend suggested that we take a pic for each other everyday until we get to see each other again, which happens on the 20th! I think it's a *very* cute idea and most of my pictures were sans makeup cos that's how I happened to be at the time. This time, I decided to...

    Matte Black?

    So I have one of the True Romane palettes from Miss Von D [the Beathoven one, to be exact!] and the black broke. I am DEVASTATED. It's the *best* matte black I've had so far! Unfortunately, she doesn't have single eyeshadows and none of the duos include this lovely color... And frankly, I just...
