OK, here's something that can maybe get me started into perfume again. I have this box of sample fragrances that was like a gift set that I got at a gift exchange. It has 4 bottles all by Este Lauder. It has one called Pure White Linen. Maybe that isn't too floral. Should I try that?

It doesn't sound floral-y. It sounds like it would be pretty fresh and clean smelling.

You should certainly try it!! Let us know if you like it!

I would LOVE to try the bead head liner. We'll talk closer to the time you are going.

You know - dumb blonde is nice - but it's not the deepest conditioner out there. What are you using now?

If it were me - Id be using a leave in, every day. I Love Sebastian Potion 9.

I generally hate all fruity/foody scents, with the exception of citrus-based ones and Pink Sugar. I tend to gravitate toward "clean" or abstract-y kind of fragrances, e.g. Cool Water, The Body Shop's White Musk, stuff like that. I also used to love Om by the Gap, but IINM, they quit making it a while ago. I haven't had to look for it in ages; my mom always used to load up on it when she and my dad went to Orlando & she'd take a side trip to the Gap outlet.

I'm pretty basic when it comes to makeup. LOVE Clinique's Perfectly Real Compact Makeup...love the texture, love the finish, love every single last thing about it. I like to experiment with eye makeup some (products, not overall look). Lately I've been into L'Oreal's Beauty Tubes mascara, though I have to say, I've never received more compliments on my eyes than when I wore the Almay purple mascara that's designed to highlight brown eyes. Even the BF noticed and commented, which is pretty major for him.

I have found almost all Estee scents to be too strong for me. I can like taste them. But, I like florals and light fruity scents so Estee might work for you.

Yea, we talked about that Potion 9 before, but I forgot about it. I do use a leave in and I use Matrix Biolage smoothing formula or something? It just got dry because I started to wash too often. I was stuggling with my curls and that only made it worse! I'm washing 2 times a week now. It will be better again soon. Also it's gotten longer and that seems to make the curls easier to manage.

Hey, I'm not trying to turn the makeup thread into a hair thread. Or did you just want it to be a general beauty thread?

Have you tried the CLEAN line? You might like it.
http://sephora.com/search/search_res...chFinder.jhtml



The Estee Lauder website describes Pure White Linen Light Breeze as:
"Wet Citrus notes of luscious Bergamot, Orange Zest and White Grapefruit combine with Darjeeling Tea, colorful florals and sheer woods. Fragrance Type: Sparkling Citrus Floral."

Reviews: http://www.makeupalley.com/product/s...der/Fragrances



have you guys seen the OPS collection at Sephora? Nail Candy? Do you hear that? That's the Angel's singing *ahhhhhhh*

I dont care. make it whatever you want.


Hair is fun too.

Okay - Biogenol is a REALLY REALLY REALLY good deep conditoner you can use once a week or whatever. REALLY good. It contains protein (same as Potion 9)

Biogenol Ultra Deep Masque

ULTRA-DEEP MASQUE: (deep conditioner) Specially formulated for color-treated hair with the new Phycocorail Color Shield Protection Ingredient System. ULTRA-DEEP MASQUE is an ultra-deep, ultra-nourishing revitalizing spa treatment. Vitamin and vegetable proteins, rebuild, strengthen and restore life. Restructures and energizes as it locks in moisture, body, condition and fabulous shine, to leave your hair healthier than ever before. Contains a natural anti-oxidant to prevent fading. Glycerin-free. Contains no other ingredients that may strip hair color.


http://www.biogenol.us/home.htm#UDM-Cond

Dumb Blonde is good - dont get me wrong, but I wouldnt call it a deep conditioner, or one that could reverse issues with your hair. It's a daily use.

While you are checking that, it also contains Pleasures, Beautiful, and Beyond Paradise. Are any of those less floral? My problem is, you will probably be thinking, why don't I just smell them? They all smell fine to me, the sneezing starts 30 minutes to an hour after I put them on. So I don't know until I try and lately I would just rather not end up having a sneezy day.

I had some of the Pure White Linen and I like it, but not as much as some other scents. DH bought it for me for Christmas last year, even though I had asked for Beautiful Silver. He couldn't remember what I asked for.

I tried the Potion No. 9, even got it at a great sale, but didn't feel like it really did anything special for me.

Any response on eyeshadow primer? That's the one thing I really need to find.

Yay, more makeup junkies!!! I spend way too much money. I can't walk past the MAC store without buying at least one thing I really don't need but have to have!!! (Like one of the Dame Edna palettes last week...)

Someone asked about eyeshadow primer? I use MAC Paints in Bare Canvas. It's the only one I've found that doesn't crease or wear off, and keeps my shadow in place and vibrant. And I do theater so my makeup works HARD If it can make it through two acts of me sweating, I know it's good!

Don't know anything about the eyeshadow primer, I will wait and see the response from others. That is probably another thing I need to be using.

Deep Dark Confession Time:

I have never been to Sephora.

I want to go, but I am always on a tight budget and I look in there when I go past and think "it's probably $45 for one eyeshadow". So I keep on walking. Also, having never been in there, I don't even know where to start? Help me go to Sephora people! Tell me it isn't really that expensive!

I dont have to check those... I know those:

Pleasures - Floral. I have a soft spot in my heart for it though... Ive always liked it.

Beautiful - wicked floral. Flora-o-Rama! And strong!

Beyond Paradise - Watery Floral. This one MIGHT be okay depending on how much floral you can handle. It still has that watery undertone.

I personally love Too Faced. Lots and lots of people love Urban Decay and if youre crunched for money - I like Loreal's decrease.
