Before I used Buttered Tan - I used one of the Olive's. Let me go look which one.

I *think* it was the Golden Medium. I know I got one of them once, and it was much too green.

I also tried BUff - Beige Neutral. But the best one for me, thus far - has been the Buttered Tan. I think the Golden Medium was okay, though.

If you wanna send me a PM - Ill give you my email and Ill suggest colors for you. Ive done that before for a couple people.

You can always order another sample kit. Thats what I would do, if I were you.

I might have to try that eyelash curler bengalbelle mentioned. I think subscribing to this thread is going to turn out to be very expensive before it's all over!

Are two-year-olds too young to go to Disney? It depends upon their temperament. One way to find out: take them there. After all, they're only young for a short time. You're sure to enjoy your trip if you plan ahead! AND - don't forget those all-important dining reservations; they fill up so fast it's ridiculous. Have I forgotten anything? Oh yes - I'd advise you to carry a small purse or bag for loose items so you don't lose them on rides. You'll have a great vacation if you follow my advice!

No kidding.

Thankfully we are not on the Budget Board. However, we did mention the ULTA 20% off coupon.... doesnt that count for anything?

Our Sephora and Ulta opened about the same time. I tried Ulta because they often include coupons in the Sunday circular, but it just seemed like a big drugstore to me. It wasn't nearly as nice as Sephora. In fact I couldn't find one thing to use my coupon on.

Maybe ours isn't as nice as others, but I don't see any reason to go back.

I agree with you about ULTA. Sephora is my store of choice, but I'll run to Ulta for salon shampoo and when I need an OPI.

It's still good for some stuff (I found a FAKE BAKE set after Christmas, normally around $50 for FOUR DOLLARS!! When she rang it up I about fainted!)

ALways check ULTA's clearance aisle. They almost always have something worth getting.

I really don't understand why they designed the container that way. Yes, it's pretty but it's very impractical!

I agree with you. SO many products are this way though... makes no sense. Loreal's shadow primer is what I used before Too Faced - and the wand wasnt long enough to get to the bottom. YOu could see like a good quarter inch of stuff in there, you couldnt get to. I finally popped that top thing off (like you suggested) and stuck a thin concealer brush in there. That tube lasted a good month longer.

And you guys know the lipstick trick, right? When you get to the bottom of a lipstick, there is still a LOT left in there. A LOT!!! So, I bought disposable eyeshadow sponge applicators (they look like a little matchbook - sold by like the sponges, and nailfiles, and Sally Hansen area) You can stick one of those into the lipstick (especially when it's a discontinued shade!!! You must get it all out!!!) Anyways...you can apply it with the sponge thing, stick it into the lipstick and twirl it back down like you are closing it - and it will fit in the tube.

So I have decided to try going back to lipstick. I haven't worn it in ages. I have fairly big lips so I always feel really obvious when I wear it but my new boss wore RED the other day and it got me itching to get back into it. So today at Target I bought:

Revlon "Cherries in the Snow"

Maybelline Volume XL "Born With It"

And

Covergirl Outlast Lipstain "Bit of Blossom"

I wanted all different kinds and colors to give me an idea what I like and don't like since its been years since I wore lipstick.

And I know its not makeup but I also bought some of the Smooth away pads that you use to buff the hair off of your legs. I freaking LOVE them!!

I use buttered tan too but this past re-order I got a sample of one of the olive shades. Not sure which one...Light olive I think. I haven't tried it yet though.

CR do they let you use the 20 percent on things like Lash Injection? I thought it was just the drug store brands. I hate my ULTA. Once I was there and about to purchase 140 worth of product. I did not have my coupon and asked if I could have the coupon from the circular on the counter. The idiot manager said no. So he let me walk out on a 140 order just to save himself a crummy 3.50. I am trying not making a genralization but what the heck is a guy who is straight managing a make up store for anyway??? What the heck does he even know about make up? He wears an Ulta shirt that is a mess and not in a stylized way. So I now boycott ULTA BUT maybe I can swollow my pride just this once for the Lash Injection. I swore I would never return.

The cosmetics companies do it on purpose, it makes you think you need more, kind of like planned obselescence.

I just wanted to comment on Make Up for Ever. I have the concelier and it is just okay. As a matter of fact I forgot I had it until I looked at this thread. I also have the pan of conceilers that range from purple to flesh tone. I do not really like them all that much either. They are expensive but I think that they are a really hard to apply even with a sponge.

Me too and in keeping with my boycott of Ulta I do not even read them.....well I lie I do read them but then I justify why I do not want any of their make up because I like Sephora better.

Oh by the way I live in MA and they are opening a new Nordstroms here in April. I work with someone whose daughter went to one of the Ma Nordstroms openings this year and she got a ton of make up. She had a dozen different companies make her up and I guess on the store opening they GIVE you what they use. She just went to the LRM and washed her face inbetween. I am definately going when the one near me opens, I will call in sick b/c as Catherine Rose can tell you nothing makes me happier than free make up(of high quality)

What a jack!!!! I would have done the same thing. Wiener.

It used to be no 'high end' stuff, but they changed it. You can get the good brands now, too.

Who needs 20% a $5 lipstick, y'know?? Big whoop!

But if you go - don't you forget your coupon! Mr Wonderful certainly wont let you use his.

YES!!! I love them! I used to use them in college back before they were smooth away. I used to buy them at Wal-Mart for cheap, then all of the sudden they disappeared. Their patent must have run out or something. I loved them. So when I saw Smooth Away I was like I MUST have them!!! When I saw them at Target today I swooped them up!!!

I got some Maybelline Dream Matte Mousse foundation yesterday and tried it this morning (had a coupon). Oh my gosh! It has worked perfectly all day! I have not touched up powder even ONCE all day, no shine, just a smooth natural looking face. It is so silky and the shade even matched. So, hooray! I think the Clinique Perfectly Real makeup was just too creamy and thick, even though it's oil free.

I agree. Sephora is more high end. But (for me anyway) Ulta is closer. And they have the biggest selection of OPI nail color of anywhere I have ever seen. And you all know by now what started me on this make-up kick. I can buy a bottle of OPI and a bottle of polish remover for $7.30 when I use the $3.50 coupon they are always circulating. They have a great selection of salon hair products that I don't see at my sephora either.

Yeah, tell us more about the 20% off coupons! So many of their coupons are so limited. But the 20% ones can be sometimes be really good. I hope it's in the Sunday paper. Maybe they'll email them out (you guys are all on Ulta's email list right?) They had a friends and family a few weeks ago that made me sick 20% off just about everything! I couldn't buy a thing. I don't buy on credit, but man I tell you I was tempted to pull a card out that time.

And Bella I hope you dropped all those products right in front of him! On the counter of course (no need to take it out on the make-up ). That is unreal.
