  1. Honestly I use the ELF foundation brush. Works just fine and is so cheap I'm not worried about replacing it if I need to.
  2. That bag is pretty sweet, please post what they say!
  3. Benefit drives me nuts, between the awkward tint bottles and the cardboard packaging I just can't do it. I'm not paying that much for cardboard.
  4. I did a quick look and couldn't find a thread about this so figured I'd just ask. I'm 100% on the eyeshadow primer band wagon and I like face primer so I was wondering about lip primer. What's the deal with it, is it worth it, and what brand would you recommend? Or is there something else I should be doing to make my lipstick last a little longer.
  5. I'm a huge fan of the ELF primer, it lasts even during summer classes at the Taekwondo school I teach at. If I know I'll be super sweating I seal it with the ELF Lock and Seal kit, which I swear by. I feel like I could go swimming with that combo.
  6. Do you know what brand these are?
  7. I am finally tossing a tinted moisturizer from The Body Shop that someone gifted me after fighting with it for way to long and hating it. I don't even know why I've kept it this long, it makes me oily and I break out so bad after I use it. Also tossing an unflattering lip liner that was also a gift from someone. Tossing gifts makes me feel sooo guilty but I just need to toss them.
  8. I've made it a goal to comment on two other blogs a day, that helps bring a little bit of traffic to my page and I find that by developing a relationship with other bloggers you get more comments on your page.
  9. Wow, I may have to look into these then. I love the ELF eyebrow kit but they don't have the lasting power to survive my job (I'm a Taekwondo Instructor). The espresso looks pretty close to my brow color, I may have to pick one up next month and give it a try.
  10. Two stories: I discovered that nail polish remover, or at least the stuff in the 90's, will eat through carpet. My brand new carpet. A large hole in like the middle of the room. Thank god for leftover bits of carpet, I made a patch and my mother never knew what had happened. Second story is again as a teen I received a bottle of nail polish in my stocking at Christmas time. Took it into the bathroom and as I lifted it up to put it away the WHOLE bottom of the bottle fell off and dumped all that nail polish all over the sink, counter, and my arm. Thank goodness it was a pearly white so it didn't completely ruin the sink but man, that sucked.
  11. Two words: Glitter EVERYWHERE. Why oh why did I listen to Seventeen magazine back in the 90's? I looked like a disco ball for waaaaaay to long.
  12. I got mine from The Container Store, they look fab and were under $30. Amazon has them as well. Why on earth would you pay several hundred dollars for what is basically a plastic box? Maybe I'm just to frugal for that to ever appeal to me
  13. Ooooh I'm also dying to try the Melted dupe lipgloss. I'm dedicating time this weekend to look in a few places that were suggested to me. I've heard: Winco, Walgreens, Kmart, and Rite-Aid have them, but I can neither confirm nor deny they do. I will report back after this weekend.
  14. I hope they do another 500 point reward this month, I'm ready to cancel and I'd hate to lose my points.
  15. Does anybody else wait anxiously for the new Ulta monthly ad to show up in their mail box? Is there a specific date they always come out on? I base my beauty budget on what's on sale each month (LOVE those B1G1 sales!) so the sooner I can get my hands on it the better.
  16. Wow, that's crazy! And am I wrong or is selling fake makeup illegal because of copyright laws?
  17. Working on getting my social media on!

  18. I do a mask about twice a week typically. I love the freeman charcoal and black sugar one so that's a once a week for sure and then I'll do another one depending on what my skin is doing or if I have any special events going on. I picked up a ton of masks when Ulta was doing the B1G1 for freeman masks.
  19. The Boo-Boo concealer from the May Ipsy is my new favorite find. Since I got eaten alive by bugs this weekend I'm super thankful I have it.
  20. I really like the E.L.F brow gel/powder, I use it to help make my brows look neater and more defined. I have dark brows too, so just go lightly at first till you get the level you want
  21. I have a 3 drawer "box" that stores all of my makeup and I keep it on a shelf just out of reach of my 3 year old. It's clear so I can easily see what's in it. I believe I got it at Storables for like $16
  22. Hello, I'm http://BestBeautyformyBuck.Blogspot.com. I've been doing a beauty blog for a few months now so while I don't have a ton of experience I do have some tips. Update on a regular schedule, even if it's just once a week. But pick a day (or days) that you update on and stick to that. Consistency is the key to getting regular readers. I do a mix of product reviews and articles on specific topics, but everything I do is geared towards finding the best deals and not spending $50 on a lipstick that have a $3 dupe. Pick a theme for your blog, it'll help you find topics to write about.
  23. Hello! My beauty blog is http://BestBeautyformyBuck.blogspot.com. It's a few months old but I think it's going well so far, or at least I'm having a blast working on it and seeing my pageview count go up and up!
