  • About Me
    I love meeting new people and decided to register because it seems like a great forum. I've always been obsessed with makeup and skincare (though eyeshadow terrifies me and I can't seem to ever get that right - and yet I keep buying them and have a ton of them b/c I love them so go figure!). I've recently become a mineral makeup addict, which led me to this wonderful site. It's been so informative!

    Feel free to PM me, I love meeting new people!

  • One Interesting Fact About Me
    I'm really not a big fan of chocolate.
  1. That does help thanks I need some new sunscreen soon so this thread has been helpful.
  2. Oh now that I think about it, it is spf 55 that I've used, I haven't bought the shiseido with the new spf60. That's interesting, I haven't read any reviews on the new one. But the spf55 is the best sunscreen I ever used and I've tried a bunch!
  3. I agree with magosienne, I have super oily skin and have never been able to find a moisturizer with spf that doesn't make me an oil slick or cause me problems. Shiseido spf for face (ultimate sun protection lotion spf 60 - and I think they just came out with a lower spf one, I used the 60 since I'm so pale) is expensive but fantastic for oily skin. If you have a sephora near you, you should be able to get a sample of it.
  4. I realize that I was asking the wrong question. Of course none of you will know if it will break me out, I meant to ask if it's likely to break me out Which is what was answered anyway. Thanks so much for the answers, maybe I'll try cerave. That's non comedogenic? I'm super oily in the t zone but insanely dry under my eyes and around my nose and mouth right now. Crazy skin.
  5. So my face has been really dry this winter and yet is still really oily and acne prone. I want to use nivea soft cream (the white tub), but am wondering if it'll break me out? I asked nivea if the cream is non-comedogenic but they basically told me that it's a body cream and hasn't been tested on faces and so they can't tell me if it is or not. Sounds like BS to me. So I'm basically wondering if anybody with acne prone skin has used this without problems and/or if anybody who knows about ingredients can tell me if they'd cause me problems? Here's the ingredients list: Water, Myristyl Alcohol, Mineral Oil, Glycerin, Butylene Glycol, Alcohol Denat, Stearic Acid, Petrolatum, Myristyl Myristate, Glyceryl Stearate, Hydrogenated Cocoglycerides, Dimethicone, Simmondsia Chinensis Seed Oil (Jojoba), Tocopheryl Acetate, Polyglyceryl 2 Caprate, Phenoxyethanol, Lanolin Alcohol, Fragrance, Carbomer, Sodium Hydroxide, Cetyl Phosphate, Methylparaben, Ethylparaben, Propylparaben, Butylparaben, Isobutylparaben Thanks!
  6. I know how you feel.... It's my first christmas without my grandpa and my grandma's now in a nursing home, and my husband is away until mid Jan. We always used to have a huge party at their house on Christmas and it won't be the same this year. Others have had good advice. It's hard when things change we have Christmas without loved ones. All you can do is make the holidays as happy as possible. Your grandma would want you to and I'm sure your mom will be home in time. Hope that your mom's arm heals well!
  7. Originally Posted by katnahat I just colored my hair. I went back to my natural color. My hair was heavily highlighted blond. I did a test with permanent light brown (it is actually a dark color) on one strip of hair and it didn't turn at all. I got the darkest brown and it worked. It even matched my natural color. I did it about two weeks ago. It has already lightened up a LOT. It's still very brown but no where near as dark as it was. So, if your hair is very light it will take a dark color to get it to grab. Semi-permanent or permanent is going to fade. Permanent, of course, less and much slower. I would say my brown has lightened by about 5 shades in a little more than two weeks. I used Preference by Loreal #4 Dark Brown. Thank you so much! I'm not up for the maintenance of perm. color but wanted to make sure that semi-perm. would still be ok. So i guess they're both ok on light hair the only difference is the fading and amount of time that it'll last. Which would be ok with me (if it doesn't last a super long time).
  8. I'm sorry if this has been asked before, I did a search and couldn't find anything that asked this specific question... I know nothing about hair and would love somebody who has such knowledge to help me out So I have naturally dark blond hair and got highlights a couple months ago. I've used clairol natural instincts semi permanent hair color in the past to go brunette with great results. I used a darker color than I was 'supposed' to and got a great brunette color that lasted longer than the 28 washes just lightened gradually but lasted longer because I went darker than I should've according to the box. I'd love to do that again but I'm wondering what happens if you use a dark(ish) semi-permanent color over blond highlights? Will that totally mess things up or would I get the brunette that I'm looking for? Thanks for any help you can give me and sorry for the long winded question!
  9. I received the older version in a swap and I can't get over the texture. It does ball up and won't seem to melt together and kinda clumps up on my eye even if I try to melt it first between my fingers or on my hand. I have to say though that if I take the time and actually get it to melt and work that it works fantastically. I have super duper oily eyelids and UDPP, paints, paint pots, shadow insurance, you name it, none of them work well for me (my eyeshadow is still creased after a couple of hours), and the eyepoxy does work better for me. I've been meaning to try the new version of eyepoxy because supposedly the consistency is better. Just haven't had the chance. Please do let me know if the new version is better.
  10. I found this article from the la times. New study may deal final blow to acne drug Accutane -- latimes.com I think it's strange that allure says accutane is pulled off the market (which I guess it is), but there are generics available which is basically the same thing. Apparently brand name accutane was taken off the market b/c they said they couldn't compete with the generics, not because of the risks and side effects - including the alleged IBS side effects. Cystic acne is terrible though and if it's working for them and a person is under the supervision of a derm I say why not use accutane?
