  1. Things don't usually run out too fast here...it's one benefit of living in a small town. But I'm at the mall regularly anyway since I do about 75% of my grocery shopping at Target (which is at the mall where I live, not separate). It'll be bizarre having 3 beauty supply stores in the mall! For a place as small as where I live, that's honestly just insanity.
  2. Just got an email saying there was availability for a home study and to check the site to qualify but if the survey didn't show up the study was filled...and I had just checked my account about an hour ago with nothing, and still nothing...so they obviously sent the email after the spots were all filled because I logged in less than a minute after the email was received. That sucks.
  3. I'm currently wearing no polish. I had been really lazy and let my polish chip for awhile, and finally just took it off tonight with the plan of painting them again, but it didn't happen because I decided I didn't want to spend the time since I'm tired and ready to go to bed. I might keep them that way because a new nail salon/spa just opened up and for their grand opening they are offering 50% off all services...so I might go get gel (probably polish, not extensions) since it'll cost about the same as a regular mani but last a lot longer!
  4. So glad I'm not the only one!! At least brown black mascara is pretty much black. If I got straight up brown I would be really unhappy!! But brown eyeliner? (Which I also just got recently from L'Oreal as comp)...unless it's got a shimmer or I do some wicked winging and dark lines...pointless. I can get away with dark purple and navy eyeliner without people even noticing until they look closely and then realize that it's not black for crying out loud!
  5. I too hold on to mascara longer than 3 months. I always have at least 3 open at a time. I know it's hard for L'Oreal to keep track, but I wish they would send more appropriate colors sometimes. I mean, really, I'm a black girl with skin that is quite dark in terms of drugstore makeup. My hair is black, my eyelashes and eyebrows are black, and my eyes are dark brown. Brown makeup doesn't stand out on my skin, and depending on the shade, sometimes doesn't even show up at all.
  6. Got my comp for S14-108 (was that the age guessing one? I don't remember)... - L'Oreal Voluminous Original in Black Brown - L'Oreal Youth Code Texture Perfector Pore Vanisher - Lancome Le Crayon Kohl in Black Ebony I'm really excited about the eyeliner! II got Le Crayon Kohl in a different color as comp earlier this year and I absolutely adore it!!
  7. Cool guys! It's not opening until sometime this fall, so I've still got awhile.
  8. I just found out that my local mall is getting an Ulta! I'm super excited because I know how much you all love that store, and I've never been to one because there has never been one anywhere near me. Woohoo!!
  9. I'm glad I didn't get the Hypnose mascara. I got it once and while it wasn't bad, it also was nothing special at all...like, I maybe used it once or twice before tossing it into my bin of unused cosmetics. Also glad I didn't get brown mascara...my eyelashes are naturally extremely long, curly and BLACK (to the point that people will ask if I'm wearing mascara even when I've got none on)...so brown would be useless to me.
  10. Haha, nice!! I'm such a mascara junkie I don't bother saving them unless it's a repeat one. But if it's different you can bet it is in my rotation right away!! So I guess it's good I always get mascara as comp and to test b/c it's one of those things you can't keep around forever, though I usually stretch the 3 months to 4 or 5 since I rotate so often and clean my brushes often and I have never had any issues *knockonwood* No. Influenster is similar to BzzAgent. You get free stuff to test and review and share experiences about, if you qualify.
  11. I also got my comp! The Comforting Cream Cleanser and Definicils mascara. Both things I'm sure I'll use, although I have many more facial cleansers and mascaras than anyone actually needs! I mean, since I'm in the current mascara study, that's 2 full sized mascaras (both that I actually like -- I know what they both are), and then I've got at least 2 others that are brand spankin' new, and one that is still alive but on its way out. And cleansers? Well, I've gotten more facial cleansers from L'Oreal than anything else, so there are LOTS! I am actually gonna try out the cleanser now since I need to wash my face anyway. Might as well try my new stuff. Oh, and not L'Oreal, but I got the Venus VoxBox from Influenster which is of the new mini Venus Embrace Snap. I'm excited to try that out since it's been ages since I last used a women's razor because I got a freebie of the Schick Hydro (for men) awhile back and got hooked on it because it works super well and never irritates my skin which is pretty dang sensitive...but I used to LIVE for Venus razors. ETA: LOVE the mascara (I used a makeup remover wipe to take my mascara from the study off 1 eye then tried it out) and also LOVE the cleanser! I am very happy with this comp! The mascara is, from my first impressions only, the absolute best I have ever tried...and I'm a mascara whore who generally has no less than 3 different mascaras at any given time. In one quick coat, my lashes were just as long and as full as about 2 coats of the mascara I'm using right now for the study, and then when I tried adding coats, there were practically no clumps at all! The cleanser smells great, a little goes a long way, and it even removes stubborn mascara
  12. I would think you could say...every time I've done a study it's been for a specific color and it asked if I would be willing to use the product in X color (black, soft sable -- what have you). But alright. I guess I'm more open than you are comfortable with, and that's ok.
