Petal was the shade that best suited me, which was surprising, as usually I would have grabbed Ivory. But my roommate pointed out that I've gotten slightly darker since I've lived out here. :( I miss being pale.

 

 

Hmmm.. I am between light and medium but more towards light and I am cool toned. Why can't it be more simple to figure out your shade? Lol

Did you or guests have it help w/ oily t zones? Porefessional doesn't help my dang shiny nose lol maybe I need to just stick with the BB cream bandwagon.

That's odd....POREfessional has REALLY helped my oily zone (Most of my skin is dry as paper, though). And I can't say enough good about BB cream. But, yes, one of my friends who usually looks greasy (I'll admit it) looked GREAT with this stuff. It was better coverage than I expected, considering how light it felt on my skin.

Ivory was sometimes even too dark on me. But having been a smoker for ten years, plus living in AZ, I've taken on a tinge more color than I'd like. As far as how cool toned my skin is....well, just look at the pic, you'll see :)

What other campaigns with houseparty have you girls gotten into aside from the Keurig and Benefit ones? 

 

There's two going on right now, but I'm not too interested in them.

5 or 6 years ago I hosted a Sunsilk party. I don't even think Sunsilk is sold anymore is it?! I still have sample packets of it LOL. 3 years ago I hosted a Sauza Tequila party, 2 years ago a Bare Minerals party and this year a Keurig party. I don't apply to many of them because like you said, many don't interest me.

They sent me a margarita pitcher, 12 margarita glasses, a bamboo cutting board (for limes? idk), some drink recipes and a bunch of coupons to go buy free tequila at the store, since I think it might be against the law for them to ship the actual tequila.

I used to do them all the time a few years ago..mi have done Hershey's bliss, Peperidge Farms cookies, a breast cancer awareness party where I got a cd and Better Homes and Gardens cookbook and a few other things, a Playskool toy party I think it was (I have four kids), The Closer party (dumb stuff), Clariol hair coloring party where everyone had own coupon for a free product with lots of hair care samples, Gerber party (baby rice, toddler snacks from their line, this was an awesome one) and I can't remember what else. They weren't as popular back then so it was much easier to get into or I fit their demographics better.

Off topic: One of my favorite beers comes from Utah (Polygamy Porter).

Was it the car one? I think they sent it to everyone. I got it and a few others on here did too. It makes sense for them to send it to everyone or a mass amount of people because alot won't pay the price but some might.

 

It wouldn't have been interesting even if it was free.

If it was free I was just going to do it so I would hopefully get invited to more but oh well. I'm definitely not cashing out that much.

That sounds fun!

 

There's one called Reebok Happy Hour and it says you get to have drinks and snacks and then try out the latest beauty products. It hasn't started yet, but you can be notified when you can sign up to be in it.

 

It seems interesting. I wonder what beauty products you get to try.

That was the only reason I was considering doing it, but everyone says not to do one's you don't like because it takes away a spot from someone who actually would want to be in it and you can give a better review if you wanted it from the start.

Where is that one? All I see is the Blue Bunny Sweet Freedom one.

I think the CarMD one gets redone every few months. I think I've said no to it 2 or 3 times already in the past, although I didn't get invited this round. (would have said no again anyway)

 

I noticed there's a new survey up this morning in case you gals don't check often.  It was to see what grocery stores you shop at.

 

I just looked at my account to see where I was at...my score jumped from a 9.1 to a 9.4 after I finished the grocery survey.  I think I was an 8.something last week, but I just finished out two campaigns, so I think it jumped up after that.

I was invited to the CarMD campaign, too. I said no, since you have to pay and because my brother-in-law is a mechanic and does all our stuff free anyway. I like that they give you a place to comment on your reason for not participating.

I want to say I think I had read that the people who were invited to the XBOX Kinect campaign last year had to pay for shipping and handling to receive their free XBOX360+Kinects.  Don't remember for sure, but that price would have been totally worth it for me, considering we already paid full price on two XBOX 360's and a Kinect.  (although probably not worth it for them since I already own a Kinect!) Not everything that isn't free is something that would get skipped.

Yes, very good example. I agree.

    • Here's my top 5 faves: Morphe Sigma Tom Ford Sonia Kashuk Elf
    • I'm a beginner to makeup and want to build up my brush collection. Can anyone suggest good quality brushes for me? 
    • Exactly! My favourite is this kit: https://www.chelseabeautique.co.uk/products/3d-fiber-lash-kit. My lashes never looked better. If you've never tried 3D Fiber Lash Mascara you definitely should do it.
    • It's now officially autumn, and I am so excited for it. From now on, each day will get a little shorter, more restful, more fun, right? Until December 21, when we can celebrate! My thought will be, as each day gets a little shorter, each day I will use a little more product; my credit card balance will disappear little by little. Each day a little happier, a little more free, is my vision for autumn! I made a little head start. I've already made an extra payment on my credit card (balance $470). Also, I have already used my four Yves Rocher foil packs and one Mary Kay eye shadow card from the list above. I did a bit of cleaning and decorating. I have a cute Halloween decoration that belonged to my mom on my beauty shelf, and I am using my October 2017 Birchbox to store the samples I'm currently using up. It has a design of fall colors.  I'm now going to use up my Dior Capture Youth Serum foil sample. I got it from Sephora. I was looking at the Sephora "3 samples with purchase" page, and I saw a beautiful little pack of Guerlain Orchidee Imperiale eye cream. I always wanted to try it! I decided I needed a replacement of my cotton pads, a necessity, and then I would get the lovely Guerlain sample. I was so excited for it. But when my box came, I was disappointed to find they sent me a Dior sample instead. They also replaced the Nest perfume I had selected with Replica Beach Walk. I guess they ran out of things, which I can well understand, and the samples they sent me are still amazing, but that will teach me to be so greedy for free samples. When I looked at my bag of Shiseido cotton pads, I realized I really have a big bag, and didn't need to replace them yet. Plus I paid shipping for the Sephora cotton pads, when I could have just gone to the supermarket for some. So the Dior sample is a reminder to watch out!  Enough scolding myself; today is a new start, and I'm looking forward to a great autumn. 
    • I have not purchased any this year, as I am on a No Buy. I was always on a quest to find the perfect sub box, the one that would send me an abundance of wonderful items that would match me perfectly, for a low price. Once I found the Holy Grail box, I thought, I'd never have to buy anything, and my money problems would be solved, and I'd have the perfect beauty routine. I thought it would make life so much simpler. But there are so many boxes now, it's confusing to know which to choose. Even if you just get Birchbox, there are so many tempting box upgrades and limited edition boxes and sample choices. Then there is always a letdown when the box does not match expectations, and sends things you don't care for. I don't look at the the spoilers, to avoid temptation. I don't miss the boxes all that much for now.
