Yes yes yes to emerald! <3

Yes please <3 can't have too many pretty bright lip colors!

what do you sub to?????

I have gotten Hot Mama by theBalm, Revolution cheek stick, and theBalm Staniac (which I use for cheeks only) from Birchbox, three full sized blushes from Wantable, one from Glossybox, and one from Starlooks!

 

So not a huge NUMBER of blushes for me, but a blush lasts me foreeeeever. I am pretty sure I have never in my life hit pan on one. But I still love getting them, so I would be happy to get another.

  • deep green polish
  • an effing blush(why don't subs pay attention to that???), I'd be good with anything thats not on a sheet!
  • deep deep deep green liner or shadow
  • something gold. they could send a gold glitter liner instead of a green one and give us a green shadow(maybe with tips on how to do a "green makeup look")
  • a lipstick(creme. not shimmer, not sheer, not an effing gloss) that matched the blush(that I'm hoping would be pink, perhaps an intense pink that you need to be light handed when applying)

 

Have you tried Starlooks yet? We got the prettiest shiny light green liner and a blush last month, and their lipsticks are wonderful. :)

I would love:

 

A lipstick or stain that is NOT red, hot pink, or dark pink. I love pinks, but I already have a glossybox full of them! I'd love a nude (I have never had a nude lipstick, believe that or not), a pale pink, a purple, or a berry.

 

A green glittery or shimmery polish. Any glittery polish that is not gold or red, for that matter. Or a duochrome!

 

Colored eyeliners or shadow pencils...greens or aquas or purples!

 

A highlighting powder (I have stick and cream ones, but no powder!)

 

A lip scrub.

 

Eye primer.

 

A good eye cream or moisturizer.

 

A hand cream.

 

Perfume rollerballs.

 

and NO SELF TANNERS OR BRONZERS EVER.

 On the ELF: was just using it as an example! I would hope they would send something a little bit more expensive :)

Although they sent NYX stuff in the past  and not everyone was disappointed. 

 

Hmm - a nice deep Emerald bag with coin  clasp and a golden inside!  I like! How very St. Paddy's Day.

 

I really really hope they do a green eyeliner (like forrest green), I do like the roller ball perfume idea (something like DKNY Delicious - one of my favs).

I also liked the idea of nude color lippie or even a nice berry.  The only blushes I have gotten were The Balm's Hot Mama (BB) and the ones Ipsy sent that on the sheet (which I have yet to really use).

Huge difference between NYX and Elf. Although I love Elf... I wouldn't want to see it in any sub box. I'd rather spend my $3 and choose my own. I didn't get on the list yet... so I may or may not get March. Still haven't decided if I want to. I have way too many subs for my taste currently and I got a free starbox coming. Love stalking your bags though!

you never need sunscreen? You mean you have plenty and don't need any, right? Cuz even if it's not sunny out, the sun's still there and you still need protection from it O.O

I am definitely in the "do not need because I have so much" camp lol. I wear it religiously, and I am too scared of running out, I always have a backup. I actually loved the super goop serum bb sent out, but it is just too expensive for how much of it I use :(

I most definitely prefer Wet N Wild blushes over ELF. If we don't get any sub blushes this month, I'd say to those of you itching for a new blush to try one of the WNW out. I use the mineral ones (for some reason at Rite Aid they are ALWAYS at the dead bottom of the WNW display near the floor... Like theyre hiding them =P) and they are so pretty. Some are semi shimmery though. They are really buildable and so perfect for day.  They're really fine powder that comes out with a sifter lid, then it has a lid that snaps to cover the little holes, and finally a twist lid to keep everything... For so cheap even the packaging is good. I bought every color almost 2 years ago, so I hope they haven't changed the formula. These are mainly the only blushes I reach for, I just wish they made more colors.

I haven't been wearing much, except for my face, cuz I don't get out of the house much and most of me is covered the whole time, cuz winter. But when I'm in Costa Rica I wear it daily lol I walk around under the sun and it's sunny almost daily, so yeah much needed! lol

Sorry, yes, I have tons of sunscreen! Living in Florida it's a must.

 

ETA: I'm also on Retin A so I burn easy. My family tells me I'm the palest girl in Florida.LOL I pull a Nicole Kidman and wear straw hats on the beach. It's a good look.icon_smile.gif

There's a lot of hype about sun screen, I only wear it at the beach and if it happens to be in my cosmetics.  I don't need it either. I actually prefer a bronzed look and slightly tan face and my preference is to get Vit D from the sun.

I tan, I don't burn, but I still wear sunscreen, that is my personal preference because I'm terrified of skin cancer.

I have to admit I am lazy about sunscreen, I am trying to get better about it. Also it doesnt help that I have really sensitive skin, so its hard for me to find one that doesnt irritate my skin.

Yes, no one wants a sun burn, I agree, they're terrible.  But constantly slathering oneself in sunscreen isn't necessary for...everyone.  

 

I prefer to make sure I'm stocked up on Vitamin D (the more D your body has, the more sun resistant it is), I prefer to limit sun exposure (tan is good, burnt is not), and I prefer to cover up (hat, long sleeves) rather than slather on the smelly, overpriced, icky feeling sunscreens.

At 25 my DH had skin cancer removed from a spot on his upper lip, then again a few years later. That was scary enough to get me to stop tanning and wear sunscreen at all times!

True maybe it's not a significant holiday to some, I didn't grow up in a country where St Patrick's day is really celebrated, BUT Emerald is the color of the year, so it would be nice if they send Emerald polish, or eye shadow or liner. And going by " it doesn't suit everybody", well a lot of colors don't suit everybody. I think the only ones that might are neutrals and neutrals are boring...lol

Like most things in the world, sun is healthy and non-damaging in moderation. 

 

Having heard professional opinions on the subject (after having a grandpa die from melanoma, but sunscreen didn't exist really back then, not even really when my dad was little, we were the first generation to really use sunscreen when outdoors all day)

 

the general opinion is if you don't burn, then any amount of sun exposure up to that point is totally normal and healthy, remember humans have been around for a long time, if the sun killed us we wouldn't still be a species. 

 

Yes, this means fair skinned individuals need more protection, and spf is smart, but a tan is totally healthy and normal, and if you are able to build up a tan slowly then you won't burn as easily, which is why before Hawaii or Coachella I always make sure to lay out like 30 mins every sunny day for a couple weeks leading up to whatever it is, it eliminates the worry of burning, I still wear SPF 8 on my body and SPF 20 on my face and shoulders, because it prolongs the amount of time you can spend in the sun, but without the "pre-tanning" I would be miserable 2 hours into the day.

 

Although I don't have to worry about Coachella this year, ugh lineup was terrible, skip.
