9th for me too!  I'm really not excited about the remaining samples, I feel like I've gotten all the cool stuff in my first 3 months... but I'm thinking of dropping this for Starlooks, so it may work out!

I will be getting a box this month. My selection is: Not your mothers hairspray johnathan dirt texturizing paste the cream multiuse blush/lip/eye product the mark red lipgloss (I really liked the honey one) Hothouse flower perfume (it must be good considering all the buzz I hear about it on here) A yes to... facial wipe of some sort. basically I got all the past "one item I liked in the months selection" to show up in the same window!

I'm looking forward to getting the Ineke Hothouse Flower perfume sample - I want to see what all the fuss is about.  I'm also looking forward to trying the Whip Hand Cosmetics Locked & Loaded eyeshadow.  I really like Medal of Honor, which I got last month.  I kept getting Special Forces in my sample options, which I thought was the one I got last month, so I kept refreshing.  Oops.  Hopefully, I'll be able to get all the colors at some point.  I'd like to try Green Baret too.  

 

How do you guys apply the Whip Hand Cosmetics eye shadows?  The brushes I usually use for eyeshadow don't fit in the container too well and I always end up getting way more on the brush than I wanted.  I don't have any experience using loose pigment eyeshadow.  I have been getting compliments on my eyeshadow when I wear Medal of Honor, but applying it is kind of a PITA.

Depending on my mood and the look I'm going for....

 

With a sponge applicator OR a small brush. With pigments I find, for my own looks, that I like patting it on with an applicator versus applying with a brush because I'm still too old school and like my sponge applicators. If I'm applying it as an eyeliner then with a brush. I use a fluffy brush (crease brush) to blend it out.

For loose pigments like that I usually flip the product over so a little gets on the inside cap when I reopen it and apply from there versus dipping my brush in the container. it offers more control of how much product is used and the cap is bigger so you could use a slightly bigger brush

The Whip Hand colors that I missed out on are popping up in my selection window. I can't decide which one to get though! What are your favorites ladies? Does anyone have pics of swatches of all of them?

Is anyone else having issues with the BA website? I haven't gotten a box since November, but I've gotten some good stuff to come up lately so I decided I'd get one this month. Anywho, I logged into my account, and when I click on Choose Your Samples and my selection window page comes up, it gets stuck generating samples, and the little pink swirly dots just keep on a-swirlin blink.gif . Is it doing that to anyone else?

Oh dear. I'm having issues because so many good items this month in my selections to bad all six items I REALLY want don't popup together. LOL My favorite Skyn ICELAND eye gels are popping up again for a third time which I may pick because I LOVE those eye gels.

I canceled and re-subscribed to move my selection date up icon_biggrin.gif.  For me, this month's selection wasn't the greatest -- too many foil samples in my window icon_sad.gif

I'm glad I skipped last month since the pigments are still popping up in the selections. I wanted the last one just to complete the collection. My window doesn't open til the 10th ugh.

    • I used Tinder some time ago, but I don't really like it these days. There are so many bad and fake profiles... I like using some other dating services. I am sure that you will find something interesting and really working for you, good luck with it
    • I'm having some backsliding, but still trying! I'm really seeing progress using my full size cleanser, toner and moisturizer. I decided to change my routine. I have been experiencing for a while now some strange kind of boredom. When I'm not working, I really don't have fun any more. I don't get chores done either. I'll just get up, and the time just passes, and my room will be messy with a pile of laundry, and I don't get it done, and it makes me feel bad. I can't focus on reading a book or watching a show or movie. I always feel my weekend is a waste. I'm not having fun when I'm lazy like this either; it feels awful.  I decided to change my routine and fight this state! I told HR I wanted to work on Saturday every week and have Thursday off every week, which makes both my work weeks and time off shorter periods. I'm hoping it will be easier to make the most of time off when it is one day instead of an entire weekend. And I might feel less tired when the work week is broken up. I also made a list of all I hope to do in my days off. I want to have my laundry done, cleaning done, write in journal, post on Makeup Talk [I do enjoy writing], watch a show or movie and read a book, and best of all use a face mask on the two days off!  I'm not using all my face masks at all. I got a flyer from Yves Rocher with some awesome new face masks and scrubs. I really want one, but not until I've used up all the masks I have now! The Thursday and Sunday off will be my special beauty days to use up products with extra relaxing beauty routines.  Last night I went out with a friend of mine and my brother to Family Dollar. While she was shopping, I looked in the beauty section. I enjoyed it. I saw some things I wanted, but did not get, because I don't need them. I saw: Aromatherapy diffuser set with a little cherub. Pretty makeup brushes. I already have a ton. No reason to wear makeup because I always go out with a face mask. I should make an effort to use eye makeup though. I need to care for myself better and put effort into myself.  Skin care set with cleanser, toner, and cream in one box, only five dollars. I think the cleanser had shea butter. I wanted to try it, but have tons of skin care going back to 2017 I need to get through!  After we took our friend to eat, we came out and had a nail in our tire and a flat. The roadside assistance man was really nice though. I got a Car Care credit card and an appointment to get it fixed today. I am backsliding with my debt snowball, but I'm not going to let it stop me. I'm just going to keep going and start over with whatever debt is smallest, being diligent with No Buy/Project Use It Up.  I have been more productive this morning, started laundry and cleaning and wrote in my journal. The more I try the better it will get! Then maybe I won't order takeout so much. I'm kind of looking forward to going to the auto shop, because it will be something to accomplish, and then I'll go to lunch with my brother (less expensive than getting Door Dash).  The first mask I will be using up is my smallest sample, Glamglow Supermud Clearing Treatment. I have many mini masks from Ipsy, etc. and I believe two full size masks and two full size scrubs, and a box of sheet masks.   
    • I guess you should exercise and eat healthy for it!
    • You absolutely tip the student!! Regardless if they have been in the business for 20 years or they are just starting out - they are putting their time and effort into giving you a gorgeous cut/colour that you will love
    • It's awesom to have the national lipstick day could really amazed the women and girls ! They will ove to have different variety of shade and color ...
