theBalm on Hautelook: Friday, May 3

Recommended Posts

I got BalmJovi during their website sale, and I really like it. It's nice that I can pick up stuff I didn't get on Hautelook now.  Does anyone else think that some of their product names are kind of sexist? I'm not an ultra feminist or anything, but I did stop at names like "If You're Rich, I'm Single" or "Work is Overrated" or "No Money, No Honey," etc. A lot of the other ones are more playful at least.

I was bummed that I missed out on the thebalm's 50% off sale, and I was also sad that they didn't have any of the instains, but still, there was a ton of stuff that I've had my eye on for ages. I got the concealer, foundation, two brushes, and the nude 'tude palette. Glad I saw this thread a few days ago.

I can't resist. I missed it on Hautelook last time and i passed on the 50% off sale because I'm in Canada (shipping was steep, but mostly I was scared of the customs bill I was going to get when it all got delivered. I've filled up my cart with the max 12... I know I should drop some of it. Anyone know whether or not the brushes are decent? And any products that will just be disappointing?

I don't know why I was thinking free shipping on orders over $35... I swear Hautelook's shipping deters me every single time. Was going to pick up Frat Boy, Down Boy, and Cabana Boy but the shipping is almost like paying for a fourth blush without actually getting it!

Yeah, I totally agree.  I actually just nixed my order because I despise paying for shipping so much!!

Anyone tried the lipstick in Foxxy Pout? Think it'll look good on medium skin?

Yeah, I acutally kind of hate the names. I think I'm the only one who finds them annoying. I think most people think they're "cute".

Does anyone know what happened to the other Meet Matt(e) palette? The one before the Nude version? It wasn't on the Balm's site and I was hoping it'd be on Hautelook next time and it's a no show!

I'm wondering if they discontinued it, because you're right about it not being available during the Balm's sale. Maybe try eBay or Amazon?

I saw it on a Walgreens that carries theBalm... don't see it anywhere online anymore.

I haven't tried it yet. The only TM that I have is Neutrogena and the color's bit dark, so I don't use it. Balm Shelter looks promising based on reviews tho, and opinions here on MUT. You like it right? I'm also looking forward to the concealer. Do you have this concealer? How do you compare it with tarte's maracuja?

Ahh I bought the tinted moisturizer too and was going to ask how your experience was with it.  I'm looking for something lighter to wear during the summer so I hope it's good!

 

I've been waiting for this day :D

 

 

I got the Nude 'Tude palette, the Mary-Louminizer, Bahama Mama, and the TM.  Can't wait to get them!

 

I almost got some concealer, and after reading this thread, I really wish I would have!! :/ Might still get it after I work a few days this weekend.

I really hope their TM isn't oilyyy.. That's the worst!

 

I have Nude'Tude, Mary Lou, and Bahama Mama. I think you're gonna LOVE them! Bahama Mama is my current go-to bronzing/contouring powder --and I have a lot of bronzing powders. I love contouring!!

Beyond shadows/palettes I've only used their foundation. I loooove it and its not oily at all. I haven't used the concealer but there were really great reviews and before/afters I saw on YouTube. I'm hoping if I'm a light/medium in foundation then id be that same shade for everything else if I DO buy... Which I shouldn't. I do love that foundation though.

I have an address in the US but to ship from there to here (Toronto) I'd be looking at around $25+, so for Hautelook the 10$ shipping fee and the 20% of taxes and international surcharges is ok if i get a large enough order. Everything is more expensive here anyways, and because Hautelook charges the US price (with the CAN exchange rate being pretty equal) I still end up saving. And the best part, I don't have to worry about paying taxes/customs at the door when my order finally gets delivered. Or maybe I'm just trying to justify why I keep ordering a ton of times...

 

Anyone who has the concealer or foundation in 'light' or 'lighter than light', how's the match & what's your MAC/MUFE shade? I don't know which to get. OMG I lost 'Put A Lid On It' cause I didn't re-add it fast enough. :( I'm gonna be optimistic and say another ones gonna free up.

I have Balm Shelter(along with a theBalm hoarding problem...) It's decent, not at all oily. I have dry skin though and it didn't cut it as a moisturizer. I normally use Bobbi Browns TM and compared to that, Balm Shelter feels really heavy, closer to actual foundation than moisturizer. It has pretty good coverage though. I picked up and extra because its great for $12. :)

I finally got my Hautelook package.

 

All I can say is all the hype around Mary Lou Manizer is true!

What an amazing product!!!! Love!!!!

I also got the Meet Matte Nude (size matters) palette.

I like it, not sure I love it though.

The shadows seem a bit chalky...not bad, but not fantastic quality.

Did anyone else have that impression?

 

Maybe I just need to play around with it a bit more.

I have the Meet Matt(e) Nude palette from theBalm's 50% off sale... it's one of my go-tos! I bought the Nude Tude palette as well, and decided to keep it in it's packaging to give away since I don't think it's all that great. I've been really into matte shadows lately, I guess. Maybe a TAD chalky, compared to my Lorac Pro palette shadows, but still lovely shadows. 

 

and yes, Mary Lou is AWESOME! I was so happy they replaced my broken one since I use it daily :)

    • 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 ...
