Recommended Posts

:wassatt: What is this I read about it in shape magazine apparently you place a pencil under your boob  I guess as your lying down in bed and if the pencil falls off your boobs are perky if not it means that you have saggy boobs.Anyone know if this is a true test or if this is just nonsense ? I know I have big boobs so I'am not sure if I wanna know if they are in place or not lol :unsure2: .

I read about it too and wondered the same. I don't think I'm even going to try. I'm sure it would be an epic fail for me. Multiple years of breastfeeding and there is not much that can be done at this point. Don't think I need a pencil test to prove it.

Well maybe I was holding the pencil wrong I put the pencil sideways not straight down  and according to the test I have saggy boobs lol but I dont have any children and I'am in my 20s and not that old to have saggy boobs but whatever lol I do have big boobs I'am like around  a full C/D .My boobs used to be a B cup so I do know for a fact my boobs got naturally bigger over time just with age.Teenager yrs I had like no boobs in my 20s they grew or something happened I didnt gain that much weight.

Yeah , I dont know I feel like their are different boob types not sizes but the way your boobs look.I dont have like implants / fake boobs so they dont look like sports illustrated models but at the same time their like big like that I dont know how to explain it lol.But I dont have saggy boobs like the girl from the  50 shades of grey movie either. I was just looking at victoria secret for sales lol anybody know when their semi annual sale is ? thats the only time I would ever buy their stuff I think its overpriced.I bought a dress online from VS once it was white it  turned out to be see through so I have to wear it as a cover up and it looked nothing like it did online.

 

June 7th is the semi annual sale ? I usually buy their clothing, and bikinis and cover ups and I shop online though and I dont shop in store.I never buy their PINK logo stuff I hate it.

I buy some VS stuff too sometimes. Some of their stuff is way over priced but with discounts it's not that bad.

Yeah I dont really like their bras / swimwear honestly not because of the price but I just dont think the quality is that great it doesnt last too long either.I bought a bra from them one time and it smelled like VS perfume which wasnt a big deal but when I would wear it it would leak out like a liquid I guess it was like perfume they used in store spraying it around but it was a weird consistancy like argan oil it was really oily on your skin.I was like uh what the hell is that oily stuff coming out of my bra top ? I didnt bother to contact the company or anything but maybe I should have since that was  really weird.

 

Another time I bought a PINK hoodie zip up one time and it had VS on the back in rainbow colors with sequins or some decoration stuff and the pieces would fall off all the time.The Hoodie was at least 50 dollars so I was like really its that cheap of a product that pieces are falling off of it ?

 

I like sales just as much as the next person but I dont even think I will buy anything from them on the semi annual I have had bad experiences with VS merchandise.

 

I bought a bikini from them once too and it was okay but it just wasnt worth it.The bikini bottom was way too  sports illustrated / playboy it showed a lot of A** like I dont even know if it would have been legal for me to wear that on any beach  because it just revealed way too much skin  it was like wearing underwear from VS but in public.I see better swimwear available at other places.

 

And I bought VS makeup before dont ask me why this was a long time ago and the lipgloss tubes it was like a lipgloss / lipstick I dont think they sell the product anymore.But it had no lipstick inside of it I pushed it up and their was literally no color nothing inside the tube and I bought two of them I was like oh great that was a waste of  money .

 

The stock / inventory is very low to begin with so they sell out of pretty much anything worth buying and they never have my bra size apparently everyone has the same boobs as I do which makes no sense at all to me .

 

Plus when you send stuff back their they give you a really hard time about it and I would have  cursed a b**** out so I didnt bother returning it.You basically have to argue / debate with the woman who works there and its not even worth it.

 

But yeah not the best place to shop.Its also really bizarre to me how some women bring their bfs / husbands into the VS store with them I guess to ask advice on what to buy lol its like uh what the hell are men doing in the store I'am trying to try on bras here its a little inappropriate.Men do not need to go bra / lingerie shopping with women ever that should be an unwritten rule.Its really uncomfortable / ackward.

I have always heard an alternate pencil test - standing up, you place a pencil under your boobs.  If it doesn't fall down, your boobs are saggy.

Wouldnt the pencil always fall down though since your standing up regardless ? its gravity I guess lying down made more sense to me lol.I will try that one too.I tried it 9 times out of ten times the pencil would fall but I think it all depends on your posture like if you have your shoulders back and stand up straight the pencil pretty much always will fall down.Other times it stayed more in place for a little bit but fell When I was like slouched over and had bad posture I never stand up straight I'am just too tall for that.Yeah I dont know I feel like the  pencil has  more staying power if your boobs are bigger like sometimes I put the pencil directly under my boobs and my boob fat just kept it in place for like a few seconds then fell but I dont think I have saggy boobs I never thought they looked saggy or anything but oh well who cares anyways only pervs are looking at your boobs :glasses: lol.

    • Kulit sensitif adalah jenis kulit yang membutuhkan perawatan ekstra dan tindakan pencegahan karena lebih rentan terhadap infeksi kulit dan alergi. Dan keluhan yang paling umum bahwa perempuan dengan kulit sensitif berhubungan dengan pasca-cukur. Jadi, untuk membantu Anda, kami telah mencantumkan beberapa kiat cukur untuk anak perempuan dengan kulit sensitif.   1. Tips cukur untuk anak perempuan dengan kulit sensitif termasuk pembersih Seperti yang kita semua tahu kulit sensitif membutuhkan perawatan dan perawatan ekstra karena jenis kulit ini lebih rentan terhadap infeksi dan flakiness. Dan itu juga akan mudah terpengaruh oleh debu, membuat kulit Anda lebih rentan terhadap pori-pori, komedo dan bahkan menyebabkan kusut yang menjadi hambatan untuk bercukur halus. Jadi, untuk mencegah hal ini, disarankan bahwa Anda harus membersihkan kulit Anda tiga kali dalam sehari. Plus, selalu mencoba menggunakan tisu pembersih dengan elemen alami atau pembersih alami.   2. Lakukan eksfoliasi untuk mengangkat sel kulit mati Jika kulit Anda memiliki terlalu banyak rambut atau sel-sel kulit mati, pisau Anda dapat menangkap semuanya dan dapat menyebabkan iritasi. Jadi, menjadi lebih penting bahwa Anda mengelupas kulit Anda. Anda dapat menggunakan exfoliator alami seperti scrub gula atau kopi scrub. Tapi, bersikap lembut saat menggunakan exfoliator dan luangkan waktu Anda.   3. Gunakan pelembab untuk mencegah iritasi Umumnya, kulit sensitif lebih kering dan tidak memiliki hidrasi yang dapat membuat proses pencukuran menjadi menyakitkan dan bahkan dapat menyebabkan reaksi kulit. Jadi, menjadi lebih penting untuk menjaga kulit Anda lembab karena membantu menjaga tingkat pH kulit Anda dengan menjaganya tetap terjaga dan lembut.   4. Jangan pernah mencukur ke arah yang berlawanan dari pertumbuhan rambut Mencukur ke arah yang berlawanan dari pertumbuhan rambut adalah teknik yang sangat umum diikuti oleh wanita. Tapi, dalam kasus wanita dengan kulit sensitif, teknik ini dapat terbukti sangat menyakitkan dan menyebabkan ruam dan benjolan. Jadi, disarankan bahwa Anda harus mencukur ke arah yang sama dengan pertumbuhan rambut menggunakan pisau tunggal untuk mendapatkan pencukuran yang halus. Dan, lebih baik menghindari cukur jika Anda sudah memiliki luka atau cedera.   5. Bilas kulit Anda dengan air sebelum bercukur Jika Anda memiliki kulit sensitif dan Anda mencukur kulit Anda ketika kering maka itu adalah kesalahan besar. Umumnya, kulit sensitif kering di alam yang juga merupakan penyebab utama masalah kulit dan infeksi. Dan untuk alasan ini, disarankan bahwa Anda harus pergi untuk bilas air 5 menit untuk membuat kulit Anda lembab dan bercukur dengan lancar   6. Gunakan alat higienis untuk mencukur Jika Anda juga ingin menjaga alergi kulit dan infeksi, kebersihan adalah aspek penting untuk dipertimbangkan terutama dalam kasus kulit sensitif. Untuk mencegah infeksi dan alergi, sangat penting bagi Anda untuk menjaga pisau cukur tetap bersih. Pastikan Anda tidak menggunakan pisau yang sama setelah 3 hingga 4 penggunaan karena dapat menjadi kasar dan dapat menyebabkan pendarahan.   7. Jagalah kulit Anda pasca bercukur Sangat penting untuk merawat kulit pasca bercukur agar tetap halus dan bersih. Banyak wanita dengan kulit sensitif mengeluh tentang sensasi terbakar, ruam kulit dan iritasi setelah bercukur. Jadi, untuk mencegah itu, kami telah mencantumkan beberapa tips untuk merawat kulit Anda.   • Selalu bilas kulit Anda dengan air dingin setelah bercukur. • Jika Anda mengalami sensasi gatal atau menyengat, pastikan Anda menerapkan paket dingin. • Pastikan Anda menggunakan gel aftershave. Dan jika Anda memiliki kulit yang sensitif, maka pilihlah pelembab alami seperti minyak kelapa, gel lidah buaya untuk memberikan efek menenangkan pada kulit Anda. • Untuk mendapatkan bantuan dari segala jenis iritasi dan rasa sakit, Anda dapat menempatkan kain dingin di sekitar kulit Anda.
    • Eyebrow pencils are not just for those of you who have over-tweezed or thinning brows; they’re for everyone! Unless you are a genetically modified superhuman with the ability to control how your hair grows, it’s likely you may have a little patchiness in your brows from time to time—that includes those who have naturally defined eyebrows. This is why it’s important to A) own an eyebrow pencil and B) know how to use a brow pencil to make your eyebrows look fuller. How to Fill in Eyebrows
      Here are a few tips to help you get fuller brows… or at least look like you have fuller brows! Find Your Perfect Brow Shape
      Finding your best eyebrow shape is critical when filling in your brows; otherwise, it’s sort of like drawing outside of the lines. You’ve likely heard that changing your eyebrow shape can completely change the way you look, and it’s true.  Brush Them Up
      Now that you know your shape, it’s time to start the fill-in process. This helps reveal your eyebrow’s true shape and it will also help you see any patchy areas that need a little extra love. Fill Them In
      Fill in your brows using short, dash-like strokes. Make sure your strokes are going in the direction of your hair. That means, on the tail portion of your brow, the strokes should go toward the end of your brow, but as you get closer to the head of your brow (by your nose), the strokes show go in an upward direction.  Add Powder for a Deeper Color
      If you want to make our brows stand out, even more, you can layer brow powder on top of the eyebrow pencil. Use the angle brush and powder from the  Eyebrow Kit to add definition to your brows. Using the same short motions, brush the powder into the last two-thirds of your eyebrows. Keep the inner third of your brows powder-free to help create a natural gradient look. The Best Eyebrow Pencil Shade for You
      As important as is it to know how to fill in your eyebrows to make your brows look fuller, we also know it’s important to use the right shade of Retractable Brow Pencil. That’s why we have 5 shades for virtually any brow color (except, maybe pink or blue—try our lip or eye pencils instead if you like dying your brows fun colors!). Here’s the trick to remember: most brunettes have eyebrows that are a similar shade to their hair color, but if you have grey, blonde or red hair, your brows are usually slightly darker than your natural hair color. Check out the below guide for your best brow pencil shade.
