    MiniCyn and I went to Ulta today, fully armed - me with a $75.00 gift card and she with $30.00 in cash

    HUGE sales/clearance going on this week

    We loaded up - between us, we walked out of there with

    - 3 new eyeliners (raisin, teal, and cobalt)
    - a new mascara (both Ulta's own line - their own line is Buy 2 Get 2 Free)
    - shampoo (some fancy-smancy brand whose name escapes me ATM )
    - conditioner (both made for super-straight styling)
    - Glittery hand sanitizer (not mine )
    - lavender/chamomile microwaveable neck wrap
    - tuberose-scented soy candle (~10 oz.)
    - Redken flat-iron spray
    - the Neutrogena battery-operated exfoliating thingee (dual speed one)
    - box of Neutrogena refill pads for above
    - cuticle nippers
    - concealer (again, Ulta brand)

    Not the most exciting list, but we're both over all the loot.

    Unfortunately, the store was insanely low on stock. I was there last weekend, and they were already out of a lot of stuff. Given that, along with what the place was like yesterday, I've no doubt that on Saturday, customers were swarming like a school of piranhas on a feeding frenzy .

    As for the Ulta brand, it doesn't suck, and if I'm experimenting with new colors, I get a less-expensive brand; if it looks , I'll buy the pricier stuff in the same shade.

    I'm crossing my fingers - we went on and got it as it was $14.50 less 15%. Same discount for the refill pads. MiniCyn hates the whole routine of cleansing, exfoliating, toning, and moisturizing, so I figure that even if it's a POS, it will get her into the habit of using an age-appropriate skin-care regimen. She loves it, so who am I to complain?

    I believe someone else posted that they liked the Wave once upon a time?

    I do the same thing unless I get a really cool pallate with pedestrian AND crazy colours. I very much want to buy any of teh Too Faced pallates for this reason.

    It's not a bad way to be with clothes either. Trendy stuff I try to buy a bargain-basement prices because soon enough it'll be over. If I like it enough to not care if I look out of date (and to be honest, I always look out of date-- I never stopped wearing boot cuts when everyone was all over skinnies, and I'm never giving up my '40s-inspired dress ), I'll see if I can get something better quality, but otherwise...

    I went to Ulta today too! SO MANY SALES. I nearly died (in the best way possible).

    I've got a Sephora gift card that I need to use up. It's for $25, so I'll be able to buy, um, one thing. I was thinking of buying another Tarte cheek stain. I misplaced my old one, but I absolutely loved it. Either that or maybe Nars the Multiple if I like it...

    Did she get the Wave or the Healthy Skin Rejuvenator?

    I have the Healthy Skin Rejuvenator, and I really like it. My skin feels fantastic after I use it, but I don`t use it as often as they suggest, twice a week is enough for me.

    Attention Canadians!

    www.murale.ca

    Has anyone gone to one of their stores before? Has it been mentioned and I've forgotten? I'm going to make a pilgrimage-- sorry, trek to one, and will report back. I'm hoping it's our own version of Ulta, but I'm not holding my breath.

    That store looks like it's a lot nicer and more upscale than Ulta. Just from looking at the website and picture of the store.

    And they sell Danish GOSH cosmetics!!! I bought some GOSH eyeshadow and lipgloss when I was in a random drugstore in Iceland. I haven't seen that brand since then.

    Gosh is at some Shoppers' Drug Marts. Is it excellent? It always looks very hip.

    I could do without the lip gloss, but the eyeshadow is great! Definitely give it a try as I don't think it was all that expensive (of course, I paid in Icelandic kronur before their currency totally dropped and everything was tres expensive in Iceland). The colors are very hip. The eyeshadow I have is silvery and works well on the lid.

    GOSH Darling lipstick (nude) has a huge following of YouTubers and makeup bloggers. I'm pretty sure it's all lollipop26's fault.

    I buy it at Sephora and I think you can order through the Jonathan Product website too.

    Don't be freaked out by how light-brown the powder for brunettes looks. I use it at least once a week on my black hair and no one ever notices it.

    So I finally caved and bought some mascara. I've always had bad experiences with mascara since it would clump and get sticky and feel weird when I blinked. (Not to mention coming off all over my eyelids as the day wore on.)

    I am now a convert to Lancome's Hypnose! I had to really make an effort to wipe off the extra liquid off the brush, but once I got it evenly on my lashes, it didn't feel sticky and it didn't come off at all. I applied it this morning and I can still see my lashes just as well as when I applied it. And not a speck of it is on my eyelids! This stuff is magic.

    BTW, can anyone recommend a good skincare regimen for very acne-prone super-sensitive skin? My 22-y-o sister's seeing a facialist AND a dermatologist (who has her on THREE oral antibiotics ) and her acne still isn't cleared up. She says it's gotten better, and I've definitely seen it worse, but it's still pretty bad. Likes, red/purply cystic bad. She's thinking of doing Accutane next year, which really says a lot since she has a phobia of needles and going on Accutane requires monthly blood tests.

    I told her she really should exhaust all options (including birth control pills for hormones) before going down that route, but I really don't know any skincare regimens that might help. (My skin's acne-prone too, but very tough.) She's pretty much tried all the drugstore brands under the sun, but is hesitant to shell out big $$$ unless she gets a sample first, to see how her skin will react to it.

    My skin got better when I stopped all the crazy stuff and went to Cetaphil soap and Eucerin and CeraVe moisturizer. I have dry, acne-prone skin. I respond best to benzoyl peroxide, so I bought a generic 10% tube of it for topical application. The best acne prevention of all is to not forget my thyroid pills, because the thyroid regulates hormones.

    Oral antibiotics didn't do very much for me at all, because my acne is hormonal (cystic) and they did nothing to regulate the hormone level. She should definitely look into birth control for hormonally-caused acne. She might also want to look into thyroid tests. If her thyroid is underactive, it may be causing her acne.

    Beg her to stay away from Accutane: http://www.naturalessentials.com/accutane.htm, it is very dangerous. My son had bad acne. His dermatologist gave him antibiotics, they didn't really help as much as we hoped. Then he was put on Nicomide, it helped a lot. We also got him the Clinique, for men, skin care for acne regimen, it worked very well. My son's dermatologist would not put him on Accutane, and we agreed.

    Could it be a hormonal imbalance your sister has? Could it be less her actual skin/pores/etc. and more internal?

    I heard that Accutane was voluntarily pulled from the market by the manufacturer. Not a good sign. My derm wanted to put me on it, but I said no!
