Thanks, everyone :) I'll see what's available to me here at a reasonable price and maybe splurge in one or two things.

I get totally confused about all the other 17 steps, serums, tonics, yadayada that I’m supposed to be doing. Who’s got the time or money for all that.
This is basically me. I have no idea what some of the basics mentioned here are :lol:

@PRlady were you able to get your usual stuff when you live in Israel?

My Sephora order arrived with my Becca highlighter backups in it (one Rose Quartz and one Vanilla Quartz.)

Good news is that nothing was smashed or broken.

It was, however, stuck in the community mailbox for 24 hours as the lock was frozen on the box. :wall:

DH managed to pry it out this morning while saying a few choice words.... :lol::cheer2:

I keep meaning to post this here. If you are having issues with your neck, this stuff is amazing. I feel like it tightened everything up, especially around my jawline. It's pricey, but it's been worth it to me. Next time there's a coupon, maybe check it out if this is your problem area.


Just wanted to thank for you this - it works. Does anyone use anything else in this line?

I have a question: I keep seeing ads for Sheertex "unbreakable" tights. They are very expensive ($69 a pair) but has anyone tried them? Are they truly "unbreakable"? And do the sheer ones look like granny hose or more like regular tights? As someone who is always tearing/ripping my tights I am thinking of buying a pair.

@canbelto I have the nude, the black, and....one other color that I don't recall at this time. Like I said, the nudes are thicker than normal hose, but not so thick that I felt weird wearing them.

I bought one of these Revlon One-Step Volumizer hair dryers last May and it already is broken.

Ulta gave me in-store credit, which I am fine with. I still need a good hair dryer, and would be grateful for some recommendations. I'd be willing to buy one of the expensive ones if you thought it might make a difference. It doesn't even have to be available for sale through Ulta, as there is other stuff I can buy there.

Nope. (Don’t know how I missed this.) The selection was narrow and the prices were :eek: I stocked up in the US and brought everything with me when I came back!

My trusty Braun hairdryer lasted an amazing 20 years and I replaced it last year. The new one is good too, it feels really solid but it's sadly not as powerful as EU regulations restricted power in the meantime.

Another fully tiffed day today complete with pearls. I had to look good for my vaccine selfie!
And despite being advertised as “no transfer”, Laura Mercier tinted moisturizer does rub off. Actually, I don’t blame Laura as it was most likely the ill fitting mask that they required at the vaccine site. My real mask had no transfer.

I put a Sephora order in yesterday as the Becca lipsticks were 10 dollars off.

They are my favourite and I will miss them when they go in September.

I only bought 2 that I will start to use immediately (I finished one in the same colour a couple of weeks ago. I’ve actually burned through about 3 or 4 of these in the past 24 months.)

I find that they go off within 12-18 months so it’s not a good idea to stock up.

4/09-4/19 20% off

VIB (15%) and INSIDER (10%)

Start 4/13 - 4/19

Not a Rouge anymore. :( Half of it was ********* and half was giving up on a certain amount of vanity.

Re: hair dryers, I've had my Super Solano for like ten years. Pricey but worth it.

I am Rouge this year and last year but I don't think I will make it next year.

I haven't used a hair dryer in more than a year.... :shuffle:

I've been Rouge for years, but my bet is a I lose it this year. I'm still doing my skincare and wearing makeup, but the last year has made me more frugal so I've been using up the buckets of samples and minis and freebies I have, not splurging on every sparkly new thing I see.

As I was shopping for the sale (my first order since the fall sale I think!) I was getting increasingly irritated by the number of items they no longer carry, or that are currently out of stock. Ended up buying only three things, cashing in a measly 100 points of rewards, and it was a stretch to pick even one free sample. Then I went over to Clinique's site and loaded up on the items Sephora didn't have, and got 15% off in the process (first order bonus), so nearly even anyway.

I also buy direct from Charlotte Tilbury's site. I've mentioned this before I'm sure - prices are the same as Sephora or department stores, but there are a lot of online exclusives and promotions too. Shipping is always free, you get some good samples at times, it's delivered within days (I'm in a big city) and the packaging is gorgeous, like opening a Christmas present :)
