I could've sworn we talked about Ulta before? It's in that shopping center in AP, by the Target.

It's not as good as Sephora, but it carries a lot of the high end stuff such as Urban Decay, Stila, Smashbox, etc. It has a lot of the drug store brands, too. It also carries Redken products, which is great for me since that's allI ever use.

I remembered we talked about one place before, but I wasn't sure if it was the same one. I was over there a few weeks ago at Barnes and Noble, and I saw it across the way. I thought it might have been the same one you mentioned before. Maybe I'll stop in there next time. I looked up the Benefit Erase Paste, and I'm definitely getting it next time, whether I go to Ulta or Sephora.

Ulta doesn't carry Benefit, unfortunately...

They do have Bare Minerals, though - so it's good because it's nearby (closer than the nearest Sephora relative to us, at least) if you need to stock up on something you use all the time.

Score. I'm almost out of the Bare Vitamins "rev-er upper", that comes in the starter kit, but I just bought the regular sizes of the foundation, warmth, and mineral veil last month. I didn't really want to go all the way out to Sephora just for that. Although, if I do decide to get the Erase Paste, I guess it wouldn't really matter. I'd have to go out there, anyway.

Like Britt said, try to play up your best/favorite feature and then go minimal with everything else. I play up my eyes and then go fairly neutral with the rest. My lips are already full, so I either do nothing but lip balm, or try to downplay them with a nude shade. Play around a bit, it's fun

Btw, I guess lip balm falls in the makeup category, so I thought I'd share my new little gem

Ballmania Premium Lip Balm SF-20

This stuff is a-ma-zing I've searched high and low for what works the best and found a few favorites(Blistex DCT, Nude Lips from Nude Skincare UK - if you don't mind paying 10 british pounds for a tiny container of it, etc.) This is the absolute best I've ever used. I put it on for the first time one night and woke up with the most supple lips ever It's also got SPF 20 and tastes like vanilla.

Win

I just spent 27 at Ulta today and got free lip gloss.

NO NO NO NO NO.

Btw, has anyone bought any of the Smurfette collection by Too Faced? I have the illuminating face powder.

April, what shade of the Erase Paste do you use? I know you said you have fair skin, and I do too. I remember reading somewhere that you're supposed to use a shade darker for under-eye circles, but I'm not sure.

Get a colour consultation with a professional if you can - if not, find out what skin tone and coloring you have. Then build a palette around it The key is to look attractive but not overdone. Pick out your favourite feature, one that gets you the most compliments, and highlight that

I do up my eyes pretty heavy each day I have to go out. Eyeliner is a cultural thing for me so I apply that, both liquid and pencil and a few coats of mascara and a lip gloss.

Feel free to ask more questions

I use the #1 fair shade. A consultant at Sephora was the one who picked it out so I trust her.

I went to Sephora today to try the Erase Paste after seeing the recommendations here. I always get dark circles too, I stay up too late every night
Anyway, unfortunately the shades clashed with my skin tone and looked really grey on me. However the consultant used the Eye Bright pencil with the Benefit Boing concealer on me and the color was much better. I didn't buy it though because unfortunately the concealer was much too heavy and "makeupy" for me. I don't wear anything except sometimes a little eyeliner and lipstick so I'm looking for something very lightweight if anything. Any other suggestions?
