3:40 pm - Question about SPF and veil

I've got a high end liquid foundation without SPF.

How dense should I apply setting powder or veil with SPF that the sunscreen works?
Usually I only slightly dust my face over foundation with veil and MAC brush 187. Is it enough? How long will it last?

Comments, recommendations are appreciated.

7:50 am - When do you toss your eye shadow?

My eyes have been bothering me lately, and I was sure that it was due to the fact that I was wearing cheap mascara. So, I bit the bullet and bought some BE mascara. My eyes aren't bothering me *as much*, but they're still a little sore.

It got me thinking ... maybe it's my eye shadow, NOT my mascara?

I have the following:
- 4 eyeshadows that were gifts from Christmas '07 (BE)
- 2 eyeshadows that were purchased ~ Spring/Summer '08 (BE)
- 2 eyeshadows that were purchased in June '09 (EM)
- All other eyeshadows purchased in November '09 (6, I think? Not sure exactly, they came in sample packs from EM)

I am pretty sure the eyeshadows bought in 2009 are probably fine ... but the older ones? Should I toss those?
I hate the idea of chucking them, because there's still a lot left in the containers, but if that's the eye culprit, I probably should, huh?

Also - wondering ... what is your favorite brush-cleaning routine?

8:17 pm - Bare Escentuals Eye Club

Hello all,
I'm an established BE addict (thanks to a friend of mine who worked there a couple years ago - curse her, getting me BE for Christmas!), just joined the community :)

I joined the BE Eye Club a few months ago, and I'm curious whether anyone knows the order/contents of the shipments you receive? I just got my second shipment, and while I was delighted to get two of the colors, the third was a duplicate of one I had *just* purchased. I'd love to know what I can expect in future shipments so I don't accidentally buy an eye color that I'm going to get in the mail a month later :P

And since we're on the subject, if anybody wants to swap a sealed full-size Sex Kitten for another eye color, I'd be delighted to trade (I don't really foresee using up the entire pot of Sex Kitten that I have any time in, oh, the next five years, so I don't really need an extra).

3:11 pm - Shiseido to buy Bare Escentuals

What does everyone think of today's news?

I'm concerned.  Even though Leslie seems to be staying on, I liked the fact that it was a small(er), woman-owned business.

3:41 pm - Brushes

I just got my first Bare Minerals kit about a week ago from Sephora. I like it so far but I am having problems with massive bristle fall out on the fluffy brushes that were included in the kit. I didn't watch them before I used them (bad me, I know). But is this normal for them? After a few weeks and a washing will it stop?

Also after washing the brushes how long does it take for them to dry?

Thank you!

8:40 pm - Just warning everyone, so it doesn't happen to you also.

Hey everyone,

Just wanted everyone to keep an eye out for pinksta_r in this forum, about a year ago I purchased $45USD worth of bare escentuals cosmetics from her "sale" and have to this day not received my items or a refund. I was not the only person she scammed in this auction she also scammed many other girls, so I just wanted to post this so it doesn't happen to anyone else.

Heres a link to the so called "sale" http://community.livejournal.com/bareescentuals/294798.html

I wrote to her many times asking her to either send my items or send me my money back and I also won my paypal claim against her, but unfortunately she cleared out her account before they froze it. I then messaged her again a few months ago and heres one of the messages she sent back, I was shocked to even get a message back and actually got my hopes up that Maybe I was finally going to get my money back...

Re: (no subject)
from pinksta_r

I do see where you are coming from. I am extremely... sorry is such a little word. But I am sorry for the mess.

Now, I will do what I can by sending you the money this week. I promise you will have it by next week... or 3 days? Well, I'm transfering the money this week and I think it posts in 3 days. Either way, I'm making sure you get your money this time!

Have I seen the money yet, NO and this was over 9 weeks ago that she said this.

So please watch out everyone, I don't want the same thing to happen to anyone else.
