What Were Your Best and Worst Beauty Experiences of the Week?

Published in: Just For Fun

My best…

To go out dancing last night I wore two of Urban Decay’s 24/7 Glide-On Shadow Pencils in Sin and Lit and really like how it turned out. I had on a black T-shirt and gold jewelry, so I did gold and black smokey eyes with a pink accent (a modified version of my default black/gold going out look). Oh, and these next two aren’t exactly beauty experiences, but I’ve been really happy with my eyebrows lately (go figure), and my bangs have finally grown out to where they don’t stick out at funny angles anymore, yea!

My worst…

Um…right now. Not only was I too lazy to shower when I got home last night, but I’ve been too lazy to shower so far today (gross, right?). I’m lovely. My hair’s got about a pound of spray gel in it, and my skin feels sticky. I really should peel myself off the couch and jump in the shower before The Walking Dead starts. Seriously, with the way I look now, they could cast me as an extra.

What were your best and worst beauty experiences of the week? Please share yours in the comments.

Your friendly neighborhood beauty addict,

Karen

    best = school holiday fair today. scored a bobbi brown denim & rose palette for…$10. aaa! <3
    worst = my growing pimple. sob.

  2. Sheetal says:

    My Best- Feels great to layer up with a thick shea butter moisturizer and tonnes of lip balm on wintry morns. ; then a good walk with the dog:)

    My worst- Dry, frizzled hair:( got to take my Olive oil massage…

  3. Debbie says:

    Best: I went to a wedding last weekend, and I really liked how my look turned out. Nothing elaborate makeup-wise, just a classic face and hair down, but I was pleased with the pictures πŸ™‚

    Worst: My chin decided to breakout like a beast. Must be the stress! This is my first time apartment hunting and I’m feeling kinda overwhelmed!

  4. Alice says:

    Best: Trying out this Olay Daily Thermal Mini Peel stuff (glycolic acid) and absolutely loving it. My face is sooooo smoooooooooth. Like buttah.

    Worst: Exactly yours, lol. I haven’t showered since Saturday morning. I feel gross but I like to think, I’m just making my hair healthy with more oils. That makes sense, right?!

  5. steph b says:

    Best: Doing a gorgeous but subtle enough for work gold and purple eye. It really brightened my eyes.

    Worst: My dry, scaly skin. I need to set up the humidifier stat!

  6. marisol says:

    Best – finally made it to Benefit & got my brows done. There’s two of them again. Hahaha!

    Worst – I haven’t been utilizing my make up as much as I should. The past two weeks I’ve been doing the same look with not a lot of pizzazz.

  7. Kayann says:

    Best – When I perfected my winged eyeliner look. πŸ™‚
    Worst – I would have to agree with you. Right now, I have a top knot, no make up. I’m just too lazy today! πŸ™‚

  8. Sam says:

    Best: Trying out *not* contouring before I went out tonight. Turns out my cheekbones can hold out on their own, and this makes my complexion look less muddy and more of the pale, “aristocrat” (HA!) complexion I prefer.
    Worst: Trying to wear my bangs down without having my Oribe Rock Hard Gel to use. Wouldn’t go piecey and kinda clumped, ensuring that I had to shower and redo it before I headed off to work…

  9. Rosie says:

    worst beauty was kind of an accident. I woke up yesterday morning and my left eyelid was 1/2 purple. kind of Urban Decay AC/DC purple without the shimmer. Not swollen or irritated, just deep purple. I work at a dr’s office and went in (on my day off!) for him to look at it. He said “no infection just a burst blood vessel. It might spread a bit.” He is right. Today it took over 3/4 of my eyelid. like a thick liner! Anyway, I went to church wearing Urban Decay AC/DC on both eyes. it was unnoticeable. We’ll see how it gets tomorrow!!

  10. Tracy says:

    Best–finding these great masks in packets at the drugstore-they’re by Balea. I’m having fun trying a different one when I want to!
    Worst–my dry skin. It’s so dry here and I’m so itchy!!

    Great season finale of TWD I thought. I hope it comes back sooner than next fall!

  11. Molly says:

    Best- got myself NYX shadow in “deep space”- um, hi, I’m in love? Such a great shimmery navy, great layered over my black gel cat liner and fat lashes!
    Worst- spent like an hour curling my hair (looked great, with a hint of Farrah Fawcett about it), went out and discovered it had started to snow. Killed my volume, bah πŸ™

    Tracy^^ Balea masks are so good! I love them, and if I don’t like one, I don’t have a whole tube oh mask I don’t want! (I’m actually wearing a similar brand mask now, Montauge Jenusse)

  12. Terri says:

    Best – Getting a $15 gift card from Sephora for being a Beauty Insider. It came at the perfect time – I was able to get some needed products without feeling too bad for breaking my self-enforced makeup purchase sabbatical

    Worst – My skin has been crazy since I got back from my conference. I can only hope that it decides to behave for a while πŸ™

  13. Best: I took one of my fav lippies NARS Heatwave out for a spin during World AIDS Day gatherings. It’s pretty bright and I can’t always find an occasion for wearing it without standing out like a sore thumb!

    Worst: this isn’t really a bad beauty experience as such but I lost my camera charger and my poor camera has died!!!! And I did my nails specifically for a NOTD too. humph

  14. Jellytea says:

    Best…last Monday I had a “perfect beauty day.” My outfit was crisp, my makeup was flawless, and my hair did exactly what it was supposed to.

    Worst…my skin. My pores are enlarged and my skin is oily πŸ™ I keep trying inexpensive skin care, and I think I just have to accept that drug store just is not enough for my skin. My budget will open soon and I can indulge once again. Oh and I tried another primer…omg complete fail. These things just seem to hate being on my face.

  15. Lucie says:

    Best: Did a really nice brown smoky eye w/ NARS Petit Monstre on my lips! I was so proud. Something about that lipstick (I just got it a few days ago) just makes me happy, the way make up should. I’d forgotten what it felt like to want to wear one product every day.

    Worst: My hair. Ughh. It was dyed neon orange, but I couldn’t find any more orange dye at Sally’s so I tried to cover it with pink, and now it is a puke-ish colour with dark brown roots. Ew.

  16. Heidi says:

    Best: loving my nail color right now — Wet n Wild Flirt nail polish in Misty Rose. It has a beautiful pearlescent finish that’s sooo pretty.

    Worst: the cold, rainy weather is making my lips really dry.

  17. Shev says:

    best – I recently discovered the benefits of using eyebrow fillers and I’ve been using them daily! I have been experimenting on different eyebrow thickness the whole week. πŸ˜›

    worst – I tried a new brand of concealer this week and I don’t think it’s working out well for me (doesn’t blend too well and i have a pimple (not sure if related)).

  18. mkdallas says:

    Best: Ordered 2 YSL Rouge Pur Couture lipsticks with their F & F discount; #11 Rose Carnation was just gorgeous and pinks don’t usually work well on me…yay!

    Worst: The other shade (#5 Beige Etrusque) looked fug-o-rama and now I have to send it back, on my nickel. Dang!

    Most fun: Wasted hours shopping for the perfect metallic holiday party nail polish in Ulta & CVS, cause I didn’t want to be too spendy. Found 2 really good ones & bought ’em both!

  19. Best: painted my nails. When my nails get long, I feel slightly naked when they’re not painted. It’s weird…

    Worst: right when one pimple goes away, another takes its place. grr

  20. me, myself and I says:

    best- rocked MAC dubonet (red) lipstick with a very simple and light shimmer eye with mascara and didn’t end up lookin like me-love-u-long-time

    worst- took off my acrylic nails (and then remembered why i don’t have them put on in the first place) and now my real nails bend at the slightest touch – pretty raunchy feeling

  21. BeautyMaven says:

    Best– trying out the look from the VS Fashion Show!! LOVE THEM! It turned out nicely!
    Worst– I had some leftover “tube” mascara on my bottom lashes, and when I went to rub my eye it HURT and I noticed some lower lashes were missing… weep.

  22. Stephanie says:

    Best: painted my nails with 3 polishes.. now it’s look exactly like one from china glaze. I don’t know its name but the color is a matte black with flakes.. or was it another brand. Can’t remember..
    Worst: Nude lipstick on my dry lips.. not very charming!

  23. Kim says:

    My best was on Friday when my Love and Toast loot arrived. I got a couple of fragrances for myself and some lip balms/fragrances for friends. That was fun. πŸ™‚

    My worst was on Sat night when, for the first time, I was failed by my Lorac eye primer and UD liners/Faux Cils mascara. I can’t tell you the number of times I had to clean up the Amy Winehouse look from under my eyes (and I wasn’t sweating… or crying). It was an inexplicable eye make-up disaster. Hopefully it was just a one-time issue. Sigh.

  24. Ivana says:

    Best: I ran out of foundation before a night out, and in panic mode I mixed some MAC Pro Longwear foundation (which I haven’t used bc the color was too dark for me) and mixed it with a tiny bit of Revlon Photo Ready (which I hate bc it seems to accentuate my pores) And not only was the color perfect but I fell in love with Pro Longwear! It is beyond amazing! No joke
    Worst: I waited too long between airbrush tans & started to resemble a splotchy beast, lol. Not a good look!

  25. meibaola says:

    Best – I have bought a cycle of manual lymphatic drainage and after only 3 sessions my thighs are looking awesome, I feel like I am 16 again! πŸ™‚

    Worst – A Dead Sea May Sole body scrub: it just leaves me oily without getting read of my dead skin at all… I bought a big jar at an extravagant price, I hate it but I will have to use it all *SIGH*

  26. Nina says:

    Worst — since the move, i cannot, for the life of me, make my nails grow longer …. theyre short and stubby and not so pretty right now.

    Best — finally growing into my new, rather short hair cut!!!

  27. kalcedon says:

    Best: crazy drugstore bargains!!! πŸ˜€ (one of them was quite an interesting product, ecause in the pan, it looked like an emerald khaki, but swatched it was a brown with green flex, so I was a bit disappointed… now I LOVE it! Perfect “neutral with a twist”-tape of daytime eyeshadow :D…)

    Worst:
    1) I dropped one of my fave eyeshadow palettes, and most of the product fell out and/or broke πŸ™
    2) peeling skin… at my eyebrows…

  28. Nicole says:

    Worst: Not really beauty…but my whole life my back has been pretty clear and now I am having a terrible case of “backne.”

    Best: Sundays are usually my beauty days and after a long night out Saturday my skin needed it. I used my KohGenDo Gommage Spa Gel and my skin is feeling amazing!

  29. Tessa says:

    Best; my skin being lovely even though it was -8 C over here and using a homemade wax, sugar wax… It’s amazing!
    Worst; This week was pretty good, all it can think of is that my Starsmakeuphaven order is still on processing!

  30. Katie says:

    Best: I’ve lost weight from running 6 days a week. I’m too scared to step on the scale but I can tell by how my clothes fit. A few more weeks and I think I’ll be brave enough to find out my weight.

    The worst – Not much, actually. Things have been good. πŸ™‚ How about my impatience? I’m waiting for some Zoya polish to come in and it’s been….6 days!

  31. Ru says:

    Best: Found a new unexpected color combo in UD BOS III: Bordello on the lid, money on the crease; MCRA on the center of the lid, Loaded as a liner! Came out soft but pretty! Money is def a winter color.

    Worst: Hardly anything really, I broke my nail last week and now my fingers look chubby because of my short nails. It just doesn’t compliment me!

  32. Deb says:

    Best – On Saturday, I did a totally gorgeous eye look with my UD Book of Shadows III. I used Maui Wowie all over the lid (some fallout, but worth it), Haight from the lashline to the crease and under my eye, then that purple liner it comes with. I loved it, and it stayed on all day! Oh yeah, wore it with MAC Ravishing lipstick with a coat of MAC Fashion Scoop Creamsheen on top.

    Worst – That Saturday look was for a party with friends, and it was so much fun, but pigging out on junk food and girly booze has it’s toll – Sunday morning, I had a new pimple and my skin was super puffy. Good thing I didn’t have to go anywhere – I didn’t really feel like it anyway after a party night.

  33. Marian says:

    Best: I have so many this week, I don’t know where to start! Firstly, I bought 5 new lipsticks and love them all! I joined Weight Watchers and followed the plan and worked out every day this week. Weigh in is on Wednesday. I’m pumped! I found a wad of money in hubby’s pocket while doing laundry and the rule in our house is “finders keepers”…..so I bought myself a nice boar bristle brush, some good shampoo and hand lotion.

    Worst: I have no complaints this week!

  34. my best was a party I went to on Sat. I recreated this Kim K look really well. Silver smokey eye with pretty nude lips. My worst is this morning. I forgot to buy something and I wanted to get it before hubby left to work so I ran out the house and while I was in the store realized that I had a pink silk scarf on my head.

  35. Tiffany H. says:

    Best: Having discovered the awesomeness that is MAC Woodwinked and Ricepaper (what took me so long) and finally getting my paws on WnW Nutty eyeshadow.

    Worst: My lips being so super dry that I can’t even where lipstick. My lips have been soaking up my lip balm like a sponge but they’re still super dry.

  36. Anita says:

    Best: I consider every day beaty-wise that isn’t a disaster to be success πŸ˜‰
    Worst: definitely when I went rollerskating at a place I used to go to years and years ago with my Christian homeschool group, full of hardcore Christians. Whenever I go somewhere where I am confident I will never see those people again, I sometimes like to wear something funky, like a bold eye or a bold lip. That day I chose bright, red lipstick. Somehow all those moms from years ago were still goin’ there, and they all gave me weird looks. x]
