What is a high quality makeup set that is perfect for warm skin tone?
The maximum I am willing to spend is 40 dollars. Also, I prefer to not buy this online, so please name any store locations.
And what I mean by makeup set, I mean it should include lipsticks, blush, eyeshadow, and applicators. Also the colors should all go well for warm skin. I just hate it when a set has a mix of warm and cool colors, usually half of the items go untouched. <_< Anyway, I want the high quality stuff! Thanks in advance!
I’m a hispanic female with a warm skin tone. I used to always look for sets also. I have the smokey eye kits from bare essentials. It’s under 30. It has your dark brown, medium brown, and highlight color to make your eyes pop. If you go into the bare Essential store I’m sure you will like what you see. Alot of colors to compliment the warmer skin tones. But try to stear away from full kits because they tend to come with one thing that is good like the eye shadows and everything else isn’t really the color you wanted. Just go get a mini make-over like at sephora or Bare essentials. They will hook you up.
Where do i buy bare minerals and how can I find the right shade for me?
Do they have it at sephora? i heard it works really well. whenever i buy foundation and stuff i always get the wrong color any tips?
by the way i am 16 years old would this be too much makeup for me to wear?
Bare Escentuals is a great product when used in moderation. If you have fairly good skin then it works great and gives a very flawless finish. If you have alot of redness or blemishes then it takes a good bit to cover and you might end up looking a little over made-up. Please be sure to get the right color. I have seen so many girls walking around wearing the wrong shade and they look foolish. I would recommed going to a Bare Escentuals Boutique if they have one near you (you can look up locations at their website) and if not try Sephora. They also sell it at Ulta, but I would NEVER recommend going there to have them help you find a shade, their staff their isn’t trained well. It is a good idea to get the starter kit, it comes with two shades of foundation so you can mix to get it just right, plus it comes with the brushes you need, mineral veil to set it and warmth which gives you a health glow (also in moderation).
An additional note- if you are allergic to bismuth this product can irritate your skin. If you know you are sensitive to bismuth you can find mineral powder online without that ingredient.
Where i can find good quality make up brushes in NYC?
I am from Brazil but going soon to New York City, and i would like to know if anyone knows where to find great quality make-up brushes (Pony, Capra, Sable, Squirrel or Natural fiber) , which brand or which store i could find it (give me the address also, please). Sephora is just too expensive to my pocket =/ So i would really love some suggestions and tips!
Thank you very much and sorry about the english misspellings.
I think MAC has the best makeup brushes. They are made of natural hair/fibers and they are really great quality.
Here is a great MAC store in NYC-712 5th Avenue, New York
For specific type of brushes these are some good ones to start off with. You can always order more on the internet even if you do live in Brazil.
-MAC 187 Duo Fibre Brush(highly recommend,when you use it to apply your foundation/tinted moisturizer it gives you such a nice airbrushed look. It’s also amazing for MAC’s finishing powders,blush,and cream blush)
-MAC 116 Blush Brush
-MAC 194 Concealer brush
-MAC 190 Foundation Brush(not neccesary but some people prefer using a flat brush to apply foundation, I personally like the Duo Fibre brush better for foundation/tinted moisturizer application)
-MAC 182 Buffer Brush(great for powder and bronzer)
-MAC 168 Large Angled Contour brush (perfect for contouring with bronzer as well as using it for blush)
-MAC 239 Eye Shadow brush (a definite must have, great for application)
-MAC 217 Crease/Blending Brush (great for blending eyeshadow and application if you want a softer touch)
-MAC 272 Angled Shader brush
-MAC 242 Shader brush (good for paint pots and cream eyeshadow)
-316 Lip Brush
Also definetely check out the makeup brushes at http://www.rickysnyc.com/ (here are the store locations http://www.rickysnyc.com/ustorelocator/location/map/) . They have makeup brushes as well that are pretty nice.
How much money will it cost for decent tix for the 2011 winter classic and when r they released to the public?
When would be the best time to buy?
If you are an NHL Fan and go to NHL Games, then you know that there will be a Lottery and there will be at least 500,000 Ticket Requests and Citizen‘s Bank Park in Philadelphia is only going to hold about 50,000 Fans at most. This is true every year for the Winter Classic. If you are one of the lucky people who wins, then you will have the opportunity to buy tickets. I forget what the prices are, I went to the 2011 Winter Classic The Washington Capitals vs. The Pittsburgh Penguins. The Tickets are at least as much as you pay to sit Lower Level in the Arenas for any Regular Season Game.
Do you think the Inland Empire deserves an NBA team, instead of Anaheim?
If Mayor Kevin Johnson can’t get meet the Maloof’s expectation, the Kings will re-locate after next season, probably to Anaheim. I was thinking, though, that the Inland Empire might be a better place to have a franchise.
The Kings could play at CitizensBankArena, located in Ontario, CA.
San Diego, I think the the OC and Inland Empire are way to close to LA and it won’t work out, to many Laker fans. But San Diego is a huge city 1 million strong. Have the team play in Escondido and just have the SD name. It would be perfect. With all of SD county, along with those in the OC and Inland Empire who aren’t Laker fans, it could be a good 3 to 4 million population of new San Diego Kings (or whatever name they choose).
What would you say is the best AHL experience there is?
Take everything into consideration: city, team, arena, the whole fan experience in general.
Phantoms- Spectrum- Philly- Cheesesteaks (yum).
I love the whole Philly set-up. Wachovia Center, Citizen‘s Bank Ballpark, Lincoln Financial, Spectrum all one big chunk of land.
I am a Philly fan BUT I am not just saying it because of that, it is the best set-up that I have encountered with all of my travels. That said, I haven’t been to every arena so maybe there are better experiences out there but none that I have yet come accross. I mean, come on……..it’s classic, it’s the SPECTRUM.
I have an Original RolexSubmariner, but i live in a very unsecure country, so im not feeling comfortable going around with it in my hand. I would like to buy a Good replica Submariner, and leave the original at home. There’s alot of webpages that say ( BEST REPLICAS HERE), but maybe someone of you guys knows one in particular that have true good replicas.
Replicas are illegal scams. Once you hold the replica near you real watch the differences will be so obvious.
A replica will not keep good time and will fail in a month!
What is the Worlds best mans wristwatch ?
My shout is the RolexSubmariner. Any better ?
My choice is same as yours
Which of these watches should I get for Christmas?
My Grandfather is getting me a watch, and I don’t know which one I want. Rolex Air-King Automatic with Red Dial S/S
or RolexSubmariner Automatic Two Tone with Black Bezel and Dial
or Rolex GMT-Master II Automatic with Green GMT Hand /Green GMT Markers-Ceramic Bezel
Thanks in advance.
or the Rolex Datejust Automatic Number Markers with Light Blue Waved Dial S/S
Also, I’ve never had a Rolex, can someone who has one tell me what I can expect?
Get the Rolex GMT-Master II Automatic with Green GMT Hand /Green GMT Markers-Ceramic Bezel it looks cool!
How much would it cost to buy a new Tissot prc 200 with a blue dial in USA California nowadays ?
I was planning to visit america and I had this idea of having a new watch
That watch comes in many styles ranging from $300-700 USD. The blue dial face that you mention is normally on the sport model which lists for about $300 USD. You may be able to find it in a duty free airport shop at a better price.
What is the difference between Tissot and Swiss Army watches?
cuz they both have the same symbot, a silver cross in a red square..
Swiss Army watches are manufactured by Victorinox whilst Tissot is a brand in the Swatch group. Tissot is generally considered the more prestigious brand. The similarity of the branding is because they both emphasise their Swiss heritage by borrowing elements of the design of the Swiss flag, a white cross on a square, red background.
How much is a Tissot PRX, silver wrist band, gold plated, water resistant?
I have found this around the house and I am interested how much it is worth, I found some watches that are of a lower quality than this one and it sells for 304$/213euros. So I could start an auction at 500$/356euros, or less.
I want to put a fan on our passive radonsystem (already put under house and vented through roof). I’d like to hook up the fan in our basement myself but could use some help finding a good resource to choose the fan from. Is there somewhere online I can go to research/buy? Or would a Lowes/HD be my best bet? thanks! – P
A fan for a passive system needs to be sized for the square footage of your basement and for the method used beneath the floor of your basement to allow the air to flow to the pipe. If you don’t know how this was done it is good to question the builder. Typically either drain tile is used or gravel is laid to allow air movement under the floor to the vent pipe. In some cases, as has been my experience, neither of these are done and the pipe is shoved into the dirt and the vent doesn’t work at all.
As far as installing the fan in the basement, this not advisable. A radon fan must be installed outside the living space of the home, in your case in the attic. The reason for this is because if a leak were ever to developed above the fan it would force high concentrations of radon into your house. This is clearly stated in all radon mitigation protocols.
A radon fan is a specialized piece of equipment, that’s designed to run in wet conditions and at lower amperages. Also a manometer should be added assure that the fan is working and moving the air from the ground that is required to reduce your radon level. Don’t try to buy something at the local Big Box store.
If you would like to contact me I could help you out.
How much does it cost, and how is a house treated for radon?
The average cost of a radon mitigation or the reduction of radon from a building as stated by the EPA and most health departments is around $1200.00. With a little effort in most market areas you can find qualified mitigators that will get a simple house fixed for this amount or less.
The most common method and in my opinion the best way to reduce radon is by depressurizing the soil below the the home. This is done by sealing the interior of the foundation and cement slab from the soil below and applying suction to the ground below with a special fan that vents the radon gas harmlessly above the roof of the home. This creates a negative pressure below the slab which disallows the radon from rising into the home. These fans usually draw way less that 100 watts and will give nearly a decade of worry free service. These systems also have the added effect of reducing moisture and typical basement odors.
Would you buy a house that sits on an area that emits Radon gas?
Don’t know what the levels are but if the house is retrofitted to vent it out is it still dangerous? Especially if you want to start a family there?
If the house is good value and if the current owner is willing to at least share the costs of a mitigation system I would buy it. You can buy it conditionally if the level is reduced under 1 pCi/l
Is an omega beijing seamaster aqua terra a good watch?
Hey guys I am planning on buying a omega beijing seamaster aqua terra watch. and i want to know if its a good watch to buy. Plus I want to know where I can purchase one.
Its a great watch but be careful China makes real good counterfeit watches. I bought Rolex watches that only an expert could tell were counterfeit. I wish I could tell you of a safe place to buy one but I cant. Even Wal-Mart has with out their knowledge sold counterfeit watches. Near the bus station in Guangzhou, the one near T-Mall, you can go to the Rolex head office they might help you to find a safe place to buy your watch
How much room is there for negotiation on fine watches at a Jewelry store?
Example: is an OmegaSeamaster‘s retail price of $2000 a good deal or can I get it for 50% of that if I negotiate?
I’ve gotten Seamasters at about 15-20% off the price and most jewelry stores will do that if you negotiate a bit. 50% won’t usually happen. The deepest discounts are usually from online “gray market dealers” or slightly used.
The best prices on the net on Omegas that I’ve found are at:
The only drawback is no Omega warranty. If you buy from a dealer, you get the warranty but you pay a bit more. Still, always ask for at least 15% off. Never pay full retail on a nice watch.
Nice watch doesn’t apply to Seikos or Fossils or crap that you’d buy at Target. Those are just like any other item at Target and likely non-negotiable.
What is the difference between quartz and coaxial watches?
I am thinking about buying an OmegaSeamaster but don’t know if it is worthy to pay extra for the coaxial version
A quartz is electronic and battery powered. It uses a quartz crystal as a time base. The watch is as accurate as the crystal and a quality crystal can be very accurate.
A coaxial watch is mechanical, with gears and springs. The term ‘coaxial’ refers to a gear configuration. A mechanical watch can be very accurate as well if it is built with high standards.

What are the most popular brand names in Bangkok?
I like AE, Gaps, Armani, Aero for clothes. And what about backpacks, purses? for me, i do like Coach, Nine West, but is it true that Bangkokian people prefer GUESS?
Please i need some nice answers no negative or judge on me.
Yes, Thais love GUESS. Every time I’m at the mall with my Thai girlfriend she has to go in a GUESS outlet, and it is always packed with Thai girls. Marc Jacobs is also popular right now. Many girls at my university carry Marc Jacobs bags and one Thai friend asked me to bring her back some authentic Marc Jacobs merchandise from America, while I was visiting home.
Is there a Marc Jacobs outlet in Seattle somewhere? Or are there stores that sell it?
Unfortunately there is not a Marc Jacobs store or outlet location in the Seattle area.
But yes, the department stores sell Marc Jacobs clothing/accessories. I know Macy’s and Nordstrom definitely has Marc Jacobs items … And while I haven’t been there, I am assuming Neiman Marcus in Bellevue probably carries Marc Jacobs as well.
I am looking for some expensive name brand jewelry, clothes, ext… can any one give me a couple names?
Please give me as many names as possible. thank you so much guys.

Just bought a prada dress from ebay — which i won for £50.00 which was also it’s reserve price.
The seller said she paid £400.00 for it.
The dress looks great but i need to know for sure if it’s fake.
Any help would be much appreciated xxx
It has a prada tag on it but still not sure if the tag is real
Take it to a Prada boutique or to a store which sells Prada. Large stores have sales associates who are trained in their big designers like Prada, Chanel etc. They should be able to tell you.
How do I get a replacement part for my Prada eyeglasses?
What I need specifically is a hinge that connects the left frame piece to the front of the frame. This piece broke and is Prada specific. The frame is model vpr07h. The needed hinge is silver in color.
Lenscrafters sell Prada brand…they will be able to order the part for you, if it is still available.
Hopefully there is a Lenscrafters in your area…check your phonebook.

Charity Jewelry? <3?
I was just wondering if you knew of any type of jewelry that supports charity? I was thinking about the CartierLovebracelets, however…I don’t have that much money to spend. Please could you post a link, and it could be obtainable without getting it online.
Just another quick question, do you know of a good store that sells a bracelet that says “Love” or “Hope” or “Dream?” Or a necklace that has a crystal heart? Not expensive, and in the price range of $10-$100.
Thank you ever so much!
I have a few pieces of jewellery that are pretty inexpensive, but really nice. I bought them through e-bay and they support breast cancer. They are very cute. There is also a way to support African women, that site is… Www.uniteforsight.org
There is also a store called Charity village. The website for that is charityvillage.com. Another site is www.theangelpendant.com, and also you can check the world vision website. I hope this helps you at least a little. Thanks for supporting the charities!
Could anyone find me a cheap alternative to this bracelet ..?
