Comparing multiple primers/blushers/etc - without buying lots of different ones.

I have a friend who is a bit of a makeup junkie.

She's started to feel guilty about buying gazillions of blushers/primers/whatever that she buys.

So she's started a Facebook group to discuss makeup, and is posting "here are 4 primers that I bought and this is which is the best".

It's certainly cheaper than buying and comparing myself.

I'm allowed to link if it's not "mine", right?

Yes! Yes I think you are allowed.

And it's a fantastic group isn't it?

southeastastra Sun 28-Jun-15 22:42:39

will stick to makeupalley

Trills Sun 28-Jun-15 22:42:44

It's a bit overexcited in there at the moment because it's new, I expect it will calm down after a few days grin

I've shared on my FB as well for all my RL friends.

I figure the more people there, the better the recommendations will be.

Hopefully you'll love it Joy!

But umm bear with me because it's only 24 hours old. I can only ramble so much wink

Just joined! Yaaaaaay! Thanks for the speedy acceptance!

Baies Sun 28-Jun-15 23:21:12

Ah thanks for joining. Hope you like it. It's fun and informative so far... I just needed more product junkies and well, here you are!

suze28 Sun 28-Jun-15 23:28:52

I've just joined too! Quick question though - moat groups are closed. Is there any specific reason why this is open? I'm not sure how I feel about all on my fb seeing my makeup /double cleansing obsessions on their feed!

Baies Sun 28-Jun-15 23:31:49

Hmm I've not thought about that? I think I made it public so that people could see it and join? ( err did I mention I was a technophobe? Good job I know about make up! ) is that not the case?

I can close it if it doesn't make any difference

suze28 Sun 28-Jun-15 23:35:24

Maybe post in the group and see what the consensus is?
If you did close the group people could still search, read the description and then request to join.

Baies Sun 28-Jun-15 23:37:33

I've closed it. You're right, it didn't need to be public. Not that your double cleansing method wouldn't be of great interest to all your friends and family, of course grin

Cocolepew Sun 28-Jun-15 23:39:56

Quickest add ever! shock

suze28 Sun 28-Jun-15 23:40:27

I doubt half of them have heard of CH and double cleansing. My sister is still using make up wipes. Shock horror! I soon advised her to sort herself out wink

Baies Sun 28-Jun-15 23:59:02

I've typed the words ' DONT USE WIPES ' about seven times today grin

TheySayIamparanoid Mon 29-Jun-15 00:11:40

I joined too, am now going to spend far too long on the perfume links!

Baies Mon 29-Jun-15 00:58:45

Ah, I've tasked a friend with the perfume stuff and there will hopefully be a perfume swap shop in the near future. I own eleventy million bottles of the stuff but my friend is definitely the expert when it comes to notes and bases and where to buy unusual scents

Baies Mon 29-Jun-15 00:59:16

And thanks a million for joining. I appreciate it

downgraded Mon 29-Jun-15 08:11:30

Perfume swap shop?!?!?!

You had me at "hopefully" smile

But I'm just placemarking for now as work have blocked fb...

Baies Mon 29-Jun-15 08:13:22

Really? What sort of a workplace is THAT?!

I like the idea of a perfume swap shop. My friend is very knowledgeable about all,things scent ( I'm not, I just own lots of it ) so we are going to chat and set something up. After all, who doesn't like getting stuff in the post?

IPokeBadgers Mon 29-Jun-15 09:48:47

I've joined too....I love make-up!

Baies Mon 29-Jun-15 09:57:22
