The Friday Forum - March 6

Because it's Friday, it's time for The Friday Forum. The forum is devoted to what you have to say about anything related to beauty. Let's chat! Are you using a fabulous product and want to sing its praises? Tell us about it! Did you find a beauty product disappointing? Tell us why! Do you have questions others might be able to answer? We can help! Want to talk about skin care? I'm game! Just use the comments. We have busy weekends and slow ones on the forum. Either way, I always enjoy hearing from you.

As usual, I will share beauty bits with you over the weekend. I'll put them in the comments, so check for free shipping offers and other treats from beauty companies.

The microphone is yours!

Update at 5:30 pm: About once/week, usually in the middle of the night, someone posts a comment that has nothing to do with my post and embeds a hyperlink. I delete these as soon as I receive notice of them - usually around 4:45 am. The comments are usually advertising, but they can direct readers to sites put up by bad guys. If you ever see one of these before I get to it to delete it, do not click on the link embedded within the comments.

When readers leave Web site names that are related to the post and not hyperlinks, I leave them up. For example, advice to try That is not a hyperlink (underlined and clicking takes you to the site). You can type the URL into your location bar if you choose. These are OK. I usually check them out to make sure - if they are unfamiliar to me. Any hyperlinks I post are safe.

That's a weird cat, huh? Decided to give the dogs equal time this week!

I am really loving MEG 21! I wrote about it recently. The Advanced Formula is incredible on eyes, face, and neck. I just got the Hand Treatment. Think I'll do before and after photos to show you.

I ordered mine from The discount was good, and they sent samples!

Just went to Victoria Secret store today and was pleasantly surprised by their lipsticks and lipglosses selections. While I hardly ever wear lipstick I picked a nice raspberry pink shade called Be Mine. It is a beautiful color (though im still getting used to having something so bright on my lips) and the formula so creamy and non-drying! It was 12 dollars but I had a 10 off coupon :)

I should go there more! It seems like every time I go, they are wiped out of the colors I want. Thanks for letting us know, Anna. I will search out the color.

Where did you get a $10 coupon? I want in on that action. :) Qualifies for the Frugal Ferret feature I'm getting ready to start.

Actually, VS was out of a lot of lip glosses today too. I was really wanting to try a coral shade (never had coral anything in my life!) but had to settle for lipstick instead :) I got the heart shaped "free panty/ $10 off coupon" in mail this week. I usually skip the offer, since they have a minimum purchase but this time there was no limit and you could pick any panty of any color (as long as it was under 8 bucks). I am not a credit card holder with VS, so I am pretty sure its a general coupon they send to everyone on their mailing list.

Only thing I got in e-mail from Victoria's Secret was $15 off a $100 purchase. And greater discounts on larger purchases. Lucky you!

I guess someone tried to give me an example of a hyperlinked comment overnight. The text of the comment from an Asian blogger said, "pleasure to find such a good artical! please keep update!!" It went to a Chinese Web site that I couldn't figure out, but I don't think the content would have interested you (wink!).

Last call at LORAC for the On-Screen Duos. Only $7 for Powder Highlighter and Cream Eye Shadow/Liner! These are a great deal!
