Best face makeup remover ?
I currently use philosophy purity to remove all of my face makeup. I like it because if I use makeup remover wipes it will irritate my face. I normally get oily on my t-zone and I'm acne prone. So does anyone have any recommendations on face makeup removers? I just want to try something different.  I also have acne scars, does anyone have any recommendations on any products that will help with that? Any skin care products from cleansers (currently use nude), moisturizers (currently using Clinique), toners, exfoliator, masks. Anything will help thanks 😊

Spring 2015 Collections
So I've seen a couple of threads for specific Spring 2015 launches (MUFE 50 Shades, Nars, etc). I thought it would be cool to post any and all new collection releases/launches in the same thread. I was searching around trying to find the newest stuff and scout out my next purchases. Here's what I've found so far:   Dior Spring 2015 - Kingdom of Colors (Images from A Bit Of Blusher)     Guerlain Spring 2015 (Images from Rouge Deluxe) Isn't this collection so cute?!?!

Subscription box photo sharing
I've been on the Ipsy waiting list, but still look at the thread. I thought we could have a shared thread from all the subscription boxes (including non-beauty ones likes underpants and lifestyle such as Wantable and POPSugar). That way we can live vicariously through each others goodies!   (I know there are unboxing videos on YouTube, but I do not have the patience to sit through a five minute video about someone apologizing for the state of their hair. And I know there are blogs where I can see photos, but everyone usually gets different items in their boxes)

Deals too good to pass Up!
The only thing I love more than shopping is getting a great deal.  I've created a website, with the same name as this thread (minus spaces and the exclamation point), to share my passion with more people.  If you share here and want to keep the deal exclusive to BT viewers, just write for BT only in the post.   I will heart every deal I see .  If your deal does not have a heart from me, I have not seen it yet.  A heart with no comment means I already had your deal on my site or am not planning on listing it (I may already have a better offer or another possible reason).   Should I use your deal, I will thank you here and mention that it was "shared on BT" on my site.  Thanks again to everyone who shares!    If you find something full priced that is new and awesome, share it here.   http://community.sephora.com/t5/Sephora-com/Spring -Summer-2015-Found-in-the-Wild-quot-New-quot/m-p/1 ...

Kat Von D Everlasting Liquid Lipstick
Hey guys! Have you tried the Everlasting Liquid Lipsticks from Kat Von D? I'm curious to know if they dry out your lips since it does have a matte finish. Would applying lip balm beforehand help with the dry feeling? I'm hoping it's not a product that will make my lips feel dry the entire time I have it on because that bothers me so much!! Any pros and cons would be helpful!

Wondering: Returning to Store after a Bad Experience
So I'm wondering if anyone's ever done this: 1) Went to Store A and had a bad experience. 2) Went to Store B and bought stuff. 3) Went back to Store A carrying the purchased products from Store B. 4) Spoke to anyone at Store A and said that they just lost out on this sale and more, then showed them your bag of products.

Marc Jacobs Le Marc Lip Crème Lipsticks?
I need swatches!!! As I see the new collection fly out of stock online, I've been scouring the internet for swatches to get a better feel of how the shades look. Most of them also look to be multiple shades of pink on the Sephora site, which doesn't seem to match up with the shade descriptions provided. Can anyone share their experiences so that, you know, I'm hopefully not compelled to get 18 out of 20 of them?

Exercise Log
I know we have a thread where we' talk about being healthier and such, and much like the challenges for makeup, this will be a challenge for exercise. Today I finally decided "Enough of this slugging around."        I just finished one mile  at a 3 mile speed and switching to 2.5 once in a while.    If you're starting this journey with me, please check out (I hope Malday doesn't mind me calling the thread this) - the sister thread. Here you will find healthy recipes, AND delicious as well. I'll be including some vegan/vegetarian recipes mainly.   http://community.sephora.com/t5/Off-Topic/The-Reci pe-Thread/m-p/1845978/highlight/true#M101081   So I won't title this 30 day challenge, but I will aim for 30 days and keep going from there, hopefully.   Here's an image of some stretches provided by the lovely ShannonAlexis:

Come Join Me For 28 (or so) Days of Red!
Ladies, in the spirit of February being the dead of winter, let's bring some extra warmth to BT.   I've noticed many ladies mention over the past few months that they lack the confidence or comfort level to rock a red lip.

Q. Normal on the cheeks, oily but flaky on the t-zone... help!
Hey everyone! I have good, dewy skin on the cheeks however I can never find a cream that is good for my skin type. My skin literally covers both ends of the spectrum. I've tried Ole Henrikson's sheer transformation cream and while it felt amazing on my cheeks, my t-zone, specifically my nose, was still flaking like no tomorrow but it was still a bit oily. It's very frustrating because at the same time, I get breakouts approximately once a month in my t-zone area and my forehead tends to be quite oily. Anyone have skin care advice/tips as well as suggestions on what creams/moisturizers have worked for them? I live in Canada so our temperature fluctuates throughout the year. Thank you!

Healthy Glow, Light to medium coverage
Hello! I finally found myself at Sephora after years of not caring about makeup, but lately I am getting tired of my dull , lifeless skin . I am a bit on the dry side, and fair, with a little redness around my nose and cheeks (looks like sunburn). I would like a nice healthy, kind of dewey look. I bought the tarte bb cream and tarte full coverage airbrush powder. In the store I thought my skin looked good, but since I've been using it at home my skin looks dull and kind of cakey. I moisturize every morning and night and have tried using elf's mineral primer and laura mercier primer.. no change. I need a light to medium coverage. What would you recommend? I was thinking of the cover fx illuminating primer and powder.. Should I change foundation?

Custom Makeover
Despite being a guy, I've always been in love wiht makeup, but haven't really gone too deep due to the social stigma behind it. Now that I'm older, I'm feeling braver and wanted to start investing in makeup, while also getting my first makeover. However, due to embarrassment, I was wondering if the makeover could be done in private, or at least in a covered area of the store.

Full coverage foundation for dry skin
I've always tended toward lighter coverage foundations, but lately I've been making my way through my sample stash and I realize I also really like the more flawless look that full coverage gives.  But the ones I've tried so far are incredibly matte and seem to dry my already dry and sensitive skin out further, even when I use a hydrating primer and more hydrating products on top.   Are there any fuller coverage concealers that have more of a dewy look and that don't feel as drying?
