Hourglass Veil Primer
Hi everyone.  I did a bit of a search and didn't see any recent posts addressing this so I thought I'd check and see if anyone had any new information or solutions.  I love the veil mineral primer, but my present 1oz. bottle and several small samples I've used have had an issue of getting watery and separated.  When I take the pump off of the 1oz bottle there is thick, almost clumpy, primer that clings to the walls of the glass, and then thin liquid sits in the bottom and gets dispensed when you push the pump.  I've tried shaking it (LOTS of shaking) and that hasn't seemed to help.  There's a significant difference in the performance of the product when I get use just the liquidy part, vs. if I actually scoop out some of the most solid/thick part from inside the bottle.     It's a great product, but it's almost becoming more work that it's worth.  Has anyone that's had this issue in the past get any response from Hourglass or find a solution elsewhere?   Thanks so much!

Help! My Skin is Parched and Super-Sensitive!
I am in desperate need of a new skincare plan. I have a few ideas so far: Investing in the Clinique Sonic System Purifying Cleansing Brush! Clé de Peau Beauté masks! But...I need a great moisturizer to use daily. I am torn between the Philosophy Take a Deep Breath Oil-Free Energizing Oxygen Gel Cream Moisturizer, and the Clinique Moisture Surge Intense For Very Dry to Dry Combination Skin. I am very pale, with super-parched, tight skin. I have very, very sensitive skin and allergies to most plants, flowers, botanicals, and artificial chemicals. I do not break out easily, but suffer from skin redness when it gets irritated or dry, due to air pollution, impurities, etc. Both have received wonderful reviews, so I am hoping someone can provide me with a bit of a breakdown as to any reactions/differences one would notice between the two products. Thanks for your help!

Blush samples
I recently bought NARS blush in Orgasm due to so many raves but I didn't care for it. It had too much shimmer for me. There are several other ones i'd like to try, but I don't want to commit to buy and I also don't want to buy, buy, buy and have to return. Can Sephora make you a blush sample?

October Makeup Challenges
I'm not sure how many of you remember the makeup challenge posts, but I want to start some new ones for October! With Halloween just around the corner (yes, a month is just around to corner to me) I thought this would be a good way to practice any potential makeup/costume ideas. I'd like to post a new theme every week, but there are no deadlines so feel free to join in whenever and show off your costume makeup skills   Feel free to suggest ideas in this thread, but I'm thinking with the RHPS MAC collection release that might be a good first challenge, and I'd like to have another week with a "random" theme (as in whatever you want!).   I'll make the first post tomorrow if you're all interested

Anyone try the new Dior 5 Couleurs Palettes?
So I'm still on the hunt for what eyeshadow I want to get next, considering I still have credit from a recent return I can burn through. I'm considering a second Marc Jacobs palette (either the Dreamer or the Night Owl). I think pretty much everyone knows I've been on the fence about Vice 3 for weeks. I'm waiting on reviews of the Lorac Mega Pro when it's released this Wednesday. I'm waffling on a Charlotte Tilbury quad or a Chanel Les 4 Ombres. In my dream world I'd just splurge on a couple of Tom Ford quads but I think it's a bit too much to spend on myself until the holidays... and I'm also interested in hearing a little bit about the new Dior 5 Couleurs palettes that were released this fall! I know, I know, so much on my list, but really I'm only intending to buy one for now. Decisions are hard!   Anyway, I swatched Trafalgar in store last week and I really thought the textures were quite nice and the colors look beautiful. I'm also interested in palette 456 Jardin (it looks gorgeous), but I haven't seen it in stores yet. Does anyone around here on BT have either of these palettes? If so, how do you like them? How is the wear and texture? I don't own any Dior eyeshadows, let alone any of the new palettes, so I'd love all the information I can get.

What was your very First purchase at Sephora and Why take the plunge?
We've all been there...a bag full of unused or disappointing make up from the drug store, which I still like but without the ability to try before buy you end up with a lot of fails. Then you find Sephora and wonder, is the price worth it? You try a few things, you like a few things, you see the price tag and tell yourself: "Eh, I can go with ramen noddles for a week to afford this." And then you buy it. What was your first purchase? Why did you choose it? I always like hearing other stories like this. Share on!

Tarte or Bare Minerals?
I'm looking for a new foundation, and after swatching a bunch of options in store I've narrowed it down to either Tarte's Amazonian Clay foundation or Bare Minerals Bareskin foundation. I like that Bare Minerals has a little higher SPF and my wallet likes the price better, but Tarte matched my skin just a little better (though the difference is probably only noticeable under bright light) and it felt a little more natural on my skin. Which one should I go for?
