Givenchy Confetti Powder relase?
Hi everyone, I searched everywhere for this answer but can't seem to find one. So please point me in the right direction if this has been asked already!   Does anyone know if Sephora will carry the gorgeous shimmery powder in the confetti case (part of the Spring 2015 collection)? I know they are basically sold out everywhere and Sephora is probably my only hope in Canada (I don't think Holt Renfrew or The Bay or Murale carries Givenchy makeup...just the fragrances).   If so... might any one have an idea of a release date?

Anastasia Beverly Hills Artist Palette
Hi ! i wanna ask about the Anastasia Beverely Hills Artist Palette. Is this palette available in Canada's  Fairview Mall in Pointe-Claire  ? cz the Store availability online service mentions that the palette is available in the store , but a friend told me that she went and it was not available.

What Kind of Tissue?
I have several non-peel facial mask products that say to leave on for X-minutes and then tissue off .  What kind of tissue do they mean?  Certainly not the Kleenex-type nose tissues.  I've seen some discussions about oil-blotting tissue, (wrapping) tissue paper, or rice paper or other oil blotting papers, and even toilet seat covers (!).    But I've never seen anything that expressly addresses what to use for these masks.  Is there a product out there without powder in them, or are we suppose to make our own?  Thanks!

I agree with Vanillammm, "tissue off" simply means "wipe off".  You can use whatever (washcloth, cotton pads, muslin, etc..) works best for you. see post
Bare Minerals Complexion Rescue - shade
Hi,   I got Complexion Rescue in Natural 05, and right now it's perfect for my skin shade...It just blends into my skin and I feel like I am wearing nothing. I don't know if that's because the shades aren't not too heavy or because it actually matches the color of my skin. However, in a month or so, I will start to have a tan and i will definitely look much darker than now (I tan pretty easily), will i need to get a drake shade like tan 07, or is it way too dark than natural 05? if yes, what shade do you recommend? Or do you think that Natural 05 will do just fine even when i am tanned?

APRIL FAVES & RAVES !
WHEEEE. april was fun. i'll post mine here but i'm going to add a pic later, because that is fun too.   basically, i got super lucky during the sale and have been super in love / obsessed with what i wound up with. i was thinking...i can't leave most of it off ! and unusually for me, my april faves was entirely about makeup, as my skincare stayed the same.   i finally took the plunge and bought a powder. and i'm so glad i did. NARS light reflecting loose powder has given me skin of satin. within a week of purchasing, i had an event where i was photograph a lot, and this powder was MAGIC. i actually had it with me for touch ups and such, and turned a lot of people onto it, which i think is an endorsement in and of itself ! NARS illuminator copacabana . yes, i had a scare when i had a rash-like reaction pop up after about 10 days of regular use. i had to stop using for about 5 days, but i'm in the clear and so is the illuminator. i think it was a food allergy reaction (womp womp). i've heard people say they think the NARS illuminators are not great for day as they're so shimmery, but copa, on me at least, is very natural. i don't feel overdone at all, it's easily  blendable  but then dries down and stays. adore, happy i went with this instead of the multiple which i think would be slightly more obvious ?? URBAN DECAY single eyeshadow in free love. in the pan it looks a bit outrageous, but on my lids it looks remarkably natural. it's also taught me i've been going for the wrong shades when i want a naturalish lid look--warm pinks and peaches rather than ANYTHING that resembles yellow.  SEPHORA COLLECTION contour eye pencil / waterproof. this range of eyeliners is awesome. i got strawberry macaroon and i adore it. i'll get more. STILA stay all day liquid lipsticks in tesoro (red-orange) and amore (desaturated plum). i continue my love affair of this range of liquid lipsticks and purchased these 2 colors this month. and they are bomb. evidence of my love for them is in the WAYWT thread. SHAKAI body lotion in sandalwood . smells sooooo good. costs $6 at hippie grocery store win. TOKYO MILK DARK, arsenic. i originally got this in the spring of 2011 in a small town in texas, of all places. it was instant love and intoxication. i wore it exclusively for probably 2 years (it lasts a lot time with regular use!). i kept the bottle around but never repurchased until this month. this is my favorite from the line (which has a lot of properly amazing scents). but i think it's one of the more unsung heros (behind tainted love--which i also own--and everything & nothing--which i considered purchasing because i loved the name of it). i'll add more if any come to me and will post a pic too, later   what about you guys ??

30 day lipstick challenge
For those of us that love lipsticks and have several of them, do you rotate or reach for the same few? I wear some more than others. And some have been neglected a lot (although they are very pretty). I thought of holding myself to wearing a new lipstick everyday for 30 days. Lets see how long this will last. If I last 30 days, maybe I will go longer.  Ha...lets see if I last 2 weeks.   Anybody else?  I am quite excited about it....   Spoiler (Highlight to read) Day 1, 11/10/14 - Maybelline Vivids in Vivid Rose.

Hey Beauties- We have ALOT of threads around here for Tom Ford products.

Happy Shopping!

Foundation Help
I'm attending my husbands ball in June and I need help with a foundation.   the ball is in the middle of the summer in the desert. It'll need to last like 6-7 hours and look good in photos. I'm currently shade 0 in Bobbi Brown and W-1-2 in loreal. I can also wear I'm pure for sure in benefit. I have the issue of all those foundations becoming an oily mess after 2-3 hours. I have quite a few discoloraed marks from breakouts too. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

i like to look at the international Sephora sites to drool over things I can't get (or that I pray N. America will get eventually). Found these two items today.  I wonder if the Oil Infusion is a dupe for the YSL??  I hope we get these eventually.

Searching for a new cream blush
Hi guys! I haven't posted in a while. I'm looking for a cream blush with good staying power-in a rosy pinkish shade that's natural and definitely not peachy.  Right now I'm using YSL Creme de Blush in 02 Powdery Rose, but it will expire soon, and I think they discontinued the product.  Any ideas for a good replacement?  Thanks!

Akward Sephora moments
So the other day (two days ago), I went to go pick up my Nars Outer Limits but I also wanted another of the new MJ Highliners... so I asked for it. And I think my Sephora has two managers? But my favorite one, Carla, wasn't there or was in the back so I talked to the other one with high authority. .. I asked her about the new high liners and told her how I wanted another one but that they weren't out on the floor, that I had bought the Orange Crush one and wanted more. So she started saying they don't have any, etc.. so I kept telling her "Oh.. but I bought one of the new ones the other day.. so I thought.." But she was basically saying they don't have them because those were left over from LAST year, lol. I was like "Oh I thought they were new" .. (they are, of course).. and I told her about the champagne one since it's the first one that popped in my head but she was like "OH, yeah, I know which ones they are but they're from last year, not new."  >_> I was like "Ohhhh okay, thanks..I'm.. going to go now and yeah, pick up my item on hold."   And I like.. side stepped away... lol. I think it's awkward when you walk in and ask for a new item and they don't know what you're talking about so you're both stuck in awkward limbo.. or like that that they claim it was a last year product and not new at all.

Thoughts on Paula's Choice?
Do you agree with her views on skincare products?  I'm on a hunt for my Summer night serum & moisturizer. I think I'm going to purchase the Perricone Blue Plasma even though it stinks so bad of fish & I hate fish. I've been researching products a lot and one of the sites I was on was Paula's Choice. She is not a fan of the serum... Actually the more I read through her "beautypedia" reviews, it seems like she's not a fan of a lot of products. I also got a feeling she was mainly trying to push her own products and Olay.  Examples:  - She's against treatment cleansers since it's just "washed down the drain". I have to disagree with this. When I use a treatment cleanser, although they can be drying, I do see improvement in my breakouts.  - Witch Hazel is bad. I find witch hazel to be an important ingredient when choosing a toner. She think it's just as bad as alcohol if not worse.    Products she gave a "poor" rating to:  - Anthony Logistic's Glycolic cleanser got a poor rating because it doesn't contain any glycolic acid.  - doctor dennis gross's A/B pads since we can just skip step 2 by simply splashing water on our face to deactivate step 1.  - Dior Capture Totale One Essential Serum because it's not a "miracle serum" since it's primarily just "water, slip agents, and alcohol" - ExfoliKate - Just about every Ole Henriksen product I love   - Origins Checks & Balances, Charcoal Mask & every other decent product from them - Most Murad products   I do agree with a few points she makes, like companies need to stop putting active ingredients in clear vials so the sun doesn't break down the properties of the treatment. Also jar packaging is a big no-no for her. I understand that some creams are too thick to be put in a pump, but what about those airless jars that Bosica & Dermadoctor are using? I hate sticking my fingers in jars & the air does break down the active ingredients over time...  Overall though, I don't think I'll be going to her site when I'm researching a new product I want to try.

Pixie, I get disturbed by the fact that silicone and it's derivatives are in practically EVERYTHING. It is surely the "hot" ingredient these days. Is it ok in moderation... see post
Golden Highlighter
I was hoping for some advice in finding a well pigmented, golden highlighter for summer. I picked up the MUFE Pro Sculpting Duo in #2 Golden during the VIB sale but found it either doesn't show up or looks a bit ...splotchy?   I'm debating exchanging it for NARS Jubilation but the reviews online aren't that great either so I'm open to suggestions!   For reference this would be strictly for night time, full face looks which is why I wanted something a bit more pigmented. I'm an NC30 in MAC, Vanilla Glow in Too Faced BB, and Bamboo Beige in Laura Mercier.   Thanks!

Q. Hanae Mori perfume sample help please!
Hello! I got a sample of a Hanae Mori perfume a while ago (either 2 or 3 months ago, I would say) and it doesn't say which one it is on the little white spray bottle it came in. It's not on My Purchases either as it appears to have been sent to me in lieu of another sample I asked for. Does anyone have any idea of which one it could be? I found a thread here with a possible answer but it's from a few years back HALP! Thank you! ^_^

Eye cream for mid 30s that doesn't cause milia
I am in my mid 30s and I decided to splurge on the Premier Cru eye cream from Caudalie because I love the line, but unfortunately, it caused me to have milia under both eyes within a week's use and I had to stop using it. I do not have any wrinkles yet, so I want to use a good preventative eye cream to preserve my skin. Overall, my skin is oily around t-zone and combination on other parts of the face. Should I buy the Cauldalie Vinoexpert serum for the eyes and use it on its own AM and PM without any eye cream? Or should I buy the Vinosource SOS eye cream which seems much lighter than the Premiere Cru? I am also open to trying other lines as long as the product is paraben free and comes in a tube or pump, no jar. Please advise. Thanks!

Heated Eyelash Curlers
Hey BT! I've been reading a bit about heated eyelash curlers and I'm starting to see a couple of people mention them on youtube. Has anyone here tried using one? If so, which one did you use? I've seen a couple of them sold by Sephora and then heard of others on the market as well. I've never been good with a typical eyelash curler and am wondering if this is something that could work for me.    Also, has there been any information about how safe they are? I am just wondering how safe something that is heated can be held that close to your eye.    Any insight anyone has would be greatly appreciated!
