Skincare for adult acne
  I am 35 years old and while I'm begin to get concerned about mild signs of aging, my biggest concern is the acne and bumps I have on my cheeks, chin, and the lower side of my jaw.  I use retin-A, and plan to continue doing so, but I've had a hard time finding a cleanser and toner, and perhaps foundation, that works well for me (too many products out there!).  Recommendations?

Will tanning change my skins undertone?
This summer my face has always been lighter than the rest of my body because I wear foundation almost every time I go somewhere since i'm too self conscious not to unless i'm going swimming then I don't care as much. The foundation I use is Estee Lauder double wear which has some spf in it so my face doesn't ever tan. I didn't really think it was much of a problem since I rarely ever go outside in the summer as much as I used to till the other day when I was outside at a festival all day and my whole body got super tan and my face didn't so now it looks really weird. I don't know if it will work this way but if I were to go tanning outside or in a booth to even my face color then when I feel tan enough go get a darker shade of foundation will my skin undertone still be the same like such as if I am cool,warm, neutral or olive? Like if I now wear the shade ecru 1n2 in double wear would the neutral still be the same and then I would just have to go up a shade or two or could my whole undertone and everything change?

anyWould anyone be interested in joining a new/lightly used item TSB? Requirement of 500 hearts.
Spoiler (Highlight to read) Guidelines: Trade items that are equal in value and brand quality or better. For example, Dior for Guerlain would be a good trade, as would Too Faced for Tarte. Do not trade Dior for Tarte. Do not take more than you put in. Please ensure your trade is adding value to the box. Trade full sized items for full sized items. Do not take all of one category from the box. For example, do not take all the palettes or masks. If you’re not sure if an item is appropriate, post the item and ask the group. Allowed in the box:  Mid to high end products (think brands sold at Sephora, The Bay, Nordstrom, etc). Tools/Brushes/Cases/Bags as long as they are clean Anything that is sealed (as long as it fits with the other guidelines) Skin care items in tubes & bottles. Jars only allowed if it's sealed or unopened. Keep non-beauty related items to a minimum (please do not overload the box with makeup bags, cases, etc). Packaging & Shipping All participants must provide a tracking number for their shipment, posted to the thread upon receipt. Package things carefully (bubble wrap or tissue paper if possible) and put things in labeled Ziploc bags. Try to leave the TSB in better condition than you found it Items that are more fragile (like perfume bottles) should be bubble wrapped individually Calculating Values: New items: full price Clearance items: full original price unless they are long-term residents of the clearance section (i.e. OCC lip tars in original packaging) Used 1x or swatched: 90% value (original price x 0.90) Lightly used: 80% value (original price x 0.80)  This applies when an item was used more than once but at least 90% of the product is remaining. Deluxe samples: calculate based off largest size available of said product. For example, if a deluxe sample is 0.5oz, and the full size is 2 oz and worth $60, then the deluxe sample is worth $15.    These must be new, untested, unswatched. Courtesies: Don't put in anything unsanitary! (any product that you “dunk” a wand into or you dip your fingers into (like lip gloss or mousse blush) if they’re not new and unused. These cannot be sanitized.  Same thing goes for rollerballs. Post a picture and write info of what you took and left, with their condition and value – this way members can weigh in on the trades before shipping Include close up, open photos of any items that will be sealed that you cannot see the color through. This includes lipsticks, palettes, blushes, etc. No reserving items in the box for others and don’t ask to have any items reserved for you - this is unfair to others participating Don't swatch items from the box even they are swatched or used!! Swatched/used items must be labeled as such. All opened items must be cleaned/sanitized prior to their addition to the box Sanitizing consists of spraying the item with a makeup sanitizer, or making your own with half parts 70% alcohol and water. Try not to put in LARGE full sized items, like large bottles over 8 oz. This box becomes very full, making it is harder for the person repacking and forces them to take something they may not want or use. Exceptions can be made if someone really wants the item Must post photos of all swaps and wait for approval from the thread before sending the box to the next recipient. The box coordinator and 50% of participants should give the OK for your trade. Give the group 24 hours to review your trades and provide feedback.  Please contribute mid to high-end beauty products only. No drugstore items or Sephora brand. If you have questions or you are unsure of an item, ask! ***If an item in the box has been damaged in transit, please contact me as to what to do with it.

THE VISEART THREAD
Thought I'd start a thread just for Viseart since so many of us LOVE them.   I love to encourage a small brand as opposed to a brand where you pay for the name. The eye shadow quality can't be beat! ************************************************** ******* WHERE TO BUY Sephora Muse Beauty Pro Beauty Bay Beautylish Alcone Frends Beauty ************************************************** ******* COMING SOON   New eye shadow palette Bijoux Royal Pre-order now on Muse Beauty Pro - On Sephora.COM Sept 9th. Spoiler (Highlight to read) Blush Palettes 3 Blush Palettes 1 Highlight and Sculpting Available for pre-order now at Muse Beauty Pro / Ships August 8th Spoiler (Highlight to read)     Price breakdown for those interested Spoiler (Highlight to read) Saw this on Facebook a while back and thought I'd add it here.   A 12 color Viseart Eyeshadow Palette is $80 USD (before pro discount). Each eyeshadow pan is 2 grams and valued at approx. $6 ($3.00 per gram).   MAC has reduced the price of their single eyeshadows refills from $10 USD to $6 USD each. So 12 colors at the new reduced price would be $72 USD (before pro discount). Add the $8 USD empty palette to store them and we're back to $80 USD.   EXCEPT: Each MAC eyeshadow pan is only 1.3 grams ($4.62 per gram). You're getting only 15.6 grams of product, as opposed to the 24 grams of eyeshadow in the Viseart palette. That's a loss of over 8 grams of product.   FINAL ANALYSIS: It would cost $119 USD for MAC to duplicate the Viseart palette (24 grams of MAC eyeshadow at $4.62 per gram and $8 for the palette).

The Question Thread: Because not all questions need their own thread.
I'm making this thread because I simply don't want to create a new thread for every little question that pops into my head, nor do I think that most questions need a separate topic.    I had previously just dropped whatever random question that came to mind into the Random Thread (thanks jemly!), but I had been thinking about starting this for a while and figured I'd give it a shot to see if it could be of any use.    I'm well aware that the people who could best utilize this thread will likely remain completely oblivious to it, but if it can consolidate even a small fraction of questions -- and maybe even generate some interesting conversations both beauty and non-beauty related -- that seems worthwhile.    Official thread mascots: The Curious Puppies.   Official thread anti-mascot: Lucille Bluth.   It probably would've been wise of me to have a relatively inane question to use as an example and kick this thread off...    Well, since I apparently don't have any pressing questions, I'll start with this two-parter:   What's your favorite drug store nail polish shade AND which official mascot puppy is your favorite? Bonus/Extra Credit: What's it's name?

Welcome back to the deal sharing fun!   Deals shared here may also be posted to my blog (same name as the thread) unless you write for BT only. If I share your deal, I will always thank you here. I will heart every deal I see (without an outside or cheat link) to acknowledge it. Beautytalk (the forum) does not allow outside links . A heart with no comment means I already have the deal or am deciding not to list it.    Please list the retailer (without the link or cheat link; dot com) if it is not mentioned in the picture. Mods come in more often when they see any type of link.    Thanks for sharing (original deals and repeats are welcome)! Please also share any deal haul you want, especially mystery gifts.    Discussion is encouraged. A lot of questions come with certain deals or retailers. When I see questions I can answer, I will respond (unless the poster consistently ignores me or someone else already answered the complete question). I read all the main posts (so no need to tag me). If you're replying to a post that is not near the top of the thread and want me or a specific person to see it, please tag us.  If you're posting about something on sale at Sephora, please share it here:   http://community.sephora.com/t5/Hauls/Sephora-Sale s-Section-Get-it-Now/m-p/2122832#M44949

College girl who never wore makeup?
So I'm 19 and about to be a sophomore in college. I only know how to use lipstick and even my mother hates it (not that I'm concerned about it). But the problem is, I don't know who to go to or where to go to or how to start. Whether I should start out small with tinted moisturizer or something else. I've been watching youtube videos but Im more of a kinetic learner. Plus I do need help since I want to pick out just a shade lighter than my skin tone.

Will there be an Epic Rewards 2016?
I know last Epic Rewards turned into an epic fiasco so I'm just curious to know if sephora has done away with the epic rewards program all together or if we can expect one this year.

Caudalie
I have been an avid lover of this brand for a quite now but it seems lately like the prices are getting jacked up or they are dropping products all together. For one, the Vinoperfect Radiance Serum now says it cannot be shipped to Canada, why? I have ordered it dozens of times and will be absolutely crushed if I can no longer get it.... If someone could please shed some light on this that would be great.

Mascara Sensitivity?
Hey guys! So I've been wearing makeup since 7th grade (I'm a senior in high school now) and have never really had an issue with mascara until now. Now, it seems like, if I have mascara on past 3 hours, my eyes start becoming very irritated. It does not matter if the mascara is high end or drugstore I still get irritation. I especially have an issue with Benefit's They're Real! that stuff caused irritation almost instantly. Because of this, I have began wearing false lashes, but the problem is I cannot coat my real lashes in mascara to make them blend in with the false ones. Can someone PLEASE help me choose a mascara for sensitive eyes? Under $30 would be really helpful.

CONCEALER
Hey guys!!! I need some serious help. I've been looking for a concealer that's light enough for me, I'm usually the lightest shade in any foundation and usually all concealers are too dark. Kat Von D has white out but it's sold out everywhere. Does anyone know when it'll be in stock??? I feel like I've been waiting forever. Does anyone know of any alternatives?

Anti-aging cream for 20s?
I am 24, almost 25. I am wondering, do you recommend anti-aging creams for someone my age? I want to get a headstart on wrinkles, but I do not want to damage my skin or anything by starting Retinol type products/anti-aging products at too young of an age. If you do recommend it, which type or what should I look for?   Thanks!

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)

New brand Farmacy - feedback and discussion
So I noticed this new line of skincare products that both Sephora and QVC is carrying. Has anyone here used any of their products or personally heard good/bad things about the brand?

HELP!!! I struggle with dry, dehydrated, flaky, sensitive, redness prone skin. I also have eczema.
I struggle with dry, dehydrated, flaky, sensitive, redness prone skin. I also have eczema. Can anyone help me with a skin care routine? I am going insane and broke trying to find the right products. I'm looking for recommendations for a whole routine: cleanser, toner/essence, chemical exfoliants (not scrubs or polishes) treatments (serums and oils), eye cream, and finally a moisturizer.i would also appreciate mask recommendations too; as well as, any advice on how to combat constant chapped, flaky lips. Thank you to anyone who takes the time to respond. Please know, a head of time, that I am truly grateful!
