Hey Beauties- We have ALOT of threads around here for Tom Ford products. I figured I'd start one thread where we can update each other on items as they come out or we see them available. For all my UK'ers, or people willing to pay for shipping from the UK, Harrods has Softcore and Nude Dip from the Fall collection available right now. Happy Shopping!
So lately, I've been a little crazy about Limited Editions. For example, I am really sad about not getting a hold of this Givenchy Confetti powder. I really want to be in on the next 'must have'…anyone have ideas/predictions of what will be the hottest limited editions coming up? Historically, which limited editions have been those that sold out and became collector's items? I think my collection is getting to the point where I want to start adding those special pieces and be ready for them. I think there was talk about the Estee Lauder Courreges Highlighter powder being an update of the Heat Wave, it's on pre-order on EL.com and quickly went out of stock on Sephora.
I've read varying opinions on the topic and wanted to "ask the experts." When should under eye concealer be applied? Before foundation? After? Before applying eye makeup - or after? The makeup experts I've had do my makeup for special events have applied the products in a different order than I normally do at home. So what's the best order for application - foundation, eye makeup then concealer????
I know we still have a few more hours until the 1st, but I thought I'd start us off, anyway! I got the email that the Shiseido Veiled Rouge lipstick I tried to buy earlier this week (but got a shadow shipped to me instead, lol) was back in stock, so I decided to try buying it again. Come on guys! Let's hope the second time for Skyglow is the charm What've you hauled or will be hauling this month?
Today I was lead on a wild goose chase to get 2 lippies from this collection since it sold out in the 5 minutes I wasn't stalking it during the online launch. So last night I called Macy's knowing it was only launching there and at MAC stores. I asked the associate if they were doing any kind of pre-sale or if I should get there early. She said no and there is no pre-order. Okay, that's fine. So my boyfriend drove me early this morning to Macy's and we stood outside and waited at the doors with a bunch of other people (it was freezing). So they let us in and the associate said the entire collection is sold out and goes, didn't anyone tell you about the pre-sale we had this morning? You were supposed to come in through the employee entrance. All of us were standing there stunned like, um.... no? So the associate tells everyone, "Well, Nordstrom just opened up down the street, too. You should check there." Which obviously Nordies didn't launch this collection at all! So the employees working this morning either don't really know their job and keep up on their product/collections or she was just trying to get people out of her face. So my boyfriend rushes me to a mall that is much farther away but has a Macy's and a freestanding MAC. I got 1 of the lippies I wanted at Macy's so I was pumped, then I hustled to the freestanding MAC. I kid you not, the employees were taking more phone orders than helping the customers standing right there. So they had the other lippie in stock but by the time they actually assisted me, it had sold out because of all of the phone orders and the girl in front of me snagged the last one. I'm just wondering when it became okay to help people that are on the phone before the customers who got their behinds up bright and early and are standing right in front of you!
Spoiler (Highlight to read) I have been using my Mia2 for a very long time. It's still working but seeing the new Smart Profile, I am curious to see if anyone who previously had a Mia2 converted to the SP. I have been using my Mia2 for a very long time.

Today as I am looking through the orders that are on the way to me I noticed that I ordered 2 more of the same product. One I have already (GA Brow Maestro-ordered same color, wanted to order a different one). And I placed two different orders for Glamglow Thirstycleanse! What a dumbo! Now both those orders will have to be returned...ugh! I just can't believe I did this considering I was checking and rechecking my orders. And yes...I ordered them all from Sephora! Go ahead laugh and tell me what I already know,...I am indeed an addict and a goofy one at that. I'm blaming it on the weather since I think it's causing more confusion than usual! Ok that and a serious lack of sleep...zzzzzzz (I wish!)
What do you ladies think of Chanel's Le Lift cream? My friend, who has incredibly flawless skin, said she is using it. She is my age between 20-24 years old. I just envy her how perfectly clear and clean and uni-toned her skin is.
Help! All my eye make up smudges on my lower lids. I've tried not using and using primer on my lids and lower lids. I've tried different drug store pencil, liquid, and gel liners like the Make Up Forever pencil, Stila waterproof liquid liner, Urban Decays 24/7 glide pencils, and EM cosmetics liquid liner. These are either waterproof and not. I go for a minimal look so I apply everything with a light hand. Even when I try tightlining it smudges. My mascara also smudges on my lower lids. I've used Urban Decays Perversion and Cover Girl's Lash Bloom. Within an hour of applying anything it smudges. I don't rub my eyes or anything. Am I Doing something wrong?

Hey everyone- First I'm terribly sorry if there is already a massive thread on here about this but I couldn't find it and my question is more specific so here it goess--- Before this brand/product was ever available online I used to drive down to Boston, Mass to the Sephora that carries Giorgio Armani's cosmetic line in store. I haven't gone for a while, but when I did, I would always obsess over "Luminous Silk" and purchased it once when I was there for a rouge event at that event there was a GA rep who matched me as a 4.25 which is the same match that the Sephora color IQ matches me with (which for me, the IQ never works out one day I am one IQ shade and the next month I'm another # so for me that isn't at all a fool proof method I'd rely on ) SOOO NOW THE --Problem WHICH IS- I had some doubts about the color that the rep at Sephora matched me with.. it just didn't "fit: SO when I got matched at Saks Fifth at the GA counter the GA counter manager seemed to clearly know her stuff seeing as she was the counter manager of GA..lol and SHE matched me as a 4.75 she was like "yep your 4.75 that's it end of story" kind of short didn't even put another shade on me to make sure...BUTT the shade seemed to match me fairly well and I ended up buying the 4.75 and used half of it and gave the rest to my mother months later because I had developed a "no foundation phase"...NOW just a few moths ago, when I was at the same Sephora that carries GA in the store....I clearly got drawn to the silk foundation again... I wanted to pick up another bottle of "luminous silk" and this awesome guy working at that Sephora told me to try the few shades out that I was unsure of, after I told him my dilemma and he even said he still gets confused about the shades.. SO..he gave me samples of shades 4.5..4.75...and 5. When I got home I put all 3 shade in swatches in a stripe on my arm and I couldn't figure out for the life of me which one had a cool/ pink undertone..or which one had a warm/yellow undertone..or which one of them had a neutral undertone,(MOST OF THE TIME FROM WORKING IN THE COSMETIC INDUSTRY A WHLE AGO AND LEARNING THIS TYPE OF STUFF, I CAN TELL WHAT UNDERTONE A FOUNDATION HAS) THE OTHER PROBLEM WAS - all three shades he gave me samples of somehow or another worked on my face as I recall but it was back in September so now I cant remember AND NOW that this stuff is online on Sephora.com, I just would like to order it online rather than having to go down to the Sephora that carries it in store CLEARLY THIS IS WHY I AM ASKING FOR YOUR HELP..LOL - one thing I know for sure is that I am in the 4-ish shade range or 5.0 because 4.5..4.75..and 5.0 worked for me a few months ago BUT then again I was matched twice as a 4.25 so I am just SO CONFUSED and hope you guys figured this out more than I have :/ MEANING- is there a certain undertone to the shades ending in .25's and .5's and .75's and so on? AND IF ANYONE USES THE SHADE 4.5 OR 4.75 OR 5.0 WHAT UNDERTONE DO YOU THINK THAT IS HAS AND WHY THAT SHADE WORKS FOR YOUR SKINCOLOR? ALLL THE HELP I CAN GET IS GREATLYYYYY APPRECIATED Thanks-- PLEASE HELP
Anyone have tips for oil control to the t-zone!? . . . I just started to use Dr. Brandt pores no more primer . . . It helps but the t-zone is still getting oily. Any suggestions for other primers? Or is it just as simple as me having to powder that area through out the day . . . which im sure is the nomral thing to do. I really don't carrying any products with me at work but it might not be a pad idea for powder. Suggestions on products ladies? Let me know!

I don't know why this annoys me, but some of the few times I actually write reviews people select "no" that my review wasn't helpful. I stay on topic, give my honest opinion and even how I personally use the product and still you review readers are not satisfied. Lol. Anyone else have a silly pet peeve about Sephora or Sephora.com?
I am looking for a foundation that is Medium-Full Coverage Long-lasting Good for dry, dehydrated skin And preferably transfer-resistant Any recommendations? I have been using NARS Sheer Glow, which I LOVE the coverage and finish of; however, it doesn't last long enough on me and tends to transfer. I would love to know any tips as well that might fix these issues. My foundation routine is pretty minimal (moisturizer, foundation, concealer), so it may be that I need to add more steps, such as primer, powder, or setting spray. I'm considering the Urban Decay Chill Makeup Setting Spray. Please let me know if this has worked to make your make up last longer and doesn't feel tight on the skin. (I've used All-Nighter before and it was so tight feeling.) Thanks!
As a woman in her late 30's, I have been using Clinique's Repairwear Laser Focus for lines on my forehead for the last few years. I think it's been helping - at least my lines haven't gotten worse. Now that Clinique has introduced the new Smart Custom Repair Serum, I wonder if I should make the switch. I plan to stop by the Clinique counter at Macy's this week, but wanted to see if anyone had some advice before I make the switch.
I've read so many posts about the best pore primers, but nearly everyone is talking about their oily skin and how they want to mattify it. When I use pore primers that have oil absorbing qualities, they dry my face out so badly that my foundation starts flaking off a few hours after I use it. One poster asked about this and instead of getting primer suggestions, they got moisturizing suggestions. I know how to moisturize, and why I have dry skin. Even when my face is properly moisturized, the primers will then dry it back out. I can use benefit porefessional, but it doesn't do a great job on my pores. I have tried : Kiehl's Blur, DHC Velvet Skin Coat and Pore Clarifying Cover Base, Laura Mercier, Philosophy supernatural, the new Smashbox for pores, Bare Minerals Prime Time, the regular Smashbox primers, Too Faced, Urban Decay, and I can't even remember the others. They either dry me out or are not thick enough to really fill in my pores. Any other suggestions? By the way, for anyone with oily skin and huge pores, the best pore cover I have ever found was DHC Pore Clarifying Cover Base, but it dries me out so bad.
I was colour matched to shade 127- Dark Sand last year in the MUFE Invisible Cover HD Foundation. I absolutely love this foundation- I love the coverage, the finish, etc. I am slightly more tanned than when I was matched to 127, so I'm looking for a recommendation for one shade (or even half a shade) darker in same skintone family. Thanks!
I like full coverage look. I wear Laura Mercier Silk Cream foundation and love it. I use lorac primer and powder...BUT I have such an oily face that makeup melts off my nose especially. Do you have any ideas how to keep my red nose covered?
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. In that vein, I've decided to do a red lip a day for the next 28 days (or until I run out). Please feel free to pop in and join me by posting a pic of your red lippie, even if you don't want to don a red every day. And who knows, you might even find your next great red this way!

I've been washing with Cetaphil gentle skin cleanser in the morning followed by a spray of rosewater toner and EltaMD AM moisturizer. In the evening I use Skinceuticals Purifying cleanser (which contains glycolic acid) with my Clarisonic followed by a spray of rosewater toner and EltaMD PM moisturizer. Twice a week I've been using Exfolikate in the evening - on those nights I dont use my Clarisonic. My forehead gets small bumps and breakouts and this sigificantly made it clearer and smoother. My chin was clear and breakout free as well. I've been using this regimen for about 2 1/2 weeks now and I'm starting to get dry flaky skin around my chin and mouth and also on my forehead. I'm also noticing breakouts coming back in my tzone. How can I get rid of this dry skin? Even after moisturizing my skin is still flaky. I didn't even use foundation because I knew it would make the flakes more noticable. My skin was so clear and smooth a week ago, how can I get back to that place?
today, i received some products from Sephora, by a brand called Belif. its a Korean skincare brand that will be launching at Sephora in March. i was so excited to receive these products because it's the first time i've been sent something from Sephora. i'm going to try one of the moisturizers tonight and i'll be back to update ~~ have any of you tried products from this brand? or received them from Sephora?
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?!?!
In the spirit of all the other wonderful challenges on BT right now, I'm starting up a nail polish challenge for us. I have a ridiculous stash and I need to show my polish some love. With nail polish, once a day would be absurd (of course), so let's try and show off a new look and polish once a week. I'm personally going with manicures only, but if you'd rather do pedicures or even both go for it! I'm eager to see your collections and meet other polish junkies. It's past time for me to commit to using my stash!
