Fall / Winter Found in the Wild 2016 (and Holiday Too!)
Until @TheSocialQuota wants to take this over again I'm going to keep the "Found in the Wild" thread going. All that is new on the Sephora site posted in one thread. If I remember correctly, sometime around mid-to-late August early holiday and many fall items start showing up on the Sephora site. So this thread is a place to post all of the new items or brands showing up here (or elsewhere if you want)....updated for Fall and Winter 2016. I will miss most so if you see a new item please post it!!

Beauty Recommendations for Trip to Tokyo
**So, I know that there's a similar thread out there for this for someone's trip to Japan, but since it's 2 years old now, I thought it would be okay to create a new one with updated information.**   So, I am fortunate enough to be able to take a trip to Tokyo in a few weeks, and, as a lover of beauty and a person intrigued by Asian skincare, I was wanting to create a short list of beauty items or brands that I should be on the look out for while I'm there. Any suggestions? My skin is pretty sensitive, so I'm leaning more towards makeup (as my skin tolerates that better than skincare). However, I am open to any sensitive skincare as well.   Thanks!

Love for Brushes
I'm developing a love for brushes of all kinds.  I bought a few Hakuhodo brushes and they are amazing.  They are incredibly soft and my makeup glides on like a dream.  They have so many interesting shapes.  I can't wait to get the 103 and 142. I am really interested in creating a beautiful brush collection.  Show your brushes and share any cleaning and storage tips and let us know which ones are your favorites.

How do I match my foundation shade for drugstore makeup?
I haven't done the official Color IQ color matching. However, I got matched for the Makeup Forever HD Ultra foundation as the shade R230 or R260, then I matched Too Faced Born This Way in Porcelain. I want to know how I can transfer those matches to drugstore foundations and makeup. Are there any websites or resources I can use? Thanks!

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?

Help - How do I patch test? + Skincare Reactions
I started a new skincare regime and had a terrible reaction all over my my cheeks and forehead because I didn't ease into it like I should have - skin is red, itchy, and feels inflamed. I have a few questions if anyone can help.   1. In the future I want to patch test everything I use beforehand, but I'm not sure what area to patch test on?  I saw online you should test for irritants in the area most susceptible, but I don't want to patch test on my face! My nose and the side of my face is fine and did not react (even though they were exposed to the same products) - so I am worried that if I test behind my ear/inside my elbow I would still react on my face.    2. What I did that night was - Ole Henriksen on the go cleanser (used a lot a few years ago, had no reaction). Then I followed with PTR Cucumber Mask (only new product that night). Followed by Ole's Vitamin C serum + oil (had used for a week with no reactions). I think the redness started after I applied the serum/oil parts. What product could have caused the reaction? The cucumber mask is supposed to be really gentle and I have used his Pumpkin Enzyme Mask with no adverse effects before. Could it have been me combining products rather than a single product that caused it?

Daily Skincare - what are you using?
Often people ask for recommendations on a skincare routine or for specific products/combinations.  This might be a place to share your everyday skincare, both AM and PM.  A skincare "what are you wearing" as it were.  Hope this is useful.   *Age - 40 Skin type - oily/combination Current skin condition - quite dehydrated (winter/indoor heating)*   01/17/16 - AM skincare in the order I used 1. Nude Jelly cleanser (love) 2. Pixi Glow tonic (5% glycolic toner - love) 3. Omorovicza Queen of Hungary Spritz (sample) 4. Radical Skincare Youth Infusion serum - hydrating and anti-ageing (new to me.  Testing) 5. Bobbi Brown Hydrating Eye Cream (like) 6. Elemis Pro-Collagen Marine cream (really like as an AM moisturizer)   I will try to post PM skincare tonight so the post can be comprehensive.   General comments - Okay skin.  Apparently the age between 38-42 is a transformational time in hormones (dehydrated skin/spots), so I am more aware of how my skin performs/reacts .  My skincare definitely has more "actives" now than before.

Help understanding skin undertone and foundation
I need help picking a foundation color. I got matched with Remarcable by Marc Jacobs in both shade 10 and 12, which are described as very fair with pink undertones and very fair with yellow undertones respectively. After wearing both coloring on alternating days for a week, I think I'm in between undertones ie neutral. I didn't realize until I went to check online that their is a third color that comes right after 12 described as very fair with peach undertones. Is peach similar to neutral? Should I go back to be color matched again?

Are you "trialing" a new product ? Want to talk about it ?
trying new products can be...overwhelming. do you love a product because it works ? can you tell right away if it's performing the way you want it to ? sometimes i'm so happy to finally try something and let my enthusiasm blind my  actual  impression of it (at least at first )   it takes time to come to proper conclusions ! particularly when it comes to skincare, but makeup too.   so here's a thread where we can discuss our experiences while trying a product  for a first time. it can also be a place that people can reference if they're considering a new product.   right now i'm trying a sample of the REN v-cense night cream. i've only used it for 2 nights so far, but i LOVE IT. i love it so much i'm tempted to go ahead and grab it up, but i need to make sure it doesn't break me out over time (it contains shea butter which *can* be a breakout trigger for me, but not necessarily). it smells of frankincense which i adore, but i know for some people would be a turn off.   i'm also checking out the VICHY aqualia thermal serum. i really love the CAUDALIE vinosource s.o.s. thirst quenching serum, and prefer the texture of it to the VICHY, but think the caudalie may break me out slightly (i also was probably overusing it...i was very enthusiastic). so i'm just trying to figure out which i prefer.   how about you ?   __________ post trial edit about the products above: i had to skip on the REN because the shea butter in it was too heavy for my skin. and i suppose buying something simply for the smell isn't the best use of my moola the VICHY aqualia thermal serum, however, is in my permanent arsenal. i've already repurchased once since starting this thread, and have turned a few people on to it too !

The Travel Thread
Hello Everyone!   I've been meaning to make this thread for years! I want this thread to be a place where we can discuss what beauty products to check out while we are traveling, what places we are visiting/visited, what places we are saving to visit, and beauty travel tips. This can be near and far travel to include as many people as possible. I know there are individual threads about beauty products already, but I'm hoping to put them all in one place. Please link them so I can put in the info in the spoilers! Also, I'm curbing my spending to be able to travel more so I hope this encourages others who want to do the same! I'll post a new question each month to try to keep the thread active. I hope you come along with me! I'm also open to suggestions of what else I should include in this thread.   What beauty products should I check out while I'm traveling? Spoiler (Highlight to read) USA: Canada: Japan: Greece: USA:Canada:Japan:Greece:   What are your beauty travel tips?  Spoiler (Highlight to read)     Question of the month: What's your favorite place you've visited?

Which foundation should I try?
I like the Kat Von D tattoo foundation, but its a little too heavy for me. Right now, I'm using the Makeup Forever HD foundation, but I want to try something new. I like the HD foundation and the finish, but I want something with a little more coverage. Any recommendations?

If you find something lighter weight you like, but not enough coverage try a colored primer. see post

Sephora Canada Site Product Update Thread
Hello Canadian BTers!   I'm starting this new thread to act as the official update location of new launches, LE products, and brands that are on coming to the US site but may be launching (and returning) to Sephora's Canadian site at a different time. There are a lot of changes happening in real time over here, and in the spirit of communication, this thread is to keep our BTers abreast of the information we have. This is not going to be everything, and could also be subject to change (and hopefully we won't need this thread forever), but we are working with the Canadian team to get as much information for you as we can.   That being said, we will only be using this thread to speak to dates and info about big upcoming launches, LE products, and brands that are on the US site and are coming to the Sephora.ca site. If you have  a question about any of these things, drop it here, and we will do our best to track down the answer for you.   I realize that you guys are feeling all of the feelings right now about the new warehouse move, but this thread is not a venting loop, nor is it a thread to deal with customer service issues (as I don't have any access to our order systems). We've got quite a few of those on the community already (for totes good reason), but I'd like to keep this specific thread informational, if possible.   Okay on to the info!
