Hey beauties! A couple folks have asked for a photo of my Tom Ford collection. Here it is! Not as bad as I thought! Blushes: Flush Savage Cheek duo: Stroked Softcore Quads: orchid Haze Nude Dip Cocoa Mirage Lipsticks: Moraccan Rouge Reckless warm sable Negligee Ginger Fawn Incorrigable Brushes:
What makeup is everyone wearing today? Today I am wearing: 1. Benefit Hello Flawless Foundation in Champagne 2. Benefit Coralista blush 3. TheBalm Mary-Loumanizer 4. Dior Creme de Rose Lipbalm 5. Dior Addict Lipstick in 454 6. Benefit Creaseless Cream shadow in RSVP and under all this I am wearing Neutrogena Pure and Free Liquid Sunblock SPF 50 So c'mon now...confess!
This hasn't been started yet so I'll give it a go. Today is the last day that SiJCP has an extra 25% off clearance so I stopped in to poke around before I start up the smoker for tonight. I grabbed all these goodies for $30.
Hello, I got my Color IQ yesterday, and I'm pretty happy with the BB cream it matched me with. While I think it's a great tool, I'd still like to know what this code translates to. Is there a chart somewhere to help me decode it? I'm a 2Y06. Thank you, Biakko
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.
I've been loving my naturally dark tan skin as of this summer. But I'm starting to learn more about darker colors that compliment my skin tone. Are there any colors that look phenomenal on someone with medium to dark skin?
--closed-- Box of awesome high end items and unicorns, show me yours and I'll show you mine, lol. While I’m not “ancient”, I’ve been on BeautyTalk WAY longer than I ever expected and have made some very good friends….as well as been enabled into getting WAY more makeup, lol. It is getting a bit overwhelming and as much as I like pretty things, my style is more minimalist, so I don’t reaaally need 6 or 7 jars of Guerlain meteorites etc. To help revamp/reorganize my stash as well as having some fun with the awesome friends I’ve made, I’m doing the LUV TB. It contains lots of makeup that I love but never use, altho I couldn’t bear to part with any perfumes or majority of the skincare, so you ladies will have to make up for it along the way. Keep it classy, with high end and preferably new or lightly used things. No drugstores. Since it’s got tons of expensive items, I asked people I trust who are interested, so the box is closed. If it goes well, I may do another one next year when I've accumulated enough treasures. =P Expand below to see the rules, taken from the awesome roxystar4 and slightly simplified: Spoiler (Highlight to read) * Please make sure every item is in a plastic ziplock bag to prevent spills.

The Sephora Favorites line is one of the things I love about Sephora. I've discovered great products that I never thought I would love because of it. I'm glad to see the selection is growing, with more skincare sets added. Regardless, I would love it more if Sephora would make an all-lipstick kit, all-blush kit, or a bronzer-highlighter kit. Maybe a nail product assortment. Whatever it is, I'd be happy to try as long as there is absolutely no Nars Orgasm or Laguna Any suggestions?
I thought this would be an interesting challenge as well as difficult, but also help you discover creative ways and/or using up something you feel guilty of buying but never using. I'm a bit of an impulse buyer when it comes to eyeshadows. I have several palettes but I usuall end up just using the same one or switch it up with another commonly used in my collection and I thought that should stop. Recently I've been good about rotating palettes but it still doesn't get much use that makes me happy I bought it. At first I thought "a month should do it" but I know not even I would be able to keep that promise. The challenge is this. To pick a product that you haven't really got much use out of, and use it for an entire week. So an example would be "I haven't used much of the Kat von D sinner palette so I'll use it for a week now." Here's a loophole to this. You pick your item but you can still use other shadows from other things, the point is that the item you've picked has to be in your daily look. It doesn't have to be palettes or singles only as long as you pick the item and stick to it for a whole week. That way we won't feel so guilty about not using it so much. The item that I will be picking will be the Kat von D Monarch palette. I use it every once in a while but I haven't for 7 consecutive days. So starting this Sunday, that palette will be part of my every day routine until Saturday. Summary: It doesn't have to be a palette, it can be a single eyeshadow. It doesn't have to be eye shadow, it can be a lippie, blush, or mascara. *edited to add foundation to the list* Yes, you can mix it with other products but this will be the item you won't leave behind in your daily routine for the 7 consecutive days. You don't have to post a picture of yourself if you don't want to, but if you want to take a picture of your item of choice, you can, and if you want. All you have to say to yourself is I can commit, I can accept, and I succeeded!
I finally depotted my lipsticks to save space in my kit and while I was depotting, I realized there's so much extra product that we don't even think about using. It just goes to waste. So here's the full bullet that we use. I sliced it off and you can see that there's still product inside the tube. Look how much is in there! That has to be at least 50 applications! There's even more in the tube that I didn't get onto the back of my tweezers. I transferred everything that I have into this organizer from Michael's for only $2! The only downside to depotting is losing the pretty packaging expensive lipsticks. Mine are all from the drugstore, so I wasn't reluctant to depot these!
We swatched the new Kat Von D Star Studded Eyeshadow Book to see how the colors looked on different skintones. What do you think?
Do you have a swatch of this palette? Post a pic in the thread below!
Link to shop coming 9/30!
I absolutely love Blackheart and I do not love the Naked 3 palette. I returned it, but I am contemplating buying it just for Blackheart but I can't see spending the money (again) for a palette I won't use. I also love the liner, but it only comes (as far as I know) in the double liner with Darkside...and I want it as a single. Please?!? Anyone know of any dupes ? I want the sparkle!
My love for Sephora continues. I was sent a comped, brand new, full sized Dr Dennis Gross Alpha Beta Medi-Spa Peel (launching 08-26-14) to review. I will use it for the first time tonight, so check back to this post if the product interests you.
I have been wanting to try CT's products forever! I think I'm going to order a couple of products to try out. Any recommendations? I can only order them online, so if any of you has any swatches, that would be great too! So far on my list, Dolce Vita eye shadow palette Light wonder foundation 02 (I wasn't too sure about the shade) Rock n kohl eyeliner ( It sounds like an amazing product, are they really perform as good as a liquid liner?) Wonder glow (how does it compare to Becca's shimmering perfector or TF illuminating primer?)
Today I came home and was super excited to have 8 Sephora boxes to open up even though most were gifts for my family and friends. I had purchased a few of the Ocos Locos 2, Feminine Palettes, Philosophy make up removers , etc from the recent sale First of all, I noticed that instead of receiving the Sephora gift bag like I requested, all 8 orders were in big gift boxes. Then, after opening all of my packages, I was missing 10 samples in total. All of the ones that I was supposed to get the Kate Sommerville exfloiant were missing. I know that they are allowed to substitute samples, which they did for some, but I was still missing 10 ! To make matters worse, I was missing 2 of the Clinique Smart serums that I was supposed to get for using the SMART promo code. I'm not impressed at all with the warehouse! Can someone please tell me what is going on with the warehouses?
I need somewhere to track all of the awesomeness of this collection. Below is what I've read will be released, but I haven't seen any pictures, so post if you find any!! I know all of those lipsticks will be coming to live with me.. and the lip pencil, and probably the eye shadows, and really anything that can be described as 'sparkling chunky gold' needs to be mind.

Went to Sephora in JCP for the new KVD holiday palette (which is amazing btw) and saw these exclusive favorites sets. Didn't see anything about them on BT so I thought I'd share. Spa Radiance Star Performers Cleansing Rituals Lashes Unlimited Lip Service Makeup Must-Haves Eyeliner Essentials
Hello everyone, I am sort of new to the Ambient Powders game, I got my first one in Diffused Light a few weeks ago. I have been really enjoying using it in my makeup routine, so I started thinking about getting another one. I am not really considering getting the palette, because I don't have use for Radiant Light at all. I also think (but I may be wrong) that Dim Light would be too light to use it all over my face. Here is my question: which other one would be a good choice for someone with VERY fair skin with pinkish undertones and a little redness in the skin?
For all ladies who are waiting for Kat von D, I went to JCP Sephora to pick up the Vice 3 palette and lo and behold Kat von D's Holiday sets were out! I was completely surprised and excited to get them coz they were not even out online or Sephora store yet but here's a quick look at them on display. The lady told me they just got them in yesterday. I'll take better pics when I get them home.
Recently I received a PM from Sephora thanking me for my participation on BT and offering to send me a free full sized gift. Today I received a full size NUDE Brightening Fizzy Powder Wash. http://www.sephora.com/product/productDetail.jsp?k eyword=nude%20brightening%20fizzy&skuId=1629286&pr ... The back says: This effervescent powder wash brightens skin for a glowing complexion with multiple sources of Vitamin C. Powerful enzymes work together with all-natural rose hip and vanilla seeds for skin-clearing exfoliation, eliminating dull skin and impurities. With omega-rich acai berry, Inca gold and virgin coconut oils, this treatment exfoliator smooths and softens while refining skin. Super pumped to try it tonight!
I posted a previous post about starting a traveling box with samples and deluxe samples and a few ladies were interested in doing one! This is the 1st traveling box I am apart of and of course the 1st that I am starting. So, we need to decide if we are going to do a medium or small flat rate box. RULES No used items. No open items DO NOT take more than you put in. Let's keep this fun and fair DO NOT take multiples of the same sample PLEASE try not to keep the box more than 3 days Make sure to send your address to the person listed above you Once you send the box off, post the tracking number in this thread ALL unused items allowed (well maybe not nail polishes if it will make the shipping costs go up) Post a pic of what you take out, what you put in and what is left in the box before you send it off We are going to have fun and try to keep this going as long as we can! If you are interested in being in the box, I have a few spots left so post a pic of what samples you have in this thread to be added. To start off, we are only going to have 10 people! 1. CuriousCannibal 2. MegEm 3.MLLECC 4. tessie84 5. Kittichick 6. NicoleFrat 7. NightKnight 8. Sweetxteeth 9. Nishcakes 10. Kariyava
So, I was thinking we should start a list of known store events. This will be a list not just for Rouge events, but for any in store brand events, free gift promos, point promos, discount days, etc. Some events are nation wide and in Canada, some are only in certain markets. The main way I check for events is by using the store finder link and entering different zipcodes around me and by asking about any intel whenever I'm in store. Let's pool our intel! Please post anything you know or heard about below and I'll add it to the list. UPCOMING EVENTS NATIONWIDE - US Oct 3-5 - @SiJCP **Please call before you go to confirm your store is participating!**ALSO, this was told to me by a store manager, she was pretty certain, but people can get dates wrong, so check locally!

Not sure what the minimum is, but it might offically be $35 (though many stores will kind of fudge that as long as you ask for the perk). Oct 11 - @ SiJCP's NARS event with free gift.

I can't be the only one, right? So far I have all the pressed versions. Minis of all the liquids except for Moonstone (which I do not have yet), Pearl (which I do not have yet), and Rose Gold (I have the full size). And I just ordered the new Spotlights set! Please tell me there are others out there as obsessed as me!
Hey y'all! I've been looking around this message board for the past half hour or so and I figured I would ask my own question, sorry if it's already been answered! I'm 22 years old and up until about a year ago I had perfect skin, I had the occasional break out but that was mostly around my period. Now? My entire chin and both cheeks are full of blemishes, scars, white heads, it's ridiculous! I don't know what to do, I don't know if it's hormonal or just a circumstance of stress and poor diet. I have combination skin (I think) sometimes it looks dry, other times it's like it's oozing oil (sorry!) and it's sensitive. I've tried Proactiv and it didn't work, I bought a Clarisonic brush but it didn't really help much. I don't know what works and what doesn't. If you've been through this and you've found a miracle product (I know everything is not going to work for everybody) would you please share your tips and tricks? I've heard of washing your face with something like coconut oil but I'm on the fence about that, I feel like it would just break me out more. Thank you!
