This thread is the place to post sneak peeks of new products and special collections and to discuss all things Marc Jacobs Beauty!   If you are an existing fan or have questions about a particular product or want to explore the brand for the first time, feel free to join the discussion. And of course feel free to post about anything else related to MJ beauty should you be so inclined! I'm curious to know everyone's experience with the brand.     Spoiler (Highlight to read) How I began the discussion back in December 2015: To start off, I recently purchased the LE Style Eye Con No. 20 Holiday Palette during the VIB sale, but I have yet to use it or even swatch the colors on myself. It is currently still in "sacred relic" mode in my mind, but I'm also intimidated as it is my first ever large palette purchase. I'm not an eyeshadow expert by any means, in knowledge nor in application. I would like to begin this discussion by inviting those of you who have this palette to post eye looks that you have created with it. I need some ideas!   How I began the discussion back in December 2015:To start off, I recently purchased the LE Style Eye Con No. 20 Holiday Palette during the VIB sale, but I have yet to use it or even swatch the colors on myself.

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?

A place to say thanks to helpful BTer's, share your new BT status or heart achievement... A place to joke around, share memes, riddles or anything else you want to. Let's bring back some life in this place!!!!    
Face
I'm in desperate need of a pressed powder foundation for those days when I am just not feeling a full face. I often set my face with a loose translucent powder on full face days, so I'm unsure as to what would be the best pressed power to use?   I would be using this alongside UD naked concealer and some liner/mascara/dip brow.  My skin type is pretty normal, but gets oily from time to time.    I don't want anything too heavy or cakey obviously. I was considering too faced pressed foundation, but many of the reviews say that it really only works best as a setting powder after using liquid foundation.   So, whats the best out there?    Thanks!

Hauls
I saw the best youtube video...on anti-hauls. Basically, it's things you are not going to buy (no way, not ever, absolutely) and why. So here are my anti-hauls for holiday 2016 updated:   1.  The KVD/TooFaced collaboration.  People are already listing it below.  I don't get it and to me it just looks tacky.  Two brands that apparently aren't better together.   2.  Pat McGrath lips sets.  I do not need glitter on my lips and the shades don't look unique or distinctive.   3.  The new Tarte deluxe blush palette (the $65 one).   I need to stop with these deluxe size holiday offerings.  I can't seem to hit pan on one blush, let alone 9 (I think it has nine).   4.  Things off Beauty dot com just because they're discounted.  I do not need makeup, even super cheap makeup.  I might want it, but I don't need it.   5.  Sorry on this one, but after buying a bunch of UD palettes at full price, to see them all get discounted deeply, I will not be buying more full priced UD palettes.   6.  If the Sephora Give Me More Lips has lip liners, I will not be buying it.     Videos one and two are on the last or almost last page of comments to this thread.  The others are littered in.  Kimberly Clark (youtube name so not putting in names not allowed on BT) made them.  Video 2 I'll link now:

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

I need the color iq number for Clinique Perfectly Real foundation in shade #1. I've also worn the Clinique almost powder in shade fair. I haven't had any luck with the online shade finder because these two items have been discontinued. Can anyone help? I'm not near a store to go in to be matched.

I want to get my makeup done at Sephora for Prom but I don't want to pay until I get a preview of what I'm getting.  Will Sephora be able to do a test run for my prom makeup before I make any payments?

What lip pencil goes with Amuse Bouche Sangria????
Face
I have oily skin and I have the Loreal Matte Foundation in 102 shell beige which is the wrong undertone and too dark and the Maybelline Matte foundation in 115 ivory which is the wrong undertone and too dark and orange as well. I bought a foundation whitener and it doesn't seem to help. I have tried mixing the foundations in different combinations to make it match my skin but it didn't work. More than anything they are either too dark or not my skin undertone. There aren't very many foundations in the drugstore good for oily skin. I would buy a foundation from Sephora but I am a broke university student. I am going into a Sephora today to get colour matched and maybe get samples of foundations. What should I do? Try to buy another foundation to mix into the 2 I already have? I just don't want to waste the 2 foundations even though I have already spent the money.

I use the Origins Vitazing moisturizer every day instead of foundation - it gives me a perfect smoothing look without a 'foundation-y' look and it's low maintenance and doesn't make me break out. But Sephora has been out of the Vitazing for weeks now, and I'm running out!    Is there another lightly tinted moisturizer that would be a good substitute? Any suggestions? I've tried Laura Mercier's tinted moisturizer which I didn't care for (too sunscreen-y smell and too tinted), and Dr Jart's BB cream which looked fabulous but made me break out something awful. 
Marc Jacobs Highliner Final look
Eyes
Comparing to other gel eyeliners I've tried Marc Jacobs #highliner glides on perfectly, with great pigmentation and it blends so well that I couldn't believe. I used to be a Urban Decay liners' fan but now it is my favourite one. It totally worthes every cent! And lasts all day! I received it as complimentary product from @influenster and @marcbeauty and I can't wait to buy more colors and play with them all! #contest

I need some help matching a shade.  What color Too Faced Born This Way Naturally Radiant Concealer would match Too Faced Born This Way Foundation in Pearl?    Thanking you in advance for your time and insight.

Does anybody know if the Sigma creme de couture palette will go back on-line? I had found it (here in Canada) and couldn't make up my mind and now it's sold out.
Face
I recently purchased Estee Lauder Double Wear Foundation in shade "1C1 Cool Bone". I am very pale with golden/greenish undertones, but this was as light as it went. I received it and it was a bit too dark/wrong undertone as I thought. HOWEVER, I have extremely oily skin and it was the best foundation ever in keeping that under control. I used it for 16 hours with minimal oiliness, when my face would normally be an oil slick after 4 hours.    My question is, does the Double Wear Light have a different shade range, or one that is possibly lighter than 1C1? If not, can anyone recommend a foundation that is similar to this formula with a better shade range?
