Deals Too Good to Pass Up (Take 3)
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 link to acknowledge it. A heart with no comment means I already have the deal or am deciding not to list it. Thanks for sharing. Repeats are always welcome, so if you're unsure if something was previously posted, post it. People who may have missed it the first time could see the second posting. Don't forget to list the retailer, so everyone knows where to get your deal. If you're posting about something on sale at Sephora, share it here. http://community.sephora.com/t5/Hauls/Sephora-Sale s-Section-Get-it-Now/m-p/2122832#M44949

Fabulous February Hauls
I didn't see a February Haul thread...and it is February.  So, since I'm up early I decided to start one.  Romance is in the air, so hauls for you or others count.  Can't wait to see what you have found and hauled!

Color IQ -- A Different Result Each Time
I'm a little confused about my color iq results. The first time I had these done, I was told my numbers were 1R07. I was set up with a new foundation, but it never really worked for me. My skin, plagued by rosacea, didn't need anymore pink/red added to it. The next time I visited a Sephora for foundation concerns, I went to a different store, and asked my foundation questions and voiced concerns. This time, after going through color iq, I was given the numbers 2Y07. The foundation I got, Too Faced, has been great. So when I went back to ask about finding the right red lipstick for me, I was scanned again, this time resulting in 4Y06. This seems like quite the change. Has this happened to anyone else? Do they "test" differently for foundation and lips? I'm just wondering if perhaps my foundation is too light or the lipstick that was suggested is too dark?    Thanks for the help,   Elin

Color Match to Giorgio Armani
Hello Beauties! I'm shopping for a Giorgio Armani Luminous Silk Foundation online and having trouble selecting a color.  I tried the Color Match "app" and it seems I can't select the foundation I'm trying to match to. I normally wear Makeup Forever HD Ultra in color 135= R300, or YSL Touche Eclat in BD40 (my skin is cool tone and fair). Is there a way to plug this info in and get a Giorgio Armani Luminous Silk equivalent?   Be so awesome if there were a site that listed all the foundations with the color equivalents aligned.

Toner
I've been contemplating adding a toner to my skin care routine. Is it worth it?  My current routine is boscia black cleanser, murad acne & wrinkle reducer, fab repair hydrating serum and fab ultra repair cream.  My skin is sensitive and has a tendency to be dry.  This current routine has helped a lot but I would like to improve tone, texture and I still experience some acne (although it’s greatly reduced with the murad).  Would adding a toner help?

Makeup touch ups for oily skin on the go ?
I have oily skin and use a oil free BB cream but it's annoying to blend with my fingers and I don't want to use a brush since it is not travel friendly. I am planning on switching to Laneige's Pore control bb cushion ( great to travel with) and also plan on purchasing, blotting paper, and Kiko Milano's Matte Base Primer, and their compact foundation(to make my skin matte). However, for touch ups during the day, should i just use the blotting papers to wipe the excess oil off and touch up with just the bb cushion mentioned above or use it with the Kiko Milano compact foundation together. I just don't know if I should purchase one compact or both of these.

Use blotting paper first to take away the grease, then if you feel like you need/want a little more coverage, then use your cushion/compact. Or leave it if you don't.  ... see post

We've all felt the pain of those items that we would have gotten, should have gotten but now must pay way to much to buy from re-sellers.  Maybe collective BT minds can identify (while still in stock) the limited edition must haves. My recents...the Dior Nude illuminating powder (spring 2016) is a pass.  The Chanel Ribbon blush spring 2016) is a maybe.  The YSL Gypsy Opale and Indie Jaspie (face powder and eye shadow) sold out within hours of the YSL site pre-release (it just went live on NM).

Products to Use Up in 2016

Fresh Sugar Sport Lip
I was selected to receive a sample of the new Fresh Sugar Sport Lip gratis from Sephora. It is slightly larger than the regular lip treatment (6g and oval shape) and meant for use on lips, face and eye area according to the package.  It has a dryer feel and the sunscreen smell is more prominent than the lip products- not surprising since it is SPF 30. It still has some of the classic lemon/sugar scent. Including a picture next to regular one for reference.    I actually like like the feel of this one better than the original which I find too soft. It's quite moisturizing and I love the higher SPF. Feel of it lasts about 30 minutes which is average for me for this type of product.    Not sure when it is coming out or what retail price will be. Have others gotten this or interested?   thanks, Sephora, for the opportunity to try this. I am always on the hunt for a good lip balm with sunscreen.

I've tried ignoring it. I've buried my head under the Vanity and told myself it's not happening...but it happened. I've run out of room on top of Vanity. Of course that means I'm looking at depotting a large amount of my collection into Z Palettes. I currently only have two: 1 large which holds my Urban Decay eyeshadow singles and 1 small which hold the single Mac blush I own. So now I'm trying to figure out how many and what sizes I need to depot my Tarte Blushes and maybe a few eyeshadow palettes (like my Naked palettes). So lets have a Z Palette Show & Tell.

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.

Urban Decay Thread!
So I just picked up some of the UD.com exclusive Revolution shades, and I was looking around for a place to post swatches and realized (thanks guzelkiz!) that Urban Decay was not yet represented among the various brand threads. A travesty! So here it is.   The shades I picked up are Protest and Matte Carnal. I was afraid they would be dupes of things, because I apparently tend to buy the same-ish shades of nude/muted colors over and over.   The good news, they're not! Both are close to things I have, but they're not exact dupes, at least in natural light.   Here's Protest, between NARS Audacious Anita on the left, and Raquel on the right, with Jane underneath. It's close, but it's still warmer than Anita and darker than Raquel, so score!     Here's Carnal, between Jeffree Star Celebrity Skin on the left and NARS Audacious Jane on the right. Again, close, but warmer than CS and darker than Jane.     Anybody grab the other UD.com exclusives yet?

how do i convince my parents I'm old enough to wear makeup?
My 13th birthday is coming up, and I wanna start wearing makeup. And no I don't mean red lipstick, full on eyeshadow (even though the shades are TO DIE FOR) eyeliner, and eyebrows. I want something natural (Primer, Foundation, Powder, Mascara primer, and Mascara). But my parents think I'm too young. I'm a mature almost 13 year old that does their homework, listens to their parents, and gets good grades. And my parents are aware of my makeup obsession.
