Hey guys.. I am looking at trying some tarte products.. What would you recommend.  I have heard great things about Tarte's foundation. I wear Laura Mercier - Rose Ivory foundation, and her Nude TM, I also wear Smashbox 1.2   What shade should I try in Tarte?

Or are we not able to return it? I looked at sephora policy online and it only indicated that mail returns would not be able to be returned after 90 days. Is that the same for store?

Are there any particular products/brands that you are completely loyal to?  Ever since I discovered Josie Maran's brand 3 years ago, I have not switched my skincare. That is really saying something, because I am a beauty product junkie! Also, I'm super loyal to WEN since switching to it over 2 years ago.  What beauty products/brands are you loyal to and would consider your ultimate holy grail?

I bought it in April and left it at my mum's house. I recently went to my mums a month ago and found it. Now it's too light for my skin tone. I still have the receipt but I bought it in April. Is it too late to return?

So I got tired of waiting for Perversion mascara to be available in store and bought the Marc Jacobs Omega Lash. I'm on the fence about it. I do LIKE it but I'm not sure I LOVE it. All things being equal, I probably prefer Too Faced Better than Sex because it gave me more volume and fullness. MJ's gives a ton of length, but I already have super duper crazy long lashes and usually want fullness and volume over lengthening.    Having said that I am not one for returning products without a REALLY good reason. I really dislike returns of products done lightly as in the end that drives up prices and is extremely wasteful.   I think I should just keep and use the mascara. It's a nice mascara and even though it doesn't blow me away, in 2 months I can justify a new one, and hopefully by then Perversion will be available. I desperately needed a new mascara as my old TFBTS was way old.    OK, I think I just talked myself into keeping it. 2 months won't kill me. I know it was pricey at $33 CAD, and if I HATED it then I would return it, but I don't think feeling "meh" about a product justifies returning it.    OK, sorry, I didn't really ask a question there so much as I just went through a thought process exercise. :-)

I want to get one of these during the August 3rd event, but I need to get some advice.   I have medium brunette hair, blue eyes, and light to medium skin with neutral undertones.   I have some other palettes (TF Chocolate Bar, Lorac Pro 1/2, Naked 1/2/3, UD Electric, and UD Smoked) and I would like something different than the palettes I have but complementary (if that makes sense) to them.   If anyone has tried any of these and have any opinions, pros, cons, ect. on them I would love to hear Thanks in advanced!

I have a pretty comfy makeup station and I do love me my products and I pretty much use everything from soup (primer) to nuts (setting spray). But I've noticed that instead of getting faster, I'm just getting slower and sloooower in my makeup application. I really enjoy the process of putting my makeup on - it's probably my favorite part of the day. But I feel like it's taking me a ridiculously long time to do my fairly simple everyday look (I don't vary how I do my makeup TOO much from day-to-day). So I used the timer on my phone for the past three days: 42, 50, and 52 minutes! Yikes! You ladies have seen my makeup. Nothing on my face should take 52 minutes! I know I take a long time doing my eyebrows - they're always a trouble spot for me. I'm going to TRY and speed myself up over the next few days so I can at least have more time to walk my dog in the mornings before work.    So I'm curious...how long does it take YOU to do your makeup?

We've all been there...a bag full of unused or disappointing make up from the drug store, which I still like but without the ability to try before buy you end up with a lot of fails. Then you find Sephora and wonder, is the price worth it? You try a few things, you like a few things, you see the price tag and tell yourself: "Eh, I can go with ramen noddles for a week to afford this." And then you buy it. What was your first purchase? Why did you choose it? I always like hearing other stories like this. Share on!
Lips
I have strawberry blonde hair , blue eyed, and light skin and i am looking for a fire engine red lipstick that will last on my lips all day. Any good ones that you guys know of?

This is my second order of Give Me Some Lip. My fav is the full size Smashbox with the cushy paddle like applicator and the Buxom with a great tingle feeling. Anyone else have this set? What do you think beauties?

Seriously. I went to a Sephora today, and asked for a sample of Josie Maran's Illuminator, and I got a tiny needle drop of it. What gives!      Actually, with all store made samples, they're pretty stingy. At least my Sephora is. What about yours?

I didn't see any active threads and discovered it today online so just want to spread the word to those who love the products like me!

I wish that Sephora would make our 'love' lists more customizable.     I am never able to send a wishlist for my birthday/holidays, because in addition to the things that I lust for, I also keep my staples on that list as well, that I replenish when I need to.   I would be pretty disappointed receiving a tube of Porefessional for my birthday, when what I REALLY wanted was a set of glittery UD eyeliners.   PLEASE, Sephora!  Give us a more customizable list.  I would love to have a 'shopping list' and a 'wish list' that I can keep separately from one another!

Hey lovelies, So i know a lot of you own the original contour palette and love it... personally for me, it was too warm and not true "contour" colors other than fawn. I own shadowy from mac and its definitely too deep for every day use, and i was going to purchase sculpt... but do any of you suggest any of her new colors from the customizable palette? (She released a ton on her site!)   you can drag and drop shades to create your own so it would be awesome if you could suggest the shades that are true contour colors... and if there are none, i will go for my sculpting powder   Thanks for any feedback on this palette!

Maaaannnn. Whenever I look around on here, everyone has these awesome eyebrows. Very neat/tidy and that awesome high arch.   My eyebrows are a mess. I used to get a anastasia wax brow treatment every month or so but I moved to Canada and I can't seem to find that same treatment anywhere. Right now I'm just pluckin' at them myself but obviously I suck at it.   What products do you guys use and how? Gel? Pencils? Powder?! I want tidy eyebrows!   Here are my eyebrows. Daaaaaamn.

Ok beauty masters.  I'm thinking of purchasing those infamous meteorites during the 4x point week. I need your advice...do I need to order the bigger box or the cheaper box, or purchase both?  I mean, is it worth the $ to buy both or should I just get one?  Ive noticed several of you guys have both.  I'm fair skinned and freckled, hazel eyes, and blonde hair.  Any thoughts?n

i recently purchased the hourglass ambient lighting palette but I'm unsure how to use it correctly. Are their any links that describe how to apply the 3 colors?    Thanks for any tips you all may have

  I don't know if any of you ladies know about this but Sonia Kashuk just came out with a LE 15 piece brush set in celebration of their 15th anniversary. I just picked up the last one in my town today during my lunch break. I personally think this is a steal. It is $40 at Target.   If you can find it, I suggest to get it right there and then because this set is sold out almost everywhere and each Target in the US and Canada each get 2 sets. Go on to Target's website and use the "find in a Target store" and click on "pick up in store" if it shows up to reserve it. Sonia Kashuk is trying to keep it in stock but it keeps selling out. This set will be available until October according to their customer service line.     If anyone wants to know how they perform, let me know and I will do a small review here on BT.
