So who else is waiting on holiday sets already?
Wondering what new palettes Kat Von D will have, as well as what's to come from Tarte and UD!!! Who else is with me and what are you excited for? Can we expect these the end of this month?

Can we just..get married, Charlotte?
So I was watching a youtube video of Vintageortacky and when I saw her Charlotte Tilbury blush, my jaw dropped. I had my eye on the YSL peachy one but .. this... just beats it, and can I say cute packaging? I wasn't going to jump on the CT bandwagon, but according to Cora this gives a nice natural peachy touch.. yep.  This blush is called Ecstacy.    And this one is the one Cora used called First Love.

Anastasia Beverly Hills Eyebrow Event @ Sephora Eaton Centre!
Hey guys! Just wanted to let everyone know about the ABH event happening on Sep. 20th at Toronto's Eaton Centre.   It's appointment-only, from 12-7pm. Anastasia herself will be there, as well as her brow team to give you a mini brow makeover. The makeover will consist of filling in/shaping brows and showing you different techniques for what you want to achieve. No plucking/waxing involved!   Also, I heard from an SA that if you buy any Anastasia product during the event, you will get a GWP (a clear brow gel & brow powder, apparently).

How long does it take you to do your makeup?
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?

Can you commit?
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!

ARMANI EYE & BROW MAESTRO - ANY THOUGHTS?
The Armani Eye & Brow Maestro Creams are supposed to be total game changers, which can be used as eyeshadows, brow color, and even hair color (hair color - seriously?).   There are 9 shades (described as iridescent), they are (apparently) waterproof and they (apparently) last 20 hours.    I have to say I'm intrigued. What do you all think?

"Save For Later" Option
Is it possible for Sephora get a "Save for Later" option like Amazon?   I know this tool would help a lot of people out significantly due to the fact that people put items in their carts just to see when the prices of their item go on sale, or who plan to buy it in the future and put it in their carts as references.   The tool would help a lot because the buyer wouldn't need to empty their whole cart in order to buy specific items they need only during that time...   This option would be similar to the LOVE tab, but you don't LOVE the item, you are just putting it there for future reference.

Was my product opened before I opened it?
i just bought the too faced mascara today when i came home and opened it, it was really light. i dont know if it's supposed to be like that, though. i was at the register and i asked the lady if they had any more of the mascara in stock because there were no more on the shelves. she left the register to go and look, and im assuming that she got it out of the storage that they keep underneath the display. i didn't go with her, so i didn't see. but she came back and i bought it. the packaging seemed really intact. actually, i had to rip the upper tab a little bit because it was hard to open. anyway, when i opened it, it seemed really light. and i can't tell if it's because it was used or if its just light. can anyone help me? the last mascara i used was the maybelline great lash, and i know that has about one and a half times more than what comes in the better than sex mascara. so maybe i'm just not used to it. help please?

Q. cle de peau concealer
I know that Cle De Peau Concealer is supposed to be one of the best out there, so I recently went to a department store counter to try it out. I am very fair and usually match the lightest shade of foundation/concealer in most brands. When I swatched the lightest CDP concealer shade, Ivory, it looked very dark on my hand. I compared the concealer to my foundation at home and it was darker than my foundation. Is there anyone else who has noticed this with CDP? Is this supposed to be more of a corrector? Or is there anyone who is pale but still uses CDP concealer that can explain to me how it works for them? Thank you!

How do I know if my product was opened and used?
I just bought the too faced better than sex mascara from a sephora store today. it seemed untouched in the packaging. The thing is, I had gone to the counter with other products and asked the lady and the register if they had more of these mascaras in stock, because there were no more on the shelves. she disappeared and returned with the mascara. it took her a little while, i could be being paranoid. anyway, im assuming she took one out of the storage units they have under the display. when i came home and opened it, it felt really light. i'm wondering if i was given a mascara that was already used? perhaps even the sample mascara? i'm not sure. there was also a red mark (kind of looks like paint/marker) on it, that won't come off. but that might just be a manufacturing defect. also, the package on the outside seemed pretty sound though. i ripped the top flap when i tried to open it, cause it was hard to unbox. does anyone know if i should go and return it for a new one?

Thoughts on Vice 3, or LTD, or Ten?
I received Vice 3 and got to wear it yesterday. I found the shadows super soft and buttery. I have a lot of UD palettes and singles, but Vice 3 kind of reminds me of the shadow formula in their Pulp Fiction palette. Anyone else?   i was particularly interested in the reds. I used Sonic yesterday and it did not look like the color I thought it would when it went on my lid. I didn't dislike it but was just surprised - I was expecting kind of a ruby color. But I loved the base shade I picked and my crease color. It is a palette with lots of options and possibilities!   i have that and Ten. I will try to swatch them, especially the liners since I have so many other UD liners already, I can see if there are any that exist that are close.   just wondering if anyone else had thoughts on the shadow formulas in Vice 3 or LTD, or on the colors in Ten.

upperlid puffiness after eye makeup removal
I have sensitive skin in general. If I put on any kind of eye makeup, I am fine for 8-12 hours. But when I remove the makeup (does not matter how I do it: using a wash, wipes, makeup remover), my upper lid swells up for a day or so. I have to skip a day of eye makeup to go back to normal.  I have thrown mascaras away thinking the tube is too old, no difference. I truly think if I sleep in my makeup, I will be fine (not that I want to do that). I have noticed the more tugging I do on the lid, the more the swelling. I use UD primer on lids, I also tried too face primer with no difference. I use origins eye cream on lower lid but nothing for upper lid.I use dior mascara, UD shadows, smashbox concealer for lower lid( which is starting to cake for no good reason). Any suggestions? thanks in advance. I would go to a sephora store for advice but the closest one to me is an hour away!

Clairsonic Mia 3 vs Mia 2
Hi Ladies,    I need some help in deciding with Clairsonic to get. I've narrowed it down to either the Mia 2 or 3 and I can't seem to decide between the two. I'm really liking the holiday sets that are out.    A little about me: I have normal/combo skin, not acne prone or anything. My t-zone can get a little oily. I've been using Clinique's 3 Step # 2 for the past 10 years or so and I've been happy with it, but I think its time to add some deeper cleaning/exfoliating.   Is the Mia 3 with the Cashmere Brush Head worth the extra $50?  The  Mia 2 Hydra Cleanse Set comes with 2 brush heads - is that a better buy? I'm in Canada, so the prices I've noted are higher than the US prices.   $230 Mia 3 Holiday Gift Set Comes with: - White Mia 3/Aria  - Clarisonic Lux Cashmere Cleanse Brush Head  - Drying stand  - USB Enabled Universal Voltage pLink® Charger  - 1 oz Clarisonic Gentle Hydro Cleanser  - 0.1 oz Amorepacific Moisture Bound Rejuvenating Eye Treatment Gel  - 0.5 oz Caudalie Premier Cru The Cream  - 0.23 oz Algenist Advanced Anti-Aging Repairing Oil  - 5 Dr. Dennis Gross Skincare™ Alpha Beta® Peels, Original Formula    $180 Mia 2 Glow Holiday Set: - Joy Mia 2  - Sensitive Brush Head  - Protective Travel Case  - Universal Voltage pLink® Charger  - 3 oz Philosophy® Purity Made Simple Cleanser  - 0.5 oz Ole Henriksen Truth Serum® Collagen Booster  - 0.17 Bliss® Triple Oxygen® ex-'glow'-sion! Vitabead-infused moisture cream  - 4 Kate Somerville® Somerville360® Face Self Tanning Pad   $180 Mia 2 Winter Hydration Set: - Mia2™ Cleansing Brush  - 0.5 oz GLAMGLOW THIRSTYMUD™ Hydrating Treatment  - 2.0 oz First Aid Beauty Ultra Repair Cream  - 5 oz Boscia Purifying Cleansing Gel  - International pLink Charger for worldwide use      $180 Mia 2 Hydra Cleanse Set - Mia2™ Sonic Skin Cleansing Brush in Lavender  - Luxe Contour Brush Head - Satin Precision  - Luxe Facial Brush Head - Cashmere Cleanse  - 6 oz Gentle Hydro Cleanser  - International pLink Charger for worldwide use  - Protective travel case   I appreciate any help and opinions.

I got mine during the 4x point event last year, so I totally understand waiting for a better deal. I leave mine set on the side of the tub (I only use it in the shower)... see post

Order of using PTR Retinol Fusion PM and Clinique Acne Solution?
Hi all! Question on order of product application - should I be using the PTR Retional Fusion PM before or after Clinique Acne Gel? Can I also use the Clinique Dark Spot corrector somewhere in this routine? All of it should go before moisturizer, right?   I am trying to both treat current acne breakouts and prevent more in the future, as well as try to lighten dark spots caused by previous acne. I've always been a little confused regarding the order of things and figured I should ask.   Thanks!

Regime for sensitive sun damaged skin suggestions.
I am in my mid 30s and have very sensitive, fair skin.  At one  point years ago I got a terrible sunburn and it has left its mark inn my nose and especially my cheeks leaving them bright pink at all times.     My my skin tends to be  on the dry side with beginning fine lines. I do get dark eye circles if I do not use an eye cream.when I stay away from irritants I have no blemishes with the exception of hormone induced ones.  I can not use retinol, it is too harsh and I scab from it.     I have found that that dior products work very well with my skin chemistry.  I do not itch and they have a calming effect.  I am currently using hydra life  with essential one first  ( and mask) but an planing on switching to capture total when I run out now that I am hydrated  I always use sunscreen now! Are there other products that my be better to use or to use along with to help reduce the redness.  I have tried the Clinique redness reducing line and that inflamed my skin within minutes...   what at other masks and/ or peeks would be good to try?

Which Brush is the best?
Hi there, so I went into my local store and had to trade out my Tarte Amazonian Clay foundation for a darker shade, and when the Beauty Advisor applied the foundation to my face, I loved the brush she was using, but failed to ask her which one it was so I could purchase it. I also use the new bareMinerals Acne Preventing powder foundation, and am wondering which brush I should use for that as well? Thank you!
