Hi,   I bought a new Urban Decay 714 Mega Matte and when it came, it had some dots on it. I googled online and saw pics of the 714 with similar dots on it. Is this normal? Below is a pic I found online.

I have a few questions today. Today I was planning to go to sephora. I was wondering if we are able to get a 15-20 minute free makeover. Is the makeover free? What will they do in the makeover? Do we have to purchases something after the makeover? Is the iQ foundation test free? Who do we tell if we want a makeover and a iQ test done and how long is the wait usually ? Can you please get back to me as soon as possible. Thank you?

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?

I'm just starting Accutane. Mid 30s, have suffered since teens with mild/moderate very persistent hormonal acne.  Already after four days I'm getting very dry. I've heard that the bare minerals Complexion Rescue is a great option. Problem is that I don't have a store where I live so I'm concerned about choosing the right shade. up to now I've been using pur minerals 4in1 liquid foundation in light, but would that translate over to Vanilla(02) or buttercream(03). Makeup isn't my forte, I've always been very basic about it despite the skin imperfections, so any thoughts from those with more knowledge would be appreciated!

I'm very fair and burn easily, so I'm looking for a good face sunscreen. Most of the ones I've tried break me out or make my skin way too greasy. I need something that's SPF 30+ and can wear well with makeup.   Happy to hear recommendations from any brands or stores (high-end or drugstore), but I'd prefer products under $30.     Thank you!

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

Do you have a box full of perfume vials and/or a vanity covered in perfume bottles? Are you the Goldilocks of perfume, just looking for the perfect signature scent? Do you want an opportunity to post daily about how your perfume of the day smells oaky and smoky with hints of blackberry and currant, like a cigar in a whisky barrel rolling through a Mediterranean orchard on a breezy summer morning?   If you answered yes to any of the above, or you just want to hop on board for the ride, join us for a 31 days of perfume challenge starting January 1st ! Some of us from the 25 days of lipstick challenge wanted to continue the fun and exploration, and since many of us have so many perfume samples, we thought this challenge would be perfect. If you don't have 31 perfumes or hate everything that doesn't smell like Meyer lemons and fresh goat cream, that's fine--we're just aiming to use the neglected perfumes we have laying around and incorporate them into our perfume rotations.   And if you want more perfume vials, there's no better time than now to take a peek at Sephora's samples section.   Edit: Anyone can join in at anytime! We're here to support, live vicariously through, and encourage everyone in their olfactory adventures!

april showers bring....new (and old) favorites ! (an aside: i love just about everything i got in the sale this month; some stuff needs more time before i want to talk about it, but some stuff--after having for about 2 weeks now--are solidly favorites !). no skincare for me this month, just stickin' to my tried and true.   not pictured: KVD lip liner and CIRQUE nail polish (see below)   NARS dual intensity eyeshadow -- sycorax . i've been using it both as sheer smoke around the eyes, and as diffused liner. it's brilliant as both. i haven't used it wet on the lid, yet, so i can't speak for that, but used dry it is sheer but buildable, and not patchy (something i find quite hard to find in black shadows) i basically think this is a perfect product, and i can't believe it took me this long.  (" Sycorax is an unseen character in William Shakespeare's play The Tempest. She is a vicious and powerful witch and the mother of Caliban, one of the few native inhabitants of the island on which Prospero, the hero of the play, is stranded.") REAL TECHNIQUES eye shade + blend brush set. this set is the base shadow brush and the deluxe crease brush. i lovvvvve them. as a lot of y'all know, i'm not too fancy--i typically never use more than 2 colors on my eyes, and a fluffy blending brush does me just fine. the base shadow brush is just perfect--it picks up product with easy, and blends it with such ease. i haven't been using the deluxe crease brush much--but it's a perfect 'diffuser' brush, and i've used it some, too, for face powder on concentrated areas. NARS light reflecting loose powder . i've had this for a long time and use it regularly, if not sometimes rather sparsely. this month i found myself using it everyday and reminding myself just how gorgeous this stuff is. sets makeup, light perfectly diffuses pores and texture and gives a properly luminous--not shimmery or glittery--glow. LIP COMBO: MAC spice lipliner with NYX liquid suede 'soft spoken' . this dominated my look the first half of the month. darkened nude but totally wearable. some people don't like the liquid suede formula, but i adore it.  KAT VON D everlasting lip liner, lovecraft . this dominated the second half of the month for me. lovecraft is only slightly darker than the 'lovesick' everlasting liquid lip in 'lovesick' which is one of my very favorite nudey pinks. the formula is creamy but not slippy (i hate slippery lip pencils !), opaque and lasts ALL DAY. i wore this almost everyday since getting it, only to have it fall out of a pocket last night. i've already repurchased, because i don't want to be without it. my only qualm with this product is that i think it will not last longer than 6 weeks, as the softness of the formula leads to a lot of product being used at once. that $18 price tag will add up quickly if that's the case. NARS sun wash diffusing bronzer, 'laguna' . what can i say, i've worn this every single day since i got it. it's rather sheer but buildable, so foolproof (which i need as a bronzer newb) as well as suitable for fair skin. if you followed my experience of buying it in the NARS thread, i ended up getting laguna over the fair-skin intended 'seaside' which i was afraid would look too orange, and while i'm not sure how 'seaside' would've worked out, i can attest that laguna is not too dark for fair skin--aided, of course, by the lovely, sheer and MODERN formula. CIRQUE nail lacquer - 'fast fashion'.  i don't own this, i sell it in my shop and used the tester for an instagram post.  and i was instantly in love ! i'll likely be buying some for myself, and this is surprising for a few reasons: i'm not a nail person, i can't be bothered, as well ast....it's a pink ! a nude, warm (rather than the more ubiquitous cool) mauve, and i'm just feelin' it. i've painted my nails 4 times with it ! i never do that !  Spoiler (Highlight to read) BURBERRY eye contour shadow stick -- almond . perfect everyday shade for a bit of definition but otherwise natural look. if you're a fan of maybelline color tattoo in 'creamy beige' or mac paint pot 'groundwork', 'almond' is very similar, but in a stick (which i know some people prefer). it goes on very creamy, but dries down very quickly (blend fast !) and then doesn't budge. this one won't be leaving my makeup bag

HI, So, I've had my BeautyBlender for only a short period of time now. Recently, I noticed little black dots in blotches are over my beautyblender (BB). I wash my BB once a week with all my other brushes. I put my BB in the little container it comes in when I ordered it (I did not buy the specific brush cleaner for the BB). Then the other day I saw black dots in it!? I'm in complete shock! Is this....bacteria?!? I paid like 35 dollars!!!! Ewwww! If it's bacteria, I def don't want to use it. I'll probably buy another one, but how can i prevent this from happening again! Help please Thxs, Bianca

Posting all products that you see new on Sephora (though sometimes elsewhere as well).  I will heart all posts of something new.  Since the Spring collections are what is showing up, I started a new thread.  I might duplicate a few items from the past thread, sorry if I don't tag those who posted, but I don't want to cross tag just to note that you posted (and thanks for posting!!!).

Skincare Stories
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.

I've been having issues with foundation sliding off my skin and looking cakey shortly after application. I have tried every mattifying primer (Becca ever-matte, MUFE mattifying, estee edit pore vanishing stick, nars pore & shine control, tarte tinted BB treatment, hourglass veil mineral, smashbox, porefessional, etc.) and nothing works. I always pat the primer in rather than rubbing it in, as well, and this does not help.   My makeup doesn't apply properly to my nose or upper lip area (slides off, looks cakey right away) no matter what I use. I've tried a beauty blender and several different types of foundation brushes.    By midday, any foundation I try pills on my cheeks, and becomes very cakey and gross everywhere on my T-zone - particularly around my nose. Shine is also a major issue.    Currently using Nars Sheer Glow foundation, but this also happens with tinted moisturizers, Lancome Teint Idole, and Smashbox BB Water. I also set with UD De-Slick.    Current skincare: Olehenriksen Oil Control Toner, Good Genes, FAB Mattifying Moisture Gel or Clinique Dramatically Different Gel, and Origins GinZing eye cream.

Spoiler (Highlight to read)     Hey all - I need some help! I start work at 8 and by about 1-2, all of my makeup has faded and started to break up on my face. I have acne as well so it unfortunately starts to peek through. Even if I touch up with concealer, it will only give me like another two hours or so and it still looks far from how I started the day off. My skin is pretty oily, but I also have dry patches that my makeup start to cling to by that time.  I've always had issues with this even with using different products, but I currently use: Caudalie SOS Serum Smashbox Photo Finish Primer water L'oreal Infallible Pro Glow Foundation or Physicians Formula Organic Wear BB Cream Nars Creamy Concealer and/or Nars Soft Matte Complete Concealer Physicians Formula Bronzer Tarte Blush Smashbox Photo Finish Primer water I've tried a couple of primers and powders with the above, but they didn't seem to make a ton of difference or they made my face super dry and cakey.   Thanks!

  I bought a item today as a gift for my sister and got 3 free samples with it ... I got home and my sister told me she doesn't want it anymore so I have to return it!  My Question is: Do I need to give the 3 samples back alongside the return??

Sephora Show & Tell
We just launched a new brand at Sephora called Pretty Vulgar and, as you may be able to tell, the brand is all about beauty contradictions. Pretty Vulgar embraces all personalities from sweet to, well, vulgar. Their quality products are bundled up in unique and adorably vintage packaging! Let's discuss the brand's drool-worthy product…   The Pretty Birdie Eyeshadow Palette features 12 pigmented shades that come in matte and shimmery finishes. The majority of these creamy, blendable pigments come in vibrant shades with a several neutral tones as well. The On Point Liquid Eyeliner Pen is a long-wearing and pigmented eyeliner with packaging that emulates a traditional calligraphy pen. The Feathers Mascara features a long-wearing formula that is volumizing and also enriched with pro-vitamin B5 and sodium hyaluronate to maintain healthy lashes. The rose gold, bird cage packaging is distinctively gorgeous. My Lips Are Sealed Liquid Lipsticks all come in a metallic finish and offer a variety of lustrous, bright hues and everyday neutrals. The Lock It In Makeup Setting Spray sets your makeup, refreshes it throughout the day and rehydrates your skin whenever you need a pick-me-up. The pink spritzer bottle top adds an angelic touch.   What do you think of this packaging? Show & Tell!
