We swatched Urban Decay's new Naked3(!!) palette to see how the colors looked on different skintones. What do you think?
Do you have a swatch of this palette? Post a pic in the thread below!

Hi girls! So I ordered quite a few of the $10 steals and I thought it would be fun for us to write up mini review on them for each other. Mine arrived last night, so I've only tried two so far. Eyeko Mascara/Eyeliner (still available) I was SO excited to try the Eyeko Skinny Eyeliner.... and it wasn't very pigmented. Maybe it is a little dry and I need to shake it up (??) and try again tomorrow. I'll report back. I haven't tried the mascara yet but the wand is very unique. http://www.sephora.com/skinny-mini-duo-P377021?sku Id=1470962 Caudalie Hand Cream and Lip Conditioner Duo (sold out- individual links below) I had been wanting to try the lip conditioner and I constantly use hand lotion so this was perfect for me. The lip conditioner is very smooth and smells nice. The hand lotion smells sooooo good (sort of citrusy?) and my hands feel lovely! What do you guys think of your $10 sets? http://www.sephora.com/lip-conditioner-P6034?skuId =241653 http://www.sephora.com/h-nail-cream-P152203?skuId= 941609
I would have gotten mine today had UPS not left 2 of my boxes behind at the shipping facility :face palm: Hopefully tomorrow they won't leave without it. I managed to get one of my Sephora packages from black Friday though. OT: the UPS guy was using a budget truck to make deliveries...interesting, he said the other truck was too full so he had to use it....
I haven't seen questions posted in awhile, so I thought I'd throw some out there! 1. How do you feel about the Pantone Color of the Year (Radiant Orchid)? 2. Do you follow any beauty blogs? Care to share your favs? 3. Where are you in your holiday shopping (haven't started, done, halfway, etc)? 4. How many cousins do you have? Are you close to any of them? 5. Did you have any sort of calendar for 2013? What theme did it have?
Okay, so I'm a mini perfume addict and the 25 days of giving minis totally got my attention. Since monday, I've been placing a minimum of $25 orders just to be able to redeem a mini. I don't wanna be spending $25 everyday just to get minis coz my wallet is still recovering from all the November shopping I made. Question is: Can I just place just ONE $1 order EVERY DAY til the 25th day just so I can redeem a mini perfume everyday? Will I get banned if I do this? Mods?
Hello my beautiful people!!! I just reached 2,000 hearts! YAY!!! And I got no shame, I am going to throw myself a Heart Party!!!

Also, I am so grateful that BT has brought me closer to a few members that I am honored to call a true friend for life!! And everyone gets a pink Chanel cupcake!!! YAY!!! Love you all!!!
Yayyy! I just got it! I set my alarm for 2AM CST, which is the equivalent of 12AM PST. It looks like it was probably up for quite some time, but I can't be sure. Anyway, I was able to order it. YAY! *Edit: It appears that it went live at 12PM CST, according to Sephora's facebook page.*
**UPDATED 12/5** Hey guys and gals - I know with all the problems that's going on right now (cancelled orders, no good deals for BF weekend, etc) that Sephora has had many people feeling pretty down but I just saw this on the main page :: 25 Days of Merry Crazy Giveaway.

Why did you ask if I had a big family? Oh, uhhhh.. these 8 Philosophy Purity cleansers? Oh yeah... that's right, I have a really big family! This is all for them!!!!! :::nervous laughter::: It would be totally crazy if this was all for me. Ah ah ha ha... :::Hangs head in shame::: ---------------------- The above encounter has happened to me more than once. The most embarrassing was when buying family size potato salad--I live alone and I still like a good value. Is that so wrong?!?!?
It's here! The 2014 Pantone Color of the Year is Radiant Orchid, a beautiful (and versatile!) floral flush.
The Sephora + PANTONE collection will be available in 2014 (and will be gorg, I'm sure), but in the meantime, let's go through our beauty bags. What's your favorite beauty product in Radiant Orchid (or your closest approximation)?
Show & Tell!

I'm thinking of buying it with my gift card. I'm on the east coast so would probably have to stay up half the night for it to show up on the website. It's supposed to be available tomorrow (the 6th). Anybody going to stay up late to get it?
I am taking it on faith that Sephora will get the gift cards into your hands soon. I wanted to start a happy, what did you get thread. This way we can post our new beauty prizes here. I will start. I got the HOURGLASS Immaculate Liquid Powder Foundation Mattifying Oil Free in Shell. Thanks Sephora, and I want to give a shout out to the Mod Kevin. Kevin if you are listening, you are doing a good job. Everyone here loves Sephora, and just doesn't want to be forgotten, that is the reason for all the anxiety about the gift cards.
The site worked SO WELL this year! I got into the site and had a completed order at 12:01 EST!!! Last year it took me an HOUR to order on the site. Anyways, I grabbed the Kate Somerville, Ole Henriksen, and the Art of Shaving $10 deals. Three presents/stocking stuffers down on my list! What did everyone else get?
I check the sale section at least once a day. It's been pretty consistent for a while now, but today, wham!! Lots of great stuff! Snagged: Urban Decay Black Market liner set for $24 (that's $4 a liner, I'll split it up and it make great gifts when combined with some of the little shadow palettes I've bought!!) NARS nail polish in Disco Inferno for $5 A Nails Inc. nail polish for $5 (love their polishes!) Also got a gift for a relative who may know my login for BT so I won't list it here.
Title says it all. I'm just looking for new amazing things to try and I would love to know your absolute favorites! And then just tell me why you love it so much! You can list as many as you want but don't list your whole make up/skin care/hair care/whatever else collections just the ones that really stood out in amazement to you when you first tried them all the way u till today. Im kind of a newby to trying out all sorts of things. I've only really tried out sephora so mine will be from there but you guys could choose anywhere. Okay 1. Dior lip balm lip enhancer Why I love it: I lovee my natural lips. So I don't want to cover up my natural color (which is a bit of a redish pink) I just want them to stand out a little more. The balm brings blood flow to your lips in the same way a mood ring does to take your natural color and make it brighter! Now I get compliments all the time with people "wow I love that color is that your natural lip color or lip stick"? 2. My origins brightening eye cream: really helps to make tired eyes look wide awake add a touch of concealer and bam it looks like you had perfect rest! 3. Lancôme xl mascara booster mascara base: love this stuff makes a hugeee difference with my mascara and you dont have to layer as much mascara because it gives you that great layered look with just one or 2 other mascaras so that saves a bit of money lol. That's my only loves so far like I said I haven't tried too much.
i was just wondering what kind of fears people have. I have a TON of fears, including heavy rain + thunder, spiders, and crowds of people (anxiety). Also, how do you guys cope with your fears? What kinds of things comfort you?
I just happened to see a teeny tiny little sign about this promo 2 months ago, forgot all about it but my phone calendar helpfully reminded me! Now until the 15th while supplies last, get a free mini chubby stick intense in Broadest Berry or MightiestMaraschino with a skin consultation. Pretty sure this is nationwide ( not sure about Canada, though). Is it sad that I went to 2 Macy's to get both? ( There are 2 stores within 5 miles of me so it's not as bad as it sounds, right?)
Anyone buy beauty products from Overstock? They don't have merchants selling on their site like Amazon or Ebay right? My mom's getting me SpiceBomb as a stocking stuffer & I told her I'd hunt down a good deal for her. I saw it on Overstock for $50 it's usually between $70-$80 for the 1.7 oz. I kept browsing on Overstock & saw they have 2 pack Clarisonic brush heads for $18.49, originally priced at $43. So before I tell her to get it from Overstock, I want to make sure it's real. Not only for the ingredients, but my family does not support fakes/knock-offs! We don't support child labor, human/drug trafficking, terrorism... I would feel so bad if I made my mom purchase it & find out it's a fake. I know you can normally find good deals on QVC, but this seems a bit too good to be true. Not to mention the picture looks a bit sketch.
Three hours ago, Urban Decay posted on Facebook, "...we’ve worked hard with our retail partners Beauty dotcom, Sephora and Ulta to move up the online launch of Naked3 to 12/6 instead of 12/9."
So there you go! At Sephora, Ulta, and Beauty dotcom it will be available this Friday! Everywhere else (e.g. department stores) will have it on 12/9.
There's clearly an underlying trend with my faves, but I promise they all translate differently on the eyes and for different purposes . These are all part of the permanent range and/or are still available for purchase. -Benefit Creaseless Cream Shadow in B-day Suit: This is my favorite base to use on days when I'm wearing neutral powdered eyeshadows. Despite its sheer nature, it really amps up any taupes or grays I layer over it. I find that Benefit Creaseless shadows aren't too long-wearing, which is why I prefer using them as bases. One pot will also last you for a couple of years without drying out. (MAC paint pots, I'm looking at you!) -Chanel Illusion D'ombre in Initiation: One of the best holiday purchases this year, this bad boy is packed with shimmer and glitter -- perfect for this time of year! However, the glitter particles do not migrate throughout the day. This is probably one of the more opaque Illusion D'ombres Chanel offers, and it's just beautiful. Just go and pick it up. You'll be thanking me later -Diorshow Fusion Mono in 821 Chimere: This is perfect for days when I'm running late but still want something on my eyes with minimal effort. Chimere pulls rose gold under some lights and goldish brown in others -- truly a multi-faceted shade! The shimmer is quite noticeable, don't get me wrong, but it's still toned down enough that I would say is work appropriate. -Maybelline Color Tattoo in Barely Beige: Maybelline really outdid themselves with these Color Tattoos, as I find them far superior than MAC paint pots in terms of staying power and not creasing as the day goes on. I particularly like using Barely Beige as a base for champagne and peachy-pink powdered shadows. I haven't had any issues with these cream shadows drying out, but even if they did, I'm not complaining as they're a fraction of the price of most higher end ones. -Tarte Amazonian Clay Waterproof Cream Shadow in Slate: I'm a huge fan of the Tarte Amazonian line for the eyes, and the huge dent in the pot is a good indication of how often I reach for this product. It's the perfect taupe shade in a cream form for me, as it pulls neither too warm nor too cool on my eyes. Again, another one of those pop on the lids and blend into the crease with my fingers of a shadow and I'm out the door. What are some of your favorite cream shadows?
So I've come to love all of you in the short time I've been here, but the amount of complaining that I'm seeing over the $20 off of $50 coupon not being sent out yet is getting a little riduculous. Yes, I understand it's not fair for those of us who haven't gotten emails yet when people have had physical cards for days now. Yes, I understand Sephora needs to get their act together and be on top of these things. Yes, I know a lot of people want to snag items online before they sell out. And yes, I know Sephora has been MAJORLY slacking lately in a lot of peoples eyes and that's not helping with the anxiety. But it's not even noon yet (EST anyway) the sale JUST started today. Just wait a littttle while longer, give it until at least midday (2pm-3pm seems adequate) before going off on a rampage. Or at least keep all complaing into one thread instead of starting a few threads for the same problem.
Okay ladies(gents), I really want to try a new foundation. I have been using the UD naked foundation in 3.5 and I'm not to big of a fan of it. I only bought it because a sephora employee suggested it to me. It's thick to me even when I hardly apply any it still looks not cakey but wierd on me like it doesn't want to apply in a nice thin layer. Okay here goes all my skin info: honestly I'm not sure if I have normal or oily skin. I just know it's not dry and it's not combination, because when it does get oily it's the same all over not just in a few places. I should probably know my skin type but I don't. :/ type of foundation I want: I don't think I like matte too much I like more of a natural yet gorgeous look. Something that makes my skin look flawless without it looking like I actually have something on my face. Like when you 1st step out of the shower and your skin looks all perfect and slightly dewy because it just got all that moisture. I don't care what the coverage is I can add concealer to cover a little more or add a primer to make the consistency a little less if needed too. If it is sheer I would prefer it to be able to be nicely buildable. I also don't care if it's liquid, cream, powder, ect. It can be anything as long as it looks flawless! Hmm I can't think of anything else besides a may be a tad acne prone. Thank you!
Hey girls, So I couldn't contain my feeling of joy when I heard that the hospital I work for has just recently opened a Transgender Youth Clinic. It's the first clinic in Toronto to be devoted to dealing with patients undergoing a gender transition. In a city like Toronto we don't have a whole lot of resources available for those who need the help to transition properly without ridicule. I'm just so thankful that they've finally done this and that these children can get the help they truly need. If I could get a job transfer to work with these youth I would do it in a heartbeat. I wouldn't want to see them go through the same struggles I did when I was transitioning. Anyways I just thought I would share this great news because this is one thing I truly feel happy about right now :-D !!
(Not to be confused with the Nordstrom's fashion rewards!) I would call this Nordstrom's version of Beauty Insider as membership is free, and every 100 pt qualifies for a deluxe-sized sample and 500 pts a "premium beauty reward." Apparently this program is still in initial stages, and only a handful of stores are currently participating. Online beauty purchases count towards the points but rewards can only be redeemed at the participating stores at the moment. List of participating stores: Cherry Creek Shopping Center, Christiana Mall, City Creek Center, Easton Town Center, Fashion Mall, Freehold Raceway Mall, International Plaza, Montclair Plaza, Oakbrook Center, Park Meadows, Roosevelt Field, Saint Louis Galleria, San Francisco Centre, Scottsdale Fashion Square, Spokane, The Mall at Green Hills, The Shops at Mission Viejo, Town Center at Boca Raton, Valley Fair and Waterside. Thoughts? Has anyone redeemed said reward(s)?
Just thought I'd let y'all know this promotion is currently going on on the Laura Mercier site! My top 3 picks would be Amethyst (a cult favorite for a reason!), Sand Glow (taupe perfection), and Rose Gold
