Bite Beauty Lip Kits - False Advertising?
I bought the lip kit because it seemed like a deal. 8 lipsticks of .07 oz size each it said. The regular size is .14 oz, the decision was easy.   But the more mini lipsticks I'm getting, the harder it is to believe each lipstick is .07 oz. I've compared it to the Kat Von D and Buxom minis and they seem like the same size as those two, yet they're only .04 oz. (Buxom looks taller but thinner).   If you have these, can you compare and tell me if I'm crazy? Is the .07oz lipstick only, or does it include packaging? Maybe they meant .07 for each tube, which has two lipsticks in one.

Belif Vs. Origins - Combination Oily Skin
So I'm stuck in a rut trying to figure out if I should continue with my current Origins regimen or try something new, such as Belif. I have combination oily skin. I'm currently using from Origins the Checks & Balances face wash, Zero Oil Toner, Gin-zing Moisturizer, and Original Skin serum. My face just doesn't feel the greatest after I'm done my routine aka my acne is still evident and my nose is still shiny.   Should I switch to Belif, if so what should I use? Or should I keep using Origins and maybe switch a few products?   Please help! <3

Contouring brush - help me find the right one
Alright, I need some opinions.    I need a contouring brush for powder. I currently have the KVD one (meh, not great for contouring), the tarte dual ended one (great for creams, not for powders), as well as an assortment of Sephora brushes that I've been making good with.   I want something that will: a) create a nice line for my cheekbones b) buff out the powder nicely along my hairline and neckline.   I liked the idea of the MJ no. 15, but it's been OOS for a few days.    NARS ITA is in stock, which I've been considering, but I don't know how well it'll buff out powder? Not interested in the EM dupe.    There's the Becca The One brush. It looks huge in person, so it's kinda daunting.    Also there's the MUFE buffing blush brush that would be good for buffing, but not for the lines.    So... any input? I'm open to other brushes or getting two if that's the only option, just keep in mind I'm in Canada, so ordering from other sites may mean crazy fees.

Jars....Why?
I don't understand why so many brands put their products in jars. It drives me crazy! Either I have to dip my finger in the product to get it out, or get a spatula that constantly needs cleaned- and it's messy. Plus, I've heard that while the jar is open, the active ingredients can break down (don't know how much truth there is in that, though.) So, what is the reason for brands using heavy, inconvenient jars instead of a pump? Does anyone prefer a jar over a pump? I think that some of the products with pumps are just as elegant looking as the jars. Personally, I am much more likely to purchase something with a pump, and have passed on a product just because it comes in a jar (but if it is something that people are really raving about, I might buy it just to satisfy my curiosity.)

What are the consequences of using rubbing alcohol directly on your face?
I went recently on vacation with a couple of friends so we got plenty of time to discuss our makeup and skin care routines. I found out one of them uses rubbing alcohol directly on her face after cleansing and my other friend I were quite shocked to be honest but she shut us up and told us it works amazingly for her skin and if she doesn’t use it, she breaks out terribly. I’d like to explain to her that is bad for her skin but I don’t know how so I’m asking you lovely BTers for a little help.      Thanks in advance, Yackie.

Any makeup suggestions for downturned eyes with prominent lids?
I posted something about this earlier, but it may have been confusing. For decades I thought I had round or protruding eyes. I definitely have prominent lids. I recently discovered (using the Smashbox YouTube video on eye shape) that my eyes would be what they consider to be downturned. I tried their recommendations for downturned eyes, but my lid is so big that their recommendations don't seem to do anything for me. I feel like I look pale and washed out with light shades on my lid and next to no eyeliner. Can anyone suggest an eye design for downturned eyes with prominent lids?

Always thought I was yellow toned, but was recommended a pink toned product
I'm curious on what you ladies would do.  I've always thought foundation products with a very slight yellow hue match my skin best (I've been 1Y07 or 1Y06 when using colorIQ in stores).  But when I talked to a Cover FX rep at the Rouge event she thought my tones were more pink and convinced me to buy the P30.  In fairness, the G30 was WAY too yellow for my skin so I was thinking I'd be more of a neutral in this line.  She only tested the product on my neck since I had a full face of makeup on and it seemed fine but I'm nervous.  I explained my hesitation to her for all the reasons above and she said just to return it if I didn't like it, but I try to use that only as a very last resort.   What would you do?

Surratt is available in Sephora stores!
I just went to Toronto eaton centre location to do some last minute shopping and I spotted Surratt! Unfortunately, the store was too packed, so I only snapped two photos of the eyeshadows. The blushes and lipsticks are almost all oos       FYI, the price on display is more expensive than actual price, so my guess is the Canadian price will go up very soon.   Single eyeshadows $22 ->$24 on display Blushes $35->$40 on display Lip gloss $35-> $40  on display Lip lustre $37->$43  on display   Hope this helps!

Unicorn Wanted and Sightings
Hi everyone,    Since there are many LE items or discontinued items that we search for, I wanted to know if there is any interest in maintaining a thread to post any unicorns we stumble upon and list where it can be found so others can try to find these items that they are looking for. I thought this might be useful as I found a few items on my trip and also found it extremely helpful when a fellow BT member posted about the availability of Tom Ford's Nude Dip on Selfridges a couple of months ago so that a few of us could finally order this LE item.  I also thought that if there are LE items that people are looking for, they could PM me and I could add it to the main thread so that others would know what others may be looking for. I could update the Found Unicorns on the main post weekly. Looking for your thoughts, suggestions? This would be strictly for limited edition items and discontinued items. Please include location, date found, and price if it is selling for less or more than regular retail price.

Dry skin, looking for a serum
So I have super dry skin. When I say dry I mean kind of scaly looking and yes I drink TONS of water and keep hydrated. As for my skin care routine I wash (Fresh soy cleanser in the morning and Philosophy purity made simple at night) and moisturize twice a day, sometimes exfoliate in the morning with dermalogica daily microfoliant if my skin is looking particularly rough, use origins drink up intensive overnight mask and exfoliate twice a week alternating between a chemical exfoliant and origins modern friction. Luckily it's finally starting to get a little better and I think it's thank to Embryolisse. I haven't been using it long and i'm really hoping it won't break me out, I have problems with cystic acne around the jaw, those pesky little bumps under the skin that never come to a head and just sit there. I use a topical acne treatment which i'm sure didn't help with my already dry skin. ANYWAY to get to the point of this whole thing, I'm looking for a serum to supplement my routine. I purchased the Estee Lauder Advanced Night Repair Synchronized Recovery Complex II and have been using it for about a month but it doesn't seem to be having much of an effect, any suggestions? Sorry, I realize this dragged on with a whole lot of information that is most likely unnecessary. Thanks in advance for your help!!!
