Hi everyone! So the past few weeks I've been really into stick foundations - both the hourglass vanish and the lancome teint idole. Both I love and find very similar except you need to swipe the lancome twice as much to get the same coverage as hourglass. That being said, the big problem is I can't get the foundation to "stick" to my nose or t-zone. I have applied with brush and beauty blender - brush application essentially wipes the foundation away, so beauty blender has been my go to. I have tried pore minimizing primers - e.g. porefessional, tarte timeless smoothing, as well as guerlain l'or (whichcauses my foundation to stick in weird areas making it patchy...only with these foundations though, I love it otherwise), and the foundation just slides around my face and breaks up. I set with laura mercier translucent and then spray UD all-nighter. I LOVE these foundations, but I am scared to touch my face because it will remove my makeup. I have also tried no primer, just my moisturizer (see below), which is better but it still ends up sliding off my nose relatively quickly. I consider my skin to be normal to dry. My skin routine is as follows: Night time: Cleanse (amorepacific) w/ foreo luna 2, tone (pixi glow tonic), facial sleeping oil (kiehl's), moisturize (first aid beauty) Day time: Same as night time but no oil. I was using a serum before moisturizing but I took that out because I thought it was causing my makeup to slide around, but I think it's the silicone primers. My next step is to try the veil mineral primer by hourglass. Does anyone have any advice on how to keep my foundation in place? Also, I should mention that this problem happens with most foundations, nothing seems to want to stick! But it's particularly bad with stick foundations. Any advice would be greatly appreciated!!!
I realized that the last time I purchased any new eye palettes was almost two years ago and my oldest one being 3 years old (TF original Chocolate Bar palette). That explains why I am a little bored with what i have. My current collection is the TF chocolate bar, semi sweet and born bon palettes as well as the TF sugar pop palette and the Tarte Aqualillies (my absolute favorite palette) palette. I am incredibly fair (I wear TF Born This Way in Snow) with blue eyes and light brown hair. I don't know if it is the age of my palettes but the TF chocolate bar palettes seem to be harder to blend than they used to, unless that is my imagination. I am uninspired by a lot of the palettes out right now but the two I am eyeing are the TF sweet peach and the Tarte tartlette in bloom. I am looking for something that will create a nice daytime look but can go a little darker for nighttime if needed. It seems lately that all my looks turn out darker, but that could just be me getting carried away trying to use a lot of shades. I am curious to try more Tarte eye products as I love the Aqualillies palette and it is my only experience with Tarte eye products. Does anyone know if they have a new eye palettes coming out soon? What do you think of the two palettes I am eyeing?Are they good options or should I stear clear? I forgot to mention, I have cool undertones if that helps. Thanks!

I am on the fence between Laguna and Casino. I currently use the regular Laguna for everyday contour, but I saw that this new version is lighter and more buildable. What color would you recommend for medium olive skin? I am NC30-35, and have peach undertones. I wear St. Mortiz in the tinted moisturizer, Santa Fe in the powder foundation, and Punjab in the foundation (all NARS).

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.

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!

Hey everyone! I was chosen to get some stuff for free to try from Sephora! The items are: Milk Makeup highlighters in Mars and Supernova Dior Pump and Volume Mascara Tocca Stella hair fragrance I have tried the Milk highlighters and swatched them on my arm as well as on both of my cheeks for you guys. I really love both! They apply well and don't stay feeling sticky on the cheeks after application. I think that Mars is great if you want something more natural/subtle, while Supernova is great for a sort of extra terrestrial feel . It was super hard to capture Mars in my photos though, but it is a sort of orangey color with a reddish shimmer (think Fireball by Urban Decay). It looks super great and natural once on the face though! Spoiler (Highlight to read) As for the Dior mascara, I haven't tried it yet but I opened it to check out the brush! I'm curious how it'll work for me.. I hope well! It doesn't look like other mascaras which I find myself using more often (think of an hourglass shaped brush with more dense bristles), but maybe this one will surprise me Photo in spoiler! Spoiler (Highlight to read) EDIT: Just tried the mascara on one eye... Omg.. LOOK AT MY LASHES. One eye has nothing and the other has two coats of the Dior mascara (applied one coat, then waited about 10 seconds before applying the next- no curling or primer used). This is amazing, wow. Sorta in shock, and if this doesn't flake and go wild, this is my new HG. And finally the hair fragrance! I got it in Stella and omg it smells so good. I sprayed one spray in my hair and it's lingering with me and all I can smell! It's very feminine and floral, it's quite sweet too and I think it smells stronger than many of my regular perfumes. I think this is something I'll spray onto my hair on windy days so the wind can lift my hair and spread the scent haha. Thank you so much for all of this Sephora! It really made me happy (especially with my low-buy and such lol).
Ladies (and gentlemen!) Since Canada seems to be getting different/fewer brands added to the website, and any cross-border new releases seem to be several days to weeks later than US releases, I thought we could use our own 'what's new/found in the wild' post. Please feel free to share any new products/brands you find on the Canadian site here.
I get the feeling that 70% of the reviews on Sephora.com are fake-- posted by the product distrubutor. I always click on the user and see if they've reviewed other items or not.. I mean, almost every product has at least 4 stars total. That seems a little unlikely. It bothers me.... Luckily they have a great return policy so you can try things out yourself. Thoughts?
Ive never bought any makeup from Sephora! Id like to make my first purchase. As a first time customer, what product would you recommend I try in the lipstick category? I am Indian, Wheaties in complexion and usually wear reds and picks bright and natural. I don't mind Matt,/glossy/anything else or trying something new.
Hi looking for color help I wear color Y31 for makeup forever ultra HD concealer and Neutral Linen for sephora collection matte perfection powder, can someone help me with a color for laura mercier tinted moisturizer?
I've become increasingly disappointed with the Play boxes. Anyone else feel the same? Partly because I feel the boxes contents are predictable for example, you'll get a face primer about every other month (or even every month). Which may be great for people who can use primers, but my skin loathes them (yes my Play profile is updated and correct). Throw it in the trash. If you get a makeup sample it is in some obscure color that may be fun to try on one time, but you're not walking out of the house with it on. Throw it in the trash. See the pattern, I pretty much throw almost everything I get in the trash. BUT every once in a while you'll get a gem of a sample and that just reinforces me to want to keep subscribing. When Play first came out I felt like there was better samples being sent, but now it's just whomever they have a deal with. Should I just hang in there and ride out this rough patch? Thoughts?
Please correct me if I'm wrong - I don't see a Dior Thread?!

Welcome! This thread is all about the SiJCP experience! These stores are different than the stand-alone Sephora stores and like everything else, there are pros & cons. Some of the pros: SiJCP has exclusive Sephora Favorites Sets ( which aren’t sold online ): Post a pic of any you may find out there in the wild GWP promos: sent out via email, snail mail or postcard offers in the store. There is usually no minimum purchase requirement but you will need the barcode. Be a pal? Post any offers you come across here Their own “Rewards”: the 100-pt’ers are usually different then stand-alone stores Some of the cons ( IMO ): Their own “Rewards”: which are hardly ever stocked The great mystery of the “ SiJCP Email Distribution List ” is still….you guessed it – a mystery! No one, not even store employees, know how to get on this email distribution list. The investigation is still ongoing Communication isn’t consistent and each store seems to operate differently. BTW, if you had a good experience at the store, please complete the survey – this means a lot to the hard working SA’s. Thanks everyone for your help
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?

Hey guys I just made it to Space NK Ndulge Deluxe! Is anybody here also a deluxe status? What awesome perks have you got? I know I get $10 per every $100, but besides that what other things should I look for? Thanks!
a place to post about all things Sephora Favorites sets: past, present and future. Have a question, please ask. Have a review, please post. Have pics, please show us. These sets are one of my favorite things about shopping at Sephora. I get to try a bunch of products for a lower price and always end up finding some HG items. Today, I got the Sephora Favorites: Beauty on the Fly. It was $42 plus ebates was at 8%. For me, I've either been wanting to try all of these items, or have tried and really like them. More pics and thoughts in the first post.
I need help! I want a natural everyday foundation. I have combination skin with not a lot of texture. I am in the color IQ 2y08 if someone could give me the best color match for it. Which of these two is best??
I am currently wearing a 3.25. in Urban Decay Naked Skin Weightless foundation. Once spring arrives, I'll wear a 3.5. I have cool toned skin with pink undertones. What shade would I wear in Kat Von D Lock-It Foundation? I purchased 52, but it's a little dark and will probably work fine in summer, but I'm hoping for a better match now.
I've been wanting to try out the Double Wear foundation from Estee Lauder, but don't have a Sephora that carries it in-store to get matched. I decided to just purchase online and return it if need be, but now I need help finding a shade. I've been using MUFE Ultra HD in the shade Y255 and it matches me perfectly. Can anyone recommend a double wear shade they think will work for me? Please and thank you!
Hey ladies, I've been using the Klairs C serum for the last three months, pretty religiously and it's been amazing. However, this morning I noticed a little yellow spot inside the pipette that disposes the serum. It's too large to enter or exit the pipette so I'm fairly certain that it's a fungal growth. I tried getting a picture but it's too small and the pipette glass is too reflective for a helpful image. However, like I said, I've only had the serum and been using it for 3 months. The serum has a shelf life of 12 months from opening the bottle. Has this happened to anyone else? I purchased the serum from sokoglam in late November. Also, what do you guys think? Is it contaminated?
