Best Japanese Products and Brands
Yes, I'm still on my Asian brand kick.  What are the best Japanese products and brands?  They're so pricey!!!!  Is there a better (meaning cheaper) way to buy them?  Are they cheaper in Japan (yes, I know the flight cost isn't easily amortized). Any brands not here that people absolutely love? Thanks!!

Are you "trialing" a new product ? Want to talk about it ?
trying new products can be...overwhelming. do you love a product because it works ? can you tell right away if it's performing the way you want it to ? sometimes i'm so happy to finally try something and let my enthusiasm blind my  actual  impression of it (at least at first )   it takes time to come to proper conclusions ! particularly when it comes to skincare, but makeup too.   so here's a thread where we can discuss our experiences while trying a product  for a first time. it can also be a place that people can reference if they're considering a new product.   right now i'm trying a sample of the REN v-cense night cream. i've only used it for 2 nights so far, but i LOVE IT. i love it so much i'm tempted to go ahead and grab it up, but i need to make sure it doesn't break me out over time (it contains shea butter which *can* be a breakout trigger for me, but not necessarily). it smells of frankincense which i adore, but i know for some people would be a turn off.   i'm also checking out the VICHY aqualia thermal serum. i really love the CAUDALIE vinosource s.o.s. thirst quenching serum, and prefer the texture of it to the VICHY, but think the caudalie may break me out slightly (i also was probably overusing it...i was very enthusiastic). so i'm just trying to figure out which i prefer.   how about you ?

Moisturizing cleanser
Alright so since it is winter, my skin is more dry. I used Peter Thomas Roth Rose cleanser but I forgot my nearly empty bottle at a hotel. I also recently purchased the Fresh Seaberry Oil, Origins Make A Difference Moisturizer. But I still feel like my face is dry. I need a moisturizing cleanser. I am not usually dry but only in winter. Any recommendations?

Foundation hack that Changed my life. Powder before Foundation.
I saw this on YouTube and it really did work. It's kind of weird though. Using loose powder before applying your liquid foundation. What you do is put on your moisturizer and.or primer as usual then you powder your face with loose powder, not pressed powder in a compact. It can be loose powder such as Nars Loose Setting Powder or even one that has color to it like Urban Decay Ultra Definition Loose Powder which is what I use. So you powder your face then apply your liquid foundation or BB cream. The powder gives the liquid something to stick to and holds your skin care in place underneath the foundation. I found that I use less foundation this way also. After the foundation you only need to powder again in you T zone. My foundation stays in place and doesn't slip and slide. Even not coming off so easily on shirts. I love this hack, it may not work for everyone but it's worth a try. Good luck!

Spring 2015 Collections
So I've seen a couple of threads for specific Spring 2015 launches (MUFE 50 Shades, Nars, etc). I thought it would be cool to post any and all new collection releases/launches in the same thread. I was searching around trying to find the newest stuff and scout out my next purchases. Here's what I've found so far:   Dior Spring 2015 - Kingdom of Colors (Images from A Bit Of Blusher)     Guerlain Spring 2015 (Images from Rouge Deluxe) Isn't this collection so cute?!?!

Supposed to be VIB Rouge...
I was not credited the points from my in-store purchase from yesterday. I am finally *supposed* to be a VIB Rouge member, and was expecting to have the associate acknowledge that and give me a new card with the other benefits, just as they had done when I became a VIB member. However, the store was especially busy and the associate took me beside the counter and used a handheld device to ring my purchase. She seemed very rushed and a little flustered; the machine was giving her some problems. She scanned my VIB card and I knew that my purchase was more than what I needed to become a Rouge member, but she said nothing. She mentioned my previous amount of points so I assumed that my card was credited and I didn't want to question her because I knew she was feeling busy - I worked retail for years, I can empathize! Now I wish I had pressed the issue.   I called customer service today, got my points added but had to fill out a form to be sent to someone else to "approve" my Rouge status, which may take up to TWO WEEKS! And she said that they will ask me to send in my receipt! Who has time for that? Keep in mind that I have had to spend over $1,000 to become a Rouge member and I chose to buy 2 pricey Fereo products at Sephora because I wanted the additional points. I could have purchased them elsewhere.   I'm so disappointed that I have to wait just to have someone address my problem, and then have to send in proof when it could have been handled correctly at the time of purchase. This is a warning to future customers that don't want to inconvenience anyone else! You're the one that's inconvenienced in the end.

Too much vitamin C?
I started using Ole Henrikson's vitamin C Truth serum about 2 months ago, and I love it. I just ordered the Whole Truth kit (moisturizer and eye cream plus the serum) as well. My skin has been pretty dry this winter (combo skin, particularly dry and acne prone chin and jawline) so I'm thinking about adding a night cream and/or CC cream to my regime. Should I use products with vitamin C in them, or is there such a thing as "too much"?

30 day lipstick challenge
For those of us that love lipsticks and have several of them, do you rotate or reach for the same few? I wear some more than others. And some have been neglected a lot (although they are very pretty). I thought of holding myself to wearing a new lipstick everyday for 30 days. Lets see how long this will last. If I last 30 days, maybe I will go longer.  Ha...lets see if I last 2 weeks.   Anybody else?  I am quite excited about it....   Spoiler (Highlight to read) Day 1, 11/10/14 - Maybelline Vivids in Vivid Rose.

Impossible Holy Grail
So I've been on the hunt for a HG foundation since I got into makeup about 3 years ago. I've found tons of eyeshadows I love (I was a UD junkie for a while, but I've branched out into Too Faced, Smashbox, Nars, and I'm saving up money for the new Hourglass palettes), and found my HG concealer (Nars Radiant Creamy Concealer, you are a blessing from the angels). I've tried about 80% of the mascaras on the market, and have fallen in love with a few of them (I don't think I'll ever find a HG mascara, because my standards are frankly way too high). But the one product I can never find a good match for is foundation. I'll find a product that will do nice things for a while, but after a few weeks of wear, it won't wear the same on my skin anymore. It'll start oxidizing, it won't build the same, or it'll look more orange than it used to. Things like that. To add to it, my skin tone is somehow wildly all over the place. I've done ColorIQ more times than I can count, and I've gotten a different number every time, ranging from 5R02 to 5Y06. I've thought I've found my HG foundation half a dozen times. Urban Decay Naked Skin, Nars Tinted Moisturizer, Nars Sheer Glow, Make Up For Ever HD Foundation, Hourglass Immaculate Mattifying Foundation, Kat Von D Lock-It Tattoo Foundation, Tarte Amazonian Clay Full Coverage Foundation, BareMinerals Ready Foundation... Feels like I've tried it all.   Does anyone else have a product they just can't find a HG for?

Post it here - http://community.sephora.com/t5/Hauls/Deals-too-go od-to-pass-Up/td-p/1513386 Feel free to post if you find something from your favorite brand. Link to the item, and let us know the price, and brief description so that folks can at a glance decide if they want to clickie to <3 Love or $$ Buy. ^-^ As an FYI, here are the pages I'm trolling for what was newly added today. Usually pretty easy to do because the newest items have 20 loves or less and no reviews. In general I will check in the late afternoon and post what I find. Most new items get listed on Tuesday evenings through Wednesday. Here is the retired thread in case you wanted to reference something. http://community.sephora.com/t5/Sephora-com/Found- in-the-Wild-quot-New-quot/td-p/1668202 Acqua di Parma, Ardency Inn, Antasasia, Atelier Cologne, BareMinerals, Bite Beauty, Chloe, Elizabeth and James, Givenchy, Guerlain, Josie Maran, Jurlique, L'Occitane, Lavanilla, Marc Jacobs Makeup, Marc Jacobs Perfume, Marula, NEST, Obsessive Compulsive Cosmetics, Sephora Collection, Sephora Favorites, Smashbox, Tarte, Tata Harper, Thierry Mugler, Tocca, TokyoMilk Dark, Too Faced, Urban Decay, Victor & Rolf, and the Gift Box section.

Deals too good to pass Up!
The only thing I love more than shopping is getting a great deal.  I've created a website, with the same name as this thread (minus spaces and the exclamation point), to share my passion with more people.  If you share here and want to keep the deal exclusive to BT members, just write for BT only in the post.   I will heart every deal I see .  If your deal does not have a heart from me, I have not seen it yet.  A heart with no comment means I already had your deal on my site or am not planning on listing it.   Should I use your deal, I will thank you here and on my site.  Thanks again to everyone who shares!   I've received quite a few requests for my site link.  There is a link to my site (and other great ones) on the following thread.  This is the only place outside of private messages I can share it per BT guidelines.    http://community.sephora.com/t5/BeautyTalk-Feedbac k/Post-a-link-to-your-Beauty-Blog/m-p/1863492#M536 ...    If you find something full priced that is new and awesome, share it here.   http://community.sephora.com/t5/Sephora-com/Spring -Summer-2015-Found-in-the-Wild-quot-New-quot/m-p/1 ...

Tarte Blush in Exposed
I want to get the Tarte blush in exposed but I am not sure if it will show up on my skin. I wear MUFE HD foundation in 173. I would appreciate suggestions for other natural/neutral toned blushes from Tarte and other brands. Thanks

I wear 173 as well. I find Tarte Dazzled to show up quite well when built up. It's a great neutral looking shade that wears a long time. Some of my other go-tos are: NA... see post
