How long does it take you to do your makeup?
I have a pretty comfy makeup station and I do love me my products and I pretty much use everything from soup (primer) to nuts (setting spray). But I've noticed that instead of getting faster, I'm just getting slower and sloooower in my makeup application. I really enjoy the process of putting my makeup on - it's probably my favorite part of the day. But I feel like it's taking me a ridiculously long time to do my fairly simple everyday look (I don't vary how I do my makeup TOO much from day-to-day). So I used the timer on my phone for the past three days: 42, 50, and 52 minutes! Yikes! You ladies have seen my makeup. Nothing on my face should take 52 minutes! I know I take a long time doing my eyebrows - they're always a trouble spot for me. I'm going to TRY and speed myself up over the next few days so I can at least have more time to walk my dog in the mornings before work.    So I'm curious...how long does it take YOU to do your makeup?

How to apply Bare Minerals original foundation
Ok so I recently bought Bare Minerals original foundation...I figured it would be an easy foundation for days I don't feel like doing much. I put on a primer, liquid illuminator and a little bit of cream concealer then went to apply the foundation with the tarte airbrush finish brush (recommended by TiffanyD to use with this foundation) and it looked terrible! It went on patchy and clinged to dry spots that didn't exist before I put it on. I do have dry skin, but have learned to moisturize well before applying foundation. I feel like I made a crucial mistake somewhere along during the application because I know this is a very loved foundation by many people. Anyone have any ideas?

Triple Threat: dark circles, deep set, golden undertones. HELP!!!
I need help with really bad dark circles. They are hereditary, no matter what I do they are not going anywhere. On top of that they are deep set. The concealer wears off very fast and it always ends up creasing. If that's not all, I have golden undertones. It is very difficult to find a color that matches my skin and it never looks right; I end up with a grayish shadow. I need help. I'm tired of looking tired with make up on.

OnTrac?
With my last few shipments I noticed that Sephora started using OnTrac for rouge free three day shipping. I don't like the OnTrac online tracking system because it doesn't list an estimated delivery date. So how am I supposed to know if my package is.... on track?   If anyone has any advice on how to fix this, I would love to hear it.

Anyone up for a drugstore challenge?
Have any of the beautiful ladies here on BT tried using drugstore cosmetics after solely using mid to high end stuff?  I have never really dabbled in drugstore and keep saying I will but then never follow through.  I have a mind to walkinto a drugstore and buy a bunch of goodies they have to offer and play around in drugstore for a week or two.  I'm wondering what I'm missing or what I'm not missing.   Is there anyone who could help me choose some items they like or who would like to post solely drugstore looks and review their experiences with them?  I think it would be fun

New Urban Decay Full Frontal Lipstick Stash
Zadidoll just posted this find from Urban Decay's website and I have to say I'm smitten.  $39 and not yet for sale on their website, but I'm sure it will be available soon.  Assuming it will also be available on Sephora at some point?    The set contains six deluxe minis with three new shades, Ladyflower (bright rose-pink), Crush and Illicit (sheer baby pink) and three bestsellers Gash, Liar and F-Bomb.  Also included is a full-size 24/7 Glide-On Lip Pencil in Ozone.   What do you think?

Q. Extreme concealer frustration
This is my first time posting here, and I am in desperate need of some advice. I have tried several different concealers (both drugstore and high-end from Sephora) and have yet to find a product that really matches my skin-tone. I have quite pale skin (some would say very pale) with pink undertones, which are not deep at all. For reference, the shade 001 (Light) in Dior's Diorskin Nude BB Crème matches my skin flawlessly.   Essentially, my problem is that all of the concealers I've tried have an orange or yellow base, and I need one with more of a pink base, but I've been unable to find one. I'm currently contemplating trying the Amazing Cosmetics Amazing Concealer in Fair, but from looking at the swatch online here, it also looks like it has more of a yellow/orange base and I'm leery of spending the money if I'm just going to have to return it. I've been unable to find any youtube video reviews of that shade, and my closest Sephora store doesn't carry them.   So, I am taking to this board in the hopes that one of you wonderful readers will be able to help me with my dilemma. Also for reference, I've tried Bobbi Brown's Face Touch-up Stick in Warm Ivory (the shade that was recommended to me) and it too is too orange. I've also tried Tarte's  Maracuja Creaseless Concealer in Fair, but it was too light. I'm currently using the Nars Creamy Concealer in Vanilla, but it too has a more orange base, and it doesn't work well for me when I have to use it to cover acne blemishes; I wind up with patches on my face that are darker than the rest of my skin because of the concealer's base tone.   I've also tried Laura Mercier's Secret Camouflage in SC 2, thinking I could blend a custom color, but it was too cake-y in texture and also had the same issue with the orange base tones. I realize I've rambled a lot here, but it's a frustrating situation. I would greatly appreciate any advice or opinions on which product might work for me. The other alternative is to drive to my nearest Sephora store and get in-store help; and that store is 80 miles away. Thank you very much in advance for your advice/help!

I know this post is similar to many others…but a lot of them are updates on new items (which is great and how I'm finding out about new things!!).  But I'm curious, as I try to sort out what I most want, what items are really "must haves" (or most want) as opposed to just being special for the holidays.

Customized Online Samples?
I am fortunate enough to live next to several Sephora locations so I can stop by to test out a product in person or ask for samples in stores.  However, for people who shop online because they don't live near a Sephora or for homebodies like myself, wouldn't it be great if we could receive samples of almost anything on the website instead of the small selection of samples we are confined to?  I think sometimes people who don't have access to a store or for items that are only sold online, offering samples or foundations and skin care online could help reduce the amount of returns.  Even if it's for a small fee I think that would be reasonable.  CRC lets you purchase small samples of various foundations online to test the color/finish.  I highly doubt Sephora will start doing this -_- but does anyone else think this would be more convenient?  Also, this might help avoid incidences when your samples or point perks are substituted with something you really don't want.

Heat distroying my make up...
This unbearable California heat has done it! It has wreaked havoc on my lippies. So its 102+ for the past week here. Normally the heat doesn't do much damage because usually it gets nice a cool at night. Usually in the mid 60s. But this past week it hasn't been cooling down at all. And...we don't have central air. So today while cleaning out and taking stock some of my lovely lippies fell victim to the consistent heat. Now I understand if I had carelessly left a lippy in the car in the heat or accidentally let one roll into the oven but they were just sitting there, in the room, minding their own business. *Sigh*    Anyone else have their make up ruined by external forces beyond your control?

I am looking for an eye cream to help with dryness around my eyes. My skin around my eyes is so dry that the outside corners crack a bit and I sometimes develop dry skin under my eye.

Skin Care Regimen for oily, post-acne skin?
What are a few awesome products from Sephora for a complete   skin care regimen to help someone with post-acne scars/discoloration or dark spots/oily skin in order to brighten up and even out the skin's tone and texture?   I don't get acne anytime during the month EXCEPT when it's "that time" of the month, so that is not my main concern. It's more about the acne I had when I was younger and the discoloration and unevenness it has left on my skin. Just looking for something to brighten, even out, and smooth my skin out!   I'm thinking exfoliator, peel, moisturizer, cleanser? Thoughts? Thank you!
