Just noticed that all of the spring stuff is showing up (early as always) but the thread is still specific to Winter (which it is...but tell the brands). So what have you found, dear BTers, that is new on Sephora...
I reside in Ontario, Canada and we're experiencing humidity which means not wearing any foundation as not only will my skin feel congested but it'll end up dripping off my face so I'm wondering if it's ok to mix a matte liquid bronzer (i.e. Benefit Dew the Hoola) with my moisturizer. Are there any Canadians out there who also can't wear foundation due to the humidity?
I want to try Gimme Brow (new formula), having seen lots of great reviews, but I'm not sure if I need medium or deep. I have (rapidly graying) brown hair, with darker eyebrows, so I'm thinking deep from the way the colors look on my screen. I'm currently using Boy Brow in brown, if that helps. The color is OK, but I'm not that impressed with the product.
Hi, I just read somewhere that if a foundation is too pink for you, it will leave a white cast on your face...is this true? I've always thought that a white cast was caused by SPF or the shade just being too light or whatever is in a lot of Asian BB creams (I've tried a few Asian BB creams and they all had that white cast on me). I have light skin with neutral-pink undertones and prefer full-coverage liquid foundations or BB creams. Most shades look too yellow on me, even some neutral shades, so I tend to choose cool shades. My closest color match is Neutrogena's Healthy Skin in Natural Ivory, but that's a lousy foundation, and next best is Clinique's Beyond Foundation in Alabaster...but it does leave a white cast. Should I be avoiding pink-based foundations in the future? Thanks!
I have the Ciate Geltox kit but I've run out of the cleanser that it came with and I'm also running low on the gel top coat. They don't sell either of these products individually, so what are some alternatives I can use with the lamp?
Hi! I am looking to purchase a liquid highlighter to add to foundation or as a highlighter itself to give me that summer glow. I am trying to decide between Becca Liquid Highlighter in Champagne Pop or Cover FX Custom Enhancer Drops in Moonlight or Celestial. I am quite pale and have combination skin but craving a radiant glow. I would love anyones opinions and suggestions! thanks!
Good morning all! Okay, so I currently have a farmer's tan (t-shirt tan) on my arms. I'm in a wedding next weekend and I need a self-tanner to help even out the white part of my upper arm to my more brown lower arm. I've never tried self-tanner before, so I'm looking for a no-fuss, self-tanner that can help me out. Any suggestions? Thanks JB

Hello! I am getting married next month and I need to find a good concealer to hide my dark circles brought on by wedding stress and lack of sleep! I have seen others wearing concealer that reflects the light in pictures and I really want to avoid that. What is a good product to avoid having that happen and how do I choose the correct color of concealer? Thanks so much for the help!

I really like how it covers blemishes without looking heavyI have oily skin and but dry patches on my cheekbones, in between my brows and chin.

Hi, I want to buy one of her glow palette. I'm very pale and only became light in the summer. I can only buy one of her palette right now and I'm torn between glow and sun dipped. I prefer to highlight than contour and I want to get good use out of these palette and use more than just 1 pan out of 4 . Which one would you suggest to buy first?
Hi, I used to use color 1W1 of Estee lauder, but I want to change this time. Since summer my color change slightly darker than color 1W1. Could you recommend any foundation for combination skin and slightly darker than color 1W1 BONE ?
I'm a beginner when it comes to contouring and I'm undecided whether to use a power kit or a creme kit. I'm aiming for a more natural look but I do have oily skin, so I'm not sure which kind to use. Please help!
Hi there, I have somewhat dry skin and suffer the occasional breakout. Right now I use Dior Airflash spray foundation with Cover FX mattifying translucent loose finishing powder. I like pretty full coverage foundation and want something extremely matte. I would love any suggestions for a primer, foundation, and compact powder combination that looks matte and natural while providing full coverage to my dry skin. I really like my Cover FX loose powder so I want to continue using that but the Airflash is just too expensive for not being exactly what I want. Thanks so much!
I need base that can cover redness and plays well with semi-sensitive, acne-prone, combination skin. I love the Dr Jart Premium BB sheerness and glow, but it makes my nose oily and doesn't cover the redness in my cheeks (even when I build it up). I like the Guerlain Lingerie de Peau foundation coverage and oil-absorbency, but it gets cakey and settles into all my fine lines (even when I sheer it out). Any ideas for a product with the best of both worlds (or at least not the drawbacks of either)?
Hi, I want to buy an eyeshadow palette, but my eyelids are dry and i don't like layering different kind of products. I was wondering if theres a creamy eyeshadow palette out there? or something not as drying. Thank you!
I am just wondering how long it took you ladies to fall in love with the BECCA backlight priming filter. I love the feel, and the scent when I first put it on - but the girl at sephora said it was amazing for dry skin and I still find it patches in certain areas (this is my problem with EVERYTHING)... I'm pairing it with Lancome Teint Miracle which has been the best foundation I've ever used... Any advice ?
