Spring/ Summer Found in the Wild 2016 Thread
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...

What steps do I need to do before using an overnight face mask? (cleansing, etc.)
I know for normal face masks you're supposed to cleanse first then use toner, serum, moisturizer, etc. afterwards, but what about for an overnight mask? Do you just cleanse then wear the mask overnight? I feel like this is a stupid question but I never really use face masks and was wanting to try some, including overnight ones.

Lipliner Shade Match
I love the color of the Sephora Collection lipliner in "pale beige", but it doesn't have anywhere near enough staying power. Are there any long-wearing lipliners (maybe one of the nars or similar) that are the same color?

Setting Powder Changing Concealer Color???
Hi everyone.  Whenever I set my under-eye concealer with a setting powder, I swear it changes the colour of my makeup. I can finally be ready in the morning and think that my makeup looks really nice - and then as soon as I set it, my dark under-eyes come peering back through my makeup, and sometimes even the colour of my concealer seems to have changed. I have been experiencing this problem for ages with several different translucent setting powders - Tarte, Makeup forever HD setting powder, Cinema secretes, Laura Mercier (that one made my eyes itch...) - just to name a few. At first I thought I was crazy, but I have heard other people mention experiencing the same sort of thing. I've never tried using a coloured powder, because I'm really not sure what to use... I have red hair & very fair, dry skin - I don't know if that info helps?    Hopefully someone will be able to help me out here!   Thanks

Need recommendations for a Body Glow/Shimmer (not tanner)
I need some recommendations on a good body shimmer product similar to the Natasha Denona Body Glow. I want something to put on my shoulders, collarbone, chest, and legs for an evening awards banquet. I already checked past posts and most of the stuff that comes up on BT are temporary self-tanners. I want something thats more of a body highlighter that won't rub off on my clothes, and something I can either purchase from Sephora, Ulta, or local drugstores. The reason being, is so that I can return it if I don't like the product, and I also need the product ASAP since I am leaving on my fiancé's work convention in two weeks and I need the product for that trip. Any help would be greatly appreciated. Thanks in advance

Q. Availability of Peter Thomas Roth Gentle Complexion Correction Pads
Hello,   I've been using the Peter Thomas Roth Gentle Complexion Corrections Pads for quite some time now. I noticed a month or two ago that they were out of stock, and now the website states that they cannot be shipped to the US.    I was wondering why is this item no longer available for purchase here? and will it be again? I also noticed that Sephora stores no longer carry this product.   I have had great results using the pads, and I would preferably like to continue using them as well as purchasing them through Sephora.    Otherwise, what other products would you recommend that are similar?   Greatly appreciate your response.   Thanks

Clinique BB cream shades comparison
I liked Clinique's Age Defense BB cream a lot, but Shade 1 was too light for me. Shade 2 doesn't work either. I have light skin with neutral/pink undertones. How does the Light shade in the Acne Solutions line and the Moisture Surge line compare? The Light in the Acne Solutions BB cream looks a little darker than Shade 1 and was wondering if that is the case when actually applied.   Thanks!

The models in the Clinique Pep Start ads are all very, very young.  Of course their skin care needs are quite different from those of someone like me (normal to dry, deep creases and large pores, 60 years old).  Does this mean Pep Start products are targeted for teenagers?

using liquid bronzers
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?
