The Question Thread: Because not all questions need their own thread.
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?

Which limited edition products and collections are must have and which to skip?
We've all felt the pain of those items that we would have gotten, should have gotten but now must pay way to much to buy from re-sellers.  Maybe collective BT minds can identify (while still in stock) the limited edition must haves. Heading into the holiday season the limited editions will likely be more extravagant and exciting.  I'm eyeing Burberry and Guerlain. Anyone have any thoughts on currently available or soon to be limited editions?   A lot of the holiday stuff is limited so I'm linking to the holiday thread as well :  http://community.sephora.com/t5/Beauty-Confessions /HOLIDAY-2016/td-p/2454167

Fall / Winter Found in the Wild 2016 (and Holiday Too!)
Until @TheSocialQuota wants to take this over again I'm going to keep the "Found in the Wild" thread going. All that is new on the Sephora site posted in one thread. If I remember correctly, sometime around mid-to-late August early holiday and many fall items start showing up on the Sephora site. So this thread is a place to post all of the new items or brands showing up here (or elsewhere if you want)....updated for Fall and Winter 2016. I will miss most so if you see a new item please post it!!

What's New On The Site Today, Canada?
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.

Sephora Canada Site Product Update Thread
Hello Canadian BTers!   I'm starting this new thread to act as the official update location of new launches, LE products, and brands that are on coming to the US site but may be launching (and returning) to Sephora's Canadian site at a different time. There are a lot of changes happening in real time over here, and in the spirit of communication, this thread is to keep our BTers abreast of the information we have. This is not going to be everything, and could also be subject to change (and hopefully we won't need this thread forever), but we are working with the Canadian team to get as much information for you as we can.   That being said, we will only be using this thread to speak to dates and info about big upcoming launches, LE products, and brands that are on the US site and are coming to the Sephora.ca site. If you have  a question about any of these things, drop it here, and we will do our best to track down the answer for you.   I realize that you guys are feeling all of the feelings right now about the new warehouse move, but this thread is not a venting loop, nor is it a thread to deal with customer service issues (as I don't have any access to our order systems). We've got quite a few of those on the community already (for totes good reason), but I'd like to keep this specific thread informational, if possible.   Okay on to the info!

Is the new formula X top coat thicker?
Hey guys! I just bought the new Formula X system (XCEL). I have used the old system for a long time and really like it. I just bought the new system and at first it seemed to be pretty much the same, the cleanser and primer worked well (even if the brush on the cleanser "splits" in the middle like many of the comments have pointed out) I did my main color and got to the top coat.... It was sooo THICK! It was really "sluggish" and hard to apply and made air bubbles. It was as if it was getting too old. I am wondering if I should replace it but I'm not sure if it's just that particular polish that's defective or if the new formula is thicker. HELP! has anyone tried both top coats and know if the new one is thicker?

My under eye circles are driving me crazy
Hi everyone! So during the past one or two years, my under eye circles have become so obnoxious. People assume I don't sleep when I get more than enough sleep.   I've tried the  Maybelline Instant Age Rewind Eraser Dark Circles Concealer + Treatment, the Estee Lauder Double Wear concealer and the MAC Pro Longwear concealer. While I absolutely love them all, I want heavier coverage. I still feel like you can still see some purple under my eyes. I'm also using the NYX color corrector for under eyes.   I started using a Tarte eye cream about a week ago so I have yet to see how it works.   Any suggestions on products/treatments for this problem? I have fair skin if that's any help.

12 Pans of Christmas!
Hey my beauties! I got this idea from the Reddit makeup community:   It's the ⭐️⭐️12 pans of Christmas!⭐️⭐️ We have exactly three months from now to pan as many items as possible so we can start the new year fresh. Anything you want to live your 2016 life in (but say goodbye to for 2017)?   Here's my list:   1. Stila grey shimmer eyeshadow - 80% done --Got this in the Grey Look quad from 2008. Mostly I'm jut sick of looking at it! I'm not including the fourth black shade here because even though I make an effort to use it, realistically I won't get enough use out of it to list here. It's just gonna be my go-to black until it's gone.  2. Stila pink shimmer eyeshadow - 40% done --Same as above. Use this for my browbone and inner corner highlights.  3. Stila matte buttercream eyeshadow  - 30% done (JUST hit pan yesterday) --Same as above. Use this to set my eye primer.  4. Clinique blush - 50% done --My mom gave this to me and it is so tightly packed that I swear the amount of budging is invisible. I have used it every day for months and it still looks the same as it did this summer. The half done is between my mom before me and accidentally dropping it. All the Clinique face powders I've tried are never-ending like this.  5. Crest Whitestrips - 50% done  --I bought these two springs ago. Time to use them up and get their benefits already before they sit around so long they become trash.  6. Victoria's Secret lipgloss - 5% done --A lovely customer bought this for me! It's one of two go-tos I keep in my purse. 7. NYX Strawberry Parfait butter gloss - 20% done --From a Target Beauty Box. I used to keep this at work, and now it's the other one in my purse.  8. Urban Decay Spandex glitter liner - 25% done --Adore this but it's starting to thicken up so I want to hurry and use it all up this season before I have to toss it anyway. Will likely buy another one though because I love it and have always loved it.  9. Wet n Wild red lip liner - 50% done --LOVE this! It's the perfect formula, color and wear for me. It's just that I've had it for so long that I'm worried it's going to go bad before it's finished. This will be another repurchase once it's done.  10. MAC fuschia lip liner - 10% done --Got this from my mom. Not really a fan: it's dry and has the look of a colored pencil once it's on. Will probably wear this under the lipglosses mentioned above.  11. L'Oreal Miss Manga blue mascara - 5 % done  --Love this but just want to use it up before it expires. Bought it earlier this year and have used it twice so it needs some lovin'. 12. GAP Dream More perfume - 60% done --I have had this for YEARS. It initially smelled so good on me but now the scent has evaporated and it smells more like alcohol. Subsequently, it gets used as a room spray because somehow the alcohol smell is stronger when it's actually on me. Works great for the room, though!       What are yours???

How long till you love it???!!
So I know most of us are constantly ordering and picking up new makeup and tools all the time. We anxiously await our new products to arrive and when we get it, it's more like yay...meh...on the display or in the draw or wherever we stash our makeup. Then some random rainy day pops up and we reach for something newish and 💘💖😍 love at last. This happens to me so often that I often wonder why I buy new stuff when I'm always tossing it aside for a while. I thought of this thread because I see a lot of our hauls and new stuff we're jumping all over, but how long does it take for us to put those things into regular rotation??   Right now I recently rediscovered (this week as I was getting ready to drop the kiddies to school) my love for my Mac studio fix powder foundation in NC45. This was my first ever foundation...let me rephrase that...though I still have my original compact, during the spring I bought a new one and never used it. As I was getting ready I wanted to just throw something on my face so I don't look like death when I meet my kids new teachers but was pressed for time. I applied concealer and plucked this out the draw and it was 💖💖 all over again. I throw on a little lipstick and blush and setting spray and I looked alive!!! How did I live without it for all this time??!!!   As for a newbie/impulse/hyped item, I discovered I really like my meteorites. I have 3 of the LE ones over the past couple of years and never really use them. I fall for the expensive hype and then they just sit there looking pretty. The one I really have been using the most are the rainbow pearls. It has taken me about a year to appreciate them lol.

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...

It is soooo sad if Sephora don't get it because there is no Ulta in Canada and the shipping is not cheap if you buy it from the tarte website!!  see post
Thank you Sephora and IT Cosmetics!!!!
Today I received IT Cosmetics Bye Bye Under Eye eye cream and illumination concealer gratis to test for Sephora!!   I'm so thankful and I am excited to try these items and let y'all know what I think!! I already LOVE the Bye Bye Under Eye regular concealer and I use it every day. The illumination seems exciting to use and I can't wait to compare the two. I've never tried IT eye cream, so it will be fun to try as well.    Thank you you so very much Sephora and It Cosmetics!!!

Is Sephora making you have rage ?
I am usually a very calm and reserved person .....with of course a love for the finer things in life ....such as makeup lol  However ....as I look for a good deal on the Sephora site in the 'sale' section ....every item that has some sort of appeal is always oos or ....not available ...please Sephora do not taunt us anymore .....I rather be Obliviant to things then live with the dread of....what if I just came 1 minute sooner ....could I have the chance to score this product .....and don't get me started with this reward bizarre .....Sephora claims to put new rewards between 9-5, two times a week .....I don't see the big deal ....when there is only 20-100 in stock .....like what the hell is that .....!  Sorry for my rant .... please feel free to express your pain .....or rage here

Sephora pulling down low reviews of Pat McGrath products
I got the Pat McGrath Flesh 2 online within 5 minutes of it going live and it arrived in the mail 2 days later. I tried it, was impressed, realized the colour was a near perfect dupe for a lipstick I already owned, and after wearing the product, discovered I didn't like how this matte lipstick wore on me throughout the day. I was ready to keep it because jeez, it's Pat McGrath, but realized it would be silly since I basically owned this same colour in a formula I liked better.   When I went to post my review, I discovered several others had posted 1 and 2 star reviews of the product, also finding that the matte wear on it wasn't impressive compared to (surprise surprise) Kat Von D products. In fact, I noticed that Flesh 2 is a near  perfect  dupe for Kat Von D Cathedral, and mentioned this in my review. Kat Von D doesn't market her Cathedral shade as a Fleshy nude shade, and so I thought I my public PSA that Flesh 2 pulled really dark on NC20 skin could be helpful.   Nowhere in Sephora's review guidelines do they say you can't make brand comparisons like this. Sephora only specifies that you can't link to non-Sephora websites. This implies that if I wanted to, I could even link  to the Cathedral lippie bullet in my Pat McGrath review,. See here for Sephora policy on writing reviews:    Write a Review When writing your reviews, be sure to keep it clean. (No obscenities, discriminatory language, spam content, or critical comments about other reviews or reviewers.) Please don't include personal contact information or non-Sephora URLs. We recommend that you focus on the product and include details about what you like or dislike about it.         I know there are some really awesome Hall of Famers here much more familiar with Sephora and the history of discussing their policies and community policing. Is this kind of brand policing a known fact? If it isn't stated in Sephora's policies then why is this kind of censorship permitted? It really makes me worry about trusting the rating of products I buy on Sephora if Sephora is policing low rating reviews and removing them. I was never informed my review was censored. I noticed that my review and every other 1 star review that was already there when I posted my review was gone today when I checked back on the Oldest Posted reviews for this product. That means that by my count, just from what I witnessed on September 9th, the number of 1 and 2 star reviews should be  double  what they are right now.
