Hello BT!     Disclosure:   I was very lucky to have received a gift a little while ago from Sephora and Dior to try the new, reformulated Diorshow mascara. Here is my review below!   There was a great review from annec322 recently, too, and some others.  We had a death in the family  that took some time and prevented me from posting sooner, so I know this is bit like old news. However, the extended time before posting the review has given me a chance to use it daily and so I probably have more to say than if I'd used it just once or twice.  This was a VIBR exclusive online but now appears to be available to all for purchase.  The last time I used Diorshow, it was actually a blue, that I used primarily on the tips of my eyelashes. Anyway, on to my experience with the new Diorshow in 090 Black. Here is the package, the one I got has the traditional box (on the left) with a sleeve on the outside to show results and the new packaging, which claims (from Sephora website): "The patented Air-Lock™ wiper prevents the formula from being in contact with the air, keeping the mascara from drying in the tube, thereby allowing for fresh application day after day."       I really love the huge, full brush.  My typical favorites are traditionally mascaras like Urban Decay Perversion, Marc Jacobs Omega, etc. so a big difference I noticed right away is that the Diorshow is not as "wet" a formula as those are.  However, that doesn't diminish it's performance.  I really liked it and here are the top reasons why (because I like lists):  1. I found it to be extremely clump-free and smooth to apply, even multiple coats 2. It is lengthening and volumizing and one coat is plenty, but two gives even a bit more volume 3. The tapered tip allows you to reach the inner and outer corner lashes easily 4.  It wears all day on me (no primer was used) with absolutely no smudging or flaking whatsoever.   I often get some flaking from other formulas but just thought that was normal! 5.  It removes easily with any face washes I've tried, without any special removers, and without having to pull or tug at all.  I didn't realize how nice this was until I realized my bath towel doesn't get covered with black smudges.   I have some pics below of me with no mascara, with one coat of Diorshow and then with two coats of Diorshow.  Not too much difference is obvious in the pictures between one and two coats. Just for reference, I don't ever curl my lashes and in these pictures, wearing no lash primer. As has been mentioned before, it does have a floral scent to it, but for me, it's not a bother and I only smelled it in the tube/wand - no smell at all once on my eyes.   Please ignore my messy hair!  Looking back, I should have done something with it, though I kept my makeup minimum so you could see my lashes a little better.  I also probably should have tried a different angle because my eyes are so hooded, but I wanted to get this posted.     Anyway, thanks for reading, and thanks to Dior and Sephora for letting me try this!  Although I received this one for free, I would definitely purchase on my own in the future based on how well it performed.     No Mascara:    One Coat New Diorshow Mascara:    2 Coats New Diorshow Mascara: 
My hair is naturally dark brown. Therefore, my eyebrows are a a darker brown too. I'm getting my hair died a pastel-y lilac and was wondering if I should buy a lighter shade of brow pencil  and if that'll cover up my dark eyebrow hairs? Thanks in advance!
Just wanted to let all you Viseart addicts know that ALL of the palettes (including the newest ones — Cool Mattes, Dark Mattes and Editorial Brights) are available online at Musebeauty (google it).   Happy shopping! I ordered Dark Mattes yesterday!
So, I stopped into one of my local SiJCPs today and the Chrysallis palette was on sale for $20.  But they were sold out.  They said if any more came into the store, they would also be priced at $20 because they are being discontinued.    I called the rouge line and was told they could not price match the item and that it would continue to be sold at the $46 price online.  This really aggravates me. I'm so sick of the whole two seperate companies thing.  Technically couldn't I just buy it online, take it into the SiJCP, return it for $46 and re-buy it for $20?  So what's the point?     End rant. 
Are all of the eyeliners in the "Sephora Collection  Craig & Karl Felt Eyeliner Set" in black??
When doing older peoples eye makeup and or regular makeup, I find it hard to do because the skin tends to pull with the brush and then you can't do the makeup properly. What product should I use to help/prevent this?
why did sephora stop carrying the bm ready eyeshadow duos? Are they coming back or gone for good? I was specially interested in the shade epiphany...
Which type do you prefer. I personally use more pencils.. am I missing out? Also, anyone ever skip the eyeliner and just use shadow on the lash line?   Thanks
UPDATE: I had an allergic reaction when I applied this product to my eye area.  Luckily, I tested it on just one of my eyelids so only one is irratated and burning instead of both. I will be the first to admit that I do have sensitive skin but eye makeup has never aggravated me before, only lipsticks and skincare items.  I am shocked right now, very uncomfortable, and very unhappy.   I am returning this item.  I hope the rest of you do not have the skin reaction that I did!     Original post: As some of you may already be aware, Buxom has an awesome new product that allows you to easily create your own palette with any six colors as of your choosing.    I thought we could all share our custom palettes & swatches!     Swatches in the spoiler! Spoiler (Highlight to read) I found these to be more on the sheer side.  I used several brush stokes of each eye shadow to build up the color in my swatches.
Love the Ciate Triple Shot mascara but it is impossible to completely remove using Sephora eye makeup remover (rubbing,washing, rubbing again) anyone tried anything else as I'm tired of using so much remover and cotton pads everyday
I bought the Sephora Contour Eye Pencil 12hr Wear Waterproof.  After using it up to the point where one needs to twist the end to get more product... I realized my pencil does not give you more product with twisting.  Is this a defective pencil or is this how it is designed?  I have to think it's defective... there's no way that I would be charged $10 fo so little eyeliner... Does anyone else have this problem?  Is there a way to get the eyeliner out?   Thanks.

Are they worth it? Are they really different? I'm debating...heeeeelp me decide
Hi All, Anyone have an idea about a dupe for the Brush 239 by Mac in sephora store? This is a basic brush really for laying down and patting on color on the lid. 
Love!!! My TF chocolate bar - do you think the second is different enough to warrant having both?
I recently purchased my first matte palette - Too Faced Natural Matte. I am enjoying it so much that I would like to try more mattes but with some color this time, not just browns/greys/taupes. I'd like to see some pinks, purples, greens, etc. I haven't really been able to find a palette of more colorful mattes though. Any ideas? 
I'm in the market for a new brow product. I currently use Tarte's emphasEYES brow pencil (in Rich Brown) but I want I bit more precision in my application and I find that Tarte's product is a bit too soft and tends to get everywhere.   I'm looking for a natural and defined look. So nothing dramatic, but just something to make them darker, more defined and with clean lines. Lately whenever I use the Tarte spoolie to blend out the product, it gets everywhere and make my brows look blurry/fuzzy on the edges. Not a fan.   I'm assuming all of the Anastasia brow products are advertised as smudge proof, but are they all, really?   I got a sample of the powder duo and am trying it out today and I'm liking it. But I'm concerned about the powder falling out onto my cheeks throughout the day or as the product gets older. Have you experienced this? I'm also not sure how much use I'll get out of the lighter color. I think my sample is in Dark Brown and the light powder is a light brown...not sure if that would even show up on my brows!   I naturally have jet black hair that I lighten with semi-permanent dye into a dark, dark brown.   Which do you prefer, between the dipbrow, powder duo, brow wiz, and why?
I'm searching for a brow product. I've never used one before so I'd like one that is easy to use, looks natural and doesn't budge. I have fair skin and light-medium brown brows. Any suggestions?

Recently Dior reformulated their Diorshow mascara. The new formula is enriched with fibers to thicken without clumping and an air lock wiper was added to reduce oxygen interaction and therefore extend mascara lifetime. Sephora/Dior gifted me this mascara and I wanted to share my opinions.   My Lashes and typical routine:   Spoiler (Highlight to read) I have natural curl to my lashes and they have decent natural length too. Therefore, if you are looking for mascara that will curl your lashes I don’t think my review will be able to answer that question. Typical routine: Step 1) Dior maximizer plumping serum (adds volume and makes the mascara stay put) Step 2) Guerlain Maxi lash (separates/fans out lashes, makes them black from root to tip). For the second step I also am happy using Hourglass Nior mascara or Dior It lash mascara. I have natural curl to my lashes and they have decent natural length too. Therefore, if you are looking for mascara that will curl your lashes I don’t think my review will be able to answer that question.Typical routine tep 1) Dior maximizer plumping serum (adds volume and makes the mascara stay put)Step 2) Guerlain Maxi lash (separates/fans out lashes, makes them black from root to tip). For the second step I also am happy using Hourglass Nior mascara or Dior It lash mascara.     What I expect out of a mascara: It needs to separate my lashes and fan them out, it needs to add volume to each lash without major clumping, it needs to make them look black from root to the very tip, and it needs to stay put (no smudging, no flaking) for at least 12+ hours without being waterproof. I know these are high expectations but I love my lashes and I always buy full-size high end mascara. So when I am spending ~$28 a tube every 3-4 months it better be good!   Application: I am not used to such a large brush head, so I found I went a bit slower than normal. Other than that it was no different than other mascara’s I use. No special side of the brush to use, no special angle, no special swiping motion, etc.   Did it meet my expectations: · Separation/Fan out: Yes. I saw no major clumping even after two coats. See photos below. · Volume/black from root to tip: Yes. I felt like it definitely took two coats for me to get the volume and blackness from root to tip I desire, but I was very pleased with the result after two coats. See photos below. · Longevity: Mostly Yes. I did notice flaking after +8 hours of wear. Not major flaking but when I looked close in the mirror I could see the little black specs that had fallen off and landed on my face. I found using this mascara with the Dior maximizing serum extended the longevity but also made it clump more.   No mascara: Spoiler (Highlight to read)  One coat of mascara: Spoiler (Highlight to read) Two coats of mascara:   Final opinion: So far, I have used this mascara every day for over 2 weeks. I like this mascara and intend to use it until it is finished. I am finally getting used to the large brush head so I will buy this again.   Lastly, I must give credit where credit is due! I want to thank Sephora/Dior for gifting me this mascara. I was gifted this mascara but the opinions shared in this review and the time spent evaluating this mascara were all my own.
Do my eyes deceive me?  Are they finally gone from the sale section?  Emerald ring thing still there..... 
My prom is next weekend and I want to create the perfect look. I'l be wearing a black dress and I'm accessorizing with red; I have red shoes, read earrings, and I was planning on doing a red lip. I'm conflicted because I don't know what to do for my eyes. I have blue eyes and I ant to make them pop with a glamorous, possibly smokey eye. How do I know if I should I do a black smokey eye or a brown/bronze/gold smokey eye?
I was wondering if anyone here on BT get lash extensions? I'm thinking of getting them but the beauty salon i'm looking at seems pretty expensive, around $250 for the first set (mink) than touch ups every 6-8 weeks are $50-100. What is mink anyways? The cheaper one that's 75 lashes per eye for $170 the first time.   I've seen people with extensions and they look amazing! But, I'm a little worried that I can't wear liner anymore since makeup remover might weaken the adhesive. Also, the price is a little hard to swallow. Ladies, help me make a decision! Should I go get them done?
Stila's Stay All Day flakes and I find the brush a bit too flimsy for my liking.   Any good felt tip marker style eyeliners?
does anyone know a good eye primer that by the end of the night the eye primer does not crease. because urban decay is making my eye shadow crease 
Hey, beauties! I want to buy an eye shadow palette. I don't wear eye shadow everyday, only for special occasions. The only one I have is just a basic drugstore brand. I believe it's called The Nudes by Maybelline. I always hear great things about the Naked palettes by Urban Decay and the Chocolate Bar ones by Too Faced. What's your favorite eye shadow palette?

This is a question that's always intrigued me. I LOVE makeup, but I had a bad habit of buying too much eyeshadow I didn't need and tried to slim my collection down - I wanted just enough to create a variety of looks, but not enough to be overwhelming. So I settled on one eyeshadow palette and a handful of singles. But the process made me think; what couldn't I live without? It was interesting.   But if we were all stranded on a desert island and could only bring one palette what would you bring?   For me, it's the Too Faced Boudoir Eyes palette! <3 It's so perfect. Any of the shadows can be worn alone for that dainty, princess-like girly look I love, several are ideal highlighters, and you can make a smokey eye.    But! I know some people would rather discuss individual eyeshadows they can't live without, so throw those out too!
As some of you may know, a new Diorshow formula will be available soon; it will be sold to VIB and VIB Rouge before it is available to everyone.   http://www.sephora.com/diorshow-mascara-P396240?sk uId=1689744   I was lucky enough to be gifted a tube of this new mascara, courtesy of Dior partnering with Sephora.  I'm sure I was chosen for this particular gift due to my numerous posts declaring this product as my HG mascara.  I was asked to post on BT and write a review after trying it; so, I am here to share my thoughts with you all.   Spoiler (Highlight to read) Here is the new box.  It arrived rather smashed up but the product itself was perfectly fine.   Spoiler (Highlight to read)   The top picture shows a comparison between wearing Diorshow's new formula (over Diorshow primer) on the left and my natural eyelashes without any product on the right.  The bottom picture shows Diorshow primer and the Diorshow new formula mascara on both lashes.     My thoughts:  As a big fan of the prior formula, I was very interested to see what changes Dior made.  In my opinion, this new formula mascara seems to be a little creamier and shinier than the old formula. It was very easy to apply and it did not clump at all.  I didn't even need to run an eyelash comb through it, which is always a plus.  I found it to be still as dramatic as ever and the staying power also continues to be excellent. Again, Diorshow is a winner and I am happy to say it will remain my HG mascara.    
I don't wear eyeshadow frequently but whenever I do I find myself wishing for plum or purple eyeshadows. I've been told they really complement my almost-black brown eyes.  I have Naked 2 and Naked 3 but those colors lean more brown/rose gold.   I noticed in the LM palette that there are quite a few purple shadows but I also read that the top row is cool toned while the bottom is warm... I am without a doubt warm-toned. So, would it be worth getting the palette for the purples if they're cool-toned? Do you find that the plums on the top row are actually cool? I always associated the word "plum" with warm for some reason, but I guess not in this case?   If you have the palette and love/hate it, please do tell!    
I was REALLY surprised this is not offered at Sephora, this is the best product I have ever used for removing eye makeup.  I currently buy it through Birch Box.  Does anyone else use this as well?  
Can we talk about how amazing the new duo-chrome UD shadows are? I swatched them in store and almost fainted from the beauty. As much as I hate to spend that much per pan, I might have to just so I can own them all.
