So who else is waiting on holiday sets already?
Wondering what new palettes Kat Von D will have, as well as what's to come from Tarte and UD!!! Who else is with me and what are you excited for? Can we expect these the end of this month?

Benefit Tints
I love Benefit and its tints (for my cheeks, that is).  They're not all created equally though.  Yes, they are a beautiful collection of red, pink, orange and purple.  While you can dot, dab or draw a line of Benetint, Cha Cha Tint and Posie tint and take a few seconds to rub them in, you must rub Lolli in very fast to prevent streaks.  I suggest applying it one handed with the other hand up there right away to blend.  You can also apply the tint to your finger and quickly rub it into your face.  Forget brushes.  With Lolli, there is no time.   A customer asked my Benefit brow specialist about the tints today.  When she did not know the answer, I filled the customer in.  She told me I just sold her on the product and proceeded to buy it.  Then, my Brow Specialist started asking me how to work the tints today.  I thought if I can help a Benefit rep, others may have questions.  She had only tried Lolli and had no clue the other three were easier to work with.  Hopefully, other people who start with Lolli are not afraid to try the other three.   Anyway, if you have questions about the tints, post them here.  Someone will fill you in.  If anyone is interested, I can provide swatches as well.

Becca The One Perfecting Brush
Hello Ladies of BT!    I just bought myself a couple Becca products and when I was shopping around, I saw The One Perfecting Brush. I didn't buy it at the time. Now I have been flipping the internet and blogospheres for reviews because it seems like such an excellent concept. Especially for people who are traveling or for people who are in a hurry (busy mommy like me). Has any of you ladies used this brush? I would appreciate your reviews, good or bad! Thanks!

First time using primer with very oily skin
Hi I'm new here.  I'm looking to start using a primer but I've never used that before.  My skin is very oily and usually whithin 2-3 hours my foundation stops working.  My face will start getting oily again.  Or are there any other suggestions to help my makeup last longer and face less oily??

OILY skin, want GLOWY foundation!!!
I have oily skin, but I am fond of the dewy glowing look! Not the oily shining look! I want to know exactly how I can create this look? I know I need to do strong oil control at skin care and base, so that I can use a dewy/glowy foundation.  But I see on Korean girls, even before makeup their skin is SUPER glowing.  How can I get that??? Please don't say the answer is highlight because their whole face is glowing! not only highlight points!  And highlight is not necessarily glowing too! The main point is their face is glowy and dewy but not oily shine. I should look for a mattifying strong oil control primer and a glowing foundation.  Any suggestion on this??? I will find a photo, I wasn't able to attach a photo here

RT brushes for powder products?
I'm under the impression that natural hair brushes work better for powder products and synthetics for liquid.    I've been eyeing the RT blush brush? or the one that is shaped like a cone for bronzer application but I know that all RT brushes are made of synthetic hairs.   Is my general rule concept mistaken or is it the quality of the brush that matters more?

Diorskin Star Foundation
I am so excited to try this!    It's available on Dior's site now, any idea when we might see it on Sephora?   "Inspired by the professional illuminating techniques and expertise of its makeup artists, Dior invents Diorskin Star, its 1st brightening foundation: a weightless fluid capable of recreating the spectacular and perfecting light of Dior's studios.   - The complexion is instantly more luminous and visibly more even. A new generation of hollow silica beads captures and diffuses light in a correcting halo with no shine. At the same time, colour-filter pigments neutralize colour imbalances to recreate the perfect light. - The complexion is clarified with a purer, more dazzling and long-lasting light. Anti-"light-trap" skincare ingredients help reduce the appearance of dark areas, pigment spots and redness."

I love the YSL Touche Eclat foundation but I can't find the right color. I've tried Beige 10 (its to light) and Beige Dore 10 (slightly to dark that its noticeable even when well blended).

All-in-one foundation?
I'm looking to lighten up my makeup bag and save time. I've always hated having to put on a liquid, then a concealer, and then powder, and so on so I'm looking for an all-in-one foundation that will even me out and cover up some redness that I have. I'm guessing that's what medium or full coverage foundations are for? Could really use some help on this!

Do you wear makeup to the gym? If so, what do you do to your face afterwards?
So school is soon approaching and I am going to be starting my masters degree in Epidemiology (excited yet scared)!    Anyways, I am certain that I am going to be very busy and will only be able to go to the gym between class breaks or before class starts. Other than that, I will be researching, with clients, or TAing.   My question is, do you or should you go to the gym with makeup on? If you do, what do you do with your face afterwards? Obviously I do not want to reapply my makeup on a sweaty face and if I shower, I would have to start my whole skincare regime again followed by makeup (which takes quite a long time). In addition, I would be in a male locker room and could you imagine what those "gym jocks" would think if they saw me doing my routine ... oh please (I hate when people judge).   Any tips, advice or suggestion would be great to hear!   Definitely let me know, thank you so much in advance!   Michael, xo

Foundation Question
Hello! I have a question I am sure is asked a lot. I am having trouble finding a foundation, well kind of. I was matched in store for MUFE Mat Velvet+ in No. 20 Ivory. I do really like this foundation but since its summer I went back in to find something a bit lighter looking and a more natural finish. (I have Combo Skin that gets oily through the day on the forehead). I was matched with the tool they have now and was told I was 2Y04. Well now I am really lost, how do I know what color I am and how do I go about finding a shade for me with out having to go and try them all on and not get pushed into one I don't really like. When I go to find my color matches through the foundation I already have it comes up with 1R03 and a totally different set of colors. Now I have also gotten my hands on MUFE HD in 115 Ivory and it also looks good on me. So If you can help me out I would much appreciate it.

BECCA shimmering skin perfector in champagne gold
I was looking on the Ulta website and saw a new BECCA pressed powder shimmering skin perfector in champagne gold. I wondered if anyone has seen swatches of this. I already have Moonstone, Opal and Rose Gold so the question is do I need it?? LOL...of course. But I was really wondering how different it is from Moonstone. I'm not sure how to link a picture but you can find it on Ulta or the BECCA website. It says it's limited edition (ha ha, so was rose gold) and it has the same stamping on it as the holiday rose gold had on it.

A makeup routine suitable for acne prone skin?
I am debating on switching my makeup routine if there is makeup more suitable for my skin type.   Throughout the day I get an oily t-zone, and I have acne prone skin (majority of it on my chin and around my mouth area).    I prime with Cover FX mattifying primer (doesn't seem to do its justice for me), I use Kat Von D lock-it tattoo foundation, which I LOVE the coverage with that due to my acne and lots of hyper-pigmentation. I then use **bleep** full cover concealer to cover any imperfections, I just use a revlon pressed powder, rimmel bronzer and revlon blush. I then use Urban Decays de-slick setting spray.   Could anyone make an suggestions on products I need to swap out, or entirely new makeup routine that is more suitable for acne.   Thank you!
