I've been hijacking threads lately with my various color challenges. It's time for it's own place! The rules: Each week (Sunday- Saturday) there will be a new color to incorporate into your makeup looks. It can be one item of that color or a whole face. Try to incorporate it 4-5 times during the week, and post your pic, or discuss your colors here with everyone! If you can only do a day or two, that's fine too! This should be fun! For folks on a No Buy, it's a great way to Shop your collection. I hope you'll join me! Week 7 Aug 30- sept 5: PLUM
Hey Beauties- We have ALOT of threads around here for Tom Ford products. I figured I'd start one thread where we can update each other on items as they come out or we see them available. For all my UK'ers, or people willing to pay for shipping from the UK, Harrods has Softcore and Nude Dip from the Fall collection available right now. Happy Shopping!
I already have the Filmstar bronze & glow palette but looking into some of her other products. Does anyone have any experiences they would like to share esp with her Light Wonder Foundation, her blush and the Airbrush Flawless Finish Powder? I'm interested in getting these three things but still on the fence about taking the plunge! Please let me know, many BTers opinions have helped me out on products before Thanks in advance!
I recently made an appointment to get my make up done and I was just wondering if the people that do your make up are certified? And i mean really certified like they are at Mac, i know it is tough to get a job there. I see a lot of mixed answers and just want to be sure. I love the variety at Sephora but do not know much about the ppl that actually work there. I am getting my make up done for my 21st birthday and don't want to be disappointed. THANK YOU!
So I just picked up some of the UD.com exclusive Revolution shades, and I was looking around for a place to post swatches and realized (thanks guzelkiz!) that Urban Decay was not yet represented among the various brand threads. A travesty! So here it is. The shades I picked up are Protest and Matte Carnal. I was afraid they would be dupes of things, because I apparently tend to buy the same-ish shades of nude/muted colors over and over. The good news, they're not! Both are close to things I have, but they're not exact dupes, at least in natural light. Here's Protest, between NARS Audacious Anita on the left, and Raquel on the right, with Jane underneath. It's close, but it's still warmer than Anita and darker than Raquel, so score! Here's Carnal, between Jeffree Star Celebrity Skin on the left and NARS Audacious Jane on the right. Again, close, but warmer than CS and darker than Jane. Anybody grab the other UD.com exclusives yet?
SO! My inner goth child gets to come out and play because Manson is coming to town Halloween weekend. And of course I am going because this is a can't miss even for most of the folks around here of a certian age lol I am already thinking about looks because this will be one of those times that I don't realy think that a few swipes of taupe eye shadow and MAC Rebel will cut it. So i turn to my lovelies on here to get some ideas
A lot of the other big beauty brands have their own threads now, so I thought, why not NARS? Let's share news about new collections, feedback on products, etc here. Currently, they are rolling out the Fall 2015 Collection: VIP Red Lipstick & Chelsea Girls and Baby Doll Lipgloss Spoiler (Highlight to read) Spoiler (Highlight to read) Tribulation blush Spoiler (Highlight to read) Telesto & Pasiphae Dual Intensity Shadows Spoiler (Highlight to read) Spoiler (Highlight to read) 8 colors of Shadow Sticks Spoiler (Highlight to read) And not part of the Fall collection, but a new 413BLKR blush duo and a new mascara Holiday 2015 sneak Have you picked up anything from the collection so far? Do tell!
Just looking at the new shades and they look lovely. Do I "need" any of them? If so, which? I actually don't mind the stiffer formula...it wears well on me (my lips aren't dry). Thoughts...suggestions...thanks!
I was wondering why, when I sort products by "new" on the website, some new products come up, but also some products that have been around for a long time come up, but say "new". For example, when I sort foundations by what is new, the Lancôme Teint Idole 24 Hr comes up with "new" under it, although I know it has been around a long time. When I click on it, it has the same description and reviews from a long time ago. Does this just mean that the formula has changed? If so, I think it would be nice if it was put into an entirely new category so that the old reviews and answers to questions don't come up when I am trying to decide on the new formulation. Thanks.
Hi ladies! I'm interested in trying the Marc Jacobs Re(marc)able Foundation, but I'm having trouble choosing a shade. My color IQ from last month is 2Y04 and that matched to Bisque Light 22 - fair with pink undertones.That makes no sense to me, as I definitely have a yellow undertone. I'm a MAC NC20-25, and I'm currently wearing MUFE Ultra HD in Y313. The MUFE is a shade too dark, as my summer tan is starting to fade. Does anyone have any swatches they would be wiling to share with me? I'm torn between Bisque Neutral 27 - fair with yellow undertones and Bisque Medium 26 - fair with neutral undertones. Any advice, comparisons or swatches is appreciated, as there's no way I can make the trip to my local Sephora this week.
I searched to see if there was a thread on this, couldn't find one! So freakin' over the moon about this! I have refused to buy the lip tars because of the tube and needing a brush to apply...ain't no makeup addict got time for all of that, not this one anyway. Now it comes like regular lippies. YAY Between these and the new milani lippies I'm set for the year! Oh and the bite lipsticks too. LOL

I started looking into the brand and wanted people's thoughts about the products. I've heard a lot about their cc cream with spf 50. They don't have many colors but it's suppose to blend to your perfect skin tone. I like that the make up line also focuses on anti-aging also. The vitality lip flush 4 in 1 looks interesting too.
Hi ladies and gents, I'm definitely guilty of dwelling on what went wrong rather than focusing on the positives throughout the day. I wanted to create this thread so that hopefully the positivity can spread! I'd love to hear the positive experiences you've had. Beauty related is great , but feel free to post non-beauty related positive things too! Ranting is definitely a healthy coping skill but in moderation. A beauty related positive thing that happened to me today was that my friend gave me two new MUFE shadows for no special occasion, she just thought they would look perfect on me. A non-beauty positive thing that happened to me today was while I was in line twenty dollars dropped out of my purse (I didn't notice) and then a random stranger tapped me and gave it back to me. I'm usually very cynical but he could've just taken it and suffer no consequences, so experiences like this helps restore my faith in humanity. What went right for you today?? (:
This is more about helping me understand what the girl at Sephora wrote on my foundation sample. So I've been looking for a good foundation for some time now and since I don't know much about this I decided to visit my local Sephora. I found the foundation I liked but I'm just having a really hard time finding it since what the girl helping me wrote down doesn't seem to match any of the foundations online. Would someone please help me find this foundations by MUFE or tell me if she just wrote random numbers down? The foundation is MUFE #4365
Hi I recently started using Nars sheer glow foundation and I am in the shade punjab and I really was wanting to try Nars concealer stick but unfortunately i don't know what shade i would be so i was wondering if you would mind helping me. Thank You!!!
Wasnt there a way to choose UPS for shipping? Or am I confusing it for USPS? I won't go into my issues with Ontrac, everyone's experience is different, some will understand some won't, I'm just looking for a solution to a problem (besides walking into a store to buy then shipping it myself).
I've been contemplating making an order for some Tarte items, but I haven't used much of the brand aside from the Maracuja Oil, the Lipsurgences, a brush I bought recently and of course, their mascara. I want to try some new products. I have my eye on: The Tartelette palette, Rainforest After Dark palette, Tarteist Clay Paint liner Amazonian clay full coverage airbrush foundation (powder) Timeless smoothing primer Amazonian clay 12-hour full coverage foundation Amazonian clay BB tinted moisturizer Smooth operator™ Amazonian clay tinted pressed finishing powder Phew, that was a lot lol . Does anyone have opinions on these items, or have suggestions for something else to try? Thank you so much in advance!
Hi BTers, do we have a thread for this? I'm on the Tom Ford Updates thread and I thought some of us might also want to share on Chanel. Eagerly awaiting the Chanel Mediterranee Summer 2015 and of course what's new for Les Beiges this summer. Share some pics, news, what are your 'must haves' for Chanel releases coming up? I'm really interested in this nail color and seriously debating about the bronzer. I'm trying to decide what road to go down for bronzer, the new Estee Lauder illuminating gelee, or the new Guerlain Terracotta powders, or this beauty... As far as the date, I've been talking to my Chanel SA and the collection seems to be coming out later than they thought. I think I saw somewhere it would be May. Share some Chanel here The cheek stick…and the neutral nails :-)
In the vein of the recent Tom Ford Updates and Chanel Updates threads, I thought I would start one for Burberry! I think they have had a ton of great releases recently (new eye shadow formula, kisses lippies). Burberry is one of the most consistently good designer lines in my opinion. Some great shots of the new collection are on the Fall 2015 Collections thread and I was surprised to see that the new Lip & Cheek Bloom is actually already available at Nordstrom! this fall collection posted on ModelRecommends looks pretty amazing too. that palette! what items have you liked recently from Burberry? Anything you are waiting for or have your eye on?
Hi, So I recently got a bunch of natural hair brushes to replace most in my Sigma set that weren't picking up my powder makeup that well. That being said, what's the best way to clean them? I've read people like using Dr. Bronners, but are the scented ones okay? I've also heard of people using baby shampoo. Also, what do people do in between washes to spot clean them? For my Sigma set, since they are all synthetic, I just used an rubbing alcohol/dish soap mix I made and spritz it on a tissue and wipe the brushes every time I use them to spot clean. I've also heard you need to condition natural hair brushes. How often would I need to do that and with what? Thanks in advance for the help!
Have you ever had a really high expectation over a beauty product, and in your mind this product will change everything, but when you put it on your face, you hear the car breaks sound? This is how I feel about the Kat Von D eyeliner in Trooper. I've had my perfect HG eyeliner for years, I hardly ever use anything else, and when I do, it doesn't ever compare to my one and only Stila. Recently, I have been lusting over KVD's liner in Trooper. I read raving reviews, heard many people speak highly about this product, it was completely hyped up in my mind. Yet, I had hesitated to purchase, feeling like I would be betraying my one true love. Kat Von D then released the limited edition liner and I was sold. I needed to finally try this liner. I purchased it, without guilt, in my mind I apologized to new Stila liner (I had just opened a new liner and threw my old one away) and said "I'm probably never using you again". I should explain why I'm not 100% faithful to my Stila liner. I hate the felt tip, after a couple of uses it starts to wear down (have remove felt hairs from the tip), and makes it harder to be draw a precise line. But after you remove the hairs, at her prime she is a dream, glides beautifully, easy to draw, and it's waterproof! I wished for a replacement that did not have a felt tip, and for a matte finish. Once I received my KVD liner, I couldn't wait to apply it, to draw my perfect winged line. I always start on the inner part of my eye and work my way to the outer, draw wing and connect. I have no complaints on the actual pen or the brush tip, it's actually my favorite, but the color is just not black enough. I feel like I have to redraw my line a couple of times for it to be strong, never had this problem with Stila. Honestly, that wasn't a deal breaker. I can reapply and deal with wastefulness. We get back from dinner and my husband puts on a romantic comedy movie from Netflix, I knew waterworks were coming. I always cry. Of course I cried, cleaned myself as carefully as one can clean. After the movie is finished, I go to the bathroom and look at my face. I have black running down my cheeks (wearing my waterproof HG mascara), the inner part of my liner is completely gone, wings gone, I have NEVER had this happen with my Stila. With my Stila liner I can watch a romantic comedy and cry, wipe, and my wings are always there. I am officially done with my affair, 100% devoted to Stila until a better version comes along. So now to my question, have any of you ever had a really high expectation for a beauty product and were highly disappointed? Let me know.
