HelloCoffee
Can we please talk about the new MUFE shadows?!
Have you guys seen these?! There are tons of shades and finishes to choose from, and you can build your own palette! I can't wait to try these; I wonder if Sephora will carry all of the shades? There are so many and I'd really like to go in and test a good chunk of them.     http://www.sephora.com/artist-shadow-P387670?skuId =1622745

Will foundation primer interfere with the benefits of my foundation serum?
Hi beauties, I'm thinking of giving foundation primer a try. Currently I am using Perricone No Foundation Foundation Serum and I adore how it looks and feels - it just doesn't seem to stay on all day, thus bringing me to my two questions:  will a primer help the foundation stay on longer and will using a primer interfere with the anti aging and skin benefits of the foundation serum?     Oh and I was thinking of beginning my primer experience with Laura Mercier because I have a deluxe sample size. Thoughts?

Okay I KNOW this is months early BUT I want to start making my wish list early this year for all the stores that usually have good deals around the holidays. I know Sephora does the VIB 20% off... But that is all that's coming to my mind right now... Does anyone know or remember where all had good beauty deals last year that will/maybe have deals this year?

Has anyone else tried the mac prep and prime highlighter?
I bought it yesterday and not sure I like it on my skin..  I bought the color light boost and it's yellow but idk.. I'm thinking of getting my money back. I used it to brighten up my eyes but it looks a bit ashy. I normally use mac prolong wear concealer in nw25 to cover dark circles, and  then I use maybelline fit me concealer in sand to brighten it up. I feel like this is a better method. I wanted to try something different so I bought the mac brightener but I'm not too crazy about it.

Roxy Boxy TSB
Once I get the box back I'll pick out some items and donate the remaining items to 'The River' (a local organization that takes and redistributes new and used makeup/beauty items to women in need). I've given beauty products to this organization before and they're really good.   * Please make sure every item is in a plastic ziplock bag to prevent spills.   Donts’s ■ DON'T keep the box for more than two days. Keep it moving! If you are traveling or a special circumstance comes up, we can work to rearrange things. (ALSO YOU MUST INCLUDE A TRACKING NUMBER it makes it more fun anticipating your turn) ■ DON'T put unsanitary items of any sort into the TSB. We want to have fun and get gorgeous, not sickly ■ DON'T put any drugstore items into the TSB. ■ No reserve items in the box for others, and don’t ask to have any items reserved for you. This is unfair to others participating. ■ DON'T swatch items from the box. This is a hygienic precaution that we must take, as a lot of people will be handling these items. ■ DON'T take more than what you put in. Please trade at or above each item’s retail value.   Do’s ♥ Please contribute high-end beauty products only. No drugstore items. If you have questions or you are unsure of an item, ask! ♥ Unused, swatched or lightly used products are perfectly acceptable. Well-loved items are not (unless explicitly requested by the next person or there has been a posted picture and someone requested that item). Again, if you’re unsure, ask! ♥ Swatched/used items must be labeled as such. ♥ All opened items must be cleaned/sanitized prior to their addition to the box. ♥ Send your address to the person above you in a PM. ♥ Package things carefully! Try to leave the TSB in better condition than you found it  ♥ Please seal any items that could leak/spill/make a mess accordingly. ♥ Most importantly, share your experience! Please post a photo and a description of the box, what you took, and what you contributed.   Allowed: ☆High-end, clean makeup/skincare items (including makeup bags, brushes, etc. If you have questions, refer to other TSB threads or just ask!) ☆Fragrance (be sure to package bottles properly!) ☆Nail polish (again, be careful!)   Not allowed: ☆Pre-made samples ☆ NO used/swatched lip wands (the kind you dunk the wand in or things like stila lipglaze) ☆Heavily used items ☆ Drugstore items ☆Used items that haven’t been cleaned/sanitized ☆Questionable items (always ask if you have doubts!)   If you cannot take photos, Do Not Sign Up, please *******PUT BETTER OR EQUAL PRICED ITEMS IN FOR WHAT YOU TAKE OUT TO KEEP UP THE INTEGRITY OF THE BOX*********   Final Verdict on Mascara- A lot of the GWP mascaras are not sealed. It is ok to include these mascaras in the box ONLY IF THEY ARE UNUSED. Please be honest (it's a matter of health!). Also, please be aware that some of the mascaras may be dried out upon opening them. Only open them if you selected them as your item. Please be honest when it comes to this.   Also, please pick up a large priority box at the post office prior to receiving the box. This is so we can streamline things (get the box to everyone faster in case the box breaks or there's a spill).   -send your address to the person above you   -post a picture and text what you are taking and what you put in BEFORE you send the box on.   roxystar4 -------> 9405509699937585873456 1. bombshell30  -------> 91149011898666880867309 2. ghkim -------> 9405903699300192324806 3.

Drugstore Dupes For MAC
I was reading the newspaper last week when I saw the title How I Stopped the MAC Attack in the Everyday Cheapskate column by Mary Hunt. Ms. Hunt decided to part company with MAC and find drugstore substitutions that were not only cheaper but also of an equal or better quality than her MAC products.   I will put her list down below and her comments (MH) about the product.   Hope this is helpful!   MAC Studio Fix Fluid Foundation (C3) = Revlon Colorstay Whipped Creme Makeup 250 (Medium Beige) MH: Full coverage, lightweight and just plain amazing   MAC Studio Fix Pressed Powder (C3) = Physicians Formula Magic Mosaic Pressed Powder MH: Light, glides on and doesn't get clumpy   MAC Pre + Prime Skin Primer = Monistat Chafing Gel MH: Yes it sounds crazy but it's outstanding and outperforms any primer she knows.   MAC Eyeliner Pencil = Prestige Waterproof Eyeliner MH: Smooth, glides on better and waterproof   MAC Studio Sculpt Lash Mascara = L'Oreal Voluminous Mascara   MAC Lipstick (Sequin) = L'Oreal Paris Colour Riche matte finish in 560 Saucy Mauve

Favorite products? I need suggestions!
I just hit VIB last week, and I got my 10% off card in store the other day. So, I figured to avoid "wasting" it, I'm gonna give myself an early birthday present and spend about 200-250 and use my coupon. I ran through a lot of my top priorities on my Loves list when the 2x/3x/4x points thing was going on, so now I don't know what I need!    I was thinking about maybe splurging on POREfessional, since I currently use something similar from L'Oreal, but after the first few uses the product started coming out with puddles of oil underneath, and I have really oily skin as-is, and I noticed POREfessional was oil free, but otherwise practically the same... Or any other good oil controlling primers? I just love how smooth the pore products make my skin, even though I don't think I have any major pore issues.    I also was trying to find an opaque, creamy orange colored lipstick. I love the Kat Von D A-Go-Go color, but I'm sometimes really shy about using super-bright lipsticks, and I don't want it to not get any use if I buy it. So I was wondering if maybe there was something a bit more muted, but still a pretty orange I could check out?   Another lipstick color I was looking for was a good red. I have fair to light skin with soft pink undertones (Once I get all my foundation on, at least). I was hoping to find a slightly dark shade of red, maybe a glossy one, since most of my lip purchases lately have been matte stuff.    I'd like a good waterline eyeliner recommendation too. I've never had much luck with keeping anything on the waterline.   I've been looking at the Too Faced Teddy Bear Hair brushes. They're really cute and seem to be great quality, but I'm scared to make the jump from my ELF brushes. Should I?    I've been looking for a good lengthening mascara too, and I was considering Dior It-Lash and KVD Immortal.   Finally, a pallet. The only big ones I own are Moonshadow In the Tropics and Chocolate Bar. The Naked I has my eye more than the other two, but I feel like I also have a ton of great neutral shades already in Chocolate Bar. Maybe if there's any pallets with some well-pigmented pastel colors? Baby blue, light pink shades, mint green, soft greys...   I'm open to any other stuff too. If you love it enough to rave about it, I'm sure it's worth checking out!     I'm also interested in skin care, especially oil control. I just have no idea where to even begin.   Thanks!

8% CASHBACK FROM SEPHORA FOR AUGUST 2014
I recently found a great coupon for 8% off SEPHORA through Ebates which you can use an unlimited amount of times for AUGUST 2014.  From my research, I learned that SEPHORA hired Ebates to stimulate sales during the recession by offering this coupon.  The way this works is that SEPHORA pays Ebates a commission every time you use them to buy something.  In return, SEPHORA pays you part of that commission (which is how you get the 8% off).  This stimulates business and everyone makes out!!!

Josie Maran Cleansing Oil doesn't remove makeup
I recently bought a set that includes a Josie Maran argan oil, cleansing oil, and argan oil moisturizer. The argan oil and moisturizer exceeded my expectations and I am really loving those two products, but I have not been able to get the cleansing oil to work. I used to use a cleanser from Neutrogena because it easily removed all of my makeup; I just used my ring fingers to very gently graze over my skin with this product and it would easily remove everything. But it really irritated my skin. With the Josie Maran one I have to really tug and stretch my skin to make it remove my makeup, and even when I do this it still only removes about 40% of my face makeup (and all I wear is face powder, bronzer, and blush), but it really agrees with my skin. Does anyone have any tips on how to make this remover a bit more effective? I really love how it agrees with my skin so well so I don't want to waste it.

LOTD (Lips of the Day)
Hi dolls, I'm obsessed with the what are you wearing thread on BT , but I find it hard to post a full faced selfie all the time! I noticed a lot of people are lip product junkies like myself on here and thought it would be a good thread to start. I also think it might make people more comfortable with posting a picture of their lips instead of their whole face (I know I don't want to see mines up close and personal all the time). I think a brows of the day , eyes of the day , etc. would be great too for people who aren't as comfortable posting a selfie. You can always post a selfie in this thread though (: Here's whats one my lips today!  1. Bite Beauty Rhubarb lip pencil 2. TF Perfect Lips Lip Liner in perfect spice

NARS Sheer Glow Foundation ?
I have several foundations but I really haven't found one that really clicks with me, except for the new Laura Mercier flawless foundation, I still haven't finished my sample but when I do I'm going to buy the actual size. Thing is, that one has a matte finish on me, which I like but I want something glowy. I was thinking of buying YSL Touche Eclat but I dont know if that one is a good fit for me since I do get oilly around the nose and it's more noticeable with the Texas heat.    To get to the point of this title, would you recommend nars sheer glow? It looks like it'd have a satin finish but it still gives you the type of radiance that I'm trying to find... thoughts, suggestions, anything is welcome, thanks!    Oh, just to mention what foundations i have: Big Easy Tarte 12 hr  clay foundation LM flawless sample elf flawless foundation MUFE velvet mat Illamasqua skin base   I don't like powder foundations, I had bought a TF powder foundation.. just not my thing. :\

How do you store your makeup brushes?
I keep all my makeup in a drawer in my dresser, but lately I have been running out of room for my makeup brushes due to my expanding makeup collection. I keep my makeup brushes in those mini makeup bags that I get from gift with purchases, so it is beginning to take up a lot of room since I have four bags in that drawer filled with makeup brushes. I know a lot of people like to store their brushes in cups filled with beads, but I don't like to have my makeup brushes out in the open. Does anyone have any tips on how to store makeup brushes without having to have them out in the open? I thought keeping them in bags was a good idea, but it is taking up way to much space so I think it's time I reorganized.

Sonia Kashuk 15 Year Anniversary Brush Set
  I don't know if any of you ladies know about this but Sonia Kashuk just came out with a LE 15 piece brush set in celebration of their 15th anniversary. I just picked up the last one in my town today during my lunch break. I personally think this is a steal. It is $40 at Target.   If you can find it, I suggest to get it right there and then because this set is sold out almost everywhere and each Target in the US and Canada each get 2 sets. Go on to Target's website and use the "find in a Target store" and click on "pick up in store" if it shows up to reserve it. Sonia Kashuk is trying to keep it in stock but it keeps selling out. This set will be available until October according to their customer service line.     If anyone wants to know how they perform, let me know and I will do a small review here on BT.

Sephora University "test run"--SO COOL!!
Tonight I got to go to my local Sephora after hours (sorry but the fact the doors were locked made it even cooler haha) for their first "test run" of a Sephora University class! Honestly, if they hadn't told us it was only a test run I never woulda known, 'cos it went off without a hitch! Caylee demo'd a daytime eye on Erica, then we turned to the our mirrors/products/tools that they provided and did it on ourselves, with the help of a cast member acting as a coach. Then we repeated that with the smokey eye. The cast member could ONLY coach us, not touch the brushes or anything. We learned so much this way!   My coach was Ashleigh (not pictured, I'm bummed I didn't get someone to take a pic of us, DERP!) At first I was really sorta intimidated and self conscious but it faded quickly because it was just a really safe sort of environment and I quickly realized everyone was focused on their own stuff not pointing & laughing at me. The top 3 things I learned were:  #1, I am too timid!! I can load my brushes and not worry so much. #2: I either blend too little or way too much, gotta find the sweet spot! #3: Eye cream can (and oughtta) be used BEFORE makeup, not just at bedtime!   Here's my smokey eye.    I prolly coulda gone a bit more dramatic, but I was just happy I managed to not make it come out like that yogurt ad lady.    "It's called a smokey eye!"   All in all it was AWESOME and they told us all about upcoming classes on foundation, skincare, blush & lip, etc. I wanted to just sleep there so I won't miss any!
