Laure Mercier Artist Palette - Typo Fail
So normally getting a palette with a misspelled label isn't a huge deal. I mean, it does tweak my Virgo need for order, and it does irk when it's from a high-end brand.   This misprint of "Deep Night", though, skates a little too close to the racial slur line for comfort. Obviously it's not intentional, but I wonder how many of these slipped through quality control.     I'm debating whether to exchange it, or just try adding the letters in myself with liquid paper or something.

Whoa! UD will sell a Naked Vault set for 2014?!
I first learned about this from Wayne Goss' FB page so I had to search for it. He said it will be available in Selfridges UK (GBP 180) on Nov 1. Does anyone have more info for US? So far I only found this pic from the Fashion North blog:

I know the Best Bite Remix set is available now.  But I was hoping they would put out a larger set - like they did last year.  I bought this set last year and love it.  Anyone know if they are doing something similar this year?

Suddenly white
I need to redo all my makeup as I took the plunge recently and went white in one day. I love it but all the brown shadows make me look like I've been crying for a month. I have fair skin,rosy complexion and brown eyes. Help!

Super awesome samples!
I feel like I needed to post a picture because I just opened my box (finally caved and bought the Tarte Amazonian shadow pallet) and I have never been happier with my samples! I got lucky and got the Dior Baume and the REN renewal mask! I felt like I got two extra deluxe samples without using a code for them…you just made my day, Sephora!   The Dior sample is packaged so cute, the paper is has quilted texture with a little magnetic closure, like a super nice blotting paper case. I think I might pop some business cards in this one and reuse it!   *and apparently all posts automatically go into the Acne category now, even if we change it? Weird.*

Makeup nostalgia
Recently I was purging my collection when I came across these two items. They're the ones that have made it through all of my purges no matter how ruthless. Why? Because they have sentimental value.   The Lancôme Color Design Artist Palette (2007-2008) was the first "high end" palette I ever bought and playing with it is really what got me into high end makeup. I also had a ridiculous amount of fun while wearing this palette and discovered both the purple and the navy smokey eye as my signature night time "go-to" look.   The L'Oréal Laetitia Casta "look" combo (2007) is what really got me into thinking about "looks" and how everything goes together.   What sentimental makeup items are you guys hanging on to?

Torn between Naked1 and Naked2
I have been searching for a good neutral palette for quite some time now and I have been trying to talk myself out of getting one of these palettes, but I have decided to take the plunge and get one of them. However, I am torn between the two of them. I personally think that cooler toned shadows fit my skin tone better (I sort of have yellowish undertones) so after some suggestions I have been leaning towards the naked 2. But there are some colors I really cannot stand in the palette (tease, pistol, foxy), and I know those shadows would go to waste. In the naked1 palette the only color I cannot stand is gunmetal (and maybe toasted would end up being a dislike), but because the colors are so warm I'm afraid I would get it and realize that none of the shadows are good for me, which would lead me to not reaching for it. Lastly, I was looking at swatches of the naked2 palette and this photo really caught my eye.  The colors look sooo pigmented and nice, but in some other photos I have seen the colors look completely different and not as nice. Does this photo accurately show the true colors of the naked2 palette?   Anyway, I'm basically town between the two and I would love if anyone has some good feedback on this! Thanks!

Deluxe and Foil Samples Traveling Box!
I posted a previous post about starting a traveling box with samples and deluxe samples and a few ladies were interested in doing one!  This is the 1st traveling box I am apart of and of course the 1st that I am starting.   So, we need to decide if we are going to do a medium or small flat rate box.     RULES  No used items.  No open items  DO NOT take more than you put in.  Let's keep this fun and fair  DO NOT take multiples of the same sample  PLEASE try not to keep the box more than 3 days  Make sure to send your address to the person listed above you  Once you send the box off, post the tracking number in this thread  ALL unused items allowed (well maybe not nail polishes if it will make the shipping costs go up)  Post a pic of what you take out, what you put in and what is left in the box before you send it off   We are going to have fun and try to keep this going as long as we can!   If you are interested in being in the box, I have a few spots left so post a pic of what samples you have in this thread to be added.   To start off, we are only going to have 10 people! 1. CuriousCannibal 2. MegEm 3.MLLECC 4. tessie84 5. Kittichick 6. NicoleFrat 7. NightKnight 8. Sweetxteeth 9. Nishcakes  10. Kariyava

Terrible attitudes towards young girls wearing makeup!
Today for whatever reason I decided to look up articles on how parents deal with their younger kids wanting to try makeup. While most of the article were fine, trying to address possible worries of parents, the comments I read were awful! Women who were apparently mothers(ones I'm glad mine was never like) were calling 11 year old girls "future hook*rs" because they were wearing makeup. Now I know there are going to be a lot of different opinions on when it's ok for girls to wear makeup, but calling a 13 year old a sl*t just because she started wearing makeup and you don't like her style is unacceptable.    Maybe makeup can have a negative impact on a girl's self esteem if she starts wearing it early, but I have a hard time taking the people who say this seriously when they then turn around and insult young girls and say they'll be worthless for the rest of their lives just because they're wearing heavy eye shadow in middleschool. Those people should be far more concerned with the effects of their nasty words than with a lip gloss purchase.   Sorry for the rant, I just wanted to get out my anger in a place with people that realize makeup isn't the devil.

Kat Von d: launching a new beauty website on 10/30/14
I follow Kat Von D on Facebook and yesterday, Monday, 10/20/14, she posted that she was launching a new beauty website in 10 days/on 10/30/14.🙀   See her post on FB for details on what the intent of the site is. I didn't want to post a screen capture of her post for two reasons 1) I am not sure if I'd be infringing on some protected material and 2) there was one bad word at the bottom of her post and I'd have to figure out how to edit that out since BT has rules on language. 😜   I am pretty excited - I love her products and I love her tutorial videos. I am anxiously awaiting the launch! I did visit the site to see what is currently posted and I was able to sign up to receive email communications. The site already looks pretty hot!🔥

So what do you all do with the cute little velvet pouches your makeup comes in?
I just got a pretty big Chanel haul and I'm organizing some of my goodies. I'm wondering what anyone does with those black velvet pouches that you get with Dior, Chanel, etc. Do you keep your products in them? Toss them? Use them for anything? I don't really want to keep my products covered in the vanity. I would if I took it on the go, but right now everything is staying at home. So I put the pouches lining one of my makeup drawers and put the product cases on top.

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

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.

Where have you been all my life, CIR??
I have been, as I'm sure many of you also have, very concerned about cosmetic ingredients and the potential dangers of many chemicals. There are lots of scary articles out there about loads of common ingredients, and I find it difficult to separate facts from fear mongering. I was just directed to a great website that actually provides the published scientific reviews of cosmetic ingredients, rather than just kind of saying "Trust us, we're scientists".   I can't post the link here, but you can google The Cosmetic Ingredient Review (cir-safety)   There's plenty of reading to go through, but it's pretty well organized and approachable for someone like me with no scientific training. I just wanted to share this resource in case there are some of you who have been looking for info like this!

Smashbox mini full exposure vs. Too Faced natural eye
I have been on the hunt for a good neutral palette for a long time and the two of these palettes have sparked my interests. However, the mini full exposure palette seems to have really mixed reviews. Half of them seem to love it while the other half says that it isn't pigmented and it fades fast. I like the colors better in the full exposure palette than the natural eye palette, but based off of reviews it sounds like I would be better off getting the too faced palette. Does anyone have any input on which palette performs better? I don't want to end up getting a palette that lacks quality.

Makeup in Storag
I've moved back into my house and there was of course stuff that was in storage for three years. Among my stuff was of course makeup. Well, in particular there was a lip balm (it's called a fat balm from Emily the Strange that I don't think they make anymore sadly), that I got a few years before it was in storage. It was in a makeup bag that was then of course put in a cardboard box and then put in storage.  So on to my point: I'd really like to use it again (upfront, I haven't put it on again as I would like everyone's opinion on here as I totally trust you guys), but I don't know if it's still ok for me to put on. I smelled it, and it didn't have a funky smell nor did it look like it had mold growing on it or anything like that, and I don't think there's a time limit on when to use it. Part of me is telling me to throw it away, but the other part of me doesn't want to and to use it. I'm think I know what you guys will say, but I need to hear it anyway xD. Is this lip balm still safe to use? Do I have to just disinfect it, and if so how?
