Tom Ford Updates
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!

Splurge/Save for Wedding: Lipstick or mascara
Hello beauty community!!    So I'm getting married in June in Chicago (which can be hot or chilly-- you never know), and I'm 99% sure I'm doing my own makeup. I don't want to get lipstick and mascara that are both high end. What would you spend the extra bucks on: mascara (must be waterproof), or a lipstick that is long lasting? I rarely wear lipstick, but I've always thought that having a special lipstick for my wedding would create a sweet memory for when I wear it again, but I don't know...help!

Drugstore TSB
Hi everyone,   I've been cleaning out my stash and have a TON of drugstore products I'd like to pass along to others, so I was thinking of starting a drugstore TSB for anyone who's interested.    If you'd like to participate, you must have at least 500 hearts. Once we have a confirmed list of participants, I'll ask that everyone PM their shipping address on to the person before them.    Since I live in a tiny town with no nearby shelters to donate to, Missey1973 has agreed to take the box at the end of the round and donate it to her local shelter, where she has taken a previous TSB. (I want to add that Missey mentioned that there are guys at the shelter as well, so definitely feel free to include men's products if you have any!)   Pretty standard TSB rules: Spoiler (Highlight to read) Rules DO INCLUDE: -new and gently used beauty products -sample and full size items are all ok -mainly drugstore products, but high end products are welcome too -labels for anything that's used/swatched -sanitized products if they're used/swatched -pictures of your proposed trades, and await the approval of a couple other members before shipping it off -the same amount or more than what you take -men's products if you have any DO NOT INCLUDE: -anything gross or items that can't be adequately sanitized -premade samples -less than what you took -Heavily used items (unless someone requests it specifically) SHIPPING: -We'll use a USPS large flat rate box for priority shipping ($17.90) -Please post the tracking number once you ship the box -Please don't hold on to the box for more than three days. RulesDO INCLUDE:-new and gently used beauty products-sample and full size items are all ok-mainly drugstore products, but high end products are welcome too-labels for anything that's used/swatched-sanitized products if they're used/swatched-pictures of your proposed trades, and await the approval of a couple other members before shipping it off-the same amount or more than what you take-men's products if you have anyDO NOT INCLUDE:-anything gross or items that can't be adequately sanitized-premade samples-less than what you took-Heavily used items (unless someone requests it specifically)SHIPPING:-We'll use a USPS large flat rate box for priority shipping ($17.90)-Please post the tracking number once you ship the box-Please don't hold on to the box for more than three days. So, who's interested?   Edit: Depending on how quickly we get a list going, I'm aiming to send this box out some time in the 2nd week of February.   Starting: DolceLoure (sent: 2/8/16   9505513476776039099045)  1. Onceuponatime45 2. Buggirl 3. Sprytely 4. JazaChai 5. StephaniLynn 6. blondesluv2shop 7. kelloua 8. DolceLoure 9. Missey1973 (will do her trades and then donate the goodies to local shelter)

A setting powder for ladies who don't like powder?
Hello ladies I'm in search of a setting powder (who isn't?). I'd rather not use powder at all but the foundation I use does require it, unfortunately.   I love Diorskin Nude for touchups since it has the "barely there" look but I feel it's not the right powder to put on after fresh foundation. I have a sample of the MUFE HD Powder that I've been using, it seems to be a relatively good match but I can't quite figure out how to use it proper. Also not too crazy about the Laura Mercier power, I had high hopes for it. Am I using these wrong? My face is very sticky & moisturized after fresh foundation.   My skin type is very dry .... I appreciate all suggestions!   http://www.sephora.com/diorskin-nude-air-powder-P3 94000?skuId=1665330

Urban Decay Thread!
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?

milk makeup?
can someone explain this to me. i just don't get it. there was so much hype and i got the highlighter which was basically a glitter stick (and i haven't liked glitter like that since my 4th grade art projects) and the lip/cheek thing that was greasy. it's supposed to be high concept, low maintenance so why are there 85 products if it is about the no-makeup look and low maintenance. seems like they tried to manufacture a brand and make it cool and launch a bunch of random stuff...deodarent anyone?!! ha! but the quality is way off and the packaging looks very cheap in person (worse than on sephora.com) and doesn't even function properly. you twist stuff up and it won't go down. anyone share my thoughts?

Marc Jacobs Beauty | News & Discussion
It seems high time for a separate thread for the Marc Jacobs Beauty collection (I checked, but didn't find one!). This thread will be the place to post sneak peeks and information about new products and special collections and also to generally discuss our interest in and experience with MJ beauty products. If you are an existing fan or have questions about a particular product or want to explore the brand for the first time, feel free to join the discussion. To start off, I recently purchased the LE Style Eye Con No. 20 Holiday Palette during the VIB sale, but I have yet to use it or even swatch the colors on myself. It is currently still in "sacred relic" mode in my mind, but I'm also intimidated as it is my first ever large palette purchase. I'm not an eyeshadow expert by any means, in knowledge nor in application. I would like to begin this discussion by inviting those of you who have this palette to post eye looks that you have created with it. I need some ideas!     And of course feel free to post about anything else related to MJ beauty should you be so inclined! I'm curious to know everyone's experience with the brand.... Which products do you absolutely love and would recommend to anyone and everyone, and which products just didn't do it for you?

Makeup & Skincare Inventory 2016
Over the past year, I've acquired more makeup and skincare products than I think I ever have. I decided to create an inventory list to keep track of what I own and I will do an update once per quarter on my progress.   My goal is to decrease the amount of products I own in each category, by using up what I have (especially the blue categories in which I own a lot of).    My initial inventory (as of 1/3/2016): Spoiler (Highlight to read) Feel free to join me & share your initial inventory and quarterly updates in this thread.   Share initial inventory by: January 31, 2016 Q1 update: March 31, 2016 Q2 update: June 30, 2016 Q3 update: September 30, 2016 Q4 update: December 31, 2016

Burberry Beauty Updates
  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.   what items have you liked recently from Burberry? Anything you are waiting for or have your eye on?   edit: replacing fall 2015 pictures with spring 2016

Products to Use Up in 2016
One of the YouTubers that I watch posted a video the other day about the products she used up in 2015. At the beginning of this year, she had picked a bunch of products she wanted to use up and now she reported whether each one was a success or fail.   I thought this was a great idea and I have created my list for 2016. I tried to pick one thing for each category and two for skincare since I have so many skincare products.   Here are the products I want to use up in 2016: Spoiler (Highlight to read) 1. SKINCARE: Clarins HydraQuench Cream for Normal to Dry Skin  (refer to line) 2. HANDS: AHA Hand Creme with Evening Primrose  (refer to line) 3. MAKEUP REMOVER: Botanics Micellar Cleansing Solution (refer to line) 4. BODY: Philosophy Senorita Margarita 3-in-1  (refer to line) 5. SETTING SPRAY: Victoria's Secret Make It Last Prime & Set Makeup Spray  (refer to line) 6. EYES: Clinique Eyeshadow in Daybreak (small oval of pan is showing) 7.

Beauty Decluttering
Ok, so I've thought long and hard on posting these.  I am at the point where I do not want to have a large amount of beauty products. I want to be able to enjoy and use the makeup I have.  This is my 3rd declutter within 3 months.  This really put a lot into perspective and shows me how wasteful I had been with purchases.  There are still a few things I should let go of but I'm not ready yet.  So far I'm happier since 3 months ago with my beauty items.   Anyone else cleaning out and reorganizing their stash?   Spoiler (Highlight to read) I know this still looks like a nightmare, my nail polish was so out of control that it took over my crafting area. However, I now have 31 bottles of polish to give away and 18 bottles to throw out Spoiler (Highlight to read) Blushes and random stuff Spoiler (Highlight to read) Eyeshadows Spoiler (Highlight to read) Most of these will be given away Spoiler (Highlight to read) 9/14/15 UPDATE: More stuffs to get rid of, bye bye.

Chanel Updates
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 :-)
