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!

THE TARTE THREAD!!!
NEWS, UPCOMING COLLECTIONS, DISCUSSIONS AND SWATCHES!   I was surprised there wasn't a dedicated thread for the brand especially since they have really upped their game recently. So since pretty much every brand has a thread I thought to start one for Tarte!   They have been slaying with the recent launches and truly on a roll with more amazing products to come!

❤️Becca thread
I have seen lots of new threads pop up devoted to specific brands and thought I would get some other opinions and ideas about the best of becca.     I just in the last year have really fallen in love with this brand. We newest favs are backlight priming filter and blush in flowerchild. I feel like shimmering skin perfector is a must have for every makeup lover. I love using the backlight targeted colour corrector on my dark under eye circles.   I have though about trying foundation anyone have any suggestions?what are your favorites?

TOM FORD BEAUTY - Coming Soon To Sephora - Discussion & Product Reviews
In light of the upcoming launch of Tom Ford Beauty at Sephora, I was selected as one of the lucky recipients of a very generous gift from Sephora and Tom Ford Beauty. I would like to dedicate a thread to the luxury beauty brand and it's impending Soleil 2016 launch.     I’ve dabbled in a fair bit of Tom Ford makeup and I’m definitely a fan, but I’ve tried surprisingly little from their summer collections, so I’m very much looking forward to testing these out.  Thank you so much to both Sephora and Tom Ford Beauty for such a lovely gift!   Please feel free to share about any products you've tried and loved, cherished or can’t live without, or even the ones you’ve disliked, hated or given away.   This is an information sharing thread so all opinions are welcome!   Mustique (left) Cala di Volpe (right)   Swatches:   Comparisons: Spoiler (Highlight to read) TF Blushes (Lovelust, Ravish, Afternooner, Flush) TF Highlights (Top photo: Moodlight top, Afternooner, Moodlight bottom / Bottom photo: Softcore, Afternooner, Stroked) Bronzer swatches (Guerlain Terracotta Terre D'ete, Afternooner, UD Paranoid, CT Bronze & Glow Dark) TF lipsticks (Henry, Cala di Volpe, Gustavo, Guillermo) TF lipsticks (Spanish Pink, Mustique, Indian Rose, Casablanca) TF Blushes (Lovelust, Ravish, Afternooner, Flush)TF Highlights (Top photo: Moodlight top, Afternooner, Moodlight bottom / Bottom photo: Softcore, Afternooner, Stroked)Bronzer swatches (Guerlain Terracotta Terre D'ete, Afternooner, UD Paranoid, CT Bronze & Glow Dark)TF lipsticks (Henry, Cala di Volpe, Gustavo, Guillermo)TF lipsticks (Spanish Pink, Mustique, Indian Rose, Casablanca)

Wander Beauty Launch
  Lindsay Ellingson: Hi Sephora beauties!  I'm so excited to chat with all of you and share a little about Wander Beauty, a new internationally inspired beauty experience I Co-founded that launches on  Sephora.com (US & Canada) tomorrow!  I’ve been modeling for over a decade and been so fortunate to work with everyone from Valentino to Victoria’s Secret and the most talented beauty experts all over the world.  It was the best beauty school one could have. I've sat in the makeup chair for countless hours, and absorbed all of the best application tricks and beauty trends.  I've tried and tested everything and know what works. With so much traveling, I need products that can take me from day to night with ease.  You would be surprised how fast I get myself out the door with just a few of our easy to use multi-taskers.  Wander Beauty is made for women who are constantly on the go.   Divya Gugnani: I’ve been obsessed with makeup since I was a little girl and loved to use my mom’s lipsticks as crayons. She, of course, did not like that as much as I did. I’ll admit I buy more than I use but I just love to experiment. Nothing excites me more than spanning the globe on a new adventure whether it is scuba diving in Honduras or gorilla trekking in east Africa. I’ve been bitten by the travel bug and I love to explore the beauty secrets of other cultures, passed down from generations, or discover unique international ingredients and their potent powers.  My background is in finance and business but I’m truly living my dream as a Co-founder of Wander Beauty.   When Lindsay and I first met years ago, we shared a common need...to simplify our beauty routines. As a working mother of two young kids (21 months and almost 4) I’ve got five minutes to get myself together and out the door. Less is more and I wanted a few key things that could go double duty and delivery a multitude of looks as well as travel with me during my busy day.   LE: We’re on a mission to downsize your makeup bag yet we understand the need for luxurious, skincare-infused formulas that deliver real results.  My favorite part of being Creative Director is developing innovative products that work with your skin and skincare, not against it. Our formulas are cruelty free and free of parabens, mineral oil, phthalates and synthetic fragrance.   DG/LE: So, what’s is Wander Beauty? Multitasking Makeup Essentials Internationally Inspired Innovation Color to Be Carried Wander Beauty is for real women, who want fuss-free, fool-proof, multi-functional makeup that makes them feel confident everyday, wherever life takes them.   LE: We launched with one hero product, our On-the-Glow Blush and Illuminator. I like to call it summer in a stick. It’s the ultimate beauty enhancer with countless ways to wear it! I use the dual ended cream blush and highlighter to strobe and add a natural flush to my cheeks every morning. This and a little mascara and I'm ready for my day.         DG: My personal favorite is our Wanderout Dual Lipstick with a bright on one side (with the arrow on top) and a neutral on the other. Wanderberry and Barely There is my combo of choice. I’ll admit, sometimes I mix them both and create my own shade! The formula is infused with ingredients from eight different countries like Marula Oil (South Africa), Castor Seed Oil (Japan), Coco Seed Butter (Netherlands), Mango Seed Butter (India) and more. From my work tote to my dinner clutch it’s with me wherever I go.   DG/LE: So, we are starting this thread to share our story and how we created this beauty experience but most importantly to connect with all of you and open the dialogue for your feedback and questions. So, tell us: if you could create one beauty multi-tasker what would it be?

THE VISEART THREAD
Thought I'd start a thread just for Viseart since so many of us LOVE them.   I love to encourage a small brand as opposed to a brand where you pay for the name. The eye shadow quality can't be beat! ************************************************** ******* NEW PRODUCTS Theory palettes - Cashmere, Minx, Chroma (6 pan) Ribbons Boheme 02 (12 pan)   Theory palettes & Ribbons now available on Sephora US & CANADA Can also be found at Muse Beauty (new lower shipping rate for Canada!)   More releases coming up this year! Will post when I have more info   Price breakdown for those interested Spoiler (Highlight to read) Saw this on Facebook a while back and thought I'd add it here.   A 12 color Viseart Eyeshadow Palette is $80 USD (before pro discount). Each eyeshadow pan is 2 grams and valued at approx. $6 ($3.00 per gram).   MAC has reduced the price of their single eyeshadows refills from $10 USD to $6 USD each. So 12 colors at the new reduced price would be $72 USD (before pro discount). Add the $8 USD empty palette to store them and we're back to $80 USD.   EXCEPT: Each MAC eyeshadow pan is only 1.3 grams ($4.62 per gram). You're getting only 15.6 grams of product, as opposed to the 24 grams of eyeshadow in the Viseart palette. That's a loss of over 8 grams of product.   FINAL ANALYSIS: It would cost $119 USD for MAC to duplicate the Viseart palette (24 grams of MAC eyeshadow at $4.62 per gram and $8 for the palette).

Wear To Work Makeup
A conversation in another thread got me thinking... It may be fun to talk about different industries the BTers work in and the makeup looks they wear. With so many areas of work, jobs, industries, etc, everyone has different expectations of makeup/professionalism for their particular job. Even within different industries, there may be varying expectations. It could be interesting to compare! For example, if two people work in retail but in two different types of stores, say The Gap vs. Hot Topic, the person who works at Hot Topic may be able to get away with a bolder look.    I'll start:   I'm a high school health and PE teacher, and a volleyball and tennis coach. I typically wear very natural looking "no makeup" makeup, and use my lips as a subtle pop of color. I typically wear: -Skin colored eye shadow and tightlined liquid eyeliner w/ mascara -Light coverage foundation, subtle blush, a bit of highlighter, and maybe bronzer if I've been outside a lot and I've gotten a bit of color. -Brow gel, and a sheer or MLBB pop of color on my lips       Bonus! When you're not at work, what is your go-to makeup look? I'll do more of an eye, smokey shadow, winged liner, but still subtle, a little more contouring, and a bolder lip, like a liquid lipstick or something more opaque. I wonder how many BTers actually wear a more dramatic look at work than when they aren't at work!   Second bonus! You may connect with another BTer who works in your industry, and you can swap stories. As much as it (sometimes) sucks to talk about work at home, talking with someone who just *gets it* can be a great stress relief for work related issues.

Drugstore dupes for High end products
I want to start anew, I tried looking for recent threads and I couldn't find any.   Show us your finds.    I believe I found a Guerlain Maxi lash dupe in Almay brand. Here are the pictures and wand comparison. I also applied it to my lashes and my lashes look the same as when I appl y Guerlain (sample I had). My lashes look long and full after one application, as well as natural. Also, they are SOFT, just like with Guerlain. I'll post pictures of my eye in a bit.      Spoiler (Highlight to read)       even though the almay looks more full, it does the same thing guerlain did for me. I definitely say give this one a try unless you can't live without the rosy smell guerlain has        even though the almay looks more full, it does the same thing guerlain did for me.

what is the longest lasting full coverage foundation?
I currently use the estee lauder double wear foundation and I love it because it covers so good I dont even need a concealer but none of their shades match me anymore. So besides the double wear what would be something that also lasts long and covers just as good?

Besame Cosmetics...
If you're interested in old Hollywood glam I would highly suggest checking out this brand.  They have a small but beautiful collection of cosmetics including "Violet brightening powder" for your face and "Cake Mascara".    I have never seen anything like the mascara before. It comes in a dry cake (obviously) which you then mix with water to get the right consistency. The really cool thing about this mascara is that you can spritz it with disinfectant to get rid of bacteria, fungus, and mold. Amazing! And because you wet it every time you use it never dries out prematurely.    NOTE: Sorry this sounds a little bit like an ad, I swear they didn't pay me to say this, I'm just really excited about this brand.   EDIT: I'll review the mascara and violet powder on this post when I get them.

Does anyone have experience with Rituel de Fille?
I've just recently found out this brand was a thing, and I am really interested in them. But, while I am a sucker for witchy themed makeup (shocking right?) this brand is pretty steeply priced, so I'm afraid of shelling out for something that might end up being a dust catcher. I didn't find many of the reviews for them, though I tend to not really like reviews unless I'm at least passingly familiar with the reviewer anyway.   I signed up for their newsletter and they sent me a nice coupon ($10 off $50+ if memory serves) so I will probably end up going for it but I would love to hear what BT has to say about them!   (They sure know how to grab attention though don't they?)
