I received an email from QVC the other day that said Kat Von D makeup will be launching on their network on September 21, 2015. It will be an hour show from 5:00 pm - 6:00 pm CST (3:00 pm PST, 4:00 pm MST, and 6:00 pm EST). For those of you who have never shopped with QVC before, they often offer exclusive products in each beauty line they offer. I buy Tarte products from both Sephora and QVC, and QVC: (a) offers exclusive Tarte products available nowhere else, including holiday kits and palettes (there is a QVC exclusive Tarte eyeshadow palette with brush available on QVC's website now) (b) often packages products to provide a better value (i.e. will include a brush with foundation and palettes, will sell a set of three lipsticks for the price of two, and will offer super sizes of popular products for the price of a regular size), and (c) launches beauty products and maintains exclusivity rights for a period of time (such as Tarte's Rainforest of the Sea Water foundation coming out this month). I know at this point it sounds like I work for QVC, but I promise I do not, I'm just excited about the potential of obtaining exclusive Kat Von D products, having her products packaged to offer a better value, and seeing Kat present her products and any tips or hints she might provide. I would be remiss if I did not mention the drawbacks of shopping at QVC - shipping is expensive ($3.00 for each product, not each order) and it seems slow. Sephora has me spoiled with free 2 day shipping, and that is why I will continue to split my beauty purchases between Sephora and QVC. :-)
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?
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'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
I decided to do swatches and dupes of the Melt Cosmetics Lovesick and Dark Matter stacks for those who are contemplating purchasing them. These are the closest dupes I could find in my collection. I hope this helps. (Dupe is on the left, Melt on the right except for Promiscuous which is reversed) Promiscuous- a violet blue duochrome. Blue comes out over a black base. Dupe: MUG Caitlin Rose. Caitlin Rose doesn't have the blue duochrome, is lighter and has a foiled finish. Fixated- a matte blue-gray Dupe: LORAC Gray eyeshadow (Mega Pro palette). A few shades lighter and not as blue. Amelie- a gold-peach duochrome. Dupe: ABH China Rose. China Rose is a few shades darker and the duochrome isn't as strong. Lovesick- a matte wine burgundy. Dupes: MUG Bitten and Marsala Matte from the COTY palette. These are a few shades lighter and are less pigmented. Blurr: a matte light peach Dupe: LORAC Camel (Mega Pro palette). A shade or two darker and leans more yellow. Unseen: a matte medium brown Dupe: ABH Caramel. Exactly the same as Unseen. Enigma- a matte rust brown Dupe: Hot Chocolate from the COTY palette. A few shades darker. Not as rusty. Dark Matter- a matte black. Leans a bit gray. Dupe: ABH Noir- Noir black. My favorite black eyeshadow.
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!
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!
A little birdie (a quite credible one) told me that Black Up Cosmetics will be coming to Sephora in September! I'm pretty excited to have another brand at Sephora. I tried the brand recently on vacation and I really enjoy the powder products. From what I'm told, Sephora will carry the entire line. Haven't heard yet if it's online too, but I know it will be in 18 stores at first. The line primarily has been marketed to Women of Color, however, there are so many products that I see are universal. Has anyone tried Black Up yet? Any favorites?
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 :-)
