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!
Ok, this needs to be done. Starting this thread has been mentioned before, but I'm taking the leap. Below, I'll start a list of commonly mispronounced beauty brands, so please comment if you want to correct me or add another brand. This is for all you perfectionists out there!

We're all pretty much brand snobs here, be it Neutrogena or Tom Ford. Also, the French people are annoying. Most of these brands are French!
I recently finished all of the eyeshadows in the UD Naked 1 palette and I am looking for a replacement palette of neutral shades that are both matte and shimmery. So far, I am considering Too Faced Chocolate Bar Lorac Pro (first one) Urban decay Naked 2 MUFE custom trio ( mainly for M846 😻) What are your experiences with these palettes? i don't trust youtube or blogs for reviews because Im not sure if the posts are sponsored or not. Feel free to add your personal recommendations 😃 ( No Viseart pls. They are out of my budget.) Thank you and apologies for the novel I just wrote lol.
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!
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.

So, I have a few beautiful highlighters (ColourPop Avalon and Most Necessary, as well as Nars South Beach) that are a bit too shimmery, for personal preference, as highlighters, but since they're so pretty, I've been wanting to use them as eyeshadows. However, they seem to crease like crazy regardless of what I've tried so far -- Too Faced eyeshadow primer, matte eyeshadow, setting powder, and a combo of all three with the primer first, a matte eyeshadow all over, and then setting powder on top of the shimmery highlight/eyeshadow. It may not be made to be as these are seem like more emollient highlighters. However, before I give up and pitch them, I figured I'd should check here first to see if anyone has suggestions.

Normally, I wear a pretty full coverage foundation day to day at work. But for my days off, I want something lighter that doesn't look like I'm wearing anything, just acts like a nice base for my skin and evens things out slightly. I would like something long wearing, even slightly matte because I noticed some oiliness and slipping throughout the day. I do have good skin, so I just want something to lay down before I put on concealer to cover my under eyes, fill in my brows, add some mascara and then I'm good to go! My skin tone is also very light, I use the lightest color in the Naked Skin foundation (0.5 I think) or Siberia in Nars Sheer Glow. Thank you!

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. 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 the one on the right is with mascara. i removed it on the other side. One thing this mascara claims is that your lashes will grow longer with prolonged use. I for one am willing to t ry this by buying more when this one runs out because i'm actually liking the mascara application.
I have fine lines, and my concealer really badly creases! I've used primer on my under-eyes, eye cream, lotion, many different concealers (tarte waterproof, tarte creaseless, kat von d tattoo, mac pro longwear and many more) along with many different powders. I've tried waiting a bit to set, and I've set it right after blending. Nothing seems to work, and it only gets worse throughout the day! I'm only 22 and I don't think this should be a huge issue at this age (fine lines)! Can anyone suggest an amazing combination? I've also tried doubling up on concealers/correctors. Nothing has worked! Also they are slightly dry, especially with mac pro longwear.

I recently tried the halo powder and am in love with the beautiful glowing finishing. The problem is that I can't seem to find a color match in smashbox . My skin is light/medium olive and the light/med powder was quite dark and a bit orange on my skin after it oxidized. The light/neutral powder looked quite pale. The Bare minerals in medium beige is a great color match but not the glowing finish of halo. I love how the halo glows without any trace of glitter or sparkle.
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.

Hey Girlies, I just got this email on the new Nars Palettes: Fairy Kisses and Flight to the Moon just thought everyone might want to take a peek to: Flight to the Moon Fairy Kisses I was hoping the Deeper Purple hues would hit for Fall and I got my wish!
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?)
Soooo Yeah this is happening. I like the eyeshadows and I plan on picking up more lippies and liners than I need. I should not be this excited about lipstick. They are only $5 for each lippie and $5 for the matching liner. The liner and lippies have the same name so you can match them easier if you choose to buy them both. I'm not going to get anything for Christmas...I've been nothing but bad (in a very good makeup way).
As a 3Y05, what color(s) should I get for bareMinerals' Complexion Rescue Tinted Hydrating Gel Cream, Burberry's Fresh Glow B.B. Cream, Giorgio Armani's Luminessence CC Color Control Bright Moisturizer SPF 35, and Laura Mercier's Secret Camouflage?
Update...after 15 minutes on hold, Sephora refunded the amount. As long as the refund goes through I'll drop this....but can't delete the post (what customers do when they're put on hold for 15 minutes). My package arrived via UPS repackaged, and missing the two Christian Louboutin lipsticks I'd ordered (the boxes were empty). UPS picked up the packaging; empty envelope and not the box Sephora sent it in. The label had been cut out and repasted on to the envelope. Ups confirmed that the packaging had been damaged and repackaged and that the new label was theirs. Sephora's outcome...no refund. I pay for 2 Louboutin lipsticks and get repackaged empty packaging. I have pictures, as does Sephora, of the envelope. I want my money back or the lipstick I ordered. Sephora told me to contest the charge with my credit card company (love you too Sephora).
My Color IQ is registered 4Y06 (tested in store) - Any idea what my closest color match would be for the Makeup Forever HD Stick ? Unfortunately it doesn't come up in my short list. Not too sure how else to find it... suggestions? Thanks in advance
