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 was hoping for some advice in finding a well pigmented, golden highlighter for summer. I picked up the MUFE Pro Sculpting Duo in #2 Golden during the VIB sale but found it either doesn't show up or looks a bit ...splotchy? I'm debating exchanging it for NARS Jubilation but the reviews online aren't that great either so I'm open to suggestions! For reference this would be strictly for night time, full face looks which is why I wanted something a bit more pigmented. I'm an NC30 in MAC, Vanilla Glow in Too Faced BB, and Bamboo Beige in Laura Mercier. Thanks!
I have a small bald spot in my eyebrow because of a scar I have there and am looking for a product that would fill in my eyebrows and cover the little bald spot (It is rather small btw) Any suggestions? I have been looking at some Anastasia products. Are there any particularly good ones any one has tried? Also if you want to see what I am talking about with the bald spot you can see it clearly in some of the photos I have posted on my profile.
I just got a beautyblender and used it yesterday, once i finished i cleaned it then put it on top of its plastic container to dry and it still has not shrunk back to its former size. It has not shrunk at all! Does any one know why it is like that? or has this happened to any one else?
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?
There are the TF, Chanel, etc threads but what about Illamasqua. Us fans of the brand need to work a little harder... I became a fan, sadly, after they left Sephora (bring them back?) but now love them. Getting information is tougher. Today they're on Hautelook, tomorrow they release a new collection. Does it make sense to have a thread…to report on what's worth buying and the best way to get it? Perhaps not…but let's see...
I got a sample for the shade Perfect Ginger but I feel this is too dark on me, in fact it is now that I'm looking at it. I'm a match perfect for the new Nars foundation Fiji. Would the Praline product be closer to that? I'm supposedly a medium but my skin is a bit lighter than that. I was trying out foundations cause I want like a dewy finish but I have an oily nose and the rest of my face is normal. I was also considering YSL and I believe my shade would be B30. Any recommendations from a BT staff? I have a yellow undertone.
Hi everyone, I searched everywhere for this answer but can't seem to find one. So please point me in the right direction if this has been asked already! Does anyone know if Sephora will carry the gorgeous shimmery powder in the confetti case (part of the Spring 2015 collection)? I know they are basically sold out everywhere and Sephora is probably my only hope in Canada (I don't think Holt Renfrew or The Bay or Murale carries Givenchy makeup...just the fragrances). If so... might any one have an idea of a release date?

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 :-)
What are your favorite/recommended brushes? I've been debating for awhile now about saving up the money to buy the complete set from Sigma but I just don't know if I love their brushes enough. I have brushes from Mac, Sigma, and Zoeva but I was wondering if anyones found better ones? Or if there's specific must haves you want to mention?
I've heard good things and bad things about the Too Faced chocolate bar palette and I'm just not sure if I should purchase it or not I've gone into Sephora probably four different times and picked it up to buy it and ended up putting it back down before I went to checkout. Should I just buy it? What are your thoughts?
So, I did the lipstick challenge with Greenchilli and all the ladies in that thread and I thought it might be fun to do the same thing with blush. I don't have enough blush to get through a month, but I figure I'll go until I have gone through all my blush. So the challenge is: wear a different blush every day until you run out of blushes or reach 30 days. Anyone want to join me?

Just an hour after applying mascara, I notice little black flakes all over my under-eye and cheek area. It's especially noticeable because my skin is so fair. I don't wear contacts and I am really careful around my eyes specifically so I don't have little black flakes all over. The mascaras I have tried are: They're Real by Benefit Volum' Express Pumped Up Colossal by Maybelline Can someone suggest a mascara that won't flake all over my face? Or is there something I could be doing wrong that is making this happen?! Thanks
Oh man, I just received this in my email, and this is the first I'm seeing of it! I'm loving this collection! I'm a total NARS addict, and LE NARS is even more addicting! I already want the 'Starscape' blush, the eye duo, and the lilac multiple. Hopefully Sephora will get some of this for the summer as well... Anyone else as excited as I am?!
I know we've all talked about specific vloggers and YouTube gurus that we love, but I want to see which YouTubes inspire you! Post looks, tips, whatever! For those who don't know, you can click the little film strip along the top toolbar (3rd from the right) and paste a YouTube link which will then appear in your post. I flippin' love this video of Lisa Eldridge doing the quintessential Alexa Chung look on Alexa Chung.
have you ever had an a-ha moment after a very simple suggestion was thrown your way? i'm not talking years of practice leading to mastering the craft here. but rather when your makeup game changed for the better after a tiny tweak in technique and / or perspective. i was chatting with a friend about it, i realized i had a couple and thought it would be a cool thing to discuss here--for fun, and to share what could possibly be a-ha moments for others ! my first proper simple suggestion to how i approached makeup was years ago, but still after years of struggle to find a foundation that really did match my skin. a friend makeup artist told me i had neutral-to-yellow undertones (she also said 'olive but too pale to even tell'.... too pale to even tell will be the name of my memoirs ) and to try out japanese brand foundations. i eventually found bobbi brown, giorgio armani and nars, too, and that struggle was put to rest. my second ohhhhhh moment was relatively more recently, when i was advised to apply liner (particularly winged, liquid/gel liner) with my eyes open, rather than closed. this. changed. everything. for me. i'd always struggled because i have ever-so-slightly hooded eyes, and when i applied the perfect wing to closed eyes, everything was pointing the wrong way when i opened them. and with this simple suggestion, suddenly something i felt i'd never learn how to swing was remarkably easy and almost foolproof. same goes for eyeshadow (particularly in the crease) though to a lesser degree. how about you ??
In the summer i'm going to be a attending a lot of festivals and things where I will be outside all day. Where I live it gets pretty hot and humid. What is a good foundation that lasts all day without it making my face feel greasy/sweaty or oily. I have normal skin but it does tend to get a little dry especially around the sides of my nose but over all its pretty normal.
I CANT FIND A GOOD FOUNDATION!!!!!!! I HAVE THE KAT VON D COLOR TATTOO FOUNDATION AND ITS OKAY WHEN IM JUST WEARING IT FOR MAYBE 4 HOURS. WHEN I PUT ANY POWDER OVER IT OR BRONZER OR HIGHLIGHTER IT GETS WEIRD AND CAKEY!! I WANT A FOUNDATION TO LOOK DEWY AND NATURAL WITH A BRONZER BLUSH AND HIGHLIGHTER OVER IT! IM SO TIRED OF SPENDING SO MUCH MONEY ON ALL THESE FOUNDATIONS! PLEASE HELP!! I ALSO DONT WANT TO SPEND MORE THEN MAX $40. I HAVE COMBINATION SKIN BTW ALSO IM 14 YEARS OLD
I attended today's Rouge event in VA and for the life of me could not locate Stila. I asked a SA and was told Sephora would no longer be carrying the brand, with the exception of their black eyeliner (I'm not sure which formula). My friend in CA also noticed Stila was missing. Is Sephora phasing the brand out on a whole or was this just select stores? Should we be looking forward to some great Stila sales? I'm a bit disappointed, since I've recently started exploring the brand again! The Nouveau Natural Eye Shadow Palette is amazing! EDIT- We have our answer! Stila has been pulled from some stores, while others are still carrying it and the brand will still be available online
I have seen posts on setting spray usage and I am confused. Do most of you put it on after foundation and before powder? After powder and blush? Do you also spray it to include your eye makeup or not? I worry that getting it near my mascara will make it smudge? I thought I knew what I was doing but now I am completely confused!
I've been looking into my makeup stash and realized, wow I do own A LOT of foundations/BB cream, here's my list (and my impressions): CHANEL Vitalumière Aqua (beautiful finish...but tends to be too dewy for my combo skin) CHANEL Perfection Lumière Velvet (LOVE LOVE!) MUFE HD (my HG foundation) MUFE Pro Finish (my HG powder foundation) MUFE Mat Velvet + (I love this one, but too matte to be used in winter) IT COSMETICS CC Cream (not my favorite but I like it) TARTE 12-hour full coverage foundation (feels heavy and "mask-like" on the skin) TARTE BB Tinted Treatment (beautiful finish/cover but I think it breaks me out) TARTE Full Coverage Airbrush Foundation (Just doesn't do it for me...) ILLAMASQUA Skin Base (what was I thinking?) LIOLE Beyond the Solution (nice coverage but tends to feel heavy on skin) LIOLE Triple the Solution (another cake face alert) SKIN 79 Hot Pink Super BB Balm (nice coverage but tends to lean on gray side) BAREMINERALS Original (Simple and natural, I love this one when my skin behaves !) and...countless drugstore foundations that never seem to work well with my combination/sensitive skin ! And what about your collection ? Are you a foundation hoarder like myself ? I would like to know
Just curious, I thought I'd ask to see what makeup product others find themselves buying the most of. (For example, eyeshadows, mascaras, foundations, blushes... etc..) For myself, I am perpetually buying more lipstick than I probably need. It usually takes me forever to even finish ONE, but yet I still seem to be always looking at/buying more of them, haha! :-)
So, I'm somewhat new to this whole makeup thing. I'm 20 years old, with fair, combination-oily skin. My cheeks tend to be red and sensitive also. I'm wondering if anyone can suggest a foundation or bb cream for my skin, and also a light powder to finish it off. I've tried Clinique's almost powder and it seems to cake on my face, and shows every line. I'm looking for something that isn't extremely heavy on my face since it's almost summer. Also if you have any recommendations for a lip stain or lipstick that will stay put all day and not run, that would be great.
