Glamglow Thirstymud-who wants it?
I know some people either love this or really dislike it.  I'm in the in-between crowd where it doesn't irritate my skin but it doesn't really do much for it either.  Anyways, i will be giving away a brand new jar of the mask.  Sticking with the favorites theme, it will go to the person who can guess my favorite actor.  Only for people living in the US.  hint: its not a TV star.

A Good Undereye Setting Powder Rec?
Hello everyone! Hope everyone's having a gorgeous day!   I need some good recommendations for an undereye setting powder and maybe a new concealer recommendation while I'm at it. My major concern is having the concealer look natural and having it not settle into fine lines. Here's some info about me:   -I'm a 2y09 with the IQ system here (so I'm kind of a coppery/tanned tone irl) -I have dry/normal skin with no blemishes anywhere besides the eye -Genetic dark circles that are a ***** to cover -I have seasonal allergies (Spring/Fall mostly) -Right now I use MUFE HD Concealer in 12 -I use LM Tinted Moisturizer in Tawny   I heard a lot of people recommend the Anastasia contour palette but I don't want to buy a whole palette if I'm going to use one color, you know? But I also have to do what I have to do so if it's highly recommended I'll bite the bullet.   Thank you for your help!

Did I just receive a USED product from Sephora?!
  omg..so I just received and opened my package ..and im mortified by what I see.. I got the urban decay smoked palette and it looks used or swatched..notice Kinky the lightest color has bristle strokes across..then evidence, loaded and asphalt all look like they have finger swatches..how can this be? Lol was someone doing their makeup at the warehouse or what.. I'm attaching pics so maybe someone can confirm what I fear..and no I have not even touched a single shadow ..I'm super super disappointed since this item is oos permanently and not available in Canada. Ugh to eyeshadow fails in one week...(got a bad batch of the ardency inn pigment: royal = patchy, stiff, dry). Sorry for the quality my hands were shaking in rage lol..

Best foundation for me?
Hi everyone, so I was wondering if someone could help me find the best foundation for me. I have very dry skin yet its also very oily. I also have acne and lots of acne scaring. When I wear a foundation or BB cream my skin always ends up peeling underneath of the foundation no matter how much moisturizer I use. I also want it to cover up my scars and blemishes but not be too thick. I really want to find a foundation that will cover everything I want it to, not crack up, wear all day, and not look caked. Thanks!

Bite Lip Lab Limiteds: What colors are you hoping for?
Hi you Bite fanatics! So we already have a discussion on the released colors here: http://community.sephora.com/t5/Makeup/Bite-Lip-La b-Sephora-color-of-the-month/td-p/1847087 but I wanted us to have a place to discuss what colors we were hoping would be released. For instance, what color would put you over the edge to make a purchase? For me, I would really love to see a sheer black.... or something similar to Givenchy Liv's Lips, or Lipstick Queen's Hello Sailor. I think that would be pretty amazing!! Especially if it's a Bite formula. Basically, I won't buy colors that are very common or easily dupe-able. Also, as a sidenote, it'd be really cool if people who went to the Bite Lip Lab could somehow figure out what the color formula is for the limited releases... It would look something like this, I guess: Formula: Creme Deluxe Scent: ? Flavor:? Colors: 2/3 Scarlet, 1/3 Tannin (just an example)

Dupe for the Sephora Professional Platinum Airbrush #55
Hi everyone! I have the Pro Platinum Airbrush #55 (the one with the silver handle) and absolutely love it! I've used it so much though that it's about time to get a new one, except it's already discontinued.   Is the new #55 anything like the old one in terms of size/shape? Are there other brushes that are quite similar? Any help would be much appreciated! Thanks in advance !

Goodbye Cruel World: The Discontinued Thread
WHAT? WHY? WHYYYYYYYYYYY?   The five stages of grief for a discontinued product:   1. Denial: "What? Maybe they just moved it off the display to make room for the new items. Can you search the back again?"   2. Anger: "WHY the heck would they do this? This is .... this will not stand! I'm .... AHHHH!"   3. Bargaining: "Can you just check the stock to see if you have any left? Ebay, yeah, I'll try that!!!! If you bring it back, I promise to repurchase regularly!"   4. Depression: "I really wanted that. Now it's gone. It's gone and it's too late. I ... what's the point of even going to Sephora now?"   5. Acceptance: "Ok, Google, give me a dupe for my discontinued holy grail."     We all have this happen to us- whether it be the discontinuation of our absolute favorite product, or the cessation of selling a product you were always planning on buying but never got a chance too...   Here is where we can support each other after the products we want are discontinued.

MAC Pro Longwear Concealer
I have heard a lot about this concealer. I was planning to return my select cover up concealer by MAC (does it stay as long as the pro longwear?) and exchange it for the Pro Longwear Concealer. But I go into the store and attempt to squeeze out the tiniest of product but it turned into this puddle across the back of my hand. What do you think of MAC's Pro Longwear Concealer? Is there any way to get a tiny bit of product out, because I only plan to use them under my eyes.

Something stinks, but why?
Last year I purchased a Bobbi Brown Hollywood palette at cosmetics store in an outlet mall. Once I pulled it out, I realized that it stunk. Really. Not a rancid stink, but more of a "I am super made out of petrochemicals" stink. FWIW, I noticed that unlike another BB pallete I have and love (Desert colors), this one was made in China. Do you think that shadows/etc made in China tend to have an unpleasant odor? Also, I can't help but wonder if it was a counterfeit. Thoughts?

SheaMoisture Metal Palette dupe for the MUFE XL Metal Palette
Hello BTers. I visited a Super Target I have not visited before. Of course I had to stop by the beauty section and I found these; empty palettes very similar to the MUFE metal XL palette? I’ve never seen or heard of them before. They are the SheaMoisture Create-Your-Palette Magnetic Tin. I knew SheaMoisture have a bath and body line, hair products and such. I didn’t know they also have an entire cosmetic line. They have singles of eye shadows, powders, blushers, bronzers and more. I also found they have empty palettes just like the metal palette from MUFE..   I have been waiting for MUFE to restock their metal palettes to purchase one but I have had no luck. This is the first time I have seen anything like this in a retail store. They seem to carry two sizes and there was only one of each left on the shelf and I bought both. The large one was $9.99 and it measures 8” x 6” x 1/2” (approximate) and the small one I got it for $5.99 and measures 8” x 3” x 1/2” (approximate). They are metal with hinges and lays flat when opened. They have a magnetic liner on one side and plain on the other/lid.   I am now wondering what else I can find out there. Have you seen these at your Target or any other retailer? Do you own one of these already? Do you own the MUFE metal palette? How do you like it if you own either one? Have you found anything that you thought you would never find at a retail store? http://www.sephora.com/metal-palette-P391918?skuId =1622612

Josie Maran Argan Cleansing Oil Dupe?
I have a mini size of the cleansing oil and I absolutely love it for the face and eyes. I am almost out of it so I am in search of a dupe. I would buy the full size, but I don't wear makeup often so I knew that it would expire before I got a chance to finish it, and I don't want to spend $32 on a product that I won't be able to finish. Any suggestions for a good dupe? The main thing I liked about it is that it was really good for removing heavy eye makeup and heavy face makeup, so that's mostly what I am looking for in a dupe, as well as it being a cleansing oil.

Sunscreen in fondation or applied seperately?
Last summer I had to have some basal cell cancer removed. Now I understand how important sunscreen is. My question, for your face, is it better to have  a foundation with sunscreen in it or to apply a separate sunscreen and foundation ? I have very dry skin so I don't know if that matters or not when it comes to which method is best. I have currently been using the IT Cosmetics CC cream foundation but that seems to irritate my rosacea.

Has anyone dealt w/ Anastasia Beverly Hills directly...
So I had researching contouring palettes to experiment with and I hadn't really been impressed by any one in particular. Reason being as usual many makeup companies tend to forget people with darker skin exist. And the other thing is, I'll find a palette that has maybe 1 or 2 useful shades and the rest are a waste. So my fave beauty guru Wayne Goss on youtube put the word out about ABH and the "Fill it yourself" contour palette on their website. I went to ABH and sure enough for about $40 you can fill your own 6-shade contour palette. With my discount the price was even cheaper. This was a fabulous idea seeing as how I got to pick directly from the wide spectrum of shades which ranged based on color and undertones. I was so excited I purchased right away. Then I went researching the company after the fact and discovered they have horrible RECENT customer service reviews (yikes!). There were complaints of how rude they were on the phone, incorrect orders, unshipped orders, etc. As for my own experience I felt as though a few things with their service could be a bit tidier..for instance there was never any shipping notification or tracking number. Umm yeah that's kinda important for those of us who live in apartments, work and don't have anyone else home all day. And my order arrived in 2 separate shipments. I got a few of my colors on the one day and I nearly flipped!! Then a day later the rest of the order came. Overall I'm happy with my product. Anyway, I was just wondering if anyone else had experience ordering from ABH directly and if so how'd things work out? Like I said, I'm pleased with the product but I'm a little leery regarding ordering from them again.

Which Designer Do You Wish Would Launch A MakeUp Line?
I have long wished that Moschino would start releasing cosmetics that go with the themes of their collections. I mean, seriously, can you even imagine the colors and packaging that they'd come up with to go along with these? I'm dying just thinking about it.   Carolina Herrera is another one I wish would get into cosmetics. One reason is she herself is impeccable. Also, I think she'd come up with the best lipstick shades and palettes ever. Stuff along these lines...   So, I'm curious - who do you think would absolutely kill it?

Does MAC fix+ actually make eyeshadows more pigmented?
I'm always looking for a way to make my eyeshadow intense as possible, so I've been looking into fix+. I see it hyped up on YouTube a lot, and I never seem to like anything hyped on YouTube which is why I am skeptical about it. Does it really make your eyeshadows more vibrant and pigmented? I know some people use water, but I don't see any difference in my eyeshadows when I wet them. I've also considered getting ben nye liquiset instead, but fix+ is a lot more convenient to get.
