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!

Drugstore TSB
Hi everyone,   I've been cleaning out my stash and have a TON of drugstore products I'd like to pass along to others, so I was thinking of starting a drugstore TSB for anyone who's interested.    If you'd like to participate, you must have at least 500 hearts. Once we have a confirmed list of participants, I'll ask that everyone PM their shipping address on to the person before them.    Since I live in a tiny town with no nearby shelters to donate to, Missey1973 has agreed to take the box at the end of the round and donate it to her local shelter, where she has taken a previous TSB. (I want to add that Missey mentioned that there are guys at the shelter as well, so definitely feel free to include men's products if you have any!)   Pretty standard TSB rules: Spoiler (Highlight to read) Rules DO INCLUDE: -new and gently used beauty products -sample and full size items are all ok -mainly drugstore products, but high end products are welcome too -labels for anything that's used/swatched -sanitized products if they're used/swatched -pictures of your proposed trades, and await the approval of a couple other members before shipping it off -the same amount or more than what you take -men's products if you have any DO NOT INCLUDE: -anything gross or items that can't be adequately sanitized -premade samples -less than what you took -Heavily used items (unless someone requests it specifically) SHIPPING: -We'll use a USPS large flat rate box for priority shipping ($17.90) -Please post the tracking number once you ship the box -Please don't hold on to the box for more than three days. RulesDO INCLUDE:-new and gently used beauty products-sample and full size items are all ok-mainly drugstore products, but high end products are welcome too-labels for anything that's used/swatched-sanitized products if they're used/swatched-pictures of your proposed trades, and await the approval of a couple other members before shipping it off-the same amount or more than what you take-men's products if you have anyDO NOT INCLUDE:-anything gross or items that can't be adequately sanitized-premade samples-less than what you took-Heavily used items (unless someone requests it specifically)SHIPPING:-We'll use a USPS large flat rate box for priority shipping ($17.90)-Please post the tracking number once you ship the box-Please don't hold on to the box for more than three days. So, who's interested?   Edit: Depending on how quickly we get a list going, I'm aiming to send this box out some time in the 2nd week of February.   Starting: DolceLoure 1. Onceuponatime45 2. Buggirl 3. Sprytely 4. JazaChai 5. StephaniLynn 6. blondesluv2shop 7. kelloua 8. DolceLoure 9. Missey1973 (will do her trades and then donate the goodies to local shelter)

Urban Decay Thread!
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?

A setting powder for ladies who don't like powder?
Hello ladies I'm in search of a setting powder (who isn't?). I'd rather not use powder at all but the foundation I use does require it, unfortunately.   I love Diorskin Nude for touchups since it has the "barely there" look but I feel it's not the right powder to put on after fresh foundation. I have a sample of the MUFE HD Powder that I've been using, it seems to be a relatively good match but I can't quite figure out how to use it proper. Also not too crazy about the Laura Mercier power, I had high hopes for it. Am I using these wrong? My face is very sticky & moisturized after fresh foundation.   My skin type is very dry .... I appreciate all suggestions!   http://www.sephora.com/diorskin-nude-air-powder-P3 94000?skuId=1665330

Marc Jacobs Beauty | News & Discussion
It seems high time for a separate thread for the Marc Jacobs Beauty collection (I checked, but didn't find one!). This thread will be the place to post sneak peeks and information about new products and special collections and also to generally discuss our interest in and experience with MJ beauty products. If you are an existing fan or have questions about a particular product or want to explore the brand for the first time, feel free to join the discussion. To start off, I recently purchased the LE Style Eye Con No. 20 Holiday Palette during the VIB sale, but I have yet to use it or even swatch the colors on myself. It is currently still in "sacred relic" mode in my mind, but I'm also intimidated as it is my first ever large palette purchase. I'm not an eyeshadow expert by any means, in knowledge nor in application. I would like to begin this discussion by inviting those of you who have this palette to post eye looks that you have created with it. I need some ideas!     And of course feel free to post about anything else related to MJ beauty should you be so inclined! I'm curious to know everyone's experience with the brand.... Which products do you absolutely love and would recommend to anyone and everyone, and which products just didn't do it for you?

Products to Use Up in 2016
One of the YouTubers that I watch posted a video the other day about the products she used up in 2015. At the beginning of this year, she had picked a bunch of products she wanted to use up and now she reported whether each one was a success or fail.   I thought this was a great idea and I have created my list for 2016.

New foundation and application questions?
Hi guys!  Alright, so typically I prefer my foundation totally full coverage and matte.  Although, lately this whole new trend of making yourself look "dewy" looks really nice but I just don't know how to achieve it and what foundation I should look for. I use BareMinerals original foundation right now which is my 100% holy grail. I'm a fair in basically everything but do any of you know what foundations are known to give a full or build able coverage that is dewy or.. gives you a glow? Also, I've been looking into using a Beauty Blender. Only reason I haven't been able to buy it is because to me it doesn't seem worth it.. but I could definitely be wrong. Is it long lasting? How is the finish from the Beauty Blender?  If any of you could help me, then that would be amazing!!

Need advice on a makeup line for dry skin?
Maybe something hypoallergenic also because my skin is not only dry but it is sensitive as well. I am thinking I have to start all over and purchase from a particular line. Any suggestions help a great deal Thanks in advance!

Lip Liner that Goes Best With Kat Von D's lipstick in 'Damned'
Hello Sephora Family!   I am new to this forum, and I am new to the makeup scene.    Sometime on Friday, I went to the nearest Sephora store inside my local JCPenny, and a associate helped me pick out some really good concealer, and she helped me pick out lipstick.   The first lipstick she suggested to me was Kat Von D's Everlasting Liquid Lipstick in the color Damned and the other one was a red glossy lipstick from Too Faced, but I favored Kat's lipstick better.    Now that I have the liquid lipstick, I'm just having a hard time finding a lip liner that will compliment the lipstick color, as the lipstick is a dark cherry color. Does anyone know what color lip liner will go best with KVD's lipstick in the color Damned? Please let me know. Thank you ever so much!

Thanks, Keelybt!!! The next time I head over to Sephora, I'll definitely look at those lip liners, but I don't think they carry Burberry at my local Sephora.  see post
Makeup & Skincare Inventory 2016
Over the past year, I've acquired more makeup and skincare products than I think I ever have. I decided to create an inventory list to keep track of what I own and I will do an update once per quarter on my progress.   My goal is to decrease the amount of products I own in each category, by using up what I have (especially the blue categories in which I own a lot of).    My initial inventory (as of 1/3/2016): Spoiler (Highlight to read) Feel free to join me & share your initial inventory and quarterly updates in this thread.   Share initial inventory by: January 31, 2016 Q1 update: March 31, 2016 Q2 update: June 30, 2016 Q3 update: September 30, 2016 Q4 update: December 31, 2016
