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!

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?

Let's talk about it....thoughts on it cosmetics?
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.

Burberry Beauty Updates
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?

Cleaning natural hair makeup brushes
Hi, So I recently got a bunch of natural hair brushes to replace most in my Sigma set that weren't picking up my powder makeup that well. That being said, what's the best way to clean them? I've read people like using Dr. Bronners, but are the scented ones okay? I've also heard of people using baby shampoo. Also, what do people do in between washes to spot clean them? For my Sigma set, since they are all synthetic, I just used an rubbing alcohol/dish soap mix I made and spritz it on a tissue and wipe the brushes every time I use them to spot clean. I've also heard you need to condition natural hair brushes. How often would I need to do that and with what? Thanks in advance for the help!

POSITIVE BEAUTY/LIFE EXPERIENCES THREAD
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?? (:

High Beauty Product Expectations = High Disappointments
Have you ever had a really high expectation over a beauty product, and in your mind this product will change everything, but when you put it on your face, you hear the car breaks sound? This is how I feel about the Kat Von D eyeliner in Trooper.   I've had my perfect HG eyeliner for years, I hardly ever use anything else, and when I do, it doesn't ever compare to my one and only Stila. Recently, I have been lusting over KVD's liner in Trooper. I read raving reviews, heard many people speak highly about this product, it was completely hyped up in my mind. Yet, I had hesitated to purchase, feeling like I would be betraying my one true love. Kat Von D then released the limited edition liner and I was sold. I needed to finally try this liner. I purchased it, without guilt, in my mind I apologized to new Stila liner (I had just opened a new liner and threw my old one away) and said "I'm probably never using you again".   I should explain why I'm not 100% faithful to my Stila liner. I hate the felt tip, after a couple of uses it starts to wear down (have remove felt hairs from the tip), and makes it harder to be draw a precise line. But after you remove the hairs, at her prime she is a dream, glides beautifully, easy to draw, and it's waterproof! I wished for a replacement that did not have a felt tip, and for a matte finish.   Once I received my KVD liner, I couldn't wait to apply it, to draw my perfect winged line. I always start on the inner part of my eye and work my way to the outer, draw wing and connect. I have no complaints on the actual pen or the brush tip, it's actually my favorite, but the color is just not black enough. I feel like I have to redraw my line a couple of times for it to be strong, never had this problem with Stila. Honestly, that wasn't a deal breaker. I can reapply and deal with wastefulness. We get back from dinner and my husband puts on a romantic comedy movie from Netflix, I knew waterworks were coming. I always cry. Of course I cried, cleaned myself as carefully as one can clean. After the movie is finished, I go to the bathroom and look at my face. I have black running down my cheeks (wearing my waterproof HG mascara), the inner part of my liner is completely gone, wings gone, I have NEVER had this happen with my Stila. With my Stila liner I can watch a romantic comedy and cry, wipe, and my wings are always there. I am officially done with my affair, 100% devoted to Stila until a better version comes along.   So now to my question, have any of you ever had a really high expectation for a beauty product and were highly disappointed? Let me know.

Run & buy this now! Sephora Black Magic Makeup Remover Cloths
Sephora Black Magic Makeup Remover Cloths So first off I must start by saying they are out of stock online but it looks like they are at most retail Sephora stores.   Personally, I never used the pink makeup eraser. I thought spending over $20 for a one time towel was too much for my wallet. (imo) So when Sephora came out with their version, the Black Magic Makeup Remover Cloths, well, I was over the moon!   So here is the deal:  1. You get two cloths in each zippered pouch 2. Total cost for the product is $12 3. All you need to do is dampen the cloth and then it magically wipes off all your makeup, EVEN YOUR WATERPROOF EYE MAKEUP! I was freaking out the first time I used it! 4. Caring for it is up to debate. Some people say after one use you should throw in the washing machine. Others say just rinse it and could go for a few more day or up to a week.  That's really up to the individual in my opinion.   WHY DO I LOVE THESE WONDERFUL REMOVER CLOTHS? Well... I no longer have to suffer from the smell of makeup remover wipes. That's huge!!! Also, I never became a fan of the makeup remover wipe constantly burning my eyes as I removed my eye makeup. Oh, and it's better for the environment because you are creating less waste.   Okay, I rarely if ever do product reviews on here but I am so sold on these makeup cloths. Right now I have four of them (two packs) and I think I am going to go to the store tomorrow to buy more.  Yes, they are that good.  Okay, I've rambled enough. Thanks for listening

I love it when they get Lucky Brand jeans and capris in the warehouse. I get every finish/color! see post
Does anyone have experience with Rituel de Fille?
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?)

Burberry Beauty is coming to Sephora!
The rumors were true!  Burberry makeup is coming to Sephora -- some items are already in stock.    I love Burberry makeup.  I really hope the nearest Sephora to me carries this in store.   http://www.sephora.com/burberry?node=1050000

Besame Cosmetics...
If you're interested in old Hollywood glam I would highly suggest checking out this brand.  They have a small but beautiful collection of cosmetics including "Violet brightening powder" for your face and "Cake Mascara".    I have never seen anything like the mascara before. It comes in a dry cake (obviously) which you then mix with water to get the right consistency. The really cool thing about this mascara is that you can spritz it with disinfectant to get rid of bacteria, fungus, and mold. Amazing! And because you wet it every time you use it never dries out prematurely.    NOTE: Sorry this sounds a little bit like an ad, I swear they didn't pay me to say this, I'm just really excited about this brand.   EDIT: I'll review the mascara and violet powder on this post when I get them.

Tutorials
Hey everyone!  I'm still something of a newbie to makeup myself, and I was wondering who everyone like to follow for makeup tutorials.  So far, I'm a fan of Makeup Geek and Jaclyn Hill, but I know I'm only scratching the surface here.  I thought it would be nice to have a resource available for other newbies, so if you guys post your favorites, I'll add them here for everyone's future reference.     Makeup Geek The Education section of the website is a great resource, and if you're tempted, you can purchase her products right there.  The YouTube channel is also linked below.  She does fashion posts, too. www.makeupgeek.com https://www.youtube.com/user/MakeupGeekTV   Jaclyn Hill If you don't already know Jaclyn Hill, she's really risen in fame recently, and I think for good reason!  She's a professional makeup artist who does mostly nude looks.  She recently collaborated with Becca to launch Champagne Pop. http://www.jaclynhillmakeup.com/ https://www.youtube.com/user/Jaclynhill1
