what is a good contour and/or highlight for deep skin tones?

I have used MAC's blush in the color Blunt to contour for deeper skin tones. It looks very natural for that color range! see post

What do you do with leftover makeup?
I have a little bit of BareMinerals Foundation left that I do not want to use anymore, but I have no idea what I should do with it. Toss it out seems like a waste, but I really have no use of it, nor does anyone around me. Same with the Mineral Veil. Any genius ideas? I know y'all BTers here have amazing ideas for practically everything.

Francois Nars... I love you but you always break my heart!!!
They just discontinued the Nars Lip Laquer in Chelsea Girls!  I was looking for it for a while and the Nordstrom's Beauty Stylist had to break it to me that it is being discontinued which is why it's no longer on the Nars or Nordstroms websites.  So I jumped on Sephora and they had it as in stock.  When I went to check out, it popped up that the item is no longer available!!!  I loved that lip gloss!  I didn't even have time to stock up...  It's gone the way of Chasity and the other gorgeous lip lacquers before it.  Is it me or is it highly annoying when you get no notice that something is being discontinued?  I love Nars with all my heart and have been loyal to them for 15+ years but at least give some notice when getting rid of a staple product.  I loved Chelsea Girls since I saw it on Sarah Jessica Parker on Sex in The City.  The perfect nude beige.  I'll miss it and I do wish that there could be some communication on the website about long time items not being restocked once the item sells out.  But then again, you'll never see Nars doing a "Discontinued Product Sale" either.      Being in love with Francois Nars is like getting your heart ripped out a million times but you keep going back. I'll just beware to stockpile things I love before he changes his mind that he still likes the item!

Best Travel/All-in-One Makeup Palette??
I've been looking for a all-in-one makeup palette for travel, but it seems they sell out pretty fast (or aren't replenished often). Ideally, I want something with a blush, mascara, eyeliner, a lip color, and a few eye shadows. (I'm not really focusing on the foundation since most of these palettes are for lighter skin than mine.) Suggestions?

Clean Freaks
Are any of you clean freaks? I absolutely hate it when my products get dirty. I hate when I have to pour foundation out and it gets around the mouth of the bottle and I can't clean every last bit of it and it just ends up dirtying the entire inside of the cap. I also hate getting concealer around the opening and dirty mirrors from powder fallout.

That's that STUFF I don't like...makeup edition
I've seen a lot of YTers do this video and I thought it would be fun to do a makeup edition.   This is just for fun and giggles   So here are the guidelines, you don't have to name companies(but you can if you want), but just post things about makeup that you DON'T like.   I'll go first.  LOL   Mid to high priced foundation that don't come with a pump!  If I'm paying 40+ for a foundation give me the 5 cent pump!   Lip products that you have to use your finger to apply.  That is so nasty to me, even if you wash your hands you still putting OTHER stuff on your lips when you use your fingers OR those products that you have to use a brush (OCC lip tars!) I love those colors but I don't have time or the inclination for a brush.  (My microbiology prof had us wash our hands, then wipe our fingers on a slide.  We left it in the warmer (which is kept at body temp) and came back and 2 days.  OHMYGAWD what grew on that slide was DISGUSTING.  I can't do finger only applied products to my lips. NEVER.)   Makeup lines that don't expand their colors!  GRRRR!  women of ALL colors love makeup why don't companies think of that or seem to care about that!?   So that is that stuff you don't like?

Foils/Small Sample Traveling Box
    There was someone who was going to do a foils/small sample TSB. I do not believe that person is still going to do it. If they are, I apologize and will not do one. I have been in two boxes and loved it but I have never started one. If anyone is still interested, I am willing to try to start  one. We can use the same rules from the other TSB. Please let me know if anyone is interested. Also we need to decide if we want to do this with a small flat rate box (I believe shipping is around $6.00) or a medium flat rate box (I believe shipping is around 13.00). If you are going to participate, please be prepared for the shipping costs! This box is open for US shipping only. Shipping becomes more expensive for Canada.   Once we decide if we want to do a small or medium box I will post pics of what I will start the box out with. If at that time someone decides they don't like what I am starting the box out with just let me know. I want this to be fun for all.   Once I get the box back I will go through it & give the leftover items to the local youth group who works with the homeless shelters in Fredericksburg VA.

Which is the better setting spray?
Hello! I'm trying to decide which makeup setting spray to purchase. I've heard great things about the URBAN DECAY All Nighter Long-Lasting Makeup Setting Spray and know that it is a cult favorite. I noticed that the  KAT VON D  Lock 'N Load Makeup Setting Mist is quite a bit cheaper so I'm wondering if works better (or the same). Any notes on either of the sprays would be much  appreciated !

All Time Favorite Makeup Brand
If you could choose only 1 brand overall to use or for each individual brand for eyes, lip products, etc... what would you choose?   For me, I would have to pick Urban Decay for eyeshadow hands down. Cheek products would definitely be Tarte. I really don't know what I would choose for lipstick and lip gloss because there are so many brands that have beautiful lipstick!   What's your favorite??

How to wear coral lipstick? Too Faced melted lipstick in creamy coral!
I always loved coral on others but never thought I could pull it off… I went in today and ended up buying the new Too Faced melted lipstick in creamy coral. I'm not really sure how to pull it off.. whats the best way to do the eyes with a coral?

Go to BB cream?
Okay Ladies and Gents I want to know your go to BB cream and why!   I purchased the Garner BB cream back when the BB cream hype had just begun.  I was so disappointed that I spent so much on a BB cream that didn't match me and I just felt like an oil ship on my face.  So now I want to dive back in and need your help.   I recently moved from NJ to FL and have found that I need to find something light to wear on these hot days.  I would like something with medium coverage, just because I have bad acne scarring that I am shy about. My skin type right now is normal (SHOCKER, trust me I never thought i would write those words). I get the usual t zone oil, but that's about it, nothing excessive.   I am hoping that when I read about your favorite BB creams it can help me decide which one to use!

Pink Beauty Blender is smaller than Purple Beauty Blender
I was wondered about this when I went to JC Penny to get my friend a make over. I was waited for her,  I saw they have pink and purple beauty blender on the makeup station. While I was holing it, I realized the pink is smaller than the Purple one. I bought one in Pink color, when they said keep the box for air dry the beauty blender. Every time, I tried to put the BB on top on the box come with it. my bb could not stand up for air dry.

Foundation and Concealer Help!!!
Hello. In the past weeks, I have been attending Sephora's Beauty Classes (Chicago, IL) but alas I haven't bought anything yet (in the future I will 😉). But, I do have a question regarding foundation and concealer. Well. I am African-American with a colorID of 1r12. But, I was recently using Urban Decay Foundation in shade 10 but I felt the foundation was too dark for me. So, I need help trying to find a BETTER foundation that is not going my skin complex to look dark-looking. Also, I have been using Benefit Cosmetics concealer in Deep 5 (I believe) please don't judge me at all. Can anyone help me?

favorite palette at the moment
Hi ladies, Lately I've seen a lot of new palettes come out and I was wondering which one you've been loving lately . I just picked up the Monarch palette from KVD and I'm in love! I l adore the packaging, the shadows are so pigmented, and it's just gorgeous. It's actually a huuge palette so you're getting a lot of product for only $46 dollars which I think is a great price for all of the shadows you're getting.  xoxo, Kelly P.S I use Entomology as a highlight for my cheeks and it's perfect imo

What are your unplanned buys during the 15% off sale?
I know most of us had a list before the sale began, but if you are anything like me, you had bought a few extra things   So share your unplanned buys and why you got them?   Mine were:  Shu uemura eyelash curler--lost mine, so that's a legitimate reason. I am so lucky that the sephora beside me carries Shu uemura XD)   Caudalie my kit for hydration--not my favorite moisturizer from Caudalie, but it's fine too. The fact that it came with a cleansing water (which is awesome) plus the 15% off pushed it into the basket   Marc Jacobs remedy concealer pen--I was under stress...and wanted to try something new. I love the metal tip very looking for it to finally come into the mail    Josie Maran Argan Infinity Lip And Cheek Creamy Oil in limitless pink--its new! i love the idea of a cream blush that comes in a tube. and i love josie maran and the fact that the cap is wide enough that it can stand on its own
