 It's already available online at YSL, but hasn't launched worldwide yet, so I was curious as to when Sephora might get it. I'm pretty exited for it becasue it makes some big claims: "Feels like a feather. Wears like an ink. No more compromise. 24 hours of soft-matte perfection and comfort. Our exclusive fine-as-ink formula perfects the skin yet wears weightlessly all day. Never cakey or heavy. Feel the difference of all day perfection and freedom."

Oh Sephora, why oh why do you let brands review their own products like this? Just so tacky!

Elf released these mineral pearls for Fall 2014. They are LE and cost $8. I saw the post about these on Musings of a Muse, and my jaw dropped because they look so similar to the Meteorites. I am not the biggest fan of Elf products, although I do like their Studio brushes, and I have never tried Meteorites, but I doubt these would be on par with quality. However, according to the Muse, these come in two different shades with 6 different pearls that are supposed to do the same perfecting thing the Meteorites do. Thoughts? Will anyone be trying these?

Okay, since this is a Sephora board, I'm sticking with the popular brands of make-up that are sold at Sephora.   What words, terms, concepts do you associate with the following brands? It doesn't matter if your associations are logical, rational or completely batsh!t crazy - what do YOU think of when you think of the following brands?    I'll do mine in a separate post to keep things clean for copy/paste purposes.   Anastasia Beverly Hills -   Bare Minerals -   BECCA -   Benefit -   BITE -   Bobbi Brown -   Buxom -   Clinique -  Cover FX -  Dior -  Estee Lauder -  Givenchy -  Guerlain -  Hourglass -  Kat Von D -  Lancome -  Laura Mercier -  MAKE UP FOR EVER -  Marc Jacobs -  NARS -  Smashbox -  Stila -  Tarte -  Too Faced -  Urban Decay -  YSL -  I think I got almost all of the common ones talked about on this board... but if you don't have any thoughts on any of them, feel free to leave them blank or ? or whatever... it's just for fun to see how people view things differently!    Also it's Friday and this is definitely a fun time-killer and a version of a Friday Questions!
Good morning beauties!  Question, for those who have the No Foundation Serum … do you throw away the cap and leave the applicator in the bottle?  Or do you only dip the applicator into the bottle to apply and when your finished close it with the cap?   I think I'm overcomplicating this and way over thinking -  so your insight are much appreciated! 
Hi guys! Im thinking of buying my very first bobbi brown products and Im not sure what to get. Any suggestions?    Thanks

Anybody see the pictures!!! Swoon! I've only bought a few Mac products here and there and never a collection. However, the release date is my birthday! (nothing evvverrrr happens on my birthday!) But I really love the smokey-ness to this collection. I have my eye on the "An Amorous Adventure Eyeshadow Quad" the blue swatched is gorgeous! I am not one to buy single shadows endless I hit pan on one in a palette and I really love the colors in this quad!   SO what is everyones thoughts about this collection? Anything that's making your Credit card itch to be swiped? Or hide     **also did anyone notice that one of the posters manhunks is styled like GOT Khal Drogo?
I've traditionally used Clinique because it's hypoallergenic but am still having sensitivity issues. My skin stays red and irritated, and frequently peels or is oily (or both at the same time... which I didn't know was possible). I also have a problem with clogged pores and am allergic to a lot of fragrances. Anyone have recommendations, please??
To all my Canadian ladies. Where can I find Lorac products in Canada? I've been going back and forth to Canada since the BF is there. I haven't had any luck finding the Lorac Pro at Ulta so I wanted to know if it's sold anywhere in Canada.
Are there any popular brands, sold by Sephora or anywhere else, that you just aren't into or don't consider for whatever reason - consciously or subconsciously?    Like, for me, for whatever reason, I don't even know why, I never even look at Make Up Forever or Cover FX... and probably plenty of others. But obviously plenty of people love both brands and promote them when people are looking for products.

Is anyone else drooling over this new palette by Makeup Forever?  It looks gorgeous.  I'm also intrigued because I've never tried MUFE eyeshadows (other than a cream eyeshadow I have).  I think I read that all these shades are available to purchase separately from their new line of shadows.  If anyone here gets it, please swatch and share!  Has anyone tried the new MUFE eyeshadows yet?     This gets me excited about fall clothes and boots!!!       http://www.sephora.com/artist-palette-P388223?skuI d=1622885

This is my second order of Give Me Some Lip. My fav is the full size Smashbox with the cushy paddle like applicator and the Buxom with a great tingle feeling. Anyone else have this set? What do you think beauties?
eeee!!! She commented on twitter thanking us that her lipsticks were number one and I sent her back a tweet: @thekatvond @Sephora PLEASE consider making another Train case! They are so beautiful but I need more space! Multi-tiered please! #iheartu   She sent me back: @amycishere @Sephora I know! I thought about design a new train case where you can customize the compartments! How rad would that be?!   I replied back: @thekatvond @Sephora omg that would be amazing! You just made my day by replying! Been a tough week! Thank you!!   She replied AGAIN!! @amycishere tough week for you and me both! We'll muscle through it though, yeah?   OMG!!!!! She is SUCH a sweetheart! Met her a few years ago and she is amazing!!!

Ladies,   What's your quick-n-easy routine? If you've got about 5 min, what's your must-haves?   Thanks! Megan
So yesterday I tested out the brushes from the brush set while I was getting ready to go out for dinner last night and I have to say I really like them. They're really soft and well made. There was a teeny bit of shedding though.   Retail Value- $40 Estimated Value per brush- $15 Estimated MSRP - $225   Pros:   Price Quality  Well made   Cons:   Exclusive to Target 2 sets per Target store Sells out quickly in store and online HTF Little bit of shedding Some may be deformed due to packaging or you get a double of one brush.  Availability - until October if they can keep up with the demand according to SK customer service       Favorite Brushes   Contour Brush Pencil Brush Blush Brush    The contour brush is EVERYTHING!!!! It is very comparable to the NARS Ita and MAC 163 brushes (I personally think it's a lot better). I used it to contour my nose as well and I really liked the way it turned out. This brush gave me cheekbones and the sculpted effect that my Real Techniques contour brush wasn't giving me!   The pencil brush picked up a lot of color easily and in even though I barely dipped my brush in the eyeshadow I was using. I suggest tapping it off quite a bit so the color isn't so intense and you don't get a ton of fallout.   The blush brush is really nice. It picks up the right amount of blush so the most intense color will be toned down and wearable.   Least Favorite Brushes   Blending Brush Buffing Brush  Angled Multipurpose Brush   The blending brush is way too big for me personally. It was hard to blend my transition color with it due to the large size so I used my MAC 217. This was also the only brush that was deformed. It does work as a cheek highlighting brush if you want a more concentrated glow on the high points of the face.   The buffing brush is a bit too dense and absorbed too much product. I used it to apply foundation and I had to use 3 pumps instead of 1. I don't know what I will use this for later.   The angled multipurpose brush was very difficult to work with for me personally. I used it to blend my concealer and it was a mess. I had to use my BB to blend the rest of my concealer. I'll play around a bit to see if I can find another use for it. I may use it for cream contouring.     Final Verdict   Overall I think this a really good set to have if you're starting out or if you're a total makeup junkie and you love LE products. This set would also make an amazing gift as well. I'm  going to play  with the brushes that I didn't like so much to find alternative uses for them or use them in conjunction with other brushes to make them work. I may end up liking them later in the future. I hope Sonia Kashuk is able to stay on top of the demand and each Target gets more than 2 per each restock and that the Target website will restock quickly as well.     I hope you all enjoy my review!  
Do Support do makeup and give lessons to guys who cross dress and do they have private consultation rooms for this? Thanks
I didn't see any active threads and discovered it today online so just want to spread the word to those who love the products like me!
Hello Beauties, I know traveling boxes can make some people a little uneasy because they can get stolen along the way (or whatever the case may be). I was thinking of using this thread to arrange Box swaps instead. We can all post the items that are up for swap, hopefully with pictures and estimated price total, and we can look and see which bundle most appeals to us and ask to trade with that one person.     Traditional rules apply:     ☆ VIB or VIB Rouge members only ☆ Must be active on BT ☆ Must have at least 150 hearts ☆ Majority must be high-end products ☆ Deluxe samples and high-end foils are allowed ☆ Lightly used and "swatched" products allowed but must be stated (keep it sanitary!) ☆ Must provide tracking number with shipping ☆ Must include your state of residence in your posting (to help others roughly gage shipping cost)   Well, show us what you got and let's see if we manage to trade
Have you guys seen these?! There are tons of shades and finishes to choose from, and you can build your own palette! I can't wait to try these; I wonder if Sephora will carry all of the shades? There are so many and I'd really like to go in and test a good chunk of them.     http://www.sephora.com/artist-shadow-P387670?skuId =1622745
I've been using the pencil for the longest time, but got to try out a sample of the brow powder duo today and absolutely loved it. It seems easier to apply, and looks more natural (to me). For those of you who've used both of these, how do they compare to you? Is the staying power of the powder duo long enough (or longer than the pencil?)?

Maaaannnn. Whenever I look around on here, everyone has these awesome eyebrows. Very neat/tidy and that awesome high arch.   My eyebrows are a mess. I used to get a anastasia wax brow treatment every month or so but I moved to Canada and I can't seem to find that same treatment anywhere. Right now I'm just pluckin' at them myself but obviously I suck at it.   What products do you guys use and how? Gel? Pencils? Powder?! I want tidy eyebrows!   Here are my eyebrows. Daaaaaamn.
Is anyone interested in starting a new box, or know of a current thread with open spots? I've been wanting to get in on one of these ^_^

  I don't know if any of you ladies know about this but Sonia Kashuk just came out with a LE 15 piece brush set in celebration of their 15th anniversary. I just picked up the last one in my town today during my lunch break. I personally think this is a steal. It is $40 at Target.   If you can find it, I suggest to get it right there and then because this set is sold out almost everywhere and each Target in the US and Canada each get 2 sets. Go on to Target's website and use the "find in a Target store" and click on "pick up in store" if it shows up to reserve it. Sonia Kashuk is trying to keep it in stock but it keeps selling out. This set will be available until October according to their customer service line.     If anyone wants to know how they perform, let me know and I will do a small review here on BT. 
I would really like to know how to do a simple smokey eye look. I have tried multiple times but i cant seem to get it. Is there any advice or tips you can give me??
I'll be on camera for work and have to do my own makeup.  What's the best makeup for face, eyes, lips ???

  Apparently this baby will come out at Sephora on July 29th? Sorry if this has been posted already, it's the first time I'm seeing it and hopefully it'll be better than *you know what*!
It's not letting me post pictures-whyyyy???? Anyway, there is a new eyeshadow palette and the Rose Gold SSP in Liquid Form out! Yay! I really want to compare swatches between the pressed and liquid. The palette is all matte and really pretty, but the last three colors look pretty similar. There's info. and pictures on Temptalia if you want to go see, but the pictures are not uploading...
I'm currently looking for the best waterproof pencil eyeliner for tightlining my upper and lower waterline--I'd like to stay within about a $22 budget. (I do not want to use liquid eyeliners, or eyeliners in a pot.)    My face perspires easily, especially during the summer, so even waterproof eyeliners bleed and smudge underneath my eyes--even when I use Benefit Stay Don't Stray primer below my eyes.   I have tried Urban Decay's 24/7 waterproof eyeliner and Sephora's waterproof eyeliner, and both bled terribly. It does not look professional, and I hate having to constantly wipe off the smudges in the restroom--which is probably not great for the delicate under-eye area.    I am thinking about trying MUFE's Aqua Eyes, or possibly Tarte SmolderEYES. Any other suggestions for around $22 or so?       **There was a best waterproof eyeliner pencil question from 2010, so I thought I would start a newer discussion
