Mac Toledo Collection 2.jpg
I typically am not into Mac, but something about this collection interested me. Perhaps it's the packaging. It's live now on Mac's site and will be in store on the 5th. I picked up a blush- Kindergarten Red. Anyone else get anything?   * grabbed images from various places online.   
Hi all! Just wanted to know everyone's opinion. Do you think bright lips and no eyeliner is ok? What about purple eyeshadow with no eyeliner on brown eyes (But eyeshadow is blended well and looks good).   Oh and I will always apply mascara no matter what.

To all of you ladies who wanted Heat Wave, missed it and don't want to pay an arm and a leg for it, it will be rereleasing in Estee Lauder's Summer 2015 collection!!! I'll update this thread with the release date of the collection as soon as it is available.   EDIT:  Heat Wave will be releasing in March with new circular packaging and the amount of actual product has been reduced. I personally dislike that they reduced the size and changed the packaging. The old packaging is very luxurious and classic Estée Lauder. The new packaging, frankly, looks cheap
do want
IMATS LA 2015 is next month! I will be flying out there for about a week with some ladies from BT. So I want to know... who's going? What vendors are you excited to see? Any products in particular you'll be hunting down?
I have EXTREMELY fair skin with a yellow undertone and I haven't found a good contouring palette I've enjoyed. I'm just wondering if this palette would be good for my skin type and if it's really all it's hyped up to be. 
you guys know i love my NARS. and i am SUPER EXCITED about this release. as they put it: "a study in nudes for eyes, lips and cheeks--daring, baring, anything but neutral". it's all very chic.   it's live on NARS website and their boutiques, but i have  no information on when this will be released elsewhere. if anyone knows, please chime in !   (they've also launched a new foundation, thread on it can be found here: Luminous-Weightless-Foundation/td-p/1858795 )   i'm particularly intrigued by the "reckless" blush. i know it'll be mine. but this looks made for  very  pale skin. i guess this should be called "a study in nudes for very white girls" which is a more than fair criticism and worthy of discussion.   regardless, here are some releases for spring 2015:   lips : a sheer lipstick, liguria (i'm kind of new to the sheer lipstick world and very much wonder how a "nude" lipstick can differ much. i suppose this one looks warmer / oranger than, say pago pago). it's described as a nude caramel. this one is LE. and two lipglosses which are a seashell pink and a sheer silvery highlight color.  Guyane: and Vent Salé (LE)   cheeks blush in reckless. (want. want want want). described as "sheer pink shimmer" i think this is the pinker answer to the apricot Luster.   eyes there is a eye paint in porto venere (a pale pink), a single in valhalla (shimmer shadow in pinky peach) and a duo in st paul de vence (shimmery nectarines; this one is LE).   here is queen tilda in the collection.
I am looking for eyeliner, mascara, and concealer that is super waterproof. Like, it doesn't even rub off when you step in the shower and can only be taken off with waterproof makeup remover. Any suggestions for eyeliner, mascara, or concealer?
I have red scaring from old acne on my cheeks that most of my foundations doesn't cover all that well. Is there any foundation primers out there that are for Oily skin that will help cover up the redness or something?
Hello. I noticed there is a new makeup store in my mall. Its a Kiko Cosmetics. I have never heard of the brand... anyone know anything about them? Anything wonderful there that I should check out?     Thank you
I've been using more face powders lately (finishing powders, mattifying powders, light coverage powders, etc.), and I'm starting to realize that my Sonia Kashuk face brush may not be the best choice for my skin. As soft as it feels on my hand, it seems to be irritating my face regardless of what face powder I use. My skin feels itchy afterwards and gets red -- ugh. I've been looking at face brush reviews, but there just seems to be so many to choose from. Do I really have to buy a NARS Kabuki brush at $55 to get what I need, or are there other soft options?
i saw these on instagram last night and i honestly cannot contain my excitement!  
I just got a YouTube account.  Now that I have one, I can subscribe to different channels. I was wondering who you all would suggest for someone over 40 and makeup challenged. I love makeup but am very challenged with it.
Bad idea... Doing a bright red lip before putting on my white dress. I now have a big red stain on the collar and can't figure How to Make it dissapear! I tried my Make up remover and my Tide-to-go stick but it is still there.   any idea?
Happy Friday-Eve, everyone!  My mom is in her early 60's and we're looking for a new foundation for her.  Her skin is normal to slightly dry, not a lot of wrinkles (thanks, Nana!), and she prefers light to medium coverage.  She does need it to be long-lasting, however, because she has no time for touch-ups at work.  Any suggestions?  TIA!
Marsala Lip Creme.jpg
Hello beautiful ladies and handsome gents! I hope everybody's 2015 will be a wonderful one...sprinkled with gorgeous shades of Marsala.    I was very fortunate to be gifted by Sephora part of the new collection with Pantone and have just received it and had to share. Facets of Marsala Multi-Finish Eye Palette Pure Marsala Matte Lip Creme  so far, I'm impressed with my first experience with the Sephora + Pantone Collection. and will post swatches in different light below..(and on the last page)   Spoiler (Highlight to read) Left to Right, Top to Bottom Autumn Blonde, Burro, Desert Mist, Carob Brown Toasted Nut, Deep Taupe, Butterrum, Bracken Marsala Matte, Marsala Metallic, Macaroon, Russet Marsala Satin, Marsala Glitter, Chutney, Hot Chocolate Shifting Sand, Kelp, Nimbus Cloude, Castor Gray Cocoa Brown, Dusty Olive, Moonlight Blue, Red Mahogany Left to Right, Top to BottomAutumn Blonde, Burro, Desert Mist, Carob BrownToasted Nut, Deep Taupe, Butterrum, BrackenMarsala Matte, Marsala Metallic, Macaroon, RussetMarsala Satin, Marsala Glitter, Chutney, Hot ChocolateShifting Sand, Kelp, Nimbus Cloude, Castor GrayCocoa Brown, Dusty Olive, Moonlight Blue, Red Mahogany       Also, I was watching Cora from Vintage or Tacky and she was showing some Marsala colours from her pre-existing makeup collection and that got me to wondering what I had...and what you have.   I'd love to hear your suggestions of colours that are similar, dupable and/or compliment the new colour of the year.     And swatches...please . I'd love to see this palette on every complexion, whether they are your swatches or from Google...   Thank you Sephora for these wonderful gifts (and brightening an otherwise dreary existence.) Thanks everybody for sharing. Take care..
  I haven't seen anything on the Sephora website, but I've seen a few of these in some stores, so I just want everyone to see.  I picked one up because I love the color red!  Plus side, it feels exactly the same as the pink one!  I haven't tried it yet but I will tomorrow *here's hoping it applies the same*
Alright yall! Time to decide on your top favorite brushes! If you had to choose only five, what would they be? Why do you love them?
I have very dark under eye circles. Is there a product to help me brighten them, and are there any really good concealers to cover them up? I've used NARS radiant creamy concealer, and makeup forever's full cover concealer and they can't quite cover them up. 
I am currently using bare minerals matte powder foundation in medium, along with tarte timeless smoothing primer and tarte bb tinted primer in light. I wanted to switch to the Tarte Amazonian clay full coverage powder foundation, but when I was color IQ'd at my local sephora the color she put on me was way too light. I went back yesterday and swatched almost all the colors but can't decide between the light to medium shades as to which one I should use. I am also concerned about the amount of sparkle I saw in the tarte powder because I like a matte finish.  I have oily, ance prone skin. I am not sure what my color IQ number was, but also a suggestion on the best match for the tarte powder would be appreciated!   OR - Does anyone have any suggestions of a different powder foundation?   Thanks in advance!
I used the Agave one for the first time 2 days ago. Yetserday my lipline broke out in blisters. I thought it was cold sores at first since I am prone to them but nope. All blisters   Anyone else have a reaction to this product? I have never had a problem with any other lip product and this was the only different thing I used.
It just came into stock in the last half hour. They ship internationally if anyone is interested!
Last year, I bought some Mally stuff at Ulta.  I'm not in love with any of it, nor do I really dislike any of it.  It's just ok IMO.  However, did anyone else watch her the other night on QVC or HSN?  She was so obnoxious and it was quite a turn-off.  Every other phrase out of her mouth was "cray cray"!  I actually turned the channel.  What do you guys think of her line of cosmetics?
The Lime Crime thread got me thinking, I don't know a whole lot about the companies I buy from, beyond what I can dig up on my own while reading reviews or looking for swatches. What other companies (let's keep them beauty related only, or we'll be here all year) would you never buy from, and why? Are there any you refused to try for a long time but have since changed your mind on?   Mine are:   1. Lime Crime (totes obvs, right) 2. Sigma -- I genuinely don't care whether they have a good product or not, but if I hear one more YTer say "I'm using Sigma #XX, I'll link it below" I will smack someone. I feel like they have over-saturated the online beauty community with affiliates and hidden sponsorships to the point that I just have no desire whatsoever to try anything from them. Ever. 3. Kat Von D - just don't like her, so I'm not giving her my money. 4. CoastalScents - sort of the same as Sigma, but I did buy several glosses from them a few years ago and the colors and quality were just way sub-par, even if they weren't expensive. 5. Savina - I bought two polishes from a Nordstrom Rack to try out and they were SO AWFUL that I vowed never to buy another one, not even if it looked gorgeous. 6. Enkore - same thing, bought a few eyeshadows and they were so awful I'll never buy anything from him again. I think he even quit producing eyeshadows, so I clearly wasn't alone in my dislike for them. 7. Any and all celebrity-backed perfumes. I think I have one bottle of J.Lo's Glow from back in the day (and it does smell lovely), but again it's that over saturation of the market that turns me off. I feel like I see Britney Spears/Jessica Simpson/Justin Bieber/One Direction fragrances in every single drugstore or discount store I go to.   One I Changed My Mind On: Glamglow! When their stuff first came out, it was SO EXPENSIVE and had so much hype that I was immediately skeptical. I think I tried one foil of the black mask and the flakes inside of it annoyed me to the point of dismissing the brand entirely. When the SeasonSet sample bag arrived, I pulled the Thirstymud sample out and it popped on me! The crimped end of it had blown apart and it was all over my hands.. and it smelled so good.. so I figured, better to smear it on my face and see what was up, rather than wash it down the drain. I'm glad I did; my skin was suuuuuuper soft, like crazy soft, when I washed it off. It also stayed really soft even after I washed with cleanser, and I felt like it was still pretty soft in the morning. I've got a trip coming up to cooler temperatures in the desert soon so I found another foil sample of it in my sample stash and ordered the kit before the VIBR sale ended, to have some on hand.   ETA: I hope no one takes offense to any of this stuff, it's just makeup. I'm positive there will be someone out there who dislikes a brand I like, so no hurt feelings.

Apparently it's a Barneys exclusive, at least for now. The official promo picture looks MUCH nicer than the filtered picture I saw earlier!  
I have stayed away from Tom Ford because I figured once I tried it I would be hooked - which I am!! I have a pretty large makeup collection and I know I can't handle a "no buy" so instead with the new year I want to invest in high quality pieces, not just whatever new makeup comes out. Tom Ford has a rather large collection and items I am already bummed about missing out on (really want the Burnished Amber quad). So my Tom Ford questions are : 1) What Are Your Top Five MUST Have Tom Ford Products? 2) What Quads Are The Best? 3) Which Brushes Are Worth The Money? 4) What Are Your Top Five Tom Ford Lip Products? 5) Any Other Tom Ford Advice, Pictures Of Your Tom Ford Collection And/Or Swatches?!
First things first, I have nothing against MAC and I do use their products (Powder & Concealer) However, whenever I go into a MAC store the employees have a "I KNOW EVERYTHING ABOUT MAKEUP, YOU'RE A MINION WANNA BE AND YOU KNOW NOTHING" kinda vibe. Is it just me? ha ha I know it can't only be me! Please let me know what your In store MAC experiences have been like.
I'm trying to experiment with some new foundations, are there any good ones for oily, acne-prone skin?
