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!

A lot of the other big beauty brands have their own threads now, so I thought, why not NARS?   Let's share news about new collections, feedback on products, etc here.

I already have the Filmstar bronze & glow palette but looking into some of her other products.   Does anyone have any experiences they would like to share esp with her Light Wonder Foundation, her blush and the Airbrush Flawless Finish Powder? I'm interested in getting these three things but still on the fence about taking the plunge!    Please let me know, many BTers opinions have helped me out on products before Thanks in advance!

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.

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)  
  ***I will also be hosting an OPEN FRAGRANCE TSB in May (unless someone else wants to host one sooner)***   Starting February 22nd ! This fragrance TSB is to share favorite scents and rehome ones that just didn't agree with us from HE and niche/indie brands.   If for some reason I can't weigh in on a trade or this TSB is out while I'm traveling in April and some sort of decision is needed then my co-host Libellules will step in!

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?
I live in Canada but will be visiting US soon. Any suggestions for items I can order to be sent to US that would not normally be available in Canada. I am for sure getting the Lancome stick foundation but anything else that anyone can recommend?
Makeup and Skincare Inventory 2016.jpg
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

I try to not do this too often, but I definitely bought the Tarte Rainforest After Dark Palette for the packaging. What have you bought exclusively or mostly for the packaging? I can't be the only one.
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

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?
Hello Sephora Family!!!   I am new to the makeup scene, and don't know what I should have in a makeup kit.   I already purchased a concealer that a friendly associate at Sephora suggested and it really covered my acne scars/spots. Now, I really want to purchase some more makeup.   So, what else should I include in a makeup kit, other than concealer? Any suggestions are greatly appreciated. Thank you very much. 
Products to Use Up in 2016.jpg
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. I tried to pick one thing for each category and two for skincare since I have so many skincare products.   Here are the products I want to use up in 2016: Spoiler (Highlight to read) 1. SKINCARE: Clarins HydraQuench Cream for Normal to Dry Skin  (refer to line) 2. HANDS: AHA Hand Creme with Evening Primrose  (refer to line) 3.

  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.   what items have you liked recently from Burberry? Anything you are waiting for or have your eye on?   edit: replacing fall 2015 pictures with spring 2016

Ok, so I've thought long and hard on posting these.  I am at the point where I do not want to have a large amount of beauty products. I want to be able to enjoy and use the makeup I have.  This is my 3rd declutter within 3 months.  This really put a lot into perspective and shows me how wasteful I had been with purchases.  There are still a few things I should let go of but I'm not ready yet.  So far I'm happier since 3 months ago with my beauty items.   Anyone else cleaning out and reorganizing their stash?   Spoiler (Highlight to read) I know this still looks like a nightmare, my nail polish was so out of control that it took over my crafting area. However, I now have 31 bottles of polish to give away and 18 bottles to throw out Spoiler (Highlight to read) Blushes and random stuff Spoiler (Highlight to read) Eyeshadows Spoiler (Highlight to read) Most of these will be given away Spoiler (Highlight to read) 9/14/15 UPDATE: More stuffs to get rid of, bye bye.

Hi BTers, do we have a thread for this? I'm on the Tom Ford Updates thread and I thought some of us might also want to share on Chanel. Eagerly awaiting the Chanel Mediterranee Summer 2015 and of course what's new for Les Beiges this summer. Share some pics, news, what are your 'must haves' for Chanel releases coming up? I'm really interested in this nail color and seriously debating about the bronzer. I'm trying to decide what road to go down for bronzer, the new Estee Lauder illuminating gelee, or the new Guerlain Terracotta powders, or this beauty... As far as the date, I've been talking to my Chanel SA and the collection seems to be coming out later than they thought. I think I saw somewhere it would be May. Share some Chanel here The cheek stick…and the neutral nails :-)
Hello! I use Sephora's brand liquid makeup remover (the blue one) and I find I am scrubbing to get the makeup off! Do you have a recommendations? I cant use first aid beauty I had a reaction with their cleansers. And anything with reasonable cost would be great! Thank you! Candice
I am 1Y03 and I was wondering what my closest match is in the Kat Von D Lock It foundation? Thank you1
does spear offer makeup? and if so, how much?
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!!

Did anyone else see this product? Tarte has their Friends & Family sale, which means 30% off on their site right now, so of course I went there and browsed the site to see what I could grab. I noticed the Big Blush Book and was so intrigued, so I added it to my cart, because it was $50 originally & $35 with the discount. 8 full size Amazonian clay blushes, count me in! So I added it to my cart and was going to go back to it in a few minutes to add my payment info, only to notice that it was already out of stock! Did anyone else even notice this product?
