The Highlight Challenge
Not to generalize, but I think it's fair to say a lot of us on BeautyTalk have a slight obsession when it comes to highlighter. For me, my highlight is the finishing touch before running out the door. Some days I aim for a natural look and other days I want to look like a glistening unicorn and I know I'm not alone. Many of us have a lot of love for each of our highlighters so it's time to show them off!    Now, onto the challenge: From March 13th- April 14th  let's give our highlighters some love each day by sharing details in this thread. I encourage you to get creative and be experimental with your product and technique. There are many highlight formats (liquid, powder, balms, etc.) and you can play around with the intensity of your highlight as well. Share as much or as little as you'd like, including pictures, swatches, products, tools and your favorite tips.    Can't wait to see your lustrous highlight looks!

The HUDA BEAUTY Thread
I thought I would create a thread for HUDA BEAUTY , so we could have a place to discuss news, upcoming collections, and of course post swatches!   I double checked to see if there was a thread for the brand already, and I didn't see one, so here we go!

Kevyn Aucoin Thread
Seeing many more of the products coming into stock on the website!  This is a newer brand to me and I really love the products, everything seems very high quality and wearable for a classic look.  Anyone else out there trying the brand or have been loving for a while?

THE VISEART THREAD
Thought I'd start a thread just for Viseart since so many of us LOVE them.   I love to encourage a small brand as opposed to a brand where you pay for the name.

You're getting only 15.6 grams of product, as opposed to the 24 grams of eyeshadow in the Viseart palette. That's a loss of over 8 grams of product.   FINAL ANALYSIS: It would cost $119 USD for MAC to duplicate the Viseart palette (24 grams of MAC eyeshadow at $4.62 per gram and $8 for the palette).

anyWould anyone be interested in joining a new/lightly used item TSB? Requirement of 500 hearts.
Spoiler (Highlight to read) Guidelines: Trade items that are equal in value and brand quality or better. For example, Dior for Guerlain would be a good trade, as would Too Faced for Tarte. Do not trade Dior for Tarte. Do not take more than you put in. Please ensure your trade is adding value to the box. Trade full sized items for full sized items. Do not take all of one category from the box. For example, do not take all the palettes or masks. If you’re not sure if an item is appropriate, post the item and ask the group. Allowed in the box:  Mid to high end products (think brands sold at Sephora, The Bay, Nordstrom, etc). Anything that is sealed (as long as it fits with the other guidelines) Skin care items in tubes & bottles. Jars only allowed if it's sealed or unopened. Keep non-beauty related items to a minimum (please do not overload the box with makeup bags, cases, etc). Packaging & Shipping All participants must provide a tracking number for their shipment, posted to the thread upon receipt. Package things carefully (bubble wrap or tissue paper if possible) and put things in labeled Ziploc bags. Try to leave the TSB in better condition than you found it Items that are more fragile (like perfume bottles) should be bubble wrapped individually Shipping should be within 3 days of receiving the box!! Calculating Values: New items: full price Clearance items: full original price unless they are long-term residents of the clearance section (i.e. OCC lip tars in original packaging) Used 1x or swatched: 90% value (original price x 0.90) Lightly used: 80% value (original price x 0.80)  This applies when an item was used more than once but at least 90% of the product is remaining. In other words, the item hasn't been used more than 3 times. Deluxe samples: calculate based off largest size available of said product. For example, if a deluxe sample is 0.5oz, and the full size is 2 oz and worth $60, then the deluxe sample is worth $15.  These must be new, untested, unswatched. Courtesies: Don't put in anything unsanitary! (any product that you “dunk” a wand into or you dip your fingers into (like lip gloss or mousse blush) if they’re not new and unused. These cannot be sanitized. Same thing goes for rollerballs. Post a picture and write info of what you took and left, with their condition and value – this way members can weigh in on the trades before shipping Include close up, open photos of any items that will be sealed that you cannot see the color through. This includes lipsticks, palettes, blushes, etc. No reserving items in the box for others and don’t ask to have any items reserved for you - this is unfair to others participating Don't swatch items from the box even they are swatched or used!! Swatched/used items must be labeled as such. All opened items must be cleaned/sanitized prior to their addition to the box Sanitizing consists of spraying the item with a makeup sanitizer, or making your own with half parts 70% alcohol and water. Try not to put in LARGE full sized items, like large bottles over 8 oz. This box becomes very full, making it is harder for the person repacking and forces them to take something they may not want or use. Exceptions can be made if someone really wants the item Must post photos of all swaps and wait for approval from the thread before sending the box to the next recipient. The box coordinator and 50% of participants should give the OK for your trade. Give the group 24 hours to review your trades and provide feedback.  Please contribute mid to high-end beauty products only. No drugstore items or Sephora brand. If you have questions or you are unsure of an item, ask! ***If an item in the box has been damaged in transit, please contact me as to what to do with it. And , as always, remember not to trade used items for new ones.   Thanks!   (adapted from "TSB Best Practices For the BT Community".  http://community.sephora.com/t5/Makeup/TSB-Best-Pr actices-for-the-BT-Community/m-p/2001133#M59515) Guidelines:Trade items that are equal in value and brand quality or better.

Do not swatch items in the TSB. I saw many items that were swatched in the last box that didn't start out "swatched" or "used". 2. If an item is swatched, put "swatched" with the stickies notes I included in the box. If the items has been used (UP TO 3 TIMES ONLY), then put used and then the number of times. 3. If the box gets lost while you are sending it to the next person (for whatever reason), you will either pay a $50 deposit (to the organizer of the box)  to replace the items or you will have to put enough samples/deluxe items to make up for the box. If you are not ok with this rule, then please refrain from joining the box. 5. DO NOT INCLUDE ANY LOW END MAKE UP/ SKIN CARE (No Sephora or Ulta brand deluxe or sample!) This is a high/mid end box unless it is an Asian or Indie brand that someone wants. 4. Ship the box within 3 days to the next person. If you can't, post a message here on the board right away. 5. Post pics of your trade and wait until at least half of the group has agreed on your trade. 6. The box is based on trust so don't steal from it. It is meant to be a fun experience for everyone. 7. Have fun!   1. Alexmarya 2 . Kariyava 3. Kelloua 4. Jazachai 5. Alexasteph 6. Pinyo 7. YoiFran 8. Petisweetmom 9. Imlostagain 10. CC3616 11.

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.

❤️Becca thread
I have seen lots of new threads pop up devoted to specific brands and thought I would get some other opinions and ideas about the best of becca.     I just in the last year have really fallen in love with this brand. We newest favs are backlight priming filter and blush in flowerchild. I feel like shimmering skin perfector is a must have for every makeup lover. I love using the backlight targeted colour corrector on my dark under eye circles.   I have though about trying foundation anyone have any suggestions?what are your favorites?

Foundation for dry patchy skin?
So my skin is an issue I am slowly but surely trying to figure out. I know about exfoliating, moisturizing, face oils and serums.. I even use UD chill setting spray instead of powder.. But we won't get into that right now!   I am looking for a foundation for dry skin that doesn't accentuate dry patches and is a medium buildable coverage.   I have tried Makeup forever HD invisible cover, Marc Jacobs genius gel, and IT cosmetics your skin but better and nothing is working. IT cosmetics is the best so far but it makes my skin feel SO greasy..   Any suggestions on your luck with hydrating foundations?

TIPS FOR STRAIGHT ASIAN LASHES
Hey y'all!! I have stick straight Asian lashes that get weighed down by almost everything. I've tried a ton (almost all) of the rumoured mascaras and curlers on the market, and I'd like to share what I've found, and also learn some new things! Keep in mind that everyone is different and what worked for me might not work for others, and vice versa. Key tips: waterproof>all, small>large wand, and really work hard to pump your curler and make a strong curl beforehand.   Mascara What works: Benefit they're real! is great; holds a curl, volumizes and separates. Shu Uemura petal lash mascara! The Shu one holds a curl, rarely smudges, and looks beautiful. This is my current favourite. Shiseido nourishing base is a fantastic primer that holds a curl all day underneath almost any mascara. UD canonball mascara also holds a curl but it doesn't do much else... there isn't a lot of volumizing and it flakes onto my cheeks a bit.  Too faced better than sex mascara waterproof is perfect in every way: curling, volumizing, clump-free, but it smudges onto my undereyes after just a couple of hours. If it didn't do that then my hunt would be over As for drugstore mascaras, I actually really like the Maybelline falsies waterproof and L'Oreal mascaras (million lashes, and the one in the big gold geometric tube). What doesn't work:  YSL faux cils babydoll waterproof, Benefit roller lash (I KNOW... but this did absolutely nothing for my lashes and kept them straight. I tried using it every way possible before tossing it), Tarte purple tube, Lancome hypnose, Lancome cils booster XL primer, toofaced better than sex, buxom lash mascara, blinc mascara (held my curl but did nothing else), and Clinique high impact. As for drugstore mascaras, the Maybelline lash sensational weighs my lashes down still and makes them straight. Curlers I have the weirdest eyes on Earth and I've tried: Shu Uemura, Shiseido, Lancome, Tarte, Sephora XL, Tweezerman, Surratt and Revlon. The Shiseido one I really like but the Tweezerman Promaster curler is my new favourite. If you also have trouble finding a lash curler that fits your eye shape, try that one out. The Shu Uemura one is the curviest so it didn't work well for me. The Surratt beauty one is very heavy and well-made and has the flattest curve out of all of these curlers. If you need a flatter curler, try that one out. I returned it though because it somehow tore out some of my lashes on the first usage   What I Haven't Tried I have just a few more mascaras to try before I give up on the perfect one. The Diorshow overcurl waterproof, Lancome definicils waterproof, Shu Uemura natural lash, and Tarte lifted. After my current tubes are out, I'll give these a try and hope for the best.   Feel free to reply with your experiences and make recommendations. I hope I helped   edit: this post gained more attention than I thought I would so I thought I'd add some more information.   Application Tips: We've all heard of the technique where you wiggle the wand into your roots and go up, but to hold a curl it also helps to rotate the brush as you apply the formula. Also, halfway through your swipe you can try holding the wand in the middle of your lashes up to hold that curling position, then after a couple of seconds finish swiping up. This helps a lot of the time even with a good, dry formula.   Removing Mascara; The biggest drawback to waterproof mascara is that it's a pain to remove. Overtime, your lashes could also fall out or not grow properly. The key is using a  cleansing oil or balm in a 2 step cleansing system. I love the Shu Uemura one, and the Clinique cleansing balm. Asian brands also sell cult favourites like the Clean it Zero by Banila & Co. You have to really take your time to gently massage the oil/balm all over your face and especially onto your eyes to melt everything away. After a good couple of minutes of working the product onto my lashes, I don't need any other remover to help me out. I know this because I've tried... I used a Q tip with the Lancome makeup remover to go over my lashline and nothing came off after the 2 step cleansing system.   I used to soak a cotton pad with makeup remover and really work it into my eyes but I lost too many lashes from that.

Too Faced Frustrations
*Warning*: Moderate - Heavy Venting   So I placed an order from TooFaced's website last week (exactly 1 week ago) during their sale. It's been 7 days, and my order still hasn't shipped out. Other ladies on BT have noted their orders during that sale shipped out either the next day or the day after.   I'm concerned because I'll be leaving the country in about 10 days to attend a wedding, and at this rate the package might not even get delivered to me before I leave.    At first I thought, no big deal, I will just message them and see what's up. So I sent an email yesterday via their web interface. No response.    I still feel good at this point - I just thought they are an established company...I'll just give them a call! This morning, I look up their customer service number (855-866-32233, which is 855-TOO-FACED). On their website, its says their CS is open from 8 - 4:30 PST. So I call at 8 AM PST. Got a voicemail saying their hrs are actually 8:30 - 4:30 PST. So I call at 8:30, then 8:45, then at 9:00, then at 9:10. Each time sent to voicemail.    Out of desperation, I post on their facebook timeline, so far, no response.    I even signed up for twitter! And tweeted Jerrod Blandino (the co-founder of Too Faced)! Of course I get that he's busy and I don't expect him to respond because obviously he's not a customer service rep..it's just WHERE IS their customer service?!!!   It shouldn't be this hard to reach a company after having paid for an order. And an order should not still be sitting at the warehouse after 7 full days! I run a small business myself and always make sure to ship orders the next business day... I can't believe Too Faced can delay shipping it out for a week and not even respond when the customer proactively contacts them.    Makes me appreciate Sephora's spot-on shipping, and responsive customer service so much more!!    Too Faced, seriously, WHAT is up? This is not the way to treat your customers.

Sneak Peek at Brand New rms beauty
I got the chance to test it out a new rms beauty product launching  very soon so, of course, I wanted to share a sneak peek. rms is launching a new Sephora exclusive cream highlight called Champagne Rosé Luminizer! It’s a soft, dewy highlight that is very subtle on my fair skin so for me this is great for days I want a natural, lit from within glow. There’s a gorgeous pink sheen which really pops on medium and deep skintones. Crazy how different highlight appears on different skin tones! That's my hand at the top and my co-worker, Marisa's, at the bottom.   In the top photos, Marisa and I are wearing the rms alone. I'd describe this as a natural highlight on me and, for Marisa, it's a bright pop of pink. Given the dewy formula, I also wanted to layer and see if this intensified powder highlighters and the effect and was brilliant! In the photos below, we layered Becca's Prosecco Pop on top for an extra glowy look. I wish this did our golden, glowy cheekbones justice!   Back to the rms highlight! This is great for all skintypes and skintones. It's hypoallergenic, noncomedogenic and doesn't contain parabens or fragrance. I know it's coming very soon, within the next week so keep an eye out

Let's talk about Surratt!
I was looking for a general brand thread but it seems we don't have one. I blindly ordered the blush in Grisaille (to qualify for a promo), with such low expectations that I actually screamed "Oh. My. God!!!" as I was putting it on this morning. The texture of that blush is almost like a cream-to-powder, and super soft, like an angel's behind. The price is a little hard to swallow for something so little, and I wish the pan was magnetic instead of stick-on, but I still think I'll be picking up a few more colors because the formula is divine.    What about you—what are your favorite Surratt items?

Okay I am at a loss.. My mascara ALWAYS gets under the outer corners of my lower lash line... I use powder to set concealer.. and water proof mascara... And trust me I know how crazy this is about to sound but bear with me... I was so tired of looking like a insane person with black under eyes.. so I stopped putting it on my lower lashes....
