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. Some great shots of the new collection are on the Fall 2015 Collections thread and I was surprised to see that the new Lip & Cheek Bloom is actually already available at Nordstrom! this fall collection posted on ModelRecommends looks pretty amazing too. that palette! what items have you liked recently from Burberry? Anything you are waiting for or have your eye on?
I am new to highlighters, but really want to try them. Last time I was in Sephora a Becca rep (although she didnt introduce herself as one) tried to sell me on Becca Shimmering Skin Perfecter Powder in Opal, but I didnt think it looked good on my skin tone (it might with full makeup and contouring). It just didnt look like it was a natural highlight or maybe the color didnt look blended. Im not really sure. The color was pretty, but it looked out of place on me. Im not really sure if it was the color, the application she did, or the horrible lighting in Sephora. Do you like this highlighter? Do you have other favorites? How important is skin tone to choosing the right highlighter? I foundation matches are Double wear light in 2.0, MAC Match Master in 1.0 and Fair-Light-Neutral in Tarte Airbrush powder foundation. Dr. Jart Black Label Detox is actually pretty close to my skin tone too - at least it blends really well into my skin.
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!
I have been using the Clinique Redness Line including the Probiotic Anti-Redness Foundation, & switch up here & there to the Tinted Moisturizer (Moisture Surge). Now, I almost bought the MJ #2 brush night before last but took it out of my box, & went and bought a RT brush that was as close to it as possible (& washed my Sephora stippling & UD brushes, lol... wow). The clean brushes are better than before (SUPRISE, right! lol), & the RT is really pretty darn good (still want the MJ#2 though ).... however my foundation still looks blah. Really Blah. My face just looks real dry/ caked up & I just don't like it at all. I look yuck. * I have dry (normal-dry w/out foundation) skin & it is sensitive. I do live in a really humid place, but it hasn't hit yet. * Do you have any suggestions for me please? Feeling ugly over here! I have 1 more question to throw 1 too please: I think the Too Faced Powder ( I sometimes use when in a hurry & want to look like somebody (lol, even myself out, etc.), & the new Milk Chocolate Bronzer could be causing me to break out. Has anyone else had any experience w/ this? I use the Snow Bunny Luminizing Bronzer all the time w/ no problems ( maybe b/c there is no cocoa-cocoa in it?) What are y'all's thoughts on this while I am here asking for help? Thanks in advance as Always!
I'm currently using diorskin nude skin-glowing foundation in the sand (031) shade. I was match with this color during the winter and I love it. But, with summer approaching, I am noticing that the color is starting to look a bit too light for me. What is the next shade up that I should get? Thanks!
Has anyone ordered from Morphe's website? If so, I wanna know how your experience went I recently ordered the Vegan brush set 3 days ago and I have not been given my tracking number. I know the orders take 2-7 days to process, but I just wanna know how long your orders took and how your overall experience was
I'm wearing a red dress with gold and silver beading for prom. I think I am going to do an up-do since my dress is a meshed back. I don't know how i should do my makeup. What color eye shadow should I use? BTW I have pretty oily skin. Thanks!
On a more positive note, did anyone see some of the celebrity looks from the Met Gala? I absolutely loved the theme this year, "China: Through the Looking Glass". Me being the weirdo, I tend to focus on their make-up almost more than their dresses! So what were some of your favorite looks? Some of my favorites were... Jennifer Lawrence (Look at that Glow!) Amal Clooney (So classic!) and Gabrielle Union! (Such a perfect shade of plum!)
I've already decided the Naked 1 palettes colors are too dark for my daily wear. I don't know what will be better for me I like warmer tones but I want somewhat of a variety. I have blonde hair and green eyes
I just got a beautyblender and used it yesterday, once i finished i cleaned it then put it on top of its plastic container to dry and it still has not shrunk back to its former size. It has not shrunk at all! Does any one know why it is like that? or has this happened to any one else?
I got a sample for the shade Perfect Ginger but I feel this is too dark on me, in fact it is now that I'm looking at it. I'm a match perfect for the new Nars foundation Fiji. Would the Praline product be closer to that? I'm supposedly a medium but my skin is a bit lighter than that. I was trying out foundations cause I want like a dewy finish but I have an oily nose and the rest of my face is normal. I was also considering YSL and I believe my shade would be B30. Any recommendations from a BT staff? I have a yellow undertone.
I have a small bald spot in my eyebrow because of a scar I have there and am looking for a product that would fill in my eyebrows and cover the little bald spot (It is rather small btw) Any suggestions? I have been looking at some Anastasia products. Are there any particularly good ones any one has tried? Also if you want to see what I am talking about with the bald spot you can see it clearly in some of the photos I have posted on my profile.
Soooo Yeah this is happening. I like the eyeshadows and I plan on picking up more lippies and liners than I need. I should not be this excited about lipstick. They are only $5 for each lippie and $5 for the matching liner. The liner and lippies have the same name so you can match them easier if you choose to buy them both. I'm not going to get anything for Christmas...I've been nothing but bad (in a very good makeup way).
I was hoping for some advice in finding a well pigmented, golden highlighter for summer. I picked up the MUFE Pro Sculpting Duo in #2 Golden during the VIB sale but found it either doesn't show up or looks a bit ...splotchy? I'm debating exchanging it for NARS Jubilation but the reviews online aren't that great either so I'm open to suggestions! For reference this would be strictly for night time, full face looks which is why I wanted something a bit more pigmented. I'm an NC30 in MAC, Vanilla Glow in Too Faced BB, and Bamboo Beige in Laura Mercier. Thanks!
Hi everyone, I searched everywhere for this answer but can't seem to find one. So please point me in the right direction if this has been asked already! Does anyone know if Sephora will carry the gorgeous shimmery powder in the confetti case (part of the Spring 2015 collection)? I know they are basically sold out everywhere and Sephora is probably my only hope in Canada (I don't think Holt Renfrew or The Bay or Murale carries Givenchy makeup...just the fragrances). If so... might any one have an idea of a release date?
There are the TF, Chanel, etc threads but what about Illamasqua. Us fans of the brand need to work a little harder... I became a fan, sadly, after they left Sephora (bring them back?) but now love them. Getting information is tougher. Today they're on Hautelook, tomorrow they release a new collection. Does it make sense to have a thread…to report on what's worth buying and the best way to get it? Perhaps not…but let's see...
Just an hour after applying mascara, I notice little black flakes all over my under-eye and cheek area. It's especially noticeable because my skin is so fair. I don't wear contacts and I am really careful around my eyes specifically so I don't have little black flakes all over. The mascaras I have tried are: They're Real by Benefit Volum' Express Pumped Up Colossal by Maybelline Can someone suggest a mascara that won't flake all over my face? Or is there something I could be doing wrong that is making this happen?! Thanks
In the summer i'm going to be a attending a lot of festivals and things where I will be outside all day. Where I live it gets pretty hot and humid. What is a good foundation that lasts all day without it making my face feel greasy/sweaty or oily. I have normal skin but it does tend to get a little dry especially around the sides of my nose but over all its pretty normal.
I've heard good things and bad things about the Too Faced chocolate bar palette and I'm just not sure if I should purchase it or not I've gone into Sephora probably four different times and picked it up to buy it and ended up putting it back down before I went to checkout. Should I just buy it? What are your thoughts?
What are your favorite/recommended brushes? I've been debating for awhile now about saving up the money to buy the complete set from Sigma but I just don't know if I love their brushes enough. I have brushes from Mac, Sigma, and Zoeva but I was wondering if anyones found better ones? Or if there's specific must haves you want to mention?
I have seen posts on setting spray usage and I am confused. Do most of you put it on after foundation and before powder? After powder and blush? Do you also spray it to include your eye makeup or not? I worry that getting it near my mascara will make it smudge? I thought I knew what I was doing but now I am completely confused!
I want to try AmorePacific Color Control Cushion Compact Broad Spectrum SPF 50 But not sure It is good product. I tried it once during the VIP rouge event. Does it worth the price and the quality? I need few options on this product. Thank you
