Mac Toledo LE Collection is Live
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.

Blush Challenge!
So, I did the lipstick challenge with Greenchilli and all the ladies in that thread and I thought it might be fun to do the same thing with blush.  I don't have enough blush to get through a month, but I figure I'll go until I have gone through all my blush.   So the challenge is: wear a different blush every day until you run out of blushes or reach 30 days.     Anyone want to join me?   Day 1, 12/28/14, Josie Maran Coconut Watercolor Cheek Gelee in Pink Escape Day 2, 12/29/14, Tarte 12-hr Amazonian Clay Blush in Dollface Day 3, 12/30/14, Tarte 12-hr Amazonian Clay Blush in Natural Beauty Day 4, 12/31/14, Nars Blush in Torrid  Day 5, 1/1/15 (omg first time i've written the new year), Illamasqua in Tremble Day 6, 1/2/15, Tarte 12-hr Amazonian Clay in Irreplaceable Day 7, 1/3/15, Tarte 12-hr Amazonian Clay in Bashful Day 8, 1/4/15, Nyx Rouge Cream Blush in Glow Day 9, 1/5/15, Tarte 12-hr Amazonian Clay in Whimsy Day 10, 1/6/15, Tarte 12-hr Amazonian Clay in Embraced Day 11, 1/7/15, Tarte 12-hr in Blissful Day       1/8/15, no blush for reasons of extreme lateness in the AM  Day 12, 1/9/15, Tarte 12-hr in Fearless Day 13, 1/10/15, Tarte 12-hr in Breathless Day 14, 1/11/15, Tarte 12-hr in Exposed Day 15, 1/12/15, Nyx Rouge Cream Blush in Red Cheeks Day 16, 1/13/15, Tarte cheek stain in Blushing Bride Day 17, 1/14/15, Meteorites Perles de Blush Day 18, 1/15/15, Hourglass Blush in Luminous Flush Day 19, 1/16/15, Stila Convertible in Lilium Day 20, 1/17/15, Too Faced Natural Face Palette - powder blush (no name that I can find) Day 21, 1/18/15, Too Faced Natural Face Palette - cream blush Day 22, 1/19/15, tarte cheek stain in dreamer Day 23, 1/20/15 Smashbox Master Class III in Rosy Day 24, 1/21/15 Smashbox Master Class III in Flush Day 25, 1/22/15 Dior Rosy Glow Day 26, 1/23/15 Smashbox Master Class III in Carnation

Foundation for Older Skin?
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!

Bright lips with no eyeliner

Estee Lauder Heat Wave is coming back!
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

Want to try a new powder foundation/color match issues
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!

NARS SPRING 2015: A STUDY IN NUDES
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: http://community.sephora.com/t5/Face/Nars-All-Day- 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.

Recommendations for inexpensive soft face brush?
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?

The Makeup Show (TMS) NYC 2015
I know everyone love IMATS, but it seems like a huge crowd and I have some anxiety with very large groups...even when there is makeup LOL   I want to go to TMS-NYC in May, but I'm not sure how to go about getting tickets.  The site says you have to have credentials.  I'm just a makeup lover. I can buy tickets, but I have no credentials.   I could probably make up a "business card" but I'm no MUA, and it feels sleazy to lie.   So is anyone been to this show?  Anyone else going?  I've seen YT videos and it seems a bit less crowded than IMATS and it has some of the vendors I would love see.   Crown Brush MUFE &MUFE academy Kevyin A.
