GUCCI BEUATY IS HERE!!!
After two years of rumors, Gucci finally released some promos of their makeup line that is set to launch this September. The quad is going to be 65 and the base makeup is going to be between 49 and 69. I LOVE the packaging (as I knew I would) and cant wait to try the line. Needless to say - I WANT ALL OF IT.

Did I just receive a USED product from Sephora?!
  omg..so I just received and opened my package ..and im mortified by what I see.. I got the urban decay smoked palette and it looks used or swatched..notice Kinky the lightest color has bristle strokes across..then evidence, loaded and asphalt all look like they have finger swatches..how can this be? Lol was someone doing their makeup at the warehouse or what.. I'm attaching pics so maybe someone can confirm what I fear..and no I have not even touched a single shadow ..I'm super super disappointed since this item is oos permanently and not available in Canada. Ugh to eyeshadow fails in one week...(got a bad batch of the ardency inn pigment: royal = patchy, stiff, dry). Sorry for the quality my hands were shaking in rage lol..

Bite Lip Lab Limiteds: What colors are you hoping for?
Hi you Bite fanatics! So we already have a discussion on the released colors here: http://community.sephora.com/t5/Makeup/Bite-Lip-La b-Sephora-color-of-the-month/td-p/1847087 but I wanted us to have a place to discuss what colors we were hoping would be released. For instance, what color would put you over the edge to make a purchase? For me, I would really love to see a sheer black.... or something similar to Givenchy Liv's Lips, or Lipstick Queen's Hello Sailor. I think that would be pretty amazing!! Especially if it's a Bite formula. Basically, I won't buy colors that are very common or easily dupe-able. Also, as a sidenote, it'd be really cool if people who went to the Bite Lip Lab could somehow figure out what the color formula is for the limited releases... It would look something like this, I guess: Formula: Creme Deluxe Scent: ? Flavor:? Colors: 2/3 Scarlet, 1/3 Tannin (just an example)

Skincare and makeup giveaway:
Depending where you are, not many have come across this.  I will be announcing the winner on Friday and I'll be shipping it out on the next Friday, the 27th.  This will be a brand new product, so don't worry about it being used.     The product is:     And here is what has to be said about it. With Aloe, Herbs, Minerals & Hyaluronic Acid Refresh Skin & Set Makeup Spray Away Presperation Moisturize Skin & Hair in Dry Weather Use as a Sensative-Skin Tonic Natural extract of roses makes this Facial Spray very refreshing and stimulating. Helps moisturizers and night creams have better effects in making skin look better with makeup or "setting" makeup; you'll find dozens of other uses. For male and female athletes, this mist is a great refresher and cleansing aid. Also note, it is 8 0Z. This is one of my favorite products and I love the rosy scent.    This is only for people living in the US.  The question is:   What is my favorite Quentin Tarantino movie, and favorite character?   First one to guess it wins. Yes, it could possibly be a little impossible, but it's all in good fun, and you get a free new product if you win! Here's a hint: The character is not going to be someone who came out for only 10 seconds of the movie. So you don't have to worry about that. The character is a main actor/actress.    You will also be getting my favorite powder and some matching blotting paper:     You can only guess one movie and the corresponding character. If no one can guess, I will make an announcement to guess again, if no one has checked up yet, I will just choose whoever got part of the question right. If you need any clarification, don't be afraid to ask me in this thread or even PM me, which would be best. Good luck, guys.    To clarify, whoever guesses the right answer first wins, but won't be announced til Friday.            Let us begin.

ColourPop Blushes...they're coming!
Saw on IG colourpop is coming out with a new line of blushes in a couple of weeks.  They are twice the amount of the shadows so the price has increased (bummer).   I guess we'll see them popping up with IGers in a few days.  They don't seem to have a large presence on YT, unless I'm missing something.  The vloggers I follow very rarely state they had products sent to them.  Maybe I'm just not in the know.   I really wish they would do a liquid matte lippie!   I can't wait!  I love a good blush!

Best foundation for me?
Hi everyone, so I was wondering if someone could help me find the best foundation for me. I have very dry skin yet its also very oily. I also have acne and lots of acne scaring. When I wear a foundation or BB cream my skin always ends up peeling underneath of the foundation no matter how much moisturizer I use. I also want it to cover up my scars and blemishes but not be too thick. I really want to find a foundation that will cover everything I want it to, not crack up, wear all day, and not look caked. Thanks!

Goodbye Cruel World: The Discontinued Thread
WHAT? WHY? WHYYYYYYYYYYY?   The five stages of grief for a discontinued product:   1. Denial: "What? Maybe they just moved it off the display to make room for the new items. Can you search the back again?"   2. Anger: "WHY the heck would they do this? This is .... this will not stand! I'm .... AHHHH!"   3. Bargaining: "Can you just check the stock to see if you have any left? Ebay, yeah, I'll try that!!!! If you bring it back, I promise to repurchase regularly!"   4. Depression: "I really wanted that. Now it's gone. It's gone and it's too late. I ... what's the point of even going to Sephora now?"   5. Acceptance: "Ok, Google, give me a dupe for my discontinued holy grail."     We all have this happen to us- whether it be the discontinuation of our absolute favorite product, or the cessation of selling a product you were always planning on buying but never got a chance too...   Here is where we can support each other after the products we want are discontinued.

Benefit Rollerlash Before & After
I started playing with yesterday's haul and had to stop and take pictures of this. I like to call this photo series:   Benefit Rollerlash: The Hype Is Real!   I had eyeshadow on one eye and after one coat of mascara I took it off, because you guys had to see this! (That's why my eye is a little red. Also, I have a cold and am wearing no other make-up, so I look a little scary!)   These are all: Nothing on my right eye (screen left), Rollerlash on the left eye, no primer, no lash curler. Note, I have hard to curl lashes, so this is a greater feat than I can even explain.   1 coat, top only:   2 coats, top only:     (Still 2 coats, top, but closer up - see the curl???)   2 coats top, 1 coat bottom:   It's only been half an hour, but the curl hasn't dropped at all. I'm snowed in and not going anywhere so I'm going to leave it as is, and I'll update at the end of the day and let you know if it lasts.   So far I'm impressed!

Ill post pictures and swatches for now, but i want to use the items before giving you guys my true thoughts and opinions. So keep looking out for new posts! I can say right away that the shadows and blushes swatch beautifully and the art sticks are insanely highly pigmented.

I was given: Hot Nudes Eye Palette Cheek Palette in PINK 3 Art Sticks in - Hot Pink, Hot Berry, Hot Orange I also purchased the Calypso Cheek palette when i found out i was being sent these...it should be here in a few days. I will also post pictures of this.. Enjoy the pictures guys. Its a Gorgeous collection...again im so excited and greatful for this.

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.

Sunscreen in fondation or applied seperately?
Last summer I had to have some basal cell cancer removed. Now I understand how important sunscreen is. My question, for your face, is it better to have  a foundation with sunscreen in it or to apply a separate sunscreen and foundation ? I have very dry skin so I don't know if that matters or not when it comes to which method is best. I have currently been using the IT Cosmetics CC cream foundation but that seems to irritate my rosacea.

Something stinks, but why?
Last year I purchased a Bobbi Brown Hollywood palette at cosmetics store in an outlet mall. Once I pulled it out, I realized that it stunk. Really. Not a rancid stink, but more of a "I am super made out of petrochemicals" stink. FWIW, I noticed that unlike another BB pallete I have and love (Desert colors), this one was made in China. Do you think that shadows/etc made in China tend to have an unpleasant odor? Also, I can't help but wonder if it was a counterfeit. Thoughts?
