Tom Ford Updates
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!

PAT McGRATH LABS
Since the brand is coming to Sephora (US ONLY) I thought I'd start a thread just for the brand for news and info.  Maybe if this launch goes well more products will be added and hopefully Canada will get it too!  I really want these!!!! The golden is to die for!   Skin Fetish 003 - Sign up for emails. This product will be available for sale to VIB and VIB Rouge clients on May 2 .

THE TARTE THREAD!!!
NEWS, UPCOMING COLLECTIONS, DISCUSSIONS AND SWATCHES!   I was surprised there wasn't a dedicated thread for the brand especially since they have really upped their game recently. So since pretty much every brand has a thread I thought to start one for Tarte!   They have been slaying with the recent launches and truly on a roll with more amazing products to come! I picked up the LE rainforest of the sea eyeshadow palette and I am really enjoying their new eyeshadow formula - you need this one!    Coming very soon to Sephora April 5th TBA :     Tarteist blush palette LE  clay pot eyeshadow liners in cobalt, white, mint and rose gold

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. The eye shadow quality can't be beat! ************************************************** ******* Saw this on Facebook a while back and thought I'd add it here.   A 12 color Viseart Eyeshadow Palette is $80 USD (before pro discount). Each eyeshadow pan is 2 grams and valued at approx. $6 ($3.00 per gram).   MAC has reduced the price of their single eyeshadows refills from $10 USD to $6 USD each. So 12 colors at the new reduced price would be $72 USD (before pro discount). Add the $8 USD empty palette to store them and we're back to $80 USD.   EXCEPT: Each MAC eyeshadow pan is only 1.3 grams ($4.62 per gram). 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).   ************************************************** ******* NEW PRODUCTS Theory palettes - Cashmere, Minx, Chroma (6 pan) Ribbons Boheme 02 (12 pan) ~ Now at Muse Beauty (new lower shipping rate for Canada! Yay!!!) ~ Theory palettes & Ribbons LIVE in the US (no news for Canada)     More releases coming up this year! Will post when I have more info     Updated: April 25 2016

The Japanese Beauty/Brush Enthusiasts Thread
I'm sure I'm not the only fan of Japanese beauty products/makeup/brushes/aesthetic on BT.  I like to keep up on upcoming  Japanese beauty for my own personal purchasing, but since we don't have a thread for this, I thought I'd start one.   Feel free to contribute whatever Japanese beauty or brushes float your boat.  Some of my personal favorites are Addiction by Ayako, Three, and Les Merveilleuses de Laduree (I know, not exactly ' Japanese ' but they release a lot of their LE products there)  But, I'm sure we have some fans of Jill Stuart, Suqqu, RMK, Chicca, Elegance, all the different Shiseido sub brands, and more, so let's share the love!   Upcoming Collections: Three - 'Let the Happiness In' Summer 2016 - May 11 Addiction by Ayako - 'Never Ending Summer' - April 1/May 6

Makeup Brand Equivalency
Hey folks! I've been talking about doing this for a while and finally decided to just get it started! I would love it if as a community we could decide on brand equivelancies and have kind of a master list to refer to for trades and TSB's. (Keeping in mind that LE/Unicorns etc are not accounted for here.) I want to start with this and eventually make a skincare brand list as well. I will post 3-5 brands every day and I want you guys to tell me what your thoughts are and where it would fit in these categories: 1. Drugstore A [run of the mill] (ex: Revlon, L'Oreal' Wet n Wild, Ulta) 2. Drugstore B [more desirable] (ex: NYX, Catrice, Sephora) 3. Low-end (ex: theBalm) 4. Mid-Range (ex: Clinique, Besame) 5. High End (ex: Bobbi Brown, Burberry) 6. Superstar (ex: CHANEL, Tom Ford)   Spreadsheet: Spoiler (Highlight to read) https://docs.google.com/spreadsheets/d/1-xO9Y6Ot-v FZZvyZ6v8a7PYEpetFVs5kGDnPf5sN1bY/edit?usp=sharing https://docs.google.com/spreadsheets/d/1-xO9Y6Ot-v FZZvyZ6v8a7PYEpetFVs5kGDnPf5sN1bY/edit?usp=sharing Please post your thoughts in a comment under the brand comment I make. Remember, we are only judging based on the makeup so if a brand also has skincare or perfume or something else entirely good for them but it's not relevant right now! :-)   You will have one week to weigh in on a brand before I add it to the spreadsheet.

TOM FORD BEAUTY - Coming Soon To Sephora - Discussion & Product Reviews
In light of the upcoming launch of Tom Ford Beauty at Sephora, I was selected as one of the lucky recipients of a very generous gift from Sephora and Tom Ford Beauty. I would like to dedicate a thread to the luxury beauty brand and it's impending Soleil 2016 launch.     I’ve dabbled in a fair bit of Tom Ford makeup and I’m definitely a fan, but I’ve tried surprisingly little from their summer collections, so I’m very much looking forward to testing these out.  Thank you so much to both Sephora and Tom Ford Beauty for such a lovely gift!   Please feel free to share about any products you've tried and loved, cherished or can’t live without, or even the ones you’ve disliked, hated or given away.   This is an information sharing thread so all opinions are welcome!   Mustique (left) Cala di Volpe (right)   Swatches:   Comparisons: Spoiler (Highlight to read) TF Blushes (Lovelust, Ravish, Afternooner, Flush) TF Highlights (Top photo: Moodlight top, Afternooner, Moodlight bottom / Bottom photo: Softcore, Afternooner, Stroked) Bronzer swatches (Guerlain Terracotta Terre D'ete, Afternooner, UD Paranoid, CT Bronze & Glow Dark) TF lipsticks (Henry, Cala di Volpe, Gustavo, Guillermo) TF lipsticks (Spanish Pink, Mustique, Indian Rose, Casablanca) TF Blushes (Lovelust, Ravish, Afternooner, Flush)TF Highlights (Top photo: Moodlight top, Afternooner, Moodlight bottom / Bottom photo: Softcore, Afternooner, Stroked)Bronzer swatches (Guerlain Terracotta Terre D'ete, Afternooner, UD Paranoid, CT Bronze & Glow Dark)TF lipsticks (Henry, Cala di Volpe, Gustavo, Guillermo)TF lipsticks (Spanish Pink, Mustique, Indian Rose, Casablanca)

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?

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?

Burberry Beauty Updates
  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?

Drugstore dupes for High end products
I want to start anew, I tried looking for recent threads and I couldn't find any.   Show us your finds.    I believe I found a Guerlain Maxi lash dupe in Almay brand. Here are the pictures and wand comparison. I also applied it to my lashes and my lashes look the same as when I appl y Guerlain (sample I had). My lashes look long and full after one application, as well as natural. Also, they are SOFT, just like with Guerlain. I'll post pictures of my eye in a bit.      Spoiler (Highlight to read)       even though the almay looks more full, it does the same thing guerlain did for me. I definitely say give this one a try unless you can't live without the rosy smell guerlain has        even though the almay looks more full, it does the same thing guerlain did for me.

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

Foundation Help Please?
Looking for a foundation that can last 8+ hours, that's full coverage. Something that can cover up blemishes and redness with less than 2 pumps and survive 90+ degree weather with a dewy/natural finish. I'm currently using Too Faced Born This Way Foundation, but I don't know why it doesn't seem to be doing as much for my overall look. I've got dry, sensitive skin, and lately when I pair it with my Too Faced Hangover Primer it gets both flaky/cakey.

Drugstore TSB
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 - at least two other members -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.

Do we seriously not have a thread dedicated to all things Giorgio Armani?
I ran across a gorgeous GA product today and realized, we don't have a thread dedicated to all things Giorgio Armani! Well we do now. GA is far too popular a brand not to have it's own, devoted domain.    Here's the thread's official muse...  The unique shade combo is what caught my eye (as well as the inlay, obvs.), then the swatches sealed the deal for me.   Originally released as a LE eye "palette" (Organica Palette Yeux) in Fall 2014, it appears to be permanent, or at least re-released, and available on GA's website. It sure is priced as if it's LE - $88US.

Chanel Updates
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.
