Weekly Color Challenge! Come Join!
Hi BT!  ** Time to pick our color for next week. Please vote below! A. Bronze B. Pink C. Rose Gold** I've been hijacking threads lately with my various color challenges. It's time for it's own place!    The rules:  Each week (Sunday- Saturday), there will be a new color to incorporate into your makeup looks. It can be one item of that color or a whole face. Try to incorporate it 4-5 times during the week, and post your pic, or discuss your colors here with everyone! If you can only do a day or two, that's fine too! This should be fun!    For folks on a No Buy, it's a great way to shop your collection. I hope you'll join me!    Week 2: July 26- August 1: ORANGE!

Best creaseless concealer?!?
Hey everyone!  I'm on the hunt for a new concealer.. I only need it like maybe like once or twice a week if my under eye area is dark.(either from lack of sleep or crazy hormones, LOL!) So I don't use it every day, but I do like to have it on hand. I am almost out of the Josie Maran Argan creamy concealer crayon and I did like it, but whenever I apply it, it creases in my under eye area and looks terrible!    I did get a sample of the Amazing Cosmetics concealer and I LOVE it. Although it's a little too expensive for my personal liking even though it is amazing. (Hehe)   So I'm looking for something a bit cheaper and that is so close (say dupe?) To the Amazing Cosmetics concealer.  Any suggestions??  Thanks a million!

Q. Can I...
Can I wear red lipstick? I have pale skin, black hair, blue eyes, and a baby face. A friend of mine told me I can't wear red lipstick because it makes me look weird, like a try-hard, ect. But I'm not sure if it's just her who would think that or everyone. Help?

Hourglass Ambient vs Becca Perfector?
  Hello all! So lately I've become obsessed with getting a good deal on a Becca Perfector. I missed out on the mini promo and almost scored a great deal on one on HSN before it was sold out.   I normally shy away from powder highlighters, as I've had a few that look cakey/too glittery. I have pretty decent skin, so I just wear a pore primer and some bb or cc cream. I am waiting for the triple points in a few days to make a purchase, and I have heard great things about the Ambient Lighting Powder (which also has a mini version!) So my question is, does anyone have both, and which do you prefer? Or why did you go with one instead of the other?

Makers of OCC lip tars FINALLY listened!
I searched to see if there was a thread on this, couldn't find one!   So freakin' over the moon about this!  I have refused to buy the lip tars because of the tube and needing a brush to apply...ain't no makeup addict got time for all of that, not this one anyway.   Now it comes like regular lippies.  YAY   Between these and the new milani lippies I'm set for the year!  Oh and the bite lipsticks too.  LOL

Makeup Lovin' Mama...so happy
My baby girl will be 13 soon.  She's been very girly all her life, even as a 3yr old she would tell me her outfits didn't match quite right, then she would go get the clothes she thought looked best...she was always right!  She started doing her own hair at 7yrs old, so she could get it just right.  LOL  She's also an dedicated athlete (she got none of these things from me! LOL)   Sooo we went to Sephora (JCP) yesterday to get her very first eyeliner and mascara!  She goes to Sephora with me all the time, but this is her very first makeup purchase.  We got Benefits they're real mini and sephora matte eyeliner in brown and black.  I'm a NW45/50, she's around a NC35/40 or so.  So the colors that favor me, probably won't favor her. This is going to be so exciting!   I was so excited.  We swatched the KVD lippies (told her we would have to wait on those) and she told me the colors she likes. I've talked to her about how the most expensive item isn't always the best and how drugstore items MAY be better depending on the item and the person.   I've tried to restrain myself and not "force" her into makeup.  I didn't start wearing makeup until I was in my 30s, getting to do this with her is so exciting and FUN!!!   Did you ladies get into makeup with your mothers as young girls?  Or did you find your way on your own.   Did I mention how happy and excited I am?

Born This Way Foundation for Oily Skin
I had been meaning to try the new Too Faced Born this Way Foundation but all the reviews I have read and seen on youtube are from people with dry skin and I have oily skin.   What are your experiences with this foundation and oily skin??   Please let me know!

Color Match
I currently wear Make Up For Ever HD foundation in the shade N178 and I am looking to purchase the Kat Von D Lock It Foundation. Unfortunately, I live in a small town and we do not currently have a sephora here that I can just go into and match my color and it is really hard to match the colors via photos. Is there anyway that you all can tell me my perfect shade? Every time I think I found it, I look at a YouTube video and it throws me off the trail lol. Online, D71 looks correct but in one video it looks too like and online D74 looks a little too dark. I would also like to make a disclaimer that I do not have any pink or yellow undertones.

best eyelash curler for big eyes?
I have very long stick straight eyelashes that lose their curl immediately after I apply mascara after curling them.  Also my eyes are so wide that I can't get all my lashes at once.  Any recommendations for a good curler?  Also my eyelashes are clear, so the mascara I use needs to be as light as possible.

My Precious - Tales of the Long Lasting Lipstick Quest
Hello my Fellow Lipstick Addicts,   I am on a never ending quest for the most Holy of Holys - the Precious of any Purse - THE REAL LONG LASTING LIPSTICK (or Stain).   So many claim to be long lasting but we know they are filled with lies.  Piles of lip stains, balms, sticks, and pencils go unwanted after they have failed the Last test yet their makers continue to mislead us in a belief that their product will last long!  For shame I say - for shame!!!!   If YOU hold the Precious please share its gift with one such as I for I fear I have gone without for far too long.  Please aid me in my quest and if you do hold the secret of the Precious than you shakllk be rewarded!  (ok you will get a Thank You post but that is like a reward)   -Lipsticky in Colorado

Date Makeup
I don't know about you ladies, but I rarely wear makeup on dates. Maybe just mascara (Guerlain Maxi Lash sample). I don't want foundation or lipstick rubbing off... or heck, even sweating off sometimes.  What would you guys wear for a date? My dates are usually brunch, movie and dinner.  (If you're wondering what I do instead, I usually get a sheet mask and prep my skin the day before or day of.)

Everyday false lashes or lash extensions
I wear makeup pretty much everyday of the week but my eye makeup game is pretty weak. I havent worn false lashes in awhile (2 yrs~) i actually have a couple of unopened boxes of lashes and I actually tried them on but the ones I have are the full length/volume kind and they look ridiculous with the minimal eye makeup I'm usually in. Id appreciate any help for natural looking falsies that would go with an almost bare face. And Ive never had extensions and although they look super natural, I don't really know much about the maintenance..yay or nay? help!

Clinique CC Cream or Tarte Face Powder causing itching?
I have been using the combination of Clinique's CC Cream and Tarte's Amazonian Clay Powder for about a year and a half now. One the biggest issues I have found with my face makeup is that one I get hot, or start to sweat, my face starts to itch HORRIBLY. I was wondering if anyone else has had this experience with either or both of these products? I am very happy with their performance otherwise and am looking to switch to something that wont itch to distraction every time I put it on. I live in Florida, so it is hot and humid more often than not.

Looking For New Foundation!!
Hi,   I have been having a hard time finding a foundation and concealer that really fits me. I would like one that leaves my face matte but does not make face look "caked" or dry. I have also been having trouble with foundations leaving my face looking oily. Right now I use a smashbox primer, NARS powder foundation, and sephora concealer. I love my primer its great. I feel like my foundation, for as expensive as it is, could be A LOT better. It leaves my face looking a few shades lighter, it also is supposed to be 12 hour wear but after a few hours my face looks suuuppeerrrr oily. My concealer is okay, I bought it because I tried a sephora brand contouring stick and LOVED it so I figured why not?! right. So I guess I would just like suggestions of other brands maybe that are full coverage and actually mean FULL coverage without making me looked caked or oily. Also suggestions on how to apply the foundation would be great!! I just want to know what everyone else is using to look flawless!! haha
