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'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 7 Aug 30- sept 5: PLUM

Hi, I'm a man who has been playing with makeup and earrings for some time now.  Would love to see pictures of lipstick shades, eye liner patterns and large earrings  - hoops and dangling ones.

Wasnt there a way to choose UPS for shipping? Or am I confusing it for USPS?    I won't go into my issues with Ontrac, everyone's experience is different, some will understand some won't, I'm just looking for a solution to a problem (besides walking into a store to buy then shipping it myself).

I was wondering what the best high coverage drugstore concelar is especially for covering large spots

So I just picked up some of the UD.com exclusive Revolution shades, and I was looking around for a place to post swatches and realized (thanks guzelkiz!) that Urban Decay was not yet represented among the various brand threads. A travesty! So here it is.   The shades I picked up are Protest and Matte Carnal. I was afraid they would be dupes of things, because I apparently tend to buy the same-ish shades of nude/muted colors over and over.   The good news, they're not! Both are close to things I have, but they're not exact dupes, at least in natural light.   Here's Protest, between NARS Audacious Anita on the left, and Raquel on the right, with Jane underneath. It's close, but it's still warmer than Anita and darker than Raquel, so score!     Here's Carnal, between Jeffree Star Celebrity Skin on the left and NARS Audacious Jane on the right. Again, close, but warmer than CS and darker than Jane.     Anybody grab the other UD.com exclusives yet?

Face Q&A
I have been wanting a contour kit for months, but I want one that I can use all or most colors in the palette. I am very pale in the winter but tan in the summer. The two I have been looking at are the Kat Von D and Anastasia Beverly Hills. What are your thoughts, pros or con, suggestions?
Eyes
I'm looking for a palette that I can just use as a basics palette (nude natural colors) to go with my other palettes. Which palette do you think would be best?: Naked Basics 1, Naked Basics 2, Natural Matte Eye Palette by Too Faced, Tartelette Amazonian Clay Matte Eyeshadow Palette, or another palette? (I have dark greyish-blue-ish eyes.)
Makeup
I've been contemplating making an order for some Tarte items, but I haven't used much of the brand aside from the Maracuja Oil, the Lipsurgences, a brush I bought recently and of course, their mascara. I want to try some new products. I have my eye on:   The Tartelette palette, Rainforest After Dark palette, Tarteist Clay Paint liner Amazonian clay full coverage airbrush foundation (powder) Timeless smoothing primer Amazonian clay 12-hour full coverage foundation Amazonian clay BB tinted moisturizer Smooth operator™ Amazonian clay  tinted pressed finishing powder   Phew, that was a lot lol . Does anyone have opinions on these items, or have suggestions for something else to try? Thank you so much in advance!

I'm loving this nail polish from Nails Inc. I used the superfood base coat, Nailkale in Victoria and finished it off with the 45 second top coat.  The color is so rich and easy to apply.

Hi, I'm a man and been experimenting with makeup for quite a while now. I want to wear lipstick in public , but don't want to look freakish, suggestions?

I started looking into the brand and wanted people's thoughts about the products. I've heard a lot about their cc cream with spf 50. They don't have many colors but it's suppose to blend to your perfect skin tone. I like that the make up line also focuses on anti-aging also. The vitality lip flush 4 in 1 looks interesting too.

Hi ladies and gents,        I'm definitely guilty of dwelling on what went wrong rather than focusing on the positives throughout the day. I wanted to create this thread so that hopefully the positivity can spread! I'd love to hear the positive experiences you've had. Beauty related is great , but feel free to post non-beauty related positive things too! Ranting is definitely a healthy coping skill but in moderation.    A beauty related positive thing that happened to me today was that my friend gave me two new MUFE shadows for no special occasion, she just thought they would look perfect on me.   A non-beauty positive thing that happened to me today was while I was in line twenty dollars dropped out of my purse (I didn't notice) and then a random stranger tapped me and gave it back to me. I'm usually very cynical but he could've just taken it and suffer no consequences, so experiences like this helps restore my faith in humanity. What went right for you today?? (:

I already have the Filmstar bronze & glow palette but looking into some of her other products.   Does anyone have any experiences they would like to share esp with her Light Wonder Foundation, her blush and the Airbrush Flawless Finish Powder? I'm interested in getting these three things but still on the fence about taking the plunge!    Please let me know, many BTers opinions have helped me out on products before Thanks in advance!

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. Share some Chanel here The cheek stick…and the neutral nails :-)

So who has tried the color IQ in stores & on-line?  http://www.sephora.com/IQ/color/ I heard people going into multiple stores & getting a different reading each time.  I just tried the on-line tool with a light neutral undertone shade & all my results were medium with pink or yellow undertones. I also don't understand why I only get a few results and then try another foundation and get different product results. Like if I plugged in a tinted moisturizer shade I wouldn't get any powder product results even though that's what I'm looking for.  Maybe if we post our results, they can somehow fix/improve it.  So please... Share your results.

I was just about to make an order for the burberry beauty box and it's out of stock!  I am so sad about it... Is it just temporarily out of stock or it will disappear forever?   Let me cry for a while...

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 just recently saw the commercial for the Sally Hansen Miracle gel polish, and reviews are mixed.  Does anyone use a gel polish w/o a light that they like?  I dont necessarily expect it to last 14 days, heck...my gel mani from the salon that costs me $35 doesnt even last truly that long.  I would however expect a week w/o chips under normal nail duress.  Any thoughts or suggestions?

My favourite Mac Lipglass is in the shade Nico. Mac discontinued this shade numerous years ago and I am looking for something similar. Does anyone know of a lip product in a similar shade? The shade is a lavender purple with some silver in it. It has a pearl shine.   Any suggestions for a good replacement would be appreciated!

Hi, So I recently got a bunch of natural hair brushes to replace most in my Sigma set that weren't picking up my powder makeup that well. That being said, what's the best way to clean them? I've read people like using Dr. Bronners, but are the scented ones okay? I've also heard of people using baby shampoo. Also, what do people do in between washes to spot clean them? For my Sigma set, since they are all synthetic, I just used an rubbing alcohol/dish soap mix I made and spritz it on a tissue and wipe the brushes every time I use them to spot clean. I've also heard you need to condition natural hair brushes. How often would I need to do that and with what? Thanks in advance for the help!

Eyes Q&A
I am in such a fuss right now! I have been unable to find a deep un metallic  black liner! I have tried KVD Tattoo Liner (reflectes isn't matte) , MUG Immortal (transferred in my crease!), Lime Crime Quill liner (same issue as KVD), ABH creme color (tugged on my eyes too much) and nothing is dark enough!   I'm at a loss here since in photos my normal liner looks like a dark grey from the highlights natural lighting.   Also, it'd be nice to have color recommendation other than black to accent my eyes since I'm working with two shades here. They're blue however the yellowish green in my eyes is a decent amount, and often certain bronzes draw my eyes in, rather out.    Helppp!

Alright, wise people of Beauty Talk. I have a lipstick holder and keep all my MAC lipsticks in it. I spend so much time on the morning pulling them out and turning them to read the label and find the one I want. I was complaining to my sister about this morning ritual and I said I was probably just going to store them upside down so the labels are easy to read. She gasped as though I had suggested that I give them all to my daughter to use as crayons and just buy a tube of Chapstick as replacement. She said all of the bullets would break off due to gravity and they'd be ruined!   Is she right? Do you store your precious tubes of coloured happiness upside down or right side up?

I think we can all use something positive today.  So here it is:   For those of you who (like me) fell wildly, madly in love with the Charles Mallory compacts that I posted about, the prices have dropped quite a bit!    I talked about them in this thread and posted pictures:   http://community.sephora.com/t5/Face/Mixing-Loose- Powders/m-p/1853292/highlight/true#M28789   ...but they were way too expensive for me to consider.     Well, now I'm wondering if someone in the company was looking online for comments about the product, and saw our discussion.   I want the peacock one so badly!  It is STILL quite expensive, especially with the exchange rate, but the price drop has me seriously considering ordering it for my birthday.

Hi! I would like to start using a fat colored eyeliner. I typically wear a reasonably bare face (just some Smashbox cc and maybe blush) and want to add a touch of edge to my look. What colors would you recommend for someone with blue's eyes and dark blond hair? When I do use shadow, it is usually MAC embark (a very dark brown), so I'd like to try something outside of the brown realm. Thanks!

I'm just about to throw in the towel and go back to eyelash extensions! For the past few months, my lashes have just been horrible. They won't stay curled, even right after curling them. I've used the blow dryer trick on my curler and I even use waterproof mascara. I wipe the excess of the wand and still, my eyelashes come out flat, thin and clumpy. No mascara I have tried has given my pretty looking lashes.   The ones I've tried are: - Benefit They're Real! - Maybelle Lash Sensational - Benefit Bad Gal - Maybelline Full 'N Soft (this one is the best so far, my my lashes still go flat and look thin) - Covergirl Lash Blast - Maybelline Colossal   Those are just the ones I've tried in the past few months. Any help would be appreciated. I'm going crazy looking at my eyelashes!
