In the spirit of all the other wonderful challenges on BT right now, I'm starting up a nail polish challenge for us.  I have a ridiculous stash and I need to show my polish some love.   With nail polish, once a day would be absurd (of course), so let's try and show off a new look and polish once a week.  I'm personally going with manicures only, but if you'd rather do pedicures or even both go for it!   I'm eager to see your collections and meet other polish junkies.  It's past time for me to commit to using my stash!   Past: Spoiler (Highlight to read) Week 1 - No Theme (ends 1/31/15): Nicole by OPI Gumdrops in Cinna-Man of My Dreams Week 2 (2/1-2/7) - Winter's Last Hurrah: Julep in Fina, Ciate in Snow Fall Week 3 (2/8-2/14) - Valentine's/Anti-Valentine's: Formula X in Starfish, accent Julep in Yuki Week 4 (2/15-2/21) - Mardi Gras and/or Chinese New Year: CoverGirl Outlast Stay Brilliant in Lemon Drop, Julep in Beverly, Wet & Wild Fast Dry in SaGreena the Teenage Witch Week 5 (2/22-2/28) - Textures:  Julep in Lissa, Sally Hansen Xtreme Wear in Sea-ing Stars, unknown shell pieces Week 6 (3/1-3/7) - International Women's Day: LOOK 1 Julep in Bernadette (Black Onyx for February) and Claudia (Peridot for August) LOOK 2 Zoya in India Week 7 (3/8-3/14) - Numbers and/or Sweets for Pi Day!

OMG! Have you all heard about the Too Faced Born This Way Foundation?     It isn't out yet and launching June 15th!  I have watched and seen so many reviews on it with my favorite YouTube Beauty Girls...and it looks so flawless and it just has the best reviews.   I was on the Too Faced website, and the price shows $52.00! Which is very pricey for my budget...but would it be same price on Sephora?   I don't buy from Sephora that often.  Usually just when my foundation runs out, I like to try out different foundations.  Right now I am using the Clinique Stay Matte Foundation.  And like it so far...   Would you all switch your foundation to buy the new Too Faced Born This Way?   Any thoughts or comments?

With all of the various threads dedicated to particular brand releases, I thought it would be fun to have one specifically for new and upcoming BITE Beauty. This thread will be for products and collections separate from the Lip Lab Limited Release collection of this calendar year, which can be found over here: http://community.sephora.com/t5/Lips/Bite-Lip-Lab- Sephora-color-of-the-month/m-p/1847087#M18730   To start things off, I recently came across this image on Instagram, describing a shimmery BITE lipstick topper to be released through Sephora in July (!). Has anyone else heard of this? I did some quick research and tried to gather more information before posting, but I cannot find anything else about it from any other beauty bloggers. Honestly, I can't see the shimmer in this photo, but it's not high quality nor is it a closeup. I also haven't managed to find any product shots yet.

Can someone please tell me a foundation that doesn't make my face look all caky!! I feel like all the ones I try I end up having major cake face! I'm not looking for full coverage, but just a little more than a tint. Please someone help!!

Im going into 8th grade and I'm looking for a new mascara and something for my brows. I have light brown hair and very light blonde eyebrows, and light brown and blonde eyelashes. I want to do something for my brows because it looks like theres nothing there, but I don't want to go overboard since I'm only an 8th grader. Ive also noticed that black mascara looks strange on me because of my hair colors. Some help/suggestions would be appreciated, thank you!

A few photos showed up on my instagram through Beautezine, and apparently there is a Canada-Exclusive lip collection coming out in July for the fall from Bite, let's call it the Maple Collection. It apparently features 5 matte lipsticks with a maple scent, and a Maple Agave Lip Mask. So jealous, I'd love to get my hands on a maple-scented agave lip mask! Here are the photos that Beautezine posted on her instagram:     and swatches:

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! I'm running out of my Dior Hydra with SPF and am looking for something new to try. Lately it's been making my face feel really oily. I tried the Boscia and I hate it. It's so runny. Any other recommendations? I'm 39 and don't wear a ton of makeup but always wear moisturizer.

Getting buzz on YouTube, anyone try it? If it was less than $30 I would have ordered on the spot, looking to find a dupe for my Teint Idole, but turns out they cost the same!    Still kinda interested though...

I'm not sure if anyone knows but MUFE is revamping this formula. im kind of sad, since i do like the original. And its a really good match :/   if you search for thestyleandbeautydoctor she has a review up and theres a chart for the new shades. Mine is  very low so il be waiting  til i run out and the new one is available to try. My shade is 117 which is now Y225. I guess il keep my bottle to compare the color as well.   40 shades anyone else/ thoughts?   I also read on another blog: "Has the formula being changed?"   -As Dany said - they "did not change the formula, but added new ingredients to make it better". *  hyaluronic acid  (to bind moisture to the skin) * amino acid coated pigments (to stabilize pigment) *  mineral mica (to create radiance)

Lately Becca has been coming out with some gorgeous products  and new additions to their permanent line.   Today I have noticed that they have added more Mineralized Blushes to their line and also new Ombre Rouge  Eyeshadow palette  - which are now available at Sephora.   Also they are coming out with the new Champagne Pop highlighter  - colab with JHill.   I personally enjoy Becca's products very much especially their highlighters (Opal, Rose Gold and Blushed Copper ).   What are your thought on the brand? Your favorite products? Recommendations? In other words - Let's Talk everything Becca!!!

So I'm looking to purchase some really 'fun' lipstick colors to add to my collection for the spring and summer seasons. I've been looking at both Melt lipsticks and Lime Crime lipsticks. I was wondering how each of these brands actually perform! I've heard a lot about Lime Crime's fun colors, but not much about the actual formula. Does anyone out there have lipsticks from both brands? If so, do you prefer one formula over the other? Any favorite shades?

I fell in love with the Too Faced (pillow talk) eye shadow. It is in their NAKED EYE PALETTE and it's nearly gone! I guess I used it the most.   I have been trying to find a duplicate or something similar to this and cannot find it. Anyone have any suggestions? It is a matte finish. Any suggestions are welcomed!

Just wanted to let all you Viseart addicts know that ALL of the palettes (including the newest ones — Cool Mattes, Dark Mattes and Editorial Brights) are available online at Musebeauty (google it).   Happy shopping! I ordered Dark Mattes yesterday!

Im kinda excited about this. Out now on nars, and will be available at sephora Feb 1, $48 comes with a pump   I hope to find a shade in this, gobi in the original sheer glow was too light and i think the next shade up was a touch dark   "This new formula creates instant polished perfection with full coverage in a single, weightless drop. Its uniquely fluid, oil-free formula defies the expectations of long-wear foundation, delivering full, natural-looking coverage with unexpectedly weightless, 16-hour wear. Ideal for all skin types and tones in 20 global shades that leave skin at its most beautiful. Yet this formula is also, dermatologist tested. fragrance, paraben, alcohol free. The innovative new formula features a unique Weightless Long-wear Technology that moves with skin, delivering up to 16 hours of wear while always feeling light-as-air and an Even Tone Technology that immediately neutralizes redness, dullness and discoloration to improve skin’s appearance over time."

So I dragged myself down to the post today to get a new box for a TSB and was suprised to find a little box in my locker. I wasn't aware Formula X was sending me anything because normally they contact you before they send you something. Did anyone else get this?

Hey guys!  Next month I'm going to be moving from Hawaii to Georgia.  I have most of the details worked out (shipping my car, flying my kitties, etc) but I'm not sure what to do with my makeup.  I have no idea how long it will take household goods to arrive in Georgia, and I really am scared to pack all of my goodies away.  I'm thinking about shipping most of my makeup to my husband (he leaves two weeks before me) but I can't do that with perfume (I've checked with USPS, UPS, and Fedex).  I'm not even sure if I have the option of packing it with household goods because it's flammable.  I feel like my only option is to take it in checked baggage...but it's so much perfume!  Anyone else ever done a huge move with makeup and perfume?  I'm already starting to go through my makeup and getting rid of anything I don't want, but most of it I do want to keep.  I'm also trying to use up as much as I can of my foundations, hair products, etc.  Any input would be appreciated.  Also, any moving tips?  I'm definitely trying to plan in advance to decrease the stress related, but this is my first big move as an adult.  Thanks!

Everyday a couple hours after I do my makeup, I have these weird black smudges under my eyes (around lower lashline) lately. I have no idea how to get rid of those smudges. I always use one one eyeliner pencil and it was never happended before. Can you please give me a suggestion?

I've always wanted to try wearing foundation, but I don't want to put my money towards something I found out I don't need. What exactly is foundation used for? When should I start wearing it? My skin is clear most of the time, except for the occasional spot on my forehead every once in a while. Usually I would cover that pimple up with concealer, and would just see no use in wearing foundation. Please help!

Hi there!   I am here to discuss, based on users' experiences, what is the best foundation for combo/dry skin. I am a 16-year-old teenager that is getting tired of drugstore foundations. It makes me look cakey, it rubs off easily and never stays on. More importantly, they don't help my skin. Due to hormonal changes, I am unfortunately leaning towards the dry territory. My eyebrows are the worst. I have brown hair, but instead of having brown eyebrows they're white from the constant flakiness around my eyebrows, in my eyebrows and eyelids. This all started once hot weather appeared. Before that, I was just pure dry during the winter. My face would burn or would have a burning sensation from dry skin. It was so bad that you could see the flakiness from miles away (exaggerating, of course). My friends kept telling about it. Way before that, I was nothing but oily. Right now, my face is a bit oily, but it's more on the dry side. As I'm writing this post, my face feels like cement but it has some oiliness going on. Any foundations out there to help my situation? I don't have a budget.
