Weekly Color Challenge! Come Join!
  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

Melt Cosmetics Swatches and Dupes
    I decided to do swatches and dupes  of the Melt Cosmetics Lovesick and Dark Matter stacks for those who are contemplating purchasing them. These are the closest dupes I could find in my collection. I hope this helps. (Dupe is on the left, Melt on the right except for Promiscuous which is reversed)     Promiscuous- a violet blue duochrome. Blue comes out over a black base. Dupe: MUG Caitlin Rose. Caitlin Rose doesn't have the blue duochrome, is lighter and has a foiled finish.   Fixated- a matte blue-gray Dupe: LORAC Gray eyeshadow (Mega Pro palette). A few shades lighter and not as blue.   Amelie- a gold-peach duochrome.  Dupe: ABH China Rose. China Rose is a few shades darker and the duochrome isn't as strong.   Lovesick- a matte wine burgundy. Dupes: MUG Bitten and Marsala Matte from the COTY palette. These are a few shades lighter and are less pigmented.   Blurr: a matte light peach Dupe: LORAC Camel (Mega Pro palette). A shade or two darker and leans more yellow.   Unseen: a matte medium brown Dupe: ABH Caramel. Exactly the same as Unseen.   Enigma- a matte rust brown Dupe: Hot Chocolate from the COTY palette. A few shades darker. Not as rusty.   Dark Matter- a matte black. Leans a bit gray. Dupe: ABH Noir- Noir black. My favorite black eyeshadow.

GETTING MAKE UP DONE
I recently made an appointment to get my make up done and I was just wondering if the people that do your make up are certified? And i mean really certified like they are at Mac, i know it is tough to get a job there. I see a lot of mixed answers and just want to be sure. I love the variety at Sephora but do not know much about the ppl that actually work there. I am getting my make up done for my 21st birthday and don't want to be disappointed. THANK YOU!

You do not have to be certified to work at Sephora.  However, the only ones allowed to do the makeovers are the employees that work in "Color" that are certified. see post
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!

Black Up Cosmetics coming to Sephora!
A little birdie (a quite credible one) told me that Black Up Cosmetics will be coming to Sephora in September! I'm pretty excited to have another brand at Sephora. I tried the brand recently on vacation and I really enjoy the powder products. From what I'm told, Sephora will carry the entire line. Haven't heard yet if it's online too, but I know it will be in 18 stores at first. The line primarily has been marketed to Women of Color, however, there are so many products that I see are universal.  Has anyone tried Black Up yet? Any favorites?

Looking for the perfect foundation
I recently paid a visit to my local sephora and got a few sample foundations that I like but would rather try one that other people with more experience recommend. Unfortunately I don't remember my skintone number but one of the sample foundations I liked the most and matched the best was MUFE y365. Has anybody used MUFE in y365 that can recommend a different foundation and in what shade?

how to avoid messy eyeshadow
When I use eyeshadow I always use brown neutral colors. Although, one problem I face is that it just looks like a blob of mess. I don't know if it is because the colors are too similar, or if because i use all matte. is it best to mix up the types of eyeshadows like using a matte and a shimmer? i usually avoid shimmer because i don't like to draw too much attention. i like really natural look.

Urban Decay Thread!
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?

KVD liquid lipstick: hits and misses
I'm wearing Kat Von D Everlasting Liquid Lipstick in Double Dare today and I'm IN LOVE. I'm a liquid lipstick fiend and I think this one might have just trumped Stila's for me, which I didn't think was possible. I want to pick up a few more, but I've heard some of them are really drying/don't work as well as others. Got recommendations or warnings about other KVD colors? I'd love to hear them!

I bought a couple gel shadows, one maybelline and one origins.

Choosing an eyeshadow palette - BECCA
Over my lunch break, I went to my sanctuary (local Sephora store) and tried out the two BECCA eye palettes:  rouge and nude.   I can't decide. I have historically not been confident putting warm tones on my eyes, even though they, in theory, should make my blue eyes pop. Perhaps it is the introvert in me wanting to keep it plain rather than stand out.     The below has the rouge palette on looker's left (technically my right eye) and the nude palette on looker's right (technically my left eye).  What says the wise BT crowd? Is one palette a clear winner?    Who else has had "I can't buy them all, so I must choose", and how did you decide?
