Nail Polish Challenge!
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.  (Thanks to notcreative for the idea and allowing me to get this rolling!)   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!   Week 1 (ends 1/31/15): COMING SOON!

Hey, I am looking for the best matte lippy that is long lasting and does not transfer (if at all possible). I would like it in something comparable to Nars Cruella or Armani Lipmistro 500 (color wise). Thanks

Lipstick for Beginners: Uneven Lips
Okay, so most of the time I'm hesitant about wearing lipstick. I have sort of an uneven mouth/lips, and I've always shied away from bright colors because I didn't want to bring attention to it. Also, BRACES. This is probably more of an insecurity issue than anything, but being more skilled at applying lipstick would probably help... Advice for lip-lining/lipstick application in general?   (Please excuse my crappy webcam photos)

Nars All Day Luminous Weightless Foundation.
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."

Anastasia Beverly Hills liquid lipstick
Seems like liquid matte lipsticks are huge right now and Anastasia is joining the club with a collection of 20 shades, launching Jan 7th on her website and on Macys.com $20 each.   Here are the swatches for your viewing pleasure   I think the colors are gorgeous and there are at least three shades I know I will be buying.     What do you think?       EDIT: I basically stalked Norvina (Anastasia's daughter) because she's been wearing those lippies and testing them for I while and I got you some pictures so you can see how gorgeous these actually look... which might be not a good thing for us.    Pure Hollywood   Potion   Baby pink Vamp  Sad girl   American doll   Lovely   Vintage   Spicy

I'll be sure to post mine tomorrow. 😀💄 if you have more than one picture, please enter it as a spoiler that way the thread isn't too congested.

Clear lip pencil?
What are the benefits of a clear lip pencil? I'm particularly interested in Estee Lauder Double Wear Stay-in-place lip pencil. Would you choose a clear and then be able to wear it with multiple lippies? Or is it better to find a color match? Sorry if this is a dumb question but I want to try to move away from lip gloss and looking at other options Thanks

NARS SPRING 2015: A STUDY IN NUDES
you guys know i love my NARS. and i am SUPER EXCITED about this release. as they put it: "a study in nudes for eyes, lips and cheeks--daring, baring, anything but neutral". it's all very chic.   it's live on NARS website and their boutiques, but i have  no information on when this will be released elsewhere. if anyone knows, please chime in !   (they've also launched a new foundation, thread on it can be found here: http://community.sephora.com/t5/Face/Nars-All-Day- Luminous-Weightless-Foundation/td-p/1858795 )   i'm particularly intrigued by the "reckless" blush. i know it'll be mine. but this looks made for  very  pale skin. i guess this should be called "a study in nudes for very white girls" which is a more than fair criticism and worthy of discussion.   regardless, here are some releases for spring 2015:   lips : a sheer lipstick, liguria (i'm kind of new to the sheer lipstick world and very much wonder how a "nude" lipstick can differ much. i suppose this one looks warmer / oranger than, say pago pago). it's described as a nude caramel. this one is LE. and two lipglosses which are a seashell pink and a sheer silvery highlight color.  Guyane: and Vent Salé (LE)   cheeks blush in reckless. (want. want want want). described as "sheer pink shimmer" i think this is the pinker answer to the apricot Luster.   eyes there is a eye paint in porto venere (a pale pink), a single in valhalla (shimmer shadow in pinky peach) and a duo in st paul de vence (shimmery nectarines; this one is LE).   here is queen tilda in the collection.

Wedding day makeup...
I need some expertise from all you beautiful people!! I am getting married in 34 days, omg the count is on. I still don't know what I'm doing for my wedding makeup.   I have combination skin. I'm currently in Canada where is cold an snowy, but will be getting married in St. Thomas, USVI. I usually just moisturize with Origins Energy-Boosting moisturizer, followed by Stilla one step correct, and Bareminerals original foundation (this I'm starting not to like as i find it applies quite cakey). Or on days where my skin doesn't have many imperfections I only wear tarte BB tinted 12-hour primer with SPF 30.    I'm wanting some ideas so that my pictures look flawless and beautiful, especially in the sun since we are getting married on the beach!

Has anyone experimented with airbrush makeup?
My mom and I keep seeing commercials for it pop up and both of us have gotten really interested in it. The downside is that they seem to be really expensive so buying a set out of the blue wouldn't be convenient without doing some research. Has anyone tried an airbrush kit? Were the results better than normal foundation? Is there a good brand to try? Is it worth the investment? A lot of commercials show the models looking significantly younger, does it really make you look more youthful?
