Hi BT! 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 3 August 2- 8: PINK

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!
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 Upcoming Releases: August - 'Bellini' 250-point perk including bright fuschia pink mini Luminous Crème Lipstick, mini Lush Fruit Lip Gloss, and button mirror (LE) September - 'Mimosa' 250-point perk including red mini Luminous Crème Lipstick, mini Lush Fruit Lip Gloss, and button mirror (LE) October - 'Kir Royale' 250-point perk including dark berry mini Luminous Crème Lipstick, mini Lush Fruit Lip Gloss, and button mirror (LE) TBD - Full-size products in the above colors (LE) - not sure if these will be the same or different formulas, and not sure on their release date...

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 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?
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?
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 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
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! I havent had a chance to stop by sephora for a sample but I will one of these days.
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!
As you may now have seen in the Summer/Fall collections threads, ColourPop Cosmetics is releasing next week their new collection of liquid lipsticks and the colors are to die for and just $6 a piece so I decided to create this new thread so we can share swatches for those interested. I'm pretty sure I'm getting a few. Here are the dominiquerldr swatches from IG And this one from lustrelux Also, if these babies do release next week you can use the Kathleenlights code for $5 off As of right now for this summer season I’m interested in: Spoiler (Highlight to read) Lychee Mars Ouiji Bumble Solow Donut Buds Pacific LycheeMarsOuijiBumbleSolowDonutBudsPacific What do you think?
I've seen things where people say they don't wear makeup to impress guys when guys can't tell the difference between black and navy, or Half Baked from Chopper in the Naked line. Things like that. I remember somewhere in the threads someone posted one with two lipsticks, I thought it was the funniest thing. So as a fun little game, fill in the blanks " You think I wear makeup to impress a guy who can't tell the difference between______and_____?"
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!
Hi guys! This is my very first post so please bear with me. I'm currently / always am a 2Y08/2Y09 according to the Color IQ and the only base I've got in my collection is the Laura Mercier Oil-Free TM in Tawny (a perfect match). I was wondering if someone could help me figure out my match for the Koh Gen Do Aqua Foundation (the one with the pump on top of the glass bottle). Thanks in advance!
I'm going to post a picture of me without makeup. Because hey, I love makeup, but I'm also working on embracing my face au naturel, too. None of this "I'm not wearing makeup" when you're wearing a tinted moisturizer, brown mascara, and have a slight flush to your cheeks and lips. I'm talking no makeup AT ALL (No, not even clear lip balm). This is me, about 10 minutes out of the shower. Anyone else brave enough?
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?
I'd love to see the beautiful palettes you all are making. Here's my first one, I'm sure I'll create more if the shadows wear well. L=>R filthy rich, 24k stilettos, famous flirt, it crowd, prenup, room service.
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?
I've just recently found out this brand was a thing, and I am really interested in them. But, while I am a sucker for witchy themed makeup (shocking right?) this brand is pretty steeply priced, so I'm afraid of shelling out for something that might end up being a dust catcher. I didn't find many of the reviews for them, though I tend to not really like reviews unless I'm at least passingly familiar with the reviewer anyway. I signed up for their newsletter and they sent me a nice coupon ($10 off $50+ if memory serves) so I will probably end up going for it but I would love to hear what BT has to say about them! (They sure know how to grab attention though don't they?)
Hi, So, I'm a Genderqueer person. For those who don't know, it means that I don't identify with the regular gender binary (Male and Female), but instead identify as somewhere in between. I heard that this forum was a good place for beauty advice and wasn't too judgemental, so I thought this might be a good place for me to ask some of my questions. I was assigned male at birth (AMAB), and I'm looking for makeup that will help give my face a more androgynous look. I find this particularly difficult for myself, because I keep growing facial hair and my eyebrows are incredibly bushy (I have dark facial and brow hair, btw). I know the simple solution is to shave and get my brows waxed/plucked/threaded, but even though I do shave every single morning, I still have a lot of shadow left behind (Especially on my upper lip). What foundation, and also proper makeup regimen, would be right to help de-masculinize my face, and what proper tools will I need for it? If anyone can give me even a few pointers, I would really appreciate it. Some extra facts about me: -I have a round face. Would this need any altering? -My skin tone is very white with little tan. How can I figure out what shade would be best? -Overall, I have very sensitive skin that's also acne prone. How can I find a good makeup that won't cause at least too many breakouts? Are there any specific brands that are considered to be more safe than others? Thank you in advance for any answers. -I hope this is still a safe space-
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.)
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
