Very oily and need foundation/bb cream help.
Help!  I have tried pretty much all foundations recommended for oily skin and they still slide off of my face.  I would prefer a more natural, matte look anyway, rather than the heavy coverage some of those foundations provide.  Does anyone have really oily, acne prone skin and manage to get a natural, matte look, maybe with a bb cream or something?

Best Red?
So i just got Ruby Woo in the mail! YAYYY!! I have been wearing Heatwave for a while, which i will sometimes change out with catfight. What is your favorite true red? Or the one that you think sticks around and doesn't feather the best? I think my next purchase may be Lady Danger.

New Marc Jacobs Highliner Colors
Who else is a fan of Marc Jacobs highliners? They just released 10 new colors. I'm really excited for In the Buff, which Sephora seems to be sold out of already. I thought it would be great to start a post where people can share their looks that they've created with these beauties. I'm mainly curious on how to pull these off, especially the bright colors ;-)

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!

Bare Minerals Complexion Rescue - shade
Hi,   I got Complexion Rescue in Natural 05, and right now it's perfect for my skin shade...It just blends into my skin and I feel like I am wearing nothing. I don't know if that's because the shades aren't not too heavy or because it actually matches the color of my skin. However, in a month or so, I will start to have a tan and i will definitely look much darker than now (I tan pretty easily), will i need to get a drake shade like tan 07, or is it way too dark than natural 05? if yes, what shade do you recommend? Or do you think that Natural 05 will do just fine even when i am tanned?

Favorite Met Gala Looks!
On a more positive note, did anyone see some of the celebrity looks from the Met Gala? I absolutely loved the theme this year, "China: Through the Looking Glass". Me being the weirdo, I tend to focus on their make-up almost more than their dresses! So what were some of your favorite looks? Some of my favorites were... Jennifer Lawrence (Look at that Glow!) Amal Clooney (So classic!) and Gabrielle Union! (Such a perfect shade of plum!)

Burberry Beauty Updates
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?

Looking for a good substitute!
I love MAKE UP FOR EVER Face and Body Liquid as a light coverage foundation in the summer, but I am so pale that I can only wear it later in the summer when my face is tanned. Does anyone have a suggestion for a similar type of foundation that comes in paler colours for the next few months? My skin is normal-to-dry, but sensitive to anything comedogenic (which in my case, includes BB creams, CC creams, and tinted moisturizers -- anything that wants to soak into my skin is not my friend). I wear 115 Ivory in their HD Invisible Cover Foundation, and my winter Color IQ is 1R03.   Thanks in advance!

Looking for a good lipstick/stain
I've got fair skin (right now I have a little bit of a tan for the first time in almost a decade!), and I'm trying to find a good everyday lipstick. My sister's friend recommended a cantaloupey-coral color, or I'm wondering if a red lip would be too much for every day. What do you think?

I think what your "everyday" looks like might determine whether or not a red lip is "too much". But I work at a school, and I wear a red lip almost every day. :)  see post
Foundation Help
I'm attending my husbands ball in June and I need help with a foundation.   the ball is in the middle of the summer in the desert. It'll need to last like 6-7 hours and look good in photos. I'm currently shade 0 in Bobbi Brown and W-1-2 in loreal. I can also wear I'm pure for sure in benefit. I have the issue of all those foundations becoming an oily mess after 2-3 hours. I have quite a few discoloraed marks from breakouts too. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

For the Naked 2 Experts!!
I'm been searching long and far for a substitution for the one shade I have run out of in my naked 2 palette,  Booty Call (shimmering cork).  Of course, UD does not sell it separately.  Has anyone found a substitution for this eyeshadow? Thanks!!

Best liquid liner anyone?
Sooooo I've been looking for a liquid eye liner, and I'm new to liners and have never worn it before. (my eye makeup is usually mascara and eye shadow) I am only interested in liquid liners as I feel like they glide on more smoothly without all the tugging and pulling on the eye lid. I was interested in the Kat Van D tattoo liner, or one from Stila that is a water proof liquid liner. ( Cant remember the exact name) I would prefer it to be in an under $20 or so range, and would like recommendations by this Tuesday(the 5th of May) as its my birthday and I will be heading to Sephora then. I really am looking for a long lasting all day black smudge proof, (water proof, etc) liquid liner. ~~ Thanks so much for any suggestions or opinions on letting me know which is personally your favorite. <3

Givenchy Photo'Perfexion Fluid Foundation SPF 20 help
I got a sample for the shade Perfect Ginger but I feel this is too dark on me, in fact it is  now that I'm looking at it. I'm a match perfect for the new Nars foundation Fiji. Would the Praline product be closer to that? I'm supposedly a medium but my skin is a bit lighter than that. I was trying out foundations cause I want like a dewy finish but I have an oily nose and the rest of my face is normal. I was also considering YSL and I believe my shade would be B30. Any recommendations from a BT staff? I have a yellow undertone.

Soooo   Yeah this is happening.  I like the eyeshadows and I plan on picking up more lippies and liners than I need.  I should not be this excited about lipstick.   They are only $5 for each lippie and $5 for the matching liner.  The liner and lippies have the same name so you can match them easier if you choose to buy them both.   I'm not going to get anything for Christmas...I've been nothing but bad (in a very good makeup way).

White shadow base?
Hi everyone,    I am looking for a white eyeshadow base to make the true colors of my eyeshadow pop a bit more. Right now I have been all about the matte colors in my Tartelette palette, but I find I need to use a packing brush to use quite a bit of color to make the colors vibrant, and I have a medium beige skintone. I love how it looks, but I wonder if I use a white base will it be better. Right now I just use UD original primer potion. I was considering the NYX white eyeshadow base or using the NYX jumbo white pencil. Anyone have suggestions?

Golden Highlighter
I was hoping for some advice in finding a well pigmented, golden highlighter for summer. I picked up the MUFE Pro Sculpting Duo in #2 Golden during the VIB sale but found it either doesn't show up or looks a bit ...splotchy?   I'm debating exchanging it for NARS Jubilation but the reviews online aren't that great either so I'm open to suggestions!   For reference this would be strictly for night time, full face looks which is why I wanted something a bit more pigmented.
