I have all the other stuff but i do lack on eye shadow palettes. I am thinking of giving myself a christmas gift and can anyone suggest which one is great for a beginner to try and learn? - Too Faced Chocolate Bar or UD NAKED 2? My skintone is Medium with yellow undertones (3Y09 in sephora color iq) but I do have darkness on the top part of my eyelids. So I am wondering if i could use some eyeshadow to cover them when I go out?
SO EXCITED!! 11/28/14, they are coming out with 50 LE miniature lipsticks, selling at $32 each. I need them all. A snippet from an article about them: " In the Lips & Boys lineup, there are 10 shade ranges, encompassing nude browns, violets and plums, metallics, reds and light pinks. The high-pigment shades are done in a base of soja seed extract, Brazilian murumuru butter and chamomile flower oil. Thirty-six offerings are new shades; 10 are from Velvet Suede, Ford’s current seasonal color story, and four are from previous seasons. Ford predicted bestsellers will include Tomas, a coral hue; Matthew, a coral pink; Flynn, a light pink; Giacomo, a deep rose, and Patrick, a muted coral pink. Each clutch-size lipstick will retail for $32. The lipsticks can also be packaged in sets of any three hues in the collection."
Beauties, how Audacious have you gotten? I need to get some of these and am going to swatch tomorrow. If you have Audacious lippies, show us what colors you've picked up, and share what other colors you're still lusting after. Just from looking at swatch sheets last month, (on Temptalia I think) I saw about 15 I wanted How about you? Also, hat tip to jemly for inspiring this thread
Sooooofinally jumped on the Z-palette wagon and I'm definitely not regretting it, in part due to the fact I did not shatter a single shadow , I did not like most of the patterns and I found someone on etsy who makes them (PM for the store name) and they are great quality! I depotted: -Smashbox brown eyes -Too Faced Natural at Night & Boudoir Eyes -Naked Two & Three, and Naked Basics -Kat Von Dee Saint & True Love -Mac Nylon & someother one (not a big mac fan) -Sona Kushick brown eyes 10 I feel like I need some more non-naturals in my life now! But it was so easy to pick and choose my eyeshadow today! No searching through so many palettes. So I got a double sided z-palette and then a travel palette that is also double sided. The store I bought from also had two other larger sides but I didn't think I had enough eyeshadows to depot to need ones larger! Let me know your guys opinion and if you have taken to jump over to the z-palettes!
Hi, I hope it is ok to post this here but I have a question about how to spot if something is fake. I am asking because I really want a Guerlain Meteorites shade that was from 2 years ago and one eyeshadow palette I wanted sold out before I could get them and I have seen some on ebay and amazon and I was just wondering if I take a chance what should I look for? (I know buyer beware...but it is for myself and I am wanting the palette and I ran out of my meteorites in the shade I loved for years so if it turns out to be fake then it was my bad luck but I am hoping there are some that are legit....I have googled and looked for any info on signs to look for on the palette but I have not found anything...plus I see that you can get copies from Alibaba already on the palette and I was floored to see how many fake meteorites there were so I am just wanting to make sure they are legit if I can) 1. Guerlain Meteorites....is it true that they are all smooth on the inside of the top of the container? 2. Lorac Mega Pro Palette - Signs to look for? QR codes not working? Alignment off? Are there fakes that are really close to original?
We swatched the Too Faced Semi-Sweet Chocolate Bar Palette to see how the colors looked on different skin tones. What do you think?
Do you have a swatch of this palette? Post a pic in the thread below!

So I'm on the hunt for the perfect everyday mascara! I'm currently using Too Faced Better Than False Lashes and while I absolutely adore it, I'm finding it a bit too much for everyday use and think it's probably better suited for evening/weekend wear. In the past I've used Benefit's BadGal and They're Real, Diorshow Iconic Overcurl, Lancome's Hypnose Drama and Definicils, Diorshow, and a multitude of drug store mascaras. I got a sample of Bobbi Brown's Smoky Eye Mascara with my last order and so far I'm absolutely loving it, but was hoping ya'll could throw some other suggestions my way. I'd like something that is lengthening with maybe some volumizing powers as well.
This morning I checked the sale section and to my surprise there was a nice Bite set with 3 lipsticks. So I went to checkout and guess what... ITEM DOES NOT SHIP TO CANADA... WTF??? Bite is a Canadian Company. So I called the rouge line since I thought it was an IT mistake... and I was told... Oh no this is a holiday set restriction. WHAT????? So apparently this holiday set is only available to the US. Like come on!!!! So again this proves that Sephora HATES Canadians... we can't even buy products that are made in OUR OWN Country!!!! This is the stupidest excuse I have EVER heard! http://www.sephora.com/deconstructed-rose-lipstick -trio-P393240?skuId=1674266&country_switch=ca
i'm looking for a more matte foundation with a medium-full coverage as i have a really oily t zone with acne/scars that i would want to cover. i've had my eye on a few, so please tell me if you've tried them and have a similar skin type! Nars Sheer Matte Foundation Estee Lauder Double Wear Stay-In-Place Foundation Hourglass Immaculate Liquid Powder Foundation and if you had any other suggestions that would be really great! (also open to primer suggestions)
Hi guys, a post on the trade thread by carrierose got me thinking...Ive been collecting (or trying to) the Ud Revolution lipstick minis. I already have the colors in the Full Frontal mini set (twenty percent off, then free with points) and a freebie of Rapture and Naked. I have an extra Rapture and I think carrierose does also. I (we) are looking to trade for another color I don't have. If you got the Silver glitter bag GWP from Ulta, it came with one- thats where I got the Naked. So if you have any other color except Rapture and Naked, I''ll take it. Ebay is way too high to buy freebies when I know there is a possiblility of Bters willing to trade!
Just now posted on Temptalia, this is the NARSissist Dual-Intensity Eyeshadow Palette. It's LE, and it's $79.00. Colors included, as listed by Christine on Temptalia: Europa, Himalia, Ursa Major, Subra, Andromeda, Lysithea, Giove, and Sycorax. Available January 1 from NARS and February 1 from Sephora. There's also the Blush, Contour and Lip Palette for $59.00. It's LE, and a Sephora exclusive! The colors, as listed on Temptalia, are Enrapture, Enthralled, Roman Holiday, and Albatross blushes, Laguna bronzer, and Istria gloss. I love how this palette has two levels!
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?
I am looking for a nude lip gloss that is going to go well with my fair-light skin w/ cool undertones. I have White Russian (Buxom) which I love but I am looking for more of a browny nude than a pinky nude, but not too brown. Make sense? Haha. Thanks.
So I just checked Ebay and there are resellers selling these for $500-$600. One seller listed it at $799.95! Would you buy it? I personally wouldn't, the vault was supposed to be a good deal and at $799.95, you're just paying for the case that comes with it since all the other products aren't even limited edition! I am just shocked to see that people have actually bought these. Would love to hear your thoughts!
It seems like my YT home page has been inundated with reviews of these $5 Colourpop Super Shock cream eye shadows. They actually look quite lovely, but when I see everyone and their mother doing a review for something they were sent on YT, I tend to take those reviews with a heaping grain of salt. Has anyone actually tried these? The price is appealing at least.
Hey guys, I'm new to this whole eyeshadow palette thing but I want one thats like really go to, so I'm having a hard time choosing between the Too faced Chocolate bar or Vice 3? Know they're completely different but I those are my options lol
So I recently purchased the Lancome Teint Idole Ultra 24H foundation in Buff N (210). I initially thought it was going to be too light for me (in color), but surprisingly, it blended really well. I need advice on the best way to apply this foundation. The first time, I didn't use a primer at all since I don't have super oily skin, but more combination, and I know some of these full coverage foundations can really stick to dry patches. I applied it with a damp Beauty Blender. Kept me pretty matte, but the coverage wasn't great at all. The next time I used the Korres Pomegranate Mattifying Treatment primer, my holy grail primer (again applying with a damp Beauty Blender), and I was OILY about 5 hours into the day, which is unusual for me...usually my T-zone gets oily, but not my whole face...it's like my makeup slid right off. I'm thinking of trying it with the Hourglass Mineral Veil primer and a buffing brush rather than the Beauty Blender. If I want GOOD coverage and to STAY matte...would this be a better combo? Or should I forego primer altogether with this particular foundation (again, keeping in mind I have combination skin, so I have propensity for dry patches in the winter)? Oy, the trials and tribulations of full coverage foundation application lol....

IMATS LA 2015 is next month! I will be flying out there for about a week with some ladies from BT. So I want to know... who's going? What vendors are you excited to see? Any products in particular you'll be hunting down?
What are your favorite Tom Ford Makeup products? And what are your experiences with the brand? Makeup brush inputs will help tremendously as well! Do you own any? If you do why do you buy his line? If you don't have any products, what is stopping you from purchasing his line?
