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!

What is the best way to apply Dr. Brandt's Pores No More?   Pat it on certain areas or massage it into the face.   Thanks for your help.

Help! I use a matte primer from Becca, which works great with my makeup for the first half of the day. When I try to retouch my makeup later in the day or even touch my face it get splotchy and comes off so easily. If I apply more product it looks cakey and doesnt blend at all as it would during my initial application. What am I doing wrong here or how can I fix this problem?

Sephora no longer carries my go-to concealer, Korres Quercetin & Oak Antiageing & Antiwrinkle Concealer ITEM 1324573 COLOR 01 Fair - fairest skin with neutral undertones. What do you recommend instead?

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

I just got a beautyblender and used it yesterday, once i finished i cleaned it then put it on top of its plastic container to dry and it still has not shrunk back to its former size. It has not shrunk at all! Does any one know why it is like that? or has this happened to any one else?
Makeup
I have a small bald spot in my eyebrow because of a scar I have there and am looking for a product that would fill in my eyebrows and cover the little bald spot (It is rather small btw) Any suggestions?    I have been looking at some Anastasia products. Are there any particularly good ones any one has tried?     Also if you want to see what I am talking about with the bald spot you can see it clearly in some of the photos I have posted on my profile.

what is the brush you use for highlighter application? I use the RT contour brush but but I wonder if is there anything better for powder application. Thanks!

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.

A few of my friends have started to contour their faces. But what contour palette they use is to advance for me. My question is what is the best contour palette for beginners

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.

I'm in love with this color. Any idea on what it could be? Or what would be a good dupe for it??

Hi guys! I haven't posted in a while. I'm looking for a cream blush with good staying power-in a rosy pinkish shade that's natural and definitely not peachy.  Right now I'm using YSL Creme de Blush in 02 Powdery Rose, but it will expire soon, and I think they discontinued the product.  Any ideas for a good replacement?  Thanks!

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?

Hi everyone, I searched everywhere for this answer but can't seem to find one. So please point me in the right direction if this has been asked already!   Does anyone know if Sephora will carry the gorgeous shimmery powder in the confetti case (part of the Spring 2015 collection)? I know they are basically sold out everywhere and Sephora is probably my only hope in Canada (I don't think Holt Renfrew or The Bay or Murale carries Givenchy makeup...just the fragrances).   If so... might any one have an idea of a release date?

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?  
Face
I know its expensive but i really need help finding the right shade, theirs no store near me that has it for me to try on. I'm a NC15 in the MAC foundation. I've worn MAC for years and really wanna try something different.

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. I'm an NC30 in MAC, Vanilla Glow in Too Faced BB, and Bamboo Beige in Laura Mercier.   Thanks!

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.   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!   Past: Spoiler (Highlight to read) Week 1 - No Theme (ends 1/31/15): Nicole by OPI Gumdrops in Cinna-Man of My Dreams Week 2 (2/1-2/7) - Winter's Last Hurrah: Julep in Fina, Ciate in Snow Fall Week 3 (2/8-2/14) - Valentine's/Anti-Valentine's: Formula X in Starfish, accent Julep in Yuki Week 4 (2/15-2/21) - Mardi Gras and/or Chinese New Year: CoverGirl Outlast Stay Brilliant in Lemon Drop, Julep in Beverly, Wet & Wild Fast Dry in SaGreena the Teenage Witch Week 5 (2/22-2/28) - Textures:  Julep in Lissa, Sally Hansen Xtreme Wear in Sea-ing Stars, unknown shell pieces Week 6 (3/1-3/7) - International Women's Day: LOOK 1 Julep in Bernadette (Black Onyx for February) and Claudia (Peridot for August) LOOK 2 Zoya in India Week 7 (3/8-3/14) - Numbers and/or Sweets for Pi Day!

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?
Eyes
Has anybody bought the bright colored new palette?

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 just picked up a beautyblender and was wondering if anyone had any tips/tricks that they had figured out! Any suggestions would be appreciated!   Thanks.

ok so I always used bare minerals powder but I'm getting older and dryer. I've been using bb or cc creams, or tinted moisturizer but I need something with more coverage to cover age spots/melasma. But also need something in neutral or cool tones as I have no yellow or gold in my skin. Any ideas?  Oh, I recently tried bare minerals serum and was not happy due to gold tone and it settled in lines and actually accentuated them.

I'm looking for a good eye cream one for the morning for under my make-up and one for night time. I'm 26 years old and have fine lines under my eyes which causes my under eye concealer to settle and crease in my fine lines. I would like to get some recommendations for both a morning eye cream and a night eye cream and your thoughts and how it worked for you. It can also be drugstore eye creams just as long as it's good and effective. I can't afford something real expensive.  I'm currently using a neutrogena eye cream but I don't see drastic results. Thanks

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 ;-)

Has anyone ordered from Morphe's website? If so, I wanna know how your experience went I recently ordered the Vegan brush set 3 days ago and I have not been given my tracking number. I know the orders take 2-7 days to process, but I just wanna know how long your orders took and how your overall experience was

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?
