Weekly Color Challenge! Come Join!
Hi BT!  ** Time to pick our color for next week. Please vote below! A. Bronze B. Pink C. Rose Gold** 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 2: July 26- August 1: ORANGE!

Oily skin, liquid foundation
I have fairly oily skin, I don't have much acne, my skin is fairly clear I just get a very oily face and find my face looking greasy after the day is over. I use the Urban Decay Naked Skinliquid foundation and find it very poor for my skin type. What would you recommend for my skin type?

My Precious - Tales of the Long Lasting Lipstick Quest
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

Happy Shopping!

Date Makeup
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.)

Everyday false lashes or lash extensions
I wear makeup pretty much everyday of the week but my eye makeup game is pretty weak. I havent worn false lashes in awhile (2 yrs~) i actually have a couple of unopened boxes of lashes and I actually tried them on but the ones I have are the full length/volume kind and they look ridiculous with the minimal eye makeup I'm usually in. Id appreciate any help for natural looking falsies that would go with an almost bare face. And Ive never had extensions and although they look super natural, I don't really know much about the maintenance..yay or nay? help!

best eyelash curler for big eyes?
I have very long stick straight eyelashes that lose their curl immediately after I apply mascara after curling them.  Also my eyes are so wide that I can't get all my lashes at once.  Any recommendations for a good curler?  Also my eyelashes are clear, so the mascara I use needs to be as light as possible.

I would suggest you try the Sephora Show Curl XL. It's made to suit rounder eyes which some people refer to as big. see post
Clinique CC Cream or Tarte Face Powder causing itching?
I have been using the combination of Clinique's CC Cream and Tarte's Amazonian Clay Powder for about a year and a half now. One the biggest issues I have found with my face makeup is that one I get hot, or start to sweat, my face starts to itch HORRIBLY. I was wondering if anyone else has had this experience with either or both of these products? I am very happy with their performance otherwise and am looking to switch to something that wont itch to distraction every time I put it on. I live in Florida, so it is hot and humid more often than not.

Looking For New Foundation!!
Hi,   I have been having a hard time finding a foundation and concealer that really fits me. I would like one that leaves my face matte but does not make face look "caked" or dry. I have also been having trouble with foundations leaving my face looking oily. Right now I use a smashbox primer, NARS powder foundation, and sephora concealer. I love my primer its great. I feel like my foundation, for as expensive as it is, could be A LOT better. It leaves my face looking a few shades lighter, it also is supposed to be 12 hour wear but after a few hours my face looks suuuppeerrrr oily. My concealer is okay, I bought it because I tried a sephora brand contouring stick and LOVED it so I figured why not?! right. So I guess I would just like suggestions of other brands maybe that are full coverage and actually mean FULL coverage without making me looked caked or oily. Also suggestions on how to apply the foundation would be great!! I just want to know what everyone else is using to look flawless!! haha

In search of Primer and Foundation for dry skin.
Hey there! I have fairly dry skin and I am in search of a primer and foundation that works well together. I currently use Urban Decay Naked Skin, and I am looking for something a little different, I would like a little more coverage but nothing that will make me look too cakey. I went to Sephora last night and got recommended the Makeup Forever Ultra HD foundation, and the Too Faced Hangover X Primer and it just didn't work for me, I found them to be way too thick and not very complimenting on my dry skin. Another thing is I am very pale and have lots of freckles and sometimes get redness throughout the day. If anyone would be able to help me please any suggestions are appreciated.

Upcoming BITE Beauty Releases
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: Sephora-color-of-the-month/m-p/1847087#M18730   Upcoming Releases: July 7 - U.S. Frozen Berries Matte Crème Lipstick Collection and 'Opal' gloss and lipstick toppers launch on (thanks to niki172 for sharing the info on release dates) July 14 (or 16?)  - Canadian Maple Matte Crème Lipstick Collection and Maple Agave Lip Mask launch on (thanks to Mochapj for sharing the info on release dates) July 17 - U.S. Frozen Berries Collection and 'Opal' toppers available in U.S. Sephora stores July 17 - Canadian Maple Collection and Maple Agave Lip Mask available in Canadian Sephora stores   Frozen Berries Matte Crème Lipstick: 398405?skuId=1718691 Opal Matte Crème Lipstick: 398401?skuId=1718733 Opal Crème Lip Gloss: d=1718741            Original post (6 June 2015): Spoiler (Highlight to read) To start things off, I recently came across this image on Instagram, describing a shimmery BITE lipstick topper to be released through Sephora in July (!). Has anyone else heard of this? I did some quick research and tried to gather more information before posting, but I cannot find anything else about it from any other beauty bloggers. 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.   To start things off, I recently came across this image on Instagram, describing a shimmery BITE lipstick topper to be released through Sephora in July (!).

Make up to impress
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_____?"

Foundation matches my face, but too dark for my neck, help!
How do you all blend your foundation into your lighter neck? Mine is MAC Pro Longwear in NW 20 and it's hard to cover the neck with because of its longwear consistency. I tried the shade lighter and looked like a ghost. But I don't love the foundation line- so 8th grade!  I have a bronzer I brush onto my neck, but isn't pigmented enough to do the trick. What are your tricks, HG bronzers, etc for this prob?

Looking for my ideal foundation
Hello, so I'm looking for the perfect foundation for my skin. I have a very oily tzone with some dry spots (which is why I gave up on nars illuminous foundation cus it would stick to my dry spots really bad) and I also would love a foundation with as much coverage as possible as well as a foundation that stays on for hours. Nothing over $50 cus Ima struggling college kid lol. I'm not a fan of mattifying foundations because for some reason they make skin look lifeless & dry. also my skin is a little sensitive & so I avoid any acne treating foundations cus they tend to contain chemicals that only cause me to break out even more

Beautylish/Chikuhodo Sakura LE brush collection feedback
Hey ladies - looking for some feedback. I am in Canada and pre-ordered these brushes, mine are set for the August 30 delivery.   I'm considering cancelling the order though now that I've had some time to think about it. The one and only reason (but a compelling one lol) that I want these is because of the gorgeous handles.   I have tons of quality brushes from Wayne Goss and the Chikuhodo GSN series, plus MAC and Sephora + Hakuhudo. As a matter of fact, I never once considered these to be brushes I would use, just keep as a collection item. From the reviews I've read the quality isn't as good as the GSN series or the Goss brushes.   Also, and this is a big factor - I'm in Canada. With the horrid exchange rate now the total of these brushes came to almost $300!! I'm starting to think there are many other things I could buy - and actually USE for $300.   Any thoughts? For my American friends that have these, if you had to pay $300 for them, would you still think they were worth it? Esp. if you already have tons of better quality brushes?   Thanks!! 
see post
I think at $215 it's quite reasonable and I'd jump on that in a heartbeat, it's the $300 thing that's killing me.  see post
