Come Join Me For 28 (or so) Days of Red!
Ladies, in the spirit of February being the dead of winter, let's bring some extra warmth to BT.   I've noticed many ladies mention over the past few months that they lack the confidence or comfort level to rock a red lip. In that vein, I've decided to do a red lip a day for the next 28 days (or until I run out).   Please feel free to pop in and join me by posting a pic of your red lippie, even if you don't want to don a red every day.  And who knows, you might even find your next great red this way!   Day 1: BITE Beauty Luminous Creme in Poppy                 Day 2: Shiseido Lacquer Rouge 417 Sanguine (I did not consider that I would need reds to complement a developing tan...oops!)                   Day 3: BITE Beauty Matte Lip Crayon Maraschino               Day 4: Hourglass Opaque Rouge Icon (for my trip I only packed minis, so pretty much all GWP               Day 5: Stila Stay All Day Liquid Lipstick Beso                     Day 6: BITE Beauty High Pigment Pencil Pomegranate                    Day 7: BITE Beauty Luminous Creme Scarlet             Day 8: Dior Rouge Dior 999             Day 9: BITE Beauty High Pigment Pencil Meritage and NYX Butter Gloss Cherry Pie (Meritage was described as a brick red, but even with the red gloss it still looks really pink to me)           Day 10: NARS Hardwire (LE) Deadly Catch                     Day 11: Clinique Chubby Stick Mightiest Maraschino     Day 12: Urban Decay Revolution FBomb                 Day 13: NARS Velvet Matte Lip Pencil Cruella               Day 14: MUFE Artist Rouge N45               Day 15: Benefit Silky Finish Lipstick Frenched                   Day 16: Buxom Provocateur                 Day 17: BITE Beauty for Sephora VIB Rouge                 Day 18: OCC Liptar Matte Harlot                    Day 19: Guerlain KissKiss Shaping Cream 325                     Day 20: OCC Stained Gloss Jealous               Day 21: NARS Audacious Olivia                 Day 22: NYX Butter Gloss Red Velvet                 Day 23: NARS Audacious Lana               Day 24: OCC Metallic Liptar Role Play                Day 25: NARS Audacious Bette                    Day 26: OCC Matte Liptar NSFW                 Day 27: NARS Audacious Leslie (not photographing true to color, it is a more rusty red IRL, but I waited too late to photo, and now the good daylight is gone)             Day 28: OCC Metallic Manhunter liptar

Nail Polish Challenge!
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 1 - No Theme (ends 1/31/15): Nicole by OPI Gumdrops in Cinna-Man of My DreamsWeek 2 (2/1-2/7) - Winter's Last Hurrah: Julep in Fina, Ciate in Snow FallWeek 3 (2/8-2/14) - Valentine's/Anti-Valentine's: Formula X in Starfish, accent Julep in YukiWeek 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   Current:   Week 5 (2/22-2/28) - Textures Textured polishes, pearls, mattes, sequins, anything that adds something different to the usual smooth manicure!   Future OPTIONAL Themes: Spoiler (Highlight to read) Week 6 (3/1-3/7) - International Women's Day (actually 3/8, but this way your nails are done for the occasion!) Create a mani inspired by a woman you admire.  Friend, family, famous, even fictional - whatever inspires you.  Then share how you chose the look! Week 7 (3/8-3/14) - Numbers and/or Sweets for Pi Day! (3/14) I couldn't resist including this.  Pi(e) Day is a great way for math and pie lovers to unite.  Feature numbers, equations, desserts, or anything inspired by your sweet tooth for this week.

In the market for a new mascara
I have been using UD's Perversion. I loved it for awhile. But it seems like it is not consistent. My lashes seem awesome one day but meh the next. And it has some clumpy days too. Those days seem to be increasing.  I'd like to buy something new. I'm not sure what direction to go in. I'm leaning towards the Diorshow. But even then I'm not sure which one I want.  Any recommendations? Thanks!!

Did I just receive a USED product from Sephora?!
  omg..so I just received and opened my package ..and im mortified by what I see.. I got the urban decay smoked palette and it looks used or swatched..notice Kinky the lightest color has bristle strokes across..then evidence, loaded and asphalt all look like they have finger swatches..how can this be? Lol was someone doing their makeup at the warehouse or what.. I'm attaching pics so maybe someone can confirm what I fear..and no I have not even touched a single shadow ..I'm super super disappointed since this item is oos permanently and not available in Canada.

Tom Ford Lips & Boys
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."

No luck finding a foundation that matches my pale skin tone! Please help!
Hey guys, I hope you can help me out with this! The scenario: I have extremely extremely pale skin. I have tried Sephora's Aerosol Foundation in Cream, Make Up for Ever Velvet Matte in Alabaster, Tarte's Amazonian Clay Foundation in Fair-Light Honey and Josie Maran's Powder Compact in 01- Fair/Light but everything has been too dark for me and it's getting quite frustrating to not have found a perfect match yet! I have even tested out some of suggestions listed under the ColourIQ, and low and behold, they are still too dark and/or orangey For all those with a similar issue, what foundation do you guys use and why?

Goodbye Cruel World: The Discontinued Thread
WHAT? WHY? WHYYYYYYYYYYY?   The five stages of grief for a discontinued product:   1. Denial: "What? Maybe they just moved it off the display to make room for the new items. Can you search the back again?"   2. Anger: "WHY the heck would they do this? This is .... this will not stand! I'm .... AHHHH!"   3. Bargaining: "Can you just check the stock to see if you have any left? Ebay, yeah, I'll try that!!!! If you bring it back, I promise to repurchase regularly!"   4. Depression: "I really wanted that. Now it's gone. It's gone and it's too late. I ... what's the point of even going to Sephora now?"   5. Acceptance: "Ok, Google, give me a dupe for my discontinued holy grail."     We all have this happen to us- whether it be the discontinuation of our absolute favorite product, or the cessation of selling a product you were always planning on buying but never got a chance too...   Here is where we can support each other after the products we want are discontinued.

BOBBI BROWN HOT NUDES COLLECTION
*****UPDATED***** FEB 12/2015 Bobbi Browns new HOT NUDES COLLECTION. Firstly i would like to start off by saying thank you to Sephora for sending me this collection as gratis. I am extremely greatful to them and Bobbi Brown.  I just received these in the mail and i couldnt wait to share with my fellow BT'ers.... Ill post pictures and swatches for now, but i want to use the items before giving you guys my true thoughts and opinions. So keep looking out for new posts! I can say right away that the shadows and blushes swatch beautifully and the art sticks are insanely highly pigmented. The packaging is stunning as with all other Bobbi Brown products, but i will say they are smaller than expected. I was given: Hot Nudes Eye Palette Cheek Palette in PINK 3 Art Sticks in - Hot Pink, Hot Berry, Hot Orange I also purchased the Calypso Cheek palette when i found out i was being sent these...it should be here in a few days. I will also post pictures of this.. Enjoy the pictures guys. Its a Gorgeous collection...again im so excited and greatful for this. ART STICKS Left to Right: Hot Pink, Hot Orange, Hot Berry    Cheek Palette: PINK Left to Right: Pale Pink Blush, Pink Highlight, Powder Pink Blush   Cheek Palette: CALYPSO (PURCHASED MYSELF) Left to Right: Pretty Coral, Calypso, Coral Sugar   Hot Nudes Eye Palette Left to Right: Ivory, Smoke, Peach Sugar, Cement, Nude Petal, Bronzed Beige, Nude Glow, Blackest Brown

NARS SPRING 2015: A STUDY IN NUDES
you guys know i love my NARS. and i am SUPER EXCITED about this release. as they put it: "a study in nudes for eyes, lips and cheeks--daring, baring, anything but neutral". it's all very chic.   it's live on NARS website and their boutiques, but i have  no information on when this will be released elsewhere. if anyone knows, please chime in !   (they've also launched a new foundation, thread on it can be found here: http://community.sephora.com/t5/Face/Nars-All-Day- Luminous-Weightless-Foundation/td-p/1858795 )   i'm particularly intrigued by the "reckless" blush. i know it'll be mine. but this looks made for  very  pale skin. i guess this should be called "a study in nudes for very white girls" which is a more than fair criticism and worthy of discussion.   regardless, here are some releases for spring 2015:   lips : a sheer lipstick, liguria (i'm kind of new to the sheer lipstick world and very much wonder how a "nude" lipstick can differ much. i suppose this one looks warmer / oranger than, say pago pago). it's described as a nude caramel. this one is LE. and two lipglosses which are a seashell pink and a sheer silvery highlight color.  Guyane: and Vent Salé (LE)   cheeks blush in reckless. (want. want want want). described as "sheer pink shimmer" i think this is the pinker answer to the apricot Luster.   eyes there is a eye paint in porto venere (a pale pink), a single in valhalla (shimmer shadow in pinky peach) and a duo in st paul de vence (shimmery nectarines; this one is LE).   here is queen tilda in the collection.

Skincare and makeup giveaway:
Depending where you are, not many have come across this.  I will be announcing the winner on Friday and I'll be shipping it out on the next Friday, the 27th.  This will be a brand new product, so don't worry about it being used.     The product is:     And here is what has to be said about it. With Aloe, Herbs, Minerals & Hyaluronic Acid Refresh Skin & Set Makeup Spray Away Presperation Moisturize Skin & Hair in Dry Weather Use as a Sensative-Skin Tonic Natural extract of roses makes this Facial Spray very refreshing and stimulating. Helps moisturizers and night creams have better effects in making skin look better with makeup or "setting" makeup; you'll find dozens of other uses. For male and female athletes, this mist is a great refresher and cleansing aid. Also note, it is 8 0Z. This is one of my favorite products and I love the rosy scent.    This is only for people living in the US.  The question is:   What is my favorite Quentin Tarantino movie, and favorite character?   First one to guess it wins. Yes, it could possibly be a little impossible, but it's all in good fun, and you get a free new product if you win! Here's a hint: The character is not going to be someone who came out for only 10 seconds of the movie. So you don't have to worry about that. The character is a main actor/actress.    You will also be getting my favorite powder and some matching blotting paper:     You can only guess one movie and the corresponding character. If no one can guess, I will make an announcement to guess again, if no one has checked up yet, I will just choose whoever got part of the question right. If you need any clarification, don't be afraid to ask me in this thread or even PM me, which would be best. Good luck, guys.    To clarify, whoever guesses the right answer first wins, but won't be announced til Friday.            Let us begin.

Benefit Rollerlash Before & After
I started playing with yesterday's haul and had to stop and take pictures of this. I like to call this photo series:   Benefit Rollerlash: The Hype Is Real!   I had eyeshadow on one eye and after one coat of mascara I took it off, because you guys had to see this! (That's why my eye is a little red. Also, I have a cold and am wearing no other make-up, so I look a little scary!)   These are all: Nothing on my right eye (screen left), Rollerlash on the left eye, no primer, no lash curler. Note, I have hard to curl lashes, so this is a greater feat than I can even explain.   1 coat, top only:   2 coats, top only:     (Still 2 coats, top, but closer up - see the curl???)   2 coats top, 1 coat bottom:   It's only been half an hour, but the curl hasn't dropped at all. I'm snowed in and not going anywhere so I'm going to leave it as is, and I'll update at the end of the day and let you know if it lasts.   So far I'm impressed!

A Good Undereye Setting Powder Rec?
Hello everyone! Hope everyone's having a gorgeous day!   I need some good recommendations for an undereye setting powder and maybe a new concealer recommendation while I'm at it. My major concern is having the concealer look natural and having it not settle into fine lines. Here's some info about me:   -I'm a 2y09 with the IQ system here (so I'm kind of a coppery/tanned tone irl) -I have dry/normal skin with no blemishes anywhere besides the eye -Genetic dark circles that are a ***** to cover -I have seasonal allergies (Spring/Fall mostly) -Right now I use MUFE HD Concealer in 12 -I use LM Tinted Moisturizer in Tawny   I heard a lot of people recommend the Anastasia contour palette but I don't want to buy a whole palette if I'm going to use one color, you know? But I also have to do what I have to do so if it's highly recommended I'll bite the bullet.   Thank you for your help!

Bite Lip Lab Limiteds: What colors are you hoping for?
Hi you Bite fanatics! So we already have a discussion on the released colors here: http://community.sephora.com/t5/Makeup/Bite-Lip-La b-Sephora-color-of-the-month/td-p/1847087 but I wanted us to have a place to discuss what colors we were hoping would be released. For instance, what color would put you over the edge to make a purchase? For me, I would really love to see a sheer black.... or something similar to Givenchy Liv's Lips, or Lipstick Queen's Hello Sailor. I think that would be pretty amazing!! Especially if it's a Bite formula. Basically, I won't buy colors that are very common or easily dupe-able. Also, as a sidenote, it'd be really cool if people who went to the Bite Lip Lab could somehow figure out what the color formula is for the limited releases... It would look something like this, I guess: Formula: Creme Deluxe Scent: ? Flavor:? Colors: 2/3 Scarlet, 1/3 Tannin (just an example)

I'm so excited my first KA product has finally arrived. I tested it out last night, it is SO pigmented and feels a little bit dry. My question is, what tool do you usually use to apply it? Do you mix it with any other moisturizer or serum? If you do, please let me know which moisturizer works well this foundation? Thank you!

I use mostly as a concealer, but if I use all over I mix with Embryolisse Lait Cream and apply with a beauty blender.   see post
Bite Beauty Lovers - Looks like we have a new line of nudes coming!
I was poking around on Refinery29 and found this:      The description says it will be a whole line of nudes available in Sephora in the end of January.   I am not sure how I feel about the "Hand cut bullet"    Has anyone heard anything else about these yet?  I am intrigued!

It's definitely opaque to me. It's similar to their regular cream lipsticks in terms of coverage. see post

ColourPop Blushes...they're coming!
Saw on IG colourpop is coming out with a new line of blushes in a couple of weeks.  They are twice the amount of the shadows so the price has increased (bummer).   I guess we'll see them popping up with IGers in a few days.  They don't seem to have a large presence on YT, unless I'm missing something.  The vloggers I follow very rarely state they had products sent to them.  Maybe I'm just not in the know.   I really wish they would do a liquid matte lippie!   I can't wait!  I love a good blush!

I wore Pegacorn today and this is a good one!  I think that the brighter colors tend to work best with my skin tone.  see post
