Bite Beauty Maple Collection? (Canada exclusive)
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:

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: http://community.sephora.com/t5/Lips/Bite-Lip-Lab- Sephora-color-of-the-month/m-p/1847087#M18730   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.

Anastasia Beverly Hills liquid lipstick
Seems like liquid matte lipsticks are huge right now and Anastasia is joining the club with a collection of 20 shades, launching Jan 7th on her website and on Macys.com $20 each.   Here are the swatches for your viewing pleasure   I think the colors are gorgeous and there are at least three shades I know I will be buying.     What do you think?       EDIT: I basically stalked Norvina (Anastasia's daughter) because she's been wearing those lippies and testing them for I while and I got you some pictures so you can see how gorgeous these actually look... which might be not a good thing for us.    Pure Hollywood   Potion   Baby pink Vamp  Sad girl   American doll   Lovely   Vintage   Spicy

Im kinda excited about this. Out now on nars, and will be available at sephora Feb 1, $48 comes with a pump   I hope to find a shade in this, gobi in the original sheer glow was too light and i think the next shade up was a touch dark   "This new formula creates instant polished perfection with full coverage in a single, weightless drop. Its uniquely fluid, oil-free formula defies the expectations of long-wear foundation, delivering full, natural-looking coverage with unexpectedly weightless, 16-hour wear. Ideal for all skin types and tones in 20 global shades that leave skin at its most beautiful. Yet this formula is also, dermatologist tested. fragrance, paraben, alcohol free. The innovative new formula features a unique Weightless Long-wear Technology that moves with skin, delivering up to 16 hours of wear while always feeling light-as-air and an Even Tone Technology that immediately neutralizes redness, dullness and discoloration to improve skin’s appearance over time."

When to start wearing foundation?
I've always wanted to try wearing foundation, but I don't want to put my money towards something I found out I don't need. What exactly is foundation used for? When should I start wearing it? My skin is clear most of the time, except for the occasional spot on my forehead every once in a while. Usually I would cover that pimple up with concealer, and would just see no use in wearing foundation. Please help!

Best foundation for combo/dry skin?
Hi there!   I am here to discuss, based on users' experiences, what is the best foundation for combo/dry skin. I am a 16-year-old teenager that is getting tired of drugstore foundations. It makes me look cakey, it rubs off easily and never stays on. More importantly, they don't help my skin. Due to hormonal changes, I am unfortunately leaning towards the dry territory. My eyebrows are the worst. I have brown hair, but instead of having brown eyebrows they're white from the constant flakiness around my eyebrows, in my eyebrows and eyelids. This all started once hot weather appeared. Before that, I was just pure dry during the winter. My face would burn or would have a burning sensation from dry skin. It was so bad that you could see the flakiness from miles away (exaggerating, of course). My friends kept telling about it. Way before that, I was nothing but oily. Right now, my face is a bit oily, but it's more on the dry side. As I'm writing this post, my face feels like cement but it has some oiliness going on. Any foundations out there to help my situation? I don't have a budget.

Too Faced Born This Way Foundation - June 15th!!!
OMG! Have you all heard about the Too Faced Born This Way Foundation?     It isn't out yet and launching June 15th!  I have watched and seen so many reviews on it with my favorite YouTube Beauty Girls...and it looks so flawless and it just has the best reviews.   I was on the Too Faced website, and the price shows $52.00! Which is very pricey for my budget...but would it be same price on Sephora?   I don't buy from Sephora that often.  Usually just when my foundation runs out, I like to try out different foundations.  Right now I am using the Clinique Stay Matte Foundation.  And like it so far...   Would you all switch your foundation to buy the new Too Faced Born This Way?   Any thoughts or comments?

I'm not sure if anyone knows but MUFE is revamping this formula. im kind of sad, since i do like the original. And its a really good match :/   if you search for thestyleandbeautydoctor she has a review up and theres a chart for the new shades. Mine is  very low so il be waiting  til i run out and the new one is available to try. My shade is 117 which is now Y225. I guess il keep my bottle to compare the color as well.   40 shades anyone else/ thoughts?   I also read on another blog: "Has the formula being changed?"   -As Dany said - they "did not change the formula, but added new ingredients to make it better". *  hyaluronic acid  (to bind moisture to the skin) * amino acid coated pigments (to stabilize pigment) *  mineral mica (to create radiance)

Project 10 Pan Deluxe Sample Challenge: Summer 2015
Hi everyone! Lately I have noticed my deluxe sample collection has become out of control! I am planning to do a Project 10 Pan Challenge to get through some of them. If anyone hasn't heard of Pan 10, basically you give yourself a set amount of time to use up 10 items. I am focusing on deluxe samples because I have too many- I wouldn't want to do this with my full size items that I don't want to use up! I am planning on also doing a no-buy until I finish this challenge (in theory lol). Anyone want to join in a Pan 10 deluxe samples challenge? With or without the no buy?   If you want to join-document your challenge here! I won't be offended if no one joins up, but I wanted to start this thread to keep myself accountable.   My items: 1. MUFE Smoky Extravagant Mascara 2. Tarte Slenderizer Contour Pencil 3. Benefit Sun Beam 4. Supergoop! CC cream 5. EOS mint lip balm 6. Origins Plantscription Night Cream 7. Boscia Tsubaki Sleeping Mask 8. Boscia Tsubaki Cleansing Powder 9. Nars Galaxy Girl lipstick  10. MAC lip liner in subculture
