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! *schedule to the end of the year Spoiler (Highlight to read) Nov. 1- 1-7: drugstore week Nov. 8- 14: brown Nov. 15-21: my new things! *give those newer things some love Nov. 22-28: bronze nov. 29-Dec 5: oldies but goodies*give your lesser used items love! dec 6-12: green dec. 13-19: Champagne dec. 20-26: Red Nov. 1- 1-7: drugstore weekNov. 8- 14: brownNov. 15-21: my new things! *give those newer things some loveNov. 22-28: bronze nov. 29-Dec 5: oldies but goodies*give your lesser used items love!dec 6-12: greendec. 13-19: Champagnedec. 20-26: Red
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!

With so many users looking for the right product to use on their fair/pale/alabaster skin, I thought it would be great to start a thread specifically for this. Some of the main questions I see have to do with the following: - Foundation/concealer shades - Contouring - Highlighting I'll be posting comparison reviews and photos of everything I can get my hands on with these categories, as well as any others that people would like to inquire about. If you'd like to give input as well, please list the following: - Skin IQ/MAC ID/describe skin tone and undertones - Skin type - Foundation matches (make it clear what is a perfect match if you have one, and what is slightly off) - (optional, but highly helpful) Photos of your skin with and without makeup, swatch comparisons, etc. Please ensure there is proper lighting, with little colour overcast (like fluorescent lighting). ME: Skin IQ: 1y02 (closest neutral "match") MAC: NC8-10 Skintone is very pale, neutral to cool toned, translucent, prone to burning and freckles. Some surface redness. Cannot tan whatsoever. Type: Currently normal/combo. Slightly sensitive. Prone to dryness/patches and oilier nose. Foundation Matches: - Kevyn Aucoin Sensual Skin Enhancer sx01 (99% match; more neutral toned, which evens out my redness perfectly) - CoverFX Custom Drops N10 (same tone as KA SS) - Dolce & Gabbana 60 Classic (perfect match) - MUFE HD Foundation Y205 (ever so slightly too light, but looks super natural with contour or blended with a drop of coverfx n10) - Giorgio Armani Luminessence (slightly cooler toned, great match though) - NARS Chantilly Concealer - DiorSkin Nude BB Cream 001 (slightly darker and too pink, but wearable, especially if wearing contour or bronzer) - KVD 42 Common recommendations that are too dark for me: Urban Decay Naked Foundation 0.5 (too dark for me, but would for for a tone darker than I) YSL (Touche Eclat concealer in 1.5 works though) GA Hourglass Tarte EL Too Faced Smashbox (fair is slightly too dark; would work for some a tone darker than I) Dior Foundations/serums (other than the one BB cream) Too light: MJ Genius Gel cream 010 Foundation comparison swatches in natural light: L-R: Spoiler (Highlight to read) NARS Chantilly Concealer MUFE Y205 D&G Classic 60 KA SSE sx01 GA Luminessence CoverfX Custom Drops N10 DiorSkin Nude BB Cream 001 UD Naked 0.5 NARS Chantilly ConcealerMUFE Y205D&G Classic 60KA SSE sx01GA LuminessenceCoverfX Custom Drops N10DiorSkin Nude BB Cream 001UD Naked 0.5 Contour: WIP Highlighting: WIP Let me know if you'd like any other categories, would like more info, or have any questions!

I've tried everything for my poor lips -- Chapstick, sugar scrub, Vaseline, Hurraw lip balm, YSL Tint-in-Oil and lip gloss -- but nothing seems to work. They stay chapped and dry year-round, and when the weather turns cold they crack and bleed. It may be something I need to see a dermatologist about, but her waiting list for the first appointment is six months at the moment. Do y'all know of anything I can try that will help? They burn and sting constantly, and it drives me crazy. HELLLLLPPPPP! Thank you in advance.
I already have the Filmstar bronze & glow palette but looking into some of her other products. Does anyone have any experiences they would like to share esp with her Light Wonder Foundation, her blush and the Airbrush Flawless Finish Powder? I'm interested in getting these three things but still on the fence about taking the plunge! Please let me know, many BTers opinions have helped me out on products before Thanks in advance!
Update...after 15 minutes on hold, Sephora refunded the amount. As long as the refund goes through I'll drop this....but can't delete the post (what customers do when they're put on hold for 15 minutes). My package arrived via UPS repackaged, and missing the two Christian Louboutin lipsticks I'd ordered (the boxes were empty). UPS picked up the packaging; empty envelope and not the box Sephora sent it in. The label had been cut out and repasted on to the envelope. Ups confirmed that the packaging had been damaged and repackaged and that the new label was theirs. Sephora's outcome...no refund. I pay for 2 Louboutin lipsticks and get repackaged empty packaging. I have pictures, as does Sephora, of the envelope. I want my money back or the lipstick I ordered. Sephora told me to contest the charge with my credit card company (love you too Sephora).

I just got an email showing this limited edition set of three Louboutin lipticks in the original rouge color. The packaging is so pretty, but I don't know if I can justify spending this much on lipsticks ($90 each, plus the pretty packaging). For those who have purchased and have been using the Louboutin lipsticks - are you enjoying them? How's the formulation, compared to Tom Ford lippies, for example? Overall, are these lipsticks worth the price? I know part of the cost goes into the tubes, which in themselves are pieces of artwork. But, that alone is not enough for me to spend $90.
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 ETA: My current roster below.

I am having a terrible time finding a highlighter for my pale skin. For reference: I use the Bare Minerals Original Foundation in Fair. I have tried several concealers/highlighters. My most recent attempt is with the Bare Minerals Stroke of Light in Luminous 1. When I apply the highlight, it looks great. However, as the product dries, it darkens and does not look quite right. Any suggestions?
Hello, I'm on the search for an eyliner that will stay on all day. My problem is my bangs sweep across my eyelid and the oil in my hair products causes the eyeliner to disappear. I've tried gel eyeliners, pencil and liquid...nothing seems to work (other than changing my hairstyle). Any suggestions?
I'm looking for opinions from persons who have tried both Burberry Fresh Glow Luminous base in nude v. Laura Mercier Radiance Primer. Specifically the sparkle factor, longevity, and "feel". I like the subtle sparkle factor of the Burberry, it makes it through a 12 hr stretch well, and it doesn't leave me with a "tacky" feel. I haven't tried the Laura Mercier, it interests me more due to it's availability (why is Burberry Always out of stock Sephora?) and the lower price point. The biggest turn off for me would be if it was a glitter bomb. So whats the verdict BT, is the LM a reasonable dupe for the Burberry when taking these preferences into consideration?
I'm new to liquid lipsticks, and have only swatched them on my hands. Brands and price don't matter, I would just like a few recommendations. I also have blue eyes and blonde hair, with very dry skin and lips.
In light of being one of the lucky recipients of a very generous gift from Sephora and Touch in Sol, I would like to dedicate a thread to the Korean based brand and it's products. I personally am not familiar with Touch In Sol. I have seen it on the Sephora site and have overlooked it many times due to a lack of familiarity with the brand. I am a blank slate. I'm eager to try it out and see how it compares to other products and try my hardest to give unbiased reviews. Let's face it, they were a gift and I already love that! Please feel free to share about any products you've tried, loved and cherished, or hated and thrown out the window. This is an information sharing thread, not a fan page- Anything goes!
I've just recently found out this brand was a thing, and I am really interested in them. But, while I am a sucker for witchy themed makeup (shocking right?) this brand is pretty steeply priced, so I'm afraid of shelling out for something that might end up being a dust catcher. I didn't find many of the reviews for them, though I tend to not really like reviews unless I'm at least passingly familiar with the reviewer anyway. I signed up for their newsletter and they sent me a nice coupon ($10 off $50+ if memory serves) so I will probably end up going for it but I would love to hear what BT has to say about them! (They sure know how to grab attention though don't they?)
So, I did the lipstick challenge with Greenchilli and all the ladies in that thread and I thought it might be fun to do the same thing with blush. I don't have enough blush to get through a month, but I figure I'll go until I have gone through all my blush. So the challenge is: wear a different blush every day until you run out of blushes or reach 30 days. Anyone want to join me?

Hello everyone! I have fine lines under my eyes that are prone to creasing. It seems that no matter what I do or what products/tools I use my under eye area creases! Sometimes it creases so much that the lines are emphasized and look bigger. I am 21, and right now I am using the Urban Decay Weightless Naked concealer (but I have even used Mac Pro Longwear, NARS radiant, and drug store ones...) and I set with Mac Emphasize/Anastasia banana powders (I just ordered Laura Mercier's translucent setting powder). No matter what I do, I crease! And yes I moisturize and prime, and if I use more powder than my under eye area looks "chalky" (and still creases). I've watched many YouTube videos but I feel that most of the girls who do the videos don't even have creases under their eyes... Any help or tips/tricks would be greatly appreciated.
