Makeup for the office?
I have a basic 9-5 office job, and lately, I've been over-doing it with the makeup! 1) because I have a lot of new goodies and 2) because it's fun! I was wondering what a good neutral/natural would look like. Show me some looks or what you guys wear during the week! Thanks :-)

Lip Scrub Showdown: Bite Beauty Cherry Scrub vs. Fresh Sugar Scrub
Has anyone tried either or both of these lip scrubs? I've used the Fresh sugar scrub exclusively, but (please forgive me for this) I don't do well with their lip therapy balms (it just worsens the chapping), so I have been using the Bite Beauty Agave Lip Mask with the Fresh sugar scrub. This combo has been working out pretty well for me, but I'm getting near the bottom of my Fresh scrub, and am wondering if I should stick with that or try the Bite scrub instead. Any thoughts?

a dupe for L' Ecole Des Femmes by KVD?
I know it's soon, but is there a dupe for this shade? I'm a bit afraid to commit to this one only because of the matte formula. I know people say they are not too drying, but even when I prep my lips they end up looking flakey after a while. I was hoping someone knew of something a little more hydrating in this salmon-pink-coral shade? Thanks!

Liquid Eyeliner for the Unsteady Hand?
Urban Decay 24/7 Glide pencils are my go to pencils and I probably have about 15-20 colors. Eek! While I love these pencils and I won't stray for them on the daily I would love to try out liquid eyeliner.   Everytime I try liquid eyeliner it's a disaster. I want to acheive that beautiful dramatic black line that I see so often but I have such a shaky hand and the stiff thin tips on the pens and brushes don't help. Is there a liquid liner out there for people like me? Maybe one that is forgiving when it comes to errors and waterproof? : )

No middle ground
I either get extremely dry to the point where my face looks like a desert, or I get extremely oily to the point where my face looks like I went swimming in the BP oil spill. I don't see a direct correlation between hormonal or environmental factors, and I wash my skin with oil controling soap along with using an oil controling lotion. Besides being completely at a loss when it comes to controlling my skin type, I am also a newbie at high end makeup. I would perfer a light to medium coverage but I would like buildability. Also, stating the obvious, it needs to be mattifying. Any suggestions of a foundation and finishing powder that can help me out? To set the record straight, no I was not attempting to go for the dewey look in any of these pictures

Makeup for summer vacation/phasing out makeup
Hello All!   So a little about me.. I am 25, am more Oily-skinned than not, very very fair and never tan. usually have at least one or two blemishes - I dont think i can ever remember a time when i had clear skin.   I usually used Revlon colorstay on a day to day basis, and something like MUFE or MAC for special occasions.    I am headed to the wonderful Disney World in humid, muggy, HOT Orlando soon, and need some makeup help. I want something that provides some coverage for my uneven skin + blemishes, but nothing too heavy. I would prefer something I didnt have to touch up as often etc. can anybody offer a suggestion?   On a side-note... I would love to eventually phase out foundation all together. what would you recommend for doing that? I have horrible self esteem when it comes to my face and I feel like that is my main setback...   I look forward to reading your suggestions!

Is anyone else loving the Givenchy Fall 2014 Collection?
Saw Temptalia's post a couple of days ago on the Givenchy Fall collection for this year, and it's all so beautiful -- from the packaging to the colors. I mean, look at the burgundy leather encasement for the Le Rouge lipsticks! However, the only one I will probably get is the Blush Memoire De Forme Pop Up Jelly Blush in Rose Extravagant -- am I crazy to want to drop $37 on a blush?! :-\ Yikes... However, I feel that between the color and the packaging, it's something that I can admire for a while...as long as it doesn't dry up at some point.   From Make Up 4 All blog   From Fashion Trend Seeker

Q. COLLEGE?!
Hello all!   As you can tell from the title I will be on my way to college very soon! This means I will pretty much be on my own money-wise (with only minimal help from parents). I want to be responsible with my money, but I also don't want to give up some of my favorite makeup brands (first world problems am I right?). This applies to skincare too!   Some questions I have: When do I save and when do I splurge? How long do certain products last (meaning how long before I run out?)? How can I get the most out of my products (making them last as long as possible)? What's a healthy budget amount for makeup? Per year, per month? What are the bare minimum products I should use? One of my goals is to not be excessive with the amount of products I have! Just the basics!

Roxy Boxy TSB
Once I get the box back I'll pick out some items and donate the remaining items to 'The River' (a local organization that takes and redistributes new and used makeup/beauty items to women in need). I've given beauty products to this organization before and they're really good.   * Please make sure every item is in a plastic ziplock bag to prevent spills.   Donts’s ■ DON'T keep the box for more than two days. Keep it moving! If you are traveling or a special circumstance comes up, we can work to rearrange things. (ALSO YOU MUST INCLUDE A TRACKING NUMBER it makes it more fun anticipating your turn) ■ DON'T put unsanitary items of any sort into the TSB. We want to have fun and get gorgeous, not sickly ■ DON'T put any drugstore items into the TSB. ■ No reserve items in the box for others, and don’t ask to have any items reserved for you. This is unfair to others participating. ■ DON'T swatch items from the box. This is a hygienic precaution that we must take, as a lot of people will be handling these items. ■ DON'T take more than what you put in. Please trade at or above each item’s retail value.   Do’s ♥ Please contribute high-end beauty products only. No drugstore items. If you have questions or you are unsure of an item, ask! ♥ Unused, swatched or lightly used products are perfectly acceptable. Well-loved items are not (unless explicitly requested by the next person or there has been a posted picture and someone requested that item). Again, if you’re unsure, ask! ♥ Swatched/used items must be labeled as such. ♥ All opened items must be cleaned/sanitized prior to their addition to the box. ♥ Send your address to the person above you in a PM. ♥ Package things carefully! Try to leave the TSB in better condition than you found it  ♥ Please seal any items that could leak/spill/make a mess accordingly. ♥ Most importantly, share your experience! Please post a photo and a description of the box, what you took, and what you contributed.   Allowed: ☆High-end, clean makeup/skincare items (including makeup bags, brushes, etc. If you have questions, refer to other TSB threads or just ask!) ☆Fragrance (be sure to package bottles properly!) ☆Nail polish (again, be careful!)   Not allowed: ☆Pre-made samples ☆ NO used/swatched lip wands (the kind you dunk the wand in or things like stila lipglaze) ☆Heavily used items ☆ Drugstore items ☆Used items that haven’t been cleaned/sanitized ☆Questionable items (always ask if you have doubts!)   If you cannot take photos, Do Not Sign Up, please *******PUT BETTER OR EQUAL PRICED ITEMS IN FOR WHAT YOU TAKE OUT TO KEEP UP THE INTEGRITY OF THE BOX*********   Final Verdict on Mascara- A lot of the GWP mascaras are not sealed. It is ok to include these mascaras in the box ONLY IF THEY ARE UNUSED. Please be honest (it's a matter of health!). Also, please be aware that some of the mascaras may be dried out upon opening them. Only open them if you selected them as your item. Please be honest when it comes to this.   Also, please pick up a large priority box at the post office prior to receiving the box. This is so we can streamline things (get the box to everyone faster in case the box breaks or there's a spill).   -send your address to the person above you   -post a picture and text what you are taking and what you put in BEFORE you send the box on.   roxystar4 -------> 9405509699937585873456 1. bombshell30  -------> 91149011898666880867309 2. ghkim -------> 9405903699300192324806 3.

Hi BT Buddies!! Here is my dilemma--I have used Jane Iredales pressed and loose minerals, I like both, but the pressed just doesnt give me enough covereage. I want a pressed foundation that gives medium/buildable coverage. I haven't tried BM Ready yet, but I did use the loose in Fairly Light.

I am totally clueless as to what color blush would look good on me. I have several: Nars Orgasm (too shimmery for my liking) Tarte True Love (too red), Tarte Achiote (too dark), Tarte Peaceful (not bad for a light coral), Stila Color Converter in Peony (not a fan of cream blush), and Tarte Flush (too purply), oh and also a NYX in a medium pink color, it's not too bad. I really do love MATTE & POWDER blushes.............maybe someone could give me a few suggestions. Thanks!

Anyone else try They're Real gel liner by Benefit yet?
I ordered mine from Benefit (you could sign up to get it early) and it came about a week ago. Honestly? I find it soooo annoying. I pretty much only use gel liner so I was really excited for this pen but I still can't get the hang of this thing! When I was taking off my makeup tonight I decided to start playing around with it again.   The top pics are a thinner line and the bottom pics I've doubled up. You can see it's kind of difficult to get a nice sharp line.   I was watching NikkieTutorials review on YouTube and she said the same thing so at least I don't feel totally incompetent! And you CAN'T make a mistake when applying it because it's a mess to clean up. You'll have to re-do your complete eye and possibly part of your foundation. I dunno, maybe I'm a creature of habit with my gel pots and brushes. I'll keep playing around with it in the evenings when I'm taking off my makeup and see how good I can get but so far it's definitely not a must-have. Anyone else try this yet? I'd love to hear other opinions!

We are going to have fun and try to keep this going as long as we can!   If you are interested in being in the box, I have a few spots left so post a pic of what samples you have in this thread to be added.   To start off, we are only going to have 10 people! 1. hollygohardly 2.
