Birthday lipstick! I am in love!
The color is Make Up For Ever Rouge Artist Natural in N9 Copper pink. So incredibly gorgeous and really versatile. I am brown-skinned and it looks lovely. And my friend is Filipino and she looks great in it too. Bravo, Sephora! Keep putting more universally appealing lipsticks for gifts and rewards. This was a win!   http://www.sephora.com/rouge-artist-natural-P30770 0?skuId=1396795

Smell of Guerlain Powders - Expired?
So I just used 2 of my Guerlain powders--1 is the Terracotta Light Bronzer and the other is the pressed Meteorites Voyage.  Both have that signature violet scent.  I've had these powders for almost a year and I've used them on very few occasions and always with clean brushes.  When I used them today, I noticed that my brush had a weird sour smell when I ran it across my nose.  I thought maybe it was my brush so I tried another brush with the bronzer and still got that sour smell. Then I thought maybe my foundation was causing that smell so I used another brush, swirled it around my face and there was no scent so I'm pretty sure that sour smell is coming from my Guerlain powders.   My question is, has anyone else noticed that their Guerlain powders smell sour? Have my powders expired or is that normal? There isn't any suggested expiration date on the packaging, and I don't see parabens in the ingredients...just benzyl alcohol so I'm assuming the lack of many preservatives means that it goes bad quickly...which sucks...they were so expensive and honestly performed mediocrely and now they've possibly gone bad.   Update:   According to his article, some people just pick up the violet scent as being sour...so I guess it's not bad? Interesting that different people smell things different though.   http://www.dailymail.co.uk/sciencetech/article-238 3238/Love-smell-beer-cheese-Thank-DNA-Scientists-c ...

MARC JACOBS BEAUTY The Sky-Liner Highliner Collection OOS
Hello all,   I just saw that MJ highliner set is out of stock. Do you think it will be restocked for the VIB sale? If you bought it, how do you like it? Do you think it is worth it?    I am not a very eyeliner-y person but I am really into the brand. I also have blue-green eyes. Do you think it would compliment my eye colors?    Ahh that was some questioning Thanks all!

Is Diorskin Forever 022 really a match for 1Y05
Is Dior Forever in 022 REALLY a match for 1Y05 or is that a mistake? The description says its for pink undertones. I currently wear the 020 because I'm 1Y06 but feel like I need something a little lighter for winter. Should I go with the 022 or the 010? Also, the 020 seems to oxidize on me and go just a bit Orange but it's not that bad and still looks good.

Hooked on Neutral Palettes
Hi! First post. I am totally addicted to neutral eyeshadow palettes and need a little help. What are your fav non-neutral palettes. I have several (sigh, FOUR) of the NAKED palettes and another neutral Tarte palette (and I'm forgetting a few others) and really want to add some color to my collection. I love so many and just can't make a decision.

Best Dry mascara
I hope you can help me! I am currently looking into getting a new mascara. I have been using Helena Rubenstein Lash Queen Waterproof Black for a while, but I wanna change it. I have thin, short and fine lashes, so looking for a formula that won't weigh down my lashes, which is my main problem with all mascaras. I prefer it to be waterproof as I work out a lot. I really want lots of volume and lenght. I really hope you can suggest some suitable mascaras for me.

Best Bright Blue Lipstick?
I have a love for ridiculous lipstick colors and am in the market for a true blue. Everything points me at OCC's Rx but I own their Traffic (primary yellow) and haven't been the happiest with the consistency.   Basically if I'm spending $18 I don't want it feathering off my face, transferring to everything and remaining tacky and wet all day as lip tars seem wont to do.   I don't want a blue-black or a cyan or a navy. I could live with a darker shade but not something that is ashamed of its own color. I also absolutely want to avoid pastels.   And to round off the spending point, I don't want to waste my money.   Is OCC: Rx the best bet? A few cheap brands have ventured into the blue game such as NYX but cheap make-up is usually cheap for a reason. My other option is some indie companies I might reach out to.   Any ideas?

Kat Von d: launching a new beauty website on 10/30/14
I follow Kat Von D on Facebook and yesterday, Monday, 10/20/14, she posted that she was launching a new beauty website in 10 days/on 10/30/14.🙀   See her post on FB for details on what the intent of the site is. I didn't want to post a screen capture of her post for two reasons 1) I am not sure if I'd be infringing on some protected material and 2) there was one bad word at the bottom of her post and I'd have to figure out how to edit that out since BT has rules on language. 😜   I am pretty excited - I love her products and I love her tutorial videos. I am anxiously awaiting the launch! I did visit the site to see what is currently posted and I was able to sign up to receive email communications. The site already looks pretty hot!🔥

Torn between Naked1 and Naked2
I have been searching for a good neutral palette for quite some time now and I have been trying to talk myself out of getting one of these palettes, but I have decided to take the plunge and get one of them. However, I am torn between the two of them. I personally think that cooler toned shadows fit my skin tone better (I sort of have yellowish undertones) so after some suggestions I have been leaning towards the naked 2. But there are some colors I really cannot stand in the palette (tease, pistol, foxy), and I know those shadows would go to waste. In the naked1 palette the only color I cannot stand is gunmetal (and maybe toasted would end up being a dislike), but because the colors are so warm I'm afraid I would get it and realize that none of the shadows are good for me, which would lead me to not reaching for it. Lastly, I was looking at swatches of the naked2 palette and this photo really caught my eye.  The colors look sooo pigmented and nice, but in some other photos I have seen the colors look completely different and not as nice. Does this photo accurately show the true colors of the naked2 palette?   Anyway, I'm basically town between the two and I would love if anyone has some good feedback on this! Thanks!

Benefit Cheeky sweet spot packaging size
In case anyone was wondering about the packaging on this, here are some photos with my Naked2 palette for comparison. It's needlessly big, so I am going to try to depot them into an old Trish McEvoy magnetic folder, which is about 1/5 the size. If it goes well I'll post the process photos for anyone who is thinking of doing the same thing.

Makeup nostalgia
Recently I was purging my collection when I came across these two items. They're the ones that have made it through all of my purges no matter how ruthless. Why? Because they have sentimental value.   The Lancôme Color Design Artist Palette (2007-2008) was the first "high end" palette I ever bought and playing with it is really what got me into high end makeup. I also had a ridiculous amount of fun while wearing this palette and discovered both the purple and the navy smokey eye as my signature night time "go-to" look.   The L'Oréal Laetitia Casta "look" combo (2007) is what really got me into thinking about "looks" and how everything goes together.   What sentimental makeup items are you guys hanging on to?
