What would be a good Urban Decay eye shadow for all over the lid?  I have light skin, dark hair, green eyes, cool undertones. Thanks!

Have you guys seen these?! There are tons of shades and finishes to choose from, and you can build your own palette! I can't wait to try these; I wonder if Sephora will carry all of the shades? There are so many and I'd really like to go in and test a good chunk of them.     http://www.sephora.com/artist-shadow-P387670?skuId =1622745
Benefit Tints not blended.jpg
Face
I love Benefit and its tints (for my cheeks, that is).  They're not all created equally though.  Yes, they are a beautiful collection of red, pink, orange and purple.  While you can dot, dab or draw a line of Benetint, Cha Cha Tint and Posie tint and take a few seconds to rub them in, you must rub Lolli in very fast to prevent streaks.  I suggest applying it one handed with the other hand up there right away to blend.  You can also apply the tint to your finger and quickly rub it into your face.  Forget brushes.  With Lolli, there is no time.   A customer asked my Benefit brow specialist about the tints today.  When she did not know the answer, I filled the customer in.  She told me I just sold her on the product and proceeded to buy it.  Then, my Brow Specialist started asking me how to work the tints today.  I thought if I can help a Benefit rep, others may have questions.  She had only tried Lolli and had no clue the other three were easier to work with.  Hopefully, other people who start with Lolli are not afraid to try the other three.   Anyway, if you have questions about the tints, post them here.  Someone will fill you in.  If anyone is interested, I can provide swatches as well.

So I had this Olay click pen, which I love because I could just throw it in my purse for touch ups. I liked that it treated my eyes as well. Now what would be a similar product at Sephora? I don't want just a regular concealer or illuminator in a click pen, I want something that treats and moisturise. Thanks!

Please share your Personal Tips/Products/Tricks to Minimize Under Eye Concealer from Creasing.  Also, what under eye products...Moisturizer/Primer/Concealer/Tool(s) do you use?   There are always products/suggestions/tips that are very helpful that haven't been tried or a new method to what may have worked in the past that needs tweaking as our skin changes!   I have a personal interest in ALL your suggestions for Dry, Crepey or Mature Under Eye Skin Texture trouble shooting.    P.S. I've had a sudden weight loss which makes my under eye area look like a deflated balloon. I'm unable to use HA's due to sensitivity having to ditch everything with high amounts of HA's.   This post isn't limited to my concerns...it's to address a Common Shared Concern by many people of under eye creasing with the use of make-up in general!

I am so excited to try this!    It's available on Dior's site now, any idea when we might see it on Sephora?   "Inspired by the professional illuminating techniques and expertise of its makeup artists, Dior invents Diorskin Star, its 1st brightening foundation: a weightless fluid capable of recreating the spectacular and perfecting light of Dior's studios.   - The complexion is instantly more luminous and visibly more even. A new generation of hollow silica beads captures and diffuses light in a correcting halo with no shine. At the same time, colour-filter pigments neutralize colour imbalances to recreate the perfect light. - The complexion is clarified with a purer, more dazzling and long-lasting light. Anti-"light-trap" skincare ingredients help reduce the appearance of dark areas, pigment spots and redness."

I know alot of you guys love the brand. They have a good selection on HauteLook right now. I've never used them before. Please share any insight you have! The blushes look pretty. What's the quality like? Happy Shopping!

I've been scouring the Internet, but only product pictures and gloss swatches come up. Are they super new? Anyway, I'm looking for a neutral kind of no-blush blush that adds a bit of flush and definition without much color and it seems like a couple of them could fit the bill. Or, if anyone can recommend a different blush that would accomplish that, that would be cool, too. Here's the product I'm talking about...   http://www.sephora.com/blush-volupte-heart-of-ligh t-powder-blush-P388641?skuId=1625524  
Lips
I tried to achieve a matte lips look with loose powder (LM translucent powder) over a tissu (and half a tissu) and when I removed tissu, the result is matte but all color seem to stay on the tissu instead of my lips. So, I'd like to get some trick to get this look without buying (again) other lipsticks. Thanks!!!

I'm planning to make a trip to sephora tomorrow. My concealer creases but I heard there are good powders to set under the eyes after concealer. Does anyone know any good ones?

Wondering what new palettes Kat Von D will have, as well as what's to come from Tarte and UD!!! Who else is with me and what are you excited for? Can we expect these the end of this month?

I just spotted this on Temptalia....      They are 10 for $12 or 30 for $22...    I just... why? Why would you spend over (or almost) a dollar for a lip wipe? Am I missing something here? Are we too good for a spitty tissue to wipe off mistakes or stain?

I use BareMinerals READY Foundation R250 - What formula would I use if I have a tan as a shade darker?

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.

I was recently gifted a $25 gift card, which I am very excited to use, but I have no idea what to get. I figured I would need a little more cash to cover the cost of what I may want, so I decided to budget myself at $40 so I wouldn't have to spend too much money. As excited as I am to go shopping, I have no idea what to get. I was thinking I would try Josie Maran's makeup because I have been loving their skincare, but then I started looking into other brands and their products so I am no longer sure what I want to get. So I was wondering what makeup products you guys would recommend that are under $40. I am pretty much open to any type of makeup because I always love trying new items and new brands.

So school is soon approaching and I am going to be starting my masters degree in Epidemiology (excited yet scared)!    Anyways, I am certain that I am going to be very busy and will only be able to go to the gym between class breaks or before class starts. Other than that, I will be researching, with clients, or TAing.   My question is, do you or should you go to the gym with makeup on? If you do, what do you do with your face afterwards? Obviously I do not want to reapply my makeup on a sweaty face and if I shower, I would have to start my whole skincare regime again followed by makeup (which takes quite a long time). In addition, I would be in a male locker room and could you imagine what those "gym jocks" would think if they saw me doing my routine ... oh please (I hate when people judge).   Any tips, advice or suggestion would be great to hear!   Definitely let me know, thank you so much in advance!   Michael, xo

I recently bought the HOURGLASS Arch Brow Sculpting Pencil, because of the great reviews. I was going through a Brow Wiz way too quickly. When I found out the Hourglass pencil is 0.014oz, for $32 ($37CAD), compared to 0.003oz $21($27) for the Brow Wiz, I was sold. If you compare the 2, the brow wiz is so much more expensive! You would pay $98 ($126 CAD) for the same amount of product! I even compared it with drugstore products and it's still a better value.   So, my question is, do you have any other go-to products that you think have such a great value?

I own the anniversary set of the brushes for Sonia Kashuk and I love them. However I hardly ever shop at Target and do not buy makeup from there, but I have been curious about these brands makeup wise when I do go in. So what do you guys think of them? Is there something specific I should try out? The Pixi liner's sound really nice.
Face Q&A
I want a foundation or bb cream that has a very sheer coverage, and natural look, but on the other side I have oily skin ? Anything good
Lips
I bought recently the Bite lip duo that has the two colors Lychee and Musk and I am in love! Now Musk I see you buy in full size but I did not see the color Lychee in full size. Does anyone know if this color is available in full size or a shade that is similar? That color is my perfect nude for my fair skin. Thanks for the help

I'd like to rebuild my makeup bag, and recently came into some extra income. What products do you recommend to use in a daily routine?

I've always stuck to neutral pink/red or bold red lip shades. I'd really like to experiment a bit more with new colours this fall - darker! More plum/purple/brown tones. But I'm also a little bit nervous.    I've got fair skin (cool undertones), brown eyes (pretty dark), and brown hair with quite a bit of red in it (like a dark auburn almost).    Any suggestions? I think I'm going to pick up Givenchy Le Rouge in Violine Precieux, although I think that's a fairly safe shade to pick.    I've also been eyeing the new Bite shades - but none of the stores near me have them in stock yet has anyone had a chance to swatch them or see what they look like in person?

Hello Makeup Experts, How do I achieve perfect eyebrows everyday? My brows are sparse and I naturally have a wide space between them and have been told that I need to bring them in closer with the aid of makeup (eye shadow or pencil). Thanks and have a great weekend, TMS

What would be an equivalent to Prescriptives ANYWEAR MULTI-FINISH COMPACT FOUNDATION in Antelope (Y/O)? They seem to have discontinued it without informing me and my conpact fell and broke this very morning! I need help asap! It has to be somewhat mattifying as i have combination skin that can get oily throughout the day.Any advice would be welcome!
