Let's talk about Charlotte Tilbury..
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!

THE VISEART THREAD
Thought I'd start a thread just for Viseart since so many of us LOVE them.   I love to encourage a small brand as opposed to a brand where you pay for the name. The eye shadow quality can't be beat! ************************************************** ******* COMING SOON Blush - possibly palette called Faye New eye shadow palette - shimmer   NEW PRODUCTS Theory palettes - Cashmere, Minx, Chroma (6 pan) Ribbons Boheme 02 (12 pan) (should be pulled from the market shortly)   WHERE TO BUY Sephora Muse Beauty Pro Beauty Bay Beautylish Alcone Frends Beauty     Price breakdown for those interested Spoiler (Highlight to read) Saw this on Facebook a while back and thought I'd add it here.   A 12 color Viseart Eyeshadow Palette is $80 USD (before pro discount). Each eyeshadow pan is 2 grams and valued at approx. $6 ($3.00 per gram).   MAC has reduced the price of their single eyeshadows refills from $10 USD to $6 USD each. So 12 colors at the new reduced price would be $72 USD (before pro discount). Add the $8 USD empty palette to store them and we're back to $80 USD.   EXCEPT: Each MAC eyeshadow pan is only 1.3 grams ($4.62 per gram). You're getting only 15.6 grams of product, as opposed to the 24 grams of eyeshadow in the Viseart palette. That's a loss of over 8 grams of product.   FINAL ANALYSIS: It would cost $119 USD for MAC to duplicate the Viseart palette (24 grams of MAC eyeshadow at $4.62 per gram and $8 for the palette).

What is the best makeup brush set for a beginner?
Hello! So I've always been intrigued by makeup but found it all overwhelming. Typically I just use a foundation and mascara from Walmart. I really would love to learn about how to choose and apply different products, while after watching videos and reading many blogs I'm still overwhelmed but thankfully not as much. I know it's going to be a learning process that I hope will be more fun than frustrating. Anyways, I'm trying to take it step by step so I was wondering if anyone has suggestions on a good starter kit of brushes for a beginner. I'm not wanting to spend a crap ton of money, but I also don't want to cheapen out and have to replace them anyways. So I would be willing to spend a bit more for a decent set that will last me a long time. If this helps in recommending anything my main focus is to have nice flawless skin but until I'm more comfortable I plan to keep it kind of neutral (so nothing too crazy for eyeshadows). I'm not sure if that would matter that I plan to keep it neutral for at least awhile but I just want you to get the best picture of what I'm hoping to achieve. Anyways, I'll stop rambling now! Thank you so so much in advance!

Lipstick for Tarte's "Blushing Bride"
Hi everyone!   A few weeks ago, I purchased a Tom Ford lipstick and a YSL lipstick. I did return them due to them both being impulse purchases. I want a good lipstick for my wedding in June. I have the gloss "Blushing Bride" (because of the name and color), but I want a lipstick for under it. I have fair skin, and I plan on having a little color before the big day. I'm not into the bold lip colors. If I wear lipstick, it's Lancome's Color Design Sensational Effects Lipcolor in "Love It". What would you recommend to go with "Blushing Bride"? Thanks!!

Bring the heat without the sun!
  Hi Beauty Talkers! We have exciting news to share. The On-the-Glow family has a new member, it’s our On-the-Glow Bronzer & Illuminator. Say hello to our new Wanderberry packaging and we’ve got two new shades to share. Malibu is inspired by California beauties and their sun-kissed skin, it’s ideal for fair to light skin tones. Capri is inspired by Southern Italian beauties and their bronzed goddess look, it’s ideal for medium to deep skin tones. Use the matte bronzer to sculpt and define and the Candle Glow Illuminator to add dimension.       Just a few ways here:   Some added benefits… Vitamins A, C  & E –  conditions and smoothes skin, provides antioxidant protection HD Effects Pigments – illuminates skin with an undetectable glow/finish Lemon Extract – gently removes dead skin cells and lightens facial discolorations Hyaluronic Acid – retains moisture Collagen – Provides firmness and elasticity to the skin Co-Founder Lindsay Ellingson: I love to apply our Malibu bronzer to the apples of my cheeks and across my nose, the areas on my face the sun would naturally hit. In seconds I'm transported to my favorite beach in Malibu! I also apply our Candle Glow illuminator down the center of my legs to elongate them and add a gorgeous glow!   Co-Founder Divya Gugnani: I’ve got medium/tan skin and I use Capri on either side of my nose for a slimming effect. I’m convinced one side of my nose is wider than the other and this really does the trick of making my nose look even! Also, I do a quick swipe just below my cheekbones on either side for a more contoured look. I love the Candle Glow illuminator because its golden tone instantly illuminates my already golden complexion. When we were testing the formula the first name that came to us was...Candle Glow...because the luminous sheen reminds us of the romantic hue from candle light.     Have any of you tried it yet? What are your favorite matte bronzer and highlighter tips & tricks? Sound off below!   Check it out here!  http://www.sephora.com/on-the-glow-bronzer-illumin ator-P408440?keyword=WANDER%20BEAUTY%20On-The-Glow ...

Please help me find a new full coverage foundation and compact powder. I have been using Cover FIX, New shade and a translucent loose powder. My pores are on the larger side and I noticed that it seems to sit in my pores. I want a full cover look, that evens my skin tone and also diminishes my pores. I am oily in the T zone and live in a humid climate in southeast Alaska.

What is a good primer for dry skin
I have dry skin and i'm in need of a good primer. I currently use the estee lauder double wear foundation which I know is on the drying side but it is the only longest lasting fullest coverage foundation I have found so far that I can wear that covers my acne scarring without a concealer. So what would be a good foundation thatI could use with the double wear that will help hydrate my skin and prevent it from getting dry patches from the foundation?

Need help with makeup for oily skin
I have very oily skin and I have issue with my makeup. I have been through countless different brands of foundation and haven't been able to find one that can withstand the oil my face is producing. By the end of the day my face has become so oily that my makeup has basically either fallen off my face or caked up so bad that it looks awful. On top of all these people ask me whether I'm in my 50's. I'm 44 years old and because of my work pressure, my face looks tired and there are wrinkles under my eyes and forehead. I have heard botox treatment helps to regain the lost youthfulness so I'm thinking of undergoing the procedure from a cosmetic dermatology centre in Richmond Hill ( http://www.thecentrefordermatology.com/procedures/ anti-aging/botox-cosmetic/ ). Can I get botox in oily skin? Can anyone recommend a good makeup for oily skin? Thanks!!

Nose always cakey and red under foundation
Hi! I have skin that is normal to dry, and I have been having trouble finding a light foundation that will stay put on my nose- by mid afternoon my nose is always redder than the rest of my face and it often has a cakey/dry look to it. I've tried smashbox and benefit's primer, but those seem to break me out. The rest of my face looks fine through the day, it's just the nose. Foundations I have used include Laura Mercier oil free, smashbox bb cream,, dr jart bb cream, and currently bare minerals complexion rescue.
