What is your favorite indie brand(s)?
Hey ladies and gents!   I'm always on the hunt for new brands to explore.   I love supporting smaller companies that are female and/or minority owned. (the ones you share don't have to be)   What are your favorite indie brands?  Makeup, beauty, body care, clothes etc?     I've loved oyin handmade for YEARS since they started in 1999/2000 or so.  They have really grown and are now available in target stores in some areas.   I also love bake shop butters (the owner is so sweet) she just got married so her shop is closed for now, but her body butters are WONDERFUL and smell so good.   Toni Daley makes some AMAZING jewelry!  I have some of her earrings and any time I wear them someone always asks me where I got them.   Rachel Stewart also make some incredible pins and earrings.

Tom Ford Lips & Boys
SO EXCITED!!    11/28/14, they are coming out with 50 LE miniature lipsticks, selling at $32 each. I need them all.   A snippet from an article about them:   " In the Lips & Boys lineup, there are 10 shade ranges, encompassing nude browns, violets and plums, metallics, reds and light pinks. The high-pigment shades are done in a base of soja seed extract, Brazilian murumuru butter and chamomile flower oil. Thirty-six offerings are new shades; 10 are from Velvet Suede, Ford’s current seasonal color story, and four are from previous seasons. Ford predicted bestsellers will include Tomas, a coral hue; Matthew, a coral pink; Flynn, a light pink; Giacomo, a deep rose, and Patrick, a muted coral pink. Each clutch-size lipstick will retail for $32. The lipsticks can also be packaged in sets of any three hues in the collection."

Fall Lipstick...wine colored
I'm totally obsessed with lipstick right now.  I'm normally a gloss kind of girl, but I bought the Bite lip set and UD Revolution in Rush now all I want to do is buy lipstick.    What are your favorite wine colored lipsticks for fall?  I have fair skin, with hazel eyes, and dark drown hair.      Thanks for helping me feed my addiction

Nail polish for my tween
My daughter and I spent some time at Sephora today (have to train them young) and she was all over the polishes.  She paints her own nails and is trying to learn designs and such.     She was gaga over the Marc Jacob colors, but at almost 20 a pop I can't see buying a bunch of those.   I don't wear polish on my nails due to my career.   Any advice on what to invest in for her?   She was looking at the ciate' advent calendar, but the reviews on that aren't great and it's 60 bucks.

Brands You'll Never Buy/Hate?
The Lime Crime thread got me thinking, I don't know a whole lot about the companies I buy from, beyond what I can dig up on my own while reading reviews or looking for swatches. What other companies (let's keep them beauty related only, or we'll be here all year) would you never buy from, and why? Are there any you refused to try for a long time but have since changed your mind on?   Mine are:   1. Lime Crime (totes obvs, right) 2. Sigma -- I genuinely don't care whether they have a good product or not, but if I hear one more YTer say "I'm using Sigma #XX, I'll link it below" I will smack someone. I feel like they have over-saturated the online beauty community with affiliates and hidden sponsorships to the point that I just have no desire whatsoever to try anything from them. Ever. 3. Kat Von D - just don't like her, so I'm not giving her my money. 4. CoastalScents - sort of the same as Sigma, but I did buy several glosses from them a few years ago and the colors and quality were just way sub-par, even if they weren't expensive. 5. Savina - I bought two polishes from a Nordstrom Rack to try out and they were SO AWFUL that I vowed never to buy another one, not even if it looked gorgeous. 6. Enkore - same thing, bought a few eyeshadows and they were so awful I'll never buy anything from him again. I think he even quit producing eyeshadows, so I clearly wasn't alone in my dislike for them. 7. Any and all celebrity-backed perfumes. I think I have one bottle of J.Lo's Glow from back in the day (and it does smell lovely), but again it's that over saturation of the market that turns me off. I feel like I see Britney Spears/Jessica Simpson/Justin Bieber/One Direction fragrances in every single drugstore or discount store I go to.   One I Changed My Mind On: Glamglow! When their stuff first came out, it was SO EXPENSIVE and had so much hype that I was immediately skeptical. I think I tried one foil of the black mask and the flakes inside of it annoyed me to the point of dismissing the brand entirely. When the SeasonSet sample bag arrived, I pulled the Thirstymud sample out and it popped on me! The crimped end of it had blown apart and it was all over my hands.. and it smelled so good.. so I figured, better to smear it on my face and see what was up, rather than wash it down the drain. I'm glad I did; my skin was suuuuuuper soft, like crazy soft, when I washed it off. It also stayed really soft even after I washed with cleanser, and I felt like it was still pretty soft in the morning. I've got a trip coming up to cooler temperatures in the desert soon so I found another foil sample of it in my sample stash and ordered the kit before the VIBR sale ended, to have some on hand.   ETA: I hope no one takes offense to any of this stuff, it's just makeup. I'm positive there will be someone out there who dislikes a brand I like, so no hurt feelings.

No makeup. Actually.
I'm going to post a picture of me without makeup. Because hey, I love makeup, but I'm also working on embracing my face au naturel, too.   None of this "I'm not wearing makeup" when you're wearing a tinted moisturizer, brown mascara, and have a slight flush to your cheeks and lips. I'm talking no makeup AT ALL (No, not even clear lip balm).   This is me, about 10 minutes out of the shower.   Anyone else brave enough?

Colourpop eye shadows?I
It seems like my YT home page has been inundated with reviews of these $5 Colourpop Super Shock cream eye shadows. They actually look quite lovely, but when I see everyone and their mother doing a review for something they were sent on YT, I tend to take those reviews with a heaping grain of salt. Has anyone actually tried these? The price is appealing at least.

Makeup for flash photos! HELP!
It doesn't seem to matter makeup I wear... I ALWAYS show up stark white in flash photos - and yes, I've tried taking them at all different distances. I'm kinda fair as it is. Light skin with really warm undertones. I'm not sure if its a blush I'm using, a bronzer, a setting powder? I usually use Nars Sheer Glow or Giorgio Armani Luminous Silk Foundation, MAC MSF Natural, whichever bronzer I feel like using (either the Anastasia contour kit or NYC sunny bronzer), and a Nars blush. I also always use Urban Decay All Nighter Setting Spray. Any suggestions on what could be causing me to look like a corpse in photos/product recommendations to solve my issue?

Your best eyebrow product
I feel like my looks aren't complete until my eyebrows are done and a lot of you probably feel the same way. I was looking at threads but it's mostly 'what can I use to so and so, and this causes this and that' type of deal.   I use several products for different things.I recently discovered the PERFECT product for a natural brow, and well for a more polished brow I have a favorite one as well, so let's begin.    What brow products are your HG?   Natural brow - Giorgo Armani Eye and Brow maestro Defined brow - (For a dark brown I use UD brow box and set it with abh  tinted gel) Defined brow - (for a black brow I just use any matte black eyeshadow)     Now t hat I've listed my products.. I have both wenge wood and jet black for the GA and I thought that the black would be a bit too dramatic (my thoughts before trying it on) but WOW, it actually keeps my brow looking as thick as i want it and natural. Seriously. This product is foolproof.    If I were to suggest any products to anyone, it'd be the ones I listed (ud brow box and GA). I still wnt to try the brow zing from benefit though.

Best nude eye palette that isn't from UD?
Hi lovelies!   I am in search of a new nude eyeshadow palette.

Anyone else experiencing this issue with Nars Train Bleu?
So I recently bought it and I wore it yesterday for the first time. The color is way darker on my lips than when I swatched it, which is fine, HOWEVER, the problem is that it settled into my lips almost immediately and made me look like I had black blotches. It was not a flattering look. I exfoliated and primed my lips before as well. Any suggestions before I return it?

So, I'm really liking rosy gold/brown right now and have been eyeing that palette ever since it came out.  But everyone seemed to have issues with the quality, especially with Dust which I thought was gorgeous.  I keep hoping that it was just an issue with the first palettes released, but I don't live close enough to a Sephora to play with a more recently created palette.  Does anyone know if the quality increased?

I LOVE makeup... but I'm not allowed to wear it!
I have a major obsession with makeup. I would literally spend all of my money at Sephora. There is just one problem. I can't wear nearly any makeup! Here is a complete list of what I'm allowed to wear: mascara- If my mother can't see it lippies, in most colors except reds (pinks, neutrals, and berries)  neutral eyeshadow for special occasions only maybe blush for special occasions but very little This is a very sad list- at least for my makeup obsessed mind. I want to browse the aisles of each and every Sephora, with a perfectly made up face. I love makeup so much. My mom, although she is wonderful, doesn't see eye to eye with me on this. I view makeup as a form of freaking ART ON MY FACE! It's awesome.  Do you, my fellow beauty lovers, have any tips on how to convince my parents to let me wear makeup? Do you guys have any similar stories? Ideas, mutual support, anything is appreciated.
