Makeup
I've seen women who can wear a full face of make up while working out - foundation, eyeliner, everything! I wouldn't wear any myself, because I frankly sweat like a pig and looking pretty/decent/presentable/human is probably the last thing on my mind, but I do marvel the ladies who can look so put together even when they're running or doing reps.   I'm really curious how their makeup stays put. I can barely get my eyeliner to stay even when I'm not exercising and not end up with raccoon eyes! :/ (I'm a totally new makeup noob, btw....)   Any workout goddesses want to share their secrets?

I'm pretty rushed in the morning, so sometimes I don't clean my eyeliner or cream blush brush right afterward, and of course it dries and becomes hard and difficult to clean when I get home.   So I'm looking to change this habit.    What is the best and fastest way to spot clean your eyeliner brush or other brushes that come into contact with liquid/cream products? I'd like it to be thorough enough that I can use the brush for a few days before doing a deep cleaning, abut not super time consuming.

Has anyone tried Graftobian or Kryolan cream foundations? I saw a YouTuber use a Kryolan Palette for contouring and highlighting and now I want one   There's a ton of different Kryolan ones. I was drawn to these in particular:      Or should i just save money and get a coastal scents concealer palette?

Hello!  I recently bought an orange dress for prom this year, and I was wondering what color eye makeup would best compliment that color without making it look like too much? Thank you!

I've been eying this palette for a few weeks now, but haven't heard anything about it. It has all of the Summer shades I'm looking for, but I don't have any experience with Lorac shadows. Please, oh please, let me know what you think so I can get it shipped!   Note: I think the palette is an Ulta exclusive. 
Lips
I am turning to you, my BT community, in all of your wisdom. I generally wear neutral/nude/natural lip colors. I think my lips look thin and harsh with dark colors, but I would like to try more of a bright color. I see so many photos posted of everyone, and the brighter colors look so nice on everyone, no matter what shape their lips  or face.  "berry blushed" from Clinique and "watermelon" Burt's Bees are about as colorful as I have right now. Otherwise, I have Dolly Buxom and Blossom by Mally...nice colors, but no pizzazz. Here are my stats and preferences: Fair skin with pink undertones, 49 with nice skin, average lips but they turn down on the corners a bit.   I prefer a more sheer coverage with shimmer. Glosses preferred, but if a lipstick is more moisturizing, that will work too.  Something coral, berry or pinks that aren't dark or fuschia-bright  but are pretty and great for Spring and Summer?  Thanks in advance!

I've noticed a few threads on how to clean brush and whatnot, and in them, deep cleaning and spot cleaning is mentioned. Sooooo can anyone explain the difference? Isn't cleaning a brush cleaning it?
Makeup
I went to return something to my local Sephora, and they had all the Kat Von D Liquid Lipsticks back in stock. They're not available online yet, but they aren't gone forever!!
Makeup
I've been such a slave to Sephora & Ulta that I no longer own any drug store makeup. I'm on a tight budget right now so therefore I must downgrade on a few items. What are you favorite drug store or department store makeups? Eyeliners/Mascaras/Gloss/Eyeshadow...anything...Th anks!

I have been using Clinique's Brush on Cream Liner and I love it, it is so easy to use, but sometimes it can be hit or miss on the staying power. What do you guys recommend for one that is long wearing and easy to use?

Has anyone come across make-up removing wipes that don't have a smell to them? I've tried nearly every Neutrogena wipe out there (as well as Olay, etc.) and all of them seem to have perfumes in them.  It's not a huge problem for me as my skin doesn't break out because of this, but I just personally would prefer to not have my skin smell like pink buttfruit every time I try and clean my face. Any recommendations?

Prom is right around the corner and I desperately need to find a foundation that is good for taking pictures! I tried looking at some at target and ulta, but can't find one that I like so if anyone can help me, that would be great!

        I saw this in a Bloomingdales catalog and was wondering if anyone knew what lip gloss this was.  It didn't say what the model was wearing on her lips.

I am very interested in the new kiss and blush launched by YSL. But I am not sure whether Sephora will carry this product?
Lips
    The only lip products I use and have used are  the Dior Addict lip glow and Benetint..   I like them, but I would love to try new ones.. just that I don't know where to begin.. I don't even know which type (lipgloss, plump, balm, stick etc) is what I'm looking for    I have fair-light yellow toned skin (wear Dior nude foundation in 011),  don't wear alot of makeup and focus on the complexion.. simple eyeliner and mascara.  one of the reasons why I didn't wear lip products was because I didn't want to look "awkward" if that makes sense..  I even had a few Armani sheer lipsticks that I never wore.. (orange color looked very awkward on me)    could I please get some recommendations on something that looks natural?  I've heard about transfer free lip products also and is curious

So I wanted to pick up a new palette but I don't know which one or ones to get.  I have the Naked palettes, Smoked, and Vice by Urban Decay.  But I'd like to branch out and try a different brand.  I've only read reviews on these palettes and I do want to swatch them, but I don't want to be tempted by all 4.  Is there any that are better than the others? Are they pigmented?  Good variety?  Or are they too closely related to my palettes?  Any help is appreciated!   http://www.sephora.com/monarch-eyeshadow-palette-P 385530?icid2=Kat_Von_D_WhatsNew_Carousel_P385530_l ...   http://www.sephora.com/chrysalis-eyeshadow-palette -P385529?icid2=Kat_Von_D_WhatsNew_Carousel_P385529 ...   http://www.sephora.com/the-chocolate-bar-eye-palet te-P384402?icid2=Too_Faced_Editors_Picks _P384402_link   http://www.sephora.com/the-return-of-sexy-eye-shad ow-palette-P375171?skuId=1442201

I am making a short trip to Tokyo this summer. While a lot of it will be sight seeing, I most definitely will curve out time for shopping. So I just want to hear everyone's suggestions on things worth picking up!   I am am not looking for foundations, concealors or powder (unless it's absolutely amazing, contemplating on Cle de peau concealor which is cheaper there). No eyeshadows either, maybe a few mascaras, liquid eyeliners, lip products and as many blushes/cheek products as I see fit and most certainly brushes. (I want to get some hakuhodo or chikuhodo, but any other suggestions are totally welcome) I would prefer something that's more accessible.   I recall reading about some products that aren't sold outside of Japan (makeup), and I remember making a note to myself that I should get them when I go but I can't seem to remember. Anyone?   So far (just so we don't duplicate) I have my eyes on -Kate mascara base -Kate cream blush (that comes in a jar) -Jill Stuart blush (just because it's so pretty)  -Majorica majorca mascar   Lastly any tips on good stores, getting around, places to see? Any suggestions are highly appreciated!    Last lastly, any other non-makeup related must buys?    Thanks tons!

I really like the urban decay primer potion but I'm curious to try the new eye primer by smashbox. Has anyone tried it? Is it simular to UD?

    There was someone who was going to do a foils/small sample TSB. I do not believe that person is still going to do it. If they are, I apologize and will not do one. I have been in two boxes and loved it but I have never started one. If anyone is still interested, I am willing to try to start  one. We can use the same rules from the other TSB. Please let me know if anyone is interested. Also we need to decide if we want to do this with a small flat rate box (I believe shipping is around $6.00) or a medium flat rate box (I believe shipping is around 13.00). If you are going to participate, please be prepared for the shipping costs! This box is open for US shipping only. Shipping becomes more expensive for Canada.   Once we decide if we want to do a small or medium box I will post pics of what I will start the box out with. If at that time someone decides they don't like what I am starting the box out with just let me know. I want this to be fun for all.   Once I get the box back I will go through it & give the leftover items to the local youth group who works with the homeless shelters in Fredericksburg VA.

Hi ladies, I'm wondering if anyone else has the same problem as I do with the liptars? They're so pigmented, long lasting, and the colors are amazing , but it's so messy! It's so hard to put on sometimes and you really have to be patient in my opinion. It's also really drying so I'm trying to decide if it's worth the hassle.  xoxo, Kelly

I know I'm late posting this but did you guys see this? This looks so cool it's gonna be in the May box but something about they can't afford to place such a big order they are asking you to preorder for May now!  Here are the options: They are doing something like kickstarter it's called crowdfunding and I'm seriously thinking of preordering it. What do you guys think?

I have very dark circles under my eyes and I've been using a drugstore concealer to hide them but I've never been really satisfied with it. It's extremely noticeable and settles in the creases under my eyes. What's a good under eye concealer that is potent without looking cakey and will last?

First off, I have NEVER used foundation in my life. And I have 6 different types from different brands in my loves list. I NEED some help at finding out which is the best for starters. The brands and types are: BUXOM Show Some Skin Foundation, BENEFIT Hello Flawless Foundation, MUFE HD Invisible Foundation, UD NAKED Foundation, KVD Lock-it Foundation, and BOBBI BROWN Stick Foundation. I already have the correct colors for each one. WHICH ONE IS THE BEST FOR BEGINNER FOUNDATION USERS?

I have severe acne and scarring, which leaves almost "craters'' when I put on foundation. I've always used BareMinerals "Fairly Light" in Matte but I found that it doesn't provide the full coverage I need and comes off very easily. I'm looking for a good foundation that provides full coverage. Regardless of price, what would be the best foundation for severe acne, scarring, oil and redness? I've tried tarte's new clay foundation and liked its coverage but the color isn't my favorite and leaves my skin looking a bit oily. Recommendations? Thanks!

Love love LOVE the color of YSL Rouge Volupte's Extreme Coral #15! I'm running low on it and would like to find if there are any dupes out there before possibly splurging again.     *photos from Style My Closet blog*

Have you seen today's article on Kim Kardashian in Paris wearing 'very little makeup'? I saw it and thought, I can name six products she's using right now, that is not very little makeup.
