Hey Beauties- We have ALOT of threads around here for Tom Ford products. I figured I'd start one thread where we can update each other on items as they come out or we see them available.    For all my UK'ers, or people willing to pay for shipping from the UK, Harrods has Softcore and Nude Dip from the Fall collection available right now. Happy Shopping!

NEWS, UPCOMING COLLECTIONS, DISCUSSIONS AND SWATCHES!   I was surprised there wasn't a dedicated thread for the brand especially since they have really upped their game recently. So since pretty much every brand has a thread I thought to start one for Tarte!   They have been slaying with the recent launches and truly on a roll with more amazing products to come!         
Face
I start off my daily routine by priming my face with the pur correcting prep and perfect primer. Then I go in with my too faced born this way foundation and blend it out with a damp beauty blender. I conceal my under-eyes, chin, cupids bow, bridge of nose and center of forehead using my naked skin concelear. Lastly I set my face using the laura mercier translucent setting powder with a damp beauty blender. When I get home from school (8 hours) my foundation has separated and is patchy. I have combination skin also. Is it because I don't wash, mostiurize and exfoliate in the mornings? I'm good at washing my face at night, but not in the mornings. Is it because of that or is it my foundation or primer?  help please my foundation looks terrible!!

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!

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! ************************************************** ******* WHERE TO BUY Sephora Muse Beauty Pro Beauty Bay Beautylish Alcone Frends Beauty ************************************************** *******   NEW - COMING SOON   Bijoux Royal 09 - eye shadow palette Available now on Muse Beauty Pro Sept 9th.On Sephora.COM Early-Mid Sept on Sephora.CA Spoiler (Highlight to read) Blush Palettes 3 Blush Palettes 1 Highlight and Sculpting Available now at Muse Beauty Pro Spoiler (Highlight to read)     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).

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).

Hey Beauty Talk Babes! Today it’s all about illumination perfection. Highlighting/strobing is not going away anytime soon -- and we don’t think it ever should.  Seriously, what better way is there to instantly take your complexion to 100? Our Custom Enhancer Drops are liquid highlighters that enable you to add a luminous  or bronzing effect to your favorite liquid beauty products.     These babies are available in 6 global shades (4 Illuminators and 2 Matte bronzers, swatches at the bottom of this article). Choose your favorites, and get ready for some major makeup experimentation to achieve the glow of your dreams! 1. Create the Ultimate Strobe #NoShade   Let’s clear things up:   Strobing is the technique. Non-touring is the trend.   And what is non-touring again? Glad you asked! It’s #NoShade for your complexion. Instead of defining the contours of your face with a darker foundation color, you’ll be sculpting your face with layers of light.     Here’s how: Depending on your skin tone, choose a shade to use as a highlighter (see swatches at the bottom of this article).   Strobe the high points of your face: the bridge of your nose, the apples of your cheeks, underneath your eyebrow arch and cupid’s bow (right above the top point of your upper lips).  This technique will really make each one of those features pop!     NikkieTutorials does an amazing job using our CELESTIAL shade of Custom Enhancer Drops for strobing in her latest video: https://youtu.be/lNNkLJ1GJoA Show us how YOU do #NoShade by using this hashtag and tagging @coverfx. 2. Get a luminous foundation finish #LayeredLuminosity   We all have that one holy grail foundation that we keep coming back to, no matter what. Grab that, and add in 1-2 drops of your favorite shade of Custom Enhancer Drops to give it a more luminous finish. Adding these drops will give you a lit-from-within, subtly glamorous look.  Who doesn’t want that?    If you have oily skin, but can’t stay away from the luminous trend--don’t worry, we got you. Keep your t-zone matte with your normal foundation and our Custom Blot Drops. Then mix 1-2 drops of the liquid highlighters with your foundation and apply to other areas of your face such as your cheekbones. Jaclyn Hill does it best! Watch her video:  https://youtu.be/vWAsq-zJMJY      Show us how you achieve #LayeredLuminosity by using this hashtag and tagging @coverfx. 3. Body Envy #Glowtion   Why should your face have all the fun? Turn your body lotion into #Glowtion for a sexy, all-over glow. That tan you worked so hard for? This is its best friend.     Add multiple drops of the Custom Enhancer Drops in a shade that matches your skintone to your body moisturizer.  Mix well and then apply your arms and legs for an oh-so pretty radiant glow.  Highlight your collarbone for an extra pop. You’ll be turning heads all day   Show us how you use #Glowtion to glow all-over by using this hashtag and tagging @coverfx. Pro tip: Take your glow on the go with our cream highlighting Click Sticks! Shades CELESTIAL and CANDLELIGHT from our Custom Enhancer Drop collection are available in Click Stick form. Get the same glow, in a more portable cream stick format. 4. Get that beach babe look, anywhere #BronzedBeauty A gorgeous, sun-kissed bronzed look is just a few drops away with our two Matte Liquid Bronzers! Unlike our highlighters, Sunkissed and Sunset offer a more matte finish.  If you just want a hint of sun added to your foundation use Sunkissed. For a more dramatic bronze use Sunset.   The more drops you add, the more depth of color you will get. Show us your #BronzedBeauty look by using the hashtag and tagging @coverfx. 5. Contour with a touch of sparkle #ContourCommitted   Not ready to give up the contour? Here’s a softer way to contour but still remain #ContourCommitted   Using a blending sponge, dab and blend either Sunkissed (light -medium skin tones) or Sunset (medium-medium deep skin tones) around your hairline and under the apples of your cheeks to add depth and dimension to your facial structure. You can use alone (make sure you use sparingly to start) or mix in with anything liquid, whether it’s a primer, liquid concealer, foundation, facial oil or moisturizer.   Check out this video from MissTBeauty where she uses shade Candlelight to contour: https://youtu.be/-2u_QUG3bp4 .   Show us your #ContourCommitted looks by using this hashtag and tagging @coverfx. 6. Add shimmer to your lids and lips #RebelEyes   Shh, this is off-the-record.  If you’re feeling extra rebellious, you can follow in AmysMakeupBox's ( https://www.instagram.com/p/BIYsahkg-Iz/)  footsteps and use Custom Enhancer Drops as shimmery eyeshadow.  Simply apply the Custom Enhancer Drops shade of your choice onto your eyelid with your finger or a brush.  Just don’t say we told you so   Look for still more excitement?  Try a shimmery ombre lip as well by applying the drops after lipstick for a glowing, voluminous pout.   Show us your #RebelEyes looks by using this hashtag and tagging @coverfx.   --- Now that you know all 6 to use Custom Enhancer Drops--tell us, how many have you tried or will now try?  Have you used these drops in other creative ways we’ve missed here?  Enlighten us!

Hi Beauty Talkers! We're delighted to welcome the newest addition to our multitasking makeup essential family, Wanderlust Powder Foundation.  We’re so excited to share our journey in creating this product.   Why powder foundation?   Co-founder Divya Gugnani: Pretty much immediately after we launched our Flash Focus Hydrating Foundation we got calls, emails, social media posts, and a barrage of inquiries about when we would have a powder foundation. A powder foundation? I didn’t get it. I hadn’t used powder foundation on my face since I was 16 and struggling with t-zone issues and teenage acne. But Lindsay was a believer….   Co-founder Lindsay Ellingson: I've always used powder foundation to mask my hyperpigmentation which, for me, is caused by melasma. I've struggled with it for years. When we launched Wander Beauty it became my mission to develop a talc-free powder that would cover imperfections without looking cakey, my goal was to create a powder foundation that actually looks like skin!   But really, is it full coverage?   LE: The first thing you will notice about our powder is the luxurious ultra-fine feel which translates to the most natural looking, flawless complexion. It's so lightweight on your skin but highly pigmented so it doesn't feel like a mask. One swipe of our foundation and my pigmentation is covered. Our goal is to enhance your natural beauty not cover it!   But is it a multitasker? Is it an essential?   DG: At Wander Beauty we focus on creating multitasking makeup essentials and for real this is... Any special ingredients?   LE: We knew we wanted to make it talc-free so it wouldn’t look ashy or give a white cast in photos. We also enriched it with our favorite skin-loving ingredients from around the globe:   Aloe Leaf Extract (Korea) – moisturizes skin and restores suppleness Hibiscus Flower Extract (France) – evens skin tone, increases elasticity, and protects against free radical damage Honeysuckle Flower Extract (Korea) – has antiseptic and anti-inflammatory properties Jojoba Esters (United States) – promotes skin healing with antimicrobial properties Safflower Flower Extract (Korea) – contains linoleic acid to unclog pores and stimulate regeneration of new cells   What about the applicator? DG: I can’t stand dirty, makeup-filled sponges that break apart. So, we created an antimicrobial rubicell sponge in Korea that deposits our silky powder evenly for full coverage. It’s reusable and easy to wash with antibacterial soap and water.     How do you wear it?   DG: I wear Wanderlust in Medium on clean moisturized skin on days when I have meetings from morning to night or when I have a big event. It lasts till I take it off and gives me coverage while still looking natural. It’s my skin, only with an airbrushed filter ;-)   LE: I like to wear Wanderlust in Light as a finishing powder over our Flash Focus Hydrating Foundation stick. It's gives me just the right amount of coverage with a radiant finish.The great thing about our powder is that it's so versatile, it looks just as great as a foundation on its own for a more matte finish.     Here's the link:  http://www.sephora.com/wanderlust-powder-foundatio n-P411529?skuId=1856848&icid2=products%20grid 41152...

  In the vein of the recent Tom Ford Updates and Chanel Updates threads, I thought I would start one for Burberry! I think they have had a ton of great releases recently (new eye shadow formula, kisses lippies). Burberry is one of the most consistently good designer lines in my opinion.   what items have you liked recently from Burberry? Anything you are waiting for or have your eye on?   edit: replacing Spring 2016 with upcoming Fall 2016

Do not take all of one category from the box. For example, do not take all the palettes or masks. If you’re not sure if an item is appropriate, post the item and ask the group. Allowed in the box:  Mid to high end products (think brands sold at Sephora, The Bay, Nordstrom, etc). Anything that is sealed (as long as it fits with the other guidelines) Skin care items in tubes & bottles. Jars only allowed if it's sealed or unopened.

Packaging & Shipping All participants must provide a tracking number for their shipment, posted to the thread upon receipt. Package things carefully (bubble wrap or tissue paper if possible) and put things in labeled Ziploc bags. Try to leave the TSB in better condition than you found it Items that are more fragile (like perfume bottles) should be bubble wrapped individually Calculating Values: New items: full price Clearance items: full original price unless they are long-term residents of the clearance section (i.e. OCC lip tars in original packaging) Used 1x or swatched: 90% value (original price x 0.90) Lightly used: 80% value (original price x 0.80)  This applies when an item was used more than once but at least 90% of the product is remaining. Deluxe samples: calculate based off largest size available of said product. For example, if a deluxe sample is 0.5oz, and the full size is 2 oz and worth $60, then the deluxe sample is worth $15.  These must be new, untested, unswatched. Courtesies: Don't put in anything unsanitary! (any product that you “dunk” a wand into or you dip your fingers into (like lip gloss or mousse blush) if they’re not new and unused. These cannot be sanitized. Same thing goes for rollerballs.

This includes lipsticks, palettes, blushes, etc. No reserving 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 even they are swatched or used!! Swatched/used items must be labeled as such. All opened items must be cleaned/sanitized prior to their addition to the box Sanitizing consists of spraying the item with a makeup sanitizer, or making your own with half parts 70% alcohol and water. Try not to put in LARGE full sized items, like large bottles over 8 oz. This box becomes very full, making it is harder for the person repacking and forces them to take something they may not want or use.

It seems high time for a separate thread for the Marc Jacobs Beauty collection (I checked, but didn't find one!). This thread will be the place to post sneak peeks and information about new products and special collections and also to generally discuss our interest in and experience with MJ beauty products. If you are an existing fan or have questions about a particular product or want to explore the brand for the first time, feel free to join the discussion. To start off, I recently purchased the LE Style Eye Con No. 20 Holiday Palette during the VIB sale, but I have yet to use it or even swatch the colors on myself. It is currently still in "sacred relic" mode in my mind, but I'm also intimidated as it is my first ever large palette purchase. I'm not an eyeshadow expert by any means, in knowledge nor in application. I would like to begin this discussion by inviting those of you who have this palette to post eye looks that you have created with it. I need some ideas!     And of course feel free to post about anything else related to MJ beauty should you be so inclined! I'm curious to know everyone's experience with the brand.... Which products do you absolutely love and would recommend to anyone and everyone, and which products just didn't do it for you?
Face
I have had the issue with my foundation oxidizing and i have been on the search for a good silicone based primer but can't find one that works im wondering what are some of your favorite silicone based primers?! 
Makeup
I'm looking for something to add to my makeup to help illuminate my skin. My skin tone is fair/medium and I have a lot of freckles on my cheeks, so I have to be careful what I put on or else my makeup will look too 'caked on' or 'powdery'. I just want something lightweight that will add a natural glow/brightening effect to my look.

I have seen lots of new threads pop up devoted to specific brands and thought I would get some other opinions and ideas about the best of becca.     I just in the last year have really fallen in love with this brand. We newest favs are backlight priming filter and blush in flowerchild. I feel like shimmering skin perfector is a must have for every makeup lover. I love using the backlight targeted colour corrector on my dark under eye circles.   I have though about trying foundation anyone have any suggestions?what are your favorites?

Nails
I'm loving this nail polish from Nails Inc. I used the superfood base coat, Nailkale in Victoria and finished it off with the 45 second top coat.  The color is so rich and easy to apply.

A place to discuss new, indie and not so talked about brands. There's a few brands I'd like to know more about but didn't want to start a thread for each so decided to start a thread for all those brands that we don't often hear about.
