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!

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!

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!

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?

The Bobbi Brown thread.  Bobbi Brown was the first brand that got me excited about makeup.  So I'll always have a soft spot for BB.  And now Sephora has the amazing 25 year year palette. Note, the holiday lip shade is sold out on Nordstrom.  I'm going to be watching for it on Sephora's site.

We don't have a Laura Mercier Thread!  So I decided to start one after getting the Sephora highlighter palette.  Every holiday season, I buy some of LM's holiday offerings.  As I see them, I'll add them here.  Please, others feel free to do the same! And I love the highlighter palette.  It's small, but the highlighters are all gorgeous on.  And I like the packaging.

  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

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 Bijou Royal: http://www.sephora.com/viseart-eyeshadow-palette-P 391306?skuId=1861525   Blush palettes: http://www.sephora.com/blush-palette-P412347?skuId =1861509   Contour palette: http://www.sephora.com/viseart-highlight-sculpting -palette-P412348?skuId=1861517       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).

Spoiler (Highlight to read) Guidelines: Trade items that are equal in value and brand quality or better. For example, Dior for Guerlain would be a good trade, as would Too Faced for Tarte. Do not trade Dior for Tarte. Do not take more than you put in. Please ensure your trade is adding value to the box. Trade full sized items for full sized items. 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. Keep non-beauty related items to a minimum (please do not overload the box with makeup bags, cases, etc). 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. Post a picture and write info of what you took and left, with their condition and value – this way members can weigh in on the trades before shipping Include close up, open photos of any items that will be sealed that you cannot see the color through. 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. Exceptions can be made if someone really wants the item Must post photos of all swaps and wait for approval from the thread before sending the box to the next recipient. The box coordinator and 50% of participants should give the OK for your trade. Give the group 24 hours to review your trades and provide feedback.  Please contribute mid to high-end beauty products only. No drugstore items or Sephora brand. If you have questions or you are unsure of an item, ask! ***If an item in the box has been damaged in transit, please contact me as to what to do with it. And , as always, remember not to trade used items for new ones.   Thanks!   (adapted from "TSB Best Practices For the BT Community".  http://community.sephora.com/t5/Makeup/TSB-Best-Pr actices-for-the-BT-Community/m-p/2001133#M59515) Guidelines:Trade items that are equal in value and brand quality or better.

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?

Hi All!   This is probably a tl;dr, but here's the set-up: I have very fair, middle-aged skin and have rosacea. The derm has me use Metro cream in the morning after washing my face and another product in the evening after washing my face. I have an oily t-zone and the rest is normal and not dry, so I don't wear moisturizer over the Metro. I stick to oil-free products because my skin doesn't respond well to products with oil.     I generally use a primer over the Metro cream and then do one of two things: 1. one primer (Hourglass mineral primer) or two primers (Hourglass + Benefit Pore Professional),  dab on Estee Lauder Doublewear concealer, set with a light dusting of Shiseido loose powder, then spray on UD setting spray; OR  2. blend a bb-cream (too many to name) or foundation (Maybelline Fit Me or YSL Touche Eclat Radiance Awakening Foundation) over a primer, dab on concealer, set with loose powder, then spray on setting spray.   Here's the issue and it's driving me wild: Every concealer, primer, every bb cream, and every foundation I have tried - drugstore and higher end - slides off my face after 2 hours. The makeup will be creased into my smile lines and resisting around my nose and foreheads so that it doesn't look uniform and highlights the pores. It doesn't matter what combination of products I use: same scary result. Bah!    I wear face makeup to have a uniform canvas, to cover red spots and melasma here and there, and to hide large pores. I need to look professional and polished, but not overly made up. I've searched the Sephora boards and the web for recommendations for this particular issue, but everything I have found deals with either covering breakouts, hiding flushing, or overcoming a hot face. Happily those are not my issues. I welcome any help to finding a combination of makeup products that will stay put over Metro cream!! Thank you!

Hi! I've been using the same color eye shadows (dark olive, brownish) for a few years now and want to switch it up. I have blue eyes and a light complexion. I have a hard time finding the right color for me. What do you recommend? Also, I am looking for an everyday mascara with volume and length, but not clumpy. Thank you in advance!
