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!

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!

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?

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.   
Face Q&A
I have such complicated needs for my foundation. My skin is EXTREMELY oily nearly all over my face, mostly my t-zone. However, around my nostrils, my chin, my lips, and even right below my cheekbones on occasion, I break out in dry patches especially during winter. I was using the Lancome 24 hour foundation, but I found it would just cling to my dry patches and I think it dried them more. Foundations always seem to get so cakey on me, even when I apply a minimal amount, and they break down on my skin. I love a full coverage foundation, I don't have any bad skin issues other than the occasional pimple and some large pores on my cheeks and nose, but I really really like a fully covered flawless face, as if I have an insta filter on.Even a medium but build able foundation can work for me. I am so sick of the holy grail foundation search, please any suggestions

In light of the upcoming launch of Tom Ford Beauty at Sephora, I was selected as one of the lucky recipients of a very generous gift from Sephora and Tom Ford Beauty. I would like to dedicate a thread to the luxury beauty brand and it's impending Soleil 2016 launch.     I’ve dabbled in a fair bit of Tom Ford makeup and I’m definitely a fan, but I’ve tried surprisingly little from their summer collections, so I’m very much looking forward to testing these out.  Thank you so much to both Sephora and Tom Ford Beauty for such a lovely gift!   Please feel free to share about any products you've tried and loved, cherished or can’t live without, or even the ones you’ve disliked, hated or given away.   This is an information sharing thread so all opinions are welcome!   Mustique (left) Cala di Volpe (right)   Swatches:   Comparisons: Spoiler (Highlight to read) TF Blushes (Lovelust, Ravish, Afternooner, Flush) TF Highlights (Top photo: Moodlight top, Afternooner, Moodlight bottom / Bottom photo: Softcore, Afternooner, Stroked) Bronzer swatches (Guerlain Terracotta Terre D'ete, Afternooner, UD Paranoid, CT Bronze & Glow Dark) TF lipsticks (Henry, Cala di Volpe, Gustavo, Guillermo) TF lipsticks (Spanish Pink, Mustique, Indian Rose, Casablanca) TF Blushes (Lovelust, Ravish, Afternooner, Flush)TF Highlights (Top photo: Moodlight top, Afternooner, Moodlight bottom / Bottom photo: Softcore, Afternooner, Stroked)Bronzer swatches (Guerlain Terracotta Terre D'ete, Afternooner, UD Paranoid, CT Bronze & Glow Dark)TF lipsticks (Henry, Cala di Volpe, Gustavo, Guillermo)TF lipsticks (Spanish Pink, Mustique, Indian Rose, Casablanca)

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?

  Lindsay Ellingson: Hi Sephora beauties!  I'm so excited to chat with all of you and share a little about Wander Beauty, a new internationally inspired beauty experience I Co-founded that launches on  Sephora.com (US & Canada) tomorrow!  I’ve been modeling for over a decade and been so fortunate to work with everyone from Valentino to Victoria’s Secret and the most talented beauty experts all over the world.  It was the best beauty school one could have. I've sat in the makeup chair for countless hours, and absorbed all of the best application tricks and beauty trends.  I've tried and tested everything and know what works. With so much traveling, I need products that can take me from day to night with ease.  You would be surprised how fast I get myself out the door with just a few of our easy to use multi-taskers.  Wander Beauty is made for women who are constantly on the go.   Divya Gugnani: I’ve been obsessed with makeup since I was a little girl and loved to use my mom’s lipsticks as crayons. She, of course, did not like that as much as I did. I’ll admit I buy more than I use but I just love to experiment. Nothing excites me more than spanning the globe on a new adventure whether it is scuba diving in Honduras or gorilla trekking in east Africa. I’ve been bitten by the travel bug and I love to explore the beauty secrets of other cultures, passed down from generations, or discover unique international ingredients and their potent powers.  My background is in finance and business but I’m truly living my dream as a Co-founder of Wander Beauty.   When Lindsay and I first met years ago, we shared a common need...to simplify our beauty routines. As a working mother of two young kids (21 months and almost 4) I’ve got five minutes to get myself together and out the door. Less is more and I wanted a few key things that could go double duty and delivery a multitude of looks as well as travel with me during my busy day.   LE: We’re on a mission to downsize your makeup bag yet we understand the need for luxurious, skincare-infused formulas that deliver real results.  My favorite part of being Creative Director is developing innovative products that work with your skin and skincare, not against it. Our formulas are cruelty free and free of parabens, mineral oil, phthalates and synthetic fragrance.   DG/LE: So, what’s is Wander Beauty? Multitasking Makeup Essentials Internationally Inspired Innovation Color to Be Carried Wander Beauty is for real women, who want fuss-free, fool-proof, multi-functional makeup that makes them feel confident everyday, wherever life takes them.   LE: We launched with one hero product, our On-the-Glow Blush and Illuminator. I like to call it summer in a stick. It’s the ultimate beauty enhancer with countless ways to wear it! I use the dual ended cream blush and highlighter to strobe and add a natural flush to my cheeks every morning. This and a little mascara and I'm ready for my day.         DG: My personal favorite is our Wanderout Dual Lipstick with a bright on one side (with the arrow on top) and a neutral on the other. Wanderberry and Barely There is my combo of choice. I’ll admit, sometimes I mix them both and create my own shade! The formula is infused with ingredients from eight different countries like Marula Oil (South Africa), Castor Seed Oil (Japan), Coco Seed Butter (Netherlands), Mango Seed Butter (India) and more. From my work tote to my dinner clutch it’s with me wherever I go.   DG/LE: So, we are starting this thread to share our story and how we created this beauty experience but most importantly to connect with all of you and open the dialogue for your feedback and questions. So, tell us: if you could create one beauty multi-tasker what would it be?

Hi all,   I hope someone can help me as I purchased a KVD shade and light eyeshadow palette off a fb makeup page and believe it may be fake. I did ask prior to purchasing the item and the seller assured me she purchased it from Sephora.   I live in Australia where we currently only have 3 Sephora stores BOOOO none which are close enough for me to compare the two. I have done some research online but have not been able to find out enough to determine whether it is real or not. I have compared it to my KVD shade and light contour palette which i know is 100% authentic as i purchased it from Sephora Sydney last year.   The quality of the packaging mirror size and lettering seem the same the only difference seems to be the serial numbers the font is different and one is longer then the other but I'm unsure if this is because one is a face and the other is an eye palette. The quality also seems questionable however i can't say i have swatched the real thing but again just comparing it to my shade and light contour it doesn't seem the same quality.   I have attached two photos the top is the contour palette and the other is the eye. If anyone could please help put my mind at ease that would be amazing xx 
Lips
Anyone else have an allergic reaction on their lips to Bite Beauty products? I know they have all natural ingredients, which is why I'm perplexed. I've tried two different products from them and end up with eczema-like cuts on my lips.

Hi, I am interested in purchasing the Anatasia Beverly Hills brow definer but I am unsure on which shade is best suited me and was wondering if you were able to help.
Makeup
Does anyone here ever throw their makeup away per recommended guidelines? Below seems to be the standard suggested by experts, but aside from mascara I just don’t know. I feel like I’d be better off opening a window and throwing my money out of it. If the product looks, smells, and applies fine - do you ever toss it because of age?    PRODUCT WHEN TO TOSS Powders (including blushes, bronzers, and shadows) - Two years Cream shadows and blushes - 12-18 months Oil-free foundation  - One year Cream compact foundation  - 18 months Concealers - 12-18 months Lipstick and lip liner - One year Lip gloss - 18-24 months Pencil eyeliner - Two years Liquid or gel eyeliner - Three months Mascara - Three months

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! ************************************************** ******* NEW PRODUCTS Theory palettes - Cashmere, Minx, Chroma (6 pan) Ribbons Boheme 02 (12 pan)   Theory palettes & Ribbons now available on Sephora US & CANADA Can also be found at Muse Beauty (new lower shipping rate for Canada!)   More releases coming up this year! Will post when I have more info   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).

Makeup
IT Cosmetics is coming to Sephora!  So, (even though it's super early) I thought I'd start a thread for it.    What are you excited to see on Sephora's shelves?
Lips
Dior's lip glow is a favorite of mine, I go through about one a year and I absolutely love it.     It's a little cost prohibitive to try all the colors, so I wish there were something cheaper I could try that's similar.   I love the scent, the spf, the moisturization, and the light barely there color I get from lip glow.   Any suggestions?
Face
Hi there,   I'm pretty new to makeup...The only thing I can really do as far as makeup is Concealer, Foundation and lipstick.. And that's it. I want to get past that and get into more things like eyeshadow and such, but I really want to get into contouring and highlighting..   Now, a couple of questions I have is, does your foundation match your skins undertone? (horrible way of putting it lol) But I mean, I have like a medium cool concealer from ulta, cool foundation from Ulta all of my products are "cool" does that mean I have a cool undertone?   If so, I was looking at the Black up contouring stick, (I suppose your suppose to pick one that matches your skintone?) So I'm guessing i'm a medium or a medium light? (I'm not sure!) and if I do have a cool undertone, is there a color correcter (for my deep set circles under my eyes plus that line..ugh) that would go well with my skintone?   Also, do you have to use bronzer and blush once you highlight and contour? and my last question is, is it foundation,color corrector concealer, my regular concealer, highlight then contour?     I'm sorry if my questions are everywhere, I just dont know where to begin...or what colors would look good on me! I don't want to spend hundreds on the same products to try to find my perfect match lol.   So..any product recommendations or my skin tone? when it comes to highlighting-contouring and color correcting? Since I'm new to this, I wish I had a list of everything you need lol :/        
Eyes
I need a whold semester on classes in eyeliner to every nail it halfway one day and not take 45min.   What are some recommendations, I have dark brown hair and eyes and lighter skin.  So black for the color.  I always basically stuck with the drugstore glide on pencils with regular pencils tugging so much, and liquid not great for a shaky hand.  recently tried a kajal i swore by, but it seems a bit dry in less than a week.  easy to get on tho thick.  I nonstop hear about maybelline gel point and use brush in kit.  my hands wouldn't allow me the chance to succeed.     Also, a lot seem to get rubbed of after im done applying mascara.  have yet to find eye end or drugstore that stays
