I'm making this thread because I simply don't want to create a new thread for every little question that pops into my head, nor do I think that most questions need a separate topic. I had previously just dropped whatever random question that came to mind into the Random Thread (thanks jemly!), but I had been thinking about starting this for a while and figured I'd give it a shot to see if it could be of any use. I'm well aware that the people who could best utilize this thread will likely remain completely oblivious to it, but if it can consolidate even a small fraction of questions -- and maybe even generate some interesting conversations both beauty and non-beauty related -- that seems worthwhile. Official thread mascots: The Curious Puppies. Official thread anti-mascot: Lucille Bluth. It probably would've been wise of me to have a relatively inane question to use as an example and kick this thread off... Well, since I apparently don't have any pressing questions, I'll start with this two-parter: What's your favorite drug store nail polish shade AND which official mascot puppy is your favorite? Bonus/Extra Credit: What's it's name?
We've all felt the pain of those items that we would have gotten, should have gotten but now must pay way to much to buy from re-sellers. Maybe collective BT minds can identify (while still in stock) the limited edition must haves. My recents...the Dior Nude illuminating powder (spring 2016) is a pass. The Chanel Ribbon blush spring 2016) is a maybe. The YSL Gypsy Opale and Indie Jaspie (face powder and eye shadow) sold out within hours of the YSL site pre-release (it just went live on NM). Anyone have any thoughts on currently available or soon to be limited editions?
As a longtime Hourglass lover and addict I figured it was time BT had a dedicated thread to one of our/my favorite brands!

Since Glossier launched its Phase 2 set today, I thought it would be a good time to start a thread for the brand. Plus, I'm a bit obsessed with its products. I have a referral link (you get 20% off, PM me for it). $5 off $25 order, expires 7/27: SUMMER16 . Phase 2 consists of a sheer matte lipstick, concealer, and tinted brow gel.
Ladies (and gentlemen!) Since Canada seems to be getting different/fewer brands added to the website, and any cross-border new releases seem to be several days to weeks later than US releases, I thought we could use our own 'what's new/found in the wild' post. Please feel free to share any new products/brands you find on the Canadian site here.
Okay, I can't help it!! So my friend is really intrigued by this product. She lives in the Philippines and I buy stuff for her from here when it's not available there. Now there are some people selling this "Urban Decay All Nighter Foundation" - and I'm kinda baffled because I have never heard of this! They claim that it's not yet released and kind of prototype thing... but I'm so not believing that. I think it's fake... but your thoughts? Ever encountered this? ADD : And they said this is from Canada?
I am currently not in the US and thus I cannot actually go and try out the foundation.. so I need your help! I use the shade 1N1 ivory nude for estee lauder double wear. What color would be a close match?
So I just recently discovered Lush Cosmetics. I was wondering what some of the "Must Have" products were. Currently, I'm thinking about trying their 'Oatifix' and 'Rosy Cheeks' masks and their 'D'Fluff' shaving soap. Any other products I should look at?
It's been suggested to me that a cream or serum with both Vitamin C and Niacinamide could help lighten some slight melasma on my lip and cheek. Does anyone know of a cream or serum like this? Thank you!
Hi! I have incredibly fair skin and have been on the hunt for a foundation that does not cause flashback. Even the foundations that people say do not cause flashback, cause flashback on me. I don't know if it is because of my fair skin or something else but I am trying to find a fix to the problem. What foundations/powder foundations do you use that do not cause flashback? Any advice or great foundations you have heard do not cause flashback? Thanks!
Hopefully I am not stepping on any toes with the No-buy thread or P10P of the past- but I know I require inspiration to use up long neglected products and have never actively sought to finish something up. It can be thrilling! It's almost as good as buying new product, right?* Feel free to join me in forcibly integrating products I should probably just throw away into my routine in an effort to finish them off. Pick 5 products (doesn't need to be full size, baby steps) and begin! My 5 Pan Challenge: 1. Chanel Rouge Gabrielle 2. Benefit 'That Gal' highlighter 3. Glossier face mist 4. MAC eyeshadow quad from circa 1912 5. Dr. Jart Cermadin day tint deluxe sample (*Wrong)
Does the Nurse Jamie Acellerator have universal voltage for travelling? I believe that it is not cordless and has to be plugged in for use. Also how does it compare with Nuface Trinity - same technology? just as effective?
I was looking to buy a new foundation and just realized that Lancôme Teint Idole Ultra 24H Long Wear Foundation 's price differs depending on shade (possible glitch?). Other than the possibility that a certain shade sells out more is there another reason? Certain sizes of clothing sell out more at stores but it doesn't mean they charge more that size...
I've been a VIB for a few years now, and my local Sephora is within walking distance of that "other" brand. I've heard rave reviews about their rewards program, most especially about their generous giving of free product with each new level reached and not samplers. Today, I headed to my Sephora store for the VIB event, got my bag loaded up, and then...went to Ulta. I was actually there to get a tube of NYX lip gloss since I've heard so much about it, but I went through the whole store out of pure curiosity. The verdict? While Ulta does carry drugstore brands and their rewards are pretty lofty in comparison...Sephora has my heart. Ulta felt too "superstore-ish". No offense, but a little...below...the standard and prestige of Sephora. So, Sephora, heed our call! Amp up our VIB rewards. Tidy up the shelves and demos in your stores (our store is a tad lacking in that dept.). And, keep up the great work! = )
Haven't seen it in Sephora stores since 2009. Did they axe the line or something... Cargo was such a great little company with gorgeous colors and such innovative ideas; the prices where pretty decent for what you paid for too. Those quads they sold had huge eyeshadow pans and the best pigmentation by far, all for only 28 bucks! Hard to find anything to match that. One eyeshadow at MAC costs almost 19 dollars in Canada... So you know I'm on the hunt for any deals I can come across elsewhere, without forking it out for MAC. Does anyone know what happened to the line...
Just wanted to take this opportunity to give a little organic love and shout out @WanderBeauty . My Exquisite Eye Liquid Eyeshadow in the shade Mocha arrived yesterday in the mail, adorably wrapped in black and white striped tissue paper, even. Of course I'm much too impatient to have thought to take a picture, but thankfully my quick-thinking boyfriend thought to document the process: Okay, that may or may not be me... but I believe everyone who participated in the "Name Our Shades" thread a while back will be receiving something (fingers crossed for you, Canada). So I'm sure someone who is significantly more composed upon receiving new toys in the mail can document. Haven't had a chance to try it out yet, but really looking forward to giving it a test drive! So thank you again to @WanderBeauty for including us BTers in your naming process and spreading the love!
Could anyone help me locate a good, reasonably priced dupe for Clinique's Up-Lighting Liquid Illuminator in the shade Bronze? My mom uses it, but it's been discontinued recently and she's trying to find a replacement for it. Any and all suggestions will be appreciated. Thanks!
Love recommendations on what you're loving right now from Ulta (even if it doesn't fit my criteria below, always fun to hear what you're loving!)... What I'm looking for: *BEST SELF TANNER SOLD AT ULTA? I like a dark self tan that is NOT orange of course, not heavily scented (if the DHA chemical smell is there or it smells like coconut those are OK, I just don't want heavily perfumed/floral). Dries quickly and non streaking are my other criteria. I am also looking for powder facial color cosmetic type products (blush, hl, etc.), or eye products (shadow, mascara). I love eye crayons/sticks for summer, although I guess at some point I will be saturated lol. I've been eyeing the new Urban Decay highlighters!... I can't use cream or liquid products (like foundation, cream blush) because of skin sensitivities, and I have my Bare Minerals HG foundation . I also can't use much if any skincare right now because I'm on a derm regimine for adult hormonal acne (ugh!). I can choose my own cleanser, although right now my Glytone is treating me pretty well - open to cleanser suggestions. Acne (hormonal) prone skin at the moment, otherwise 'normal' to slightly oily, and sensitive to perfumes/scents. I need moisturizer but it has to be glycerine and silicone (dimeth and other types) free, so I've been getting that at Lush! On my wish list is one skin item, Koh Gen Do wipes for pre/post yoga but unfortunately not sold at Ulta darnit! Most other wipes - Purity, Bare Minerals super irritate my skin even the ones for sensitive skin, but if other peeps have good Ulta sensitive skin wipe recs (Murad or the Ulta Micellar water ones?) I'd take those! THANKS FOR YOUR SUGGESTIONS! Here are the possibilities on my list so far: - Possibly self tanner, although I was going to try Tancueticals which I don't think is sold at Ulta. - Possibly one or more of the new UD higlighters - Larger foam hair rollers for summer - UD Moondust shadows - Wipes or Micellar Wipes (ulta, simple) - Have to go swatch the new ABH shadows you all recommended!
A thread dedicated for those OMG ITS BACK IN STOCK! moments. Because everyone's keeping an eye out for sumpin' and who wants to keep an eye on a bajillion threads (even though there probably still will be).
Does anyone know a similar site? Reviews made by experts and with more brands? I feel that Paula's choice is not updated and there so many brands that are missing... Any ideas? I do love Paula's choice reviews, more o less they give you a professional overview of the product, and so much info about ingredients. Help! Have a great day everyone! XX
