What's New On The Site Today, Canada?
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.

The Question Thread: Because not all questions need their own thread.
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?

Sunday Riley Good Genes price change
Just wondering if anyone knows why the large size of Good Genes is now $200 (Canadian)? Seems a little fishy to raise the price right before the VIB sale.

I was going to purchase it but this has really turned me off and is now making me question if I want to keep purchasing from Sephora.

High End/Luxe MUST-HAVE Brushes?
I'm on a brush kick lately and I'm wondering what high-end and luxury brand brushes are TRULY worth the steep price.   I'm fairly set on foundation brushes, but I'm looking for just the right bronzer, blush, powder (I'd prefer 'big' and dense), and eyeshadow brushes.   I've tried a few Sephora brand, RT, and Ulta brand (when they still had their own line), but wanted to try more "heavy" feeling brushes especially with the sale going on!   Thanks for any advice!

Getting married in Hawaii - doing my own makeup advice/ideas/thoughts?
Hey all--   My wedding is in four short weeks, and I'm wavering on whether to pay to have my makeup done or do it myself. I'm not sure if this is the appropriate place to post, but as VIBs/VIBRs, I think you all probably have as extensive a makeup collection as I do. Hence, I need some advice from others who may be as obsessed as me.   What to buy for a makeup and hair kit with humidity being a big factor ? My hair will be half-up, lots of waves.  Any ideas would be appreciated!!  Esp. with the VIB sale coming up.   Should I do it myself?  I think  I do a pretty good job doing my makeup. Maybe? It's just my hobby, so I'm constantly testing/improving/refining techniques. I had a 'good' MUA do my engagement photo makeup, and I hate, hate my makeup in these pictures. I don't know if I can trust again. LOL  Has anyone done their own for a big event and were happier with that choice?   That said. There are two major things I struggle with: Undereye concealer not creasing, but I have mega dark circles.  I cover them well, which looks fine in pictures, but you can tell in-person. Applying false lashes - half the time one eye looks better than the other. Sunscreen is a HUGE must for me .  I'm fair-light skinned, and we're getting married on a beach in the afternoon.  Suggestions on brands/techniques to use that both layer well under makeup, considering high-humidity, and cause little flashback?  I use Dr. Jart Every Day Sun, among other sunscreens with chemical + mineral SPF.  Honestly, I use three sunscreens a day, layering them on different parts of my face.   Contouring . Being fair, I'm considering the new Benefit Hoola Lite bronzer.  Then I saw the Light-Medium Anastasia powder contour palette.  It looks quite nice. Advice?   Sorry for this long, self-serving post.  I'm just in a worry-about-everything mode, and I'm so indecisive...  Pics of me, for reference.  And my dress for ideas about shades to use.  The dress has a gold underlay, with ivory lace on top.

Sunday Riley: Which Oil?
Hello!   I am on the hunt for a new facial oil. I've been using the Kate Somerville Dilo oil in the evening and like it, but have been looking at the Sunday Riley line. Maybe either Luna or Juno?   I'm 37, I have pretty good skin (it's not dry nor particularly oily, no blotchiness, no acne to speak of). My main concern is anti-aging. I've never used a retinol product before. Don't you have to stay out of sun w/ retinol? I will be out in the sun playing tennis this summer so want to be careful about that (I wear sunscreen - SPF 50 or higher and a hat when I play).   Any thoughts on which would be best? Or maybe I should do Good Genes instead?

For those who don't know what this is, it stands for Korean Beauty!   Honestly, I'm surprised I don't see even more stuff posted about K-Beauty as it seems to be taking over right now.  I hear nothing but good things about their skincare, makeup, etc!   I recently got the Amorepacific cream as a 100 point perk and am really liking it for daytime moisture (although I think it may be better in the summer as I still feel a tad dry), and I hear good things about the Chosungah22 products which Sephora carries!   I also recently made a giant order through a Korean retailer called Jolse, can't wait to get my stuff!   Do you guys love K-Beauty? Do you have any reviews of stuff you've tried? I'm hoping to get this moving and that people will post in here regularly about skincare and cosmetics from Korea!

Sephora vs. Ulta - The Verdict
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! = )

My moisturizer was discontinued :( need suggestions
OK so last year I discovered the Peter Thomas Roth Cucumber Detox Bouncy Hydrating Gel, and it was 100% perfect for my issues. I have normal to dry skin, but I live in South Carolina and our summers get soooo hot and humid. In the summer months my skin gets... if not exactly truly oily , the humidity kind of gives me this oily film. Everything about the PTR gel was ideal for me... kept my skin hydrated, not too dry (a lot of oil free or oily skin moisturizers aren't enough for me even in summer) kept me fairly matte without aging me, acted as a great base for my makeup.   But now it's been discontinued! I would love suggestions especially from anyone familiar with the PTR who could maybe suggest something similar. More info: I'm 41, fair skinned, mild rosacea. In the humidity, it is very easy for my pores to feel congested so I prefer lighter weight products, but I do still have a little dryness. No SPF, I am allergic to most sunscreens (definitely nothing chemical like octinoxate etc, sometimes physical sunscreens are OK but I never know until I try, so I prefer to just avoid). Ideally I'm looking for a similar texture to the PTR, but overall something lightweight, slightly mattifying, not overly drying.   Thanks
