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?

Hi, I see that the NARS Soft Matte Complete Concealer is currently available for purchase.  However, the shade Custard appears to be missing.  Are you planning on stocking it soon? Would it be available at local stores?   Cheers!      *Edit: It seems to be available for the Canadian site.  When I try to add then switch to US site, it says cannot be shipped to the US.  Very odd!
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.

As a longtime Hourglass lover and addict I figured it was time BT had a dedicated thread to one of our/my  favorite brands!    Direct link to the Hourglass page on Sephora:   What are your favorite products from this line?   New at Sephora: GIRL Lip Stylo d=1892785&icid2=hourglass_whatsnew_us_carousel 4156...   Travel Size Ambient Lighting Powders (All Shades) 7723?skuId=1716414&icid2=hourglass_whatsnew_us_car ...     Vanish Seamless Finish Foundation Stick dation-stick-P410532?skuId=1827419&icid2=just_arri ...   Ambient Lighting Edit- Surreal Light al-light-P410774?skuId=1845668&icid2=products%20gr ...   Not Sold at Sephora:     Curator Lash Instrument       Curator Ascent Extended Wear Lash Primer     Curator Realist Defining Mascara Formula     
I have red patchy skin and uneven skin tone. What are some suggestions of what I can use that won't cause my skin to break out? I have combination skin but it's slightly sensitive because some products cause breakouts. I would love to not feel like I need to wear makeup every single day to get rid of the redness and unevenness. 
  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). 
I bought the ABH Concealer in a pot last month, and now it's sweating and it's smells really bad, like it's gone off or something. Has anyone else had this problem? When I contacted ABH, they just said that if I don't like the smell, I should return it. So I guess it's supposed to smell like rotten eggs or something?
At sephora, which ph adjusting toner should I look for? So far I have only heard about Belief. But I dont know if its ph is really low.  Any knowledgeable Korean skincare fans here?
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)
I have a lot of the free samples from what's the best way to store them? I always forget I have them and never use them so I would like to be better about that. Thanks
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. Heading into the holiday season the limited editions will likely be more extravagant and exciting.  I'm eyeing Burberry and Guerlain. Anyone have any thoughts on currently available or soon to be limited editions?   A lot of the holiday stuff is limited so I'm linking to the holiday thread as well : /HOLIDAY-2016/td-p/2454167  
ATTN Sephora USA! Carry this line! Thank you.     Spoiler (Highlight to read) This is rose petal blush. Rose petals are covered with blush powder which are then swirled together and applied. The color isn't that pigmented, but the lasting power is wonderful.   The Summer 2014 face color. Pressed powder in the shape of shells blend together to give the face a beautiful glow. They say each color can be used as an eyeshadow, but from what I've heard they're not pigmented enough on their own to work as an eye color.   Cream blusher.   Pressed cheek color. It comes in 20 refillable shades. Lasts a long, long time.   Liquid foundation   Loose powder. Comes in 4 shades including a sparkly one!   Beauty oil. I need that bottle. This is rose petal blush.

Hey guys, I had a pretty bad experience with the  Tsubaki Glotion . It was nice for a few weeks, but I started breaking out after continuously using it for months, and I've never really had a breakout before. I am really into the natural dewy look. I've tried BB creams but I barely need coverage, if any at all.  Do any of you have reccomendations for lotions that give you that dewy look that will last long,  or super light BB creams? Thanks!
hey y'all! I am trying to get into makeup more, but I have no idea what to buy. Can someone give me like 3-4 must haves that are reasonably priced? My skin is pretty oily but is clear, so I have really struggled with foundation. I just need like a crash course on makeup/several key products and how to apply them Thanks!
So I noticed this new line of skincare products that both Sephora and QVC is carrying. Has anyone here used any of their products or personally heard good/bad things about the brand? I thought about purchasing the lip balm they have just to try the brand out. It appears to be an all natural line (which I can appreciate). Thanks in advance!
Does anyone know why this was discontinued? For awhile it was on the Sephora site but said it couldn't be shipped to the US. I saw some in-store a few months ago but no longer AND it's not on the site anymore.   I did find it on the PTR site marked down to $12 (score) but I'm wondering why it seems to be discontinued. I love that stuff.
THIS might be a stupid question but is shower cream the same thing as shower gel? What about shower oil? Thanks
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! = )
I'm looking for the Geometricolor Palette Blockbuster, which was actually in my cart a few days ago, but today I log in to purchase it and it's all sold out! I was wondering if this was sold in-store anywhere in the Wasatch Range area in Utah (Ogden to SLC or SLC to Provo) and if I could pick it up there? Thank you
Ok, so this was YEARS ago, but I used to LOVE Hilary Duff's With Love perfume. Obviously they don't make this anymore, so I'm trying to see if anyone out there is familiar with that scent and can recommend to me the closest perfume that's available now.
I've realized lately that the prices I associate with different beauty products has gone up considerably. I'm sure it doesn't help being in an environment (BT ) where people are throwing $80 at an eyeshadow palette or $40 on a lipstick like that's the standard going rate and if you ever want to wear lipstick in life, it's going to run you $40+.    I know this isn't everyone's reality, and as someone who used to only wear one make-up item - mascara ($30 Chanel mascara, no less) - I pass absolutely no judgment on what anyone wants to spend on any item!   But I'm curious... Knowing that whatever price you've come to associate with an item, it reflects what you, and only you, expect to pay for that item - what rough price point you associate with different beauty items?     
Hello, I'm going to be receiving a brush set this Christmas and I'm not sure whether to opt for a set from Zoeva or a Sephora set. If any of you have tried both brush brands and prefer one over the other I'd love to know. Price isn't an issue.
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.   PROMOS:  I have a referral link (you get 20% off, PM me for it).   Buy the new Priming Moisturizer Rich and the Milk Jelly Cleanser together and save $5.   Sometimes there are additional discounts and promos floating around IG. Tag me if you find one and I'll add it here.     NEWS:     Priming Moisturizer Rich, a richer (duh) face cream than the one in the original line. The original is my HG cream, so I wonder how this one will stack up. It's already lost points with me for the jar packaging, but let's hope it can make it up on the formula and results fronts. $35, 1.7 fl.oz. (the original is the same size and $10 cheaper).
I don't have much left in the bottle, and I am not seeing any noticeable benefit from using it.  This was my first premium skincare purchase, and I am not sure this was worth the $90/oz.  Anyone have good results? 
I have very pale skin, and my cheeks break out very bad. My dermatologist told me my makeup products need to be non-comedogenic or non-acnegenic. My skin, especially on my contour line under my cheekbones, is very acne-prone.  It's really hard for me to find a contour that isn't orange-y and doesn't break me out. But without a little bit of contour, when I put my foundation on, I look funny since I'm so white and my foundation erases the natural contours.  I like working with cream best. I can't use Anastasia's or Nyx's though. Please let me know, I know this is hard and there might not be any that work for me. But if you do know, please let me know!
I have dry skin and typically use a hydrating foundation primer. But sometimes I would like to smooth the pores on my nose or chin depending on which foundation I am wearing on top. Are there any smoothing primers for dry skin, other than the hourglass mineral veil? I've tried it and was not wowed.
I recently received a sample of the Becca Backlight priming filter, and i really like it. It works wonders with my Teint infusion foundation. However, I am not liking the price. My question is how does this compare to the Sephora Collection Beauty Amplifier afterglow primer & luminizer? Are they comparable, Sephora's if half the price. Thanks!
