Hey BTers ~ WE ARE FAMOUS!!!
Back in December a journalist by the name of Alana Massey visited our community (some of you might remember this) and asked for community members to volunteer to be interviewed for an article she was writing about the role of community forums in the beauty world.   Well, today is the BIG DAY that her article was released on RACKED.COM!!!   I'm super excited by what she wrote and can not be happier by the way she portrayed our community.  ENJOY OUR NEW FOUND FAME!!!!   Check it out -  @Tamara76   @ZombieMetroAnt   @angel7594   @KatieBT   @alexasteph   @pixiedust2   @tsavorite   @Mcakes   @veronika23   P.S. Everybody, tag more people that you think would enjoy reading this. Make sure to share the LOVE!!!

Mermaids & Unicorns
I thought since a few BTer's like mermaids, unicorns, cute stuff, iridescent/holographic items... I'd start a thread so we could post all the products (beauty or not) that could fit this category.... even more enabling! hahahaha   Share products you find that you think others might like....

The Highlight Challenge
Not to generalize, but I think it's fair to say a lot of us on BeautyTalk have a slight obsession when it comes to highlighter. For me, my highlight is the finishing touch before running out the door. Some days I aim for a natural look and other days I want to look like a glistening unicorn and I know I'm not alone. Many of us have a lot of love for each of our highlighters so it's time to show them off!    Now, onto the challenge: From March 13th- April 14th  let's give our highlighters some love each day by sharing details in this thread. I encourage you to get creative and be experimental with your product and technique. There are many highlight formats (liquid, powder, balms, etc.) and you can play around with the intensity of your highlight as well. Share as much or as little as you'd like, including pictures, swatches, products, tools and your favorite tips.    Can't wait to see your lustrous highlight looks!

Deals Too Good to Pass Up (Volume Five)
Welcome back to the deal sharing fun! Deals shared here may also be posted to my blog (same name as the thread) unless you write for BT only. If I share your deal, I will always thank you here. I will heart every deal I see (without an outside or cheat link) to acknowledge it.   Beautytalk (the forum) does not allow outside links. A heart with no comment means I already have the deal or am deciding not to list it. Please list the retailer (without the link or cheat link; dot com) if it is not mentioned in the picture. Mods come in more often when they see any type of link. Thanks for sharing (original deals and repeats are welcome)! Please also share any deal haul you want, especially mystery gifts.   Discussion is encouraged. A lot of questions come with certain deals or retailers. When I see questions I can answer, I will respond (unless the poster consistently ignores me or someone else already answered the complete question). I read all the main posts (so no need to tag me). If you're replying to a post that is not near the top of the thread and want me or a specific person to see it, please tag us.   If you're posting about something on sale at Sephora, please share it here:   http://community.sephora.com/t5/Hauls/Sephora-Sale s-Section-Get-it-Now/m-p/2122832#M44949

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).

All things K-Beauty!!
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!

Spring 2017 Lipstick Challenge
Hello there, my pretties! Are we ready for spring yet? I am not necessarily ready for sun ( ), but I know I'm ready to bust out some bright colors and create my own spring magic. Rules are - there are no rules. ( Except - you must have fun! That's obligatory! ) We do feel like brights and pastels during the spring most of the time, but you do whatever you feel like doing. You do you! Try to go through your stash, and introduce us to a new pretty each day. If brights are not your cup of tea, this challenge is an excellent way to try to, well - challenge yourself. But, they are not a must.   We are planning on doing this all spring long! Please, feel free to stop by whenever.   So...   Keep calm and put your lipstick on!               My plan ( and goal ) is to shop my own stash. No buying new lipsticks, just giving some love to all my neglected lovelies. Let's see how will that go...

Daily Skincare - what are you using?
Often people ask for recommendations on a skincare routine or for specific products/combinations.  This might be a place to share your everyday skincare, both AM and PM.  A skincare "what are you wearing" as it were.  Hope this is useful.   *Age - 40 Skin type - oily/combination Current skin condition - quite dehydrated (winter/indoor heating)*   01/17/16 - AM skincare in the order I used 1. Nude Jelly cleanser (love) 2. Pixi Glow tonic (5% glycolic toner - love) 3. Omorovicza Queen of Hungary Spritz (sample) 4. Radical Skincare Youth Infusion serum - hydrating and anti-ageing (new to me.  Testing) 5. Bobbi Brown Hydrating Eye Cream (like) 6. Elemis Pro-Collagen Marine cream (really like as an AM moisturizer)   I will try to post PM skincare tonight so the post can be comprehensive.   General comments - Okay skin.  Apparently the age between 38-42 is a transformational time in hormones (dehydrated skin/spots), so I am more aware of how my skin performs/reacts .  My skincare definitely has more "actives" now than before.

The Travel Thread
Hello Everyone!   I've been meaning to make this thread for years! I want this thread to be a place where we can discuss what beauty products to check out while we are traveling, what places we are visiting/visited, what places we are saving to visit, and beauty travel tips. This can be near and far travel to include as many people as possible. I know there are individual threads about beauty products already, but I'm hoping to put them all in one place. Please link them so I can put in the info in the spoilers! Also, I'm curbing my spending to be able to travel more so I hope this encourages others who want to do the same!

MARCH 2017 FAVORITES !
it is time.     REN evercalm gentle cleansing milk . i've had this for a little while, and have enjoyed it, but this month i grew to love it. i just find it's so comforting (as the name would suggest) between the creamy texture and the smell (vaguely tea-like ?). leaves my skin plump but not so rich that it causes me any problems. i typically use this as an a.m. cleanse. REN vita mineral omega 3 optimum skin oil . another REN product, another product that i have had for a little while but have grown deep appreciation for only this month. when i first got it last fall, it immediately helped sort out a flakey nose situation that was going on. i was so impressed i more or less overused it and it caused a minor break out. but now i know it wasn't the product, but how--in my over enthusiasm--i was using it. one pump does me, i particularly like using it in the morning (or part of facials) on no makeup days. it's very lightweight and yet nourishing and glow-and-bounce-giving.  BITE multisticks . my enthusiasm for these was born after receiving the 'almond' shade as a 100 pt perk. i've now picked up cashew and mascarpone as well. i use them for everything--eyes, cheek and lips. i  lovvvvve  the monochromatic look and these make it a breeze. CLINIQUE chubby stick sculpting highlight . another 100 pt perk discovery,  this is my perfect highlight color !!!!!!!! . i find it just blends into my skin so seamlessly, but still provides the perfect amount of wet-look glow. no glitter, natural but not entirely undetectable. i've read some people find this wipes off their foundation, i haven't experienced that, but there is a bit of a wet texture to this (it doesn't bother me). i don't wear highlighter that often, but this one has me wearing highlight every day. KORRES lip butter (this one is in wild rose; i love all of them). my favorite balm. butter is the perfect word for these. they're blissful to use (just feel amazing) and the pigmentation--for a balm--is actually quite lovely ! i'm glad i've brought this back into my life after a 7 year hiatus. NARS audacious angela . i've been craving pink-stained lips for spring, and have found myself reaching for angela the most. most cool-toned pinks scare me (it can go barbie real fast, which just isn't my thing), but angela (who has a hint of purple rather than blue, which is why i think i can make it work) brightens my face so brilliantly and consistently gives me a perfect orchid-stained pout. i tend to apply with my finger and press into my lips. THE SUM - THE BLACK EDP . this niche perfume is super simple: it's oud. the sum is a jewelry brand based out of L.A. and each of their fragrances has a sterling silver ball floating in the juice that lends a hint of metallic aquaticness that makes them all rather unique. this perfume is totally unisex and sophisticated and utterly minimal. lovvvvve. ok that was a lot ! YOUR TURN !

Bronzer for cool skin tone
Anyone else has a hard time finding a bronzer? I'm a brunette with brown eyes and fair skin with cool undertone and every bronzer looks orange on me. What do you guys think of Too Faced Milk Chocolate matte bronzer or maybe the Nars contouring duo in Olympia? Any other ideas?

A bit overdue but try guerlain terracotta light in 04 sun blondes  see post
anyWould anyone be interested in joining a new/lightly used item TSB? Requirement of 500 hearts.
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 Shipping should be within 3 days of receiving the box!! 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. In other words, the item hasn't been used more than 3 times. 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.

Do not swatch items in the TSB. I saw many items that were swatched in the last box that didn't start out "swatched" or "used". 2. If an item is swatched, put "swatched" with the stickies notes I included in the box. If the items has been used (UP TO 3 TIMES ONLY), then put used and then the number of times. 3. If the box gets lost while you are sending it to the next person (for whatever reason), you will either pay a $50 deposit (to the organizer of the box)  to replace the items or you will have to put enough samples/deluxe items to make up for the box. If you are not ok with this rule, then please refrain from joining the box. 5. DO NOT INCLUDE ANY LOW END MAKE UP/ SKIN CARE (No Sephora or Ulta brand deluxe or sample!) This is a high/mid end box unless it is an Asian or Indie brand that someone wants. 4. Ship the box within 3 days to the next person. If you can't, post a message here on the board right away. 5. Post pics of your trade and wait until at least half of the group has agreed on your trade. 6. The box is based on trust so don't steal from it. It is meant to be a fun experience for everyone. 7. Have fun!   1. Alexmarya 2 . Kariyava 3. Kelloua 4. Jazachai 5. Alexasteph 6. Pinyo 7. YoiFran 8. Petisweetmom 9. Imlostagain 10. CC3616 11.
