Confession Time: I was a baaad !! girl this month... Show me your April Damage!!!...
  And this doesn't include in-store purchases, Nordstrom beauty purchases, a makeup storage purchase...   ... Can you say addict?...and can someone explain why there is still a ton of things in my cart and loved, but not yet tried things, that are dying to make their way in there next... too bad Rouge points don't carry over like AT&T rollover minutes... i'm pretty sure I'd be a staple for Rouge for the next 25 years lol or frequent flyer miles... Imagine the places us beauty addicts could be... the Sephora's we could visit!!!! Umm... I meant beaches... the beaches we could visit...   i thought to myself... hearts, maybe that will cheer me up so I dont feel so guilty... But then I looked at the past order details and remembered they are all decent sized hauls too... Yikes! Then I was hoping to post this message to help get me to chill out... But I see now that will be impossible as there are still too many things on my need and/or want brat list...   Hopefully, seeing your posts will show i am not alone in this beauty addiction... and that will ease the pain   xx

Best lipstick packaging??
I'm a lover of beautiful packaging, as well as lipstick, and had been wondering if there are any other good lipsticks out there that also have cool packaging that I could be overlooking. I have two lipsticks that have great packaging: Givenchy's Le Rouge and Chanel Rouge Allure. I'm also eyeing Too Faced's La Creme. Additionally, Tarte's packaging for the Amazonian Lip Butter and the Glamazon lipsticks are so cute -- yet none of the colors are drawing me in. Furthermore, I'm so sad that I was unaware of Guerlain's Rouge G Voilette de Madame collection as that is some seriously pretty packaging. Any other suggestions??   http://www.sephora.com/le-rouge-P377755?skuId=1497 569   http://www.sephora.com/la-creme-P374933?skuId=1493 964   Photo from Temptalia

Brands that you thought were for grandma but you now appreciate...
When I first started buying high end make up, there were a couple of brands that I would run from the lady at the counter because I wasn't interested in "That Brand!".  There were a couple of booths that I would stay away from like Estee Lauder, Clinique, Clarins just to name a few.  I thought of them as brands my grandmother would wear.  But it was strange that I thought that brands like Dior, Gucci and Chanel were the pinnacle of cool though.  I always thought of them as classics like the little black dress with pearls.  Now that I'm 40 going on 41, I finally tried my first Estee Lauder lipstick and I'm in love (the free GWP didn't hurt either).  I never in a million years thought I would ever buy anything from them but i'm really liking them right now.    I don't know what it is... maybe the "cool" factor of who's wearing what and the ignorance of youth but I find myself shopping brands that I wouldn't have 15 years ago.  Is it because I'm getting old and older, that trusted brands are now appealing to me?  Who knows....  I'll always check out to see what's new on the UD website or what Kat Von D is releasing but I think that maybe I'm looking for something classic now.  That and I didn't even know that Estee Lauder knew that fuchsia existed!  Maybe they're trying to appeal to a younger clientel now but I'm on the bandwagon!   Are there any brands that you steer clear of or that you have in the past but now you're rethinking?  I find it interesting...

Who is with me?! The rules are as follows …   Must post a screenshot weekly showing you haven’t made any purchased ;-) (this will serve to keep me honest) Will not be swayed by cute little promos, perks or samples. Will not click the ‘Just Arrived’ link. Will not perform search for ‘sephora favorites’ Will not post any promo codes in thread. Will NOT allow outside ‘enables’ entice you to purchase! Even though a product that is on your ‘love’ list but has been sold out, comes back in stock you WILL NOT buy!!! Set a NO-BUY time frame (THIS IS NOT FOR THE REST OF THE YEAR, you pick what would work best for you!).

How can I dye my medium brown hair blonde?
I have medium brown hair similiar to the picture below I really want to go blonde like this:   How can I do that without completely destroying my hair or having it come out orange?   I take fairly good care of my hair, I deep condition it once a week and use a repairing conditioner on other days and I use a clarifying shampoo once a week. My hair is quite soft and healthy looking now, I don't want to dye it and have it be brittle and dead looking. Also, what is the best way to dye my hair blonde and have it look natural?

Lots O' Goodies TSB
This box is open for US shipping only. The shipping becomes more expensive for Canada, and takes longer due to border checks. Sorry   Once I get the box back I'll pick out some items and then give the rest to 'The River' (a local organization that takes and redistributes new and used makeup/beauty items to women in need). I've given beauty products to this organization before and they're really good.   * Please make sure every item is in a plastic ziplock bag to prevent spills.   Donts’s ■ DON'T keep the box for more than two days. Keep it moving! If you are traveling or a special circumstance comes up, we can work to rearrange things. (ALSO YOU MUST INCLUDE A TRACKING NUMBER it makes it more fun anticipating your turn)
 
■ DON'T put unsanitary items of any sort into the TSB. We want to have fun and get gorgeous, not sickly 
 ■ DON'T put any drugstore items into the TSB. 
■ No reserve 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. This is a hygienic precaution that we must take, as a lot of people will be handling these items.
 ■ DON'T take more than one of the same sample if multiples exist. Share the love!
 ■ DON'T take more than what you put in. Please trade at or above each item’s retail value.
     Do’s 
♥ Please contribute high-end beauty products only. No drugstore items. If you have questions or you are unsure of an item, ask!
 ♥ Unused, swatched or lightly used products are perfectly acceptable. Well-loved items are NOT (unless explicitly requested by the next person or there has been a posted picture and someone requested that item). Again, if you’re unsure, ask!
  ♥ Swatched/used items must be labeled as such.
 ♥ All opened items must be cleaned/sanitized prior to their addition to the box.
 ♥ Send your address to the person above you in a PM. ♥ Package things carefully! Try to leave the TSB in better condition than you found it ☺
 ♥ Please seal any items that could leak/spill/make a mess accordingly.
 ♥ Most importantly, share your experience! Please post a photo and a description of the box, what you took, and what you contributed. 
   Allowed:
 ☆High-end, clean makeup/skincare items (including makeup bags, brushes, etc. If you have questions, refer to other TSB threads or just ask!)
 ☆Fragrance (be sure to package bottles properly!)
 ☆Nail polish (again, be careful!)
   Not allowed:
 ☆Pre-made samples
 ☆ NO used/swatched lip wands (the kind you dunk the wand in or things like stila lipglaze)
 ☆Heavily used items ☆ Drugstore items
 ☆Used items that haven’t been cleaned/sanitized
 ☆Homemade items (save for cards, etc.) ☆Questionable items (always ask if you have doubts!)   If you cannot take photos, Do Not Sign Up, please *******PUT BETTER OR EQUAL PRICED ITEMS IN FOR WHAT YOU TAKE OUT TO KEEP UP THE INTEGRITY OF THE BOX*********   Final Verdict on Mascara- A lot of the GWP mascaras are not sealed. It is ok to include these mascaras in the box ONLY IF THEY ARE UNUSED. Please be honest (it's a matter of health!). Also, please be aware that some of the mascaras may be dried out upon opening them. Only open them if you selected them as your item. Please be honest when it comes to this.   Also, please pick up a large priority box at the post office prior to receiving the box. This is so we can streamline things (get the box to everyone faster in case the box breaks or there's a spill).   -send your address to the person above you -post a picture and text what you are taking and what you put in BEFORE you send the box on.   Roxystar  ------->  USPS 9405509699938328770551 1.

Long wearing lipstick recommendations!
Ladies I would love your suggestions! I am looking for a lipstick, or the pigmentation of a lipstick NOT a gloss or stain! It must be long wearing and not feather or bleed or flake off. I am in a wedding and need it to last all night, or at least most of it and still look pretty. My dress is light light purple, wisteria to be exact so I want it it be a nude and not a brown nude or a concealer nude but a nice pinky nude (my lips are fairly pigmented to begin with).

Q. Any products similar to Boscia's Intensifying Moisture Pack +?
Of course as soon as my mom and I become obsessed with the Intensifying Moisture Pack + from Boscia (we use it as a moisturizer day and night), we found out at our local sephora that they've stopped selling that particular product! If anyone knows of any other products for combination skin that are similar and also very moisturizing, or if there's an alternative/replacement product by Boscia that's taking it over, that would be quite helpful.

How do you apply your Guerlain meteorites?
As I became more and more addicted to Guerlain Meteorites, and acquires more and more pearls, I've started to think about possible sanitary issue. The thing is, powder last a long time not only because it's dry but it's easy to sanitize. You can't really sanitize the Meteorites perles, so while I use the same brush every morning with the same powder for a week or so before I wash it.......should I use a clean brush every time with Meteorites???   And am I the only one tempted to pour some meteorites into a smaller jar so I'm only "contaminating" a little bit at a time as I'm using them?
