What is your most cherished/beloved/rare item in your make up collection?
And the follow up question is: do you ever use it? I'm really curious with all of the talk about LE items, Asian exclusives, and just those hard to get items!

Upcoming Sales in 2015?
Does anyone know of any sales that are coming up or that are planned for the year?? I thought last year there was one in April for 15% off. I know in November there was the VIB sale for 20% off. And then in December was the 10 off $50 for BI and 20 off $50 for VIBs.   Has anyone heard when and what the sales for 2015 will be? Thanks

Tinted lip balm that doesn't melt!
I've never been a big lipstick girl, but I do like a little subtle color. I find glosses too sticky/shiny without enough hydration. Burt's bees tinted lip balm is my favorite thing in the world but it's ruined after one sunny afternoon in the park. I've been using regular lip balm with nars satin lip pencils to get my color fix, but I feel like there has to be a good one-step solution. Help?

Are you "trialing" a new product ? Want to talk about it ?
trying new products can be...overwhelming. do you love a product because it works ? can you tell right away if it's performing the way you want it to ? sometimes i'm so happy to finally try something and let my enthusiasm blind my  actual  impression of it (at least at first )   it takes time to come to proper conclusions ! particularly when it comes to skincare, but makeup too.   so here's a thread where we can discuss our experiences while trying a product  for a first time. it can also be a place that people can reference if they're considering a new product.   right now i'm trying a sample of the REN v-cense night cream. i've only used it for 2 nights so far, but i LOVE IT. i love it so much i'm tempted to go ahead and grab it up, but i need to make sure it doesn't break me out over time (it contains shea butter which *can* be a breakout trigger for me, but not necessarily). it smells of frankincense which i adore, but i know for some people would be a turn off.   i'm also checking out the VICHY aqualia thermal serum. i really love the CAUDALIE vinosource s.o.s. thirst quenching serum, and prefer the texture of it to the VICHY, but think the caudalie may break me out slightly (i also was probably overusing it...i was very enthusiastic). so i'm just trying to figure out which i prefer.   how about you ?   __________ post trial edit about the products above: i had to skip on the REN because the shea butter in it was too heavy for my skin. and i suppose buying something simply for the smell isn't the best use of my mula the VICHY aqualia thermal serum, however, is in my permanent arsenal. i've already repurchased once since starting this thread, and have turned a few people on to it too !

One I have already (GA Brow Maestro-ordered same color, wanted to order a different one). And I placed two different orders for Glamglow Thirstycleanse! What a dumbo! Now both those orders will have to be returned...ugh! I just can't believe I did this considering I was checking and rechecking my orders. And yes...I ordered them all from Sephora!

Storing lipsticks: the eternal question
Alright, wise people of Beauty Talk. I have a lipstick holder and keep all my MAC lipsticks in it. I spend so much time on the morning pulling them out and turning them to read the label and find the one I want. I was complaining to my sister about this morning ritual and I said I was probably just going to store them upside down so the labels are easy to read. She gasped as though I had suggested that I give them all to my daughter to use as crayons and just buy a tube of Chapstick as replacement. She said all of the bullets would break off due to gravity and they'd be ruined!   Is she right? Do you store your precious tubes of coloured happiness upside down or right side up?

Purging/Irritation from new skincare regimen
I've just recently switched skin care products twice and I'm not sure what to do.   Originally I was using the Neutrogena Acne Wash system (for about 3 years). I had started using it because I was breaking out after running. The past year it's been making my skin really dry and flaky and I decided to stop using it.   I started using Bare Escentuals cleanser/serum/moisturizer and noticed I was getting bumps all over my forehead. They didn't seem like pimples, just bumps that wouldn't go away. About three weeks after that, I switched to Philosophy skincare.   Now I'm using Philosophy Purity cleanser, Renewed Hope in a Jar moisturizer, and the One Minute Microdelivery peel (only once a week, so I've only used this twice now). I've been using the Philosophy stuff for ten days, and the bumps on my forehead have gotten worse. They look like pimples now and they get very red/itchy after I wash my face and put on moisturizer. I can't tell if this is purging or irritation and I'm afraid to switch skin care again so soon.    I'm not sure what to do.

Need Help with Anti-Aging skincare regimen
I just turned 52 and my skincare routine that i have followed for years is no longer cutting it.  I use cleansing oil (a mixture of Castor, Grapeseed, Sweet Almond, and Jojoba) i massage that on my face and then use a little Clinque liquid soap to remove it.  Then I use (I'm almost embarrassed to say this but I use Raw Apple Cider Vinegar with Vitamin E oil, Distilled Water and asprin Toner.  What i am wanting okay....NEEDING is a grown up Adult Woman looking at her 50's skin care regimen.  I've noticed wrinkles and even more worrisome is a lack of firmness.  I should say that i am also in the middle of a weight loss program and have lost 45lbs so far, so things are beginning to sag from both age and weight loss.  I don't just have bags under my eyes, they are suitcases.  What do you suggest?   Any advice appreciated!

Felt bullied and hurt by sephora SA today.. A New return procedure?
Sorry for the long rant but I need to get this out, it's eating me up inside..maybe I'm wrong maybe I'm not. But I feel upset nonetheless.    I went to sephora to return a couple of items today..I brought up to cash 1 item to price check on and took out my returns. She told me the price and I said no thanks since it was $4 less online at sephora's site so she put it away. I took out my items and told her only 1 didn't have a reciept (I mention its in my purchase history I'm sure) and rest I do have receipts and yes products have been tried. She proceeded to scan then inspect while asking reason for return which I know is fine and normal..So the first non receipt item I say I bought it in dec I think and the liquid lipstick set seems separated as with initial use it squirted oil out instead of actual color and she gives me a smug look and proceeds to squeeze each tube in the set and show me like I'm wrong..then the second item she scans I had the receipt but realised it was the wrong one (brought the survey portion in error..my bad I was in a hurry) so I say I'll bring the item back with proper receipt so she says its scanned already so she will just process with that other item, I say fine and think to myself I'll use the store credit anyway then  she scans the final item that was an online purchase that thankfully I had the invoice for and reason was that the item arrived defective and she looks at me like I damaged it. I say I got it yesterday and that's how it was..another smug look with a very sarcastic "ahuh". Then when all is done, she refunds just my online purchase to my cc then she says ok so what are you buying and suddenly in a high pitched voice, where's the other item you just had it was just here ( price check item that she put away)..she acted like I slipped it in my purse, so I mention I didn't want it remember you put it away and that I'm ok with merchandise credit today coz I don't have time to look around, my kids crying but she says "no you can't and go get something for exchange only" . I feel so humiliated and speechless and in my panic I grab whatever coz I need to tend to my kid at that point it had already taken so long. I felt like she bullied me into buying and I would have appreciated if she mentioned a new policy change or whatever when I told her i didn't have a receipt..so she then hands over the new receipt with my new products and it has red stamps all across with "exchange only".    Thank you sephora for making me feel like a criminal today. I know I dont matter to you.

For a while now, snail enzyme has been very popular as a skincare ingredient in Korea, Japan and France. As a note: the snail secretions is collected from snail cultered in labs and purified before being added to skincare products.   So, the enzyme has been tested and known to fight acne by speeding up cell regeneration. Heal blemishes and removes redness. Awesome with hydration and boosts collagen and elastin production. Sounds like a miracle!   I read about this on a beauty blog and got really interested. I'm considering eye creams. I just need to finish what I have before buying something new. So, would you consider trying?

How often do you wear lipstick, and how long does it take you to finish a tube of lipstick?
Hey Everyone! I'm curious as to:   - How often everyone else wears lipstick? - Whether it's usually nudes (because of work, or preference?), or any color as you please - And generally how long does it take you to get through a full tube of lipstick?   Despite my [admittedly overwhelming] collection of lipsticks, I find that I don't wear lipstick as often as I like (I should probably start the 30-day Lipstick Challenge, shouldn't I? ), mostly because I get a little nervous that bright lipsticks (my weakness) aren't well suited for my work environment. Outside of work, I love slapping on a deep red or berry shade, but alas there aren't as many weekends as I'd like there to be.   I can't think of a single lipstick I've finished, before I've felt compelled to toss it out (not even my minis! for shame!), though I'm somewhat close to finishing up a tube of MAC's Russian Red. That being said, I've made a significant dent in my hoarder's stash of lip balms (hello, unreasonably dry and frigid winter).   How about you guys??

In the spirit of all the other wonderful challenges on BT right now, I'm starting up a nail polish challenge for us.  I have a ridiculous stash and I need to show my polish some love.   With nail polish, once a day would be absurd (of course), so let's try and show off a new look and polish once a week.  I'm personally going with manicures only, but if you'd rather do pedicures or even both go for it!   I'm eager to see your collections and meet other polish junkies.  It's past time for me to commit to using my stash!   Past: Spoiler (Highlight to read) Week 1 - No Theme (ends 1/31/15): Nicole by OPI Gumdrops in Cinna-Man of My Dreams Week 2 (2/1-2/7) - Winter's Last Hurrah: Julep in Fina, Ciate in Snow Fall Week 3 (2/8-2/14) - Valentine's/Anti-Valentine's: Formula X in Starfish, accent Julep in Yuki Week 4 (2/15-2/21) - Mardi Gras and/or Chinese New Year: CoverGirl Outlast Stay Brilliant in Lemon Drop, Julep in Beverly, Wet & Wild Fast Dry in SaGreena the Teenage Witch Week 5 (2/22-2/28) - Textures:  Julep in Lissa, Sally Hansen Xtreme Wear in Sea-ing Stars, unknown shell pieces Week 1 - No Theme (ends 1/31/15): Nicole by OPI Gumdrops in Cinna-Man of My DreamsWeek 2 (2/1-2/7) - Winter's Last Hurrah: Julep in Fina, Ciate in Snow FallWeek 3 (2/8-2/14) - Valentine's/Anti-Valentine's: Formula X in Starfish, accent Julep in YukiWeek 4 (2/15-2/21) - Mardi Gras and/or Chinese New Year: CoverGirl Outlast Stay Brilliant in Lemon Drop, Julep in Beverly, Wet & Wild Fast Dry in SaGreena the Teenage WitchWeek 5 (2/22-2/28) - Textures: Julep in Lissa, Sally Hansen Xtreme Wear in Sea-ing Stars, unknown shell pieces   Current:   Week 6 (3/1-3/7) - International Women's Day (actually 3/8, but this way your nails are done for the occasion!) Create a mani inspired by a woman you admire.  Friend, family, famous, even fictional - whatever inspires you.  Then share how you chose the look!   Future OPTIONAL Themes: Spoiler (Highlight to read) Week 7 (3/8-3/14) - Numbers and/or Sweets for Pi Day! (3/14) I couldn't resist including this.  Pi(e) Day is a great way for math and pie lovers to unite.  Feature numbers, equations, desserts, or anything inspired by your sweet tooth for this week. Week 8 (3/15-3/21) - St. Patrick's Day (3/17) Find your favorite shades of green and get ready for the holiday! Week 9 (3/22-3/28) - Springtime In honor of the first day of spring last week, let's get those spring colors and looks out and show them off. Week 7 (3/8-3/14) - Numbers and/or Sweets for Pi Day!

concealers! looking to find one that's full coverage and setting powder!
Hey guys!!!! . . . So I'm looking to find a really good full coverage concealer particularly for the under eye area. One that won't crease a ton and also a suggestion for a setting powder. I have Narz creamy concealer which I really like but looking for one with more covera. For setting powder I've heard some good things about laura mercier. 'm not looking for an HD powder because im not loving the flash back. Any suggestions would be awesome!!!
