Deals Too Good to Pass Up (Take 3)
  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 link to acknowledge it. A heart with no comment means I already have the deal or am deciding not to list it. Thanks for sharing. Repeats are always welcome, so if you're unsure if something was previously posted, post it. People who may have missed it the first time could see the second posting. Don't forget to list the retailer, so everyone knows where to get your deal.   If you're posting about something on sale at Sephora, share it here: http://community.sephora.com/t5/Hauls/Sephora-Sale s-Section-Get-it-Now/m-p/2122832#M44949

April Hauls: Let's be thankful for all we haul
Post your April hauls here... I've been thinking a lot about all of the beautiful makeup items I own (and skincare...fragrance...).  I'm posting this a night early as April one is hours away where I am (Blackwhiskey's March haul thread  http://community.sephora.com/t5/Hauls/March-angel- s-kiss-in-spring-HAULS/td-p/2390709) But occasionally I get sentimental.  I'm half Welsh and half Polish (hence the eyes), two of the most sentimental, romantic and impractical people on earth.  And I'm really loving what I own (some courtesy of Sephora) not that my affection keeps me from placing new orders...sadly. So with the Sephora 15% upon us, and spring blooming...let's be thankful for our April hauls. I'll start with my two new "low buy" (ha) photos.  Some of the Tom Ford is courtesy of Sephora and Tom Ford Beauty. Nars Tom Ford Nars items: Blushes: Exhibit A (makes me glow) Impassioned (haven't had time to try) Lipstick Vivien Audacious Rosecliff limited The Body Glow One.  I can't describe how beautiful it is. A light, creamy and easily absorbed oil with a slight sheen that smells like Tahiti and flowers. It's stunning.  I want to bathe in it.

Which limited edition products and collections are must have and which to skip?
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. My recents...the Dior Nude illuminating powder (spring 2016) is a pass.  The Chanel Ribbon blush spring 2016) is a maybe.  The YSL Gypsy Opale and Indie Jaspie (face powder and eye shadow) sold out within hours of the YSL site pre-release (it just went live on NM). Anyone have any thoughts on currently available or soon to be limited editions?

Animal Testing, Gluten & Vegan Info
LIST UPDATED 6/21/14 - Sephora also suggests contacting brands directly for more information and details than we have provided here if needed   Hello lovely BTers!!

THE VISEART THREAD
Thought I'd start a thread just for Viseart since so many of us LOVE them.   I love to encourage a small brand as opposed to a brand where you pay for the name. The eye shadow quality can't be beat! ************************************************** ******* Saw this on Facebook a while back and thought I'd add it here.   A 12 color Viseart Eyeshadow Palette is $80 USD (before pro discount). Each eyeshadow pan is 2 grams and valued at approx. $6 ($3.00 per gram).   MAC has reduced the price of their single eyeshadows refills from $10 USD to $6 USD each. So 12 colors at the new reduced price would be $72 USD (before pro discount). 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).   ************************************************** ******* NEW PRODUCTS Theory palettes - Cashmere, Minx, Chroma (6 pan) Ribbons Boheme 02 (12 pan) ~ Now at Muse Beauty (new lower shipping rate for Canada! Yay!!!) ~ Theory palettes & Ribbons LIVE in the US (no news for Canada)     More releases coming up this year! Will post when I have more info     Updated: April 25 2016

Foundation for Vacation?
I will be going to Thailand soon, and the weather there is HOT. Better yet, I'm going during the humid rainy season! I would rather not have something that has a full, heavy coverage in that heat! My acne has gotten better so I'm not as concerned with getting full coverage as I used to be, but I'm still not sure which bb/cc cream or even tinted moisturizer is good enough to last in the heat!   I've tried benefit's bb cream but the somewhat powdery finish made my dry spots look splotched an uneven, as any powder foundation does.    I have fair, sensitive skin that is dry combination.  Thanks for any suggestions!

What's your makeup bag worth?
Inspired by this video @mochapj posted in the Random Thoughts thread:     Because nobody wants to deal with the time commitment (or potential shame spiral) of pricing our collections in their entirety, this refers just to an average day's worth of products.

Anti-haul threa
I saw the best youtube video...on anti-hauls (let me know if you want me to post it). Basically, it's things you are not going to buy (no way, not ever, absolutely) and why. So here are my anti-hauls:   1. More Natasha Denona. I got one five pan palette and really like 2 of the colors. But the packaging is cheap and the quality great to bad. I will not buy more, and I will not buy those big pans with enough bright shades to last me through 5 lifetimes.   2. Nude skincare. I'm done buying skin care or makeup just because it's on sale (maybe). I don't like that Nude uses safflower oil in their pricey face oils (a cooking oil, really?) but I do appreciate the ethos behind the brand. But I don't need skin care, even on sale.   3. The Too Faced PB&J palette. I have a 20% off code (someone please beg it off me) but I am not in love with the shades. They are - truly - ever so pretty. But once my kids got out of the toddler stage I was thrilled not to smell like food anymore.   4. Tarte's new collection. My daughter's favorite brand, so I keep on adding. But I'm adding more of the same. Tarte is gorgeous for what they make...but there is a lot of sameness.   You? What will you not be buying?  What are your anti-hauls?  Oh, and I missed my D on thread and can't seem to fix it.  Any ideas?   Videos one and two are on the last or almost last page of comments to this thread.  Kimberly Clark (youtube name so not putting in names not allowed on BT) made them.  Video 2 I'll link now:

The Deals To Good to Pass Up Deal Sharers Traveling Box
This Box is Closed!  There are 14 confirmed participants. Starting box contents have posted. It is on the move!   The waitlist (for possible future rounds) on this box is open to deal lovers who regularly contribute to the Deals Too Good to Pass Up Thread . I know some people are faster at sharing deals, so even those who contribute to conversations (I love reading the conversations almost as much as the deals) without posting deals are eligible. It does not matter if you're relatively new to the boards or trades (I am not looking at hearts or posting history) as long as you're active in the thread.   I'd like to consider this one a deal box. Regardless of how you came upon the deal (subscription box, kit, GWP, purchased it, etc) or what size it is (foil, deluxe, full-size, etc), it is ok as long as it is new.      Guidelines   Spoiler (Highlight to read) If you have contributed often, I will know who you are. I read all the main posts and most of the sub-posts. If I do not know who you are or you have not contributed enough, I will not hold a spot for you. My intent is to have a box where deal lovers share items they do not want with people who may have helped them score a deal at one time or another. If you have not discussed deals with others, there are a number of other boxes open right now.   Round one will be US only. If we have a round two, I will start the box in Canada as long as one of the Canadian members is willing to ship it back to US. Between Rounds, I will remove items people in the next round are not interested in (by posting and giving them three days to ask for what we keep inside) to make space in the box. I will either hold the items here until the end of all rounds and take them for donation then or take them after each round depending on what everyone prefers.    New items only unless you have a used or swatched item someone behind you is interested in. Make sure you post the possible item to the open board and wait for someone in the box to express interest before including it. I am donating to Shade Tree (a shelter for abused women and children) in Las Vegas, and they only accept new items. Please do not open or swatch anything you are not planning on taking. If you swatch it and see it is not for you, trade for it anyway. Hopefully, you can trade it with someone willing to take used items.   All new items are welcome from drugstore to high-end, because I've received all levels in kits, subscription boxes, GWP, and more. Trades should be fair. Try to swap in the same category: foil for foil, deluxe for deluxe, full-size for full-size, drugstore for drugstore, mid-range for mid-range, and high-end for high-end. Exceptions can be made for unicorns or trading a full-size item from a lower category for a deluxe. Example: if you take a deluxe mid range cream worth about $7, you can place a new, full-sized drugstore foundation worth $7-$10. They are short specifically on foundation, so I would prefer to see that whenever possible.  Only full-size items need a value placed on them when adding or removing to make sure anyone who removes them matches or exceeds their value. Deluxe samples and foils will not be valued unless the item is sold in deluxe/travel size like a Dual ended Bite Lipstick or 0.5oz GlamGlow, Exfolikate, etc. If the item is not sold in that size, trade it for a similar item.    While I do not personally like the idea of signing off on a trade, I think everyone should post their trades (with pictures and descriptions of the ins and outs), and give the other box participants 24 hours to bring any objections. If no one has any, your trade is approved and you are free to ship out. As such, members should check in once a day to have their voice heard. I think three business days with the box is fair, so I would appreciate anyone who needs longer send me and the person behind him/her a pm if s/he cannot send it by the end of the third day.   We will start with a medium USPS box, and I hope it never gets bigger than a large USPS box. You get $50 of free ins this way, so it is my preferred shipping method. If you choose not to ship through USPS, please check with the person you're shipping to first. If they are not home when the box arrives, they may want to coordinate another shipping address. Regardless of shipping method, a tracking number is required and must be shared either publicly to the thread or privately to me and the recipient.    Everyone should provide their name and address to the person in front of them and copy me on that pm, so I can have it as well.    I like the spreadsheet idea to track what is in the box, so I will probably ask everyone to add and remove their items to a Google Doc.   There is no specific buy-in per se, but I think all trades should be more valuable than what you're taking out. That way, the charity wins. Duplicates are okay (within reason). This box is going to charity, and some items may be welcome to multiple recipients. I'd rather not see 5 of the same item (unless it is foundation) or even 3 if the item is large.    If you are interested in round 2 (whether you were in round 1 or not), I can add Canadians to guaranteed spots (assuming someone is willing to ship back to the US) and Americans to waitlisted spots. If you have contributed often, I will know who you are. I read all the main posts and most of the sub-posts. If I do not know who you are or you have not contributed enough, I will not hold a spot for you. My intent is to have a box where deal lovers share items they do not want with people who may have helped them score a deal at one time or another. If you have not discussed deals with others, there are a number of other boxes open right now. Round one will be US only. If we have a round two, I will start the box in Canada as long as one of the Canadian members is willing to ship it back to US. Between Rounds, I will remove items people in the next round are not interested in (by posting and giving them three days to ask for what we keep inside) to make space in the box. I will either hold the items here until the end of all rounds and take them for donation then or take them after each round depending on what everyone prefers.  New items only unless you have a used or swatched item someone behind you is interested in. Make sure you post the possible item to the open board and wait for someone in the box to express interest before including it. I am donating to Shade Tree (a shelter for abused women and children) in Las Vegas, and they only accept new items. Please do not open or swatch anything you are not planning on taking. If you swatch it and see it is not for you, trade for it anyway. Hopefully, you can trade it with someone willing to take used items. All new items are welcome from drugstore to high-end, because I've received all levels in kits, subscription boxes, GWP, and more. Trades should be fair. Try to swap in the same category: foil for foil, deluxe for deluxe, full-size for full-size, drugstore for drugstore, mid-range for mid-range, and high-end for high-end. Exceptions can be made for unicorns or trading a full-size item from a lower category for a deluxe. Example: if you take a deluxe mid range cream worth about $7, you can place a new, full-sized drugstore foundation worth $7-$10. They are short specifically on foundation, so I would prefer to see that whenever possible. Only full-size items need a value placed on them when adding or removing to make sure anyone who removes them matches or exceeds their value. Deluxe samples and foils will not be valued unless the item is sold in deluxe/travel size like a Dual ended Bite Lipstick or 0.5oz GlamGlow, Exfolikate, etc. If the item is not sold in that size, trade it for a similar item.  While I do not personally like the idea of signing off on a trade, I think everyone should post their trades (with pictures and descriptions of the ins and outs), and give the other box participants 24 hours to bring any objections.

The Japanese Beauty/Brush Enthusiasts Thread
I'm sure I'm not the only fan of Japanese beauty products/makeup/brushes/aesthetic on BT.  I like to keep up on upcoming  Japanese beauty for my own personal purchasing, but since we don't have a thread for this, I thought I'd start one.   Feel free to contribute whatever Japanese beauty or brushes float your boat.  Some of my personal favorites are Addiction by Ayako, Three, and Les Merveilleuses de Laduree (I know, not exactly ' Japanese ' but they release a lot of their LE products there)  But, I'm sure we have some fans of Jill Stuart, Suqqu, RMK, Chicca, Elegance, all the different Shiseido sub brands, and more, so let's share the love!   Upcoming Collections: Three - 'Let the Happiness In' Summer 2016 - May 11 Addiction by Ayako - 'Never Ending Summer' - April 1/May 6

Textured skin due to acne scarring (like dents)
  I have textured, uneven skin due to past acne. Its not too bad and dents aren't too deep but it is so annoying. My pores seem large too. What could I use to resurface my skin and get rid of this scarring?

TIPS, TRICKS AND EXPERIMENTS
A thread to share and ask about tips, tricks and experiments.    Maybe you experimented with different shades of lipsticks and came up with a great new color or you found an awesome DIY face mask recipe. Whatever it is, this is the place to share!   This isn't beauty but thought I'd share anyway...    If you have a cold or you are loosing your voice mix equal parts white vinegar and honey, shake well and take a tablespoon as needed. I swear by this when I get sick!

I have dry skin so when I apply a moisturizing mask I rub what's left in my hands before washing them. Now my hands are all soft ;) see post

Have you guys tried any of these products? I'm wonderstruck by their claims of using pure products free of animal products. I'm especially interested in Blue Tansy and Orchid oil (possibly to replace my SR Flora). Any thoughts?

Makeup shopping help!
So I plan on going to Sephora during summer break and want a few items but the total came out way more than I expected.    lip glosses: Buxom's full on lip creams in dolly and mudslide   eyebrows: ABH brow powder duo in medium brown and benefit's brow gel in medium deep.and a brush that's $ 18.00   I really want to buy everything but it seems too expensive. Should I take some of these out of my list?

Kat Von D Lock-it Foundation
I have been looking in on reviews on the Kat Von D foundation and I really want to try it but im afraid it is going to make me break out easily. Which foundation if not this one would be full coverage but not make me break out easily cause i have very acne prone skin

I have tried the Kat Von D foundation. It is thick but does provide full coverage. I am now trying Mac foundation.  see post
