The Question Thread: Because not all questions need their own thread.
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?

THE TARTE THREAD!!!
NEWS, UPCOMING COLLECTIONS, DISCUSSIONS AND SWATCHES!   I was surprised there wasn't a dedicated thread for the brand especially since they have really upped their game recently. So since pretty much every brand has a thread I thought to start one for Tarte!   They have been slaying with the recent launches and truly on a roll with more amazing products to come!

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.

Beauty Gift Bag Enthusiasts- Information, Photos and Recommendations
Hey gift bag haulers-I know you are out there! If you are like me and feel compelled to purchase every department store and boutique gift bag event, this is the place to share your info, pictures, decisions, reviews and more. I just went for the Bergdorf Goodman Be Beautiful bag and will post my picture down below in a little bit. There are more of these GWP bags coming up and I would love to discuss your favorites, what the gifts bags have or will contain. I even have the idea that we could possible negotiate swaps between the gift bags and potentially go in to share a bag (split the gift and $250 purchase) for example..Lots to discuss!   Dates-please post any info that you get and I will try to update   Neiman Marcus Beauty Event February 11th 2016- gift with purchase, gifts and buy in TBA   Space NK- TBA I believe it is coming up in February   Barney's Gift bag- February/March (there is already a thread for this specific event, so just mentioning it)   Let's gift it up!!!

I will heart every deal I see without an outside 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. 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

Beauty Pet Peeves
What are your beauty pet peeves?   Here are a few of mine   When there's a huge hype around an item/brand or your own hype to get something and you get it and you are just meh.   I recently got a few items that were taking FOREVER to get to my house.  Canada Post was sooo slow at processing... the items were stuck with them and the tracking wasn't moving at all.  I was so excited and couldn't wait for them to be delivered and finally the items just showed up (tracking not updated) and I was like meh... not too impressed with what I got.  I thought I'd love it but no... not really. Swatched and sitting in a drawer somewhere... awww that just kills me lol   Another one (and this is for the Canadian girls). When you see free shipping on your favorite beauty products and then notice below in very small font US ONLY. ugh   So what grinds your gears? Share your stories!!!

How to get makeup to look flawless
I see so many girls on Youtube with absolutely flawless makeup,like Karisma Collins,and Andrea Russett, and I'm just wondering on how to achieve that look? I'm assuming using primer and makeup setting spray works? What would be some good long lasting makeup for sensitive, and oily skin? Any suggestions AT ALL will be welcomed!!!!

Suggestions for Fine, Flat Hair
I have very fine hair that is pretty long (halfway down my back). It never really holds a curl. I have to wash it every day, and by the end of the day it usually looks stringy and flat. I'm currently using Biolage shampoo and Humectress conditioner. After washing, I blow dry and wear it down. I'm interested in trying some new products and tools (my blowdryer is actually my mom's and I need one to take to college with me next year). I've tried the Drybar Texas Tea shampoo and conditioner and they seemed to work. Otherwise, I'm kind of at a loss for what to use. There's just so many products out there! Any suggestions or advice? Thanks so much!

MAJOR eyeliner issues
I need a whold semester on classes in eyeliner to every nail it halfway one day and not take 45min.   What are some recommendations, I have dark brown hair and eyes and lighter skin.  So black for the color.  I always basically stuck with the drugstore glide on pencils with regular pencils tugging so much, and liquid not great for a shaky hand.  recently tried a kajal i swore by, but it seems a bit dry in less than a week.  easy to get on tho thick.  I nonstop hear about maybelline gel point and use brush in kit.  my hands wouldn't allow me the chance to succeed.     Also, a lot seem to get rubbed of after im done applying mascara.  have yet to find eye end or drugstore that stays

Sephora vs. Ulta - The Verdict
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! = )

Trying to color match to Marc Jacobs' Remarcable foundation
Hi everybody, I bought a bottle of the Remarcable foundation in shade 36 Beige Golden online (I don't live near a Sephora so unfortunately I'm not able to look at in store swatches) but it's a little too golden for my skintone. I'm about an NC30/C3 and also a near perfect match to Too Faced Born This Way in Natural Beige; to those of you who are the same shade as me, what do you recommend? Thank you!
