I know there are a few of us on BT that are fragrance addicts, so I thought it would be nice to have a dedicated place where we can share our thoughts. This is not to take away from the lovely What Are You Wearing Today, Fragrance Edition thread, but more a place to post longer reviews, chat about new brands or releases, and just shoot the breeze on anything good and smelly For me, I recently acquired 2 new decants that I've been anxiously awaiting. Ever since Lachaton mentioned that MMM was releasing a new scent called By The Fireplace I've been itching to get my hands on it. My decant arrived yesterday, so I'm looking forward to marinating in it this weekend. Secondly, I recently picked up a tiny sample of Shiseido Nombre Noir. Apparently it is one of the most expensive failures in perfume history - made by Serge Lutens for Shiseido back in the 80s. Of course, with a backstory like that, I was dying to get a sniff What's new on your scent radar? Do tell!
a place to post about all things Sephora Favorites sets: past, present and future. Have a question, please ask. Have a review, please post. Have pics, please show us. These sets are one of my favorite things about shopping at Sephora. I get to try a bunch of products for a lower price and always end up finding some HG items. Today, I got the Sephora Favorites: Beauty on the Fly. It was $42 plus ebates was at 8%. For me, I've either been wanting to try all of these items, or have tried and really like them. More pics and thoughts in the first post.
A place to say thanks to helpful BTer's, share your new BT status or heart acheivement... A place to joke around, share memes, riddles or anything else you want to. Let's bring back some life in this place!!!! ps: Not a place for negative comments

Just wanted to take this opportunity to give a little organic love and shout out @WanderBeauty . My Exquisite Eye Liquid Eyeshadow in the shade Mocha arrived yesterday in the mail, adorably wrapped in black and white striped tissue paper, even. Of course I'm much too impatient to have thought to take a picture, but thankfully my quick-thinking boyfriend thought to document the process: Okay, that may or may not be me... but I believe everyone who participated in the "Name Our Shades" thread a while back will be receiving something (fingers crossed for you, Canada). So I'm sure someone who is significantly more composed upon receiving new toys in the mail can document. Haven't had a chance to try it out yet, but really looking forward to giving it a test drive! So thank you again to @WanderBeauty for including us BTers in your naming process and spreading the love!

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!!!
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?
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. 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
Hey guys, so I'm 27 with fair, sensitive, acne prone skin especially hormonal acne. I am thinking of changing up my skin care routine, BUT I have been using Origins plantscription am with SPF 25 and the night a mins cream at night (both creams are oil free too) for probably 2-3 years now. I just feel like maybe I need something new for my skin, I have been looking at Lancome and some other products, but I just dont know what to go with? obviously I would like a day cream that has SPF in it and im all about anti-aging products it is never too early to start for that. So I need some advice what are the best products to maybe try out that are reasonable or maybe just keep my routine the way it is?
I'm developing a love for brushes of all kinds. Here's my collection as it is right now, although I just placed an order for more Hakuhodo brushes. I bought a few and they are amazing so I had to get more lol. They are incredibly soft and my makeup glides on like a dream. They have so many interesting shapes. I can't wait to get the 103 and 142. Show your brush collection! Share any cleaning and storage tips and let us know which ones are your favorites.
I have dry skin and i'm in need of a good primer. I currently use the estee lauder double wear foundation which I know is on the drying side but it is the only longest lasting fullest coverage foundation I have found so far that I can wear that covers my acne scarring without a concealer. So what would be a good foundation thatI could use with the double wear that will help hydrate my skin and prevent it from getting dry patches from the foundation?
A lot of the other big beauty brands have their own threads now, so I thought, why not NARS? Let's share news about new collections, feedback on products, etc here. The audacious thread: http://community.sephora.com/t5/Lips/Show-Me-Your- Audacious-Collection/m-p/1695820#M10941 Summer 2016: 413BLKR, Blasphemy, Ferocious, Laguna blushes, 413BLKR matte lip pencil Repromotes of existing shades, plus a hot summer shadow palette: Deep Throat Blush, $30 Flirty sheer pink Mata Hari Blush, $30 Pink with a trace of crimson Turkish Delight Lip Gloss, $26 Pink sherbet Salamanca Lip Gloss, $26 Pink Flamingo Greek Holiday Lip Gloss, $26 Sparkling pink sand Black Moon Audacious Mascara, $26 Black Satin Minorque Kohliner, $25 Black Survival Kit (Summer 2016) Fall 2016: Spoiler (Highlight to read) Pink: no label 2nd shade: Area 3rd shade: Playpen? 4th shade: hidden label 5th shade: Unspeakable 6th shade: Dancetaria Pink: no label2nd shade: Area3rd shade: Playpen?4th shade: hidden label5th shade: Unspeakable6th shade: Dancetaria Holiday 2016 (Sarah Moon): Spoiler (Highlight to read) Have you picked up anything from the collection so far?

Hey Beauties- We have ALOT of threads around here for Tom Ford products. I figured I'd start one thread where we can update each other on items as they come out or we see them available. For all my UK'ers, or people willing to pay for shipping from the UK, Harrods has Softcore and Nude Dip from the Fall collection available right now. Happy Shopping!
I made a purchase, in store, 5 days ago. I gave my email address at check out, but my beauty insider points are not showing on my account. I still have the receipt. How do I go about getting the points added?
I recently started using the Drunk Elephant Framboos Glycolic Night Serum, about a few weeks ago. And each time I use it, I notice I get these deep subsurface bumps on my jawline. itchy and pretty painful. Has anyone else experienced this with this product? I'm not sure if its an allergic reaction, or what. I figured my skin may be purging at first, but this does not hardly seem worth it for a product that was $100. Attaching a photo to show my areas of concern. No idea what it is!
I have a physical Beauty Insider Card that I use for in store purchases and I also do online shopping. (Because I love Sephore more than I love my cat...) And I was wondering if there's a way to combine the two? Thanks!
The models in the Clinique Pep Start ads are all very, very young. Of course their skin care needs are quite different from those of someone like me (normal to dry, deep creases and large pores, 60 years old). Does this mean Pep Start products are targeted for teenagers?
To start my birthday month off right, I finally got my CP orders from the sale and super excited my Birthday Boy order arrived too☺️ Some other sale purchases and great finds. I cannot wait to use Stavros! I can't wait to see what everyone is treating themselves to this month!😊
I'll try to keep this short BUT I SUCK AT ALL THINGS EYELINER ! No matter what I try, buy, or do.. I always mess up lining my top lid. My chubby fingers and my shaky grip destroy any kind of line I dream of having! (Lately I've succumbed to just lining my bottom lid but I feel like that might make me look more of a football linebacker. LOL) In the end I'm looking for just a defining line on my top lid. I don't even dare to dream of doing a cat eye or winged look. Here are the products I've tried: 1. Kat Von D Tatoo Liner 2. Stila All Day Waterproof Liquid Liner 3. Urban Decay 24/7 Waterproof Liner 4. Marc Jacobs Beauty Highliner Gel Eye Crayon 5. Benefit They're Real Push Up Liner 6. Stila Smudge Stick Waterproof Liner 7. Makeup Forever Aqua XL Eye Pencil 8. Tarte Lights, Camera, Lashes Eyeliner 9. Bare Minerals Long Wearing Eyeliner 10. Smashbox Kohl Waterproof Liner I also just purchased these two brushes which I tried with the eyeliner in the Shade & Light set: (and of course messed it up horribly) 1. Sephora Pro Tightline Liner Makeup Brush 2. Makeup Forever 256 Definer Eyeliner Makeup Brush Please help me with your tips, tricks, correct products to buy, etc. I feel like I keep Sephora in business with all my tries to do this.. HELP ME find the right way that will work for me. I know this is the place I can come to for makeup advice... HELP A GIRL OUT and teach me how to line my eyes CORRECTLY! Thanks in advance for both reading this and your time to comment (if you so choose) I really need the help!!!
