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 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. Done Sharing! Now, use these deals and haul! My favorite hauls are always from the deals we all share. If you find something full priced that is new and awesome, share it here. http://community.sephora.com/t5/Sephora-com/Autumn -Winter-2015-Found-in-the-Wild-quot-New-quot/m-p/2 ...
This year’s advent calendars are starting to roll out. Yes, I am crazy about advent calendars! Last year I had about 4-5 advent calendars I was opening every day to countdown the holidays. I wonder what brands/companies will bring out advent calendars this year. Last year we had some from L’Occitane, the Body Shop, QVC, Benefit, Ciate, Jo Malone and even David’s Tea and Starbucks!

Ok so I've been wanting to make this thread for a while. I've also been wanting to start a "random thoughts" thread...but I figured I'd separate the categories so that at least the "beauty" one is on the front page, rather than hidden in off topic. So, have a beauty-related thought but don't think it's worth starting a thread about ? Post it here ! today I got a facial at an extraordinarily nice spa. A real treat. And the results were immediate and truly great. But guys: she pulled out a clarisonic and a foamy cleanser for that first initial cleanse, and I nearly had a heart attack. Great for a lot of people but most of you know how I feel about those things !!!!!! Overall, as I said, it was great and my skin is happy. But sheesh. _____________ SWATCH REQUEST THREAD HERE: http://community.sephora.com/t5/The-Swatch-Board/T HE-SWATCH-REQUEST-THREAD/td-p/2223212
I already have the Filmstar bronze & glow palette but looking into some of her other products. Does anyone have any experiences they would like to share esp with her Light Wonder Foundation, her blush and the Airbrush Flawless Finish Powder? I'm interested in getting these three things but still on the fence about taking the plunge! Please let me know, many BTers opinions have helped me out on products before Thanks in advance!
Feeling sad that the November sales are over? I know we have BF/Cyber Monday deals to look forward too as well. But since we have to wait for the preview yet (I believe this Friday via the Sephora to Go app) I thought we could get excited about December! Tell us below what you plan to get in December? Maybe one item you missed out this month on with the sale? Maybe a mini haul?! A regret you are still lusting over? Do tell...... =D For myself, I maybe plan to get a Viseart palette or an Hourglass Powder (would be my first one ever) and hopefully just leave it at that. Just one of an item that I have been wanting forever and I will wait it out for December to get it! Maybe even an impulse buy, who knows...
++ This Box is Closed.++ Hey ladies! Let's get ready to have some fall/winter fun! The box will go out the week of October 1st. Here are the members for this TSB and the current box order: Mrsbaine MochaPJ (CDN) knuevekm zpsid91 Talinder GreenChilli Libellules michelleshops SuzeAlex Heartsmyface (CDN) GreenPorchLights TheSocialQuota TSB Rules: Trade items that are equal in value and brand quality or better. For example, Dior for Guerlain would be a good trade, as would Too Faced for Tarte. Do not trade Dior for Tarte. Do not take more than you put in. Please ensure your trade is adding value to the box. Trade full sized items for full sized items. If a full size item you’d like to add is over 8oz or is bulky, share it with the group prior to your trades to gauge interest. If someone is interested in this item, it may be included. Keep the box balanced. If there are a lot of skincare items, add items from a different category if you’re able to. Do not take all of one category from the box. For example, do not take all the palettes or masks. Before you seal and mail the box, you need a majority, including the next person in the box’s OK on the trade. If you’re not sure if an item is appropriate, post the item and ask the group. Do not include duplicate items unless there is specific interest. Take a picture of the complete contents of the box when you receive it. This will help us all keep track of what’s in the box and can help influence our own decisions for entry. the box should be moving to the next participant after 3 business days. Courtesies: Don't put in anything unsanitary! (i.e. used lipgloss, used liquid lipstick, used cream products, used mascara) Post a picture and write info of what you took and left, with their condition and value – this way members can weigh in on the trades before shipping Include close up, open photos of any items that will be sealed that you cannot see the color through. This includes lipsticks, palettes, blushes, etc. 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 Swatched/used items must be labeled as such. All opened items must be cleaned/sanitized prior to their addition to the box Sanatizing consists of spraying the item with a makeup sanitizer, or making your own with half parts 70% alcohol and water. Must post photos of all swaps and wait for approval from the thread before sending the box to the next recipient. The box coordinator and 50% of participants should give the OK for your trade. Give the group 24 hours to review your trades and provide feedback. Please contribute mid to high-end beauty products only. No drugstore items. If you have questions or you are unsure of an item, ask! Not allowed in the box: Pre-made samples Drugstore or lower end items Heavily used items (except for perfume) Swatching items in the box Any product that you “dunk” a wand into or you dip your fingers into (like lip gloss or mousse blush) if they’re not new and unused. These cannot be sanitized. Large or bulky items unless there is interest No duplicates unless they are high end or highly sought after products Mail Tracking All participants must provide a tracking number for their shipment, posted to the thread upon receipt. At the start of the box, each participant should PM the person who will next receive the box to determine shipping details. These shipping details should be confirmed again by PM before sending out the box. When specifying shipping instructions, choose the option that optimizes both the security of the box and timely retrieval, whether that means having the box shipped to a workplace to ensure a signature, to a PO Box, etc. Each participant is responsible for notifying box the box leader, as well as the participants before and after them, should their availability or instructions change. A box participant suggested that we each include a unicorn that we may have in our collection. I think this is a good idea! Perhaps we can each tell each other a unicorn we're looking for and if we have to, we can change the order. At the end of the box, the remaining contents, after I pick, will go to Believe in Tomorrow, a Baltimore based Charity that services families whose children are in treatment at Johns Hopkins Hospital. Let's have fun ladies!
All of a sudden about two weeks ago I've been developing tiny bumps on my forehead and one side of my temple area. What could be causing this? For my skincare routine I only use philosophy's purity face wash with my clarisonic mia 2 with the normal brush head & I wear smashbox acne primer or soemtimes bare minerals primer and makeup forever hd foundation. Could any of those be cauing my problem or could it be the fact that the cleanser is getting rid of bacteria thus causing the breakouts to occur?
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've been hijacking threads lately with my various color challenges. It's time for it's own place! The rules: Each week (Sunday- Saturday) there will be a new color to incorporate into your makeup looks. It can be one item of that color or a whole face. Try to incorporate it 4-5 times during the week, and post your pic, or discuss your colors here with everyone! If you can only do a day or two, that's fine too! This should be fun! For folks on a No Buy, it's a great way to Shop your collection.

There is a line that has buried itself in my heart (and my pocketbook), and it is Guerlain. I know Im not the only one out there. I thought I would start this thread for the discussion of all things Guerlain, skin care, makeup, perfume, places to get good gwp or good samples. Experiences people have had, looks people have created with the products. For me it all started with a makeover by Guerlain's own Marie Line at my local Neiman Marcus. She spent an hour with me and I left feeling calm and happy. As a mother of 4 year old twins and as a doctor I spend my live rushing through the day, often without enough sleep, more often without enough water, taking care of everyone else. It shows on my face, in the fatigue in my eyes, in the puffiness and dark circles under them. While I have been blessed with good skin it can be confused, aging (I bought my guerlain the day prior to my 40th birthday), but still with an oily t zone, and with patchy dry spots on my cheeks likely from the dry air in my medical work environment. One of the things she said to me was- make it about a ritual for you, and dont leave it until your going to fall asleep. I walked out with the orchidee imperiele gel cream, eye and lip cream and white/brightenining serum. It was a birthday gift to myself. And now every night I sit down for 15 minutes and wash my face and slowly carry through the ritual. a ritual of energy expended and renewed. Breathing in the soft smell of the orchids. Im still using a cleanser and exfoliator from another line given how much I spent, but I have seen substantial change in my face in the 3 weeks since. so thats my story, and I would love to share a discussion with other lovers of Guerlain, especially as we eagerly anticipate the 2015 holiday collection.

I love seeing other peoples empties! So I decided to make a board where people could post pictures of their empties, or just tell us about them! I'd also be interested in knowing whether you're repurchasing anything or not.
Ive been looking for a good foundation for my skin type (sensitive oily skin) and would want to know what others have tried and loved. I recently walked in to my local Sephora and got samples of the Nars and Kat Von D foundation and disliked both of them.I felt like it made my face look too "cakey" and after a few hours it started settling into creases (if that makes any sense). What are some foundations that you have tried (ppl with oily skin) that have worked for you and you absolutely love? I know powder helps too for my skin type so if you can recommend a powder too that would be great. Foundations I had in mind are: Tarte, Too faced, and Lancôme
I'm looking for an eyeliner for sensitive eyes. I have quite a few eyeliners that burn my lid after applying them and leave it red and puffy. I would prefer liquid with a felt tip. Any help would be great!
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!!!
Hi everyone, I was thinking that it might be fun to have a thread where we could post extra-good cash back and rebate opportunities as we see them. I know many of us use them and we could alert each other by subscribing and posting here when we see the rebate/cash back levels change or when there is a new, can't miss opportunity up. I know we can get those through the news updates from MrREbates, Ebates, and the Dealstoogoodtopassup thread, but I was thinking it might be good to have a dedicated thread to share beauty and shopping e-rebates..I personally would rather here it from BT than the Ebates newsletter I checked and did not see a thread similar to this currently running-but if there is already a thread, please let me know. When we are all planning our sale and holiday purchases, every 1% counts! So Sephora is now back up to 8% I also saw that Nike is 10%
I noticed that it's November and no November Haul thread is up...so I hope it's okay with everyone that I started one. I don't usually post on this thread but love reading it. Heading into the holidays a lot of our purchases are for others...so not so naughty...
Ok, this needs to be done. Starting this thread has been mentioned before, but I'm taking the leap. Below, I'll start a list of commonly mispronounced beauty brands, so please comment if you want to correct me or add another brand. This is for all you perfectionists out there! Anastasia : ah-na-STAH-see-uh Borghese : bore-GAY-zeh Boscia : BOE-sha Bourjois : boor-zjwah Caudalie : COE-dah-lee Chanel : shun-NELL Chantecaille : shahn-tuh-KAI Ciate : see-AH-tay Clinique : clih-NEEK Ellis Faas : EHL-is FAHS Estee Lauder : EHS-tay LAH-der Givenchy : zjee-VON-shee Guerlain : gare-LAHN Illamasqua : il-lahm-MAS-ka Jouer : zjoo-EH Jurlique : jer-LEEK Koh Gen Do : coh gen doh (hard g) Kevyn Aucoin : KEH-vin ow-CWAH Korres : koh-REHZ Laura Mercier : LOH-rah mehr-see-AE (r is a French nasal r) Lancome : lahn-comb L'Occitane en Provence : LOHX-ee-tahn uhn pro-VAHNCE LORAC : lah-ROCK Marchesa : mar-KAY-zuh NYX : nix Ole Henriksen : OO-lah ON-rick-son Omorovicza : oh-more-oh-VEET-sah Shiseido : shih-SAY-doh Shu Uemura : SHOO oo-eh-MOO-rah Stila : STEE-lah Yves Saint Laurent : EVE sahn loh-RAHN Feel proud if you've been saying them right! We're all pretty much brand snobs here, be it Neutrogena or Tom Ford. Also, the French people are annoying. Most of these brands are French!
I recently finished all of the eyeshadows in the UD Naked 1 palette and I am looking for a replacement palette of neutral shades that are both matte and shimmery. So far, I am considering Too Faced Chocolate Bar Lorac Pro (first one) Urban decay Naked 2 MUFE custom trio ( mainly for M846 😻) What are your experiences with these palettes? i don't trust youtube or blogs for reviews because Im not sure if the posts are sponsored or not. Feel free to add your personal recommendations 😃 ( No Viseart pls. They are out of my budget.) Thank you and apologies for the novel I just wrote lol.
Hello!! I recently visited a Sephora store and I was looking for something for the night that will serve as preventative for fine lines and etc. Now I am only 25 but I have been using Caudalie Detox Night Oil and I love it. I got a sample of Black Pine Antiwrinkle Firming & Lifting Night Cream and I love it! The smell is amazing and I feel like it brightened my skin and the texture is smoother and it just looks better. Can I actually use it? And should I try it with the other Korres Night products?
