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.   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 ...

Beauty Confessions
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.

....i used 'jubilant'. i waited all month for this (for those who know what i'm talking about). I MEANT TO USE "JAUNTY". I SHOULD NOT MAKE POSTS AFTER HAVING A SAKE COCKTAIL. fail.   ok....what have been my favorite things this month ???   PIXI glow tonic . i only got this toward the end of the month, but i love it. i use it in the morning before i put on any serum/oil and moisturizer (typically after i use the CLINIQUE *mild* clarifying lotion, if i happen to use it in the morning, sometimes i don't). it smells really nice yet not overbearing at all. can be sprayed over makeup to refresh your foundation if it's looking a bit patchy / dehydrated. totally works ! ....which leads me to CLINIQUE mild clarifying lotion . this is the only one in the range that does not contain alcohol. i wish it were called something different, actually, because the clarifying lotions have SUCH a reputation. but with consis use over the past month, i've found that some stubborn congestion on my chin has gone away completely, due to the salicylic acid. while things like the FAB pads give good 'glow' and help with gentle exfoliation (with the glycolic and lactic acid), the salicylic is good for stubborn unclogging. NYX lip liner in pale pink . it is quite pale, almost greyish pink. but because it leans grey rather than blue, it doesn't look garish or too "barbie" (which is great for a lot of women but not on me). just a unique color which is a good base for nudey pink lips (particularly with the slightly warmer MAC honey love, my go-to and always-favorite.) SEPHORA COLLECTION eyeliner in 'strawberry macaroon' . perfect waterline color. can look very natural, but also great for smokey eye looks because it gives a bit of that heroin chic sheen when contrasted with darker liner/shadows. can't beat the price. i put this in my favorites a couple months ago, i think, but i've only been using it regularly this month. i'd be remiss in not mentioning it again.   SHISEIDO wetforce spf 50 . because it works. and i really needed something that works WELL while in hawaii. i'm proof because i easily could've turned full-lobster if using anything less effective.  BUMBLE AND BUMBLE hairdresser's invisible oil shampoo, conditioner and hair "primer" . this is the only shampoo and conditioner i've used all month (which isn't saying much as i only wash my hair once a week, really, but still)-- with the slight exception of putting AVEDA dry remedy hair masque on the ends (which i will consider a monthly favorite, too). my hair is more manageable than it's been the entirety of my growing-out process. i've loved any b&b shampoo and conditioner i've tried, really. highly recommend. edited to add: sake cocktails . because they taste like whatever heaven you mix the sake with (in this case: watermelon juice and lavender) and leave you feeling STUPID and happy.    alright ! how about you guys ?

Starting a new thread for Sephora inside JCP exclusives!   They often have some awesome sets and exclusive perks, so if you have one near you, it's definitely worth checking out!   Aaaaaaand starting with these two!   JCP exclusive Favorites Set: Ultimate Cleanse $34 for 8 deluxe samples (honestly all a little bigger than deluxe samples) AND you get a certificate to redeem for a full-item (listed below)!  I honestly think this is the first time they've included a certificate in a non-mascara or fragrance kit, and I'm SO EXCITED (and definitely went and bought the set immediately after work today).   And here are the values of the full-sized products! Algenist 5 oz Cleanser $38 Boscia 5 oz Cleansing Oil $28 Dr. Jart+ 8.4 oz Dermaclear $32 Josie Maran 6 oz Argan Cleansing Oil $32 Murad 6.75 AHA/BHA Exfoliating Cleanser $36 OleHenriksen 7 oz African Red Tea Cleanser $30 Peter Thomas Roth 8 oz Cleansing Gel $38 Philosophy 8 oz Purity Cleanser $24   Aaaaannndd second! Sephora is forever spotty with promotional emails, but check your inbox, you may have received this email! I just grabbed mine today and it's ADORABLE, looks just like the picture. It unfortunately is only one per email, and you have to scan the barcode in the "print offer" link so you can't forward it to your friends, but you got the email, definitely go get yours!   I'll update this as things pop up! If you find anything great from Sephora inside JCP, feel free to share it on here!

I'm not sure if anyone knows but MUFE is revamping this formula. im kind of sad, since i do like the original. And its a really good match :/   if you search for thestyleandbeautydoctor she has a review up and theres a chart for the new shades. Mine is  very low so il be waiting  til i run out and the new one is available to try. My shade is 117 which is now Y225. I guess il keep my bottle to compare the color as well.   40 shades anyone else/ thoughts?   I also read on another blog: "Has the formula being changed?"   -As Dany said - they "did not change the formula, but added new ingredients to make it better". *  hyaluronic acid  (to bind moisture to the skin) * amino acid coated pigments (to stabilize pigment) *  mineral mica (to create radiance)

All Other Concerns
Hello, ladies (and possible gents)!   So, I'm wondering how can I even out my skin tone. I have blotchy, discolored skin - lighter in some areas than others, and even after putting foundation and powder on, you can still tell that the color is a bit uneven.   It also makes my blush appear reeeally blotchy and uneven and that bothers me to no end. Is there some sort of trick for this??   Also, for those of you who have breakouts and/or acne scarring on your cheeks, how do you conceal the area without rubbing the concealer off when putting on blush and highlighter, etc.? This doesn't happen when I conceal other parts of my face, but I think it may be due to the fact that my scars are so dark.

Hi, my name is LCResz, and when I fall in love with a brand I explore it from top to bottom! I know everyone on here is a bonafide beauty addict, so let's celebrate our obsessions! Remember, the first step is admitting it is not a problem, it's a collection   Here are all of my Jo Malone perfumes and oils, not including minis because my love of minis is well documented in older threads   Post your addictions, er, um, collections of single brands here!

Your favorite products? Recommendations? In other words - Let's Talk everything Becca!!!

So I have been talking to so many fellow BT ladies lately. And all have been amazing. In my conversations the topic of where everyone is from came up, and swapping care packages with your regional goodies. Is this something anyone else would be interested in doing? Kinda like the awesome maple Canada candies lol and me being from Louisiana, well, we have our own breed of everything down here!

I bought some cosmetics today in the shop, and I used my beauty insider card. But the card number in my card and in the receipt are different, and I do not have points for today's shopping in my card when I saw my account. How can I fix it?

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!
Stores & Services
Just an idea but one I would love to see. I always see make overs happening in the middle of the store. And although all the make up is there and others can watch for educational purposes I never had one done because its so open. Having a private consultation in a separate room would be ideal. You wouldn't have to worry about people watching you and you could be more comfortable asking questions. Is this a possibility? How many of you would like to see this? If you got a make over was it a good experience?

We are excited to announce that as of this past weekend, we have started shipping to Canadian addresses from our new warehouse in Canada. By being able to ship directly within Canada, our clients will receive many new benefits, including faster processing and delivery times, elimination of duty charges and the addition of new brands and items to our Canadian product assortment. If there are certain favorites that appear to be out of stock, try searching for the product by name; in some cases the product item number for the product may just be different now. For other products that no longer appear on the site, we apologize that this is due to language compliance on packaging that is required to adhere to by law in order to ship within Canada. Please continue to check back as these products may become available again in the future. Q: What are some of the brands that have been removed? A: SK-II, Perricone MD, Drybar, Sunday Riley, select Murad acne products, and La Vanilla are not available for now, but we are working hard with all our brands to get their packaging Canada compliant so that we can offer them to you in the future. Q: Which brands have been added? A: We recently added shu uemera and Biotherm. Q: Why are some brands no longer available on Sephora.ca but available in store? A: Depending on the region, some Canadian stores may be able to carry these brands due to French language compliance. Store assortment is not affected. Please contact your store directly for specific product availability. Q: How do I find out if Sephora.ca still carries the products I love? A: Search by the product name as the product item number (that is used in your basket or love list) may have changed. Q: Will I still be able to get early access or limited edition products and promotions? A: Yes! We are working hard to get the hottest launches that are available and compliant for our Canadian clients. Q: How much faster will I get my Sephora orders? A: Much faster! Because we are now shipping from Canada, you save the time between our US distribution center to Canada. Q: Do I still have to pay duty on my orders? A: No duties are charged now that we’re delivering from Canada. Q: What about returns? A: If you aren’t happy with your products, returns are now free! Q: Will this move affect my BI points? A: Yes, actually. Your BI points on Sephora.ca will now be allocated based on the CAD list price, vs the USD price.

Can someone please tell me a foundation that doesn't make my face look all caky!! I feel like all the ones I try I end up having major cake face! I'm not looking for full coverage, but just a little more than a tint. Please someone help!! 
All Other Concerns
I have a good amount of acne/sun damage scars. Any suggestions on a good product to have them disappear over time? My cousin is currently getting laser done to get them removed, and that is an absolute last resort for me...(basically I REALLY don't want that to happen) What products do you recommend/how long does it usually take for you to see results?
Makeup
Getting buzz on YouTube, anyone try it? If it was less than $30 I would have ordered on the spot, looking to find a dupe for my Teint Idole, but turns out they cost the same!    Still kinda interested though...

Good Morning, I was interested in puchasing the BECCA Champagne pop bronzer.  I don't see it available on the site....can you assist me with this please?
Dry
I don't know what this is, but I just have dry, flaky skin just at the creases of my nose that are particularly visible when I wear makeup (mineral or liquid) and I don't know how to get rid of it. I've tried good moisturizers, but it doesn't seem to work and it's very isolated to just the nose crease. I do have dry skin in general, but a good moisturizer usually takes care of any dryness EXCEPT here. It's not so much "patches" of skin, it looks maybe more like pores that have flaked off or something. It's hard to describe. Maybe I will take a picture. Does anybody know what the heck I'm talking about? lol If so, what skin regiment would you recommend?
