I went to my local Sephora today and one of the girls told me that after the holidays all of the Lorac products will be on sale. They're not going to carry the line any longer I went home and checked online (with fingers crossed) to see if perhaps it would just be my local Sephora losing the line, unfortunately they barely have anything online! I'm so sad right now!! Why Sephora, why????
I have received a new card as I am now a VIB, but online it still shows my points only earned as a BI member. I noticed that the two cards have different barcode and since becoming a VIB I have spent quite a lot of $ so I would very much like to add this new card to my existing account. Is there a way I can do this online? Thanks so much, Lindsay
Just saw the reviews for this collection coming out on the 26th on Temptalia's blog. Anyone else excited for this? I think I'm really loving the blushes and skinfinishes! Pretty highlighters are easy catching the eye aren't they?
Since we all had so much fun doing wedding themes I’ve decided to take the liberty in creating a board.
If you’re married, what was your wedding theme?
If you’re engaged what are you planning on doing for your wedding theme?
And if you’re still looking for the perfect significant other to go with your dream wedding theme what is it?
For me, I’ve always wanted something kind of whimsical. I LOVE the idea of renting out an old theatre for a classic old Hollywood-esque themed wedding or doing a carnival themed event haha.
For the old theatre theme I’d probably want to hang movie posters up featuring my SO and I. We could have a red carpet (don’t think I’d wanna do the whole cheesy paparazzi thing) though.
Most people look at me like I’m a nut when I tell them about that, but when I say ‘think Water for Elephants’ they quickly catch my drift.
For a carnival wedding I’d want fun foods like sliders, a French fry bar (with different dipping sauces like aioli, chipotle, etc), cotton candy martinis. I’d also want to hang upside down parasols around or do oversized paper lanterns.
I have no problem speaking my mind in public or to strangers, but for the life of me cannot bring myself to tell someone they have bad breath or are wearing too much perfume. Would you tell someone that they are wearing too much perfume or cologne? A friend, family member, coworker or stranger? Have you done it and what was their reaction?
It may be a little bit early but I am already thinking about my resolutions for the New Year. Wondering if others are doing the same? Here are a few of my top resolutions: In 2013 I obtained a lot of makeup and learned application. For 2014, I want to work out and eat better so my insides are as beautiful as I try to make my face and hair. I am going to work a bit more on staying on budget. I can get lured in pretty quickly by sales and limited edition items. That will still be fine in 2014 but I will have an amount I have per month I can do that with. I want to "pay it forward" more, and just practice more random acts of kindness. I am surrounded by wonderful people in my life and I love my friends here on BT - I feel very lucky and want to share, even in small ways, with others. Wishing everyone a safe and happy holiday season!!
I saw this going around on Youtube and I wanted to see what you ladies have to say and what you decide. I don't have all of these palettes, I stated the ones that i thought fit the category best. Some I do have though! Here are the questions! 1.) Best Packaging 2.) Best Color Payoff 3.) Most Versatile 4.) Best for Travel 5.) Biggest Regret 6.) Best Color Names 7.) Least Used 8.) Most Used, Most Loved, Desert Island 1.) Best Packaging I have to give this one to Marc Jacobs. Their packaging is the beautifulest I have seen! I do not own it… YET! lol but from what i have seen, it is so sleek and beautiful!!! 2.) Best Color Payoff UD Naked i believe has one of the best color payoff out of most palettes! 3.) Most Versatile I think the Disney's Ariel Palette is pretty versatile since it was a collection of colors and finishes! 4.) Best For Travel . I take the Naked Basics palette with me whenever I go on a trip. It is small, compact, and it has neutrals that go with everything and range from day to night. 5.) Biggest Regret My biggest regret was probably the UD… i don't even know the name of it. It is a small square palette and is purple on the outside and has a bunch of shimmery colors that i NEVER use! 6.) Best Color Names I have to give it to the upcoming Too faced Chocolate Bar ! it has such yummy names that make you just want to eat the palette!! lol 7.) Least Used That once again has to go to that UD palette. I have NEVER used it and I have had it for a while. 8.) Most Loved Has to go to my Lorac Pro Palette . It is my baby! I use it all the time and create any look with it! I am in love with this baby! <3 lol
I just saw Frozen and it was great! I wish Sephora would sell palettes for Elsa and Anna! Elsa's song "Let it go" was probably the best song of the movie along with her building her awesome ice castle. I found the whole clip with the animation on Youtube and I keep replaying it. Also if you go to see it there's a clip after the credits of Marshmallow. The next Disney Princess movie looks like it will be Moana a Polynesian but it won't be out until 2018. The main character will be Moana Waialiki, a sea voyaging enthusiast, and the only daughter of a chief in a long line of navigators. When her family needs her help, she sets off on an epic journey. The film will also include demi-gods and spirits taken from real mythology They did release a picture of concept art and I read it will be computer generated like Frozen and Tangled.
Okay so I used to have decent eyebrows naturally, but one day I got overzealous with my tweezers and ruined them. My brows used to be twins but now they're like sisters (maybe cousins). For whatever reason I can't color match a product for my eyebrows to save my life (and neither can the SAs at Sephora)! I need a brow powder/brow gel/brow product match. Any suggestions?
I have about 7 eyeshadow palettes, and since I want to give love to them all, I use one palette each week. The next week, I rotate it out for another one. I do this for a couple of reasons: First, it really makes me think about the colors and how to make different looks from one palette. Second, it gives me plenty of opportunity to try a palette before I say it's a failure (I'm lookin' at you Smashbox Heat Wave palette).
YAY! May I present, another SUPER heart party for the thousanders who have contributed SO much here and haven't had their heart parties yet! Here's a fashionably late party for all you wonderful ladies. Congradulations to Titian06 for 1000+ hearts! I definitely remember seeing your helpful advice around but didn't realize you are not on my friends list yet but I'm adding you here now/anyways. Cheers for the first 1000 hearts! Congradulations to CrayzeeRN for 2000+ hearts! And for always bringing a little sprinkle of cheerfulness to all the posts you make. =D Congradulations to Drrragon for 3000+ hearts! And for the random chats about nerdy stuff. Always good to see a chic nerd around, and *high five* for becoming a fellow new meteorites owner. =P Congradulations to Nebel for 3000+ hearts! And for always being so cool/collected amidst heated discussions. Whenever I see your name I have an image of yoga and "Ommmm..." in my head despite the "exasperated" dog avatar. Congradulations to Dannyc for 4000+ hearts! My fellow skincare addict who started THE first traveling Sephora box on BT and started my mini-lipstick obsession by passing me the mini Bite rouge lippie. =O Cheers to many more helpful/fun posts to come! () () (^.^) ~Happy holidays! (v v)o
Howdy ladies! After all the good deals this yr I've completely exhausted my spending and any reason to buy anything. I will be on a no buy until mid-Jan (if Jan really is skincare month then that means I've still got 15 days after that for whatever promo, no excuse!) My Christmas/New Year resolution is to spend just enough to qualify for VIB for the rest of the year , and I'm going to try fund most of it through Swagbucks/Bing Rewards/Ebates (PM me if you want to know more about those sites). With that said, this is a no buy thread for the first 30 days, a palate cleanser if you will, for next year. Anyone/everyone is welcome to join me. This is not meant to bash any particular products, but if you post then I'll give you reasons why you should delay the purchase, consider the alternative, or why you don't need it. I will keep all my disabling to this thread, so please, ladies, let's not turn this into an enable thread . =P Now then, will I succumb to exciting advertisements and fancy packaging? or will I hold onto my will power and succeed in actually saving some money?
Heh, I just lost 40-50 hearts in the last 20 min, so either someone suddenly decided that they REALLY don't like me, or some threads I got really passionate on got deleted. Which reminded me of something: - Can you please notify the original poster when a thread is closed or deleted? I know mods move threads around to appropriate sections, and recently have started to post a note about closed threads, but last time one of my thread was closed, it was done quietly and since I made the thread, I would like to be notified if it's closed. - Can we/the poster please have the option to edit the title of the thread? I'm not sure how easy/difficult this would be, but it would be very much appreciated if we can have this option. - Can we please please please have the subscription page somewhere obvious? It's almost impossible to find it. I subscribe to threads I'm interested in but it takes me ages to find the page where we manage our subscriptions. Perhaps put a little icon beside the PM on our side profile? or some link on our main profile page? And the font color / size / family still don't work . These options have been taunting me since the beginning of time. I would appreciate the option to make my posts pretty. Thanks!
Hello there, ladies and gents! Keeping in line with all the fun and interactive threads asking about your most recent halls, items you have your eyes on, what you're currently wearing, what's your hair routine, and more, I've decide to branch out and ask: "What's on your plate?" The beauty world doesn't just stop at skin care and cosmetics, it also goes hand in hand with your overall health and well-being, so with that, I'm curious to see what we're all chowing down and snacking on be it for breakfast, lunch, dinner, dessert, or inbetween! For those with apps that help count calories or to those who just want to keep a log, here's a place to share, possibly find and share some recipes, and even tips on maintaining a balanced diet. Don't just share food items, but even drinks! I'm a huge fan of tea and at least have a cup of green tea a day (anti-oxidants) and drink plenty of water. For lunch today, I had: -Brown rice -Steamed egg -Steamed red snapper with green onion, sesame oil, and black pepper -Gai lan (it's a type of Chinese vegetable/greens) Now, tell me, Beauty Talk world, what do you have?

Well, my Mom survived **major** back surgery this past week, and is in recovery. I flew out to take care of her during her first week. Since she is out of commission and taking major pain meds, she is not feeling too pretty or in control... so to make her feel better and beautiful, I brought a holiday nail supply kit and did her nails. She loved it so much, and now is feeling very feminine and in the holiday spirit. Funny what a little love and enamel can do! Here is her new look for the holidays:
Off topic.. But I can't do my paper, my job keeps calling me with questions and distracting me like crazy (I took off to do this final today and it's getting nowhere...ugh) Show me your pretty rings, or your dream rings This one is my dream ring: ....Yeah, I want to marry that ring.
I thought it would be fun for us to give shout outs to people who enabled us to buy products we ended up loving! Sadly, I'm sure I can't even remember all the ways I have been enabled on this board this year. Maybe these can be a few last minute gift ideas, ways to spend gifts cards you might receive during the holidays, or even a few ideas for your first purchases of 2014! I would also like to thank everyone for always keeping the board updated with sales and amazing GWPs! Those have been enabling too! And of course Missie772 and rikkie have been super enabling with their amazing perks and promos! Here are a few of mine: Marc Jacobs Lovemarc Lip Gel in Showstopper Enabled by garnett This really is a true red. Applies so nicely and has just the right amount of shine! http://www.sephora.com/lovemarc-lip-gel-P379423?sk uId=1548379 Cargo Blush in Tonga Enabled by poshified Lovely neutral blush that goes with any lip color. Great for those who love bold lips! Purchased at beauty dot com CND Sticky Base Coat Enabled by lylysa Technically, I asked for a recommendation, but I LOVE this base coat. AND it is 3 free! Purchased at Ulta
How long did it take you to get your first subscribers? And how do you promote your blog to attract new subscribers? I just started my blog a week ago and I know it will take a long time to develop a following, but I am just curious about anyone else's experiences regarding beauty blogging. Any tips or advice would be greatly appreciated!
I survived the insanely busy semester! I now have some time to log on! lol. How are you all? I have missed logging on to BT and doing nail art. It feels like it's been forever. Like I said, it has been a busy semester: reading 19 novels for my young adult literature class, plays in Shakespeare, many short stories for my fiction class, a variety of assignments for Teaching English in High School (including listening to four Jane Austen audiobooks), and reading and working on stuff for my online Grammar and Usage class. However, I am now officially a Senior, and I begin my Residency I program in the spring. I'm getting closer and closer to becoming a teacher. Other than all of the school stuff, the only other thing that's happened was being inducted into Phi Kappa Phi honor society. It's is good to be on break. However, I do have an online winter class which starts on Wednesday. I don't think it was be as hectic and crazy as the semester, though lol. I noticed many new usernames, so welcome to BT!! I hope you all have been enjoying the forum. So, how is everyone?
