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!!!

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've been on the Ipsy waiting list, but still look at the thread. I thought we could have a shared thread from all the subscription boxes (including non-beauty ones likes underpants and lifestyle such as Wantable and POPSugar). That way we can live vicariously through each others goodies!   (I know there are unboxing videos on YouTube, but I do not have the patience to sit through a five minute video about someone apologizing for the state of their hair. And I know there are blogs where I can see photos, but everyone usually gets different items in their boxes)

I received an email from QVC the other day that said Kat Von D makeup will be launching on their network on September 21, 2015. It will be an hour show from 5:00 pm - 6:00 pm CST (3:00 pm PST, 4:00 pm MST, and 6:00 pm EST).     For those of you who have never shopped with QVC before, they often offer exclusive products in each beauty line they offer.  I buy Tarte products from both Sephora and QVC, and QVC: (a) offers exclusive Tarte products available nowhere else, including holiday kits and palettes (there is a QVC exclusive Tarte eyeshadow palette with brush available on QVC's website now) (b) often packages products to provide a better value (i.e. will include a brush with foundation and palettes, will sell a set of three lipsticks for the price of two, and will offer super sizes of popular products for the price of a regular size), and (c) launches beauty products and maintains exclusivity rights for a period of time (such as Tarte's Rainforest of the Sea Water foundation coming out this month).   I know at this point it sounds like I work for QVC, but I promise I do not, I'm just excited about the potential of obtaining exclusive Kat Von D products, having her products packaged to offer a better value, and seeing Kat present her products and any tips or hints she might provide.   I would be remiss if I did not mention the drawbacks of shopping at QVC - shipping is expensive ($3.00 for each product, not each order) and it seems slow.  Sephora has me spoiled with free 2 day shipping, and that is why I will continue to split my beauty purchases between Sephora and QVC.  :-)

  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. I hope you'll join me!    Week 7 Aug 30- sept 5: PLUM

Ok, I know that another user started 5-6 threads about Nars build your own pro palette. I'm hoping to successfully start one that won't draw as much annoyance.   I'm excited that Nars is offering a custom option! I remember a past thread about building your dream Nars blush palette. It's now a reality! You can choose more than blush though and there are two palette sizes.   Choices   So, so many color choices and you can buy replacements and/or additional individual colors to switch in and out of your palette. The cost is not cheap, but if you love Nars and you know the palette will get used a lot it becomes an investment. There is a small price break which is good. For instance, blushes cost $21 vs. $30, duo eyeshadows $25 vs. $36.   I haven't ordered a custom palette, but if I did it would look like this. Colors are listed in the screenshot above.

Are there a lot of us? I had 1,200 points roughly and I haven't gotten a response. Pretty sure I emailed within the first few hours of the announcement.  Granted, I'm not a rouge member (yet!). I wonder if that makes a difference. Shall we wallow and wait together?   *Offers to holds hands*   Edit: Here is a screenship from the Sephora Canada website page:    ITS GOING TO BE OK PEOPLE <3 Hopefully.

I am 24 years old and I get random breakouts. I cannot use any acne products that are harsh because it makes my skin red and itchy. I use a cleanser , toner, and moisturizer every morning and night. Is there any other product I can add to my skin care routine to help

A little birdie (a quite credible one) told me that Black Up Cosmetics will be coming to Sephora in September! I'm pretty excited to have another brand at Sephora. I tried the brand recently on vacation and I really enjoy the powder products. From what I'm told, Sephora will carry the entire line. Haven't heard yet if it's online too, but I know it will be in 18 stores at first. The line primarily has been marketed to Women of Color, however, there are so many products that I see are universal.  Has anyone tried Black Up yet? Any favorites?

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!

Now that Sephora has sent out the email offering those who were affected by the Epic Rewards a $50 promo code, what are you going to use it to buy?   I am really hoping that the Kat Von D Mi Vida Loca Palette really is released on September 15 because I think I may try to hold off and use my code towards that!  If I can't hold off there are a few things in my basket that I may finally pull the trigger on.  I have the UD Afterglow Blush in Score and the Burberry Kit in there!   I can't wait to see what you all have your eyes on.   Here's a copy of the email in case you haven't seen it yet!

I have fantastic skin. It's really great, it's soft, it's clear, I have adorable freckles and a natural glow. Thus, I don't do foundation. Foundation takes away from my naturally awesome skin, and highlights any texture imperfections that may arise(puns). I have been rocking BB cream for a while now, and experimenting with different brands and their levels of coverage. For example, I found that Tarte goes on a little too much like regular foundation for my tastes, and doesn't absorb into my skin in the lotion-y fashion that I love in a BB cream. I am starting a new job soon, and, while it didn't matter at my old job, I would really like to be able to look composed at the new one, despite my horrible affliction of "Irish Redface". Whenever I feel any kind of emotion, I am instantly flushed. Agitated, stressed, annoyed, excited, have a headache: REDFACE.   Sooo my question is, what can I use that will control my vibrant face colors without just totally covering up my actual face? Would a CC cream be light enough to still make my skin look and feel like skin while camouflaging my red moments? Should I try a combination of products, putting BB cream everywhere, and supplementing with extra coverage on just my cheeks?
