Its my 14th Birthday Y'all! BT FAM-I-LY! ALL MY BT SISTERS AND ME!
Good morning my dolls! Today is my *Dun da da dun!* 14th BIRTHDAY! Many of you have known me since I was just twelve years old. There are many tender memories and sweet laughs that have happened here at BT, and always knowledge to be shared. I've made many good friends here and experienced sisterly love like none other. When I was obsessed with a boy earlier this year who turned out to be a lying, disgusting piece of crap Y'all were there for me. When I cut five inches of my hair off in my room one night then proudly posted a few pics, y'all were supportive and kind. Here's to us BT, We are family!   Wild and love Skye <3

Are there makeup brands that you're just not into?
Are there any popular brands, sold by Sephora or anywhere else, that you just aren't into or don't consider for whatever reason - consciously or subconsciously?    Like, for me, for whatever reason, I don't even know why, I never even look at Make Up Forever or Cover FX... and probably plenty of others. But obviously plenty of people love both brands and promote them when people are looking for products.

LUV TB: Lost Unicorn for VIBRouge Traveling Box
--closed-- Box of awesome high end items and unicorns, show me yours and I'll show you mine, lol. While I’m not “ancient”, I’ve been on BeautyTalk WAY longer than I ever expected and have made some very good friends….as well as been enabled into getting WAY more makeup, lol. It is getting a bit overwhelming and as much as I like pretty things, my style is more minimalist, so I don’t reaaally need 6 or 7 jars of Guerlain meteorites etc. To help revamp/reorganize my stash as well as having some fun with the awesome friends I’ve made, I’m doing the LUV TB.    It contains lots of makeup that I love but never use, altho I couldn’t bear to part with any perfumes or majority of the skincare, so you ladies will have to make up for it along the way. Keep it classy, with high end and preferably new or lightly used things. No drugstores. Since it’s got tons of expensive items, I asked people I trust who are interested, so the box is closed. If it goes well, I may do another one next year when I've accumulated enough treasures. =P   Expand below to see the rules, taken from the awesome roxystar4 and slightly simplified:   Spoiler (Highlight to read) * Please make sure every item is in a plastic ziplock bag to prevent spills.

Cakey Foundation is Ruining My Life!
Hello! So pretty recently my foundation has been acting up. Whenever I apply foundation I ALWAYS get this cakey, dry skin look. I do have dry skin but I always exfoliate and moisturize before I apply my foundation. That being said I also have acne. And normally that's where I find it cakes the most but I don't have acne all over my face, even where I have smooth skin I see that it's cakey.  The cakey makeup won't go away. It's also seems like you can see the peach fuzz on my face, it's so weird.   I use my Laura Mercier foundation with my Cover FX liquid foundation brush. I put on my NYX Pour Filler primer and put on my foundation. I truly put on a thin layer, a thin enough layer that I still see the redness from my acne (which I dislike but I'd rather have my acne showing than a full of cakey makeup.) After putting on my foundation I would normally set my face with a matte powder (which makes the cakey makeup look even more worse.) Add bronzer and blush (height of the cake.) I have no clue what to do anymore. I've tried different foundations, all the way to pricey top of the line ones, to drugstore ones. I've tried different ways of putting the foundation on, my fingers, a sponge, a brush. I've tried BB cream. Nothing is working. Can anyone please save me from this makeup nightmare? Thanks in advance!

Eye Cream Overload
Hello! I'm currently looking for an eye cream to incorporate into my skincare regimen. I'm almost 20 and don't have any specific concerns with my eyes. I've tried a few samples from different brands (Kiehl's, Chanel, Sephora), that target a specific eye concern, but nothing has wowed me. Though I find eye creams to be a bit of a drag, I realize and understand the importance of having an eye cream I can use daily. Suggestions and helpful feedback is greatly appreciated!

Hair Routine for Thick, Frizzy, Dry Hair?
Hey So I've always had very thick and very cource hair that is naturally very frizzy and puffy. Because my hair is very cource, it's also very dry on the ends. My hair is kind of straight, but it's also very, very kinky and flips out all over the place so it has a few loose waves. As I'm growing older (I'm now 15), my hair is getting harder and harder to manage as I get so many flyaways and it's so hard to put it in a ponytale, even. The last year or so I've been straightening my hair everyday and although my hair doesn't get especially damaged as it's so strong, it takes such a lot of time and effort, and I'd love to stop doing so but it looks crazy if I don't. I also dry my hair using a hair dryer, also I don't blow-dry it properly as it's very difficult on my hair and takes such as long time. Although heat is meant to cause more frizz, I find that if I let my hair dry naturally, it's even more crazy. My hair is quite dry but it tends to get a little greasy sometimes, so I tend to wash it every 2 to 3 days. However, I do find that it's shinier and more managable a couple of days after washing my hair.  I'd love to put together a better hair care routine, but I don't what would work well on my hair! Any reccomendations, tips or ideas? Thanks so much ! Oh and I live in the UK if that helps productwise.

What was your very First purchase at Sephora and Why take the plunge?
We've all been there...a bag full of unused or disappointing make up from the drug store, which I still like but without the ability to try before buy you end up with a lot of fails. Then you find Sephora and wonder, is the price worth it? You try a few things, you like a few things, you see the price tag and tell yourself: "Eh, I can go with ramen noddles for a week to afford this." And then you buy it. What was your first purchase? Why did you choose it? I always like hearing other stories like this. Share on!

Q. Best product for acne scars?
Hi all!  I've been browsing the forum and found many suggestions for acne scar treatments.  So I was wondering what the best product is for acne scars?  I don't want a spot treatment or a peel, but an overall face serum/treatment.  But I don't want a face lightening product (I don't want to lighten my whole face/complexion).    Also, can I use these acne scar treatments in conjunction with another serum (such as an anti-aging serum)?  Thanks ahead of time for your advice/suggestions/answers!

HACK FOR SWATCHING LIP STICK OR LIP GLOSS
Not wanting to swatch lip products directly onto my lips, I found a paint chip that is close in color to my natural lip color to swatch onto. My bare lips have a lot of natural color. This hack works for me about 95% of the time. This is also good for determining coverage and pigmentation. Hope this is helpful.

Sonia Kashuk 15 Year Anniversary Brush Set
  I don't know if any of you ladies know about this but Sonia Kashuk just came out with a LE 15 piece brush set in celebration of their 15th anniversary. I just picked up the last one in my town today during my lunch break. I personally think this is a steal. It is $40 at Target.   If you can find it, I suggest to get it right there and then because this set is sold out almost everywhere and each Target in the US and Canada each get 2 sets. Go on to Target's website and use the "find in a Target store" and click on "pick up in store" if it shows up to reserve it. Sonia Kashuk is trying to keep it in stock but it keeps selling out. This set will be available until October according to their customer service line.     If anyone wants to know how they perform, let me know and I will do a small review here on BT.

How long does it take you to do your makeup?
I have a pretty comfy makeup station and I do love me my products and I pretty much use everything from soup (primer) to nuts (setting spray). But I've noticed that instead of getting faster, I'm just getting slower and sloooower in my makeup application. I really enjoy the process of putting my makeup on - it's probably my favorite part of the day. But I feel like it's taking me a ridiculously long time to do my fairly simple everyday look (I don't vary how I do my makeup TOO much from day-to-day). So I used the timer on my phone for the past three days: 42, 50, and 52 minutes! Yikes! You ladies have seen my makeup. Nothing on my face should take 52 minutes! I know I take a long time doing my eyebrows - they're always a trouble spot for me. I'm going to TRY and speed myself up over the next few days so I can at least have more time to walk my dog in the mornings before work.    So I'm curious...how long does it take YOU to do your makeup?
