-RESOLVED- So I have this car that WAS in prestine condition.....until I got into a car crash that renders it undrivable because the hit bent everything in one of the wheel area. The price of repair is half what I paid for the car (despite the fact it's only 20-30% damaged), and it's undrivable so I don't think I can sell it as it is now. So now, I'm not sure what to do with it. Anyone have any experience with broken/crashed car? ps. Sorry to be really really off-topic, but I'm not sure where to ask. T.T
I purchased the Benefit Advent Calendar through Sephora and as some of you know, I ended up receiving the wrong product on day 1 of the calendar (should've got a coralista blush and instead got the a-lister gloss). I spoke with a customer service representative from Sephora and they suggested I speak with Benefit since it was clearly an issue during the processing phase at Benefit. For the record, Sephora offered me a refund but since they were sold out of the calendars that was my only option and I really did want to keep the calendar. So I contacted Benefit. They immediately tried to pass the buck off to Sephora and say that it was their problem. So off I go again talking to Sephora. The customer service representative from Sephora was wonderful! She contacted Benefit on my behalf and offered them proof of purchase for me in hopes that they would be able to assist me. Back to Benefit once again, I spoke directly with a manager. I told him that I didn't want money, or a brand new calendar, or to make out like a bandit. I just wanted the coralista blush sample that they manufacture and that I should've got in my set to begin with.I had already e-mailed them a picture of my missing item and the item I got in it's place (on the day I should've got the a-lister gloss, the door was empty). I then gave the manager my order number from Sephora (to again, prove I purchased this legitimately) and I mentioned the Sephora representative who contacted them on my behalf. Again, Benefit claimed there was nothing that they can do. I told him that they obviously don't stand behind their product as there was a mistake on their end and they weren't even willing to make it right (I even offered to pay shipping for them to send me the itty-bitty blush)! So because they were unwilling to remedy this situation and wanted to hold on to a blush that cost them a miniscule amount to make, they will lose out on much more since I will no longer be a Benefit shopper. Sorry for the long rant, but bad customer service is something I can't stand and think people should know about.
Hello ladies! I was thinking about perfumes and scents I really enjoy and was wondering what some of your favorite scents are! I'd love to hear what your thoughts are. I personally am a fan of perfumes with vanilla and citrusy notes. Florals I can find enjoyable too but sometimes they can be overpowering. Edit: Some people have been asking me what some of my favorite scents are. I don't really have a signature and find I switch it up, depending on the season and mood I'm in. I do like: -Clinique Happy -DKNY Be Delicious -G (from Gwen Stefani's Harajuku Girls line) -So This Is Love (Sephora's Cinderella line) -A Whole New World (Sephora's Jasmine line)
Oh my goodness.... this is the first waterproof mascara I have used in a long, long time, and it is absolutely impossible to get off!! Does anyone else use this? Do you know what I'm talking about? What do you ladies use? I usually use MAC Pro eye makeup remover, and it works awesome on stuff like Hourglass Film Noir et. all... but doesn't budge this stuff at all!
Hi all, I'm looking for long wear lipsticks for olive toned skin. Specifically, reds. I'm drawn to deeper reds, so nothing fire engine-y. More purple-reds, berry reds, etc. I'm open to any shades that work well as I don't usually wear very pigmented lipstick. Any advice for a newbie?
I just wanted to wish everyone here on BT who is a student--at any stage in their academic career--a big GOOD LUCK on finals, and Happy Holidays to you and yours My boyfriend reminded me earlier today: 50 minutes of studying, 10 minutes of break, and repeat. That's the best ratio, apparently. My ten minute break is just about up, so, back to studying I go! Hugs to all of you and don't forget to eat before your tests! <3
I am a book lover! I would rather read than do anything else! So just outta curiosity, What are you ladies (and gentleman) reading? What's your favorite genre? I just finished Blood Vivicani by Beckett And I am starting a reread of The song of Ice and Fire (the game of thrones series) My favorite genre by far is horror and Fantasy.
Is there really such a thing as a CURLING mascara?! I have tried numerous mascaras, but to no avail! And this is after heating the curler with my hair dryer..they seem to straighten out my lashes after I apply mascara. I have been using Urban Decay's Supercurl Curling mascara, which seems to work a little better. I have black, relatively thick, STRAIGHT lashes. Any help is greatly appreciated! Thanks, Mama Ca
Since pipsqueek1582 so graciously offered her free items to us and there were enough items to start a box, we are officially opening Traveling Sephora Box #9 - 2013! I offered to help set up this thread with the rules and list of participants just to make it easier for everyone. I am calling this box #9 because box 7 split into 2 different boxes. The rules are basically the same as previous boxes which I borrowed (cut and pasted) from previous threads. 1. Please, NO DRUGSTORE items! 2. To keep things moving as quickly as possible, I'm requesting that people with U.S. ADDRESSES ONLY participate in this box. (I'm sorry Canadian BTers! ) 3. Once the box comes back to pipsqueek1582, she will donate what is left to a worthy charity in her area. 4. If you do not see your name on this list from the previous thread, or would like to change your spot on the list, please post a request and send me a PM if you are able to swap with someone. 5.

Previous TSBs have used either the Priority Mail Flat Rate Medium or Large Box (comes out to $12.35 or $16.85 with tracking & shipping confirmation). If you are going to participate, please be prepared for the shipping costs! Here is how it works: Pipsqueek1582 will fill a box with products and send it through USPS to the next person on the list. They will go through the box, take what they want, add their own items in, then send it to the next person. What you need to do: 1. Send a Personal Message to the person before you on the list with your mailing address right away so there's no delay in shipping. 2. Start collecting, sanitizing, and labeling your beauty goodies. Please label swatched & sanitized on a plastic bag or with a removable sticker instead of using a marker on the product. 3. Read through the Rules below to know what is allowed & what is not allowed: Allowed: ☆ High-End products and items you got from subscription boxes ☆ All opened items must be labeled ("swatched", "opened", "tried/used"…) ☆ Fragrance if it's in a spray bottle (can be 1/2 used too) & must be wrapped ☆ Nail polish must be tightly closed & bubble wrapped/bagged/in a box ☆ Makeup as long as you've cleaned it with alcohol & it doesn't have big fingerprint marks/dents in it ☆ Mascara if it's sealed and/or has not been used ☆ Tools/Brushes/Cases/Bags as long as they are clean ☆ Anything that is sealed ☆ Skin care items in tubes & bottles Jars only allowed if it's sealed or unopened ☆ Items will be organized in bags by type.

Keep the Value of items equal ☹ Swatching items in the box 4 Do not keep the box for more than 3 days.

1. Since it's becoming a harsh winter around where I live. I would like to cure my cracked, chapped, sometimes bleeding lips. Something for this winter only, or all year around. I have plenty of chapsticks..but I don't know which one is the "perfect" one. I'm getting sick of curing it, then the very next day it's like I've done nothing to it. 2. Is there a product out there to grow my eyebrows even faster? I would like to have full, beautiful eyebrows. After that I want to get it waxed cause I know I have extra hair around that needs to be taken care of. I can't do it right now due to the fact that they are still growing, and semi bald on one. I've plucked my eyebrows almost all my life and I'm fed up with it making one mistake after another , I can't do it nearly as good as a pro does. 3. Also I want my long lashes again, because in my past I did something that makes me regret what I've done, they are still growing, but really fragile. I would like a product that can continue making them grow and also make them stronger. That way I can start wearing mascara again....I miss wearing it.
Where you finally know what you want? (even if it's somewhat vague) I had one of those today. I know that I want: to go to school (i turned 26 in the fall but better late then never) a truck ( yeah, i'm 5"3 but whatever ) to fix my credit and get a credit card again to learn how to skate well to learn how to play the violin to stick to a healthy way of eating (so those extra pounds with come off) a new fashionable wardrobe (in a smaller size ^) and more make up What do you want? (It can be anything )
I just ordered new foundation and other items yesterday at about 3 pm. Im in Baltimore. My UPS says it is already sitting on my doorstep since an hour ago. WOW! I know there is a distribution center here in MD but it has never been delivered so fast!!!! Go Sephora during the holidays! Now lets hope I got my Dior lipstick promo and not a sub.
'Tis the season of engagements. That, plus kellsmuneoka's thread about Ridiculous Prices and IllegallyBlonde's Engagement Rings thread, made me start wondering about wedding dresses. If you're married, what was your dress like? If not, what is your dream dress? How much are you willing to spend? I'd love to hear your thoughts! Although I'm engaged, I haven't even started looking for a dress because we won't start planning the wedding until my fiance moves up here...but that should be happening soon! My research has now begun by watching marathons of Say Yes to the Dress lol. Anyway, rant and rave away!
So I realized the other day I was $50 away from obtaining VIB status. Today I went into SiJCP and spent about $25 (trying to save money for a big shopping trip my sisters and I will be doing the day after Christmas. I plan on doing a large haul, then). Anyway, my points have updated from my purchase from today, everything I bought is showing up in my beauty bag, but it still says I'm $50 away from VIB status... Does this take longer to update?
Lovely ladies of BT, I have a dilemma. 'm using the Sephora brand eye makeup remover, and it does an okay job but not great. And my eyes are pretty sensitive. Anyone have something that works well and is gentle? Even a home remedy would work.
Anyone know what Maracuja Concealer shade i would get if I wear Medium Sand by Tarte's Amazonian Clay 12-Hour Full Coverage Foundation SPF 15? Light medium? Medium? I'm 3Y07. I like tarte's stances on no animal testing and not adding harsh ingredients that's why I wanna stick with this brand Thanks and here's a bunny
I really love Dior Brow styler- for the natural look it gives my sparse brows. But at $38 I have to go through at least 4 a year. Any alternative suggestions that will do the trick for my overplucked medium/light brunette brows? Have tried powders, they look too cake-y. Need a thin pencil/gel combo. Please help!
So, what is everyone's favorite polish remover? I'm looking for suggestions because my nails have been peeling like crazy, and I'm guessing my polish remover has something to do with it. It's a never ending cycle because my polish chips quickly because of the peeling, and then it gets dried out even more from the remover. Help!

I really want to try the Bobbi Brown luminous faoundation. Unfortuantely not available in stores near me and it's not included in the color IQ. According to the Bobbi Brown website Alabaster is paler than porcelain. But on the sephora website porcelain is listed first. Does anyone know which is the paler shade? Im extremely pale (nars Siberia is too dark) and I've heard that alabaster is one of the palest shades availabale. Does anyone know? Thanks!
So I finally gathered my favorites from the recent Holiday Haulin' and took a few snapshots! Anyone else want to share? Starting off with nails. Julep Mind your Mani set -- LOVE the Mighty nail & cuticle serum because it's so easy to apply and absorbs really quickly. Would definitely repurchase this one separately! Sephora X The System (chose Standout from the Neutrals line, love it!) Sephora + Pantone Elemental in Confetti Here's what Standout and Confetti look like: Made use of the UD offer with Melt, Sellout, Desperation, Naked . Seriously these are so high quality. But wish I'd gotten a midtone rather than Sellout. INGLOT!! wooo! woooo! So excited to see these instore at a Macy's! 330, 402, 326 Cargo in Tonga (yes, poshified's fingerprints are all over my holiday haulin' what can I say, she has good taste ) Awesome everyday color, perfect for just giving my face some definition after foundation. Tarte in Thankful, Hello Kitty Apple Balm in Cherry Blossom (I buy these up whenever I see them in sale bins...really a lovely gloss). What's in the tiny bag? MINIS! Auuugh! They are too cute! It's almost a full face in a teeny little makeup bag! (Yes I am obsessed with mini makeup) Bare Minerals READY eyeshadow and blush Marvelous Moxie mini lip IT Cosmetics mini Bye Bye Undereye concealer Bare Minerals mini Stroke of Light CARGO mini eyeliner Trish McEvoy makeup planner with lots of goodies Laura Mercier Custom Portfolio, also with lots of goodies A few fun LORAC items! Samples galore! Wooooooo who doesn't love deluxe samples!
Swatches really help me when I'm making purchase decisions so since I find the pinks and purples of the Naked 3 palette so appealing, I thought I would swatch the purples compared to existing Urban Decay products. I have the Naked 3 eye shadow palette AND the Naked 3 double sided liner. I swatched the purple liners I have: Tornado (exclusive to Ocho Loco 2), Delinquent , Ether , then Rockstar with Blackheart (Naked 3) and Darkside (Naked 3) liners. I also swatched the eye shadows Rockstar with Blackheart (Naked 3) and Darkside (Naked 3). For me, Rockstar has been one of my top liner and shadow colors, and I LOVE the Blackheart and Darkside colors, both as liners and as shadows, from the new Naked 3 line. Hope you find this information helpful!! (BTW, I swatched Blackheart first because in the palette it looks light it would be lighter than Darkside, but obviously that is not the case with the shadows!!)
