Outstanding October Hauls!!
It's midnight in New York and you know what that means... it's October!! I don't care if I'm in California, I'm still making this post hahaha.    I started my haul at CVS because my sister had $10 rewards for beauty and I used that towards lipsticks for my kit.    I got Wet n Wild lipsticks in Sugar Plum Fairy, Wine Room, and Mauve Outta Here. I also got a Milani lipstick in High Voltage. I paid $2 for 4 lipsticks!   I went to Ulta to pick up NYX Dark Circle Corrector and the Essence Lipstick (4th one above) in Wear Berries   THEN, I went to Sephora to pick up a free deluxe sample of Bare Minerals lipstick in Speak Your Mind and my MUFE Birthday gift!     PS my birthday is October 18 hehe

Heartbreaking article...felt the need to post
I just stumbled on the most heartbreaking article entitled "An Ugly Woman's Honest and Painful Response to Being Mistreated Goes Viral". The photo that accompanied it spoke very strongly to me.     The article links to the original post by a Reddit user describing what should have been a great night out with friends that I've included in the spoiler. These are not my words, but I totally understand how this woman feels. All of us at one time or another have had these feelings or encounters like this. As a relative newcomer to this beauty board I've experienced great interactions with other BT community members and seen mostly positive interactions. I'm posting this with the hope that in reading this individuals will be encouraged to pay it forward or step out of their comfort zone in regards to their own beauty or perception of beauty. Stop someone on the street and say something nice, volunteer at a women's shelter or donate to a cause that helps/empowers women. Share your own stories within this thread and find support. This article really moved me and I just felt compelled to share it.   Spoiler (Highlight to read) "Warning: wall of text ahead I am an ugly woman. Objectively, I really am. Please don't argue with me on this one, Reddit. I am not overweight, actually in better shape than most women my age, I dress well, I am great with makeup. But last weekend the world just had to remind me that despite all this, people will go out of their way to kick me. I don't often go clubbing, but Saturday night was a special occasion. A friend was celebrating her 21st, and it was also the weekend after a long week of brutal exams. It felt like a good time to blow off some steam. Because I don't often go clubbing, I really tried this night to look nice. There was an outfit that I had bought a long time ago, but that I'd never worn because it was a little sexier than what I usually wear. A close friend had picked it out for me when we were shopping, and, in that "you go girl" kind of way had urged me to buy it. I did my makeup painstakingly, straightened my hair which always takes forever because my hair is huge, put on that too-sexy-for-me outfit. And when I looked in the mirror I was even surprised at myself. "Wow, is that me? I actually look...nice!" I showed my friends. They all said I looked great. And they MEANT it too. Like, genuine happy encouragement. I could tell they were sincere and it made me feel so good, like for once I wasn't just masquerading as an attractive girl with fancy makeup and clothes, but that I WAS the attractive girl. I hadn't felt so attractive in ages, Reddit. When we got to the club, we got a nasty surprise. We had been told that tonight there was no cover charge for girls, and so none of us had brought much cash on our person. Well, our info was wrong. They did indeed ask for a cover. Only one of us 6 girls had cash, and she only had enough to cover two people. When we got to the door and found this out, a group of guys behind us volunteered to help us out. They each forked over a couple of bucks to cover my friends, but not one of them offered to cover me. One by one my friends were let in and they waited on the other side of the door until everyone got through. The guys were doing everything to avoid eye contact with me. They were looking at the ground, the street, pretending to look through their wallets for cash to cover one more girl. It was so painfully obvious that I felt like just going home. Luckily, my friend with the extra cash covered me so I was allowed in. Well, once we were inside I thought I could just forget about that incident. I had dressed up and come out, to have a good time and relax. So for a while I danced with my friends. It wasn't long before other guys started dancing with us. We kind of paired off slowly, there was a guy whose two buddies had started dancing with other girls and he was left alone. At that point I too had lost track of my friends and was alone. He started dancing with me, but the whole time he seemed really distracted. Not once did he really look at my face, he was kinda looking around the club the whole time, like he was browsing the scene for another, more attractive girl he could bounce to. In less than 10 minutes, he had seen one. He peaced out without a word, and I saw him dancing a few minutes later with a very attractive brunette. The way he acted with her was just SO different than when he had danced with me. He was face to face with her, smiling, dancing enthusiastically. That made my stomach drop. I went to the bar, found one of my friends who was sitting there with a guy. She introduced us, he bought everyone drinks. After a while I felt like a bit of a third wheel so I went back to the dance floor. Eventually my group of girls regathered together. Everyone had a guy, except for one of them who had a bf at home. So I danced with her, with our friends and their guys near us. There was a photographer going around the club, taking pictures of the people there. I assume it was for some promo for their website or something. He got to our group, and literally circled us several times, taking several pics from different angles. I was kind of psyched about this, so I did my best to look like I was having a good time, made sure he could snap me at my best. But after a while I realized he wasn't circling us to get our best angles. He was trying to get a frame without ME. If I moved closer to the center of the group, for instance, he would tilt his camera a little the other way. I couldn't believe it until finally, he actually came up to me and asked me to get out of the shot. I felt so ugly right then. For all the effort I had put into looking and feeling good that night, it seemed like it just didn't matter. So the night ends with me leaving the club. My friend with the bf at home who was dancing with me left with me so I wouldn't be alone. The rest of my girl friends didn't notice what had happened with the photographer, so when they asked me where I was going I just told them I was tired and wanted to go home. And since I wasn't leaving alone, they let me. So yeah, that's my story from the weekend. Please be kinder to ugly people, Reddit. Maybe one of the people I met that night will read this post and recognize themselves. I hope so, if only so they can know how behavior they're barely conscious of can affect someone else. EDIT: I have always been a lurker on Reddit so I'm not sure if I can find out who gave me gold. But thank you, stranger! I will enjoy this gold while it lasts.

What is your favorite/most wanted item from Sephora?
I am very close to Rouge, and I need recommendation for things to buy, lol. So will you tell me:   1. What is your expensive-but-worth it buy? 2. What is the most expensive item on your wishlist? 3. Are you going to get Rouge next year?   For me: 1. Sephora traincase and Karuna mask set. The traincase is heavy duty and have a lock, at least 1 or 2 always go on sale and it's especially worth it to buy then. Sheet mask individually isn't expensive but since it's one use, it adds up. I like the fabric and the serum from Karuna.   2. The SK-II set and Issey Miyake L'Eau D'Issey Lotus fragrance. Has anyone tried the fragrance? it looks/sounds like something I'd love, lol.   3. It depends on if I can gather up enough things I want to buy in the next two month. =O

Black Friday 2014 Anticipation / Information from 2013
It hit me a few days ago that Black Friday 2014 would be here soon!!! I happen to just love love love Black Friday shopping.   I am not a morning person, a total night owl actually, so I've enjoyed that the last couple of years there have been more stores opening late on Thursday. (I don't support folks having to work on Thanksgiving just so I can shop but I won't wake up at 3 am to be at a store for a 4 am opening - I'd rather just stay up and hit a midnight opening - just a personal preference).   Last year Sephora branded their Black Friday deals as "Dealtopia". As in years past, they had some amazing $10 deals. Some were online only and some were available both in store and on-line. On-line, we were limited to two items of each deal, but many of us made multiple orders. In-store, some locations held to the two item limit of each deal, and some didn't and they let you buy more. What is always the great mystery for on-line shopping is the exact time that the deals will go live. I want to say that it was midnight EST time. Last year, the online shopping was a bit of a nightmare. Anyone remember entering the "queue" where you were advised not to hit the back-button, or refresh, else you'd lose your place in line? With some patience, many of us were able to find our desired deals.   My local store opened at midnight and when I got there at about 11:45, I was about the 15th person in line. There was only one "aggressive" shopper, who was behind me, but went kinda crazy when the doors opened. She knew what she wanted and by gosh, she wasn't afraid to nudge you out of the way to get there! Other than that, it was crazy busy but nothing horrible. They had many of the deals sitting on the main front display, but they also had some employees who had rolling carts with some of the items. Finding that "one" item you just had to have was tricky if it wasn't on the main display.   To get an idea of what the deals were in 2013, I recommend googling "Musings of a Muse Black Friday 2013" to see the great details she posted including great pictures. Captured below is the list of deals from 2013, as found on The Musings of a Muse site.   In addition, I just took a photo of the ones I bought last year that I still haven't used or given away. I think my favorite $10 item was the Josie Maran set, which included her Bare Naked Nail Wipes (20 count) and a 1 oz. Whipped Argan Oil Hand Cream in Vanilla Apricot. I think the "hot" item was the Philosophy Purity wash. What was your favorite?   Note that Sephora did most of their Black Friday advertising using Pinterest and Facebook. I do not remember how many days before Black Friday they posted what the deals would be. Do any of you remember?   All I know is that I am really excited for 2014!!! Anyone else have some tips/lessons learned from 2013?   2013 List   Lorac Fan Favorite Duo Wei Pore Purifying & Brightening Collection Philosophy Limited Edition Purity Made Simple 12oz Tocca Florence Travel Fragrance Duo Bite Lush Lip Trio Sephora Collection Sparklers Brush Set Clean Fragrance Trio Bliss Soapy Suds Body Wash and Bubble Bath (16 oz Lemon Sage, Vanilla Bergamot, Red Orange and White Pepper, or Grapefruit and Aloe) Too Faced Better Than Sex Amazing Eyes Set (Too Faced Eyeliner and Better Than Sex Mascara) Stila Artful Eye Collector’s Edition Vol. 1 Stila Artful Eye Collector’s Palette Vol. 2 Stila Artful Eye Collector’s Palette Vol. 3 Stila Collage of Color Lip & Cheek Palette Tokyomilk Takeout Kate Somerville Dermal Quench Liquid Lift Advanced Wrinkle Treatment (0.50 oz) Josie Maran Argan Hand Healers Set Vita Liberata Rich Face + Mini Mitt Duo Living Proof Gift Set (1 oz Full Conditioner, Full Shampoo, Prime Style Extender, and 0.5 oz Full Thickening Cream) Formula X Asap Real Nail Lacquer Duo Pack Ole Henriksen Clean Sweep Duo (frican Red Tea Foaming Cleanser and Truth To Go Cleansing Wipes) Boscia Pore Perfection Set (1oz Black Mask, 1 Pore Strip) The Art of Shaving The 4 Elements of the Perfect Shave Set Smashbox Heat Wave Lip Gloss Set Buxom Full On Lipstick in Havana Alterna Caviar Moisture Trio Buxom Curtain Call Set Nails Inc Crystaltastic Nails Lavanila The Healthy Deodorant Vanilla Grapefruit Mini Bare Minerals Enchanting Eyes Tarte Little Miracles Best Selling Essentials

Holiday Packages for Friends
This year I'm preparing for Christmas a bit earlier, in order to take advantage of the 20% off VIB sale this year, and was wondering what other BT'ers here usually like to buy for their friends.   Most of my friends like makeup, and like to wear it, but only wear it about once a month if at all. There has been many hysterical conversations where they've admitted to me why they don't buy mascara. It's because they feel wasteful about using it only a handful of times before it expires.   Needless to say, every year I buy and hoard mini's of everything for the glorious fun day of girly squealing.   The mini's I typically keep for gifting are mascara, eyeliners, primers, perfume, and other bits and bobs. Oh, and a travel skin care set in a small makeup bag.    This year has been pretty generous with me, and I was thinking of adding something really nice with each package. Any recommendations?   What do you like to give your girlfriends?

Goodbye Rouge (the bittersweet edition)
So I'm about $400 away from re-qualifying for Rouge. I commented earlier this year that my goal was actually not to re-qualify. I'm not sure I will make it, since the promos (they are the ones that get me- always!) are so good these days. Also, of course, the holidays are coming up along with the VIB/Rouge Sale(s). As I am ready to part ways with Rouge, here is the bittersweet rundown:   Loves: I loved the free shipping you offered! I loved the awesome Rouge promos I got and were offered (even the ones that I didn't choose to get)- I loved them all I love access to the Rouge board and getting to see what my fellow Roug-ies have to say!   Not so great: I didn't really get to partake in any events but in the past, VIB events seemed to last the whole day. So you could go in whenever and all SAs would be so great and giving (of samples) during those events. I could have purchased the shipping for a nominal fee of 20-25 dollars and it would have been just as nice. Actually, I don't remember placing any orders less than $35 anyways so it wouldn't have been that bad to meet the $50 minimum offered to everyone. I spend so much money on makeup and have so many dupes to last a few lifetimes over! (Although sometimes I would rather quickly swipe Tarte over my eyelids than UD- lol) Free Rouge Gift- I know Rouges have harped on this quite a bit throughout the year and I see action taken to make us happy, but that elusive gift just never came.   I guess as a consumer I've started looking for the best deals and know that the biggest voice I have is with my wallet. Therefore, it is with both happiness and sadness that I let this status go. Like I said, I'm not sure where I'll end up at the end of the year, but I am OK with it either way.

  So I wanted to browse for a lipstick similar to a LE from NArs and see if I could find something like it but I didn't...nothing can compare. Anyway, I noticed in the middle of the store they have a lot of Benefit products and a big stand.... I didn't see any benefit girls which I fond odd, otherwise why did they remodel the whole store.... is this happening in every ulta?  I'm not hating on benefit, there's some products I do like, I just found it odd.

Clarisonic Smart Profile - First impression Review!!
I was very lucky and blessed to win the Clarisonic giveaway last week and I received the device kit yesterday in the morning!! Let me first say, Thank you Sephora and Clarisonic for this awesome giveaway!   I didn't expect Sephora would send me the kit this fast though.  (BTW, am I the first winner who got this??)  I couldn't move any faster to open the box. The device kit was much bigger than I thought it would be, plus a congratulation memo from Sephora .   I roughly went through the manual first and learned that I have to charge the device for 24 hours prior to the first use. So I charged it and tried it today. I think I've never been excited to go home and wash my face . Who knew I would be this excited to take off my make up, lol.  As soon as I came home, I ran straight to my bathroom and used the device. And you know what? It's AMAZING!   I've been using Neutrogena Microdermabraison system over a year. And it's the only cleansing device I've ever tried. I heard a lot of good things about Clarisonic, but I never reached out for one because of its price tag. I'm more of a makeup girl and I don't spend my fortune for skincare. I was quite happy with my Neutrogena system and would've been forever happy with it only if I didn't know how good Clarisonic is!!   As I'm entering my late 20's, I've noticed that my pores are getting bigger and I spotted more blackheads on my nose. These were the reasons I bought the Neutrogena system at the first place. But holly molly! Clarisonic is so much softer and moisturizing(?) and also doesn't leave me the tingly or itchy feelings and redness on my face that Neutrogena always gave me.   I think it's the brush that makes the biggest difference. The Clarisonic brush is so soft compared to the Neutrogena pad (not brush). The pad has a bit of sand feeling on the surface (Feels like a scrub that has really big particles in it). And I don't get how it could even moisturize my face. I guess moisturizing is not really a proper term here, but I actually feel like my face is very moistened after using it without any noticeable redness on my cheeks and forehead. Every time I used Neutrogena, my face turned quite red for a few hours, but Clarisonic didn't make my cheeks that red at all! My face is very smooth and feels like baby skin now. I can't stop rubbing my cheeks (perv alert!).    I also have to mention how nice the device stand is. The stand makes easy to place the device. And the charger is magnetic. These are just little something, but very nice little something . Overall I think this device is so worth the money and deserves a good review.   I was actually ready to criticize this product before using it. I didn't want to be all so nice because I got it free. Yet I'm only telling you guys how good it is because I can't literally think of any con right now. (I used it only for once. I'm not sure if I'll find some cons in the future.)   If I knew Clarisonic is this great, I would've bought one with my own money a long time ago. I'm wondering how Smart profile is different from previous models though. Anyway I'm seriously so thankful for this giveaway to let me have this wonderful device in my life! What a beautiful night for me!!   *I didn't mean to write this long.. but I had so much to tell you guys!! lol

I get the logic how the Clarisonic works. Does your dermatologist allow you to use any kind of exfoliator or scrub though?? Cause if I don't exfoliate (facial scrub or c... see post

Please help! I'm 36 and have the oilest face ever!
The plus side is I don't look 36 but the downside is as a professional I need products but I've tried just about every primer and oil mattifier out there.  I also have done all the suggested changes to my skin care routine.    I'm an accountant and HR representative always on the go so I can't stop to keep reapplying.  Blotting just takes the makeup off and eventually I have uneven skin with makeup in some areas and other areas where it looks smudged.   I have spent about $1500 overall in products that are supposed to clear up oil and keep my skin matted but that has yet to happen.   PLEASE HELP!

I'm Easily Enabled (hangs head in shame)
Just yesterday, I marveled at how well I'd been doing NOT buying things I don't need... Than Chanel came out with the LE Holiday Quad. I resisted for about 16 hours, and today, a friend told me she got it this weekend, and that was all it took; It's on it's way to me. SMH. Anything lately enable you this easily?    (isn't it pretty?!?!)

New To Colorful Eyeshadow/Eyeliner.
Hey ladies, I have a few questions I would like to ask your thoughts on regarding eyeshadows / eyeliner as well as lipstick .    Question 1 : I would like to know how I can introduce the idea of adding color into eye looks I create ?. I've always been one who tends to lean more towards neutrals simply because they tend to look so polished and flattering on me. However I have felt lately I would like to experiment with color and see so much that inspires that drive to want to try my hand at color. However I feel slightly intimidated by wearing color for fear of messing it up. I find it a bit overwhelming really on how to pair colors up so that a look will blend nicely. Is there a place I can go that can give lots of color combinations or ideas on looks that may be of interest to me ?. I do frequent Youtube a lot and so that is always a great place to check out as well.    Question 2 : In regards to different techniques of application. I've always done my eyeshadow the traditional method lid, crease, brownbone. I wanted to play with different application techniques of eyeshadow. Is there a site that has pictures that explain different ways of applying eye makeup ?.    Question 3 : Eyeliner is one aspect of eye makeup I enjoy as it brings the looks I wear together. I use the Maybelline Eye Studio Gel Liner and it works wonderfully on my upper lash line however anything I put on my waterline is a complete fail. I tend to have VERY sensitive eyes that water a lot especially in the winter. Nothing I ever tried has stayed on my waterline and I feel disappointed because it's aspect of eye makeup I want to master. So if you know some secret tips that are able to make it stay put that would be great.    Another question is pairing colored eyeliner with eye looks, what colors go best with what looks ?. I've seen a fair share of great colorful liners but not sure what pairs well with them.    Question 4 :  This is about pairing lipsticks with eye looks that will make the look come together well. I have A LOT of lipsticks in an array of colors and I want to know how to pair them with both Colorful and Neutral looks.

Quick Fix for Makeup Fails?
My routine is pretty automated in the mornings and I don't have any extra time. I guess I wasn't really awake today then when I packed a whole lot of MAC Cranberry onto my 239 and laid it on. Heavy. Before work.    I can wear those colors I love, sparingly, on work days, but this was a bit much. Worse....when I used a nice brown for my crease color there was enough Cranberry that it blended in and lifted the tone higher.   i just wore it for the day but wondered if there isn't time to do a re-do, are there quick fixes for things like that?   Neutralize a bright color?   Tone down a shimmery shade?   Tone down blush? I have a really dark burgundy blush that is potent on my fair skin, even a little is easy to overdo. If I use a duo fibre its a little lighter, plus I can apply finishing powder, that tends to tone it down. Any other tricks?   Just wondering if you have quick fixes for these or other makeup situations.
