All Other Concerns
Hello beauties,   Years ago, during my teen years, I worked as a lifeguard at a swimming pool.  Ever since that experience, unfortunately, I've had an issue with fungus on my toenails (one foot only, oddly enough).  If I knew how contagious this was, I would have walked around with flipflops instead of barefoot.  My podiatrist prescribed an oral antibiotic, but after treatment, the fungus reappeared.  Do any of you know of anything topical that I can apply to help get rid of the fungus once and for all?  I'm a very healthy and clean individual, so I'm frustrated to be dealing with such a nasty thing and would be ever so grateful for any advice/recommendations.    Thanks so much in advance!

so i know i did not do a favorites thread last month, i apologize. but here it is ! what beauty things have you been loving the past couple of months ?   i have 2 fragrances: TOCCA - colette and D.S. & DURGA siberian snow . both of these are perfect for grey cold days. now, where i live it's been insanely warm for february, but we still get spurts, and sometimes i can create the "feeling" of the seasons even if the weather is failing to cooperate. colette is cozy and a bit sweet, with juniper berries adding a lovely crispness. siberian snow is a stark and chilled amber and incense with mint (a proper herbaceous mint, rather than a mentholated one); it's designed for women though i think it is very much unisex.    PIXI x CAROLINE HIRONS double cleanse. this should come as no surprise. i particularly love the cream cleanser (crossing all my fingers and toes they end up releasing it separately as i'm getting through it much quicker than the balm). i love cream cleansers, particularly this time of year, and this is my favorite one i've ever used. unlike so many cream cleansers, though, it contains no shea butter (which can trigger break outs on me), and feels quite 'thin' (somewhere between a milk and a cream, much like the consistency of soft creams). it almost feels like it sinks into the skin, but then still wipes off completely clean with a washcloth. in love.   NARS soft matte complete concealer . this is my new favorite concealer. it is my color (chantilly), it actually covers my under eye dark circles (wow) and it blends so easily and seamlessly. i can't imagine being without it now. i had been devoted to the radiant creamy concealer for yearrrrrrs, but these days need more help with the dark bags under my eyes. this has done it.   NARS velvet lip liner . i'm super picky about my lip pencils: they can't be too dry, but what i hate more is if they're too slippy. what i love about the nars liner--these are the proper lip pencils, not the fat velvet matte ones--is that they're a bit thick. i think this is likely polarizing, but the texture helps anything i put on top of it (lipstick, or the velvet lip glides which work magnificently with these) bind to my lips. i find these liners make my lips look fuller and plumper. i want all of them.   AVEDA dry remedy hair oil . this stuff is everything i've ever wanted. a PROPER hair oil that is SILICONE FREE !!!! the past year i've learned that i can't use silicones in my hair--i just need too much product to be effective, then the silicone ends up weighing down the hair and causing breakage. this aveda oil is my hair's best friend--it drinks it up but never weighs it down. adore.   BITE BEAUTY   amuse bouche lipstick - fig . i almost left this one out and i can't believe it because it's been my favorite surprise of the month ! fig is special. on me, i find it to be a skin brightening pink. while it doesn't look particularly natural, it doesn't scream LOOK AT MY PINK LIPSTICK either. i can't quite explain it. but for me, this one is a keeper, and quite possibly my new favorite shade from the amuse bouche line.   i'll add a photo for funsies when i get a chance !

Hauls
Welcome back to the deal sharing fun! Deals shared here may also be posted to my blog (same name as the thread) unless you write for BT only. If I share your deal, I will always thank you here. I will heart every deal I see (without an outside or cheat link) to acknowledge it.   Beautytalk (the forum) does not allow outside links. A heart with no comment means I already have the deal or am deciding not to list it. Please list the retailer (without the link or cheat link; dot com) if it is not mentioned in the picture. Mods come in more often when they see any type of link. Thanks for sharing (original deals and repeats are welcome)! Please also share any deal haul you want, especially mystery gifts.   Discussion is encouraged. A lot of questions come with certain deals or retailers. When I see questions I can answer, I will respond (unless the poster consistently ignores me or someone else already answered the complete question). I read all the main posts (so no need to tag me). If you're replying to a post that is not near the top of the thread and want me or a specific person to see it, please tag us.   If you're posting about something on sale at Sephora, please share it here:   http://community.sephora.com/t5/Hauls/Sephora-Sale s-Section-Get-it-Now/m-p/2122832#M44949

I've been thinking about creating this for a while hoping it can help everyone be organized with new releases.  I know we have brand threads, preview/releases threads, product link threads, etc... and I love all those and hope nothing changes. This thread would be reserved to keep dates of new releases and nothing else. Just like a calendar. I'll do my best to maintain the OP. If anyone has anything to add please tag me in your comment so I can update the thread to keep everyone informed.  I am hoping we can get help from the mods in confirming some of these dates especially in Canada. Thanks in advance to everyone who will participate in maintaining this thread   Link to new products for purchase at Sephora http://community.sephora.com/t5/Sephora-com/2017-S pring-Summer-Found-in-the-Wild/td-p/2667580   http://community.sephora.com/t5/Products/What-s-Ne w-On-The-Site-Today-Canada/td-p/2164948     Sometimes I only know the month of the releases so it will go under that month but with no dates and stay at the top unless I do find a date.   AVAILABLE NOW Spoiler (Highlight to read) ABH 6 new liquid lipstick shades (brand site) ABH lip palette ARMANI Power Fabric Foundation BARE MINERALS Gen Nude Lip Collection BECCA Prismatic Amethyst BENEFIT Dandelion Twinkle BENEFIT Hoola lite and contour stick (Ulta) BITE Lip pencils (22 shades) BOBBI BROWN Havana Brights Collection (Pre order at Barney's) BOBBI BROWN Red Hot Collection (brand site) COVER FX Illuminating Spray (Brand site + Sephora) DIOR Color Gradation (brand site) EL THE EDIT Pore vanishing moisturizer GIVENCHY The Point d'Encrage (Spring) GUERLAIN Happy Glow collection KEVYN AUCOIN Neo highlighters KVD Lovecraft ELL (brand site) LAURA MERCIER Prismatic Glow palette MAC Taraji P.

Soo...You may have noticed on our homepage that there's a super special "App-Only Exclusive Early Access" highlighter event happening soon (That's 2/26, to be exact). Well I got my hot little hands on a couple of the products that will be in the event in a meeting today and I *may* have snuck some pics (okay fine I didn't sneak them, I totally took pics and then asked if I could share them with you guys because I love you but I also love my job).   Anyhoo, the Anastasia Nicole Guerriero Glow palette on the left won't be news to any of you, but OMG LOOK AT THE NEW COVER FX CED SHADE (CED=Custom Enhancer Drops). It's called Halo and you guessed it, it's a Holo. I'm. Obsessed. I've swatched it on everyone within a 5 foot radius and it's legit, you guys.    Both of these pretties will for sale in the app-exclusive early access event on 2/26, so get ready. Meanwhile I may have pocketed the Cover FX drops* so I'll be coming to work tomorrow SHININ'.     *okay fine, I didn't pocket the drops, they gave them to me because I swooned. Again, I like my job and I've never stolen so much as stamp in my life. xo

welcome back to the junk drawer of random beauty thoughts and musings. it has been nearly a year, so i think it is time for a rew RT thread !    when i'm doing my makeup in the morning, my dog sometimes throws a fit until i move his food bowl over to where i'm sitting. i'm certainly not the diva in our relationship. ____________________   THE QUESTIONS THREAD :   http://community.sephora.com/t5/Products/The-Quest ion-Thread-Because-not-all-questions-need-their-ow ...   VINTAGE BEAUTY VIDEOS THREAD ! :   http://community.sephora.com/t5/Beauty-Confessions /VINTAGE-BEAUTY-VIDEOS/m-p/1826210#M69382   SWATCH REQUEST THREAD :  http://community.sephora.com/t5/The-Swatch-Board/T HE-SWATCH-REQUEST-THREAD/td-p/2223212

Do you have a box full of perfume vials and/or a vanity covered in perfume bottles? Are you the Goldilocks of perfume, just looking for the perfect signature scent? Do you want an opportunity to post daily about how your perfume of the day smells oaky and smoky with hints of blackberry and currant, like a cigar in a whisky barrel rolling through a Mediterranean orchard on a breezy summer morning?   If you answered yes to any of the above, or you just want to hop on board for the ride, join us for a 31 days of perfume challenge starting January 1st ! Some of us from the 25 days of lipstick challenge wanted to continue the fun and exploration, and since many of us have so many perfume samples, we thought this challenge would be perfect. If you don't have 31 perfumes or hate everything that doesn't smell like Meyer lemons and fresh goat cream, that's fine--we're just aiming to use the neglected perfumes we have laying around and incorporate them into our perfume rotations.   And if you want more perfume vials, there's no better time than now to take a peek at Sephora's samples section.   Edit: Anyone can join in at anytime! We're here to support, live vicariously through, and encourage everyone in their olfactory adventures!

Skincare Stories
I was thinking we should have an "official" NUDE Skincare thread, in case something comes out of this new NUDE story that is happening lately. ( And even if not. ) So we can follow it all here. There are some threads, but those are more just questions and inquiries about NUDE stuff. It would be easier to have all things NUDE at one place, so we can all share news, updates, those possible new products, and anything NUDE here.   This is an announcement on Beautycounter about NUDE Skincare:   "It is with great excitement that we announce Counter Brands, LLC, parent company of Beautycounter, has acquired the worldwide assets of NUDE Skin Care, Inc. and NUDE Brands, Ltd. founded by Ali Hewson, the wife of musician and social activist, Bono. As a result of this deal, and their genuine interest in our products and mission, Bono will join the company as an investor and Ms. Hewson will join the Board of Directors of Counter Brands, LLC. Similar to our partnership with Target, this validation from such respected public figures will lead to increased brand awareness and client base. We are thrilled to have them join our team. The synergy between our two companies – from mission to ingredient selection process – makes NUDE a logical and compelling addition to our growing brand portfolio. We believe that incredible things are possible for our business and our unwavering advocacy work in D.C. For the foreseeable future, the Beautycounter and NUDE lines will exist as they do today."   They also said:  "“We will continue to sell through their existing channels of distribution,” Renfrew said of Nude. “The idea is to grow the channels of distribution as well as the product line as a whole,” she said."   Also: "NUDE products are currently available in the US on Sephora.com, across Europe in Space.NK stores and online, in Australia in Mecca stores and Mecca.com."   Response from Sephora's CS ( 6/30/2016 ): "The Nude Skin care line has been highly anticipated with our clients, and we can certainly appreciate your interest! At this time, some of the NUDE products are limited edition and will be on our site as supplies last, while other products are on our site to stay! We suggest staying tuned to Sephora's promotional emails, as new product launches are frequently announced via email. Additionally, keep checking back on our website under the Quick Link "Just Arrived"."   If you have any news, please feel free to share them here. If you have questions, post them here, and hopefully someone will have answers. Or we can all "investigate" together and try to find out what's cooking.

Didn't see FEBRUARY HAUL'S THREAD, so here We go! All about our LOVELIES 💕❤️💕❤️💋🌹  
Unnude_1.jpg
Lips
If you're on BeautyTalk, you're probably well-aware of the nude lip trend and may even own a handful (or three) of these shades. While I love the trend, I still can't seem to find my "perfect nude" so I am very excited to start talking more broadly about UnNudes! UnNude lip shades offer a spectrum from standard nude shades to more bold, neutral shades. These are the mauvy brown, deep chocolate, rose-goldy-earth toned neutral shades and they come in a variety of finishes (matte, metallic, creamy and shiny).    Here's the challenge: rock an UnNude lip look between Monday, February 6th- Tuesday, February 28th. No requirement on how often to post but I'm going to try for every weekday!    Keep in mind, this challenge overlaps Valentine's Day so I am also challenging you to change it up by wearing a bold neutral instead of the typical red.  (Hint: red is not an UnNude!)   Check the spoiler for examples of some of UnNude shades. Can't wait to see your take on neutral lips! Spoiler (Highlight to read)   EDIT: I have changed the timing. This challenge will run through the end of February so keep the UnNude looks coming!

Spoiler (Highlight to read) Guidelines: Trade items that are equal in value and brand quality or better. For example, Dior for Guerlain would be a good trade, as would Too Faced for Tarte. Do not trade Dior for Tarte. Do not take more than you put in. Please ensure your trade is adding value to the box. Trade full sized items for full sized items. Do not take all of one category from the box. For example, do not take all the palettes or masks. If you’re not sure if an item is appropriate, post the item and ask the group. Allowed in the box:  Mid to high end products (think brands sold at Sephora, The Bay, Nordstrom, etc). Anything that is sealed (as long as it fits with the other guidelines) Skin care items in tubes & bottles. Jars only allowed if it's sealed or unopened. Keep non-beauty related items to a minimum (please do not overload the box with makeup bags, cases, etc). Packaging & Shipping All participants must provide a tracking number for their shipment, posted to the thread upon receipt. Package things carefully (bubble wrap or tissue paper if possible) and put things in labeled Ziploc bags. Try to leave the TSB in better condition than you found it Items that are more fragile (like perfume bottles) should be bubble wrapped individually Shipping should be within 3 days of receiving the box!! Calculating Values: New items: full price Clearance items: full original price unless they are long-term residents of the clearance section (i.e. OCC lip tars in original packaging) Used 1x or swatched: 90% value (original price x 0.90) Lightly used: 80% value (original price x 0.80)  This applies when an item was used more than once but at least 90% of the product is remaining. In other words, the item hasn't been used more than 3 times. Deluxe samples: calculate based off largest size available of said product. For example, if a deluxe sample is 0.5oz, and the full size is 2 oz and worth $60, then the deluxe sample is worth $15.  These must be new, untested, unswatched. Courtesies: Don't put in anything unsanitary! (any product that you “dunk” a wand into or you dip your fingers into (like lip gloss or mousse blush) if they’re not new and unused. These cannot be sanitized. Same thing goes for rollerballs. Post a picture and write info of what you took and left, with their condition and value – this way members can weigh in on the trades before shipping Include close up, open photos of any items that will be sealed that you cannot see the color through. This includes lipsticks, palettes, blushes, etc. No reserving items in the box for others and don’t ask to have any items reserved for you - this is unfair to others participating Don't swatch items from the box even they are swatched or used!! Swatched/used items must be labeled as such. All opened items must be cleaned/sanitized prior to their addition to the box Sanitizing consists of spraying the item with a makeup sanitizer, or making your own with half parts 70% alcohol and water. Try not to put in LARGE full sized items, like large bottles over 8 oz. This box becomes very full, making it is harder for the person repacking and forces them to take something they may not want or use. Exceptions can be made if someone really wants the item Must post photos of all swaps and wait for approval from the thread before sending the box to the next recipient. The box coordinator and 50% of participants should give the OK for your trade. Give the group 24 hours to review your trades and provide feedback.  Please contribute mid to high-end beauty products only. No drugstore items or Sephora brand. If you have questions or you are unsure of an item, ask! ***If an item in the box has been damaged in transit, please contact me as to what to do with it.

Do not swatch items in the TSB. I saw many items that were swatched in the last box that didn't start out "swatched" or "used". 2. If an item is swatched, put "swatched" with the stickies notes I included in the box. If the items has been used (UP TO 3 TIMES ONLY), then put used and then the number of times. 3. If the box gets lost while you are sending it to the next person (for whatever reason), you will either pay a $50 deposit (to the organizer of the box)  to replace the items or you will have to put enough samples/deluxe items to make up for the box. If you are not ok with this rule, then please refrain from joining the box. 5. DO NOT INCLUDE ANY LOW END MAKE UP/ SKIN CARE (No Sephora or Ulta brand deluxe or sample!) This is a high/mid end box unless it is an Asian or Indie brand that someone wants. 4. Ship the box within 3 days to the next person. If you can't, post a message here on the board right away. 5. Post pics of your trade and wait until at least half of the group has agreed on your trade. 6. The box is based on trust so don't steal from it. It is meant to be a fun experience for everyone. 7. Have fun!   1. Alexmarya 2. Kariyava 3. Kelloua 4. Jazachai 5. Alexasteph 6. Pinyo 7. YoiFran 8. Petisweetmom 9. Imlostagain 10. CC3616 11.

We’re thrilled to share with you the #1 anti-ageing serum at Sephora: our Good Genes All-In-One Lactic Acid Treatment. This product is formulated with high-powered, purified-grade lactic acid that exfoliates away dull, pore-clogging dead skin cells to visibly reveal smooth, fresh, younger looking skin.   In addition to lactic acid, skin-brightening licorice helps visibly reduce the look of dark spots, age spots, and discoloration caused by sun exposure, for naturally brighter, more even-toned skin. Good Genes is also clinically tested and proven to significantly improve the appearance of lines and wrinkles in just three minutes!   We’ll be checking this thread frequently throughout the month to chat about the challenge itself and answer your questions about Good Genes. We can’t wait to hear about your results!

So I was just on Sephora's website and noticed that all Formula X products are half off, and the selection of nail polish colors has diminished significantly.     Is Formula X being discontinued?! If so, it'll be a bummer since I love The System and Formula X is the only nail polish I use.

Ask The Experts
Hey y'all,    I've had acne since I was a teen and am still struggling with it as a 26-year old. I used to be on topical medications but switched to a pill called spironolactone a little less than a year ago. It's been a life saver and I've been able to stop using my prescription topical creams.   However, because spiro cleared up my skin tremendously and because I am also a Sephora employee, I've been experimenting with new skincare. I recently broke out horribly after using a combination of the Ole Henriksen Invigorating Night Gel and Josie Maran's spf 47 moisturizer (I used Ole's night treatment for almost three weeks without breakouts until I incorporated Josie's sunscreen, which broke me out immediately). I've since stopped using both because my skin was aggravated and dry, on top of breaking out.   Since I've stopped using these two products, I incorporated Sunday Riley's UFO oil into my night routine. I love that this doesn't dry my skin out and has a BHA. I've been using this for roughly 5 nights and while my acne is beginning to get less and less, I still have a few new pimples that pop up every other day or so.   Here is my current routine: AM - Exuviance Antibacterial Moisturizing Face Cleanser -First Aid Beauty Vitamin Mist as a toner -Josie Maran Argan Whipped Face Butter  *days without makeup I use Supergoop's Mineral Sunscreen in place of the argan face butter, otherwise I use a BB cream w/spf as my "foundation"    PM - Exuviance Antibacterial Moisturizing Face Cleanser (sometimes I use First Aid Beauty's Skin Rescue Deep Cleanser if breakouts are horrible) - Sunday Riley U.F.O. oil - Josie Maran Argan Whipped Face Butter   My skin is combination oily with most oil in the t-zone and cheeks and dryness where my acne occurs which is along my jawline, lower cheeks, and neck. I am also sensitive.   I am hoping for a recommendation on a potentially new or improved skincare routine based on these concerns. My biggest concerns are acne and small white bumps of texture. Otherwise, my skin is fortunately pit-free as I never picked my acne too much!   I do also prefer a cruelty-free skincare routine <3

Lately I have been going over my purchases and I noticed a tiny trend - I am obsessed with some things more than others.   So what are your 5 things/products that you are obsessed with lately (it could be anything - from food to clothing to makeup, etc)?   Mine are: - Skin care (Algenist, face masks, and serums) - Purses (bought 4 purses in one year, and continuing to look .. smh) - Starbucks (holiday drinks) - NARS creamy concealer - Bite Beauty

hi!!! im out of the country and my birthday is tomorrow can my boyfriend pick my free birthday gift? and what would he need? please help..
All Other Concerns
Does anyone know if Sunday Riley has discontinued its Bionic cream? It's no longer showing on Sephora website or at most other websites. This is the first anti-aging type cream with bells and whistles that I've been able to use without any reactions.   Can a mod pipe in and confirm?
