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.   _____________   SWATCH REQUEST THREAD HERE:   http://community.sephora.com/t5/The-Swatch-Board/T HE-SWATCH-REQUEST-THREAD/td-p/2223212   (have fun wasting even more time in the...)

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 link to acknowledge it. A heart with no comment means I already have the deal or am deciding not to list it. Thanks for sharing. Repeats are always welcome, so if you're unsure if something was previously posted, post it. People who may have missed it the first time could see the second posting. Don't forget to list the retailer, so everyone knows where to get your deal. If you're posting about something on sale at Sephora, share it here. http://community.sephora.com/t5/Hauls/Sephora-Sale s-Section-Get-it-Now/m-p/2122832#M44949

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!!!

Hey Beauties- We have ALOT of threads around here for Tom Ford products. I figured I'd start one thread where we can update each other on items as they come out or we see them available.    For all my UK'ers, or people willing to pay for shipping from the UK, Harrods has Softcore and Nude Dip from the Fall collection available right now. Happy Shopping!

Skincare Stories
Often people ask for recommendations on a skincare routine or for specific products/combinations.  This might be a place to share your everyday skincare, both AM and PM.  A skincare "what are you wearing" as it were.  Hope this is useful.   *Age - 40 Skin type - oily/combination Current skin condition - quite dehydrated (winter/indoor heating)*   01/17/16 - AM skincare in the order I used 1. Nude Jelly cleanser (love) 2. Pixi Glow tonic (5% glycolic toner - love) 3. Omorovicza Queen of Hungary Spritz (sample) 4. Radical Skincare Youth Infusion serum - hydrating and anti-ageing (new to me.  Testing) 5. Bobbi Brown Hydrating Eye Cream (like) 6. Elemis Pro-Collagen Marine cream (really like as an AM moisturizer)   I will try to post PM skincare tonight so the post can be comprehensive.   General comments - Okay skin.  Apparently the age between 38-42 is a transformational time in hormones (dehydrated skin/spots), so I am more aware of how my skin performs/reacts .  My skincare definitely has more "actives" now than before.

Products
We've all felt the pain of those items that we would have gotten, should have gotten but now must pay way to much to buy from re-sellers.  Maybe collective BT minds can identify (while still in stock) the limited edition must haves. My recents...the Dior Nude illuminating powder (spring 2016) is a pass.  The Chanel Ribbon blush spring 2016) is a maybe.  The YSL Gypsy Opale and Indie Jaspie (face powder and eye shadow) sold out within hours of the YSL site pre-release (it just went live on NM). Anyone have any thoughts on currently available or soon to be limited editions?

Ask The Experts
Just noticed that all of the spring stuff is showing up (early as always) but the thread is still specific to Winter (which it is...but tell the brands).  So what have you found, dear BTers, that is new on Sephora...

Fragrance
I know there are a few of us on BT that are fragrance addicts, so I thought it would be nice to have a dedicated place where we can share our thoughts.   This is not to take away from the lovely What Are You Wearing Today, Fragrance Edition thread, but more a place to post longer reviews, chat about new brands or releases, and just shoot the breeze on anything good and smelly   For me, I recently acquired 2 new decants that I've been anxiously awaiting.  Ever since Lachaton mentioned that MMM was releasing a new scent called  By The Fireplace  I've been itching to get my hands on it.  My decant arrived yesterday, so I'm looking forward to marinating in it this weekend.  Secondly, I recently picked up a tiny sample of Shiseido Nombre Noir.  Apparently it is one of the most expensive failures in perfume history - made by Serge Lutens for Shiseido back in the 80s.  Of course, with a backstory like that, I was dying to get a sniff   What's new on your scent radar?  Do tell!

Ladies (and gentlemen!)   Since Canada seems to be getting different/fewer brands added to the website, and any cross-border new releases seem to be several days to weeks later than US releases, I thought we could use our own 'what's new/found in the wild' post.   Please feel free to share any new products/brands you find on the Canadian site here.

Beauty Confessions
Spoiler (Highlight to read) I have way too much stuff, so I'm starting another TSB. I've participated in many and run two TSBs, all were great experiences and I got to know people better which was fun!     This also helps support my low buy, as I get all the fun of seeing the products find new homes and new stuff to try at the end when it gets back to me.  I know a homeless outreach/shelter that I usually donate at the end, I will think about what to do this time, I haven't decided yet!

Then back to Nicrohr!   I am leaving for a trip to Europe, so this TSB has to finish by the end of April latest, so the list won't be too long (maybe 10 spots at most, or less)!   LIST IS FULL!   Required spreadsheet for tracking items (update with your ins/outs):  https://docs.google.com/spreadsheets/d/1m_6lreTep1 zbDJ05TmTsSAMSREfs1qHHyo9Uzod2c44/edit?usp=sharing   Higher end products are the focus (Nordstrom, Barney's, NM, Sephora, etc.), other items are allowed too, esp if there is interest... see discussion below.   Spoiler (Highlight to read) Mix of brands welcome, but I hope the box will skew a little higher end than my previous boxes and will try to start it out that way.  Swatched or gently used will be included (and embraced by me, I love to give unloved products a new home and I mostly use powders, so it's not a big issue for me to sanitize).  Anything that someone soon after you wants is also OK (even if it doesn't follow the rules - if someone wants it and there is room it should be good, just ask in the thread!).  Because they can get messy/tricky and I don't use them, I'd like to technically allow but limit perfume, candles (I do love Diptyque candles!), and nail polish -- they are OK if someone after you WILL take them (post/ask in the thread), otherwise no.  No large body or hair care unless someone wants it shortly after you.   Mini sizes, deluxe will be allowed.  We will not track or focus on foils, if someone wants to give or take them they can (I don't want to take up a ton of room with them but I am OK with it!).

Thanks!   Here is the link to GPL's box from last year that was awesome, and if we run into questions or issues I will likely refer to this thread -- I will base this box largely off her process/rules.  (Notably, our box will not be new only though, swatched and gently loved welcome.)   http://community.sephora.com/t5/VIB/NEW-Items-TSB/ m-p/1881761/highlight/true#M47650   and if you are new to TSBs especially, here are some general good practices (thanks again to these ladies for posting them):   http://community.sephora.com/t5/Makeup/TSB-Best-Pr actices-for-the-BT-Community/m-p/2001133/highlight ...   (Some of these I am not as picky on, I don't care if an item was tried 1x or 4x for example, but if it's well loved that should be noted (i.e. a dip, etc.).

Hey gift bag haulers-I know you are out there! If you are like me and feel compelled to purchase every department store and boutique gift bag event, this is the place to share your info, pictures, decisions, reviews and more. I just went for the Bergdorf Goodman Be Beautiful bag and will post my picture down below in a little bit. There are more of these GWP bags coming up and I would love to discuss your favorites, what the gifts bags have or will contain. I even have the idea that we could possible negotiate swaps between the gift bags and potentially go in to share a bag (split the gift and $250 purchase) for example..Lots to discuss!   Dates-please post any info that you get and I will try to update   Neiman Marcus Beauty Event February 11th 2016- gift with purchase, gifts and buy in TBA   Space NK- TBA I believe it is coming up in February   Barney's Gift bag- February/March (there is already a thread for this specific event, so just mentioning it)   Let's gift it up!!!

Beauty Confessions
trying new products can be...overwhelming. do you love a product because it works ? can you tell right away if it's performing the way you want it to ? sometimes i'm so happy to finally try something and let my enthusiasm blind my  actual  impression of it (at least at first )   it takes time to come to proper conclusions ! particularly when it comes to skincare, but makeup too.   so here's a thread where we can discuss our experiences while trying a product  for a first time. it can also be a place that people can reference if they're considering a new product.   right now i'm trying a sample of the REN v-cense night cream. i've only used it for 2 nights so far, but i LOVE IT. i love it so much i'm tempted to go ahead and grab it up, but i need to make sure it doesn't break me out over time (it contains shea butter which *can* be a breakout trigger for me, but not necessarily). it smells of frankincense which i adore, but i know for some people would be a turn off.   i'm also checking out the VICHY aqualia thermal serum. i really love the CAUDALIE vinosource s.o.s. thirst quenching serum, and prefer the texture of it to the VICHY, but think the caudalie may break me out slightly (i also was probably overusing it...i was very enthusiastic). so i'm just trying to figure out which i prefer.   how about you ?   __________ post trial edit about the products above: i had to skip on the REN because the shea butter in it was too heavy for my skin. and i suppose buying something simply for the smell isn't the best use of my moola the VICHY aqualia thermal serum, however, is in my permanent arsenal. i've already repurchased once since starting this thread, and have turned a few people on to it too !

Lips
Has anyone tried these?  I just got an email from them announcing their Spring release, the Plum Blossom 23-Karat lipstick.  It's a gorgeous color (rose/nude) and I'm dying to get it.  But for $55?!!?   I figure someone on BT must have tried their lipstick.  I'd love to get some feedback, about their lipsticks in general and/or this color in particular.  I like their skincare, so have high hopes for this, but their lipstick is a mystery to me.  Any help?

Makeup
A lot of the other big beauty brands have their own threads now, so I thought, why not NARS?   Let's share news about new collections, feedback on products, etc here. Spring 2016: Spoiler (Highlight to read)   Summer 2016: Have you picked up anything from the collection so far?  Do tell! 
Makeup
My 13th birthday is coming up, and I wanna start wearing makeup. And no I don't mean red lipstick, full on eyeshadow (even though the shades are TO DIE FOR) eyeliner, and eyebrows. I want something natural (Primer, Foundation, Powder, Mascara primer, and Mascara). But my parents think I'm too young. I'm a mature almost 13 year old that does their homework, listens to their parents, and gets good grades. And my parents are aware of my makeup obsession.
Face
I have only used liquid foundation but I am reading reviews that say this works well with oily/combo skin. Does anyone have any experience with this foundation? I am considering giving it a try. I have an oily T-zone with some dry spots on my skin.    Thanks!

If you see something awesome in the Sephora sales section, let us know. Sometimes items sell out quickly, so they get buried in other threads. Even if I check multiple times a day (and I sometimes do), you may check at a different time and find stock on items I missed (and vice versa). It seems like stock is often updated around 9am Pacific, but that is not always a given.   If you find something on sale not listed in the sales section, please list that here as well. Share your Easter Eggs with us. Thanks!

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)
