Beauty Pet Peeves
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!!!

Deals Too Good to Pass Up (Take 3)
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

Classroom "Appropriate" Shades
I've just started a job as a substitute teacher, and I was wondering if anyone had suggestions for what shades of lipstick they think would be nice for a classroom setting? My go to has always been a bold red, but when I think of teachers, I don't typically think of anything too daring. I'm thinking maybe a nice nude or another light and subtle color. I tend to stay away from pinks because I'm very fair, and I've yet to find a pink that doesn't make me look too much like a doll.

Choosing a Naked Skin Concealer for Sephora Foundation Shade
Hi! I am having a hard time choosing the right Urban Decay Naked Concealer shade. The foundation I wear is the Sephora 10HR Wear Perfection Foundation in the shade 22 Light Natural and it is the absolute perfect shade for me. I don't have severe under eye circles or darkness, only moderate. I would like the concealer to highlight my eyes which is why I'm not sure which shade to choose.  I got a sample of the Light Warm shade and it blends perfectly but I don't feel that it provides enough of a highlight and contrast.   Thank you!

Thank you. I just found out my shade is 3.5 in the Naked Skin Foundation so would that look good with the Fair Neutral Naked Skin Concealer.  see post
Fragrance Junkie Central
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!

RANDOM THOUGHTS : BEAUTY
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...)

Oily skin + foundation (Setting powder?)
I recently went in to pick up a new foundation to use in winter (I have a summer look I love with Dior Forever Flawless), but unfortunately I'm paler in winter and it doesn't have a match for my paler complexion. I picked up one that matched with my skintone in-store and that came recommended to me by Sephora staff (makeup forever ultra HD invisible cover stick foundation). I like everything about it except how shiny/oily it makes me look/feel after a few hours.   To that end, I was wondering if anyone had any suggestions for a foundation that worked well with combination skin (I have dry cheeks in winter, but a fairly typically oily T-zone). (My color IQ is 1R04.)   Alternatively, I'm open to the idea of keeping the make up forever foundation if I can find something to mattify it: is there a pressed/setting powder that someone might recommend? (Flash photography is a concern of mine - I do need something that won't show up oddly with a flash.)   Thank you so much for your help!

Foundation help needed!
Hey all. So I have a issue I need help with. I recently bought the Clinique Beyond Perfecting Foundation and Concealer. I love the coverage and lightweight feel of it, but here are my issues with it, when I got hot, and started to sweat a bit and get oily a bit, it all slid right off my face (I used primer and setting spray), and the color range sucks, they run way to dark. So my question is, does anyone know of any foundations that are amazing coverage, sweat proof, transfer proof (if possible), humidity proof, and water proof? Does not have to be from sephora, it can be any brand y'all think would work. I have neutral undertones (not overly pink, or yellow) and have combination/oily skin. Thank you.

Single Makeup Bag Challenge
Do you ever think about what products are truly important to you, and what you could live without? We're all dirty dragons who hoard sparkly and beloved treasures. If you had to get rid of all of your makeup, except for what you can fit into a single makeup bag (or train-case if you're not feeling daring), what would you keep? Why?   I would love to see photos of how much you guys can jam-pack into a makeup bag. Did you end up packing lighter than you thought or was it hard to choose? I'm not including skin care, because I'm not a monster.    Second Part: Can we stand by our decisions and live with our makeup bag for at least a week? Who can go the longest???    I'm going to sleep on it and start tomorrow
