Spectacular September Hauls
This hasn't been started yet so I'll give it a go.  Today is the last day that SiJCP has an extra 25% off clearance so I stopped in to poke around before I start up the smoker for tonight.  I grabbed all these goodies for $30.

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

Any suggestions for future Sephora Favorites sets?
The Sephora Favorites line is one of the things I love about Sephora. I've discovered great products that I never thought I would love because of it. I'm glad to see the selection is growing, with more skincare sets added. Regardless, I would love it more if Sephora would make an all-lipstick kit, all-blush kit, or a bronzer-highlighter kit. Maybe a nail product assortment. Whatever it is, I'd be happy to try as long as there is absolutely no Nars Orgasm or Laguna     Any suggestions?

LUV TB: Lost Unicorn for VIBRouge Traveling Box
--closed-- Box of awesome high end items and unicorns, show me yours and I'll show you mine, lol. While I’m not “ancient”, I’ve been on BeautyTalk WAY longer than I ever expected and have made some very good friends….as well as been enabled into getting WAY more makeup, lol. It is getting a bit overwhelming and as much as I like pretty things, my style is more minimalist, so I don’t reaaally need 6 or 7 jars of Guerlain meteorites etc. To help revamp/reorganize my stash as well as having some fun with the awesome friends I’ve made, I’m doing the LUV TB.    It contains lots of makeup that I love but never use, altho I couldn’t bear to part with any perfumes or majority of the skincare, so you ladies will have to make up for it along the way. Keep it classy, with high end and preferably new or lightly used things. No drugstores. Since it’s got tons of expensive items, I asked people I trust who are interested, so the box is closed. If it goes well, I may do another one next year when I've accumulated enough treasures. =P   Expand below to see the rules, taken from the awesome roxystar4 and slightly simplified:   Spoiler (Highlight to read) * Please make sure every item is in a plastic ziplock bag to prevent spills.

October Makeup Challenges
I'm not sure how many of you remember the makeup challenge posts, but I want to start some new ones for October! With Halloween just around the corner (yes, a month is just around to corner to me) I thought this would be a good way to practice any potential makeup/costume ideas. I'd like to post a new theme every week, but there are no deadlines so feel free to join in whenever and show off your costume makeup skills   Feel free to suggest ideas in this thread, but I'm thinking with the RHPS MAC collection release that might be a good first challenge, and I'd like to have another week with a "random" theme (as in whatever you want!).   I'll make the first post tomorrow if you're all interested

Can you commit?
I thought this would be an interesting challenge as well as difficult, but also help you discover creative ways and/or using up something you feel guilty of buying but never using.  I'm a bit of an impulse buyer when it comes to eyeshadows. I have several palettes but I usuall end up just using the same one or switch it up with another commonly used in my collection and I thought that should stop. Recently I've been good about rotating palettes but it still doesn't get much use that makes me happy I bought it.  At first I thought "a month should do it" but I know not even I would be able to keep that promise.    The challenge is this. To pick a product that you haven't really got much use out of, and use it for an entire week. So an example would be "I haven't used much of the Kat von D sinner palette so I'll use it for a week now."  Here's a loophole to this. You pick  your item but you can still use other shadows from other things, the point is that the item you've picked has to be in your daily look.    It doesn't have to be palettes or singles only as long as you pick the item and stick to it for a whole week. That way we won't feel so guilty about not using it so much.    The item that I will be picking will be the Kat von D Monarch palette. I use it every once in a while but I haven't for 7 consecutive days.    So starting this Sunday, that palette will be part of my every day routine until Saturday.    Summary: It doesn't have to be a palette, it can be a single eyeshadow. It doesn't have to be eye shadow, it can be a lippie, blush, or mascara. *edited to add foundation to the list*  Yes, you can mix it with other products but this will be the item you won't leave behind in your daily routine for the 7 consecutive days.    You don't have to post a picture of yourself if you don't want to, but if you want to take a picture of your item of choice, you can, and if you want. All you have to say to yourself is I can commit, I can accept, and I succeeded!

Anyone try the new Dior 5 Couleurs Palettes?
So I'm still on the hunt for what eyeshadow I want to get next, considering I still have credit from a recent return I can burn through. I'm considering a second Marc Jacobs palette (either the Dreamer or the Night Owl). I think pretty much everyone knows I've been on the fence about Vice 3 for weeks. I'm waiting on reviews of the Lorac Mega Pro when it's released this Wednesday. I'm waffling on a Charlotte Tilbury quad or a Chanel Les 4 Ombres. In my dream world I'd just splurge on a couple of Tom Ford quads but I think it's a bit too much to spend on myself until the holidays... and I'm also interested in hearing a little bit about the new Dior 5 Couleurs palettes that were released this fall! I know, I know, so much on my list, but really I'm only intending to buy one for now. Decisions are hard!   Anyway, I swatched Trafalgar in store last week and I really thought the textures were quite nice and the colors look beautiful. I'm also interested in palette 456 Jardin (it looks gorgeous), but I haven't seen it in stores yet. Does anyone around here on BT have either of these palettes? If so, how do you like them? How is the wear and texture? I don't own any Dior eyeshadows, let alone any of the new palettes, so I'd love all the information I can get.
