Where do you store your makeup?
I have little plastic, circular makeup rack type thing I bought from Walmart awhile back that I've been using to keep all my makeup in, but I've officially run out of room. I know some of you have vanities, but for those of you that don't, where do you keep your makeup? How do you organize it? I've seen some nice, big organizers online, but they seem way too expensive to me. I like having all my makeup in one place, and I hate the clutter of makeup sprawled across a bathroom counter or thrown in a drawer. Do you guys have any suggestions for a good storage system for an expanding makeup collection?

The Deals To Good to Pass Up Deal Sharers Traveling Box
This box is open to deal lovers who regularly contribute to the Deals Too Good to Pass Up Thread . I know some people are faster at sharing deals, so even those who contribute to conversations (I love reading the conversations almost as much as the deals) without posting deals are eligible. It does not matter if you're relatively new to the boards or trades (I am not looking at hearts or posting history) as long as you're active in the thread.   There are a lot of boxes starting right now, so I may choose to wait a month or two before starting this. Once I determine a start date, I will post the starting items. None of the boxes I've seen look too similar to this one in that they're drug store exclusive (like the lovely dolceloure), genre specific, mostly high-end (like my friend Kateye7), deluxe exclusive, open to used items, etc. I'd like to consider this one a deal box. Regardless of how you came upon deal (subscription box, kit, GWP, purchased it, etc) or what size it is (foil, deluxe, full-size, etc), it is ok as long as it is new. If there is not enough interest now, I will try again in the fall. I do not want to start in the summer.     Guidelines   Spoiler (Highlight to read) If you have contributed often, I will know who you are. I read all the main posts and most of the sub-posts. If I do not know who you are or you have not contributed enough, I will not hold a spot for you. My intent is to have a box where deal lovers share items they do not want with people who may have helped them score a deal at one time or another. If you have not shared deals with others, there are a number of other boxes open right now.   Round one will be US only. If we have a round 2, I will ship the box to Canada as long as one of the Canadian members is willing to ship it back to US. The first 10 spots in each round will be set aside for each country. Between Rounds, I will remove items people in the next round are not interested in (by posting and giving them three days to ask for what we keep inside) to make space in the box. I will either hold the items here until the end of all rounds and take them for donation then or take them after each round depending on what everyone prefers.    New items only unless you have a used or swatched item someone behind you is interested in. Make sure you post the possible item to the open board and wait for someone in the box to express interest before including it. I am donating to Shade Tree (a shelter for abused women and children) in Las Vegas, and they only accept new items. Please do not open or swatch anything you are not planning on taking. If you swatch it and see it is not for you, trade for it anyway. Hopefully, you can trade it with someone willing to take used items.   To start off, I would like no more than 10 people . They are understocked on items for women with darker skin tones, so if you can guarantee new, darker toned items and are a thread contributor, I will make a spot for you (up to 20 people).    All new items are welcome from drugstore to high-end, because I've received all levels in kits, subscription boxes, GWP, and more. Trades should be fair. Try to swap in the same category: foil for foil, deluxe for deluxe, full-size for full-size, drugstore for drugstore, mid-range for mid-range and high-end for high-end. Exceptions can be made for unicorns or trading a full-size item from a lower category for a deluxe. Example: if you take a deluxe mid range cream worth about $7, you can place a new, full-sized drugstore foundation worth $7-$10. They are short specifically on foundation, so I would prefer to see that whenever possible.    While I do not personally like the idea of signing off on a trade, I think everyone should post their trades and give the other box participants 24 hours to bring any objections. If no one has any, your trade is approved and you are free to ship out. As such, members should check in once a day to have their voice heard. I think three business days with the box is fair, so I would appreciate anyone who needs longer send me and the person behind him/her a pm if s/he cannot send it by the end of the third day.   We will start with a medium USPS box, and I hope it never gets bigger than a large USPS box. You get $50 of free ins this way, so it is my preferred shipping method. If you choose not to ship through USPS, please check with the person you're shipping to first. If they are not home when the box arrives, they may want to coordinate another shipping address.   Everyone should provide their name address to the person in front of them and copy me on that pm, so I can have it as well.    I like the spreadsheet idea to track what is in the box, so I will probably ask everyone to add and remove their items to a Google Doc.   There is no specific buy-in per se, but I think all trades should be more valuable than what you're taking out. That way, the charity wins.   If you decide to sign up, please request your spot and items you may be interested in trading for. We may have your items and may not include them unless we specifically see someone requesting them. If you have contributed often, I will know who you are.

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!!!

A foundation that does not oxidize on combination skin?
I have combination sensitive skin and I've tried several foundations. I'm having a hard time finding one that won't oxidize on me. Right now I'm using NARS All Day Luminous. For the first couple of hours it looks fine, but then it becomes darker and more orange toned. Is there any foundation that won't oxidize on my skin?

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.

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.

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.

Daily Skincare - what are you using?
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.

Favorite Mask or treat yourself products
So its that time of year when a lot of us either get gift cards, or get ourselves a little something special just because we deserve it, and face masks are one of the things I always think of as the perfect little indulgence--not too expensive, but mostly not something I think of as an absolute necessity so not something I usually buy for myself and the perfect thing to treat yourself with.  Since its been a couple of years since we had a thread on favorite masks and with so many new ones that have come out, I thought this might be a fun discussion to have so......   1) what are your favorite masks and why? 2) do you have another favorite treat yourself product/purchase?

Soothing masks are my favorite. My skin is sensitive and nothing feels better than a soothing treatment to calm the fire. My favorites are First Aid Beauty Ultra Repair ... see post
Show me your nails!
I'm loving this nail polish from Nails Inc. I used the superfood base coat, Nailkale in Victoria and finished it off with the 45 second top coat.  The color is so rich and easy to apply.

You are going to looooooove it. I frequently use my regular nail polishes with a clear gel top coat to make my mani last much longer too (I have too many nail polishes t... see post
Are you "trialing" a new product ? Want to talk about it ?
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 !
