Happy New Year All!   I debated starting this thread again but since I  - inexplicably - made Rouge again, I figured why not ¯\_(ツ)_/¯   Welcome to the Great Rouge Experiment - Part 2.  My rouge status is good until December 31, 2017.  Last year we documented every "Rouge-only" perk to determine whether being Rouge was "worth it"  And I figured we can do it again this year to see if the program is getting better (or worse).   Just like last year, every Rouge-only perk or event that I hear about will go on this thread and if you hear anything please please please add it to this year-long running list.  And then on December 31, 2017 we can really assess whether it is worth the extra $600+ to be Rouge and if the Rouge program in general is improving.   Mods, last year this thread was moved to the Rouge-only area which I don't think was helpful to non-Rouge BIs who are wondering about the program.  I'd really like to keep the thread here if you don't mind.  Thanks!   January - 0.5 - Canada's "luckyrouge" event for Chinese New Year   February - TBD Spoiler (Highlight to read)   March -   April -   May -   June -   July -   August -   September -   October -   November -   December -  March - April - May - June - July - August - September - October - November - December -  Yearly Total - 0.5

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, across Europe in Space.NK stores and online, in Australia in Mecca stores and"   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.

A place to say thanks to helpful BTer's, share your new BT status or heart achievement... A place to joke around, share memes, riddles or anything else you want to. Let's bring back some life in this place!!!!    
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- Sunday, February 19th. 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)    
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: s-Section-Get-it-Now/m-p/2122832#M44949

The other thread was getting too long and difficult to load!    So what are your beauty pet peeves? What grinds your gears? Share your stories!!!
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)
After a conversation with other BTers, I got the idea to start this thread. Basically, if you are not familiar with QVC and it's daily TSV, a TSV is (according to QVC):   "Every day, we pick one special item and offer it at an extra special value that day. It's an item we believe you'll love. And we love telling the story behind it. Today's Special Value ®. More than a daily deal. The best find of the day®."   Many time TSVs will have bundled in them incredible discounts on beauty/makeup products, especially products that haven't launched yet. They are always launched at midnight on the day of their launch and are only good for that day. Many times they will sell out before the day is up!   Here is an example of a TSV from January 14, 2017: It was $79.96 on the TSV day only; Sold separately $182 ( Please note: this is no longer available at that price! )   As a longtime QVC beauty customer, I (usually) get alerts a few days before about upcoming beauty TSVs. I would like to use this thread to  as an INFORMATION/ALERTS thread where I post upcoming beauty/makeup/skincare TSVs for the benefit of the community . I can always create a related QVC discussion thread for the community if demand suggests that we need it.

Posting all products that you see new on Sephora (though sometimes elsewhere as well).  I will heart all posts of something new.  Since the Spring collections are what is showing up, I started a new thread.  I might duplicate a few items from the past thread, sorry if I don't tag those who posted, but I don't want to cross tag just to note that you posted (and thanks for posting!!!).
This thread will be for Ulta GWPs only.  Share ulta promos here.     12/12/16: Please stay on topic regarding GWPs.  Please post the product ID instead of URL.  If we all stay on topic we can keep this page streamlined and usable.  Thanks for your help!    ************************************************** *******     Since a lot of information is being removed from this thread, try to help each other out and add product id numbers and sku numbers so people can search for items on ulta.     *****Just to clarify, there is an item number that Ulta lists on the website, right under the picture of the item.   The product id is the number given to the item in the URL.  So Ulta's site follows this formula of having the url and then the very last part of the url is "productId=xlsImpprod" followed by an 8 digit number.  If you use that "productId" number you can get to the page of any item on ulta.  It's not a search, but a direct link to the page.*****   Side note: BT's TOS states " No solicitation.  Please do not use these forums to submit or publish any marketing communication, or to advertise or solicit for any business or enterprise. Direct links to other commercial websites are inappropriate for our BeautyTalk conversations. Those postings will be removed, and can result in the suspension of your access to these services. "
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.

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.
Hey guys! I had a question regarding to skin care products. So, recently I’ve been experiencing some serious breakouts. My face has always been in good condition, and I have been using several products to do that (Kiel’s, Korean skincare, Fresh), in addition to that I always thought that good genes are another reason for my ‘problemless’ skin (my mom and sister have the best skin ever!!). However, the breakouts that I now have consist on small acne look-like pimples and are in only one section of the face (the right one and forehead), the left part is perfectly fine. I believe that my T-zone has recently become more oily than usual and that’s the reason behind this breakout. So I’m looking for a good moisturizer (oil-free), cleanser, and mask. I’d like to note that I’m allergic to tea tree oil so what do you guys suggest? Thank youuuu!! 
Beauty Confessions
Hey guys!    I don't post on here often, but wanted to share what happened to me today.    I went to Macy's to return the Too Faced white chocolate chip palette today (was not impressed!) with the receipt and return sticker accompanying me. An employee working the Impulse area informed me that Macy's will no longer be accepting returns on opened beauty products because it costed them too much. She still let me return the palette, though, just for this time.    Wondering; has anyone else encountered this new policy yet?!? I will definitely not be purchasing makeup or skincare from Macy's anymore, I have sensitive skin and am quite picky about my products, especially when they can be purchased elsewhere and returned if I'm dissatisfied. 
Skincare Stories
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!
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!
I am 33 and recently noticed my pores are starting to sag and enlarge. What would be the best product that would work to tighten pores/fine lines?

Should I have different products for night than what I use during the day?   my skin type: a little dull I like brightening products. Dark eye circles. I get hormonal acne around my period even at 30 A little oilier in the t zone with some clogged pores on my nose but also can get dried out easily by some products (makes me combination right?)   current am regimen   wash face/ cleansing water serum eye cream moisturize    *do I need to exfoliate or use toner? Anything I am missing?   *PM is pretty much the same except sometimes I use dr Brandt Glow overnight serum or ole henrickson invigorating night treatment instead of ole henrickson truth serum. Should I have different products for face wash eyes and moisturizer?
