The only thing I love more than shopping is getting a great deal.  I've created a website with the same name as this thread.  If you share here and want to keep the deal exclusive to BT readers, just write for BT only in the post.   I will heart every deal I see .  If your deal does not have a heart from me, I have not seen it yet.  A heart with no comment means I already had your deal on my site or decided not to list it.   Should I use your deal, I will thank you here.  Thanks again to everyone who shares!    If you find something full priced that is new and awesome, share it here.   http://community.sephora.com/t5/Sephora-com/Spring -Summer-2015-Found-in-the-Wild-quot-New-quot/m-p/1 ...

I started this in Greenie's thread, but, people suggested to make a new thread for this, so here we are...   So, Spring is finally here. Or... sort of.... ( But, that snow the other day has nothing to do with the bright yellow and pastel green I feel like wearing, right? )   Anyway, I was thinking we could do 30+ day challenge of Spring ( and Summer ) colors, just for fun, and the heck of it. Let's have some fun! If anyone feels like joining me, please do. If you don't want to do the challenge, please feel free to stop by just because, whenever and why ever you feel like to.   Let's paint the BT with Spring colors, ladies and gents!   Lippie junkies united!!!     P.S. It turned out I need to remove what's left of my "wisdom" asap... so.... I'll start the fun, and re-join you as soon as I can. But, you go ahead and have fun.

I have replied to so many threads about sensitive acne prone skin and the like. I just wish people would search these boards before starting a new thread for a concern that already exists multiple times. I love being a part of the community and helping where I can but search is your friend everyone! *steps off soapbox*

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!

Here is the retired thread in case you wanted to reference something. http://community.sephora.com/t5/Sephora-com/Found- in-the-Wild-quot-New-quot/td-p/1668202   I've edited out the brands since I'm doing my best to check everything.

As some of you know I was able to get the 10K Josie Maran perk. There was no information about where the trip was, when it needed to be redeemed, etc... when the perks went live. It wasn't until AFTER I placed my order that I noticed the trip is for PA. I LIVE in PA! So obviously this is not a perk that is worthwhile to me, let alone worth 10K points. I wanted to be able to just cancel it and get my points back so someone who would truly enjoy the trip would have a chance at it.   Sephora CS messaged me to essentially say: my reward was non-refundable non-returnable according to their terms of service. (Paraphrased since a mod deleted what was actually written) This is absolutely disgusting in my opinion. Sephora gives out points like candy... they've been doing it ALL day! And I can't even offer up my trip to anyone else! Someone who would actually enjoy it! For the record, my order has not shipped or anything like that.    So thanks, Sephora... for really outdoing yourself! Just when I thought your customer service couldn't get any worse. ***Edited to add my response*** **Oh and apparently my message from Sephora CS was edited out by a mod***     So what you're telling me is that because your IT people didn't have any sort of description up when the perks launched (at 4am EST by the way), that we as consumers are supposed to just take responsibility for whatever it will eventually say? I thought being clear and concise was the responsibility of the MERCHANT not the CONSUMER. I'm not sure how that is binding in any way, shape, or form. Traditionally these trips are for places like Paris and LA, there's no way anyone would assume that this year's perk would take place in Pennsylvania. That's ridiculous. Additionally, last year people were refunded for their "mega" points that were unsatisfactory (the purses and the custom Bite lipsticks) so I'm not sure why this doesn't count in the same way. It's beyond outrageous to do this when you could've made this customer happy by simply returning my points and another customer happy by offering this reward again when so many people missed out. All with a few mouse clicks and keystrokes. There were several people on Beauty Talk (you know, the place where your most loyal customers gather) who would've really enjoyed having this trip, so it's honestly awful the way you're handling this situation. Just remember, you're alienating customers who have accumulated 10K+ points. Those points don't come without purchases. It's Sephora who is losing money and garnering bad press because of "customer service" like this.   Melissa

Mascara Madness is back at Nordstrom this Saturday the 23rd. Buy 2 get 1 free mascaras! The only "high end" mascara I have used is They're Real by Benefit, and I love it, but I wanna use this sale as an opportunity to try maybe some MAC or Clinique...really anything! I naturally have long lashes, just looking for a mascara that will really darken them and add volume, with no clumping or flaking. What mascaras do you recommend buying from Mascara Madness? What ones are you going to buy!?  Thanks beauties

Lately I have been going over my purchases and I noticed a tiny trend - I am obsessed with some things more than others.   So what are your 5 things/products that you are obsessed with lately (it could be anything - from food to clothing to makeup, etc)?   Mine are: - Skin care (Algenist, face masks, and serums) - Purses (bought 4 purses in one year, and continuing to look .. smh) - Starbucks (holiday drinks) - NARS creamy concealer - Bite Beauty

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 !

Hi everyone,    Since there are many LE items or discontinued items that we search for, I wanted to know if there is any interest in maintaining a thread to post any unicorns we stumble upon and list where it can be found so others can try to find these items that they are looking for. I thought this might be useful as I found a few items on my trip and also found it extremely helpful when a fellow BT member posted about the availability of Tom Ford's Nude Dip on Selfridges a couple of months ago so that a few of us could finally order this LE item.  I also thought that if there are LE items that people are looking for, they could PM me and I could add it to the main thread so that others would know what others may be looking for. I could update the Found Unicorns on the main post weekly. Looking for your thoughts, suggestions? This would be strictly for limited edition items and discontinued items. Please include location, date found, and price if it is selling for less or more than regular retail price.

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)

Hello All, Greenporchlights, KBMatthews, Zpsid91 and I are sponsoring this Best Practices thread to help TSB participants and coordinators have a smooth and fun experience. Below are the best practices we’ve come up with for the entire community. TSB Coordinators can choose to use all or some of this as they are starting their TSB’s.   What is a TSB: TSB stands for Traveling Sephora Box. It is a trade box amongst a group of community members who are trading items (New and/or used) with each other. The box is started by a TSB Coordinator and then moves on to specified people in the group by mail. At the end the box is returned to the box coordinator for them to decide how the items will be allocated. Options have been to donate to charities, or roll the box into additional rounds.   TSB Eligibility Requirements- Who can Join : Strongly Advised: Must be 18 or older to participate VIB or Rouge Status (recommendation) Must have 500 Hearts (recommendation: 750+ hearts) This is up to the discretion of the TSB Coordinator. While we recommend 500 hearts, you can go lower if you doing a Drugstore box. Active member of the community for at least 3 months (recommendation) Definition of active: Participates in threads regularly. (ie: at least one time a week) Ability to pay between $17- $28 for shipping fees (US and CDN) Must have access to a camera and device to upload pictures to post pictures of trades Reference from another successful TSB Coordinator and/or members Provide the TSB Coordinator reference, or the thread that shows your positive participation in a TSB within the last 6- 12 months (recommendation 6-12 months) Must provide your contact information (recommended e-mail, mailing address, phone number) to the TSB Coordinator Optional: Location Specific: Open to US Only Open to Canada Only Open to both US and Canada Box deposit – The Box coordinator can require a box deposit for participation in the box. This can alleviate the concern of boxes ending up missing The deposit can be only required for participants who have not met the outlined Eligibility requirements. The deposit can be anywhere from between $50-$200. The deposit should be help in the PayPal account of the Box Coordinator, or another trusted member of the box. It should be paid before the participants turn, and promptly returned as soon as the box is with the next participant. General TSB Guidelines Trade items that are equal in value and brand quality or better. For example, Dior for Guerlain would be a good trade, as would Too Faced for Tarte. Do not trade Dior for Tarte. Do not take more than you put in. Please ensure your trade is adding value to the box. Trade full sized items for full sized items. If a full size item you’d like to add is over 8oz or is bulky, share it with the group prior to your trades to gauge interest. If someone is interested in this item, it may be included. Consider keeping the box balanced. If there are a lot of skincare items, add items from a different category if you’re able to. Do not take all of one category from the box. For example, do not take all the palettes or masks. If you’re not sure if an item is appropriate, post the item and ask the group. Do not include duplicate items unless there is specific interest.   Trading Cost Guidelines Full sized: Items should be valued at their full retail value. Even if items were on sale at one point, or were purchased for more than retail, they should be valued at the regular full price. Exceptions may be made if an item is easily available to everyone and is on sale/clearance. This is at the discretion of the box coordinator.   New/lightly swatched = no price change Used 1-2x = take 10% off value Used 3-4x = take 20% off value Anything more than 4x = please use your best judgement and wait for input   Deluxe samples : Calculate based off largest size available of said product. For example, if a deluxe sample is 0.5oz, and the full size is 2 oz and worth $60, then the deluxe sample is worth $15. Must be either new and unused, or very lightly used. Take 10% off value if lightly used/swatched Do not include deluxe’s if you've lightly used them even once. Foils = no value or $1 each (box coordinator may decide)   Packaging: Package things carefully (bubble wrap or tissue paper if possible) and put things in labeled Ziploc bags. Try to leave the TSB in better condition than you found it Items that are more fragile (like perfume bottles) should be bubble wrapped individually Items will be organized in bags by type. Make sure products are wrapped well so they won’t leak or break and ruin other things in the box. Every item needs to be inside a plastic bag/Ziploc Label the Ziploc bags to outline the categoriy that goes into that specific bag Try not to pack more than a large flat rate USPS box can hold!  We want this to stay affordable for everyone. If you absolutely cannot fit into one box – give a head’s up to the next person!! Label the outside of the box with “Fragile” and “This Side Up” to further limit damage to the items inside the box   Courtesies: Don't put in anything unsanitary! (i.e. used lipgloss,  used liquid lipstick,  used cream products, used mascara) Post a picture and write info of what you took and left, with their condition and value – this way members can weigh in on the trades before shipping Include close up, open photos of any items that will be sealed that you cannot see the color through. This includes lipsticks, palettes, blushes, etc. No reserve items in the box for others, and don’t ask to have any items reserved for you - this is unfair to others participating Don't swatch items from the box - this is a hygienic precaution that we must take as a lot of people will be handling these items Swatched/used items must be labeled as such. All opened items must be cleaned/sanitized prior to their addition to the box Sanatizing consists of spraying the item with a makeup sanitizer, or making your own with half parts 70% alcohol and water. Try not to put in LARGE full sized items, like large bottles over 8 oz. This box becomes very full and it is harder for the person repacking and forces them to take something they may not want or use. Exceptions can be made if someone really wants the item Must post photos of all swaps and wait for approval from the thread before sending the box to the next recipient. The box coordinator and 50% of participants should give the OK for your trade. Give the group 24 hours to review your trades and provide feedback.  Please contribute mid to high-end beauty products only. No drugstore items. (Unless it’s a drugstore box) If you have questions or you are unsure of an item, ask!   Optional: Must adhere to online cataloging of values and trade-outs through a communal spreadsheet A required signature would be best. Please contact the person on the list after you about arranging for safe arrival, whether that means alternatively shipping to the person's workplace, or to a PO box, etc. Any larger items (full-size perfume, larger body care, larger skincare, large palettes) MUST be proposed first before adding to your trade. If the next 2-3 people aren't interested, please switch that item out.  Exceptions can be made if there is ample room in the box and there is interest later in the box.   Allowed in the box:   Depending on the box theme, you may include different items and brand levels. For a general TSB, rule of thumb is to only include mid to high end products (think brands sold at Sephora, The Bay, Nordstrom, etc). Fragrance can be included if it's in a spray bottle (can be 1/2 used if there is interest); rollerballs allowed only if lightly used/swatched/new Nail polish must only be lightly used, clean, and tightly closed Tools/Brushes/Cases/Bags as long as they are clean Anything that is sealed (as long as it fits with the other guidelines) Skin care items in tubes & bottles. Jars only allowed if it's sealed or unopened Items will be organized in bags by type. Make sure products are wrapped well so they won't leak or break & ruin everything else Keep non-beauty related items to a minimum (please do not overload the box with makeup bags, cases, etc).   Not allowed in the box: Pre-made samples Drugstore or lower end items (unless a Drugstore box) Heavily used items (except for perfume) Swatching items in the box Any product that you “dunk” a wand into or you dip your fingers into (like lip gloss or mousse blush) if they’re not new and unused. These cannot be sanitized. Large or bulky items unless there is interest No duplicates unless they are high end or highly sought after products     Mail Tracking All participants must provide a tracking number for their shipment, posted to the thread upon receipt. Insurance specifications will be determined by the box leader per each individual box. However, a general rule of thumb is to cover the charity buy-in, if there is one. For example, if a box’s buy-in is $20 and there are 10 participants, each person should purchase enough insurance to cover $200. At the start of the box, each participant should PM the person who will next receive the box to determine shipping details. These shipping details should be confirmed again by PM before sending out the box. When specifying shipping instructions, choose the option that optimizes both the security of the box and timely retrieval, whether that means having the box shipped to a workplace to ensure a signature, to a PO Box, etc. Each participant is responsible for notifying box the box leader, as well as the participants before and after them, should their availability or instructions change. For Canadian TSBs, a rule of thumb for the train is to plan out the route based on location. Shipping costs can be extremely high and take quite a while; minimizing the distance between each stop is ideal for everyone.   Item tracking     Upon receiving the box, all participants must post photos of every item in the box to account for its contents. The box leader must confirm all items are present, but it is encouraged that all participants take inventory for greater accuracy and accountability. Box leaders are encouraged to utilize a spreadsheet that all participants can view online for greater accountability. Box leaders can also make the spreadsheet communal, providing participants with the ability to claim and add their own items to the list once trades have been approved. Google Sheets is free and available to edit to anyone with a link to the sheet—all changes save automatically within a web browser; certain spreadsheet cells can be “data locked” by the box leader following each trade to safeguard values and list contents, thus preventing potentially dishonest participants from changing or deleting them. PM Greenporchlights for a tutorial on how to set up a spreadsheet, disburse it to participants, lock data, format, etc. In lieu of, or in addition to, an electronic spreadsheet, box leaders may elect to use a physical tracking sheet in the box that participants must complete after trades have been approved.   Participant “Tracking” We cannot publically keep a place in the community for people who have had questionable trade experiences; however, please PM one of the sponsors to get guidance on this if you have questions. Before accepting any participant into a box, ask for references from other BT members and check the trade threads. Post trade thread links to this thread for easy reference checking. Box coordinators can post links to their box here so future box participants can easily check one place for references.   Helpful Links:  Below are links to Successful Trades:  http://community.sephora.com/t5/Off-Topic/List-of- Successful-Traders-January-2015/td-p/1852954[commu ...   http://community.sephora.com/t5/Off-Topic/Successf ul-Trades-or-TSB-Experiences/td-p/1012387[communit ...   Thank you!  GreenPorchLights, kbmatthews, Mrsbaine, Zpsid91

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.

All Other Concerns
I've never had 'good skin'. I have a number of issues that prevent me from ever wanting to leave the house /without/ makeup. I'm looking for something that can help combat the issues I do have- And, It doesn't have to be just a single product. I wouldn't expect it to be. But, My concerns are as follows, Organized from the highest concern, to the least. The main problem I have is all of the 'scaring' on my cheeks. I don't know if I could actually call them scars, Because they don't have any depth. They are just marks left over from acne- But, the discoloration bothers me. I've attached a photo- But, The camera didn't quite pick up how bad it actually is. Anyways! My other main issue is dark circles. They aren't puffy, They *are* slightly sunken in, and the discoloration is more than obvious. Even underneath makeup. I have the beginning of fine lines and...Anything that could help both of those problems would be highly sought after.   Third, And final issue is that of pores. I have slightly enlarged pores, And.. A serum or some such that could help reduce them, I'd also be interested in.   For anyone who helps me on this issue- Thank you so very much. Its something I've dealt with for a while.

Seems like liquid matte lipsticks are huge right now and Anastasia is joining the club with a collection of 20 shades, launching Jan 7th on her website and on Macys.com $20 each.   Here are the swatches for your viewing pleasure   I think the colors are gorgeous and there are at least three shades I know I will be buying.     What do you think?       EDIT: I basically stalked Norvina (Anastasia's daughter) because she's been wearing those lippies and testing them for I while and I got you some pictures so you can see how gorgeous these actually look... which might be not a good thing for us.    Pure Hollywood   Potion   Baby pink Vamp  Sad girl   American doll   Lovely   Vintage   Spicy

Eyes
I'm in the market for a new brow product. I currently use Tarte's emphasEYES brow pencil (in Rich Brown) but I want I bit more precision in my application and I find that Tarte's product is a bit too soft and tends to get everywhere.   I'm looking for a natural and defined look. So nothing dramatic, but just something to make them darker, more defined and with clean lines. Lately whenever I use the Tarte spoolie to blend out the product, it gets everywhere and make my brows look blurry/fuzzy on the edges. Not a fan.   I'm assuming all of the Anastasia brow products are advertised as smudge proof, but are they all, really?   I got a sample of the powder duo and am trying it out today and I'm liking it. But I'm concerned about the powder falling out onto my cheeks throughout the day or as the product gets older. Have you experienced this? I'm also not sure how much use I'll get out of the lighter color. I think my sample is in Dark Brown and the light powder is a light brown...not sure if that would even show up on my brows!   I naturally have jet black hair that I lighten with semi-permanent dye into a dark, dark brown.   Which do you prefer, between the dipbrow, powder duo, brow wiz, and why?
Face
Yes, I know this question has been asked before, however, I haven't really seen anyone who can answer my specific questions about the two blushes. Looking at swatches and reviews online don't help, they're all so different and there are so many varying opinions!   I am looking to purchase either one of these blushes (not lip gloss), but am not sure which one. So! I'd like to know, primarily, which one is pinker. I know both lean pinky-peach but if one has a more pink tone I definitely would go to that one. Second, which one's formula is better (I don't mind glitter at all, I love it!) Third, which one would be better suited to very pale skin. THANKS!!
