Hi, All! I wanted to wish my fellow BTers a very happy turkey day!!! Also, I wanted to say that I'm thankful for my family, friends, and the best thing I found this year: Nars Smudgeproof Eyeshadow Base! No more oily lids for me. Woo hoo! What are you thankful for?
Naked on the Run launched at 1:00 am PST this morning, and I'm wondering who else snagged it! I did, mostly just because it looks portable and I have all of the other Naked's, so I needed to round out the collection. I also picked up a few of the liquid liners in the sale section, they're $10!
What makeup is everyone wearing today? Today I am wearing: 1. Benefit Hello Flawless Foundation in Champagne 2. Benefit Coralista blush 3. TheBalm Mary-Loumanizer 4. Dior Creme de Rose Lipbalm 5. Dior Addict Lipstick in 454 6. Benefit Creaseless Cream shadow in RSVP and under all this I am wearing Neutrogena Pure and Free Liquid Sunblock SPF 50 So c'mon now...confess!

HiHi. I am recently intrigued by the various "skins" on the clarisonic systems, especially the mia2. I noticed that some can only be purchased by a specific retailer and my favorite one has to be from QVC. If you ladies have a clarisonic whether a regular colored or one with a different skin please show me!! BTW here is mine love you~
I am really interested about the fact that the perricone blue plasma target dead skin cell. Dead skin on my face is my major concern. For those who used it ? Did you notice any good results? Is it worth the price. I have a dry-combination skin with post acne dark sports.
Okay, so I have medium full lips. Always always compared to Drew Barrymore so that's a good idea of what I'm dealing with. Not no Jolie though haha. Anyways I looooooove lip colors but I'm always drying out and I can literally rip strips of skin off my bottom lip. That's the issue. I use fresh sugar repair treatment..even the scrub doesn't do much. When I was a kid I always had red red red lips with rings of chapped mess. I have sensitive super white skin, so if I make a mistake you can see it all too well. Tips please and products please
Hey everyone! I wear Estee Lauder Double Wear foundation everyday. I'm only 16, so sometimes I feel like it's a bit too much for me. I'm looking to switch to a BB cream. Since ELDW has great coverage, it's important to me that my BB cream isn't too light in coverage as I've found some BB creams to be. I have a few birthmarks that I like to cover along with some redness around my nose area. Can anyone recommend a BB cream for me to try?
I'm looking for suggestions on a hypoallergenic chapstick/lip treatment. I have recently developed an allergy to something in some chapsticks. I have tried various different brands like EOS, burts bee's and various types of blistex all of which I seem to be reacting badly to. Any suggestions on something that may work?
I recently went to an esthetician for a facial and I told her what I was using at home. She told me I was using too many products and it was actually more harmful for my face. Background about me : I have really oily skin. I have been using Pro Activ for a long time and have within the last month switched over to using Kate Sommerville. I have cystic acne usually around my chin ( possibly hormonal acne) My skin care regimen: am: Kate Sommerville Daily Cleanser ( I use with my carisonic) -pro Activ toner or Kate Sommerville toner -Kate Sommerville Acne clearing lotion - I spot treat acne spots with Murad Acne spot Fast Fix or Lush Grease Lightning - I moisturize with my Kate Sommerville moisturizer or Clinique dramatically different moisturizing gel night: Kate Sommerville Daily Cleanser ( use clarisonic) -pro activ or Kate Sommerville toner -I spot treat with proactiv refining mask or Eradikate -everywhere else I use Dr. Dennis Gross Moisturizer usually every other day I use a different clay mask( glam glow or an over the counter mask) then use an enzyme mask right after every Friday I use my Kate Sommerville resurfacing pads every Mon I use Exfolikate I know it may seem too much but I don't know what to cut out. I feel like every product has a purpose. My face responds better to Benzoyl peroxide. I have tried many other products in the past that have not worked and were suggested by my dermatologist ex. Cetaphil, Murad etc. Ive only within the last month have incorporated the use of masks and chemical peels into my facial routine.
For those of us that love lipsticks and have several of them, do you rotate or reach for the same few? I wear some more than others. And some have been neglected a lot (although they are very pretty). I thought of holding myself to wearing a new lipstick everyday for 30 days. Lets see how long this will last. If I last 30 days, maybe I will go longer. Ha...lets see if I last 2 weeks. Anybody else? I am quite excited about it.... Day 1, 11/10/14 - Maybelline Vivids in Vivid Rose.

Day 1 Photo Determination of when the online sales will go live: - This is still a great mystery. 12 am EST according to someone who made a mental note of it last year but so far, no official word for this year. Would love for a mod to help us out on this one. Determination of store hours for Black Friday: -From what I've gathered, and folks, please chime in - Black Friday hours are location specific and dependent on a number of factors. If your free-standing Sephora is inside a mall, they will likely match the opening hours for that mall. At my local mall, stores opened at midnight, and so then, did Sephora. At my SIJCP, hours were based on when Penny's opened. For Sephora's that are not in a mall, or Penny's, they will like go with whatever time that "plaza" is going to open. I called my two favorite Sephora's in Arizona. I don't live there, but when I'm there, they are the ones I go to. The one on 15169 N Scottsdale Rd is going to open at 8 am. The one in Fashion Square mall is going to open at 6 am. But here is the BEST news. For the free standing Sephora's, it looks like Black Friday hours are posted for most stores, on the locations page of sephora.com. For fun, I pulled up the stores with a 90210 zip code:
I just got my first ever BI reward in the shape of a lipstick sample for Urban Decay Revolution Lipstick. I love the color and it feels good so far. But I haven't read anything about it so I was just wondering what popular opinion is. Thanks!!
I was looking at Urban Outfitters and some bloggers...all these Korean brands. The first Tony Moly is on Sephora (and Shiseido but not Shu eumura). Anyone buy them? Like the cute packaging? Are the colors transferable to most people's everyday? Insight is so appreciated! And Shu Eumura has 25% off now. Buying anything?
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 ?

What is the meaning of beauty to Sephora? What are some company's that Sephora competes with? What impressions do the audience get from your advertisements? What is the most common device Sephora sends in each advertisements? Whats the original intention of your most recent advertisement?
Beauties, how Audacious have you gotten? I need to get some of these and am going to swatch tomorrow. If you have Audacious lippies, show us what colors you've picked up, and share what other colors you're still lusting after. Just from looking at swatch sheets last month, (on Temptalia I think) I saw about 15 I wanted How about you? Also, hat tip to jemly for inspiring this thread
Is anyone familiar with Revlon colorstay foundation? Ive heard good things about it, especially for us with oil/combo skin. I'm currently using MUFE Matte Velvet in color 15. I'm wondering what color to buy the Revlon in. I hate buying and returning colors for drugstore foundations, seems so wasteful. Thanks!!
I am 42 years old, and have had a very stressful year. It shows on my face. I have been lucky up until now to not to have much in the way of aging issues, but this year has hit me hard. I need something to plump up the skin under my eyes and fight those lines and wrinkles that are starting to pop up. I would love to hear about others' experiences. I have medium toned skin that is usually normal to oily, but in the winter it does tend to get dry. Thank you.
So I haven't been into painting my nails for awhile. One of my besties sent me some jamberries, and I went over to a friend's house so we could do our nails together. I decided only to put a couple of the jamberries on because it was a busy design and I thought it'd be too much to have that on all of my fingers. I was just going to leave it at that because I hate it when I paint my nails and it chips right off the bat so I wasn't going to waste my tme. My friend talked me into painting my nails using this awesome top coat that she has (that Sephora doesn't carry). And it lasted a lot longer than I expected!! So I bought some of the top coat and repainted them last week and it's lasted over a week even with the cheap polish I used. SO now I need more!! I've been perusing Sephora.com in search of the perfect red nail polish. Most of the reds are too bright. I'm looking for a darker red. Any suggestions? I'm eyeing a few different shades from Formula X but I love BT and wanted to see what you ladies recommend. Thanks so much!!
