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:
SO EXCITED!! 11/28/14, they are coming out with 50 LE miniature lipsticks, selling at $32 each. I need them all. A snippet from an article about them: " In the Lips & Boys lineup, there are 10 shade ranges, encompassing nude browns, violets and plums, metallics, reds and light pinks. The high-pigment shades are done in a base of soja seed extract, Brazilian murumuru butter and chamomile flower oil. Thirty-six offerings are new shades; 10 are from Velvet Suede, Ford’s current seasonal color story, and four are from previous seasons. Ford predicted bestsellers will include Tomas, a coral hue; Matthew, a coral pink; Flynn, a light pink; Giacomo, a deep rose, and Patrick, a muted coral pink. Each clutch-size lipstick will retail for $32. The lipsticks can also be packaged in sets of any three hues in the collection."

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 ?
Hi all, I am hoping some people here may be able to offer some advice or insight into a little problem I have. About 10 years ago I started having allergic reactions to any creams near my eyes. They were pretty bad events that left me with my eyelids swollen shut and peeling skin both on my eyelid and the skin under my eye. Eventually I figured out a routine that worked and the problem resolved itself with very gentle skincare and no creams near my eyes. Makeup itself has never seemed to trigger the problem. In the past couple of years it seemed as though I had 'grown out' of the problem and I have been able to use a wider variety of products with no problem but I have shied away from eye creams. I am now in my early 30s and am interested in introducing eye creams into my regimen. Last night I tried a sample of Benefit's It's Potent and within a couple minutes I could feel the burning. I washed it off but the damage was done and find myself with swollen eyes today. My questions are these: Is this a problem that other people experience? Are there other very gentle eye creams people can recommend (I have samples of Algenist and Clarins at home but am now a little wary)? Do I even need an eye cream? I realize this is a little long so thank you in advance for taking the time read this!
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?
Hello, I have dry-combination skin, and it is so dehydrated. I am really looking for something to replenish my skin. Many people are raving about the glamglow thirstymud treatment. For those who have used it. Did you like it or not

So before my post gets removed again I'll be super vague and secretive for competitive reasons but.....it appears rouge members may finally get what we begged for for xmas (sorry not the mystical free gift) but maybe a....... that's worth more than previous years On another note, who else is cooking for Thanksgiving and takes a break by going on BT? Lol, well besides me.
Yesterday I was browsing the skin care section of T.J. Maxx and was surprised to find these two great items, for a super great price! The eye mud was only 29.99 and the set with the 1.7 clearing mud and .5 super mud was only 39.99. I purchased two of each one for me, one for my sister.
Hey guys ! It's a new month so you know what that means!! New haul thread time whoop whoop!! With the sale coming up soon at Sephora I know you ladies will be hauling so show me what you're getting!! I'll add in my additions soon !
I use Makeup Forever Foundation 185 what is a good concealer to use? I feel like it doesn't evenly cover unless I should use a better primer or a bb cream Or is there a better foundation that would provide full coverage?
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.
I have always loved Bumble and Bumble BB holding spray. It has been discontinued, and I am hoarding one last little bit of it by using it only for very special occasions. I haven't been able to find another product that works in the same way. Can anyone suggest a replacement for the BB holding spray?
I wear eyeliner everyday under my eyes just to give some color however, I cannot get it to stay on. It doesn't matter if I use primer, two coats, waterproof, all day or use and expensive over a cheap one. It either seems to do one of two things smear around and down my eyes or it just goes away usually within 2-3 hours. Any suggestions? Types tried: pencil, liquid, twist Brands: Urban Decay, Bare minerals, Sephora, BeneFit etc.
I bought Kat Von D's Lock-It Tattoo Foundation around a month ago. In my experience, it dries quickly and leaves me with gross dry patches, plus the coverage fades fast as well. I hate it. I have given it many chances, including trying several different moisturizers and tools to fix my problem (this is why I've kept it as long as I have.) I do still have the original packing and the receipt. I have used it quiet often, but there's still a ton of product left. Also, what foundation would you suggest to me? I obviously need moisture in my foundation, and would like to have one that won't clog my pores or break me out. Thank you!
