Deals Too Good to Pass Up (Volume Five)
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:   http://community.sephora.com/t5/Hauls/Sephora-Sale s-Section-Get-it-Now/m-p/2122832#M44949

Coming Soon - Highlighters
Soo...You may have noticed on our homepage that there's a super special "App-Only Exclusive Early Access" highlighter event happening soon (That's 2/26, to be exact). Well I got my hot little hands on a couple of the products that will be in the event in a meeting today and I *may* have snuck some pics (okay fine I didn't sneak them, I totally took pics and then asked if I could share them with you guys because I love you but I also love my job).   Anyhoo, the Anastasia Nicole Guerriero Glow palette on the left won't be news to any of you, but OMG LOOK AT THE NEW COVER FX CED SHADE (CED=Custom Enhancer Drops). It's called Halo and you guessed it, it's a Holo. I'm. Obsessed. I've swatched it on everyone within a 5 foot radius and it's legit, you guys.    Both of these pretties will for sale in the app-exclusive early access event on 2/26, so get ready. Meanwhile I may have pocketed the Cover FX drops* so I'll be coming to work tomorrow SHININ'.     *okay fine, I didn't pocket the drops, they gave them to me because I swooned. Again, I like my job and I've never stolen so much as stamp in my life. xo

Subscription box photo sharing
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)

anyWould anyone be interested in joining a new/lightly used item TSB? Requirement of 500 hearts.
Spoiler (Highlight to read) 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. 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. Allowed in the box:  Mid to high end products (think brands sold at Sephora, The Bay, Nordstrom, etc). 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. Keep non-beauty related items to a minimum (please do not overload the box with makeup bags, cases, etc). Packaging & Shipping All participants must provide a tracking number for their shipment, posted to the thread upon receipt. 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 Shipping should be within 3 days of receiving the box!! Calculating Values: New items: full price Clearance items: full original price unless they are long-term residents of the clearance section (i.e. OCC lip tars in original packaging) Used 1x or swatched: 90% value (original price x 0.90) Lightly used: 80% value (original price x 0.80)  This applies when an item was used more than once but at least 90% of the product is remaining. In other words, the item hasn't been used more than 3 times. 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.  These must be new, untested, unswatched. Courtesies: Don't put in anything unsanitary! (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. Same thing goes for rollerballs. 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 reserving 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 even they are swatched or used!! Swatched/used items must be labeled as such. All opened items must be cleaned/sanitized prior to their addition to the box Sanitizing 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, making 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 or Sephora brand. If you have questions or you are unsure of an item, ask! ***If an item in the box has been damaged in transit, please contact me as to what to do with it. And , as always, remember not to trade used items for new ones.   Thanks!   (adapted from "TSB Best Practices For the BT Community".  http://community.sephora.com/t5/Makeup/TSB-Best-Pr actices-for-the-BT-Community/m-p/2001133#M59515) Guidelines:Trade items that are equal in value and brand quality or better.

Do not swatch items in the TSB. I saw many items that were swatched in the last box that didn't start out "swatched" or "used". 2. If an item is swatched, put "swatched" with the stickies notes I included in the box. If the items has been used (UP TO 3 TIMES ONLY), then put used and then the number of times. 3. If the box gets lost while you are sending it to the next person (for whatever reason), you will either pay a $50 deposit (to the organizer of the box)  to replace the items or you will have to put enough samples/deluxe items to make up for the box. If you are not ok with this rule, then please refrain from joining the box. 5. DO NOT INCLUDE ANY LOW END MAKE UP/ SKIN CARE (No Sephora or Ulta brand deluxe or sample!) This is a high/mid end box unless it is an Asian or Indie brand that someone wants. 4. Ship the box within 3 days to the next person. If you can't, post a message here on the board right away. 5. Post pics of your trade and wait until at least half of the group has agreed on your trade. 6. The box is based on trust so don't steal from it. It is meant to be a fun experience for everyone. 7. Have fun!   1. Alexmarya 2. Kariyava 3. Kelloua 4. Jazachai 5. Alexasteph 6. Pinyo 7. YoiFran 8. Petisweetmom 9. Imlostagain 10. CC3616 11.

The Question Thread: Because not all questions need their own thread.
I'm making this thread because I simply don't want to create a new thread for every little question that pops into my head, nor do I think that most questions need a separate topic.    I had previously just dropped whatever random question that came to mind into the Random Thread (thanks jemly!), but I had been thinking about starting this for a while and figured I'd give it a shot to see if it could be of any use.    I'm well aware that the people who could best utilize this thread will likely remain completely oblivious to it, but if it can consolidate even a small fraction of questions -- and maybe even generate some interesting conversations both beauty and non-beauty related -- that seems worthwhile.    Official thread mascots: The Curious Puppies.   Official thread anti-mascot: Lucille Bluth.   It probably would've been wise of me to have a relatively inane question to use as an example and kick this thread off...    Well, since I apparently don't have any pressing questions, I'll start with this two-parter:   What's your favorite drug store nail polish shade AND which official mascot puppy is your favorite? Bonus/Extra Credit: What's it's name?

Need help with colors!
I have strawberry blonde hair, hazel (mostly green) eyes, and fair skin (Kat Von D lock it foundation in 44 during the winter.. not sure what my summer color is) and I need help finding a a bronzer that isn't too dark or shimmery, blush that isn't too orangy peach or too pink, and a self tanner for my face and neck that isn't too dark or too orange.  Also, I haven't worn eye shadow in forever because the purple and green colors people usually recommend are always too dark for my comfort. Any suggestions? Preferably specific colors because it's difficult for me to get to a Sephora location so I shop online. Thank you!!!

I love using the backlight targeted colour corrector on my dark under eye circles.   I have though about trying foundation anyone have any suggestions?what are your favorites?

What type of brush do you use for cream contour?
HALL OF FAMER lylysa / HALL OF FAMER HALL OF FAMER / replied
Hi, Javiera123!   For cream contour formulas, try using a synthetic bristled brush so that the fibers don't absorb all the moisture in the cream, allowing you to blend... see post
The UnNude Lip Challenge
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- Tuesday, February 28th. 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)   EDIT: I have changed the timing. This challenge will run through the end of February so keep the UnNude looks coming!

What is your favorite matte blush?
Hi ladies! Let's hear it!   PS. I might or might not be looking for a very light colored natural looking blush for light skin with yellow undertones. Something that I can never overdo

NUDE Skincare Thread
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 Sephora.com, across Europe in Space.NK stores and online, in Australia in Mecca stores and Mecca.com."   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.

What are you watching? (Don't be a spoil sport - spoiler your spoilers)
We're blabbing about everything else these days, I figured I'd check in and see what people are watching when it comes to TV shows and movies!   It would be foolish to think that this thread could remain spoiler free, so let's be courteous to one another and be sure to spoiler your spoilers. If you don't know how, it's that super adorable little yellow button on the toolbar, located to the right of the bold/italic/underline/strikeout buttons.    DONT FORGET: If you happen to be the most recent post, your first sentence or two of your post will show up EVEN IF ITS IN A SPOILER. So please take care if you're going to go dropping spoiler bombs.    Anywho... I just saw the movie PHOENIX last night and it was absolutely spectacular. Like Academy Award spectacular. If you're fortunate enough have showings in your area, I cannot urge you enough to go see it.    So whatcha'll watchin' these days? What are you anxiously waiting for to start back up?

Beauty Products That Share Your Name
Just like finding your name on a gift shop key-chain, I've always liked being able to do the same with beauty products. I thought it'd be fun to have a thread where you could post products (even non-beauty ones!) that share your name.   Here are the (few) products that I've found with my name: Zoya Lauren* (pink nude beige with shimmer) Buxom Full-On Lip Polish in Lauren (punk rock pink) Jane Iredale PureMoist Lipstick in Lauren (creamy matte copper) Julep Lauren (hot tropical pink creme; discontinued) Napoleon Perdis Mattetastic Lipstick in Lauren* (pink tan; looks like it is now extremely hard to find in the US) *products I own    Also, shout out to @veronika23  for suggesting to start a new thread on the main feed.    I can't wait to see what products everyone will dig up!

What's your go-to shadow for on-the-go?
Our fave is the Color & Smudge Shadow Crayon! It's super creamy,  long-wearing, and the best part... it has a built-in blender! You can apply hands free and mess free (pretty much anywhere you are). We also love the magnetic sealing cap which prevents any makeup transferring on your bag! Say goodbye to marked bags!   http://www.sephora.com/color-smudge-shadow-crayon- P416378?keyword=TR%C3%A8STIQUE%20Color%20%26%20Smu ...   xx trèTeam

Silicone-Free and Talc-Free Foundation Recommendations?
Hi all, recently I've discovered that silicone and talc both wreak havoc on my face and I end up with terrible breakouts. I've been using a great silicone free primer from clarins but now I'm on the hunt for a foundation to fit my needs. Does anyone have a recommendation for something that is both silicone and talc free? I've tried the Laura Mercier Moisture Supreme but it made me really oily by the end of the day. I also tried Bare Minerals but they don't have a good color match for my skin tone. My skin is sensitive, acne prone, and combination leaning more towards the oily side. Thanks!

So hard to find a foundation without silicone. Sappho Organics is cone-free but it's a hard cosmetic line to find. see post
