Daily Skincare - what are you using?
Often people ask for recommendations on a skincare routine or for specific products/combinations.  This might be a place to share your everyday skincare, both AM and PM.  A skincare "what are you wearing" as it were.  Hope this is useful.   *Age - 40 Skin type - oily/combination Current skin condition - quite dehydrated (winter/indoor heating)*   01/17/16 - AM skincare in the order I used 1. Nude Jelly cleanser (love) 2. Pixi Glow tonic (5% glycolic toner - love) 3. Omorovicza Queen of Hungary Spritz (sample) 4. Radical Skincare Youth Infusion serum - hydrating and anti-ageing (new to me.  Testing) 5. Bobbi Brown Hydrating Eye Cream (like) 6. 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.

Show me your nails!
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.

What's New On The Site Today, Canada?
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.

What kind of (non product) Reward would you like to see in the Bazaar?
With so many unused mega rewards sitting there in the bazaar (and that sports one that most people disliked), I wanted to make a suggestion regarding the Experience Rewards..Maybe we can hope to see an experience reward on the following: * A visit to the Too Faced headquarters in Irvine (it looks so pretty in the youtube videos) * Tickets to the Makeup show (they have one in Orlando, LA, Chicago etc).. *Meet and greet with KVD?     What kind of rewards would you like to see?

BEST FOUNDATION FOR FRECKLES
Hello everyone so today I am talking about the best foundations for girls or guys with a lot of freckles! I have a decent bit around my nose and cheeks and the rest of my face is clear of them so the problem I have run into my whole life is that a lot of foundations don't tend to cover up my freckles 100%. For the longest time I hates my freckles because no foundation could truly cover them- it would just make them look almost grey, and would most of the time just make it more apparent that I had a lot of makeup on my face! The reason for the grey look that can sometimes come when we wear foundation over our freckles is because it almost like being super tan and then putting on a foundation that is way to light for you- it will appear almost grayish and give a sort of white cast to the skin! Well that is what the foundation does for us girls with freckles! the foundation is the color of your skin and your freckles are a decent bit darker than that! I have found what I consider to be the best foundation that will NOT give you a full coverage but just make you have a even skin tone that your freckles can shine through and give your face a natural look! For the longest time I thought of my freckles as a curse, but have slowly realized they are a blessing. Your freckles can give the illusion that you have no makeup on/ very minimum makeup on (if done right)! If you don’t mind the look over very natural “I just woke up like this” kind of makeup them I recommend this foundation to you! It is the Makeup Forever Water Blend Foundation! It is a very natural and dewy foundation that gives you the slightest bit of coverage! The main point of this product isn't to give full coverage but just make your skin the same color & same tone! Okay now thats all I have to share because I want to hear form you guys down below!! Leave a comment or question below about makeup & freckles or even if you down have freckles let us know your favorite foundation or thoughts on the MUF foundation!!

SiJCP (Sephora Inside JCPenney) - share your pics, promos & pretties ❤️
    Welcome!    This thread is all about the SiJCP experience!  These stores are different than the stand-alone Sephora stores and like everything else, there are pros & cons.   Some of the pros: SiJCP has exclusive Sephora Favorites Sets ( which aren’t sold online ): Post a pic of any you may find out there in the wild GWP promos: sent out via email, snail mail or postcard offers in the store. There is usually no minimum purchase requirement but you will need the barcode.  Be a pal? Post any offers you come across here  Their own “Rewards”: the 100-pt’ers are usually different then stand-alone stores Some of the cons ( IMO ): Their own “Rewards”: which are hardly ever stocked The great mystery of the “ SiJCP Email Distribution List ” is still….you guessed it – a mystery! No one, not even store employees, know how to get on this email distribution list.  The investigation is still ongoing  Communication isn’t consistent  and each store seems to operate differently. BTW, if you had a good experience at the store, please complete the survey – this means a lot to the hard working SA’s.   Thanks everyone for your help

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?

31 Days of Perfume Challenge
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!

What eyeshadow is good for a purple prom dress?
The dress is a rich blue-purple with silver embroidery and silver crystal beading. I was thinking maybe silver glittery eyeshadow look, but I wanted to get some other opinions. My heels are glittery and silver as well, and I'm not sure what to do with my hair, so if you have recommendations for that too, feel free to share ideas. I have long dirty blonde hair and blue-green eyes. (apologies for the flash in the first picture)

Specific question for those that currently use NARS Sheer Glow!
Hello all!   So my current best foundation color match is NARS Siberia. I've been using the Sheer Glow for the past three months and I'm still trying to "figure it out". I feel like the formula is really finicky and I have yet to find a good combination of primers and/or setting powder/spray to make it both last well & mesh well with my skin. I don't think it's a skincare problem as my skin has been relatively normal-dry these past few months (no big skin changes and my daywear moisturizer is relatively 'basic'. I save my layers of hydration for overnight).   So far things I have tried:   - Too Faced Hangover: helped hydrate dry patches that Sheer Glow emphasizes but doesn't help longevity. Sheer Glow still applies a little patchy over this - Becca Ever Matte: too matte for Sheer Glow which tends to emphasize any dry patch - Hourglass Mineral Veil: seems to be the best combo so far, but doesn't help with Sheer Glow longevity. Still totally starts breaking down/melting by hour three. - A single drop of argan oil: makes Sheer Glow apply so smooth and evenly BUT foundation is totally breaking up on my face a couple hours into wear. - RCMA No Color Powder (talc + silica): is okay, but makes Sheer Glow a little dry looking, doesn't totally help with lasting powder - CoverFx Illuminating Setting Powder: doesn't make Sheer Glow look dry, but definitely doesn't help with lasting powder - Urban Decay All Nighter spray: makes Sheer Glow tacky, maybe helps lasting power when in combo with a powder as well   For the sake of a control, all foundation application has been to dot it on with fingers and blend with beautyblender.   I've tried various combinations of one of the primers + powder + spray, primer + no powder, no primer + powder, etc. etc. It's been a long somewhat scientific process, haha.   I would just love for this foundation to work on me! I love the color and I can put up with the sheerness of it if I can just get it to work Most days in the morning I've been in too much of a rush to play this long layering game with Sheer Glow and I've been slapping a little Tarte shape tape everywhere and pretending it's foundation, lol   TLDR:  My question to those who currently use NARS Sheer Glow and it looks good on their skin. What combination of primer / powder / spray /technique do you use to make it wear nicely?

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

Spring 2017 Lipstick Challenge
Hello there, my pretties! Are we ready for spring yet? I am not necessarily ready for sun ( ), but I know I'm ready to bust out some bright colors and create my own spring magic. Rules are - there are no rules. ( Except - you must have fun! That's obligatory! ) We do feel like brights and pastels during the spring most of the time, but you do whatever you feel like doing. You do you! Try to go through your stash, and introduce us to a new pretty each day. If brights are not your cup of tea, this challenge is an excellent way to try to, well - challenge yourself. But, they are not a must.   We are planning on doing this all spring long! Please, feel free to stop by whenever.   So...   Keep calm and put your lipstick on!               My plan ( and goal ) is to shop my own stash. No buying new lipsticks, just giving some love to all my neglected lovelies. Let's see how will that go...   Lipstick Playground thread is here:   http://community.sephora.com/t5/Lips/Lipstick-Play ground/m-p/2020866#M18488

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. You will ship priority shipping not ground! 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. Imlostagain 8. YoiFran 9. Petisweetmom 10.

Best compact foundation with NO sunscreen or talc??
Every cream compact foundation I used to use has either been discontinued or reformulated and I am lost, currently using Estee Lauder Double Wear Makeup to Go as it's the least annoying of the liquid foundation and cushion compacts I have already tried and tossed but it would be better if it was just a solid cream instead of annoying liquid.   I am seeking a non-drying cream compact foundation with no sunscreen or talc, is this now totally impossible?
