soooo.. today I got the inside scoop from an SA who said they just got notice that starting August (first online then in store) Bite 250 Point Perk promos will start appearing!! As speculated - in another thread, there will be BITE mini lipstick and lipgloss duos for 250 BI points. There will be a new duo released each month until December (which makes sense because there are 5 frozen berries). She said she was 100% sure that they would be the minis of the Frozen Berries. However there will not be an Opal lipstick mini. I am excited, I wonder what these lipglosses will be like....
Ok so I've been wanting to make this thread for a while. I've also been wanting to start a "random thoughts" thread...but I figured I'd separate the categories so that at least the "beauty" one is on the front page, rather than hidden in off topic. So, have a beauty-related thought but don't think it's worth starting a thread about ? Post it here ! today I got a facial at an extraordinarily nice spa. A real treat. And the results were immediate and truly great. But guys: she pulled out a clarisonic and a foamy cleanser for that first initial cleanse, and I nearly had a heart attack. Great for a lot of people but most of you know how I feel about those things !!!!!! Overall, as I said, it was great and my skin is happy. But sheesh.
My hair is a little on the dry side; whether I air dry it or blow dry it. I have used many smoothing and leave in products and my hair is still dry and dull looking, esp towards the ends. They tend to be thick and sort of "stuck" if that makes any sense, The ends aren't pretty and bouncy like normal hair should be. Is there a good product I could use on the shaft & ends of my hair to make it "move" more and look/feel softer? I have been putting some polish and serums...shine sprays....dry oil...still looks like crap. I ordered some japanese hair oil on ebay that I read great reviews on but I haven't received it yet. I also can not blow my hair out with a round brush (I fail EVERY time) and I am trying to avoid heat, so the use of a flat iron is out. Thanks for any and al suggestions!
My OCD started kicking after meganlisa suggested the creation of the Summer thread so why not have a Fall one already just to keep ourselves organized? Here we go Burberry and Dior Fall 2015 (Found by Rhiannon1419) Spring Collections - http://community.sephora.com/t5/Beauty-Confessions /Spring-2015-Collections/td-p/1825800 Summer Collections - http://community.sephora.com/t5/Beauty-Confessions /SUMMER-2015-COLLECTIONS/td-p/1927119
I'm bringing my sister as my guest for the event this weekend, and I've never been before so I don't know exactly what to expect. Do we have to walk in together, or will they let her in if she arrives before me?
Hi BT! ** Time to pick our color for next week. Please vote below! A. Bronze B. Pink C. Rose Gold** I've been hijacking threads lately with my various color challenges. It's time for it's own place! The rules: Each week (Sunday- Saturday), there will be a new color to incorporate into your makeup looks. It can be one item of that color or a whole face. Try to incorporate it 4-5 times during the week, and post your pic, or discuss your colors here with everyone! If you can only do a day or two, that's fine too! This should be fun! For folks on a No Buy, it's a great way to shop your collection. I hope you'll join me! Week 2: July 26- August 1: ORANGE!

What are your beauty pet peeves? Here are a few of mine When there's a huge hype around an item/brand or your own hype to get something and you get it and you are just meh. I recently got a few items that were taking FOREVER to get to my house. Canada Post was sooo slow at processing... the items were stuck with them and the tracking wasn't moving at all. I was so excited and couldn't wait for them to be delivered and finally the items just showed up (tracking not updated) and I was like meh... not too impressed with what I got. I thought I'd love it but no... not really. Swatched and sitting in a drawer somewhere... awww that just kills me lol Another one (and this is for the Canadian girls). When you see free shipping on your favorite beauty products and then notice below in very small font US ONLY. ugh So what grinds your gears? Share your stories!!!
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 !

Is anyone else having problems with there orders? I've recently placed an order and it was approved and received with no problem, a couple weeks later I tried to place another and it keeps saying authorization unsuccessful... So I called and spoke to someone and they said I needed to call my bank and confirm my address and call back I did as told and one order went through and my second on didn't . So I tried again and it says in progress..I'm getting very impatient and it is such a big inconvenience. Makes me not want to purchase from here anymore.. Please help
With all of the various threads dedicated to particular brand releases, I thought it would be fun to have one specifically for new and upcoming BITE Beauty. This thread will be for products and collections separate from the Lip Lab Limited Release collection of this calendar year, which can be found over here: http://community.sephora.com/t5/Lips/Bite-Lip-Lab- Sephora-color-of-the-month/m-p/1847087#M18730 Upcoming Releases: July 7 - U.S. Frozen Berries Matte Crème Lipstick Collection and 'Opal' gloss and lipstick toppers launch on Sephora.com (thanks to niki172 for sharing the info on release dates) July 14 (or 16?) - Canadian Maple Matte Crème Lipstick Collection and Maple Agave Lip Mask launch on Sephora.ca (thanks to Mochapj for sharing the info on release dates) July 17 - U.S. Frozen Berries Collection and 'Opal' toppers available in U.S. Sephora stores July 17 - Canadian Maple Collection and Maple Agave Lip Mask available in Canadian Sephora stores Frozen Berries Matte Crème Lipstick: http://www.sephora.com/frozen-berries-collection-P 398405?skuId=1718691 Opal Matte Crème Lipstick: http://www.sephora.com/opal-matte-creme-lipstick-P 398401?skuId=1718733 Opal Crème Lip Gloss: http://www.sephora.com/opal-lip-gloss-P398403?skuI d=1718741 Original post (6 June 2015): Spoiler (Highlight to read) To start things off, I recently came across this image on Instagram, describing a shimmery BITE lipstick topper to be released through Sephora in July (!). Has anyone else heard of this? I did some quick research and tried to gather more information before posting, but I cannot find anything else about it from any other beauty bloggers. Honestly, I can't see the shimmer in this photo, but it's not high quality nor is it a closeup. I also haven't managed to find any product shots yet.

I already have the Filmstar bronze & glow palette but looking into some of her other products. Does anyone have any experiences they would like to share esp with her Light Wonder Foundation, her blush and the Airbrush Flawless Finish Powder? I'm interested in getting these three things but still on the fence about taking the plunge! Please let me know, many BTers opinions have helped me out on products before Thanks in advance!
I've seen things where people say they don't wear makeup to impress guys when guys can't tell the difference between black and navy, or Half Baked from Chopper in the Naked line. Things like that. I remember somewhere in the threads someone posted one with two lipsticks, I thought it was the funniest thing. So as a fun little game, fill in the blanks " You think I wear makeup to impress a guy who can't tell the difference between______and_____?"
I have fairly oily skin, I don't have much acne, my skin is fairly clear I just get a very oily face and find my face looking greasy after the day is over. I use the Urban Decay Naked Skinliquid foundation and find it very poor for my skin type. What would you recommend for my skin type?
I'm looking for a finishing spray or a facial mist/toner that I can also use after makeup application. I already have the skindinavia setting spray, but I don't use that everyday because of the alcohol content, so basically I just want something to make my makeup appear less powdery/more blended on days when I choose not to use a setting spray. There seem to be so many options that I'm not sure what to try. I have combination to dry skin. I am also very sensitive to fragrance. Any recommendations would be appreciated!
so, hooray for made up silly so-called holidays ! in celebration, i ask you: what are you 3 favorite lipsticks of all time ? and what story goes with them ? they don't have to be your 3-right-now favorites, nope, changing this. let's tell our / any lipstick stories ! whatever holds a place in your heart. maybe a lipstick that Changed The Way You Saw Lipstick For Forever. or that you just feel like yourself in. i'll add mine as i think of them !
How do you all blend your foundation into your lighter neck? Mine is MAC Pro Longwear in NW 20 and it's hard to cover the neck with because of its longwear consistency. I tried the shade lighter and looked like a ghost. But I don't love the foundation line- so 8th grade! I have a bronzer I brush onto my neck, but isn't pigmented enough to do the trick. What are your tricks, HG bronzers, etc for this prob?
I am in need of a really really really good shaver ASAP. I have been using this one for a couple months now and i am breaking out around my bikini line from this shaver and on my legs. I want a really good shaver not won't irritate my skin!
I got this email yesterday and I wanted to check and make sure it is authentic, because I don't want to risk a scam and getting my account hacked. It sounds like an exciting opportunity, but before I proceed, I wanted to check with the Sephora experts.
Hello, so I'm looking for the perfect foundation for my skin. I have a very oily tzone with some dry spots (which is why I gave up on nars illuminous foundation cus it would stick to my dry spots really bad) and I also would love a foundation with as much coverage as possible as well as a foundation that stays on for hours. Nothing over $50 cus Ima struggling college kid lol. I'm not a fan of mattifying foundations because for some reason they make skin look lifeless & dry. also my skin is a little sensitive & so I avoid any acne treating foundations cus they tend to contain chemicals that only cause me to break out even more
