Oil blend vs 100% single oils (Argan in particular)
So for the past couple of years I've been using the 100% Argan oil daily and my skin loves it!  I started with Argan when my skin got increasingly sensitive because I knew Argan was one of the top ways to get your skin to absorb maximum quantities of Vitamin E, which had historically be a great healer for my skin.  Now my skin is still very sensitive, but is willing to tolerate some other products so I have been wondering about whether it made sense to either replace Argan oil entirely with a blended oil in my regime, or use a different oil in connection with it to get maximum benefits.  Other than being sensitive (and allergic to almonds), my skin tends to be a bit dry, particularly during the height of summer and winter when central air systems blast, but not so dry the rest of the time that I'd classify it as truly dry.  I'm also in my thirties and although I've aged well, most women in my family don't so I'd love to maximize my anti-aging benefits.   I'd wondered about adding something like Sunday Riley's Juno, Algenists' oil, marula oil, Kate Somerville's Dilo, Nude's oils, or one of the other options that people with sensitive skin love.  Any suggestions or thoughts???

Deals Too Good to Pass Up (Take 3)
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 link to acknowledge it. A heart with no comment means I already have the deal or am deciding not to list it. Thanks for sharing. Repeats are always welcome, so if you're unsure if something was previously posted, post it. People who may have missed it the first time could see the second posting. Don't forget to list the retailer, so everyone knows where to get your deal. If you're posting about something on sale at Sephora, share it here. http://community.sephora.com/t5/Hauls/Sephora-Sale s-Section-Get-it-Now/m-p/2122832#M44949

Hey Beauties- We have ALOT of threads around here for Tom Ford products.

Happy Shopping!

Hi, I was wondering if anyone in Canada has ordered any products from Dose of colors and knows if they charge you extra fees at your front door, I had a bad experience with unpronounced door fees with ABH before and don't want to go through it again(its ridiculous that if u buy from ABH in Canada the shipping is already like $30 cad and then they charged me $25 at my door😡😡).

Having trouble finding the right foundation
Hi,   I have oily, acne-prone skin, with an olive/neutral undertone (i think). I also have acne scars on my cheeks and a little bit on my forehead as well. I have tried a few foundations but none of them seem to be the "one." I am currently using the Becca primer and I use the MakeUp Forever HD powder to set.   I previously had Clinique Stay-matte oil free foundation in 20: Deep natural....It seemed to work fine but I recently noticed the foundation oxidizing, or it could have been that the shade was too dark for me, it looked too orange. So i decided to try out a new foundation (although I may go back to this one if I don't find a better one).   In between I tried Born this Way (Honey-color was good), Make-up forever cream stick, Becca ever-matte...but my skin looked too oily with all of these.   I also tried NARS all day luminous weightless foundation in Barcelona. I loved how this foundation looked; the shade was perfect, felt great on my skin. However, I noticed dry patches and the foundation sat on top of my skin after a couple hours (oxidizing as well-seems to be a big problem for me). I really wish this foundation worked for me but sadly it didn't.   So I am now looking for another one. Any suggestions?

Sephora Virtual Artist Is Here!
Happy Friday, BeautyTalk!   Sephora has a very exciting launch you may have gotten a sneak peek of on our Snapstory the other day: Sephora Virtual Artist!    In case you haven't heard, Sephora Virtual Artist just launched and allows you to try on, no joke, THOUSANDS of lip shades from anywhere. It's super easy to use and pretty addicting once you start swatching because you can compare multiple shades and even share your favorites. Best part is you're trying on TONS of shades without having to clean off all the pigment in between swatches     Here's how to use Sephora Virtual Artist: Step 1: Head to our app and scroll to the bottom or head to  http://www.sephoravirtualartist.com/ Step 2: If you're on the site you'll need to take or upload a photo (well-lit and high res is best!) and confirm where your lips are outlined. Step 3: Start playing around! You can pick from lipsticks and glosses, filter your preferences, try on according to shade family. Step 4: Compare! You can compare four shades at once.  Step 5: Share! Once you've picked 4 lip colors you can save the image, share it with friends or upload to your social media accounts (Instagram for the app and Facebook, Twitter, Pinterest and email from the site).    Oh and, of course, feel free to share your favorite lip shades here on BeautyTalk. You wouldn't buy a lipstick without asking your community first if it looked fierce, right? Didn't think so

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.

The Deals To Good to Pass Up Deal Sharers Traveling Box
*The waitlist is open. There are already 11 confirmed participants with 3 pending. Since we have a full roster, I will probably start this around mid to late February. I will post the box contents and the planned start date about a week before I ship to give everyone a chance to specify if the start date or contents require them to shuffle. Once everyone is comfortable in their spot, we will exchange addresses. Your official spot will be confirmed once I and the person in front of you has your address.   This box is open to deal lovers who regularly contribute to the Deals Too Good to Pass Up Thread . I know some people are faster at sharing deals, so even those who contribute to conversations (I love reading the conversations almost as much as the deals) without posting deals are eligible. It does not matter if you're relatively new to the boards or trades (I am not looking at hearts or posting history) as long as you're active in the thread.   None of the boxes I've seen look too similar to this one in that they're drug store exclusive (like the lovely dolceloure), genre specific, mostly high-end (like my friend Kateye7), deluxe exclusive, open to used items, etc. I'd like to consider this one a deal box. Regardless of how you came upon the deal (subscription box, kit, GWP, purchased it, etc) or what size it is (foil, deluxe, full-size, etc), it is ok as long as it is new.      Guidelines   Spoiler (Highlight to read) If you have contributed often, I will know who you are. I read all the main posts and most of the sub-posts. If I do not know who you are or you have not contributed enough, I will not hold a spot for you. My intent is to have a box where deal lovers share items they do not want with people who may have helped them score a deal at one time or another. If you have not discussed deals with others, there are a number of other boxes open right now.   Round one will be US only. If we have a round two, I will ship the box to Canada as long as one of the Canadian members is willing to ship it back to US. The first 10 spots in each round will be set aside for each country. Between Rounds, I will remove items people in the next round are not interested in (by posting and giving them three days to ask for what we keep inside) to make space in the box. I will either hold the items here until the end of all rounds and take them for donation then or take them after each round depending on what everyone prefers.    New items only unless you have a used or swatched item someone behind you is interested in. Make sure you post the possible item to the open board and wait for someone in the box to express interest before including it. I am donating to Shade Tree (a shelter for abused women and children) in Las Vegas, and they only accept new items. Please do not open or swatch anything you are not planning on taking. If you swatch it and see it is not for you, trade for it anyway. Hopefully, you can trade it with someone willing to take used items.   Our primary spots are filled . They are understocked on items for women with darker skin tones, so if you can guarantee new, darker toned items (includes medium to dark ranges) and are a thread contributor, I will make a spot for you (up to 20 people).    All new items are welcome from drugstore to high-end, because I've received all levels in kits, subscription boxes, GWP, and more. Trades should be fair. Try to swap in the same category: foil for foil, deluxe for deluxe, full-size for full-size, drugstore for drugstore, mid-range for mid-range, and high-end for high-end. Exceptions can be made for unicorns or trading a full-size item from a lower category for a deluxe. Example: if you take a deluxe mid range cream worth about $7, you can place a new, full-sized drugstore foundation worth $7-$10. They are short specifically on foundation, so I would prefer to see that whenever possible.  Only full-size items need a value placed on them when adding or removing to make sure anyone who removes them matches or exceeds their value. Deluxe samples and foils will not be valued unless the item is sold in deluxe/travel size like a Dual ended Bite Lipstick or 0.5oz GlamGlow, Exfolikate, etc. If the item is not sold in that size, trade it for a similar item.    While I do not personally like the idea of signing off on a trade, I think everyone should post their trades (with pictures and descriptions of the ins and outs), and give the other box participants 24 hours to bring any objections. If no one has any, your trade is approved and you are free to ship out. As such, members should check in once a day to have their voice heard. I think three business days with the box is fair, so I would appreciate anyone who needs longer send me and the person behind him/her a pm if s/he cannot send it by the end of the third day.   We will start with a medium USPS box, and I hope it never gets bigger than a large USPS box. You get $50 of free ins this way, so it is my preferred shipping method. If you choose not to ship through USPS, please check with the person you're shipping to first. If they are not home when the box arrives, they may want to coordinate another shipping address. Regardless of shipping method, a tracking number is required and must be shared either publicly to the thread or privately to me and the recipient.    Everyone should provide their name and address to the person in front of them and copy me on that pm, so I can have it as well.    I like the spreadsheet idea to track what is in the box, so I will probably ask everyone to add and remove their items to a Google Doc.   There is no specific buy-in per se, but I think all trades should be more valuable than what you're taking out. That way, the charity wins. Duplicates are okay (within reason). This box is going to charity, and some items may be welcome to multiple recipients. I'd rather not see 5 of the same item (unless it is foundation) or even 3 if the item is large.    If you decide to sign up, please request your spot and items you may be interested in trading for. We may have your items and may not include them unless we specifically see someone requesting them. If you have contributed often, I will know who you are. I read all the main posts and most of the sub-posts. If I do not know who you are or you have not contributed enough, I will not hold a spot for you.

Too Faced Canadian Prices vs American Prices
I couldn't find a Too Faced thread for the life of me, so forgive me if one already exists! I got an email the other day from Too Faced about their Peanut Butter and Jelly palette (which is the most adorable makeup item I've ever seen btw), so I looked on their website to see how much it was. I was shocked to find out their 9-pan eyeshadow palettes are $52 Canadian! $52!!! That's only $7 less than the 16-pan palettes on Sephora! I switched to American dollars on their website out of curiosity, and the 9-pan palettes were only $36! I understand that our dollar is really low right now, but c'mon! A $16 price difference between American and Canadian dollars? And a $7 price difference between Too Faced website and Sephora? AND Too Faced charges $20 for shipping!!! Anyway, excuse the rant, I'm just so tired of Canadians getting screwed on pretty much everything.   Also, I heard that the Peanut Butter and Jelly palette isn't going to be available at Sephora, but if anyone knows this for sure please let me know! I'm obviously not going to order it from Too Faced!

It's pretty dry and I have a lot of frizz and static, as you've probably noticed in my WCC photos. I've never dyed my hair so I don't need any products for color-treated hair. You should probably also know that I use Neutrogena's T-Gel shampoo about 2-3 times a week for my seborrheic dermatitis.   Here are a few of the S&C I've tried: Bumble and bumble Thickening - I've bought this before and it did nothing for my hair. Alterna Bamboo Shine - also wasn't impressed with this one. Carol's Daughter Monoi - really liked this and it foamed a lot for a sulfate-free shampoo which was great. I only had a foil packet though so I'm not sure how I would like it after multiple uses  Ideally I would like to find a S&C without sulfates and parabens.   Do you have any recommendations on what I should use to help my dry and frizzy hair?

Favorite Mask or treat yourself products
So its that time of year when a lot of us either get gift cards, or get ourselves a little something special just because we deserve it, and face masks are one of the things I always think of as the perfect little indulgence--not too expensive, but mostly not something I think of as an absolute necessity so not something I usually buy for myself and the perfect thing to treat yourself with.  Since its been a couple of years since we had a thread on favorite masks and with so many new ones that have come out, I thought this might be a fun discussion to have so......   1) what are your favorite masks and why? 2) do you have another favorite treat yourself product/purchase?

Sephora Sales Section- Get it Now!
If you see something awesome in the Sephora sales section, let us know. Sometimes items sell out quickly, so they get buried in other threads. Even if I check multiple times a day (and I sometimes do), you may check at a different time and find stock on items I missed (and vice versa). It seems like stock is often updated around 9am Pacific, but that is not always a given.   If you find something on sale not listed in the sales section, please list that here as well. Share your Easter Eggs with us. Thanks!
