What is your most cherished/beloved/rare item in your make up collection?
And the follow up question is: do you ever use it? I'm really curious with all of the talk about LE items, Asian exclusives, and just those hard to get items!

Can you give us an update on it? I saw Christine's (Temptalia) review of it and it looks pretty with the silvery glacier decorations on each color. I'm wondering if it's... see post
Are you "trialing" a new product ? Want to talk about it ?
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 mula 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 !

Saving & Preparing for Barney's Mid-Feb Awesome Love Yourself GWP ($250?)
Updates & FAQs:   HERE IS THE MARCH 2015 (Ladies') BAG !     Barney's Spring Bag Event is: March 10-14, 2015!   SA's in stores (all beauty counters at Barneys locations) are accepting pre orders NOW.     The order amount for the GWP is $200 this time (not $250!).   Want to order from an SA in store?  Scroll down in the thread for ordering info/SA contact information.   Brand information: There are some brands NOT sold on Barney's website that are available if you place an order with an SA through a brick and mortar store .  We are working to compile a list.   *I contacted the Beverly Hills Barney's location by phone but they were unable to give me any information on beauty brands not on the website that are available in store.  Yuck. *I talked with Anna O. in Apothecary at Barney's BH, but she said she didn't know anything about Barney's.com and couldn't tell me what brands they offered that weren't online. *I have left a message with the concierge at Barney's New York -  Manhattan flagship store asking specifically for a list of beauty brands sold in store so I can compare myself (or if they know which ones are in store that are not available on Barneys.com that would be great, but after talked to BH location I doubt it), we will see if they call me back.  Update: They never returned my call. *I have emailed Barneys CS to ask about beauty brands sold in store - no answer. Update: still no answer. *I also emailed Irene, she did confirm no Guerlain or Tom Ford cosmetics.   Chanel - Even thought it's not available on Barney's website, it is available to order through an SA in store (see the thread for more information). Tom Ford - I believe fragrances are available through Barney's in store and online; cosmetics are not (not even through an SA in store). Guerlain - It seems like this brand is not available (not even through an SA in store). Shu Uemera - Online reviews say this brand can be purchased through the Barney's Chicago store.   Please post your additional info in the thread and I can update this FAQ list.   *************   Favorite Barney's product recs welcome!  Let's discuss our favorite products they offer, our wish lists, and what we'll be ordering to get the GWP!   The backstory:  Spoiler (Highlight to read) I am eagerly anticipating the Feb Barney's GWP, which is one of the best I've ever gotten.  I'm going to place a pre-order with the NYC store (through the store it seems even better/get extras!).  I'm filling my Barney's Favorites list online to keep track, as I pull together my order...     I have been putting off other purchases and saving my pennies!  I will stock up on a few basics, and a few news/splurges.  Cash has been tight for me the last 6-9mos, so I have been really looking forward to this purchase.   What are you thinking of getting?  What products do you love that are sold at Barneys?  Recommendations - want to trys!?   This is the place to get excited with me...   P.S. I don't think the official word is out on the dates (previously their big twice-annual GWP have started on Wed or Thurs, and the last two years this one started on Feb 10, and Feb 13th... so I'm thinking if I'm lucky this Love Yourself bag will start Feb 11 or 12, 2015).  If you have rumors or insider info let me know!

Great, thanks so much for confirming. That's what I thought, but wanted to double check. :-) see post
Who is as dumb as me? Feel free to add anything dumb/funny you did lately!
Today as I am looking through the orders that are on the way to me I noticed that I ordered 2 more of the same product. One I have already (GA Brow Maestro-ordered same color, wanted to order a different one). And I placed two different orders for Glamglow Thirstycleanse! What a dumbo! Now both those orders will have to be returned...ugh! I just can't believe I did this considering I was checking and rechecking my orders. And yes...I ordered them all from Sephora! Go ahead laugh and tell me what I already know,...I am indeed an addict and a goofy one at that. I'm blaming it on the weather since I think it's causing more confusion than usual! Ok that and a serious lack of sleep...zzzzzzz (I wish!)

Spring 2015 Collections
So I've seen a couple of threads for specific Spring 2015 launches (MUFE 50 Shades, Nars, etc). I thought it would be cool to post any and all new collection releases/launches in the same thread. I was searching around trying to find the newest stuff and scout out my next purchases. Here's what I've found so far:   Dior Spring 2015 - Kingdom of Colors (Images from A Bit Of Blusher)     Guerlain Spring 2015 (Images from Rouge Deluxe) Isn't this collection so cute?!?!

Limited Edition 2015 Madness….discuss and share here!
So lately, I've been a little crazy about Limited Editions. For example, I am really sad about not getting a hold of this Givenchy Confetti powder. I really want to be in on the next 'must have'…anyone have ideas/predictions of what will be the hottest limited editions coming up?   Historically, which limited editions have been those that sold out and became collector's items? I think my collection is getting to the point where I want to start adding those special pieces and be ready for them.  I think there was talk about the Estee Lauder Courreges Highlighter powder being an update of the Heat Wave, it's on pre-order on EL.com and quickly went out of stock on Sephora.

Confessions of a shopaholic...
  So today while at the dentist office with my hubby, I saw on the news about the priest David who is accepting confessions on snapchat while I am no where near that point of desperation to contact said priest... I figured I'd dish out my dirty little secret here to the BT world...   Every once in a while maybe twice a year I get this uncontrollable urge to spend, its like I'm a crack addict and I need to score some good deals... This week long binge started when I was sick for a few days and I started doing some "online browsing"... which soon turned into "Ooppps now I'm shopping". Now mind you I am very frugal (except when it comes to makeup) I even have my budget made through the end of 2015, and I am usually pretty good at staying within my set limits... but when I get this itch to spend I can't control it!!! Now don't rush to conclusions and think I am putting myself in debt or anything, I would never spend more than I have.... And luckily my husband doesn't mind when I treat my self because it doesn't happen often (if it happened more than 2x a year he'd definitely rethink his "cheaper to keep her" mentality)   So here I am at what I believe to be the end of this week long binge of online shopping, and feeling somewhat hung over, definitely not any buyers remorse, but not as much excitement as I had when I was shopping (maybe because none of my boxes have yet been delivered by drug dealer UPS- and yes I have been faithfully tracking my shipments)...  I'm desperately awaiting all my shipments and I hope to receive them before I go on my cruise on the 14th!!!   So what better way to end my confession than to share the items I acquired on my week long binge... I honestly think I was pretty frugal buying some used items rather than paying retail for some... I also used ebates or shopathome, promo codes and some gift cards when applicable... I also bought a membership to ilovethisdiet and purchased some new meal prep containers on amazon... since I plan to start eating better once I get back from the cruise and tbh I probably gained 5 lbs on my week long binge...   Amazon- the lights and stuff is for a vanity mirror project I will be working on will post pics when complete Ebay   Sephora       Ulta Mac   Macys   Exchange   Tradesy

Suggestions on where to find a good non-leather handbag?
I'm in the market for a new handbag and I'm having difficulty finding non-leather items. Since the BT community is so large I thought I'd throw this out there to get some suggestions as we buy more than just makeup. I've found one brand that looks intruiging, Matt & Nat, but they don't have a lot of color variations. I've Google searched enough for the moment. Just looking for a few ideas/suggestions from some fresh eyes!   Thanks!

30 day lipstick challenge
For those of us that love lipsticks and have several of them, do you rotate or reach for the same few? I wear some more than others. And some have been neglected a lot (although they are very pretty). I thought of holding myself to wearing a new lipstick everyday for 30 days. Lets see how long this will last.

FAB FEB FAVORITES ?
i can't believe it's already march ! i love discussing monthly favorites because the positivity and enthusiasm just cheers me up.   for me, hmmm:   SKINCARE NUDE omega jelly cleanser. i declared it HG status back in late 2014, but feburary i rekindled and reaffirmed my love for it (check the skincare HG thread if you're interested in why ) TATA HARPER replenishing nutrient complex. a facial oil, i got this mid-january, but did not use it much until feb. i love it. it makes my skin happy. it absorbs well and smells divine. skin feels fed (particularly when used in conjunction with the nude cleanser) NUDE miracle mask. i got this as a gift for xmas (yay !) but was hardly able to use it until february as well. i am really enjoying it. it reminds me of the amazing REN glycol lactic mask, even though the nude one does not contain lactic acid (ah, if only it did...) in terms of consistency. it's very gentle and effective so i'd be very confident in recommending this to people wanting to try out AHA masks..... MAKEUP LAURA MERCIER caviar eye sticks.....and cream shadows in general. i've had these since december but only realllly fell in love with them the second half of feb. i love cream shadows because they're easy, they set (when well formulated, and, i've found, not layered on  too  thick) and while you can layer them for a multi tonal effect, i don't find it necessary. single shades are multi-dimensional enough to really create a beautiful effect while blended out....and i actually prefer 1-2 colors only on my lids, so these are perfect . i can't wait to explore the world of cream shadows even more NARS semi-matte lipstick in catfight. picked this up and it was instant love. their semi-matte lipsticks are just a wonderful formulation and i'd recommend them to anyone looking for a matte lipstick that is non drying (yet non-slippery). GUERLAIN maxi lash mascara. maxi lashes, no clumping, new favorite. smells faintly of roses. ...and finally NARS all day luminous weightless foundation. this has been a very interesting journey. when i trialed it with a sample, i decided to skip it. upon my last day of use i tried a different application method, and i decided i didn't want to go without it. siberia is a perfect match for my skin, and as long as my skin is well prepped, it doesn't look like i have on makeup. layers well for more coverage too (though i'd advise letting a thin layer "set" before applying another layer...and it doesn't take long as this foundation sets  fast) HAIR my  new SEDU revolution flat iron. i haven't had to purchase a flat iron in nearly a decade. i mourned the death of my chi because that thing has been through e.v.e.r.y.t.h.i.n.g.  with me, traveled the world with me, and patiently waited for me as my head was shaved. but, alas, it's time came and i lovvvvve this new straightener. and, for whatever it's worth, looks super chic with it's black ceramic plates too ! i didn't know my hair could look this shiny.   how about you ? any new or rekindled beauty love affairs ?

Tuesday Top 5: Regret Purchases
In helping DoctorsMrs and others who have jumped on the No Buy for the rest of August wagon, I thought that rounding up a few regret purchases would be a good topic   -Chantecaille Save the Sharks: Chantecaille makes some of the best eyeshadows and blushes, but this palette was an utter flop. The eyeshadows were extremely chalky and the blush color difficult to pick up, but the palette as a whole just clashed with my skintone.   -Sigma Paris palette: Wanting to support a couple of my favorite Youtube gurus who participated in the making of this palette, I bought this when it first came out. Let's just say Sigma should stick to brushes. The fall out is absolutely ridiculous and pigmentation is lacking!   -Buxom Pug cream shadow: This is an exact dupe of Chanel's Illusion D'ombre in Illusoire. The thing that makes it different is, well, the quality. This shadow not only popped out of the jar after just six months (and with proper storage) but has also a greasy film on top.   -NYX Butter Lip Glosses: Good grief! These were sticky, patchy, and just plain awful. On my lips, they pretty much just slip and slide. Am I the only one who finds these over-hyped??   -MAC Lady Gaga Lipglass: Having missed out on the lipstick, I thought it was a good idea to get the lip glass instead. Sticky like a Venus flytrap, MAC Lipglass has one of the worst lip gloss formulas. Not to mention, the color wasn't all that flattering.   Share away, BTers!

Would you ever get a back up of a product you will never finish?
I love buying beautiful powders, and the fact that they perform well is a bonus. However, most of the time the beauty is on the powder itself and goes awway after use.....but it look so pretty on the face it's a shame not to use it......but it look so gorgeous in the pan it is a shame to ruin the embossing/color.....   The item in question for me is Guerlain Parure de Nuit, which I KNOW I won't be able to finish in the next 3 years if I use it. It's already a bit smeared after a few use and I'd hate to ruin the gorgeous peacock pattern. I kind of want a back up so I can use my current one without worry, but it's produced at least a year ago and buying a $50+ something that I might not use for another 2 or 3 years is......   Do you ever have such dilemma? Back up of something pretty just so you can use the current one without guilt?

What's the craziest thing you've done for Sephora?
I hope y'all are ready for this one:   So, two days ago I went through all my gift cards for Sephora, checked the value twice, and then cut up and threw away the ones that had $0 value. There was only one GC with about $35 on it. Today, I tried placing an order and the website told me that there's $0 on the card.   Naturally, I blame myself for mixing up the gift cards, run outside and dig through snow and garbage in a sweatshirt and sweatpants (essentially looking like a crazy person). My roommate had thrown out the trash so I don't even know which pile it is in, just what the bag looks like. After a phone call with the roommate and searching three different times (over the span of an hour), I finally find the six little cut up pieces.   I come inside, check the values on those, and nada ON ANY OF THEM. I call the Rouge line and lo and behold: it was a website error and the Sephora CS transferred the value onto my online account. And now I feel like a fool.   So I guess my question is: what is the craziest thing you've done for Sephora or makeup? I know we've all done the stay up late, refreshing pages for ages, but is there something that you're secretly super ashamed of? Spill

The Ultimate Sephora Shopping Spree - What Would You Get?
This afternoon I was playing around with my cart - I added a few things that I'm really lusting after and then I had a thought - What if someone told me that I could have the ultimate Sephora shopping spree and get every single thing that I want? Money is no object. There are a lot of things I would buy, especially if my shopping spree took place in store. I added everything that I would buy online to my cart and I'm rather surprised that it's only $1500.00 worth of stuff. There are a few things that I want that are OOS, but for the most part this is everything. Here's what I would buy. What would you get?

MAKEUP MISHAPS !
lipstick teeth ? goopy eye gunk ? vent about it here !   i've had 2 such instances in the past 24 hours. such a glamorous life. i was just at the grocery store, jaunting around feeling fabulous in my new NARS audacious Grace lipstick. when i checked out, the checkout girl told me i had lipstick on my face. somewhere  in between my nose and my eye . how it got there, and how long it had been there, god only knows.   yesterday , i was on a motorcycle. i went into sephora to exchange something. feeling fine, feeling great. only to catch my reflection and see i had black smeared all over my eyes and even a bit down my face: i suppose my eyes had gotten a bit watery on the bike and it just wasn't something i had taken into consideration when applying my makeup that morning. sigh.   so. my name is jemly, and i'm a mess. it happens to us all. feel free to relieve the pressure of embarrassment here !

Small, portable makeup items for purse/makeup bag?
Ive searched for this topic and nothing Im really looking for comes up.  I have a small situation on my chin happening, and the heat has been messed up at work, so Im also somewhat sweaty.  I need to touch up my makeup, but my makeup bag for my purse/desk at work is dismal.  I need new stuff.  I threw away the small eyeshadow compact, the cream blush, and the concealer.     AllI have left are botting linens, a set of brushes in a roll, and eyeliner, and lip products. I just replaced my facial mist, and mascara. I need a small eyeshadow compact, blush, and a way to touch up my face makeup- powder preferable and concealer.  AND anything else you gals have that work miracles in a pinch.     i typically have bobby pins/perfume/safety pins/bandaids/etc- so no need for those recs.     Thank you!

I'm heading to a town tomorrow with the big malls and my Sephora   My bday is on Sunday and I'm turning 34, and wish I felt happy about it.  So, should I get Guerlain Meteorites or the new Nars eyeshadow palette?   What did you ladies or gents buy that made you feel good?   Thanks and I appreciate all of you <3

Sample hording confessions
You know those products that you always intentional get samples of but never buy what are they and why? For me its the random peal off masks because they are entertaining but not super effective. Phyto stuff, I keep telling myself I'll use it when my hair grows out. Fragrances samples specifically 1 million because my husband likes it and I find it  pleasant but boring (also cheese packaging is a turn off).
