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 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 !

so i was just talking to my coworker about how, whether or not i like it, i always feel stronger--like i can tackle the world better--if i'm feeling good about myself physically. this led to us talking about our "beauty goals" of the new year, how we want to refresh ourselves, what image we want to project onto the world, etc. so, with that in mind, what are your goals this year ?    disclaimer, though i doubt it's necessary because we're all lovely: one person's goal may be the polar opposite of another person's goal and that is ok ! it's not to diminish what other's want to achieve. i think it's key to keep this in mind, particularly in the age of instagram beauty one-upping, if that makes sense ?   more minimal makeup. not necessarily  less  product on my face, but just a more toned down, chic, light hand and vibe.  keep hair as healthy as possible, but let it go wild. i will be compensating the more light handed makeup with unashamedly ginormous unkempt hair !  spend less money on makeup, but i'm ok with spending (what i can) on skincare. i'm working on decluttering my collection, just a bit, and i'm happy to spend time really using and loving the things i have.  get new glasses that i love, wear more regularly to give my poor eyeballs a break.  but still go full-on out of this world avant garde glam if i want to. my point being: no reason to be self conscious in 2017 ! i'll add more below if i think of any. how about you guys ? super eager to hear what everyone's goals and thoughts are........

Beauty Blunders and cute/funny beauty stories...
I thought that it would be fun to start a thread where we can share funny, cute, heartwarming or slightly embarrassing beauty stories.      I have two to kick off the thread.  The first one, Is a cute story.  My oldest girls are 4 & 6, yesterday it was pretty cold here, so they decided to play "beach".  As I was cleaning from dinner and taking care of my one year old I could hear tidbits of their role play.  What caught my attention is my oldest said, "After the beach, do you want to go to the makeup store?"  My four year old quickly responded with, "Sephora!  Let's go to Sephora after the beach so we can get new makeup!"  I thought that it was cute and I didn't think that I took them to Sephora that much (I try to go by myself so I can actually look instead of having to tell them to stop swatching).   My second story is funny, but if you ask my husband he wouldn't agree.  He was giving them a bath tonight and told them that they could use a bath bomb from Lush.  Normally, I do that bath bombs, but I had to fill out some papers for their school, so he decided to.  When I was finished with the paperwork, I went into the bathroom.  When I walked in the tub was filled to the brim with bubbles and there were bubbles on the tile wall and some overflowing onto the floor.  I asked my husband if they decided on a bubble wand instead because it looks like they went overboard.  His response, "No, that was a bath bomb.  You know the cone shaped one."   It was a bubble bar he threw in the tub and instead of breaking a piece off he threw the entire bar into the tub, not realizing that bubble bars don't just come on sticks.  He told me that he won't be doing any more baths with any type of bubble bars or bath bombs because there are too many products to try to keep straight. Lol!

What's your makeup bag worth?
Inspired by this video @mochapj posted in the Random Thoughts thread:     Because nobody wants to deal with the time commitment (or potential shame spiral) of pricing our collections in their entirety, this refers just to an average day's worth of products. Remember: No matter how bad it is, you're in good company.

The Great Rouge Experiment 2
Happy New Year All!   I debated starting this thread again but since I  - inexplicably - made Rouge again, I figured why not ¯\_(ツ)_/¯   Welcome to the Great Rouge Experiment - Part 2.  My rouge status is good until December 31, 2017.  Last year we documented every "Rouge-only" perk to determine whether being Rouge was "worth it"  And I figured we can do it again this year to see if the program is getting better (or worse).   Just like last year, every Rouge-only perk or event that I hear about will go on this thread and if you hear anything please please please add it to this year-long running list.  And then on December 31, 2017 we can really assess whether it is worth the extra $600+ to be Rouge and if the Rouge program in general is improving.   Mods, last year this thread was moved to the Rouge-only area which I don't think was helpful to non-Rouge BIs who are wondering about the program.  I'd really like to keep the thread here if you don't mind.  Thanks!   January - TBD   Spoiler (Highlight to read)   February -   March -   April -   May -   June -   July -   August -   September -   October -   November -   December -  February - March - April - May - June - July - August - September - October - November - December -

Products That Have Pleasantly Surprised You ?
just a fun excuse / avenue to discuss products. i want this thread to be as positive as possible, so focusing on pleasant surprises. if, though, you're biting to talk about a (surprising) disappointment, check out this thread here, which is also great fun for constructive discussion: /It-Didn-t-Work-For-Me/m-p/2550412   MURAD hydro-dynamic quenching essence serum . ok i know i'm going on and on about this (and will be doing even more so in my monthly favorites, no doubt), but this stuff has blown my mind ! i've tried loads of serums through the years that target dehydration. some work right away but fail to keep working, others clog my pores due to the types and grades of silicones. i was expecting a similar experience with this one, but figured in a bit of desperation that i'd give it a try. now, this one is not entirely silicone free, but i've had no problems with it clogging my pores, and it has worked miracles on my skin. it also contains a bit of glycolic acid (not enough to 'over do it', though, when used in conjunction with my other acids. oils and moisturizers are performing even better; skin is happy and bouncy. ORIGINS ginzing brightening eye cream . i've been shocked, too, by how much i like this one ! as i've said in another thread, i wasn't keen on using a 'brightening' eye cream that brightens through light reflectors rather than other "from within" ingredients, but heck, i love this. it keeps my under eyes hydrated but is not too thick (sometimes a hard combo to find) and i find when my undereyes are properly hydrated then everything about them looks better--brightness (light reflectors or not !), suppleness, everything.  DR DENNIS GROSS ultra gentle alpha beta peel . i didn't think this would do much for me because my skin is so used to acids that i didn't think these would do 'enough'. but nope, these are extraordinary. their main acid is lactic acid--which is the extra gentle but way effective AHA in my experience. would recommend for anyone to try regardless of their acid usage ! GIVENCHY photo perfexion fluid foundation . what surprised me about this is not the formula but the color selection. do not let the 'order' or numbers fool you, the 2nd shade in the range is just as pale as the first shade, but significantly yellower. it's a perfect match for me (it's VERY similar to NARS siberia, for those curious), and it is what set of a light bulb off above my head about how to better look for my color matches in other foundation ranges.  NARS velvet lip glides . i know these aren't a gloss, but they're the closest thing i've used to a gloss in a long long time. i didn't think i'd be into it because of the gloss-similarities, but i was wrong. i've not enjoyed simply wearing a product THIS much in a long time. as @mochapj said, it's like smearing pudding on your a good way. beginning to enjoy such sensory pleasures after The Year Of The Ultra Matte. i'll add more below as i think of any / experience more surprises !    how about you ??

Stigma on Returning Items
I always try to utilize Sephora's free samples whether it be in store or online to try to get a feel for a product, but for some items that can be otherwise impossible, i.e. mascara, lipstick, gloss, etc. And at times (okay a lot of times) I find myself returning product whether it be the product didn't work out for me or it was an impulse buy that I shouldn't have made. Just wondering if I'm alone in maybe overusing Sephora's very liberal return policy? (Just putting it out there, when I return the impulse buys, they are unused and can go back on the shelf!) I've made Rouge for the second time in a row so it's not like they can necessarily complain about my patronage but I always feel self conscious when I make a return...especially at other stores!

I've been thinking about creating this for a while hoping it can help everyone be organized with new releases.  I know we have brand threads, preview/releases threads, product link threads, etc... and I love all those and hope nothing changes. This thread would be reserved to keep dates of new releases and nothing else. Just like a calendar. I'll do my best to maintain the OP. If anyone has anything to add please tag me in your comment so I can update the thread to keep everyone informed.  I am hoping we can get help from the mods in confirming some of these dates especially in Canada.

Discussion for the Diptyque Crowd (please join!)
If you are a fan obsessed or just a beauty lover curious about Diptyque, come on over! I thought this would be a fun place to share your thoughts, collections, decorating ideas, questions about the fabulous world of Diptyque. I started out with one candle, the Beverly Hills candle-which is so fabulous-I'll post a picture of it tomorrow-thinking I was crazy to buy a $70 candle. Yes, it's crazy-crazy good! I've since collected 2 or 3 more and purchased a perfume. This week I got my first body care item, the satin body oil. I really love everything from Diptyque. So let's discuss One question I have is how do you get the inside cleaned out so you can use the jars for pretty collections like I see a lot of on social media?

You've been super helpful! Drew attention to the print + gave alternatives.. what more could I ask for 😄 see post
2017 Use your hoard challenge!!!
Ok BT  members. I know you all have a lot of goodies in your hoard, er collection!   Let's talk about a way to use our goodies!  It can be makeup, clothes, new luxury items, anything! Fine China  that we could have a nice cup a tea and a snack on , a new bag with tags on it, waiting for a special occasion, an LE palette we are scared to swatch.   But we could start by posting what we want to use, a pic of it , if it did work for us and what we will do with it!  I need inspiration, because I admit I hoard and collect .      For example. 1. I have LE powder highlighter , I am hoarding this like it will pay my mortgage, lol. 2. I will post a pic of item to commit to trying it . 3. I will use my item and report  back, if it was good it stays and gets into the rotation , if it unperformed I can purge it or find a better place for it.

oh my goodness, thank our lucky clover, 2016 is just about over.     let's focus on the positive and think about our YEARLY favorites ! i've structured it a bit to try to make it less overwhelming, but there are no strict rules--if you want to list more or less than 5, that's fine of course. if you want to just list your faves and not explain why, absolutely cool with that too. if you want to write a novel about each product, fantastic. do whatever you want, really,  and perhaps most importantly: it can be new products launched this year, old products you discovered this year, tried and true products that maintained their HG status this year, whatever ! this is just supposed to be fun !   (ahem: after posting mine below, i can not emphasize enough that no one should feel obligated to explain  why you've loved something. apparently there is a 20,000 character limit and i exceeded it trying to post my thoughts. please feel free to pick and choose what you want to go into details about )   the template is below, i've kept it blank for easy copying / pasting.      MAKEUP !

  lord i've been so busy this month i almost forgot to do my favorite post !   don't forget there is a YEARLY favorites thread here: /2016-YEARLY-FAVORITES/m-p/2627571#M225440   URBAN DECAY vice lipstick, "safeword" . i've been going for very quick and easy looks this month. this is a fantastic nude; not too light, gives just enough contrast, but also effortless. i'd say it's a slightly cooler version of MAC velvet teddy. NARS blush, sin . when i was wearing a bit more than a no makeup makeup look this month, this is the blush i grabbed. it's my favorite winter blush, gives a hint of that snow bunny flushed look, and goes so dang well with a berry lip, too. LAURA MERCIER flawless skin infusion de rose nourishing oil. i had such a hard time with this one at first. i had a deluxe sample, and found that my skin LOVED IT. i found it to be 'thinner' than most oils, absorbed quickly (both of which help for a daytime, under makeup oil), and seemed to play well with my skin when it was hormonal as well. but i hated the price--the main oils are very cheap (sunflower, safflower and the rather generic 'vegetable' oil), so why was it so expensive ?! i stopped using my deluxe sample out of protest--but the protest didn't last long. i asked for this for christmas, my dad got it for me (!!!! for some lovely reason that cracked me up) and i'm so happy with it. i think the secret here is how refined these oils are, it's a quality product, i assure you ! DEVACURL b'leave-in. i'm not quite sure what it is but i love it. is it a leave in conditioner with a gel-like consistency ? a curl definer or a gel ? it's kind of all of these things. this leave my curls defined and so so shiny. sometimes i use it with a gel to get extra hold and to keep that definition in place, but sometimes i just use this. on soaking wet hair. i feel like this one is a bit of an unsung hero of the devacurl range, and i highly recommend curly girls check it out ! SERGE LUTENS ambre sultan . this is my favorite perfume of all time, and has been so for years. someone gave me a bottle recently and said "here, i know this is your favorite but you never wear it because you're scared of running out. now you have an extra". bless. this is just The Ultimate in my book. i just feel like me when i wear it.

Thoughts on Botox for brow lift...
I'm always self conscious of my eyes being different sizes, It really shows in photos the most. I think it's cause one side of my brow is more saggy than the other. Do any if you have experience with Botox, and if so do you think it could help? Any tips appreciated.     #SickOfLookingLikeQuasimodo
