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 !

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.

5 Things/Products You are Obsessed with right now .
Lately I have been going over my purchases and I noticed a tiny trend - I am obsessed with some things more than others.   So what are your 5 things/products that you are obsessed with lately (it could be anything - from food to clothing to makeup, etc)?   Mine are: - Skin care (Algenist, face masks, and serums) - Purses (bought 4 purses in one year, and continuing to look .. smh) - Starbucks (holiday drinks) - NARS creamy concealer - Bite Beauty

Beauty Pet Peeves
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!!!

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' 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 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! 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.

Makeup Goals... What are you trying to improve on?
Hey fellow Bt'ers. I know we have so many threads about what we are wanting to buy and what collections and new products are coming up... I thought it would be fun to have a thread that we could share our makeup goals in. It can be about what techniques you want to improve on and what part of your collection you are looking to expand. I look forward to reading all of yours please feel free to update your progress   I'll start.... For my makeup.... I want to improve my contouring and my eyeshadow blending...for that I need to expand my brush collection. I literally  have about 8 brushes to do all my looks. I also want to improve my eyeliner technique...its lacking big time. I need to expand my such a scaredy cat when it comes to putting on bold blushes.

The Halloween Thread - Bring me your ghoulish cosmetic finds
Welcome my pretties! Ok, I've been dying to start this thread. Get it...dying? So Halloween is my favorite holiday. My birthday is Nov 1st so I had combo Halloween/Birthday parties every year until I was about 10. August is when my search for all things Halloween begins in earnest. I have been digging through the web of the Internet daily, and I have finally found my first Halloween themed cosmetic items.    Please post any Halloween themed cosmetic items you run across. I'm hoping for some decent Sally Hansen Nail Effects nail stickers this year.

I was still standing in my foyer with my back to the door when the someone knocked very loudly and scared the beejubies out of me.  I literally jumped because I was just outside and did not see anyone. I picked up the package thinking it was for my hubs and I noticed Sephora on the label. I thought I was chosen for one of those Gratis reviews and got super excited!  Not the case, but.........    Sephora sent out gifts for chatting with Dry Bar and Bumble & Bumble.   I received the Dry Bar Bay Breeze 'FOUR' hydrating shots and super excited to try because I already had one in my cart to buy.  Bumble & Bumble included a .5 oz All-Style Blow Dry.  Happy to try as well.    Many of us are getting these! Excited to try the DB shot tonight and then will leave a review.  Thank you Sephora for this opportunity!!!

BT Temptation, How Do You Cope?
One of the main reasons I haven't stayed on as a regular on BT (I post a while then leave) is TEMPTATION!  I have some budget leeway and like to get new things fairly often but have settled into many things as my go-to items but seeing all the new and shiny on BT tempts me to spend more. So how do you all cope with that when the more hopping threads are mostly about the new and shiny? I'm seeking out some other threads this time, and want to participate in pan projects, photo threads and looks of the day type threads so I stick around and don't have to close off BT because I feel tempted to overspend. Don't get me wrong, I love-love the discussioms on all the newest items, there's no doubt my current collection is 10x better because of the great information everyone posts...but...I need to come to terms with the itchy buyer finger that wants to grab up the newest lippy or latest set! That way I will settle in to stick around this time.

Beauty Keepsakes & Mementos
Hi ladies! I wanted to start a thread to post about beauty items we may own that have sentimental value. Anything from perfume that reminds us of someone to a specific shade of lipstick, I want to hear the story behind it. For me, it's a Revlon cosmetic organizer that sits on my vanity. It belonged to my mom, who passed away when I was really young. It's nice to see it everyday and have it filled with pretty things just like she did.

How many Sephora stores have BTers visited?
Updated Sephora Store Role Call (8/16/15)   Edit 8/15/15: As you may have guessed, this quickly surpassed the character limit, so I transferred it over to a Google spreadsheet. I will try and leave the store list in this post for as long as possible. International stores are still a work in progress.   Spoiler (Highlight to read) docs dot google dot com/spreadsheets/d/1kB0kLu5Hm4ByFsHN8wlUdYjYXnReiS xy6ZkNJQLg1v4/edit?usp=sharing docs dot google dot com/spreadsheets/d/1kB0kLu5Hm4ByFsHN8wlUdYjYXnReiS xy6ZkNJQLg1v4/edit?usp=sharing   ***IMPORTANT: If you realize you forgot any locations that you'd like added, DO NOT edit/reply to your post, please use a SEPARATE POST using the text box below this post.***   ***Updated (?)... good god. I may or may not have drastically underestimated this project.***   ---------------------------- For the last few days I've been wondering how many different stores throughout the world that BTers have visited. So I wanted to compile a list of the stores, then add BTers names to it,or a * to indicate that it's been visited - whatever, not trying to get all NSA on everyone.   But (not?) surprisingly, it appears that it's not possible to simply locate a complete list of all stores, unless you want to pay for it from some agg data website.   So, for now, I pulled together a list of "all" the North American stores since that's where most of us are from. The site I found that lists them all out doesn't seem complete to me (rectifying...), so if a store you've been to isn't listed, please list it! Sorry about the lack of alphabeticalness (alphabeticality?), that's just how they were listed on the site.   If you've visited stores internationally, it would be very cool to see where people have been, and I would be happy to add international stores as people have visited them.   ***If you want, you can specify which of the stores you've visited you would consider your "home store(s)" to see who else happens to have the same one.***     Spoiler (Highlight to read) USA ALABAMA Birmingham Hoover Huntsville Mobile Prattville Spanish Fort ALASKA Anchorage ARIZONA Casa Grande Glendale Chandler Chandler (JCP) Gilbert Lake Havasu (JCP) Scottsdale Tempe Tucson Tuscon (JCP) Yuma ARKANSAS Fayetteville Fort Smith Little Rock Little Rock (JCP) Rogers CALIFORNIA Anaheim Antioch Arcadia Arcadia (JCP) Bakersfield Brea Burlingame Canoga Park Carlsbad Cerritos Chino Chula Vista Citrus Heights Costa Mesa Culver City Cupertino Daly City Downey El Cajon Emeryville Escondido Fairfield Fresno Fresno (JCP) Glendale Glendale (JCP) Hollywood Laguna Hills Lakewood Los Angeles, Beverly Center Los Angeles, Beverly Drive Los Angeles, Century City Manhattan Beach Manteca Mission Viejo Modesto Modesto (JCP) Montclair Montebello National City Northridge Northridge (JCP) Novato Palm Desert Palmdale Palo Alto/Stanford Pasadena Pleasanton Pleasanton (JCP) Rancho Cucamonga Rancho Cucamonga (JCP) Redlands Riverside Roseville Roseville (JCP) Sacramento Sacramento (JCP) Salinas San Bruno San Diego San Diego (JCP) San Francisco, Powell Street San Francisco, Stonestown San Francisco, Union Street San Francisco, Westfield San Jose San Jose (JCP) San Luis Obispo Santa Ana Santa Barbara Santa Clara Santa Monica Santa Rosa Sherman Oaks Stockton Temecula Thousand Oaks Thousand Oaks (JCP) Torrance Valencia Ventura Visalia Walnut Creek West Covina COLORADO Boulder Brighton Broomfield Colorado Springs Denver Denver (JCP) Fort Collins Littleton Montrose CONNECTICUT Danbury Fair Farmington Greenwich Trumbull Uncasville/Mohegan Sun DELAWARE Newark FLORIDA Aventura Aventura (JCP) Boca Raton Boyton Beach Brandon Brandon (JCP) Clearwater Clermont Coral Springs Davenport Destin Estero Ft.

Sephora Subscription Box - PLAY!
This is really exciting for all those Birchbox/Ipsy lovers. Sephora will begin its own subscription service!   I read an article today that states the following:   Sephora is already the place to go for samples. With testers for every product in the store, it's the perfect destination for trying a new shade without the commitment. And now, you can get those coveted samples right at your door. Womens Wear Daily reports that the beauty chain is testing out a subscription service to compete with companies like Birchbox and Ipsy. Play! By Sephora will start in Boston, Columbus, and Cincinnati this September, and expand next year. Each box will cost $10 a month and feature a collection of products, plus a few bonuses like Spotify playlists.    The first box (spoiler alert!) contains products from Marc Jacobs, Ole Henriksen, Bumble and bumble, Glamglow and Sephora's in-house brand. Each month will have a theme, like skincare or cosmetics, and each box will have a few bonus samples thrown in as well. Subscribers can also show up at any Sephora store to learn how to use the samples and will get access to exclusive events. The $10 price tag might end up being a great deal, especially if Sephora sticks with high-end products in the future. It's a drop in the bucket compared to the travel-size products that tempt us every time we hit the checkout line.

Things you love that most people seemingly don't
There is currently a thread about products/brands that are consistently bad.  I decided to start one on products you love that most people seemingly don't.  I have a bunch. I love the Too Faced heart blush in peach beach.  It got an F from Temptalia and is one of my favorite blushes.  I adore MAC nude lipglosses...which get almost universal hate.  I also like the Tarte Golden Days and Sultry Nights palette which I think has had its one year birthday on the Sephora sale page.  And I even like the Jennifer Anniston perfume...though I admit the wear time wasn't so great. What do you like/love despite the bad reviews (and no nail rings or glitter eye lashes unless you really must...please)!

2015 Beauty Resolutions
With 2014 drawing to a close, what resolutions (beauty related or not) have you set for 2015? For beauty related, I want to wear sunscreen on my hands everyday, drink more water, and work my retinol up to a higher concentration (hopefully prescription strength). As far as the other aspects of my life, I think that tackling my terrible tendency towards procrastination will be enough of a feat.

Makeup Pick Me Ups!
So after the Epic Rewards Fiasco, it's been kind of a gloomy atmosphere here on BT. Lots of people are pissed and with good reason, but I think it's time to remind ourselves of why we love makeup so much. I just saw a youtube video from emilynoel83, and she talks about small things that bring her pleasure when she's putting on makeup and I thought it would be a great thread on BT. Just small things that bring a nice feeling of satisfaction, if you know what I mean.   One of my favorites is when I close a product and it clicks shut. I love that. Or using a brush that I just cleaned.    I want to hear what makes you happy about makeup.

This exactly happened to me today!  I was doing a massive clean out and I discovered my Tarte holiday blush palette (last year's version) and Mary Lou Manizer.  I had to... see post
Your oldest cosmetic item!
i was just pondering to myself how long my cosmetics are likely to physically last me after a brief discussion on the 30 day blush challenge thread. i know with proper care your blushes and pressed powders can and will last a very long time, but my knowledge is based on my own experience of only three years.   Greenchili made a joke about blushes lasting up to fifteen years based on the rate they're being used up. It got me wondering how long others' makeup has actually lasted them.  What's your oldest cosmetic item?  Do you still use it or does it carry sentimental value?  My oldest makeup is my naked2 palette, too faced candlelight glow, and benefit fine one one sheer cheek colour and nars Pago pago.  These items are what remain from my first sephora shopping trip in 2011. I had no idea what to buy so the SA just walked me around and put stuff in my cart for me!  Lol!  They all seem fine still and look clean and new save for a little use.  I take very good care of my things and keep them at a constant temperature and sanitize them after use.   Lol, does fifteen years really happen?
