Appreciations
So, one of the things I like best about BT is our capacity for kindness and positivity.  I know that whenever I have a question someone is going to take time out of their busy day to answer it and that is great.   I thought maybe it would be nice to start a thread where people post appreciations for other.  Like if someone recommended a product that became an HG product for you or if a thread made you smile you could post here to appreciate them.  I think it would be a great way to celebrate our community.  One note: I know that sometimes things like this feel like popularity contests, and if people are anxious about that happening here I will definitely take the thread down because that is not my intention at all.  If this becomes a popularity drama festival it will not stay up.   But back to positive!  I vow to post once a day about something someone did that I appreciate and I challenge everyone to participate at least once. Appreciating people feels good!  I'm gonna post my first appreciations as a comment rather than in this post.  Yay appreciating people!

.Show us your unicorns!!!!
with all the limited edition items that are released and the shark frenzies that follow, I'm interested in seeing what items my fellow BTers have snagged over the years that are now those coveted hard to find unicorns.  Those beautiful things we wanted but missed out on.   Basically, I want to see pictures of those Beauties I cannot have, just like I wznna see pictures of those hunky men in harlequin romance novels I can never have.   Running to grab a box of tissues and some popcorn!   Oh and as a sneak preview, here's my first self-deemed unicorn.  This picture is from the Omotesando cosmetic boutique.  The blusher in the middle is the real unicorn.  It was only available at this one store location to celebrate its opening.  I went in to snag one for someone else and they were sold out.  See the sold out sticker?   They sold out in a week and STILL had the darn set on display one month later!!!  Why????

Would you consider this palette hoarding?
I was at a friends last night and we ended up watching episode after episode of hoarders which was shocking and frightening at the same time.  Today I read a comment asking to see my makeup collection so I pulled out my palettes out of their respective drawers for a photo and realized I have more than I thought. Also I realized how anxious I was about my hubby coming up and seeing how many I own. needless to say, they went back very quickly!  I'm wondering if this is too many or if I'm just sitting pretty. I do use them all save for the nars ones.  how many palettes do you own? do you use them all?

LUV TB: Lost Unicorn for VIBRouge Traveling Box
--closed-- Box of awesome high end items and unicorns, show me yours and I'll show you mine, lol. While I’m not “ancient”, I’ve been on BeautyTalk WAY longer than I ever expected and have made some very good friends….as well as been enabled into getting WAY more makeup, lol. It is getting a bit overwhelming and as much as I like pretty things, my style is more minimalist, so I don’t reaaally need 6 or 7 jars of Guerlain meteorites etc. To help revamp/reorganize my stash as well as having some fun with the awesome friends I’ve made, I’m doing the LUV TB.    It contains lots of makeup that I love but never use, altho I couldn’t bear to part with any perfumes or majority of the skincare, so you ladies will have to make up for it along the way. Keep it classy, with high end and preferably new or lightly used things. No drugstores. Since it’s got tons of expensive items, I asked people I trust who are interested, so the box is closed. If it goes well, I may do another one next year when I've accumulated enough treasures. =P   Expand below to see the rules, taken from the awesome roxystar4 and slightly simplified:   Spoiler (Highlight to read) * Please make sure every item is in a plastic ziplock bag to prevent spills.

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 ?

Your longest tenured product?
In a market flooded with options, what has lasted the test of time? Bonus points if it's still your favorite/go-to/HG product.    For me, I think it's Aveda Hand Relief. Either that or their Lip Saver. Still my favorite colorless, hydrating, nourishing balm. Both are going strong in the 15 year range.

Makeup you rarely use
Are there any types of makeup you just don't like? I don't mean a particular brand, but just an entire type. For example, I stopped buying lipstick when I realized that I almost never choose to wear it. I love stains and balms and glosses, but lip color in stick form is just not my thing.   Another thing I don't wear too often is powder blush. I wear blush nearly every day, but it's usually a cheek stain, because I think cheek stains both look and feel better on my dry skin.   So do you all have any quirky dislikes like I do?

Peach Fuzz-Yes I read through old threads, but still have questions
Ok, let me start off by saying PLEASE don't tell me not to, etc.   For the past 6 months (yes 6), I have been researching peach fuzz, vellus hair to terminal hair, effective treatments, etc. I have read 99% of the  informed  ( I say informed because ones against it merely stated they never actually tried it, but it would do this and that to your hair and blah blah) say they shave with a tinkle razor in downward short strokes.    Just out of curiosity, what women here shave the peach fuzz on cheeks and what was your personal experience? How long do you go between each shaving? Also, I read how amazing this is for exfoliating. I'm curious about that too.

How Far Away Are You from 2015 Rouge?
Okay.   I really didn't want to try to make Rouge level again for 2015 .  It was nice to see the Rouge promos (which I think have been very nice lately) and attend the events (not as fancy as other people's experiences because I haven't seen brand reps or the fancy treats at my stores), but the Rouge level experience still seems to be rather lacking.  However, I do love the products Sephora sells and I love giving them away for gifts.  So now I'm $13 away from making Rouge again.  (Sigh)   I'm still buying gifts and I know they'll still have a bunch of items and sales come before Christmas, sooooo  . . . I guess I'll be Rouge again for 2015.  LOL   What about you?

Julep now allows you to skip multiple months again... you don't have to be "grandfathered" in any longer to utilize this. And you can skip more than one every 6 months, like it was for the past year.    So... for those who were considering Julep subs but didn't want to commit to getting a box EVERY month... good news!

As the temperature drops, my skin is getting drier and I really need to focus on exfoliating and moisturizing. I'm curious about the routines everyone has for taking care of the skin they're in.

Is There Anything You Wished You Could Change In Your Appearance?
Beauties,      I know we're a community of self acceptance and loving yourself just the way you are, but I'm curious, is there anything about your appearance you wish could be different?   To start us off, I'll tell you mine.     Though I am completely comfortable/happy with myself, when I was younger my closest girlfriend was ginger, and I lusted after having pale skin, freckles and auburn hair just like her.  I did rock various red hair colors for many years, but never found one that suited me and have given up on that for now.     These days, I mostly just wish I could be taller.  I'm pushing 5'4 and my husband is 6'4 and I would love to be a bit closer to his size.  On my off time I wear giant heels to compensate.  And if we're wishing for things, I'd love to have b**bs the size I had when I was 40lbs heavier, lol.   What about you?

Brands & Products You Love but Don't Have ?
i intend for this thread to be both a bit of a 'release' (such as "i want everyone to know i love *this* even though my hauls, looks, etc don't reflect it !")   but i also intend it to be a kind of ongoing list we can reference for the (or any) sale, for general shopping, and as inspiration of new things to try.   for example: i love REN. but my skincare collection does not reflect my love for them. my shopping cart is full of parts of their v-cense line and ren rosa centifolia balm, but i never pull the trigger (i've had some of these things but are sometimes pricey for me to replace once i run out, or i try new things, etc). same with NUDE and ALGENIST. some KATE SOMERVILLE too (goats milk cream, anyone?) !   i love NARS pure matte lipsticks but instead of restocking i went for the audacious lipsticks. which we all know i love, but they're just *different*.    edited to add: BECCA products like the shimmering skin perfector (liquid form) in pearl, and their eye tints intrigue me for those no makeup makeup looks.  NARS light reflecting loose setting powder.   what about you ?

The sands of time are ever passing, and as they do, sometimes the looks that were prolific or popular at the time become horrifying in hindsight.   Whether you rocked frosted hair in the 70's, powder blue eyeshadow in the 80's, or brick brown lipstick in the 90's, or anywhere between or beyond, what makeup look do you look back on now and cringe over?   To get the ball rolling, I will offer up my own horror story.     I was raised by my dad, so I didn't really have many women around to teach me about makeup.  In middle school I used to drastically over tweeze my eyebrows for that Sailor Moon look.  I had grad and confirmation coming up and had to get pictures taken, so I decided it would be a good idea to draw my eyebrows in for the pictures.  I didn't know any better, so I colored  them in  with a black eyeliner .  Every time I see those pictures, it looks like someone came along with a sharpie and just wiped it across my face.  Also, I didn't understand arching, so they are literally two stick straight lines on my face.   If I can dig it up, I will post a pic for all to see and have a good laugh over.     Now it's your turn... what was your greatest makeup blunder?
