What if your Best Beauty find of 2014!?
 (apparently I can not spell today..) This year has been very purchase heavy for me, some of the things were great, others not so much. So since the year is almost over lets do a round up on "What was your THE best beauty(skincare, clothing, etc.) find/discovery of the year?".   IF you had BIG misses and no so great finds - go ahead and share them too!    My great discoveries were: - Chanel Aqua Vitalumiere - after being on a hunt for a good foundation, and then while in Nordies stumbling on Chanel counter and lovely associate helping me out with a perfect shade match and coverage - I fell in love with this one!!! - Skincare wise I think Algenist was my discovery - they have such a great skin care line, I love their firming cream and oil!! - After such a craze about Bite beauty , and finally my local stores having the items on display, I caved and decided to see what they were about  - now I am a proud owner of about 10 of their lip products - Then I just have to mention finding the GLAMGLOW masks at my fave TJMAxx - that was an amazing deal!!!

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?!?!

While I was shopping
So I know a lot of people just want to vent out their shopping experiences at makeup stores and such. Sometimes you have a funny or an infuriating tale to tell, but you hesitate to post because it might be on a thread of "Oh hey, skincare."    So let's start fresh and post our crazy experiences here, thanks to heartsmyface for giving me the idea!    I'll start with what happened today at Ulta.   I got a 20 percent discount coupon, this was my second time coming back because I was still on the fence on what to buy. Unfortunately what I really wanted wasn't there (Benfit's set of tints and balms).  I decided to go for bareminerals kit which has a lot of stuff in there AND for the first time ever, eyelashes.   I was at the line and I told the lady that was checking me out if I could go switch the box I had because I was a bit unsure about the color.. she told me "Oh yeah, this definitely looks like the wrong color." Keep in mind I had medium which is my skin tone and well, bareminerals is a bit confusing with their stuff, especially for a newbie to the brand. I asked her what she thought I should get and she suggested a tannish one.. Um. I'm not the fairest in the land, but I know my skin tone isn't cocoa, I don't know if she misunderstood me or what but I was definitely like "Oh... yeah, nevermind, I'll just take this one."    So she charged me, I handed her a 100 dollar bill, she gave me the receipt and went to go answer the phone, I don't know if they should do that but I do find it a bit rude. She came back and asked me "Oh, was there anything else you needed?" And I said "Yeah, my money back."  And believe it or not, she had forgotten. In that one minute she was away, she forgot that she in fact did not give me my 61 dollars and four cents back. LOL. She did apologize, but .. due to this, I don't think I want to go back there again. Also, Ulta staff is never friendly, one time a girl worker was being obnoxious because of my Jeffrey Campbell boots, and now when she sees me it's like she's seeing Satan.

The day I couldn't find anything to buy at Sephora....
So I am "one lipstick" away from Rouge, and I need a lipliner anyway, so I headed to Sephora rather than going to MAC.  Then I figured if I was spending $20ish on a liner, I may as well get a lipstick.  I must have swatched every berry lipstick in the store.   And I left...with nothing... The colors were too red, too pink, too bright, too dark.   Could not find my perfect color.  I really don't have THAT much makeup that I can't find anything to buy?  I have a small stash compared to many of you.  But I have everything I need/want.

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.

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.

November, 2014 Favorites
Hey everyone, I love a good favorites video! I watch them every month looking forward to seeing what folks love. What are some of your favorites from November? Here are mine:    1. Burberry Oxblood lip mist - I love the color of this, but the actual formula is amazing! It goes on so smoothly and gives wonderful coverage in one swipe. It's a must have for me now!  2. Charlotte Tilbury Blusher in Sex on Fire - this was a gift and I love it. It has a duo circle in it, so you get a varying color when you swipe both together. It brightens up my face and is so soft! I love it!  3. KGD Spa Wate r- A lovely BT'er told me about this when my face started freaking out due to an oil cleanser I was using to remove makeup. I'm a convert! I love this stuff. It gently removes makeup and doesn't irritate my skin at all!  4.  Shisheido Cotton-  Decided to try it off a recommendation and it's SO MUCH BETTER than regular cotton rounds. They are so soft and don't break up in my hand! They are amazing.

Most used products and the ones we always repurchase!
I am sure we all have some products that we use the most and then we "run" to Sephora (or other stores) to repurchase and stock up on it, with a thought - "Just in case or I am about to finish up my other one, so I might as well pick up a back up now... etc" .    What are your most used products, the ones you know you'll go and repurchase no matter what?    Mine are: - Anastasia Brow Wiz -  ohh boy - this is one of my little fave things that I use the most and I buy few of them a year, just because I use it so often. - Nars Creamy Consealer - does its job, so smooth and gives me the coverage I need! - When Travelmate face masque <3 - so amazing, portable, and  travel safe/mess free!!

Top five products of 2015
EDIT: of 2014.....oops...   If you could summarize your entire beauty year in just five products what would they be?   Mine are: 1. Kevyn Aucoin 'The Sensual Skin Fluid' - My HG foundation. It's super light, medium coverage, long wearing (I mean 10+ hours on my combo skin), and has a satin super skin like finish. The only downside is it's $97/oz. 2. Illamasqua Cream Blushers (Dixie/Zygomatic/Rude) - They are pigmented, dewy, and blend better than any other cream blush I've tried.  3. Marc Jacobs No.14 'The Conceal' Brush - I love it and refuse to use any other concealer brush. It just blends concealer out soooooo smoothly and evenly.  4. Hourglass Ambient Lighting Palette - It is perfection - enough said.  5. Paula's Choice Clinical 1% Retinol Treatment - After I got over the hump of redness, peeling, and inflammation, my skin is so much smoother and I get far fewer breakouts. It also made my skin more tolerant to higher potency formulas - I can use twice as much of my SkinCeuticals CE Ferulic Serum.    http://www.sephora.com/the-conceal-full-cover-corr ecting-brush-14-P384921?skuId=1581776 http://www.sephora.com/ambient-lighting-palette-P3 82309?skuId=1606086

Negativity and hypocrisy in the makeup world
I have to vent.  I know there's been a lot of push back against heavily filled in, faded brows and contouring lately.  While I personally don't wear that much makeup, I think it's so hypocritical for people who wear makeup at all to judge other fellow makeup users for how they choose to do their makeup.  There's no right or wrong.  It's not math or science.  It's an art and a preference.  I bet if someone came up to these "natural makeup" people and told them they shouldn't wear any makeup at all they'd tell that person to mind their own business and that they can do whatever they want with their face.  Though I don't personally like all the makeup styles out there, I find it more repulsive when someone tells another person they shouldn't be wearing their makeup a certain way.  Who the hell cares if someone wants to have ultra filled in brows or contour with a very red toned bronzer? Maybe they like that look.  Not everyone is going for natural.  Some people like goth makeup.  Some people like glam makeup.  Some people like green blush and orange lips.  Who the *** cares. It's presumptuous of people to think that everyone wants makeup to be natural and therefore it's their duty to correct someone who  they think "doesn't know" that they are doing it "wrong."

Too much too faced!!!!😳
So I just received the semi-sweet chocolate palette and really like it. However as I'm staring at the first one vs the second I'm finally ready to admit I have a problem. Besides these palettes, I also have the A few of my Favorite Things palette, the boudoir palette, natural eye, and romantic eye palettes!!!! I rarely if ever touch those and cocoa chili looks a whole lot like cocoa puff in one of those palettes.  I am ready to admit I have a problem and will not buy anymore eye shadow!!!!

Essentials on the Cheap -- when you love luxury...
I had a beauty regimen that cost upwards of $250-300 a month.  While I could stomach it -- I'd rather not, so I went on the prowl for some less expensive alternatives.  This is what I've changed up so far to see how to get the same results on the cheap.  More to come as I explore other aspects of my regimen.  -- Julalle   Start with the basics:    Nightly Exfoliation:  BareMinerals Radiance Pads $36 for 60 pads (which Sephora doesn't sell anymore).  They worked great and were the cornerstone to my entire nightly routine because they exfoliated and boosted the other treatments.     Alternate: First Aid Beauty Radiance Pads $30 for 60 pads. They are almost as effective as the Bareminerals version, alcohol-free and $6 cheaper.  To save more money-- I only use them at nighttime.   https://www.sephora.com/facial-radiance-pads-P2783 17?skuId=1309608   Cleanser:  Any other cleanser.  Honestly, any.     Alternate:    Josie Maran Argan Oil Face Cleanser 2oz. bottle.  The 2oz is easy to manage, and you don't waste any of the product (unlike her 6oz bottle), and if you use just enough -- that 2 oz bottle that costs about $12 and will last 2 months!  It's the only cleanser that has helped even out my skin moisture and it keeps things simple and clean.    http://www.sephora.com/argan-cleansing-oil-P283501 ?skuId=1550904   Luxury Eye Treatments:  Perricone MD Acyl-Glutathione Eye Lid Serum costs $115 per 1/2 oz bottle.  I have puffy eyes and I am starting to age.  This product works! While one bottle can last 3 months -- it's still $115.     Alternate:  Ole Henriksen Ultimate Lift Eye Gel $42 for 1 oz.  This does a decent job of managing overall puffiness overnight (and I definitely see a difference when I don't use it).  I would not call it a complete replacement for Perricone, so I am still on the look out, but it works well enough to finish the bottle.  http://www.sephora.com/ultimate-lift-eye-gel-tm-P3 87216?skuId=1630409   Coming up next post -- Foundation --  Guerlain Terracotta Skin Healthy Glow Foundation ($53) versus Perfekt Primer+ ($48) versus Alternate?    Lipstick  Yves Saint Laurent   ROUGE PUR COUTURE  Vernis À Lèvres Glossy Stain ($35) versus  Too Faced   Melted Liquified Long Wear Lipstick ($21)

I heart Cetaphil..whenever I've overdone my skin and it's screaming at me whether it's too much sun, to many products, etc. I always use my Cetaphil.    OT:  I was bit... see post

REGRETS - NOT BUYING
So we all have heard the usual regrets of buying a product. But the real question is, what do you regret NOT buying? Whether it's limited edition or it just sold out - what do you wish you could rewind time and have taken your chances of buying a product? Makeup, clothing, cars, whatever!   Mine would be the Tom Ford Nude Dip, I thought it was extremely expensive, but after look seeing it again after months, checking online and seeing it sold out + being a seasonal product made me totally regret not buying it when I had the chance!
