Ho Ho Holidays 2015!
Ok, forgive me, I know it is only June!  Is anyone else already thinking of wonderful things to come? I have visions of Limited editions, special sets and palettes dancing in my head! I can't wait to see what gift sets, gifts with purchase, and Sephora Favorites are coming our way! Black Friday deals and specials that we can't wait to get our hands on!!   Lets share some of our favorites from the past and wishes for the future, and them post pics as we get closer and start finding out what we have to get for the holidays!

Likewise. Spectrum is exactly what of was looking for in a palette. I don't have a lot of colors outside the brown/taupe range so this will be perfect. see post

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.

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.

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!!!

Barneys vs Space NK (vs Bluemercury) early September GWPs comparison
I saw that there were 3 big GWPs happening in early September that may be comparable, so i tried to do just that (that is, comparing.)

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 !

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

something goes missing, you repurchase, then....
So my Tweezerman set went missing a few days ago. I searched high and low and could not find it anywhere!! I even asked my mom if she had borrowed it or had seen it anywhere. She hadn't. It was the set with the two mini zebra-etched tweezers in the pretty silver zebra case.   I had to go downtown today so I stopped at Sephora and bought a full-size Tweezerman brow tweezer. I haven't even been home for half an hour and I found my old set underneath all my mom's crap in the bathroom!!!!   I just can't even. I'll be testing out the new tweezer to see whether it's worth keeping or not since I already opened it....   Anyone ever buy a replacement just to find the missing item the second you get home??

sorry guys, i don't have the wits right now to come up with a more clever title. but wanna talk about your favorites this past month ?   as some of you know, august was a DIFFICULT month for moi. a serious breakup, a death in the family. TURNING 30. but...this all corresponded with me using makeup as a coping mechanism, so i have lots of new faves !   maybelline color tattoo pots. these things DO NOT BUDGE. they're all i wore for the first half of the month. with bad to the bronze, tough as taupe and creamy beige all being in rotation. anything that contributed toward my copper / rusty eye fixation that took over the second half of the month. MAC mythology, KVD raw power, UD freelove , and extra shoutout to MUFE artist shadow in the matte auburn shade (which is my new very favorite !! i can look up the mufe code style name if anyone is interested....) the month was a tale of 3 blushes , all from NARS : the first half of the month was dominated by sex appeal . the second half of the month i used exhibit a almost every day as a transition shade on my eyes. and the unsuspecting reigning queen: mata hari . with the warm tones on the eyes and the cooler tones on my lips, this proved to be the perfect glowy bridge between the two. not too warm, not too cool. perfect. (also wore mata hari as an eyeshadow recently and loved it. now i need to find a single shadow in a similar color, if any of your guys know of one to recommend ??) COLOURPOP ultra matte liquid lipsticks in trap and kapow (with kapow being my new favorite ever). i don't know how long this 'greige' thing will hang around and still look remotely fresh, but i am just really feeling it. DIPTYQUE vanille candle . this is extraordinary (the accompanying duelle eau de toilette is extraordinary too, though i only have a sample of that atm). it's a warm sweetness with no sugary overwhelmingness. favorite diptyque candle i've ever experienced. i don't have any skincare favorites this month because i've been pretty loyal to my usual cast. but i do have a couple of non beauty things to mention:   iphone game ' neko atsume '. it's such a simple game (that is entirely in japanese but don't let that deter you) where you collect cats by setting up a space for them to come and visit. i've found it to be very soothing, zen, and good for my anxiety. my brother told me i need to watch ' new girl ' so i've been binge watching that and am thoroughly enjoying it.    alright, how about you ? anything you'd like to shout from the rooftops ?

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!

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.

Oooh! Thanks!!! Looks like I'll be putting in an order soon. lol. see post
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!!

What do you think of the new Chelsea Girls gloss?  I am happy it's back but haven't tried the new formula.  Not sure if it's new or just repackaged. see post
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.

Harry Potter lipsticks, OMG
Okay, so I'm an enormous Harry Potter dork (I have a quote from Dumbledore tattooed on my back ), and I found out about these from BuzzFeed.  LASplash has a line of liquid lipsticks named after HP characters and other things (e.g. Charmed, Hermione, etc) and I think I need them all because THEY ARE HARRY POTTER LIPSTICKS.  If you wanna check them out, head to their website and look at the Smitten Liptint Mousse.    Aghhhhhh neeeeeeeddddd!  ;_;

I found that they are a few dollars cheaper on RickysNYC vs. the LASplash direct site. Plus free shipping @ $50:) see post
How often do you check your makeup at work or elsewhere?
Ladies, I had a horrendous awakening today. I've had a pretty stressful week back to work and my face is showing it. I left for work at 6:30 this morning with unfinished business on my chin, not toooooo front and center, but there nevertheless.  I told myself to please get to work, and attend to it there.  Well, I never did.  In addition, the air conditioning where I work isn't all that efficient, and I'm having what I thought was decent second day hair.  I didn't really check all day, but for a quick swipe in the mirror in passing in the restroom bc that's all I have time for.  I got home and did an assessment and was horrified that I would be in front of people the way I did.    This led me to wonder, how often others check themselves in the mirror?  I just don't have the time to check, but I do care.  When not at work, I am constantly checking my face/makeup/butt/unameit in the mirror, but not at work.  Ugggg.  Even when I get downtime and I jump on the Internet (ie. BT) I don't check as much as I should.   I spare you the horrifics describing what I saw in the mirror today, as I am not looking for compliments or any reassurances, I have much self-esteem which is not to say, conceited.  I don't want this to be a bashing, just wondering how much I should care at work necessarily.    I searched for this topic, didn't find any...let me know if its repetitive.    Do share!

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.
