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
Was asked to post an updated thread. Let's continue the fun shall we? What are you wearing today? 1. nars sheer glow foundation, mont blanc 2. perricone md no bronzer bronzer 3. urban decay eyeshadow primer potion, original 4. too faced chocolate bar palette 5. benefit theyre real mascara 6. rimmel london stay matte powder, natural 7. benefit dallas 8. nars blush, sin 9. buxom full on lipstick, las vegas
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 !
I absolutely love the 21 days sale Ulta has twice a year. However, I find myself regretting NOT buying certain items as the become on sale that day due to trying to have some restraint. They make it very difficult for Platinun members with free shipping with no minimum, and lots of deals/stackable beauty breaks/coupons, etc... In particuliar, I regret not buying more Butter London polishes, and I shouldve bought a Stila lip gloss yesterday. I also highly regret not buying some Stila liners. I am also glad I traded for a Clarisonic brush head since there isnt one on sale this time... Anything you regret NOT buying or anything you wish you hadn't bought? Share ladies!
Anything ever happen that just instantly brightens up your day/week/month? Recently I've been going through a rough patch but this morning my mother handed me some money and told me she was sorry for the way she acted. I no longer have to sell my game systems to try and make some payments, at least minimum. If I pay minimum.. more money for makeup. Logic. >_> I will be able to buy some items that I've had my eye on! And make an exchange too while I'm at it. This is one huge load off my shoulders because I think if you don't make a payment in time you get charged for a late fee which would've just been bad.
I started this in Greenie's thread, but, people suggested to make a new thread for this, so here we are... So, Spring is finally here. Or... sort of.... ( But, that snow the other day has nothing to do with the bright yellow and pastel green I feel like wearing, right? ) Anyway, I was thinking we could do 30+ day challenge of Spring ( and Summer ) colors, just for fun, and the heck of it. Let's have some fun! If anyone feels like joining me, please do. If you don't want to do the challenge, please feel free to stop by just because, whenever and why ever you feel like to. Let's paint the BT with Spring colors, ladies and gents! P.S. It turned out I need to remove what's left of my "wisdom" asap... so.... I'll start the fun, and re-join you as soon as I can. But, you go ahead and have fun. I'll be watching, and live through you all! Day 1 - Maybelline Vivids in Shocking Coral Day 2 - NARS Audacious in Brigitte + NARS lip gloss in Priscilla Day 3 - MAC Candy Yum Yum
Just starting this new thread to keep us updated on all new collections, launches and releases for Summer; following up the Spring Collections thread you can check out here http://community.sephora.com/t5/Beauty-Confessions /Spring-2015-Collections/td-p/1825800 I’ll leave here what we already found for this upcoming summer season MAC Wash and Dry LE Spoiler (Highlight to read) Charlotte Tilbury x Norman Parkins Summer 2015 (found by lachaton) Guerlain Summer by Terracotta 2015 Fall Collections - http://community.sephora.com/t5/Beauty-Confessions /FALL-2015-COLLECTIONS/m-p/1927188#M95163
I'm really into natural organic skincare this year, so I have discovered a lot of great indie brands. Any brand you love, but less well-known to others? It can be skin care or make up. Here are some great brands I discovered: Pai Estelle & Thild Kimberly Sayer Lily Lolo What's yours?
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?!?!
I recently bought my first Guerlain lipstick - Rouge G in #78 Gladys. I knew the package was hefty, but never realized it would be this hefty. I love the colour, but to tell you the truth, the package is more than I bargained for (well, I didn't bargain at all. It costs bloody $53!). So I weighed 4 high end lipsticks to see how they fare: Dior Rouge - 32g (Feather weight) Chanel Rouge Allure - 36g (Welter weight) Tom Ford - 49g (Heavy Weight) Guerlain Rouge G - 83g (WAT?!) The cost of the lipsticks seem to be aligned with their weights too. Well, except the Guerlain....that is discounted to an inexpensive $53! :-D I like heavy lipsticks like TF and Hourglass, but Guerlain is just a bit too fussy. I am discouraged about exploring this line much more to be honest. What do you guys feel about good products that are unwieldy, too heavy, too large....does it matter?
I had to update my totals... So YTD as of 3/22 I have spent at Sephora $76 and at ULTA $492 and at department/brand stores about $800... Normally I would have spent a lot more at Sephora by now but TBH none of the rewards or perks have really made me want to buy anything from Sephora... Even with the flash 2 day, I still find myself going to ULTA or Macy's or the brands site because of the GWP incentives... I have spent so much money at Sephora the last couple of years and I think I am finally getting to a point where its few and far between because the perks just don't do anything for me anymore...
Does anyone on BT have this? What are your thoughts on it? I'm going to test it in my local Nordstrom tomorrow. They just got in 6. I like the powder gelee concept but not sure about the color and I'm not crazy about the packaging...but it seems to have been kind of popular because it's had a few online appearances and sold out right away. I know everyone is looking for something like last years Heat Wave and apparently the formula on this is similar but not the color or packaging. Trendmood1 on IA had a nice review and swatch. Thoughts?
For those of us that love lipsticks and have several of them, do you rotate or reach for the same few? I wear some more than others. And some have been neglected a lot (although they are very pretty). I thought of holding myself to wearing a new lipstick everyday for 30 days. Lets see how long this will last. If I last 30 days, maybe I will go longer. Ha...lets see if I last 2 weeks. Anybody else? I am quite excited about it....

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's.com 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 Barneys.com 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. 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! Here are some pics of previous Love Yourself February Bags : (2012 and 2014)
My OCD started kicking after meganlisa suggested the creation of the Summer thread so why not have a Fall one already just to keep ourselves organized? Here we go Burberry and Dior Fall 2015 (Found by Rhiannon1419) Spring Collections - http://community.sephora.com/t5/Beauty-Confessions /Spring-2015-Collections/td-p/1825800 Summer Collections - http://community.sephora.com/t5/Beauty-Confessions /SUMMER-2015-COLLECTIONS/td-p/1927119
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!!
You know how sometimes you see something you REALLY REALLY WANT, or fell in love at first sight, but does not have the fund or justification for getting them due to price/your stash no matter how much you tried? or it was released 5yrs before you wanted and not available anywhere? Do you have anything like that and what are they? Sulwhasoo is another Asian brand that have recently reached popularity in US, but while browsing their skincare line, I stumbled upon their powders and HOLY MOLY! Look at this packaging! That's from Bergdorf Goodman for $150. I've got 3 compact and 4 jars of meteorites so I absolutely cannot justify it. But at least you can buy it if you want to, I don't even know where to buy this one: That is up on their brand website. Another pretty that I would totally get if available but unfortunately is not is the Dior Lace powder compact: Image curtesy of Beautylish. There's another absolutely stunning, ridiculously intricate/gorgeous Chanel eyeshadow compact that I saved an image of but can't find right now, will share eye candy later. But anyways, what is your dream beauty purchase?
I thought it'd be fun to create a thread where we share our 'mask faces'! I'd love to see how lovely & silly you all look with masks on It'd be great if you mention the name of the mask you are using as well! I'll start things off! Tonight I am using the Lush Magnaminty mask
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 blushes...im such a scaredy cat when it comes to putting on bold blushes.
As 2014 comes to a close, I have resolved to actually use my samples in 2015. I've seen some other ladies make similar statements on here as well. So... I've established "Sample Saturday". Every Saturday I plan to pick a sample (or two) and use it! I thought this would be a fun way for me to use my sample stash and I wanted a way to record my thoughts so I thought I'd start a thread. If you want to play along, grab a sample and let's get going! I thought we could post what product we are trying and our first impressions, adding follow up information when necessary. Tonight I am trying: * Phyto Tous Cheveux Secret De Nuit; Intense Hydration Regenerating Night Cream First impression: It's not heavy or greasy, as I thought it would be. I applied it to towel-dried hair after I got out of the shower. I like that it's not heavy but so far I don't feel like it's moisturizing my hair at all. I applied extra to the ends of my hair as they are very dry and damaged (I need a haircut). We shall see how my hair feels in the morning! * Stella Body Lotion (from the delight promo) First impression: This lotion smells lovely but it's really watery and I don't feel like it moisturizes my skin at all. I prefer heavy lotions and wear primarily body butters. It smells amazing and is by far my best smelling lotion, it's just too watery and lightweight for me. I will, however, continue to use it because it smells so *$#^ delicious! =0) We'll see if my skin feels moisturized in the morning.
Today as I am looking through the orders that are on the way to me I noticed that I ordered 2 more of the same product. One I have already (GA Brow Maestro-ordered same color, wanted to order a different one). And I placed two different orders for Glamglow Thirstycleanse! What a dumbo! Now both those orders will have to be returned...ugh! I just can't believe I did this considering I was checking and rechecking my orders. And yes...I ordered them all from Sephora! Go ahead laugh and tell me what I already know,...I am indeed an addict and a goofy one at that. I'm blaming it on the weather since I think it's causing more confusion than usual! Ok that and a serious lack of sleep...zzzzzzz (I wish!)
i have a secret love of watching vintage beauty ads, but i just came across these tutorials and i had to share. i can't get enough. i love how some advice is clearly very dated, and some is undeniably timeless ! 1930s 1940s 1950s (i'm having trouble finding a proper 50s one) 1960s
If all your beauty products disappeared for some reason, which are the 5 items that you would repurchase first without any doubt ? In other words, these items would very likely be your holy grail products which you couldn't live without in your makeup collection. (If you can, try to list the products in order, having the most important item as your first time on your list) 1. Lip product: Fresh lip balm! It can be used as a lipbalm and can also give your lips color! 2. Mascara: ROLLER LASH! This is what make my eyes pop and open up. 3. A creamy concealer! Nars creamy concealer or the MUFE full cover concealer. It covers up the imperfections on my skin. 4. A palette! I This palette must be a holy grail that I could use for my eyes, nose (contouring), brows, and even my cheek! Then this could save me from having a few less items out of the 5. 5. Last but not least, I have to give my last item to my chloe love story perfume (or MJ daisy dream)! I love to smell great and fresh all day, cos the perfume I sprayed on could definitely affect the mood I am in that day Thank goodness my makeup hasn’t disappeared, since it would be super hard and to choose only 5 items! I find this question really challenging (but fun at the same time) when I was asked by my cousins and friends who came to visit me. They were shocked by all the beauty products I have in my room. I know 5 products aren't enough, but I wanted to know what products would be on list of the others. Let me know what your list would be like. I am really interested in knowing what would be the few items that all you lovelies couldn't live without
So I've been thinking lately, I spend so much money on high end beauty products and need to draw the line somewhere. Case and point I love body washes and creams but do I really need to spend so much money on those things? Prior to a couple of years ago, Olay was working just fine. So while in Target a few weeks ago I noticed the suave naturals line of body products and was curious given it's claims "clinically proven..." the same as this brand or same ingredients, etc. So I bought the one comparable to Origins body wash and I'm so surprised that it actually leaves my skin soft and moisturized. Next I bought the lotion comparable to Moroccan oil and it's one of the best lotions that actually leaves my skin smooth, moisturized, and soft until I shower again. What drugstore, cheap, or often dismissed brand surprised you lately with better than expected quality?
Whether it’s blue eye shadow, sharpie brows or experimental beauty looks gone wrong, we all have beauty mistakes or regrets. I was looking back at some pictures from a few years ago and I found myself staring at my barely there eyebrows. I over plucked them, they were super thin and I didn’t even care to fill them in, lol! Lemme just show you my biggest regrets, in no particular order, these all make me cringe and want to go back in time. Super thin brows Spoiler (Highlight to read) Red eye shadow (I don’t regret using the color but the fact that I didn’t know how to wear it properly, this is from 2008, I was in HS) Spoiler (Highlight to read) Not taking care of my skin during High School (forever thankful to my mother for taking me to a dermatologist, I can tell you laser is worth it! - College Freshman, 2010) Spoiler (Highlight to read) Now this pictures are a forever reminder of what not to do What’s your biggest beauty regret or mistake? -Yackie
So once I finally released my Nars face products were causing me to break out, I had to throw them all away. All of my blushes, my bronzer and highlighter. On the bright side, I finally truly released what type of products were causing me issues and purged them as well. This was years ago, but does can anyone else relate to my story?
I searched around and saw storage but not many vanities. I just got my vanity in today, I'm probably going to get a chest to store everything else, because these drawers are small! They also don't open all the way. This is my set up for now. Whats your set up like?
