Ulta 21 days- regrets
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!

Is your lipstick worth its weight in gold?
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'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?

30+ Days Of Spring Colors ( Lippie Challenge... Or Just Good Ol' Fun )
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

Estee Lauder Bronze Goddess Illuminating Powder Gelee 2015-who has it?
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?

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 blushes...im such a scaredy cat when it comes to putting on bold blushes.

What are the beauty products you can't live without?
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

Feelgood Days
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.

Favorite cheapies that work!!
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?

Be honest... How much have you spent YTD at Sephora Vs. Ulta
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...

Beauty mistakes and regrets, let's talk about them!
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

Am I the only one where how the item is packaged is extremely important?
I am disabled and it if I can't open an item it is extremely frustrating to me. I know that I can put it in a different type of packaging or perhaps depot an item but that can create problems of its own. I know  which products work best for me after much trial and error and after some throwaways/returns. I know that many of you aren't disabled but if you can't open an item quickly do you experience the same frustration?

What is your dream beauty purchase?
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?

Limited Edition 2015 Madness….discuss and share here!
So lately, I've been a little crazy about Limited Editions. For example, I am really sad about not getting a hold of this Givenchy Confetti powder. I really want to be in on the next 'must have'…anyone have ideas/predictions of what will be the hottest limited editions coming up?   Historically, which limited editions have been those that sold out and became collector's items? I think my collection is getting to the point where I want to start adding those special pieces and be ready for them.  I think there was talk about the Estee Lauder Courreges Highlighter powder being an update of the Heat Wave, it's on pre-order on EL.com and quickly went out of stock on Sephora.

Confessions of a shopaholic...
  So today while at the dentist office with my hubby, I saw on the news about the priest David who is accepting confessions on snapchat while I am no where near that point of desperation to contact said priest... I figured I'd dish out my dirty little secret here to the BT world...   Every once in a while maybe twice a year I get this uncontrollable urge to spend, its like I'm a crack addict and I need to score some good deals... This week long binge started when I was sick for a few days and I started doing some "online browsing"... which soon turned into "Ooppps now I'm shopping". Now mind you I am very frugal (except when it comes to makeup) I even have my budget made through the end of 2015, and I am usually pretty good at staying within my set limits... but when I get this itch to spend I can't control it!!! Now don't rush to conclusions and think I am putting myself in debt or anything, I would never spend more than I have.... And luckily my husband doesn't mind when I treat my self because it doesn't happen often (if it happened more than 2x a year he'd definitely rethink his "cheaper to keep her" mentality)   So here I am at what I believe to be the end of this week long binge of online shopping, and feeling somewhat hung over, definitely not any buyers remorse, but not as much excitement as I had when I was shopping (maybe because none of my boxes have yet been delivered by drug dealer UPS- and yes I have been faithfully tracking my shipments)...  I'm desperately awaiting all my shipments and I hope to receive them before I go on my cruise on the 14th!!!   So what better way to end my confession than to share the items I acquired on my week long binge... I honestly think I was pretty frugal buying some used items rather than paying retail for some... I also used ebates or shopathome, promo codes and some gift cards when applicable... I also bought a membership to ilovethisdiet and purchased some new meal prep containers on amazon... since I plan to start eating better once I get back from the cruise and tbh I probably gained 5 lbs on my week long binge...   Amazon- the lights and stuff is for a vanity mirror project I will be working on will post pics when complete Ebay   Sephora       Ulta Mac   Macys   Exchange   Tradesy

FAB FEB FAVORITES ?
i can't believe it's already march ! i love discussing monthly favorites because the positivity and enthusiasm just cheers me up.   for me, hmmm:   SKINCARE NUDE omega jelly cleanser. i declared it HG status back in late 2014, but feburary i rekindled and reaffirmed my love for it (check the skincare HG thread if you're interested in why ) TATA HARPER replenishing nutrient complex. a facial oil, i got this mid-january, but did not use it much until feb. i love it. it makes my skin happy. it absorbs well and smells divine. skin feels fed (particularly when used in conjunction with the nude cleanser) NUDE miracle mask. i got this as a gift for xmas (yay !) but was hardly able to use it until february as well. i am really enjoying it. it reminds me of the amazing REN glycol lactic mask, even though the nude one does not contain lactic acid (ah, if only it did...) in terms of consistency. it's very gentle and effective so i'd be very confident in recommending this to people wanting to try out AHA masks..... MAKEUP LAURA MERCIER caviar eye sticks.....and cream shadows in general. i've had these since december but only realllly fell in love with them the second half of feb. i love cream shadows because they're easy, they set (when well formulated, and, i've found, not layered on  too  thick) and while you can layer them for a multi tonal effect, i don't find it necessary. single shades are multi-dimensional enough to really create a beautiful effect while blended out....and i actually prefer 1-2 colors only on my lids, so these are perfect . i can't wait to explore the world of cream shadows even more NARS semi-matte lipstick in catfight. picked this up and it was instant love. their semi-matte lipsticks are just a wonderful formulation and i'd recommend them to anyone looking for a matte lipstick that is non drying (yet non-slippery). GUERLAIN maxi lash mascara. maxi lashes, no clumping, new favorite. smells faintly of roses. ...and finally NARS all day luminous weightless foundation. this has been a very interesting journey. when i trialed it with a sample, i decided to skip it. upon my last day of use i tried a different application method, and i decided i didn't want to go without it. siberia is a perfect match for my skin, and as long as my skin is well prepped, it doesn't look like i have on makeup. layers well for more coverage too (though i'd advise letting a thin layer "set" before applying another layer...and it doesn't take long as this foundation sets  fast) HAIR my  new SEDU revolution flat iron. i haven't had to purchase a flat iron in nearly a decade. i mourned the death of my chi because that thing has been through e.v.e.r.y.t.h.i.n.g.  with me, traveled the world with me, and patiently waited for me as my head was shaved. but, alas, it's time came and i lovvvvve this new straightener. and, for whatever it's worth, looks super chic with it's black ceramic plates too ! i didn't know my hair could look this shiny.   how about you ? any new or rekindled beauty love affairs ?

Would you ever get a back up of a product you will never finish?
I love buying beautiful powders, and the fact that they perform well is a bonus. However, most of the time the beauty is on the powder itself and goes awway after use.....but it look so pretty on the face it's a shame not to use it......but it look so gorgeous in the pan it is a shame to ruin the embossing/color.....   The item in question for me is Guerlain Parure de Nuit, which I KNOW I won't be able to finish in the next 3 years if I use it. It's already a bit smeared after a few use and I'd hate to ruin the gorgeous peacock pattern. I kind of want a back up so I can use my current one without worry, but it's produced at least a year ago and buying a $50+ something that I might not use for another 2 or 3 years is......   Do you ever have such dilemma? Back up of something pretty just so you can use the current one without guilt?

The Ultimate Sephora Shopping Spree - What Would You Get?
This afternoon I was playing around with my cart - I added a few things that I'm really lusting after and then I had a thought - What if someone told me that I could have the ultimate Sephora shopping spree and get every single thing that I want? Money is no object. There are a lot of things I would buy, especially if my shopping spree took place in store. I added everything that I would buy online to my cart and I'm rather surprised that it's only $1500.00 worth of stuff. There are a few things that I want that are OOS, but for the most part this is everything. Here's what I would buy. What would you get?

Small, portable makeup items for purse/makeup bag?
Ive searched for this topic and nothing Im really looking for comes up.  I have a small situation on my chin happening, and the heat has been messed up at work, so Im also somewhat sweaty.  I need to touch up my makeup, but my makeup bag for my purse/desk at work is dismal.  I need new stuff.  I threw away the small eyeshadow compact, the cream blush, and the concealer.     AllI have left are botting linens, a set of brushes in a roll, and eyeliner, and lip products. I just replaced my facial mist, and mascara. I need a small eyeshadow compact, blush, and a way to touch up my face makeup- powder preferable and concealer.  AND anything else you gals have that work miracles in a pinch.     i typically have bobby pins/perfume/safety pins/bandaids/etc- so no need for those recs.     Thank you!
