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....

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 ?
The BT community is filled with talented, creative people and I thought it would be fun to start a thread showcasing DIY and other handmade creations! Yesterday evening I made these earrings: What have you created BT?
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?!?!
Much in the thread of Greenchili's Lipstick Challenge and Meg's Blush Challenge, I've decided to take on my own personal palette challenge! When I looked into my palette box today to pick out a look, I was overwhelmed with choice and finally made my selection based on "well, I haven't worn that for awhile." I've got lots of beauties that are completely neglected, and I'd like to stop that immediately. Please feel free to join me for your total collection, 30 days, or however long you'd like. It's cold outside, so why not break up the monotony of winter by mixing it up? Day 1, 1/18/15: Tom Ford Eye Color Quad in 03 Nude Dip (used 3 lightest to balance out my accidental clown cheeks) Day 2, 1/19/15: Tarina Tarantino Jewel Shadow Palette in Diamond Dusk (used 4 of 5 shades) Day 3, 1/20/15: Tarina Taraninto Jewel Shadow Palette in Magical Day 4, 1/21/15: Tom Ford Ombre Eye Color 02 She Wolf Day 5, 1/22/15: Burberry Complete Eye Palette 15 Sage Green Day 6, 1/23/15: Urban Decay Pulp Fiction Palette Day 7, 1/24/15: Burberry Complete Eye Palette 10 Rose Pink Day 8, 1/25/15: MAC Stowaways Quad Day 9, 1/26/15: Yves Saint Laurent Palette Fetiche Day 10, 1/27/15: Tarina Taraninto Jewel Shadow Palette in Delightful
As much as i love my nudes...its frustrating to me that the market is allllll over them at the moment. Not to many new fun colors to play with that I dont already own. Then today in my e-mails i opened the one from MAC, and to my surprise a new Viva Glam Lipstick. Miley1! lol yes miley cyrus i know.....but the color is gorgeous. I ordered it right away....along with 6 other lipstick and a blush LOL uggggh my wallet.
Do you have a shopping list of new products you want to try or just goodies you want in general? Tell me what you've got goin' on in your dream cart! I have: Buxom Lash Mascara (Need another tube, past the 3 months) Ole Henrickson Eye Lift Gel (tried a deluxe sample, loved) Bare Minerals Eye Brightener (Want to try!) Hourglass Ambient Lighting Palette (Have the blush palette and it's amazing.) Stila Eye Shadow in Kitten (I love light, shimmery colors.) Kat Von D Tattoo Liner (just got a deluxe sample and I love it!) Guerlain Meteorites Compact (Love meteorites, want this so bad!) Korres Beauty Shots Mask set (love masks so much!)
I know we all have our holy grail makeup and tools we cant live without. Just curious to see what others holy grails in the hair department are. For me i have two - my tangle teaser and the Living Proof 5-1
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
I have just gotten into makeup and I would love to know the basics that I must have. They can be cult classics, or niche finds. I have a weakness for minis and value sets. Keep in mind that I am not allowed to wear a ton of makeup, so bold eyeshadows and eyeliners are not allowed by my mother. Please post your holy grail products!
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.
I know most of us got quite a collection of skincare and makeup items. Is there any item you always reach for no matter how many products you have? For me, they are FAB ultra repair cream, Cle de Peau Concealer, Shiseido cotton pads and MUFE aqua liner. What are yours?
Bought Vice palette 2 days ago, want Semi-Sweet Chocolate Bar palette today. Wait... If I order today, could I make it home on delivery day before the fiancé does???... Is plotting to hide your Sephora packages from your significant other a sign of an addiction? What should I do???!!!
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!
Hey fellow BT's. So I know of the posts showing makeup storage and vanity setups, but I thought it would be fun to show all the little extras other than makeup that we put in our beauty rooms or area that make them that much more beautiful. Yesterday I found this beeeeautful candle holder (or that's what I made it anyway) at home sense. It's gorgeous. The camera doesn't do it justice. It sparkles like crazy. HAPPY SHARING! Feel free to post where you bought the item and how much.
I love lists. Sometimes I add things I've already done just to cross them out, or track mundane things like 'eat lunch' just to feel accomplished on the weekends. On this note, I love to see what other people track! Do you have a schedule for your regimen (i.e M - mask, T - exfoliate, W - hair mask, etc). or do you just go with the flow? Would love to get a sense of what other people's weeks look like!
Favorite Barney's product recs welcome! 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!), and so I'm filling my Favorites list to get to the minimum... 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)
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?
Why would anyone pay way over the regular price to buy current makeup on eBay? I'm not talking about discontinued, rare, oos, differently formulated, or hard-to-find items. Just regular items that you could buy brand-new from Sephora or other vendors. Not too long ago I ordered Besame Cosmetics Brightening Violet Powder from Sephora. It cost $22. I could also have ordered it from the Besame website. I'm quite happy with it. So why is the exact same item up for auction on a popular e-site for way more money? There is an auction for it with a BIN of $30. Weirder still, one seller has three separate auctions offering the same item for $100 - and apparently many people have bought it! Are they all crazy? Or are the auctions just a front for something else? I don't get it!!!
Hey Ladies and Gents, I have been trying to take pictures of my makeup more, for the blush thread mainly and while they are not horrifying they are not what I would call good. I have really only taken one successful selfie in my life and it is my current user pic. I think the elements that worked for that were natural light and a low tremor day. The camera on my computer is a much better option because I don't have to keep it steady, but the pictures it takes are sub-par. How do you guys do it? Some of your pictures look like they are taken from your computer's camera. How do you make the pictures not terrible?
I recently watched a youtube post discussing trends for 2015. Basically how deep nudes and mauve are what's "in" for the year. Also every company pretty much is on the nude trend. I understand it's popular but I'm dying for some more vibrant lippies and shadows for the spring and summer. The fall and winter I can go back to my nudes but I wish company's and public figures would stop telling people this is what's in and oh we neeeeed to get this and that. Me personally....if I want to wear a deep red in the summer or a bright pink in the winter...then I shall do so lol. I'm not saying I don't love new products that come out because I do. They are fresh and fun to play with new items. I guess I wish more would wear things because they want to. Not because it's whats on trend at the moment.
Am I the only one that freaks out with every birthday that passes. I dont know what it is, I cant explain it. After i Hit 20-21... whenever my birthday is approaching i have serious anxiety. When it passes I almost feel depressed. Not enough for anyone to notice or to really affect me, but I just hate aging. LOL does anyone else feel or get like this? My birthday is approaching in February and I can already feel the anxiousness when I think about it.
What makeup is everyone wearing today? Today I am wearing: 1. Benefit Hello Flawless Foundation in Champagne 2. Benefit Coralista blush 3. TheBalm Mary-Loumanizer 4. Dior Creme de Rose Lipbalm 5. Dior Addict Lipstick in 454 6. Benefit Creaseless Cream shadow in RSVP and under all this I am wearing Neutrogena Pure and Free Liquid Sunblock SPF 50 So c'mon now...confess!
Dumb question, I know but....my sister and I would like to start a vlog and blog with pictures. We both agree it's time we do it since we have so much stuff and like talking about makeup (it's more than that) She's also into crafts too. I understand my picture will be out there but if I don't use my name can it be linked back to me personally? Like is there an app that can use a picture and find me on social media?
My sister and I happened to be shopping in Long Island, NY and stumbled onto the newly open elf studio store in the mall. OMG I'm not even a huge fan of elf and there was just enough things to make buy a mini haul. I'm going to update with pics of my haul soon but it was so cool. It's one thing to skip over the elf section in target...it's another to walk into a whole store. I'm so excited to post pics and swatch the stuff I bought
I'm always into reading about different ethnicities'/cultures'/regions' beauty routines/secrets. Certain groups are known for having enviable locks, skin, etc. Some obtained by lengthy beauty routines, some from age old wisdom/cultural traditions passed down through generations (certain oils, spices, etc). Lately I've been fascinated reading about the Korean skincare routine and thinking of ways to adopt portions of it into my own. What are some tricks of the trade from your particular background or which ones have you become fascinated with? I'd love to adopt different tips and techniques from those that do it best. Share your knowledge or let us know which sites/blogs keep you in the know on these skincare, haircare, diet, health routines!
I bet I'm not the only one with this problem - you see some really cool, like a bold lipstick / crazy colored liner / shirt / whatever, you buy it, you wear it around the house, but you can't bring yourself to go out with it... ever happened to you? I really like lipsticks. A lot. But, I never wore the really deep/bold shades out of the house in daylight (I did wear Hourglass Siren to a wedding this summer, but it was really late so it wasn't really noticeable). I finally did it! I had a family gathering over the weekend, and I wore my beloved Audacious lipstick in Audrey, which yes, is not a bright red, but on my fair complexion it's really deep. So, yay
Ive been so bored and in between watching football and laundry, Im busy wheeling and dealing in trades...lol. Then I decided that I need to check out Color pop because I need some retail therapy, its super cheap and right in my price range and you all on BT rave about it. I checked out the site and I love it: not tested on animals, super colorful and friendly, and cheap. So, can you guys help me decide on something I need from them? I want free shipping and I have a $5 off code for signing up, so Im in for about $35 or so. What is a must have? I am a tad afraid of colors, although I do have some- I figured this was a way to not break bank and experiment. So unless there is a neutral thats a must have, Im looking for some color. Thanks ladies...
