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!!!

RANDOM THOUGHTS : BEAUTY
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.   _____________   SWATCH REQUEST THREAD HERE:   http://community.sephora.com/t5/The-Swatch-Board/T HE-SWATCH-REQUEST-THREAD/td-p/2223212   (have fun wasting even more time in the...)

Nicole's Wishing for Spring 2016 TSB Feb-April... AArdvark
Spoiler (Highlight to read) I have way too much stuff, so I'm starting another TSB. I've participated in many and run two TSBs, all were great experiences and I got to know people better which was fun!     This also helps support my low buy, as I get all the fun of seeing the products find new homes and new stuff to try at the end when it gets back to me.  I know a homeless outreach/shelter that I usually donate at the end, I will think about what to do this time, I haven't decided yet!

Single Makeup Bag Challenge
Do you ever think about what products are truly important to you, and what you could live without? We're all dirty dragons who hoard sparkly and beloved treasures. If you had to get rid of all of your makeup, except for what you can fit into a single makeup bag (or train-case if you're not feeling daring), what would you keep? Why?   I would love to see photos of how much you guys can jam-pack into a makeup bag. Did you end up packing lighter than you thought or was it hard to choose? I'm not including skin care, because I'm not a monster.    Second Part: Can we stand by our decisions and live with our makeup bag for at least a week? Who can go the longest???    I'm going to sleep on it and start tomorrow

Discussion for the Diptyque Crowd (please join!)
If you are a fan obsessed or just a beauty lover curious about Diptyque, come on over! I thought this would be a fun place to share your thoughts, collections, decorating ideas, questions about the fabulous world of Diptyque. I started out with one candle, the Beverly Hills candle-which is so fabulous-I'll post a picture of it tomorrow-thinking I was crazy to buy a $70 candle. Yes, it's crazy-crazy good! I've since collected 2 or 3 more and purchased a perfume. This week I got my first body care item, the satin body oil. I really love everything from Diptyque. So let's discuss One question I have is how do you get the inside cleaned out so you can use the jars for pretty collections like I see a lot of on social media?

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 !

Where do you store your makeup?
I have little plastic, circular makeup rack type thing I bought from Walmart awhile back that I've been using to keep all my makeup in, but I've officially run out of room. I know some of you have vanities, but for those of you that don't, where do you keep your makeup? How do you organize it? I've seen some nice, big organizers online, but they seem way too expensive to me. I like having all my makeup in one place, and I hate the clutter of makeup sprawled across a bathroom counter or thrown in a drawer. Do you guys have any suggestions for a good storage system for an expanding makeup collection?

Barney's Love Yourself 2016 Spring GWP (Planning, Rumors, Dates, Etc.)
This is the place to plan, get excited, and compare notes on what we think about the Barney's 2016 Love Yourself gift bag/purchase event!   Updates 1/20/15: It looks like this year's bag will be early to mid March, with some presell starting now, and the buy in will be $200.  I haven't confirmed this directly, but this all seems to be the case.   Don't forget at least 2.5% Ebates on Barneys.com if you order the GWP bag online btw (if you need an Ebates referral code PM me!).   Here is last year's spring bag for reference:   and last year's Fall bag with the grooming/men's gift on the right as well (they sometimes have a 'men's' gift option that doesn't include color cosmetics).   Previous years this event has been Feb 10-13th (i.e. Valentine's Day "Love Yourself" time), but last year it was mid-March instead, surprise.  I don't have dates for this year yet or even rumors, but I will update (or you can post below) when we hear things.   In previous years the buy-in for this GWP has been $200-250.   I usually stock up on a few necessary staples to justify the price to myself (Kiehl's Creme de Corps body wash and body scrub I always need and Barney's carries them), and then a few luxury items to try as well, to get to the GWP minimum.   Here are previous threads that discuss and compare this GWP (previous years) that you might find helpful:   http://community.sephora.com/t5/Beauty-Confessions /Saving-amp-Preparing-for-Barney-s-Mid-Feb-Awesome ...   http://community.sephora.com/t5/Beauty-Confessions /Barneys-vs-Space-NK-vs-Bluemercury-early-Septembe ...   So, join me in posting on this thread about our hopes, fears, comparisons to other GWP, and potential purchase lists (best products to buy at Barneys!? recommendations!?) below.   I know in the fall Blue Mercury and Space NK did similar GWP and similar times as the Fall Barney's big GWP bag, but I'm not sure if they do this in the Spring - so I'm not sure if there are major competing GWP to compare this time or not.  Interested in your feedback!

A Prickly Subject: How do you deal with facial hair?
We all have it. Whether it's light, downy peach fuzz on our cheeks or dark stubborn strays on our chins, we all must manage the vestiges of our mammal-dom. And either we have a strategy that works, or we're looking for a better one.   Share your strategy for dealing with facial hair!   Do you embrace your fuzz and let it do its thing? Do you shave? Depilate? Dermaplane? Bleach? Thread? Pluck?  Have you undergone electrolysis or laser removal?  Have you used an at-home device? How do you like the results? Do you have hormonal issues (PCOS, menopause, pregnancy, et al) that make your current facial hair situation unique?   What questions do you have for others about managing facial hair?    If you are a master of your mammalian plight, what sage advice can you offer others?
