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!!!

It was $42 plus ebates was at 8%.  For me, I've either been wanting to try all of these items, or have tried and really like them.    More pics and thoughts in the first post.

Beauty Delights Thread
I've had a lot of Beauty Pet Peeves lately and am feeling a little annoyed at the moment so I'm trying to turn my mood around and have decided to focus on some Beauty Delights instead of my peeves! Please chime in with the delightful small and not-so-small beauty-related happenings that make your day or just make you smile. Here are are a few recent ones for me: A mascara that was supposed to be on back order until June 6th was unexpectedly waiting for me on my doorstep when I got home today on June 3rd! Making a very late night online Sephora order and waking up the next morning to an email that it has already shipped! Ordering lipstick and having them sit out in the 100 degree heat all day and having them still in tact when you finally get home. OK, those were all mail related but very delightful! Oh wait I have one more! I noticed today that my hair has officially grown past my bra strap in the back. This was an Official Milestone I was aiming to reach. Very exciting!

Local Trade
Hey BTers! I was wondering if anyone would be interested in local trades. That is, you could meet the person FTF with whom you'd be trading with and it would save shipping charge. It could be a win win!   I have a few items I wanted to trade but find myself not on the trade thread because I'm not sure who the successful traders are, I am online primarily on my phone and creating and searching lists are not very easy (I did try when I missed out on the Maestro offer GA had and wanted to see if someone put it up for trade) and who am I kidding- I'm CHEAP when it comes to shipping   So I was thinking if enough people are interested we could make this a thing. We could make it searchable by creating a format for our trades: ie " <major city> local area trade <item> " For example I am in the Dallas area. I currently have a few items I really won't use. I will list it out and specify on the comments. Hopefully I find a home for my items and maybe make a friend   I'm not sure what guidelines we need yet so if many are interested we can come up with guidelines together.

Your obsessions… things you can’t resist.
What is it that you can't resist buying? Makeup? Nail Polish? Skin Care? Maybe it’s a specific product like blush or lipstick, or even a specific color or brand.  What do you have plenty of yet keep buying? What are you obsessed with?   I can't resist coral or nude/beige lipsticks.  I also can't resist buying blue/green shadows... actually shadows in general are my weakness. MAC is definitely a weakness for me and now so is Viseart! I also have a weakness for silver jewelry.

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 !

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.

ROUND TWO (April):   Buggirl triestobeclassy laynebr JazaChai sdbeautyjunkie and Me (nicrohr)   The box has to be back to me by Friday May 6th at the absolute latest, but ideally a few days before that; I will probably have to post my trades after my trip unless it gets back to me sooner.   If there is time, we will add in (at the end):   AnneMCC Sprytely Kateye Valentine - username need to check (or these folks could be in Round 3 if we do one in summer)     LIST IS FULL!   Required spreadsheet for tracking items (update with your ins/outs):  https://docs.google.com/spreadsheets/d/1m_6lreTep1 zbDJ05TmTsSAMSREfs1qHHyo9Uzod2c44/edit?usp=sharing     Review of "guidelines" for ease of reference Spoiler (Highlight to read) Also, take a minute to re-read the guidelines for the next round, always a good refresher.  Remember that if you ask and someone wants something it can go in, otherwise stick to the "rules", summarizing those here since they are scattered throughout our discussion:   1.  brand parity (please put in same level or better to keep the box nice! ask if questions, questions are ok!)   2.  we're just using retail value if something is lightly used up to like 5x which means no dip at all (however, if something is well loved maybe don't put it in the box unless someone wants it, just ask -- and if so it should be discounted)   3.  please make sure you fill out the spreadsheet correctly on your turn, it's taken me a lot of work throughout to keep going back to correct itn and there are still some errors - not a huge deal but still   4. turnaround in 48 hours/2 days or less since we're on a timeline   5. No nail polish or perfume, unless you specifically ask and someone wants it shortly after you (not sure how we got so far away from this guideline on the first round - maybe it was for things people asked for but didn't take not sure!)    6. This round, if there is room and you want to donate toiletries, you can put those in for the donation as long as they aren't huge/there is space.  Otherwise no large items/body care/etc. Also, take a minute to re-read the guidelines for the next round, always a good refresher.  Remember that if you ask and someone wants something it can go in, otherwise stick to the "rules", summarizing those here since they are scattered throughout our discussion: 1.  brand parity (please put in same level or better to keep the box nice! ask if questions, questions are ok!) 2.  we're just using retail value if something is lightly used up to like 5x which means no dip at all (however, if something is well loved maybe don't put it in the box unless someone wants it, just ask -- and if so it should be discounted) 3.  please make sure you fill out the spreadsheet correctly on your turn, it's taken me a lot of work throughout to keep going back to correct itn and there are still some errors - not a huge deal but still 4. turnaround in 48 hours/2 days or less since we're on a timeline 5.

Thanks!   Here is the link to GPL's box from last year that was awesome, and if we run into questions or issues I will likely refer to this thread -- I will base this box largely off her process/rules.  (Notably, our box will not be new only, swatched and gently loved welcome.)   http://community.sephora.com/t5/VIB/NEW-Items-TSB/ m-p/1881761/highlight/true#M47650   and if you are new to TSBs especially, here are some general good practices (thanks again to these ladies for posting them):   http://community.sephora.com/t5/Makeup/TSB-Best-Pr actices-for-the-BT-Community/m-p/2001133/highlight ...   (Some of these I am not as picky on, I don't care if an item was tried 1x or 4x for example, but if it's well loved that should be noted (i.e. a dip, etc.).

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?

All about backups (and backups of the backups)
For the last year I have really tried to stop buying so much of anything beauty related since it amassed to more than I can use in a timely manner.     Which leads me to questions about backups.  I consider a backup a product  an identical product or one I have more than one of that serves the same purpose, e.g. having several face washes that help acne, yet they are different in brand or having several face masks that are moisturizing. I did an inventory and I see that i tend to hoard face washes and toners, and I have an abundancy of face masks, even though many of them serve the exact same purpose, and usage depends on how I feel or what I consider my fav at the moment.   Here are my questions for you:   1.  How many backups do you have of any one product? 2.  What product makes you panic if you run low or have no backup? 3.  How many backups is too many? 4.  Do you hoard more than one of the exact same product or just have many of the same type of product? 5.  Whats the one product you will never let run out? 6.  What product do you have backups for that you regret? 7.  What product do you wish you had backups for, but is no longer available? 8.  When do you buy the backup (i.e. do you buy it when you open the last one or do you buy it well before the last one is opened?) 9. Where do you store the backups?  Do you stop buying bc you run out of room or just find room somewhere?   What did I leave out?

Addicted?
Are you addicted to Sephora? How do you know?   I'm on the site a good 30+ times per day, and constantly on Sephora mobile, beauty points come and go pretty easily, and I just picked my next apartment due to its proximity to a Sephora store. Anybody else do anything like that?   I doubt any of us want "help" for our love of beauty, but, do you think you're addicted? I know I am!
