I love seeing other peoples empties! So I decided to make a board where people could post pictures of their empties, or just tell us about them! I'd also be interested in knowing whether you're repurchasing anything or not.
Hey my Lovely BeautyTalkers! Long story short: last year during the mega points rewards event I spent my points on a Phyto gift package that included a gift certificate ($160 value) to the Phyto Universe beauty oasis on Lexington Ave in New York. I live in California and won't be able to use the gift certificate, which expires on August 4th, 2015. So in the spirit of BeautyTalk generosity and gift-giving, I would like to send this gift certificate for one spa treatment (up to a $160 value) to a BTer who will be able to use it. So, if you think you will be in that area and able to use the certificate before August 4th - all you have to do is post in this thread with your best guess at what my very first Urban Decay eyeshadow single was . (It is still available in the permanent range and has not been disco'd.) I will allow up to three guesses per person, so when I see the correct guess I will go through and check to see that you didn't guess more than 3 times. I am happy to answer any questions, so feel free to post those as well. Good Luck, beauty friends!
So, I thought this would be a really useful thread. Only in the past year have I started wearing foundation every day and am looking to expand my collection, but sometimes color matching is really difficult, especially since certain brands are sold in certain stores which are difficult to get to in-person. I thought everyone could list the foundations they have found that match their skintone, which can help others who are in the same shade range as them. Also, if you see someone posts with the similar shades to what you wear, you can suggest more colors that could also work for them! I have found good matches with: Bobbi Brown Skin Foundation - 00 Alabaster Nars Pure Radiant Tinted Moisturizer - Terre Neuve Givenchy Photo'Perfexion Fluid Foundation - 1 Perfect Ivory MUFE Mat Velvet + No.15 Jane Iredale Amazing Base - Ivory Dr. Jart Premium Beauty Balm Slightly too yellow for me: Jouer Matte Moisture Tint - Porcelain Bourjois Healthy Mix - 51 Tarte 2-in-1 Foundcealer - Fair NARS All Day Luminous - Siberia Slightly too dark for me: NARS Sheer Glow - Mont Blanc Dior Star Fluid Foundation - 001 Ivory
Anyone tried the new colors (Beige Sunrise and Pink Sunrise) of the Dior Lip Maximizer High Volume Lip Plumper? Are they sheer colors? Pretty? Any pictures? I am curious about the colors and they aren't in my local Sephora store the last time I was there....
I recently won a $500 Nordstrom gift card ina beauty blogger giveaway- and my first thought was wishing it was a Sephora card- right? Of course I had not trouble using some of it recently- on some things I had been lusting for. First thing I noticed is that their free samples are really luxe- many are deluxe size and really high end things.The next thing that happened was that my purchases not only ended up with individual gifts with purchase- ie a Bobbie Brown shadow stick AND a mascara for buying corrector and concealer, and an hourglass primer and mascara for buying an hourglass blush, but I got a GWP I didn't even now was happening- a leather zipper pouch with a bunch of deluxe samples that blew my mind- dolce and gabana mascara, YWL under eye concealer, La Mer toner- it was a huge number of things and almost every sample was as big as the one we get for spending $25. To add to that I discovered their points program is cash credit...and in addition you can link your ATM to get points. It has me thinking.....

Hi all! I just ran out of my Estee Lauder Serum (Perfectionist) and was looking for a recommendation on a new serum. My skin is combination but gets quite dry at times so I can't use anything that would enhance dryness.My main "concerns" is aging and lines (i'm 31 so they're not terrible but they're there) and making my skin look nice. I turn to you all for reco's because i've done a lot of research and i'm having trouble figuring out what to use. Whenever I think I found a good one, I research the ingredients to find there is not a high enough dose to make it effective (for example - I thought the Dior dreamskin serum would be a great one and liked the way it felt, but when I researched the ingredients, it didnt' get good reviews). So I just want to see what has worked for others. I've used prob 10 different serums over the course of my life. I love Skinceuticals but it's too pricey and not sold from Sephora so looking for something else I'm also almost out of moisturizer so if you have a reco' of a moisturizer that goes well with the serum, please let me know. I find that most of the research I do on moisturizers before buying them, shows they lose their potency super quickly when they're in a jar format. Thanks all
Anyone want to trade, i have some perfume, would you be interested in any of the following... unopened new bottle of pink sugar oz (41.00), 2 small bottles of polo - #2 (25.00) and # 4 (25.00) unused and unopened. I also have a bottle of shame used 1x- oz (110.00). Looking for makeup or palettes... skin care. Thanks!
Hi all! I need a new organizer for my makeup/skin care - i've currently been using an old school caboodle lol and it's time to get something nicer. I love the original beauty box but it's just too pricey for a makeup organizer. Does anyone have a cheaper suggestion that still looks nice? Thanks!!
As some of you know I was able to get the 10K Josie Maran perk. There was no information about where the trip was, when it needed to be redeemed, etc... when the perks went live. It wasn't until AFTER I placed my order that I noticed the trip is for PA. I LIVE in PA! So obviously this is not a perk that is worthwhile to me, let alone worth 10K points. I wanted to be able to just cancel it and get my points back so someone who would truly enjoy the trip would have a chance at it. Sephora CS messaged me to essentially say: my reward was non-refundable non-returnable according to their terms of service. (Paraphrased since a mod deleted what was actually written) This is absolutely disgusting in my opinion. Sephora gives out points like candy... they've been doing it ALL day! And I can't even offer up my trip to anyone else! Someone who would actually enjoy it! For the record, my order has not shipped or anything like that. So thanks, Sephora... for really outdoing yourself! Just when I thought your customer service couldn't get any worse. ***Edited to add my response*** **Oh and apparently my message from Sephora CS was edited out by a mod*** So what you're telling me is that because your IT people didn't have any sort of description up when the perks launched (at 4am EST by the way), that we as consumers are supposed to just take responsibility for whatever it will eventually say? I thought being clear and concise was the responsibility of the MERCHANT not the CONSUMER. I'm not sure how that is binding in any way, shape, or form. Traditionally these trips are for places like Paris and LA, there's no way anyone would assume that this year's perk would take place in Pennsylvania. That's ridiculous. Additionally, last year people were refunded for their "mega" points that were unsatisfactory (the purses and the custom Bite lipsticks) so I'm not sure why this doesn't count in the same way. It's beyond outrageous to do this when you could've made this customer happy by simply returning my points and another customer happy by offering this reward again when so many people missed out. All with a few mouse clicks and keystrokes. There were several people on Beauty Talk (you know, the place where your most loyal customers gather) who would've really enjoyed having this trip, so it's honestly awful the way you're handling this situation. Just remember, you're alienating customers who have accumulated 10K+ points. Those points don't come without purchases. It's Sephora who is losing money and garnering bad press because of "customer service" like this. Melissa
I just became a VIB member, almost on my way to VIB Rouge, I read a lot on the perks, the discounts around April and November? plus a lot were saying around Christmas time they give $20 gift cards or something like that? It didn't even occur to me that I was reading all these people over in the states and that Canada usually gets cheaped out on these kinds of things...i just wanna know if there is any canadian members or even u.s. members who would know if I have anything to actually look forward too?
What are your favorites for travel, purse, your desk at work? I have just started a new job that requires a good bit of travel, so I am always in the market for practical - and fun! - travel and bag accessories. Would love to see what y'all are using!! Do you have particular shapes/sizes that work best for each situation? Here's what I'm loving right now - although, I think have a makeup bag addiction problem, so it changes! Pictured: - MUFE sample for scale, and then from top: Kate Spade Saturday (RIP!) canvas triangle bag (great for travel with all of my cosmetics, but skincare has to all be in a separate bag), J.Crew Factory stripe/neon bag (for brushes), Falconwright cactus bag (for purse and soooo tiny, so it is really only good for just few things like a lipstick, gloss, compact, and small eyeliner).
So every Mother's Day is my official time for going through my samples. In fact, my mother's day gift to my mother in law each year is actually a makeup bag stuffed with samples I have accumulated from the previous year's shopping trips. (She loves this by the way.) Tonight was my night to inventory, giveaway most of my stock, and reorganize the remaining components of my makeup and trial box samples collection. This is when it dawned on me.... I HAVE A MAKEUP SAMPLE PROBLEM! When you realize that: 1. You can go shopping basically in your makeup closet for any makeup product from the last year from among the samples you have collected. 2. That you have enough perfume and foil samples to last through any sort of natural disaster. 3. You really don't need to go makeup shopping after all (but you still will of course) because you have enough samples to use for your whole beauty regimen.... Maybe you have a problem !! Yes, my name is Willa and I have a makeup sample hoarding problem. Who is with me???? (I've posted pictures to prove my craziness... I even separate each sample bag according to category and by type. Who does that? Oh yeah, me!)
Hi everyone, my current shopping bag qualifies me for the VIB level but am I supposed to receive the welcome kit in this package, in a later separate package, or can I pick it up in store? Also, what does the welcome kit contain? Super excited about reaching this level! Thanks guys!
