Teenage guy
Hey everyone! I'm a teenage guy and I love skincare. I'm starting to get into very natural looking makeup just to conceal and even out some redness. Im very excited to be part of this forum! I get very passionate about this stuff! I just love it. I want to work in the beauty industry after I graduate!

Empties
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.

A return with a lecture just what I wanted.
  My Local Sephora is usually fantastic, never had a complaint about them... until today. I returned 5 products in-store today.. from 4 separate purchases I made during spring fling. 2 unused and unopened... and 3 products I really disliked. So the teller calls over the manager because it is a larger return, which I totally understand.. The manager looks at me and says.. You want to return all of these, you used them all.. and are returning them? Don't you know you can get samples so you don't waste so much product." and gives me an eye roll and a condescending look. So I tell her that 2 are unused and the other 3 products were all skin care and did not work for my skin.. I thought used products that didn't work were able to be returned.. Is this not the case? Or does everyone, get a lecture when they return a product used? Curious if you guys make returns of used products? I personally am really turned off getting samples from jars and such because people are constantly putting their dirty hands in to the product and them I am supposed to put that on my face. Just a gross thought for me. Am I wrong in returning used Skincare?

Starving for a discount, triple points, something!
We had triple points on fragrance in both February and May and double points on skincare in January.  Then, 15% off during Chic Week in April.  Sephora Friends and Family is in October and then slowly VIB/Rouge/BI's are given a 20% discount in November.  I've already used my annual 10% VIB renewal discount.   So, here I sit in the month of July sure there has to be something coming, because that is a big time gap until the next fabulous promotion.  I've been searching and see each August, Sephora has done something fun (2011 VIB weekend was every Rouge's DREAM!).  Last year looks like it was a double point situation to celebrate the new BI program.     Please fill in the blanks, where you see them!  I'm ready to make a bigger purchase, but am holding off for some perks!

The jury's still out on whether or not this Les Merveilleuses Laduree Face & Eye Color... ehm... powder is actually functional. Let's face it, who's actually going to dip a brush into this work of art?!   New Meteorites, I need you in my life now -- new pink packaging and all!   Diorsnow Fresh Cheeks Blush. Word on the street is that it will be a Nordstrom Anniversary exclusive from Dior this year!   Purely out of curiosity, what makes a brush so darn good that one can achieve VIB status by purchasing this alone?!   Share away, BTers!

Wedding in three weeks tan before or after the beach
Let me first state that I only go tanning before my yearly vacation so I do not get burnt and peel. I do however have a slight base tan from relaxing by the pool.    So I suppose my question is should I go tanning prior to the beach trip so I do not burn ... and turn into a reptile!! Or after I get back to rid myself of tan lines before the wedding ( I'm a bridesmade wearing a strapless dress)      What would you ladies do?!?

To make up or not?
My husband always claims he finds me most attractive, sans makeup. Yet when I wear subtle,natural looking make up, out come the compliments! I'm definitely a make up junkie but have no problem going out bare faced. So,this is a two part question: do you feel others (including men) respond to you more positively in your make up? And do you feel comfortable going out in public with a naked face?

Marc Jacobs 1000 point perk
Hi,     I went to Sephora today and the Ottawa Bayshore location had the 1000 pt perk already. The SA said it should be available in all stores already.     My first thought was that they look beautifully displayed in the box The SA was sweet enough to open a set as a tester for me since she said the colours are limited edition.   The lipstick was a raspberry red/purple. It really depends on how much or how little you put on. I know that you should prep your lips before applying a dark colour but I didn't have time to do that when I tried it on so it started to bleed within 2 hrs. Maybe sooner, but that's when I first noticed. I'm used to YSL and Tom Ford lipsticks so I found the lipstick drying.For me, the colour was not flattering (I only tried the lipstick). I had swatched them both but forgot and washed my hands! I'll have to go back sometime this week and take pictures (I was too in a rush, sorry!) The gloss leaned brown, that's all I remember.   I won't be spending my points on this perk as I didn't find this colour flattering on my tanned asian skinned.   Also, for 1000pts, I was really hoping there was more than just a lipstick and lip gloss.   The pic is after having it on for 3 hrs and eating a bit. Sorry the lighting isn't great in the pic!
