What's the point of 3 day shipping
So basically my friend's birthday party is on the 4th and I bought my item on the 28th of February and I was expecting it to come by Saturday on the latest because that gives about five days. BUT. I get the email that it was shipped today, which is the second, which means that my order took two days to process? and that the commitment time for ontrac says that my package will come on the 6th of Monday. which also is four days to ship. what's the point of spending extra when my package isn't going to ship in time? I was a loyal customer but this just really takes the cake, especially because I cashed in extra money and I've never had this problem before.

Deciem's Ordinary Line??
Hi all!   I was curious if anyone else here uses the Ordinary by Deciem for their skin?? I would love to hear feedback on what is working, not working, or suggestions for better products.   I am currently using the Hyaluronic acid serum, the Niacinamide serum, Caffeine eye solution, and the Advanced Retinoid 2%.  Personally, I think they are very effective, especially for the price!

Trouble Accessing BT? Or is it just me?
Weird. A few days ago I tried to get on BT but got an error message. Something like 'Authentication Error, please contact your service administrator and supply reference number 12345'. So I couldn't get here. 😦 It's been days and I have been so irked about this, but I keep trying to get on day and night. No friends knew what the problem was. Then after getting that stupid message 1,369 times today (okay,  slight  exaggeration - #FakeNews 😜) I noticed that it did say 'beauty talk' in the upper left side of that window, so I hit it and Voila! I'm here!! So that's good news. BUT , I now fear that little trick may stop working at some point and you all know what it's like being without BT! 😯 😟 😐. Has anybody else had this issue? Does anyone have any thoughts about this problem? (Totally computer/tablet unfriendly here)   **Outing Myself......Confession - funny paranoid nanosecond of a thought - D id someone in my house mess with my tablet so I can't get promo access, talk to friends etc.?  They flip out if they see a package that I was not able to intercept and hide. If they could block my access, they would! 😒 Meanies....like Bumbles with a never ending toothache and no Elf dentist in sight. Thanks for any input. This makes you realize how much our BT Family matters, for sure. Thanks again my friends. ❤

Semi-sweet palette being sold in stores or not anymore?
I've been to multiple sephoras, they all don't seem to carry the semi-sweet chocolate bar palette by too faced anymore. I was wondering if they still sold it in stores? I live in Dallas Texas and can't seem to find it in any sephoras. I have yet to try looking at Ulta stores.

Selling Used Makeup on Ebay???
I am moving soon and have been looking at my makeup collection.   I have many powder-type makeup palettes that I am thinking of selling on ebay.  The majority of them have only been swatched and then put in my vanity, where they have sat unused since I bought them.  I also have many swatched colourpop eyeshadows that I don't use.   Is it ok to sell lightly used eyeshadow, blush, highlighter and bronzer on ebay?  Is that a no-no?  I hate to just throw them away, and there really isn't anywhere to donate them locally or anyone I know who would like to have them.    What do you all think?

Beauty finds in Europe and Germany!
Hey all! I am travelling to Germany (Berlin) and Italy(Venice Verona Florence Rome and maybe Bologna) in a couple of weeks and was wondering what beauty items some of you might have snagged there that are not available in Canada!

VIB ROUGE PRODUCTS - 2016
Hi! I started a thread about new VIB ROUGE ONLY Products on New Years Eve, but the title made it hard to find. (Even   I  couldn't find it for this update, had to scroll through my old posts.)

Hopefully this new one will be easier to find.  I'll come back and put the others from that list here and do a little searching to see if there is anything else hiding anywhere. *Please feel free to post something if you find a new VIB ROUGE product.

Mothers Day & Makeup, Plus Memories & experiences with Makeup Mentors, Mothers, Mother figures, friends, sibs etc. And special stories etc.
🌹Happy Mothers Day to all of the Mom's out there, both human and furbaby (etc.) Moms.🌹I'd been planning on doing a Mothers Day thread. Then I posted something a while back, just a silly but sweet story about how my Mom saved the day with a Wet & Wild lipstick. I almost didn't post it, thought it might be silly or something, but to my surprise, there was an outpouring of love that was wonderful and overwhelming.   Someone suggested starting a thread then and repeating the story, so I had decided not to wait until Mothers Day, but as they say, 'the best laid plans'. (Maybe I couldn't 'go there'?) So here I am now, finally. I will post that story a little later. I have to get my beauty sleep right now, going to 'visit' my Mom & Dad tomorrow. (Well, actually later today.) So I will be back later and I hope this thread lights up the board and that love, memories (of makeup, skincare, haircare and more) will be here then.    I know I'm not the only one who has lost someone - be it a close human or furry family member, other relative, friend etc. So maybe we can share stories, maybe good or bad makeup advice from your makeup mentors, how your makeup, skincare, haircare and other skills and how your look was influenced and how it evolved and came to be and maybe do some healing.   This is my first Mothers Day without my Mom, again, I'm sure I'm not alone in this. So this is an especially rough one - all of those Hallmark Cards commercials are killing me! But such is life. Many hearts are a bit sadder today, but let's be happy for days gone by and be happy for those who still have their Moms. May you all have a special day. If you've been out of touch, maybe this is good support to help you reach out if you can.   One of my Best friends has been there for me like you would not believe. 👭She just sent me  The most beautiful card imaginable. I will be back later and I will try to share it with you. (A little afraid that once I start writing it I might change my mind and need to keep it to myself a little longer - but I will try. I just didn't want to promise and then not do it)    This thread does not have to end today, when Mothers Day has passed. Hopefully we can keep it going and flowing to the right places at the right time in the future. Let's hope this helps now and in the future when other unavoidable losses will occur.   I hope we have a lot of fun with this, maybe some tears - hopefully some happy ones. Stories of how we received our makeup, skin, hair training and makeup, hair, skin tips, and other things that I may not have mentioned too. I'm sure everyone has received good and bad makeup tips, let's share those in order to keep us looking our best and help others from making makeup blunders! See you all later. This one's for my Mom. 🌷   Hope no typos etc - hard to see them through my eyelids. 😉 Sorry so long.   EDIT -  The day hasn't gone as planned, I need to go back through threads to find the story I mentioned above. (Ruh-Roh) I will try to come back a little later. But, heck, even if it is tomorrow - who cares?  Every Day should be Mothers Day. *Since this is also about makeup, skincare etc, and our mentors and inspirations, this can go on for as long as we want. Hope to be back this evening (7:15p EST now) but once I come back and find it I'll post it, I'll be back. Want to finish reading other posts that I haven't yet gotten to.   I Hope everyone is enjoying the day. For those of us who are not in celebratory mode today, at least we know we are not alone - others know just where we are. Just have to remember good times, Yes, I know that's much easier said then done.    ** Please remember we are a Sisterhood and each link makes all of us stronger. ** *Some great lipstick and love of beautification doesn't hurt either! 😉💋

Okay, problem - I'm debating between:   1815760 - GRANDE LIPS GrandLIPS Hydrating Lip Primer - it says it's $27.00 and is  .05oz .   ~COMPARED TO~   1798164 - Guerlain Abaille Royal Honey Smile Lift which is $82.00 ( )  BUT  It says it's  .5oz. (which I really have no business buying, but it's on saaaaaale! and it also is a much better value if sizes are correct.)   What's wrong with  This  picture? Comparing sizes and prices, it seems like a no brainer - Guerlain, while pricey, offers much more product. That's IF the size info is correct. (Plus it's Guerlain and fancy and makes me feel a bit.....Ooh-La-La 😙)   Then let's add a little more confusion to my brain - It's 1022318 - Guerlain Liplift Lip Primer - it's .11oz and is $37.00. Granted, somewhat different product, but it seems to have it's merits and has been on my radar for some time. So afraid something may sell out - and of course  that's the one I'll decide I Neeeeeed. You all know how it is. Thanks a bunch, I really do appreciate it, hope others will too. 🌷   There are others, but I'll leave it there for now. If anyone has any other info, experiences with these products , or other products in this arena, I would appreciate any and all info & insight greatly. I do like 'the tingle' of most products, btw.🍀 EDIT- Yeah, duh, could just check Guerlain's & GRANDELIPS websites. Have to sign off for now though. Sorry so long. Thanks.
