Hi all! THIS IS NOT A SIGN-UP LIST, just gauging interest--for now ! I've only been a part of BT since October, so I'm sort of a "baby", but I've learned a LOT and loved every minute. After seeing carrie1975 and jaimelove say that they were planning on starting post-holidays traveling boxes in a thread about those very boxes, I became inspired. I've never been a part of a box, but I've done a lot of research and I think I've gathered a sufficient amount to say with confidence that it would be really fun to start one! Here's my idea: I would send it out on December 31st (a Tuesday, I've checked) and have it be the first Sephora Traveling Box of 2014! How does that sound? We could decide on where leftovers go (a charity, shelter, etc.) TOGETHER and have a short list so we can actually get to know each other a bit more. That's one of my main motivations for inquiring about interest in this box, because I would love to get to know you guys more! Such knowledgeable, beautiful people here on BT Let me know! <3
I can't remember which thread it was on, but one of y'all mentioned Nordstrom's Rack having makeup and beauty products. And, dang, sure enough mine did!! How'd I NOT know this? Well... this is what just one shelf looked like, and there were about 5 like this: And, why yes that DOES day UD eyeliner for under $4... And I got ALL these polishes!! Ack!
In the tradition of BT, and because who doesn't love a good haul? I saw that beautytester provided Notorious November for us, so I wanted to continue with the alliteration...so many options for December. I debated decadent, delicious, divine...dangerous won out in the end because with sales all over the freaking place, it seems the most fitting! My wallet hates me right now Here's what I got when I went home over Thanksgiving weekend: Eve Lom cleanser (So many raves, so many rants...what do YOU think? I don't have an opinion yet, it's too early) Buxom Lashliner in Leatherette (My first gel eyeliner!) YSL Rouge Volupté Shine in Pink in Confidence (New MLBB, love this!) Dior Crème de Rose (Repurchase. Best lip balm ever, period.) Laura Mercier Artist's Palette (I agree with the hype on this palette, and I'm in love with African Violet, which you can purchase separately) Art of Shaving Starter Kit (One of the Black Friday $10 deal for my boyfriend ) So, what's on your wish list--and on your vanity--this December?
Hi girls! So I ordered quite a few of the $10 steals and I thought it would be fun for us to write up mini review on them for each other. Mine arrived last night, so I've only tried two so far. Eyeko Mascara/Eyeliner (still available) I was SO excited to try the Eyeko Skinny Eyeliner.... and it wasn't very pigmented. Maybe it is a little dry and I need to shake it up (??) and try again tomorrow. I'll report back. I haven't tried the mascara yet but the wand is very unique. http://www.sephora.com/skinny-mini-duo-P377021?sku Id=1470962 Caudalie Hand Cream and Lip Conditioner Duo (sold out- individual links below) I had been wanting to try the lip conditioner and I constantly use hand lotion so this was perfect for me. The lip conditioner is very smooth and smells nice. The hand lotion smells sooooo good (sort of citrusy?) and my hands feel lovely! What do you guys think of your $10 sets? http://www.sephora.com/lip-conditioner-P6034?skuId =241653 http://www.sephora.com/h-nail-cream-P152203?skuId= 941609
Okay...here's the deal. It's time for me to make room for baby stuff for the new addition coming in April (Yippeee!!!!). I decided to take a look at everything I have but don't use anymore--and I have quite a few things. Most of the things I have and dont' use are because I love the products but my sensative skin won't allow me to use them. Here's my list: Bare Minerals eye shadows in: onyx (liner), mystery, denim, sugar plum and masquerade Buxom shimmer shadows in Beagle and Pug Make Up Forever Aqua Creme Shadows in Aqua Black and Shade 54 Sephora Shadows in midnight kiss, caroline's pride and armelle Bare Minerals Foundation in Fairly Medium, mineral veil and warmth make Up Forever HD Liquid Foundation in N130 (I think that's the sade number--it's a medium/light shade) VS Pro Bronzing Face Primer VS Tinted Moisturizer/Primer Delux Samples of: Sephora pin-up pink lip gloss (still in wrapper) Sephora Instant Moisturizer (never used) Kat Von D Powder Foundation in Medium 54 9Still in wrapper) Smashbox under eye primer (opened, but not used) Products that have been used: boscia clear complexion tonic Sephora Waterproof eye makeup remover Murad exfoliating acne treatment gel and spot treatment Boscia BB cream Fragrances--Full size bottle, most of them barely used: Georgio Armani Acqua di Dioia 1oz bottle and 3.4 oz bottle Ibiza Sol Urban Flowers Paris Urban Flowers London Pur Blanca- Blossom Just Play Philosophy You are Divine Philosophy Love Sweet Love U by Ungaro for her (Four 1.7 oz bottles, still in wrapper)--I love this stuff, but it doesn't love me back :-( Skin So soft Satin Glow Glow Gel (seven 6.7 oz bottle, still sealed) Full Size mark mascara in jet black Few misc eyeshadow colors and lotions Some of the products are used! I know that they are clean and all that...I never use my fingers for dipping into my make-up and I'm not including anything that is not hygenic...like used mascara! And...I'm giving all this away to whoever wants it. If you want it, PM me. but there are a few rules...I'm giving this away because I hope someone can use this stuff. I don't want any trouble and I won't be liable for anything--not that I'm not 100% confident that all these products are perfectly good and all that, but I don't want someone trying to sue me cause one of the lotions made them break out...ok. I'll ship to anywhere in the US, adn I'd like to get this to the post office on Thursday when I go mail out my Christmas presents. I will package everything very carefully and put anything liquid in ziploc bags. But I can't be responsible for any damage that might happen during shipping. I really, seriously just want to give this stuff to someone that can use it, without any trouble. And if there is anything about this post that is against the rules or guidelines, please let me know! I read through them and didn't see anything that would be, but I don't want to be banned from the most awesome forum ever!
UPDATE: This might actually just be a leftover VIB bag .... sorry ladies!!! I felt so lucky today when I randomly went to a SiJCP and they were handing out the SUSPENSE mystery bags! It was really exciting to actually get a promo in-store, feels like it's been FOREVER since that happened to me. The UD liner is Uzi and the MUFE is 01 (black).
Ladies, after the Great Vibtopia Sellout of 2013, everyone who missed out on the Laura Mercier Artist's Palette (including me) was saddened. It came back in stock BRIEFLY, and the sad population shrank, but alas...some people (again, including me) were left empty-handed. Imagine my surprise (and delight) when I saw 7 (Yes, SEVEN!) palettes behind the display, waiting to be snatched up by some lucky buyer...on Black Friday, no less!! As I've mentioned elsewhere on BT, I convinced myself I didn't need it, as I JUST got my Naked3 in the mail the other day. Too much shade overlap with that and my other shadows, I mused. HA! I clearly have less self-control than I thought. African Violet was calling my name...as was the beautifully pebbled exterior of the palette... If you want to snag one of the six that were left after I picked mine up (today circa 2PM) RUN to Sephora on Lexington bet. 58th and 59th in NYC! ...I know I needed the exercise after last night (p.s. it is SO good to come home for Thanksgiving...fellow college students, am I right or am I right?!) Sorry the photo's tilted! I was too excited when I took it...and too hasty in alerting you guys!
Yes, that was the best I can come up with, but between the Blitz bag promo, the 20% off and the Black Friday, it's a pretty bad month for your wallet, lol. Happy birthday to the November babies! In addition to Sephora, don't forget to take advantage of the numerous b-day offerings everywhere else (sometimes it take a few days after signing up to get the offer): http://community.sephora.com/t5/Beauty-Insider/Bir thday-Gifts-and-Promos-from-Cosmetic-Companies/td- ... And of course, before you place an order, don't forget to check Missie and Rikkie's hardwork that will rob you of all your points and will power : http://community.sephora.com/t5/VIB/Active-List-of -100-250-and-500-Point-Perks-3/td-p/752167 http://community.sephora.com/t5/VIB/ACTIVE-PROMO-C ODES-6/td-p/716785 Ahhh I can't wait to see the Blitz bags, I really hope they didn't sub out the 2 things I really really wanted. I placed plenty of order in Oct but only half came, so the rest will go in the Nov board I suppose. Can't wait until the 20% off next week! So, what did you guys get?
Hello everyone (: I was looking for a thread on here about sales going on, not only on Sephora but on other websites or stores. I personally like to look for good deals on makeup since I am constantly trying to build up my collection. I thought I would make a thread where we could all post what sales we know or have heard about in stores or online, include any great codes for deals or even products with great prices.
Of course since I am starting it, I thought I would post a couple that I have been looking into.
This is a flash deal website that has awesome deals that are constantly changing, hence the flash deals Today until friday, they have some awesome deals on Tarte products, so check it out if interested!
Right now, tarte is having a discovery sale with items like the Maracuja miracle foundation for $21.00 instead of $42. There are also two eyeshadow palettes on there for $26 each.
I love their shadows! They have three nice color selection palettes to choose from online ranging from $16-$19.
One last item that is not on sale but I consider a great deal is the lorac glogetter palette! It is exclusively sold at ulta for $20! I am definitely getting that soon.
You guys I am so excited! I have been waiting all day since I got this to tell you guys, but my phone does not like BT for some reason. Anyway, I stopped by the SiJCP where I live to see if there was anything good on the clearance rack, and on my way out I stopped to look at the Showstopper brush set which was on the bottom shelf fairly removed from the Sephora area, and when I stood back up lo and behold I saw this... Mr. Husband bought it as soon as he saw my face, what a sweetie. (So sweet it will just make you sick!) And he isn't even making me save it for Christmas. I was so excited, I have wanted this since it came out but something was always coming up and I never ended up getting it, and then it sold out on the UD website... Long story short I had just resigned myself to the fate of not having it, and there it was on a shelf where it had no reason to be all by itself. The packaging has some scuffs, you can tell its been in the back room for awhile, but the palette is all shiny and pristine. I am so happy and I just wanted to share it with you all! Also I went to the M.A.C. counter for the first time. Not terribly impressed. XD I did finally get to feel the brushes in person which was what I wanted, The sales ladies acted like I wasn't there, so yea. Could have at least said hi, even if I look like I took a wrong turn on my way back to the trailer park. All the other ladies at the other cosmetic counters were nice though. Also, I think I hit the Red Zone (aka Rouge)... Scaaaaaaaary.
Hold on to your wallets! The OH Ole La La Glow From Head To Toe Blockbuster Set is on sale on the OH website for $20 off today making it $59. There are other gift sets on sale as well. There's a code 100GIFTBAG for a free goodie bag worth $100 and orders over $50 ship free. You also get 4% back if you go through eBates. You have been warned
I love all the palettes and sets coming out and at this point my wishlist is getting a little crazy so I think its time to narrow it down! I tried to pair up similar sets and I could really use your input with regards to formula quality and colors. Im sort of celebrating xmas and my bday early (very early since I'm a Dec baby) so I can spread out my holiday spending a little more, but I'd like to limit myself to 150. Hitting Sephora Wednesday with your suggestions. Here goes: LIPS: vs Bite Best Bite Set ($25) vs Tarte Pure Delights ($34) vs Buxom Serial Kisser ($32) vs Kat Von D Spellbinding lipstick set ($39) Eyes: vs vs KVD Spellbinding Eyeshadow book ($55) vs Too Faced A few of my fav things ($56) vs. Urban Decay Vice 2 ($59) Thanks!

My stylist told me I needed to get a T3. I've been interested but haven't been able to swing it. Well, the previous version showed up on Haute so I got it for a great price plus snagged the two Lorac Little Lace palettes too. ('Cause I need more shadows, lol.) I figure if nothing else, $8 is a good price point for a cute little holiday gift for a friend.
During my VIBTOPIA haul, I somehow decided to save the Lancome Bi-facil eye makeup remover ($28) and Comforting Rehydrating toner ($25) for the $20 off $50. Hmm.. actually think the toner was OOS when I wanted to buy it. Anyway, after seeing this Lancome set from the Black Friday thread started by dannyc containing the full-size Bi-facil, I knew I had to get it! The set is $59.50 with purchase, and I was going to purchase the Comforting toner anyway... that was pretty much how I justified spending more money after the crazy VIBTOPIA sale =/ I have never tried any Lancome makeup before so I am super excited and want to share with my fellow BT-ers! Here is the beautiful red box it comes in... I'll probably keep it to store my stash of tissue boxes and cotton pads. The train case has a soft and smooth leathery feel. Oh and let's not forget the cute little zippers. The top compartment was empty. This case is surprisingly spacious! Here I added a Naked palette for size reference. The inside lining has this lovely satin-like feel. The bottom compartment stored all the goodies! *ahhhhh moment* It comes with a little guidebook that shows you suggestions of what you can use in the set to create a classic day look and a night look. The Lancome La vie est belle perfume leaflet was just an ad. This is how deep the second compartment is. Another view of the goodies with some of my makeup for color reference. The Madison Avenue eyeshadow (shimmery dark brown) is just slightly warmer than Naked2's YDK and the Latte eyeshadow (matte milky) is like Naked2's Bootycall but matte. The Kitten Heel eyeshadow is pink, shimmery and pairs well with the Sheer Amourose blush. This Sheer Amourose blush is similar to Benefit's Dandelion (little sample shown). The Pink to the Club lipstick is shimmery goldish pink and I think would pair well with the Nars Orgasm blush. Love this! The Sugared Maple lipstick is a very slightly darker shade than the Nars Dolce Vita blush. The Simmer lip gloss or the Black Coffee pencil eyeliner don't really capture my fancy this moment, so, ehh. I have so many tiny Definicils mascara samples and love them. Now the question is, should I chug along and try to use up my mascara samples or open this new fancy tube and test the actual full-size brush? The brushes' bristles are soft and looks sturdy. The brushes are huge though -- The All-Over Shadow brush area is half the size of my closed eyelid. Here is the rest of my order. The Comforting toner I bought, and a whole bunch of samples (use codes BEAUTY, LOVE and BONUS). 3 minis of my beloved Bi-facil! I have never written any post this long before LOL. Hope this will help all you out there debating whether to get it! PS: Ironic that I made my purchase after testing a sample given by Sephora, but due to the meh-ness of the Rouge program, I don't particularly try to be loyal to Sephora with my beauty purchases anymore. Okay, end of story before I turn this turns into another rouge sad-face post.

I love, love, love reading about everyone's hauls and seeing them. I don't know why, as, I want most of the things you guys get after I've seen them and realized they're not in my collection. I guess I'm a bit of a makeup masochist! Here's what I got, over the course of two orders. (Don't even ask what I've gotten these past few months even before the 20% off sale was on! Haha.) http://www.sephora.com/pro-palette-P374709?skuId=1 432384 http://www.sephora.com/rouge-volupte-shine-P377710 ?skuId=1484880 http://www.sephora.com/airbrush-finish-bamboo-foun dation-brush-P302919?skuId=1393628 http://www.sephora.com/n-28-primer-serum-P309504?s kuId=1420652 http://www.sephora.com/emphaseyes-waterproof-clay- shadow-liner-P262304?skuId=1226620 http://www.sephora.com/full-cover-concealer-P15110 7?skuId=1247204 http://www.sephora.com/brow-wiz-P202633?skuId=1056 084 http://www.sephora.com/24-7-glide-on-lip-pencil-P2 19001?skuId=1531706 http://www.sephora.com/naked2-P302916?skuId=139363 6 and, of course, some samples. Quick notes on my purchases: I actually purchased the Pro palette on Ulta cause it's OOS here; I got a great deal that Sephora used to have (well, a similar one, at least.) You get the palette, a Lorac liner and a deluxe sample-sized eye primer for $39! Here's the link: http://www.ulta.com/ulta/browse/productDetail.jsp? productId=xlsImpprod5920336 Colors: YSL lippy in 5 Fuschia in Excess, Tarte liner in black, MUFE concealer in Pink Porcelain 1, Brow Wiz in Brunette, UD liner in Anarchy SO excited to read your posts
I am really getting into Stila and have this great haul I just received. Everything from the skincare line was included in the order free. Three brushes, three eye shadow palettes, two separate shadows, a cream blush set and a coral blush, lip glaze and black crayon eyeliner. I also got the Stila Masterpiece Cheek and Eye set here at Sephora and highly recommend it - I love purples and browns and the set has many shades of each to choose from!! And for $36 it's a really good deal. (You can see the scale of it in my eye stash post in "Beauty Confessions".)
I signed up for emails at the First Aid Beauty website on Sunday and they sent me a 40% off coupon. Yep, you read that right 40%. I just placed and order for myself and some gifts for Christmas and got $70 off plus a free full size oatmeal mask, 1oz. ultra repair cream, and free shipping to boot. I don't know how long they're doing it but worth signing up for sure.
Since we are all BBFFs, I thought it was a nice idea to have a haul thread each month and have ppl's bday here. Post new additions to your stash! And happy birthday to October BBFFs! Birthdays! Candacebt Oct 6th Moregun89 Oct 8th Ashley (baby dearest of waterbaby1981, turning 1 this yr, aww) Oct 9th Jenpred Oct 15th Wendyomgwar Oct 29th Halloween Oct 31st ps. Haven't gotten anything yet but have some minis from BBFF trading coming my way, does that count? lol. I will be placing an order once I figure out which clay mask I want to try next.
I know that I'm readily preparing my list for the upcoming sale, and I thought that I would share it with you all. And instead of listing my entire loves list as I have done for several months, I decided to save 3 hours and just list the items that I will buy as soon as I get a notification. Tarte Glamazon Lipstick in Playful http://www.sephora.com/glamazon-pure-performance-1 2-hour-lipstick-P375344?skuId=1437193 Stila Stay All Day Eyeliner in Black http://www.sephora.com/stay-all-day-waterproof-liq uid-eye-liner-P253818?skuId=1221084 MJB Lipstick in Neo-Noir http://www.sephora.com/lovemarc-lip-gel-P379423?sk uId=1510817 Hourglass Liquid Lipstick in Icon http://www.sephora.com/opaque-rouge-liquid-lipstic k-P375384?skuId=1439405 Urban Decay 24/7 Lip Pencil in Ozone http://www.sephora.com/24-7-glide-on-lip-pencil-P2 19001?skuId=1105105 MJB Nail Polishes in Gatsby and Secret Love http://www.sephora.com/enamored-hi-shine-nail-lacq uer-P380707?skuId=1510965 I really wish that I could show specific colors using rich linking, anyone else? Oh well, I still think it's pretty cool, even if I don't think I did it right! So tell me, what's on your wish list? Please share, and also let me know if you've tried any of the products on my wish list
Oh Sephora, you tempt me so. I spent the last hour doing a cost/benefit analysis of ordering and getting the bag but paying for shipping ( where is my flash offer??) and missing out on the 20% discount, and trying to hit as close to $25 as possible while getting something else I would use (of course everything on my list is $22 or $45+) without jacking up my total too much. My math teachers would be so proud. For the record, I decided that the Holly Jolly bag was worth the additional $11.95 spent (though I am still waffling on whether I should have gone with another nail color rather than the Sephora makeup wipes). My Libra brain is fried . No more ordering until the 20% sale! [Unless the Cinderella compact mirror comes back in stock. Then I'm throwing some elbows. ]
So say you had $65 to get to Rouge (theoretically speaking of course ) which of the following conveniently priced items from my Loves List would you grab? - I feel like the Boyfriend set really isn't a great value but I do want it. - Edward Bess "Over the Moon" palette. So pretty. - Aromachologie "Totally Edible". I haven't smelled this but I loved Jo Malone's Bitter Orange and Chocolate and was only able to get my hands on a sample. This has both orange and chocolate and I'm hoping it smells similar. Or, if you have other suggestions I'm all ears!
They've got brands mentioned here featured one a day for the coming week. If I remember properly, the list is: Sunday 9/30: LORAC Monday 10/1: Stila Tuesday 10/2: Koh Gen Do Wednesday 10/3: TheBalm Thursday 10/4: Urban Decay Friday 10/5: Tarina Tarantino Saturday 10/6: China Glaze This could be seriously dangerous. Now I need to forget about this. If you, however, have not been there before, feel free to PM me for an invite (and I'm sure lots of others could do the same.). You have been enabled.
