Hey gift bag haulers-I know you are out there! If you are like me and feel compelled to purchase every department store and boutique gift bag event, this is the place to share your info, pictures, decisions, reviews and more. I just went for the Bergdorf Goodman Be Beautiful bag and will post my picture down below in a little bit. There are more of these GWP bags coming up and I would love to discuss your favorites, what the gifts bags have or will contain. I even have the idea that we could possible negotiate swaps between the gift bags and potentially go in to share a bag (split the gift and $250 purchase) for example..Lots to discuss!   Dates-please post any info that you get and I will try to update   Neiman Marcus Beauty Event February 11th 2016- gift with purchase, gifts and buy in TBA   Space NK- TBA I believe it is coming up in February   Barney's Gift bag- February/March (there is already a thread for this specific event, so just mentioning it)   Let's gift it up!!!

If you see something awesome in the Sephora sales section, let us know. Sometimes items sell out quickly, so they get buried in other threads. Even if I check multiple times a day (and I sometimes do), you may check at a different time and find stock on items I missed (and vice versa). It seems like stock is often updated around 9am Pacific, but that is not always a given.   If you find something on sale not listed in the sales section, please list that here as well. Share your Easter Eggs with us. Thanks!

I didn't see a February Haul thread...and it is February.  So, since I'm up early I decided to start one.  Romance is in the air, so hauls for you or others count.  Can't wait to see what you have found and hauled!

Welcome back to the deal sharing fun! Deals shared here may also be posted to my blog (same name as the thread) unless you write for BT only. If I share your deal, I will always thank you here. I will heart every deal I see without an outside link to acknowledge it. A heart with no comment means I already have the deal or am deciding not to list it. Thanks for sharing. Repeats are always welcome, so if you're unsure if something was previously posted, post it. People who may have missed it the first time could see the second posting. Don't forget to list the retailer, so everyone knows where to get your deal. If you're posting about something on sale at Sephora, share it here. http://community.sephora.com/t5/Hauls/Sephora-Sale s-Section-Get-it-Now/m-p/2122832#M44949

I've been on the Ipsy waiting list, but still look at the thread. I thought we could have a shared thread from all the subscription boxes (including non-beauty ones likes underpants and lifestyle such as Wantable and POPSugar). That way we can live vicariously through each others goodies!   (I know there are unboxing videos on YouTube, but I do not have the patience to sit through a five minute video about someone apologizing for the state of their hair. And I know there are blogs where I can see photos, but everyone usually gets different items in their boxes)

Giorgio_Armani_Year_of_the_Monkey_Face_Palette_2016.jpg
I am a Monkey, and it is the Year of the Monkey. I've been searching for any beauty products that represent the monkey but have not had much luck. Anyone know of any? I saw the thread about creating makeup looks for the zodiac signs, but I am specifically looking for beauty products that print the monkey in the packaging or powders.

This Box is Closed!  There are 14 confirmed participants. I will probably start this around mid to late February. I will post the box contents and the planned start date about a week before I ship to give everyone a chance to specify if the start date or contents require them to shuffle. Once everyone is comfortable in their spot, we will exchange addresses. Your official spot will be confirmed once I and the person in front of you has your address.   The waitlist (for possible future rounds) on this box is open to deal lovers who regularly contribute to the Deals Too Good to Pass Up Thread . I know some people are faster at sharing deals, so even those who contribute to conversations (I love reading the conversations almost as much as the deals) without posting deals are eligible. It does not matter if you're relatively new to the boards or trades (I am not looking at hearts or posting history) as long as you're active in the thread.   I'd like to consider this one a deal box. Regardless of how you came upon the deal (subscription box, kit, GWP, purchased it, etc) or what size it is (foil, deluxe, full-size, etc), it is ok as long as it is new.      Guidelines   Spoiler (Highlight to read) If you have contributed often, I will know who you are. I read all the main posts and most of the sub-posts. If I do not know who you are or you have not contributed enough, I will not hold a spot for you. My intent is to have a box where deal lovers share items they do not want with people who may have helped them score a deal at one time or another. If you have not discussed deals with others, there are a number of other boxes open right now.   Round one will be US only. If we have a round two, I will start the box in Canada as long as one of the Canadian members is willing to ship it back to US. Between Rounds, I will remove items people in the next round are not interested in (by posting and giving them three days to ask for what we keep inside) to make space in the box. I will either hold the items here until the end of all rounds and take them for donation then or take them after each round depending on what everyone prefers.    New items only unless you have a used or swatched item someone behind you is interested in. Make sure you post the possible item to the open board and wait for someone in the box to express interest before including it. I am donating to Shade Tree (a shelter for abused women and children) in Las Vegas, and they only accept new items. Please do not open or swatch anything you are not planning on taking. If you swatch it and see it is not for you, trade for it anyway. Hopefully, you can trade it with someone willing to take used items.   All new items are welcome from drugstore to high-end, because I've received all levels in kits, subscription boxes, GWP, and more. Trades should be fair. Try to swap in the same category: foil for foil, deluxe for deluxe, full-size for full-size, drugstore for drugstore, mid-range for mid-range, and high-end for high-end. Exceptions can be made for unicorns or trading a full-size item from a lower category for a deluxe. Example: if you take a deluxe mid range cream worth about $7, you can place a new, full-sized drugstore foundation worth $7-$10. They are short specifically on foundation, so I would prefer to see that whenever possible.  Only full-size items need a value placed on them when adding or removing to make sure anyone who removes them matches or exceeds their value. Deluxe samples and foils will not be valued unless the item is sold in deluxe/travel size like a Dual ended Bite Lipstick or 0.5oz GlamGlow, Exfolikate, etc. If the item is not sold in that size, trade it for a similar item.    While I do not personally like the idea of signing off on a trade, I think everyone should post their trades (with pictures and descriptions of the ins and outs), and give the other box participants 24 hours to bring any objections. If no one has any, your trade is approved and you are free to ship out. As such, members should check in once a day to have their voice heard. I think three business days with the box is fair, so I would appreciate anyone who needs longer send me and the person behind him/her a pm if s/he cannot send it by the end of the third day.   We will start with a medium USPS box, and I hope it never gets bigger than a large USPS box. You get $50 of free ins this way, so it is my preferred shipping method. If you choose not to ship through USPS, please check with the person you're shipping to first. If they are not home when the box arrives, they may want to coordinate another shipping address. Regardless of shipping method, a tracking number is required and must be shared either publicly to the thread or privately to me and the recipient.    Everyone should provide their name and address to the person in front of them and copy me on that pm, so I can have it as well.    I like the spreadsheet idea to track what is in the box, so I will probably ask everyone to add and remove their items to a Google Doc.   There is no specific buy-in per se, but I think all trades should be more valuable than what you're taking out. That way, the charity wins. Duplicates are okay (within reason). This box is going to charity, and some items may be welcome to multiple recipients. I'd rather not see 5 of the same item (unless it is foundation) or even 3 if the item is large.    If you are interested in round 2 (whether you were in round 1 or not), I can add Canadians to guaranteed spots (assuming someone is willing to ship back to the US) and Americans to waitlisted spots. If you have contributed often, I will know who you are. I read all the main posts and most of the sub-posts. If I do not know who you are or you have not contributed enough, I will not hold a spot for you.

US spots full. Canadian spots open to those on the good trades list.   Starts March 1st.    UPDATES: Finalized pictures and list of starting items are posted.  List of guidelines is now posted.   Guidelines: Spoiler (Highlight to read) Trade items that are equal in value and brand quality or better. For example, Dior for Guerlain would be a good trade, as would Too Faced for Tarte. Do not trade Dior for Tarte. Do not take more than you put in. Please ensure your trade is adding value to the box. Trade full sized items for full sized items. If a full size item you’d like to add is over 8oz or is bulky, share it with the group prior to your trades to gauge interest. If someone is interested in this item, it may be included. Consider keeping the box balanced. If there are a lot of skincare items, add items from a different category if you’re able to. Do not take all of one category from the box. For example, do not take all the palettes or masks. If you’re not sure if an item is appropriate, post the item and ask the group. Do not include duplicate items unless there is specific interest. Allowed in the box:   Spoiler (Highlight to read) Mid to high end products (think brands sold at Sephora, The Bay, Nordstrom, etc). Tools/Brushes/Cases/Bags as long as they are clean Anything that is sealed (as long as it fits with the other guidelines) Skin care items in tubes & bottles. Jars only allowed if it's sealed or unopened Perfume and nail polish can be added if there is a specific interest in it only.  These items require extra padding and have a greater risk of breaking, so I'd love to keep them at a minimum. Items will be organized in bags by type. Make sure products are wrapped well so they won't leak or break & ruin everything else Keep non-beauty related items to a minimum (please do not overload the box with makeup bags, cases, etc). Packaging & Shipping Spoiler (Highlight to read) All participants must provide a tracking number for their shipment, posted to the thread upon receipt. Package things carefully (bubble wrap or tissue paper if possible) and put things in labeled Ziploc bags. Try to leave the TSB in better condition than you found it Items that are more fragile (like perfume bottles) should be bubble wrapped individually Every item needs to be inside a plastic bag/Ziploc Calculating Values: Spoiler (Highlight to read) New items : full price Clearance items : full original price unless they are long-term residents of the clearance section (i.e. OCC lip tars in original packaging) Used 1x or swatched : 90% value (original price x 0.90) Lightly used : 80% value (original price x 0.80)  This applies when an item was used more than once but at least 90% of the product is remaining. Deluxe samples : calculate based off largest size available of said product. For example, if a deluxe sample is 0.5oz, and the full size is 2 oz and worth $60, then the deluxe sample is worth $15.    These must be new, untested, unswatched. Courtesies: Spoiler (Highlight to read) Don't put in anything unsanitary! (any product that you “dunk” a wand into or you dip your fingers into (like lip gloss or mousse blush) if they’re not new and unused. These cannot be sanitized.  Same thing goes for rollerballs. Post a picture and write info of what you took and left, with their condition and value – this way members can weigh in on the trades before shipping Include close up, open photos of any items that will be sealed that you cannot see the color through. This includes lipsticks, palettes, blushes, etc. No reserving items in the box for others and don’t ask to have any items reserved for you - this is unfair to others participating Don't swatch items from the box - this is a hygienic precaution that we must take as a lot of people will be handling these items Swatched/used items must be labeled as such. All opened items must be cleaned/sanitized prior to their addition to the box Sanitizing consists of spraying the item with a makeup sanitizer, or making your own with half parts 70% alcohol and water. Try not to put in LARGE full sized items, like large bottles over 8 oz. This box becomes very full, making it is harder for the person repacking and forces them to take something they may not want or use. Exceptions can be made if someone really wants the item Must post photos of all swaps and wait for approval from the thread before sending the box to the next recipient. The box coordinator and 50% of participants should give the OK for your trade. Give the group 24 hours to review your trades and provide feedback.  Please contribute mid to high-end beauty products only. No drugstore items. If you have questions or you are unsure of an item, ask!

As much fun as I have had with themed boxes, I would really love to do another ELF where we go back to the original idea of trading local items with each other.  If I were to start one, would people be into it?  Or would someone else like to start one?   Just something I've been thinking about recently...

Hey guys! As my first post I decided to make a thread about the amazing beauty deals and Nordstrom Rack. I just went to Nordstrom Rack yesterday and they had a bunch of Too Faced and Stila items as well as a couple Urban Decay items! I thought that it would be a fun idea to show you guys the deals I got and I encourage anyone who wants to do the same   Everything that i got at Nordstrom Rack yesterday were Too Faced products, and let me tell you, the deals were great! These are the products I decided to pick up...   Bonjour Soleil Palette - $44.00 $16.97 - Chocolate Soleil .14 oz - Sun Bunny .14 oz - Snow Bunny .11 oz - Flatbuki Brush   La Creme Lip Cream - $22.00 $5.97 - in Cinnamon Kiss   All I want for Christmas Set - $45.00  $19.97 - Makeup Bag - Perfect Eyes Eyeliner .03 oz - Eye Shadow and Blush Compact .28 oz - Lash Injection Mascara .25 oz - Shadow Insurance Eye Shadow Primer .35 oz - La Creme Lip Cream in Believe .11 oz   Natural at Night Palette - $36.00 $14.97  
I'm looking to get a haul from Memebox... I was kindly given a 20% referral link from this board. I am going to get the Benton box for sure, as I like their essence, but does anyone else have any Asian products they can't live without?

I'm curious what everyone has their sights on as the most urgently needed (or "needed") beauty item for the new year. I'm thinking I will place an order from Herbivore Botanicals direct in January or February for a few items I have been lusting after. I now realize I should not have browsed their website though, because I have found more things to add to the list.   Here are the pretty little luxuries at the top of my list:   Spoiler (Highlight to read) "Maybes": "Maybes":

  I pulled the trigger and bought one of the Beautylish Lucky Bags....  LOL!  I know this has "disappointment" written all over but I'm hoping that in the worst case scenario I'll at least be able to ebay the stuff and break even... right?!   I saw the "makeup artist" bag last year and I really liked what they had.  I totally want one of those RCMA palettes!  This year, there was no option for selecting what kind of bag you wanted.  Just a generic bag option... which I think is worse than being able to choose from one of three.  Although last year, they included glitter in the "natural" bag and I think everyone can agree that's a big WTF moment.     Post if you went against your better judgment and bought one of these!  Hahah!  I'll come back and share the contents of my "Lucky bag" the first/second week in January when I get.     BTW, I choose the "hauls" forum for this thread but it looks like the forum is stuck in the "Acne" section.    
**IGNORE TITLE TYPO**   Naturally, your first stop would be a (mini*) shopping spree at Sephora.   What are your items you've been coveting on that wish list that you would buy immediately since you now have million?    And then after the initial sephora spree, what would you do with the rest of the money?  ------------- At my sephora spree I would definitely invest in some nice skin care stuff (especially from Tatcha)  I figure no matter how much money I have, plastic surgery won't be as effective as preventative skincare routine.    And then splurge on some Nars Lipstick.   After my sephora shopping spree, I would pay off the new Jeep Cherokee I just bought this past holiday, make a rough estimate of how many piano lessons, ballet & tap lessons, food, clothing, medical expenses, allowances, SAT tutor classes, college tuition, rent that my parents have paid for over the years and pay them back. Not like my parents would ever expect me to pay me back, or would let me pay them back if I worked hard for my money and slowly saved to pay them back. But I figure, with the easy money that came along with winning the lottery, it's the least I can do. My parents have always done very well and money isn't too much of a concern, they just bought a new $88K Mercedes even though they've been retired for over 5 years. But they are getting old, and I would definitely give them a big fat check as a small gesture of appreciation for everything they've ever done for me.    After that, I'd offer to pay for my brother's wedding. He's had a lot of heath issues over the year and just got diagnosed with a non curable disease. He's also bailed me out many times whenever I got myself in trouble and didn't want to tell my parents.   And then with the rest of the remaining money I would move myself into a nicer one bedroom apartment (so over having a roommate), pay off my credit card debts and then the rest I would put in a trust so I can save on taxes and not be tempted to pretend to be a baller and live a grossly lavish lifestyle...   So all in all, pretty much help my parents and brother out, and splurge on rent and some nice makeup.    Maybe finally throw out some old clothes i've been holding on to because im too cheap to throw out perfectly good clothes (even if I never wear them) and then upgrade the rest of my closet to match my actual style      Let me know if you guys have any special plans for if you won the lottery (hey doesn't hurt to dream!)     
I was browsing the Sephora Australia site (Sephora.com.au) since Sephora coming to Australia was a huuuuuuge deal because Australia is severely limited when it comes to cosmetics. I was curious to see what kind of products Sephora would be carrying.   I saw Sigma -- interesting, but Sigma is pretty mid-end. The Balm -- sure, Sephora used to carry that in the states. Then I saw Sleek -- hilarious! Sleek is a UK drugstore brand. Sephora sells Sleek palettes for $22 -- they're available on the Sleek website for about 13 bucks shipped (I ordered some the last time I was in Aus).   Also...WetnWild! $15 a palette! Jeebus.   It made me think of how interesting/odd/total-bullcrap it is how brands are marketed one way in one country and another way in another country. Like Rawsauce -- how it's pretty cheap overseas but considered "prestige" in the US. Klorane is drugstore in Australia (it sat next to Batiste and was about $1 more expensive) and yet in the US I can get Batiste for $6 but Klorane is $20.   A lot of the time it irritates me because I feel like brands/retailers use consumers ignorance against them. Like I can just imagine someone going to Sephora and dropping $15 on a wetnwild palette and I just want to tackle them and be like NOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO here have one of mine -- I bought them for $3 or less!!
I don't have a sephora near me, unless I want to drive an hr away. I've been getting into makeup and skin care lately and I like trying out new stuff.   However, UPS doesn't bother knocking on my door so instead they just directly deliver to my apartment complex front office. Whenever I pick up a package the front office always make a comment or their tone of voice makes me self conscious for ordering as often from sephora as I do...    are there any alternatives to shipping somewhere else other than renting a PO box?    I've heard that sometimes you can address the package to your local USPS store and have it in your name and you just show ID to pick it up. But I don't know how often I can do that if I order online a lot...    Any recommendations?

I thought this might be a fun thread to start, since we're less than a month away from the new year!! What are your beauty-related new years resolutions?? Here, I'll start- I want to try to use up as many products as I can (without wasting them) instead of purchasing and opening new stuff! I'd love to use up the 40someodd LUSH masks I have in my freezer (worked there for 2 years). I'm making this my resolution since I graduate from college in May and hope to be getting a place of my own in the new year, and I don't want to have boxes and boxes full of products to move!   What are yours? I'm excited to hear them!!

I got this palette last week and now I'm wondering why this brand wasn't really on my radar before.  I have Mary and Betty Lou-manizer but I hadn't tried anything else from The Balm until I got this palette.  Now I can't seem to put it down!  Since I got it I've done my whole face with it every day.  So I'm wondering what other great products I've been missing.  Any fans out there?

Hello All,   I'm looking for some inspiration on how to use the 20% off Ulta coupon. Who has already used theirs, and what did you get, or what are you planning to get? Since Ulta carries a range of products at a variety of price points, any suggestions are welcome! I find Ulta's website not too user friendly, and anytime I go to the store I feel like I'm being assaulted by the SA's in the high end section, so unfortunately browsing Ulta's products is more stressful than it should be, which is why I'm turning here.    Thanks!

Feeling sad that the November sales are over? I know we have BF/Cyber Monday deals to look forward too as well. But since we have to wait for the preview yet (I believe this Friday via the Sephora to Go app) I thought we could get excited about December!   Tell us below what you plan to get in December? Maybe one item you missed out this month on with the sale? Maybe a mini haul?! A regret you are still lusting over? Do tell......   =D   For myself, I maybe plan to get a Viseart palette or an Hourglass Powder (would be my first one ever) and hopefully just leave it at that. Just one of an item that I have been wanting forever and I will wait it out for December to get it! Maybe even an impulse buy, who knows...
