Hello beauties! I always love seeing everyone's magical hauls, especially holiday hauls! Can't wait to see all your goodies! I'll post mine mine as I receive them! First batch! I'm excited to get my hands on holiday goodies soon too!
Hi fellow beauty insiders Have you gals ever ordered from elf cosmetics online? If so, how long did it take for you to get your order? I recently ordered from their website when they had the 50% off sale and the shipping seems to be taking FOREVER. I was wondering about your shipping experience
Since there are a lot of threads where we can show off our purchases or wishlists, I thought we could use a thread to talk about gifts for our friends and families! (& don't forget your pets!) What will you be gifting this year? My list thus far: Spoiler (Highlight to read) For my boyfriend: - A fluffy robe - A ring by Thomas Sabo - Leather bracelet (Thomas Sabo) - Viktor & Rolf Spicebomb - Roots hoodie - Motorcycle headset My dad: - Targets (to shoot at with his BB gun) - Getting an old photo of him enhanced and framed - A personalized jar of Nutella For mom: - David's Tea "Bear Trap" tea - A book - Pandora charm For my cat : - Shark bed Bf's mom - Dragon Egg (from Green Earth) Bf's sister #1 - Bite Discovery Set I also need to find gifts for my bf's other sister and his father. Hopefully I can get some inspiration from others in this thread.

I can't believe it took me so long to start this thread -- I usually have started scoping the deals in September! But come one, come all, join the excitement of the weekend and let us know what deals you find!
And with that - it's actually October! It's finally starting to feel like Fall, and I'm excited to start using all of those Hiliday items that have been out since, pretty much summer . Also - Happy Birthday to any fellow October babies! This year is Dirty 30 for me, and after a sinful September for me, I may have to spend most of this month admiring your hauls rather than sharing my own :x ETA: I'm having a bit of insomnia and was surprised not to see an October Hauls thread already. If I missed it in my bleary eyed state - please let me know
EDIT: This is the email I just received: Dear Valued Beauty Insider, We recently sent you a package directly from Kat Von D, which includes a Vegan Makeup Bag, a Tattoo Liner in Trooper and an Ink Liner in Trooper. This was sent as an apology for the experience you may have had with the 750 point Kat Von D coffin reward you recently redeemed, which many clients found to be disappointing in quality. We hope you enjoy this set of full sized products! Regards, Sephora Community Support Team ****** Yesterday evening UPS dropped off a black t-shirt style box at my door. I had no idea who it was from and I was not expecting any deliveries. This is my version of unboxing: 1. Just the tissue paper/before the reveal 2. The reveal/ It is a KVD looking clutch of sorts 3. Inside are two full size Eyeliners! Color me both surprised and impressed. I was definitely not expecting this gratis token/gift and I am pleasantly surprised! Hopefully other BTers will report that they have received one as well. Yeah Kat Von D for hitting a home run with this one. I am one happy client right now!

Please, no more replies about the spreadsheet in this thread. Thank you for your consideration! ************************************************** ******* Since a lot of information is being removed from this thread, try to help each other out and add product id numbers and sku numbers so people can search for items on ulta. *****Just to clarify, there is an item number that Ulta lists on the website, right under the picture of the item. The product id is the number given to the item in the URL. So Ulta's site follows this formula of having the url and then the very last part of the url is "productId=xlsImpprod" followed by an 8 digit number. If you use that "productId" number you can get to the page of any item on ulta. It's not a search, but a direct link to the page.***** Side note: BT's TOS states " No solicitation.

HO HO HO It's that time of year.... well since some sets are already coming out... What do you plan on buying or asking for this year? So far here's my list... I know I am missing some items! KVD Metal/Matte palette KVD Rock Candy Lipstick set (if out for the holidays) KVD lipstick in gun metal case UD Vintage Vault UD Spectrum 2 palette? (I think that's what It will be called) MAC Holiday stuff Bite Gold lipstick (If coming out) Skin Care and Body sets
Edit: @luvgloss13 will be making a new thread with all the info that everyone needs!!!! So disregard this one! Thought I'd start this up since I was poking through the old spring post and realized that no one had made this yet, and it'll be happening in just a few weeks! @luvgloss13 I contacted Xiomara and she already got back to me She seems like a lovely and very helpful lady! My list so far consists of: Chanel lipstick in Rouge Vie Chanel lipliner in Seduction Chanel blush in Rouge Profond Tatcha Camelia oil cleanser Oribe dry texturizing spray I may end up adding the new Dior or Burberry highlighters for fall 2016 if they happen to be in stock!
For the unabashed shopaholics here, I thought we could have our own thread where we could encourage (ease the wallet pain as it were) or dissuade each other from making a purchase. It could be anything: makeup, shoes, outfits, cars, vacation spots, whatever we may have some experience and guidance to offer. But for those purchases for which we are on the fence, honest opinions can help us make more clearheaded decisions. I offer up my shopping dilemma: I've been eyeing the Serge Lutens Roman Rouge lipstick for a while, but $75 is steep for such an item. However, with the current 8% back on Ebates and a 20% coupon for Saks, the price becomes a slightly more bearable amount. Is it worth it? Any insight would be helpful! And if you've been struggling with a purchase decision, share and see if anybody can help you figure out if the purchase is worth it!
I just realized we don't have a July Hauls thread yet! This one is inspired by the ridiculously gorgeous Mara Hoffman x Sephora Collection collaboration. Happy Shopping! Can't wait to see what everyone hauls
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 or cheat link) to acknowledge it. Beautytalk (the forum) does not allow outside links . A heart with no comment means I already have the deal or am deciding not to list it. Please list the retailer (without the link or cheat link; dot com) if it is not mentioned in the picture. Mods come in more often when they see any type of link. Thanks for sharing (original deals and repeats are welcome)! Please also share any deal haul you want, especially mystery gifts. Discussion is encouraged. A lot of questions come with certain deals or retailers. When I see questions I can answer, I will respond (unless the poster consistently ignores me or someone else already answered the complete question). I read all the main posts (so no need to tag me). If you're replying to a post that is not near the top of the thread and want me or a specific person to see it, please tag us. If you're posting about something on sale at Sephora, please share it here: http://community.sephora.com/t5/Hauls/Sephora-Sale s-Section-Get-it-Now/m-p/2122832#M44949
Let's have some talk about Today's Canadian Rouge event. It was a nice event and there weren't many people there or better say Eaton Center location is way more crowded in regular business days than it was during the event which was a good change. They had many beauty stations set and we're giving mini facials and mini make overs. They had a snack table set at the far end of the store. An SA was moving around with a basket of samples and offered us to take three samples. There weren't any extra goodies at checkout. I asked about the kabrow promo and they added it with my and my daughter's purchases. Overall it was a good event. Here is what I bought and the GWP The only down side was that I noticed after coming home that my gift bag was a bit damaged Spoiler (Highlight to read)
To start my birthday month off right, I finally got my CP orders from the sale and super excited my Birthday Boy order arrived too☺️ Some other sale purchases and great finds. I cannot wait to use Stavros! I can't wait to see what everyone is treating themselves to this month!😊

So I am about halfway through "The Life Changing Magic of Tidying," and am trying to implement some things already. I'm basically just thinking I'm doing it wrong. This isn't quite beauty related, but I'd never heard of this book before BT and it will eventually effect makeup/beauty. Have any any of you read this book and seriously tried to implement her "teachings?" The first category is clothing, which is actually the toughest possible thing for me to go through and I'm really struggling.
Last night i was super lucky and got to attend a YSL event in Sydney and got a personalised YSL Rouge Volupte Shine Lipstick with my initials. (excuse the terrible nails!) Whilst I am squealing with excitement, it got me thinking - has anybody else gotten personalised items from various brands? I almost feel too scared to use this!! NB: I live in Sydney, Australia!
Post your April hauls here... I've been thinking a lot about all of the beautiful makeup items I own (and skincare...fragrance...). I'm posting this a night early as April one is hours away where I am (Blackwhiskey's March haul thread http://community.sephora.com/t5/Hauls/March-angel- s-kiss-in-spring-HAULS/td-p/2390709) But occasionally I get sentimental. I'm half Welsh and half Polish (hence the eyes), two of the most sentimental, romantic and impractical people on earth. And I'm really loving what I own (some courtesy of Sephora) not that my affection keeps me from placing new orders...sadly. So with the Sephora 15% upon us, and spring blooming...let's be thankful for our April hauls. I'll start with my two new "low buy" (ha) photos. Some of the Tom Ford is courtesy of Sephora and Tom Ford Beauty. Nars Tom Ford Nars items: Blushes: Exhibit A (makes me glow) Impassioned (haven't had time to try) Lipstick Vivien Audacious Rosecliff limited The Body Glow One. I can't describe how beautiful it is. A light, creamy and easily absorbed oil with a slight sheen that smells like Tahiti and flowers. It's stunning. I want to bathe in it. Tom Ford Afternooner Pink Sand and Pieno Sole Cream blush Ultra Rich Lip Color Revolve around me Aphrodite Purple noon Moisturecore Scandola Carriacou Mustique
**Everything has been claimed!** I have some deluxe samples that I've only used once, if ever, and probably won't use them up. If you want one, call dibs and PM me your address!

NEW Benefit Dandelion Shy Beam (used twice) Bite gloss in Mimosa (never used) Bite Luminous Creme lipstick in Mimosa (never used) Urban Decay Matte Revolution lipstick in Bad Blood (used once) theBalm Meet Matt(e) Hughes liquid lipstick in Committed (never used) OLD Armani Fluid Sheer #2 Burberry Fresh Glow (2) Burberry Kisses lipstick in Military Red (forgot to include in the picture) Clinique Almost Lipstick in Pink Honey Clinique three-step packets (cleanser, clarifying lotion, moisturizer) Dr. Jart+ Water Fuse BB cream Eva NYC Therapy Session hair mask Glamglow Youth Cleanse Gucci Guilty (2) Lancome Energie de Vie Lotion-in-Gel Marc Jacobs Fineliner — black (not pictured) NARS Larger Than Life eyeliner — black (not pictured) NARS Orgasm blush Ole Henriksen Truth Sugar Glow Polishing Mask Origins charcoal mask (four pods) Sephora mascara YSL Effet Faux Cils mascara YSL Touche Eclat Blur Primer (2)
Over the past few months now going over a year, many of our fellow BT members have been really looking forward to trying Sephora Play! (the Sephora $10 monthly subscription beauty insider curation boxed sample service.) When it was originally released last year year Sephora stated it was going to only certain “test markets” and more would be released would an expected full releases in 2016. As of today (3-28-16) nor have any of my friends but I do see a higher rate of my peers being accepted in from the BT groups. *** I am proposing something different that is NOT a referral program and does not earn you or others any extra funds. Therefore, it’s aptly called: "SEPHORA MEMBERS PLAYING & PAYING IT FORWARD!" Program Description Right now most Sephora Play! Boxes are asking for referrals for additional members While many new members are still waiting for that coveted subscription invite from Sephora, this push from you as an already subscribed member might really help do the trick! Directions for those wishing to receive referrals to join PLAY!: STEP 1 → If you are a BTer who is CURRENTLY NOT enrolled in Sephora Play, post a quick, no more than 4 sentence bio about yourself. STEP 2 → Make sure to include your bio how long you have been trying as well. STEP 3 → Lastly, remind them to send you a private message so you can share all relevant information for BT. Directions for those who would like to share their PLAY! by Sephora referrals: DO NOT & I REPEAT DO NOT GO THE NEWEST POST ON THE LIST… YOU WANT TO GO THE OLDEST POST ON THE LIST (Which could be many pages back) AS THAT IS FROM THE PERSON WHO HAS BEEN WAITING PATIENTLY THE LONGEST! Go ahead and send that person a private message saying you will be taking care of their referral. Also (and please no offense) I would strongly suggest taking a screenshot of a couple of the pages with both your name and their name on it. For nothing else but security and validity. When the referral has been completed send them a message so they can mark “COMPLETED” on their post SO WHY IS THIS REALLY CALLED PAY IT FORWARD ???? AFTER YOU RECEIVE A REFERRAL TO JOIN PLAY! BY SEPHORA, WHAT SHOULD BE THE FIRST THING YOU SHOULD DO??? (After you successfully join the program and receive your first box with a referral card enclosed) YES, YOU GUESSED IT! GO BACK TO THE LAST PAGE OF THE LIST AND REFER THE NEXT PERSON! THAT WAY WE WILL ALWAYS KEEP PAYING IT FORWARD!!!
Hello, BT! I will be travelling to Madrid this Saturday for a week long school trip. I'm so excited So, my question is: are there any Spain or Europe exclusive products or brands I should look for while I'm there? I might not make it to a Sephora, but I'll definitely check out a drugstore. Also, it's been awhile since I've flown aboard; any travel or packing tips would be greatly appreciated!

I saw the best youtube video...on anti-hauls. Basically, it's things you are not going to buy (no way, not ever, absolutely) and why. So here are my anti-hauls for holiday 2016 updated: 1. The KVD/TooFaced collaboration. People are already listing it below. I don't get it and to me it just looks tacky. Two brands that apparently aren't better together. 2. Pat McGrath lips sets. I do not need glitter on my lips and the shades don't look unique or distinctive. 3. The new Tarte deluxe blush palette (the $65 one). I need to stop with these deluxe size holiday offerings. I can't seem to hit pan on one blush, let alone 9 (I think it has nine). 4. Things off Beauty dot com just because they're discounted. I do not need makeup, even super cheap makeup. I might want it, but I don't need it. 5. Sorry on this one, but after buying a bunch of UD palettes at full price, to see them all get discounted deeply, I will not be buying more full priced UD palettes. 6. If the Sephora Give Me More Lips has lip liners, I will not be buying it. Videos one and two are on the last or almost last page of comments to this thread. The others are littered in. Kimberly Clark (youtube name so not putting in names not allowed on BT) made them. Video 2 I'll link now:
