Deals too good to pass Up!
The only thing I love more than shopping is getting a great deal.  I've created a website with the same name as this thread.  If you share here and want to keep the deal exclusive to BT readers, just write for BT only in the post.   I will heart every deal I see without an outside link .  If your deal does not have a heart from me, I have not seen it yet.  A heart with no comment means I already had your deal on my site or decided not to list it.   Should I use your deal, I will thank you here.  Thanks again to everyone who shares!    If you find something full priced that is new and awesome, share it here.   http://community.sephora.com/t5/Sephora-com/Spring -Summer-2015-Found-in-the-Wild-quot-New-quot/m-p/1 ...

Subscription box photo sharing
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)

Marvellous March Hauls: Do What You Gotta Do!
I know we still have a few more hours until the 1st, but I thought I'd start us off, anyway!   I got the email that the Shiseido Veiled Rouge lipstick I tried to buy earlier this week (but got a shadow shipped to me instead, lol) was back in stock, so I decided to try buying it again.   Come on guys!  Let's hope the second time for Skyglow is the charm   What've you hauled or will be hauling this month?

OH,,,,,Mail man,,,,,just for a good laugh.
Here is a fun incident related to Sephora hauls that I thought You guys will enjoy too. I was expecting last two of my sale packages today so when mail man delivered them this morning, I immediately opened first one and was a bit surprised to see a coverFx contour kit, Sephora eye shadow palette and a few more things. I checked the invoice then and it was named for someone else in my building. After making sure the other package was mine, I went down stairs to see if the security guy at reception knows who this other person is because there was no unit# on invoice. Mail man was also standing there with a few other management people. I told him this is not my package and I opened it without paying attention on the name. He said oh I am so sorry, infact more than 90% of sephora packages I deliver in this building are yours so I just check the name on first one and thought second will be yours as well because you know how frequently you have Sephora orders to be delivered. With this all the men standing there start smiling.     Oh man, I couldn't decide if I should laugh or be embarrassed. I mean it is a huge building and still if there is a Sephora package it is assumed to be for me Anyways he came upstairs with me and we found the unit # on the mailing label so he went to deliver that package to right person. I have no idea what that lady might have said when she saw her package already opened.....Then he came in the afternoon again to deliver my second package which he said was hidden under other mail and he didn't saw it when he first came in the morning. Apparently he was thoroughly absent minded today but it made me think if I am really spending too much @ Sephora.

PhytoSpecific Relaxed hair care line
 So I've always been natural, and my hair is long and healthy, but so thick that its a four hour process to wash and style once a week, also I have to restyle every three days because my hair won't hold the style without frizzing up.     I really wanted to chemically treat my hair, but I wanted to do it with the best products on the market, not your average beauty supply. So I decided on the Phyto line and proceeded to get EVERY product the sell for relaxed hair. Some of the products can be used regardless of hair type, like the shampoo and conditioner can be used on anyones color treated hair. All of the styling products are good for all hair types. And the protein treatment really is for anyone.          Three Large Bags Full!!!     Everything in this picture listed below: BAOBOB OIL  $40 ULTRA SMOOTHING SHAMPOO   $19 ULTRA SMOOTHING MASK (CONDITIONER)    $39 MOISTURIZING STYLING CREAM    $28 NOURISHING STYLING POMADE     $28 INTEGRAL HYDRATING MIST           $29 ULTRA-REPAIR NIGHT TREATMENT    $38 THERMOPERFECT 8 (HEAT PROTECTANT)   $28 I also purchased two index 2 relaxers  $65 *2   All in all with other things I purchased it was around $500. I'll make a second haul post.   Most of all I'm excited to do something different with my hair knowing I'm using quality products.

Step it up Sephora!
I know this is frequently discussed on BT, but I hadn't experienced it my self until today. This was an online order from bloomingdales, not in store at a counter. I have no "status" at bloomingdales (does that even exist?). So this is how us regular folk are treated   I knew going in that with an $85 purchase, I would get the two nars goodies, but my surprise was the 6 samples I received. There was no indication I would receive samples ... and they are actually good ones! The only bonus offer added to my cart was the Nars GWP.   We get excited that sephora lets us pick 5 samples 1 week out of the year. Meanwhile, over at bloomies, they throw them in without mention!   With my $85 purchase, I received:   NARS signature pouch DS Illuminator in Orgasm (0.3 oz, 8mL) Mini Larger Than Life Long-Wear Eyeliner in Via Veneto (0.01 oz, 0.3g) Plus:   Prada Candy Florale, EDT (1.5ml 0.05 fl oz) Tom Ford Neroli Portofino EDP (1.5 ml 0.05 fl oz) Tory Burch EDP  (1.5 ml 0.05 fl oz) NARCISCO by Narcisco Rodriguez EDP ( 0.8 ml 0.02 fl oz My Burberry by Burberry EDP (2.0  ml 0.07 fl oz) Guerlain Terracotta Joli Teint Foundation in Natural (1.5 ml 0.05 fl oz) Oh well, back to real life!

recent EXPENSIVE buys?
Hi ladies, Have you guys recently bought anything with an ungodly price? I mean today I just was browsing the Neimans site (I know...dangerous) and I accidentally landed of the tom ford beauty site and I just bought two new lipsticks casablanca and gustavo. I already was like, "why am I spending money on these when I have so many dupes for them already?" oh wait. Tom Ford. The packaging and formula is honestly my favorite which sucks because itʻs so expensive. To make matters worse I ended up buying the Rodin Beauty Oil too (so excited to try it out though). Ugh, I need more self control.

Jan 2015 TSB (closed)
Once I get the box back I'll pick out some items and donate the remaining items to a local organization that takes and redistributes new and used makeup/beauty items to women in need. I've given beauty products to this organization before and they're really good.   * Please make sure every item is in a plastic ziplock bag to prevent spills.   * Any larger items (full-size perfume, larger body care, larger skincare, large palettes) * Must* be proposed first before adding to your trade. If the next 2-3 people arent interested, please switch that item out.  * The box needs to stay USPS medium or large rate. If you can't fit it, swap out a larger item to make room.     Don't ■ Don't keep the box for more than two days. Keep it moving! If you are traveling or a special circumstance comes up, we can work to rearrange things. (Also you MUST include a tracking number)  ■ Don't put unsanitary items of any sort into the TSB.  ■ Don't put any drugstore items into the TSB. ■ No reserve 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. ■ Don't take more than what you put in. Please trade at or above each item’s retail value. Price everything out.   Do ♥ Please contribute high-end beauty products only. No drugstore items. If you have questions or you are unsure of an item, ask! ♥ Unused, swatched or lightly used products are perfectly acceptable. Well-loved items are not (unless explicitly requested by the next person or there has been a posted picture and someone requested that item). Again, if you’re unsure, ask! ♥ Swatched/used items must be labeled as such. Label only on this thread not on actual item. ♥ All opened items must be cleaned/sanitized prior to their addition to the box. ♥ Send your address to the person above you in a PM. ♥ Package things carefully! Try to leave the TSB in better condition than you found it ♥ Please seal any items that could leak/spill/make a mess accordingly. ♥ Please post a photo and your proposed trade before shipping the box. That way members can weigh in on the trade.     Allowed: ☆ Fragrance (be sure to package bottles properly!) ☆Nail polish (again, be careful!)   Not allowed: ☆Pre-made samples ☆ NO used/swatched lip wands (the kind you dunk the wand in or things like stila lipglaze) ☆Heavily used items ☆ Drugstore items ☆Questionable items (always ask if you have doubts!)   Make sure total of what you put in is equal or above what you put out.   Also, please pick up a large priority box at the post office prior to receiving the box. This is so we can streamline things (get the box to everyone faster in case the box breaks or there's a spill).    roxystar ------>  USPS Tracking  9405509699938106322064 1.

Makeup in Europe: Recommendations?
I've got my sights on traveling to Italy and Spain this summer, and am looking for recommendations for brands that will be accessible in those two countries that are otherwise harder to find in the states!   So far, all I have on my list are Kiko and Pupa Cosmetics. I'm not sure if one can gain easy access to Laduree makeup, Collection Eyes Uncovered palettes, or other European brands in Italy or Spain though. Any thoughts and/or experiences are greatly appreciated!

Just call me BT-Claus (And the Best Beauty Tips)
**CLOSED** This giveaway is a wrap! Those individuals chosen have been notified, so check your messages! Happy Holidays, everyone!   So, I have lots and lots of deluxe samples and foils. Good ones, too (La Mer, Guerlain, Dior...), but my stash is becoming an unmanageable space-hog. I want them out of my house and into the hands of BTers who will use them. I also want to show all of you my gratitude for maintaining such a positive community!   So, I've decided to play BT-Claus, and offer them to all of you-- no strings attached. Not a TSB, not a trade, not even a pay it forward situation (unless you were so inclined, of course). I am giving them away, with postage to either the US or Canada paid by me (sorry, BTers living in the rest of the world).   Here's the deal: I'm going to assemble ten to fifteen boxes full of samples, and from this thread, I'm going to choose random* people to PM for an address. I'll be choosing anytime between now and Sunday (21 December 2014). You should expect to hear from me no later than Sunday evening (say, 7pm EST).  Note: you must be over 18 (sorry, younguns!). I'll ship boxes on Monday, and viola!-- you could be the proud recipient of an unexpected holiday gift!   To avoid confusion, please only post if you are interested in receiving a box, or specify your disinterest within your post. The discussion topic is: what is the best beauty/skincare tip you have been taught, or what beauty/skincare tip would you tell everyone about, if you could?   *As these are my personal items and my own money for postage, I hope it is okay with all of you that I choose how I will decide who receives a box, whether it be by random generator or just by my own whim.

Two Great Customer Service Stories-Thanks Sephora and Nordies!
  I just had to say that I had the two best customer service experiences of my life!  One at Sephora and the other at Nordstrom's.  I went to a Sephora while visiting my father in Florida and I just had the most refreshing moment with an SA.  I was just lounging through the mall (my father was being grumpy with not finding what he wanted) so I found a Sephora (I'm not sure how many there are in Miami, LOL!  It was near Aventura I think...) and I was just walking around.  Wandering really when the nicest SA came up with me and we started chatting.  We were just goofing off (something never seen by me in a Sephora on a Saturday night) and all of a sudden she was showing me stuff that she thought I might like and stuff that are her HG.  She must have spent an hour and a half on me!  I've never felt so wanted in a Sephora before in my life.  They normally act like they want me to go away unless I'm getting a makeover.  Then they want to show me everything!  I didn't get her name (I think it was Marla) but she was truly the best.  She almost got me to buy Kat's Interstellar but no one is that good!   Then I had a kick **bleep** Nordstrom's experience!  Two within 5 days!  I had just come back from Florida on Tuesday and I didn't go online for the whole time I was with my father so I was behind on all my sales and things.  I called Norstrom's because I was coming into the store on Saturday (eh!  the Saturday before Christmas at the mall!) to pick up some stuff and I wanted to see if they were in stock.  I got the greatest stylist named Michael!  He sat there and looked through the Chanel section for the 500 items that I wanted (he kept asking me if there was anything else that I would like and I just kept coming up with things that I wanted from Chanel!).  That's when he told me about the price match on the Lord and Taylor sale that ended that night.  I was pissed because I had scheduled my 10 point day for Saturday so I told him that and he called and had my point day switched.  Made me very happy.  So I got my 10 point day and my 10% off!  But if that wasn't enough, he gave me the 10% on the Chanel items (Chanel wasn't included in Lord and Taylor's sale)!  He was about to ring me up and he asked me if there was anything else I wanted to buy and I was like "Well, i have to call back because I wanted some Dior and MAC" and he was so sweet and said that he'd grab them for me.  So I gave him a list of what I wanted (it was A LOT!) and let him go on his merry hunt for my items.  About a half hour later, he called me and said that he got most of my stuff (the only thing that they didn't have in store was the MAC lip pencil in Bespoken For and the holiday Dior eye shadow palette in Golden Shock). I told him that I figured that the Dior eye shadow would be MIA because they took it down off the website but he persisted and he found a store that still had both items and he took my information and said that they would send it to me via UPS.  He took care of me at every turn even though I'm just some lady with too much time on my hands who was just too lazy to go to the store and shop around like most people.  He put mu whole Christmas gift list together which is awesome enough but then he called me today at lunch and he wanted to know if I wanted him to gift wrap anything!  How great is that???  So when I go pick up my stuff at the store tomorrow, not only do I not have to stand there and wait to pay at 500 individual make up and fragrance counters, I have my things already have my things gift wrapped and he said he threw in a million samples.  He said every sample they had at the Jo Malone and Chanel counter.  I really need to stop shopping but when someone goes out of their way to help you like that, it just makes me want to shop more, LOL!  And the biggest shock was about an hour after I talked to him, I got my MAC and Dior order from UPS.  I wasn't charged extra for the shipping.  I placed my order at 8pm on Wednesday and received my order less than 2 days later!  Awesome!
