PRODUCTS YOU REGRET BUYING
Hey Beauties ! I was just here thinking and browsing the Sephora site along with my collection and it made me think about some stuff that just wasn't worth all the hype or wasn't all that . Most recently for me it has been the Benefit There Real Push up liner, it just wasn't a good consistency in my opinion and i totally could have done without it but anyway i thought i would start the discussion of what products have you purchased that wasn't worth the hype or you regret getting

Does Marc Jacobs ACTUALLY work on his products?
Sephora posted a few videos and he seems to talk more about the packaging than the product itself. He seems kinda clueless about his stuff in fact. Or in my opinion he does. Does he actually know about the actual makeup or just the packaging?   If just feels awkward watching him and it seems like hes trying to figure out what to say about the product.  What do yall think?

Marc Jacobs Beauty Fall Collection
Got an email today (July 6) that the Marc Jacobs Fall Beauty Collection will be available for early access tomorrow at 9 AM PST! It arrives in stores on July 24th. There are a couple previews on the Marc Jacobs Beauty site right now (which I can't link to, obviously) that look pretty interesting. I hope they've come up with a better mascara this time around!

So I'm thinking about buying the magic balls that are Guerlain Meteorites
After getting a summer job and making some pretty good money so far, I decided I want to splurge on my first high end product. I wasn't sure at first but then decided on purchasing the Meteorites from all your reviews. Are the"magic balls" worth getting for sure? Thank you!!

YouTube Tags!
Hey everyone, I thought it would be a good idea if we did YouTube Tags on BT because it's really fun and some of them are actually very helpful. There are bunch of beauty related ones out there ( Beauty Scenario, Perfect Palette, Lip Addict, etc.)we could do or we could even makeup our own! To start off, I am going to do the Would You Rather Tag!   Questions: 1.) Would you rather lose all of your mascaras, eyeliners, lipsticks, and lipglosses or lose all of your palettes and eyeshadows? I would rather lose all of my eyeliners because I rarely wear eyeliner, and I can just use eyeshadow as a liner. 2.) Would you rather chop off all your hair or never be able to cut it again? I would chop off all my hair because it would grow back eventually, but I can't imagine myself with a wedding train of hair. 3.) Would you rather have a coral cheek or a pink cheek? Definitely pink because I actually get tired of corals and they are not as flattering on me. 4.) If you had $1000 to spend, would you rather buy clothes or makeup? If I could,  I would definitely split the money between the two, but if I had to choose one! probably clothes because different outfits are more noticeable and will probably make a bigger difference in my overall appearance. Anyway, I don't have enough clothes LOL 5.) Would you rather apply lipstick as eyeliner, or eyeliner as lipstick? I would apply lipstick as eyeliner-no reason for this one other than that it sounds more comfortable. Although ,it's probably not very safe.... 6.) Would you rather only shop at MAC or Sephora? Definitely Sephora because there are more choices as far as brands, types, and colors.  7.) Would you rather only use one eyeshadow color or one lip color for the rest of your life? One lip color for sure because I loveee eyeshadow, and I can't imagine wearing only one color! Anyway, I just wear tinted lip balm most of the time. 8.) Would you rather wear winter clothes in summer or summer clothes in winter? I think I would rather wear summer clothes in the winter if it means I can wear tights and a coat. If I can't even wear a coat, then I would wear winter clothes in the summer and just camp out by the AC 9.) Would you rather have dark nails or bright nails all year round? Definitely dark nails because they are more likely to go with everything, and neons don't even look that good on me. 10.) Would you rather give up your favorite lip product or your favorite eye product? Again,  I choose eyes over lips, so I would give up my favorite lip product. 11.) Would you rather only be able to wear your hair in a ponytail or a messy bun? I would prefer to wear a ponytail only if I could straighten my hair everyday. Otherwise, my hair looks so frizzy and messy in a ponytail :/ 12.) Would your rather never be able to paint your nails again or never use lipgloss? I don't really paint my nails that often because I have really ugly nails, but I am working on getting them to a better shape, so I would choose never to wear lipgloss. Sigh 13.) Would you rather shave your eyebrows and have none at all or sharpie them in everyday? If they mean sharpie them in as in fill them in, then I would choose that, but I would never use an ACTUAL sharpie LOL In that case, I would have no brows and spend a lot of time filling them in regularly.  14.) Would you rather live without makeup or nail polish? I would definitely choose makeup over nail polish because makeup is way more fun for me, and I don't have the nails for nail polish!

Roxy Boxy TSB
Once I get the box back I'll pick out some items and donate the remaining items to 'The River' (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.   Donts’s ■ 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 it makes it more fun anticipating your turn) ■ DON'T put unsanitary items of any sort into the TSB. We want to have fun and get gorgeous, not sickly ■ 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.   Do’s ♥ 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. ♥ 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. ♥ Most importantly, share your experience! Please post a photo and a description of the box, what you took, and what you contributed.   Allowed: ☆High-end, clean makeup/skincare items (including makeup bags, brushes, etc. If you have questions, refer to other TSB threads or just ask!) ☆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 ☆Used items that haven’t been cleaned/sanitized ☆Questionable items (always ask if you have doubts!)   If you cannot take photos, Do Not Sign Up, please *******PUT BETTER OR EQUAL PRICED ITEMS IN FOR WHAT YOU TAKE OUT TO KEEP UP THE INTEGRITY OF THE BOX*********   Final Verdict on Mascara- A lot of the GWP mascaras are not sealed. It is ok to include these mascaras in the box ONLY IF THEY ARE UNUSED. Please be honest (it's a matter of health!). Also, please be aware that some of the mascaras may be dried out upon opening them. Only open them if you selected them as your item. Please be honest when it comes to this.   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).   -send your address to the person above you   -post a picture and text what you are taking and what you put in BEFORE you send the box on.   roxystar4 -------> 9405509699937585873456 1. bombshell30  -------> 91149011898666880867309 2. ghkim -------> 9405903699300192324806 3.

Shade Selection - Hard Time Matching Powders!
I've been trying new foundation powders recently and I can't seem to find the right shade. I've tried Estee Lauder Double Wear Powder, KVD Lock-It Powder, and MUFE Duo Mat Powder. I have fair skin with cool pink undertones so I've been getting shades that have the same pink undertones in them and they're all coming out too orange or pink-looking!    The kicker is that I have EL and MUFE liquid foundations and they match just fine. However, the KVD Lock-It concealer I tried (the lightest available) is also too orange on me.   So my real question is: Should I not be ordering shades with a pink undertone and going for something with a yellow or neutral tone to offset the pink undertones in my skin? I'm a little lost here and I'm frustrated with missing the mark. I'm not sure if I'm just picking brands that tend to be orange and pink or if I'm just making poor color choices! Any advice would be appreciated!

If you could only pick one!! It could be your all-time favorite lipstick, a specific product, or just the color that you think describes you! Even if you don't even own a color like it!   For myself, I would have to say a vibrant, bright, (almost on the verge of unwearable), light, pink color! Kind of like MAC Saint Germain or a much brighter and unsaturated version of Urban Decay's Obsessed.    I thought it was a silly and fun question and I wanted to see everyone's own thoughts on it haha!
