Tom Ford Updates
Hey Beauties- We have ALOT of threads around here for Tom Ford products. I figured I'd start one thread where we can update each other on items as they come out or we see them available.    For all my UK'ers, or people willing to pay for shipping from the UK, Harrods has Softcore and Nude Dip from the Fall collection available right now. Happy Shopping!

TSB Best Practices for the BT Community
Hello All, Greenporchlights, KBMatthews, Zpsid91 and I are sponsoring this Best Practices thread to help TSB participants and coordinators have a smooth and fun experience. Below are the best practices we’ve come up with for the entire community. TSB Coordinators can choose to use all or some of this as they are starting their TSB’s.   What is a TSB: TSB stands for Traveling Sephora Box. It is a trade box amongst a group of community members who are trading items (New and/or used) with each other. The box is started by a TSB Coordinator and then moves on to specified people in the group by mail. At the end the box is returned to the box coordinator for them to decide how the items will be allocated. Options have been to donate to charities, or roll the box into additional rounds.   TSB Eligibility Requirements- Who can Join : Strongly Advised: Must be 18 or older to participate VIB or Rouge Status (recommendation) Must have 500 Hearts (recommendation: 750+ hearts) This is up to the discretion of the TSB Coordinator. While we recommend 500 hearts, you can go lower if you doing a Drugstore box. Active member of the community for at least 3 months (recommendation) Definition of active: Participates in threads regularly. (ie: at least one time a week) Ability to pay between $17- $28 for shipping fees (US and CDN) Must have access to a camera and device to upload pictures to post pictures of trades Reference from another successful TSB Coordinator and/or members Provide the TSB Coordinator reference, or the thread that shows your positive participation in a TSB within the last 6- 12 months (recommendation 6-12 months) Must provide your contact information (recommended e-mail, mailing address, phone number) to the TSB Coordinator Optional: Location Specific: Open to US Only Open to Canada Only Open to both US and Canada Box deposit – The Box coordinator can require a box deposit for participation in the box. This can alleviate the concern of boxes ending up missing The deposit can be only required for participants who have not met the outlined Eligibility requirements. The deposit can be anywhere from between $50-$200. The deposit should be help in the PayPal account of the Box Coordinator, or another trusted member of the box. It should be paid before the participants turn, and promptly returned as soon as the box is with the next participant. General TSB Guidelines 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.   Trading Cost Guidelines Full sized: Items should be valued at their full retail value. Even if items were on sale at one point, or were purchased for more than retail, they should be valued at the regular full price. Exceptions may be made if an item is easily available to everyone and is on sale/clearance. This is at the discretion of the box coordinator.   New/lightly swatched = no price change Used 1-2x = take 10% off value Used 3-4x = take 20% off value Anything more than 4x = please use your best judgement and wait for input   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. Must be either new and unused, or very lightly used. Take 10% off value if lightly used/swatched Do not include deluxe’s if you've lightly used them even once. Foils = no value or $1 each (box coordinator may decide)   Packaging: 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 Items will be organized in bags by type. Make sure products are wrapped well so they won’t leak or break and ruin other things in the box. Every item needs to be inside a plastic bag/Ziploc Label the Ziploc bags to outline the categoriy that goes into that specific bag Try not to pack more than a large flat rate USPS box can hold!  We want this to stay affordable for everyone. If you absolutely cannot fit into one box – give a head’s up to the next person!! Label the outside of the box with “Fragile” and “This Side Up” to further limit damage to the items inside the box   Courtesies: Don't put in anything unsanitary! (i.e. used lipgloss,  used liquid lipstick,  used cream products, used mascara) 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 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 Swatched/used items must be labeled as such. All opened items must be cleaned/sanitized prior to their addition to the box Sanatizing 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 and 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. (Unless it’s a drugstore box) If you have questions or you are unsure of an item, ask!   Optional: Must adhere to online cataloging of values and trade-outs through a communal spreadsheet A required signature would be best. Please contact the person on the list after you about arranging for safe arrival, whether that means alternatively shipping to the person's workplace, or to a PO box, etc. 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 aren't interested, please switch that item out.  Exceptions can be made if there is ample room in the box and there is interest later in the box.   Allowed in the box:   Depending on the box theme, you may include different items and brand levels. For a general TSB, rule of thumb is to only include mid to high end products (think brands sold at Sephora, The Bay, Nordstrom, etc). Fragrance can be included if it's in a spray bottle (can be 1/2 used if there is interest); rollerballs allowed only if lightly used/swatched/new Nail polish must only be lightly used, clean, and tightly closed 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 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).   Not allowed in the box: Pre-made samples Drugstore or lower end items (unless a Drugstore box) Heavily used items (except for perfume) Swatching items in the box 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. Large or bulky items unless there is interest No duplicates unless they are high end or highly sought after products     Mail Tracking All participants must provide a tracking number for their shipment, posted to the thread upon receipt. Insurance specifications will be determined by the box leader per each individual box. However, a general rule of thumb is to cover the charity buy-in, if there is one. For example, if a box’s buy-in is $20 and there are 10 participants, each person should purchase enough insurance to cover $200. At the start of the box, each participant should PM the person who will next receive the box to determine shipping details. These shipping details should be confirmed again by PM before sending out the box. When specifying shipping instructions, choose the option that optimizes both the security of the box and timely retrieval, whether that means having the box shipped to a workplace to ensure a signature, to a PO Box, etc. Each participant is responsible for notifying box the box leader, as well as the participants before and after them, should their availability or instructions change. For Canadian TSBs, a rule of thumb for the train is to plan out the route based on location. Shipping costs can be extremely high and take quite a while; minimizing the distance between each stop is ideal for everyone.   Item tracking     Upon receiving the box, all participants must post photos of every item in the box to account for its contents. The box leader must confirm all items are present, but it is encouraged that all participants take inventory for greater accuracy and accountability. Box leaders are encouraged to utilize a spreadsheet that all participants can view online for greater accountability. Box leaders can also make the spreadsheet communal, providing participants with the ability to claim and add their own items to the list once trades have been approved. Google Sheets is free and available to edit to anyone with a link to the sheet—all changes save automatically within a web browser; certain spreadsheet cells can be “data locked” by the box leader following each trade to safeguard values and list contents, thus preventing potentially dishonest participants from changing or deleting them. PM Greenporchlights for a tutorial on how to set up a spreadsheet, disburse it to participants, lock data, format, etc. In lieu of, or in addition to, an electronic spreadsheet, box leaders may elect to use a physical tracking sheet in the box that participants must complete after trades have been approved.   Participant “Tracking” We cannot publically keep a place in the community for people who have had questionable trade experiences; however, please PM one of the sponsors to get guidance on this if you have questions. Before accepting any participant into a box, ask for references from other BT members and check the trade threads. Post trade thread links to this thread for easy reference checking. Box coordinators can post links to their box here so future box participants can easily check one place for references.   Helpful Links:  Below are links to Successful Trades:  http://community.sephora.com/t5/Off-Topic/List-of- Successful-Traders-January-2015/td-p/1852954[commu ...   http://community.sephora.com/t5/Off-Topic/Successf ul-Trades-or-TSB-Experiences/td-p/1012387[communit ...   Thank you!  GreenPorchLights, kbmatthews, Mrsbaine, Zpsid91

SIMPLE MAKEUP ADVICE THAT CHANGED YOUR GAME
have you ever had an a-ha moment after a  very simple suggestion was thrown your way?    i'm not talking years of practice leading to mastering the craft here. but rather when  your makeup game changed for the better after a tiny tweak in technique and / or perspective.   i was chatting with a friend about it, i realized i had a couple and thought it would be a cool thing to discuss here--for fun, and to share what could possibly be a-ha moments for others !   my first proper simple suggestion to how i approached makeup was years ago, but still after  years  of struggle to find a foundation that really did match my skin. a friend makeup artist told me i had neutral-to-yellow undertones (she also said 'olive but too pale to even tell'.... too pale to even tell will be the name of my memoirs ) and to try out japanese brand foundations. i eventually found bobbi brown, giorgio armani and nars, too, and that struggle was put to rest.   my second  ohhhhhh  moment was relatively more recently, when i was advised to apply liner (particularly winged, liquid/gel liner) with my eyes open, rather than closed. this. changed. everything. for me. i'd always struggled because i have ever-so-slightly hooded eyes, and when i applied the perfect wing to closed eyes, everything was pointing the wrong way when i opened them. and with this simple suggestion, suddenly something i felt i'd never learn how to swing was remarkably easy and almost foolproof. same goes for eyeshadow (particularly in the crease) though to a lesser degree.   how about you ??

Best way to set Double Wear
Hello all,   Im not huge on foundations normally because I have really dry skin. SURPRISINGLY the estee Lauder Double Wear actually looks the most flawless on my skin. Ive tried many and many, I work in makeup and skin care and I have found it to really suit my skin. Very unexpected since its usually better for oily skin.    Now my only problem is how to set it, or the best way to set it. I have a long day tomorrow with an event at the end of the day and not much time to do a face of makeup in between so I will have to do it at the beginning of the day and a similar situation in a week.    Best way or best powder or best spray to set this and make it last with no breaking up or anything funky??
