Yesterday I lost my makeup bag!!!!! (it might have been stolen but no proof....) All I can say is thank god it didn't have absolutely everything I own in it (my Tom Ford lipsticks are safe), but today I had to run to my Sephora to replace all my essentials try out all new things. First off, I had to go into the mall with absolutely zero makeup on while everyone in there was looking gorgeous with a full face.. embarrassing. Anywayssssssss after I really thought about what I had to have to get through the week, I narrowed it down to 5 products: foundation, concealer, powder, brow pencil, and mascara. What I lost Foundation : Giorgio Armani Luminous Silk Foundation (4) - the only reason I'm not crying about this is because it was almost out, and it was becoming too dark since I'm losing my 'tan' or I should say my 'less pale' Concealer : Giorgio Armani High Precision Retouch Powder : Laura Mercier Translucent Loose Setting Powder Brows : Anastasia Brow Wiz (Dark Brown) Mascara : Chanel Volume de Chanel What I bought Foundation : Diorskin Star Foundation (010) - I had been interested in trying this since it came out a few weeks ago and (from the one day I've had it) I really like it so far. I have very oily skin and the oil control, long wear and coverage is impressive. My only complaint is that 010 (the lightest color) is almost too dark for me and I'm not ridiculously pale Concealer : Dior Skinflash Radiance Booster Pen (002) - 8 hours of rest in a pen!!!!!!! Powder : Too Faced Primed & Poreless Pressed Powder Brows : Hourglass Arch Brow Sculpting Pencil (Soft Brunette) - love love love love I'm so glad I picked this up, personally I think it's a lot easier and faster to use than the Brow Wiz, definitely my favorite purchase Mascara : Diorshow (Catwalk Black) - I remember loving it when I was in high school (when I made some questionable makeup choices) and I decided to try it out again! Adds a good amount of volume for me but makes my lashes feel hard compared to my favorite mascaras (Laura Mercier) So I'm curious, if you lost all/most of your makeup, what would you buy? All the same products or use it as an opportunity to try out new things (like the makeup addict I am)?
I dislike the customer service and coupon restrictions. Just tried a coupon that gives NEARLY everything off 20% (even UD) and it didn't work. I wanted the Marc Jacob Daisy So Fresh purse spray. (Not at Sephora) Another horror was me driving to one 30 minutes away and kept checking up on the limited edition OPI polishes that were out of stock. They offered to get the items and transfer them to the store. IT TOOK A F****ING MONTH. Of course I got it for free because I was b****ing and whining and probably attempted to cause a scene. I complained about the driving and their incompetence. God, what a nightmare. I love you Sephora.
I am sitting here looking at all my makeup. Then I realize, I will never be able to use it all....not in a lifetime. Many products aren't even touched. But they keep coming out with new things! Especially with the holiday releases coming up. And I can't stop!!! What a dilemma!
Ok, I am a sucker for hilarious memes. I hope this thread can be one where you guys post your favorites. NOTE: I am not offended easily, so if you are, don't open the spoiler Spoiler (Highlight to read) Bad luck Brian is totally my favorite because there are quite a few VERY inappropriate ones that I can laugh at in the comfort of my own home without be judged.

I dont want to pour my dramatic life story here.. So ill cut to the point. Past 2years have been tough since my mothers pass. Family/chosen sides/Pretty emotional arguments. I have College, work, insta, and my lovely BT to keep me company. Sephora and BT make me happy after a hard day/: does anyone else get happy with makeup after a long rough day?(: my sleeping pattern has been terrible. Any tips and advice on how to slowly get back to a better sleeping schedule. (Staying up late just thinking/: and spending money on makeup that i dont need xD ) (Products?) any tips for eating healthy on the go(: ? I know being healthy and sleep are important for beauty and college grades .. Haha. tips on feeling better period? Haha. Stories on how you ladies made it through a challenge? I know we cant get to personal or shouldnt. I hope i didnt>.< Just like to say thank you to you lovely ladies(:
So I stopped in SiJCP today because I took my niece to BaB and walking by I thought I'd check out the new favorites and grab an eyeliner. I let her pick out a nail polish from the sale section and we went to check out. After handing over my Rouge card I asked if there were any current promotions. She said just a Bare Minerals one so I said never mind I pretty recently picked up the BareSkin foundation. Then I asked if there were any newer samples available and was told nope, no samples, just the Bare Minerals one and you have to buy something. Seriously, over 1K a year and no samples, why do I even bother?
My makeup "vanity" faces a window, I don't have room to put up lights in front of my space. It seemed like a great idea at the time I move my space around. However I realized I usually put my makeup at 0dark30 so I need good lighting. I currently have a small LED lamp that attaches to the desk I use. I also have a lighted mirror (from Target). The lighting just isn't working for me. It's frustrating. I don't want to move my set up around. Anyone have recommendations for lighting?
Come and let everyone know if you've done a trade with someone or they've been an awesome TSB contributor! Let's give kudos to our BT BFFs! So a post could be one persons feedback on another, how a trade went, did they ship quickly, etc. and others could reply if they dealt with the same person and how their trade went.
UPDATE!!! Please check if the person you are posting about already has status. Once they have that I no longer add them up. This will help keep the thread clearer, and to be honest make this job easier for me.

Tried to make a return today at my local Sephora without a receipt. I don't have Beauty Insider account (not a frequent shopper) and had two brand new items, one used totaling ~$80. The register couldn't read my card so a manager starts to inspect my ID, like she is a bouncer in a college town bar. She starts to list things that look wrong with my ID. My ID is five years old and needs to be renewed but why would a grown adult own a fake ID? I offered to show her credit cards and work badge to reflect my name but she refused. She handed my ID to her co-workers and pointed at things she deemed "wrong" with the ID. It was a bizarre and humiliating experience. Returns are at a mangers discretion and it's not the end of the world if she refused my items. The "not scanning correctly on the register" reason is suffice. But who or why would any employee openly accuse a customer of owning and using an illegal instrument (a misdemeanor crime)? If she were adament, the police should have been called. Instead, the store and the company has a pissed off customer. Does Sephora Corporate condone this kind of behavior for store returns?
Canadian shoppers! Remember how annoying it was when we found out that Sephora is no longer on the Canadian ebates site? It's back now! 4% cash back Enjoy!! Kinda sucks that it took them this long to have it back since I bought $300+ purchase over the last month, and could really do with the 4-8% cash back! Well at least it's back now
I love the colors, but I don't know why none of them look good on me. Or i'm doing something wrong. I've got big green eyes and pale skin and I've tried a mixture of all of them and they don't do anything for me but make me look dead tired lol Anyone else have this problem???
I've always use online batch code website to check manufacture dates for my skincare/makeup products but today I called Clinique about a serum and they told me that that's not how their system works. For example, I have a serum with the batch code B81 and it comes out as a manufacture date of August 2011. However, Clinique customer service called the supply line and said the item still has a shelf life of two years left. If you're knowledgeable on this topic, please let me know your thoughts
Hello there, ladies and gents! Keeping in line with all the fun and interactive threads asking about your most recent halls, items you have your eyes on, what you're currently wearing, what's your hair routine, and more, I've decide to branch out and ask: "What's on your plate?" The beauty world doesn't just stop at skin care and cosmetics, it also goes hand in hand with your overall health and well-being, so with that, I'm curious to see what we're all chowing down and snacking on be it for breakfast, lunch, dinner, dessert, or inbetween! For those with apps that help count calories or to those who just want to keep a log, here's a place to share, possibly find and share some recipes, and even tips on maintaining a balanced diet. Don't just share food items, but even drinks! I'm a huge fan of tea and at least have a cup of green tea a day (anti-oxidants) and drink plenty of water. For lunch today, I had: -Brown rice -Steamed egg -Steamed red snapper with green onion, sesame oil, and black pepper -Gai lan (it's a type of Chinese vegetable/greens) Now, tell me, Beauty Talk world, what do you have?
So kinda screwed myself...I applied for a job, got the interview, they asked me if I knew excel (of course I said yes, it's a great position) and, I don't. How much do you think I could grasp in a week???
What is everyone wearing on their lips? I am currently trying all of my lip products because i have all day and there is no school today. Also on a side note, my Make Up Forever lipstick broke so... But it's an excuse to go and buy more makeup! Yay
Does it bother anyone else that people are allowed to post reviews on something they haven't purchased? I was looking at the UD Mother Lode to post a pic and I start scrolling: That's too expensive, or I wish I could afford it, or only rich people can buy this, thanks for making me depressed. There should be a box to check if you have purchased the item or a box if you just want to comment on it. 37 reviews and only ONE person that actually has it in hand
My SIL is a nanny for the director of a local spa and she just unloaded a ton of product and samples on her. She was awesome enough to split the haul and just brought me a goodie bag! Looks like I'll be having some fun!
So I'd like to maintain a board for the Canadian customers. A place where we can share our events, promos, problems etc. I sometimes see deals and info for Canadians and rather then posting a new convo all the time maybe we can just share on this board. I think it would be easier to communicate with each other if we only had one board to follow. - I recently posted that Nail Polish Canada has free shipping on any orders for a limited time. EDITED: Anyone interested in getting Tonymoly products you can contact them via their Canadian Facebook page to place an order. 5$ shipping, free over purchases 50$. I think they have a store in Pacific Mall in Markham ON Tarte now ships to Canada!
This happened to me once before, I got stuck on a number that had a certain digit repeated 3 times and it freaks me out!!! I'm now at 5_ _ _ (fill in 3 of the number six there). Yes, I know this is weird, I feel like a bit of a freak, but it's been staring me down and it gives me the willies, heebie jeebies and every other icky feeling you can imagine. On the rare occasion that I actually write a check or come across anything with those 3 digits, I'm gone! The check gets ripped up. If I'm playing solitare, end of game - you get where I'm going with that. So I just need one heart - hate to go begging. Hope this gets seen soon, posting it in off topic and I know that's where many things go to die, sadly. Thanks for the assist, whatever little angel comes along and helps me out with this problem. It's okay, you can laugh about it - it's just one of those things. Thanks in advance.
I recently heard about dumpster diving and people literally jump into dumpsters and steal makeup. Is it even considered "stealing" if it's in trash? Just thinking about it is disgusting and it's making me feel dirty haha.

This is the only board I go on and I have found everyone here to be supportive. I hope to get your advice. I have been looking for steady employment for four years. I have multiple degrees and couldn't even land a minimum wage job and this long, negative journey has resulted in anxiety and severe depression. I finally found a full time job with benefits in my field. I started last week and I hate the job. I'm not being paid a competitive wage for all I'm expected to do and the hours are horrible. I'm scared to leave the job because I'm afraid I won't be able to find another one. I would appreciate any opinions that you have. Thanks!
* Please do not move this to Customer Support. This is a question for all Canadian customers not just me personally. How is the new duty charge for Canadian orders being calculated? Is it a flat percentage for everything or is NAFTA / the location of manufacture being taken into account What are the exact figures / math of this process
A while back I had made a look using the colors of the stray cat that took shelter in my home, I've fed and given her water ever since. This is the second time she's had kittens, unfortunately the last litter didn't survive and from what I know she only had two this time but only one has made it to the barely opening eyes stage. She had them on July 1st. I haven't named the kitty yet, but here's a picture of his(I'm thinking it's a he) cuteness. Taken today. It's been 2 months and 7 days since little neko was born. Here is his updated picture, he posed for it. He posed a lot.
I'm debating what kind of storage I want to go for. I currently use a writing desk (only has one drawer that is stuffed with random junk right now). On top, I have a couple acrylic drawers, and then some other bins filled with random things. It's... chaos right now. There's not enough room for it to be organized, and it's driving me nuts. I am waffling between IKEA Alex drawers (the 5) to go underneath, and store things that way, or a ton more acrylics for on top. I'd prefer acrylics on top of the desk for a) access and b) appearance, but I just am thinking it's not going to fit everything I want it to fit. Does anyone have any personal experiences that might help my decision?
Was wondering if anyone's subscribed to the Walmart Beauty Box that (I think) only recently came out? I just got mine today, and I'm pretty impressed, considering it was only $5! Obviously, nothing high end in here, but I still love my drugstore brands and thought this was totally worth it.
