World;s Most Hilarious Airport Security Issue
So, recently (as in 2 days ago) I packed my liquid like a pro, but I still got pulled over for a complete carryon check (purse and suitcase.) The offenders? Rouge G lipsticks. Apparently too heavy, and have a menacing shape Seriously LOL, UP NOTE - got through after the agent realized the whole automatic mirror thing is brilliant, not threatening. In fact, she loved it so much, she showed everyone in the (small) airport  how genius it really is. Except for the part of triggering a potential international situation. LOL!!!!!   Anyway, what's your hilarious airport security holdup?

I've been chatting with some fellow coffee addicts over in the Random Thoughts thread but I thought maybe I should make a separate thread.  So let's discuss anything/everything about coffee!   I just got the Peet's Sumatra blend in the k cups and I really like it!  Need to make a note to try their Major Dickinsons Blend since it's so popular.

Can we talk wigs? to
I have wanted to dye my hair purple since I was in middle school (started 6th grade in 2005) first I wanted a plum purple but for the last 6 or so years I have wanted lilac. And now I am also wanting to go for a dark sapphire blue. The thing is I am too much of a scaredy cat, I have never done anything to my hair. I love my natural colors, and I really need to work on nursing it back to health from too much hot tools.   I have been thinking about getting a wig or two and dying it/them. Where should I start? I do most of my shopping online, so if I could get a wig online, that would be ideal. I know I need human hair to be able to dye it (plus that looks better) and I would really like one relatively close to my length. I have pretty long hair, it goes down to my belly button.

Positive Shopping Experiences
So, I posted a pet peeve yesterday about a shopping experience.  I usually like to balance my negative stuff with positive, so I don't feel quite as guilty.  (My capacity for guilt is legendary.)     Anywho, I thought it might be nice to make a thread where we can post about shopping experiences that wowed us no matter where they happened.     While my most recent positive experience was with Julep (mentioned elsewhere on BT), my absolute best shopping experience was with Kiyonna.  Kiyonna makes really cute clothing that is actually cut to be flattering to plus size women.   They make a lot of styles with three quarter length sleeves. Since I'm short with proportionally shorter arms, I especially appreciate three quarter length sleeves. They're not too long and hide my upper arms, which I'm terribly self conscious about. I wrote them a note thanking them for making so many flattering, workable styles, and they sent me a free top in my size with a note wishing me a more confident next year.  Such a wonderful company!    What are some of your positive customer service experiences?

Spring vacation must-haves
Hi all! Hope you babes are having a wonderful New Year!! So I am taking my first vacation in several years (read: 8) and am super excited! In late April I'll be leaving for Gatlinburg, TN. So far, I know I'm packing my shampoo/conditioner and sunscreen, but that's about it. I need a super quick/easy hair and makeup look I can pull off  before I leave the hotel without looking too shabby (think model-off-duty). I'm naturally fair skinned (but will be tanning before I leave) and my hair isn't not straight but it's not wavy so it's hard to wear natural. (I'm thinking about trying Bumble & Bumble Don't Blow It Styler). What do you lovelies recommend? Also, any packing tips or other vacation hacks will be greatly appreciated

Support and Advice Needed
When you’ve been strong for too long and need some support and advice, I’ve found that third party sources from a trusted community is one of the easiest and best ways to receive that.   As some of you know, in October last year I got engaged to my boyfriend of three years.  Last night was the conclusion to a steep decline in our relationship. Last year, he became very depressed and had a psychotic episode to which we got him help for. He was admitted to the psychiatric hospital for about two week which seemed to ground him and bring him back to the man I fell in love with.  The root of this cause was alcohol and very low self-esteem. Though he was on the upswing for about a week, there was a rapid decline in his mood. He has developed an aggression toward me which has made me feel very unsafe to be alone with him. He was advised by a doctor to avoid alcohol at all costs while on this medication as the side effects are severe. Over the past few weeks he has lied to be about his whereabouts and I found out that he was going to bars alone and drinking (and driving). Last night we had an explosive argument and decided to call it quits. I thought I would be more angry than sad at this point, but I just can’t believe that he would choose something like alcohol over someone that you want to spend the rest of your life with. It is heart wrenching to see someone who is generally so loving and caring transform into an aggressive, angry, violent man.   The next few months are going to be extremely difficult. We bought a pre-construction home in Oakville together and now have to begin the painful process of parting ways.   I’m only one person and there is only so much I can take. I’m not looking for attention, just a way to openly vent about the situation. Thanks for listening.

Living with Depression and/or Anxiety? Come on in, the door is open
I've been thinking about starting this thread for a while. Tonight while reading an unrelated thread, the topic of depression and anxiety came up once again. I wanted a safe space for others to talk about what's going on with them, how they're feeling, do they need some help? There seems to be a fair number of us here on BT that struggle with depression, I see it pop up frequently.    I personally suffer from chronic depression and anxiety disorder. I was diagnosed with depression in 2003. After a bajillion tests and convinced I had a brain tumor, I was told it was depression. I burst into tears. That was not the answer I wanted and I still didn't believe the doctor. I also had been suffering from panic attacks since around 1997-98. They were getting worse, and I had absolutely no idea what they were. I just thought I was dying, every single time. I started having them daily. Today I am ok. Through lots of trial and error, medications, therapy and hypnotherapy. And also genetic testing, which I urge anyone suffering from chronic depression to get.    I don't personally feel a stigma anymore. I'm very upfront about my condition as I don't think it's a secret to be locked away. Secrets start to haunt us and close us off from the world. If we talk about it, we normalize it. And we find ways to get better.    So feel free to tell your story here, or just part of it. Or just stop by and say hi, I need some help today. Or hey, I can't even get out of bed to brush my teeth because the world feels too heavy today. We already have a love of beauty which binds us together. Let this just be another way for us to connect and make friends.

Guerlain Lingerie de Peau Foundation in 32 Ambre Clair (Asia-Exclusive)?
Hi all!   I really, really, really want to purchase the Lingerie de Peau foundation in the shade 32 Ambre Clair. I am almost positive this will be my perfect match (02 Beige Clair is a little too pink/peachy for me ). However, it's listed as an "Asia-exclusive."   Does any one know of a website that may possibly sell it? I've tried eBay with no luck . Or, would anyone happen to have access (or know anyone that has access) to purchasing this particular shade? If so, please PM me!   I know this might be a stretch, but it doesn't hurt to ask! As always, thank you SO much!

Formula X The System To Go Review
**I wrote this a while back but it kept saying there was profanity so it took me a while to find the one word that was preventing this from getting posted.**   To be totally honest, I really wasn't expecting to actually LIKE Formula X, let alone develop a major crush. I thought that Formula X, being Sephora's in-house nail polish brand, would be equivalent to bad drugstore nail polish. And that I wouldn't waste money on such nonsense.   And then, courtesy of Sephora and Formula X and BeautyTalk, I received a mystery package. You guessed it, it was Formula X's The System To Go (with colour shade Alive).   I told myself I had to try it because I wanted to be on the anti-hype train. But the opposite sort of happened. For a Xmas mani, I decided on trying out The System with that VIB Rouge Formula X renewal shade from who even knows how long ago. So this review is about everything except the colour in this set.   Cleanse: I thought this could be better. The brush was way too small but perfectly sized in all the other bottles. I thought it was essentially nail polish remover. It strips the nail of oils so that your base coat sticks right onto your nails. I could use the bottle of crappy nail polish remover I have sitting around for this instead of spending 13$ on a little polish jar. For the price, I expect to have a large bottle of it. Even my favourite OPI remover costs less.   Prime: I actually really liked this. It applied very well to my nails and it dried quickly (and clear). It did a great job of prepping my nail for colour application. The colour caught on to the base really well and wasn't streaky. I'm still wearing my mani but I'm hoping my nails won't be stained when I remove it. I think I like this as much as I love my all-time favourite Essie base coat!!!   VIB Rouge renewal colour: So I haven't tried Alive, which came with my set. I went for red because I wanted to have a Xmas vibe going on. The polish applied really well and stuck right onto the base coat with no hassle. It was even pretty darn opaque with just one coat. With two, it was perfect. No streaky mess. No bubbling! Yay! I have to say I really really love the polish.   Shine: I usually have very bad experiences with top coats so I wasn't expecting much. I applied two coats just to be sure that it was indeed "fast-drying". Which it actually turned out to be so yay! I didn't wake up with smudges or blanket fluff on my nails!! It sealed in the colour quickly and dried quickly and thoroughly, which is what I need in a so-called fast drying top coat. Also, no bubbles, which is a huge plus. It didn't do any of that weird shrinking of the polish stuff when it dried. I have the perfect mani. My all-time favourite top coat is Essie's Good To Go and this is the first time that any top coat has even come close.   I did my nails around 5-6 days ago and I only have slight chipping on the very edge of the nails that isn't visible. My nails still look like I just did them, except for the little bit where my nail has grown out lol.   All in all, I quite enjoyed this set a lot more than I thought I would. For some reason, my mother and I just had this impression that Formula X would be awful and we were both so very impressed with the performance of these polishes that we might actually start buying them.   The only con is the price point. I can get polishes with the same quality for a lot less. Formula X ranges from 13-18 and I can get Essie for 8-9 and OPI for 10. I just don't think it's feasible unless they have a very unique colour that I can't find elsewhere. The high price is a turn-off for me.   As for this set, it could have been a bit cheaper but was still a decent price if you are like me and didn't want to take the full plunge into the sea of Formula X. If you have nothing to lose, get the full-size version of The System because you save a lot more $$$.

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?

Hey glasses beauties!
Hi BTers with glasses I have a question, my prescription is gonna be renewed soon so that means new glasses, any recommendations for glasses types that don't hide or even enhance your makeup looks? are there any shapes/colors/materials you've found work well with your varied makeup looks or any that didn't work at all? Personal stories and pic are definitely welcome. Thanx for any help you can provide!

I think the metallic colors (gold/silver) are a good suggestion. Another tip I heard was to go with a frame that is the same color as your hair or eyes. You will know th... see post
1015 Hearts and counting...
Thanks for all the hearts. It's neat how I realized BT was a 'thing' only a few months ago and now I'm completely addicted. Lately I haven't been so involved due to personal things but thanks so much for all the hearts and making me feel so welcome and involved in the community! I really love BT for discussing makeup, beauty, and everything in-between. It's so cool. Just wanted to say thanks and it's nice to know there is a community where people can ask questions and not feel 'dumb' nor feel excluded....<3 Cheers!!!
